Sugar solution can be purified by boiling it with a few drops of milk; similarily can samskaras, the impurities that cloud consciousness, be removed by the contemplation of God. Worldly people as a rule take to religious practices only at an advanced age and soon grew weary and lack in energy. This is why men and women should be taught from early childhood to make God and the search after Truth the center of their lives so that they may not in their old age have to cry out piteously: "Eventide has come, my life is ebbing away. O Lord have mercy upon me and take me across!"
For the maintenance of the body one has to earn money and collect goods; it is right to remember at all times that it is of even greater importance to cultivate and develop one`s inner wealth.

Staying in Your Own Business
I can find only three kinds of business in the universe:
mine, yours, and God’s. (For me, the word God means “reality”.
Reality is God, because it rules. Anything that’s out of my control, your control, and everyone else’s control, I call that God’s business.)
Much of our stress comes from mentally living out of our own business. When I think, “You need to get a job, I want you to be happy, you should be on time, you need to take better care of yourself,” I am in your business.
When I’m worried about earthquakes, floods, war, or when I will die, I am in God’s business. If I am mentally in your business or in God’s business, the effect is separation. I noticed this early in 1986. When I mentally went into my mother’s business, for example, with a thought like “My mother should understand me,” I immediately experienced a feeling of loneliness. And I realized that every time in my life that I had felt hurt or lonely, I had been in someone else’s business.
If you are living your life and I am mentally living your life, who is here living mine? We’re both over there. Being mentally in your business keeps me from being present in my own. I am separate from myself, wondering why my life doesn’t work.
To think that I know what’s best for anyone else is to be out of my business. Even in the name of love, it is pure arrogance, and the result is tension, anxiety, and fear. Do I know what’s right for myself? That is my only business. Let me work with that before I try to solve your problems for you.
By Byron Katie, 'Loving What Is'

' When Sadhana Becomes Successful '

Question: After years of doing sadhana, I still feel I might not be getting anywhere. What to do ?

Sadhguru: It doesn't matter how many years of sadhana you do, you will not get anywhere. Not that you might not, you will not. Because the idea of doing sadhana is not to go somewhere. The idea of doing sadhana is to come to a state where you can simply be here - to understand and know that what is here is everywhere, what is not here is nowhere. Getting beyond the need to go somewhere, that is sadhana, because in fact, there is nowhere to go. There is only here ,and there is only now. The rest is all in your head. Sadhana is to bring you to a state where at least for some period of time in the day, just sitting is good enough. If you live, you are here and now, if you die, you are still here and now. You cannot go anywhere. There is nowhere to go.

Sadhana is a device. It is a method to bring you to a certain level of maturity where the need to go somewhere is gone. That is why people who are steeped in sadhana are not moving anywhere. If you travel around the world, you will still not know whether the world is round or flat, forget about knowing the intricacies of life. But if you are truly here, everything that is worth knowing is right here, because you cannot perceive anything on the outside. It doesn't matter if you sit here or in the Himalayas or Africa or the United States or South Pole or North Pole. Maybe certain atmospheres are supportive , certain are not supportive, that is different thing - but essentially, you can only experience what happens within you.

A common cause of spiritual discouragement is the devotee’s expectation that God’s response will come in a great blaze of awe-inspiring inner illumination. This erroneous notion dulls the devotee’s perception of the subtle divine responses that are present from the very beginning of one’s meditative practices.

God responds to the devotee’s every effort, every devotional call. Even as a novice, you will realize this in your own seeking if you learn to recognize Him as the quiet, inner peace that steals over your consciousness. This peace is the first proof of God’s presence within. You will know it is He who has guided and inspired you to some right decision in your life.

You will feel His strength empowering you to overcome bad habits and nurture spiritual qualities. You will know Him as the ever-increasing joy and love that surges deep within, overflowing into your everyday life and relationships.

Only when you trust the Master more than your senses, you will realize – Master’s words are true, more than your senses. Then you will experience the truth of the Master’s words. Then when Master says, you are God. Then suddenly you will realize yes! Its truth. All these days my body and mind; my senses were telling me I am the body and the mind.

Listen, if you wear it on the head, it is called crown. If you wear it on the ears, it is earrings. If you wear it on the neck, chain. If you wear it on the hand, bracelet. If you wear it on the hip, udayanam - but all of them are made out of the same material called Gold. Same way, what you experience in the deep sleep state, what do you experience in the dream state and manifest in the dream state, what do you experience in the waking state and manifest in the waking state, are all made out of the same material.

Manifested can never be more powerful than the manifester. You are the Ultimate, even if you think you are suffocating yourself by manifesting all the wrong things you don't want in your life. Whatever you think you are manifesting wrongly, with all this you are the Ultimate. Ability to manifest makes you Ultimate.

Actually when there is no incompletion in your thinking,
you thinking is forgotten.
When there is no pain in your knee, your knee is forgotten.
When there is no pain in your back, your back is forgotten.
When there is no pain in your neck, your neck is forgotten.

Integrity is literally like doing Prana Prathistha to you. Till integrity starts, you are only a man. Only with integrity with Sadashivatva starts happening. First of all, have completion with Integrity. Love integrity. It is one of the amazing powers you are given. Integrity is not for controlling you. It is to empower you.

The moment you understand you belong to the ocean, that you are from it, that you are in it, and that you will disappear into it, you will realize that you will never die, because you are the ocean. The moment you realize that you are the ocean there is nothing to possess, because everything belongs to you.

You see, it is all about getting more and more grounded in Sadashivatva, which is Existential Reality. You just need to align yourself to the Existential Reality. If you are building up your self-worth based on money, or your girl friend, boy friend or your wealth, or your car, that is what I call 'Matrix personality.' If you are building your self-worth based on integrity, your spiritual ability, your strength, that is what is based on Sadashivatva.

Please understand, vegetarian, all the surveys prove vegetarians are happier than meat eaters and all the surveys prove vegetarians are more non-violent in their thinking and feeling and in their actions than meat eaters. Study in nutritional journal finds vegetarians have lower incidence of depression, anxiety and other mood problems than their meat eating neighbors. So you need to know, you become what you eat.

Biggest lesson you need to learn - When things don't work, don't change the method, but dig deep. I have seen people will not wait to dig deep. They will look for some other solution. When you approach me with that kind of 'use and throw', utility attitude, you will never be able to explore my depths. Balasanths know when something is not working, they just need to spend little time over it. That's all. Will persistence without changing the methodology or the Guru. That's all !
