Freedom

Posted: July 15, 2021 in Daillies

Even hells stand out with this miraculous fact that we are born rebels. And the first fact of life — the inrushing of life itself — against this we rebel and cry out, “No law for us.” As long as we obey the laws we are like machines, and the universe goes on and we cannot break it. Laws, as laws, become man’s nature. The first inkling of life on its higher level is in seeing this struggle within us to break the bonds of nature and to be free. Freedom, oh, freedom! Freedom, oh, freedom! is the song of the soul.

Shall we advise men to kneel down and cry, “O miserable sinners that we are!” No. Rather let us remind them of their divine nature.

The Goal of Life

Posted: January 4, 2021 in Daillies

To realize pure Awareness,

the life center,

is the goal of life,

the culmination of evolution,

the fulfillment of the superhuman.

Lyrics

You told me I would never see you walk away
Said you’d never break my heart
Never leave me in the dark
I guess there’s just some promises you shouldn’t make
Should’ve known from the startNow I’m in the dark
Show a little loving
Shine a little light on me
Show a little loving
Shine a little light on me
Show a little loving
Shine a little light on me
Show a little lovingI’m in the dark
I can’t see
Can’t see it
Can’t see it
Feeling my way back to you
I can’t feel
Can’t feel it
Can’t feel itReach out and show a little loving
Shine a little light on me
Show a little loving
Shine a little light on meI’m in the dark
Show a little loving
Shine a little on me
Show a little loving
Show a little lovingYou told me I would never see you go astray
Said we’d never be apart
Never leave me in the dark
I guess there’s just some promises you shouldn’t make
Should’ve known from the startI’m in the dark
I can’t see
Can’t see it
Can’t see it
Just feeling my way back to you
I can’t feel
Can’t feel it
Can’t feel itReach out and show a little loving
Shine a little light on me
Show a little loving
Shine a little light on meI’m in the dark
Show a little lovin’
Shine a little light on me
Show a little lovingI can’t see
Can’t see it
Can’t see it
Just feeling my way back to you
I can’t feel
Can’t feel it
Can’t feel itReach out and show a little loving
Shine a little light on me
Show a little loving
Shine a little light on meI’m in the dark
Show a little loving
Shine a little light on me
Show a little loving
Show a little loving

“The Inner Ruler”

All this is full. All that is full.
From fullness, fullness comes.
When fullness is taken from fullness,
Fullness still remains.

O M shanti shanti shanti

1. The Lord is enshrined in the hearts of all.
The Lord is the supreme Reality.
Rejoice in him through renunciation.
Covet nothing. All belongs to the Lord.
2. Thus working may you live a hundred years.
Thus alone will you work.

3. Those who deny the Self are born again
Blind to the Self, enveloped in darkness,
Utterly devoid of love for the Lord.

4. The Self is one. Ever still, the Self is
Swifter than thought, swifter than the senses.
Though motionless, he outruns all pursuit.
Without the Self, never could life exist.

5. The Self seems to move, but is ever still.
He seems far away, but is ever near.
He is within all, and he transcends all.

6. Those who see all creatures in themselves
And themselves in all creatures know no fear.
7. Those who see all creatures in themselves
And themselves in all creatures know no grief.
How can the multiplicity of life
Delude the one who sees its unity?

8. The Self is everywhere. Bright is the Self,
Indivisible, untouched by sin, wise,
Immanent and transcendent. He it is
Who holds the cosmos together.

9-11. In dark night live those for whom
The world without alone is real; in night
Darker still, for whom the world within
Alone is real. The first leads to a life
Of action, the second to a life of meditation.
But those who combine action with meditation
Cross the sea of death through action
And enter into immortality
Through the practice of meditation.
So have we heard from the wise.

12-14. In dark night live those for whom the Lord
Is transcendent only; in darker still,
For whom he is immanent only.
But those for whom he is transcendent
And immanent cross the sea of death
With the immanent and enter into
Immortality with the transcendent.
So have we heard from the wise.

15. The face of truth is hidden by your orb
Of gold, O sun. May you remove your orb
So that I, who adore the true, may see
16. The glory of truth. O nourishing sun,
Solitary traveler, controller,
Source of life for all creatures, spread your light
And subdue your dazzling splendor
So that I may see your blessed Self.
Even that very Self am I!

17. May my life merge in the Immortal
When my body is reduced to ashes.
O mind, meditate on the eternal Brahman.
Remember the deeds of the past.
Remember, O mind, remember.

18. O god of fire, lead us by the good path
To eternal joy. You know all our deeds.
Deliver us from evil, we who bow
And pray again and again.

O M shanti shanti shanti
