Consider yourself lucky if your mind is fed up with worldly objects.

The dream within the dream is your thinking about what is Essential and what is non-essential, and when you realize that you are the Self, Atman, then you have this experience...

You felt that the world is illusory. You felt that you are awake and that it is your waking state. You felt that you have obtained 'experience,' but still, your confusion, your illusion, is persisting as it was. You are yet talking about things in the dream.

When there is true awakening, all the sense of 'being' disappears. Even the sense that you are the Self, also dissolves.

ONE WHO LIVES AS A BODY SUFFERS AS A BODY .
----------------------------------------------------------------------

The devotee actually is God. What do you mean when you say that he has "become" God? The concept of "one's self" is an illusion. There is only One Self in the world. Regardless of whether you say serpent or scorpion, all are only Brahman. The world appearance consists of the five elements, and the one Self, and all of this is only God. This gives us the "Glory" of non-division, non-duality, and the non-worrying state, and all of this virtue is One, and it comes all at once. Illusion has taken our possession (that of knowing our True Identity). Therefore, we have become unhappy. The signs of the "Realization of Brahman" are the sense of peace, absence of anxiety, full contentment, and an extraordinary feeling of bliss. What is being experienced as joy or bliss within becomes evident in the organs, skin, and face. The peace and contentment which completely fills Consciousness will be expressed outwardly. In other words, the spreading of light out through the windows, from the lamp that is lit inside. The "Glory" is the absence of anxiety in the mental field.

The Bird's Way
The way of meditation is a long arduous path while the Bird's Way is a clear direct path of Self investigation, Self exploration, and using thought or concepts as an aid to understanding and Self-Realization. Sometimes this approach is also called the Reverse Path. What Reverse Path indicates is the turning around of one's attention away from objectivity to the more subjective sense of one's Beingness. With the Bird's Way, first one's mind must be made subtle. This is generally done with some initial meditation on a mantra or phrase which helps the aspirant to step beyond the mental/conceptual body, using a concept to go beyond conceptualization.

There should not be even an iota of the sense that 'I am the doer,' 'I have done,' 'I do,' etc.

There is a game of madness, and it was decided that you must keep on playing this game win or lose, pleasure or pain, and you must keep experiencing it. You call it pleasure, but it must be killed. There is real happiness in killing the enjoyment, but people keep up the imagination, which is really only suffering. If you have killed the enjoyment, that is good. However, the killer of enjoyment must also die.

When attention is diverted from the Self towards objects, that is called the beginning of the eclipse. That is the Illusion. That is mind.

Objects of the senses are tied like rope by desire which has its youth in the sense of "I".

Beingness means 'Consciousness', or 'Knowledge'. The mind attending to other things is called bondage. The mind when not attending to anything else, is Brahman. When there is no thinking about objects in the mind, the mind is clean, it is still. That is the state of Brahman.

One who constantly craves after sense objects is immersed in those objects, and one who meditates on the Self (Atman) becomes the Self. Do not say, 'I will meditate on God later. I will do it sometime later.' You should constantly meditate, contemplate, and let your mind dwell on the Self with great love for it.

Temporal life or worldliness means an attempt
to make oneself happy at the cost and sacrifice
of others, being totally indifferent to others
welfare and miseries. Your natural happiness is
not acquired by any effort or means. Temporary
things can only bring temporary happiness.
Knowing the Self brings Eternal happiness to all
because It is Eternal. In the temporal there is
endless misery and in the Self there is
boundless and unexcelled Eternal joy.

Paramartha means [1] to realise the Origin of
the whole universe, [2] to enjoy one's own
natural happiness without making any effort, [3]
to make all people similarly and equally happy,
and [4] the Perfection of Material Science. It is
the highest attainment of Absolute Reality.

The greatest evil habit is worldly life. It is called the "Great Addiction". By force of this addiction to worldly life, Paramatman is made to believe that He is an individual, and is compelled to live a worldly life as if in prison. All bad habits can be dropped, but the addiction to mundane life is the most difficult to drop. The wife is dear to her husband so long as she obeys him. The mundane worldly life is called the blindingly dark life. The greatest inticement of Illusion is this mundane life. However great may be one's sorrow, this addiction cannot be dropped. One is greatly lucky if this addiction is dropped. There is only one person who condemns the worldly life, and he is a Saint. Nobody else does that. One does not even think of this earthly life, even if one suffers the utmost difficulties. People try to strengthen their ties with others by speaking to them respectfully and congratulating each other over small things. People compete with each other for earning more honors and status. In this way, they feel that they are happy in life. They act as if this is a respectable bad habit. The God of Death is happy to give you many kinds of bodies and various troubles. Give up the sense of "mine". Know that the body is your enemy. Very few are those who have truly understood. Only those who are lucky enough to receive the blessings of the Guru, who is the Self, can escape from this Illusion by right efforts. All others are bound to the treadmill of life in various incarnations and they make houses of bodies of various shapes and duration.

"So long as there is a sense of something being amiss, or when some doubts still trouble the mind, there is the concept that there is something still wrong. One whose mind is not disturbed at all, no matter what may happen, is the one who is free from even the subtle body. One who does not feel shaken, even if any disaster may fall, is really Brahman.

It is the hand that lifts, but you say "I lift".

The eyes see but you say, "I see".

The nose smells, but you say, "I smell".

All this is the power of the Self and yet you say, "I did it".

That power belongs to God.

Who is this ego arrogating 'I'?

He has no place in the palace, but once admitted inside, he overrules the king and affirms his own existence.

But after some enquiry, this ego's existence is easily disproved.

Then the king once again affirms, "I am Reality."

There is one thing about this condition – there is bliss.

If there are two, then there is pain.

Where there is One, there is bliss.

"To gain Oneself, by Oneself, is like deducting one from one. What remains in the equation 'one minus one' is the Supreme Self, Paramatman, who is without name and form."

"The real worth is related to the original thing. That thing is made to assume various forms and the whole game is going on. It is a fun. It is an amusement. It is a play of imagination indulged in, in idle time. It is playful attitude, and idea of fun. There is no consideration whether there is profit or loss, good or undesirable. It is just merriment of Consciousness. There is no need to feel sorry or happy about it. It is just a joyful mood of Consciousness. However, one who takes this seriously as true, falls into an ocean of sorrows."

“While looking at the moon, the space in between did not come to your attention. Therefore, it is Consciousness without an object. If this space is separated, and is made an object of sight, this Pure Knowledge is transformed into a zero, because if Space is seen separately, the modification of the mind becomes a void. If there is any difference between Space and Pure Knowledge it is this: To separately look at one's own nature is Space, and when the 'looking' is abandoned, it is 'Pure Knowledge'.”
