The inner child

Omkaradatta's picture

I am now 74 years old. And yet I feel that I am an infant. I feel clearly that in spite of all the changes, I am a child. My Guru told me: that child, which is you even now, is your real self (swarupa). Go back to that state of pure being, where the 'I am' is still in its purity before it got contaminated with 'this I am' or 'that I am'. Your burden is of false self-identifications -- abandon them all.

My Guru told me -- 'Trust me. I tell you; you are divine. Take it as the absolute truth. Your joy is divine, your suffering is divine too. All comes from God. Remember it always. You are God, your will alone is done'. I did believe him, and soon realised how wonderfully true and accurate were his words. I did not condition my mind by thinking: 'I am God, I am wonderful, I am beyond'. I simply followed his instruction, which was to focus the mind on pure being 'I am', and stay in it. I used to sit for hours together with nothing but the 'I am' in my mind, and soon peace and joy and a deep all-embracing love became my normal state. In it all disappeared -- myself, my Guru, the life I lived, the world around me. Only peace remained, and unfathomable silence.

Learning from children

Omkaradatta's picture

It would be more interesting to learn from children, than try to teach them how to behave, how to live and how to function.

— U.G. Krishnamurti

Do you feel like you have a strong "inner child"?
