"The greatest act a human being can learn is the act of 'seeing' what is going on inside"
- Sri Bhagavan
"Perfection is in going along with what is there"
SRI BHAGAVAN: "When it comes to inner problems or inner growth or spiritual progress, you have to learn the art of seeing. Supposing jealousy is there, you must learn to see jealousy. We are not concerned about jealousy as such. What is there is not important for us, but you must 'see' what is there. 'To see is to be free'. It is not to be understood as freedom from jealousy; the mere act of seeing is freedom. This freedom is meditation. It is joy. It is peace. It is love.
You are worried about the content (that is fear, jealousy, hatred that is inside the mind). There is no need to worry about the content. Worrying about content is the problem. You say -'oh my God my mind is so terrible, this is happening, that is happening.' That is the problem. There is no problem with your thoughts at all. It is your WORRY about those thoughts. (Your worry is your problem)
They (the thoughts) are there. That is all. You can't do anything about them. The question is, are you aware? And for that you must stop blaming. I could talk more about it, but then that will become a concept and you could get into a trap, so all I will tell you is, the content is not important. There is nowhere to go. Are you aware of the content? That is all, that is AWARENESS.
You are either authentic or inauthentic.That is your business.What we are saying is create a third being who is a witness to the whole thing,who makes no comments,who does not say you must be authentic or inauthentic.He is just witnessing the whole thing like witnessing a movie.
Such joy in just seeing what is going on inside.That's all there is to life.What is life? See what is going on inside.Because you are not seeing it you feel bored.You find life is meaningless,purposeless.Therfore you want this,you want that.So many desires you are creating.But if you were to actually see what is going on,there is such joy you will not want anything else in life.
You should not try to get anywhere, the mistake you are making again and again- you are thinking there is somewhere to get to. There is nowhere - where can you go? You can only be where you are. That is why I say the first step is the last step. There is no second step.
Today's society is in chaos because everybody is trying to be something other than what they are.
SEEING does not lead to anything. SEEING is to be Awakened. You should not think you will SEE and therefore something will happen. SEEING is the awakened state.
SRI AMMA: "Unless we learn the art of "seeing" with internal integrity, we will not be able to "see" the truth, and discover love. If we can love, only then we can forgive and seek forgiveness. One should develop extreme patience to maintain love and peace in the relationship."
"Seeing is only in the present. It is neither in the past nor in the future".
