His thought is quiet, quiet are his words and deed, when he has obtained freedom by true knowledge, when he has thus become a quiet man.

Enlightenment has nothing to do with states of consciousness. Whether you are in ego consciousness or unity consciousness is not really the point. I have met many people who have easy access to advanced states of consciousness. Though for some people this may come very easily, I also notice that many of these people are no freer than anyone else. If you don’t believe that the ego can exist in very advanced states of consciousness, think again. The point isn’t the state of consciousness, even very advanced ones, but an awake mystery that is the source of all states of consciousness. It is even the source of presence and beingness. It is beyond all perception and all experience. I call it ‘awakeness’. To find out that you are empty of emptiness is to die into an aware mystery, which is the source of all existence. It just so happens that that mystery is in love with all of its manifestation and non-manifestation. You find your Self by stepping back out of yourself.

Just as a mirror exists everywhere both within and apart from its reflected images, so the Supreme Lord exists everywhere within and apart from this body.

Just as one and the same all-pervading space exists within and without a jar, so the eternal, everlasting God exists in the totality of things.

Non duality is the axis of life. Even religion achieved completion when it touches non duality. One God theory is NOT non duality. Some of these STUPID secular intellectuals are constantly screaming that one God theory is non duality. One God theory is the metaphysical version of autocracy - the immature mind that cannot look beyond the political supremacy. The projection of the all powerful political head into the meta-physical zone is the one God theory. One God theory is NOT Advaita. In Advaita EVERYTHING is God. I even cannot say everything.. or even everybody. EVERY is God. Infinite Gods - each of them expressing infinite possibilities.

Non duality is a powerful strategy to face all the attacks put on you - social, economic, physical, through media - in every level. Non duality - Advaita - can be the best strategy, the best thinking structure - the best lifestyle. Advaita when and more it is shared, more and more alive it becomes. When more and more alive you make it in your life, you become more and more complete. Let Advaita be the source of your joy, the source of your pleasure, your life, your strategy even when you face death. Let non duality be you. And may you be that!

'There is One Moral, the love which springs forth from self-denial and blooms in deeds of beneficence.'

There are moral principles taught to mankind by various teachers, by many traditions, one differing from the other, which are like separate drops coming out of the fountain. But when we look at the stream, we find there is but one stream, although it turns into several drops on falling. There are many moral principles, just as many drops fall from one fountain; but there is one stream that is at the source of all, and that is love. It is love that gives birth to hope, patience, endurance, forgiveness, tolerance, and to all moral principles. All deeds of kindness and beneficence take root in the soil of the loving heart. Generosity, charity, adaptability, an accommodating nature, even renunciation, are the offspring of love alone. The great, rare and chosen beings, who for ages have been looked up to as ideal in the world, are the possessors of hearts kindled with love. All evil and sin come from the lack of love.

People call love blind, but love in reality is the light of the sight. The eye can only see the surface; love can see much deeper. All ignorance is the lack of love. As fire when not kindled gives only smoke, but when kindled, the illuminating flame springs forth, so it is with love. It is blind when undeveloped, but, when its fire is kindled, the flame that lights the path of the traveler from mortality to everlasting life springs forth. The secrets of earth and heaven are revealed to the possessor of the loving heart, the lover has gained mastery over himself and others, and he not only communes with God but also unites with Him.

'Hail to thee, then, O love, sweet madness! Thou who healest all our infirmities! Who art the physician of our pride and self-conceit! Who art our Plato and our Galen!' says Rumi.

FIRE
Fire, divine purifier, purify my heart.
Fire, O power of God, purify my mind from all evil.
Fire, in You, I see the Maker, Purifier, and Healer, God.
Let love's fire remain in my heart and all else be burnt.
Let me live in Your warmth;
raise me above the coldness of the earth.
Kindle, Lord, fire in my heart, that life may become clearer to me.
Let the tortures of life burn up all which keeps me from rising to Your spheres of freedom and peace.
Destroy, Lord, my infirmities by the fire of Your love.
Raise my soul up as the rising of the flame.
Let my false self be turned into ashes
that my true self be born as a phoenix.

Every day you should sit quietly and affirm, with deep conviction: "No birth, no death, no caste have I; father, mother, have I none. Blessed Spirit, I am He. I am the Infinite Happiness." If you again and again repeat these thoughts, day and night, you will eventually realize what you really are: an immortal soul.

The First Experiment Is Silence.

The first experiment with religion must begin with silence. Most people never take time to be silent or to sit quietly in meditation. Hours and hours I remain in inner silence. When I am with people, I enjoy them immensely; I am with them fully and wholeheartedly. But when I am away from people, I am entirely alone in that supreme joy of life—the bliss of God. No matter where I am, that joy of God is always with me. Why don't you experiment with silence, so that you can live in this same way? Most of you can't sit still for even ten minutes without your thoughts running away in all directions. You have not learned to be at peace in your home within, because you are always restlessly chasing about in your mind. My master, Sri Yukteswar, used to say: "Locking the door of the storehouse of happiness, man runs everywhere else, begging for that happiness. How foolish, when he has the whole store of joy lying within himself!" From my childhood I sought God, and communion with Him has given me happiness that no fulfilled material desires could ever give. You have nothing if you have not God. You have everything if you have God; for He is the Master of the universe.

'Understand so many times I have seen people again and again and again, if you feel you are powerless and you think you should be forgiven, life does not run by communism, god save yourself (himself?) from communism. That is why communists think there is no god. Maybe communists are right god by the western standards does not exist but Ishwara exists.. they are wrong when they say totally all gods do not exist. Then they have not tasted Sanatana Dharma... listen, completing, completing, all the incompletions, getting out of the victimhood is living advaita. Understand, advaitic activism means, again and again and again, bringing yourself to perpetual completion. Perpetual completion is life. Life runs by perpetual completion. Life runs by perpetual completion understand, perpetual completion is advaitic activism. Constantly complete complete complete yourself. Completion is nothing but the decision to drop your past incompletions and never let them to have influence of you again. Thats all. Never let them have influence over you again thats all. Understand, when you start doing perpetual completion, when the perpetual completion becomes your lifestyle in every step you know how to be active advaiticly, how to have the advaitic activism. Essence of todays satsang, bring the context to your thinking. The moment you bring the right context, you will become authentic integrated responsible and enriching, Advaitic activism will simply happen in you.

Bliss is a phenomenon that cannot be hidden. It is fire. It is flame. We cannot hide it. It is impossible to hide it.


Chapter 14, Message –348



Secret traditions advise people to ‘hide it’. This is because if our bliss is known is some cultures, countries or traditions, we will be in danger. These culture skilled people because they were joyous. These people, in their utter joy and divine madness, they said things that opposed the religious interpretation of the scriptures. They went against tradition and conformity.


In great joy a Sufi Master declared, ‘I am God.’ He wanted to share it. His Master warned him to keep his mouth shut and not to utter a word. This man promised,yet moments came when he would shout, ‘I am God.’ And not only would he shout,his whole being would shout. Each fiber of his body would shout! He was so full of light. He was killed, murdered.


Miserable people cannot tolerate a blissful person. It hurts to see somebody blissful. It creates jealousy. It hurts their ego. So Sufis learned to hide it. So have others. Ultimately it is impossible to hide it. Bliss is a luminous phenomenon.


Misery is dark; Bliss is bright. Misery is a light unmanifest, a candle unlit; bliss is a candle lit. How can we hide it? It is impossible. Of course we have not yet created a society that loves these Masters without judgment. We have not been able to create a society that appreciates blissful people. However, even if we lose our life letting our whole being declare the ultimate Truth and joy of Existence, it is worth it.


Man looks small. He is not. He is like a small seed that can grow into a big tree.And a single seed can fill the whole earth with greenery. A single seed contains infinity. Like that, man is a seed of divine love and that seed can become a vast continent. And unless it does, we are never contented. Unless we become pure love with no desire to gain anything except the joy of sharing, we are unfulfilled. Only by becoming total and absolute love, does life come to its ultimate peak. That peak is called God, paradise, and Nirvana.


We must grow towards more and more love. No other prayer is needed, no other scripture is needed and no other discipline is needed. Love is more than any scripture or discipline. It brings its own order; it turns out chaos into a cosmos.

We can govern our mind in the same way we control our body’s movements. In this way, we can decide and declare who we want to be.
It is possible to train our minds and encourage only the thoughts
that are in alignment with our highest possibility, discouraging and completing with low ideas. Let us take responsibility for ourselves
and align ourselves to our peak possibility!'

The Liberated mind has a natural option which the egoic mind lacks — it can function in the world and yet remain in perfect serenity as unmoving Awareness.

When the sense 'I am' and awareness are experienced as one, there is no such thing as ego.
