“The world [we] perceive […]”

Nisargadatta Maharaj asserts the following with regard to the mind and matter: “The world you perceive is made of consciousness; what you call matter is consciousness itself.”

What, I wonder, are your thoughts on this sentiment . . .

  1. Seems true to me. Seems that is much of what I was taught growing up. Seems hard to wrap my mind around even after 70 years. Sounds like a prayer and a moment of grace.


  2. About thoughts on this sentiment, as to matter being consciousness itself. Maybe a metaphor correctly framed, it may have some vague merit as an issue of consciousness, yet the word matter describes physical or material substance, or the negation of consequence, all of which I find hard to associated with issues of consciousness. However I suppose Nisargadatta Maharaj can claim whatever he can convince his readers to believe!


  3. that which we perceive, conceive, believe can be achieved . . . .
