Robert Adams Quote "We are right where we..." (1 Images)

"We are right where we are supposed to be, free and happy. But some illusion called the personal self, the I-thought, tells us quite a different story. It shows us all kinds of pictures in our mind, and we fall into deeper delusion. This is called maya, the grand illusion, the cosmic joke."

"Once you catch a glimpse of self-realization, you'll never go back again. There's no turning back."

- Robert Adams

"As you observe the thoughts they disappear, but more come, more come, and even when you're finished with them from this life, they'll come to you from a previous life. It never stops. So you have to keep asking the question, 'To whom do they come? To whom do they come?' And keep observing and following the I thought, and doing nothing, and one day it will all be gone, and you'll be free. But you have to have patience and persistence. Remember, it took us so many years to be the way we are, screwy, crazy, insane. So now it's going to take a little time, perhaps, to get over it."

"When you awaken, you appear the same as you are right now, only you're totally free. That's all. You're completely, totally free. Your people will still see you the same way you are now. They will not see any difference. If they stay with you twenty-four hours a day, they will notice you do not react to things any longer. They will notice you've become an embodiment of peace, that you're always happy, nothing disturbs you. There's absolutely nothing to be afraid of. It's a wonderful experience."

"It is the ego that keeps you in bondage. It is the ego that makes you believe you are what you are. It is the ego that causes all the problems to come into your life. The ego is your worst enemy. Therefore you have to do everything in life that you can do to annihilate the ego. The ego must be annihilated, totally removed, totally destroyed."

"Everything that is happening, is happening now. Not tomorrow or yesterday. It's all happening in the moment. So where is there to go?"
