Emotions

We watch movies which create in us a variety of emotions. We get happy, sad, angry, afraid. We watch the news and our emotions get elevated, as we think the news is real. When we see something happening in front of us our emotions get more affected, as we are watching the action in real…

Prosperity

God may give me prosperity, but of what use is it if I lose the awareness of being in this human form? It’s all over. I can be aware of this prosperity for about 60–100 years. What then? How can I be aware of my being? I am stuck with the three states—thirst, hunger, and…

The Price We Pay

Everything comes with a price. It could be name, fame, power, or money. It could be wanting to be a spiritual Master or a seeker, or to maintain your peace, to enjoy wisdom, to speak the truth or to lie, to be able to serve, to give or receive love, to experience God, heaven or…

Relax

I see people sleep a lot, drink a lot of alcoholic beverages, read books, spend time on their phones, or talk to others when swimming in the pool or while relaxing at the beach. While I was walking to my room, suddenly, appeared the pure presence of the Lord. All my relaxation from the outer…

Indoors or Outdoors

Based on the weather, and the virus laws, we decide whether to sit indoors or outdoors in a restaurant. Indoors, the temperature is the same, the sounds and music consistent, and the lighting is the same. There are no mosquitoes or bugs. The outdoors is not in our control, as it is determined by the…

Words are like Arrows

People use words like arrows to tear through the heart. Words can destroy people, their self-esteem, and can lead to depression. They can cause anger, hatred, and desire for vengeance. The same thing can happen when spiritual Masters use words like arrows. They, too, pierce hearts and cause pain—the pain of displeasing them or not…

Too Late

We realize our mistakes and sometimes, it’s too late to do anything about them. We break relationships and often are unable to repair them. Most of us will realize that we have completely wasted this life but, it will be too late to fix it. It’s is like going to Paris for the first time…

Magic Wand

Grace is not a magic wand with which your identification, habits, attachments, desires, and who you are, can be transformed in a split second. Grace sends you a guide and creates perfect situations to transform you. This past year we all were driving on an expressway in life. Each one of us received equal grace…

Doing Without Analyzing

Some people are only disciplined in their exercises but not in the intake of their foods. Many follow the strict rules of their religions yet, cannot keep their minds under control. Many believe in God but the smallest thing scare them. Many work hard for their children’s future and yet, never enjoy spending time with…

Children’s Marriage

Most parents get involved in who their child marries. They want their child to find a spouse from the same caste, religion, and background, as they feel it becomes easier to adjust. I play with their minds and ask, “Suppose your child met a wonderful person who was not from the same background, would you…

Miss the Take

We must not miss taking lessons from our “mis-takes.” All mis-takes are stepping stones on the path of learning. I am nothing but the sum off all my mis-takes. If you have never made any mis-takes, then you will remain the same, no more growth. Even God is always learning, no more dinosaurs or T-Rexes,…

Crack

Crack is a drug that can get you high in a few seconds. The first time it’s used is the best experience and then you are hooked. You can keep trying but the experience of that first high will never come again. We want to escape from our problems, pain, stress, and from ourselves so…
