Perceiving shows that you are not what you perceive

Friday, April 12th, 2013

You observe the heart feeling, the mind thinking, the body acting; the very act of perceiving shows that you are not what you perceive.

Vitality

Sunday, December 30th, 2012

With deep and quiet breathing, vitality will improve, which will influence the brain and help the mind to grow pure and stable and fit for meditation. Without vitality, little can be done, hence the importance of its protection and increase. Posture and breathing are a part of yoga, for the body must be healthy and well under control, but too much concentration on the body defeats its own purpose, for it is the mind that is primary in the beginning. When the mind has been put to rest and disturbs no longer the inner space (chidakash), the body acquires a new meaning and its transformation becomes both necessary and possible.

Earnestness

Monday, June 4th, 2012

It is earnestness that is indispensable, the crucial factor. Sadhana is only a vessel and it must be filled to the brim with earnestness, which is but love in action. For nothing can be done without love.

For Contemplation

It is not what you do, but what you stop doing that matters.

For the Spring

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

“First of all, establish a constant contact with your self, be with yourself all the time. Into self-awareness all blessings flow. Begin as a centre of observation, deliberate cognizance, and grow into a centre of love in action. “I am” is a tiny seed which will grow into a mighty tree – quite naturally, without a trace of effort.”

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

For Contemplation

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

The “here” is everywhere, and the now always. Go beyond the “I-am-the-body” idea and you will find that space and time are in you and not you in space and time. Once you have understood this, the main obstacle to realization is removed.

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

For Contemplation…

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

Stay without ambition, without the least desire, exposed, vulnerable, unprotected, uncertain, alone, completely open to and welcoming life as it happens, without the selfish conviction that all must yield your pleasure or profit, material or so called spiritual.

Nisargadatta Maharaj
