  1. Everyone post some favorite quotes!

    "Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the Universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors." ~Andrew Boyd
  2. "Generally it is the nose ring that is admired and valued, and not the nose. Similarly, it is that which is visible that is valued, and not the Self."

    Ā 

    ~Shri Samarth Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

  3. "The remarkable and rare can be accomplished only by doing something rare, and remarkably different from what others do."

    Ā 

    ~Shri Samarth Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

  4. "After Liberation, what is remaining is flawless Brahman.

    Now what exists is not in the realm of experience, because without our going to meet it, it is as it is, without trying to remember it. It is not something objective that can be remembered. Memory disappears together with forgetfulness. It is beyond truth and untruth. It is not truth, and it is not untruth.

    'That' which is, is. What 'That' is, cannot be told. Mind and intellect do not reach there. Words cannot express it."

    ~Shri Samarth Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

  5. The Natural Yoga

    Hmmm. Tempting.
  6. The Natural Yoga

    Without your being aware that you are, there is no God. Thus, consciousness is itself God. And thus, "God is my devotee." As a self-identified body-mind complex you shall only do as you are so led, in accordance with your particular inclinations; free-balling, or otherwise.
  7. The Natural Yoga

    I'd say experience is available. As consciousness is all-pervading, one has the potential of assuming any role, including that of being an instrument through which life seems to do its living... or dying. But even that presupposes an actual other living or dying apart from consciousness. Realizing the source of consciousness, is to be beyond knowledge and ignorance, departures and arrivals, life and death, experience and nothingness. The "I" which wakes from dream or sleep exists prior to the dreaming or waking experiences. That "I" declares it slept well within its source of not-knowing-ness. The direct experience that you are is indisputable. Being that from which this sense arises, is ineffable.

  9. "Listen to the "Master Key." I shall tell you what Knowledge is in one sentence.

    Ā 

    One in whom conceptualization has ceased is the Jnani."

    ~Shri Samarth Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

  10. "There is a game of madness, and it was decided that you must keep on playing this game win or lose, pleasure or pain, and you must keep experiencing it. You call it pleasure, but it must be killed. There is real happiness in killing the enjoyment, but people keep up the imagination, which is really only suffering. If you have killed the enjoyment, that is good. However, the killer of enjoyment must also die."

    ~Shri Samarth Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

  11. "The primary urge or movement that arises in Brahman is God. That itself, is what is called God, and it is the Primal Illusion (MoolaMaya)."

    Ā 

    ~Shri Samarth Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

  12. "All differences are due to ego. See what a strange thing has happened! God is sacrificed before the goat."

  14. I'm a bit surprised to say the least. For someone who once basically dismissed my Guru's teachings as pointless, it seems odd you've considered his recommended reading list... not to mention now having the motivation to assemble a compilation of direct pointers.
  15. 2.19 Recognising that all this and my body too are nothing, while my true Self is nothing but pure consciousness, what is there left for the imagination to work on now?
