You can’t solve a problem with the wrong tool. When a shovel is needed, you have to use a shovel. When a pick is needed, you have to use a pick. This is so easy to understand. But the mind in the mechanical state is not capable of understanding.

Your existence is simple. Your relationship to Existence is simple. The truth of your Being is simple. The purpose of your life is simple. How do we arrive at that simplicity?

To become connected to the reality of your existence, you only need to taste I exist. It’s so difficult for the mind to accept it could be that simple.

Everything has the same Source. But in manifestation, everything has its own unique quality. There are not two atoms in the entire universe that are identical. So to understand the universe, we have to relate to it in two ways.

There are two kinds of experiences. You bang up your car, and you say, “What a bad experience.” But that’s not really an experience. That’s just an event going through its cycle.

In the taste of I am, there is the wisdom to let others be. When we look at others from the outside, we criticize or blame them, because our perspective is unconscious. In the taste of I am, you may become a little bit free from slavery to your crystallizations, prejudices, your “shoulds” and “shouldn’ts.”

Water flows from the mountain down toward the ocean. It is not anxious to get there, nor is it sorry when it’s just begun to flow.

We are all pregnant with the seed of Consciousness. We need to cultivate and nurture that seed so it can grow. Just as a pregnant woman needs to give herself good food and nourishment, we need to remember the seed of Consciousness within us.

When you have one moment in which you begin to wake up, that’s the only thing that’s important. If you put the emphasis there, then you can see that all your background crystallizations and conditioning are just material to be used. How do you use it?

Thought doesn’t care about the universe. It doesn’t care about Consciousness. It just wants to be a king. But because of it, the universe is dynamic.

When you see thoughts are just thoughts, you are not a thought. You are that which sees the thought. You don’t lose track of who you are. When you put money in the bank, you don’t think you are that money, do you?

Why do we need to raise our level of consciousness? Because our mechanical mind and feelings don’t have light. They don’t see. They stick to the surface, to the periphery.

If something exists, it has is-ness. Its is-ness never disappears. It’s permanent. All is-ness is eternal. Every moment of Existence is an eternal moment.

Everything that has life could inspire us, provided we connect to its existence, instead of to its form or name. That’s why we need Consciousness, because Consciousness can see things as they are.

If you look at a cherry tree, you see a few cherries are very ripe and ready to pick. Some are mostly red, but have a little green still. And some are mainly green. Some are all green. And others are green and tiny. And there are also blossoms that haven’t yet become fruit.

Our thoughts don’t belong to us. They are an outer layer, subject to mass consciousness. Thoughts come from other thoughts, which come from our sensory perceptions.

To find reality, you have to come to yourself. You find the meaning of the word “whole” in yourself. Because that’s what you are. The whole is not something separate from you. How can you verify this for yourself?

What the word “whole” means cannot be described. Where can you find parameters for the word “whole”? The mind can’t really relate to it, because it’s beyond concept.

When you see things as they are, and yourself as you are, you understand the meaning of “the truth shall set you free.” Your aim becomes to have your Being manifest in your life as much as possible.

When your eyes open to what is taking place around you on this planet, you may see that the only solution is for us to find the right attitude towards life. We can’t have a correct attitude just by someone telling us about it, because our own crystallizations don’t allow us to hear.

If we take the universe to be only material, evolution is limited to the evolution of matter and energy. But when it comes to man, another possibility is given. And that’s the evolution of consciousness.

Taste is the only thing that has both aspects of Existence in it—personal and impersonal.

Existence has one unified purpose. No part can have a purpose separate from the purpose of the whole.

We have to practice body-mind connection. Work with it. Keep going with it and you gradually discover a new way of studying, a new way of relating, a new way of connecting.

Ordinarily, when we look at something that seems “not so good,” we want to make it good. We create imbalance, because we swing between good and bad, and we miss the middle. But Conscious energy is steady and doesn’t miss the middle. The middle is the interconnectedness of all aspects.

As long as you think you are this body and this name, your eyes are closed to reality. When you come to the body, when you actually know you have a body, you know you are not this name, not this body. Then what are you?

The whole is not a collection of all the parts. The whole is independent of the parts. The parts exist because of the whole. But the whole does not exist because of the parts.

You may at times ask yourself, “How can God, Absolute Awareness, find me among the seven billion other people and let me know what I’m supposed to do?” We were given that knowledge at the very beginning. The Absolute is not separate from the life you call you. It’s all that exists. It’s very simple.

A man found a gold coin and put it in his pocket. After a little while, he doubted that he had really found a gold coin. He put his hand in his pocket, but it wasn’t there. He did it again—still not there. He kept on doing that, until a passerby said, “What’s the problem?”

Understanding is prior to words, prior to knowledge. Understanding has to first be there, then I can manifest it, and then it could be helpful to others. But if it’s not there, whatever I say is just information. Understanding starts with the unification of body, mind, and feelings.
