Ribhu Gita

See More
There is no such thing as the troublesome mind, no world of names and forms, not the least bit of ego. All these are nothing but the perfect Brahman-Self, which I am. In this conviction one should abide firmly, until one achieves the state of sleepless sleep which is alert-peace-eternal. (Ribhu Gita - Ch.16, v.7)

"All experience is illusory, limited and temporal. Expect nothing from experience. Realisation by itself is not an experience, though it may lead to a new dimension of experiences

My ideal indeed can be put into a few words and that is: to preach unto mankind their divinity, and how to make it manifest in every movement of life. God is in every man, whether man knows it or not; your loving devotion is bound to call up the divinity in him.

Consciousness and unconsciousness, while in the body depend on the condition of the brain. But the self is beyond both, beyond the brain, beyond the mind. The fault of the instrument is no reflection on its user.“


Rumi, 13th century Sufi poet and Mystic

Don't look for me in a human shape,
I am inside your looking.

Realise that the scenes that expand before you in the form of the world are just concepts of the mind. Otherwise, see the world as the form of God.

Those who ask 'where is God? He is not visible,' should enquire `Who am I? Where am I? and meet God there [ where the answer is found ]

To see him is to be consumed by him. Without turning inwards and merging in the lord, His light that shines within the mind and lends it all the light, how can we know the Light of Lights with the borrowed light of the mind?

The Sutra of Hui Neng

Two monks were arguing about a flag, and the Sixth Chan Patriarch [Hui Neng] overheard them.

First monk: “The flag is moving.”

Second monk: “The wind is moving.”

The Sixth Patriarch: “Not the wind, not the flag. Mind is moving.”

Lao Tzu

See More
Nothing in the world
is as soft and yielding as water.
Yet for dissolving the hard and inflexible,
nothing can surpass it.
The soft overcomes the hard;
the gentle overcomes the rigid.
Everyone knows this is true,
but few can put it into practice.
Therefore the Master remains
serene in the midst of sorrow.
Evil cannot enter her heart.
Because she has given up helping,
she is people’s greatest help.
True words seem paradoxical.

Avadhuta Gita of Dattatreya

It's beyond the duality of desire and desirelessness;
It's beyond the duality of action and non-action.
If there's only the limitless One, all is Shiva;
What, then, may be considered "without" or "within"?

The Lord of the universe bears the whole burden. You only imagine that you do. You can hand over all your burdens to Him. Whatever you have to do, you will be made an instrument for doing it at the right time. Do not imagine that you cannot do it unless you have the desire to. It is not desire that gives you the necessary strength. The strength is the Lord’s.

Happy Ram Navami

Ram-Nam burns ignorance , passion and sin. With or without knowledge, correctly or incorrectly , when the word " Rama" is pronounced it showers a rain of good upon the devotee. Sri Rama is Brahman who takes one across the ocean o worldly existence. Rama is one in across whom the Yogis sport, that is , the Self within.

Boredom, anger, sadness, or fear are not “yours,” not personal. They are conditions of the human mind. They come and go. Nothing that comes and goes is you.

If you want to go all the way, throw all away.
And right there, there is a joy, a freedom and lightness.
Strip everything back to nothing.
Throw your attachments, your desires, your needs and immediately you are in a state of total freshness. Total wholeness.
Every human being should do this once in a while.
The serious seeker develops this unsparing attitude to free their minds from the cholesterol of egoic identity.
Be in that emptiness and you see that emptiness is completeness.
And the more you do it, the more you enjoy the effortlessness of it all.
Now, you ignore the voice of the interpreter, the journalist, the accountant or the mathematician and in a short while, you won’t want him back.
If you want to go all the way,
throw all away.

You see many stars at night in the sky but find them not when the sun rises; can you say that there are no stars in the heaven of day? So, O man, because you behold not God in the days of your ignorance, say not that there is no God.

Abide as That in which there are no Holy Scriptures or sacred books, no one who thinks, no objection or answer to it, no theory to be established, no theory to be rejected, nothing other than one Self - and be always happy, free from the least trace of thought.

Don't worry about the ego. Just know, you are not the ego. The most important thing is to discover that it is watched, which means: You cannot be it.
Therefore, don't identify with it. Then it starves from lack of attention and soon falls away.
Your victory is in recognizing that you are only the sense of presence, which announces itself through the feeling: I am. Let the 'I Am' - presence stay by itself consciously until it becomes effortless. That is when you feel or say 'I', it automatically means the presence or Being.

You say: “He lost his life” or “my life,” as if life were something that you can possess or lose. The truth is: you don’t have a life, You Are Life. The One Life, the one consciousness that pervades the entire universe and takes temporary form to experience itself as a stone or blade of grass, as an animal, a person, a star or a galaxy.

The Self is not an event. It is eternally unchanging.
However, hold in your heart the possibility that the recognition of it can happen, inside the heart at any moment. I say this so that your mind does not cheat you again by postponing your chance. Your coming and being here is your heart's response and resolve to dive within and secure the victory.
Go all the way through.
It's not somewhere else.
It's right here.
It is you.

When I say leave everything alone, leave the world alone, leave people alone, I'm speaking of mentally.
Do not sit at home or sit at the office and think about all the people who have hurt you, of all the things that are wrong someplace, drop it.
Keep the mind quiet.
When the mind starts to fight you.
When the mind starts to think about other things, you can say,
""All is Well"."
This will remind the mind that everything is okay just the way it is.
(silence)

Just make the statement "drop it!"
and forget about everything.
Do not think what you are thinking.
Do not allow yourself to have those thoughts.
When the thoughts come, when you feel futile say,
"Drop it!"
If you make the statement as an exclamation, just say,
"Drop it!"
Something will happen to you, you will feel a peace, you will feel radiance.
You will feel free.
•~•~•
But don't do like a mimsy-wimsy and say,
"Drop it".
(laughter) Say,
"Drop It!"
That means everything can go to hell.
The whole world, the whole universe, everything.
All my problems.
All my fears.
You have dropped it, it's finished, it's gone.
It's like what I did one Thursday night I said,
"Wake up!"
Same thing.
You are dropping all your theories, all of your knowledge, everything.
You drop it and let it go.
But do not analyze it.
Do not think about it.
Do not put it in certain category.

The Ego Keeps You in Bondage

Devotion is love overflowing. Even when there is nobody, it is overflowing — to things, to tables, to chairs, to walls. It is just overflowing, it is not a question of to whom.

The little space within the heart is as great as the vast universe.
The heavens and the earth are there, and the sun and the moon and the stars.
Fire and lightning and winds are there, and all that now is and all that is not.

You can’t think about presence, and the mind can’t understand it. Understanding presence is being present.
