All there is consciousness. That is the Source from which the manifestation has come.
Ramesh Balsekar

The ego is the identified consciousness. When the impersonal Consciousness identifies itself with the personal organism, the ego arises.
Ramesh Balsekar

Brain is inert matter. Brain cannot create any thoughts. Brain can only react to the thoughts which come from outside and then get involved.
Ramesh Balsekar

Enlightenment is total emptiness of mind. There is nothing you can do to get it. Any effort you make can only be an obstruction to it.
Ramesh Balsekar

Identification with the body is so total that it gives one a sense of separate identity. Now, the separate identity is merely a concept, a concept based on the individual body appearing solid.
Ramesh Balsekar

What is seeking? Seeking is “you” wanting to know God.
Ramesh Balsekar

Consciousness is the only Reality.
Ramesh Balsekar

Understand that nothing happensunless it is God’s will anddo what you like.What can be simpler than that?
Ramesh Balsekar

Seekers continue to practice all kinds of self-torture without realizing that such ‘spiritual practice’ is a reinforcement of the very ego that prevents them from their natural, free state.
Ramesh Balsekar

Ego is the thinking mind.
Ramesh Balsekar

What is manifestation? It is just a sudden spontaneous concurrent appearance in Consciousness, within Consciousness, brought about by Consciousness. In that manifestation, the human being is just one object. Basically, as far as the manifestation is concerned, there is no difference between the human being and the inanimate object. So where does the question of individuality arise at all? That arises because in the inanimate object, consciousness is not there in the form of sentience. The human being is endowed with sentience, like any animal. Sentience enables the senses to work. The human being is essentially an inanimate object plus sentience, precisely like any other animal or insect which has the feeling of being present, the sense of presence.
Ramesh Balsekar

Mind is merely a collection of thoughts, or a collection of impressions which makes up this “me”, this self image.
Ramesh Balsekar

The thinking mind, the ego, the “me” are all the same. They are different names for the same thing, which is an illusion.
Ramesh Balsekar

It is the nature of the monkey-mind jump about and chatter.
Ramesh Balsekar

Birth and death are nothing but integration and disintegration, the appearance and subsequent disappearance of the phenomenal objects in manifestation. True understanding, apperception, includes the understanding that there is no separation between understanding and action.
Ramesh Balsekar

The only truth is I AM – I Exist. That is the only truth. Everything else is a concept. Rebirth is a concept. Your karma is a concept.
