Ribhu Gita

Abide as That in which there are no Holy Scriptures or sacred books, no one who thinks, no objection or answer to it, no theory to be established, no theory to be rejected, nothing other than one Self - and be always happy, free from the least trace of thought.

Evil is the shadow of inattention. In the light of self-awareness it will wither and fall off.

With no expectation from the memory, point the mind towards it's Source. Stop thinking, and wait for the result from the other side.

Don't worry about the ego. Just know, you are not the ego. The most important thing is to discover that it is watched, which means: You cannot be it.
Therefore, don't identify with it. Then it starves from lack of attention and soon falls away.
Your victory is in recognizing that you are only the sense of presence, which announces itself through the feeling: I am. Let the 'I Am' - presence stay by itself consciously until it becomes effortless. That is when you feel or say 'I', it automatically means the presence or Being.

You say: “He lost his life” or “my life,” as if life were something that you can possess or lose. The truth is: you don’t have a life, You Are Life. The One Life, the one consciousness that pervades the entire universe and takes temporary form to experience itself as a stone or blade of grass, as an animal, a person, a star or a galaxy.

The Self is not an event. It is eternally unchanging.
However, hold in your heart the possibility that the recognition of it can happen, inside the heart at any moment. I say this so that your mind does not cheat you again by postponing your chance. Your coming and being here is your heart's response and resolve to dive within and secure the victory.
Go all the way through.
It's not somewhere else.
It's right here.
It is you.

When I say leave everything alone, leave the world alone, leave people alone, I'm speaking of mentally.
Do not sit at home or sit at the office and think about all the people who have hurt you, of all the things that are wrong someplace, drop it.
Keep the mind quiet.
When the mind starts to fight you.
When the mind starts to think about other things, you can say,
""All is Well"."
This will remind the mind that everything is okay just the way it is.
(silence)

Just make the statement "drop it!"
and forget about everything.
Do not think what you are thinking.
Do not allow yourself to have those thoughts.
When the thoughts come, when you feel futile say,
"Drop it!"
If you make the statement as an exclamation, just say,
"Drop it!"
Something will happen to you, you will feel a peace, you will feel radiance.
You will feel free.
•~•~•
But don't do like a mimsy-wimsy and say,
"Drop it".
(laughter) Say,
"Drop It!"
That means everything can go to hell.
The whole world, the whole universe, everything.
All my problems.
All my fears.
You have dropped it, it's finished, it's gone.
It's like what I did one Thursday night I said,
"Wake up!"
Same thing.
You are dropping all your theories, all of your knowledge, everything.
You drop it and let it go.
But do not analyze it.
Do not think about it.
Do not put it in certain category.

Devotion is love overflowing. Even when there is nobody, it is overflowing — to things, to tables, to chairs, to walls. It is just overflowing, it is not a question of to whom.

The little space within the heart is as great as the vast universe.
The heavens and the earth are there, and the sun and the moon and the stars.
Fire and lightning and winds are there, and all that now is and all that is not.

You can’t think about presence, and the mind can’t understand it. Understanding presence is being present.

Gamble everything for love, if you are a true human being. If not, leave this gathering. Half-heartedness doesn’t reach into majesty. You set out to find God, but then you keep stopping for long periods at mean spirited roadhouses. Don’t wait any longer.

Pema Chodron

…feelings like disappointment, embarrassment, irritation, resentment, anger, jealousy, and fear, instead of being bad news, are actually very clear moments that teach us where it is that we’re holding back. They teach us to perk up and lean in when we feel we’d rather collapse and back away. They’re like messengers that show us, with terrifying clarity, exactly where we’re stuck. This very moment is the perfect teacher, and, lucky for us, it’s with us wherever we are.

Again and again in my therapy groups I come across people who
aren’t there at all. Their daddy is there, their mummy is there, but
they’re not there. They never were there. Well, that’s absolutely, literally true. I could take you apart piece by piece and ask, “Now, this sentence, does it come from Daddy, Mummy, Grandma, Grandpa, whom”? Who’s living in you? It’s pretty horrifying when you come to know that. You think you are free, but there probably isn’t a gesture, a thought, an emotion, an attitude, a belief in you that isn’t coming from someone else. Isn’t that horrible? And you don’t know it. Talk about a mechanical life that was stamped into you. You feel pretty strongly about certain things, and you think it is you who are feeling strongly about them, but are you really? It’s going to take a lot of awareness for you to understand that perhaps this thing you call “I ” is simply a conglomeration of your past experiences, of your conditioning and programming.

Lao Tzu

When people are born they are gentle and soft.
At death they are hard and stiff.
When plants are alive they are soft and delicate.
When they die, they wither and dry up.
Therefore, the hard and stiff are followers of death.
The gentle and soft are the followers of life.

Truth does not simply mean abstaining from lying. You have to take truth as your very essence, as the foundation of your life. You should be prepared to renounce everything for the sake of truth. The world conducts itself in the fear of this truth and is always subservient to truth.

Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi

He who gives himself up to the Self that is God is the most excellent devotee. Giving one’s self up to God means remaining constantly in the Self without giving room for the rise of any thoughts other than the thought of the Self. Whatever burdens are thrown on God, He bears them. Since the supreme power of God makes all things move, why should we, without submitting ourselves to it, constantly worry ourselves with thoughts as to what should be done and how, and what should not be done and how not? We know that the train carries all loads, so after getting on it why should we carry our small luggage on our head to our discomfort, instead of putting it down in the train and feeling at ease?

Remember that your perception of the world is a reflection of your state of consciousness. You are not separate from it, and there is no objective world out there. Every moment, your consciousness creates the world that you inhabit.

Those who are not willing to give up all they have to find Him, will not know Him. Whoever would know God must be able to forsake all else for Him.

The ordinary man lives in the brain unaware of himself in the Heart. The enlightened one lives in the Heart. When he moves about and deals with people and things, he knows that what he sees is not separate from the one Supreme Reality which he realized in the Heart as his own Self.

The purpose of fear is to lead you to question and understand why you have that fear in the first place. As you examine your fears, you will learn that all your fears are somehow false and based on misunderstandings. There is no truth or reality to your fears. Many fears remain buried within you, and you never really examine them, so you remain at their mercy.

How to realise the Heart? There is no one who even for a trice fails to experience the Self. He is the Self. The Self is the Heart. When asked who you are, you place your hand on the right side of the chest and say `I am', thereby you unknowingly point out the Self. The Self is thus known.

When you have achieved a state of calmness and readiness, then you are ready to know, ready to understand in a deep way the dance between emptiness and appearance. Once you catch a glimpse of that dance, don’t hang on to it. Just let it go, like your first glimpse of essence love.
