A Drop

Our mind is only a pressure of consciousness, a concentrated form of awareness. It is not general consciousness but a consciousness particularly directed at a point in space and in time. Concentrated consciousness lodged in a location of space and time is the mind, and freed from the shackles of spatial and temporal relationship, the same mind becomes general consciousness. So the mind which seems to be our vehicle or instrument of thinking is also a drop, as it were, in the oceanic cosmic mind.
