Background

A description of the experience

Chandogya Upanishad

Know that when the eye looks into space it is the Spirit of man that sees; the eye is only the organ of sight. 

When one says ‘I feel this perfume’, it is the Spirit that feels; it uses the organ of smell. 

When one says ‘I am speaking’, it is the Spirit that speaks; the voice is the organ of speech

When one says ‘I am hearing’, it is the Spirit that hears; the ear is the organ of hearing

And when one says ‘I think’, it is the Spirit that hears; the mind is the organ of thought

 

It is because of the light of the Spirit that the human mind can see, and can think and enjoy the world
