When you try to stop motion to achieve quietude,
the very effort fills you with activity.
As long as you hold on to opposites
you will never know the One Way.

As you stop reacting to person, place or thing, as you stop judging, as you stop bothering people, as you stop asking questions, everything will unfold at a fast rate of speed.
You will find that you're already free.
So to be liberated you just have to know that you are already liberated.
And you know that you are already liberated when you have an empty mind.
When there are no thoughts going on in your mind.
When there are no questions going on in your mind.
When you're not looking for answers.
When you stop looking for anything.
You no longer care about looking, searching, seeking.
You become the epitome of compassion, of love.

S> Robert, how can I become more loving?

R> By understanding who you are.
By realizing you're not the person who is not loving.
That person does not exist.
By realizing you are God.
Your real nature is God, and God is all love.
The one you are referring to who is not loving does not exist.
Do not feed that person energy.
You are feeding a non-entity energy.
Do not do this.
Love is your real nature.
Love is what you really are.
Get rid of the other by not giving it power by thinking about it, by not responding to it, by not looking at it as a real person.
Lift up your eyes.
Stand up tall.
Know who you really are, and you will see that you are already love.

Do not try to stop anything.
Simply inquire,
"To whom does this come?"
Always go back to the inquiry.
----------
S> Continuous.
R> Continuous.
"Who thinks these thoughts?
What is their source?
To whom do all these thoughts come?"
Never let a day go by when you do not do that and as you persevere, something will begin to give, ultimately.
----------
S> It is a strange feeling or something that happens?
R> To whom is it strange?
All these things you have to inquire.
"Who has the strange feelings?
Who feels this way?
Who feels that way?
To whom does this come?"
And as you do the thoughts will come less and less.
And the space between the thoughts will expand greater and greater everyday.

VIJNANA BHAIRAVA TANTRA

Those devotees of the guru, who are without the slightest
doubt or hesitation, O gazelle-eyed one, having renounced son, wife, relatives, home, village, kingdom and country,
should be accepted for initiation.

The (worldly accoutrements) are all temporary, O Goddess,
but this supreme wealth is everlasting.

One may give up even one's prana (life energy), but this
teaching which is the supreme nectar should never be given
up. The auspicious goddess said: O great Lord Shankara,
God of gods, I am now fully satisfied.

Today I have understood the quintessence of Rudrayamala
Tantra and also the heart (innermost core) of all the
different shaktis.

Thus saying, the goddess being steeped in delight
embraced Shiva.

O Goddess, this most excellent teaching, which is said to
lead to the immortal state, should verily not be revealed to
anybody.

These teachings should not be disclosed to other disciples,
to those who are evil and cruel, or to those who have not
surrendered to the feet of the guru. They should only be
revealed to advanced souls, who are self-controlled and
whose minds arc lice of vikalpas.

Do not try to become anything.
Do not make yourself into anything.
Do not be a meditator.
Do not become enlightened.
When you sit, let it be.
What you walk, let it be.
Grasp at nothing.
Resist nothing.
If you haven’t wept deeply,
you haven’t begun to meditate.

VIJNANA BHAIRAVA TANTRA

One's own self is verily the all-pervasive bliss of freedom
and the essence of consciousness. Absorption into that
nature or form of one's own self is said to be the real bath
(purification).

There is a silence in you.
It is always here, constant and unmovable.
It is not doing anything.
Be aware of this.
It is simply here but it didn't arrive.
You are not a person here.
In the silence itself, you are without history, name and form.
Recognise that space here now which simply is.
It underlies all activity,
but itself does not participate in any activity.
Notice and confirm this now,
and stay in your beautiful rest.

VIJNANA BHAIRAVA TANTRA

By being established in any one of the practices (described)
here, whatever (experience) is produced, develops day by
day until the state of absolute fullness or satisfaction is
attained.
The real oblation is (made) when the elements and sense
perceptions along with the mind are poured as oblation
into the fire of the great void (i.e. bhairava or supreme
consciousness) using the consciousness as a ladle.
O supreme Goddess, Parvati, here the sacrifice
characterized by bliss and satisfaction becomes the saviour
of all by the destruction of all sins.

When a person has realized,
a universal life-current takes possession of him
and he becomes an instrument in its hands.
His own separate will is gone.
This is the real Self-surrender.
This is the highest kundalini (the divine cosmic energy),
this is real bhakti (devotion),
this is jnana (knowledge of the Self).

Offering of flowers, etc. is not pooja, or worship, but
making one's mind steady in mahakasha, the great void,
(and thoughtless) in nirvikalpa is worship indeed. From
such reverence, dissolution (of mind) takes place.

of the divine with a body, eyes, mouth, hands, etc. is not

Love unconditionally. Don’t ask anything in return. Much comes on its own, that’s another thing. Don’t be a beggar. In love be an emperor. Just give it and see what happens. A thousandfold it comes back. But one has to learn it. Otherwise one remains a miser. One gives a little and waits for much to come back, and your waiting, your expectation, destroys the whole beauty of it.

When the mind appears every morning don’t jump to the usual conclusion, “This is me; these thoughts are mine.” Instead, watch these thoughts come and go without identifying with them in any way. If you can resist the impulse to claim each and every thought as your own, you will come to a startling conclusion: you will discover that you are the consciousness in which the thoughts appear and disappear. You are allowed to run free. Like the snake which appears in the rope, you will discover that the mind is only an illusion which appears through ignorance or misperception.

Completion is nothing but coming to terms with reality. Come to terms with reality NOW. Let reality not bring powerlessness in you; lead you to incompletion; make you suffer. Go to Manikarnika ghat in Varanasi and sit for 3 days in that atmosphere. When you see so many bodies continuously burning so much of introspection will happen in you. Automatically your inner-space will start getting burnt. You will identify yourself as one of the bodies and Mahadeva will liberate you with the Tharaka mantra. Once in a while you should remember the truth. The reality of death is not at all depressing. If you sit with the right understanding it will bring SO much joy in you. SO much completion in you. Coming to terms with reality IS completion. I am not saying you should change it. Or that you should accept reality. All I am saying is that you need to come to terms with reality. No powerlessness. I will be powerful; you will be powerful; Let both of us be friends. I sincerely recommend to all my devotees; all my disciples; I give you this as my experiential instruction. Please go and spend at least 3 days in Manikarnika Ghat of Varanasi seeing these bodies getting burnt. Just seeing will teach you so many things about death. The way death is treated there. That very context will teach you all the lessons you need to learn in life. Coming to terms with reality is completion. It gives you the power of Kalpataru. WHATEVER you want goes on becoming reality. Every time you have incompletion be very clear you are not coming to terms with reality. Coming to terms with reality is completion. The you will simply have intelligence spontaneously as to whether you should change or whether you should change reality. You will not have the attitude of COMPETING. You will have the attitude of COMPLETING.

People don't go to heaven or hell when they die. No one goes anywhere, when they are alive, what space (inner mental setup) they are in, that same space continues that's all... While you are alive make heaven for yourself. Let Reality not make you suffer, coming to terms with reality is completion.

You often say,
“I would give, but only to the deserving.”
The trees in your orchard say not so,
nor the flocks in your pasture.
They give so that they may live,
for to withhold is to perish.

God, on being worshipped, bestows steadiness in devotion which leads to surrender. On the devotee surrendering, God shows His mercy by manifesting as the Guru. The Guru, otherwise God, guides the devotee, saying that God is in you and He is the Self. This leads to introversion of the mind and finally to realization.

BHAGAVAN'S DIALOGUE WITH AN AMERICAN LADY

The following questions were asked by an aristocratic-looking American lady. Bhagavan's answers are a succinct summary of his practical teachings.

Question: What is the truth that I have to attain? Please explain it and show it to me.

Bhagavan: What we have to attain and what is desired by everyone is endless happiness. Although we seek to attain it in various ways, it is not something to be sought or attained as a new experience.

Our real nature is the 'I' feeling which is experienced by everyone. It is within us and nowhere else.

Although we are always experiencing it, our minds are wandering, always seeking it, thinking in ignorance that it is something apart from us. This is like a person saying with his own tongue that he has no tongue.

Question: If this is so, why did so many sadhanas [spiritual
practices] come to be created?

Bhagavan: The sadhanas came to be formed only to get rid of the thought that it [the Self] is something to be newly attained.

The root of the illusion is the thought which ignores the Self and which thinks instead, 'I am this body'.
After this thought rises it expands in a moment into several thousand thoughts and conceals the Self. The reality of the Self will only shine if all these thoughts are removed. Afterwards, what remains is only Brahmananda [the
bliss of Brahman].

Question: I am now sitting peacefully without the thought 'I am this body'. Is this the state of reality?

Bhagavan: This state must remain as it is without any change.
If it changes after a while you will know that other thoughts have not gone.

When we wake up in bed on Monday morning and think of the various hurdles we’ve got to jump that day, immediately we feel sad. Bored and bothered. Whereas actually we’re just lying in bed.
