Time is death. Who waits, dies. Life is NOW only. Do not talk to me about past and future - they exist only in your mind.

There is no need of a way out! Don't you see that a way out is also part of the dream? All you have to do is see the dream as dream..Wherever it leads you, it will be a dream. The very idea of going beyond the dream is illusory. Why go anywhere?Just realize that you are dreaming a dream you called the world and stop l...ooking for ways out. The dream is not your problem. Your problem is that you like one part of the dream and not another. Love all, or none of it, and stop complaining. When you have seen the dream as a dream, you have done all that needs to be done.

Nothing compels. You are what you believe yourself to be. Stop believing. Leave it all behind you. Forget it. Go forth, unburdened with ideas and beliefs.

All knowledge flows from you, as all being and all joy. Realise that you are the eternal source and accept all as your own. Such acceptance is true love.

The universe is but a partial manifestation of your limitless capacity to become.

You know you
are sitting here; you know you are, do you require any special effort
to hold on to that ‘you are’? You know you are; abide only in that. The
‘I am’ principle without words, that itself is the God of all
‘Ishwaras’.

Moods
are in the mind and do not matter. Go within, go beyond. Cease being
fascinated with the content of your consciousness. When you reach the
deep layers of your true being, you will find that the mind's
surface-play affects you very little

My advice to you is very simple –
just remember yourself, ‘I am’, it is enough to heal your mind and take
you beyond, just have some trust. I don’t mislead you. Why should I? Do
I want anything from you? I wish you well – such is my nature. Why
should I mislead you? Commonsense too will tell you that to fulfill a
...desire you must keep your mind on it. If you want to know your true
nature, you must have yourself in mind all the time, until the secret
of your being stands revealed.

Once you have understood that nothing perceivable, or conceivable, can be yourself, you are free.

Be careful. The moment you start talking you create a verbal universe, a universe of words, ideas, concepts and abstractions, interwoven and inter-dependent, most wonderfully generating, supporting and explaining each other and yet all without essence or substance, mere creations of the mind. Words create words, reality is silent.

Unmanifested, manifested, individuality, personality (nirguna, saguna, vyakta, vyakti); all these are mere words, points of view, mental attitudes. There is no reality in them

In nature nothing is at a standstill, everything pulsates, appears and disappears. Heart, breath, digestion, sleep and waking, birth and death - everything comes in waves. Rhythm, periodicity, harmonious alternation of extremes is the rule. No use rebelling against the very pattern of life.

It is neither necessary, nor possible to change others. But if you can change yourself you will find that no other change is needed. To change the picture you merely change the film. You do not attack the cinema screen.

If you want to make real progress you must give up all idea of personal attainment. The ambitions of the so-called Yogis are preposterous. A man's desire for a woman is innocence itself compared to the lusting for an everlasting personal bliss.

Put your awareness to work, not your mind. The mind is not the right instrument for this task. The timeless can be reached only by the timeless. Your body and your mind are born subject to time; only awareness is timeless, even in the now.

Leave it all behind you. Forget it. Go forth, unburdened with ideas and beliefs. Abandon all verbal structures, all relative truth, all tangible objectives.

Maharaj: Consciousness is time flowing continuously. But I, the Absolute, will not have its company eternally because consciousness is time bound. When this beingness goes, the Absolute will not know "I Am". Appearance and disappearance, birth and death, these are the qualities of beingness;
they are not your qualities.... You have urinated and odor is coming from that - are you that odor?
Q: No, I am not.
Maharaj: This beingness is like that urine. Can you be that beingness?

Awareness is primordial; it is the original state, beginningless, endless, uncaused, unsupported, without parts, without change. Consciousness is on contact, a reflection against a surface, a state of duality. There can be no consciousness without awareness, but there can be awareness without consciousness, as in deep... sleep. Awareness is absolute, consciousness is relative to its content; consciousness is always of something. Consciousness is partial and changeful, awareness is total, changeless, calm and silent. And it is the common matrix of every experience.

The mind must learn that beyond the moving mind there is the background of awareness, which does not change. The mind must come to know the true self and respect it and cease covering it up, like the moon which obscures the sun during solar eclipse. Just realise that nothing observable, or experienceable is you, or binds you. Take no notice of what is not yourself.

Your mind projects a structure and you identify yourself with it. It is in the nature of desire to prompt the mind to create a world for its fulfilment. Even a small desire can start a long line of action; what about a strong desire? Desire can produce a universe; its powers are miraculous. Just as a small matchstick can set a huge forest on fire, so does a desire light the fires of manifestation. The very purpose of creation is the fulfilment of desire. The desire may be noble, or ignoble, space (akash) is neutral -- one can fill it with what one likes: You must be very careful as to what you desire. And as to the people you want to help, they are in their respective worlds for the sake of their desires; there is no way of helping them except through their desires. You can only teach them to have right desires so that they may rise above them and be free from the urge to create and recreate worlds of desires, abodes of pain and pleasure.
