All is His doing, no doubt. What is it to me, since I want nothing?

What can God give me, or take away from me? What is mine is mine and was mine even when God was not. Of course, it is a very tiny little thing, a speck - the sense 'I am', the fact of being. This is my own place, nobody gave it to me. The earth is mine; what grows on it is God's.

You are always after the improvement of the world. Do you really believe that the world is waiting for you to be saved?

Without you is there a world? You know all about the world, but about yourself you know nothing.

Did God come and tell you that the world is His creation and concern and not yours? Consider. The world in which you live, who else knows about it? Did anybody come from outside of your world to tell you? Myself and everybody else appear and disappear in your world. We are all at your mercy.

You are completely wrapped up in the world of your own making.

Within the prison of your world appears a man who tells you that the world of painful contradictions, which you have created, is neither continuous nor permanent and is based on a misapprehension. He pleads with you to get out of it, by the same way by which you got into it. You got into it by forgetting what you are and you will get out of it by knowing yourself as you are.
When you are free of the world, you can do something about it. As long as you are a prisoner of it, you are helpless to change it. On the contrary, whatever you do will aggravate the situation.

To help you God must know your existence. But you and your world are dream states.

In dream you may suffer agonies. None knows them, and none can help you.

All your questions, your search and study are but the stirrings of a man who is tired of sleeping. They are not the causes of awakening, but its early signs. But, you must not ask idle questions, to which you already know the answers.

A true answer you will get by asking a true question - non-verbally, but by daring to live according to your lights. A man willing to die for truth will get it.

The jnani is the supreme and also the witness. He is both being and awareness. In relation to consciousness he is awareness. In relation to the universe he is pure being.

The person is a very small thing. Actually it is a composite, it cannot be said to exist by itself. Unperceived, it is just not there. It is but the shadow of the mind, the sum total of memories.

Pure being is reflected in the mirror of the mind, as knowing. What is known takes the shape of a person, based on memory and habit. It is but a shadow, or a projection of the knower onto the screen of the mind.
