The world has no existence apart from you. At every moment it is but a reflection of yourself. You create it, you destroy it.

I see what you too could see, here
and now, but for the wrong focus of your attention.You give no
attention to your self. Your mind is all with things, people and
ideas, never with your self. Bring your self into focus, become
aware of your own existence. See how you function, watch the



motives and results of your actions.... Study the prison you have



built around yourself, by inadvertence.

Suffering is a call for enquiry, all pain needs investigation. Don't be lazy to think.

Mind is interested in what happens, while awareness is interested in the mind itself. The child is after the toy, but the mother watches the child, not the toy.

Q: Please come down from these metaphysical heights! The Bengali of East Pakistan is a fact and his suffering is a fact. Please, do not analyse them out of existence! You are reading newspapers, you hear people talking about it. You cannot plead ignorance. Now, what is your attitude to what is happening?
M: No attitude. Nothing is happening.

The mind must learn that beyond the moving mind there is the background of awareness which does not change.

You imagine being and doing as identical. It is not so. The mind and the body move and change and cause other minds and bodies to move and change and that is called doing, action.

The changeful keeps on changing, while the changeless is waiting. Do not expect the changeful to take you to the changeless - it can never happen.

To remember what needs to be remembered is the secret of success. You come to it through earnestness.

The world of things, of energy and matter? Even if there were such a common world of things and forces, it is not the world in which we live. Ours is a world of feelings and ideas, of attractions and repulsions, of scales of values, of motives and incentives, a mental world altogether. Biologically we need very little..., our problems are of a different order. Problems created by desires and fears and wrong ideas can be solved only on the level of the mind. You must conquer your own mind and for this you must go beyond it.

You are the infinite potentiality; the inexhaustible possibility. Because you are, all can be. The universe is but a partial manifestation of your limitless capacity to become.

Q: What exactly do you mean when you ask me to stop being a person?

M: I do not ask you to stop being -- that you cannot. I ask you only to stop imagining that you were born, have parents, are a body, will die and so on. Just try, make a beginning -- it is not as hard as you think.

Questioner: Should I stabilize in beingness or
should I flow with the thoughts?

Maharaj: If you stay put in
beingness the thoughts will get less and less. If you get mixed up with
the thoughts they will multiply. Stay put in beingness only.

Did I ever tell you that you do not know
and, therefore, you are inferior? Let those who invented such
distinctions prove them. I do not claim to know what you do not. In
fact, I know much less than you do.

I see no difference between you and me. My
life is a succession of events, just like yours. Only I am detached
and see the passing show as a passing show, while you stick to
things and move along with them.

Are you acting ever? Some unknown power acts and you imagine that you are acting. You are merely watching what happens, without being able to influence it in any way.

Hold on to the sense ‘I am’ to the
exclusion of everything else. When this mind becomes completely silent,
it shines with a new light and vibrates with new knowledge. It all comes
spontaneously; you need only to hold on to the ‘I am’.

Tirelessly I draw
your attention to the one incontrovertible factor – that of being. Being
needs no proofs – it proves itself. If only you go deep into the fact
of being and discover the vastness and the glory, to which the ‘I am’ is
the door, and cross the door and go beyond, your life will be full of
happiness and l...ight. Believe me, the effort needed is as nothing when
compared with the discoveries arrived at.

Be a spiritual pyromaniac ! Don't transform one kind of karma into another kind of karma...Just burn into ashes whichever karma comes your way! Burn the very seeds of Karma!

Look at yourself steadily – it is
enough. The door that locks you in is also the door that lets you out.
The ‘I am’ is the door. Stay at it until it opens. As a matter of fact,
it is open, only you are not at it. You are waiting at the non-existent
painted doors, which will never open.

The mind covers up reality,
without knowing it. To know the nature of the mind, you
need intelligence, the capacity to look at the mind in silent and dispassionate awareness.
