Weekly Words of Wisdom by Swami Sarchidananda
- The True Self
"The true Self is eternally pure, unchanging,
immortal and never tainted by anything. It is
always peaceful. The problem is that you don't
see your true Self, but only the image of your
true Self on the mirror of the mind. So, when
the mind gets tossed, the image is disturbed.
The image seems to assume those disturbances
because of the mind. The image seems to be bound,
but you are never bound. If you still feel that
you have to liberate yourself, the only liberation
is to liberate the mind from the selfishness that
creates all this disturbance in the mind. Liberate
yourself from the personal ego, the I-ness and the
my-ness that says, `I want everything.' Then, you
will be always peaceful. You will realize the
true nature of your own Self.
"God bless you. Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi."
