Interference Of The Ego !

  • If our ego does not interfere, our heart and intellect act under divine guidance

  • Egotism can ruin everything. You have to learn that egotism has no place in spiritual life, in the form of either insolence or despair.

  • Try to get rid of the ego. A close watch should be kept all along the path. The ego may take the form of superiority or inferiority. Try to humiliate it and get rid of it. The ego is an impostor masquerading as ourselves. We are the Self, an entirely different thing.

  • It is unfortunate not to meet with humiliation, because humiliation is the best way to get rid of this "I".

  • Beware of any outgoing tendency of the mind, of so-called doing good with the egotistic sense of helping anyone. God alone helps man.

  • Any idea of yourself except the true idea of Self is egotism. A man who whines is an egotist and a man who shouts is also an egotist; neither of these attitudes is acceptable to God. But there is another approach, a childlike approach; that is the kind of thing God wants.

  • If we can forget our own tremendous interest in the ego, extraordinary powers of the Spirit will manifest

  • Those who say "It is the will of God" just say so to stop any further thinking.

  • If you want to commune with God, it is done with the enlargement and expansion of your conscious mind. This mind becomes superconscious

  • Ignorance often functions by denying the thing of which we are ignorant.

  • With the conscious mind alone we can reach the highest, without the use of the unconscious mind

  • ~Swami Ashokananda

148 birthday of swami vivekananda !

The mind has to be made malleable like clay. Just as clay sticks wherever you throw it, so the mind must be made to dwell upon whatever object you concentrate it.

A tremendous stream is flowing toward the ocean, carrying us all along with it; and though like straws and scraps of paper we may at times float aimlessly about, in the long run we are sure to join the Ocean of Life and Bliss.

We are ever free if we would only believe it, only have faith enough. You are the soul, free and eternal, ever free, ever blessed. Have faith enough and you will be free in a minute.

Change is always subjective. To talk of evil and misery is nonsense, because they do not exist outside. If I am immune from all anger, I never feel angry. If am immune from all hatred, I never feel hatred

Spiritual Awakening Sayings From Swami Turiyananda

A Grain of Truth will cover a whole world of delusion. Get up be strong , and realize the truth. This is th greatest life.

Rather than smearing the body with mud and then undergoing the trouble of washing , it not better to keep at a safe distance from mud ?

Spirituality depends solely on continence..when there is no continence,the mind becomes restless, it does not reflect the vision of the chosen Ideal. Therefore , one should always be on the alert to keep one's senses under control.

Happiness Of Rich And Poor !

The only difference between a rich man and a poor one is that the rich is comfortably uncomfortable while the poor is uncomfortably uncomfortable ! If you are rich and empty,your emptiness is more intense than that of a poor,because what a poor man is dreaming about as the source of happiness,the rich already has but is still not happy !

Real Happiness is self realization, unless you achieve this , will always search for external happiness.

Blossom Quotes On Meditation !

Meditation is to be absolutely comfortable with yourself so that you are totally at peace with the whole creation. Meditation is constant awareness and that Awareness is the Truth.

Meditation is not against the worship of form, but ultimately every form of worship must resolve in the formlessness.

Your concern in meditation is not on what thoughts arise-but in whose presence those thoughts surface upon !

Meditation is like a flower blooming. When we plant seed,we can water it and nurture it,till the seedling grows. Then finally one day when the bud comes it has to bloom by itself. We cant do anything to force it open. When we understand our thoughts,perceptions meditation automatically happens. You cannot get out of it!

By Nature Itself We Are In Positive Thoughts !

Everything that comes into our life should either stay with us and become our strenght , or it should leave us and make us free.It should never stay with us and become our weakness.
