The body itself is a thought.
Be as you really are.

I am the awareness. Everything else is a tourist. Every thought, every emotion, is only a tourist. I am not a hotel for these thoughts. Let them come and go.

The tragedy of an attachment is that if its object is not attained it causes unhappiness. But if it is attained, it does not cause happiness – it merely causes a flash of pleasure followed by weariness, and it is always accompanied, of course, by the anxiety that you may lose the object of your attachment.

Every sensation shares the same characteristic: it arises and passes away, arises and passes away. It is this arising and passing that we have to experience through practice, not just accept as truth because Buddha said so, not just accept because intellectually it seems logical enough to us. We must experience sensation’s nature, understand its flux, and learn not to react to it.

Although I am a typical loner in my daily life, my awareness of belonging to the invisible community of those who strive for truth, beauty, and justice has prevented me from feelings of isolation.

Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything—anger, anxiety, or possessions—we cannot be free.

The Pueblo Indians told me that all Americans are crazy, and of course I was somewhat astonished and asked them why. They said - Well, they say they think in their heads. No sound man thinks in his head. We think in the heart.

INQUIRER: The hunger of the senses can never be appeased; the more one gets, the more one wants.
The fulfilment of worldly desire only begets greater longing.

SRI MA: This world is itself but an embodiment of want, and hence the heartache due to the absence of fulfilment must needs endure. This is why it is said that there are two kinds of currents in human life : the one pertaining to the world, in which want follows upon want; the other of one’s true Being. It is characteristic of the former that it can never end in fulfilment - on the contrary, the sense of want is perpetually stimulated anew. Whereas by entering the latter man will become established in his true nature and bring to completion the striving which is its expression. Thus, if he endeavours to fulfil himself by entering this current, it will eventually bring him to the perfect poise of his own true Being

There is no need of a way out [of the dream]! Don't you see that a way out is also a part of the dream? All you have to do is see the dream as dream. The very idea of going beyond the dream is illusory. Why go anywhere? Just realize that you are dreaming a dream you call the world, and stop looking for ways out. The problem is not the dream. Your problem is that you like one part of your dream and not another. Love all, or none of it, and stop complaining. When you have seen the dream as a dream, you have done all that needs be done.

My greatest spiritual guru has always been discomfort. Just sitting with pain or discomfort, without trying to escape in any way, without expectation, without a goal in mind, without seeking anything - that's the juicy place, the place of creative transformation, the place where mud turns to gold. For many years, I would just sit with grief, frustration, anger, fear, pain, just resting in that bubbling, burning mess for hours and hours, without trying to escape or fix my experience, without hope, without a dream... until peace was discovered even in the midst of that storm, the unshakeable, non-conceptual, ever-present peace that I am, and have always been. Instead of trying to escape discomfort, we let discomfort reveal its deeper secrets.

We sit with discomfort and watch all boundaries between 'me' and 'discomfort' melt away, until it is no longer 'me sitting with my discomfort' at all, and never was. We sit with frustration in the place where it has not yet coagulated into 'I am frustrated'. We sit with fear prior to the resurrection of the image 'I am the one who is afraid'. We sit with anger before the birth of our identity as 'the angry one'. We know ourselves as the vast open space, the boundless and identity-less ocean that welcomes all of these waves as its beloved children, returned home at last, home at last.

There is a very strange thing that can occur at exactly the point where you realize that there is no escaping the imaginary world of your illusions. You bare your heart open to illusion, surrender your eternal struggle against it, and admit to being bound by its cunning imagination. I don't mean that you become despondent or resigned to your fate. I mean that you truly let go in the face of your utter defeat and stop struggling. And when all the struggle ceases, we realize that the prison of our mind cannot hold us in anymore, because the prison was all along something we imagined into existence. And imagined things aren't real, they don't exist. But we could never really see this as long as we were fighting the phantoms of our minds. We needed the one thing that our imaginary minds could not bring about, could not fake or create: the genuine surrender of all struggle. In the blink of an eye, we are no longer confined within illusion nor our attempt to avoid illusion. When all struggle ceases, there is nothing to bind us to a distorted perception of existence and we can finally see. What we see is that we do not simply exist within existence, but all of existence exists within us as well. And although everywhere we look we see the endless diversity of life, we also now see our own true face in everything under the sun.

As all waves are in the ocean, so are all things physical and mental in awareness. Hence awareness itself is all-important, not the content of it.

The ordinary man is living a very abnormal life, because his values are upside down. Money is more important than meditation; logic is more important than love; mind is more important than heart; power over others is more important than power over one's own being. Mundane things are more important than finding some treasures which death cannot destroy.

Every person offers a little reflection of the Self, but the Sage is like a huge mirror in whose compassionate presence the dissharmonious is seen. Many avoid this mirroring, but those who continue to look, come to see the face of God.

I don't want to tell people to be happy. I just want to tell 'You are Love'. I don't want to say to celebrate life even. I'm just Here and it's enough. My 'here' is enough. I'm happy inside my heart.

Longing for a tiny grain of pleasure, people toil so
hard using the mind to plough the field of the five
senses, but they never wish for the flood of Bliss
which is the fruit that comes by ploughing the Heart,
the Source of the mind, with [simple] Self-attention.
Ah, what a wonder!

When one starts to go into the self deeper and deeper within and finally reaches an awakening, that one becomes the whole universe.
This is what awakening is.
Awakening is not selfish.
There are some people who believe you awaken to a greater and bigger personality.
Some people actually believe that you awaken to gigantic ego.
Where you're able to do all kinds of miracles and perform all kinds of feats.
Again let me remind you that there has to be someone left to do those things.
When you awaken, the personal self has been destroyed.
There is no-one to have siddhis, no-one to perform miracles, no-one to be clairvoyant, no-one to tell fortunes.
All that has been completely annihilated and only the substratum remains.

In other words when you come into a predicament in your life, before you get involved in it, say to yourself,
"Now what would God do in a case like this?"
And since God doesn't exist, there's nothing to do.
So why are we discussing the subject?
Because you want to hear me talk.

To find it you must dive deep down into silence, deeper and ever deeper until it is reached.
