Spirit and Matter.
« on: December 01, 2012, 06:50:06 PM »

A young man asked, 'Are thoughts mere matter?'

Maharshi: What do you mean? Do you mean 'matter' like the things you see around you?

Devotee: Yes. Gross.

Maharshi: Who asks this question? Who is the thinker?

Devotee. The thinker is the spirit.

Maharshi: Do  you then mean that spirit generates matter?

Devotee: I want to know.

Maharshi: How do you distinguish matter and spirit?

Devotee: Spirit is Consciousness, and the other not.

Maharshi: Can Consciousness generate non consciousness, or light, darkness?

Arunachala Siva.
