01/02/2011: Where Words and Thoughts Turn Back

Initial silence is followed by spiritual instruction about abidance as the Self, inquiry to realize the nature of one's Being and the Knowledge of Consciousness. Dialogues on layers of the mind and Consciousness, interpretation of the Vedas and Gita, the Self beyond name, happiness and Being, who misidentifies, absence of an ignorant one, freedom from the ego, nonattachment and freedom from the misconception of being the performer of action, and other spiritual topics. Concludes with a recitation in Sanskrit and English of verses from the Ashtavakra Samhita.

****** Quote from Satsang ******



Nome: One thing seems important and then another thing seems important. Really it is your thought of it that seems important. The quality of importance, the quality of it being real, remains the same. The particular thoughts or objects keep changing. From where does the sense of importance come from then? It cannot be coming from the things. There is nothing intrinsically important about your thought no matter what the thought. The importance is being placed by you upon it. Trace the sense of importance to find what is truly important. When you feel something is important, it feels real to you, it seems to have part of your identity wrapped up in it. Indeed your happiness is woven into it. Trace reality, happiness, identity, which are all the same nature, to their source. Thereby you find what is truly important, the importance itself, and that is constant.
