“When we look at the negative side long enough, we ourselves take on negative qualities. When we concentrate on the good, we take on goodness.”

Question.: What is the significance of the life of a spiritually minded householder who has to devote all his time merely to earning a living and supporting his family and what mutual benefit do they get?

Bhagavan .: The discharge of his duties by a householder such as this, who works for the support of his family, quite unmindful of his own physical comforts in life, should be regarded as selfless service rendered to his family, whose needs it is his destiny to meet. It may, however, be asked what benefit such a householder derives from the family. The answer is that there is no benefit for him from the family as such, since he has made the discharge of his duties to them a means of spiritual training and since he finally obtains perfect contentment by realising the supreme Bliss of Liberation, which is the ultimate goal of every path and the supreme reward. He therefore stands in need of nothing from the members of his family or from his family life

Ultimately we must accept that everything which happens from galaxy to atom does not move without the permission of the Divine Will. Who are we with our petty egotistic humanoid perception, based on personal pleasurable satisfaction, to question the actions of the Master of the Universe, which are beyond our intelligence to even remotely fathom?

Questioner: Why is the earth referred to as Mother Earth?

Papaji: The earth is the Mother because without her nobody is born. Because she is the Mother she must be worshipped. When you sit for penance you sit on her chest, so you must salute her no matter what you are doing. When you wake up in the morning you must salute her. She is the Mother. ~pg.300

Questioner: In this play of maya what is the role of the human?

Papaji: Human birth is so rare because it is only in this birth that you can know that all is illusion. ... ~pg. 337

Devotee: I meditate neti-neti [not this - not this].

Ramana Maharshi: No - that is not meditation. Find the source. You must reach the source without fail. The false `I' will disappear and the real `I' will realized. The former cannot exist apart from the latter.There is now wrong identification of the Self with the body, senses, etc. You proceed to discard these, and this is neti. This can be done only by holding to the one which cannot be discarded. That is iti [that which is].

‎" Inspect this need for more!...see if it is anything other than a thought invitation...The ideas we have of awakening, keep us in constant limbo...We keep waiting for something to happen...it is as if we carry a checklist of awakening around with us...convinced that our images and notions of the truth are correct...a short list of our favourite ideas about awakening to truth reads something like this: " All my problems will finally go once I'm awake " " I will not feel pain anymore when I who I am " " Freedom means I will be in constant bliss "
From this we conclude, that if problems appear in life, we can't be there...if the capacity to feel pain is still present, we can't possibly know who we are, and for as long as bliss is not showing up, we are most definitely not there...These fantasies trap us in a continual spiral of seperation...in fact, this checklist of what should be there if one is free undermines one's very freedom.
There are many thoughts like these swirling through the seeker's mind!...but thought by itself has no power...it is only your belief in a thought that gives it life...

In the Christian Bible it says...In the beginning, God formed man, from mud and water, and then breathed life into him...and Man became a living being...So which is man...the body or the breath?..."
Both...The vehicle for the spirit was formed from the Earth...when it was completed, the Supreme Being breathed into the inert form, and the inert form came to life...it began functioning as a biological body and thinking entity...a psychosomatic being...a wholeness...it is here in the Bible, beautifully expressed...the breath of God is the life force, which announces itself in the feeling I AM...the consciousness...I EXIST...Only then could the knowledge of being appear.
Therefore the sense I AM is the breath of the Absolute..."

life
Yukti, the Clarity to understand and realize that however much you change, whatever
you see as reality is itself a continuously changing dream
