51. Be Indifferent to Pain and Pleasure

The Self is near and the way to it is easy. All you need doing is doing nothing.

Your sadhana is to be. The doing happens. Just be watchful. Where is the difficulty in remembering that you are? You are all the time.

Your burden is of false self-identifications—abandon them all.

By remembering what I told you, you will achieve everything. I am telling you again: You are the all-pervading, all transcending reality.

Behave accordingly: think, feel and act in harmony with the whole.

It is natural and good to love oneself. Only you should know what exactly do you love. It is not the body that you love, it is Life...

Everybody is glad to be. But few know the fullness of it.

You come to know by dwelling in your mind on 'I am', 'I know', 'I love'—with the will of reaching the deepest meaning of these words.

Remember to remember: 'whatever happens—happens because I am'.

Stereotyped gestures and postures will not help you. Rely entirely on your clarity of thought, purity of motive and integrity of action.

No particular thought can be mind's natural state, only silence.

All will happen by itself. You need not do anything, only don't prevent it.
