Death is extraordinarily like life, when we know how to live. You cannot live without dying. You cannot live if you do not die psychologically every minute.

We should be aware. The most basic precept of all is to be aware of what we do, what we are, each minute.

Tao Te Ching

Empty your mind of all thoughts.
Let your heart be at peace.
Watch the turmoil of beings,
but contemplate their return.

Each separate being in the universe
returns to the common source.
Returning to the source is serenity.

If you don’t realize the source,
you stumble in confusion and sorrow.
When you realize where you come from,
you naturally become tolerant,
disinterested, amused,
kindhearted as a grandmother,
dignified as a king.
Immersed in the wonder of the Tao,
you can deal with whatever life brings you,
and when death comes, you are ready.

Do not seek fame. Do not make plans. Do not be absorbed by activities. Do not think that you know. Be aware of all that is, and dwell in the infinite. Wander where there is no path. Be all that heaven gave you, but act as though you have recieved nothing. Be empty, that is all.

This is your Golden Age
of coming Home to your own Self.
Put down this heavy rucksack of the past.
Even if it’s beautiful put it down.

Don't know anything about yourself,
because everything you seem to know
becomes a kind of a limitation.
Just be.

If you are a true seeker of liberation you’ve got to be willing to stand alone. At the moment of Liberation everything falls away…everything. Suddenly the ground beneath your feet is gone, and you are alone. You are alone because you have directly realized that there is no other, there is no separation. There is only you, only Self, only limitless emptiness, pure consciousness.

To the mind, the ego, this appears terrifying. When the mind looks at limitlessness and infinity, it projects meaninglessness and despair. To the ego Absolute Freedom can look terrifying. But when the mind is let go of, the view changes from meaningless despair and fear to the unending joy and wonder of Liberation.

In Liberation, you stand alone. You stand alone because you need no supports of any kind. You need no supports because you have realized that the very notion of a separate you no longer exists; that there is nothing to support; that the whole ego experience was a flimsy illusion. So you stand alone but never, never lonely because everywhere you look, all you see is That, and You are That.

In your practice you should accept everything as it is, giving to each thing the same respect given to a Buddha. Then Buddha bows to Buddha, and you bow to yourself. This is the true bow.

There’s only one effectively redemptive sacrifice, the sacrifice of self-will to make room for the knowledge of God.

Many times I say learn the art of love, but what I really mean is: Learn the art of removing all that hinders love. It is a negative process. It is like digging a well: You go on removing many layers of earth, stones, rocks, and then suddenly there is water. The water was always there; it was an undercurrent. Now you have removed all the barriers, the water is available. So is love: Love is the undercurrent of your being. It is already flowing, but there are many rocks, many layers of earth to be removed. That’s what I mean when I say learn the art of love. It is really not learning love but unlearning the ways of unlove.

Don't look for me in a human shape,

Realise that the scenes that expand before you in the form of the world are just concepts of the mind. Otherwise, see the world as the form of God.

Those who ask 'where is God? He is not visible,' should enquire `Who am I? Where am I? and meet God there [ where the answer is found ]

To see him is to be consumed by him. Without turning inwards and merging in the lord, His light that shines within the mind and lends it all the light, how can we know the Light of Lights with the borrowed light of the mind?

The Sutra of Hui Neng

Two monks were arguing about a flag, and the Sixth Chan Patriarch [Hui Neng] overheard them.

First monk: “The flag is moving.”

Second monk: “The wind is moving.”

The Sixth Patriarch: “Not the wind, not the flag. Mind is moving.”

Lao Tzu

Nothing in the world
is as soft and yielding as water.
Yet for dissolving the hard and inflexible,
nothing can surpass it.
The soft overcomes the hard;
the gentle overcomes the rigid.
Everyone knows this is true,
but few can put it into practice.
Therefore the Master remains
serene in the midst of sorrow.
Evil cannot enter her heart.
Because she has given up helping,
she is people’s greatest help.
True words seem paradoxical.

It's beyond the duality of desire and desirelessness;
It's beyond the duality of action and non-action.
If there's only the limitless One, all is Shiva;
What, then, may be considered "without" or "within"?

Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi

The Lord of the universe bears the whole burden. You only imagine that you do. You can hand over all your burdens to Him. Whatever you have to do, you will be made an instrument for doing it at the right time. Do not imagine that you cannot do it unless you have the desire to. It is not desire that gives you the necessary strength. The strength is the Lord’s.

Boredom, anger, sadness, or fear are not “yours,” not personal. They are conditions of the human mind. They come and go. Nothing that comes and goes is you.

If you want to go all the way, throw all away.
And right there, there is a joy, a freedom and lightness.
Strip everything back to nothing.
Throw your attachments, your desires, your needs and immediately you are in a state of total freshness. Total wholeness.
Every human being should do this once in a while.
The serious seeker develops this unsparing attitude to free their minds from the cholesterol of egoic identity.
Be in that emptiness and you see that emptiness is completeness.
And the more you do it, the more you enjoy the effortlessness of it all.
Now, you ignore the voice of the interpreter, the journalist, the accountant or the mathematician and in a short while, you won’t want him back.
If you want to go all the way,
throw all away.

Abide as That in which there are no Holy Scriptures or sacred books, no one who thinks, no objection or answer to it, no theory to be established, no theory to be rejected, nothing other than one Self - and be always happy, free from the least trace of thought.

Evil is the shadow of inattention. In the light of self-awareness it will wither and fall off.

With no expectation from the memory, point the mind towards it's Source. Stop thinking, and wait for the result from the other side.

Don't worry about the ego. Just know, you are not the ego. The most important thing is to discover that it is watched, which means: You cannot be it.
Therefore, don't identify with it. Then it starves from lack of attention and soon falls away.
Your victory is in recognizing that you are only the sense of presence, which announces itself through the feeling: I am. Let the 'I Am' - presence stay by itself consciously until it becomes effortless. That is when you feel or say 'I', it automatically means the presence or Being.

You say: “He lost his life” or “my life,” as if life were something that you can possess or lose. The truth is: you don’t have a life, You Are Life. The One Life, the one consciousness that pervades the entire universe and takes temporary form to experience itself as a stone or blade of grass, as an animal, a person, a star or a galaxy.

The Self is not an event. It is eternally unchanging.
However, hold in your heart the possibility that the recognition of it can happen, inside the heart at any moment. I say this so that your mind does not cheat you again by postponing your chance. Your coming and being here is your heart's response and resolve to dive within and secure the victory.
Go all the way through.
It's not somewhere else.
It's right here.
It is you.

When I say leave everything alone, leave the world alone, leave people alone, I'm speaking of mentally.
Do not sit at home or sit at the office and think about all the people who have hurt you, of all the things that are wrong someplace, drop it.
Keep the mind quiet.
When the mind starts to fight you.
When the mind starts to think about other things, you can say,
""All is Well"."
This will remind the mind that everything is okay just the way it is.
