The radiance of consciousness-bliss in the form of one awareness shining equally within and without is the supreme and blissful primal reality whose form is Silence and which is declared by Jnanis (Realized Ones) to be the final and unobstructable state of true knowledge – Ramana Maharishi
Sadhu Om’s note: Because the body, which is limited in time and space, is mistaken to be “I”, everyone has the feeling “I am only inside the body and not outside”. If the body is not thus taken to be “I”, there will be no room for the feeling of difference “in” and “out.” In such a state the Self-awareness “I am”, which shines as the one consciousness devoid of “in” or “out,” is itself the true knowledge, the whole and perfect primal reality.
Notice Jesus’s words in the Gospel of Thomas:
Gospel of Thomas 22.
Jesus saw some babies nursing. He said to his disciples, “These nursing babies are like those who enter the (Father’s) kingdom.”
They said to him, “Then shall we enter the (Father’s) kingdom as babies?”Jesus said to them, “When you make the two into one, and when you make the inner like the outer and the outer like the inner, and the upper like the lower, and when you make male and female into a single one, so that the male will not be male nor the female be female, when you make eyes in place of an eye, a hand in place of a hand, a foot in place of a foot, an image in place of an image, then you will enter [the kingdom].”
