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.

Kabir says : i was searching and searching and searching, and a miracle happened: the searcher disappeared, and that was the moment - when there was no seeker, no searcher - that it was found.

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.

The real does not die, the unreal never lived. Once you know that death happens to the body and not to you, you just watch your body falling off like a discarded grament.
The real you is timeless and beyond birth and death. The body will survive as long as it is needed. It is not important that it should live long.

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.

Man is a confusion : confusion between the body and the soul, confusion between the material and the spiritual, confusion between logic and love. Out of this confusion, there is no possiblity of knowing God. Out of this confusion, you can go on crying and praying, but your prayer will never reach to the divine, your crying is futile. Out of this confusion, you will not be able to see the light. This confusion has to be dorpped.

This is precisely the situation man is in. 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.

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.

Man without God is corpse, man with God is a celebration. Minus God or plus God- these are the only two ways to live your life. 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 devotee's eyes weep defferently from those of a lover.

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.
