Even the three gods, Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva, are afraid of such a one because he does not demand anything in the Illusion. He does not want anything.

56. I am the one who is worshipped through sacrifices
and penances by all celestial beings beginning with Brahma
(the Creator), the heavenly damsels who are themselves sought
after, humans, yakshas, gandharvas, nagas and other groups
of superhuman beings, and also by many others. Know that
everyone worships only Me.

"When your mind doesn't stir inside, the world doesn't arise outside. When the world and the mind are both transparent, this is true vision. And such understanding is true understanding."

One of the best ways to let go of your emotions is by practicing Self-Inquiry.

I know some of you have got tired of practicing this.
Some of you believe nothing is happening, but all the same make it a habit.

Think of the many habits you have now, destructive habits.
Habits that do not help you whatsoever in your unfoldment to the Self.
But yet you do these things without thinking, the destructive habits.
Develop a good habit, like practicing Self-Inquiry.

Do not look for results.
Do not look for anything to happen.
Just do it.

If there is peace in your mind you will find peace with everybody. If your mind is agitated you will find agitation everywhere. So first find peace within and you will see this inner peace reflected everywhere else. You are this peace! You are happiness, find out. Where else will you find peace if not within you?

You are pure.
Nothing touches you.
What is there to renounce?
Let it all go,
The body and the mind.
Let yourself dissolve.

PLEASURE BORNE OF SENSE OBJECTS IS DUE TO DELUSION

Question- If the Self is always pleasing and so are sense-objects at the time of enjoyment, let them also be regarded as pleasing.

Shri Ramana Maharshi answers-

The delight in any object is not lasting but what is now delightful soon yields its place to another more so. There are degrees of pleasure and succession of the objects liked. The pleasure in objects is only wanton and not steady. This is possible only if the pleasure is born of one's own delusion and not of the intrinsic value of the objects. For example, see how a dog chews a dry, marrowless bone until blood comes out of the wounds in its mouth, fancies that the taste of its own blood to be that of marrow of the bone and will not part with it. Should it find another similar bone, it drops down the one in its mouth and takes the other. In the same way, superimposing his own joyful nature on the detestable objects of fancy, the man delights in them by mistake, for joy is not their nature. Owing to the ignorance of man the objects which are really painful by nature seem to be pleasing. This seeming pleasure does not remain steady in one object but often shifts to other objects; it is wanton, graded, and not absolute, whereas the Joy of the Self is not captious.Even when the body etc., are cast off, this joy endures in the Self for ever; it is also absolute. Therefore the Self is Supreme Bliss. So far the Being-Knowledge-Bliss nature of the Self has been established.

Relationship is needed only because you can't be alone, because you are not yet capable of meditation. Hence, meditation is a must before you can really love. One should be capable of being alone, utterly alone, and yet tremendously blissful. Then you can love. Then your love is no more a need but a sharing, no more a necessity. You will not become dependent on the people you love. You will share, and sharing is beautiful.

Q: How can I see the world as God? What does it mean to see the world as God?

M: It is like entering a dark room. You see nothing -- you may touch, but you do not see -- no colours, no outlines. The window opens and the room is flooded with light. Colours and shapes come into being. The window is the giver of light, but not the source of it. The sun is the source. Similarly, matter is like the dark room; consciousness -- the window -- flooding matter with sensations and perceptions, and the Supreme is the sun the source both of matter and of light. The window may be closed, or open, the sun shines all the time. It makes all the difference to the room, but none to the sun. Yet all this is secondary to the tiny little thing which is the 'I am'. Without the 'I am' there is nothing. All knowledge is about the 'I am'. False ideas about this 'I am' lead to bondage, right knowledge leads to freedom and happiness.

I have never known anyone in whom the ego sense disappeared and they missed it and wanted it back.
But it comes back by itself and says, “Hi, remember me?”
Who but a fool would invite it in?

Whatever is called God or Self is because there is the beingness,
the feeling that ‘I am’. That is the fundamental principle, the basis
of all your knowledge, but you are identifying yourself with the
body.

With greatest interest you get absorbed in your Self. By giving
attention only to your ‘I’ consciousness you can reach it. Without
giving attention to the body but to the sense ‘I am’.

You have to jump within yourself.
You have to learn to sit in the silence, to quiet the mind and it will come by itself.
You do not have to pray for it, or practice sadhanas, as I said before, do certain rituals, or read certain books.
You simply have to sit, quiet the mind, by observing it, inquire,
"To whom do the thoughts come?"
Be still and know that I am God.

He who has the Beloved in his heart,
he is fulfilled with his Love.
No need he has for formality,
he just enjoys his ecstasy.

He who is stricken by Love
sings and dances out of tune.

f you ask your right from the Father, He will give it to you. To those devotees who urge, He comes. That is what He wants. His whole creation is intended to disillusion you, and thus cause you to draw back to Him.
