What is the purpose of learning anything?
Only to be empty.
This is my teaching.
As far as the search for Truth is concerned, the only purpose of learning anything at all is to become empty again.
If you are merely collecting concepts, you will build up a lot of noise internally.
For only out of the emptiness itself, can spontaneous existence dance beautifully.
There, if a thing needs to be known, it will appear automatically out of that immensity in the appropriate time.
When it has expressed and exhausted its expression, it will return to emptiness unforced.
The wise know this.

It takes a lot of energy to be a person because it's not our truth. It takes no energy to be yourself.

Everything you accomplish as a human being is momentary, perishable. You come in this world with nothing, you leave with nothing. You can pursue many things and die without knowing who you are, but if you know who you are you can never die.

The mind is confused.

It is always trying to get, to understand,
to have the feeling "I know this, I understand this,
I know where I am going".

The mind is on a linear progressive projection.

Exposed to non-duality
there is nowhere for it to "go".
Nothing for it to "grasp".

Conditioned, the mind gets confused.
Countless concepts are picked up by the mind,
clinging to those untruths
You suffocate your spontaneity.

The mind does not understand simplicity.

Its nature is to make complex
what is already Natural.

What is there to keep up?
What is there to maintain?
What is there to practice?
What is there to remember?
What is there to be?
What matters so much?

You are not seeing the beauty of this Universe because you are putting so many herbs and spices of your own intentions upon the world in order to give it a taste that you want, that your mind want. Free from indentity, your eyes perceive in such silence, beauty and clarity without the judging mind, just pure as it is. Watch life with silent eyes.

Truth is the simplest thing
in the whole world because
it is already timelessly perfect
and unchanging.

It is not created
and it cannot be perfected.
It can only be discovered
as one's true Being.

It is the greatest miracle that a human being, borne with so much challenges, can rise like the lotus flower...it grows in the pond, in the mud pond, but it remains all it's life untouched...even if the rain falls heavily, and the waters rise...the lotus will still be always above the water...this is the nature of the spirit...

Enjoy what is enjoyable, we are ourselves joy, but without attachment, without dependency, without obsession, without need.

Don't take the attitude some feelings are welcome others not. Don't setup an 'immigration desk' for feelings and thoughts... say: 'anything can come, I don't mind.' Let anything come and hold on to you, but you hold on to nothing. This is freedom! Really, I am so serious about it. Because you can not chose your feelings. I said before in the same way you don't come to a restaurant carrying your own menu. Don't come to life with your own list of what you should have in your life. Be like this... be completely free! Let anything come and anything go... because nothing can take what you Are away. Be rooted in your own Being. Let them come, don't resist. Simply don't identify.

When I met Papaji, there was that impact, I knew I was Home. I felt his presence in the room and inside my heart. Even with eyes closed the presence of the master is felt, heard and seen. The master also speaks without words, works without labour, destroys without violence, liberates without struggle.

You must be in that place where inside and outside are in front of you. Outside and inside can be seen; where are you then? Who's the one who can see both? Where is the location of such one? There is no words for that place, nor directions.

The potential of being human is to discover that state within oneself which is beyond effort, which cannot be maintained or sustained. No effort is required for being.

Once that realization has occurred, one sees that oneself is not the moving part, not emotion, not time, not space, not body, not relationship, not contact, not separation, not mind, not senses, not anything that belongs to the interrelated play of opposites.

Knowing I am not that, leaving all that to dance; not striving to control what is by nature restless and moving, but realizing oneself as that unmoving being, then one is free. That alone is freedom. Freedom beyond the concept of freedom. Not someone being free; free of somebody-ness.

When you investigate the one who's interested in a life in the world, and you find out that...that one is just as much a perceived phenomenon as the 'world' is...somehow through this discovery the Self is revealed...where are your attachments in that moment of recognition?...where is your desire?...where are your fears?...where is your self-interest?...everything is blown away.
The senses are still functioning, the images of the world are still there...but the attachments and the fears are gone, because the one who would experience them disappeared...you are now the Self...This is what Bhagavan means when he says...
'When you are the Self, the world is not seen'...

Life - who lives it?
Knowledge - who seeks it?
Death - who fears it?
Paths - who follows them?
Enlightment - who attains it?
...
I do.

Now, find out what 'I' is.

You don't have to study so much.
The way in which mind studies
it accumulates information.

But you are the information-less Being.

Find That and be That!
And what needs to be known
arises spontaneously in you.

Questions appear real
for as long as you consider yourself
to be a person.

When you realize
you are the immutable Self,
all questions vanish.

Most human beings...many human beings, they don't like other human beings...because they reflect something which is inside themselves that they don't like...but they think no...no...no...it's in you...you carry this thing ...but if your empty of this trait that you see, that you don't like...it couldn't work like this, if your empty of it...then you don't see any judgement in it...When you are free of that judgement it ceases to appear, even external to you...you don't see it, or at least you look towards it with great compassion and understanding, because you know it's not intentional...We are not really ignorant by choice...it seems like something is hiding the seeing...so when we see someone, somehow triggers some discomfort within yourself...it's because somehow there is something there worth reflecting...Now I take you a step further than this...this which you are seeing in others and in yourself...this self that you find fault with, is only the idea you have of yourself...it is not the true Self...it is only the conditioned state...the idea, the learned self...the aquired self...the conditioned self...this is where all the bad smell is coming from...

Questioner: I can see that I am one with everything...

Mooji: You cannot see your unicity. Not phenomenally. You can somehow know in the most intimate intuitive sense that you are all-inclusive. That all knowledge, all knowingness, must be arising out of and within your own self. There is a knowingness which cannot be put down on paper. It is a felt knowingness.

I can see what I am not. I can see the objects that I am not. They are connected with me, they appear in me. They maybe appear to be outside of my own self, but I cannot say I am held in them, because I am here to observe them. So what can I be?

This discovery - not speculation - has to happen. Actually, finally, and ultimately - and ultimately does not mean "in time". It does not mean "eventually". It means at the center, at the core, which is most intimate, that within which even intimacy is known. Can that be known? Non-phenomenally there is knowingness that I am That. But be careful! Something is quick to say, "Yes, yes, this is what I am." And this evidence must be rejected, and the one who is giving this evidence must be rejected.

And there must be the discernment to know, "This is false", to know that it is the intellect that is saying this. Because when this truth is felt, you are struck into silence. Therefore I say, though you seek a conceptual answer, perhaps a response of a different kind will take place.

The Self isn't particularly spiritual. Don't try to live a spiritual life, just find out who You are!

Spirituality is only to transcend that attachment, and that belief, in the body-mind identity.

A starving man is not "interested" in food, nor is drowning man "interested" in air. For one longing for liberation, self-knowledge is not an interest, it's vital.

If you think you are a human being, you're merely a puppet in this show.... you are before all beginnings and after all endings.
