You have to simply become aware of the movement of the mind,
which begins this endless trouble.

You say you wish to be free of desires and expectations.
And it is true: your own desire is disturbing you.
For even noble desires such as the desire to save the world or to be a good person or even to attain liberation can actually distract you from discovering what is truly already here—natural, unbound contentment.
Once you have a desire burning inside, you will be waiting anxiously for it to be fulfilled, and if it is not fulfilled, your anxiety will increase.
So it is good to be open to the possibility of dropping all desires.
Desire promises much but fulfils little.
Though it is possible, most people find it impossible to drop even a single desire as they feel they will lose something precious.
It is like taking a dry bone from a dog.
So rather than telling you to drop desire, I say, find out what it actually promises to give you, and also identify the actual person who will receive it. Don't assume. Find out. Is any of this real?
These questions can feel deeply challenging as they threaten to expose ego's unreality. Very few go beyond to discover their real power as the undivided Self and so put an end to delusion.

Who will rise to this challenge?

One who "knows," knows there is no need for discourse; knowing is enough.

No man can seek the divine because he does not have the capacity for such a search. But when somebody has become ready to disappear, has become ready to be a nobody, has become ready to become an emptiness, then the divine will certainly find him. Only the divine can seek for man, man can never seek the divine because even in seeking, the ego is present.

So a religious person is not one who sets out in search of the divine: a religious person is one who sets out in search of his " I "- and the more he goes on searching, the more he will find that his " I " is not at all there. And the day the " I " no longer remains, on that day the door which is hiding love will open for him.

So I say that the day the shadow of "I" disapears, the day neither " I " nor "you" remains, on that you will no longer have to search for divine - the divine will come searching for you.

Awareness is not affected by agreeable or disagreeable perceptions. It simply stays as it is, in the same way that a mirror when it reflects all forms faithfully and with absolute impartiality, so too an enlightened being clearly perceives all phenomena without his realization of the ultimate nature being affected in any way.

The Buddha is not going to project you to Buddhahood, as if throwing a stone. He is not going to purify you, as if washing a dirty cloth, nor is he going to cure you of ignorance, like a doctor administering medicine to a passive patient. Having attained full enlightenment himself, he is showing you the path, and it is up to you to follow it or not. It is up to you now to practise these teachings and experience their results.

All waters are brooded over by Nârâyana, but every kind of water is not fit for drink. Similarly, though it is true that the Almighty dwells in every place, yet every place is not fit to be visited by man. As one kind of water may be used for washing our feet, another may serve the purpose of ablution, and others may be drunk, and others again may not be touched at all; so there are different kinds of places. We may approach some, we can enter into the inside of others, others we must avoid, even at a distance.

Always at the point of real atomic recognition, the strongest doubt and loudest noise will come.
Don’t panic.
They are phenomena.
You are the witness of both doubt and noise.
They happen in you, not to you.
You forever remain the immaculate Self.

It is easy in the world to live after the world’s opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.

The mind wants to take credit for Awakening. It wants to turn it into an achievement. By being the achiever of enlightenment it retains its identity, pride, separation and deceitfulness.
Find that which is not a doer, not an achiever.
Find That which simply Is.

When you’ve seen beyond yourself then you may find peace of mind - it is waiting there and the time will come when you see we’re all one and life flows on within you and without you.

And men go abroad to admire the heights of mountains, the mighty waves of the sea, the broad tides of rivers, the compass of the ocean, and the circuits of the stars, yet pass over the mystery of themselves without a thought.

Doing as others told me, I was blind.
Coming when others called me, I was lost.
Then I left everyone, myself as well.
Then I found Everyone, Myself as well.

Beyond the beauty of the external forms, there is more here: something that cannot be named, something ineffable, some deep, inner, holy essence. Whenever and wherever there is beauty, this inner essence shines through somehow. It only reveals itself to you when you are present.
