When you do not stir any thought from the mind ground, without moving, without moving the mind, without starting a single thought - in an instant of time you are free.

I see the Lord in His universe, the Master said, Viewing a beautiful tree, my heart is moved and whispers: 'He is there!' I bow to adore Him. Doesn't He permeate every atom of the earth? Could our planet exist at all except by the cohesive power of God? When we see Him in all persons, in all things; each rock becomes an altar.

The difficulty in the spiritual path is always what comes from oursleves. A person does not like to be a pupil, he likes to be a teacher. If one only knew that the greatness and perfection of the great ones who have come from time to time to this world was in their being pupils and not in teaching! The greater the teacher, the better pupil he was. He learned from everyone, the great and the lowly, the wise and the foolish, the old and the young. He learned from their lives, and studied human nature in all its aspects.

It is wise to drop the sense of responsibility and free-will by regarding ourselves as the ordained instruments of the All-wise and All-powerful, to do and suffer as He pleases. He carries all burdens and gives us peace.

When you begin to realize that your mind does not really exist, then the life you've been following becomes invalid.
It just dissipates, as if you awoke from a dream.

Jnana path has been recommended only for the top-level aspirants. In order for him not to lose his balance by that very qualification of topness, and for his SAdhanA not to be broken by the weight of such extraneous thoughts, the submissive attitude of bhakti becomes necessary. However much we may woo Brahman with love, unless brahman itself does the ‘revealing’ (known as ‘vivaraNaM’), there is no scope for salvation. It is with this thought that one has to submit humbly before the ideal goal. To obtain this submissive attitude it is only Bhakti that helps.

Each wave in the brain that says "I" and "mine" immediately puts a chain around us and makes us slaves, and the more we say "I" and "mine" more our slavery, the greater our misery. Therefore, the Karma-yoga advises us to enjoy the beauty of all things in the world, but not to identify with any of them.

Do not believe that if you're watching TV or watching a movie you cannot meditate or practice Self-Inquiry.
You will be amazed that as you're watching the movie you can keep inquiring,
"To whom does this come?
Who am I?"
Or you can become aware that you are like the screen in the movie.
You cannot see the screen, you see the images on the screen.
Yet the images are not real.
If you try to grab them, you grab the screen.
Just contemplating this helps.
And then you realize that you are like the screen, that is your real nature, and all the images in the universe are superimposed upon you, just as the images of the movie are superimposed on the screen.

Nothing is done by me, everything just happens. I do not expect, I do not plan, I just watch events happening, knowing them to be unreal.

When you recognize that there is a voice in your head that pretends to be you and never stops speaking, you are awakening out of your unconscious identification with the stream of thinking.

Just observe the tremendous potential of the ‘I am’
it has kept the whole world running, the entire
manifestation has come from it, its perpetual
stubbornness is astonishing. To be free from it you
have to understand it in its utmost purity and then
meditate on it for a reasonable amount of time. The
intensity of your meditation should be such that
you become totally one with the ‘I am’. Then a
moment will come when it merges into itself and
you go beyond to your true being, which is the
Absolute or the ‘Parabrahman’.

Nature loves courage. You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. This is the trick. This is what all these teachers and philosophers who really counted, who really touched the alchemical gold, this is what they understood. This is the shamanic dance in the waterfall. This is how magic is done. By hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering it’s a feather bed.

We never feel grief when we lose something that we have allowed to be free, that we have never attempted to possess. Grief is a sign that I made happiness depend on this thing or a person, at least to some extent. We’re so accustomed to hear the opposite of this that what I say sounds inhuman, doesn’t it?

True wealth is but the gracious silence of steady, unswerving Self-awareness. This bright rare treasure, can be gained only by those who earnestly strive for the extinction of all thoughts.

Watch your mind, how it comes into being, how it operates. As you watch your mind, you discover your self as the watcher. When you stand motionless, only watching, you discover your self as the light behind the watcher. The source of light is dark, unknown is the source of knowledge. That source alone is. Go back to that source and abide there.

The nothingness I speak of is eternity, omnipresence. When you do not identify with anything, everything unfolds as it should, and you become very happy. When you look into the future, trying to become something, or attain something, or improve something, you always worry, you have fears. And even if you attain it, it’s not what you thought it was. When you identify with emptiness, your true nature, this is Brahman, absolute reality. Another name for pure awareness is nothing. Absolute reality is nothing. Pure intelligence is no thing. Your real nature is no thing. It is no thing that you can describe. It is pure emptiness.

Do not wander outside, eating the scorching sand of worldly pleasures, which are non-Self; come home to the Heart where Peace is shining as a vast, everlasting, cool shade, and enjoy the feast of the Bliss of Self.

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.

Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

Remember the clear light, the pure clear white light from which everything in the universe comes, to which everything in the universe returns; the original nature of your own mind. The natural state of the universe unmanifest. Let go into the clear light, trust it, merge with it. It is your own true nature, it is home.

You are awareness.
Awareness is another name for you. Since you are awareness there is no need to attain or cultivate it. All that you have to do is to give up being aware of other things, that is of the not-Self. If one gives up being aware of them then pure awareness alone remains, and that is the Self.

Keep your mind still. That is enough. You will get spiritual help sitting in this hall if you keep yourself still. The aim of all practices is to give up all practices. When the mind becomes still, the power of the Self will be experienced. The waves of the Self are pervading everywhere. If the mind is in peace, one begins to experience them.

The name and form of the spiritually enlightened saint experiences the pangs and sorrows of life, but not their sting. He is neither moved nor perturbed by the pleasures and pains, nor the profits and losses of the world. He is thus in a position to direct others. His behaviour is guided exclusively by the sense of justice.
