“Rise above the deceptions and temptations of the mind. This is your duty. Learn to become wise. Desire nothing, give up all desires and be happy. The real spiritual progress of the meditator is measured by the extent to which they achieve inner tranquility and freedom from desire.”

~ Swami Sivananda

Be original

“Think of all the great words and great teachings as your deadly enemy. Avoid them, because you have to find your own source. Don’t be a follower, an imitator. You have to be an original individual; you have to find your innermost core on your own, with no guide, no dogma. It is a dark night, but everybody who has burned with intense inquiry has found the sunrise. Others only believe.”

~ Osho

Witness is the Buddha

“Remember only one quality that Awakening has. That quality is witnessing. Whatever is happening, just be a witness, don’t be identified. You are not the body, you are not the mind, you are not the astral body. You are not the silence. You are only a witness. The witness is the very being of a Buddha.”

~Osho

Self

“That inner Self, as the primeval spirit, eternal, ever effulgent, full and infinite Bliss, single, indivisible, whole and living, shines in everyone as the Witnessing Awareness. That Self in its splendour, shining in the cavity of the Heart as the subtle, pervasive yet unmanifest ether, illumines this universe like the sun.”

~ Ramana Maharshi

Be content

“Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.”

~ Lao Tzu

Meditate on the glory

“When you meditate the glory of the Divine shines forth.You realize then that all along there was something tremendous within you and you did not know it.”

~ Paramahansa Yogananda

Live by truth

“Learn to live without self concern. For this you must know your own true being as indomitable, fearless and ever victorious. Once you know with absolute certainty that nothing can trouble you but your own imagination, you come to disregard your desires and fears, concepts and ideas, and live by truth alone.”

~ Nisargadatta Maharaj

Silence & Stillness

“As you gently relax into awareness, into listening, the mind’s compulsive contraction around objects will fade. Silence of being will come more clearly into consciousness as a welcoming to rest and abide. An attitude of open receptivity, free of any goal or anticipation, will facilitate the presence of silence and stillness to be revealed as your natural condition.”

~ Adyashanti

Meditation – Merging into infinity

“Meditation is the dissolution of thoughts in Eternal awareness; Pure consciousness without objectification, knowing without thinking, merging the finite into infinity.”

~ Swami Sivananda

– Sadguru Jaggi Vasudev
