    Wherever you are remember yourself; remember that you are. This consciousness – that you are – should become a continuity. Your name, your caste, your nationality are futile things, absolutely useless. Just remember that: I am. This must not be forgotten. Walking, sitting, eating, talking, remember that:I am. Never forget this.

    In the beginning you will keep forgetting; there will be only single moments when you feel illuminated, then it is lost. But don’t get miserable; even single moments are much. Go on, whenever you can remember again, again catch hold of the thread. When you forget, don’t worry – remember again, again catch gold of the thread. By and by the gaps will lessen, the intervals will start dropping; a continuity will arise.

    Whenever your consciousness becomes continuous, you need not use the mind. Then there is no planning; you act out of your consciousness, not out of your mind. Then there is no need for any apology, no need to give any explanation. Then you are whatsoever you are; there is nothing to hide.

    Whatsoever you are, you are. You cannot do anything else. You can only be in a state of continuous remembrance. Through this remembrance, this mindfulness, comes authentic religion, comes authentic morality.
