LISTEN TO ASHTAVAKRA. :
”IF YOU CAN SEPARATE YOURSELF FROM THE PHYSICAL BODY, AND REST IN CONSCIOUSNESS, THEN THIS VERY MOMENT YOU WILL BE HAPPY, AT PEACE, AND FREE OF BONDAGE.”
Right here, right now, this very moment. ”If you can separate yourself from the physical body, and
rest in consciousness.” If you begin to see the fact, ”I am not the body, I am not the doer and enjoyer: I am that one hidden within me who sees all….
When childhood came it saw childhood, when youth came it saw youth, when old age came it saw old age. Childhood did not stay, so I cannot be childhood. It came and passed, still I am. Youth did not stay, so I cannot be youth. It came and passed, still I am. Old age came, and it is also going, so I cannot be old age.
HOW CAN I BE THAT WHICH COMES AND GOES? I AM ALWAYS.
The one to whom childhood comes, to whom youth comes, to whom old age comes… to whom thousands of things have come and gone. I am that one eternal ,everlasting.”
Like railway stations they go on changing: childhood, youth, old age, birth.
The traveller keeps moving. You never think you have become one with train stations. Coming to Poona station you donot think you are Poona. When you reach Manmad you don’t think you are Manmad.
You know thatPoona has come and gone, Manmad has come and gone. You are a traveller. You are the observer that saw Poona: Poona came; who saw Manmad: Manmad came. You are the one who sees.
THE FIRST THING, SEPARATE WHAT IS HAPPENING FROM THE OBSERVER.
”… separate yourself from the physical body, and rest in consciousness…” There is nothing else
JUST AS Lao Tzu’s KEY SUTRA IS SURRENDER, ASHTAVAKRA’S KEY SUTRA IS REST, RELAXATION.
There is nothing to do.
