Hindsight: I used to be happy that this was the first hint/quote I put up, and therefore being the first statement on this page. Today, I am not so happy that this is the first statement on my page. I should have understood it way back at HINT 22. It creates a schism right out of the gate. *April 21 2013

We often feel that analytical meditation is too hard because we have to expend a lot of intellectual energy checking this, checking that, and conclude it would be better just to stop thinking altogether, to completely empty our mind. That’s just ego. How can you stop thinking? Thought runs continuously, like an automatic watch. Whether you’re asleep or under the influence of drugs, thought is always there. Your stomach can be empty but not your mind.

You can hold a million relationships and still hold them good, now this whole trying to fulfill someone's expectations does not arise, because if you are an expression of joy, anyway they want to be with you... if they are trying to extract some kind of joy from you, you will try to avoid them, yes?.... Switching your life from a pursuit of happiness, to an expression of happiness, is what really needs to happen so that relationships work on all levels.

The insight of a wise man is the world has pleasure but happiness is within. Pleasure is not equal to happiness. In the state of deep sleep one is happy without objects. He is awake to this inner kingdom. He is king without possessions as he possesses non-possessiveness. Ego is binding it defines one to limitation. Egoless-ness means no limitation. He is free without ego and hence no limitation.

From the viewpoint of lila (purpose-less play) everything is fine the way it is; here emphasis is on perspective, not accomplishments. The object, then, is not to achieve some end point but to learn to experience ananda, that pointless "enjoyment" which transcends the dualistic distinction of happiness and unhappiness. In fact, from this perspective, it is goal-oriented activity - striving for some other condition - that causes unhappiness and takes us away from enjoying the form that the lila assumes right here and now. The promise of a more perfect goal creates a sense of imperfection in that which is.
