ADI DA SAMRAJ: Mind is not
merely in the brain and less than the brain. Mind is the
circumstance of consciousness in its association with
objects of all kinds. Mind is universal, infinite in extent.
And if we put ourselves into a position to explore the roots
of experiencing, we are going to enter into a realm of mind
in which we realize mind to be greater than mere daily
thinking and social consciousness.

Those who take up the discipline of
yogic mysticism learn in the process to become responsible
for the tendencies of mind and attention that cause certain
experiences to arise, or cause attention to gravitate toward
one or another kind of phenomenon, or cause limiting
interpretations to be superimposed on experience. Through
the science of yogic mysticism, living beings can enter into
a pure perception of the mechanism of our
existence.

But mind is greater than we conceive
mind to be from the purely physical point of view. What you
are seeing at the present moment is actually a vision. You
are having a vision at this moment. You know that you are
seeing, but you do not generally acknowledge or presume that
you are having a vision. Rather, you are identified with a
physically embodied state in this gross environment, and you
see and hear on that basis. Thus, you are not generally in a
position to understand the nature of your own
experiencing.

It is more or less common knowledge,
at the present time, that you are not merely seeing what is
external in this room. Your seeing is, in fact, an
electronic apparition, developed in the nervous system of
the brain. You have no direct connection to the gross
object, or objects, that you are seeming to view at the
present time. In other words, you are having a vision. You
are not merely seeing a gross environment, but you are
having a vision of a gross environment.

Because of the tendency to be
identified with the body, and also because of all the taboos
associated with conventional consciousness in this world,
people do not investigate, or thoroughly explore and
consider, the status of their own experience in any
moment.
