Take Time:
Take time to think-
It is the source of all power.
Take time to read-
It is the fountain of wisdom.

Take time to play-
It is the source of perpetual youth.
Take time to be quiet-
It is the opportunity to seek God.

Take time to be aware-
It is the opportunity to help others.
Take time to love and be loved-
It is God’s greatest gift.

Take time to laugh-
It is the music of the soul.
Take time to be friendly-
It is the road to happiness.

Take time to dream-
It is what the future is made of.
Take time to pray-
It is the greatest power on earth.

Take time to give-
It is too short a day to be selfish.
Take time to work-
It is the price of success.
There is a time for everything

[Ecclesiastes 3:1-8] Bible

Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi

See More
Jnana is given neither from outside nor from another person. It can be realised by each and everyone in his own Heart. The jnana Guru of everyone is only the Supreme Self that is always revealing its own truth in every Heart through the being-conciousness 'I am, I am.' The granting of true knowledge by him is initiation into jnana. The grace of the Guru is only that Self-awareness that is one's own true nature. It is the inner conciousness by which he is unceasingly revealing his existence. This divine upadesa is always going on naturally in everyone.

Not with feelings of attachment or aversion,
Or out of conceit and pride in your appearance,
Or a wish to gain weight; eat only to sustain the body.

Even more stupid than one who cleans up vomit
Using a golden vase bedecked with jewels,
Is the one who, having been born a human,
Devotes his life to comitting harmful deeds.

To the one who taught this excellent teaching,
In which emptiness and dependent origination,
Are united in a Middle Way—
To the Buddha, I pay homage.

Everything that arises interdependently
Is unceasing and unborn,
Neither non-existent nor everlasting,
Neither coming nor going,
Neither multiple nor single,
To this teaching that pacifies all complexity,
The most sacred speech of the perfect Buddha,
I pay homage!

There is not a single thing

Awareness is primordial; it is the original state, beginningless, endless, uncaused, unsupported, without parts, without change. Consciousness is on contact, a reflection against a surface, a state of duality. There can be no consciousness without awareness, but there can be awareness without consciousness, as in deep sleep. Awareness is absolute, consciousness is relative to its content; consciousness is always of something. Consciousness is partial and changeful, awareness is total, changeless, calm and silent. And it is the common matrix of every experience.

I was undeceived, that is all. I used to create a world and populate it. Now I don't do it any more. [Now I live] in the void beyond being and non-being, beyond consciousness. This void is also fullness; do not pity me. The mind ceased producing events. The ancient and ceaseless search stopped - I wanted nothing, expected nothing, accepted nothing as my own. There was no "me" left to strive for. Even the bare "I am" faded away. The other thing that I noticed was that I lost all my habitual certainties. Earlier I was sure of so many things, now I am sure of nothing. But I feel that I have lost nothing by not knowing, because all my knowledge was false. My not knowing was in itself knowledge of the fact that all knowledge is ignorance, that "I do not know" is the only true statement the mind can make.

When you put a donut in boiling water, a lot of bubbles will come out until all of the moisture in the donut is gone. It also makes a lot of noise, doesn't it? Finally, all is silent and the donut is ready. The silent condition of mind which comes about through a life of meditation is called peace. Meditation is like boiling the oil. It will make everything in the mind come out. Only then will peace be achieved.

This was a very graphic and precise explanation of spiritual life if I had ever heard one!

All objects point to the Ultimate, and a real work of art actively brings whoever sees or hears it to his real nature, which is beauty. The difference between an ordinary object and a work of art is that the object is passive in its pointing towards the Ultimate whereas the work of art is active.

Jean Klein

See More
He who aims at Ultimate Reality places no accent on the things of the world: it would seem completely futile to him since he has ascertained the unreality of things...The world is directed towards the perceiver, it celebrates the ultimate perceiver. He who is established in the Self is in no way interested in theologies and cosmologies. The construction of a cosmological hypothesis, such as the one which looks upon the world as a divine game, is a mental hypothesis due to ignorance, which does not understand the true nature of the Ultimate.

Dr. Klein is unequivocal in his rejection of evolution (spiritual, not physical):

"This notion of evolution is one of the most characteristic errors of modern thought....It is the belief that more can come out of less, that better can be produced by worse. Evolution in the strict meaning of the word, is only an unfolding, a passing from what is implicit to that which is explicit, from what is not manifest to that which is manifest. It produces nothing. It never produces, let alone creates. We cannot rely on it in our search for salvation or liberation. Liberation is not a problem of evolution, for no evolution can lead to liberation, which is the result of discernment only.... We are not concerned with evolving, but we should endlessly put the question 'who am I?' to ourselves."

Ultimately there is no longer a subject who sees nor an object which is seen. There is only oneness. That is what I come here to communicate.

Between deep sleep and awakening, there was a sudden vanishing of all the residues of 'my persons', each having believed themselves hitherto to be a doer, a sufferer, an enjoyer. All this vanished completely, and I was seized in full consciousness by an all-penetrating light, without inside or outside. This was the awakening in Reality, in the I am...I knew myself in the actual happening, not as a concept, but as a being without localisation in time or space. In this non-state there was a freedom, full and objectless joy.

If you accept that relationship is here to make you conscious instead of happy, then the relationship will offer you salvation. For those who hold to the old patterns, there will be increasing pain, violence, confusion, and madness.

Winners focus,losers spray

Winners focus on the results they want to achieve. In so doing, they are able to see what does or doesn't contribute to their goals, and avoid the things that don't help. Losers, on the other hand, focus on all the tasks in front of them. Without a clear-cut way of sorting through all the trivia, they wind up being pushed and pulled by whatever happens. The key to staying focused is having a clear vision of what you're after, and ignoring everything else.

Satsang and the inquiry into what you are will stir up vasanas to be washed away. Pure mind will then rest in its Source.Constantly uplift your mind to Self.Find out what is eternal in this Moment.Two cannot walk the razor's edge so you must remain one-pointed, you must believe in the Unbelievable, and you must face the Unknown. Do not turn back to the known.Stop complicating yourself: Be Quiet.

Do not allow any clinging to any physical form, not even your own self or your Guru. Then you are left alone with Freedom and this will not be a glimpse, it will be a permanent abiding in your own Self.

You do not have to depend on anything to be Free and it is not a glimpse! Freedom is always permanently residing in your Heart so don't get rid of all these aids which give a glimpse of bliss. Don't depend on anything and simply keep Quiet. Let your mind not cling to anything of the past and check its futurizing tendencies.

Consciousness is the sense of knowingness ‘I am’ without words, and it appeared unknowingly and unsolicited. Only in the realm of knowingness ‘I am’ – the consciousness – can a world be, and so also an experience. Hold on to this knowingness ‘I am’ and the fount of knowledge will well up within you, revealing the mystery of the Universe; of your body and psyche; of the play of the five elements, the three ‘gunas’ and ‘prakriti-purusha’; and of everything else. In the process of this revelation, your individualistic personality confined to the body shall expand into the manifested universe, and it will be realized that you permeate and embrace the entire cosmos as your ‘body’ only. This is known as the ‘Pure Superknowledge’ – ‘Shuddhavijnana’.

To me nothing ever happens.
There is something changeless, motionless, immovable, rock-like, unassailable;
a solid mass of pure being-consciousness-bliss. I am never out of it. Nothing
can take me out of it, no torture, no calamity.
