This vs. That

Many people ask me, “Are you sure these thoughts come to you?” and “Where does that person go the rest of the day?” When you go very close to the sun, you dissipate into bits and pieces. Then you are completely connected. What comes from the source is not you. When you go back to…

Coca-Cola

Coca-Cola is one of my favorite drinks. Now that I am older, I drink it sparingly. It is very bad for my health even though I enjoy the taste. This world is like a Coca-Cola. All that is really tasty is not necessarily good for us. Everything that has a decent taste is very good…

Man’s Laws and God’s Laws

Man’s laws can differ from one nation to another. In one country, there is a driving-speed limit—in another, there is no speed limit. In one nation, you have to pay taxes, while another nation could be tax-free. In one place, it is legal to drink alcohol; in another alcohol is banned. So there is confusion…

Pirates

Pirates used to have cooler ships than those of the good guys. They are always depicted as villains in the movies. On Halloween, more people dress up as pirates than as British soldiers with red coats. We are attracted to villains. We all have this naughty side in us. Who gave this naughty aspect? God.…

Wearing a Mask

These days, with the Coronavirus, a lot of people are putting on masks during flights as a precaution. The kids do look cute with the masks on. We want to protect our health and bodies. I, too, wanted a permanent mask, so I would eat less and talk less. All the troubles in my life…

Knowing What Someone Wants 

Being around spiritual Masters, you develop the ability to see what people really want. Some come to the Masters for their name and fame. Some come to receive their love and blessings. Some come for a free ride so they can become liberated souls without effort. Others love their jokes and enjoy their friendship. Then,…

Last Breath

When I was young, I would wish that my last breath would take place while I was looking at my Spiritual Master. Today, it could happen while I am writing this thought. Every time I exhale, it feels like I am taking my last breath but, again, I inhale and I am told, “Not yet.”…

No Footprints Left Behind

A bird flying in the sky does not leave any footprints in its path. Sages and saints do not leave their footprints for us to follow them step-by-step. Similarly, in spirituality, we have to create our own paths. Our journeys are our own; there is no ready-made path. To reach the truth of ultimate realization…

Getting High

I was talking to a person about spirtuality, and he said that he gets a high. He does not take drugs but feels high, like he has taken one. Many of my spiritual Master’s disciples from the 1960s were hippies and took drugs to get high. A chemical high is temporary and follows with depression,…
