If you try to practice Self-Inquiry you will find as many of you tell me,
"It's so hard because there are many things happening in this world".
So many people are getting killed.
So much man's inhumanity to man and you cannot hold onto "Who am I?"
So go the other way.
Begin to reason this out for yourself.
Begin to see that there is a power within me that knows the way.
I surrender to this power.
I surrender my feelings, my thoughts, my emotions, my frustrations.
I surrender everything to this power that knows the way.
In other words get yourself out of the way.

Not only are there outward sravana (hearing of the truth) and manana (thinking over what has been heard) but there are also inward sravana and manana. They must occur to a person as a result of the maturity of his mind. Those that are able to do that antara sravana (hearing inwardly) do not have any doubts.

Do not want to be free of your pain.
Do not look for freedom from your pain.
Do you know why?
Because when you look for freedom from pain you believe the pain has substance and it's reality, now you've got to get rid of it.
But in truth and in reality there never was a pain.
There is no pain.
You have to ask yourself,
"To whom does the pain come?"
Your Self can never have pain.

The Sage will never interfere in your life.
Remember the Sage is not a problem solver.
All problems are of the mind.
What does the Sage have to do with this?
Nothing, all works out of the mind.
The Sage is beyond the mind, beyond thinking, beyond thoughts, beyond doing, beyond appearances.
This is why there is nothing more powerful than being with the Sage, and having a quiet mind.


Rumi, 13th century Sufi poet and Mystic

A spirit that lives in this world and does not wear the shirt of love, such an existence is a deep disgrace. Be foolishly in love, because love is all there is. There is no way into Presence except through a love exchange.

God attends to this business of managing the universe; but he is glad to have some help. When the helper is selfless and intelligent, all the powers of the universe are for him to command.

Creation - reflection - rejection: Brahma - Vishnu - Shiva : this is the eternal process. All things are governed by it. After the stage of creation, comes the stage of examination and reflection, and finally the stage of abandonment and forgetting.

Look at your Self or Atma, rather than anywhere else. The eyes may be kept open or closed – it is immaterial. There is only one I, whether you spell it ‘I’ or ‘eye’. There is no point in opening or closing the eyes. Attention must be focused on the inner ‘I’. You are not an eye that can be opened or closed. You may close or open the eyes according to your liking or inclination. It is immaterial, and not important. You will cease to think of the world when you think of the Self. If you are in a room and close your eyes and do not look out, it is immaterial whether you close the windows or keep them open. (The body is the room, the eyes are the window.)

Through the power and grace of the master, the identity you feel is yours is becoming more light, more distant—passing. One day you will ask, “Who am I?” but instead of an answer, an old perspective once disguised as a person will no longer be found.

In that moment you will find yourself established in your true nature.

Thich Nhat Hanh

When you sit, allow Mother Earth to sit for you. When you
breathe, allow Mother Earth to breathe for you. When you walk,
allow Mother Earth to walk for you. Don’t make any effort. Allow
her to do it. She knows how to do it.
When you are sitting, allow the air to enter your lungs. Allow
the air to go out of your lungs. We don’t need to try to breathe in.
We don’t need to try to breathe out. We just allow nature, allow
the Earth to breathe in and out for us. We just sit there and enjoy
the breathing in and the breathing out. There is no “you” who is
breathing in and breathing out. The breathing in and the breathing
out happen by themselves. Try it.
We allow our body to relax totally, without striving or even
making an effort. Behave like the fetus in the womb of the mother.
Allow your mother to do everything for you, to breathe, to eat, to
drink. This is possible if you know how to take refuge in Mother
Earth.

Watch yourself become depressed.
Watch yourself become angry.
Do not deny it, but observe it.
And if you observe yourself correctly in that calm way, you can ask yourself,
"Who becomes angry?
Who is feeling depressed?"
And follow it through.
Do this over and over and over again, as many times as you have to.

Pay attention to the gap - the gap between two thoughts, the brief, silent space between words in a conversation, between the notes of a piano or flute, or the gap between the in-breath and the out-breath. When you pay attention to those gaps, awareness of 'something' becomes - just awareness. The formless dimension of pure conciousness arises from within you and replaces identification with form.

There is nothing to learn at all (laughter).
Who has to learn?
The person who has to learn doesn't even exist.
It is the ego that wants to learn.
The mind wants to learn.
The ego believes it has to know knowledge.
It has to acquire wisdom.
But you are wisdom.
Wisdom is your real nature.
When the ego is gone then you know because you are the universe.
But the one who wants to know is the ego.

The first thing to understand is that everything that has transpired in your life has been necessary.
No matter how it looks, no matter what has happened, everything has been necessary.
The second thing to understand is, everything has been preordained.
In other words, everything was supposed to happen the way it happened.
There were no mistakes.
The third thing to understand is that the first two things are all a pack of lies, for these things do not even exist in Reality.

At present we are conscious of ourselves as a set of adjuncts with object knowing consciousness in which our attention seemingly move away from the self towards the object with separation between knowing subject and known object. In self-enquiry we withdraw our attention from thoughts and objects so that attention rests in self without any oscillation. To posit our attention in this state is the aim of self-enquiry.
