Was a great meditation to type this book from Robert’s hand written pages…
Anyone interested in Self-realization would benefit from looking into this book:
Robert Wolfe’s Website:
“The task performed by Bhagavan Sri Ramana was to reopen the direct path of Self-enquiry which had become too arduous for our spiritually dark age. This path, with its theoretical basis of Advaita, stands, so to speak, at the source from which the various religions diverge and can therefore be approached from any side. Whether there are many or few who take it is not the question, only that it has been made open.
In itself, but for the Grace of Bhagavan, it would be the most inaccessible to modern man on account of its very simplicity and directness; and yet it is the most accessible, and in many cases the only accessible path, from the contingent point of view, since, because of its very directness, it requires no ritual or forms of worship, no priesthood or congregation, no outer signs or special observances, but can be practised in the workshop or kitchen or city office as well as in the monastery or hermitage.
In the same impersonal way a man can attend to all the affairs of life, knowing that he, the real Self, is unaffected by them; and every attack of greed, anger or desire can be dispelled by vichara. It must be dispelled, because it is no use repeating that one is the Self and acting as though one were the ego. Real, even partial, awareness of the Self weakens egotism: egotism, whether expressed as vanity, greed or desire, is a proof that recognition of the Self is merely mental.
This means that in adapting an ancient path to modern conditions Bhagavan has in effect created a new path. The ancient path of Self-enquiry was pure Jnana-marga to be followed by the recluse in silence and solitude, withdrawn from the outer world. Bhagavan has made it a path to be followed invisible in the world in the conditions of modern life.
Whosoever submits to him will be borne up and never forsaken. “God and Guru are not really different; they are identical. He who has earned the Grace of the Guru will undoubtedly be saved and never forsaken, just as the prey that has fallen into the tiger’s jaws will never be allowed to escape. The disciple, for his part should unswervingly follow the path shown by the Master.” Arthur Osborne

Natalia helps to keep me (Rafael)
focused on removing the distractions to abiding as Self.
It is all too easy to kid ourselves into believing
that we have arrived somewhere spiritually guaranteed,
that we are enlightened or liberated.
Of course, the Self is ever-realized,
this is beyond mental speculation or debate
yet how do we live? Are we embodying this in daily life?
Seriously, are we?
If not, then the obstacles need clearing.
Ramana and Natalia shine the light on
these obstacles daily,
and oh boy! there are many!
“Self interested scholars who use their learning-even their precious sacred learning- to accumulate fame, wealth and power over the lives of others are like diseased fruit that remains hard and can never ripen. Such fruit possesses neither the fresh tartness of green fruit nor the sweetness of ripe fruit. Consider the vultures who soar to such astonishing altitude, yet whose sharp eyes are always scanning the ground for dead and dying creatures. Merely intellectual, egocentric scholars and philosophers engage in great flights of reasoning, pretending the perennial wisdom is their own, but they remain fixated on selfish enjoyment and personal aggrandizement. Supreme reality can never be grasped or even touched by the mind, and hence cannot be defiled by those who are hungry for personal power.”
