Spiritual maturity lies in the readiness to let go everything. The giving up is the first step. But the real giving up is in realizing that there is nothing to give up, for nothing is your own. It is like deep sleep—you do not give up your bed when you fall sleep—you just forget it.

What is there to keep up?
What is there to maintain?
What is there to practice?
What is there to remember?
What is there to be?
What matters so much?

Is suffering really necessary. Yes and no. If you had not suffered as you have, there would be no depths to you as a human being–no humility, no compassion. You would not be listening to this now. Suffering cracks open the shell of ego. And then comes a point where it has served its purpose. Suffering is necessary until you realize that it is unnecessary.

Many times I have been in the jaws of death, starving, footsore, and weary; for days and days I had no food, and often could walk no further; I would sink down under a tree, and life would seem to be ebbing away. I could not speak, I could scarcely think, but at last the mind reverted to the idea: "I have no fear nor death; never was I born, never did I die; I never hunger or thirst. I am It! I am It! The whole of nature cannot crush me; it is my servant. Assert thy strength, thou Lord of lords and God of gods! Regain thy lost empire! Arise and walk and stop not!" And I would rise up, reinvigorated; and here I am today, living! Thus, whenever darkness comes, assert the reality and everything adverse must vanish.

Never defile your Self, by hating yourself. Never believe there is any mistake you've made that is going to rise up against you. Everyone has made mistakes, forget it. Begin to realize who you are, begin to love yourself dearly, have mercy on yourself, lift yourself up and become free.

Rushing into action, you fail. Trying to grasp things, you lose them. Forcing a project to completion, you ruin what was almost ripe. Therefore the Master takes action by letting things take their course. He remains as calm at the end as at the beginning. He has nothing, thus he has nothing to lose. What he desires is non-desire; what he learns is to unlearn. He simply reminds people of who they have always been. He cares about nothing but the Tao. Thus he can care for all things.

You are not seeing the beauty of this Universe because you are putting so many herbs and spices of your own intentions upon the world in order to give it a taste that you want, that your mind want. Free from indentity, your eyes perceive in such silence, beauty and clarity without the judging mind, just pure as it is. Watch life with silent eyes.

Nisargadatta Maharaj: How does personality, come into being? By memory. By identifying the present with the past and projecting it into the future. Think of yourself as momentary, without past and future and your personality dissolves.

Questioner: Does not 'I am' remain?

Nisargadatta Maharaj: The word 'remain' does not apply. 'I am' is ever afresh. You do not need to remember in order to be. As a matter of fact, before you can experience anything, there must be the sense of being. At present your being is mixed up with experiencing. All you need is to unravel being from the tangle of experiences. Once you have known pure being, without being this or that, you will discern it among experiences and you will no longer be misled by names and forms.
Self-limitation is the very essence of personality.

~ from 'I Am That'; ch.45

In my experience, everyone will say they want to discover the Truth, right up until they realize that the Truth will rob them of their deepest held ideas, beliefs, hopes, and dreams. The freedom of enlightenment means much more than the experience of love and peace. It means discovering a Truth that will turn your view of self and life upside-down. For one who is truly ready, this will be unimaginably liberating. But for one who is still clinging in any way, this will be extremely challenging indeed. How does one know if they are ready? One is ready when they are willing to be absolutely consumed, when they are willing to be fuel for a fire without end.

The light of the world comes and goes, it is unstable. The Light that is eternal can never be extinguished. By this Light you behold the outer light and everything in the universe; it is only because It shines ever within you, that you can perceive the outer light. Whatever appears to you in the universe is due solely to that great Light within you, and only because the Supreme Knowledge of the essence of things lies hidden in the depths of your being is it possible for you to acquire knowledge of any kind.

"Просто иди своим путём". (Притча)

Один из учеников спросил Будду:
— Если меня кто-нибудь ударит, что я должен делать?
Будда ответил:
— Если на тебя с дерева упадет сухая ветка и ударит тебя, что ты должен сделать?
Ученик сказал:
— Что же я буду делать? Это же простая случайность, простое совпадение, что я оказался под деревом, когда с него упала сухая ветка.
Будда сказал:
— Так делай то же самое. Кто-то был безумен, был в гневе, и ударил тебя. Это все равно, что на тебя упала ветка с дерева. Пусть это не тревожит тебя, просто иди своим путем, будто ничего и не случилось.

Нас нет отдельно. Нету множеств
Во всеобъявшем сердце Божьем,
Во всеобъемлющем провале,
Где мы исчезли, мы пропали.
Но можно, только исчезая,
Узнать, что нет у жизни края.

II

Об этом - всё. Об этом - море,
Об этом взлёты дальних взгорий,
Озёр немеющая гладь -
О том, что надо всё терять.
Всё, всё отдать, всё разом скинуть
И без всего нырнуть в глубины.
Как долго небо на закате
Поёт, что надо всё утратить
И вдруг увидеть в бездне Божьей
То, что утратить невозможно.

Questioner: You say all are God. But are not some people more God than others?

SRI ANANDAMAYI MA: For him who asks such a question, this is so. But in actual fact God is fully and equally present everywhere.

Questioner: Is there no substance to me as an individual? Is there nothing in me that is not God?

SRI ANANDAMAYI MA: No, even in "not being God" there is only God alone. Everything is He.

Поскольку эго в форме “я”-мысли есть корень древа иллюзии, его унич­тожение разрушает иллюзию точно так же, как дерево па­дает, когда его корни отрублены. Этот лёгкий метод унич­тожения эго один достоин именоваться бхакти (предан­ность), джняна (Знание), Йога (Союз) и дхьяна (медита­ция)

Enquire: 'Who am I?' and you will find the answer. Look at a tree: from one seed arises a huge tree; from it comes numerous seeds, each one of which in its turn grows into a tree. No two fruits are alike. Yet it is one life that throbs in every particle of the tree. So, it is the same Atman everywhere.

All creation is that. There is beauty in the birds and in the animals. They too eat and drink like us, mate and multiply; but there is this difference: we can realize our true nature, the Atman. Having been born as human beings, we must not waste this opportunity. At least for a few seconds every day, we must enquire as to who we are. It is no use taking a return ticket over and over again. From birth to death, and death to birth is samsara. But really we have no birth and death. We must realize that.

Truth is the simplest thing
in the whole world because
it is already timelessly perfect
and unchanging.

It is not created
and it cannot be perfected.
It can only be discovered
as one's true Being.

It is the greatest miracle that a human being, borne with so much challenges, can rise like the lotus flower...it grows in the pond, in the mud pond, but it remains all it's life untouched...even if the rain falls heavily, and the waters rise...the lotus will still be always above the water...this is the nature of the spirit...

When the lips are closed,

then the heart begins to speak;

when the heart is silent,

then the soul blazes up,

bursting into flame,

and this illuminates the whole universe.

The mystic realizes the power of the word

and the splendor of silence

The word can do so much,

but even more can be accomplished by silence.

Great phenomena are produced by words

but greater miracles are performed by silence.

Question: How can silence be so powerful?

Bhagavan: A realised one sends out wa
ves of spiritual influence, which draw many people towards him. Yet he may sit in a cave and maintain complete silence. We may listen to lectures upon truth and come away with hardly any grasp of the subject, but to come into contact with
a realised one, though he speaks nothing, will give much more grasp of the subject. He never needs to go out among the public. If necessary he can use others as instruments.

The Guru is the bestower of silence who reveals the light of Self-knowledge that shines as the residual reality. Spoken words are of no use whatsoever if the eyes of the Guru meet the eyes of the disciple.

"Heart" is merely another name for the Supreme Spirit, because He is in all hearts. The entire Universe is condensed in the body, and the entire body in the Heart. Thus the Heart is the nucleus of the whole Universe.

12 — 13. Когда человек годен для Само-исследования
благодаря своей непривязанности к объектам чувств
и различению,
Принесут ли какую-либо пользу обряды омовения,
молитва в установленное время, повторение мантр,
жертвы на огне, пение Вед, почитание богов,
Пение песен преданности, паломничество,
жертва, даваемая в милостыню,
и соблюдение специальных духовных практик?
Или всё это будет только тратой времени?
Бхагаван:
14. У пригодных новичков в Само-исследовании,
с привязанностями, подходящими к концу,
Все эти вспомогательные средства
сделают ум всё более и более чистым.
15. Добродетельная активность ума, речи и тела
Уничтожает противоположно направленную,
греховную,
активность ума, речи и тела.
16. Вся эта активность зрелых мастеров,
одаренных умами высочайшей чистоты,
Помогает миру.

17. Зрелые мастера совершают действия
для обучения собственным примером
и благоденствия других,
А не из страха нарушить духовные предписания.
18. О лучший из людей, добродетельные действия,
совершаемые без чувства различия
и без привязанности,
Не препятствуют пути Само-исследования.
19. Неисполнение предписанных действий тем,
кто зрел и постоянно занимается Само-исследованием,
не влечет за собой греха.
Ибо Само-исследование само по себе —
наиболее похвальное и наиболее очищающее
из действий.
20. Два образа жизни наблюдаются у зрелых, пригодных
искателей:
Отказ от действий ради уединенного Общения
и действие для блага других.
