Electrical Currents Flash Around the Meat-Brain

ADI DA SAMRAJ: You are constantly imagining that you are experiencing objective things, but you are not. You do not actually see an object–that lamp over there, for instance. It is not the object you are seeing. 
Isn’t it obvious to you that you are experiencing a phenomenon of the brain? You cannot see the lamp. You are not inside your head looking out at the lamp. A bizarre phenomenon of the brain produces the sensation that there is a lamp over there. Where is it anyway? 

A reflected image twists around in the eyeball, 
and nerve impulses and electrical currents flash around the meat-brain 
in order to construct an illusion, 
a sensation, 
an idea. 
What is objective about it? 

It is just your own fascination. It is your own mind. It is your own Consciousness, modified by organs of experience. It is mind. It is harmless enough in itself, really, but you are so distracted by it that you have lost your humor. You have lost your true position. You do not have a right relationship to experience.
The right relationship to all experience is to exist as the Transcendental Consciousness, the Radiant Reality Itself, in which phenomena arise without necessity, humorously. 
The wrong relationship to experiential phenomena is to presume that you are a separate person, a separate consciousness, in the midst of a world that you know nothing about, that somehow encloses you, that is objective to you, that is separate from you. In that case, you see, experience is a very serious business. You have no option but to submit to it, to be distracted and tormented by it.
Spiritual life is simply the Enlightened life. There really is no spiritual life until Enlightenment, or the seventh stage of life.
