Thoughts

Belief is extremely powerful, but only if you truly believe with complete faith. You cannot force yourself to have that faith, it comes by looking and seeing that faith is here now, driving your experience NOW.

There is infinite language. Because of memory there is language. But all that I ‘remember’ is my projection of reality. What is memory? Where is it? Language is beyond the mind and is unfathomable.

When i inquire into how these projected superstitions are built, i cannot find the one who made them. The ego cannot project, it is itself projection.

If the mind is happy, not only the body but the whole world will be happy. So one must find out how to become happy oneself. Wanting to transform the world without discovering one’s true self is like trying to cover the whole world with leather to avoid the pain of walking on stones and thorns. It is much simpler to wear shoes. ~ Sri Ramana Maharshi

No evolution occurs when we focus upon that which we don’t want. Being outraged or upset by the government, sexism, racism, all manner of general ignorance is natural and shows us what we do not prefer; but when we focus upon this we hold the thought vibration of that which we don’t want in our minds, thus attracting it in our lives. It is important when raising awareness about these issues that we do not focus on demonising the current model and institutions, but instead propagate knowledge of real alternatives and plant the seed of possibility. We must emit the attitude we want to see in the world and in others. If we don’t know the solution/alternative yet, we can simply hold space and keep our hearts open to possibility.

We need art, art inspires, art is divine- but what we really need is who we are being when we look at art… to appreciate art we look at it with detachment and look at our responses to it in an equanimous way knowing the piece itself has no inherent meaning, is not ‘real’, and was designed intelligently from the inexhaustible need to express which needs no name or reason. We know the art is more than just the piece itself, but the feelings and thoughts it evokes. We know that the art has no inherent meaning and multiple interpretations can be made from it. Instead of taking life personally, consider the whole world is performance art and even our thoughts and feelings are part of the play…. who is the watcher?

"Self-enquiry is freedom from the ego, not freedom for the ego"

"The mind is apparently making someone’s life hell and you call this someone you.
And this ‘you’ who is suffering from the mind is now trying to go beyond the mind.
It says ‘ Help me Mooji, to make this leap.’
But to make this leap is just another thought arising in That which is already beyond the mind.
Become aware of that Power now which is unaffected by the mind-play.
Don’t miss my pointing.
Go directly to this Awareness space for right there is where all the mind’s cunning plays are exposed as mere imagination.
Feel the power of sacred presence.
Just be there.
It does not suffer, nor can it be attacked by thoughts.
It is immaculate - untouched.
Yourself and It are one.
Confirm this.
It is the Sage’ s abode."

If it wasn’t for meditation/mindfulness my propensity for narcissistic neuroticism would have probably lead me into some pretty dark/desperate places and situations by now. Even if you think you are the most fucked up and irredeemable person on earth, daily meditation can help you realise peace of mind if you really want it.

"The good thing about all this, is that anybody can become liberated, at any moment. But this is because you are already liberated. If you were not liberated, you would never be able to become liberated. But because you’re already liberated, all you’re really doing is taking off the stuff that makes you think you’re not liberated, dark clouds, the layers and layers of nonsense, garbage, that you covered yourself with all of these years. The thought “I am important, I am somebody”. This is what keeps you in bondage."
