Live it! Move into love. Then you will know and that knowing will come out of your experiencing. The real question is whether you are alive before death.
The Heart of Awareness (translation of Ashtavakra Gita)
The outside world is a dream. From body to soul, physical to spiritual, sex to superconsciousness, everything is divine for me. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it. If I say something, wait, search, and you will find the way. Seriousness becomes like a blindness.
Just simply be a human being. Bring God to your ordinary life introduce God into your ordinary life. You are not here accidentally — you are here meaningfully.
There is a purpose behind you. The whole intends to do something through you. Sick and tired of messy relationships? Join us for this masterclass, playing only for a limited time. All fear is of death. Death is the only fear source. He has courage. He has courage to face the whole pressure of the society which is bent upon splitting him into divisions — into good and bad, into saint and sinner.
He is really a brave, courageous being who stands against the whole history of man, of morality, and declares to the skies his reality, whatever it is. There is nothing more holy than life, nothing more divine than life.
What is Conscious Living?
Even if the whole world knows you, how does it make you richer? How does it make your life more blissful? How does it help you to be more understanding, to be more aware? To be more alert, to be more alive? She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new. One, I live as if today was my last day on earth. Two, I live today as if I am going to live forever.
That is the right place to begin with and then spread.
Living In Freedom
Nobody else is responsible — only you and you alone. You are your hell and your heaven too. No teacher, no scripture can give it to you. It is inside you and if you wish to attain it, seek your own company.
Be with yourself. It is continuously giving you hints; it is a still, small voice. It does not shout at you, that is true. And if you are a little silent you will start feeling your way. Be the person you are. Never try to be another, and you will become mature. Maturity is accepting the responsibility of being oneself, whatsoever the cost. It is coming because you are alone.
It is giving you a chance to go deeper into your aloneness. Rather than jumping from one shallow happiness to another shallow happiness and wasting your life, it is better to use sadness as a means for meditation. Witness it. It is a friend! It opens the door of your eternal aloneness.
And that makes you more human, more compassionate, more understanding. It has nothing to do with ego. In fact, love is such a light that the darkness of the ego cannot exist in it at all. And the life is never so alive as after death. Only the unborn is deathless. Find what is it that never sleeps and never wakes, and whose pale reflection is our sense of 'I'. By keeping your mind and heart in it. Interest there must be and steady remembrance. To remember what needs to be remembered is the secret of success. You come to it through earnestness.
Surely, both qualifications and opportunities are needed. What is supremely important is to be free from contradictions: the goal and the way must not be on different levels; life and light must not quarrel; behaviour must not betray belief. Call it honesty, integrity, wholeness; you must not go back, undo, uproot, abandon the conquered ground.
Tenacity of purpose and honesty in pursuit will bring you to your goal. Not a trace of them I have. Take the first step first.
WORLD TOUR for PEACE: Philosophy
All blessings come from within. Turn within. Be with it all the time you can spare, until you revert to it spontaneously. There is no simpler and easier way. Maharaj: We know the outer world of sensations and actions, but of our inner world of thoughts and feelings we know very little. The primary purpose of meditation is to become conscious of, and familiar with, our inner life.
The ultimate purpose is to reach the source of life and consciousness. Incidentally practice of meditation affects deeply our character. We are slaves to what we do not know; of what we know we are masters. The dissolution of the unconscious releases energy; the mind feels adequate and become quiet.
We withdraw from the experience and its experiencer and stand apart in pure awareness, which is between and beyond the 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 self by its very nature delights in everything and its energies flow outwards.
Is it not the purpose of meditation to dam up the energies on the higher levels, or to push them back and up, so as to enable the higher levels to prosper also? Meditation is a sattvic activity and aims at complete elimination of tamas inertia and rajas motivity. Pure sattva harmony is perfect freedom from sloth and restlessness. It is like the sun. It may seem obscured by clouds and dust, but only from the point of view of the perceiver.
Deal with the causes of obscuration, not with the sun. They are their own goal.

They manifest spontaneously and effortlessly, when things are left to themselves, are not interfered with, not shunned, or wanted, or conceptualised, but just experienced in full awareness, such awareness itself is sattva. It does not make use of things and people -- it fulfils them. How can I deal with them?
Be aware of them in operation, watch their expressions in your thoughts, words and deeds, and gradually their grip on you will lessen and the clear light of sattva will emerge. It is neither difficult, nor a protracted process; earnestness is the only condition of success. Questioner: There are very interesting books written by apparently very competent people, in which the illusoriness of the world is denied though not its transitoriness.
