Essence of Skillfulness
Whatever comes let it come,
what stays let stay, what goes let go,
always keep Quiet, and always adore Self.
this is the essence of living skillfully in the world appearance.
During all activities of life
always know that you are the Self.
The way to live a happy beautiful life
is to accept whatever comes
and not care about what does not come.
Things will come so enjoy them and be happy.
Let the play happen by the Supreme Power;
you will be taken care of.
Be free to be happy, love has no traps.
If you are happy all will be happy,
if you suffer. all will suffer,
if your mind smells bad others will be affected.
Keep yourself happy in Peace,
This is your responsibility.
Be happy and have compassion
and live hand in hand with nature.
This makes birth worthwhile.
Stan from Heart and see that all arise from Heart.
Always do this, Always be This.
You cannot be skillful and arrogant at the same time,
but without arrogance all will be skillful.
Face the One, seeing everything as one is no~mind
and this is the pure state of Being, of Self.
When you are one with all
do not hold or possess and It will Be.
When you are connected to all things
do not hold onto the connections
because this makes them separations
and you will have divided yourself by creating "other".
As the lotus does not touch the water,
so do not let the world enter you heart.
Being busy in the world is no trouble
unless you are troubled being busy.
Then the only trouble is the trouble.
Let attention go to manifestation,
just know that manifestation is Brahman.
et there be creations and destructions,
All is Brahman and you are beyond even that always.
Your environment is very important
so stay where there is no tension.
Make sure that the circumstances within and without
are not disturbing, so be with peaceful beings in peaceful places.
You need a place of love and beauty and peace,
even your own apartment and body must be peaceful.
Love and Quietness is enough.
If you speak ill of anybody else, you speak ill of yourself,
if you speak good, you speak good about yourself.
Words have great power so use only appropriate words.
Speaking from the head is pain and from the heart is pleasure,
so shut your head and your heart is open.
Don't trouble any being and do not let any being trouble you.
Don’t get angry with anyone,
the tongue doesn’t get angry with the teeth when the teeth bite it,
and this sometimes happens when the food is good.
Contentment is absolutely necessary
because whatever you will be in the next state,
or in the next life is whatever unfulﬁlled desire
that you have in the present state.
Therefore, desire only the Inﬁnite.
Let the other desires arise and see that they arise from from Emptiness,
and then let them fall, as waves must.
Don’t run after proiections on the screen, be very wise.
Do not lose your peace at any cost.
Things will rise and fall so not do be caught!
Peace is most important,
you have to be happy in the lila,
no-mind-limitless-happiness with Freedom in your mind,
not problems. Here in this moment,
there is no problem and daily life is within this moment,
you cannot walk out of it,
just try to invite past and future problems into this mom.
They cannot touch Here so do things of Now Now,
and do not touch yesterday or tomorrow.
Remove all becoming, you are Being.
Becoming is effort, Being is no effort.
You are always That so be like the breeze
that is attached to neither the garbage nor the garden
that it blows over.
Do not run away from worldly activities,
only always keep in the "I am Self", stay as the screen
on which all the proiected aetivities take place.
In all activities simply keep Quiet and know "I am home".
Your business is to keep Quiet!
You cannot say that it is a dream unless you are awake.
So in the true waking state, the state of Wisdom,
it does not matter if there are dream objects or not.
Emptiness is not affected by any dream object, not even duality.
Ocean does not complain about the dance of ten million waves!
So don’t be concerned about the rise and fall of thoughts.
To be nowhere is home, not allowing thought to land is home.
Allow thoughts to arise. but do not let them land
because thought landing is an object
which brings desire for the object,
which bring possessing of an object, which brings insanity.
There are only two choices: Freedom or insanity.
Choose "I am free and happy".
Bad moods are either past or imaginary future,
in the present there are no moods at all.
Moods belong to circumstance, to the past;
Face the Sun and there will be no shadow of moods.
Give up all concepts and remain what you are.
Identify yourself as Cosmic Consciousness;
don’t accept name or a form.
Detachment is your own nature,
so the wise are not attracted to the transient.
Only the foolish cling to that which brings unhappiness
and are thus butchered by time.
This world is a garden, a game, play this divine game very well.
See things only as they are but do not possess them
or you will be in trouble because even your body is transient.
The next breath is not guaranteed so do what you have to do Now;
play well, play wisely. by first ﬁnding out who you are.
Yoga only, no bhoga, ﬁrst ﬁnish your work,
then go to the world with a heart that is dancing.
Don't use words for this dance because the game is tricky.
Just be silent.
The world is like a tail of a dog, its nature is to curl.
The best you can do is to stay Quiet
and not let anything bother you.
Visitors will come and go, don’t interfere with these waves.
Be always empty and let desires dance.
Being asleep in the waiting state is
being asleep to desires and aversions.
Your True nature does not come and go.
Play with what comes and goes.
When they arise they will disappear.
Allow them to go away.
Let things happen through mind-ego
and just stay Quiet as they happen,
with the firm conviction: I Am I Am.
This meditation is absolutely necessary to clear tendencies.
Only in the dream do you see objects.
Know that all objects are dream objects
and that the dream snakes are not real.
You have been ignorant for years
so when you know the Truth
you must focus on staying as such for some time.
What else is important.
If you ﬁnd that you are still in the mind,
never mind! Don’t remember!
Then you will not forget.
Though name and form and place and ﬁelds are different,
Consciousness is never different,
so let there be these differences,
but do not accept and reject anything or you divide yourself
and there is no love in this division;
take a cent from a dollar and you no longer have a dollar.
If you have to think, think "I am pure consciousness".
If you have to speak, speak about the Self.
If you have to read, read what the Enlightened have written.
I advise you to keep good company, a pure sattvic diet,
attend Satsang, and live in harmony with nature.
Be as you Are and allow no concepts to trespass into your peace.
Your foremost duty is to remove concepts and engagements.
Love all beings, love all beings, love all beings.
Treat the ego and mind like shoes:
wear them when you need to go out
and take them off at the door when you are home.
Otherwise the seat in which knowledge would sit is occupied.
The thought "I am the body is enough to occupy the throne,
so keep the mind and ego out with the shoes
until there is no in and no out
and no one left to Wear them.
Buddha nature flows front simple doing,
Allow things to happen, you just stay here.
What has to happen is happening.
Just remain here as Peace,
iust remain as Peace, just remain as Peace.
