Words of wisdom
« on: October 17, 2011, 12:59:38 PM »

All want to rush out. There is no limit to going out. Happiness lies within and not without. All spiritual teachings are only meant to make us retrace our steps to our Original Source. We need not acquire anything new, only give up false ideas and useless accretions. Instead of doing this, we try to grasp something strange and mysterious because we believe happiness lies elsewhere. This is the mistake. Forgetfulness of your real nature is true death; remembrance of it is rebirth. What appears will also disappear and is therefore impermanent. The Self never appears and disappears and is therefore permanent. It is the only Reality.

Dear Nagaraj,

Annamalai Swami:  By constant self inquiry, 'Who9 had the experience, and who lost it? Who has the yearning to regain it?
Who has all these thoughts about it? If you follow this approach, you will ultimately realize who you really are. The glimpse
of experience you had did not come from somewhere else. It is already within you.  Find out who had the experience.

{In reply to one who said he had the glimpse of the Self but later lost it.}

Arunachala Siva.
