My experience of Conscious Awareness in the Present Moment

For years, I have lived in an intentional state of being that shielded me from the experience of life… or at least dulled my sensitivity to it.

When I was 5 years old, a terrifying occurrence of molestation took place and from that day forward, my mind took over the way I processed experiences. Physically I learned to be present but mentally I determined to keep on constructing whatever I could to engage my…

ARCH ENEMIES

Lust, anger and pride are the root causes of all human misery. They are the enemies of peace. Think of the havoc that they bring in one's life. If you can convince yourself that they drain your vitality, and that you should eradicate them for your own well-being, then their conquest becomes easy. Victory over these three arch-enemies is the greatest of all conquests. It makes one a real hero.

TRUE FREEDOM

Physical freedom is no freedom at all. If you are easily carried away by surging emotions, if you are under the grip of moods and passions, how can you be really happy and peaceful? Rigorous discipline and self-imposed restrictions will eventually get rid of all riotous thoughts, impulses, moods, cravings and passions and grant you the freedom of the Self.

KILL THE INNER DEVIL

Can you acquire eternal bliss and supreme peace through the attainment of vast erudition, through possession of immense wealth, through enjoyment of beautiful young women? No. Supreme, undying bliss can only be attained by realizing the Self. Cross the ocean of delusion by killing lust and anger. Then you can laud on the other shore of immortality.

THE INCOMPARABLE ACHIEVEMENT

Neither charity, nor sacrifice, nor fame, nor even possession of great powers can stand in comparison to realization of the Self.

You might have crossed the ocean. You might have conquered your pride, delusion and envy. You might have even dwelt among the gods in heaven. Yet, these attainments are nothing when compared to the bliss of God-realization and liberation.

DO NOT DISPAIR

If you fail to keep your resolves, then make fresh resolves. Just as a child falls many times when it tries to walk without the help of a wall, just as a new cyclist falls from the cycle a number of times before he learns to sit steadily on the seat, so also a new aspirant will fail a number of times in his resolves. He has to make repeated attempts before eventually coming out successful.

THE PATH TO DIVINITY

Action is the source of all virtue, wealth and desire. He who has no activity, has no energy or valour. The end of virtue and wealth is the attain¬ment of salvation. He who does not practice virtue commits sin. The fruit of righteous actions and of wealth accrue to one either in this birth or the next.

Overcome anger by love, lust by purity, greed by liberality, pride by humility, egoism by surrender to God. You will become divine and enjoy eternal bliss.

NO PLEASURE IN OBJECTS

When there is a desire the mind is filled with Rajas. It is in an agitated condition It is restless and unpeaceful.

The mind remains in this restless condition till the desired object is attained. After the object has been attained and enjoyed, it becomes thought-free. Its functions cease for some time, it is filled with Sattwa. It becomes introvert. The bliss of the Atman is reflected in the mind. There is no real pleasure in objects; it is only the bliss of the Atman that one experiences… Continue
