All the thoughts that everyone in the entire world thinks, will think, and has thought already are in the cosmic mind. The thoughts are only waiting for customers. As soon as you think, you are now part of this group. No thought is new, as nothing is created nor destroyed. The more you focus and fine tune your mind, the sooner you connect to the station of wisdom. The music of wisdom is always playing, you just have not found 95 FM. When you find that station, you gain access to infinite wisdom. Even without thinking, your subconsciousness draws the information you need. Now people will call you a wise person. You are the same, you are only relaying the information. This is the secret to seeing all the sages and saints as one. They are offering the same information in different languages, adding to it their spice of wit, so you can laugh. You may say you never thought of something before, but it was always with you. One day you may call me a hypocrite, as I am only plagiarizing that to which everyone has access. When everyone tunes into the station, my job is over. — Satish Daryanani

Touching or seeing are limited in a way. In touching you are only using your body; in seeing you are limited to the sense of sight. But the flow of energy is not limited to these things; it can travel fast. Thought forces are even more powerful than physical forces.
Meditation is freeing the mind from thoughts of sense-objects. Mind dwells on God and God alone during meditation. Have perfect ethical perfection. Then alone you will be established in deep meditation. Meditation follows concentration and samadhi (super-conscious state) follows meditation. * * * * * Be courageous. You will come across various obstacles in meditation. You will have to conquer sleep, distraction, a taste for sensual pleasure, laziness, etc. Practise asanas regularly. Do a little tratak (gazing) and pranayama (yoga breathing). Do vicara (enquiry). Cultivate vairagya (dispassion). You will conquer all obstacles. Samadhi is that state of pure consciousness, the supreme blissful state where the jivatma (soul) becomes… Read more
A new talk every day:
by Swami Satchidananda
There is an eternal silent entity within us all. And that is what you call the “silent witness” or the “Knower.” The scriptures talk about that as the eternal witness. That is the light in you, or the Self in you, or the Atman. It doesn’t talk or do anything—it just is. And that is what you call “God.” It is due to our own limitations that we say, “God did this, God did that, blessed me, or punished me.” God never blesses or punishes. God just is.
