LOVE IS A ROSEFLOWER. In the morning it is dancing in the wind, in the sun, as if it will remain forever, with such grandeur, with such certainty, with such authority. It is so fragile and yet so strong against the wind, against the rain, against the sun. But by the evening the petals have withered away, and the rose is gone. That does not mean that it was illusiory. It simply means that in life everything is change. And change keeps things new, fresh.

HELL is a state of mind when you live in plenty and yet you live in poverty, when life is such a blessing and yet you live in sadness. When the flowers bloom you don't bloom. When the stars shine you don't shine. When the clouds are in the sky floating in freedom, you don't enjoy the freedom. When the cuckoo calls from a distant wood and you remain deaf. When the peacock dances you don't dance. This is HELL !!! AND YOU ARE THE CREATOR OF IT.

The means used are then nothing more than thought and feeling. We scatter our thoughts in a wholly reckless manner, and we let our emotions change with every few minutes; the power that might be retained by their concentration is usually lost. Our minds are therefore in continuous state of vibration, and but rarely at rest. These are the real causes why we are so tied to the material world that we are blinded by it, and miss the spiritual reality that awaits our attention within the regions of the soul.

I do not believe that GOD has given a monopoly of TRUTH to any of us; the sun is for all alike. No land or race can claim a monopoly of TRUTH, and DIVINE afflatus may descend on men everywhere. No creed has the power to copyright TRUTH.

Coincidence and Accident are terms which carry a meaning only to the blind materialist, not to the spiritually awakened. For an etheric network covers the universe and ties men to men, men to events and event to event.

The hands that pull and guide this strange net are necessarily invisible but they are there. The gods have many servants, and all do not wear the flesh

Without words, what is there to understand? The need for understanding arises from misunderstanding. What I say is true, but to you it is only a theory. How will you come to know that it is true? Listen, remember, ponder, visualize, experience. Also apply it in your daily life. Have pateince with me and above all have patience with yourself, for you are your only obstacel. The way leads through yourself beyond yourself. As long as you believe only the particular to be real, consious and happy and reject the non dual reality as something imagined, an abstract concept, you will find me doling out concepts and abstractions. But once you have touched the real within your own being, you will find me describing what for you is the nearest and the dearest.

There are four people named EVERYBODY, SOMEBODY, ANYBODY and NOBODY ; they are bosom friends.

An important project came up & guruji asked everybody to do it efficiently. EVERYBODY was sure SOMEBODY will do it, ANYBODY could have done it, but NOBODY did it. SOMEBODY got angry about that because it was EVERYBODY's job. EVERYBODY thought ANYBODY could do it but NOBODY realized that EVERYBODY wouldn't do it.

It ended up that EVERYBODY blamed SOMEBODY when NOBODY did what ANYBODY could have done.

One single seed can make the whole earth green. A single BUDDHA can make the whole earth afire with a new consciousness and a new humanity. You are the very hope of a world which is in great anguish. It is not only a question of your individuality, becoming a BUDDHA, it is a question of saving this whole planet. This planet can be saved only by people who understand that every living being is DIVINE.

If you grow by & by , opinions from others become childish. You don't bother about them; what they say is meaningless. It is not what they say that carries meaning. It is you, what you are, that carries the meaning.

It is not that they say, "Beautiful". This is useless. If you are beautiful, that is the point. What they say is irrelevant. What you are - the real, authentic you - that is the individual.

SAMARPAN.......

Self surrender is the Highest and Easiest method for Enlightenment. One who has surrendered himself/herself is always protected by the DIVINE POWER......... One who possess nothing and has no one to protect him/her belongs to GOD and is constantly under the protection of the DIVINE.

If u r simple u will be able to observe urself. A complex person cannot observe himself because he is so divided. He has so many things around him: so many desires, so many thoughts and so many problems arising out of those desires & thoughts. He s continuously in a crowd. It is difficult to attain to self study. Only an austere man eats, sleeps, loves and that is all. He has ample time and ample energy left to observe, just to be, just to sit & look. He sits, looks at himself, closes his eyes watches his own being.
There is not a crowd, nothing much to done. Things are so simple that he can do them easily. And simple things have a quality that even while doing them you can study yourself. Complex things are too much for the mind. It gets too involved & fragmentary and self study becomes impossible.

What is MIND ? Mind is not a thing, but an event. A thing has a substance in it, an event is just a process. A thing is like a rock, an event is like the wave; it exist, but is not substantial. It is just the event between the wind and the ocean; a process, a phenomenon.

So those who have known say that mind is like a bird flying into the sky - no footprints are left behind, not even a trace.

Seek the company of those who are higher than you - higher in wisdom, higher in happiness , higher in tranquility, calmness, quiet, collectedness: always seek the company of the higher because that is how you can become higher, how you can transcend the valleys and reach to the peaks. That become a ladder. Always seek the company of the higher, the beautiful, the happy. Then you will become more beautiful; you will become more happy.

Just start thinking a little, contemplate about what you have been doing, repeating a few unconsious desires, repeating something which never gives you any blissfulness, which always frustrates you. Still you go on as if you are hypnotized.

In fact that's what YOGA says : that we are in deep HYPNOSIS.

Nobody has hypnotized us, we are hypnotized by our own MIND.

Never ask for sympathy.....ask for understanding .
Nodody sympathizes with a happy man. In a society which is unhappy
and consists of miserable people, a happy person is a stranger.
They hurt our ego very much.
With a crucified Jesus you can sympathize : with a happy Jesus
you will feel antagonistic

IGNORANCE.....

An ignorant man is one who ignores.... that's how the world comes. In that way the knowledgeable person is the most ignorant person, because he knows about heaven & hell and he knows nothing about himself. He knows about GOD, but he knows nothing about himself.... who he is ?.....what this consciousness inside is ? He is ignorant because he is ignoring the most fundamental thing in life. He is keeping himself occupied with the non essential.

The unknown is the message of the UPANISHADS.....

Upanishads are concerned with the unkown only as a beginning. They end with the unknowable. The known realm becomes science, the unknown is philosophy, and the unknowable belongs to religion.

Thinking is a quality of your inner being. What does thinking means ?

It means to retain your consiousness, to remain alert and aware , to encounter a problem. A problem is there : you face it with your total awareness. And then there arises an answer - a response.

This is THINKING ........
