Tragedies come in the world. Don't worry about them. He gives; He takes away. Don't loose your faith in him.

The moment that judgement stops through acceptance of what it is, you are free of the mind.

You have made room for love, for joy, for peace.

Sincerity, one-pointedness, and courage are indispensable qualities in awakening from the dream state of ego to the peace and ease of awakened Being....

Spirituality is essentially about awakening as the intuitive awareness of unity and dissolving our attachment to egoic consciousness....

All things—all beings and all activities, no matter how ordinary—are equal expressions of the Infinite...
There is no more or less Infinite, no higher or lower Infinite. Therefore, all attempts to either find or hold onto the Infinite are based in illusion...
And illusion itself is none other than the Infinite.

The Infinite uses all measures in order to awaken in all the various forms in existence....
It uses birth, life, death, happiness, sorrow, clarity, and delusion in order to awaken. All of your seeking is in reality the activity of the Infinite as well....
No matter how far astray or deluded you become, you can never get a single step away from the Infinite’s embrace....
If you could all at once stop believing your dreaming mind and be completely still right in the midst of your present state, the Infinite would effortlessly present itself..

Some beings have had enough of experiencing.
Their urge for freedom is very strong now.
That company I find most alive.
At some point, many relationships become worn out and tired. They mostly begin to fall away. Do not grieve.
Do you honestly want to find those old conversations interesting again?
A voice within says: Come fully inside. Come lay down here in the silence of Being.
If there is a sadness, it will be to spend our life in separation from our inmost being.

There is nothing outside that is not within you.
This is something that should be remembered all of the time.
You should always be aware of this.
There is nothing out there that is not within here.
If you understand this totally where do you have to go?
Whom do you have to see?
What do you have to read?
What is there to do?
You can simply sit and be the universe and bask in glory and total love, total joy.

71-72.
He should worship Lord Siva using only flowers
that have fallen naturally. He should not indulge in vile
practices such as marana (causing destruction through the
use of certain mantras) uchadana (driving one out with the
force of mantras), vidveshana (causing mutual hatred between
friends), the well known sthambana (freezing one's
capabilities), causing fever, putting into action evil spirits,
causing agitation, wrongly taking control of others, attracting
and infatuating others, and so on. Abandon the worship of
stones, wooden objects and similar articles.

69. Listen to me, Lady! Know that only the wise man
who never does anything which leads to the destruction of
any form of life, such as insects, worms, birds or plants, is a
person who is seeking true knowledge.

70. He (the true aspirant) should not pull out tender roots
(of fragrant plants, which is often done for worship); he
should not even pluck the leaves; he should not harm any
living thing out of anger; he should not heartlessly pluck
even flowers.

68. One must engage unfailingly in yoga (the practice
of Self-abidance) in all conditions, without allowing any
special event to affect one adversely. If, due to doubts, delusion
arises in the form of attraction to worship in holy places and
temples (on account of past practices and vasanas [?]), reject
it immediately.

67. All these (powers) are only bondages to the individual
soul. Further they drag one to follow a low path. The supreme

joy of liberation does not lie in any of them, but only in the
Infinite Consciousness.

66. Even if the aspirant acquires many kinds of
supernatural powers and magical powers such as visualising
what is buried underneath the earth, and can demonstrate
them before the world, he should give up mental attachment
to them.

This is the surest way to handicap oneself, this burdening of one’s mind with the fear of failure and thought of one’s failings. That fear is not true. The greatest error of a man is to think that he is weak by nature, evil by nature.

65. Renounce completely all religious edicts and
disciplines. Since all kinds of action result in bondage, give
up all action plans, mental conflicts, and attachment to one's
caste duties.

64. He does not reap the fruit of actions, good or bad.
Important dates and special observances zealously followed
by the world are not for him*. Give up all actions and all kinds
of worldly codes of conduct.

61. Having thus explained the nature of knowledge to
enable everyone to attain liberation, which is always available,
Page 182
I shall now proceed to describe the conduct to be adopted by
seekers. Noble Lady, listen to them calmly.

62. O Queen among women! Know that bathing in holy
waters, repeating holy names or words (mantras), performing
daily homa (sacred offering in specially prepared fire),
worship, other oblations in lustrous fire, or any other means
(sadhana) to be followed after great study, are never required
for him (the earnest aspirant seeking liberation).

63. Niyamas (strict rules of conduct such as what to eat,
when to eat, how to eat, what to wear, where to sit and so on),
worship of deities in sacred places, nama archanas (worship
of deities by reciting sacred names), pitru karmas (oblations,
etc., carried out for the sake of forefathers to help them reach
a high state), pilgrimage to holy places which have come forth
on earth, and observance of great vows, are all not for him
(the earnest aspirant), if considered deeply.

Reality which is Brahman '. Meditating thus for a long time,
whoever abides imperturbably will become the Supreme

59. The beginningless Consciousness is unborn, whole
and, residing forever in its natural home of the Heart-cave, is
without form, world or impurity. It is beyond comparison and
completely unattached. It cannot be comprehended by the
mind nor can it be seen or felt by the senses.

58. I am not the gross body, nor am I the subtle body. I
am also not the causal body. I am the kinsman of the universe.
I am the One who is of the nature of transcendental knowledge.
I am moreover the eternal One, the Lord, the taintless One,
the One who is devoid of the states (of waking, dream and
sleep), the One who is devoid of the universe.
