God Alone Is (2): Man has to unlearn the mass of illusory knowledge

It is not easy for man to accept and keep on accepting under all circumstances, that God IS. Even after his firm acceptance that God is, it is supremely difficult, though not impossible, for him to realize what he has firmly accepted. Realization means that instead of being fully conscious that he is man, man becomes fully conscious that he is God, was God, has always been God and will ever remain God.

Knowingly or unknowingly, man is ever seeking the goal, which is to realize his true Self. The very nearest and innermost to man is his soul, but the fun of it is that he feels far, far away from it. There appears no end to his journeys toward the goal, through the numberless highways and byways of life and death, although the fact is there is no distance to cover. Having achieved full consciousness as man, he has arrived at his destination, and now possesses the capacity to become conscious of his soul. Still he is unable to realize this divine destiny, because his consciousness remains completely focused on his perverted, limited, finite self — the mind — which ironically has been the medium of achieving consciousness.

Before he can know who he is, man has to unlearn the mass of illusory knowledge he has burdened himself with on the interminable journey from unconsciousness to consciousness.
