Empty your mind of all thoughts. Let your heart be at peace. Watch the turmoil of beings, but contemplate their return. Each separate being in the Universe returns to the common source. Returning to the source is serenity.

Ananta

Every person believes that they can spot their ego, not realizing that the person is the ego. The ego is only the sense that ‘I am a person’, which is created by believing thought.
When belief in thought is withdrawn, the oxygen supply to the person is cut off, but he still lives for a while, gasping for breath, panicking. In panic, he believes the most beautiful of thoughts: "I am God", "Belief in thought is also God's will", etc. But he cannot rely on them, and soon even these pristine thoughts are dropped.
Then he knows. Then he knows everything that can come from this mouth is only false and there is no Truth that can be spoken.
Silence is the only Truth.

Like the fragrance in a flower, like an image in a mirror, this sense of "I amness" is felt in the body. Therefore, give up your name 'Nanak' and also your identity with the body and abide in the sense of "I amness". You shall be liberated.

O Mind. What are you searching inside and outside? It is One only. Once the earthen pot bearing the name 'Nanak' is broken by getting rid of the concept that "I am the body", where then is the inside and outside? It is only 'I' prevailing everywhere.

Step out of the dream of your concepts and ideas.
Step out of the dream of what you imagine enlightenment to be.
Step out of the dream of who you think you are.
Step out of the dream of everything you have ever known.
Step out of your dream of being a deluded person.
Stop telling yourself those lies and dreaming those dreams.
Step out of all of that.
You can do it. Nothing is holding you back.
There are no requirements and no prerequisites to awaken.
There is nothing to be done, nothing to think, nowhere to go.


Just stop all dreaming.
Stop all doing.
Stop all excuses.
Just stop and be still.
Effortlessly be still.
Grace will do the rest.

Know yourself for who you are.
Never put yourself down.
Never compare yourself with anyone else.
Never be judgmental.
Learn to leave everything alone.
Do not come to a conclusion about anything.
There is no ultimate answer.
Do not search for reality.
Do not search for answers.
You will be searching for eternity.

Love is another word for the Self.
The Self is all-pervading.
The Self is consciousness.
The Self is absolute reality.
Therefore when I say I love you, the ‘I’ which is consciousness, absolute reality, the love which is also consciousness, which is absolute reality come together into oneness.
There is only one.
One love, one consciousness, one ‘I’.

Life is inviting you:
Slow down in me. Move in me, with me, as me in this holy Oneness.

The truth is that you are not alive as you appear.
The truth is that you are not anything that you can see, hear, touch, smell or feel.
You are not the senses, you are not the doer, you are not searching for anything, you are awake right now.
You are free right this moment.
And there is nothing that can ever interfere in this.
Not even your mind, not even yourself.

Remember this.
Self-Inquiry should be spontaneous.
It should not be a drudgery.
It should not be something you planned.
You simply begin to look at yourself.

Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi

See More
When the mind [i.e., the ego’s attention] which wanders outside, knowing only other objects [2nd and 3rd persons] – begins to attend to its own nature, all other objects will disappear, and then, by experiencing its own true nature [i.e. Self], the pseudo-‘I’ will also die.

-GURU VACHAKA KOVAI, Verse 193.

Many of you have been performing yoga practices, meditations, chanting, pranayama and various techniques in order to awaken.
But I say to you that this will never cause you to awaken.
It will bring you good feelings, it will bring you a semblance of peace, but you will never awaken through the practice of yoga unless the yoga leads to Self-Inquiry, or it leads to complete surrender of the ego.
If you practice anything else it inflates the ego.

Laugh with people laughing, cry with people crying, but don’t fall into the river of world illusion. Stay on the banks.

Notice how often your attention is in the past or future. Don’t judge or analyze what you observe. Watch the thought, feel the emotion, observe the reaction. Don’t make a personal problem out of them. You will then feel something more powerful than any of those things you observe: the still observing presence itself behind the content of your mind, the silent watcher.

Changes are inevitable in the changeful, but you are not subject to them. You are the changeless background, against which changes are perceived.

If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place. As soon as you honor the present moment, unhappiness and struggle dissolve, and life begins to flow with joy and ease. When you act out the present-moment awareness, whatever you do becomes imbued with a sense of quality, care, and love - even the most simple action.

Use the method that is gentle to you.
That does not irk you.
That feels right for you.
There are many ways to practice Self-Inquiry.
Self-Inquiry merely means,
«Inquiring».
And you can inquire whatever happens to you.
For instance if you want to know what method to use, inquire.
Ask yourself.
You can ask yourself,
«What shall I do to get closer to awakening?»
Ask yourself that question.
And all of a sudden like a flash something may come and respond and say, ‘I-am’.
Then you can practice the ‘I-am meditation’.
Sometimes nothing comes and you’re silent.
That means you should rest in the silence and be silent for a while.
But go with the flow.
Do not force yourself.
If you force yourself to do something you’ll hate it and you’ll say this doesn’t work and you’ll give it all up.
There is so many methods I share with you, you can either practice them all or practice one, the important thing is, is to always be doing something.
Never allow the world to get to you.
To grab a hold of you and make you worldly.

102 Awaken! - October 13, 1991

Robert Q shared a Eckhart Tolle quote         SHARE URL

Eckhart Tolle

See More
The moment you become aware of the ego in you, it is strictly speaking no longer the ego, but just an old, conditioned mind-pattern. Ego implies unawareness. Awareness and ego cannot coexist. The old mind-pattern or mental habit may still survive and reoccur for a while because it has the momentum of thousands of years of collective human unconsciousness behind it, but every time it is recognized, it is weakened.

Life without a reason, a purpose, a position… the mind is frightened of this because then “my life” is over with, and life lives itself and moves from itself in a totally different dimension. This way of living is just life moving. That’s all.

Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.

Surrender your existence to existence.
Discover your spontaneity.
To entertain the belief that you know what you are going to do in the future or next week is a madness.
What a restriction, a limitation and a repression.
Life flows spontaneously and is infinitely greater than all your plans or intensions put together.
Why spoil it with hasty and vain projections?
Let it be whatever it will be. Give up trying to manipulate.
This is Freedom.
