Nisargadatta Maharaj - Quiet mind

“A quiet mind is all you need. All else will happen rightly, once your mind is quiet. As the sun on rising makes the world active, so does self-awareness affect changes in the mind. In the light of calm and steady self-awareness inner energies wake up and work miracles without effort on your part.

The mind craves for formulations and definitions, always eager to squeeze reality into a verbal shape. The unchangeable can only be realized in silence. Once realised, it will deeply affect the changeable, itself remaining unaffected. To know yourself, be yourself. To be yourself, stop imagining yourself to be this or that. Just be. Let your true nature emerge. Don’t disturb your mind with seeking.”
