Nisargadatta Maharaj

 Before the world was, consciousness was. In consciousness the world comes to be, in hard consciousness and in pure consciousness dissolves. At the root of everything, there is the feeling of ′′ I am ". The state of mind: ′′ there is a world ′′ is secondary, to be me I don't need the world, the world needs me.

′′ I Am That ′′ (pag. 107)

Joseph Campbell

 Eternity isn’t some later time. Eternity isn’t a long time. Eternity has nothing to do with time. Eternity is that dimension of here and now which thinking and time cuts out. This is it. And if you don’t get it here, you won’t get it anywhere. And the experience of eternity right here and now is the function of life.

 "You cannot move towards Greatness, keeping your littleness with you... Don't call God to your little world. Instead, leave your little world and come to God."

Ram Dass


the true self is in the middle of our chest, in our spiritual heart

I have a practice in which I say to myself, “I am loving awareness.” To begin, I focus my attention in the middle of my chest, on the heart-mind. I may take a few deep breaths into my diaphragm to help me identify with it. I breathe in love and breathe out love. I watch all of the thoughts that create the stuff of my mind, and I love everything, love everything I can be aware of. I just love, just love, just love.  



**Now, what is there in the waking state that does not disappear? Nothing. Therefore, everything objective, connected with the waking state, is unreal.
But what we have just called the unreal appears all the while. Yes. When the unreal appears as real we call it a dream. Therefore, the waking state is all a dream.
But there is one thing that does not disappear in any state – pure Consciousness, the Atma (Self).By a ‘dream’ we mean something which is not real. What is Reality? That which does not disappear at any time.**

Paramahansa Yogananda ji


Most of the world is like a mental hospital. Some persons are sick with jealousy, others with anger, hatred, passion. They are victims of their habits and emotions. But you can make your home a place of peace.

Adi Shankara




**Learn to watch and wait. Emotions come and go like waves on the shore, so if you can be mindful of them you will understand where they come from and also that they are impermanent, like everything

Ashtavakra Gita

The self is called atman or soul

It is the microcosmic aspect of Brahman, smaller than an atom and vaster than the earth, the ether, the heavens and all the worlds, without qualities and having the same consciousness as that of Brahman. The self is subject to illusion, bondage and the laws of karma. When it achieves liberation it regains its true nature and either rejoins Brahman or exists eternally in its purest state. Different schools of Hinduism interpret the nature of relationship between atman and Brahman differently.
Author unknown


 "The real innocents of this world are those who have been through the mud of this world, through injustice, oppression, exposed to hate remain untouched in their hearts, choosing to continue to love, trusting love. Those are the exalted ones in my eyes, the blessed in spirit. Eternity belongs to them."

Nisargadatta Maharaj

 "That which you want to sustain, nourish and maintain by five-elemental stuff, is not you. Since you identify with something unreal, there is the fear of death."

"You," the Absolute, are not the personal I. One who is afraid of time becomes a prey of time. But time itself becomes a prey of that one who is not afraid of it. One who transcends time, the beingness and its attributes, abides in the Absolute."

By Pravrajika Brahmaprana

 Advaita Vedanta is not mere philosophical speculation or theory; it has direct experience as its basis as well as ultimate proof. To lift the veil of maya, Advaita Vedanta exhorts the spiritual seeker to take the testimony of the scriptures (Vedas) and illumined souls, use reason, reflection, and meditation, and attain direct experience. These are the compasses, maps, and sails needed to steer successfully to the highest union with Brahman. One must transcend the effects of maya in order to know the nature of its cause.

Danna Faulds

 “It takes only a moment to breathe, a moment to be still, and just like that, something in me settles, softens, makes space for imperfection. The harsh voice of judgement drops to a whisper and I remember again that life isn’t a relay race, that we will all cross the finish line, that waking up to life is what we were born for. As many times as I forget, catch myself charging forward without even knowing where I’m going, that many times I can make the choice to stop, to breathe, and be, and walk slowly into the mystery.”   


“To give up our imaginary position as the center, to renounce it, not only intellectually but in the imaginative part of our soul, that means to awaken to what is real and eternal, to see the true light and hear the true silence.”

Right from Lord Brahma (the creator) to all the creatures, all are Anandis, i.e. those who experience Ananda (happiness). This experience is got only through an instrument like mind, brain etc. But there are no instruments in deep sleep. Therefore, the supreme happiness (Paramananda) there is natural. There is no experience of Ananda there. There is no division of Ananda and Anandi (one experiencing Ananda).
The sleeper is Ananda itself, not one experiencing it. Actually, this Paramananda is always there in the cave of our heart (hrdya guha), but it is generally covered by darkness. When a desired object comes into contact, the ensuing mental form clears this mental covering and the already existing Ananda is just felt. But this mental form is not stable. Therefore, such a happiness is only momentary.
For permanent happiness we need to be in constant realisation of our inherent nature as Ananda. This is achieved through Vedanta Sadhana under the guidance of an able Guru. The purpose of this analysis done by the Upanishads is to demonstrate that permanent happiness is not an abstract promise, but a fact which can be glimpsed everyday in our deep sleep.

Anthony de Mello

 ′′ If you want to love, you must learn to see again.

And if you want to see,
you need to learn to give up your drug [your need for other people].
It's so simple... Stop your addiction. The tentacles of society that have wrapped you up and suffocated your existence. You have to let them go. On the outside, everything will go as it was before, but even though you will continue to be in the world, you will no longer be.
In your heart, you will now be free at last if you are completely alone. Your addiction on your medicine will die. You don't have to go to the desert. You can be in the middle of people and enjoy it too much. But they no longer have the power to make you happy or unhappy. That means loneliness. In this loneliness your addiction dies.
Love ability is born. No one sees others as a means of satisfying their addiction. Only someone who has tried it knows the horrors of the process. It's like inviting yourself to die It's like asking the poor drug addict to give up the only happiness he's ever known.
How to replace it with the taste of bread and fruit and the pure taste of morning air, and the sweetness of mountain stream water?
While struggling with withdrawal symptoms and the gap he is experiencing inside him now that his medicine is gone, nothing can fill the void except his medicine.
[Can you imagine a life in which you refuse to enjoy a word of appreciation,, or support your head on someone's shoulder for support,,
Think of a life in which you don't depend on anyone emotionally, so that no one has the power to make you happy or unhappy anymore. Do you refuse to need a certain person,,, or invite someone of your own. Air birds have their nest and foxes have their holes, but you will have nowhere to rest your head in your journey in life.
If you ever get to this situation, you'll finally know what it means to see with a vision that's clean and not covered by fear or desire. Every word there counts. You'll know what it means to love. But to come to the land of love, you have to go through the pain of death, because loving faces means dying in your need for them and being completely alone....
Overall, we seek to heal our loneliness through emotional dependence on humans, through arrogance and noise. This is not a cure. Return to things, return to nature, climb to the mountains. Then you will know that your heart brought you to the infinite desert of loneliness, there is no one there next to you, absolutely none. At first this will seem unbearable. But it's only because you're not used to solitude.
If you manage to stay there for a while, the desert will suddenly bloom in love. Your heart will break in song. And it will be spring forever. the medicine won't be out. You will be free. Then you will understand what freedom is, what love is, what happiness is, what reality is, what is truth, what is God. You'll see, you'll know beyond concepts, addictions and attachments.

"When your spiritual quest  is coming together with different other investments, when it's coming together with other daily endeavors, that is like you have a road in front of you, a road that never ends actually. It just renews itself. But when you really start to take your spiritual quest seriously, when it is the only thing that really matters, and you can bring your attention and focus into that perspective, the endless road tapers in front of you. This is the narrow path.

This is when things becomes really intense. It's quite different when you're learning things, because it's a different mindset, you are learning and studying a philosophy, a religion, it is an outgoing attention. You are bringing new bricks for your world, you are changing and transforming it and it's fine. But this is not yet about Freedom. Because that last part of the Journey is exactly the opposite of this mindset. It's about letting go and all these inner structures dissolving. And for each dissolution it's like going through death. It's quite intense.
Whenever you're being exposed to Intensity on your spiritual journey, that is giving you two choices: self-preservation or Surrender. And what you choose at that moment makes the difference in what you're going to experience in the next moment.As you open some doors you close other doors. So if you're deciding for Surrender the landscape will change and other doors will open. If you're deciding for self-preservation, other doors will open and your experience will be completely different."

I am presenting here a text excerpted from the Christian Old Testament, in the Bible. It is commonly known as Psalm 139, and belongs to the Book of Psalms. ’Psalm’ in Greek means ‘instrumental music’ and is by extension, a hymn. These hymns are mostly praises to God. This particular Psalm was brought to my knowledge by Rupert Spira. This is certainly one of the richest for it expresses the all knowing and pervasiveness of God, of that deep presence that is the nature and heart of our utmost self. It also stresses that this presence shines in all circumstances, including in our darkest hours. The psalm seems to hold in itself the soft power of a prayer, which is the ability to make us aware of our true self. For this is the function of a prayer, to throw us back into our self, into the deep silence that is the core of our being. As Stephen Mitchell wrote in ‘A Book of Psalms’, “Pure prayer begins at the threshold of silence. It says nothing, asks for nothing. It is a kind of listening. The deeper the listening, the less we listen for, until silence itself becomes the voice of God.” Listen to the depth of this poem. As its promise reads, you may be led “in the way everlasting”.



O lord, thou hast searched me, 
     and known me.
Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, 
     thou understandest my thought afar off.
Thou compassest my path and my lying down, 
     and art acquainted with all my ways.
For there is not a word in my tongue, 
     but, lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether.
Thou hast beset me behind and before, 
     and laid thine hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; 
      it is high, I cannot attain unto it.

Whither shall I go from thy spirit? 
     or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: 
     if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.
If I take the wings of the morning, 
     and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
Even there shall thy hand lead me, 
     and thy right hand shall hold me.
If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; 
     even the night shall be light about me.
Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; 
     but the night shineth as the day: 
     the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.

For thou hast possessed my reins: 
     thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: 
     marvellous are thy works; 
     and that my soul knoweth right well.
My substance was not hid from thee, 
     when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought 
     in the lowest parts of the earth.
Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book 
     all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, 
     when as yet there was none of them.
How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! 
     how great is the sum of them!
If I should count them, 
     they are more in number than the sand: 
     when I awake, I am still with thee.


Search me, O God, and know my heart: 
     try me, and know my thoughts:
And see if there be any wick

.ed way in me, 
     and lead me in the way everlasting.

Psalm 139 (King James Version)



Psalm from the Holy Bible (King James Version)

“Constantly regard the universe as one living being, having one substance and one soul; and observe how all things have reference to one perception, the perception of this one living being; and how all things act with one movement; and how all things are the cooperating causes of all things which exist; observe too the continuous spinning of the thread and the contexture of the web.”

It means that when you worship any deity in any temple, you are also worshipping Brahman, who is the supporter and sustainer of the deity, the temple, the priest, the offerings and you also. Secondly, it is incorrect to say that Brahman is not worshipped at all because the numerous gods and goddess are but his numerous names and forms only.
~by Jayaram V.

Astavakra Samhita

 One who knows for certain that this universe is but an illusion and a nothing, becomes desireless and Pure Intelligence, and finds peace as if nothing exists.

In the ocean of the world One only was, is, and will be. You have neither bondage nor liberation. Live contented and happily.

 **He who knows Brahman attains the supreme goal. Brahman is the abiding reality, He is pure knowledge and He is infinity. He who knows that Brahman dwells within the lotus of the heart becomes one with Brahman and enjoys all blessing **

Anandamayi Ma

 “Be truthful in every way.

Without purity one cannot advance towards Divinity.”
“It is necessary to try and dedicate to the Supreme every single action of one's daily life.”
“The analysis of the substance of all created things, if carried sufficiently far, will lead to the discovery that what remains is identical and equally present in all creatures: it is He, it is That, which is styled as Pure Consciousness.”
