When the truth is clearly seen , it is mind that is liberated from its own ignorance .

You say you suffer every time we are not together, and you wish to not feel even one millimeter of separation.
Then I have to say: In order to destroy this intense feeling of separation, you are going to have to kill or transcend the idea that there is, in reality, a ‘you’ and a ‘me’ as distinctly separate beings.
You must enter the fire of self-discovery full heartedly.
It is the fire of self-investigation; the fire that burns the unreal, thus unveiling the true Self.
It will instill inside your Heart total surrender, devotion and love.
You must step into this fire fully and bring me into the fire with you also so that whatever is unreal, imagined or projected is burnt, you see?
Then what comes out of this fire will be purer than all the ideas we have of who we both are and any distance between us. Only then will all duality and separation be over.

Nothing is wrong with you, but the ideas you have of yourself are altogether wrong. It is not you who desires, fears and suffers, it is the person built on the foundation of your body by circumstances and influences. You are not that person. This must be clearly established in your mind and never lost sight of.


...from 'I Am That', chapter 83

Be brave , having conquered the mind and the senses .

Be desireless , content with what comes to you unsought .

Live effortlessly , without grabbing or giving up anything .

Be free from all mental perversions and from the blinding taint of illusion

Be on fire for Truth.
Burn completely to ashes.
For the ashes of God are greater
than the rubies of this world

God is the creator of all, even of cosmic delusion; but it is man's response to maya through the misuse of the divine gift of free choice that creates in him the sense of egoism and the desire to act according to its dictates and to enjoy the fruits of actions.

When man exercises discrimination and does not respond to cosmic delusion, he uses his free will rightly to choose only the influence of the inner divine wisdom. Thus he escapes the punishment that results from the false conviction of being an independent doer of actions

The soul is bound to the body by a chain of desires, temptations, troubles, and worries, and it is trying to free itself. If you keep tugging at that chain which is holding you to mortal consciousness, some day an invisible Divine Hand will intervene and snap it apart, and you will be free.

55. Thinking, `I am the Lord of all creations, moving or
stationary, I remain as father, mother and father's father for
the universe', aspirants for mukti contemplate with
concentration and ardour only upon Me, who am that great
turiya state (the substratum of the waking, dream and
sleep states).

54. I am the Self which is Consciousness, absolute
completeness, deathless and self-established, and which is
other than this insentient body, limited between the top of the
head and the sole of the foot, and which, beginning with the
antahkaranas (the inner instruments such as mind and
intellect) is bounded by the covering of the skin.

53. I am pure Awareness, immaculate, perfectly liberated;
and forever present everywhere. I am indeterminable. No one
can grasp me or leave me. I am free from sorrow. I am always
brahmamayam (of the nature of Brahman ).

52. He who is described in the scriptures as the unborn
and Lord, I am He, the Atman (Self), who is forever without
form or qualities. There is absolutely no doubt about it.

51. The day one is able to see oneself with his inner eye
as not the body, all his desires vanish, and he experiences
perfect peace.

50. Know that the person who experiences the firm
conviction, `I am the Supreme Brahman [?], I am the Master and
Lord of the Universe!' is the real mukta [?](one who has attained
liberation), and that the one following conflicting paths is in
bondage.

49. I alone am. No one belongs to me; nor do I belong to
anyone else. I can see no one who can call me his; neither can
I see anyone who is mine. I am all alone.

48. Giving up all notions about country, caste, blemishless
community, asrama (status as a bachelor, family man, ascetic
or one who has renounced the world) and associated matters,
hold on to and practise always meditation upon the Self, your
own natural state.

47. With great devotion meditating constantly that `I am
that Siva the form of the one Consciousness that is always
unsullied by any adjunct,' dispel all your attachments.

46. The Consciousness which shines as `I' in the Heart-
lotus is pure (flawless) and perfectly steady (without a trace
of movement). By destroying the ego, which rises (from that
Consciousness), that Consciousness itself bestows the supreme
joy of liberation. Be sure about it.

45. A wise man should not give up the body out of aversion
to it. Know that when once the prarabdha karma [?](result of
accumulated actions) which was responsible for the creation
of the body ceases, the bodily burden will automatically
fall off.

44. All objects of attachments are said to be pairs of
opposites (happiness and misery, good and bad, profit and
loss, victory and defeat, and so on). When one rises above
those pairs of opposites, one realises the Supreme. Such a
yogi is a jivanmukta, liberated from bondage. On discarding
the body, he becomes a videhamukta.

43. Gods and goddesses, merits, demerits and their fruits,
which are likewise anya (other than oneself), objects of
attachment and the knowledge of those objects -- all these
will lead one to bondage in mighty samsara.

42. Know that whoever meditates on that supreme void,
and becomes established in it by virtue of constant practice,
will definitely attain the great state which is beyond birth and
death.

41. Dispelling all attachments completely, and fixing that
mind in the Heart firmly, persist in your practice always in
order to strengthen the awareness, which then shines forth
with great effulgence and clarity.

40. The state in which the mind is bereft of any support
to cling to, ever faultless and pure, and devoid of worldly
attachments, is the nature of liberation attained through
knowledge. Keep this firmly in mind.

39. If the mind falls asleep, awaken it. Then if it starts
wandering, make it quiet. If you reach the state where there is
neither sleep nor movement of mind, stay still in that, the
natural (real) state.

I sought love in many lives. I shed bitter tears of separation and repentance to know what love is. I sacrificed everything, all attachment and delusion, to learn at last that I am in love with Love -- with God -- alone. Then I drank love through all true hearts.
