Love doesn't disappear at all,
but this word love is mistaken for lust.
Love is pure, it cannot change.
If you once fall in Love with your own Self,
there is no escape from it.
But when it comes and goes,
some person must be involved in it.
And that is called lust, not love.

You are this Moment, introduce yourself to This, do not attach your mind to any direction. No sadhana, no past, no future, not even emptiness of your heart, not even space. To be free forever introduce yourself to this Moment. This Moment is always this Moment, It will not change. It is Freedom, free from mind and concepts, and is your fundamental birthright. The best use of this Moment is to drown in It. Keep quiet, you are inside of the inside, do not dwell anywhere and make no effort. The concept of effort and practice is bondage. Just keep quiet, wherever you are, just keep Quiet.

How are you going to understand Truth?
To study and read holy scriptures is not enough.
Better than studying the holy scriptures, go and drown yourself in the Master's spit.
Your Heart has to be baptised in the spirit of God - in trust and openness. Then alone will intuitive and effortless knowledge awaken in you.

Grace sometimes touches life in such a way that one's whole being is set on fire in such a powerful way that one become filled with a confidence and urge to throw one's whole existence into the abyss of the Self.
You may find yourself saying, 'Remove everything.
Save nothing. Remove every falsehood from my being.'
Then everything is thrown aside, including one's self, the 'thrower'. Unexpectedly, one finds a sense of great unburdening, a completeness, peace and quiet joy within one's heart. Now there remains an effortless silence and stillness. And it’s not that there remains an 'I' that received this. There is nobody to receive.
Inside one's being, one quietly knows: ‘I am neither a “receiver” nor a “giver”. I am no one.' And yet, one finds oneself saying, 'Thank you, Beloved.'

The great secret of true success, of true happiness, is this: the man or woman who asks for no return, the perfectly unselfish person, is the most successful.

Do not be overwhelmed. This is a time of great change. Observe. Be Aware. Be Alert. Take one step at a time. Follow what is in your heart. You will understand what your direction is to be. Truth, Simplicity and Love is the guide for living in this world. Observe change through the teachings of Truth, Simplicity and Love. The unreal cannot overwhelm the real. Great change cannot overwhelm the real.

Your strength is greater than the maya of change. Your heart is greater than the maya of change. Your higher self is greater than the maya of change. The maya of change passes, fades into nothing. The real remains, eternal, observing. Attach to the real and triumph over the maya of change. Follow what is in your heart and overcome the maya of change. Change is the Law of the Universe. The lower self is overwhelmed by change. The higher self is unmoved, alert, aware, and unconditionally observing. Change is merely the maya of Shiva's dance. Understand this and rise above the unreal.

At a certain point, somebody may call your name and the response to that call seems to evoke the memory of 'a somebody' but then attention goes scanning and finds that this 'somebody' cannot be found.
What did the caller intend to engage? Who was being called?
Nobody can be found and yet response occurs.
It is the same one who has been responding through every name but It is not the name.
The real quest is to discover this for yourself.
The seeker is quietly disappearing in the joy of the discovery.
Don't be in a hurry to share this.
Just keep dissolving.
Everything you do from now on will carry the fragrance of the Supreme and evoke in the minds of others a remembrance of That. One's very presence becomes a trigger for the remembrance of God even though one does nothing at all.

Questioner: Am I right to believe that you are God? SRI ANANDAMAYI MA: There is nothing save Him alone, everyone and everything are but forms of God. In your person, also He has come here now to give darshan. Q: Then why are you in this world? SRI MA: In this world? I am not anywhere. I am myself reposing within myself. Q: What is your work? SRI MA: I have no work. For whom can I work since there is only One?

THE MIND GOES ASTRAY AND THE MIND RETURNS HOME

M: All this belongs to the realm of manifestation; it is in the very structure of the universe, that the higher can be had only through the freedom from the lower.

Q: What is lower and what is higher?
M: Look at it in terms of awareness. Wider and deeper consciousness is higher. All that lives, works for protecting, perpetuating and expanding consciousness. This is the world's sole meaning and purpose. It is the very essence of Yoga -- ever raising the level of consciousness, discovery of new dimensions, with their properties, qualities and powers. In that sense the entire universe becomes a school of Yoga (yogakshetra).

Q: Is perfection the destiny of all human beings?
M: Of all living beings -- ultimately. The possibility becomes a certainty when the notion of enlightenment appears in the mind. Once a living being has heard and understood that deliverance is within his reach, he will never forget, for it is the first message from within. It will take roots and grow and in due course take the blessed shape of the Guru.

Q: So all we are concerned with is the redemption of the mind?
M: What else? The mind goes astray, the mind returns home. Even the word 'astray' is not proper.
The mind must know itself in every mood. Nothing is a mistake unless repeated.

When you stop searching and you calm down and you put your books away, and you confront yourself and see what you are all about, that will bring about bliss faster than anything you can ever imagine or ever do.

Guru No. 24 of Avadhoot Lord Dattatreya

Water: Lord Dattatreya replied that my twenty fourth guru is a Water. It quenches the thirst of every living creature, sustains innumerable life's, trees and all creatures. While it serves one and all living beings, it is never proud of itself. On the other hand, it humbly seeks the lowliest of places. The sage too should likewise bestow health, peace and joy to every creature that resorts to him. Yet he should ever live as the humblest of God’s creation.

I am dead already. Physical death will make no difference in my case. I am timeless being. I am free of desire or fear, because I do not remember the past or imagine the future. Where there are no names and shapes, how can there be desire and fear? With desirelessness comes timelessness. I am safe, because what is not, cannot touch what is. You feel unsafe, because you imagine danger. Of course, your body as such is complex and vulnerable and needs protection. But not you. Once you realize your own unassailable being, you will be at peace.

O Father, when I was blind I found not a door that led to Thee. Thou hast healed my eyes; now I discover doors everywhere: the hearts of flowers, the voices of friendship, memories of lovely experiences. Each gust of my prayer opens a new entrance to the vast temple of Thy presence.

Don’t study. If it happens, let it happen. But don’t be dedicated to study.
Be dedicated to drown yourself, to disappear, to vanish in the Absolute Self.
With such an attitude one moves from death to everlasting life.

We believe in so many things on hearsay. We believe in distant lands and people, in heavens and hells, in gods and goddesses, because we were told. Similarly, we were told about ourselves, our parents, name, position, duties and so on. We never cared to verify. The way to truth lies through the destruction of the false. To destroy the false, you must question your most inveterate beliefs. Of these the idea that you are the body is the worst. With the body comes the world, with the world -- God, who is supposed to have created the world and thus it starts -- fears, religions, prayers, sacrifices, all sorts of systems -- all to protect and support the child-man, frightened out of his wits by monsters of his own making. Realize that what you are cannot be born nor die and with the fear gone all suffering ends.
