Don't try to hold onto your partner, or even onto the idea of relationship itself.
The relationships of those who allow each other space are the most beautiful of all.
As you are coming into your own strength, you make the best partner for the right person, because you intuitively know when space is needed for either of you.
In this way, you may grow and evolve through your own self awareness.
By having respect for each other's ways, even people of different religions, cultural backgrounds, or temperaments may find compatibility.
But there must first be the underlying openness.
If the relationship is not all closed up all locked in, if there is space, it can be very beautiful.
When people honour Truth, their discerning powers are sharpened, and they very quickly acknowledge what is true and discard what is untrue.
In a way, they become each other's gurus.
They don't put their egoic natures first.
They admit their mistakes, but they don't give in simply to avoid conflict.
They don't need to defend their feelings, nor do they need to make too much of them.
Rather, they just uphold Truth as it arises inside their hearts.
It is not difficult to love like this, and it is a beautiful way of being...

It was this story that papaji told me, I say like this, about one girl, and she was just about to get married, no, and she was, the next day, she’s getting married the next day, and she’s been planning everything for this wedding, because it’s a traditional place. And in this place, you don’t get to be with your beloved in any intimate way, until you are married.

So, tomorrow is the wedding, no, tomorrow is the wedding day, yes, and so today, she must make the final arrangement. And this girl lives in the forest. She lives in the forest and she’s, now today, final arrangements, she has a few appointments.

First I must go to the cake maker. And after the cake maker, I must see the dressmaker. After the dressmaker I must go and see the priest, to go through my vows.
And then finally at the end of the day I will see my beloved, and we’ll have a cup of tea together, look forward to tomorrow, and then tomorrow I’ll be, we’ll be in each other’s arms, oh wonderful! And she’s full of the joys of Spring. And she’s walking out in the forest to go to see the cake maker, first appointment on the list.
And after a few steps, right in front of her, steps a lion. Face to face, like this. Hungry lion also. And she can feel it’s breath….like this.

Then in that instant, you see, the cake maker’s appointment is gone. Then the dressmaker, not there. The priest, not there. Only the beloved, also not there.
In this moment, absolutely alone. No time, no future, no intention, no past, no identity.

So the master says, “welcome the lion on your path”. Because until then, you are planning a tomorrow you don’t have, a next week that nobody promise and all of this. And our minds are full of the noise of otherness. What will bring you to this instant this moment? When will you spend one moment to be just you? Not carrying some message for tomorrow or something. You see? And it’s the habit that all of us, we have it. And so we are full of noise, claustrophobic with noise. What will strip you back to that place? Beyond time and intention, you see.

How far are you from this place now? What’s left to do? What unfinished business is left to do? Before you can simply be your being, be yourself. Because the mind is not going to have a holiday. There is something that is not in the next moment, not in the past moment, also. Don’t look anywhere to find it. Even your very search to find it is already arising in it. We are missing the obvious. Don’t seek help from your mind…

Questioner: “I would like to know if you could guide me, as a mother.”

Moojibaba: “Your establishment in the Isness will provide all the guidance you will need. Because the guidance will arise spontaneously. It will be so beautiful, it will be so powerful that when you compare to guiding from the person (points to mind), you’ll say “no, no, no that’s just not working.” It will come spontaneously from inside you. Don’t panic, don’t be rushed, just be again from the Isness and you’ll hear it, you’ll understand what you’ll need to do. It will become clearer and clearer, it will become very joyful. You will be the best mother, in fact, because you have totally the support of the Self. You are one with it, you are in harmony with it… and you’ll find that if you don’t determine something like “ok I want to be this kind of..” No, just be present. Then you’re in natural time with the universe. And your responses being spontaneous and intuitive will always correspond to what is needed appropriately, to the needs of the moment. Yes. Ok maybe I cannot say ‘perfect’ because we are still speaking about phenominality, but as good as it can be, you see. And you will have the sense also inside that it is in alignment with the truest of Truth that is present within you.”

Just rest.
No time.
No intention.
No future.
No identity.
Just for a moment.
The world can do without you for a few moments.

Having come so far as to discover
all appearances to be unreal,
the final obstacle is the identity
of the seeker.
The seeker says, ‘I just want to be free,
I just want to be who I am.
That is all I want now, nothing else.’
He says, ‘Please remove the last obstacle,’
not knowing that the obstacle is he himself.
But all of this has only been
our dream-talking, dream-walking,
dream-seeking.
Now through the Master’s guidance
and grace, one must twist oneself
loose from this conditioned identity
as a seeker by recognising
that it too is observable,
and is therefore phenomenal.
Take time to be anchored in this
because this recognition is crucial.
The seeker remains dissatisfied and says,
‘You never answer my questions.’
The question and the questioner have been
answered but can the ‘seeker’ accept
an answer that reveals its unreality?
He says, ‘Wow, but without me,
how can I be found?’
And I say, Without ‘you’ how can you be lost?
When this is grasped, one has found
the master key to awakening.

"We were talking not long ago about one man whose wife was caring for homeless people, so to speak. And he was talking to one of these ‘homeless’ persons and he was saying, ‘my wife has done so much work for the homeless’ and so on.

And the homeless man says, ‘everybody is homeless.’

Everybody is homeless until you find God. Until you find Truth.

You could live in a palace with a hundred rooms, but you’re not home until you’re home here.

When you are at home inside your own Being, you are at home. Otherwise not.

Satsang is to reintroduce you to your home.

Your home and yourself are one, not two."

Without the intrusiveness of the personal mind, life is observed to be unfolding in a natural and harmonious way. Do not waste time merely wishing for things to get better. The whole world is doing this and so no one is really happy. We miss the true life. In fact, happiness arises when you stop chasing for something other than your own pure nature. And this happiness remains with you.
The universal tendency in human beings is to seek lasting happiness in the field of names and forms, a transient field. This is really a form of avoidance and a distraction from what is timelessly present and ever perfect within us, our divine nature and Self. Ignorance of the Truth is the main cause of misery.
Avoid expectations and especially be aware of the tendency to wait for 'next' as a promise to happiness, the next good feeling, the next adventure or invitation from the mind, in short, the next experience that, in fact, does quite the contrary: it pulls your attention away from pure presence, the seat of joy.
No one has ever experienced 'the future'. Reflect. It is all imagination. How to transform these tendencies Simply, begin by paying attention to the natural thought-free state, the pure sense of existence, the feeling ‘I Am’ that is naturally present in you. Shift the attention away from the mind-traffic and let it rest in impersonal awareness.
Keep doing this each time the attention goes out towards sense objects or obsessive self-interest. Self-attention is the beginning of real Self-discovery. It returns the attention time and again to its source, the one Self. Get used to staying in your natural and neutral state of being. It is a state of emptiness.
Do not be afraid of this. In fact, get increasingly used to being empty. This emptiness and joy are synonymous. They are one. This is really what is meant by the saying, ‘to enjoy one’s Self. It is a state of unfading contentment, wisdom, love and happiness.

The vastness which is seen by the mind is not the true vastness! The vastness in which the mind is seen that is the true vastness.

You are under Grace, so insights will spontaneously come,
revelations will come, recognition will come.
For many people when a powerful insight comes,
a powerful realisation or recognition comes—what happens?
It gets mixed with some ego, but this is not immediately seen.
You don’t recognise the poisoned cocktail
and you say, ‘Ah yes, I’ve got it.’
You swallow some ego, and the two will stay together.
The two will stay together unnoticed for a time.
You may feel that you are doing well,
you are speaking very well with people, but it won't go any further
because the weeds have grown up together with the flowers
and they start to choke the flower.

When an insight comes, be very careful.
Just be grateful inside your heart and say,
‘Thank you. Thank you.’
Don’t become anything or think you are special now,
and the true knowledge will blossom inside you.

If you mix ego with the realisation,
it will gradually siphon off your energy
and you don’t grow in power and wisdom
because arrogance claims it all.

In the beginning ego is very easy to slip in unnoticed.
This is due to your naivety and perhaps some arrogance.
These makes you blind. Once you are aware of it,
you begin to see the ego's work much more easily.
Once he gets exposed he cannot hide anymore.
Then you can easily see him coming,
‘Ah here comes ego again. He wants to take credit again.’
Where do we go with all this? Don’t turn it into a theatre!
Stay in the neutral state as Awareness itself.
That is all! Keep doing this and that spell will be broken.

The falling away of delusion

Sometimes people say they can smell freedom. They say they fall more and more into the embrace of That which is unspeakable. And I have to acknowledge that this is not merely an intellectual thought or conviction.

It is a deep inner thing; a felt experience in the Heart beyond words and thoughts, and yet I have to tell you that what you are falling into Is and was already here—unchangingly.

It is what you already are and no distance is involved. Has anyone ever heard of a falling where there was no distance? This is the fall where there is no distance. It's the greatest fall; the falling away of delusion.

Very few beings on this planet will refer to themselves as pure consciousness, as emptiness. Have you heard anyone speaking like this?
You cannot say things like this. You could get locked up for this, but even if they lock you up, they just think they’ve got you locked up.
You, the pure Self, cannot be locked up at all.
What you find is that the whole world is inside the jail and you are out!
They are in the prison of egoic identity feeling sorry for you being in the ‘prison’ of their imagination, but actually, you are free.
Isn’t it funny?

Moojibaba’s Words Before Entering His Silent Retreat:
Many years ago, when these profound changes began taking place in my life, I suddenly found myself spending a lot of time on my own. I had the opportunity, in those days, to just sit by myself in undisturbed peace and silence. It was not my intention or decision to do this. I just went along with what felt right inside my heart and being. It all felt as though God had arranged it like this. Quite a long time passed in silent introspection and self-awareness. Little attention was left for anything else. I lived in a kind of timeless state cocooned inside this silent, blessed feeling of being.
Over 25 years have passed since, and I realise I have not taken any time to just sit by myself. I know that it was absorption in the power and continuous flow of grace from the Supreme Being that makes all this possible here and now. This time of deep immersion in the Self made all these years of travelling around the world sharing Satsang possible. It is still here today in service to your own awakening. I have shared with some of you that an urge has been steadily arising within to rest again inside my own heart-retreat. I do not have any grand ideas or projections about the fruits it will yield.
Here I am extending this invitation to you, my Sangha, to enter into your own inner retreat over this coming month or so. Most of you, of course, have activities and work that must continue, but at the same time I encourage you to be in this inner state and to stay very conscious of the Self even while the outer activities go on. Spend time really sitting and imbibing what I have pointed to as your true nature and position as the unchanging, unmoving awareness. It is not difficult. The pointing is very straightforward, very clean, very clear, but you need to sit with it and not be impatient. And watch…not only the things which keep coming and going but That which does not come and go—the awareness Self. Be one with That for it is not separate from you. Notice that your work and daily activities are spontaneously flowing even better as you keep your mind inside your heart.
This invitation is for all who seek the Truth and are in the hearing of this, wherever you are. Take this chance to keep your attention inside the heart of being. Each time the mind drifts away bring it back to silent, formless awareness. Inside, you must remain, know and confirm yourself as the unmoving One. And this harmony between the unmanifest and the manifest as one integral wholeness will reveal itself as your fundamental nature. Gradually, pure understanding will transmute into final awakening.
Nothing learnt in this world stays with you profoundly if it only stays in your mind as concepts. You must drink my words and pointers in deeply. It is like when you are in love, you welcome and embrace love totally inside so it becomes one with your being. This falling in love-ness, this internalising of the attention, is a very natural thing. It is not a wasteful movement. It is not a personal attainment. It is a universal impulse expanding and expressing itself as blessedness and love to the world.
Being aware of the Self compels and propels us out of the ignorant role and state of personhood and into Universal Consciousness. So while daily life unfolds, I am encouraging you to keep your attention immersed in the source which is your true Self.
Finally, please give this your full-hearted attention: continue growing in your love, respect and service to one another. It is a very mature and illumined Sangha that learns from and inspires each other towards full awakening to the timeless Truth. A true Sangha supports and encourages this truthfulness and integrity to face what is true and what is false without sacrificing the love, harmony and deep respect that are the perfume of the One Self. Without love, there is no Sangha and no real life. I do not know if there is anywhere else on this planet where love, wisdom and Truth are so profoundly alive and venerated as here inside the Sahaja-Heart.
Beloved ones, don’t waste your life pursuing the ephemeral. Transcend ego. Don’t miss your chance.
Timeless love

This effortless stillness
that is your ocean Being,
this great peace and infinite silence,
is just Here.
It is your perfume.
This love, this spaciousness, this contentment,
simply emanates out of you.
But your true Self, this ineffable flower,
no one can find.
It has neither form nor shape.
Neither size, weight, nor colour.
It is ageless—timeless.
And yet, without It,
none of this could be.

You can be the poorest man in terms of material wealth and yet be a champion of the spirit in this life.

In ancient times, it is said, even kings and emperors would bow down at the feet of an illiterate sage.

Illiterate means unlearned, uneducated.

Now, a king doesn't bow down to anybody except God, so he must be at least wise enough to know whose feet he is bowing down to, or be compelled by some power to put his head at the sage's feet.

Human beings search for greatness based upon human concepts, conditioning and achievements.

A sage may have nothing. He is empty, but the force of his mere presence alone will draw those to him who have even a spark of attraction to the Supreme.

The sage doesn't point you to university—he pulls you into the Universal Heart.

Enough dream...enough dreaming...

Whatever comes, do not push away, whatever goes, do not grieve. Everything appears just like clouds floating by; they just come and go. Stay only as the unmoving Awareness. Awareness and Truth are one. Acclimatize yourself to Home. Acclimatize the mind to the Heart. The mind's true home is the Heart. Not merely the emotional heart but the mind's Source itself. Heart is the guru of the mind. Mind is the devotee of the Heart. That is the true relationship.

To experience life with the love of Jesus Christ...With the peace of Ramana Maharshi...With the wisdom of Shiva...With the sweetness of Rumi...all of them have their Home in the Heart...they have found That!...and now it's our turn. Now, our generation must find also. May each one know, you cannot separate from what you cannot leave...This pain is Just a Dream...it has just been a dream...Enough dream...enough dreaming...

Arrogance is the most prevalent state of disgrace in the human world. As soon as we feel some inner opening, we begin strutting about like some pigeon. As soon as we receive some insights, we start thinking we are something special, whereas the truth is we are Nothing.

I can never be tired of you.
I can only be tired of you while you indulge the notion of being a person.
Sometimes I get impatient with you.
Why are you still wallowing in this mess?
Come out of this.
As soon as you come out then all the rubbish begins to fall away fast.
First you go uphill with your ego, and then you start going downhill and everything is coming out. First, building up, building up, more and more stuff… getting stuffed, constipated with concepts… and then? BIG laxative, full diarrhoea. Then freedom. Every thought is coming out. You are so happy, so light. You don’t know what to do with yourself. You are weightless, completely weightless.
Now let it be your quiet understanding and live from that place.

Whatever is born out of time,
you need not be concerned about.
Let life take care of that. Let life take care of life.
Keep quiet and let your mind rest inside your heart.
Don't worry. Right now belongs only to now.
There are no demands, requirements or conditions.
You are simply here. As you confirm this
and pay attention to this simple fact,
the whole world becomes a harmony
right in front of you.

Never think of yourself as sick.
It’s the wrong diagnosis.
Body may be sick.
Μind can be sick.
But You, the Self, can never be sick.
You can never be harmed or injured.
And here in Satsang,
I am directly showing you this
so that you will come to know it,
not just believe it.
And body can be healed.
Mind can come back to its natural state.
But You can never be sick.
You are the formless and ever-perfect Self.
