He who has the Beloved in his heart,
he is fulfilled with his Love.
No need he has for formality,
he just enjoys his ecstasy.

He who is stricken by Love
sings and dances out of tune.

The state of being is permanent and the body and world are not. They are fleeting phenomena passing on the screen of being-consciousness which is eternal and stationary.

f you ask your right from the Father, He will give it to you. To those devotees who urge, He comes. That is what He wants. His whole creation is intended to disillusion you, and thus cause you to draw back to Him.

You have to awaken, now.
And let go of the dream world.
Many of you are so concerned with your future.
You're so worried about your past.
You have all sorts of plans in your mind.
You're conditioned to believe this, to believe that.
This is what is keeping you back from waking up.
You must let go, in it's entirety, of any hold the world has on you.
You have to stand naked before God.
In the last analyses you have to be your Self without the help of books, teachers, systems, governments, religions.
You have to step out of that rut of your conditioning.
Become totally unconditioned, as if you were just born.
Reading too many books simply adds to the confusion.

The greater part of human pain is unnecessary. It is self-created as long as the unobserved mind runs your life.

Internal and external are ultimately one. When you no longer perceive the world as hostile, there is no more fear, and when there is no more fear, you think, speak and act differently. Love and compassion arise, and they affect the world.

When another person makes you suffer, it is because he suffers deeply within himself, and his suffering is spilling over. He does not need punishment; he needs help. That’s the message he is sending.

There are levels in consciousness, but not in awareness. It is of one block, homogeneous. It's reflection in the mind is love and understanding. There are levels of clarity in love and intensity in love, but not in their source. The source is simple and single, but the gifts are infinite. Only do not take the gifts for the source. Realize yourself as the source and not the river; that is all.

The ‘I amness’ is pulsating ‘I am, I am’. The feeling of ‘I amness’
is there because of the essence of the food body and vital breath,
when these are gone the pulsation of ‘I amness’ will not be there.
Beingness goes into no-beingness.

Because of the knowledge ‘I am’ we conduct all activities. In the
morning when you wake up you get the first guaranty, that
conviction of ‘I am’. Then because you are not in a position to
sustain or tolerate that ‘I amness’ you bestir yourself. You get up and move around here and there and the activity starts.

That attention of ‘I amness’ is always there in the waking state, but
we are not alert to watch it. There is no other attention to be
followed. Be attentive to that attention ‘I am’.

Mourning is not the index of true love. It betrays love of the object, of its shape only. That is not love. True love is shown by the certainty that the object of love is in the Self and that it can never become non-existent.

Свет Высшей Милости
Являет собой Торжествующий Храм Мудрости,
Вознаграждающий преданных Милостью и Силой.
Рамалинга Свамигал,
«Свет Высшей Милости», песнь 1, гл.4

Все явления, которые вы видите, есть торжество этого Света, его манифестация и игра.
«Единый вкус» – это видение торжества Абсолюта за всеми явлениями. Тот, кто понял этот принцип, является непобедимым йогином. Он может делать путем любую практику и ситуацию.
Кто раскрывает торжество Абсолюта в страданиях, клешах, в негативных ситуациях таким же равностным образом, как и в позитивных ситуациях, тот йогин реализовал самый глубокий уровень недвойственности. Кто раскрывает тождество торжества Абсолюта как в возможности творчески проявить себя, так и в полной невозможности творчески себя проявить, тот является йогином, по¬настоящему реализовавшим «единый вкус».
Кто реализовал тождество, когда проявляются достижения, знаки и способности, и когда они вообще не проявляются, а есть одни препятствия, и даже нет намека на продвижение, тот является йогином, по¬настоящему постигшим «единый вкус» недвойственности.
Тогда этот Торжествующий Храм Мудрости вознаграждает преданных милостью и силой.
Один христианин ждал, пока в деревне не начнется голод – он хотел пострадать за Христа. Наконец, через несколько лет голод в деревне начался. Все жители в деревне были подавлены. А этот святой юродивый ходил и постоянно радовался, воздавая хвалу Богу. Люди спрашивали его: «Чему же ты радуешься?». Он говорил: «Это же так здорово – есть возможность пострадать за Христа».
Для него это было способом в трудных условиях проявить свою любовь к Абсолюту или обнажить ее. Такое его состояние явно указывает на то, что он реализовал «единый вкус» всех явлений. То, что ввергает обычного человека в страдания, вызывает углубление присутствия и блаженства у йогина высшей квалификации.
Только неофита с неочищенным умом, сильными клешами и привязанностями надо подбадривать в трудные минуты, потому что неофит совсем еще не понимает, что к чему. Но йогин в момент трудностей безошибочно распознает их как проявление яростных игр Абсолюта и берет из этих проявлений самую большую пользу для себя. Внутри у него даже сердце поет: «Вот это да! Вот это варджные шактипатхи! Вот это гневный даршан! Где еще такое получишь? И не надо в места силы идти. Не надо идти на кладбище ворошить смашан».
Вот так йогин воспринимает любые ситуации, когда ему становится трудно или когда он сталкивается с препятствиями или какими¬то ограничениями, когда нет возможности чего¬-то добиться; и его надежда и страх разрушаются, его цели просто разрушаются и просто самоосвобождаются; когда он, долго практикуя, работая, не получает ни знаков реализации, ни каких­то результатов; когда он уже подходит к грани отчаяния. Его эго уже подошло к грани отчаяния, а он наблюдает и видит это, и понимает, что, в принципе, отчаяние – это тоже двойственный фактор эгоизма. Даже из этого можно извлечь пользу, углубить свое недвойственное состояние. И вот когда йогин переходит эту черту, наступает момент, и он видит, что нет вообще ничего во вселенной, что могло бы его поколебать или смутить. Он утвердился в таком огромном пространстве радости и свободы, которое не зависит вообще ни от каких условий, он реализовал «единый вкус», подобно Агни, когда все, что ни появляется, является дровами в костре его осознавания.
Вот на этом этапе открывается Свет Высшей Милости, о котором говорил Рамалинга.

Some tips for the seeker of Truth:
Take a few breaths
in That which is breathless.
You are not data-based.
You are emptiness.
Get out of your own way.
Know and be your instant-ness.
Fall inside your own ocean of Being.
Burn in the fire
of your own yes to the Real.
True seeing - your sharpest sword.
Don't be in what you are seeing; be in your seeing Being.

When you practice Self-Inquiry and follow the thoughts back to its source, the whole secret is to realize, there is no source to your thoughts.
It is only the source that exist, but there is no source for your thoughts, for your body, for your mind.
That has no source.
For Brahman is self-contained absolute reality.
There are no thoughts in Brahman.
Brahman is not a source.
Brahman is something beyond words and thoughts.
Something that you alone can experience.
In other words Brahman can be experienced.
Not as anything you're aware of now, not as a person, place or thing but as life experiences itself.
Ponder these things deeply.

IT IS THE MIND THAT IMAGINES THAT IT DOES NOT KNOW AND
THEN COMES TO KNOW.......

All talk of ‘gnana’ (knowledge) is a sign of ignorance. It is the mind that imagines that it does not know and then comes to know. Reality knows nothing of these contortions. Even the idea of God as the Creator is false. Do I owe my being to another being? Because ‘I am’ all ‘is’.

My teacher told me to hold on to the sense ‘I am’ tenaciously and
not to swerve from it even for a moment. I did my best to follow
his advice and in a comparatively short time I realized within
myself the truth of his teaching. All I did was to remember his
teaching, his face, his words constantly. This brought an end to the
mind, in the stillness of the mind I saw myself as I am – unbound.

A Sage does not belong to this world or to the universe.
Therefore a Sage does not become interested in healing or this would put a Sage on a plane of relativity.
We will not judge who is a Sage or who is not.
But the fact remains in Advaita Vedanta we do not try to heal people.
By your very presence healings may take place, just by being.
This is why it's so important to work on yourself, transcending your body and the world, going beyond health, sickness, wealth, poverty, good, bad, going beyond this duality.
And coming to the place where there is ultimate oneness.
Where you have become pure being.

I have no desire for wealth or possessions, and so I have nothing. I do not experience the initial suffering of having to accumulate possessions, the intermediate suffering of having to guard and keep up possessions, nor the final suffering of losing the possessions.
