Peace for the Soul

A common space for harmonic peacemakers

When a wise man has withdrawn his mind from all things without,
and when his spirit has peacefully left all inner sensations,
let him rest in peace, free from the movement of will and desire. …



For it has been said: There is something beyond our mind,
which abides in silence within our mind.
It is the supreme mystery beyond thought.
Let one’s mind and subtle spirit rest upon that and nothing else.


 
…When the mind is silent,
beyond weakness and distraction,
then it can enter into a world,
which is far beyond the mind: the supreme Destination. …
Then one knows the joy of Eternity. …
Words cannot describe the joy of the soul
whose impurities are washed away in the depths of contemplation,
who is one with the Atman, his own Self.
Only those who experience this joy know what it is. …
As water becomes one with water,
fire with fire,
and air with air,
so the mind becomes one with the infinite Mind
and thus attains Freedom.
