You only have the privilege to perceive... Incubate in your Self, don't know anything... You stay empty.

The Tao begets the One,
The One begets the two,
The two begets the three and
The three begets the ten thousand things.
All things are backed by the shade,
Faced by the light,
And harmonized by the immaterial breath.

O mind, you wander far in search of bliss, not knowing your natural state of freedom. You will regain your home of infinite bliss, only if you go back the way you came.

The ego image moves reflected in the mind's waves. How to stop this movement, how to regain the state of stillness? Don't observe these movements, seek the Self, instead. It is wisdom to gain and abide in silence.

I shall assert with certainty, that when the mind as thoughts has ceased to function, it remains as a temple of Awareness-Bliss, hidden till then behind the veil of time.

I was a learned fool. My flawed mind knew nothing till I came to dwell with Him whose glance filled my heart with the light of awareness. Dwelling in that gracious state of peace, whose nature is holy silence, so hard to gain and know, I entered into union with the deathless state of the knowledge of Reality.

Contemplate this: there is no such thing as a true belief.

Question: You say one can realize the Self by a search for it. What is the character of this search?

Bhagavan: You are the mind or think that you are the mind. The mind is nothing but thoughts. Now behind every particular thought there is a general thought, which is the 'I', that is yourself. Let us call this 'I' the first thought. Stick to this 'I'-thought and question it to find out what it is. When this question takes strong hold on you, you cannot think of other thoughts.

Question: When I do this and cling to my self, that is, the 'I'-thought, other thoughts come and go, but I say to myself 'Who am I ?' and there is no answer forthcoming. To be in this condition is the practice. Is it so?

Bhagavan: This is a mistake that people often make. What happens when you make a serious quest for the Self is that the `I'-thought disappears and something else from the depths takes hold of you and that is not the 'I' which commenced the quest.

Question: What is this something else?

Bhagavan: That is the real Self, the import of 'I'. It is not the ego. It is the Supreme Being itself.

Uninterrupted and whole-minded concentration on the Self, our true, non-dual Being, this is silence, pure, supreme, the goal; Not the lazy mind’s inertia, which is but a state of dark illusion.

Keep quiet. Do your work in the world, but inwardly keep quiet. Then all will come to you. Do not rely on your work for realization. It may profit others, but not you. Your hope lies in keeping silent in your mind and quiet in your heart.

Refuse attention to things, let things come and go. Desires and thoughts are also things. Disregard them. Since immemorial time, the dust of events was covering the clear mirror of your mind, so that only memories you could see. Brush off the dust before it has time to settle, this will lay bare the old layers until the true nature of your mind is discovered. It is all very simple and comparatively easy, be earnest and patient, that is all. Dispassion, detachment, freedom from desire and fear, from all self-concern, mere awareness, free from memory and expectation, this is the state of mind to which discovery can happen. After all, liberation is but the freedom to discover.

You don’t have to set aside a time for meditation. You can do it while you’re driving your car, while you’re at work, while you’re playing music. Just be aware of yourself, of who you really are, and realize the rest is a projection of your mind.

The total is open and available, but you will not take it. You are attached to the little person you think yourself to be. Your desires are narrow, your ambitions petty. After all, without a center of perception, where would the manifested be? Unperceived, the manifested is as good as the unmanifested. And you are the perceiving point, the non-dimensional source of all dimensions. Know yourself as the total.

There is a thread from the heart to the lips
where the secret of life is woven.
Words tear the thread
but in silence
the secrets

Q: How do I come to know that I have achieved perfection?
M: You cannot know perfection – you can know only imperfection. For knowledge to be, there must be separation and disharmony. You can know what you are not, but you cannot know your real being. You can only be what you are. The entire approach is through understanding, which is in the seeing of the false as false. But to understand, you must observe from outside.

You are Self here and now. Leave the mind alone, stand aware and unconcerned and you will realize that to stand alert but detached, watching events come and go, is an aspect of your real nature.

The mind has got a gun to your head,
but only because you think
you have a head to put a gun to.

You have to keep up the enquiry, ‘To whom is this happening?’ all the time. If you are having trouble remind yourself, ‘This is just happening on the surface of my mind. I am not this mind or the wandering thoughts’. Then go back into enquiry ‘Who am I?’. By doing this you will penetrate deeper and deeper and become detached from the mind. This will only come about after you have made an intense effort.

What is That which is not the mind?
It is not the thinking faculty.
It is not time, memory nor the powers of imagination.
It is not the form. It is not the senses.
It is not even the dynamic consciousness,
because it is without limitation.
When it is referred to ‘It’, that which refers to ‘it’, what is that?
And where is it?
And who are you?
Are they two different components?
That which says ’ Only this is’ and that which effortlessly Is, are they different?
You must contemplate these things time and again.
Such contemplation is going to turn the mind into a desert and the heart into an oasis.

Inquire,
‘To whom does this mind come?’
‘To whom does the body come?’
‘To whom do the thoughts come?’
‘Where did ‘I’ come from?’
‘Who am I?’
This is what you should be doing most of the day.

Awareness is ever there.
It need not be realized.
Open the shutter of the mind, and it will be flooded with light.

The word ‘God’ has become empty of meaning through thousands of years of misuse. I use it sometimes, but I do so sparingly. By misuse, I mean that people who have never ever glimpsed the realm of the sacred, the infinite vastness behind that word, use it with great conviction, as if they know what they are talking about. Or they argue against it, as if they know what they are denying.
