When watching a movie practice to keep the awareness that it is only a movie. Later, practice the same towards your own life.

If you refuse to wake up by my telling you to wake up then you have to do all these sadhanas you have to do all these things. Until you come to the conclusion that there is nobody doing anything. But as long as you believe you’re still a body then you have to do those things that you have to do to find out that there is no body. That’s why all is well. That is why everything is in it’s right place and everything is unfolding as it should. You are where you are because of what you are. So there are no mistakes. You simply wake up and become free.

Eternity isn’t some later time. Eternity isn’t a long time. Eternity has nothing to do with time. Eternity is that dimension of here and now that thinking and time cuts out. This is it. If you don’t get it here you won’t get it anywhere, and the experience of eternity right here and now is the function of life…

It is not good to reason too much. First comes God, and then the world. Realize God first; then you will know all about His world. The thing is that one must love God. Through intense love one attains the vision of Him.

MEETING THE GURU: 'WHEN I SAW HIM, I FORGOT LORD KRISHNA"

My Master's personality was so great that when someone came in contact with him, they could not go away untouched. So, although her nephew didn't believe in God, he still took the mantra from Siddharameshwar Maharaj. When he returned to Bombay, he told me, "When Siddharameshwar Maharaj comes to Bombay, I'll take you to him. You must take the mantra from him." I took his mantra and his bliss automatically came upon me. Although I was a believer in idol gods and I was worshipping them just like a fanatical person, the next day I left them. How? I don't know.

When I saw him I forgot Lord Krishna. That is the greatest thing which I saw in him. So, what I want to say is that when I saw him, I felt very natural, I tell you, and I forgot Lord Krishna, bas! [finished!] After this meeting nothing remained in me. So, in this way I met my Master and by his grace I understood. All honor goes to him and not to me.

Some people ask me, "When will we understand Reality? How will it happen?" It happens if your mind desires it very strongly. So, since I met him that day, I forgot all the words. I realised that the Master is the only person in the world from whom you can get something. His knowledge was so great and simple. He never used big, complicated words and he was a believer that the Vedas – the highest sacred books in India – should be taught to women and children too. He was so sure of his own realization of Reality and he felt that it was everybody's birthright to understand. Only in a human body can you achieve this. Otherwise, animals and birds for example, have no discrimination power, no intellect. Their life force is the same, but the contrivance of discrimination is not there. Only the human body has got the contrivance to discriminate between good and bad, between what is Reality and what is unreal, between what is illusion and what is God.

Q: You are asking me to give up the world, while I want to be happy in the world.

M: If you ask for the impossible, who can help you? The limited is bound to be painful and pleasant in turns. If you seek real happiness, unassailable and unchangeable, you must leave the world with its pains and pleasures behind you.

Q: How is it done?

M: Mere physical renunciation is only a token of earnestness, but earnestness alone does not liberate. There must be understanding which comes with alert perceptivity, eager enquiry and deep investigation. You must work relentlessly for your salvation from sin and sorrow.

Q: What is sin?

M: All that binds you.

There are many ways. All religions give different ways. You must follow your own path. No one can tell you anything.

Do your own work. I am not master of anyone. I am only my own master. Each is his own master. He must discover the master in him from within. This is the secret.

All are my master. I am learning from everyone. I pick from everyone what I want and pass on, and they too. You must experience this and you will know the Truth.

You can't love others-you can only love yourself.

You are God. God sees through your eyes, hears through your ears, speaks through your mouth.

Don't let in God, devas -anyone!

Don't listen to others, not to devas , not to God - only yourself.

What was I thinking? You can know that, but bad to try.
A man may come and praise, or a man may blame. Do no be affected. You are the witness.

Difficulties must come on a man's path. They are a blessing!
Don't have any friends. All are your friends, but have no friends!

See God in everything - in all people. You must do that!
'Thy will be done' - that is the same as Om.
There is only one man in the whole world - only God.
Nothing else, He is everywhere.

Eliminate mental muddiness and obscurity; keep your mind crystal clear. Allow your pure original insight to emerge. Quiet your emotions and abide in serenity. Don't go crazy with the worship of idols, images, and ideas; this is like putting a new head on top of the head you already have. Remember: if you can cease all restless activity, your integral nature will appear.

When you inquire “Who am I?” if you are honest, you’ll notice that it takes you right back to silence instantly. The brain doesn’t have an answer, so all of a sudden there is silence.

Many paths lead from
The foot of the mountain,
But at the peak
We all gaze at the
Single bright moon.

Robert Adams: T-57, "You Have to Have Bhakti" :

S: Robert, I want to ask you a question. Is it possible to realize the Self through a Jnani without a body?

R: Yes.

S: It is?

R: Yes, it is. Because the Jnani is all-pervading. And if you focus your attention on his presence, you'll make contact, if you are sincere enough.

S: So even at a distance one could just focus on your picture for example.

R: It doesn't make any difference.
The only difference is your mind.
Your mind will tell you all sorts of stories.
But if you do not listen to your mind, then the Jnani is everywhere.

People are still getting healings from Ramana Maharshi.
And they claim that he comes into their lives and solves their problems.

For a Jnani there's no time and space.
That's been obliterated.
There is only the Self as omnipresence, so he or she is everywhere.

Of course it's up to you to exude the right energy from yourself, so you make contact.

It's just like grace.
Gods grace is everywhere, but it's up to you to make contact with it.

And of course the easiest way is through devotion, through love.

lies clearly in my heart
and cannot be seen or known to the mind.
As my words turn to silence,
Your sweetness surrounds me.

When you run after your thoughts, you are like a dog chasing a stick: every time a stick is thrown, you run after it. Instead, be like a lion who, rather than chasing after the stick, turns to face the thrower. One only throws a stick at a lion once.
