Remain Strong

“Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world’s grief. Do justly, now. Love mercy, now. Walk humbly, now.

You are not obligated to complete the work but neither are you free to abandon it.”

Sound and Silence

“There is something beyond our mind which abides in silence. It is the supreme mystery beyond thought. Let one’s mind and one’s subtle body rest upon that, and not rest upon anything else. God is sound and silence.”

The Present

“But man postpones or remembers; he does not live in the present, but with reverted eye laments the past, or, heedless of the riches that surround him, stands on tiptoe to foresee the future. He cannot be happy and strong until he too lives with nature in the present, above time.”

Remember

“Pleasure or pain are aspects of the mind only. Our essential nature is happiness. But we have forgotten the Self and imagine that the body or the mind is the Self. It is that wrong identity that gives rise to misery.”

Cleaned

“Solitude is the place of purification.”

Centre

“The centre is within me and its wonder
Lies as a circle everywhere about me.
Joy! Joy! No mortal thought can fathom me.”

Wordless

“Where can I find one who has forgotten words? I would like to have a word with that person.”

Unclear

“This life’s dim windows of the soul
Distorts the heavens from pole to pole
And leads you to believe a lie
When you see with, not through, the eye.”

Useless Thoughts

“Useless thoughts spoil all; that is where the mischief begins.”

Options

“We love variety, the play of pain and pleasure, we are fascinated by contrasts. For this we need the opposites and their apparent separation. We enjoy them for a time and then get tired and crave for the peace and silence of Pure Being.”
