Every situation is a challenge which demands the right response. When the response is right, the challenge is met and the problem ceases. If the response is wrong, the challenge is not met and the problem remains unsolved. Your unsolved problems -- that is what constitutes your karma. Solve them rightly and be free.

The very idea 'I am self-realised' is a mistake. There is no 'I am this'. 'I am that' in the Natural State.

Q: At the back of my mind there is a hum going on all the time. Numerous weak thoughts swarm and buzz and this shapeless cloud is always with me. Is it the same with you? What is at the back of your mind?

M: Where there is no mind, there is no back to it. I am all front, no back! The void speaks, the void remains. No memory of past pleasure or pain is left. Each moment is newly born.

Q: When I return home I find myself forgetting all l have learnt here, worrying and fretting, unable to remember my real nature even for a moment. What may be the cause?

M: It is your childishness you are returning to. You are not fully grown up; there are levels left undeveloped because unattended. Just give full attention to what in you is crude and primitive, unreasonable and unkind, altogether childish, and you will ripen. It is the maturity of heart and mind that is essential. It comes effortlessly when the main obstacle is removed -- inattention, unawareness. In awareness you grow.

Q: People come to you very often with their worldly troubles and ask for help. How do you know what to tell them?

M: I just tell them what comes to my mind at the moment. I have no standardised procedure in dealing with people. Q: You are sure of yourself. But when people come to me for advice, how am I to be sure that my advice is right?

M: Watch in what state you are, from what level you talk. If you talk from the mind, you may be wrong. If you talk from full insight into the situation, with your own mental habits in abeyance your advice may be a true response. The main point is to be fully aware that neither you nor the man in front of you are mere bodies; If your awareness is clear and full. a mistake is less probable.

One's happiness is within; the love is of the Self only. It is only within; do not think it to be without: then differentiation ceases to operate

Once you realize the body depends on the mind, the mind on consciousness, and consciousness on awareness and not the other way round, your question about waiting for self-realization till you die is answered

Who was born first, you or the world? As long as you give first place to the world, you are bound by it; once you realise, beyond all trace of doubt that the world is in you and not you in the world, you are out of it. Of course your body remains in the world and of the world, but you are not deluded by it. All scriptures say that before the world was, the Creator was. Who knows the Creator? He alone who was before the Creator, your own real being, the source of all the worlds with their creators

There is only impersonal consciousness.In this realm of consciousness all that is going on is dynamic playfulness, a process of functioning.There is no differentiation in this process as to a person, an entity, a community, a creed a religion.This play is going on..but will come to an end

You talk about helping others. Have you ever helped, really helped, a single man? Have you ever put one soul beyond the need of further help? Can you give a man character, based on full realization of his duties and opportunities at least, if not on the insight into his true being? When you do not know what is good for yourself, how can you know what is good for others? To help others, one must be beyond the need of help

Believe me, there is no goal, nor a way to reach it. You are the way and the goal, there is nothing else to reach except yourself. All you need is to understand, and understanding is the flowering of the mind. The tree is perennial, but the flowering and the fruit-bearing come in season. The seasons change, but not the tree. You are t...he tree. You have grown numberless branches and leaves in the past, and you may grow them also in the future - yet you remain. Not what was, or shall be, must you know, but what is. Yours is the desire that creates the universe. Know the world as your own creation and be free

All experience is illusory, limited and temporal. Expect nothing from experience. Realization by itself is not an experience, though it may lead to a new dimension of experiences. Yet the new experiences, however interesting, are not more real than the old. Definitely realization is not a new experience. It is the discovery of the tim...eless factor in every experience. It is awareness, which makes experience possible. Just like in all the colours light is the colourless factor, so in every experience awareness is present, yet it is not an experience

It is not this, it is not this: because this is built up, it is not the real - like the serpent seen in the rope, or like a dream; thus putting away every visible thing by wise meditation, the oneness of the two - Self and Eternal - is then to be known. ~ Crest Jewel of Wisdom

Dr. IIardi, associate professor of psychology at the University of Kansas, stated that he has encouraged depressed patients to remove refined sugar and refined foods from their diets. Patients who were willing to comply to these recommendations reported significant improvements in mental clarity, mood and energy. Research and patient experiences indicate that a diet high in whole grains and low in refined foods and sugar can provide significant improvement in mental health, clarity and reduced risk of mental illness

Our real nature is Liberation, but we imagine that we are bound. We make strenuous efforts to become free, although all the while we are free

Don't reach for bliss or speak of realization too quickly.

It is amazing how beautiful the the foreplay can be,

but it is all still in relation to a body.

It is the darkness that we must enter~

if we are to Awaken completely from this dream.

Death is the doorway.

Everything prior however subtly, is still about "me".

This teaching is for those who are really burning for Freedom.

While living, we must enter death itself.

The moth must kiss the Flame!

Death is the doorway.
