Nobody wants you to be free because when you're free no one can control you. It's not that you are uncontrolled, it's not that you are a rebel! Only one who knows the beauty of coming home to your own self will encourage you.

This desire for freedom must arise from within your own being

When you practice Self-Inquiry and follow the thoughts back to its source, the whole secret is to realize, there is no source to your thoughts.
It is only the source that exist, but there is no source for your thoughts, for your body, for your mind.
That has no source.
For Brahman is self-contained absolute reality.
There are no thoughts in Brahman.
Brahman is not a source.
Brahman is something beyond words and thoughts.
Something that you alone can experience.
In other words Brahman can be experienced.
Not as anything you're aware of now, not as a person, place or thing but as life experiences itself.
Ponder these things deeply.

IT IS THE MIND THAT IMAGINES THAT IT DOES NOT KNOW AND
THEN COMES TO KNOW.......

All talk of ‘gnana’ (knowledge) is a sign of ignorance. It is the mind that imagines that it does not know and then comes to know. Reality knows nothing of these contortions. Even the idea of God as the Creator is false. Do I owe my being to another being? Because ‘I am’ all ‘is’.

My teacher told me to hold on to the sense ‘I am’ tenaciously and
not to swerve from it even for a moment. I did my best to follow
his advice and in a comparatively short time I realized within
myself the truth of his teaching. All I did was to remember his
teaching, his face, his words constantly. This brought an end to the
mind, in the stillness of the mind I saw myself as I am – unbound.

A Sage does not belong to this world or to the universe.
Therefore a Sage does not become interested in healing or this would put a Sage on a plane of relativity.
We will not judge who is a Sage or who is not.
But the fact remains in Advaita Vedanta we do not try to heal people.
By your very presence healings may take place, just by being.
This is why it's so important to work on yourself, transcending your body and the world, going beyond health, sickness, wealth, poverty, good, bad, going beyond this duality.
And coming to the place where there is ultimate oneness.
Where you have become pure being.

I have no desire for wealth or possessions, and so I have nothing. I do not experience the initial suffering of having to accumulate possessions, the intermediate suffering of having to guard and keep up possessions, nor the final suffering of losing the possessions.

A Satguru, a Sage, a Jnani comes to upset your life. To pull you out of your samskaras. To resolve your karma, to make you free. But in order to do that, he does not add on.
•~•~•

Anyway. A Spiritual Master does not come to please you. A true spiritual Master is not lovey-dovey and brings you kindness and good cheer. If a spiritual Master does this he or she is not a true spiritual Master. The truth is you are already filled with all kinds of nonsense, ideas, concepts, foolishness, stuff from previous lives, this has to be pulled out of you. So the Sage through certain methods, certain disciplines causes certain things to happen in your lives in order to become free.
•~•~•
This is the reason why only mature people really attract a true Sage.
If an immature person attracts a true Sage they will not be able to stand the fire.
It will be too hot.
For things will begin to burn up in their lives.
Which means in English, that things will appear to become progressively worse.
People come to a Sage for health problems and their health becomes increasingly worse.
As a matter of fact some people even die.
People come to a Sage to increase their financial bank account and they go bankrupt.
•~•~•
The whole idea is your approach to a Sage has to be unconditional. You cannot have preconceived ideas of what the outcome is going to be and what's going to happen to your life. Yet you may be assured of this, as time passes all your so called stuff will be burnt up and you will become free, if you can hold on. So the Sage does not come in peace. If you're looking for peace you came to the wrong place.

If I were enlightened and you listened to me because I was enlightened, then you’re in big trouble. Are you ready to be brainwashed by someone who’s enlightened? You can be brainwashed by anybody, you know. What does it matter whether someone’s enlightened or not? But see, we want to lean on someone, don’t we? We want to lean on anybody we think has arrived. We love to hear that people have arrived. It gives us hope, doesn’t it? What do you want to hope for? Isn’t that another form of desire?

I was a learned fool. My flawed mind knew nothing till I came to dwell with Him whose Glance filled my heart with the Light of Awareness. Dwelling in that gracious state of Peace, whose nature is Holy Silence, so hard to gain and know, I entered into union with the deathless state of the Knowledge of Reality.

Listen, O drop, give yourself up without regret,
and in exchange gain the Ocean.
Listen, O drop, bestow upon yourself this honour,
and in the arms of the Sea be secure.
Who indeed should be so fortunate?
An ocean wooing a drop!
In God's name, in God's name, sell and buy at once!
Give a drop, and take this Sea full of pearls!

For a moment don't combine yourself with any idea.
Remain empty and allow the natural seeking to discover and reveal the place where searching is no more.

Love hinders death. Love is life. All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love. Everything is, everything exists, only because I love. Everything is united by it alone. Love is God, and to die means that I, a particle of love, shall return to the general and eternal source.

Simply see that you are at the center of the universe, and accept all things and beings as parts of your infinite body. When you perceive that an act done to another is done to yourself, you have understood the great truth.

How long must one perform sandhya and other rituals? As long as the hair on the body does not stand on end and the eyes do not fill with tears while repeating the name of God. Both these states are the signs of God realization; they indicate pure love and devotion. Having realized God, one goes beyond virtue and vice. The nearer you approach God, the more He lessens your work.

You think of yourself
as a citizen of the universe.
You think you belong
to this world of dust and matter.
Out of this dust
you have created a personal image,
and have forgotten
about the essence of your true origin.

Let all our passions and emotions go up unto Him. They are meant for Him, for if they miss their mark and go lower, they become vile; and when they go straight to the mark, to the Lord, even the lowest of them becomes transfigured. All the energies of the human body and mind, howsoever they may express themselves, have the Lord as their one goal, as their Ekâyana.
