….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

Why do you worry about the world before taking care of yourself ? You want to save the world, don’t you ? Can you save the world before saving yourself ? And what means being saved ? Saved from what ? From illusion. Salvation is to see things as they are. I really do not see myself related to anybody and anything. Not even to a self, whatever that self may be. I remain forever – undefined. I am within and beyond – intimate and unapproachable.

Nisargadatta Maharaj, from the classic ‘I am That‘, p 83

You alone can undo the evil you have created. Your own callous selfishness is at the root of it. Put first your own house in order and you will see that your work is done.

You begin by letting thoughts flow and watching them. The very observation slows down the mind till it stops altogether. Once the mind is quiet, keep it quiet. Don’t get bored with peace, be in it, go deeper into it.
