It is the same consciousness that operates in every being. The same consciousness operates in the seer and the seen. When we identify this truth in everything, we understand the real meaning of non-duality, unity. When the unity awareness becomes a constant experience, enlightenment takes place.
Great masters will be devoid of ego. The ego dies when the self is realized.
Automatically, me and mine, likes and dislikes, right and wrong, ownerships and doership, rights and possessiveness, enmity towards people and resistance to happenings, discrimination using any criteria will dissolve forever. Only compassion, kindness, selflessness, unconditional love and innocence will remain.
On State of True Masters
Gratitude strengthens conscience. Ingratitude weakens it. Ingratitude fathers regrets and guilt too.
On Importance of Gratitude
Time waits for none. The times we loved unconditionally are the best moments and the times we hated are the worst. Love makes life worthwhile. Hatred makes it miserable. Love and hate are our choices. Wise always choose only love, letting go of adverse moments and forgiving themselves and others for the time, space and experience that they did not agree with.
Death is inevitable. Wise men die peacefully after living a life filled with moments of love, letting go of bad memories through immense acceptance and forgiveness. Regrets and hatreds of life usually make the last moments painful. Never hate anything or anybody. Instead, love unconditionally. Respect oneself and others.
Choose Peace Always.
On A Good Life and Death
I have always maintained that being practical is the first step towards being spiritual. We cannot ignore our basic states such as inherent inclinations, tendencies and desires, and escape to spiritual places imagining that the basic states will disappear. This is equal to the ostrich putting its head in the sand and believing that it’s safe from enemies. Man is driven by inclinations, basic personal tendencies. This added to pending desires for multiple aspects of existence causes thoughts, expressions and actions. Every desire seeks fulfillment. Here, all we can do is to keep the intellect on top of emotions and lead a life of awareness. This helps witnesshood which in turn helps detachment without longing for that thing that he has detached from. Detachment is not suppression. Suppression is only postponement. Detachment means desires for something dropped off forever. So, instead of just deciding to follow a spiritual master blindly imagining that he is going to shoulder all your problems and pay your bills, (joking), be practical. Do not pretend to yourself. Do not cheat your own conscience. If you have desires for something, you have desires for that thing. Accept it. Now use your intellect, your processor for analysis and decide if it is essential to fulfill or it can be ignored. If you chose to ignore, see if that desire is still bothering, which means it is craving for Fulfilment. Thus, alert awareness diminishes your thoughts, expressions and actions. Intellect seldom commits mistakes. Mistakes are brethren of emotions. Hence, if intellect is available all the time, there will be lesser regrets and guilt. Life will be reasonably clear and clean. Be practical. Understand and accept. Do not have blind faith and borrowed beliefs. Use your own faculties to create your own path and dare to walk the path that you have created for yourself, unapologetically.
On Importance of Being Practical
How deep is your faith, that strong is grace in your life. Faith opens the doors for grace to flow. Unshakeable faith ensures uninterrupted grace.
On The Grace Factor
If you really love me, let me be free from your expectations. If you expect anything from me, you are not loving me, you are only loving your own desires. Then, you are not here for me, you are here just for the sake of selfishly fulfilling your expectations. You will leave me sooner or later whatever its outcome may be. If you have come for only me, without expectations, you will never leave me.
