The ideas introduced in the first part of the book do not provide an answer but facilitate each one of us to think out our own solutions, based on one's own personal experiences. To know how to distinguish between the perceptions of the "menacing snake" seen on the Rope when waking in the dark or in poor light and the knowledge through validated analysis that confirms it is only a rope. The illusion of the "snake" disappears, as it is resolved in the light of the validated knowledge. We know that the earth is round, but our perception shows it as flat. We place our feet on the ground as though it was flat and this does not cancel the knowledge that the earth is round. We continue with our perceptions but we need no longer escalate the perception of illusions into an emotional drama of sensations that dictates our thinking. What is suggested here in these essays is in "seeing" that knowledge which is based on personal experience...The second part of this book "pot- Space" celebrates the Vision of "Being". When I "see", then I recognize the unique Oneness, which runs through everything in this creation however intricate or simple the design. The example to illustrate this is the pot and Space "Ghatakasa is Chidakasa".The space in the pot is the same as the Space everywhere. When the pot is broken it is not as if the space inside joins with the space outside. There is no inside outside for Space. For some time a pot defined it, the pot breaks, Space Is. Our Being is eternal a part of the Total Reality. For a while we have a name and form. When these drop off, Being is.
