Limited to a universe. In other words you have created your own jail, your own cell. Yet what are we to do? How do we free ourselves?

We free ourselves by not freeing ourselves. When you try to do something to be free you're merely adding on to what you know already. To be free you have to become silent, quiet, peaceful. You have to have compassion, loving kindness. To be free one must give up all of their doubts, their fears, their dogmas, everything. One has to surrender totally and completely, total surrender if you would be free.

Surrender to whom?

If you are a bhakta you would surrender to your guru, to a deity of your choice. If you were a christian you would surrender to jesus. If you were a buddhist you would surrender to Buddha. If you were of the jewish persuasion you would surrender to abraham or moses. If you were a hindu you would surrender to Krishna or Shiva or anyone of a thousand deities. Surrender purifies the mind, removes the impurities and ultimately sets you free.”

Robert Adams (from ‘just the satsangs’)

This is an excellent post and I agree with it completely. Many people do not understand the real value of bhakti

I know! Right?!


Interesting the transcribers of his sat sangs, (not Robert), only capitalized Buddha and Krishna and Shiva?
Why not Jewish or Jesus or Abraham? Rhetorical.

You are right ... never noticed. Probably oversight.

“ There is one very important way in which to alleviate all problems, alleviate all error, alleviate all ignorance and find your true Self. And that way is to love yourself. To really love yourself. It sounds easy but try it it's not easy to totally and completely love yourself just the way you are. When you begin to love yourself this way you automatically rise to a higher state of consciousness. For you're loving the Self when you love yourself. You are really loving the one Self which is omnipresent and all-pervading. Therefore when you love yourself you love everything that exists. Nothing is left out of that love. Nothing. And this is what raises your consciousness. This is what transforms you. Forget about being enlightened, awakening. That will take care of itself.”

“ Remember there are not two selves. There's not a higher self and a lower self. There's only the Self, and you are that, just the way you are right now, this moment. There's nothing you have to do to make it happen, to make it appear. You do not have to beseech it, or petition it, or pray to it, or desire it, or want it. You have to be! Just be! Be that which you always were. Be that now, this moment, pure unconditioned Self, the Brahman.”

“ become like a person who does not react to things. Do not judge things. Leave things alone and become totally free. Why not do this now?

Those of you who have trouble with what I'm talking about and need a technique to work with. There is a technique we can practice together, that will help tremendously. We'll do this now.

Close your eyes. As you inhale say to yourself, "Who am I?" Before you exhale say to yourself, "I am Brahman," and as you exhale say to yourself, "I am not the body." You're inhaling you say, "Who am I?" In between inhaling and exhaling you say, "I am Brahman," and exhale and you say, "I am not the body."

If you don't like to use the word Brahman, you can change it to whatever you like. You can say I am the Christ, I am Buddha. Say whatever you want. But understand what you're doing. You are declaring the truth about yourself. "Who am I?" as you inhale, "I am Brahman," before you exhale, "I am not the body," with exhalation. Let's practice this for a while.”

“Advaita means non-duality and there is only one power and there is no power in effect. There is only one. That one is you. It is not your body or your mind or your affairs or the world or the universe. It is one reality, one consciousness, one truth. That one is divine grace. The ultimate reality. The bliss consciousness, the love. It is all in oneness and you are that.”

Stop using your mind. Use your heart. Stop judging, condemning, coming to your own conclusions. For you are doing this in your own mind. Everything is alright just the way it is. Everything is perfect just the way it is. And now you know why? Because there is only one! One power! So everything has to be perfect. The one has no competition. There is not God and the devil. There is only God.”

There is not God and the devil. There is only God.
When I first read this exactly said by Joel S. Goldsmith in "Practicing the Presence" many years ago...
it was such a revelation...What? There is only ONE - One.
What a thing to contemplate and 'get'.

“Learn to be still. When I say, "Learn to be still I'm not referring to meditate." Remember when you meditate there has to be a subject and an object. When I say, "To be still," just be still. Be still, do not think of anything special. Just be still, quiet. I'm not speaking of being still over here alone, in everyday life.”
