When a fish is dying it is more active and so mind becomes very active in the last few minutes like a fish flopping out of the water. This fish has troubled you for so long so now feast on it. All you can do is not think and not try.

Look within,
There is no difference between yourself, Self and Guru.
You are always Free.
There is no teacher, there is no student, there is no teaching.

There is a never-ending cycle of birth and death. What is birth and what is death? They are desire. This never-ending cycle is fueled by desire, the desire to enjoy sense objects in a body. When desire ceases, this cycle also ceases. This apparently endless cycle of birth and death ends with the cessation of desire. It is not only birth and death that end. When desire ceases, the universe itself ceases. It is as if it never existed. That's how it is.

Meditation is to effortlessly turn the mind toward that energy which energizes mind.

Stillness of mind comes from giving up all attachments except that attachment to Self.

Only when you stop the projecting will you be happy. When the projection is finished then only the screen is left. This screen is the same before, during, and after the projections. When mind stops there is no projection, this is the blissful state.

The objects of the inner dialogues are only from the past and so this chatter must be stopped, it must be controlled. This dialogue is only memory and it has to be controlled. This self-control is with small ‘s’ and refers to controlling the mind, the thoughts of the mind. Self control is when your mind is not leaking anything perishable, when your mind touches nothing that fades. No clinging to the past, no thoughts, no expectations for any future. Keeping mind between past and future is mind control and this is your face. This is not so easy. People have been trying to do this for so long. Five thousand years ago Arjuna asked Krishna how to control the mind which is as difficult to grasp as air. Krishna said: “By Abhyasa, practice, and Vairagya, non-attachment, you will control the mind. Vairagya is being non-attached to objects. Abhyasa is bringing the mind back from its objects and establishing it in me”. So sit quiet and watch the mind. It will want to go and enjoy the past experiences and enjoyments. Bring it back. If you are aware of the thief it will not steal from you, but if you are not aware then the thief will not let you be happy. It will loot the property of peace. This happens everyday and we enjoy it. We actually make friends with the snake. Keep after this inner dialogue and it will stop, if you have strong determination. All these objects of the mind are only projections.

Troubles only arise with thoughts, as the whole world arises only from thoughts. Why get yourself in all of this trouble? Simply do not think. When you don't think you don't need to do anything else. This is quite enough. And don't make any effort to not think.

In Freedom, In Reality,
there is no process or way or path,
no here, no there,
no this, no that,
no 'me', no 'you',
no concepts, no name, no form,
no mind, no bondage, no duality.

Nothing has happened.
Nothing is happening.
Nothing ever will happen.

Only Self Is.

Everyone is God, but we do not see it unless we see God within ourselves. If you first see God in yourself you will see him in the animals, birds, and rocks.

God is not hiding!
When you do not see God
it is only because you are looking elsewhere.
So you must absolutely see God and nothing else.
Then it is the God that is looking through your eyes.

Surrender to God and keep Quiet and he will take your responsibilities. As long as you take your responsibilities on your own head, God doesn't take care and it only seems that he is hiding

Just be quiet. This quiet does not involve talking or not talking. It does not involve any doing whatsoever. Just let the mind fall into silence. This is enough.

When you meditate, the ego rises and you become the meditator. In this process, you objectify Reality, which is actually who you truly are. So, the best meditation is to simply keep quiet here. Don't follow any thought and don't activate the mind. This is true meditation. Knowing that you are meditating is not true meditation. When you keep quiet here, there is no meditator. There is nothing to achieve in the future because everything is already here. The meditator rises from here. When you keep quiet, there is no meditator, no meditation and no object of meditation. This is existence-consciousness-bliss itself. It is in this instant, in this space. It is who you are, desireless, perfect Self. In the twinkling of an eye you are free!

The Ocean cannot stay alone
and so the notion of wave is created.
When waves rise Ocean loses nothing
and when waves fall Ocean gains nothing.
Samsara, the illusion, Maya, the play,
is the wave on the Ocean of Nirvana.
Waves are not separate from the Ocean,
rays are not separate from the Sun,
You are not separate from
Existence-Consciousness-Bliss.
This is a reflection of That.

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.

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.

To arrive into egolessness, to Self, to light, you have fastened yourself with a rope, with the ego, by making an effort. This rope, the ego, will pull you back.

Now, don't tie. No effort and no rope. Then enter into this effortlessness. It is already there! There is no entrance, and no exit either! Exit and entrance are the past and future. So I say, break the link with this past and future. And how will you come out? Everything is truth. Who will call you back?

There is no ego. Ego has been dumped on you by someone else. Your parents, society, the church. That's all. There is no ego. Egolessness, freedom, is your birthright. It is your inheritance of happiness. That is why you seek it. Everything that you do, you do for happiness, peace of mind, and love.

Where did you get this concept, first of all? You have tasted happiness once, and so you want it again. But you are searching in places where happiness is not: in objects, in sense pleasures.

They call It peace. They call It happiness. They call It love. They call It beauty. Still, It is untouched. It is much more beyond this. Whosoever has gone here has merged into It. No communication. No mind. No intellect. No senses. And this is the happiness. When these things cease, then only will you see the face of happiness.
