For the man of Truth, seeking experience of the supreme state, the heroic action needed, is to draw in, the outward darting mind, and fix it firmly in the Heart.

There can be no experience of the Absolute as it is beyond all experience. On the other hand, the Self is the experiencing factor in every experience and thus, in a way, validates the multiplicity of experiences. The world may be full of things of great value, but if there is nobody to buy them, they have no price. The Absolute contains everything experienceable, but without the experiencer they are as nothing. That which makes the experience possible is the Absolute. That which makes it actual is the Self.

Even to talk of re-uniting the person with the self is not right, because there is no person, only a mental picture given a false reality by conviction. Nothing was divided and there is nothing to unite.

That which should be adhered to is only the experience of Silence, because in that Supreme State nothing exists to be attained other than oneself. That which Is is Mouna (Silence). How can Mouna be explained in words? The highest form of Grace is Silence. The experience of Silence alone is the real and perfect knowledge.

Only the Truth is and you are That! You are the unchanging Awareness in which all activity takes place. To deny this is to suffer, to know this is Freedom. It is not difficult to realize this because it is your True Nature. Simply inquire 'Who am I?' and watch carefully. Do not make effort and do not stir a thought. Look within, approach with all-devotion and stay as Heart. Keep vigilant and you will see that nothing will arise. This is the trick of how to keep the mind quiet and how to win Freedom. This doesn't take time because Freedom is always Here. You simply have to watch: where does mind arise from? Where does thought come from? What is the source of this thought? Then you will see that you have always been Free and that everything has been a dream.

Mahadakash is nature, the ocean of existence, the physical space with all that can be contacted through the senses. Chidakash is the expanse of awareness, the mental space of time, perception and cognition. Paramakash is the timeless and spaceless reality, mindless, undifferentiated, the infinite potentiality, the source and origin, the substance and the essence, both matter and consciousness, yet beyond both. It cannot be perceived, but can be experienced as ever witnessing the witness, perceiving the perceiver, the origin and the end of all manifestation, the root of time and space, the prime cause in every chain of causation.

If you need time to achieve something, it must be false. The real is always with you, you need not wait to be what you are. Only, you must not allow your mind to go out of yourself in search.

Is there a world outside your knowledge? Can you go beyond what you know? You may postulate a world beyond the mind, but it will remain a concept, unproved and unprovable. Your experience is your proof, and it is valid for you only. Who else can have your experience, when the other person is only as real as he appears in your experience?

Any thought that you have reached or are going to reach that state is false. Whatever happens in consciousness is purely imaginary, an hallucination; therefore, keep in mind the knowledge that it is consciousness in which everything is happening. With that knowledge, be still, do not pursue any other thoughts which arise in consciousness. What is necessary is to understand with sure conviction is that all is temporary, and does not reflect your true state.

There are no conditions to fulfil. There is nothing to be done, nothing to be given up. Just look and remember, whatever you perceive is not you, nor yours. It is there in the field of consciousness, but you are not the field and its contents, not even the knower of the field. It is your idea that you have to do things that entangle you in the results of your efforts - the motive, the desire, the failure to achieve, the sense of frustration - all this holds you back. Simply look at whatever happens and know that you are beyond it.


Rumi, 13th century Sufi poet and Mystic

Each soul runs from poverty and destruction. How sad! It is running away from happiness and joy. No one can triumph before being destroyed. O Beloved! Reconcile me with destruction.

Relationship means adjustment, it is giving. But at the same time leave some room for the other partner to give. This needs a little skill - to make the other also contribute without demanding. If you demand, the relationship is not going to last long. Demand and blame destroy love.

Wisdom of East

The secret of seeing things as they are
is to take off our colored spectacles.

That being-as-it-is,
with nothing extraordinary about it,
nothing wonderful,
is the great wonder.

The ability to see things normally
is no small thing;
to be really normal
is the unusual.

In that normality begins to bubble up inspiration.

~ Zen Master Sessan

The emptiness I speak about is not the emptiness the mind imagines. It is not blank. Your body can continue expressing in a natural way. Intelligence is there. Emotions can come. Everything can play, but inside there is total serenity and peace. No planning, no strategizing, no personal identity is there. Just the space of pure being. It is what we are, but we dream and believe we are not.

My Guru Sri Yukteswarji was reluctant to discuss the superphysical realms. His only "marvellous" aura was that of perfect simplicity. In conversations he avoided startling references; in action he was freely expressive.

Shiva instructs Ribhu

Ribhu Gita

90. In dim light the illusion of a serpent is seen in a rope,
and this serpent is nothing but the rope. Even so all illusion of
non-Self exists in the Self only. Thus wise one should give up all
thought of Self and non-Self and ever abide firmly in the peace
of the Self. (Ch.35, v.28)

Ribhu Gita

89. All diversities of world, mind, maya (confusing power
of Brahman), wakefulness, dream, sleep, talk of you and me are
evanescent, and yet, not apart from the Self. Thus wise one
should give up all thought of Self and non-Self and abide as
Self only. (Ch.35, v.27)

Shiva instructs Ribhu

Ribhu Gita

88. I see neither mind nor world during my sleep. In my
dream there is mind with its creation, the dream world. The
dream world is falsified in my waking state. But I-Self exist
always. Arguing thus, one must give up all differentiation of
self and non-Self, and ever abide firmly as the thought-free
alert Awareness-Self-Brahman. (Ch.35, v.26)

87. No world exists during the absence of the mind, and
there is no mind apart from my awareness. So, mind and
world are nothing apart from the Self, and I am ever that sole
Existence-Awareness-Brahman-Self. The wise one should
abolish all thought of differentiation of self and non-Self.

86. If this world of the waking state is not evanescent in
its nature, whatever is seen in the waking state must be seen
during sleep also. Since I as pure Self exist alone and always,
there is no room for thought of non-Self-world. I-Self-Brahman
is the sole Existence. (Ch.35, v.24)

85. Whatever names and forms are seen by me in my dream
are not anything apart from me. Even so, this world seen by me
in my waking state is not anything apart from me, the Awareness-

Self and non-Self, and abide as pure Self only. (Ch.35, v.23)

dissolution of the mind, true renunciation, true wisdom, and
jivan mukti as well. (Ch.34, v.46)
