the Guru's grace

Bhagavan is always bestowing grace. To regard the real as unreal and the unreal as real is alone ignorance. You yourself are always shining naturally as 'I','I'. Does Bhagavan exist apart from that being-consciousness? It is the attention turned toward the body that causes the distinctions between 'you' and 'I'. If, through Self-attention, it [attention to the body] is itself transformed into being-consciousness, and if one realises that the reality is only one, where, then, is the scope for saying, 'you' or 'I'? Remaining still, having realised the truth as it is, is the Guru's grace.

~ Bhagavan Ramana
