I was kissed from inside and that totally devastated me in the most beautiful way. I couldn't carry on with my life the way it was before. It just started to change and it is still changing, but something inside remains unchanging. I found what is not changing and also what is changing therefore, I can enjoy now. This is what causes a smile to happen that is not just with my lips. It happens with my whole being. Joy is that smile.

. Aparigraha means non-possesiveness. That is what I call responsibly owning. It means owning but not possessing. Anyone who owns but not possess is sanyasi, a jeevenmukta. Own the knowledge, the lifestyle, but don't possess them. Let the world own them all.

. Anything you possess will dry up. Anything you own and make others own will flourish.

You are afraid to own your pure consciousness because you are scared you cannot possess it. Because you cannot possess the ocean, you decide to settle down in the beach. Because with beach, you can fence and possess it. Same way, with consciousness you cannot possess it, but you can fence and possess body and mind. Hence you settle down with them.

Drinking water does not become pattern because you are not stuck after drinking it. But after drinking alcohol you are in incompletion. You are stuck in elated or depressed mood. It is the mood associated with alcohol that makes you stuck, not the alcohol itself. If you are in elated mood or self-sympathy mood after drinking alcohol, you want to be in that mood again and again, that makes alcohol an addictive pattern.

The Self is the source background in which the phenomena of thoughts, emotions, sounds, smells, etc. spring as foreground.
When one rest in the background, one can taste Self.
One just has to offer oneself to it.

One of the mistakes you do is that just to eliminate others you create boundaries in your consciousness. But you don't understand boundary can be created in the beach, but not in ocean. You settle down in the beach, and the fence you create is what I call patterns.

The world cannot bear a second birth like that of Ramakrishna Paramahamsa in five
hundred years. The mass of thought that He has left, has to be transformed fast into experience; the spiritual energy given forth has to be converted into achievement. Until this is done, what right have we to ask for more?

You ask: When I am free of the idea I have of who I am or who I should be, do emotions still come?

Yes, even feelings of sadness or agitation may come but they will be momentary; they won't be overwhelming because for emotions or thoughts to overwhelm, you have to be somebody. It is the sense of being a person that gives fire to them. But you are the presence not the person.

Thoughts and emotions have to strike against the idea of a person and then something, a noise, will spark off. But when there is no person, it’s like having a match with nothing to strike against.

There is nothing to learn at all (laughter).
Who has to learn?
The person who has to learn doesn't even exist.
It is the ego that wants to learn.
The mind wants to learn.
The ego believes it has to know knowledge.
It has to acquire wisdom.
But you are wisdom.
Wisdom is your real nature.
When the ego is gone then you know because you are the universe.
But the one who wants to know is the ego.

The first thing to understand is that everything that has transpired in your life has been necessary.
No matter how it looks, no matter what has happened, everything has been necessary.
The second thing to understand is, everything has been preordained.
In other words, everything was supposed to happen the way it happened.
There were no mistakes.
The third thing to understand is that the first two things are all a pack of lies, for these things do not even exist in Reality.

At present we are conscious of ourselves as a set of adjuncts with object knowing consciousness in which our attention seemingly move away from the self towards the object with separation between knowing subject and known object. In self-enquiry we withdraw our attention from thoughts and objects so that attention rests in self without any oscillation. To posit our attention in this state is the aim of self-enquiry.

The realized person has no name, for they are sat-chit-ananda. They are Brahman, emptiness, all-pervading, never born, always has been, always will be. Those words will not come to you, but the feeling of being will come to you. Pure being. Not being this or being that, but absolute reality, pure awareness. That is the final result.

"Sutra on the Middle Way" (Samyukta Agama 301)

Walking the Middle Way

“I heard these words of the Buddha one time when the Lord was staying at the guesthouse in a forest of the district of Nala. At that time, the Venerable Kaccayanna came to visit him and asked, "The Tathagata has spoken of Right View. How would the Tathagata describe Right View?"

The Buddha told the venerable monk, "People in the world tend to believe in one of two views: the view of being or the view of nonbeing. That is because they are bound to wrong perception. It is wrong perception that leads to the concepts of being and non-being. Kaccayana, most people are bound to internal formations of discrimination and preference, grasping and attachment. Those who are not bound to the internal knots of grasping and attachment no longer imagine and cling to the idea of a self. They understand, for example, that suffering comes to be when conditions are favorable, and that it fades away when conditions are no longer favorable. They no longer have any doubts. Their understanding has not come to them through others; it is their own insight. This insight is called Right View, and this is the way the Tathagata would describe Right View.

"How is this so? When a person who has correct insight observes the coming to be of the world, the idea of nonbeing does not arise in her, and when she observes the fading away of the world, the idea being does not arise in her mind. Kaccayana, view the world as being is an extreme; viewing the world as nonbeing is another extreme. The Tathagata avoids these two extremes and teaches the Dharma of walking the Middle Way.

The Middle Way says that this is, because that is; This is not, because that is not. Because there is ignorance, there are impulses; because there are impulses, there is consciousness; because there is consciousness, there is the psche-soma; because there is psyche-soma, there are six senses; because there is the six senses there is contact; because there is contact, there is feeling; because there is feeling, there is craving; because there is craving there is grasping; because there is grasping there is becoming; because there is becoming there is birth; because there is birth, there are old age, death, grief and sorrow. That is how this entire mass of suffering arises. But with the fading away of ignorance, impulses cease; with the fading away of impulses, consciousness ceases...and finally old age, death, grief and sorrow will fade away. That is how the entire mass of suffering ceases."

After listening to the Buddha, the Venerable Kaccayana was enlightened and liberated from sorrow. He was able to untie all of his internal knots and attain arhatship.”

The mind rebels against effort. It always seeks ease and comfort, but if you wish to attain anything you must force it to struggle. That is the only way to make your mind steady. … Regular war must be waged against the mind. To force the mind to obey
you is the ideal of spiritual discipline.
