"People ask me again and again 'After all, happiness matters, no?'

'No! Authenticity matters, not happiness!'

Authenticity is more important, the oozing of bliss starts happening. These two have different ends, bind a man. Even goodness binds you to more and more good until you become the best! Pleasantness binds you and leads you to a different result. Both bring certain bondage.

Both Shreya (the good) and preya (pleasant) approach man; the dhira (wise man), examining the two, discriminates between them. The wise man verily prefers Shreya; but the foolish man chooses preya through the love of gain and attachment. These two having different ends, he who chooses the pleasant over the good misses the true end. That which is good may not be always pleasant and that which is pleasant may not be always good for us.

Every moment life presents the choice of authenticity and inauthenticity to you. It is YOU who needs to choose...it is your responsibility to choose authenticity. No one can save you, no other person can save you. It is you who needs to make the choice. Always choose authenticity even if it appears unpleasant because he who chooses the pleasant over the good misses the true end."

~ Essence of January 2013 morning satsang by Paramahamsa Nithyananda on KatoUpanishad

" Listen to the miraculous fruits of tapas;
When He is in Siva Yoga trance,
Man will find Him as man,
Woman will find Him as woman,
Yogis will find Him as Yogi,
Fiery animals will find Him as their own;
Thus entangled under His compassionate tapas."

~ Agasthiyar Pari Putranam 1200 verse 1101

To experience all objects, in essence, as infinite plains,
To have a vision of the serene space.

[God] won't measure how long you have worked for spiritual attainment; it is your intensity that counts. No matter how many incarnations of bad karma you might have, if your devotion and sincerity are deep enough to bring into your consciousness the light of God, all darkness of the evil of incarnations will be burned away.

Even if you take a mouse's hide and wash it for any number of days
Its black color will remain a black and never becomes white
Similarly, even if you beat a wooden doll it will never speak (it is impossible to change the original human nature)

Medi(fig -Common Ficus carica)), a fruit, looks gorgeous externally,
But when we rip it, we find worms within.
In a similar manner, a coward appears brave outside, but in reality he is not.

Isn't it amusing that the teaching which destroys the individual is exactly what the individual wants? The answer is that there never was an individual. The knowledge comes that the individual was never there.
