What is left is simply Awareness."

Some of her gems: ‘To die before you die, means to die to the idea of being a person, and to realise the infinite awareness that you're really are.’ ‘When the body ends, Awareness and Consciousness remain as always-fully aware and fully alive’.
‘Your real self is the only permanence in existence. Everything else comes and goes, appears and disappears'. On attachment : ‘You can desire and have whatever you want; the problem only comes when you’re attached to those things'.
On Reactions ‘ Reactions are unconscious beliefs’
The Greatest Secret reveals the greatest discovery a human being can ever make and shows you the way out of negativity, problems, and what you don’t want, to a life of permanent happiness and bliss
“The world is so unhappy because it is ignorant of the true self. Man’s real nature is happiness. Happiness is inborn in the true self. Man’s search for happiness is an unconscious search for his true Self...when a man finds it, he finds a happiness which does not come to an end.’ - Ramana Maharshi.
