There is a light that shines beyond all things on earth, beyond the highest, the very highest heavens. This is the light that shines in your heart. One who meditates, all his knots of his heart, the bondages are opened; all the doubts are eliminated and one becomes gradually free from the fetters of action with ego.
Through purity of food comes purity of mind, through purity of mind comes a steady memory of Truth, and when one gets this memory one becomes free from all knots of the heart. Previous to creation all this was being, one only without a second, Name and form were not. Vasana perishes through well conducted deliberation and truth. Through the absorption of Vasanas mind attains quiescence like a lamp without oil. Happiness is a state of being of the nature of bliss, having cognized through experience the Reality of Sachchidananda — that which is be-ness, consciousness and bliss.

But it is the very nature of the effulgent Being. What desire is possible for Him who is the fulfillment of all desires? We live in accordance with our deep, driving desire. It is this desire at the time of death that determines what our next life is to be. We will come back to earth to work out the satisfaction of that desire. But not for those who are free from desire; they are free because all their desires have found fulfillment in the Self. They do not die like the others; but realizing Brahman, they merge in Brahman. So it is said: When all the desires that surge in the heart are renounced, the mortal becomes immortal.
When all the knots that strangle the heart are loosened, the mortal becomes immortal, here in this very life. Still your mind in me, still yourself in me, and without a doubt you shall be united with me, Lord of Love, dwelling in your heart. Well may he be content to live a hundred years who acts without attachment who works his work with earnestness, but without desire, not yearning for its fruits — he, and he alone. He who knows both the transcendent and the immanent, with the immanent overcomes death and with the transcendent reaches immortality.
That which cannot be apprehended by the mind, but by which, they say, the mind is apprehended—That alone know as Brahman and not that which people here worship. What is here is also there; what is there is also here. Who sees multiplicity but not the one indivisible Self must wander on and on from death to death. Upanishads or The Upanishads. Body , sun , destruction , body. Peace , peace , one. Mind , Wise , mind , wise. For him who sees everywhere oneness, how can there be delusion or grief? Light , light. From joy all beings have come, by joy they all live, and unto joy they all return.
I n the beginning, there was only the Self. He reflected, and saw that there was nothing but Himself, whereupon he exclaimed, "I am" Aham.
Ever since, He has been known within as "I. He was afraid. Even today, one who is alone is afraid.
But then he realized, '"Since there is nothing else but myself, what is there to fear? However, he was still unhappy. Even today, one is unhappy when alone. He desired a mate. And so he took of the form of a being the size of a man and woman joined in a close embrace; and then He separated into two individuals: a man and a wife.
Therefore, as the sage Yajnavalkya has declared, this body, by itself, is like half of a split pea.
The male [half] then embraced the female [half], and from that the human race arose. But the female wondered: "How can he unite with me, whom he has produced from himself'?
Well then, let me hide! She became a mare; he became a stallion. She an ass, he a donkey and united with her; and from that solid-hoofed animals arose. She became a goat, he a buck; she a sheep, he a ram and united with her; and from that goats and sheep arose. In this way, he poured forth all pairing creatures, down to the ants. Then he realized: "All this creation is actually myself; for I have poured forth all this. A s the rivers flowing east and west Merge in the sea and become one with it, Forgetting they were ever separate rivers, So do all creatures lose their separateness When they merge at last into pure Being.
T he separate self dissolves in the sea of pure consciousness, infinite and immortal. Separateness arises from identifying the Self with the body, which is made up of the elements; when this physical identification dissolves, there can be no more separte self. This is what I want to tell you, beloved.

W hat the sages sought they have found at last. No more questions have they to ask of life.

With self-will extinguished, they are at peace. Seeing the Lord of Love in all around, Serving the Lord of Love in all around, they are united with him forever. T he truth of the Self cannot come through one who has not realized that he is the Self. The intellect cannot reveal the Self, beyond its duality of subject and object. They who see themselves in all and all in them help others through spiritual osmosis to realize the Self themselves. This awakening you have known comes not through logic and scholarship, but from close association with a realized teacher.
B rahman is the first cause and last refuge. Brahman, the hidden Self in everyone, Does not shine forth. He is revealed only To those who keep their mind one-pointed On the Lord of Love and thus develop A superconscious manner of knowing. Meditation enables them to go Deeper and deeper into consciousness, From the world of words to the world of thoughts, Then beyond thoughts to wisdom in the Self.
Reading the Upanishads: Kena Chapter Two | Ambaa Choate
B rahman is beyond all duality, beyond the reach of thinker and thought. C ovet nothing. All belongs to the Lord. Thus working you may live a hundred years. Thus alone will you work in real freedom. I n the secret cave of the heart, two are seated by life's fountain. The separate ego drinks of the sweet and bitter stuff, Liking the sweet, disliking the bitter, While the supreme Self drinks sweet and bitter Neither liking this nor disliking that.
The ego gropes in darkness, while the Self lives in light. A person is what his deep desire is. It is our deepest desire in this life that shapes the life to come. So let us direct our deepest desires to realize the Self.
W hen all desires that surge in the heart are renounced, the mortal becomes immortal. T hose who dwell on and long for sense-pleasure are born in a world of separateness.
