“LEAVE GOD ALONE. SPEAK FOR YOURSELF.
YOU DO NOT KNOW GOD. HE IS ONLY WHAT YOU THINK OF HIM.
IS HE APART FROM YOU ? HE IS THAT PURE CONSCIOUSNESS IN WHICH ALL IDEAS ARE FORMED.
YOU ARE THAT CONSCIOUSNESS.”
8th February, 1938
Talks with Ramana Maharshi
I think this is one of the most beautiful and profound things I have ever heard. When I read it, it spoke to my heart, it spoke of Truth, and it was telling me: Don`t speak in the name of God when you don`t know a thing. That is slander, using His name in vain.
We make wars in His/Her name, we enjoy being rightful/righteous by using his name, we press forward our causes by using his name.
But what do we actually know that we can be so sure and full of ourselves?
The best we can do is being humble and pray.
I AM that Consciousness….. I so wish I could know me.
