Stray thoughts...

all our expressions become meaningful only when we are able to live/be our expressions. And when we truly do so, then everything will be absolutely meaningful.

Everything that is done is done just for oneself. [the root 'I' does everything for itself] When this doing ceases, Life is Beautiful.

॥ शांतमात्मनि तिष्ट ॥
Remain quietly in the Self.

Wisdom is when we are wise enough to distinguish our own ego-self, only then humility takes over. Thereafter, it will not mind anything, no matter, who says what, if even dirt is thrown upon it, or abused or insulted. As Bhagavan says, upon recognition of ones own ego-self, one will join the other in abusing oneself.

Its just fun thereafter!

Nagaraj garu

Yes - very true. Nochur Acharya says in one his talks (in a lighter vein) that situations which cause sadness, anger etc. are your friends because they are enemies of ego. Enemy of your enemy must be your friend - he says. Very well said...

who is disturbed by nothing material.

Learn to feel yourself in other bodies, to know that we are all one. Throw all other nonsense to the winds. Spit out your actions, good or bad, and never think of them again. What is done is done. Throw off superstition.

तस्माद्धर्मप्रधानेन भवितव्यं यतात्मना ।
तथा च सर्वभूतेषु वर्तितव्यं यथात्मनि ॥


Hence, [keeping these in mind], by self-control and
by making dharma [right conduct] your main focus,
treat others as you treat yourself.


(Mahabarata)

“All power is within you; you can do anything and everything.
Believe in that, do not believe that you are weak;
do not believe that you are half-crazy lunatics,
as most of us do nowadays. You can do any thing and everything,
without even the guidance of any one.
Stand up and express the divinity within you.”


(Swami Vivekananda)

very true, Sri Sanjay, Adversities are blessings, they reveal to us the truth, and make us humble and potential to take us very close to the Truth.

Infact this is a popular proverb :D "the enemy of my enemy is actually my friend" it also appears in one famous movie - aliens and predators

Proving the truth for ego's sake and for Truth's sake, both are meaningless.

    Vanish slowly behind
the events of your life
don’t become them.
 
There is a silence of freedom.
There is inviolable mind
in the space of the dark.
 
Cast a veil, and obscure the root.
You are not what you were,
move on beyond.
 
Bodies do not define us,
the shell of the earth,
we are the fire.
 
Move away silent
behind the face of your life.
Secretly become.


(A. S. Kline)

The Way   - cannot be told.

The Name - cannot be named.The nameless is the Way of Heaven and Earth.The named is Matrix of the Myriad Creatures.Eliminate desire to find the Way.Embrace desire to know the Creature.The two are identical,But differ in name as they arise.Identical they are called mysterious,Mystery on mystery,The gate of many secrets.

Eliminate the ‘sage’: forget ‘wisdom’

People will be a hundred times better off.
Eliminate ‘benevolence’: forget ‘rectitude’,
And people will have filial piety.
Eliminate cleverness: forget profit,
And there’ll be less thieves and rogues.
Superficial things are insufficient,
What is needed is all-embracing.
Exhibit the unadorned.
Hold fast to the un-carved block.
Avoid the thought of Self.
Eliminatpitye desire.

See without the seer.
Think without the thinker.
Observe without the observer.
Act without the actor.
See the truth without any fixation of truth.

The Yoga sutras of Patanjali 2, 27 conveys the following:

तस्य सप्तधा प्रान्तभूमिः प्रज्ञा

Tasya saptadhaa praantabhumih prajnyaa

That final/ultimate truth stage or level of supreme wisdom is manifested sevenfolds*:

The seven folds were also conveyed by Sri Nochur Acharya in one of his talks,

*
  • जिज्ञासा निवृत्ति  Jijnyaasa nivrutti  -  Free from desire to know or learn
  • जिहासा निवृत्ति  Jihaasaa nivrutti  -  Free from desire of giving up
  • प्रेप्सा निवृत्ति  Prepsaa nivrutti  -  Free from assumptions, supposition, free from desire to obtain
  • चिकीर्षा निवृत्ति  chikeershaa nivrutti  -  Free from desire of any form of doing or volition
  • दुःख निवृत्ति  dukha nivrutti  -  Free from distresses
  • भय निवृत्ति  bhaya nivrutti  -  Free from fears
  • आत्मस्थिति  aatmasthitih  -  [it is simple] Being

॥ शांतमात्मनि तिष्ट ॥
Remain quietly in the Self.

Dear Sri Nagaraj, I like this post. It is true,we make surrender too in task. It is still a doing. Do this,dont do that,be still,just being,go beyond. How the hell to do that?! And what is being,what is beyond?! I am being,and still that make me inside of consciousness and its states. It is interesting that all sentences begin with FREE. Can the mind be free? Can the Being be Free? Just,some,my musings.. :) With love and prayers,

LIFE ETERNAL:

When the heart of Amaterasu-Omikami and the heart of man are one, this is eternal life.

When the heart of Amaterasu-Omikami and our hearts are undivided, then there is no such thing as death.

When we know that all things are the activity of Heaven, then we know neither pain nor care.

One should make the separated-spirit (bunshin) of Amaterasu-Omikami (i.e the human soul) full and not lacking. When the spirit
of cheerfulness is weakened then the spirit of depression prevails - there is defilement. Defilement is a withering spirit (kegare we
ki kare ni te.). It dries up the Spirit of Light.

- Munetada ( a Shintoist Prophet.)
