The Mind & Heart of God


by Raymond Reichman-Israelsohn

A lamp that does not flicker in a windless place,

To such is compared a yogi of subdued thought

Practising Union with the Self

Bhagavad Gita (Maharishi Translation)

The Yoga of Maditation (Dhyana Yoga)

Chapter VI,Verse 19

From Chapter Six | Physicality: Embodiment


Reality has its source and foundation in the infinite Mind of God, totally without physicality and totally without embodiment. The physicality (the so-called ‘reality’) is nothing other than a mind-construct, a dream, a mental conditioning. Without the dreamer there is no dream. Without the seer nothing is seen. Everything seen is in the mind and in the eye of the beholder. Reality is what we make it.

This is defined in Vedantic Scripture as ‘mind.’ Mind is the emergence from the Infinite absolute of a finite relativity of subject and object. It helps to restate that seminality: The emergence of the finite relativity of subject and object from the absolute of Infinity (in which absolute such subject and object are one) constitutes mind. Mind does not exist in the Infinite. It exists only in the relative. The object cannot exist without its subject to conceptualise and perceive it, and vice versa. They are in bondage to each other. The bondage of our ego to its conceptualised object imprisons us (vasana). Until we free ourselves (nirvana).

Physical Science seeks knowledge of reality as an object to be known by the scientist as subject relative to that object. This imprisons the knowledge within the scientist-subject’s senses and mind – within the finite. The scientist eschews infinity because infinity cannot be ‘known’ as an object of enquiry relative to a separate subject. But when that search arrives at the paradoxes of relativity that define the limits of the relative, confusion reigns unless the scientist is willing to transcend the relative by continuing his pursuit of knowledge of reality beyond his senses and mind, beyond his sense of self (his psychic ego) as subject relative to an object… This is done through the doors of the Cosmological Constants into Infinity…and the door is so wide open…
