Man is not at peace with himself till he has become like unto God. The endeavor to reach this state is supreme, the only ambition worth having. AND THIS IS THE SELF REALIZATION.
How can the body be made temple of God? In other words how can one be free from action i.e. from the taint of sin?
By desire less action, by renouncing the fruits of actions, by dedicating all activities to God i.e. surrendering one self to him body and soul.
He is the devotee who is jealous of none, who is a fount of mercy, who is without egotism, who is selfless, who is ever forgiving, who is always contented, whose resolutions are firm, who has dedicated mind and soul to God, who causes no dread, who is not afraid of others, who is free from exultation, sorrow and fear, who is pure, who is versed in action, and yet remains unaffected by it, who renounces all fruit, good or bad, who treat as friends and foe alike, who is untouched by respect or disrespect, who is not putted by the praise, who does not go under when people speak ill of him, who loves silence and solitude, who has a disciplined reason.
One can attain self-realization only if one sheds his attachment to the Ego. We can follow truth only in the measure that we shed our attachment to the Ego.
How to achieve Self Realization?
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.
Life is made up of our memories and moments that have shaped us in to who we are.
There is crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in. You must be the change; you wish to see in the world. The future is with fate, the present is our own.
Watch your thoughts, because they become words. Watch your words, because they become actions.
Watch your actions, because they become habits.
Watch your habits, because they become your character. Watch your character, because it becomes your destiny.
What we think or what we know or what we believe is in the end of little con- sequence. The only consequence is what we do.
Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul, and sings the tune – without the words. And never stops at all.
Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do… but how much love and how much we put in that action.
We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty.
