What we speak about anybody can reasonably understand. And if it is understood it becomes a trap. Understanding and not understanding are all in the scheme of ignorance, just a realm of mind. This is not learning. This is your birthright. You cannot study to be what you are. You do not need to understand in order to breathe.

As soon as you believe that a label you’ve put on yourself is true, you’ve limited something that is literally limitless, you’ve limited who you are into nothing but a thought.

Praise and blame, gain and loss, pleasure and sorrow come and go like the wind. To be happy, rest like a giant tree, in the midst of them all.

It could be said that the real spiritual journey is from the head to the Heart. However, the Heart does not know any distance or journeys. It is only the head that imagines such things as journeys, trips, tricks and traps. And I am so happy when one sees that one's true Self has always been perfectly happy, peaceful and complete.
It is the greatest mystery in the world, but I wonder... for whom?

Shun your sense that “It is I” and “These are mine.” Without these feelings, the mind is cast down.

You have to drown yourself in this Beingness.
You just have to drown yourself in It;
don't ask for any contracts or guarantee.
You just have to drown yourself in the ocean of the Being.
Just drown; don't ask anything, don't ask for any
favours, just something must be there.
If you have some magic in you, the best way
of the magic is drown yourself completely.
Forget about learning anything at all,
knowing anything at all is just a big bloοdy bondage.

Don't know nothing at all! Nothing at all!
Forget about you and where you want to go
and be anything at all.
Just burn the whole bloοdy house down.

However great your knowledge;
If your ego is not removed,

(8:14) O Partha (Arjuna)! I am reached easily by that yogi of single heart (the heart's feeling focused and uplifted) who daily, continuously keeps Me in his consciousness, wholly focused on Me.

(8:15) Those great souls who love Me and (out of love for Me) merge in My spirit, achieve the highest success (the only kind worth courting). They need never return again to this ephemeral, grief-stricken world.

(9:23) O Son of Kunti (Arjuna), even the devotees of other gods, if they sacrifice to them with faith, are worshiping Me alone, however improperly.

(9:24) For I alone am in truth the Enjoyer and Lord of all sacrifices. Those, however, (who worship Me in lesser aspects) perceive Me not in My true nature, and so eventually they fall.

Freedom means the power to act by soul guidance, not by the compulsions of desires and habits. Obeying the ego leads to bondage; obeying the soul brings liberation.

The Lord is both law and love. The devotee who with pure devotion and faith seeks the unconditional love of God, and who also brings his actions into harmony with divine law, will surely receive the purifying, mitigating touch of God. Any sin, and its consequence, can be forgiven the repentant devotee who loves God deeply enough, and thereby puts his life in tune with the all-compassionate Lord.

There is a game of madness, and it was decided that you must keep on playing this game win or lose, pleasure or pain, and you must keep experiencing it. You call it pleasure, but it must be killed. There is real happiness in killing the enjoyment, but people keep up the imagination, which is really only suffering. If you have killed the enjoyment, that is good. However, the killer of enjoyment must also die.

As the ego keeps the thread of self-awareness unbroken through infancy, childhood, youth, and old age, so also the embodied soul which gave consciousness to the ego maintains it's awareness uninterruptedly, not only through the stages of earth life, but through the appearance of successive bodies.

716. Souls are said to be of four different classes: (1) the bound, (2) those aspiring to freedom, (3) the freed, and (4) those who are eternally free. When fish are caught in a net some try to make good their escape. These may be compared to the aspirants after Truth. Those that succeed in getting out of the net are the freed souls. Some are too careful to fall a victim to the tactics of the fisherman. These are the eternally free. But there are some that fall into the net without realizing their fatal situation. These swim within, settling down in the sediment at the bottom and thinking themselves quiet safe. Such are those worldly-minded men who, though immersed in the illusion of the pursuit of pleasure, feel themselves to be quiet at home. To liberated souls and aspirants after Truth, this life seems like a dark and noisome well.

717. Toy figures are of three kinds - the first are made of salt, the second of cloth, and the third of stone. Now if these dolls be immersed in water, the first will dissolve and lose their form, the second will absorb a large quantity of water, but retain their form; while the third will prove quiet impervious. The first figures represent the man who has merged himself in the Universal and All-pervading Self and become one with it. This is the Muktapurusha (free soul). The second represent the true lover or Bhakta who is full of Divine Bliss and Knowledge. And the third are those worldly men whose minds will not allow even the smallest drop of the Supreme Knowledge to enter.

THE TWO GREAT BONDAGES


294. Women and gold, remember, keep men immersed in worldliness and away from God. It is remarkable that no one has anything but praise for his own wife, be she good, bad, or indifferent.

295. The mind steeped in affection for woman and wealth is like the green betel-nut. So long as the nut is green, it remains adherent to its shell, but when it dries, shell and nut become separated; and on being shaken, the kernel moves within. So when the affection for women and wealth dries up from- within, the soul is perceived as quiet different from the body.

DIFFERENT CLASSES OF GURUS


168. The highest teachers are those who say that God is with Form as well as Formless and that He manifests Himself to His devotees as a Being with Forms.
Have you seen a water-passage running over with the water of the river with which it is joined? The passage has sometimes no trace left, being entirely one with the river-water. But very often there may be noticed a slight movement in its water which proves its separateness from the river-water.
Pretty much the same is the case with the teacher whose soul has become one with the Universal Soul, but in whom there is still this ego of knowledge kept on - a slight trace of individuality to mark his separate existence from the Deity.

THE WORLDLY-MINDED


THEIR NATURE

210. The worldly-minded never come to their senses, even though they suffer and have terrible experiences. Camels are very fond of thorny shrubs. The more they eat of them, the more their mouths bleed, yet they do not refrain from making them their food.

DEGREES OF JNANA

346. Jnana varies in degree and kind. There is first the Jnana or insight of ordinary mortals, men of the world. This knowledge is not sufficiently powerful. It may be compared to the flame of a lamp which can only illuminate the interior of a room. The Jnana of a Bhakta is a stronger light, like that of the moon, causing things to be visible outside the chamber, as well as within it. But the Jnana of the Avatara, the Incarnation of God, is vastly beyond even this, and may rather be compared to the light of the sun. He is indeed the sun of Divine Knowledge, whose light dispels the accumulated darkness and ignorance of ages.

No matter what your work or responsibilities, you must keep your most important engagement - with God in meditation, for all things will betray you if you betray Him. That is why I never miss my appointment with Him, especially at night. Don't go to bed until you feel the joy of God within and without, then all day long He will be with you. Nothing can match that joy.
