When you look skywards, your eye rests on ‘something’, and you try to find beauty in that ‘thing’. You say, ‘Look at those clouds, what
Real Godliness is found only by atheists.
To be an atheist means that you are first doing complete neti-neti (not this – not that). So complete that you have negated even god. And only when you have completely cleansed your mind of all the concepts, including the ‘concept of god’, that you can move into real mysticism now.
Forget the noise; just don’t be afraid of Love.
Noise is so lame, so powerless.
We talk of the enemy outside as if he is so powerful, what we don’t want to say is that we disregard the lover inside.
When you are not prepared to be with the friend inside, only then the enemy outside appears so powerful.
Otherwise, he has no power.
You should stop seeing differences, because if you see differences where they do not exist, then you will fail to see differences where they actually exist. And only one difference exists, that between the True and the false. Everything else is the same. So stop differentiating. Stop seeing diversity where it really does not exist. This cessation of unnecessary diversity, false diversity, is also called Samabhaava (equanimity). Things are coming and going, but because I see that what is coming and going is essentially the same, hence there is actually no coming and going.
Seen anybody who wants anything except Peace?
Even when you are chasing excitement, you are chasing Peace through excitement. Even when you are being violent, you want Peace through violence.
Ultimately you want nothing except Peace.
Would it not be then foolish to say that you do not know Peace? Had you not known it, how could it have been echoing inside you constantly?
Not only do you know it, you remember it without break. It is a continuous music, an incessant resonance within you. You don’t even need reminders.
