You cannot know yourself by trying to “get it,” because you cannot put yourself inside your mind. The self which you “know” cannot be you, because you are a combination of is and is not, always together. If you get stuck in the is aspect, it’s not you, because you’ve left out is not.

That which exists ceaselessly emanates the joy of Existence, balance and harmony, wisdom and connectedness. It is not related to the word “was” or the words “will be.” Only to is. It is free from the words “good” and “bad.” It’s free from “real” and “unreal.” It is always and everywhere the essential nature of all things, and therefore maintains the unity and harmony of the entirety.

If I think that joy or wisdom or aliveness comes from what I do and what others do, I’m on the wrong track. From that one misconception, I start to believe that this world and everything outside of me are here to make me happy.

If you suffer for the suffering of the world, you only increase the quantity of suffering. What is needed is to understand it. The more you understand, the less you suffer.

The meaning of science and the meaning of religion have to become one in order for us to receive the truth in them. What can make these two into one? You, yourself. All the conflicts and contradictions have to get solved in you.

When you formulate about reality, it’s about reality, not reality itself. It’s the story of the real.

You can’t experience life in your thoughts. You can only think about life. You can choose to think about anything you want, but it won’t bring you the taste of that thing.

When you move your hand, what’s happening? Awareness is manifesting, but you are asleep.

Once you taste real life, once you enter into it, you have no choice but to fall in love with it.

There is always a present moment, and every possibility we have exists in that moment. If you practice being present for a while, you’ll see that which becomes present is free from your thoughts, your feelings, and your sensations, and free from your physical body.

Those who are satisfied with simple things and want to take one small step have more possibility than those who want to be a hero and ask for something big to do. Big things are what you’re not going to do, but something small, you might.

By putting what you know into practice, you draw benefit from it. True spiritual existence is a reality, but it’s not in the form of words, sentences, or concepts you can place in your mind and possess as though they are yours. What you hear has to be examined many times and verified by you.

We have to awaken understanding within us. It’s asleep, covered by everything from outside, everything we’ve accepted as true based on assumption. We are asleep, with eyes and ears open only to the outside.

The study of yourself should start with the physical body. By studying it, we see how thought works, how feelings work, and how the senses work. What is their purpose? This study takes a long time, but it is the foundation of a correct study, and can’t be eliminated.

A proper direction for self-study would be to move away from thought based on the senses, toward the dimension in which we consider both the temporal and Timeless aspects of Existence. Then we could understand that part and whole are unseparated.

We have to look at both ourself and the universe as multidimensional. When we rise to a higher dimension, we can clearly see the dimension below. Real seeing is always from higher to lower, never from lower to higher.

To understand the universe and life as a whole, Self-understanding is needed. To understand oneself, some understanding of the universe and the process of life is also needed. So a correct study is the parallel study of the universe and of oneself.

We constantly need new understanding, because in this dynamic universe, we can’t be static. Nothing in the universe can remain stationary. Everything has to increase or decrease in consciousness. Movement is the dynamic of the universe.

We don’t distinguish knowing from understanding. When we know, we think we understand. But it’s not so. Knowing and understanding are in entirely different dimensions.

Seeing you are simultaneously the event, the Consciousness that sees, and the Awareness which is the Source of that Consciousness, is Self-transformation.

You relate mechanically to the self as your body. But when you relate to that which sees the body, meaning that which sees the life within this body, that “see-er” is your self.

If we wish to see, we see. If I hold something in front of your face and say “Look,” you can choose to shut your eyes. No matter how long I hold it there, I can’t make you look.

We are created in the likeness and image of the ultimate intelligence of Existence. A grain of that intelligence has been deposited in us.

Everything in Breema is directed towards one simple basic aim—Self-understanding. How could it be possible for you to understand anything without understanding yourself?

Thought arises from another thought. Realization arises from the depth of one’s Being-existence. To realize, even knowledge is not needed. What’s needed is to recognize our union with the Source.

We are all children that come from the same Source, and return to the same Source. Sometimes, experiences that our temporary aspect passes through are necessary to help us turn toward the sun instead of looking at our shadow.

Fear of the future drains our energy. Save your energy for when the future comes by living in the present. Then when the future arrives you’ll have more ability to deal with it.

All that we need in reality is this very moment. In the depth of emptiness, fullness sprouts. All that happens in life is a blessing for the man who does not compromise his relationship to the truth.

In your head, you can deny anything. You can contradict any philosophy. You can deny God, religion, science. But you can’t deny the fact that you exist.
