Let my knowing of You
not just be in my mind but
inside my Heart.
Let there only be You.
to be a body, no wonder you
have all these ailments.
to be the mind, no wonder you
have all these worries.
to be Consciousness, no wonder you
have all this peace.
to be formless, no wonder you
are the imperishable
Keep quiet’ means
stop pursuing thoughts.
Stop managing yourself.
Hand over your existence to Existence.
Keep on dissolving like ice in warm water.
Your self image is as ephemeral as the play of light dancing on the surface of the water.
When the mind is kept away from its preoccupations, it becomes quiet. If you do not disturb this quiet and stay in it, you find that it is permeated with a light and a love you have never known; and yet you recognise it at once as your own nature. Once you have passed through this experience, you will never be the same man again; the unruly mind may break its peace and obliterate its vision; but it is bound to return, provided the effort is sustained; until the day when all bonds are broken, delusions and attachments end and life becomes supremely concentrated in the present.
When you get on the path correctly, after a while it becomes effortless. In the beginning there seems to be a little effort you have to take, because you’re breaking away from your old patterns, and as you continue it becomes effortless, easier and easier. It becomes a pleasure. It becomes a joy and you’re always doing it, effortlessly, so the effort is only the beginning stages. It’s not really effort, but when you break into a new habit, the old wants to still stay there and take over. So you still have to push it out as you inquire: “To whom does it come? Who feels miserable?
The world is but the surface of the mind and the mind is infinite. What we call thoughts are just ripples in the mind. When the mind is quiet it reflects reality. When it is motionless through and through, it dissolves and only reality remains.
Acknowledging the good that is already in your life is the foundation for all abundance.
