keeper of time (16)
The Professor asked Sri Bhagavan to extend His Grace to him
although he would soon be a thousand miles off. Sri Bhagavan
said that time and space are only concepts of mind. But swarupa
(the Real Self) lies beyond mind, time and space. Distance does
not count in the Self.
There is only one consciousness. But we speak of
several kinds of consciousness, as body-consciousness,
Selfconsciousness. They are only relative states of the same Absolute
consciousness. Without consciousness, time and space do not exist.
They appear in consciousness. It is like a screen on which these
are cast as pictures and move as in a cinema show. The Absolute
consciousness is our real nature.
