Amma - Mata Amritanandamayi Devi

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.

You are the secret. You are the wide opened. Do not look for the remedy for your troubles outside yourself. You are the medicine. You are the cure for your own sorrow.

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.

Devotee: “It is said that the Mahatma looks upon all with the same kindness. Why then do they tenderly receive some, reply to some and not to others, when asked, shout at some and show indifference towards others?”
Bhagavan: “Yes. All the children are the same for the father. He wishes them all well. Hence he treats them with love and anger according to their propensities, and thus gives them training. Children who are gentle, remain aloof with fear and do not ask for anything; they should be cajoled with love and tenderness and given whatever they want. Those who are bold, ask for and take whatever they want. Those who are vagrant should be reprimanded and kept in their proper places. Those who are stupid should be neglected and left to fend for themselves. In the same manner Mahatmas have to be loving or harsh according to the merits of the devotees.”

It is more important
to know who you are
than to know
who God is.
Because
you cannot know God
before knowing
your own self.
However,
as you search for God,
curiously,
you begin to discover
your own Self;
For your real Self
is not separate from God.
Ultimately,
both the seeker
and the sought
merge.
