Most humans go through life believing every bit of nonsense their minds spit out…and as you can see, some go insane. Now Ramana puts the mind in its place – he says it is only a bundle of thoughts. No, you don’thave to believe your thoughts…you can activate Spirit and allow it to dominate your mind. The mind is transient, unreal, Self is real and immortal. It is also pure existence-awareness and bliss. Thanks for another great post, Harsh!!!
Mercedes De Acosta was asking Sri Ramana Maharshi about which religion, teacher, or guru she should follow that would be most helpful to her.
Bhagavan Ramana replied, “If they can help in the quest of the Self. But can they help? Can religion, which teaches you to look outside yourself, which promises a heaven and a reward outside yourself, can this help you? It is only by diving deep into the spiritual Heart that one can find the Self.”
