The unchangeable can only be
realized in silence. Once realised, it will deeply
affect the changeable, itself remaining unaffected.

Refuse all thoughts except one: the thought 'I am'. The mind will rebel in the beginning, but with patience and perseverance it will yield and keep quiet. Once you are quiet, things will begin to happen spontaneously and quite naturally without any interference on your part.

Discover all that you are
not -- body, feelings thoughts, time, space, this or that -- nothing,
concrete or abstract, which you perceive can be you. The very act of
perceiving shows that you are not what you perceive.

Give up all
questions except one ‘who am I?’ After all the only fact you are sure of
is that you ‘are’. The ‘I am’ is certain, the ‘I am this’ is not.
Struggle to find out what you are in reality.

Do not bother
about anything you want, or think, or do, just stay put in the thought
and feeling, ‘I am’, focusing ‘I am’ firmly in your mind. All kinds of
experience may come to you – remain unmoved in the knowledge that all
perceivable is transient and only the ‘I am’ endures.

Doer is of the mind; to use mind for any purpose,( even though for self realisation is to abuse it! Because "to do" presupposes a self identification with "doer". When we leave the mind to run by itself like a stomach, doer appears by itself when it is needed.

Earnestness is not a yearning for the fruits of one's endeavors. It is an expression of an inner shift of interest away from the false, the unessential, the personal.

Self-realization cannot be foretold. Some get it spontaneously; others do not get it even with much effort. When a particular stage is reached, there comes about an appropriate change, and the ground is suitably prepared. Then the mind, which wants to either acquire or get rid of something, will disappear.

Delayed response is wrong response. Thought, feeling and action must be one and simultaneous with the situation that calls for them.

The idea of enlightenment is of utmost importance. Just to know that there is such possibility changes one'sentire outlook. It acts like a burning match in a heap of saw dust. A spark of truth can burn up a mountain of lies.

By all means attend to your duties. Action, in which you are not
emotionally involved and which is beneficial and does not cause
suffering will not bind you. You may be engaged in several directions and work with enormous zest, yet remain inwardly free and quiet, with a mirror like mind, which reflects all, without being affected.

When you demand nothing of the world, nor of God, when you want nothing,
seek nothing, expect nothing, then the Supreme State will come to you
uninvited and unexpected.

When you know once with absolute certainty
that nothing can bring you in trouble
except your own imagination, desires, fears,
concepts and ideas are no longer binding
and you will only live with the truth.

Look at the word responsibility—“response-ability”—the ability to choose your response. Highly proactive people recognize that responsibility. They do not blame circumstances, conditions, or conditioning for their behavior. Their behavior is a product of their own conscious choice, based on values, rather than a product of their conditions, based on feeling.

Enlightenment is a full, permanent recognition of what one truly is, free of all false positions, speculations and other mental encumbrances. At the end of a hard day trading, it is enlightenment that is the only thing worth taking home from the spiritual marketplace.

When a human achieves full, deep relationship with the universe, he or she is able to directly interact with the Tao. To outsiders, this appears as a remarkable state. It is, however, the normal state of existence for humans. Humans simply live in a weakened state known as the Social Mind. This weakened state is considered a self-imposed slavery by enlightenment practitioners.

The self-judgment is an obstruction. Stop doing that. Don’t
judge yourself. When you judge yourself, you are judging others also. Then you oscillate like a pendulum. If you feel you’re good, then you are saying that others are not so good. So when you find that others are good, and then you feel that you are no
good, you blame yourself. Judgment is very similar to self-blame and blaming others.
We have to get out of this vicious circle of self-judgment. That is also the state of surrender. When you have surrendered to the Divine that means that you no longer judge yourself. Self-judgment is not necessary. A child is so innocent, why? Because the child doesn’t judge itself.

What-ever happens, remind yourself that only your body and mind are affected, not yourself. The more earnest you are at remembering what needs to be remembered, the sooner will you be aware of yourself as you are, for memory will become experience. Earnestness reveals being. What is imagined and willed becomes actuality -- here lies the danger as well as the way out. Tell me, what steps have you taken to separate your real self, that in you which is changeless, from your body and mind? Q: I am a medical man, I have studied a lot, I imposed on myself a strict discipline in the way of exercises and periodical fasts and I am a vegetarian. M: But in the depth of your heart what is it that you want? Q: I want to find reality. M: What price are you willing to pay for reality? Any price? Q: While in theory I am ready to pay any price, in actual life again and again I am being prompted to behave in ways which come in between me and reality. Desire carries me away.
M: Increase and widen your desires till nothing but reality can fulfil them. It is not desire that is wrong, but its narrowness and smallness. Desire is devotion. By all means be devoted to the real, the infinite, the eternal heart of being. Transform desire into love. All you want is to be happy. All your desires, whatever they may be, are expressions of your longing for happiness. Basically, you wish yourself well.
