Sri Ramanopadesa Noonmalai

 Our mind cannot survive without constantly dwelling upon thoughts, which it is perpetually forming within itself. Though it imagines some of its thoughts to be objects that exist in a world that appears to be outside itself, that seemingly external world actually arises only within itself as a series of mental images, just as the world that it experiences in a dream does. Having formed itself as its primal imagination ‘I am this body’, our mind then imagines that through the five senses of that body it is experiencing a world outside itself. However both this body and world are mere imaginations — that is, they are both just thoughts or mental images that our mind has formed within itself.
