With GOD , your life really begins. You start pulsating on new plane, radiating joy. Your life takes the color of the rainbow; you are all the colors, the whole spectrum. Your life becomes music, all the notes; you become an orchestra. Each moment it goes deeper, becomes more and more sweet. You start having a love affair with existence for the first time.

Knowing GOD, your life starts soaring high for the first time, you have wings. Minus GOD you are just crawling in the mud. The flight of the alone to the alone becomes possible.

One is not aware of who one is, one is not aware of from where one is, one is not aware of where one is going. One is not aware of why one is at all, why this whole existence is. One simply goes on like a robot, doing things, managing somehow.

Man is so unconscious that he is not even conscious of his unconsciousness.

The secret of success in life lies in keeping the head above the storm of heart. A successful man never allows his faculty of discirmination and judgement to be disturbed by the rising tides of his mental emotions. When emotions and impulses start dictating our actions, we sink to the level of the animals. To mould one's destiny is the privilege of the man of cultivated will and not of the animals of natural unique impulses.

Spirituality is very necessary to keep oneself alive. Having understood what is what, you come to the conclusion that death is also an illusion. A jnani is one who abides in the Absolute, who is the Absolute only. Only a jnani knows that everything is not, everything will not be, and everything has never been. For a jnani, individuality has been liquidated completely; there is only manifest consciousness, which is ample and plenty for him.

The world around us is full of ptoential disturbances that we cannot eliminate. The neighbhors, the traffic, loud music in shops and restaurants, litter on the streets, our families, our colleagues, our friends - anything can impinge on us at any moment. And these are only the small things ......we can live in peace within ourselves, remembering that we have the right and the capacity to remain undisturbed.....that s through Meditation.

In your silence - when there are no words, no language, nobody else is present - you are getting in tune with existence. This sereinty, this silence, this aloneness will bring you immnese rewards. It will allow you to grow to your full potential. For the first time you will be an individual, for the first time have the touch and the taste of freedom, and for the first time the immensity, the unboundedness of existence will be yours with all its blissfulness. It is going to take you to the ultimate peak of ecstasies.

There are many keys in life which can open the doors of treasures even today, unfortunately we neither know anything about these treasures nor about the locks which may be opened. And if we do not know either about the treasures or the locks, the what is left in our hands cannot even be called a key. It can only be a key if it opens a lock. This key has left a sort of lingering of fragrance in the unconscious mind of man.

Surrender, all will be well. Throw all responsibilities on to GOD. If one surrender to God, there will be no cause for anxiety. If you are protected by God, you must be able to abide by his will and not grieve over whether things go as you would wish or not. If your desires are fulfilled, do not be elated, and if you are frustrated, do not be disappointed. The elation may be deceptive and should be checked, for initial joy may end in grief.

You know all those tricks we play upon ourselves and upon others-if you are clever enough to play tricks upon others. So there is this immense suffering brought by man against man. We bring suffering to the animals, we kill them, we eat them, we have destroyed species after species because our love is fragmented. We love GOD and kill human beings.

When you suffer, psychologically, remain with it completely without a single movement of thought. Then you will see out of that suffering comes that strange thing called passion. And if you have no passion of that kind you cannot be creative. Out of that suffering comes compassion. And that energy differs totally from the mechanistic energy of thought.

Dogmas - religious, political, scientific - arises out of the erroneous belief that thought can encapsulate reality or the truth. Dogmas are collective conceptual prisons. And the strange thing is that people love their prison cells because they give them a sense of security and a false sense of " i know."

Society is always in a stage of degeneration. There is no perfect society. The perfect society may exist in theory, but not in actuality. Society is based on human relationship motivated by greed, envy, acquisitiveness, fleeting joy, the persuit of power, and so on. You can't improve envy; envy has to cease. To put a civilized coating on voilence through the double-talk of ideals, is not to bring violence to an end.

Integrated life and action is education.

Education is not merely a matter of imparting a technique which will equip the child to get a job, but it is to help him discover what it is he loves to do. This love cannot exist if he is seeking success, fame or power; and to help the child under stand this is education.

Self knowledge is education.

Truth cannot be thought about, it has to be seen. It is a question of attaining a new perspective, it is a question of opening new eyes. The ordinary eyes won't do, the ordinary eyes only look outwards. Just hidden behind these eyes is the capacity to look in. One becomes a seer when one starts looking inwards. And to look inwards is the only way to know oneself, god, truth - they are different names of the same reality.

Belief is always closed, always finished. The beauty of experience is that it is always open, because further exploration is possible. While you are living, how can your experience be finished ? Your experience is growing, changing. It is continuously moving from the know into the unknown and from the unknown into the unknowable.

The whole art of MEDITATION consists of only one thing : creating gaps, creating windows, so that you can look without words, so that your eyes are empty and you can look through that emptiness. In that emptiness one becomes aware of the immense beauty of existence, of the silence that surrounds it and of the great music which is constantly there.

As long as the egoic mind is running your life, you cannot truly be at ease; you cannot be at peace or fulfilled except for brief intervals when you obtained what you wanted, when a craving has just been fulfilled. Since the ego is a derived sense of self, it needs to identify with external things. It needs to be both defended and fed constantly. The most common ego identifications have todo with possessions, the work you do, social status and recognition, knowledge and education, physical appearance, special abilities, relationships, personal and family history, belief systems and often also political, nationalistic, racial, religious, and other collective identifications. None of these is you.

The education which doesnot help the common mass of people to equip themselves for the struggle for life, which does not bring out strength of character, a spirit of philanthropy, and the courage of a lion- is it worth the name? Real education is that which enables one to stand on his/her own legs. Education is not the amount of information that is put into your brain and runs riot there, undigested all your life. We must have life building, man making character making, assimilation of ideas.

Examine yourself thoroughly: are you a body-mind? were you born? who are you ? Find out for yourself. Before you were born there was nothing, there was no idea that you were taking a form; this form came to your knowledge only after your mother introduced you to yourself. After passing this examination the result will be that no idea of death will appear to you.

I am not going to be concerned with being attentive, but i am going to see what is inattention. I am watching inattention, and i see i am inattentive most of the time. So i am going to pay attention to one thing at a time, that is, when i walk, when i eat, i am going to walk, eat with attention. I am not going to think about something else, but i am going to pay attention to every little thing . So what has been inattention becomes attention.

So i am now watching inattention. That is, i am watching that i am not attentive.

When the mind is quiet, we come to know ourselves as the pure witness. We withdraw from the experience and its experiencer and stand apart in pure awareness, which is between and beyond two. The personality, based on self identification, on imagining oneself to be something: i am this , i am that, continues, but only as a part of the objective world. Its identification with the witness snaps.

The true knowledge of the self is not a knowledge. It is not something that you find by searching , by looking everywhere. It is not to be found in space or time. Knowledge is but a memory, a pattern of thought, a mental habit. All these are motivated by pleasure and pain. It is because you are goaded by pleasure and pain that you are in search of knowledge. Being oneself is completely beyond all motivation. You cannot be YOURSELF for some reason. You are YOURSELF , and no reason is needed.

Meditation : Start with breathing, because that is the most simple thing in the world, so simple that you don't do it at all, it happens on its own. Watch it, become aware of it. Sitting silently, simply see the breath going in, the breath going out. You may feel bored, you will have to face the boredom. Doing it slowly, slowly, one day you will be able to watch your breath. If a person can watch his breath for forty minutes continuously, then there is no problem in life. He can watch any problem. And by watching any problem can be dissolved.

Love is the circumference, freedom is the centre. One has to grow in such delicate balance, to where love and freedom can bloom togethre. And they can, because in a few rare individuals it has happened. And if it has happened to only a single individual in the whole history, it can happen to every human being. It is your potential, your birthright. Meditation is the balance.

Meditation is the bird with two wings; freedom and love. Be loving and be free, be loving and be non possessive. Be free, but don't become cold: remain warm warm with love.

Minus God you are nothing but misery, plus God you are nothing but bliss. Minus God you are negative, black hole. Minus God you only pretend to live, you cannot live. How can there be life minus God ? God is life! Yes, you go through all empty motions, gestures, you act as if you are alive; deep down you know you are not alive, life has not yet happened to you. Birth has happened but not life. Life happens only when GOD has happened.

PRAYER : Tears flow in gratitude and thankfulness towards existence. We have nothing but our tears to give to the grace that is flowing towards us. We feel we do not deserve whatever we are receiving, and that we cannot contain the joy that is descending on us. We had never even dreamed of such a feeling, and we have no way to show our gratitude. Neither words nor anything else can adeqetly express it.

The perfection, the completion of worship, is in tears.....

Love comes and goes but Compassion is a Love which, once it comes, never goes. In Love, there is a subtle desire to get something from the other. In Compassion, there is the awareness that no one has anything to give; everyone is so poor that there is nothing they can give, and that is why there is Compassion. There is no demand in Compassion. In this state there is no desire even to give, but the effect of such Compassion is that all the doors of the heart become wide open and something spontaneously begins to be distributed.

Our minds are so cluttered up, with knowledge, with worries, with problems, with money, with position and prestige; they are so burdened that there is no space at all; yet without space there is no order. When i look at this valley from a height and there is a direction because i want to see where i live, then i lose the vastness of space. Where there is direction space is limited. Where there is a purpose, a goal, something to be achieved, there is no space. Whereas if there is no concentration there is vast space.

To observe holistically is to observe - or to listen to the whole content of something. We look at things partically, according to our pleasure, or according to our conditioning, or according to our some iedalistic point of view; we are always look at things fragmentarily. It seems that we never take, or observe, the whole movement of life - like a full river with a great volume of water behind it. It is improtant to understand how the mind creates illusions of self-importance and the various types of illusions which are comforting and safe - atleast for the time being . We look at something with a preconceived idea or belief so that we never really actually see it.

Conflict implies comparison. Can one live without comparison? - which means no ideal, no authority of a pattern, no conformity to a particular ideology. It implies freedom from the prison of ideas so that there is no comparison, no imitation, no conformity; therefore you are stuck with "what is" .

Comparison comes only when you compare "what is" with "what should be", or "what might be", or try to transform "what is" into something which it is not and all this implies conflict.

Ecstasy is our very nature, not to be ecstatic is simply unnecessary. To be ecstatic is natural, spontaneous. It needs no effort to be ecstatic, it needs great effort to be miserable. That's why you look so tired, because misery is real hard work; to maintain it is really difficult, because you are doing something against the nature. You are going upstream - that's what misery is.
