Some Qualities of the Investigation

    • Do not ask superficial questions; apply yourself to fundamentals, to the very roots of your being.

    • This machine is a self-generating machine; when you go into that the momentum helps clear all doubts in your mind. This is exclusively your knowledge which you will enjoy most, then all traces of the mind are completely uprooted.

    • For you will obey and follow your own reality.

    • In deep silence the self contemplates the body. It is like the white paper on which nothing is written yet.

    • Be like the infant with nothing standing between the body and the self. The constant noise of psychic life is absent.

    • Be a fully awakened witness of the field of consciousness. There should be no feeling or ideas to stand between you and the field.

    • Realize that whatever you think yourself to be is just a stream of events, that while all happens, comes and goes, you alone are, the changeless among the changeful, the self-evident among the inferred.

    • Instead of trying to be this or that, be like that infant, be happy to be.

    • Just be conscious and happy. The pleasure to be is the simplest form of self-love, which later grows into love of the Self.

    • Investigate yourself and love the investigation and you will not only solve your own problems but also the problems of humanity.

    • As long as you allow yourself an abundance of moments of peace, you can safely practice the most honorable profession. These moments of inner quiet will burn out all obstacles without fail. Don’t doubt its efficacy. Try it.

    • Virtues and powers are tokens for children to play with. They are useful in the world, but do not take you out of it. To go beyond, you need alert immobility, quiet attention.
