The time will come when mankind will begin to get away from the conscious- ness of needing so many material things. More security and peace will be found in the simple life.

A Simpler Life Is a Happier Life

Happiness is not dependent on external circumstances; rather, it is to be found in the simpler joys of life, and most of all in the ever new bliss of deep meditation....

Be happy by clinging to the simple, true, and lasting soul-joys. They come by deep thinking, introspection, spiritual inspiration, and meditation.

Modern life is becoming very unsatisfactory. It does not give you happiness. There are too many things, too many desires. More nice cars and dresses and entertainments − and more worries! Free yourself from these so-called "necessities" and spend more time with God. Make your life simple. Be happy in and by your Self

Mercedes De Acosta was asking Bhagavan about whether she should follow religion, teacher, or guru (and which one would be the most helpful to her).

Bhagavan replied, "If they can help in the quest of the Self. But can they help? Can religion, which teaches you to look outside yourself, which promises a heaven and a reward outside yourself, can this help you? It is only by diving deep into the spiritual Heart that one can find the Self."

You think that you are the body or that you are the mind. But there are occasions when you are free from both. For example in deep slumber, you create a body and a world in your dream. That represents your mental activities. In your waking state you think that you are the body and then the idea of forest and the rest arise.

Now, consider the situation. You are an unchanging and continuous being w
ho remains in all these states which are constantly changing and therefore transient. But you are always there. It follows that these fleeting objects are mere phenomena which appear on your being like pictures which move across a screen. The screen does not move when the picture moves. Similarly, you do not move from where you are even when the body leaves the home and mixes in society. Your body, the society, the forest and the ways are all in you; you are not in them. You are the body also but not this body only. If you remain as your pure Self, the body and its movements need not affect you.

The question, 'Who am I?'
is the most compelling,
most potent at dispelling
the hypnosis of the mind.
It is the smelling salts put under
the nose of the Beingness
which has forgotten its true nature.
It reawakens the Self to Itself.

Develop the habit of thinking of yourself as consciousness, not as the body or a person. Do not associate yourself with any object or concept, however appealing, and the personal, the cause of all miseries will dissolve. Remain in the state
of space-like awareness, free from all notions. This is the pathless path to timeless Awareness.

The nearer you approach to God, the less you reason and argue. When you attain Him, then all sounds -- all reasoning and disputing -- come to an end. Then you go into samadhi -- into communion with God in silence

Misery is nothing but an illusion caused by the unreal sense of individuality. In truth no one has ever experienced any such thing other than that unreal illusion. If one scrutinises one's own Self, which is bliss, there will be no misery at all in one's life. One suffers because of the idea that the body, which is never oneself, is `I'; suffering is all due to this delusion.

All the scriptures are meant only to make a man retrace his steps to his original source. He need not acquire anything new. He only has to give up false ideas and useless accretions. Instead of doing this, however, he tries to grasp something strange and mysterious because he believes his happiness lies elsewhere. That is the mistake.
All scriptures without exception proclaim that for attaining sa
lvation, the mind should be subdued. And once one knows that control of the mind is their final aim, it is futile to make an interminable study of them. What is required for such control is actual enquiry into oneself by self-interrogation – ‘Who am I?’ How can this enquiry in quest of the Self be made by means of a studying of the scriptures?

Knowing the Self is being the Self, and being means existence, one's own existence. No one denies one's existence any more than one denies one's eyes, although one cannot see them. The trouble lies with your desire to objectify the Self, in the same way as you objectify your eyes when you place a mirror before them. You have been so accustomed to objectivity that you have lost the knowledge of yourself, simply because the Self cannot be objectified.

Owing to ignorance you have mistaken the physical body for the Self and this is all the mistake you have committed. But it is a serious mistake indeed. By changing your mental outlook, by purifying your heart and intellect , you can attain Knowledge of Self.

The objects seen in the waking state are as real as the objects seen in the dreaming state. All objects are unreal. The witnessing subject only is real and eternal. Life is a waking dream. How can a thing which changes be eternal and real ?
