Seven Wonders

Khalil Gibran once said that people will never understand one another unless language is reduced to seven words. What would your seven words be?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us SEVEN.

“Brahma Satyam Jagat Mithya,
Jeevo Brahmaiva Na-Aparah”
These 7 words appear in the Mandukya Upanishad a hindu spiritual text.  The meaning of these words are : Brahman (Consciousness) is the only reality -This world is an illusiion. This self and consciousness are one and the same.

The world is an illusion, it includes birth, life and death, which happens within the world.  Thus the seekers main aim is to mentally trace the formless substance of the illusion,  which is also the witness of the illusion. The formless substance and witness of the illusion  (world) is the Atman, and this Atman itself is Brahman.

“From the standpoint of the waking entity the universe is a reality from the standpoint of the soul, the innermost self, the universe is mere illusion created out of consciousness. When wisdom dawns then one realizes the whole universe is consciousness. The dualistic view is possible only in ignorance. At the dawn of Self-knowledge or Brahma Gnana or Atma Gnana there is only non-dualistic view in the midst of duality because the whole universe is consciousness.
Thus all the contents of the universe are also consciousness. Thus form, time and space are mere illusion created out of consciousness. If the form time and space are consciousness than the experience birth,  life and death also consciousness.

The word Brahman means ultimate truth or reality which cannot be indicated by any word.  The Brahman can be expressed through silence because it is beyond the experience form, time and space.  The final use of pursuit of truth is to know that self is consciousness.
