Quote of the Day
19 October 2017


For the ego, self-inquiry is like soaking in sulphuric acid.
When you persistently and genuinely analyse
the 'I' sense in the light of self-inquiry,
things cannot continue living in the dark.
Untruth will simply dissolve.
The common mistake that is made,
even by spiritual seekers, is to examine
what keeps appearing in one’s life.
But it is not about what keeps appearing.
What matters is who you are experiencing it.
In whatever form trouble comes,
identity must be looked at first
for it is here, in the realm of personhood,
that the apparent 'becomes' the actual.
By inquiring into the one
in front of whom all of life appears
—the one with vasanas, good and bad habits,
likes and dislikes, aspirations and faults
—you sieve yourself out of confusion
by discarding the personal self-image.
Whatever you perceive
and whatever you perceive yourself to be
is seen in the greater space of clear seeing.
See: this space, the Self, cannot be stained or injured.
It cannot be troubled or acquire any type of sin
or merit or demerit, for it is formless, infinite and impersonal.
This twist or shift of perception from person to presence
to Unborn Awareness will be recognised as the work
and beatitude of the Supreme grace,
the great gesture of the Self to Itself.

~ Mooji
