55. Give up All and You Gain All

Everyone imagines 'others' and seeks a link with them. The seeker is the link, there is none other.

Your desire to know other people's minds is due to your not knowing your own mind.

There is trouble only when you cling to something. When you hold on to nothing, no trouble arises.

Let the dream unroll itself to its very end. You cannot help it. But you can look at the dream as a dream, refuse it the stamp of reality.

In dream you love some and not others. On waking up you find you are love itself, embracing all.

Freedom from all desire is eternity.

Self-knowledge is detachment.

To know yourself, be yourself. To be yourself, stop imagining yourself to be this or that. Just be.

Where action is needed, action happens. Man is not the actor. His is to be aware of what is going on. His very presence is action.

Within the immensity of space floats a tiny atom of consciousness and in it the entire universe is contained.
