[commentary on Master Nome’s Self Knowledge, posted in the Past as No. 17, …]
One’s self – Being-Consciousness-Bliss (Existence-Consciousness-Happiness) remains unchanged, even in Deep Dreamless Sleep, behind all thought, & even in death of the illusory Body. Projection [imaginary] in an objective “direction” results in Attachment to the World & the Senses. Specifically, Projection toward [but never truly reaching an unreal principle] Form results in Mis-identification with the Body. Projection toward [unreal] thought results in Mis-identification with the Mind. Such Projections are a product of self-delusion [the Tamasic dull Avarana veiling aspect of Maya, Ignorance] & the only Ego-supporting obstacles [Rajasic restless Vikshepa projecting aspect of Maya, Ignorance] to Immortal Bliss, our true Identity, or the Reality.
