I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.
If a man considers that he is born, he cannot avoid the fear of death. Let him find out if he has been born or if the Self has any birth. ...Find from where thoughts emerge. Then you will be able to abide in the ever-present inmost Self and be free from the idea of birth or the fear of death.
In thinking, “This is I” and “That is mine”, he binds himself with his self, as does a bird with a snare.
All the lights of the world cannot be compared even to a ray of inner light of the Self.
If you wish to be free, know you are the Self, the witness of all these, the heart of awareness. Set your body aside; sit in your own awareness. You will be at once happy, forever still, forever free.
Selfless service alone gives the needed strength and courage to awaken the real you sleeping in your heart.
To understand oneself profoundly, one needs balance. Neither renunciation nor acquiescence.
The Self, having in dreams enjoyed the pleasures of sense, gone hither and thither, experienced good and evil, hastens back to the state of waking from which he started. As a man passes from dream to wakefulness, so does he pass from this life to the next.
One’s inner light alone is the means, naught else. When this inner light is kept alive, it is not affected by the darkness of inertia.
