Lord Krishna said:
The Lord (Ishwar) dwells in the hearts and mind of all beings but but all individuals are hounded by the illusions of the physical world.
One should try to seek the refuge of the Lord with deep sense of devotion, so that by his grace one can get the everlasting peace of mind.
BG:Ch18:V61,62

God dwells in you, as you, and you don't have to 'do' anything to be God-realized or Self-realized, it is already your true and natural state. Just drop all seeking, turn your attention inward, and sacrifice your mind to the One Self radiating in the Heart of your very being. For this to be your own presently lived experience, Self-Inquiry is the one direct and immediate way.

Don't trust what you have been taught, what you think, what you believe, what you hope. Deeper than that, trust the silence of your being.

The mind can be compared to a pendulum. Like the incessant movement of a clock's pendulum, the mind swings intermittently from happiness to sorrow and back again. Real peace and happiness can be experienced only when the mind stops swinging altogether. From that stillness ensues real peace and bliss, and this state is truly the essence of life.

The Way is perfect like vast space,
With nothing wanting, nothing superfluous.
It is indeed due to making choice
That its suchness is lost sight of.

If in thirst you drink water from a cup, you see God in it. Those who are not in love with God will see only their own faces in it.

I do not say that you must keep on rejecting thoughts. If you cling to yourself, to the ‘I-thought’, and your interest keeps you to that single thought, other thoughts will get rejected and will automatically vanish.

Q: It is, no doubt, very gratifying to hear that one is the silent witness as well as the universal energy. But how is one to cross over from a verbal statement to direct knowledge? Hearing is not knowing.

M: Before you can know anything directly, non-verbally, you must know the knower.

So far, you took the mind for the knower, but it is just not so. The mind clogs you up with images and ideas, which leave scars in memory. You take remembering to be knowledge.

True knowledge is ever fresh, new, unexpected. It wells up from within. When you know what you are, you also are what you know. Between knowing and being there is no gap.

Take the example of someone getting angry at you for no reason. For a normal person it is difficult to remain calm and undisturbed in such a situation. But you should use your discrimination in order to keep your mind well under control. For this to happen, introspection is needed. To accept the anger as a blessing sent by the Lord in order to test your patience, or to ignore and remain unaffected, one needs sharp discrimination. In both cases a sadhak (seeker) must make a conscious and continuous effort in order to proceed towards the ultimate goal.

Joy and sorrow, life and death, they all are real to the man in bondage; to me, they are all in the show, as unreal as the show itself. I may perceive the world just like you, but you believe to be in it, while I see it as an iridescent drop in the vast expanse of consciousness.

Whatever comes, do not push away, whatever goes, do not grieve. Everything appears just like clouds floating by; they just come and go. Stay only as the unmoving Awareness. Awareness and Truth are one.

First of all, you need to know that an emotion is only that—an emotion—even though it may be a big, strong one. You are so much bigger, so much more than this emotion.

The spiritual man, ever watchful for freedom, safeguards it by meditation. When the will is free, it vibrates in harmony with the Infinite. Man’s will is then God’s will.
Blind renunciation of material objects does not insure freedom; it is by enjoying the bliss of Spirit in meditation and by comparing it with the lesser joy of the senses that the devotee becomes eager to follow the spiritual path

Christ is deceiving you. Buddha is deceiving you.
I am deceiving you. If you speak, you lie. It is inexpressible.

Think well before you resolve on action. These are three constituents of action-production, destruction, and value.

Assess the quality and measure before you act.

If you want to know anything, just see people-they will tell you.

I see God everywhere. I worship everywhere. All are God.

I can say that, because I don't know.

All is Brahman. That is bhakti!

You don't want power. Power will come of itself.

He who is in devoted pursuit of Truth, endures hunger, thirst, fatigue, and the harm done by others.

Buddha had the desire to teach and so he came down and struggled and spoke and then returned up and went beyond, having satisfied his desire.

Christ also came and had the idea of suffering. So he suffered and went on. But people are just the same.

No use preaching. Just be!

The 'I Am' is the sum total of all that you perceive, it's time-bound. The 'I Am' itself is an illusion. You are not the 'I Am' you are prior to it...

There is no investigation into the Atman. The investigation can only be to the non-Self. Elimination of the non-Self is alone possible. The Self being always self-evident will shine forth of itself.

Give your heart and mind to brooding over the ’I am’, what is it, how is it, what is its source, its life, its meaning? It is very much like digging a well. You reject all that is not water, till you reach the life-giving spring. All you need is already within you, you only must approach your self with reverence and love.
