Everyone thinks that God Realisation is very difficult and it
requires a lot of effort. This is not wrong also because this is
what we have heard from most saints and read in most of the books.
Now listen – there are two things.
1) Turning towards God and
2) Turning away from the world.
Now God is naturally attained – He is ever attained and the world is
always moving away from us. Be silent. Remain in God, let there be
no other thought (Gita 6:25). Do nothing and think of nothing – God
is naturally attained. The attainment of the ever attained.
No thought, no thinking. If a thought comes – it will go. Keep three
things in mind –
(1) the thought is neither good,
(2) the thought is neither bad and
(3) the thought is not in me. Be indifferent to it.
Remaining in God, become silent. If we think we will use nature
(prakriti) and then it will assume importance. Thoughts just come
and go. Do not give them any importance. By doing this, new thoughts
do not come – old thoughts that are inside are going away. The door
through which they come and go are same. From the time we have been
spiritually inclined, have the thoughts not reduced? This shows that
they are going – not coming.
Do not oppose the thoughts. If we oppose them, we will strengthen
them. Just ignore them. They have no power to control us. We are
their master. If a dog enters our house, it does not become the
master of the house. Accept that Paramatma (Supreme Consciousness,
God) IS. The body and world are NOT. Union with Paramatma is
permanent and disunion with the body and world is constant. Remove
what is NOT – Remove what is naturally being removed. And be in the
IS, as this IS-ness is natural. Now, where is the problem? Natural
is what needs no effort.
Only the real IS and the unreal IS NOT (Gita 2:16). Paramatma IS,
and is naturally and ever attained. Be Still ! Paramatma has no
power to leave us. Be situate in the IS.
