The state of Human Consciousness is such that it is difficult to comprehend that there could be something untouched by all this mess. Merely dreaming of a already pure land is not going to liberate anyone anymore than wishful thinking could alleviate the condition of a pauper. The lazy will have to shake up the sloth and inertia to achieve anything. Investigating into nature of bondage and freedom are good to shake up mental lethargy at least. Though true transformation comes from an understanding that consequently produces action. So let us see what causes the present state of all the chaos inside and as seen in society.

The essence of all the mess that we see is nothing but desire and greed. Whatever a man gets in this world is a result of desire and effort which requires appropriate payment but we like to carry debts and an unmanageable burden of it can numb us and make the consciousness to fall. In any case the gravitational pull keeps us all tied to the condition of Human Consciousness present at any particular time and are we not supposed to be in Kaliyuga which signifies the lowest level of prevailing consciousness.

Between these two i e the present state of consciousness and fully liberated one lies the intermediary which could be termed Unity-Consciousness. This is an attempt to peep into the seeming appearances and get a foretaste of the things to come. Those who merely imagine to have reached the unconditioned without passing through this narrow gate are dreaming and no wonder viewing world as a dream suits their outlook.

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: (Matthew 7:13)

Because narrow is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads unto life, and few there be that find it. (Matthew 7:14)

Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. (Matthew 7:15)
