...Whatever pleases you keeps you back...

"Q(questioner): How does one reach the Supreme State?

M(Maharaj): By renouncing all lesser desires. As long as you are pleased with the lesser, you cannot have the highest. Whatever pleases you keeps you back. Until you realize the unsatisfactoriness of everything, it's transiency and limitation, and collect your energies in one great longing, even the first step is not made. On the other hand, the integrity of the desire for the Supreme is by itself a call from the Supreme. Nothing, physical or mental, can give you freedom. You are free once you understand that your bondage is of your own making and you cease forging the chains that bind you."



- Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj (I AM THAT- Talks with Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj)
