Universe- mind created

The universe is only an object created by the mind and has its being in the mind. It cannot be measured as an exterior entity. One must reach the Self in order to reach the universe

One cannot hope to measure the universe and study the phenomena. It is impossible. For the objects are 
mental creations. To measure them is similar to trying to stamp with one’s foot on the head of the shadow cast by oneself. The farther one moves the farther the shadow does also. So one cannot plant one’s foot on the head of the shadow

 This message is that all of manifestation exists only in consciousness. Therefore, in order to resolve the mystery of existence, one should investigate the nature of consciousness and go to the Heart of the source of all perception.
