Consciousness is the Go-Between
… the messenger
Consciousness goes between that which is perceived
and the realisation of pure, inner essence.
If the messenger gets distracted by outer phenomena,
it loses contact with the pure, inner, absolute sovereign
and becomes a slave to idols.
This messenger has many names: Manas of the Upanishads, Hermes of the Greeks, Mercury of the Romans, Apt of the Ancient Egyptians … It is the organ of the mind that fetches messages by scanning the mind for information: some may call this the voice of God.
Incidentally, if the message isn’t quite clear, ask for clarification. This can be immediate or could take time – or there isn’t enough data. It is a messenger that clarifies.
