Bondage as a Lever to Find Freedom

Gururaj_blanco_negro_15Let us use bondage as a lever to find freedom. For the man who discovers freedom in bondage, and bondage in freedom—he is the realized soul.

If we keep on throwing more stones into the pond, then the ripples will be continuous. But if we cease throwing stones in the pond, then the momentum of the first stone thrown will dissipate itself, and the pond becomes clearer. That is the path, that is the way to freedom.

You are enlightened. All the meditational and spiritual practices are just to remove the clouds that obscure the sun of enlightenment.

Who wants enlightenment? Have that attitude. Just let me do what I have to do and enlightenment will come on its own.

When we have this feeling of liberation within ourselves, although we are involved in everything, we find the peace that passes all understanding. Understanding comes from the mind; peace comes from the heart, and the heart is so powerful that it overrides all the ripples of the mind and stills the pond. When the pond of the mind is stilled, the light within shines through in its fullest glory. And that is what life is all about.
