Brahmajna Ma

When will man get peace and contentment?
Tell me what is the good of such a petty, narrow life?
Which never leaves room for feeling for the Universe?
The mind that feels for a small circle (i.e. relations) why does it not feel for the world at large? The mind, which takes a small circle as its own, why does it not consider the world as its own? The affection which is confined to a small circle, why does it not spread all over creation?
The sense of difference is the cause of all sorrows.

Self-knowledge will not down by mere study of books on religious science if one still remains in the darkness of
ignorance. Without Self-realization no one can ever be content. Self-realization is the only peace and contentment. Just think over and ascertain whether there is peace
and contentment in the state in which you now are or in what you are now doing.

You are a physician (the recipient of the letter), you treat others in their illness but have you treated yourself in your disease of birth and death? Engaged in the attempt of removing the insatiable desires of this small circle, what else are you doing? You are also gradually entering the jaws of death. There is no certainty when death will devour you. Even at this moment it may swallow you up.
I am surprised that you should be quite indifferent to this.

Think for once of the great illusion you are in. Instead of advancing sophistical arguments, argue with yourself and come to the right conclusion. By arguing with others no one can realize his own true nature, which is the Infinite.
Onlv after a fight with his desire for enjoyment and defeating it can a man realize his Self and shine as the Infinite.
You are living in a great illusion. Try to save yourself from the grip of the enchantress Expectation.

When we understand that what we deeply long for can never be found in an object...substance...activity...relationship or state...our longing naturally and effortlessly loses its direction and dynamism and flows back to its source, and is revealed as the happiness for which we were in search...

Meditation will help you to find your bonds, loosen them, untie them and cast your moorings. When you are no longer attached to anything, you have done your share. The rest will be done for you.

To stand alone in true solitude is to stand in the recognition of the absolute completeness and unity of all manner of existence. And from that common ground, where nothing and no one is foreign to you, your love extends across the magnitude of time and embraces the greatest and smallest of things.

Watch the 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 will discover that this thing called mind only exists when thoughts are allowed to run free.

Enlightenment is not about words and thoughts and concepts which can be doubted. Enlightenment is always here. By 'here' I don't mean this present space. Here is somewhere within where mind cannot reach. Presence is always here and you are always That. This here is not the opposite of 'there'. This here is nowhere, it is your Heart. When mind is still all comes back to the Heart. All the cosmos is but a speck in your Heart. Turn mind over into this 'here' and it is lost. Then only light, wisdom and love remain and This you are not different or apart from.

There are so many concepts.
There are so many teachings.
You will become a very intelligent idiot.

Tao Te Ching

Each separate being in the universe
returns to the common source.
Returning to the source is serenity.

If you don't realize the source,
you stumble in confusion and sorrow.
When you realize where you come from,
you naturally become tolerant,
disinterested, amused,
kindhearted as a grandmother,
dignified as a king.
Immersed in the wonder of the Tao,
you can deal with whatever life brings you,
and when death comes, you are ready.

Silence is the most potent form of work.

The guru is quiet and peace prevails in all. His silence is more vast and more emphatic than the scriptures put together. In fact the guru is always within you.
The guru's silence is the loudest teaching.
It is also grace in its highest form.

Silence is the true teaching.
It is the perfect teaching.

It is suited only for the most advanced seeker.

The others are unable to draw full inspiration from it. Therefore they require words to explain the truth. But truth is beyond words. It does not admit of explanations. All that is possible to do is to indicate it.

SILENCE


'In the ecstasy of devotion one may sing and one may dance, but it is mouna (silence) that bestows liberation.'

'Open your eyes! Know the light that shines through your eyes; shine in the Heart as the greatest of all lights, which transcends all thought.'

-Padamalai, pp. 195; 63

Even to say ‘ I must trust existence’ is mind.
The ‘I’ who must trust , must itself, be mistrusted.
It is a riddle.

Right here and now, you are in the realized state. But you try to judge it through desires and mind concepts, hence your inability to apperceive it and abide in it.

An uncomfortable feeling is like a compassionate alarm clock that says, "You're in the dream."
It's time to investigate, that's all. But if we don't honor the alarm clock, then we try to alter and manipulate the feeling by reaching into an apparent external world.

You are Self here and now.

Leave the mind alone, stand aware and unconcerned and you will realize that to stand alert but detached, watching events come and go, is an aspect of your real nature.

Darkness is slowly enveloping the world. It is a pitiful scene we see all around. Having dissipated all their energy and vitality by running after objects of pleasure, people are collapsing. Man has
gone beyond the reasonable limits set by nature. This does not mean that one should not enjoy the pleasures of the world. That is all right. But understand this great truth, that the enjoyment and happiness you get from sensual pleasures and worldly objects are only a minute reflection of the infinite bliss which comes from within your own Self. Know that your true nature is bliss. Just as today’s newspaper will become tomorrow’s waste paper, that
which gives happiness today can easily become the source of tomorrow’s despair. To understand this truth while living in the world is what religion teaches us.

14 The Fool

By nature my mind is empty.
Even in sleep, I am awake.
I think of things without thinking.

All my impressions of the world
Have dissolved.

My desires have melted away.
So what do I care for money
Or the thieving senses,
For friends or knowledge or holy books?

Liberation,
Bondage,
What are they to me?

What do I care for freedom?

For I have known God,
The infinite Self,
The witness of all things.

Without, a fool.
Within, free of thought.

I do as I please,
And only those like me
Understand my ways.

The purpose of life is to be at Peace,
To love all Beings, and know who you are.
Know your Self and you know everything.
This immaculate knowledge alone is, Emptiness alone is.
How can you come out of emptiness
if there are no limits to it?
The appearance of a manifestation
is but lila of this Emptiness.
Know who you are, Here and Now,
by simply Being Quiet.

You are this moment, introduce yourself to This,
do not attach your mind to any direction.
No sadhana, no past, no future,
not even emptiness of your heart, not even space.
To be free forever introduce yourself to this Moment.
This Moment is always this Moment, It will not change.
It is Freedom, free from mind and concepts,
and is your fundamental birthright.
The best use of this Moment is to drown in It.
Keep Quiet, you are inside of the inside,
do not dwell anywhere and make no effort.
The concept of effort and practice is bondage.
Just keep Quiet, Wherever you are, Just keep Quiet.

The Ego, however, is not who you really are. The ego is your self-image; it is your social mask; it is the role you are playing. Your social mask thrives on approval. It wants control, and it is sustained by power, because it lives in fear.

Every time negative energy is embraced by the energy of mindfulness, it will lose a little of its strength. The same is true for other mental formations: fear, anguish, anxiety, and despair. They exist in us in the form of seeds, and every time a seed is watered, it becomes a zone of energy on the upper level of our consciousness. If we don't know how to take care of it, it will push us to do or say things that will damage us and the people we love. Therefore, generating the energy of mindfulness, to recognize it, to embrace it, is the practice. And the practice should be done in a tender, nonviolent way.

When a stage is reached that one feels deeply that whatever is being done is happening and one has not got anything to do with it, then it becomes such a deep conviction that whatever is happening is not happening really. And that whatever seems to be happening is also an illusion. That may be final. In other words, totally apart from whatever seems to be happening, when one stops thinking that one is living, and gets the feeling that one is being lived, that whatever one is doing, one is not doing, but one is made to do, then that is a sort of criterion.

The only thing that is holding you back are your thoughts.
Get rid of your thoughts and you'll be home free.
Quiet your mind.
Keep yourself still and leave the world alone.
When I say leave the world alone it becomes confusing somewhat.
I mean mentally.

I discovered that it is necessary, absolutely necessary, to believe in nothing. That is, we have to believe in something which has no form and no color--something which exists before all forms and colors appear... No matter what god or doctrine you believe in, if you become attached to it, your belief will be based more or less on a self-centered idea.
