Yes, I know that I live in natural joy. I let it become a partner in all that I do. Because I accept joy, I bring joy with me wherever I go. Nothing is too good, or too difficult, when joy is around.

Yes, I know that I am a true child of Infinite Good and that it is with-in my power to bring my good into life every day. I resolve never to forget who I am ever again, not for one minute. I am meant to love.

Yes, I know that I am unique in my Oneness with God. I know I have gifts to bring, and I do not hesitate to offer them. I am alive to my joy and compassion, and I give forth what is fully mine to share.

Yes, I know there is a great depth of Spirit within me awaiting discovery. In quiet ways I am drawn into the fullness of my own heart’s inquiry. What I long to know comes to me in the most magnificent ways.

Yes, I know that oneness with the Presence lies right at my fingertips, at the end of my nose, in the simplest thoughts. All day long I turn from activities and turn to thoughts of God for centering and peace.

Q: The adequate supply of means of livelihood is good for all.
You may be God himself, but you need a well-fed body to talk to us.
M: It is you that need my body to talk to you.
I am not my body, nor do I need it.
I am the witness only.
I have no shape of my own.
You are so accustomed to think of yourselves as bodies having consciousness that you just cannot imagine consciousness as having bodies.
Once you realise that bodily existence is but a state of mind, a movement in consciousness, that the ocean of consciousness is infinite and eternal, and that, when in touch with consciousness, you are the witness only, you will be able to withdraw beyond consciousness altogether

Q: The sense of being an experiencer, the sense of "I am" is it not also an experience?
M: Obviously, every thing experienced is an experience. And in every experience there arises the experiencer of it. Memory creates the illusion of continuity. In reality each experience has its own experiencer and the sense of identity is due to the common factor at the root of all experiencerexperience relations.
Identity and continuity are not the same.
Just as each flower has its own colour, but all colours are caused by the same light, so do many experiences appear in the undivided and indivisible awareness, each separate in memory, identical in essence.
This essence is the root, the foundation, the timeless and spaceless 'possibility' of all experience

BEFORE THE BEINGNESS WAS THERE,
LOOK AT THAT, BE IN THAT STATE...
You are not paying proper attention, you are talking only after this beingness appeared.
Before the beingness was there, look at that, be in that state. If you dare call me an atheist, remember that I do bhajans four
times a day.
That maya is so powerful that it gets you completely wrapped up in it.
Maya means "I Am," "I love to be." It has no identity except love.
That knowledge of "I Am" is the greatest foe and the greatest friend. Although it might be your greatest enemy, if you propitiate it properly, it will turn around and lead you to the highest state.

Q: What benefit is there in knowing that I am not the body?
M: Even to say that you are not the body is not quite true.
In a way you are all the bodies, hearts and minds and much more.
Go deep into the sense of ˜I am" and you will find.
How do you find a thing you have mislaid or forgotten?
You keep it in your mind until you recall it. The sense of being, of 'I am' is the first to emerge.
Ask yourself whence it comes, or just watch it quietly.
When the mind stays in the 'I am' without moving, you enter a state which cannot be verbalised but can be experienced.
All you need to do is try and try again.
After all the sense ˜I am" is always with you, only you have attached all kinds of things to it -- body, feelings, thoughts, ideas, possessions etc. All these self-identifications are misleading. Because of them you take yourself to be what you are not.

You may know all the right words, quote the scriptures, be brilliant in your discussions and yet remain a bag of bones.
Or you may be inconspicuous and humble, an insignificant person altogether, yet glowing with loving kindness and deep wisdom.
