“The Atman is the sole witness, all-pervading, perfect, free Consciousness – actionless, unattached, desireless, at peace with itself. It is only through an illusion that it appears to be involved with samsara.”
Atman/Soul/God Within…is the witness. This is the Awakening, knowing we are Atman and this body/mind unit in the vehicle in which we are traveling the journey of this life in.
Take care of the vehicle but don’t become attached to it. Atman is eternal and this vehicle is but a speck in the timeline of it All.
But when there is attachment illusion happens, through this illusion, the pain and suffering of life in the material world happens.
