Big Word Mean Little

When traveling with my spiritual Masters, I heard many people speak about spirituality. Some liked to use words like “transcendental” or “quantum mechanics” or “cosmic consciousness.” Words that are short—like love, peace, service—carry the most value. Even God is a small word. I questioned my Master, “Why are big words used, and why is spirituality…

Pleasing God

In life it is not possible to please everyone. Do things to satisfy your conscience without a selfish motive. God is happy with this simple act. You do not need to perform austerities, stand on your head, or do a lot is service. Just work on projecting your vision of the world. With correct thoughts…

Intentions

We say one thing and think of another, while our intentions could be totally different. Spiritual Masters know the true intentions of their disciples. Even God knows the true intentions behind our prayers and love and service to Him. Even when people are nice and show their love to us, we do not know their…

Overanalyzing

We have so many videos, books, Whatsapp messages, and free time today that we overanalyze everything. We now have 8 billion doctors, presidents, prime ministers, and spiritual masters. Everyone has an opinion. We are making decisions for God. We are thinking of karma, dharma, and the punishment of human beings. There is no collective penalty…

Understanding Each Other

Parents are trying to understand their children, and children are trying to understand their parents. We are all trying to understand each other. When I pray, I ask God, “Are you understanding what I am going through?” Today I wondered, “Am I understanding what God is trying to do?” We cannot understand God and His…

Running vs. Walking

As gyms are closed, I see a lot of people running when I go for my evening walks. They are in shape and have a lot of stamina. I used to run but now I walk, as it is better for my joints. I used to run after things a lot. Even recently, I was…

Wanted

In the Wild West, a reward would be posted to find the most wanted person in the law. We all want things. We want to be free from house arrest. We also want God and peace. We even may not  know if our wants are good for us. If only we would realize it is…

Updates

We have to perform updates on our electronic devices when needed. We have to wait patiently for the system to reboot and we must remember all the passwords. My direct connection with God has a password, “Love.” If someone hacked my device and found my password, it would not bother me. God would shut down…

Songs

Songs bring back memories. Some songs remind me of my parents, school, friends, and some remind me of my spiritual Masters. Having a lot of free time now, I have been listening to old songs and I am reliving the past. Some songs inspire and give the positive energy that I need. The songs make…

Ventilator

When you have the coronavirus, you have difficulty in breathing. Your lungs need assistance from a ventilator. It feels as though you are drowning. I wish they had ventilators for those on the spiritual path. If you choose the path of devotion, your lungs go through the same experience, like you are suffocating. You are…

Steamed Rice

In the English language, there are 26 letters in the alphabet. To explain spirituality you can only shuffle these 26 letters. The spiritual Masters try their best to put it into words. It is like giving steamed rice to the hungry. As the Masters evolve, the disparity between their teachings and their experiences increases. They…
