This is such a beautiful way to describe the limitations of the human mind. Often we get so caught up in our ‘little screw’ state that we forget about the whole machine (the Universe) let alone seek to know it. We get indignant and resentful and frustrated and we lose sight of the larger picture at whole. One human amongst 7.8 billion. There are 8.7 million species on Earth. They believe that 1-2 million of those species are animals. The same study estimates that 86% of all land species and 91% of all sea species have not yet been discovered or described. (1) Our soul has reincarnated down into this one little human body, to learn all the lessons we can and evolve. From the exact standpoint of this moment in time, how could we possibly know what all of that is to mean for us? We cannot. But we can marvel in awe at the whole game of it, and go with the flow instead of fighting it. Be less of an uptight little screw, and more of one kind, compassionate piece connected to the whole, enormous machine.
Also if you like the quote above by Ramesh Balsekar I would recommend diving into his teachings. The book Consciousness Speaks is a lovely starting point, and you can watch lots of video’s of his online too with his recorded talks. He was a student of Nisargadatta Maharaj’s (who wrote I Am That) and he has a wonderful way of speaking about consciousness.
