Truth is that which is independent of everything.
The World determines you, the mind; and you determine the World. It’s the same. And when you know these two together, then you have exceeded them both.
What will we do with awareness? Awareness is already doing what it has to do.
False is not a word that you can use carelessly. Only in deep contact with Truth, do you call the projections of Truth as false.
When you go to the root of desire, you find that your ultimate desire is just one. And that is Truth.
Condemning anything is to condemn the Truth. Because nothing but the Truth exists.
You must see the True in the false also.

Life anyway does a lot of things to everybody which help them wake up. We are just one of those things, we are no special.
The fellow may fail in his semester exams and wake up. That fellow may break up with his girlfriend and wake up. The girlfriend is a guru, the exam is a guru. We are only as much of a guru. If you want to call us a guru, then the exam is also a guru; then the girlfriend is also a guru because life itself is presenting situations and these situations are present in front of everybody.
Buddha woke up by looking at a corpse – a dead body!
Life is giving you opportunities all the time.
Life is the Guru.
We are a part of life. Yes, we are a guru, of course! Why not? Because when the Source itself is the guru, everything in the life is Guru. So we are Guru but that does not mean that the piece of chair, the wood is not the guru. Wood is also a guru. All is Guru.
It is just incidental that how the light of the divine will shine upon someone.
We talk so much about observing one’s life.
Observing one’s life is not about scolding oneself or belittling oneself.
A lot of that happens in the name of observation.
You observe and you say, ‘Oh! I am such a rascal! I am so mean, so pity, so self-contained.’
No, observation is not that.
Observation is not only choiceless, it is also judgmentless.
You observe, you see; you do not say that because my observation is not tallying with my expectations so I will despise the observation itself.
