Jnana Marga – The Path Of Knowledge
There’s only one I actually, and that I is consciousness.
When you follow the personal I to the source, it turns into the universal I, which is consciousness.
Begin to catch yourself. Begin to realize your divine nature.
And you do this by keeping quiet.
The fastest way to realization is to keep silent.
Yet you have to know why you are keeping silent.
This is why you can’t tell this to the average person.
If a person has no inkling of Advaita Vedanta, you cannot say keep silent.
For to them it means just to be quiet.
They don’t realize it means to go deep, deep, deep, deep within, to that place where absolute reality lives, and that’s the silence.
Actually the human body cannot keep silent.
There’s something else that enters the silence.
It has nothing to do with your humanity.
It’s only after years perhaps of meditation in previous lives, that you can be mature enough to really know what this path is all about.
When I give you these practices, it’s not for you as a human being.
You appear to be able to go through it as a human being, but I can assure you your humanity has nothing to do with it.
When you enter the silence you enter a profound peace, bliss consciousness, pure awareness.
That’s what the silence is. It’s not being quiet. It’s beyond that.
It’s not just quieting your mind, like I say all the time.
It’s understanding that there’s no mind to quiet.
When you realize there’s no mind, you automatically become silent.
When you still think you’ve got a mind, you make every effort to quiet the mind, and you can’t.
How many of you believe you can quiet the mind through effort?
You can’t do that. It’s not the effort that makes you quiet your mind.
It’s the intelligent understanding that you have no mind to begin with.
Then you just keep still and everything takes care of itself.
If you have to meditate, by all means meditate.
This path is never against any other method, due to the fact they all eventually lead to awakening.
You have to do whatever you have to do.
But for those who can understand what I’m talking about, and realize you’re dealing with no mind, no body, no world, no universe, no God, an awakening comes immediately, because there’s no one who is sleeping.
Do you follow this?
