We do not need to search in order to find our True Being, we already are it. And the mind which searches for it, is the very reason why we cannot find it.

As long as the mind is there, your body and your world are there. Your world is mind-made, subjective, enclosed within the mind, fragmentary, temporary, personal, hanging on the thread of memory.

We could say that meditation doesn’t have a reason or doesn’t have a purpose. In this respect it’s unlike almost all other things we do except perhaps making music and dancing. When we make music we don’t do it in order to reach a certain point, such as the end of the composition. If that were the purpose of music then obviously the fastest players would be the best. Also, when we are dancing we are not aiming to arrive at a particular place on the floor as in a journey. When we dance, the journey itself is the point, as when we play music the playing itself is the point. And exactly the same thing is true in meditation. Meditation is the discovery that the point of life is always arrived at in the immediate moment.

Many voices ask for our attention. There is a voice that says, ‘Prove that you are a good person.’ Another voice says, ‘You’d better be ashamed of yourself.’ There also is a voice that says, ‘Nobody really cares about you,’ and one that says, ‘Be sure to become successful, popular, and powerful.’ But underneath all these often very noisy voices is a still, small voice that says, ‘You are my Beloved, my favor rests on you.’ That’s the voice we need most of all to hear. To hear that voice, however, requires special effort; it requires solitude, silence, and a strong determination to listen. That’s what prayer is. It is listening to the voice that calls us ‘my Beloved.’

Trees are in love with the earth, the earth is in love with the trees. The birds are in love with the trees, the trees are in love with the birds. The earth is in love with the sky, the sky is in love with the earth. The whole existence exists in a great ocean of love. Let love be your worship, let love be your prayer.

Everybody sees the world through the idea he has of himself. As you think yourself to be, so you think the world to be. If you imagine yourself as separate from the world, the world will appear as separate from you and you will experience desire and fear. I do not see the world as separate from me and so there is nothing for me to desire, or fear.

If God said, ‘Rumi pay homage to everything that has helped you enter my arms,’ there would not be one experience of my life, not one thought, not one feeling, nor any act, I would not bow to.

All your seriousness is about sandcastles. And you yourself will leave them one day, trampling them down, and you will not look back. The people who take it seriously miss the beauty of playfulness.

Always bear this in mind: Everything is in God’s hands, and you are His tool to be used by Him as He pleases. Try to grasp the significance of ‘all is His’ and you will immediately feel free from all burdens. What will be the result of your surrender to Him? None will seem alien, all will be your very own Self.

Beneath the ever-flowing stream of sensations, including mind and the ‘I’ sense, there is only this. The wise refer to it as the sole reality—as That which Is. It could also be referred to as Buddha-being but no Buddha.
Now, what further inquiry is needed? Inquiry is necessary only when the sense ‘I’ arises and swells up, to the extent that detached and silent observation seems eclipsed or overpowered by intense personal identification with the unreal. Should this occur, find out immediately who is affected or involved in that play. Who suffers? Keep quiet, dive within and track down the sufferer. Is it real? Tangible? Can it be held in view?

Excerpt From: Mooji. “Before I Am.”

You should develop loving kindness to everyone and everything,
not only to human beings, to animals, to vegetables, to minerals.
You should treat everything with loving kindness.
You should acquire a good disposition and stop getting angry.
You should develop joy within yourself, humility.
You should not be concerned with what the world is doing.
You should not be concerned with what appears to be happening to you. But every reaction of yours should be based on love, on peace,
on loving kindness, compassion.

If we love everyone as a mother loves her dearest child there will be no basis for any problems to arise because our mind will always be at peace. Love is the real inner protection against suffering.

Everything is as it is. It
has no name other than the
name we give it. It is we
who call it something; we
give it a value. We say this
thing is good or it’s bad, but
in itself, the thing is only as
it is. It’s not absolute; it’s
just as it is. People are just
as they are.

Those who don`t feel this Love
pulling them like a river,
those who don`t drink dawn
like a cup of springwater
or take in sunset like supper,
those who don`t want to change,
let them sleep.

This Love is beyond the study of theology,
that old trickery and hypocrisy.
If you want to improve your mind that way,
sleep on.

I`ve given up on my brain.
I`ve torn the cloth to shreds
and thrown it away.

If you`re not completely naked,
wrap your beautiful robe of words
around you,
and sleep.

If you keep indulging the mind's play, you will miss the untouched stillness inside the heart.

We will know in due course that our glory lies where we cease to exist. In order to gain the state, one should surrender saying, "Lord, thou art my refuge." The master then sees that this person is in a fit state to receive guidance, and so gives it. The best instruction is heart-to-heart speech in silence.

Attach to the real. Changes are many. Lessons are many. The flow of life plays out. The fog slowly lifts and the path becomes visible. But always be aware that the path is like the Ganges, always changing, never still. That is why we would bathe in it early each morning. To remind us, to understand, that change is the Law of Nature. This is the great lesson. See? And my message of Truth, Simplicity and Love is the tool for living in the river of change. Change, change, change ... this is the way of the Universe. But there is a stillness, a ground of being, where I am no-body, no-thing, eternally observing all of this change. This is the realm of the Higher Self.

You all think devotion is fun. Some day you will have to jump without fear of life or death; then you will be able to make progress. When the time comes, you will have to walk through fire and water.

That which cannot change, remains. The great peace, the deep silence, the hidden beauty of reality remain.
While it cannot be conveyed through words, it is waiting for you to experience for yourself.

However deep your
Knowledge of the scriptures,
it is no more than a strand of hair
in the vastness of space;
However important appears
your worldly experience,
it is but a drop of water in a deep ravine.

Words, heard or read, will only create images in your mind, but you are not a mental image. You are the power of perception and action behind and beyond the image.

The Truth is that Self is constant and un-intermittent Awareness. The object of enquiry is to find the true nature of the Self as Awareness. Let one practice enquiry so long as separateness is perceived. Once realization arises, there is no further need for enquiry. The question will also not arise. Can awareness ever think of questioning who is aware? Awareness remains pure and simple.

Don’t fight with what you take to be obstacles on your way. Just be interested in them, watch them, observe, enquire. Let anything happen - good or bad. But don’t let yourself be submerged by what happens. 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 realize that nothing observable, or experienceable is you, or binds you. Take no notice of what is not yourself. You are aware anyhow, you need not try to be. What you need is to be aware of being aware. Be aware deliberately and consciously, broaden and deepen the field of awareness. You are always conscious of the mind, but you are not aware of yourself as being conscious.

As you become more aware of your awareness, the stories of the mind will start to lose their power. You will not be saddened by that, because the joy in you is incomparable. Know this, confirm this, deep within your own being. You are not creating, you are simply recognizing, discovering, what is timelessly present as your own Self.
So as you move from this place it will not matter whether eyes are closed or open. May this that you have tasted within yourself continue to flower, to blossom inside, and to drink your mind up and to keep it in harmony. Then wherever you go, a garden will grow there.
