‘There is no consciousness without co-consciousness, that which the individual soul shares with the Lord in the heart. When in ignorance of co-consciousness we get carried away by time-driven mental functions, what we “know” looks as if it comes from the mind. When in ignorance we get carried away by time-driven sensory functions, what we “know” looks as if it comes from the senses. But knowledge does not come from the mind and senses, no more than light comes from the cloud covering the sun. To a person in pure consciousness – whose knowledge is not obstructed by the cloud of maya – what he knows comes from God: His timeless richness, strength, fame, beauty, knowledge and renunciation’
(Suhotra Swami, Transcendental Personalism, p.53)
