The great-souled person sees even his own body in action as if it were someone else's, so how should he be disturbed by praise or blame?

I do not worry about the future. A right response to every situation is in my nature. I do not stop to think what to do. I act and move on.

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.

The state of being is permanent and the body and world are not. They are fleeting phenomena passing on the screen of being-consciousness which is eternal and stationary.

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.

You have to awaken, now.
And let go of the dream world.
Many of you are so concerned with your future.
You're so worried about your past.
You have all sorts of plans in your mind.
You're conditioned to believe this, to believe that.
This is what is keeping you back from waking up.
You must let go, in it's entirety, of any hold the world has on you.
You have to stand naked before God.
In the last analyses you have to be your Self without the help of books, teachers, systems, governments, religions.
You have to step out of that rut of your conditioning.
Become totally unconditioned, as if you were just born.
Reading too many books simply adds to the confusion.

Many people don’t realize until they are on their deathbed and everything external falls away that no thing ever had anything to do with who they are.

Internal and external are ultimately one. When you no longer perceive the world as hostile, there is no more fear, and when there is no more fear, you think, speak and act differently. Love and compassion arise, and they affect the world.

When another person makes you suffer, it is because he suffers deeply within himself, and his suffering is spilling over. He does not need punishment; he needs help. That’s the message he is sending.

There are levels in consciousness, but not in awareness. It is of one block, homogeneous. It's reflection in the mind is love and understanding. There are levels of clarity in love and intensity in love, but not in their source. The source is simple and single, but the gifts are infinite. Only do not take the gifts for the source. Realize yourself as the source and not the river; that is all.

The ‘I amness’ is pulsating ‘I am, I am’. The feeling of ‘I amness’
is there because of the essence of the food body and vital breath,
when these are gone the pulsation of ‘I amness’ will not be there.
Beingness goes into no-beingness.

Because of the knowledge ‘I am’ we conduct all activities. In the
morning when you wake up you get the first guaranty, that
conviction of ‘I am’. Then because you are not in a position to
sustain or tolerate that ‘I amness’ you bestir yourself. You get up and move around here and there and the activity starts.

That attention of ‘I amness’ is always there in the waking state, but
we are not alert to watch it. There is no other attention to be
followed. Be attentive to that attention ‘I am’.
