Is the Universe only subjective? Or is there an objective view to the Universe?
Sri Bhagavan :
"As you go deeper, that is, as you achieve expansion in Consciousness, things look different from what they appear now. At this level of Consciousness, the Universe appears as some thing; but as you go deeper into Consciousness, it expands. When you achieve 100 [%] consciousness, the Universe appears totally different from what you can see now. Our experience now has nothing to do with what we experience when the Consciousness gets expanded. We need to go deep into ourselves. How is it done? .....
Mystically speaking, that is activating the chakras and raising your Kundalini. Scientifically speaking, it is activating the ductless glands and setting right the electrical system in the body. Once that is done, you achieve an expanded Consciousness and of course, if it expands beyond a point, you leave the physical body. You experience the Universe without the physical body.
The Universe is very, very different from what you know it is. Space and Time vanish. Cause and Effect vanish. Past, Present, and Future vanish. Everything vanishes. We can no more talk of past lives, future lives; you see all things running concurrently. This life, past life, and future life, everything goes on simultaneously.
With all this, the subject-object division is gone. Subject and Object, that is, the subjective experience and the objective experience is Maya [illusion]. But all this becomes One when you move into higher levels of Consciousness.
We do intend to give you these experiences in future so that you can drop these earth-bound ideas, which are responsible for so many of your problems. It is like wearing some kind of glasses and looking at the world. This body is some kind of glasses which you are wearing to experience the world. Suppose you could quit the body - you don't die as you imagine - you could look at this world and that would be very, very different.
Basically all divisions get removed as you go into expanded levels of Consciousness. When you move out of the body, all kinds of divisions - whatever the divisions be - disappear. You move more and more and more into Oneness. That would be your experience.
So you will no more talk about subject and object.”
