There is nobody who is at any given point too far away from crying. There is nobody who is too far away from breaking down.
Please take every single feeling of discomfort, of disquiet as a signal that there is something that beckons you, and that something is not a thing. So, you better not try out things. There is something that is calling you but that which is calling you is not a thing. So, do not deceive yourself with one thing or the other.
Things will not suffice.
Nothing that the mind can conceive of would suffice. Your next great idea would again fall flat. Your next big hope would again be dashed. You would be disappointed once again. So, don’t place your hope in things. Don’t place your hope in thoughts. Don’t place your hope in yourself. Whatever you are doing, or can possibly do is not only insufficient but actually, detrimental to your own interests.
The more you live in the impression of finally reaching something that completes your destiny, the more you will keep away from your destiny.
Your destiny, obviously, is aloneness; is contentment; is a realization that not only have you arrived but actually there had been never any departure.
When you look at the wall do you see emptiness? No, you see something tangible, you see something important. Usually, this argument is given by
That is the final thing to be dropped — the one who is holding, the one who is still remembering the mantra and you don’t need to do anything special to do that because it is the nature of the right mantra to dissolve by itself after its task is done.
What does it mean that the mantra will go away?
It means the right words — the mantra — from the scriptures, from the Teachers not only take your thoughts away, ultimately, they will also take the thinker away. So then there will be no one left with the weight. Which means that you are going just right, keep going. Just as everything else disappears, this final weight will also disappear.
Doing is always accompanied by the desire of the results of the doing, the fruits of the doing. If you are not concerned with the fruits of the action, then you are not the actor.
Action is not merely extending your hand to someone. You are the actor when you are desiring something out of the stretched hand. Otherwise, you are not doing anything. Otherwise, the doing is just happening. It is not a decision for me to come here, just as it would not be a decision to walk away silently.
Refuse everything that makes you feel small.
That is the only test of the false—whatever makes you feel small is false.
Whatever makes you feel low, doubtful, confused, guilty, shameful is false.
Get rid of it.
Whatever makes you feel like a sinner is false.
That is the only definition of a sin – that which never happens.
