If you could get rid of yourself just once, the secret of secrets would open to you. The face of the unknown, hidden beyond the universe would appear on the mirror of your perception.

Death is beautiful. It’s what we believe into death that frightens us.

Remember, one who enjoys more is bound to suffer more because he becomes very sensitive. But suffering is not bad. If you understand it rightly, suffering is a cleansing. If you understand it rightly, sadness has a depth to it which no happiness can ever have. A person who is simply happy is always superficial. A person who has not known sorrow and has not known sadness, has not known the depths. He has not touched the bottom of his being; he has remained just on the periphery. One has to move within these two banks. Within these two banks flows the river.

To be identified with your mind is to be trapped in time: the compulsion to live almost exclusively through memory and anticipation. This creates an endless preoccupation with past and future and an unwillingness to honor and acknowledge the present moment and allow it to be. The compulsion arises because the past gives you an identity and the future holds the promise of salvation, of fulfillment in whatever form. Both are illusions.

Use your heart not your head! Put your Heart in front of me when you ask a question! We don't want to see your face not your hands nor your head. Yes not even your head i want. Speak and act from that Heart place! Come in front of me and show me your heart!

Attracted and repulsed with feelings, perceiving is always bewildered...
Perceived feelings are of the perceiver of feelings, but THAT abiding in itself is without any perceptibility (perceivable form).

Whatever it is that is still commenting about things, forget that. Become completely empty and silent and remain as silent emptiness itself.

As water remains water regardless of the vessels, as light remains itself regardless of the colours it brings out, so does the real remain real regardless of conditions in which it is reflected.

When you do not stir any thought from the mind ground, without moving, without moving the mind, without starting a single thought - in an instant of time you are free.

I see the Lord in His universe, the Master said, Viewing a beautiful tree, my heart is moved and whispers: 'He is there!' I bow to adore Him. Doesn't He permeate every atom of the earth? Could our planet exist at all except by the cohesive power of God? When we see Him in all persons, in all things; each rock becomes an altar.

The difficulty in the spiritual path is always what comes from oursleves. A person does not like to be a pupil, he likes to be a teacher. If one only knew that the greatness and perfection of the great ones who have come from time to time to this world was in their being pupils and not in teaching! The greater the teacher, the better pupil he was. He learned from everyone, the great and the lowly, the wise and the foolish, the old and the young. He learned from their lives, and studied human nature in all its aspects.

It is wise to drop the sense of responsibility and free-will by regarding ourselves as the ordained instruments of the All-wise and All-powerful, to do and suffer as He pleases. He carries all burdens and gives us peace.

When you begin to realize that your mind does not really exist, then the life you've been following becomes invalid.
It just dissipates, as if you awoke from a dream.

Jnana path has been recommended only for the top-level aspirants. In order for him not to lose his balance by that very qualification of topness, and for his SAdhanA not to be broken by the weight of such extraneous thoughts, the submissive attitude of bhakti becomes necessary. However much we may woo Brahman with love, unless brahman itself does the ‘revealing’ (known as ‘vivaraNaM’), there is no scope for salvation. It is with this thought that one has to submit humbly before the ideal goal. To obtain this submissive attitude it is only Bhakti that helps.

Each wave in the brain that says "I" and "mine" immediately puts a chain around us and makes us slaves, and the more we say "I" and "mine" more our slavery, the greater our misery. Therefore, the Karma-yoga advises us to enjoy the beauty of all things in the world, but not to identify with any of them.

Do not believe that if you're watching TV or watching a movie you cannot meditate or practice Self-Inquiry.
You will be amazed that as you're watching the movie you can keep inquiring,
"To whom does this come?
Who am I?"
Or you can become aware that you are like the screen in the movie.
You cannot see the screen, you see the images on the screen.
Yet the images are not real.
If you try to grab them, you grab the screen.
Just contemplating this helps.
And then you realize that you are like the screen, that is your real nature, and all the images in the universe are superimposed upon you, just as the images of the movie are superimposed on the screen.

When you recognize that there is a voice in your head that pretends to be you and never stops speaking, you are awakening out of your unconscious identification with the stream of thinking.

Just observe the tremendous potential of the ‘I am’
it has kept the whole world running, the entire
manifestation has come from it, its perpetual
stubbornness is astonishing. To be free from it you
have to understand it in its utmost purity and then
meditate on it for a reasonable amount of time. The
intensity of your meditation should be such that
you become totally one with the ‘I am’. Then a
moment will come when it merges into itself and
you go beyond to your true being, which is the
Absolute or the ‘Parabrahman’.

Nature loves courage. You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. This is the trick. This is what all these teachers and philosophers who really counted, who really touched the alchemical gold, this is what they understood. This is the shamanic dance in the waterfall. This is how magic is done. By hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering it’s a feather bed.
