pointers towards man's true nature
"all and everything is just happening by itself, but one believes that one is the doer. this belief of doership creates a mess. the more one wants to do, the more one creates a mess for oneself."
"thy will be done means the wish of the supreme should be fulfilled, not mine. that is the way of a meditator, or a seeker, or the one who is keen to realize the self or god."
"the real you is impossible to define... cannot be described. the real you is indescribable, unthinkable, unimaginable. it is vaster than the sky."
"to attain true understanding, you need to ask the right question first. and this is the only real question to ask - how do i know that i am."
"before you know god, you must know yourself."
"whatever one does, one remains insecure! if such is the factuality, then why no accept the fact of insecurity... rather, also enjoy it!"
"only serious people create problems. whenever you have problems, take a look in the mirror… and see how serious you are! if you are non-serious, you cannot do anything wrong because all wrong comes out of seriousness."
"you are searching for god, or maybe something else. this search begins with birth itself. that is what life is all about. everybody is running and searching in his own way. somebody is running after money, somebody after women… somebody after name-fame. but beyond all that mess… who are you?
"god is not residing only in you, he is residing in everyone. god pervades all. everything is in god. everything is god. and what is god?... this very “am-ness” is god…"
"sometimes when you are angry, you shout at others, “don’t you know who i am!” but do you know who you are?"
"if you fight with the mind, the mind will enjoy; it will gain more strength, more energy. allow it. like the breeze is coming, so let it come. it will come from this side, and go from that side. mind will come, mind will go; complaint will come, complaint will go; demand will come, demand will go – don’t get caught, that’s all. let it come, let it go… let it come, let it go. You cannot stop it, so don’t struggle. just be. be present. learn how to be present."
" consciousness, which is reflected through the body, which is “body-sense,” is called “ego.” like when you see the moon in the night, and if you keep this glass of water in the open, the moon will be reflected in the glass. so is this ego… a reflection of the true Self in the body."
"i am not saying condemn your mind, or don’t pay any attention to your mind. on the contrary, i tell you, whatsoever comes in the mind, just allow it, just be with it. but at the same time, i am telling you, don’t get involved. so it is a great learning, how to allow, and at the same time, not get involved."
"on the periphery, things are complex; deep down things are very simple."
"self-forgetfulness is the very root cause of all sorts of conflicts."
"if thinking needs to be done, then think properly and consciously; make thinking and contemplation a conscious meditation; just don’t let the thoughts flow, think mindfully, consciously."
"the day someone absorbs the grace of his master, lets himself disappear in to the master, then he becomes able to perceive and understand the actual, inherent meaning of his master’s teachings, exactly as they are; then he does not need to hide behind the shield of his master’s statements."
"keep struggling until you succeed, until you get the desired result. it may take few weeks, few months, few years – or even few lives. it all depends on you – on how persistent and determined you are."
"please note that everything else is just happening... except self-remembering. self-remembering one has to practice. you cannot hire someone else for self-remembering."
"self-remembering does not require doership. self-remembering is the antidote to forgetfulness, it destroys forgetfulness."
"though self-remembrance is the easiest, but it is arduous for many people! so they go on practicing various techniques, they become technique freaks!"
"so simply pay constant attention to the sense of amness. that is what self-remembering is. the self is not somewhere, it is always here and now."
""remember... god, who is nowhere and who can't be seen, also needs attention. ho jaaye! "
