The Realisation of the Absolute :3-4-1

Chapter 3: The Need for Integral Knowledge -4


Becoming the object seems to be the aim of the subject in its processes of desireful knowledge.

The greater the proximity of the object to the subject, that is, the lesser the distance between the subject and the object, the greater is the happiness derived; whereby we are able to deduce that the least distance, nay, the loss of distance itself in a state of identity, a state of infinite oneness, where things lose their separateness, where perception and relatedness are no more, where the subject and the object coalesce and mere "Be"-ness seems to be the reality, should be the abode of supreme bliss.

This consciousness-mass is the one integration of knowledge where it is no more a means of knowing but the essence, the existence and the content in itself.

The Upanishads are keen about turning our attention to this truth.
