Always be Connected to Your Inner Light

banani_ray_inspirational_quotes_2.jpg

“Always feel connected to that inner light, and not to the mere physical form of the external guru. Attachment to the external form of a guru sometimes creates bondage. This is why Buddha said, “Rely on the message of the teacher, not on his personality; rely on the meaning of his words, not on the words.” — Excerpt from the bookAwakening Inner Guru” by Banani Ray and Amit Ray (This material is copyrighted, and published by permission from Inner Light Publishers)

Real Love Never Binds You

“True love and devotion can transform your narrow human existence in to the spacious expansion of consciousness that encompasses all. True devotion can work as a wonderful alchemy that can change all the mundane things in to the sacred and divine. When the mind is imbued with devotion to your own inner Self, all your thoughts and actions are liberated in the subtle presence of the guru as humble offerings of fragrant flowers of multiple colours. This is the meaning of true worship.
Real love never binds you; it makes you free. True love and devotion kindles your own inner light. Real devotion is not mindless and undiscriminating following of another’s whims or personality; it is not dumping your karma on your guru, relinquishing your own responsibility towards yourself; it is not standing in the long queue hoping to have a glimpse of your guru or offering some flowers showing your respect. Real devotion is an unbroken longing for the truth, which manifests itself as silent reverential gratitude. Real love is a humble receptivity of a silent heart that is prepared to melt and merge in the divine. — Excerpt from the bookAwakening Inner Guru” by Banani Ray and Amit Ray (This material is copyrighted, and published by permission from Inner Light Publishers)

Learn to Listen to Your Inner Voice

“Prophet Mohammad learnt from his inner voice that directed him to read the Quran, though he was illiterate. The mysterious inner voice read through him, revealed to him the beautiful stanzas of the Quran. The Chinese mystic Lao Tzu also attuned himself with his inner silence to learn the mysteries of life from the Nature. Listen to your own inner voice. Listen very attentively, very consciously, and you will never go wrong. When the inner Guru is awakened, the need for an outer Guru dissolves. When this awakening takes place, the disciple becomes one with the guru. You merge with your inner Guru. — Excerpt from the bookAwakening Inner Guru” by Banani Ray and Amit Ray (This material is copyrighted, and published by permission from Inner Light Publishers)
