Silent mind means to keep quiet temporarily. It is simply a suppression of the objects in the mind. It can happen many times, but it will not last.

Still mind is also temporary. Meditation or concentration can result in still mind. It is like a flame of a candle. When there is no breeze, the flame will be still. When wind comes, the candle will flicker and go out.

Still mind will be blown away as soon as it encounters the wind of another thought....

Love of God will grow and at the same time the mind will become calm to the extent that one is freed from the thirst for sense pleasures. All the pleasures of the world will become trivial and distasteful if even a particle of His Love is experienced.

If you wish to attain real happiness, you must sacrifice all worldly pleasures, all attachment for fleeting joys, and direct the whole energy of your mind toward God. The more you advance toward Him, the greater the bliss you will realize. The more your mind becomes attached to the world and to sense-enjoyments, the more will you suffer.

Lord Krishna said:
The Lord (Ishwar) dwells in the hearts and mind of all beings but but all individuals are hounded by the illusions of the physical world.
One should try to seek the refuge of the Lord with deep sense of devotion, so that by his grace one can get the everlasting peace of mind.
BG:Ch18:V61,62

God dwells in you, as you, and you don't have to 'do' anything to be God-realized or Self-realized, it is already your true and natural state. Just drop all seeking, turn your attention inward, and sacrifice your mind to the One Self radiating in the Heart of your very being. For this to be your own presently lived experience, Self-Inquiry is the one direct and immediate way.

Don't trust what you have been taught, what you think, what you believe, what you hope. Deeper than that, trust the silence of your being.

The mind can be compared to a pendulum. Like the incessant movement of a clock's pendulum, the mind swings intermittently from happiness to sorrow and back again. Real peace and happiness can be experienced only when the mind stops swinging altogether. From that stillness ensues real peace and bliss, and this state is truly the essence of life.

If your work in life is humble, do not apologize for it. Be proud because you are fulfilling the duty given you by the Father. He needs you in your particular place; all people cannot play the same role. So long as you work to please God all cosmic forces will harmoniously assist you.

Spiritual process is a heightened level of abandon. You do not abandon life – you abandon the straight jacket of a personality that you created for yourself.

ON MIND

" a maddened monkey, stung by the scorpion of jealousy, drunk with the wine of egoism, possessed by the devil of pride and roaming about in the jungle of the world without any check."



Śhruti (Sanskrit: श्रुति, IAST: śrúti, lit. "hearing, listening"), often spelled sruti or sruthi mainly in South India, is the body of sacred texts comprising the central canon of Hinduism and is one of the three main sources of dharma. These sacred works span much of the history of Hinduism, beginning with some of the earliest known Hindu texts and ending in the early modern period with the later Upanishads***

The Way is perfect like vast space,
With nothing wanting, nothing superfluous.
It is indeed due to making choice
That its suchness is lost sight of.

It is easy in the world, to live after the world's opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own, but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps up perfect sweetness and independence of solitude.

I do not say that you must keep on rejecting thoughts. If you cling to yourself, to the ‘I-thought’, and your interest keeps you to that single thought, other thoughts will get rejected and will automatically vanish.

Q: It is, no doubt, very gratifying to hear that one is the silent witness as well as the universal energy. But how is one to cross over from a verbal statement to direct knowledge? Hearing is not knowing.

M: Before you can know anything directly, non-verbally, you must know the knower.

So far, you took the mind for the knower, but it is just not so. The mind clogs you up with images and ideas, which leave scars in memory. You take remembering to be knowledge.

True knowledge is ever fresh, new, unexpected. It wells up from within. When you know what you are, you also are what you know. Between knowing and being there is no gap.
