Summer Recess

When we come to non-attachment, then we can understand the marvelous mystery of the universe; how it is intense activity and vibration, and at the same time intensest peace and calm; how it is work every moment and rest every moment. That is the mystery of the universe—the impersonal and personal in one, the infinite and finite in one.

                                 *    *    *    *    *

Let people say whatever they like, stick to your own convictions, and rest assured, the world will be at your feet. They say, “Have faith in this fellow or that fellow,” but I say, “Have faith in yourself first,” that’s the way. Have faith in yourself—all power is in you—be conscious and bring it out. Say, “I can do everything.”

                                *    *    *    *    *

The child is ushered into the world not as something flashing from the hands of nature, as poets delight so much to depict, but he has the burden of an infinite past, for good or evil he comes to work out his own past deeds. That makes the differentiation. This is the law of karma. Each one of us is the maker of his own fate.

                             *    *    *    *    *

Knowledge of the absolute depends upon no book, nor upon anything; it is absolute in itself. No amount of study will give this knowledge; it is not theory, it is realization. Cleanse the dust from the mirror, purify your own mind, and in a flash you know that you are Brahman.
