It is impossible to attain Liberation whilst holding onto identity.

Be nobody. When you are somebody there are so many duties that even to be yourself is such a hassle.
When you are nobody, you escape from every trap.
It is immediate freedom!

Regarding Self as merely a ‘person’ is an insult to the Unlimited Consciousness one is.

It is not you that comes and goes or fades.
It is the mind that comes and goes and passes away. Understand, know and be in your true position as the uninvolved witness of all phenomena.

You say you want to get rid of the noise,
but you and the noise go together.
You have to be you without ‘you’ and all noise will stop.
The real You is the formless witness within.
The person, the noisy one, is only imagined.

Do you really want to erase all your deluded beliefs, memories, stories, tendencies and identities one by one, or would you prefer to find the factory where they are produced, and blow the whole thing up? I say this because right now, I don’t have time for all this tiny pruning.
You hold on to your little nail clipper, but I am giving you a great chainsaw to bring down this old tree of suffering.
This chainsaw is self-inquiry.
This is your good fortune.

You say you try to slow down the mind enough so you can stay in the Self, but there is no need to ‘slow down the mind’ for this. The mind has never been able to stay in the Self by effort. This is all due to much misunderstanding.
Please listen: to stay in something is an effort.
It requires a dedication and a skill.
It would require full time commitment, devotion, determination, single-mindedness. Even the Buddha could not do it. People have spent many years naked in caves trying to convert or merge the mind inside the heart, and have failed. They may have achieved something they did not have before, like peace or concentration or even joy, but they retain their identity as a seeker or practitioner—an entity who attains something. They may become a peaceful person, but there is a duality there. They must Be the peace itself.
The Self cannot be reached or owned by anyone. It can only be discovered and recognised as the effortless and natural source of all which Is and appears.
How do you ask something as fickle as the mind to stay in something as absolute as the Self?
Isn’t it all a little ridiculous?

Your own being created me in your life
to remind you of who you truly are.
Don’t depend on me, use me.

What chance is there to discover the final Truth?
Here, with me, every chance, because I don’t accept you in the way you present yourself. This self-portrait I disregard. It is a poor work of art or heart.
You want to be here as Miss and Mr Sannyasin, Miss and Mr Hormone, Miss and Mr Spiritual, Miss and Mr Special, Miss and Mr Chosen, Miss and Mr Yogi…
I am sorry… not here. I have no space for you.
Try again another time.
When you run out of titles, come back.
But who will take this risk?

Who is the mind actually speaking to?...you assume it is to you, the Self...but is it only to your self-image, the ego which you imagine is your true self....but are you ready and willing to look at this?...There is a reluctance to question this, because it feels like gambling with everything you believe you have and are....we want to feel ok, but not k.o....you want to feel ‘okay’ with your projections rather than having them ‘knocked out!’...My encouragement to you is to stop protecting that which is suffocating your true freedom...

There is a reluctance to question this, because it feels like gambling with everything you believe you have and are. We want to feel ok, but not k.o.

There are no great persons. Alexander the Great is a myth.
Where is his greatness now?
I don’t hear of anyone having a relationship with Alexander the Great in the heart but there was one man who came riding on a donkey who, thousands of years later, no one can forget.

We should really find out what the difference is…

" Satsang amounts to the peeling away of this illusory I...the peeling away of this cataract of illusory identity...you are here all the time...you're not going to find something new here...you are going to find something which pre-dates ancient...timeless you see...where in you are these words assimilated?...what understands them, but knows them?...what knows what they are pointing to?...who can answer this kind of question?...the mind cannot answer it!...so deep is the drug of identification with the limitations, that these words find little soil to grow in, amongst millions of beings...once you take yourself to be a particular entity, in your own private journey towards some whatever it is that you project or imagine liberation to be...once you have taken on this identity...the road seems endless...Once you have looked in the way that you have been shown...that whatever destination you reach...who will know and recognize this destination?...is it not the same one who is here now?...if you have been shown the highest revelation...the highest gift...the highest manifestation...who will determine whether that is satisfactory or not...is it not the same one who is here now?...how can anything that is presented to you going to satisfy you, when you are earlier than that!...how long does it take to recognize these words in your heart?...you have not been asked to use your imagination or to create...nothing is being asked of you...you may look and feel the resistance that comes up in the mind...because mind itself...The Author of your own false identity feels threatened by the possibility of being exposed, in the light of this introspection you see!...and wants to run...and depending on how much you have tied yourself in relationship to the mind...will determine weather you sit here or you run with the mind...that's it!!...what are you doing?...what Mantra are you reciting?...what pilgrimage are you being sent on?...what spiritual gymnastics must you perform?...you are asked to look to examine and to be open about it...and to look at your own conceptual attachments and investments, because they are the very things that keep you feeling separate, and you are shown that right now the possibility of this discovery is here and now...you are not being offered awakening in installments...it's being pointed to directly you see!!...that which cannot be made perfect or imperfect which simply IS..."

I would not encourage anybody to try to study life,
because you can never get it.
No one can even begin to comprehend a moment of its magnificence,
its mystery, its sheer glory.
You have to fall fully in Love with the very heart of existence
and then its essence is miraculously revealed to you somehow
– a kind of an intuitive knowing happens out of this love.

But to study life doesn’t work,
because your attitude and even you,
the student, is phenomenal.

You have to first fall inside yourself until
there is no longer ‘you’ and ‘life’
—there is only Life.

There is no ‘person’ living life.
There is just Life expressing itself in,
as and through this form called a person,
watched simultaneously in pure consciousness.

How funny that the simplest of teachings seems to be the most difficult.
This is like a circus of concepts.
We fight, creating devils out of nowhere,
in order to defend our identity—sheer ignorance.

Now I’ve said it and now I want to see it alive in you.
I want to see it germinate inside your heart.
It must flower, bear fruit and give shade. That’s it.

Your true nature is no distance from you.
Just recognize what is always here, unconditioned and untouched.
From the standpoint of human conditioning, there seems to be a journey.
But from the position of consciousness, this makes no sense at all.
Change from the position of personhood to that of presence otherwise you will miss what I am saying. When, inside your heart, you understand yourself to be consciousness, my words will be very easily understood and assimilated,
and delusion will flee

Don’t know anything at all.
Meet everything in the moment as it arises.
Meet life like this and you are on the road to true and pure existence—everlasting joy and contentment.
Then your life is not a series of events, but more a quality of being.
Start with being empty before you make your first step.
Then, when you make your first step,
see if you leave this beautiful emptiness or not.
When you are so grounded in and as the source, it won’t matter if you make one, ten or a hundred steps—in any direction, they will still be steps made in the silence of being.
The one who follows my advice will find something truly worth discovering:
Discovering yourself as you truly are is discovering life as It truly Is.

Through devotion, surrender and love you become eternal.
Through self-knowledge and wisdom you become timeless.
Contemplate this.

Don’t talk so much about your apparent troubles or how your mind is.
That is feeding the mind.
Talk only economically to get to the point.
If we talk too much, at some point we are only telling lies.

We are believing so many things...I don't think any other creature on the planet speak as much stupidness as human beings...it is true!!...first of all we don't know what we are!!...you think you are flesh and blood and thought...and you don't realize that flesh and blood and thought and movement and All of these things, are just manifestations occurring in You...you are the perceiver of them and therefore if you can perceive or observe something, you cannot be that thing!!...exclusively you cannot be this thing!!...it is a phenomenon appearing in You!!...who are you who witness it...this is the question I am asking...this is a more alive question...but this is a direct and immediate question...
You are there!!...you're seeing everything...all the languages all the ideas...projection...time...past...present...future...relationship...imagination...
philosophy...religion...belief...disbelief...all of these things are in front of You...you know them because you are prior to them...you existed before they came...you are the knower of knowledge and the knower also of ignorance...Who could you be?...reflect on this!!...that which sees everything.
I've been saying...even some thoughts, some sensations are so subtle, they cannot be labelled...they have no concepts to carry them...Still they are in front of You...You perceive them...Who can you be???...

Some beings have had enough of experiencing.
Their urge for freedom is very strong now.
That company I find most alive.
At some point, many relationships become worn out and tired. They mostly begin to fall away. Do not grieve.
Do you honestly want to find those old conversations interesting again?
A voice within says: Come fully inside. Come lay down here in the silence of Being.
If there is a sadness, it will be to spend our life in separation from our inmost being.

Looking within for what is truly real, one ultimately finds oneself witnessing from the place of the Real.
And in the light of this Real, the unreal vanishes.

Oh ego, none of your claims are true.
Keep quiet with a heart of devotion to the Real,
and the all-encompassing Self
will be spontaneously known.

We carry and hold on to a lot of concepts, a lot of mental garbage. We want to be free but we want to be free with our garbage. We want to preserve our identity at all cost because we believe identity to be what we are. And we are afraid that to find the Truth means to lose our existence, to lose consciousness. But you are only going to lose your non-existence, your un-truth. This is the most auspicious and most beautiful discovery. When you understand your true nature then this entire dream is undone
