Giving One’s Self Up To God

“He who gives himself up to the Self that is God is the most excellent devotee. Giving one’s self up to God means remaining constantly in the Self without giving room for the rise of any thoughts other than that of the Self. Whatever burdens are thrown on God, He bears them. Since the supreme power of God makes all things move, why should we, without submitting ourselves to it, constantly worry ourselves with thoughts as to what should be done and how, and what should not be done and how not? We know that the train carries all loads, so after getting on it why should we carry our small luggage on our head to our discomfort, instead of putting it down in the train and feeling at ease?” – Sri Ramana Maharshi

Become Like Little Children

“In the spiritual life one becomes just like a little child – without resentment, without attachment, full of life and joy.”

Paramahansa Yogananda –

“Let the children come to me, do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”

Jesus Christ (from Mark 10:14-15) –

Jesus Christ said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.”

– Matthew 18:3-5

Meditation

“Solve all your problems through meditation. Exchange unprofitable religious speculations for actual God-contact. Clear your mind of dogmatic theological debris; let in the fresh, healing waters of direct perception. Attune yourself to the active inner Guidance; the Divine Voice has the answer to every dilemma of life. Though man’s ingenuity for getting himself into trouble appears to be endless, the Infinite Succor is no less resourceful.”

Lahiri Mahasaya

Love, Peace And Happiness…

“Human relationships could be truly joyous; they could create a great and complete happiness, if two human beings really understood and accepted each other, and learned to follow the spiritual path together. All the great religions repeat one message; that God is the principal of equality, love, peace and happiness, within and without, which is omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent. If that is true, then who are you and from where did you come? You live in that love and peace; you have come from that. So that love, peace and happiness are within you too.”

Swami Rama

Self-Realization

“Self-realization is the knowing – in body, mind and soul – that we are one with the omnipresence of God; that we do not have to pray that it come to us, that we are not merely near it all times, but that God’s omnipresence is our omnipresence; that we are just as much a part of Him now as we ever will be. All we have to do is improve our knowing.”
