I AM THAT | CHAPTER 39 + 42 | NISARGADATTA MAHARAJ
|| < : SADHANA & HISTORY : >
Nothing stops you but preoccupation with the outer which prevents you from focussing the inner .
It cannot be helped , you cannot skip your sadhana .
You have to turn away from the world and go within , until the inner and the outer merge and you can go beyond the conditioned , whether inner or outer .
As long as you give reality to dreams , you are their slave .
By imagining that you are born as so-and-so , you become a slave to the so-and-so .
The essence of slavery is to imagine yourself to be a process , to have past and future , to have history .
In fact , we have no history , we are not a process , we do not develop , nor decay
