What hurts most is having to live as a 'me'
instead of pure 'I'-awareness.

Married or unmarried, a man can realize the Self; because That is here and now. If it were not so, but attainable by some effort at some time, and if it were new and had to be acquired, it would not be worth pursuit. Because, what is not natural is not permanent either. But what I say is that the Self is here and now, and alone.

He is, even while working, in solitude. To engage in your duty is the true namaskar... and abiding in God is the only true asana.

Many people think that it is the function of a spiritual teaching
to provide answers to life’s biggest questions,
but actually, the opposite is true.
The primary task of any good spiritual teaching is not to
answer your questions, but to question your answers.

For it is your conscious and unconscious assumptions and beliefs
that distort your perception and cause you to see separation and division where there is actually only unity and completeness.

In thinking, keep to the simple.
In conflict, be fair and generous.
In governing, don't try to control.
In work, do what you enjoy.
In family life, be completely present

The Master gives himself up
to whatever the moment brings.
He knows that he is going to die,
and he has nothing left to hold on to:
no illusions in his mind,
no resistances in his body.
He doesn't think about his actions;
they flow from the core of his being.
He holds nothing back from life;
therefore he is ready for death,
as a man is ready for sleep
after a good day's work.

There is no reaching the Self. If Self were to be reached, it would mean that the Self is not here and now but that it is yet to be obtained. What is got afresh will also be lost. So it will be impermanent. What is not permanent is not worth striving for. So I say the Self is not reached. You are the Self; you are already That.

You understand all this inside your Heart already. Just sometimes some distractions come, then you bring it back. You stay in this emptiness. Then you observe everything is happening spontaneously! You don’t have to force anything. Leave everything to life. Let life care for life, with your blessing.”

Innocence is the base of all spirituality. The moment you think you know, you are no more a child. You are closed. Knowledge kills and poisons. Innocence opens you and makes you alive. That's why Jesus goes on saying “If you are like children, only then -- and only then -- will you be able to enter into the kingdom of God.

A subtle illumination will be experienced as ‘I-I’ which is no other than the Absolute, the Self, seated in the lotus of the Heart, in the city of the body, the tabernacle of God.

THE MIND GOES ASTRAY , THE MIND RETURNS HOME...

Q: Is perfection the destiny of all human beings?

M: Of all living beings -- ultimately. The possibility becomes a certainty when the notion of enlightenment appears in the mind.

Once a living being has heard and understood that deliverance is within his reach, he will never forget, for it is the first message from within. It will take roots and grow and in due course take the blessed shape of the Guru.

Q: So all we are concerned with is the redemption of the mind?

M: What else? The mind goes astray, the mind returns home. Even the word 'astray' is not proper. The mind must know itself in every mood. Nothing is a mistake unless repeated.

Attention is not the Ultimate. It's important. It's one of your most powerful instruments, because wherever attention goes we call this experience. But something observes attention also. That, which is behind attention, untroubled by the movements of mind, identify this now. A tsunami of thoughts cannot touch that one. It touches the popular identity; it affects the self-image; the ego. But the Absolute is absolutely untouched.

Just see the person you imagine yourself to be as a part of the world you perceive within your mind, and look at the mind from the outside, for you are not the mind. After all, your only problem is the eager self-identification with whatever you perceive. Give up this habit, remember that you are not what you perceive, use your power of alert aloofness.

When a thought is powerful, it is because it has a lot of belief in it. At a certain point, thoughts become irrelevant. When they are irrelevant, the Self fully reveals itself in this moment.

Nothing exists.

You are beyond everything that you can imagine.
You are beyond any words you can say or utter.
You are beyond any thought that you can ever think exists.

You are That and all is well.

IN THE QUIETNESS IS YOUR STRENGTH

Most of you have come to listen to words, but I tell you the message is in-between the words. In the silence, where there is no talk going on. That's the message. That's where truth is, that's where reality is, when there are no sounds, no words. Words are only to motivate you to keep quiet. That's all words are good for. Chanting ,words, they're only to quieten the mind. Keep you still. In the stillness is your reality. In the quietness is your strength, not in the noise, not in the talk. Try to be quiet most of the time. Do not get involved in too many conversations.

People have been talking since the beginning of time. What did it accomplish them? Look at the world, the precarious position it's in. It's all done by talking, talk, talk, talk talk. And now you come here to listen to me talk to add to the confusion. But I say to you, "You have to give up the talking. You have to give up all the dogmas and confusions and nonsense. Drop it all and be still. Be still and know that I am God."

When you are still you will feel the presence of the power. You will feel the absolute reality of what you are. Only in quietness can you feel this...this peace. Not in noise, but in peace, in quietness. Only then will you feel a stillness and a harmony and joy.

ONE PATH AND DIFFERENT FORMS OF ITS expression

D: Which path is best suited to me? Won’t all help be
provided by God?


Bhagavan: Bhakti, Karma, Jnana and Yoga, all these paths are one. You cannot love God without knowing Him nor know Him without loving Him. Love manifests itself in everything you do and that is Karma. The development of mental perception (Yoga) is the necessary preliminary before you can know or love God in the proper way.

D: Can I go on thinking “I am God”? Is that right practice?

B: Why think that? In fact you are God. But who goes on thinking or saying “I am a man”, “I am a man”? If any contrary thought, for instance, that one was a beast had to be put down, then of course you might say “I am a man”. To the extent of crushing down the wrong notion that one is this or that, according to one’s erroneous fancies, to that extent the idea that he is not these but God or Self, may be indulged in, as a matter of practice but when practice is over, the result is not any thought at all (such as ‘I am God’) but mere Self-realization. That is beyond conceptual thought.

GET OUT OF THE DREAM BUSINESS

Stop thinking of yourself as a mortal being, once and for all. Stop it! Cut it out! Behave yourself! Wake Up! Know who you are. Change your mind. Lift it up from this nonsensical thinking, and allow the mind to think in the heart. The heart will open up as a rose does with its calyx to the sun. And you will begin to laugh in joy and ecstasy, that you are the one. The one that is beyond time and space The one that is beyond reality, beyond causation. You are that one. Awaken to it, now. Wake up! Don't just sit there like a lump of manure, wake up! Who do you think you are? You are the god, remember this always. The only god that exists! There is no other god but you.
