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.

You give reality to concepts, while concepts are distortions of reality.
Abandon all conceptualization and stay silent and attentive. Be earnest about it and all will be well with you.

Surrender can take effect only when done with full knowledge. Such knowledge comes after enquiry. It ends in SURRENDER.

A belief is a pseudo kind of knowing. You really don't know but because you believe , because you have believed so long, you start feeling as if you know. All your beliefs have to be taken away from you. You have to be left in ingnorance and innocence. Only from there is experimentation possible.

TRUTH cannot be borrowed. It cannot be studied in books. Nobody can inform you about it. You have to sharpen yourself, your intelligence, so that you can look into existence and find it.

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.

Everything is a miracle. A seed turning into a sprout, growing into a huge tree, flowering, bringing fruits ...... old leaves are falling and new leaves have already arrived, fresh and young.
Life itself is a miracle.

What we want is this ' SRADHA ' . Unfortunately, it has nearly vanished, and this is why we are in our present state. What makes the difference between man and man is the difference in this 'SRADHA' and nothing else. What makes one man great and another weak and low is this SRADHA.

He is a atheist who does not believe in himself. The old religions said that he was an atheist who do not believe in GOD. The new religion says that he is an atheist who does not believe in himself.

The history of the world is the history of a few men who had faith in themselves. That faith calls out the divinity within.

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.

See your world as it is, not as you imagine it to be. Discrimination will lead to detachment; detachment will ensure right action, right action will build the inner bridge to your real being. Action is a proof of earnestness. Do what you are told diligently and faithfully and all obstacles will dissolve.

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.

Unfortunately, in this life, the vast majority of persons are groping through this dark life without any ideal at all. If a man with an ideal makes a thousand mistakes, i am sure that the man without an ideal makes fifty thousand mistakes. Therefore, it is better to have an ideal.

If one understands, apprehends one's true identity, all the rest loses its significance and importance because all subsequent thoughts and actions, not being based on duality, would be simple, direct, intuitive and sponataneous.

What you must find out is who are these, 'me' , 'you' and 'they' that we are talking about.

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.
