Your castle of earth and stone may be beautiful, but unless you dwell in the fortress of the unchanging, you must depart and leave it behind. So keep to the fortress of the unchanging!

Delight in these meditations, my Adored One.
Play with creation as it plays with you.

Playing, become smaller than an atom,
Travel through the expanse of space,
Drink the elixir of immortality.

Bathe in the stream of these life-giving teachings.
Flirt with the tingling sparks of vitality
Surging through your body.
Live your whole life as a festival, a celebration,
Liberated in love and work.

- Vijnanabhairava Tantra

So when something comes in front of you just stay as the Truth, which does not move, and react to the circumstances whatever they may be, good or bad. Just react without any possessive concept in you. Whatever happens keep most interested in Self and see that all rises is Self rising out of Self. Self is not interested in possessing things because Self is total. So don't react with interest or reward or possession. Then you will be free and your interactions will be out of compassion and life will be like sailing in the breeze of non-attachment. This breeze comes from Self and will happen after Freedom, not before.
When you are Free still you have to live because still the world will be there but living will be very compassionate. Just love each other, and hold no hatred with anything. This depends on you, how you take things, and whether this "I" is from the ego or whether it is from Nowhere. The "I" from Nowhere contains the whole universe and this is total understanding itself.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.

Breaking out of the known can be terrifying, and you may lose what you thought was yours, and your trusted images of yourself may melt in the fire of newness, and you may face fear and trembling, uncertainty and doubt, rejection and even ridicule. You may have to learn the hard way to open yourself up to more pain and life may become more uncomfortable than ever... that is, until you fall in love with the deep comfort of insecurity, and the security of living a life worth living

By a steady and continuous investigation into the nature of the mind, the mind is transformed into That to which the ‘I’ refers; and that is in fact the Self.

The biggest misconception in life is the belief that the world to be a separate object, whereas in truth, the world is the expression of the Subject, which is what we are.
Thus the saying, ‘I don’t see the world as it is, I see the world as I am,’ is true.

The person is noisy and seeks Silence but cannot find it.
Silence is not the gift one receives after strenuous seeking alone.
Trust. Grace reveals what mind cannot.
Silence is here, unearned and unrecognised and yet, timelessly present. It is unmixed Presence and is therefore synonymous with You but not with your person.
You exist without the person but the person cannot exist without You.

Discern the Real from the Unreal.

This pure Presence needs no seeking.
When the hypnosis of your own thoughts are broken, you are bathing in this Pure Presence and maya loses all power over you.
This is the tasting of Amrit - the Nectar of Immortality.
This is the most pristine experience, and yet you cannot call it special because it is always available.
All beings are this. We are One Being.

Real understanding, leading to liberation, takes place in Presence not in the person.

Therefore, your initial effort is to lift the consciousness from the personal state to the state of unmixed Presence.

Only when you are synchronised in Presence as Presence itself, does Self-discovering become an effortless joy.

Then Self-inquiry is not merely something you practise, it becomes the mirror you look into to see the face of God.

Don't try to change the world.
First, change yourself or rather, your self-perception, and you find the world automatically corresponding to the level of your understanding.
You will find that it has always been you who set the pace and depth of your experience by recognising and honouring your true nature.

When you realise the Truth of who you are, your whole life becomes religion.
Your very existence becomes service to the one Self, to Truth, to God.

When attention is diverted from the Self towards objects, that is called the beginning of the eclipse. That is the Illusion. That is mind.

Isn't it amusing that the teaching which destroys the individual is exactly what the individual wants? The answer is that there never was an individual. The knowledge comes that the individual was never there.

Objects of the senses are tied like rope by desire which has its youth in the sense of "I".

Everyone is God, but we do not see it unless we see God within ourselves. If you first see God in yourself you will see him in the animals, birds, rocks.
Surrender to God and keep Quiet and he will take your responsibilities. As long as you take your responsibilities on your own head, God doesn't take care and it seems that he is hiding.

When dream ends, deep sleep ensues; when seeds of thought perish, you are liberated. In liberation the seeds of thought do not exist: if a liberated sage appears to live and think, he only appears to do so, like a burnt cloth lying on the floor

By the indiscriminate blending of the two – the Existence-Knowledge-aspect of the Self and the thought-wave of the intellect – there arises the notion of “I know”.

Depending upon the energy of vitality of Consciousness (Atma Chaitanya) the body, senses, mind and intellect engage themselves in their respective activities, just as men work depending upon the light of the Sun.

The moon appears to be running when the clouds move in the sky. Likewise to the non-discriminating person the Atman appears to be active when It is observed through the functions of the sense-organs.

The Universe was created out of joy
and this is why you find joy in the fleeting things of the world. Without joy, life is an ordeal.
You must try to attain to that great Joy
which has brought forth the world.

True knowledge consists in seeing phenomena as void and knowing the one emptiness to the sole unity and real entity. The appearance of the world is only a perspective of the environment that is Divine Consciousness. It is contained in the small space of human consciousness within the soul.
