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.

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.

There is nothing to practice.

To know yourself,
be yourself.

To be yourself, stop imagining yourself to be this or that.

Just
be.

Let your true nature emerge.

Don't disturb your mind with seeking.

Maharaj: After all, it is the mind that creates illusion and it is the mind that gets free of it. Words may aggravate illusion, words may also help dispel it. There is nothing wrong in repeating the same truth again and again until it becomes reality. Mother's work is not over with the birth of the child. She feeds it ...day after day, year after year until it needs her no longer. People need hearing words, until facts speak to them louder than words.

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.

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.

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.
