The Wisdom of Robert Adams #16

Reading is only for motivation. Be careful what you read. There are too many books. If you speak to those people who have really become enlightened, you will find that they hardly ever read at all. May be a couple of books but what they did, was the sadhana, the spiritual practices required. They worked on themselves consistently, constantly, 24 hours a day.

The Sage does not care where he or she is.
It’s all the same.
A true Sage does not have to travel everywhere,
trying to pick up devotees, or disciples.
Couldn’t care less if anybody heard of him or her.
Never looking for name or fame.
Not really interested in publishing books,
putting out tapes, making him or herself
well known all over the world, so people can come.
A true Sage just doesn’t care about these things,
because there’s no self left to care about these things.
The ego has been totally transcended.
There is no ego that needs to do anything.
That is why people like Ramana Maharshi
never left Tiruvannamalai, Arunachala.
There is nowhere to go. It’s all the same.

The Wisdom of Robert Adams #13

After the death of this body, as in life, the Jnani remains where and what he eternally is, the first principle of all beings and things: formless nameless, unsoiled, timeless, dimensionless and utterly free. Death cannot touch him, cravings cannot torture him, sins do not stain him; he is free from all desire and suffering.

He sees the infinite Self in all, and all in the infinite Self, which is his being.
The Jnani confesses his experience thus:
I am infinite, imperishable, Self-luminous, Self-existent, I am without beginning or end, I am birthless, deathless, without change or decay. I permeate and interpenetrate all things.

In the myriad universes of thought and creation, I Alone Am.

The wisdom of Robert Adams #12

The nothing I’m referring to is, you don’t lose your individuality, your individuality expands and you become as omnipresence.

Now you may ask the question, “How can everybody’s individuality expand the same way? Then there’ll be trillions of individualities?” No! There’s only one individuality and that one is the Self. And that one is you. You are the ultimate Reality.

But right now with your finite mind, it’s difficult to comprehend that. This is why you have to understand that you are not your body-mind phenomena. As soon as you get rid of the body-mind concept, you become free.

Therefore you work on yourself. The spiritual sadhana that you do, is simply to awaken. To awaken to your Self, to the one Reality. In the one Reality, you can have a body or not have a body, it makes no difference. But even if you have a body, you really don’t have a body. The body only appears to the Ajnani, the person who has not realized Truth. It appears as if the Jnani has a body. It appears as if the Jnani is doing something. But the Jnani does nothing. The Jnani is immersed in consciousness and has become the Self, the total Reality, pure intelligence, absolute awareness, sat-chit-ananda.

Ponder this very well. Your sadhana, your spiritual practice does not begin when you’ve gone to many teachers, and you’ve read many books. It actually begins when you give up everything. That’s when real sadhana begins, when you have surrendered everything, when you’ve emptied yourself of all knowledge, all desires for liberation. When you have become an empty shell, then your spiritual life begins. Until that time you’re only playing games with yourself.

All is well. All is well. Drop all the pretending. Drop all your hurts. Drop the self pity. Drop everything, let go. Awaken, be free. Freedom is your real nature. You have always been that, yet you are allowing the thoughts to cover up that freedom so-it-appears. You are allowing your thoughts to tell you something else. And you’re caught up in the dreamworld believing it’s the real world.

You’ve been hypnotized, mesmerized, to the grand illusion, the maya. Awaken to yourself. Awaken to the truth that you are free and you are nothing but freedom. Total absolute freedom from every conceivable thing you can imagine. Like boundless space you are totally free. Free of all so-called karmas, samskaras, samsaras, past mistakes, everything. You no longer have to suffer. You no longer have to be afraid of anything.

The Wisdom of Robert Adams #8

Do not concern yourself whether you’re going to do anything wrong or right. You are just one of the many actors on the stage of life. Everybody has come here to play a role, so-to-speak. Some people have to be the good guys, some people have to be the bad guys. This is the reason we never judge anybody. This is the reason you should never call anybody evil or bad. It is really a role that they’re playing. And a person on the path of Jnana does not judge anybody or anything. They leave everything alone. They observe it, they watch it. Come to no conclusions. Good and bad is out of their vocabulary. Right and wrong has been transcended. This happens before you become fully enlightened.
There is absolutely nothing wrong in this whole universe least of all yourself. You no longer worry about yourself. For even though you still feel you are a piece of the body you understand that there is a grand bliss, a joy, an absolute reality that you can call God that takes care of you completely and totally when you surrender completely and totally to the source.
So you see you do not have to look after your life. You do not have to watch what you eat or watch where you go or watch what you do. For whatever you eat, wherever you go, whatever you do is the right thing for you at the moment. It is where you’re supposed to be. You are where you’re supposed to reap. Everything is in its right place. If you learn to have faith like this you will grow. But if you keep believing I am the doer and I have to make things happen, otherwise nothing will happen and I will fall apart, then you will be making things happen all of your life. There will always be something to make happen. It will never end. Yet this is also your role that you have to play here on this earth. This is the destiny that’s yours. To do what you’re doing right now.
So, the person who understands what I’m saying does not consider the question any more, “Is the world real or false?” Remember if you have to ask that question, then the world is real and you have to act accordingly.
In the same instance that person does not ask the question, “Is everything preordained?” For remember for whom are things preordained? Only for the ajnani, for the ignorant one.
The only freedom you’ve got is to turn within and not react to anything. This is your freedom, your total and complete freedom. And that is really a lot of freedom if you think about it. You can really see that you’re free, to that extent.
In other words whatever befalls you, you do not become upset, hurtable, angry, you merely observe it and watch it and you realize that is your stuff that you’ve got to get rid of. That is your stuff you have to go through. It makes no difference how deeply you’re suffering, if you’re suffering or how happy you are, if you’re happy. If you’re sick or healthy or you’re poor or rich. If you are married or single. If you are living in a hut or a mansion.
These things are irrelevant. For what is relevant is your reaction to these things.
The person who does not react grows spiritually and becomes Master of the world, so-to-speak.

The Wisdom of Robert Adams #6

Life is very short in this body and all of the things
you’re going through will soon come to an end.
If you have not made any spiritual headway
you will be under the delusion of karma.
And you will return again and again in a delusory body form
going through many experiences that appear real to you.

The only way for it to come to an end is to give it all up now.
Make up your mind that this is going to become the year for you
to totally become realized. To awaken totally.
And by following the three precepts as outlined,
this will happen to you faster than you can breath,
if you allow it to.

Do not allow the world to run your life.
Do not let the world fool you.
All this is an illusion.
Be yourself. Know yourself.
Realize that you are Brahman, the pure awareness.
Your nature is pure consciousness
and one day you will have to awaken.
So why not begin now. Why wait?
