Whereas existence is singular,
It can take on an infinite number of shapes.
The nature of unity is this
Existence, consciousness and fullness,
Whereas the nature of
The world emanating from this unity is
Name and form.
The latter is not so much an illusion as
It is a distortion.
The reality perceived in everyday waking consciousness is a distortion
Much as a stick in water appears broken
Because of the refracting light.
It is That out of which
The sense of the personal ‘I’ arises and
Into which it disappears.
It is the first thought to come and
It is the last to go.

(from Mindless Understanding)
