Nature of Self-Realization


Janaka said:

7.1
In me, the shoreless ocean,
the ark of universe drifts here and there
on the winds of its nature.
I am not impatient.

7.2
In me, the shoreless ocean,
let the waves of the universe
rise and fall as they will.
I am neither enhanced nor diminished.

7.3
In me, the shoreless ocean,
the universe is imagined.
I am still and formless.
In this alone I abide.

7.4
The Self is not in objects,
nor are objects in the pure and infinite Self.
The Self is tranquil, free of attachment and desire.
In this alone I abide.

7.5
I am Awareness alone.
The world is passing show.
How can thoughts arise of acceptance or rejection?
And where?
