D.: Is it not possible to get a vision of God?
M.: Yes. You see this and that. Why not see God? Only you must know what God is. All are seeing God always. But they do not know it. You find out what God is. People see, yet see not, because they know not God

See how a tree whose branches have been cut, grows again. So long as the roots of the tree remain unimpaired, the tree will continue to grow. Similarly, the samskaras which have merely sunk into the heart on death, but have not perished for that reason, occasion rebirth at the right time; and that is how jivas are reborn

Talk 46.

Do not think yourself to be this, that or anything; to be so and so, or to be such and such...

Be - and there is an end of the ignorance. Enquire for whom is the ignorance

Mind is not your enemy; it is just a play of your own energy. Do not be confused by that; there is no need to follow it.
You are that space of Awareness within which all appearances come and go. Nothing can come and stay. Everything comes and goes.
Don’t associate any image with your Self. Go beyond them. There is no need to be afraid of thought, sensation, or image. Simply stay as the Awareness.
There is no image to Awareness. It is a feelingless feeling— an intuition. You are That. You are not separate from That

When you are in Self remembrance, whatever is not good in your life, will drop out; be it relationships, business decisions, addictions, lifestyle, or anything else. Your Self is the master of your life, remembering yourself, the master of your life. Remembering any God is not required, if you just remember yourself, that is enough, because you are God !

M.: Can the world exist without someone to perceive it? Which is
prior? The Being-consciousness or the rising-consciousness? The
Being-consciousness is always there, eternal and pure. The rising-consciousness rises forth and disappears. It is transient.
D.: Does not the world exist for others even when I am asleep?
M.: Such a world mocks at you also for knowing it without knowing
yourself. The world is the result of your mind. Know your mind.
Then see the world. You will realise that it is not different from
the Self

The reason why you suffer
is because you unconsciously
avoid this moment.

You are unconsciously
but constantly resisting
this moment;
separating yourself from
this moment.

So the path of awareness in meditation
is to get you back to this moment.

And the first part of meditation
is to sit still.

Because the most
physical way you avoid this
moment is by being restless
in the body.

It does not mean
that you cannot be present
while moving.

But for this meditation,
the first part is to sit still
and allow that resistance
to sitting still
be burned away
in awareness.

The second and
main way you avoid
this moment
is through identifying
with your thinking.

You are sitting still
yet you are thinking
about what you have
to do tomorrow.

The thought itself
does not take you out of this moment,
but your identifying with the thought
does.

The thought arises
"I have to go to work tomorrow"
and you are the "I" in that sentence.

And like you are in a dream,
you are lost in the imagination
of tomorrow.

You have successfully
escaped this moment.

This is identification.

Even thinking about
being present
keeps you from being present.

So then the second part
is to learn to either
witness your thinking,

let go of your thinking,

inquire into what is here
beyond thinking,

rest your attention on the bliss
that is here beyond thinking

or to even focus thought
by repeating a mantra.

Any of these methods
are to help keep you present
or at least give you a taste
of the present moment.

But the truth of it is that
you cannot be present.

The "you" who you think you are,
is that which is separate
from the present moment.
It is the very resistance
to the present moment.

So another way to look at it
is that you relinquish the idea of yourself
to realize the present moment,
to realize your are the present moment

and in this
you are free from suffering.

For however long
you can remain
free from thought identification
resting in your natural state
of pure awareness
there is peace.

And every time
you drop into pure awareness
this peace expands
and floods into
all aspects of your life.

Blessings,


Kip

What will strip you back to this place beyond time and intention?
How far are from this place now?

There is nothing external which is not also internal. The mind is all. If the mind is active even solitude becomes like a market place. There is no use closing your eyes. Close the mental eye and all will be right. The world is not external to you. The good persons will not care to make plans previous to their actions. Why so? For God who has sent us into the world has His own plan and that will certainly work itself out

Дорогой сын мой, если ты желаешь освобождения, то оставь свою привязанность к пяти элементам и к чувственным объектам. Избегай их так, как если бы это был яд. Ты никоим образом с ними не связан. Наполни себя добродетелями терпимости, доброты, искренности и удовлетворённости. Пусть они станут для тебя живительным нектаром, твоей главной поддержкой.

Это неправда, что ты сотворён из земли, воды, огня, воздуха и эфира. Ты – не тело, и ты – не ум. Ты – не имя и не форма. Ты не являешься членом семьи или клана. Ты не связан с какой-либо национальностью или культурой. Ты никакими узами не соединён с вещами этого мира. Ты – это не то, что может быть воспринято при помощи грубых или тонких чувств. Ты – свидетель этого всего. Ты – бессмeртная сущность, чистое сознание.



Как только ты прекращаешь ассоциировать себя с телом и начинаешь пребывать в чистом сознании, ты становишься реальной сущностью, которая всегда в покое и безгранично счастлива. Узнавание того, кто ты есть на самом деле есть освобождение.

Такие концепции, как: правильно или неправильно, добродетель или порок, делание или неделание, наслаждение или боль – всё это от ума. Они не твои. Ты – это тот, кто освещает всё своим светом и всё видит. Ты – вечно свободен. То, что ты ассоциировал себя с тем, кто делает, а не с тем кто наблюдает, и было причиной твоей несвободы.

Ты – есть всепропитывающее сознание, высшее блаженство, на которое этот иллюзорный мир одет точно так же, как в сумерках образ змеи может быть по ошибке одет умом на кусок верёвки, валяющейся на земле.


Сожги же этот лес невежества, который до сих пор не давал тебе узнать твою истинную сущность. Уничтожь, наконец, чёрную змею эгоизма, которая так надёжно прятала тебя от тебя же самого, что ты забыл, что являешься ослепительным, вечно свободным сознанием, неизмеримым счастьем.


Если ты станешь расматривать себя – того, который свободен, ты наверняка станешь свободным. Но пока ты будешь продолжать рассматривать себя как кого-то, кто связан – ты останешься связанным. Как ты думаешь - тем ты становишься. Думай о бесконечности – и ты станешь бесконечностью. На деле ты всегда есть бесконечность. Осознай это!


Но, моё чистое и незапятнанное дитя, впав в иллюзию, ты позволил себе вовлечься в мир, и теперь ты думаешь, что являешься частью этого мира. Ты думаешь, что ты тело, поэтому ты оказался связан. Ты был пойман на аркан сознания твоего тела.


Отбрось же ошибочные отождествления и иллюзии! Сруби все эти ложные представления острым мечом правды! Оставь свою глупую идею о том, что ты человек! Отождествляй себя только с неизменной универсальной сущностью Я – чистым недвойственным сознанием!


Ты – не это маленькое тело, существующее в этом мире. Нет! Это весь этот мир существует в тебе! Ты – чистый дух, который пропитывает всю вселенную, и в котором вся вселенная покоится. Ты есть постоянный, не имеющий формы, безусловный, бездонный, вездесущий интеллект.



Ты – это чистое зеркало, в котором весь мир возникает как отражение. Это отражение, включающее в себя всё многообразие мира, появляется и исчезает точно так же, как вселенные пояляются и исчезают в тебе. Ты же – высшая сущность – всегда остаёшься неизменным и спокойным.

Подобно тому, как всепронизывающее пространство находится одновременно внутри и снаружи кувшина (при этом не будучи разделённым стенками кувшина), точно также ты – вечная правда – существуешь внутри всех вещей и помимо всех вещей. Ты есть всё это, и ты – вне этого. Будь счастли
