Know your Self and you know everything – H W L Poonja

Peace is beyond thought and effort. That is why keeping quiet is the key to the storehouse of Love and Peace.
To be bound takes effort, to be free takes no effort.
Know your Self and you know everything.
The concept of effort and practice is bondage.
To be this Moment abandon all desires, including the desire to be in it.
Forget what can be forgotten and know yourself to be that which can never be forgotten.
Name and form can never leave consciousness, as the ring can never leave the gold. H W L Poonja
