There are good people among your friends-
you can learn much from them. Running
after saints is merely another game to play.
Remember yourself instead and watch your
daily life relentlessly. Be earnest, and you
shall not fail to break the bonds of inattention
and imagination.

Keep quiet. Do your work in the world, but inwardly keep quiet.
Then all will come to you. Do not rely on your work for realization.
It may profit others, but not you. Your hope lies in keeping silent in your mind and quiet in your heart. Realized people are very quiet.

Q: The fact is that here and now I am asking you: when did the feeling 'I am
the body' arise? At my birth? or this morning?
M: Now.
Q: But I remember having it yesterday too!
M: The memory of yesterday is now only.
Q: But surely I exist in time. I have a past and a future.
M: That is how you imagine -- now.
Q: There must have been a beginning.
M: Now.
Q: And what about ending?
M: What has no beginning cannot end.
Q: But I am conscious of my question.
M: A false question cannot be answered. It can only be seen as false.
Q: To me it is real.
M: When did it appear real to you? Now.
Q: Yes, it is quite real to me -- now.
M: What is real about your question? It is a state of mind. No state of mind
can be more real than the mind itself. Is the mind real? It is but a collection of states,
each of them transitory. How can a succession of transitory states be considered real?

Just as a bird leaves no trail in the sky as it flies, the true teaching leaves no trace in memory. The teaching must have no teacher and no student. If the teaching comes from the past or memory or concept, it is preaching not teaching. This teaching never was. It never will be. And it never is.

CONVERTING A CHRISTIAN MISSIONARY

"I can remember one other occasion when Bhagavan appeared to approve of a devotee falling at his feet.

Bhagavan was sitting on a sofa outside the hall and many devotees were coming, prostrating and leaving.

A Christian priest came into the ashram but he didn’t come near Bhagavan, nor did he attempt to prostrate. He just stood at a distance and watched Bhagavan with evident curiosity for about forty-five minutes. Finally, just like a tree falling down, he went down on the floor, prostrated full length and then left. He had obviously had some experience which convinced him of Bhagavan’s greatness but we never found out what it was because he left without saying a word.

After he had gone, Bhagavan smiled and remarked, ‘He couldn’t control himself any longer without doing namaskaram.’"

RESPONSIBILITY FOR NOTHING, OR FOR ALL

M: There is a universal power which is in control and is responsible.

Q: And so, I can do as I like and put the blame on some universal power? How easy!

M: Yes, very easy. Just realize the One Mover behind all that moves and leave all to Him. If you do not hesitate, or cheat, this is the shortest way to reality. Stand without desire and fear, relinquishing all control and all responsibility.

Q: What madness!

M: Yes, divine madness. What is wrong in letting go the illusion of personal control and personal responsibility? Both are in the mind only. Of course, as long as you imagine yourself to be in control, you should also imagine yourself to be responsible. One implies the other.

Q: How can the universal be responsible for the particular?

M: All life on earth depends on the sun. Yet you cannot blame the sun for all that happens, though it is the ultimate cause. Light causes the color of the flower, but it neither controls, nor is responsible for it directly. It makes it possible, that is all.

Q: What I do not like in all this is taking refuge in some universal power.

M: You cannot quarrel with facts.

Q: Whose facts? Yours or mine?

M: Yours. You cannot deny my facts, for you do not know them. Could you know them you would not deny them. Here lies the trouble. You take your imagining for facts and my facts for imagination.

I know for certain that all is one. Differences do not separate. Either you are responsible for nothing, or for everything. To imagine that you are in control and responsible for one body only is the aberration of the body-mind.

MIND AND HEART

D: If the mind is merely a shadow how then is one to know the Self?

M: The Self is the Heart, self-luminous. Illumination arises from the heart and reaches the brain, which is the seat of the mind. The world is seen with the mind; so you see the world by the reflected light of the Self. The world is perceived by an act of the mind. When the mind is illumined it is aware of the world; when it is not so illumined, it is not aware of the world.

If the mind is turned in, towards the source of illumination, objective knowledge ceases, and the Self alone shines as the heart.
The moon shines by reflecting the light of the sun. When the sun has set, the moon is useful for displaying objects. When the sun has risen no one needs the moon, though its disc is visible in the sky. So it is with the mind and the heart. The mind is made useful by its reflected light. It is used for seeing objects. When turned inwards, it merges into the source of illumination which shines by Itself and the mind is then like the moon in the daytime.

When it is dark, a lamp is necessary to give light. But when the sun has arisen, there is no need for the lamp; the objects are visible. And to see the sun no lamp is necessary; it is enough if you turn your eyes towards the self-luminous sun. Similarly, with the mind; to see the objects the light reflected from the mind is necessary. To see the heart, it is enough that the mind is turned towards it. Then the mind does not count and the heart is self-effulgent.

'Food experts' without exception give the advice: 'Yes, you require more protein to overcome your weakness.' This faulty advice is partly the 'tragedy of nutrition'.

The guru is the bestower of silence
who reveals the light of Self knowledge which shines as the residual reality.
Spoken words are no use

The Pure being is the Reality.
The Pure Being cannot be otherwise than Consciousness. Otherwise you cannot say that you exist.

Therefore Consciousness is the reality.
When that consciousness is associated
with upadhis you speak of Self consciousness,
unconsciousness, human consciousness, dog consciousness,
tree consciousness and so on.
The unfaltering common factor in all of them is Consciousness.

The Center of the Hurricane is Peace

People ask me, when I see peace, what do I mean? I don’t have to see peace where it’s peaceful. I feel and see peace in every situation. Whatever there appears to be going on, there is peace. Just as in the center of a hurricane, there is a peaceful circle, total stillness at the center of a hurricane. The same is true in the center of a tornado, in the cyclone.

There is a Center of Peace. We are all that Center.

The true peace is YOU.
