Only by forgetting this primitive world of metaphor can one live with any repose, security, and consistency: only by means of the petrification and coagulation of a mass of images which originally streamed from the primal faculty of human imagination like a fiery liquid, only in the invincible faith in this sun, this window, this table is a truth in itself, in short, only by forgetting that he himself is an artistically creative subject, does man live with any repose, security, and consistency.
The drive toward the formation of metaphors is the fundamental human drive, which one cannot for a single instant dispense with in thought, for one would thereby dispense with man himself. ~Nietzsche

Cosmic consciousness can be considered in a way to be the soul of Nature, limitless as the universe, all-embracing. That part of cosmic consciousness that is in us is the individual conscience. It is in closest proximity to the Soul, and therefore has a very special relationship with soul. This is where soul infuses matter, a bridge between Soul and Nature. That is why conscience will only ever tell you one thing, offer one course of action, because it comes out of Oneness. Intuition transcends rationality and is from the heart. ~B.K.S. Iyengar
