Whatever comes, don’t push it away. When it goes, do not grieve.
As your satsang deepens, the debris starts floating to the surface bringing much discomfort to the body – mind. Now is not the time for therapy or analysis. Simply leave it to the Sovereign Power whose benevolence washes away all delusion. Remember this!
Don’t worry about anything at all. You are not here by accident. This form is just a costume for a while. But the one who is behind the costume, this one is eternal. You must know this. If you know this and trust this, you don’t have to worry about anything.
One should not excessively seek partners or friends, one should seek to know and be oneself. As you begin to awaken to the truth, you start noticing how well life flows by itself and how well you are cared for.
Live by the light of your own heart…but make sure this heart is silent and empty.
You have to see and meet God in this life. Don’t let this life go by and miss discovering the Supreme One. You will find him inside as your constant being. Pray: Holy Mother, holy father, holy spirit, don’t give me the illusion that even one second belongs to me. All is you. I, also, am you and yours. For only like this does your life stand the chance to be miraculous.
Once you begin to recognize the divine gifts in life, you come to see that there are so many. Your life is abundant.
There is a presence, a silence, a stillness which is here by itself. There is no doer of it, no creator of this stillness. It is simply here in you, with you. It is the fragrance of your own self. There is nothing to do about this, it is naturally present. This fragrance of peace, this spaciousness, it is the fragrance of your own being.
If you make human company too important you will not discover your True Self.
If you take yourself to be the body and mind only, you will die! When you discover yourself as awareness, the fear of death will not trouble you any longer.
You are unchanging manifesting as the changefulness.
The ways of the mind are ancient but your Self is timeless.
Never assume that you have attained truth. Don’t make any claim to knowledge. Form no conclusion or evaluation concerning truth. The minute you do, your downfall is assured.
There have been many yogis who have been doing these things, or have been having these experiences for years – and now they are searching for freedom.
Relationships not based in truth are never entirely reliable and are rarely enduring.
Whenever you imagine you know something, you cease being open to the living exploration. You have closed a door and cut off the oxygen to the breathing truth.
Take courage. Being free is neither difficult nor distant. I know it has often been conceived, perceived and presented to be rare, remote and difficult, but all that is delusion – a great seeming. I don’t know why awakening happens in one heart so completely and in another there is some delay or postponement. I am not deeply concerned about this. But I know that the voice that calls you is true, and where you are being called to is real and true. Heaven is inside your own heart. This is why I am here.
You say you want to get rid of the noise, but you and the noise go together. You have to be you without ‘you’ and all noise will stop. The real you is the formless witness within. The person, the noisy one, is only imagined. To recognize this is freedom.
The sage sees only the Self. The person sees lots of persons. One sees from wholeness, one sees from fragmentation. Both are you.
Feelings are just visitors, let them come and go.
Don’t be a storehouse of memories. Leave past, future and even present thoughts behind. Be a witness to life unfolding by itself. Be free of all attachments, fears and concerns by keeping your mind inside your own heart. Rest in being. Like this, your life is always fresh and imbued with pure joy and timeless presence. Be happy, wise, and free.
Throw everything away, forget about it all! You are learning too much, remembering too much, trying too hard…relax a little bit, give life a chance to flow its own way, unassisted by your mind and effort. Stop directing the river’s flow.
Life supports the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual needs of the one who is open to self discovery. Trust opens your eyes to the recognition of this. Surrender allows you to merge in your own eternal being.
Who can count how many lives we have tasted? Look at the stars. How old are they? And a star is not even sentient. You are sentient. How can you be less in age than a star? You don’t know at all. What you do know is that right now you exist and are here. All take this for granted. However, what should be known is what you are here as. And if what you are here as is clear, who knows this? You want to learn about so many things, but about yourself, you are not sure.
Taking time to discover yourself is the best use of time. Prioritize this.
Sometimes, grace throws you and your ‘world’ into the washing machine, full spin, so that the fearful and controlling tendency is compelled to offer itself to the totality – to the will and dance of the cosmos.
I don’t have to be anything at all. I don’t even have to be myself, because there is no such thing as not being myself. I am inescapably myself.
Eternity is not endless time, eternity means timeless.
