I am the mind
I am the body
are only illusions
I am the self
I am the atma
are only available solutions.
Says Bagavaan Ramana
The state before going to
sleep is a long dream of
names and forms
The state before the
deep sleep seeing names and forms
is a short dream
During the deep sleep
there is no knowledge of
mind and body and no dreams
and screams of fear and anxiety
when a river merge with the
ocean it loose its name
so also when the mind merge with
the atman loose everything in it.
when the mind completely dissolved
the atman shines in its full glory
as a sun free of clouds shines in the sky
when the mind forgets the
atman all the thoughts of I and body
the world of names and form appear
in our consciousness
when the mind thinks about the self alone
forgetting everything constantly
the thought of the body and world
which gives us untold suffering
why not you make sincere efforts to retain the
small amount of bliss enjoyed during deep sleep
daily permanently in your heart?
oh seeker !
Decide yourself which do you prefer?
To remain with the mind and suffers
for millions of years or
to remain permanently in the self
enjoying eternal bliss?
