O how wonderful!
I am awareness itself,
No less.

The world is a magic show!

But in me
There is nothing to embrace,
And nothing to turn away.

Not till your thoughts cease all
their branching here and there,
Not till you abandon all thoughts
of seeking for something,
Not till your mind is motionless
as wood or stone, will you be
on the right road to the Gate.

The sun is always there, there is no night to it; the mind blinded by the ‘I-am-the-body’ idea spins out endlessly its thread of illusion.

Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi

The Self does not come from anywhere nor does it enter the
body through the crown of the head. It is as it is, ever shining, ever steady, unmoving and unchanging. The changes which are noticed are not inherent in the Self, for the Self abides in the heart and is self-luminous like the sun. The changes are seen in Its light. The relationship between the Self and the body or the mind may be compared to that of a clear crystal and its background. If the crystal is placed against a red flower it shines red, if against green it shines green, and so on. The individual confines himself to the limits of the changeable body or of the mind which derives its existence from the unchanging Self. All that is necessary is to give up this mistaken identity and, that done, the ever shining Self will be seen to be the single, non-dual Reality.

God has put inside you the urge to go all the way.
The ‘all the way’ that has no distance.
It's a journey of subtlety, not of miles or kilometers.
The power is here inside you,
but if you keep relying your head, you miss it.
Your mind wants to understand this, but it cannot understand this. It can only fall in love with it.
There is something here that is not ‘next’.
And it will never be next.
Next will surely pass.
Find that thing that doesn't pass.
It is here inside the room of your own heart.
Be there.
That's all.

Ripeness is an idea. If you cling to it as an idea it will choke you. It will keep you seeking for more ripeness. You are beyond ripe and beyond ready. What I am really pointing to is what you already are, not what you should become.

Actually, being what you are is the simplest. What is difficult is to stop being what you are not. Because we wish to keep hold of our attachments. Freedom is to be free of attachments and the main attachment is to the `I’-self.

Everything that you can ever imagine,
that you want to be,
you already are.

You are the Imperishable Self
that has always been,
that you will always be.
Beyond birth, beyond death, beyond experiences,
beyond doubt, beyond opinions.
Beyond whatever it is your body is going through,
whatever thoughts your mind thinks.

You are beyond that.
You are the Silence.
The Silence of the Heart.

Whenever some conditions arises, catch yourself, by asking yourself,
"To whom does it come?"
Even if you have to do this a thousand times a day.

Why raise questions of what happens after death? Why ask whether you were born, whether you are reaping the fruits of your past karma, and so on? You will not raise such questions in a little while when you fall asleep. Why? Are you a different person now from the one you are when asleep? No, you are not. Find out why such questions do not occur to you when you are asleep.

Nothing in the world can bother you as much as your own mind, I tell you. In fact, others seem to be bothering you, but it is not others, it is your own mind.

Brahman or the Self, is like a cinema screen and the world like
the pictures on it. You can see the picture only so long as there
is a screen. But when the observer himself becomes the screen
only the Self remains.

Love of the body is nothing more than love of jail. Long accustomed to living in the body, we have forgotten what real freedom means.

When you come out of prison you will see your mind is there intact. All your knowledge is intact, but you're out of it. It'll be working automatically and it will beautifully run your life. The problem is when you get involved. When you merely become a witness consciousness the mind is automatically functioning.

You are spirit in truth. However that spirit is wrongly identifying itself with the gross body. The body has been projected by the mind; the mind itself has originated from the spirit. If the wrong identification ceases, there will be peace and permanent untellable bliss.

Your search to attain me is like searching all over the world, ceaselessly straining to find the necklace around your own neck.

If I've never been bound,
I can never be liberated.
How could you think that the Self is restricted to formlessness or imprisoned by form.

Recognize the natural silence of your own Self.
Silence is not a behavior.
Silence is not a practice.
It is the natural perfume of being.
Trying to be still is not stillness.
Find that stillness inside, which simply Is.
There is no one to practice it.
It can only be recognized.
It is here.
It is not hiding.
It is not hurried.
Simply stop identifying with the past, future, present or with any self image.
Be open to being nothing.
No thing. So that internally you are simply like a space.
But this is not an inert space, but a space full of aliveness.
Still don't define yourself as aliveness.
Don't define yourself at all.
Simply remain in natural self - attention.

Prior to taking this form, you were formless; spontaneously the form came, and when the form came there was a natural longing to return to the formless state. When you want to return to the formless, desireless state, then only you come here, to seek what you are. The consciousness has to know the consciousness. When it realizes itself, then only do you return to normal.

Whatever spiritual things you aspire to know are all happening in this objective world, in the illusion. All this is happening in the objective world. All is dishonesty. There is no truth in this fraud.

You are asking, "Who am I?" and you are not going to get an answer, because the one who will get the answer is false. You may have an idea, a concept, and you will think you have found yourself, but it is only a concept; you can never see your Self.

Just as a man would dive in order to get something that had fallen into the water, so one should dive into oneself with a keen, one-pointed mind, controlling speech and breath, and find the place whence the 'I' originates.
The only enquiry leading to Self-realization is seeking the source of the word 'I'.
