Without the light of the sun, nothing can be seen. Light is the greatest sculptor. It reveals the forms of all things. Salutations to the sun. Without the light of consciousness, neither the sun, nor its light nor anything else can be seen. Salutations to consciousness. Without you, where is the world? Without you, what would perceive the play of existence? In satsang, you are introduced again and again to consciousness, which is your own light. You come to the recognition that consciousness itself is the source of all manifestation and that without it, nothing can be perceived to exist. You are both consciousness and simultaneously the perceiver of consciousness. Are you aware of this? Without you, the perceiver of consciousness, neither consciousness nor its content exist. The universe is… because you are.
