ConsciousnessEarth-bound consciousness tells me that I am of ignorance and I am for ignorance, that my source is darkness and my journey is darkness, that at the end of my journey’s close, into darkness I shall retire.
Heaven-free consciousness tells me that I am not the pilgrim, I am not the road, I am not the journey, but I am the Goal itself. This is the message that we receive from our Heaven-free consciousness.
