-God cannot be explained... God can only be lived.
-Spiritual freedom is won by one's self for one's self, through watchful and unfailing war against the false self. Those who would be soldiers in the cause of truth have to help others not only in launching upon the thrilling enterprise of attaining victory over oneself, but also in every step they take towards attainment; there is no other way of sharing their burden.
-The infinite truth latent in everything reveals itself only when life is accepted in its totality.
-The purpose of life is to realize God within ourselves. This can be done even whilst attending to our worldly duties. In the everyday walks of life and amidst activities, feel detached and dedicate your doings to our beloved God.
-Always be in readiness to serve the cause of humanity. Select the kind of work you are qualified to do by your individual aptitude and abilities. And whatever service you can render must faithfully be carried out.
-The Truth of divine life is not a hope but a reality. It is the only reality, and all else is illusion. Have faith and you will be redeemed. Have love and you will conquer the lower and limited self of cravings that veil your own true being as God.
-When service is rendered in a selfless spirit, it always benefits the karmayogin although he himself does not do it for the sake of any reward or result.
-Only in the human form is it possible for life to attain its final goal, which is to realize the all-pervading and infinite Divinity. Only in the human body can one attain realization and fulfill the purpose of creation. Hence the supreme importance of attaining the human body.
-Those who cleanse their hearts of the embittering poison of selfishness, hate, and greed find God as their own true self. The truth of divine life is not a hope but a reality, all else is illusion. Have faith and you will be redeemed. Have love and you will conquer the limited self of cravings that veil your own true being as God.
-The energy which is expended in mere thinking, talking or writing is like the steam which escapes through the whistle of the railway engine. The whistle makes a noise, and is even interesting, but it cannot drive the engine. No amount of whistling can move the engine forward. The steam has to be harnessed and used intelligently in order that it may actually take the engine to its destination. That is why the sages have always insisted on practice rather than theory. This applies particularly to those who want to know and realize God.
-The intellect of most persons is harnessed by innumerable wants. Such a life is, from the spiritual point of view the lowest type of human existence. The highest type of human existence is free from all wants; and it is characterised by sufficiency or contentment.
-Desire for nothing except desirelessness. Hope for nothing except to rise above all hopes. Want nothing and you will have everything.
-Solitude is one of the essential conditions of at-taining success in meditation.
-Love God sincerely and he will reveal himself . . , sacrifice everything at the altar of this supreme love, you will realize the Beloved within you.
-The satisfaction derived from the fleeting things of life is not lasting; and the wants of man remain unfulfilled. There is thus a general sense of dissatisfaction accompanied by all kinds of worries.
-The only Real Existence is that of the One and only God, who is the Self in every (finite) self.
-Love is nothing if it is not spontaneous. It cannot be a conclusion of reasoning. It is not a fruit of the spirit of bargain. If you want to be certain about the object of love before giving your love, it is only a form of calculating selfishness.
-The entire life of the personal ego is continually in the grip of wanting, i. e., an attempt to seek fulfilment of desires through things that change and vanish. But there can be no real fulfilment through the transient things.
-The masses who try to attain the Truth by following rites and rituals are, as it were, in the goods train which is detained indefinitely at various stations. Those who sincerely and devotedly meditate on God or dedicate their lives to the service of humanity are, as it were, in the ordinary train which stops at every station according to the time-table. But those who seek the company of the Truth-realized Master and carry out his orders in full surrenderance and faith are, as it were, in a special train which will take them to the goal in the shortest possible time, without halts at intermediate stations.
cosmic truths indeed! <3!
