The universe is made up of experiences that are designed to burn out your attachment, your clinging, to pleasure, to pain, to fear, to all of it. And as long as there is a place where you’re vulnerable, the universe will find a way to confront you with it.

In the end
It is very simple
Either
We give ourselves
To silence
Or
We don't.

If you choose the breath as your focal point, make yourself fully aware of each in-breath and each out-breath. Notice the sensation created by the breath’s movement and fix your attention on the point where that feeling is most prominent; where the sensation of the breath is felt most acutely: for example, the tip of the nose. Make sure you know when the breath comes in and when it goes out, but don’t follow its course—simply focus on the spot where it passes through. If you find it helpful, combine your breathing with a silent repetition of buddho, thinking 'bud' on the point of inhalation and 'dho' on the point of exhalation. Don’t allow errant thoughts to interfere with the work you are doing. This is an exercise in awareness of the present-moment; so remain alert and fully attentive.

As mindfulness gradually establishes itself, the mind will stop paying attention to harmful thoughts and emotions. It will lose interest in its usual preoccupations. Undistracted, it will settle further and further into calm and stillness. At the same time, the breath—which is coarse when you first begin focusing on it— gradually becomes more and more refined. It may even reach the stage where it completely disappears from your conscious awareness. It becomes so subtle and refined that it fades and disappears. There is no breath at that time—only the mind’s essential knowing nature remains.

The man of true religion when he is on the path, is mainly concerned with his own internal struggle for liberation and peace. A steady, persevering and concentrated effort and struggle alone can lead the aspirant to the realisation of God.

What you are trying to do is already done!
It’s just that the spell of disbelief must leave you.
You have said 'Yes' inside your heart, to the Real.
Don't worry. Grace is taking all delusions away.

If you want liberation in this birth make your mind a cremation-ground and burn all your desires to ashes.
All that has form must disappear. The mind is also with form, so that too must go.
Repeat the five letters before your past karmas come and overpower you.
God is not the cause of sin and virtue.
One word of Grace can make all past karma fly away. Don't let your 'ego' spoil the intellect given you by God's Grace.
The whole is a picture.
Whether others treat you with kindness or with rudeness, don't be affected.
Your mother is divine and so is the dog.

Don't try to stop thinking, let it happen.
Just recognize that which is not thinking.

WE ARE ALREADY THAT >>>>>>>>>> "BUT"



All the age long vasanas (impressions) carry the mind outwards and turn it to external objects. All such thoughts have to be given up and the mind turned inward. For that effort is necessary, for most people. Of course, everybody, every book says ‘Be quiet or still’. But it is not easy. That is why all this effort is necessary.

Actions form no bondage.
Bondage is only the false notion - " I-am-the-doer ".
Leave off such thoughts and let the body and senses play their role, unimpeded by your interference.

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 that 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!

Persist in the enquiry throughout your waking hours. That would be quite enough. If you keep on making the enquiry till you fall asleep, the enquiry will go on during sleep also. Take up the enquiry again as soon as you wake up.

Know that the eradication of the identification with the body is charity, spiritual austerity and ritual sacrifice; it is virtue, divine union and devotion; it is heaven, wealth, peace and truth; it is grace; it is the state of divine silence; it is the deathless death; it is jnana, renunciation, final liberation and bliss.

Who is it that loves and who is it that suffers?
He alone stages a play with Himself.
The individual suffers because he perceives duality.
Find the One everywhere and in everything
and there will be an end to pain and suffering.

God is the one great Reality. To know and experience Him is the whole purpose of human existence. So do not hesitate to strive to achieve this great goal. Be patience in all the ups and downs of life. Everything will right itself. Do all that is necessary to be done, but do not be anxious. Do your best and leave the rest to God.

There’s only one way to become liberated, and that is to awaken, just to awaken, just wake up, just as you do in the morning when you wake up from sleep. You were in a dream world and you woke up. In the same way you awaken to your Self. The way to do this is to be at satsang, to surrender to the Self. When you surrender to the Self you’re surrendering to life. You’re no longer thinking “This has to work out this way. This has to work out that way. This has to be improved. I’ve got to read this book. I’ve got to go see this teacher.” True surrender is allowing your heart, your spiritual heart, to take over and you have nothing to do and nothing to say. All of the practices are incidental. Sadhana is important to make you come to the realization that you have to wake up. That’s all sadhana is for. It’s for no other reason. Sadhana, spiritual practices, do not wake you up by themselves. They have no awakening powers. But they put your mind to rest. When your mind is at rest you awaken.

The one who follows the thought is also a thought! The one who follows the thought IS in thought. When you know that both are thoughts, you are home. You are not in Home, you ARE Home. Then allow thoughts to arise and allow them to be followed. You remain as That unmoved and unconcerned Being. This is the highest understanding.
