Emergency

In the Unites States, when we have an emergency, we call 911. Other countries have their own codes. In an aircraft emergency, oxygen masks fall so we can breathe. Boats are equipped with flare guns, which you can fire to call for help. So what is the code to call God when there is an…

Momentum

Sometimes I get momentum and many thoughts are written one after the other. A poet, writer, or an artist, gets a momentum of creativity. We sometimes get a momentum of ideas. An aircraft needs momentum to take off. Spirituality, too, has a momentum. Sometimes it leads to such experiences that no words can describe them.…

Living in the Past

You know the age of a person, not by their looks, but by the way they talk. If they only talk about the past, they must be senior citizens. They have nothing to look forward to, so they can only indulge in the past. My spiritual Master used to say, “Onward, Forward, Godward.” There is…

Lease

Our physical bodies come with leases. Some have their lease for a short time, others may have it for over hundred years. When we sign the contract, the number of years is written in a very fine print. You need a special lens to read the number years for which you signed up—the lens of…

Wanting More

I was watching a TV series about a Mexican drug dealer. The kingpin got arrested and lost everything because he wanted more power and money. We put on weight and lose our health because we want to eat more. Even devotees want God more and more. Those who develop inner strength want to grow even…

Going for Surgery

My good friend will be undergoing a surgery next week. There is always a risk, and we do not know the outcome. All we can do is pray for and bless them. They might even feel better, as loose nuts and bolts are put back correctly. I always wanted my spiritual Masters to do surgery…

Our Personal List

We can make a list of all the things we would like to do, experience, and improve upon. With the grace of God, most of the things I wanted to experience, I did. On the other hand, some things will always be on my list—to be humble, to have patience, and to never lose my…

Short and Sweet

Some thoughts that are sent are long and have a lot of depth. In a few words, a simple and sweet statement can also have a deep meaning. Today, it is simple. Did you reach safely? My spiritual Master used to call me to find out if I reached my destination safely after a journey.…

Virus

More than the Coronavirus, the greatest virus threat in the world is fear. Being cautious is one thing, but dying from the fear of death is worse than dying from the virus. We all have to die, whether it is from a virus or from the clogging of our arteries. The world’s economy is suffering…

Raising Our Voices

We raise our voice in anger, excitement, enthusiasm, and impatience. Our voices have different levels. If I hear a raised voice, it reminds me of all the scoldings I received during my entire life. As I was a naughty boy, I only heard everyone speaking to me in high pitch. When I started hearing my…

Private Island

Many rich people buy islands for themselves. They like to invite their business colleagues, friends, and family to show off their exclusive residence. I, too, have a private island. It is private, and I can enjoy it even when I am at a Super Bowl with 100,000 fans. I don’t need a boat, a helicopter,…
