I have been seeing many people taking responsibility for their difficulties. Many are succeeding in going beyond the game of accusations to knock on the door of the truth. Many people are trying to find the root of their negative repetitions, which means identifying what causes them to fall into the same hole repeatedly. Therefore, I want to honor this movement towards self-responsibility, this awareness of the fact that we are where we put ourselves. This is a major victory.
— Sri Prem Baba (via seedeeply)
The purpose of life is to be at peace, To love all beings, and know who you are. Know your Self and you know everything. This immaculate knowledge alone is, Emptiness alone is. How can you come out of emptiness if there are no limits to it? The appearance of a manifestation is but lila of this Emptiness. Know who you are, here and now, by simply being quiet. You are this moment, introduce yourself to This, do not attach your mind to any direction. No sadhana, no past, no future, not even emptiness of your heart, not even space. To be free forever introduce yourself to this Moment. This Moment is always this Moment, It will not change. It is freedom, free from mind and concepts, and is your fundamental birthright. The best use of this Moment is to drown in It. Keep quiet, you are inside of the inside, do not dwell anywhere and make no effort. The concept of effort and practice is bondage. Just keep quiet, wherever you are, just keep quiet.
