Always bear this in mind: Everything is in God’s hands, and you are His tool to be used by Him as He pleases. Try to grasp the significance of ‘all is His’ and you will immediately feel free from all burdens. What will be the result of your surrender to Him? None will seem alien, all will be your very own Self.

Beneath the ever-flowing stream of sensations, including mind and the ‘I’ sense, there is only this. The wise refer to it as the sole reality—as That which Is. It could also be referred to as Buddha-being but no Buddha.
Now, what further inquiry is needed? Inquiry is necessary only when the sense ‘I’ arises and swells up, to the extent that detached and silent observation seems eclipsed or overpowered by intense personal identification with the unreal. Should this occur, find out immediately who is affected or involved in that play. Who suffers? Keep quiet, dive within and track down the sufferer. Is it real? Tangible? Can it be held in view?

Excerpt From: Mooji. “Before I Am.”

You should develop loving kindness to everyone and everything,
not only to human beings, to animals, to vegetables, to minerals.
You should treat everything with loving kindness.
You should acquire a good disposition and stop getting angry.
You should develop joy within yourself, humility.
You should not be concerned with what the world is doing.
You should not be concerned with what appears to be happening to you. But every reaction of yours should be based on love, on peace,
on loving kindness, compassion.

If we love everyone as a mother loves her dearest child there will be no basis for any problems to arise because our mind will always be at peace. Love is the real inner protection against suffering.

Everything is as it is. It
has no name other than the
name we give it. It is we
who call it something; we
give it a value. We say this
thing is good or it’s bad, but
in itself, the thing is only as
it is. It’s not absolute; it’s
just as it is. People are just
as they are.

Those who don`t feel this Love
pulling them like a river,
those who don`t drink dawn
like a cup of springwater
or take in sunset like supper,
those who don`t want to change,
let them sleep.

This Love is beyond the study of theology,
that old trickery and hypocrisy.
If you want to improve your mind that way,
sleep on.

I`ve given up on my brain.
I`ve torn the cloth to shreds
and thrown it away.

If you`re not completely naked,
wrap your beautiful robe of words
around you,
and sleep.

If you keep indulging the mind's play, you will miss the untouched stillness inside the heart.

We will know in due course that our glory lies where we cease to exist. In order to gain the state, one should surrender saying, "Lord, thou art my refuge." The master then sees that this person is in a fit state to receive guidance, and so gives it. The best instruction is heart-to-heart speech in silence.

Attach to the real. Changes are many. Lessons are many. The flow of life plays out. The fog slowly lifts and the path becomes visible. But always be aware that the path is like the Ganges, always changing, never still. That is why we would bathe in it early each morning. To remind us, to understand, that change is the Law of Nature. This is the great lesson. See? And my message of Truth, Simplicity and Love is the tool for living in the river of change. Change, change, change ... this is the way of the Universe. But there is a stillness, a ground of being, where I am no-body, no-thing, eternally observing all of this change. This is the realm of the Higher Self.

You all think devotion is fun. Some day you will have to jump without fear of life or death; then you will be able to make progress. When the time comes, you will have to walk through fire and water.

That which cannot change, remains. The great peace, the deep silence, the hidden beauty of reality remain.
While it cannot be conveyed through words, it is waiting for you to experience for yourself.

However deep your
Knowledge of the scriptures,
it is no more than a strand of hair
in the vastness of space;
However important appears
your worldly experience,
it is but a drop of water in a deep ravine.

Words, heard or read, will only create images in your mind, but you are not a mental image. You are the power of perception and action behind and beyond the image.

The Truth is that Self is constant and un-intermittent Awareness. The object of enquiry is to find the true nature of the Self as Awareness. Let one practice enquiry so long as separateness is perceived. Once realization arises, there is no further need for enquiry. The question will also not arise. Can awareness ever think of questioning who is aware? Awareness remains pure and simple.

Don’t fight with what you take to be obstacles on your way. Just be interested in them, watch them, observe, enquire. Let anything happen - good or bad. But don’t let yourself be submerged by what happens. The mind must learn that beyond the moving mind there is the background of awareness, which does not change. The mind must come to know the true self and respect it and cease covering it up, like the moon which obscures the sun during solar eclipse. Just realize that nothing observable, or experienceable is you, or binds you. Take no notice of what is not yourself. You are aware anyhow, you need not try to be. What you need is to be aware of being aware. Be aware deliberately and consciously, broaden and deepen the field of awareness. You are always conscious of the mind, but you are not aware of yourself as being conscious.

As you become more aware of your awareness, the stories of the mind will start to lose their power. You will not be saddened by that, because the joy in you is incomparable. Know this, confirm this, deep within your own being. You are not creating, you are simply recognizing, discovering, what is timelessly present as your own Self.
So as you move from this place it will not matter whether eyes are closed or open. May this that you have tasted within yourself continue to flower, to blossom inside, and to drink your mind up and to keep it in harmony. Then wherever you go, a garden will grow there.

Love doesn't disappear at all,
but this word love is mistaken for lust.
Love is pure, it cannot change.
If you once fall in Love with your own Self,
there is no escape from it.
But when it comes and goes,
some person must be involved in it.
And that is called lust, not love.

You are this Moment, introduce yourself to This, do not attach your mind to any direction. No sadhana, no past, no future, not even emptiness of your heart, not even space. To be free forever introduce yourself to this Moment. This Moment is always this Moment, It will not change. It is Freedom, free from mind and concepts, and is your fundamental birthright. The best use of this Moment is to drown in It. Keep quiet, you are inside of the inside, do not dwell anywhere and make no effort. The concept of effort and practice is bondage. Just keep quiet, wherever you are, just keep Quiet.

How are you going to understand Truth?
To study and read holy scriptures is not enough.
Better than studying the holy scriptures, go and drown yourself in the Master's spit.
Your Heart has to be baptised in the spirit of God - in trust and openness. Then alone will intuitive and effortless knowledge awaken in you.

Grace sometimes touches life in such a way that one's whole being is set on fire in such a powerful way that one become filled with a confidence and urge to throw one's whole existence into the abyss of the Self.
You may find yourself saying, 'Remove everything.
Save nothing. Remove every falsehood from my being.'
Then everything is thrown aside, including one's self, the 'thrower'. Unexpectedly, one finds a sense of great unburdening, a completeness, peace and quiet joy within one's heart. Now there remains an effortless silence and stillness. And it’s not that there remains an 'I' that received this. There is nobody to receive.
Inside one's being, one quietly knows: ‘I am neither a “receiver” nor a “giver”. I am no one.' And yet, one finds oneself saying, 'Thank you, Beloved.'
