In this video from the archives, Gangaji clears up any confusion that a “someone” can go out and “get” enlightenment. The question is: Is it you that realizes the truth of consciousness—or is it that consciousness realizes itself in you?
“The personal is a set of clothes that is taken to be real. In taking it to be real, life is then experienced as relative to that set of clothes. It is believed that there is a lower self and a higher self, a little self and a big self, and this is the illusion. Finally, consciousness recognizes itself as free of it all. Free to play in the illusion, free to be free of the illusion. Free.”
