One who has wisely chosen the straight path of Self-inquiry,
can never go astray... for like the bright, clear Sun...the
Self-Awareness reveals itself to whomever turns towards it.

If the meditator or the identity that is meditating is observable, what observes it?...and the answer I don't want...allow the question some space to happen...and to open up in you...don't say the answer...experience your findings..

The obstacles to the clear perception of one's true being are desire for pleasure and fear of pain...its the pleasure-pain motivation that stands in the way...giving up desire after desire is a lengthy process with the end never in sight...leave alone your desires and fears...give your entire attention to the subject, to him who is behind the experience of desire and fear...Ask...who desires?...let each desire bring you back to yourself...

Whatever you think about with desire or fear appears before you as real. Look at it without desire or fear and it does lose substance. Pleasure and pain are momentary. It is simpler and easier to disregard them than to act on them.

As your ‘Sadhana’ (practice) matures, your conviction grows stronger and you get firmly established in the ‘I am’. That is to say, you are permanently established in the ‘Turiya’ or the fourth state. In this state there are no thoughts or words, everywhere there is only the ‘I am’, you are everything and everything is you. When you abide thus, the stage is set for your transcending the ‘I am’. Ultimately that too goes, leaving you as the Absolute or ‘Parabrahman’.

Whatever comes let it come,
whatever stays let stay, what goes let go,
always keep quiet, and always adore Self:
this is the essence of living skillfully
in the world of appearance.
During all activities of life
is to accept whatever comes
and not care about what does not come.

Things will come so enjoy them and be happy
Let the play happen by the Supreme Power;
you will be taken care of.
Be free to be happy, love has no traps.
If you are happy all will be happy,
if you suffer, all will suffer,
if your mind smells bad others will be affected.
Keep yourself happy in peace, Light, Wisdom, Consciousness
This is your responsibility.
Be happy and have compassion
and live hand and hand with nature.
This makes birth worthwhile.
Start from Heart and see that all arises from Heart.
Always do this, Always be This.

D.: Which time is most suitable for meditation?
M.: What is time?
D.: Tell me what it is!
M.: Time is only an idea. There is only the Reality. Whatever you think it is, it looks like that. If you call it time, it is time. If you call it existence, it is existence, and so on. After calling it time, you divide it into days and nights, months, years, hours, minutes, etc. Time is immaterial for the Path of Knowledge. But some of these rules and discipline are good for beginners.

D.: What is Jnana Marga?
M.: Concentration of the mind is in a way common to both Knowledge and Yoga. Yoga aims at union of the individual with the universal, the Reality. This Reality cannot be new. It must exist even now, and it does exist. Therefore the Path of Knowledge tries to find out how viyoga (separation) came about. The separation is from the Reality only.

D.: What is illusion?
M.: To whom is the illusion? Find it out. Then illusion will vanish.

Generally people want to know about illusion and do not examine to whom it is. It is foolish. Illusion is outside and unknown. But the seeker is considered to be known and is inside. Find out what is immediate, intimate, instead of trying to find out what is distant and unknown.

When you realize that the whole universe is a manifestation of your mind, you become omnipresence. And in the omnipresence is contained all of your needs, and all of your needs are met from within.

If you have died to one of your pleasures, the smallest or the greatest, naturally, without any enforcement or argument, then you will know what it means to die. To die is to have a mind that is completely empty of itself, empty of its daily longing, pleasure; and agonies.

Talk 447.

Sri Bhagavan said that a saint Namah Sivaya who was formerly living in Arunachala must have undergone considerable difficulties. For he has sung a song saying: "God proves the devotee by means of severe ordeals. A washerman beats the cloth on a slab, not to tear it, but only to remove the dirt."

The Buddha said that we should
completely subdue our minds.
Whatever we do, for good or ill, it
is our mind that is the true agent. In
the very depths of our being, we all
desire one thing: we want to be
happy. We don't want to suffer. But
because of this - this wanting - the
three defilements of craving,
aversion, and ignorance arise, and
suffering is what we get. It is
because of these defilements that
we accumulate actions that prevent
us from escaping from Samsara.

So it is important right from the
start to see the difference between
a good motivation and an evil one.
Our own mindfulness should be our
teacher. We must examine what is
positive and what is negative with
mindfulness. If positive thoughts
arise, we should go along with
them. If nonvirtuous thoughts arise,
we should put a stop to them. A
virtuous mind is the source of
happiness. An unvirtuous mind is
the source of pain.

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.

Questioner: The happy hippy stage is behind us; we are serious now and on the move. We know there is reality to be found, but we do not know how to find and hold on to it. We need no convincing, only guidance. Can you help us?

Maharaj: You do not need help, only advice. What you seek is already in you. Take my own case. I did nothing for my realisation. My teacher told me that the reality is within me; I looked within and found it there, exactly as my teacher told me. To see reality is as simple as to see one's face in a mirror. Only the mirror must be clear and true. A quiet mind, undistorted by desires and fears, free from ideas and opinions, clear on all the levels, is needed to reflect the reality. Be clear and quiet -- alert and detached, all else will happen by itself.

Some people say to me: Mooji, I have three jobs, eighteen children and a crazy husband... freedom is not for me!' But I say: Freedom is definitely for you. The sooner, the better also. Wherever you are, whatever your circumstances and situation, right there is a door to your innermost being.

The Ordainer controls the fate of souls in accordance with their prarabdhakarma (destiny to be worked out in this life, resulting from the balance sheet of actions in past lives). Whatever is destined not to happen will not happen, try as you may. Whatever is destined to happen will happen, do what you may to prevent it. This is certain. The best course, therefore, is to remain silent.
