The sense ‘I am’ is universal.
All beings know themselves as I.
Nobody had to teach you this.
I is your name.
I is consciousness.
I, consciousness, am.
It is also called the name of God—’I Am’.
It is a very high state.
The perfume of that state they call sat-chit-ananda,
which is the sense of existence,
the consciousness of the existence,
and the joy arising from the consciousness of the existence
—the bliss arising, the bliss of Being.
But there is one who perceives the bliss,
the witness and the things witnessed,
but is not confused by them.
All this is only its play.
Even the voice that says Be and things become,
arises from the Absolute.
It is One.
We seem to have lost the ability to judge or appreciate
true human greatness or Godliness.
Even in many religious places,
if you don’t dress smartly,
people don’t want to talk to you.
They have no time for you.
A new seeker could easily think that God
will only accept you if you are smartly dressed.
Like this, many people inside these organisations
end up missing the Lord who comes in many guises.
In fact, I remember a story of a certain
well known preacher who would ban people
from coming into his church.
One of these rejected people prayed to God about this.
God then answered that He Himself has been trying to get
into the same church for years but without any success.
We have forgotten what is important.
It has never served you.
Drop the feeling that life owes you anything
and see what happens.
Don’t only look outside;
look into your inner space and see
how this new attitude feels within you;
how light, empty and free you are
without self-esteem or any self-definition.
When you meet,
you don’t put living beings into any category.
Therefore, you can communicate with anybody
for you have found true communion
which comes only from the heart.
This is universal Love.
Your heart is an open and limitless space.
It has no bedroom, front yard, kitchen or storage room
—just a space full of love, Truth and the Holy Spirit of God.

We always are making decisions;
but in wise living, in intelligent existence
you must come to recognize you are in synchronicity.
The best use of the mind is not to try to work things out; better just keep the mind in a state of silence, neutrality, emptiness. You don’t have to work things out, just understand your true place and things will work themselves out.
The choice really is that you can experience your existence and even the heavenly realms from a personal perspective or impersonally. If you choose only the paradigm of a person, your view will always be limited, always be changeful.
There will come a time when very deep and very intense emotions, feelings and thoughts can come and you still see them as phenomena, you can see that they are just like clouds passing.
A spontaneous Satsang recorded 3rd of August, 2014 at Monte Sahaja in Portugal
Everything that you see,
every experience you have,
everything that you taste,
every sensation comes and goes…
recognize that which does not come and go…
and remain there!…
You are not here to survive but to bear witness to the glory of God.
All this universe did not manifest out of need, but out of joy.
… answers are cheap, I want you to keep the question. Look in yourself.
‘To be is not enough!’
… to do is at least an up and running.
But out of Beingness
… all activities of the Universe come …
Out of the Beingness itself
… all the activities of the Universe
is breathing in this To Be-ness …
If you understand this,
then all your activities become silence …
I wonder if you
understand how profound this is! …
Out of That! …
which is the sense, I AM To Be!
… that which IS! …
which is Being!
… activities are manifesting …
Out of This!
… this whole Universe
is arising …
It will take a little practice
because we are not accustomed to looking like this;
usually our looking is always going outwardly,
towards contacting objects
— even your ideas about life;
but to contemplate the subject,
something is terribly lazy to do this.
Focus without tension.
Perceive without projecting.
Witness without judging.
Enjoy without craving.
Reflect without imagining.
Love without condition.
Give without demanding.
Receive without possessing.
Serve without self-seeking.
Challenge without dominating.
Meditate without identity.
Correct without blaming.
Overcome without pride.
Laugh without cynicism.
Cry without Pity.
Confront without hatred.
Guide without superiority.
Be without self-defining.
Live without arrogance.
Enter without self-importance.
Depart without without regret.
Be one with God.
You are like the space in which things appear and are perceived in a wonderful joy, but not an excitement.
