Even as exist among men the DARK BROTHERS,
so there exists the BROTHERS OF LIGHT.
Antagonists they of the BROTHERS OF DARKNESS,
seeking to free men from the night.
Powers have they, mighty and potent.
Knowing the LAW, the planets obey.
Work they ever in harmony and order,
freeing the man-soul from its bondage of night.

Secret and hidden, walk they also.
Known not are they to the children of men.
Ever have THEY fought the DARK BROTHERS,
conquered and conquering time without end.
Yet always LIGHT shall in the end be master,
driving away the darkness of night.

Nothing on this earth or in the heavenly realms can overwhelm
or overcome you when you know who you truly are.
Your true Self is perfect, complete and unchanging.
In Satsang, a gathering in truth, this discovery is made possible.
Through the gracious encounter and presence of a Living Master, we Awaken.

Stay as the Highest...Honor the Truth in yourself.
This body was given to you so that you could discover your true nature, the Origin of all, the one unborn Self.
To inquire, relentlessly contemplate and strive until you are fully free from the slimy quicksand of the ego-ridden mind.
For this single purpose you have appeared into manifestation, to solve yourself by dissolving the you which is the non-self, and thereafter to effortlessly celebrate your discovery as Peace, Love, Light and Joy.

Man may travel to the moon and back, but he cannot travel to the sun and back.
Similarly, our attention can travel throughout the realm of the mind, but it cannot travel to the Heart and retain identity.
On entering the Heart's radiance, all journeys end, Only Heart prevails.

There may come a time, when people close to you will challenge you. Maybe you are experiencing the greatest peace you have ever experienced in your life, but still they are worried for you. You are happy and they are not, but still they are worried for you. They even meet together to discuss what is happening to you. You are happy, but they say that maybe you need to see a psychotherapist, because to them you don’t seem to be your old self, the one they project you to be.
No one will understand you, not even the priests, because inside, you don't belong to anybody.
So you have to be strong inside so that even if the whole world should reject you, you will say: ‘Thank you, this is fine, but you can never know me.’
Bless them with love and continue walking in the light of your own way.

We don’t need to know many things – we just become confused; you just need to know the right thing – the thing you need to know now. You don’t need 50 keys to open 1 lock. You need the RIGHT key. You can have a thousand keys, and you’ll just be a thousand times confused, more lost. You just need the right key. So today I’m hoping that we have found the right key to open the mystery into our own nature. When you say, “I am….”, which ‘I’ are you referring to? When you say, ‘I’, what does it mean? This is the birth of inquiry.
Don’t be frightened by the inquiry...it is your friend, it is a tool in the pocket of your heart.

Dropping from the play and relaxing into Itself is called dissolution. Dissolution is the settling back into the Absolute or Parabrahma state. Then for no logical reason, the play starts again.... This continues. What we see as results are the infinite happenings in the universe.

' Atlantis '

List ye, O Man, to the deep hidden wisdom,
lost to the world since the time of the Dwellers,
lost and forgotten by men of this age.
Know ye this Earth is but a portal,
guarded by powers unknown to man.
Yet, the Dark Lords hide the entrance
that leads to the Heaven-born land.
Know ye, the way to the sphere of Arulu
is guarded by barriers opened only to Light-born man.
Upon Earth, I am the holder of the keys
to the gates of the Sacred Land.
Command I, by the powers beyond me,
to leave the keys to the world of man.

Before I depart, I give ye the Secrets of how
ye may rise from the bondage of darkness,
cast off the fetters of flesh that have bound ye,
rise from the darkness into the Light.
Know ye, the soul must be cleansed of its darkness,
ere ye may enter the portals of Light.
Thus, I established among ye the Mysteries
so that the Secrets may always be found.
Aye, though man may fall into darkness,
always the Light will shine as a guide.
Hidden in darkness, veiled in symbols,
always the way to the portal will be found.
Man in the future will deny the mysteries
but always the way the seeker will find.
Now I command ye to maintain my secrets,
giving only to those ye have tested,
so that the pure may not be corrupted,
so that the power of Truth may prevail.

List ye now to the unveiling of Mystery.
List to the symbols of Mystery I give.
Make of it a religion for only thus will its essence remain.

Regions there are two between
this life and the Great One,
traveled by the Souls
who depart from this Earth;
Duat, the home of the powers of illusion;
Sekhet Hetspet, the House of the Gods.
Osiris, the symbol of the guard of the portal,
who turns back the souls of unworthy men.

Beyond lies the sphere of the heaven-born powers,
Arulu, the land where the Great Ones have passed.
There, when my work among men has been finished,
will I join the Great Ones of my Ancient home.

Seven are the mansions of the house of the Mighty;
Three guards the portal of each house from the darkness;
Fifteen the ways that lead to Duat.
Twelve are the houses of the Lords of Illusion,
facing four ways, each of them different.

Forty and Two are the great powers,
judging the Dead who seek for the portal.
Four are the Sons of Horus,
Two are the Guards of East and West of Isis,
the mother who pleads for her children, Queen of the Moon,
reflecting the Sun.

Ba is the Essence, living forever.
Ka is the Shadow that man knows as life.
Ba cometh not until Ka is incarnate.
These are mysteries to preserve through the ages.

Keys are they of life and of Death.
Hear ye now the mystery of mysteries:
learn of the circle beginningless and endless,
the form of He who is One and in all.
Listen and hear it, go forth and apply it,
thus will ye travel the way that I go.

Mystery in Mystery,
yet clear to the Light-born,
the Secret of all I now will reveal.
I will declare a secret to the initiated,
but let the door be wholly shut against the profane.

Three is the mystery, come from the great one.
Hear, and Light on thee will dawn.
In the primeval, dwell three unities.
Other than these, none can exist.
These are the equilibrium, source of creation:
one God, one Truth, one point of freedom.
Three come forth from the three of the balance:
all life, all good, all power.
Three are the qualities of God in his Light-home:
Infinite power, Infinite Wisdom, Infinite Love.
Three are the powers given to the Masters:
To transmute evil, assist good, use discrimination.
Three are the things inevitable for God to perform:
Manifest power, wisdom and love.
Three are the powers creating all things:
Divine Love possessed of perfect knowledge,
Divine Wisdom knowing all possible means,
Divine Power possessed by the joint will of
Divine Love and Wisdom.
Three are the circles (states) of existence:
The circle of Light where dwells nothing but God,
and only God can traverse it;
the circle of Chaos where all things
by nature arise from death;
the Circle of awareness where
all things spring from life.
All things animate are of three states of existence:
chaos or death, liberty in humanity and felicity of Heaven.
Three necessities control all things:
beginning in the Great Deep, the circle of chaos, plenitude in Heaven.
Three are the paths of the Soul:
Man, Liberty, Light.
Three are the hindrances:
lack of endeavor to obtain knowledge;
non-attachment to god; attachment to evil.
In man, the three are manifest.
Three are the Kings of power within.
Three are the chambers of the mysteries,
found yet not found in the body of man.
Hear ye now of he who is liberated,
freed from the bondage of life into Light.
Knowing the source of all worlds shall be open.
Aye, even the Gates of Arulu shall not be barred.
Yet heed, O man, who would'st enter heaven.
If ye be not worthy,
better it be to fall into the fire.
Know ye the celestials pass through the pure flame.
At every revolution of the heavens,
they bathe in the fountains of Light.
List ye, O man, to this mystery:
Long in the past before ye were man-born,
I dwelled in Ancient Atlantis.
There in the Temple,
I drank of the Wisdom,
poured as a fountain of Light
from the Dweller.

Give the key to ascend to the
Presence of Light in the Great world.
Stood I before the Holy One
enthroned in the Flower of Fire.
Veiled was he by the lightnings of darkness,
else my Soul by the Glory have been shattered.
Forth from the feet of his Throne like the diamond,
rolled forth four rivers of flame from his footstool,
rolled through the channels of clouds to the Man-world.
Filled was the hall with Spirits of Heaven.
Wonder of wonders was the Starry palace.
Above the sky, like a rainbow of Fire and Sunlight,
were Formed the Spirits.
Sang they the glories of the Holy One.
Then from the midst of the Fire came a voice:
Behold the Glory of the first Cause.
I beheld that Light, high above all darkness,
reflected in my own being.
I attained, as it were, to the God of all Gods,
the Spirit-Sun, the Sovereign of the Sun spheres.
There is One, Even the First,
who hath no beginning,
who hath no end;
who hath made all things,
who govern all,
who is good,
who is just,
who illumines,
who sustains.
Then from the throne, there poured a great radiance,
surrounding and lifting my soul by its power.
Swiftly I moved through the spaces of Heaven,
shown was I the mystery of mysteries,
shown the Secret heart of the cosmos.
Carried was I to the land of Arulu,
stood before the Lords in their Houses.
Opened they the Doorway so I might
glimpse the primeval chaos.
Shuddered my soul to the vision of horror,
shrank back my soul from the ocean of darkness.
Then saw I the need for the barriers,
saw the need for the Lords of Arulu..

Only they with their Infinite balance could
stand in the way of the inpouring chaos.
Only they could guard God's creation.
Then did I pass around the circle of eight.
Saw all the souls who had conquered the darkness.
Saw the splendor of Light where they dwelled.
Longed I to take my place in their circle,
but longed I also for the way I had chosen,
when I stood in the Halls of Amenti
and made my choice to the work I would do.
Passed I from the Halls of Arulu
down to the earth space where my body lay.
Arose I from the earth where I rested.
Stood I before the Dweller.

Gave my pledge to renounce my Great
right until my work on Earth was completed,
until the Age of darkness be past.
List ye, O man, to the words I shall give ye.
In them shall ye find the Essence of Life.
Before I return to the Halls of Amenti,
taught shall ye be the Secrets of Secrets,
how ye, too, may arise to the Light.
Preserve them and guard them,
hide them in symbols,
so the profane will laugh and renounce.
In every land, form ye the mysteries.
Make the way hard for the seeker to tread.

Thus will the weak and the wavering be rejected.
Thus will the secrets be hidden and guarded,
held till the time when the wheel shall be turned.
Through the dark ages, waiting and watching,
my Spirit shall remain in the deep hidden land.
When one has passed all the trials of the outer,
summon ye me by the Key that ye hold.

Then will I, the Initiator, answer,
come from the Halls of the Gods in Amenti.
Then will I receive the initiate, give him the words of power.
Hark ye, remember, these words of warning:
bring not to me one lacking in wisdom,
impure in heart or weak in his purpose.
Else I will withdraw from ye your power
to summon me from the place of my sleeping.
Now go ye forth and summon thy brothers
so that I may impart the wisdom to light thy
path when my presence is gone.
Come to the chamber beneath my temple.
Eat not food until three days are past.

There will I give thee the essence of wisdom
so that with power ye may shine amongst men.
There will I give unto thee the secrets so that
ye, to, may rise to the
Heavens, God-men in Truth
as in essence ye be.
Depart now and leave me while I summon
those ye know of but as yet know not.

' The Space Born '

List ye, O man, to the voice of wisdom,
list to the voice of THOTH, the Atlantean.
Freely I give to thee of my wisdom,
gathered from the time and space of this cycle;
master of mysteries, SUN of the morning,
living forever, a child of the LIGHT,
shining with brightness, star of the morning,
THOTH the teacher of men, is of ALL.
Long time ago, I in my childhood,
lay 'neath the stars on long-buried ATLANTIS,
dreaming of mysteries far above men.
Then in my heart grew there a great longing to
conquer the pathway that led to the stars.
Year after year, I sought after wisdom,
seeking new knowledge, following the way,
until at last my SOUL, in great travail,
broke from its bondage and bounded away.
Free was I from the bondage of earth-men.
Free from the body, I flashed through the night.
Unlocked at last for me was the star-space.
Free was I from the bondage of night.
Now to the end of space sought I wisdom,
far beyond knowledge of finite man.
Far into space, my SOUL traveled freely
into infinity's circle of light.
Strange, beyond knowledge, were some of the planets,
great and gigantic, beyond dreams of men.
Yet found I Law, in all of its beauty, working
through and among them as here among men.
Flashed forth my soul through infinity's beauty,
far through space
I flew with my thoughts.
Rested I there on a planet of beauty.
Strains of harmony filled all the air.
Shapes there were, moving in Order,
great and majestic as stars in the night;
mounting in harmony, ordered equilibrium,
symbols of the Cosmic, like unto Law.
Many the stars I passed in my journey,
many the races of men on their worlds;
some reaching high as stars of the morning,
some falling low in the blackness of night.
Each and all of them struggling upward,
gaining the heights and plumbing the depths,
moving at times in realms of brightness,
living through darkness, gaining the Light.
Know, O man, that Light is thine heritage.
Know that darkness is only a veil.
Sealed in thine heart is brightness eternal,
waiting the moment of freedom to conquer,
waiting to rend the veil of the night.
Some I found who had conquered the ether.
Free of space were they while yet they were men.
Using the force that is the foundation of ALL things,
far in space constructed they a planet,
drawn by the force that flows through the ALL;
condensing, coalescing the ether into forms,
that grew as they willed.
Outstripping in science, they, all of the races,
mighty in wisdom, sons of the stars.
Long time I paused, watching their wisdom.
Saw them create from out of the ether cities
gigantic of rose and gold.
Formed forth from the primal element,
base of all matter, the ether far flung.
Far in the past, they had conquered the ether,
freed themselves from the bondage of toil;
formed in their mind only a picture and swiftly
created, it grew.
Forth then, my soul sped, throughout the Cosmos,
seeing ever, new things and old;
learning that man is truly space-born,
a Sun of the Sun,
a child of the stars.
Know ye, O man, whatever from ye inhabit,
surely it is one with the stars.
Thy bodies are nothing but planets revolving
around their central suns.
When ye have gained the light of all wisdom,
free shall ye be to shine in the ether --
one of the Suns that light outer darkness --
one of the space-born grown into Light.
Just as the stars in time lose their brilliance,
light passing from them in to the great source,
so, O man, the soul passes onward,
leaving behind the darkness of night.
Formed forth ye, from the primal ether,
filled with the brilliance that
flows from the source,
bound by the ether coalesced around,
yet ever it flames until at last it is free.
Lift up your flame from out of the darkness,
fly from the night and ye shall be free.
Traveled I through the space-time,
knowing my soul at last was set free,
knowing that now might I pursue wisdom.
Until at last, I passed to a plane,
hidden from knowledge,
known not to wisdom,
extension beyond all that we know.
Now, O man, when I had this knowing,
happy my soul grew,
for now I was free.
Listen, ye space-born,
list to my wisdom:
know ye not that ye, too, will be free.
List ye again, O man, to my wisdom,
that hearing, ye too, might live and be free.
Not of the earth are ye -- earthy,
but child of the Infinite Cosmic Light.
Know ye not, O man, of your heritage?
Know ye not ye are truly the Light?
Sun of the Great Sun, when ye gain wisdom,
truly aware of your kinship with Light.
Now, to ye, I give knowledge,
freedom to walk in the path I have trod,
showing ye truly how by my striving,
I trod the path that leads to the stars.
Hark ye, O man, and know of thy bondage,
know how to free thyself from the toils.
Out of the darkness shall ye rise upward,
one with the Light and one with the stars.
Follow ye ever the path of wisdom.
Only by this can ye rise from below.
Ever man's destiny leads him onward
into the Curves of Infinity's ALL.
Know ye, O man, that all space is ordered.
Only by Order are ye One with the ALL.
Order and Balance are the Law of the Cosmos.
Follow and ye shall be One with the ALL.
He who would follow the pathway of wisdom,
open must be he to the flower of life,
extending his consciousness out of the darkness,
flowing through time and space in the ALL.
Deep in the silence,
first ye must linger until at last ye
are free from desire,
free from the longing to speak in the silence.
Conquer by silence, the bondage of words.
Abstaining from eating until we have conquered
desire for food, that is bondage of soul.
Then lie ye down in the darkness.
Close ye your eyes from the rays of the Light.
Centre thy soul-force in the place of thine consciousness,
shaking it free from the bonds of the night.
Place in thy mind-place the image thou desireth.
Picture the place thou desireth to see.
Vibrate back and forth with thy power.
Loosen the soul from out of its night.
Fiercely must thou shake with all of thy power
until at last thy soul shall be free.
Mighty beyond words is the flame of the Cosmic,
hanging in planes, unknown to man;
mighty and balanced, moving in Order,
music of harmonies, far beyond man.
Speaking with music, singing with color,
flame from the beginning of Eternity's ALL.
Spark of the flame art thou, O my children,
burning with color and living with music.
List to the voice and thou shalt be free.
Consciousness free is fused with the Cosmic,
One with the Order and Law of the ALL.
Knew ye not man, that out of the darkness,
Light shall flame forth, a symbol of ALL.
Pray ye this prayer for attaining of wisdom.
Pray for the coming of Light to the ALL.
Mighty SPIRIT of LIGHT that shines through the
Cosmos, draw my flame closer in harmony to thee.
Lift up my fire from out of the darkness,
magnet of fire that is One with the ALL.
Lift up my soul, thou mighty and potent.
Child of the Light, turn not away.
Draw me in power to melt in thy furnace;
One with all things and all things
in One, fire of the life-strain and
One with the Brain.
When ye have freed thy soul from its bondage,
know that for ye the darkness is gone.
Ever through space ye may seek wisdom,
bound not be fetters forged in the flesh.
Onward and upward into the morning, free flash,
O Soul, to the realms of Light. Move thou in Order,
move thou in Harmony, freely shalt move
with the Children of Light.
Seek ye and know ye, my KEY of Wisdom.
Thus, O man, ye shall surely be free.

nanu prāgdīkṣayā mokṣo-
‘dhunā tu prātibhātkatham // 167 //

Nanu (it is a question of Pārvatī), prāk dīkṣyā mokṣāḥ, previously you have told that liberation comes forth by being initiated by a master, i.e. when you are initiated by a master you are liberated. Now you say by your own automatic knowledge [prātibha] you get liberation. What is the right thing then? I am confused!
iti devyā kṛite praśne
prāvartata vibhorvacaḥ / 168a
On this question of Pārvatī prāvartata vibhorvacaḥ, Lord Śiva explains again.
dīkṣayā mucyate jantuḥ
prātibhena tathā priye // 168 //
Priye, O Dear, dikṣaya mucyate jantuḥ by initiation also one gets liberated, [and] by pratibhā also one gets liberated. This is the main thing. By being initiated you get liberated, and with your own automatic knowledge you get liberated.
Now there is a difference between automatic knowledge [prātibha] and initiation [dīkṣa].

gurvāyattā tu sā dikṣā
badhyabandhanamokṣaṇe /
prātibho’sya svabhāvastu
kevalībhāvasiddhidaḥ // 169 //

That initiation is depending on your master, i.e. initiation will be done by your master, initiation won’t happen automatically. When you are initiated by your master then you are initiated; you can’t initiate yourself by your own self. So it is dependent to master, i.e. this [inferior] initiation.
For what purpose he is being initiated?
Badhya bandhana mokṣaṇe. Badhya is who is already entangled in ignorance, in the field of ignorance, in the world of ignorance. The person who is entangled in ignorance, he is badhya. And bandhana is this chain; the chain of ignorance by which he is bound in this universal field. Just to unchain that, for that, initiation is being done.
Prātibho’sya svabhāvastu but this automatic knowledge [prātibhā] which I have explained here, it is just automatic. He has not to depend on meditation, he has not to depend on anything, just awareness. If he is once aware . . .

You see, if you do practice with awareness, with real awareness (I don’t mean this so-called awareness), . . .
DEVOTEES: (laughter)
SWAMIJI: . . . with real awareness, with real awareness if you practice after one hour you will get samādhi; in one hours practice you’ll get samādhi, you’ll get trance. There is no doubt about it.
JOHN: What does real awareness mean, break-less awareness?
SWAMIJI: Break-less awareness, and scattering all other opposite agencies of thought.
JOHN: Which means, those things which would take you away from your awareness.
SWAMIJI: For instance, you are aware, you maintain awareness on that point. On that point of awareness, just this thought will creep there, this leakage that, “this awareness is very nice . . . this awareness is very nice.” He will make friendship with you. That enemy will make friendship with you just to creep in your mind, just to tell you that “awareness is best.” And this “awareness is best” this also is an obstacle. This will create another series of thoughts.
“This is very nice . . . I am so happy . . . and I am one-pointed now . . . I am one-pointed!” This thought also will carry you away from one-pointedness.
So by this, these are the ways and tricks of this māyā, that carry you away from that awareness.
So you have to be aware, bas, AWARE! Don’t let anything like the praise of awareness and nothing happen in between. Just go on doing with awareness, don’t let any thought come. This is what happens and everybody is crying, all disciples are crying, “we don’t achieve anything!”
What will happen to the master?
DEVOTEES: (laughter)
SWAMIJI: He has to suffer.
Gurvāyattā tu sā dīkṣā this [inferior] initiation is dependent to master. But this prātibhā, prātibhā knowledge . . . if once you maintain that prātibhā knowledge (prātibha knowledge means just if you have command on awareness, when you have full command on awareness, don’t let anything creep in), and that is kevalī bhāva siddhidaḥ that awareness will carry you to that greatest power, greatest power of maintaining oneness with Lord Śiva, and without any other support.

kevalasya dhruvaṁ muktiḥ
paratattvena sā nanu /
nṛiśaktiśivamuktaṁ hi
tattvatrayamidaṁ tvayā // 170 //
nā badhyo bandhane śaktiḥ
karaṇaṁ kartṛitāṁ spṛiśat /
śivaḥ karteti tatproktaṁ
sarvaṁ gurvāgamādaṇoḥ // 171 //
punarvivekāduktaṁ tad-
uttarottaramucyatām /
kathaṁ vivekaḥ kiṁ vāsya
devadeva vivicyate // 172 //

Kevalasya dhruvaṁ muktiḥ, kevala is one who is independent in meditating, in maintaining awareness (not meditating), maintaining awareness. You have to be aware, you are there, Lord Śiva is present, just be aware! You have to just remain aware and you are one with Lord Śiva. But that awareness, you must understand what that awareness is. That awareness is very difficult to understand.

There are so many disciples, so many masters preaching this method of awareness, but nobody has understood it. Only one person understands in one billion disciples ‘what awareness really is’.
Awareness . . . you have to see it yourself; you are yourself the authority, nobody will help you there. You have to see yourself what awareness really is. Awareness is one-pointed . . . undisturbed one-pointedness, undisturbed one-pointedness; undisturbed from any other agency.

This is also a foreign agency . . . what?
“This awareness is very nice, it has made me peaceful.”
This thought also, this is foreign agency, foreign matter. This you should avoid. Go on, go on maintaining awareness, then you will see what will happen.
JOHN: But maintaining awareness in meditation doesn’t mean having that point, say you had some point of concentration, it doesn’t mean just having that point and losing your subjectivity–that’s not awareness?
SWAMIJI: No, that point is subjective.
JOHN: Some people believe you hold that point–outward point–and they don’t put any stress on inner subjectivity.
SWAMIJI: No, this subjectivity, this is also one drawback in our understanding. Subjectivity does not reside inside only.
It is everywhere!
Subjectivity is everywhere!
So what can I say, what more can I say? You have to find out yourself. Unless you don’t find out yourself, guru and śāstras will do no help.
BRUCE P: Who finds out, who has to find out?
SWAMIJI: Yourself.
BRUCE P: The individual?
SWAMIJI: This individual; the individual consciousness. The individual consciousness has to find out.
BRUCE P: How could it possible find out?
SWAMIJI: As you are taught by your master.
BRUCE P: But I’m taught that it’s nothing I do?
SWAMIJI: Huh?
BRUCE P: But it’s nothing I do. It’s God grace shining.
SWAMIJI: But that is grace. When once you come to that point, that is grace, that is the sign of grace.
[Laughing . . . !]
It is very difficult sir.
DEVOTEES: (laughter)
SWAMIJI: Kevalasya dhruvaṁ muktiḥ paratattvena . . .
Paratattvena there must be comma, after paratattvena . . . no, after sā, after sā there must be comma [,].

. . . kevalasya dhruvaṁ muktiḥ paratattvena sā, that liberation takes place by awareness founded by you only; not by awareness founded by master. Awareness founded by intellect [śāstras] won’t do anything, awareness founded by master won’t do anything. Awareness must come within your own self. It is why fully aware people will never get mad, it is not possible; they won’t become insane, never! Because they have got fully developed intellect, intellectual power. This is your own intellectual power that will survive there. This is Gods grace, if it survives, this is Gods grace.
So it is definitely you will be liberated by that.

' Conversations with Annamalai Swami '

Saint Tayumanuvar once said, 'Why all these maha yogas [great yogas]? All these yogas are maya!'

If you try to meditate without understanding that your real nature is Self, and Self alone, your meditation practice will only
lead you to more mental bondage.

Bhagavan once said: 'To keep the mind in the Self all you have to do is remain still'.

To realize the Self you don't actually have to do anything except be still. Just give up identifying with the mind and hold onto the Self. That is enough. Be still and cultivate the awareness of ‘I am the Self; the Self is all'. What difficulties can arise from doing a simple practice like this?

Q: The mind doesn't want to be ignored. It wants to spin round and round for ever. I came to you because I thought that you might be able to help me to gain some control over my wayward thoughts.

AS: 'Who came here for help?' Find out who that person is. Don't automatically assume that he exists and that he needs help with his problems. If you think like this your problems will increase, not decrease.

Identifying oneself with the body and the mind results in
ignorance of the Self. This is how the ego takes birth. Detaching ourselves and disengaging from the body and the mind results in the death of the ego. Bhagavan once said to me: 'The one who limits the Self by believing himself to be the body and the mind has ‘killed’ his own Self. For killing the Self he has to be punished. The punishment is birth and death and continuous misery.'

The first step toward Christlike unselfishness is to expand your consciousness to include your neighbors' interests and well-being....Whenever you find a lonely heart, or a brother weeping by the wayside, and your heart goes out to that soul, your consciousness impinges on the Christ Consciousness.

The metaphysical way to Christ Consciousness is through meditation and holding on to the after-effects of meditation....Your present consciousness is limited by the body, but when you expand it by deep meditation, you will become aware of the feelings of all peoples. You will be able to know all things. Marvelous realizations will come to you.

In Christ Consciousness the whole world—everyone and everything in it—is your own. The whole of space and everything in it belongs to you....When you cultivate this consciousness and therein understand that everything is yours, you will have no prejudices about race or color. In that consciousness you feel the love of a million mothers in your heart, not just for a few but for everyone. You do not imagine it, you feel it—this love that Jesus, Krishna, all of the great ones manifested—this universal intelligence and love which is called Christ Consciousness.

' The Realization of Atman '

I am of the nature of consciousness.
I am made of consciousness and bliss.
I am nondual, pure in form, absolute knowledge, absolute love.
I am changeless, devoid of desire or anger, I am detached.
I am One Essence, unlimitedness, utter consciousness.
I am boundless Bliss, existence and transcendent Bliss.
I am the Atman, that revels in itself.
I am the Sacchidananda that is eternal, enlightened and pure.

— Tejobindu Upanishad, 3.1-3.12

15. hridaye cittasamghattad drisyasvapadarsanam //

When his thoughts are diverted to the center of God consciousness, then he feels the existence of God consciousness in oneness in the objective world and in the world of negation.
The literal reading is "When all one's thoughts are diverted to the heart." Here the word heart (hridaye) does not mean our own physical heart. Rather, here the word "heart" means the light of consciousness (cit prakasa) which is the background, the basis, of the existence of the whole universe. On that basis, everything in this universe is moving, being born, dying, suffering, enjoying, smiling, laughing, marrying, etc. Everything has that center of God consciousness as its basis.

This yogi experiences the oneness of the existence of God consciousness in the objective world and in the world of negation. When does the experience of the negation of the objective world occur? The experience of the negation of the objective world takes place at the time of death and at the time of deep sleep. And, in these states also, the yogi effortlessly experiences the existence of God consciousness. How? The yogi accomplishes this by collecting his mind and putting it on that point. Although the mind is always flickering and does not exist in one point, through the practice (sadhana) of one-pointedness, it becomes easy for the yogi to maintain one point. He then discards the differentiation of objectivity and subjectivity and perceives the objective world, which consists not only of external objects but also of his body of wakefulness, his body of the dreaming state, and his body of the dreamless stat e (nila-deha-pranabuddhyatmanah), and the negation of these, which is the void state (Sunya), in its real way as the limbs of his universal body. When you make your mind enter into the light of consciousness then your mind feels this whole universe as one with that universal being.

This is said in Vijnana Bhairava:

O Parvati!, the one who, with one-pointedness, directs all his organs including his mind in the voidness of that heart, which is the light of consciousness, and remains in between the two lotuses of this-ness and I-ness, becomes glorified with God consciousness.
(Vijnana Bhairava 49)

By using the word "glory," this verse indicates that he becomes the ruler of everything that exists. In Svacchanda Tantra, such a yogi is defined as follows:

Such a yogi, situated as one with this whole universe, pervades it. Because he pervades everything which exists, all classes of beings in elements, in the organic world, in animate and inanimate objects, his consciousness is not called God consciousness but rather his God consciousness is transformed into Universal consciousness. (Svacchanda Tantra 4.310)

In the Spanda Karika, it is concluded in this verse:

Do not try to dwell in each and every being. Reside in your own self. When you reside in your self, you will reside in this whole universe because your real self is one with the universe. (Spanda Karika 3.7)
If you reside and are established in the existence of self, you will already be established in the universal self.

You will be amazed to find how much love rises and floods your being when you enter into meditation. Through meditation, you will experience a dimension of your being communicating with you, that you haven't touched before. when you experience lasting joy that no external circumstance can alter, it means that you are moving deeply inwards. You will want to share this joy with everyone you meet.

Just sit by yourself as soon as you wake up in the morning. Close your eyes and visualize that all your things belong to Existence. None of it is yours. Existence is so graceful that it allowed you to have it. Feel the gratitude flowing in you towards Existence. Experience this strongly and clearly. You will see, suddenly the whole thing takes a 180 degree turn. You will wonder what is really yours in the first place. Sannyas starts with gratitude.

Homes have to become incubation spaces which nurture the realization that ultimately, the only home a human being can really know is within. If you do not realize in this lifetime that the ultimate home is within, then the only home you will know will be the grave. This is an understanding that a home is constantly culturing us towards. What one person likes, another person dislikes, and vice versa. Still, because you live in the same home, you come to terms with that. You do not have to try to like it. Learning to live with things you do not like is a huge lesson in life. A home brings us to a place.

Mahadeva is totality of pure living vibrant Consciousness
with all the auspicious good qualities.
When you invoke him, he occupies you and radiate through you as Shivoham.
When he introduces himself to you - it is Authenticity
When he introduces himself through you to others - it is Enriching.

To put God above, you don’t need to put yourself down. Because prayer itself is a technique to break this non-duality. It is to break this non-dual perception, it is to break this non-dual existence! The lower inner image is the worst sin. If you are consciously asked to build that, it’s like you build your own cage where you will be locked.

When you say, "Shivoham" - "I am Shiva". You are surrendering you to Shiva, you are offering you to Shiva, you disappear into him, you relax into him, you rest into him! So, "Shivoham" is Maha Vaakya and Maha Mantra, both together.
