Ancient Scriptures and their Relevance to Contemporary Life


We have beliefs, we have hypothesis, we have dogmas and we are full of speculations. Having read this or that book about what truth or God is, our mind is restless astonishingly!

A mind that is full of knowledge is restless! It is not quiet, it is only burdened and mere heaviness does not indicate a still mind.

When the mind is full of belief, either believing that there is God or that there is no God, it is burdened and a burdened mind can never find out what truth IS.

To find out what is true, the mind must be free. Free of rituals, of beliefs, of dogmas, knowledge and experience. It is only then that the mind can realize that which is true, because such a mind is quiet.

It no longer has the movement of going out or the movement of coming in. For that mind is still; and in stillness, there is an abundance of energy.

If there is any form of outward movement, then there is a reaction inward. But, all that has come down, the mind is still and that mind does not dissipate energy. That mind has an abundance of energy. It’s energy that comes with complete stillness of the mind.
