When true love is awakened in the aspirant, it leads him to the
realization of God and opens up the unlimited field of lasting and
unfading happiness. The happiness of God-realization is the goal
of all creation. It is not possible for a person to have the
slightest idea of that inexpressible happiness without actually
having the experience of Godhood....
When one becomes God, everything else is zero. The happiness of
God-realization, therefore, cannot suffer curtailment by anything.
The happiness of God-realization is self-sustained, eternally
fresh and unfading, boundless and indescribable. It is for this
happiness that the world has sprung into existence.

- The steadiness and equanimity that remain unaffected by any opposites is possible only through complete detachment, which is an essential condition of lasting and true happiness.
- The Divine Heritage Of Man
- The individual and the unaided efforts of the aspirant are so often unsuccessful, because the very source of such efforts which is the ego, is rooted in ignorance.

- It Is Better To...
- It is better to die than to live, better to fear than to die, and better to do than to fill.
- Internal Fountain Of Bliss
- If one were to treat maya sincerely and whole-heartedly as pure imagination, the resultant poise and non-identification with things external would automatically open up one's internal fountain of bliss.

- These Are Real Tests
- The more the opposition from maya, the more you should resist and face it with fierce determination.

- When we are driving on tour and there is dust and we feel hunger, thirst and feel sick, then feel as happy as you do now. This is poise.

- Pay No Attention To Them
- Baba has always said that it was useless to try to control disturbing thoughts by repressing them mechanically.
- You Govern Illusion
- When you are in the grip of this "I," which due to ignorance identifies itself with the body, illusion governs you; but when you know the Truth, you govern illusion.
- God Loves Most The So-Called Destitute And Helpless
- The greater the helplessness, the greater can and should be the dependence upon God for His help.

- The whole play of illusion and the suffering it engenders functions by the divinely established law of karma (cause and effect).
- A Goal Of Paramount Importance
- All Baba asked from each was a happy face and work done cheerfully.
- Remain Happy
- Mere verbal knowledge does not help much, but remember one thing, if misery and happiness are in the domain of Nothing and are really nothing, then why not always choose to be happy?

- Weakness is but a degree of strength.
- Imperishable Sweetness
- One must contact the ocean of unfading bliss within, and be free of the limiting duality of "I" and "you."
- If You Believe I Am God, Then Why Are You Not Happy?
- I felt like saying, because I was still rebelling, "Yes, but I don't have bliss at my back" the expression Baba used in God Speaks when speaking of the Avatar having a mortal body."
- Happiness Through Love
- True happiness begins when a man learns the art of right adjustment to other persons, and right adjustment involves self-forgetfulness and love. Hence arises the spiritual importance of transforming a life of the limited self into a life of love.
- Spiritual Birth
- If the world of form is only an illusion in reality, and if its harvest is such a rich one of misery, then why should its experience be required of the soul?

- In short, just think less of yourself and more of others. Real happiness is to make others happy.
- The Joy Of Inward Companionship Of The Divine Beloved
- It is only when the soul attains God-realisation on the seventh plane, that the soul gets full control over its joy: the unlimited happiness, which is eternally his, does not, in any way, unbalance him because he is now permanently established in the poise of non-duality.
- Struggle For Peace And Happiness
- Peace and happiness are not to be fought for but to be sought for within oneself.
