Fear not! All mortal things are as shadows. Unreality dominates all appearance. All visible objects are ever-changing. The changeful is called perishable. In reality, nothing is destroyed in essence, the water is not destroyed. Similarly, visible objects seem to be undergoing change, but Thou art the reality within which no change abides. Know thou art the immovable one!
Thy form is a dream. Know this, and be thou content! Thy soul is stationed in the formlessness of divinity.
Let the mind follow the blinking light; desire rules, limitations exist. Thou art not the mind; desire touches thee not. Limitless art thou alone.
Thou art contained within omniscience and omnipotence. Remember life is but a play. Play thy part. Thou must. Such is the law. Yet, withal, thou art neither player, play nor law. Life itself cannot limit thee. Life is of the stuff of dreams. Thou dreamiest not. Thou art the dreamless one, beyond the touch and taint of unreality. Know this! Know this and be free-free-free!!!
Life, as it is, is short; desire is rampant. Give at least some short time unto the Lord. He asketh little, only this, that thou shalt know thyself; for, verily, knowing thyself, thou comest to know him.
For God and the Soul are one. Some say, ‘Remember, O Man, that thou art dust!’ True, of the body but the higher, the mightier, the truer, the holier revelation reads, ‘Remember, O Man, that thou art the Soul!’ ‘Indestructible and imperishable art thou alone, O Soul!’ So speaketh the Lord. All else wanes. However mighty the form, it perishes. Death and destruction are the lot of all form. Thought is subordinate to change. Personality is of the weaving of these- thought and form.
Therefore, stand aside, O Soul. Remember thou art the Self beyond both thought and form. All virtue resides in this consciousness, ‘Thou art One with God.’ In this alone art thou immortal; in this alone art thou pure and holy.
Try not to become the master. Thou art the master. There is no becoming for thee. Thou art, O Soul! However sublime may seem the process of becoming, the hour shall come when thou shalt know, ’Progress is in time’ but ‘Perfection is within eternity.’ (i.e. when you will attain realization of perfection) And thou art not of time. Thou art of eternity. Is there Divinity! Then, “Tat Tvam Asi”! –meaning, “Thou art That! All-pervading!” Understand that which is the highest within thee. Worship the highest! And the most perfect form of worship is the knowledge that thou and the highest? That, O Soul, thou callest God. Throw all dreams into oblivion! Having heard of the self within thee, the self thou art, understand! Having understood, perceive! Having perceived, know! Having known, realize! Having realized, then- ‘Tat Tvam Asi’ – which is, ‘Thou art That! All-pervading!’
Retreat from the world! It is the embodiment of dreams. It, together with the body, -verily, these are the nests of dreams. Shalt thou be a dreamer! Shalt thou be bound forever in the bondage of dreams! ‘Arise awake and stop not till the goal is reached!’ ~ Swami Vivekananda.
Do not get entangled in desires for sense pleasures and passions. While awakening into the nectarine experience of ‘I am That… I am…’ keep deepening peace and spiritual intoxication. Base thoughts and desires have made your life lowly and downtrodden. Attain your spiritual glory by entertaining sublime thoughts and understanding of your true nature – ‘I am That!’
