The Self or the World

When I say you are pure consciousness, what do I mean?
Consciousness is a power that is conscious of itself.
Consciousness is conscious of itself as absolute reality, as effortless pure awareness.
It is all-pervading, takes up all of space, and that’s what you are.
You are steeped in it. You are nothing else but that.
Everything else is an illusion, everything.
Everything you’ve been searching for, everything you’re looking for, all of your hurts, all of your fears, all the things that make you sad, do not exist.
Yet somehow they appear to exist because you feel these things.

Yet going through these experiences myself, when I was a little kid, and transcending them, I can assure you they do not exist.
The world does not exist, as it appears.
The universe does not exist as it appears.
God does not exist as you think he does, or she does or it does.
Your body does not exist as you think it is, as it appears.
Your thoughts and your mind do not exist.
You are absolute reality, total freedom, bliss.
There is nothing to search for any longer.
You have come into your own.
You are totally free right now.
Doesn’t it feel good? Doesn’t it feel good?
(laughter)
