Don't expect anything from anybody,
this is also a great freedom.

Don't expect things to be different or people to be in service to you or your own life or projections.

Feel gradually that natural feeling of detachment.

Dont watch constantly with the eyes of relationship and past and so on.

Stay faithful to your own discovery,
leave the rest and life will take care of it.

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.

Remaining as awareness,
delusions fall away and mind returns to
its natural abode, the Heart.
Do not fight any tendency.
Simply stay as the detached witness
who is ever present and without name or form.
It has no story.
Follow this advice. It works.

Don't be so weak...don't give in to fickle tendancies...hold your ground...there is no need to try and measure yourself or your progress...simply carry on being here, being present, being open...not everything rests upon your intellect, or your intellectual capacity...for some of you perhaps it may be a struggle to investigate...your not on your own...when I say your not on your own, I mean that whatever brought you here...inspired you...encouraged your being and your body to be here, will continue doing its work...it's important to trust!!...in my heart I have not left one single one out...I've ruled no one out...no one is exempt from this opportunity...

The light of one human being who discovers the Truth has been lighting the human kingdom for thousands of years.
Such is the power of a human being who realizes the Truth of who they are.
The whole human specie is in a difficulty because of ignorance and arrogance.
Who is responsible for it?
Consciousness is playing this game.
Human beings are the expression of Consciousness, the effects of Consciousness.
When you know who you are, you know that all is That...when you know that all is That, your actions come from your heart.
All these efforts cannot change the world, because the human ego is arrogant and selfish, what is great about the human being is their Spirit....is that we are the Timeless portraying itself as time and change.
The world is not a dark painting, it's still a beautiful painting, and the picture changes according to your present light.
As you grow more aware of the Truth, you will see the glory of the universe and of God inside everything you see.

Let the world call you lazy for not running about like a frightened ghost. Just be quiet inside yourself. Don't bother about knowing how things should be and simply begin observing without prejudice, projections or desires. Notice how life flows of its own accord. Nothing here is a chaos, but a harmony. You are already inside this flow.

What you are trying to make happen
has never happened.
It is the one thing that never happens.
Everything else is happening,
but this thing is not happening,
but everybody is trying to make it happen.
All these attempts to make it happen
are being watched in That which doesn't happen
—and you are That.
So only the recognition needs to happen, not you.
The recognition of That
which is timelessly present and unchanging.
That is our glory—that we cannot happen,
we can only be.

Everything you see, comes to pass.
Know that you are not that.
All things that are heard, come to pass.
Know that you are not that.
All things that are touched, come to pass.
Know that you are not that.
All things that are tasted, come to pass.
Know that you are not that.
All things that are thought of, come to pass.
Know that you are not that.
All things that are imagined, come to pass.
Know that you are not that.
All things that are learned, come to pass.
Know that you are not that.
All that is manifest, come to pass.
Know that you are not that.
All things of the mind come to pass.
Know that you are not that.
That which does not come to pass,
but inside which all phenomena come to pass,
know That—to be your Self.

Spirituality is only to wake up and to come back to your pre-birth awareness. Sometimes the questions are more powerful than the answers because they create opening and space for you to look.
To overcome that limitation and that conditioning is the greatest transcendence, actually. You get burnt up first, then around you auspicious fires will start.

The light within us is there as a potential.
The darkness within us is there as a potential.
Beyond light and darkness is the Reality that we are.
That dark sided potential can only intimidate
the idea you have of who you are.
It cannot infest or affect your true Self.
What you are cannot be possessed;
what you think you are could be,
for that is weak, not stable.
This is where we become psychologically weak.
This is where fear lives, where resistance thrives,
where insecurity, pride and arrogance sprout from.

These forces will play in the aspect of consciousness
that is its self-portrait as a person.

As your mind continues expanding
beyond the limited, psychological self
back into the brightness of the true Self
—in this crossing over
—the fiercest resistance will likely come.
Strange as it may seem, it is just after
a bright and beautiful insight awakens within
that our deepest fears manifest.

In the moment, you may forget
these are merely clouds passing:
but observe that your Self,
the witness of all,
is unmoving.

The most important thing in life
is to wake up to who you truly are.
You are not merely a personal being.
You are the living spirit of Truth.

What you are is magnificent;
what we believe we are is so limited.
We don’t need to carry on this personal story.
It is not contributing to the beauty and freedom of your life.
Don’t be enslaved by the conditioned or indoctrinated mind.
It wants you to make anniversaries out of your pain—forget about it.
You don’t have to be so loyal, so faithful
to any tendency that causes suffering.
Often we ruminate over the past, not in order to be free,
but to strengthen the sense of ‘me’.
We say we can’t change the past, but yes you can!
Did you perceive it right in the first place?
Who is to say your perception is a fact?
It would be a futile and unending task
to search for the innumerable strands that have contributed
to the person you take yourself to be; mostly they are untraceable.
Better just drop the whole thing
and thus remain empty of conceptual debris.
Be fresh every moment.
Be as fresh as consciousness—history-less and happy.

From just one candle, you can light a million candles without putting strain on the first candle. From one awakened being, you can set light into a million souls, so powerful is the light.
If you go into a room full of light, but outside is darkness, and you open the curtain, that darkness won't come in. But if you go into a room which is dark and you open up a little tiny bit of a curtain, it will fill the whole room with light. Such is the power of the light.
We are this light and we must discover this.

I was kissed from inside and that totally devastated me in the most beautiful way. I couldn't carry on with my life the way it was before. It just started to change and it is still changing, but something inside remains unchanging. I found what is not changing and also what is changing therefore, I can enjoy now. This is what causes a smile to happen that is not just with my lips. It happens with my whole being. Joy is that smile.

When not being your Self becomes far too painful,
Self-discovery becomes vital.
It seems we can live in exile
from our own true nature for a while.
It is the play of life after all.
Actually, we cannot do it.
We can only dream it, or believe it into existence
and suffer our own projection.
Such exile would be akin to saying
that space has forgotten itself
and imagines that it is only the wind.
Space imagining itself to be blowing
when actually it is only the wind that is blowing
—what delusion.
When the wind is not blowing,
does space ‘become’ space again?
Is space not always unchanging?
Wind or no wind, what concern is that to space?
Likewise, you are only a person
when you imagine you are a person.
When you cease believing you are a person,
there is no person and no confusion.
When the wind is not blowing,
who speaks of the wind?
You are none of this, O Divine Awareness.

When you find your Guru, it should not be a long relationship. I wonder if you understand that. A Guru is not some talisman that you keep. It means that it will not be a long relationship. .., Suppose you bring a hungry lion (like we say); you bring one deer in front of hungry lion. Oh, dear. Who is going to remain? You can guess.

So, like this; the relationship should be like that. Not that 'Oh, yes, now I have someone to tell me and to show me'. No, no. It is to merge the 'person' into its own Source, its own Beingness. That's the Guru, to merge the 'person' into its own Beingness or to transcend the personal idea of self.

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.

When your attention turns towards your Self, instantly, the very turning is observed. Attention itself is a quality of the mind, and it is also being observed. This ‘turning towards’ is what you believe you are - an entity that does something and gets something in return. It is rarely questioned.

A feeling of joy is present when you remember and turn within. Again, I stress: There is that awareness in which the turning or non-turning of attention is witnessed. The movement of ‘I’ in its momentary-ness does not make any difference, because it is seen phenomenally and clearly does not affect the pure awareness in which it appears. When this understanding is grasped, all is done - well done! By whom is it grasped? By the un-nameable! When this insight implodes, the ‘somebody’ who apparently grasped it vanishes inside the ineffable.

If you are listening earnestly, what you need to hear you have already heard

Now you must chew and digest the food in your mouth

Be with it, be with it

It’s not so much you have to do

Stay with it, trust my word

Prove them within yourself if they support your seeing or not

You don’t have to keep knocking from door to door and jumping about

Simply stay here

You don’t have to stir up your mind about these things

You have come, through The Invitation, to a place of real silence and stillness

The mind wants you to put your hand up to keep asking questions which you have far left behind, and you believe they are still important

Buy if you put your attention to what you have discovered, it is beyond all the questions you can ask right now

So just honour that seeing

Be with it, be with it

Sometimes, someone would come to a place of deep and profound insight, a revelation in consciousness, and I would say to them like this also "go home, get inside your sleeping bag, zip yourself in, and don’t come out, marinate, be like the jacket potato, marinate in this, don’t go anywhere, don’t call any friends or nothing, just stay with it, stay with it"

There is immense Joy

Just stay with it, stay with it, stay with it

At the right time, it will throw you out the bag, and then you can go about your business

Stay with it

Learn to value the things which are truly of value

Come to see them, that which serves your life, serves your search for Truth and put your attention there…

That is wisdom

That is using your life well

That is the best product of the vital force

In what way will this (self-realization) contribute to your life?

Well in uncountable ways, and yet you know what, you won’t mind so much

The things that you were longing for “oh I really want, I really want” may not seem so important anymore

It’s not so much about what I want, but what I am

It’s not about where I am going, but what I am

And this is why I am not speaking about the future

I am the unbroken now, I have no future, therefore I am supremely happy

The real self neither doubts nor believes. But the dynamic self, the child of the pure self, must grow in trust, appreciation, humility, and love. That's what somehow, in the game, converts that very limited state into the all-possible...

The mind is apparently making someone's life hell
and you call this someone ‘you’.
And this ‘you’ who is suffering from the mind
is now trying to go beyond the mind.
It says, ‘Help me, Mooji, to make this leap.’
But isn't 'making a leap' just another thought arising
in the Awareness which is already here beyond the mind?
Don't miss or edit my pointing.
Be aware of that impersonal field
which is unaffected by the mind-play.
Be one with this Awareness space,
for right here is where all the mind's cunning plays
are exposed as mere imagination.
You will find yourself here as the formless witness.
Feel the pure space of sacred Presence.
Confirm and honour your discovery. Just be here.
Now tell me: can you suffer, in any way, being one with This?
Can It, your true Self, be affected by thoughts?
Are there two separate things here,
such as yourself and Awareness?
You are in the perfect place to answer these questions.
Do not be distracted. Complete your inquiry.
Set your heart free. Here is the Sage's abode and Self.

I am not a speaker nor a preacher. I have no mission to change the world. I have no original words or teaching to give anyone. I reflect only what I've seen and heard - most ordinary, very common. I have no fascination for fresh ideas and activity. All enthusiasm for worldly endeavours and strivings have all but gone. For me, thoughts, words and deeds - the activities of life, are merely the utensils for serving out the 'prasad' of the Being-ness.

The mind wants to take credit for Awakening. It wants to turn it into an achievement. By being the achiever of enlightenment it retains its identity, pride, separation and deceitfulness.
Find that which is not a doer, not an achiever.
Find That which simply Is.
