THE REAL SELF  | PART 05 OF 14 | IWGR I | RAMA राम

If so , feel it , put it into practice , repeat it in the language of feeling , in the language of action ; realise that you are not the body .

If you live this thought only , if you work into practice even so much of the truth , if you are above the body and the mind , you become free from all anxiety , all fear . Fear leaves you when you raise yourself above the level of the body or the mind . All anxiety ceases , all sorrow is gone , when you realise even so much of the Truth that you are something beyond the body , beyond the mind .

After that , the youth was helped on a little to realise what oneself is , and was asked ,

" What have you done today ? Will you please let us know the works or deeds that you have performed this morning ? "

The youth began to relate ,

" I woke up early in the morning , took bath , and did this thing and that thing , took my breakfast , read a great deal , wrote some letters , visited some friends , received some friends , and came here to pay my respects to the Swami . "

Now it was asked ,

" Is that all ? Have you not done a great deal more ? Is that all ? Just see . "

The youth thought and thought ; and then mentioned a few other things of the same sort .

" That is not all ; you have done thousands of things more ; you have done hundreds , thousands , nay , millions of things more . Innumerable deeds you have done , and you refuse to make mention of them . This is not becoming . Please let us know what you have done . Tell us everything that you have done this morning . "

The youth , hearing such strange words , that thousands of things had been done besides the few that named , was startled .

" I have not done anything more than what I have told you ; I have not done anything . "

" No , you have done millions , trillions , quadrillions of things more . "

How is that ?
