Just allow yourself to be dissolved by Love. When there is no desire there is Love and Beauty. If you do desire, then only desire Peace, because what you think you will become: Water poured in the Ocean becomes the Ocean.

Before notions and creations you exist, so there are no words for That beyond words and language. Self doesn't need to understand Itself; Freedom is before the concept of freedom. You are what remains when the concept of "I," mind, and past disappear. Nothingness is no concept.

When one abides as the Self, some divine power takes charge of one’s life. All actions then take place spontaneously, and are performed very efficiently, without any mental effort or activity.

Who is journeying for freedom? The one who is already free. Just get rid of the concept, "I am the body, separate from the source." You return to what you always were.

You are the unchangeable Awareness in which all activity takes place.

There is no process to become silent. To disturb your mind you need process, but to stay silent there is no process. Stay in satsang, stay quiet, always have love with your own Self. You are not to win it by any attempt or effort. Simply stay quiet. If any thought rises, simply find out where it came from.

The Silence that I speak about is neither meditating nor sitting quiet. The Silence that I speak about has nothing to do with meditation or talking or not talking because then the mind is still running about here and there and everywhere. What I mean by Silence is that should be no thought rising from the mind. No thought rising from your mind is Silence.

Everyone has Buddha-nature in him, so don’t think that you are not worthy or fit enough to win freedom. Everyone is Buddha himself, but you don’t recognize your Buddha-nature because you want something else. You don’t love and honor your own Self. Your Self is Buddha. Yet, you don’t believe this because you are deeply attached to something else which is temporary, impermanent and false. All your attention is focused on the unreal. The genuine desire for freedom cannot rise in someone who is firmly established in ignorance. When you are in ignorance, Reality is kept hidden from you. Something else is projected within the mind which you take to be real. All this is nothing but ignorance.

[Student] What is the teaching of Poonjaji?
His only response was to start laughing. He laughed and laughed and laughed.
When the laughter finally subsided, again he was asked again “What is the teaching of Poonjaji?”[Poojaji] Laughing, laughing and dancing. When a person laughs, he has no mind, no thought, no problem, no suffering.

Practice is to remove the habit of practice. Then realize that freedom is already here. What is here right now needs no practice. Just see what the impediments are. What is the wall? The wall is imagining that you are not free. When you make an effort to be free, you accept the concept that you are not free, so you start from there. If you get rid of this concept that "I am not free," what will happen? This imagination is your own creation.

If you identify with what comes and goes, you will be unhappy. If you identify with what is permanent and always there, you are happiness itself.

Consciousness alone is, and nothing ever exists beyond this consciousness. Once having known it, you become one with consciousness. There is not subject and no object. There is no experience, and none experienced. This is called freedom from everything.

Mind can be the enemy and mind can also be the friend. It is the mind that binds and it is the mind that liberates. When the mind is attached to objects, which are transitory and impermanent, this is the mind that binds. This is the mind that is an enemy. But a mind that does not abide anywhere, on any object, is a mind that is your friend. This is the mind that liberates. It all depends on you, on what kind of company you keep in your mind.

This desire to be free has arisen in a very few people. Free in this life. This year. This month. Now. This desire will decide. Like a moth who falls in love with the flame and rushes toward it without any delay. No holding on or holding back along the way. How much time to become flame itself? Going toward the flame is the decision to be free -- going toward the Atman.

The Atman consumes you, giving you eternal existence, eternal consciousness, and eternal bliss. And nobody knows it. Everyone is searching outside through the senses. Whatever you see, wherever you see name and form, it is not true. These names and forms will never give you peace or love. Whatever you see, feel, or experience through pleasurable sense objects ultimately will leave you hungry.

So this is the decision and the discernment. With this discernment, this discrimination, a few will decide "I want to be free." They will find a teacher. The teacher is within you. The satguru is within you. Your desire for freedom is going toward that satguru, that Brahman

It is not difficult to be free. Freedom is within you. Love is within you and you are searching at the supermarket. This samsara is a supermarket dealing in commodities. Turn your back on it and you are free. Return home.

The sun is so big, much bigger than the earth, yet a single cloud can hide the sun. Clouds are thoughts. Likewise, the I-thought is hiding the Self. The I-thought is hiding peace, beauty, and love. How to remove the cloud? Inquire, and it will vanish when you inquire, because it is not real.

As you think, so it will become. This is the beauty of consciousness.

It is consciousness; it does not need to borrow material from anywhere else. "Let there be manifestation," and manifestation is there. Whatever you think is instantly there, within consciousness. Consciousness desiring for whatever it is within consciousness.

Nothing has ever happened. Nothing is ever going to happen. This is ultimate truth. Everything else is trouble of the mind.

When mind arises, trouble arises. You have to check at the arising point of the mind itself. You just stay there, where the mind is arising. Mind is a thought. 'I' arises, everything arises. Before 'I', people report that they don' t see anything, which is peace, beauty, love.

We have a conception that by practice we shall become free. Such a person is postponing his freedom. We become enlightened in this instant only and not as a result of ten years practice. Freedom is available now

Satsang and the inquiry into what you are will stir up vasanas to be washed away. Pure mind will then rest in its Source.Constantly uplift your mind to Self.Find out what is eternal in this Moment.Two cannot walk the razor's edge so you must remain one-pointed, you must believe in the Unbelievable, and you must face the Unknown. Do not turn back to the known.Stop complicating yourself: Be Quiet.

Do not allow any clinging to any physical form, not even your own self or your Guru. Then you are left alone with Freedom and this will not be a glimpse, it will be a permanent abiding in your own Self.

You do not have to depend on anything to be Free and it is not a glimpse! Freedom is always permanently residing in your Heart so don't get rid of all these aids which give a glimpse of bliss. Don't depend on anything and simply keep Quiet. Let your mind not cling to anything of the past and check its futurizing tendencies.
