Being more aware creates responsibility. What does responsibility mean? It means the ability to respond. The more conscious you are in your ability to respond, the more creative you’ll be.

We’re hallucinating. And that’s what this world is: a mass hallucination, where fear seems more real than love. Fear is an illusion. Our craziness, paranoia, anxiety and trauma are literally all imagined.

Go into the heart of love, and come from that place in all your choices and decisions, and you will find peace.

The voice in your head also creates a huge amount of problems that aren’t really problems. They’re just things that haven’t happened yet, things that could happen tomorrow or next week. Listening to unreal problems has another name: worrying. That’s what the voice in your head does. It what-ifs. It frets. It agonizes, and you can no longer sense the joy of life.

These days people don’t search for the Truth. People study simply in order to find knowledge necessary to make a living, raise families and look after themselves, that’s all. To them, being smart is more important than being wise!

When we take time to quiet ourselves, we can all sense that our life could be lived with greater compassion and greater weakness.

Choose to be in touch with what is wonderful, refreshing, and healing within yourself and around you.

The real test of compassion is not what we say in abstract discussions but how we conduct ourselves in daily life.

Ever desireless,
One can see the mystery.
Ever desiring,
One can see the manifestations.
These two spring
From the same source
But differ in name.

Freedom from the self

To
free the mind from all conditioning, you must see the totality of it
without thought. This is not a conundrum; experiment with it and you
will see. Do you ever see anything without thought? Have you ever
listened, looked, without bringing in this whole process of reaction?
You will say that it is impossible to see without thought; you will say
no mind can be unconditioned. When you say that, you have already
blocked yourself by thought, for the fact is you do not know.

So
can I look, can the mind be aware of its conditioning? I think it can.
Please experiment. Can you be aware that you are a Hindu, a Socialist, a
Communist, this or that, just be aware without saying that it is right
or wrong? Because it is such a difficult task just to see, we say it is
impossible. I say it is only when you are aware of this totality of your
being without any reaction that the conditioning goes, totally,
deeply—which is really the freedom from the self.
