Bhagavan elaborated on this in an explanation he gave to Lakshmana Sarma:

If the eye that sees be the eye of flesh, then gross forms are seen; if the eye be assisted by lenses, then even invisible things are seen to have form; if the mind be that eye, then subtle forms are seen; thus the seeing eye and the objects seen are of the same nature; that is, if the eye be itself a form, it sees nothing but forms. But neither the physical eye nor the mind has any power of vision of it’s own. The real eye is the Self; as he is formless, being the pure and infinite consciousness, the reality, he does not see forms.
[MahaYoga p83]

AS YOU ARE SO IS YOUR EXPERIENCE

52 If one corrects one’s gross vision, transforming it into the eye of jnana, and if one attentively views [the world] with that eye of truth that is wholly jnana, then the world which was previously seen as the form of the five elements, beginning with space, will be only the Brahman that is entirely consciousness. (GVK)

This idea appears in Ulladu Narpadu, verse 4:
Bhagavan: If one’s self is a form, then it follows that the world and the Supreme will have form also. If one’s self is not a form, who is there to see their forms, and how? Is there anything that is seen whose nature is other than that of the eye [that sees]? That eye is in reality the Self, the infinite eye.

'Fig' contains, the ancient tradition holds, a subtle essence which is capable of producing "spiritual quietude". I had read in 1960s in the Russian Government magazine, "SPUTNIK " that Russian scientists had done research on 'Figs' and had discovered that it did contain a chemical which in human system was found in between the eye-brows. And that, this fluid helped one to concentration and meditation, with one-pointed attention !

Devotee: Can't a Guru give us realization as a gift?

Sri Bhagavan : The Guru is a very powerful aid on the path, but your effort is also essential; it is 'you' who 'sees' the Sun -- can your spectacles do it for you? You have to 'see' your 'True Nature'.

Meditation is what makes any individual steady, peaceful and capable, because he finds his way to the Self, which is limitless, and holds all the treasury which the world is aware of.

Get the mercy of God and of his greatest children. These are the two chief ways to God. The company of these children of light is very hard to get. Five minutes in their company will change a whole life. And if you really want it enough, one will come to you.

D.: I want to know how I can gain that peace of mind. Kindly be pleased to advise me.
M.: Yes - devotion and surrender.

D.: Am I worthy of being a devotee?
M.: Everyone can be a devotee. Spiritual fare is common to all and never denied to anyone - be the person old or young, male or female.

D.: That is exactly what I am anxious to know. I am young and a grihini (housewife). There are duties of grihastha dharma (the household). Is devotion consistent with such a position?

M.: Certainly. What are you? You are not the body. You are Pure Consciousness. Grihastha dharma and the world are only phenomena appearing on that Pure Consciousness. It remains unaffected. What prevents you from being your own Self?

Question No 19: What is non-attachment?

Bhagawan: As thoughts arise, destroying them utterly without any residue in the very place of their origin is non-attachment. Just as the pearl-diver ties a stone to his waist, sinks to the bottom of the sea and there takes the pearls, so each one of us should be endowed with non-attachment, dive within oneself and obtain the Self-Pearl.

All is attended to in the minutest detail and yet there is a sense of unreality about it all. So is the case with me. All happens as it needs, yet nothing happens. I do what seems to be necessary, but at the same time I know that nothing is necessary, that life itself is only make-believe.
