The mind may be said to be of two kinds,
Pure and impure. Driven by the senses
It becomes impure; but with the sense
Under control, the mind becomes pure.

It is the mind that frees us or enslaves.
Driven by the senses we become bound;
Master of the senses we become free.
Those who seek freedom must master their senses.
--Amritabindu Upanishad

I'll post some more every now and then....

of course you just knew I had to contribute to this thread

"Nor aught nor naught existed; you bright sky
Was not, nor heaven's broad roof outstretched above;
What covered all? What sheltered? What concealed?
Was it the waters' fathomless abyss?
There was no light of night, no light of day,
The only One breathed breathless in itself,
Other than it there nothing since has been.
Darkness there was, and all at first was veiled
In gloom profound, an ocean without light;....

Who truly knows, who can honestly say where.
This universe cam from
And where it will vanish to at the End?
Those godlike wise men who claim they know were born long
After the birth of Creation.
Who then could know where our universe really came from?
And whoever knows or does not know where Creation came from,
Only one gazing at its vastness from the very roof of the final Heaven
"Only such a one could possibly know,
But does even He know? "
- Rigveda - 129.6. 7

God reveals Himself to a devotee who feels drawn to Him by the combined force of these three attractions: the attraction of worldly possessions for the worldly man, the child’s attraction for its mother, and the husband’s attraction for the chaste wife. If one feels drawn to him by the combined force of these three attractions, then one can attain him.

The infinite joy of touching Brahman is easily attained by those who are free from the burden of evil and established within themselves. They see the Self in every creature and all creation in the Self. With consciousness unified through meditation, they see everything with an equal eye.

-Bhagavad Gita 6:28-29

My Child,
You may read or discuss scripture
As much as you like.

But until you forget everything,
You will never live in your heart.

-Ashtavakra Gita 16:1
