Nonduality Highlights: Issue #3689, Sunday, October 18, 2009, Editor: Mark

The state of craving for anything blocks all deeper experience. Nothing of value can happen to a mind, which knows exactly what it wants. For nothing the mind can visualize and want is of much value.

The chronic thoughts - the thoughts that you hold in your awareness - have a tendancy to become your experience. What you think about you bring about. What you think about becomes your belief. What you believe becomes your perception and your perception basically determines your experience. You can shape your own destiny by the attitude that you take.

The real message is that when you begin to change internally, your life begins to reflect that change. The secret is not about materialism or consumerism - that is the beginning belief - it's about growing spiritually and also knowing that there are laws of the universe and that if you practice them, they will respond to you.

A powerful interest which dominates a man's life polarizes his mind, which then acts like a magnet and continually draws out from his stored-up experience and also from new experiences whatever is relevant and useful to the end in view. Deep interest invigorates the mind, awakens its dormant powers and is the key to super excellence, invention and discovery.

- Swami Krishnananda, from Facets of Spirituality, compiled by S. Bhagyalakshmi

Be conscious of yourself, watch your mind, give it your full attention. Don't look for quick results, there may be none within your noticing. Unknown to you, your psyche will undergo a change, there will be more clarity in your thinking and feeling, purity in your behaviour. You need not aim at these - you will witness the change all the same.

You live, you feel, you think. By giving attention to your living, feeling and thinking, you free yourself from them and go beyond them. Your personality dissolves and only the witness remains. Then you go beyond the witness. Do not ask how it happens. Just search within yourself.
