If one knows how to learn and realize, the Master is revealed everywhere.

The world is but the surface of the mind and the mind is infinite. What we call thoughts are just ripples in the mind. When the mind is quiet it reflects reality. When it is motionless through and through, it dissolves and only reality remains. This reality is so concrete, so actual, so much more tangible than mind and matter, that compared to it even diamond is soft like butter. This overwhelming actuality makes the world dreamlike, misty, irrelevant.

I am other than the body & the mind
I am free from sorrow, attachment, malice & fear
I am changeless, without form & the source of all

I am eternal, devoid of conditions & stainless
I am imperishable, limitless & free from nescience
I am indivisible, unattached & non-dual
I am infinite, without attributes & pure

I am beyond all conceptions, beliefs & thought
I am Knowledge, the known & the Knower
I am Oneness
I am the Absolute Consciousness of the Self

I am full of Supreme Bliss
I am the Supreme Self (Parama Atma)
I alone am the Supreme Reality Alone

Verily,
I am that Supreme Brahman

It is only natural that ever more bliss should be experienced while practising yoga. So long as the One has not been revealed, distractions will come. But the Guru alone can point out whether one is proceeding in exactly the right manner. Transformation means that worldly interests have lost their hold. To the extent to which one becomes indifferent to worldly pursuits will one progress towards real Bliss.

"I AM" IS THE LAST OUTPOST OF ILLUSION..GET RID OF IT...

I want to take you to that ‘I am’ concept which is the last outpost
of illusion and get rid of it. Understand the quality of these
concepts.

There are various types of charity, but the greatest charity is the
renunciation of the knowledge ‘I am’. When you give that up you
escape birth and death. Waking state represents activity; deep sleep represents peace, quiet. When these two are present it means ‘I am’ is there, but you the Absolute are neither the waking state, deep sleep nor the ‘I amness’.

What else is there except the touch of ‘I am’? Why do you worry
about discovering Maya and Brahma and all that? Understand what
this principle ‘I am’ is and you are finished. That ‘I am’ is in
bondage because of concepts

'I am Brahman' (Aham Brahmasmi )is only a thought.
Who says it?
Brahman himself does not say so.

What need is there for him to say it?
Nor can the real 'I' say so.
For 'I' always abides as Brahman. So it is only a thought.
Whose thought is it?
All thoughts come from the unreal 'I', that is the 'I-thought'.
Remain without thinking.
So long as there is thought, there will be fear.

We are believing so many things...I don't think any other creature on the planet speak as much stupidness as human beings...it is true!!...first of all we don't know what we are!!...you think you are flesh and blood and thought...and you don't realize that flesh and blood and thought and movement and All of these things, are just manifestations occurring in You...you are the perceiver of them and therefore if you can perceive or observe something, you cannot be that thing!!...exclusively you cannot be this thing!!...it is a phenomenon appearing in You!!...who are you who witness it...this is the question I am asking...this is a more alive question...but this is a direct and immediate question...
You are there!!...you're seeing everything...all the languages all the ideas...projection...time...past...present...future...relationship...imagination...
philosophy...religion...belief...disbelief...all of these things are in front of You...you know them because you are prior to them...you existed before they came...you are the knower of knowledge and the knower also of ignorance...Who could you be?...reflect on this!!...that which sees everything.
I've been saying...even some thoughts, some sensations are so subtle, they cannot be labelled...they have no concepts to carry them...Still they are in front of You...You perceive them...Who can you be???...

Changing bad to good, wanting positive expe- riences, it's all nonsense. The reason you don't want a positive experience is because you've never had a negative experience. There is no birth. What gave anything birth? Where did it come from? Do you know what anything is? You have no idea what anything at all is, you just give it a name. For instance, a cat, what is a cat? You have no idea. It was here when you came into existence and we called it a cat. Why don’t we call it a tree? We call it a cat. We give everything a name. That's the first mistake because no thing is, what it appears to be. Therefore the first rule of the true spiritual path is called divine ignorance. Divine ignorance.

What we use here sometimes which is a very good beginning is the I-am meditation. You relax your body and you inhale and you say, "I," and you exhale and you say, "am, I-am." You can do this while you're waking, while you're walking, while you're wash- ing dishes, while you're resting. What it does is it makes your mind one pointed, so it'll stop thinking. In other words, you use whatever method you have to, to still your mind. The whole secret is to quiet your mind. To keep it from thinking. To keep it from being active. Your mind is a bunch of waves. You want to stop the waves and you want your mind to become still and the fastest way to do that is by self-inquiry or by observing your thoughts, watching your thoughts, becoming the witness to your thoughts.

If you truly want to repent, just sit in silent meditation and see the perfect reality within, for all manners of error merely arise in erroneous thought, and like the morning due before the rising sun, can perfectly be eliminated through the benevolent light and wisdom.

Suffice it to say, that you as you exist now are complete emptiness. You are pure intelligence, pure awareness, absolute reality, nirvana, just the way you are, right now! Do not think about it. If you think about it you spoil it, just the way you are this moment. You are pure intelligence, absolute reality, you are the unborn, but every time a thought comes into your mind you spoil it.

REPEATING THE HIGHEST MANTRA

If you find the vichara marga [the path of self-enquiry] too hard, you can go on repeating 'I', 'I', and that will lead you to same goal. There is no harm in using 'I' as a mantra. It is the first name of God. (Day by Day with Bhagavan, 8th May 1946)

A housewife who complained that self-enquiry was too hard and that she had no time for meditation received a similar answer:

If you can do nothing more, at least continue saying 'I', 'I' to yourself all the time, as advised in Who Am I?, whatever you may be doing, and whether you are sitting, standing or walking, 'I' is the name of God. It is the first and greatest of all mantras. (Day by Day with Bhagavan, 28th June 1946)

Even though the reality of the Self has been stated in many ways, it remains untold. The Self is known only by actual experience. That experiential Awareness of the Self is prevented by the mind due to the firmly established conviction that 'I am the body, ego/mind.'

This ‘I’-thought is not pure. It is contaminated with the association of the body and senses. See to whom the trouble is. It is to the ‘I’-thought. Hold it. Then the other thoughts vanish.

BALANCE: Balance in activity, balance in food and balance in your rest, your sleep - will bring equilibrium within you. A lazy person cannot achieve samadhi, meditation, yoga. Neither will those who always work too much, they are too tired. They sit on the bed and fall asleep, they cannot meditate either. Somewhere in-between ....
