Advaita Vedanta points to what you are - in doing this many concepts and beliefs must be seen as false.
We have a solid belief that there is a ME in this brain, "looking out" the eyes, seeing an "outside" world.
As if the eyes were windows, transparent, like looking out the windows of a house at the city. This same assumption is seen with hearing, smell, taste, touch...
We believe that there is a ME housed or contained in this body, this organism, seeing out the eyes. But the eyes are not windows, they are like "lenses".
The eye receives the input as light - the eye sends this input through nerves, NOT as a "picture" of the "outside world", but as pure data, into the brain. The same thing happens with the nose, the ears, the nerves in the skin for touch, taste buds...
The brain receives this input and TRANSLATES IT. But where does this happen? Where does the picture we're seeing happen? Can it be "outside" of the brain?
A dream is a realistic appearance, complete with a ME that thinks, desires and fears, moves around in an apparently solid world. But the dream happens in what we call "Consciousness." When we awake, it seemed real but we know it was only a dream. Nothing happened to "this body".
But isn't it this same "Consciousness" IN WHICH this appearance happens NOW? This "waking state"? Where else can this picture happen? The wall "over there" is IN HERE! In Consciousness. The picture only happens in Consciousness. Imagine a little projector and screen inside the head - THAT is where the picture happens, not "out there"!
And the YOU you've taken yourself to be, the YOU that has been invested with so much, the life story that has been believed in, the "things" that have been desired, the "path" to Enlightenment or to end suffering, the goals and the meaning and the purpose and the hope and dreams and the happiness and sadness and sense of beingness, the idea of a brain and this translating process, and the very feeling that I AM A PERSON - happens only in Consciousness.
All there is, is Consciousness. The eyes are not windows. Even the idea of "eyes" appears in Consciousness.
Can you get outside of Consciousness?
