Everything is Connected ~ Life is Universal

Quotes of Sri Nisargadatta (N)
“We are the creators and creatures of each other,
causing and bearing each other’s burden” I find that somehow, by
shifting the focus of attention, I become the very thing I look at, and
experience the kind of consciousness it has; I become the inner
witness of the thing. I call this capacity of entering other focal
points of consciousness, love; You may give it any name you like.
Love says “I am everything”. Wisdom says “I am nothing”.
Between the two, my life flows. Since at any point of time and space
I can be both the subject and the object of experience, I express it
by saying that I am both and neither and beyond both (269)
Unless you make tremendous efforts, you will not be convinced that
effort will take you nowhere. The self is so self-confident that unless
it is totally discouraged it will not give up. Mere verbal conviction
is not enough. Hard facts alone can show the absolute nothingness
of the self ~ image. (523)
A quiet mind is all you need. All else will happen rightly, once your
mind is quiet. As the sun on rising makes the world active so does
self-awareness affect changes in the mind. In the light of calm and
steady self-awareness, inner energies wake up and work miracles
without any effort on your part (311)
The world is like a sheet of paper on which something is typed. The
reading and the meaning will vary with the reader, but the paper is

the common factor, always present, rarely perceived. When the
ribbon is removed, typing leaves no trace on the paper. So is my
mind ~ the impressions keep on coming but
no trace is left (225)
When you demand nothing of the world, nor of God, when you want
nothing, seek nothing, expect nothing then the supreme state will
come to you uninvited and unexpected (195)
“There is no such thing as a person. There are only restrictions
and limitations. The sum total of these defines the person. (…) The
person merely appears to be, like the space within the pot appears
to have the shape and volume and smell of the pot. “By all means
attend to your duties. Action, in which you are not emotionally
involved and which is beneficial and does not cause suffering will
not bind you. You may be engaged in several directions and work
with enormous zest, yet remain inwardly free and quiet, with a
mirror like mind, which reflects all, without being affected (50)
“To expound and propagate concepts is simple, to drop all
concepts is difficult and rare” “There is nothing to practice.
To know yourself, be yourself. To be yourself, stop imagining
yourself to be this or that. Just be. Let your true nature emerge.
Don’t disturb your mind with seeking” I am that
In people with devotion, even with limited intellect the intellect is
not making mischief, as it is here. This is the place where the
intellect gets annihilated. Consciousness and the Absolute.
There was a house, and in the house there was a person; now the
person is gone and the house is demolished. The sum total is
whatever experiences you have, whether for a day or for years it’s
all illusion. The experiences begin with knowingness What is the
most ingrained habit you have? It is to say “I Am” This is the root
habit. Words and experiences are unworthy of you. This habit of
experiencing will not go until you realize that all this domain of the
five elements, are unreal This “I Amness” is itself unreal.
“The un-manifest manifested itself,
that manifest state is Guru and it is universal.
Who is the one who recognizes this body-mind?
This ‘I Am-ness’ which recognizes the body ~ mind
is without name & form,
it is already there” ~
