Poonjaji Quotes

I want this, I want that. I dislike this, I like that. If you remove this switch of like and dislike, how will you feel? Instantly you will be free. Likes and dislikes keep you in bondage and suffering.

People don’t fully desire freedom. How many people desire freedom? I tell you that you are already free and you don’t accept it. You wan to do something. Freedom doesn’t need any effort. Other things may need effort. Freedom is free. Free of your efforts.
I have to laugh sometimes because I see fish in the river crying, “I am thirsty.” “I want enlightenment” is the same thing.
