If one wants to abide in the thought-free state, a struggle is inevitable. One must fight one’s way through before regaining one’s original primal state. If one succeeds in the fight and reaches the goal, the enemy, namely the thoughts, will all subside in the Self and disappear entirely

The spiritual process is not about moving away from life. It is to use everything in life not to entangle yourself but to liberate yourself

How is the Guru found?

B.: God, who is immanent, in His Grace takes pity on the loving devotee and manifests Himself according to the devotee’s development. The devotee thinks that he is a man and expects a relationship as between two physical bodies. But the Guru who is God or the Self incarnate, works from within, helps the man to see his mistakes and guides him in the right path until he realizes the Self within

What should the devotee do then?

B.: He has only to act according to the words of the master and work inwardly. The master is both ‘within’ and ‘without’, so he creates conditions to drive you inward and at the same time prepares the ‘interior’ to drag you to the Centre. Thus he gives a push from ‘without’ and exerts a pull from ‘within’ so that you may be fixed at the Centre. You think that the world can be conquered by your own efforts. When you are frustrated externally and are driven inwards you feel, ‘Oh, there is a power higher than man.’ The ego is a very powerful elephant which cannot be brought under control by any creature less powerful than a lion, which, in this instance, is none other than the Guru, whose very looks make the elephant-like ego tremble and die. You will know in due course that your glory lies where you cease to exist. In order to gain that state, you should surrender yourself. Then the master sees that you are in a fit state to receive guidance and He guides you

Knowledge does not come gradually, little by little, day by day. It shines forth instantaneously with the ripeness of practice. ~ Ramana Gita, Chapter 17

Going in search of Self (as a goal) is illusion. You are already the One Self. You will purchase the map, only to find you are already Here

Questioner: We have travelled far and wide in search of Enlightenment. How can we get it? Maharshi: Through deep enquiry and constant meditation

The Self is eternal kindness and boundless love, the sole
reality. It shines like the sun and reveals itself as soon as the
false thought is destroyed and no residue remains, for this
thought is the cause of the appearance of false forms. Diving
into the right side of the chest, the adept enters into the attitude
of silence. Thoughts disappear and the state of consciousness,
‘I am that I am’, arises

Earth-bound possessions and glory all fade away, but God-bound possessions hold through eternity, serving with supreme usefulness. Why worship material comfort on the altar of change? Learn to adore spiritual comfort in the temple of indestructibility. The best way to convert earthly accumulations into imperishable heavenly treasure is to use them for spiritual service. Christ must be lived to be known. In all good actions, in every material and spiritual service, and in the manger of meditation, the immortal Cosmic Christ is born anew

8. The disciple surrenders to his master.
That means
there is no vestige of individuality
retained by the disciple.
If surrender is complete
all sense of individuality is lost
and there is
no cause for misery.
The eternal being is only happiness
and that is revealed.

9. You ask if grace cannot hasten
competence for search.
Leave it to Him.
Surrender unreservedly.
God never forsakes the one
who has surrendered.
One of two things must be done.
Either
surrender because you admit your
inability
and also require
Higher Power to help you;
Or
Investigate the cause of misery,
go into the source
and merge in the Self.
Either way
you will be free from misery.

10 The ego submits
only when it recognizes
the Higher Power.
Such a recognition is
surrender or submission.
Otherwise ego remains stuck up
like an image carved on a tower,
making a pretence
by its strained look and posture
that it is supporting the tower
on its shoulders.
The ego cannot exist
without the Power
but thinks
that it acts of its own accord

This spark of divinity is intuitively felt when reflected upon as it is always present in us. Sacred texts point out that to the right of the heart organ there is a reflection of Divine light or consciousness. Sri Ramana says it is located about two inches across, as big as a thumbnail, in the form of an inverted lotus bud. When meditated upon, it awakens. The Divine spark dispels the darkness of ignorance that makes us forget who we really are. Staying perpetually connected with the spark of knowledge is the very purpose of our existence.

Stockholm, December 19 - The Swedish Parliament has approved a law which will regulate the growing, usage and trade of cannabis. This is according to the Health and Social Services of Sweden, Jonas Grönhög, who was quoted, "We don't want to make the same mistakes which the USA has done, we do not want to be prohibitionists because the war on drugs has been lost long ago. It is better to prevent marginalization of young people than jail them for soft drugs usage which are comparatively harmless. If we allow the sale of alcohol, there is no reason to ban the soft drugs no longer

Stay as the Highest. Honour the Truth in yourself. This body was given to you so that you could discover your true nature, the Origin of all, the one unborn Self. To inquire, relentlessly contemplate and strive until you are fully free from the slimy quicksand of the ego-ridden mind. For this single purpose you have appeared into manifestation: to solve yourself by dissolving the you which is the non-self, and thereafter to effortlessly celebrate your discovery as Peace, Love, Light and Joy

I want to tell you this: Right here in the midst of the biggest crisis, the most overpowering fear, lies a portal to the Infinite. It is immovable, sacred and open to those who have the courage or the desperateness to surrender all for Truth
