If a desire can be got rid of by satisfying it, there will be no harm in satisfying such a desire. But desires generally are not eradicated by satisfaction. Trying to root them out that way is like trying to quench a fire by pouring inflammable spirits on it. At the same time, the proper remedy is not forcible suppression, since such repression is bound to react sooner or later into a forceful surging up of desires with undesirable consequences. The proper way to get rid of a desire is to find out `Who gets the desire? What is its source?’ When this is found, the desire is rooted out and it will never again emerge or grow.
Ramana Maharshi - From:  Quotes To Enrich Life & Spirit by Anthony Morganti
You are awareness. Awareness is another name for you. Since you are awareness there is no need to attain or cultivate it. All that you have to do is to give up being aware of other things, that is of the not-Self. If one gives up being aware of them then pure awareness alone remains, and that is the Self.

He who thinks he is the doer is also the sufferer.
Ramana Maharshi
Look within. See the Self ! Then there will be an end of the world and its miseries.
Ramana Maharshi
Be the Self and that is bliss. You are always that. The Self is always realized.
