' All is temporary '...
How do you understand anything?
Any knowledge of any kind that you think you have can only be in the consciousness.
How can the consciousness, which came later, give you any knowledge about that state which exists prior to its arrival?
Any thought that you have reached or are going to reach that state is false.
Whatever happens in consciousness is purely imaginary, an hallucination; therefore, keep in mind the knowledge that it is consciousness in which everything is happening.
With that knowledge, be still, do not pursue any other thoughts which arise in consciousness.
What is necessary is to understand with sure conviction is that all is temporary, and does not reflect your true state.
~ Nisargadatta Maharaj
