39 Self inquiry Quotes Inspirational - Page 1

"Inquire 'Where does the mind come from? Who thinks these thoughts?' Watch the thoughts, watch what they're doing to you, observe them, do not react to them, but ask, "To whom do they come," and realize they come to you. 'Who are you? Who am I?' and as you follow the I thread to its source, there will be perfect peace in your life."

"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."

"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."

What is the source of the I?' As you do this, my friends, I can assure you a marvelous change will take place in your life, sooner or later, and you will become free."
