The man identifies himself with others. This Identification occurs when he associates and becomes one with it. This means when there is no gap between the object and the subject identification occurs.
For example, if there is a pain in my hand, and I say my hand is painful. In Reality, it’s not the Truth. Reality is something different. There is a pain in the hand and my consciousness which is in my head tells me that there is a pain in the hand. I just become aware of the pain. I am only a ‘Witness’ to the pain. But, if I identify with the pain, then I myself will feel that my hand is painful. There is no Space left to distinguish. Building a Space in between the object and the subject is becoming ‘SAKSHI’. But associating myself with the pain results in becoming an Experiencer and not the WITNESS. This False Association creates Miseries in Life. The pain is not happening to me but the pain is Witnessed by me. I am ‘SAKSHI’ to the pain in the hand. This phenomenon of creating a space is becoming ‘Sakshi’.
Pain is somewhere else, I am somewhere else. My Identification is now broken. Else without breaking it, I become pain myself. Remember, pain is not happening to consciousness, it is happening before it. But if I say my hand is paining then because of keeping no space in between my consciousness and the hand, I experience pain. This is Fiction of Mind. Pain can never happen to Consciousness. Consciousness is just a Reflection. It mirrors whatsoever comes in front of it, it never identifies. But this mirroring can also go deep into the Consciousness due to the mind’s habit of fictional Identification.
An assumption can be made about what is Mirrored. Mirror only Reflects. We are also like a Conscious Mirror. When something is present before us, it reflects. But because of the mind, instead of Reflections, this image gets identified with the object. This identification is Bondage and Liberation from this Fictional Bondage is becoming ‘Witness’ – ‘Sakshi’
