MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 16-1-2.
Chapter 16-Thought Creates The World-1-2.
1. Thought, The Origin Of Everything : 2.
"Cogito, ergo sum-I think, therefore I am."
This is Descartes's fundamental basis of philosophy.
This is in accordance with Sri Sankara's statement that the Atman cannot be illusive; for he who would deny it, even in denying it, witnesses its reality.
The universe is rendered visible by mind.
But, it is a pity that nobody has seen the mind save a seer.
When you seriously and unceasingly think over the nature of the mind, it is nothing.
When you begin to analyse Universe,
It dwindles to airy nothing.
It is a bundle of thoughts and the thought 'I' is the root of all thoughts.
This 'I' is a false idea, a non-entity.
When the root of all thoughts vanishes into nothing, where is the boasted mind?
The first thought that arose in your mind was 'Aham', 'I'.
The last thought or Vritti that will arise in the mind before it is absorbed in Brahman will be Brahmakara Vritti which is produced by your feeling that you are Infinity.
