This Consciousness is "that" present in everything, and that become everything present! This Consciousness is Love, Bliss, Peace and Truth, the Truth about Itself!
Truth is something unheard... unheard and unreachable! When This is present, "you" are not: you and your beliefs, conclusions, ideas, opinions; you and your certainties, doubts; you and your ethics, moral; you and your things... when the Truth is; "you" are not!
It is easy to entertain yourself with simulations, with imitations. It is just another distraction yet, from the intellect, which is the ego. These studies you mentioned, these practices, spending years and years and years reading the speeches from Self realized, all of this is harmless to the ego. That will not achieve your heart like an arrow, and stop this illusion of "someone alive." Only when that "someone alive" is "dead", the Truth is present!
Sitting here is already a Divine Grace! There is no other word! Having the opportunity to be sitting here today is a Divine Grace!
The mind "gives" names to the days, and so it is Sunday today, yesterday was Saturday and tomorrow will be the Monday... besides that, the mind localizes itself in the time, "saying": Sunday is beach day, or to be with the family, not in Satsang; or Saturday is party day and not of Satsang. I am telling you: the days have no name. You only have one day at a time, to get up in the morning, look at the sky and say: today is the day of Truth, Freedom, Happiness! It is the day of God! It is the day that "I Am what I Am!" It is the day of Wisdom! It is a day to be "What I am"! It is a day of "no lie", "non-illusion", of "no conflict", of "no fear"! It is a day of Bliss! A day of Consciousness!
It is not a day of politics, beach, soccer, social changes. It is not a day to remember the independence of Brazil, or... It is a day of "I Am who I Am," a day without stupidity, mediocrity, arrogance, humility, modesty... "A day without me!!!”
Existence is not going to miss you anyway. The universe is going to have no idea that you existed at some point! You are not going be missed anyway, it is not going to be a tragedy anyway! A day without this "me" is a day without being grandmother, mother; without being father, son, grandson; it is a day without fear!
"A day without me" does not have twenty-four hours because "a day without me" is not a day. There is no time, birth, as well as there is no death in this "day without me", too!
How many are willing to This? I can tell you: very few! Everyone wants to live one day being "someone" to some or to many... they want to live many days, years, like this! Where is that who is willing to die right now? Because it is only when you die at that moment, moment by moment, the days are like this: without time!
That is why, when you come close to me, wanting to be "someone," I do not recognize your importance, but it is enough! You do not feel important in front of me, but, you feel that I am seeing you! Do you realize that it is not the other ones that you need? You just need to see yourself in your Real Nature! It is not the image you have from yourself that you need! I repeat: you just need to see yourself in your Real Nature. The image you have from yourself is that gives you self-importance, this is the illusion of needing others, of being accepted and understood by them, who feel the same about you: they want to be accepted, loved, understood... and nothing of this is real! You are not real and they are not real.
The curious thing here is that you feel that I am watching you, but it is not so, because you are not something separate from what I Am. When you look at me, you see me, you see "What I Am", you see what you Are, and it has no self-importance! When you see "What I Am", which is "What You Are", there is no such self-importance! It is only when you are in the blind spot that you believe you are seeing something, understanding, knowing something for sure, and then you think you can fool me. In this blind spot, you are deceiving yourselves, because it is not aware of yourself, what you Are, the Truth about You.
The value of these meetings is exactly this: you cannot fool me, because I know who You Are! This is called Satsang: the encounter with the Truth!
