Every Moment Carries the Taste of Eternity~Nisargadatta


“Just as every drop of the ocean carries the taste of the ocean, so does every moment carry the taste of eternity.”

 There’s nothing mysterious about it. Everybody sees the world through the ideas they have of themselves. As you think yourself to be, so you think the world to be. If you imagine yourself as separate from the world, the world will appear as separate from you. And you will experience desire and fear. What is beautiful? Whatever is percieved joyfully is beautiful. Bliss is the essence of beauty. We are slaves of what we don’t know. Of what we know we are masters. Whatever vice or weakness in ourselves we discover (and understand its cause and workings) we can overcome it by the very knowing.The primary purpose of meditation is to become more conscious and familiar with our inner life. The ultimate purpose is to reach the Source of Life. If you are angry or in pain, separate your self from anger and pain, and watch them. Externalization is the first step to liberation. Whatever state I am in, I see it as a state of mind to be accepted, as it is. There is no “my self” and “your self.” There is the Self. The only Self of All. Misled by the diversity of names and shapes, minds and bodies, you imagine multiple selves. There is no second or higher “self” to search for. You are the higher Self.
