Cling to nothing, knowing

Building your connection with the permanent and unchangeable, with God, or the Self, is the most important thing in life.

Sri Bhagavan says,
‘For Him who enjoys the bliss of Self,
which has risen by destroying the [individual] self [the mind or ego],
what single thing exists to do?
He does not know anything other than Self; [therefore] how to [or who can] conceive what His state is?’
Note: The sense of doership, the feeling ‘I am doing this action’, can exist only so long as the mind, whose form is the feeling ‘I am this’ or ‘I am that’, exists.
Therefore, when the mind is destroyed, the sense of doership is also destroyed.
Hence the yogi whose mind is dead and who thereby abides as Self, the reality, cannot be the doer of any action.
Whatever action He may appear to do exists only in the outlook of those who mistake Him to be the body which does the action.

~ Ulladu Narpadu, Verse31
Translation By MICHAEL JAMES.

Work is love made visible.

And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy.

For if you bake bread with indifference, you bake a bitter bread that feeds but half man’s hunger.

And if you grudge the crushing of the grapes, your grudge distils a poison in the wine.

And if you sing though as angels, and love not the singing, you muffle man’s ears to the voices of the day and the voices of the night.

I am opening the door to true understanding and direct experience for you.

You have to come out of all delusion and the biggest one is: I am the body and person. I am the 'thinker' of thoughts and the 'doer' of actions. I am giver and receiver.

Such delusions must vanish.

But we cannot just somehow snap a finger and you come out of delusion—even if you say it is all you really, really want.
But you have said 'Yes' to Truth even though, at present, it is not firmly established in your Heart. This 'Yes' is opening doors. Something is being refined by Grace in order that Truth gets established in the Heart. There is a space there, an unshared space.

Two kings cannot sit on one throne.

You don’t have to be a perfect sage but you have to want the Truth perfectly. Something perfect and infinite is here. And I cannot say what it is, for it is wordless. But work is going on in every Heart to prepare for It's coming.

Everyone has to be touched by the spirit of John the Baptist. Who is this John? He is the one who goes ahead to prepare each Heart for the coming of the Holy One.

The mind is like water; it always flows downwards. Even if waterfalls on the top of a mountain, it will still flow downwards. But fire always burns upward. Even if you turn a flame upside down, it will still burn upwards. It can vaporize and uplift water. So the fire denotes awareness and the water denotes the downward flow of our mind. The mind is always searching for materialistic comforts. We have to awaken the mind with the fire of inner awareness. We have to take a firm resolution to move forward.

Forget who you were or what you may have done in the past. Focus on what you would like to be, and then, while you are doing whatever is necessary to attain the goal, let go of the future as well.

Presently, stabilize in the consciousness. If you don't do that, your very concepts will be very dangerous to you - they will throttle you to death. The knowledge you are is the source of all energy, the source of all Gods, of all types of knowledge.

Get rid of your arrogance.
Develop humility. Become humble.
By that I do not mean become a doormat for people to step on.
In humility there is strength. You understand the truth, therefore you do not get involved in pettiness, in nonsense. The truth shall always prevail regardless of appearences.

Experience leaves only memories behind and adds to the burden which is heavy enough. You need no more experiences. The past ones are sufficient. And if you feel you need more, look into the hearts of people around you. You will find a variety of experiences which you would not be able to go through in a thousand years. Learn from the sorrows of others and save yourself your own. It is not experience that you need, but the freedom from all experience. (317)

Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi

Once Bhagavan was asked whether it was true that by the grace of the guru the highest state is reached in a moment. Bhagavan replied,
“Yes. If the disciple is in a ripe state, the ajnana (ignorance) will be removed only by the avalokana (look) of the guru.”
He added,
“The kripa (grace) flows towards one in proportion to one’s merit. If the vessel is small, the kripa received will be small; if the vessel is big, the kripa will be proportionately more.”
Once, going through an English daily as usual, Bhagavan read somewhat aloud a sensational report of a new invention and smiled. After a pause he gently remarked, “One may acquire any number of powers, but without realising the yathartha (truth) one cannot acquire mano shanti
(peace of mind).
When someone asked,
“What is yathartha?”
Bhagavan replied,
“That which exists always,”
and added after a pause,
“Peace is our swabhava (nature). Just as a person who keeps a number of things in a
room and complains that there is no space in the room, we say there is no peace. Is not the space obtained automatically when the things are removed?”

Every unfavourable circumstance can be converted into a favourable one. In this world, many people will throw mud at us in the form of their words and actions. Without falling into despair, a spiritual aspirant should be able to shake our minds free from this dirt and convert them into stepping stones.

There once was a spiritual aspirant living in a village. He was absorbed in his practices with an attitude of surrender. There was a person in the village who would always mock and criticize him.

Suddenly, one fine day, this critic passed away. A person came running to the aspirant and said, “I have good news: the person who always criticized you passed away.”

When the aspirant heard the news, he said with sadness, “So sad. I’ve lost such a good friend. He always helped me to keep my focus centered on my guru and to progress on the spiritual path.”

Like this, every unfavourable circumstance can be converted into a favourable one.

CONVERSATIONS WITH ANNAMALAI SWAMI

Does Swami understand Jesus Christ to be a jnani like so many other jnanis, or was he something more than that?
AS: If the ego is destroyed, only non-dual consciousness remains.
There is no higher or lower in that state.
You cannot say that one jnani is in a different state from another. You cannot say that Jesus Christ is better than Bhagavan or vice versa. There is no higher state than that of the jnani and there is no jnani who is superior to any other jnani.
Although the inner state and experience of all jnanis is the same, their outer activities differ because each of them has a
different destiny to fulfill. Some will become teachers and some will not.
If there is water in a glass it will quench the thirst of one man; if there is water in a big pot it may quench the thirst of thirty or forty people; if there is water in a well it can quench the thirst of all the people in a village or a town.
Some spiritual aspirants have done tapas only for their own realization. After realization they may be able to help a few people. But some jnanis have done prolonged tapas not only for their own realization but also to help liberate others. The jnanis who have done this kind of tapas become world
famous masters and have many followers.
