If you want the answer to any problem, do not run to a psychiatrist, or a lawyer, or even a doctor, but sit by yourself and listen.
Yourself has all the answers. Why?
For every atom of the universe is within you.
You are that. You are the entire universe.
You are the microcosm in the macrocosm.
Therefore all the answers in the universe must also be in you.
All of the solutions, all of the wisdom, all of the happiness and bliss you’ve been searching for, it’s within you.

That’s what Jesus meant when he said, “I and my Father are one,”
and also, “if you have seen me, you have seen the Father.”
He wasn’t talking about a person called the Father.
He was talking about a universal principal of harmony, of bliss, of joy. He was speaking of consciousness.
It’s within you. It is you. You are that. You have always been that.
It isn’t far away. It’s right where you are.
And as you sit in the silence, and think of these things, you will begin to realize something very interesting.

You will begin to realize and understand, “Well, if my body is consciousness, it cannot be a body, for it cannot be both. It cannot be consciousness and my body.
So it’s duality.”
So as you start to think about the word consciousness in the silence, it is revealed to you that you have no body.
There is only consciousness. And it doesn’t seem strange at all.
For when you begin to understand and fathom what consciousness really is you will realize it is self contained.

Consciousness knows only consciousness.
It doesn’t know the universe. It doesn’t know bodies.
It doesn’t know problems. It doesn’t know wars.
It doesn’t know man’s inhumanity to man.
It doesn’t know anything you know.
It only knows itself as pure awareness.
And as you sit by yourself in the silence this becomes perfectly clear.
And all of a sudden the realization comes to you, “I have no problems.
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with the world.
There is nothing going on. There is only consciousness.”

There are not two worlds. There is not the world of the body, and the world of the universe, and the world of your problems and affairs, and also the world of consciousness.
There is only consciousness and you are that.
Just listening to this sets you free.
It sets you free from all doubt and limitation.
You begin to feel immortality.
You begin to understand that you were never born.
How can consciousness be born?
And if you were never born how can you die? What dies?
Well, some of you say, “The body,” but I tell you there is no body who dies.
There is just nobody home.
There never was a body, there is no body, and there never will be a body.

The Self or the World – 2

The Self or the World – 2


When you come into your Self, the real Self, there is no real vast change in your life.
This is important to understand.
Most people believe when they turn into the Self, they become liberated, then they become a saint of some sort, and they’re walking on cloud nine, they can walk through fire, they will not drown in the ocean, they can jump off bridges and fly.
This happens when you take LSD, (laughter) not when you become self-realized.

When you awaken, you appear the same as you are right now, only you’re totally free. That’s all. You’re completely, totally free.
Your people will still see you the same way you are now.
They will not see any difference.
If they stay with you twenty-four hours a day, they will notice you do not react to things any longer.
They will notice you’ve become an embodiment of peace, that you’re always happy, nothing disturbs you.
But you will still have the same body, so-to-speak, until it’s time to drop it.
There’s absolutely nothing to be afraid of.
It’s a wonderful experience. Why not do it?
I’ve taken away all of the fears from you, all the frustrations, and you know nothing strange is going to happen.
So drop it right now.
Become free, liberated. Let go.

Are you letting go? (laughter)
By the expression of some of you, you’re holding on for dear life. (laughter)
What are you holding on to?
I suppose it’s a little difficult to let go completely, if you ever want to.
Remember it’s taken you so many incarnations to be what you are now.
To have the kind of body that you’re wearing right now, did not come easily.
It didn’t happen. You have to have sort of worked for it.
It is a body that you have earned, so-to-speak, if that’s what you want to believe,
and it’s taken you many incarnations to get this body.
Therefore you are afraid to give it up.
That’s why you are afraid to give it up.

So this is where sadhana comes in.
Now you know the reason we do sadhana.
Sadhana simply makes you strong, mentally, physically, to be able to let go. That’s all sadhana does.
Sadhana never enlightens you.
It makes you one-pointed, in your quest for realization.
It makes you compassionate. It develops humility, power.
It transcends all fear.
And when you finally get to that point, the inner guru grabs a hold of your mind, yanks it into the heart, and you become liberated.

Jnani Robert Adams - Picture Frame

Jnani Robert Adams



“As an example is sleep. When you are asleep there is no universe. As far as you’re concerned you do not exist, the universe does not exist. It’s only when you wake up you say, “Here is the universe, here’s my body.”

This is the reason sleep is given to you. Sleep is not given to you psychologically. Many psychologists and psychiatrists think human beings sleep because they have to rest for a certain amount of time in order to renew and refresh their bodies. This is true in a bodily sense but sleep has a deeper meaning.

Sleep is to make you see that you disappear during sleep. You do not exist. As far as you’re concerned you’re dead.

Therefore the wise person like the Sages of old, the Rishis used to think about these things.” I do not exist in sleep but I awaken and I seem to exist. Therefore what is the truth, who am I?”

They used to ask themselves the question, “Who am I? Where did the I come from? The I that thinks it is sleeping and the I that wakes up? Where did the I come from?”

The great Rishis of old used to think this way and they used to sit in the silence for hours just thinking about this, “Where did I come from?”

When I say, “Where did I come from,” I’m not referring to the body I’m referring to I, the idea of I, the I- thought. “Where does this I-thought come from? How did it arise? Who gave it birth?”

And by asking this question over and over again and keeping still the ancient Rishis were able to perceive the I disappearing into nothingness and they experienced illumination.”
