….Realize that you are not the master of what happens, you cannot control the future except in purely technical matters. Human relationship cannot be planned, it is too rich and varied. Just be understanding and compassionate, free of all self-seeking.

Nisargadatta Maharaj, from the classic ‘I am That‘, p 355

My grace is telling you now: look within. All you need you have. Use it. Behave as best you know, do what you think you should. Don’t be afraid of mistakes; you can always correct them, only intentions matter. The shape things take is not within your power; the motives of your actions are.

Nisargadatta Maharaj, from the classic ‘I am That‘, p 419

You can see both the image and the mirror. You are neither. Who are you ? Don’t go by formulas. The answer is not in words. The nearest you can say in words is: I am what makes perception possible, the life beyond the experiencer and his experience.
Now can you separate yourself both from the mirror and the image in the mirror and stand completely alone, all by yourself ?

When life and death are seen as essential to each other, as two aspects of one being, that is immortality. To see the end in the beginning and beginning in the end is the intimation of eternity. Definitely immortality is not continuity. Only the process of change continues. Nothing lasts.
