Consciousness Is the Self
A human being is always a body. Even when he says “my mind,” you should know that he is saying “my body.” So man is always forgetful about the Self. In other words, he does not know at all that the Self is. Why is it that he does not grasp, understand, or realize? Because his consciousness is inflamed with this mental awareness, with which he is convinced that this awareness is right and true because the body is known. So his knowing mind is always mobile, flowing, or functioning, and this functioning is making him call the Self as the body. He thinks that he is the body and he never hears that he is the Self.
