If you remain aware that “I” am perfect consciousness, what does it matter how much you think, or what you do?
All this is unreal, like dream visions after waking.
“I am” is all bliss!
– page 245, Living by the words of Bhagwan by David Godman.
These words by Shree Bhagwan immediately dispel all doubts and remorse in me, all self-criticizing thoughts of not being good enough, not being appropriate enough in all that has been experienced or undertaken in this lifetime.
All thoughts are unreal and all doings is a predestined occurrence which the body and mind are destined to experience and are passing over the substratum of the nirvikar self that has ever remained untouched by my intentions, thoughts, emotions and bodily conducts.
This may not be an open approval/licence for harming others or conducting yourself mindlessly but may be interpreted in the light of truth and honesty alone. It may be used as a compass to return back to when one has wandered into jungles of self-criticism or of chasing one’s thoughts.
