Limitations of Five Senses and Human Conscious in Exploring Truth
Five senses could not help us to get the answers to these truthful questions. Rather they act as gravity or centripetal force to restrict any meditation gets the flight away from the orbit of five senses. Our five senses rule over us. They never wish to have any power sharing with our spiritual or moral forces. Let say if we want to go for worship, five senses would allure us to take sleep or find fun in doing any self-pleasing thing, if we want to give charity the five senses will tell us it is better to spend this money or at least a part of it on our physical wellbeing. Five senses act very smartly. They never allow us to realize our spiritual existence, needs and beliefs unless they can be as clear as our physical phenomena, beliefs and world.
In other words five senses keep us to apply five senses criteria to recognize spiritual matters- so five senses (rationale) are highly biased and one way or other, they keep us away from truly understanding our spiritual part, inner world, because if we do so then five senses would be disciplined and we all involve in one or other form of ‘self-worship’, which would be at stake. There is also very serious and inherited flaw with ‘human conscious’ that it cannot conceive moral and spiritual hidden realities but only give stimulant and response over them. We need some extra-ordinary factor and source to break the vicious circle of five senses to explore Truth.
