IA Participant: Our unconsciousness is the main reason, source for all our suffering and that is what is stopping us from being in the enlightened state. The question is: Where and when it started?
Swamiji: See, where and when has no answer, because the where and when itself happened after the unconsciousness happened. Please understand, it is like you can ask when that cotton started becoming thread. There is no answer for this. For example, when the mud became a building? It became brick at one point, then the bricks became the building. Mud has not become building. Mud became brick, brick became building. So, your consciousness became Time and Space, and that Time and Space created bondage in you. So, from the bondage level you cannot ask how my consciousness made me bound. Understand, with words, still I am struggling to explain. Because, in your original state, there is no Time and Space. Time and Space itself is an illusion. Inside that illusion only, you are bound.
IA Participant: So how to solve this? This is the right question.
The answer is: Completion! Completion with yourself and Time, which you are going to be doing now in a very powerful way, will solve the whole thing.
