Pain is the background of all your pleasures. You want them because you suffer. On the other hand, the very search for pleasure is the cause of pain. It is a vicious circle.

The world exists so long as this sense of presence is there. The sense of presence is in consciousness - not my consciousness or your consciousness but universal consciousness.

Once this consciousness is conscious of itself it takes on certain items as its own, because of conditioning, and others as not its own, and it will fight for and try to protect those which it considers its own.

This consciousness is nothing but energy. When the body essence grows weaker, the consciousness grows weaker, and ultimately will leave; nothing is dead.

This universal consciousness is known as God, which is the Almighty, the Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent, all the attributes. These attributes are given to God in consciousness, not to the Absolute. The Absolute is without attributes.

Yes, but the primary ignorance is about our "I Amness." We have taken it as the Ultimate, that is ignorance. We presume that this consciousness is the eternal, the Ultimate, that is the mistake.

You are the Self, here and now. Leave the mind alone, stand aware and unconcerned and you will realize that to stand alert but detached, watching events come and go, is an aspect of your real nature.

True happiness cannot be found in things that change and pass away. Pleasure and pain alternate inexorably. Happiness comes from the self and can be found in the self only.

as uncaused, independent, unrelated, undivided, uncomposed, unshakable, unquestionable, unreachable by effort. Every positive definition is from memory and, therefore, inapplicable. And yet my state is supremely actual and, therefore, possible, realizable, attainable.
