What is natural is death; it is life that is unnatural. The whole of the Universe is death manifest, says Buddha, the great seer of our own historical times. The universe is death, as it were, because it is a procession of transitions, a movement, a perpetual transformation of constituents. Do you call it Life ?

Stick to your consciousness, remain in that. All the burden of your concepts you should fuse into your consciousness, but do not use your consciousness to build up the edifices of concepts.

A man who believes in GOD can never find GOD. If you are open to reality, there can be no belief in reality. If you are open to the unknown, there can be no belief in it. After all, belief is a form of self-protection, and only a petty mind can believe in GOD.

Life is considered as a process of transiency by masters like Buddha. They never considered the world as ultimately existent. Nothing in the world IS. Everything passes. Everything moves. Even our awareness of the existence of the world is a process, transitory condition of the activities of the mind, due to which we are said to be living in perpetual anityata.

As long as you have concepts,
you never see what is True.

It is difficult to talk about grace because each person has his own concept of it. Grace is something given by God or the Sadguru whose mind has become silent. In this context its aid in a situation where one is helpless, where one's efforts have come to a stand still, in invaluable. With the help of this grace one is back effectively on the inner journey overcoming the mind's holocaust.

The meaning of having someone as your centre is that your life is now a surrendered life. Worshipping implies a surrendered life. Worshipping the divine means living as the divine wishes ; sitting and standing, eating and drinking, speaking and remaining silent also for the divine.

There are several steps to worship, but the first and fundamental one is to be understood that every individual is self-centered. Our whole way of living is as though "I am " is the centre of the whole world. : The moon and the stars rise for me, the birds are flying for my joy and the sun too is giving light for me: the whole world is revolving around me, I am the centre of the whole world. Such a person cannot know worship, feeling that he is at the centre and the rest of the world is his circumference.

In worship you see the opposite : the fundamental law of worship is , " I am on the circumference, the centre is somewhere else."

When there is no desire, actions begin to take an altogether different quality. When there is no desire, then action become just a play - with no madness in it, with no insanity behind it, with no obssesion. It become just a play, a playfulness.

Arguments begin when names and lables are given, because a personal attachment is formed around names and lables: the name given by you is right and the name given by someone else is wrong. The ego creates this problem. But when only a number is used, the chances of dispute just disappears. If the world had used numbers instead of names and labels, there would never be any conflict.

There are two different things: one is the subjective renunciation, and the other is objective renunciation. If an object, an outside thing, cause pain, naturally you want to renounce it. But subjective renunciation is the natural outcome of a raised consciousness. The true renunciation arises only through Meditation. Meditation is the only way to expand your consciousness. Meditation is the fuel with which the light of inner consciousness can burn brighter and sharper.
