As you watch your mind, you discover your self as the watcher. When you stand motionless, only watching, you discover your self as the light behind the watcher… ~ Nisargadatta
There is in the body, a current of energy, affection and intelligence, which guides, maintains and energizes the body. Discover that current and stay with it… ~ Nisargadatta
The ocean of life contains all, not only humans… ~ Nisargadatta Maharaj
From the point of view of Self-Realization or enlightenment, there are no individuals. The Self, or God, exists as all manifestation. As our spiritual knowledge grows, our identification with the individual body-mind diminishes and our consciousness expands into universal consciousness. The life force continuous to act but its thoughts and actions are no longer limited to an individual; they become the total manifestation.
If you seek reality you must set yourself free of all backgrounds, of all cultures, of all patterns of thinking and feeling. Even the idea of being man or woman, or even human should be discarded. The ocean of life contains all, not only humans. So, first of all abandon all self-identification, stop thinking of yourself as such-and-such or so-and-so, this or that. Abandon all self-concern, worry not about your welfare, material or spiritual, abandon every desire, gross or subtle, stop thinking of achievement of any kind. You are complete here and now, you need absolutely nothing… ~ Nisargadatta Maharaj
Once you realize that the world is your own projection, you are free of it. You need not free yourself of a world that does not exist, except in your own imagination! However is the picture, beautiful or ugly, you are painting it and you are not bound by it. Realize that there is nobody to force it on you, that it is due to the habit of taking the imaginary to be real. See the imaginary as imaginary and be free of fear. ~ Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
If you can change yourself you will find that no other change is needed. To change the picture you merely change the film, you do not attack the cinema screen! Clarify your mind, purify your heart, sanctify your life…this is the quickest way to a change of your world… ~ Nisargadatta Maharaj
