Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Your sincerity will guide you.
Devotion to the goal of freedom and perfection will make you abandon all theories and systems and live by wisdom, intelligence and active love.
Theories may be good as starting points, but must be abandoned, the sooner — the better.

Man alone can destroy in himself the roots of pain.
Others can only help with the pain, but not with it's cause,

which is the abysmal stupidity of mankind.


Gotta luv it.

You have to meditate

You have to meditate. It won’t be available free. The necessary threshold is through consciousness only. You have to imbibe and be consciousness. In the process of being in the consciousness, you come out of it, and there you see; and meditation is the only remedy.

“It is always the false that makes you suffer, the false desires and fears, the false values and ideas, the false relationships between people. Abandon the false and you are free of pain; truth makes happy, truth liberates.”
