THOUGHTS:

Self Realization - Know Thyself, End Grief  -  By Swami Chinmayananda!

Repulsion, hatred, dislike and fear can come not against oneself, but against another. The other' is always necessary. But when we have realized and are experiencing the oneness of the Self, and when we are well-established in that experience, where can there be 'the other' except the Self'?

      Grief is the expression of delusion. The amount of grief in an individual's life is directly proportional to the amount of delusion in him. In delusion, when he cognises plurality and discord, the individual experiences grief. To get away from grief is the goal of life that is sought by every living creature, whether man or animal.

     Beyond the shores of sighs and sobs lies the land of realization, where the knower experiences in his own Self the entire universe to be one, which is nothing but his own real nature.

     The pot space can discard all its sense of limitations, imperfections and sorrows only when it rediscovers itself to be nothing bu the universal space.

     Each individual wave will have its own sorrows of birth, growth, decay and death only when it considers itself separate from others. But on its realization that is nothing but the ocean in its essential nature, all its sorrows end, and no more shall it have its own delusory idea that it is separate from others.

     The one who has thus realized the core of all beings as his own Self and as the Self in every name and form, he is a sage, a prophet and a true leader of mankind. To him are the greatest joys and the amplest successes in life.
 
How much you have studied is not the question; how much  you have moved towards it, is what matters.

With Prem and OM
