Without that experience, doubt will presist. Please remember that doubt is not destroyed by faith or belief. Doubt cannot be destroyed in any other way except by experience.

Do you know of someone whose main function in life seems to be to make themselves and others miserable, to spread unhappiness ?

Forgive them, for they too are part of the awakening of humanity. The role they play represents an intensification of the nightmare of egoic consciousness, the state of non-surrender.

If your speaking is rooted in your mind, ninty percent of speach will vanish. Ninty percent of speech is unnecessary ! And how much trouble is born out of this unnecessary speaking, life goes on becoming more complicated - you cannot imagine how complicated. Only ten percent of your speaking will remain; it will become telegraphic.
When i am not speaking the mind should become silent and empty.

Those who have set out on the search for truth have to become insecure, without support. They have to give up all shelter; only then can they receive the protection of existence. They have to become helpless; only then the help from existence is available.
That is why the sannyasin becomes independent. without support , without shelter. This is the way he lives and will remain with grace of existence.

Mere reading of the scriptures is not enough.
A person cannot understand the true significance of the scriptures if he is attached to the world.
One should hear the scriptures during the early stages of spiritual discipline.

God, Guru, and the Self are the same. His Silence is more vast and more emphatic than all the sastras put together. Grace is always there. We are never out of its operation. It is only the clouded mind which does not feel it . Yet through effort it can experience Grace.

Every person is born with latent samskara from his past lives. One method will prove easy to one person and another to another. There can be no general rule. Advanced spiritual aspirants quickly realize the Self when given the right instructions by a qualified Guru. The less mature need time to reflect on the Self before realizing it and the third group require many years of intensive spiritual sadhana.

Can anyone ever become unconscious by thinking of Consciousness ? GOD is of the nature of Eternity, Purity, and Consciousness. Through His Consciousness one becomes conscious of everything ; through His Intelligence the whole world appears intelligent.

This gross mind cannot comprehend God. God is far beyond both the mind and the intellect. The world that you see is within the domain of the mind. The mind is its author. But through sadhana, a subtle mind opens up. That is already in you in seed form. Through sadhana this seed develops and unfolds, and through that subtle mind you can have this vision of finer truths.

The devotion to GOD as seen in every religion is divided into two parts : the devotion which works through forms and ceremonies and through words, and that which works through love ....
