Listening is the light, the Guru, the dispeller of the darkness (mind)
Do you (mind) want words to work upon your life? Or, you would continue in your mechanism by which mind wipes out all wisdom from profound utterances in words and keeps you amused in the wicked re-formulation and re-fabrication of your ‘I’ denying the precious freedom from the mind to be re-born into life again! You are using words as gloves on your hand to protect your stupid mind and knocking out the living quality of life! You use words to entangle with your cravings and to escape from your fear.
On whomsoever the words from Shibendu would shower Blessings and Grace, him shall Shiva rob of all ideas, images and everything that he desperately holds on to!
Can you listen to the following words (rather behind the words, beyond the words)?
It is not the ‘will to do’, but the ‘wisdom not to do’ – that really matters!
If you see a lame man, you need not become lame for understanding his lameness! Don’t conform and become. Be in comprehension and bliss.
Swadhyay is not self-consciousness, nor a self-centred activity.
Anger dwells in a human body full of foolishness.
Gravitation is responsible for objects falling on the earth, but gratification is responsible for people falling in so called ‘love’.
Intelligence is immediate and, therefore, is not of intellect. Understanding is simple, but not simpler!
The so-called understanding is usually a collection and conditioning without cleanliness and creativity.
Education interferes with our learning from moment to moment.
Pure oil of awareness is fully refined from the crude oil of vanity and vested interests.
Technological progress is an axe in the hands of pathological politicians and priests.
When thought declares certainty and permanency such as God, be sure that it does not refer to Reality. Freedom from the stranglehold of thought is the first and the last step to Reality.
Theology formulated by mind is ship-wrecked by the laughter of life.
In order to be an immaculate member of a flock of sheep (sect or cult) – one must, above all, be a sheep.
Fear and fragmentation ridden consciousness cannot find anything Real.
Thought being dead cannot touch life, love and liberty.
Life is existential joy. Mind is eventual jitters of boredom and sorrow.
To be in life, you don’t have to do a thing. But to be in mind and its everlasting phenomenon of becoming, you must go on killing yourself in doing something or the other always. Life is not interested in any of your religious, spiritual or material goals!
Naming brings about a vulgar limitation to the veracity of the Unlimited. With naming, a person becomes a property. Without naming, everything is eternal existence. With no naming, even a stone is Soul.
pīwat rāmras lagī kumārī
Drinking the juice of comprehension, there is awareness in samadhi and samadhi is worldliness
