Oneness

A seeker asked a spiritual Master to describe Oneness. The Master whispered in the seeker’s ear, “Death.” This one word has many meanings: the death of the ego, death of ignorance, and death of your identifications. When we think we are someone, we are alive and therefore, there is a separation. Now, there is Oneness…

Limitless

What would happen if you could use 80 percent, or more, of your brain? Everything will be clearer, all that you see, or hear, will stay in your memory. You can learn everything easily, you will have confidence, and your horizon will be unlimited. This does not require a pill, and you can tap into…

Spirituality Lingo

“Mediation,” “inner peace,” “Kundalini Yoga,” “out-of-body experience,” “awakening,” and many more words are used so often by people that their value has been reduced to peanuts. These precious words have to be earned and not spoken about. The one who knows the true value will not reveal all the details about them. These are all…

An Evening Out

After being cooped up inside, it is nice to have an evening out.  With whom do you go? You are still the same person who was inside and now you are going out in the evening. The location changed but not you. So, if you go out, go as a new person, the new you,…

We Don’t Want It

Many times I give up on things, even after I put in my best effort. After it is out of my mind, out of the blue, it suddenly falls into my lap. I honestly did not seek peace and spiritual life, write spiritual thoughts, or try to spread the teachings. I went on this path…

This One Is for Me

Many people in history have taken lives in the name of God and religion. Many have also given their lives for the same. Your life is completely intertwined with God’s will. In other words, if, even for a split second, you experience anxiety, stress, fear, anger, or disappointment, you are an atheist. Your reactions will…

The Search

When a person is in great physical or mental pain, he or she searches for a guide, and some seek knowledge of the self. Unless you are pure in your quest, you will not be able to realize the benefit of having a guide. You will see the guide as an ordinary person. The guide…

Braids

When I was younger, I would make fun of girls who would tie their long hair in braids, the strands intertwined like ropes. All of us have a braid made up of our past identifications, attachments, desires, and experiences, intertwined with our present. Those who want to take a spiritual path, like monks, are told…

Effect

We do not know what effect we have on others. Just like a flower is unaware of its fragrance, we, too, are unaware of our positive or negative effects on others. We see the world only from our points of view. Egoistic people think they have real value and are gifts from God. Others may…

Your Capacity

My capacity to hold my temper is small. My capacity to have faith is much greater. My capacity to give love is small, but to receive love is large. No one knows more about my capacity than my spiritual Masters. They knew how much to give me so that I would bend but not break.…

Playing to Lose

By nature, I am very competitive and always want to win. One day, my spiritual Master told me to enjoy watching the other person win. So I started losing on purpose, and the other person did not enjoy the game, as he knew I was losing purposefully. I learned then to try to do my…
