When to Cash Out?

Today the price of many stocks has gone high. When do you cash out? Many years ago, during the technology boom, my spiritual Master told me to cash out. I did not listen. Then came the crash and all my profits were gone. It is hard to time the market, so it is hit or…

Change of Plans

We plan many things, yet situations occur that are out of our control. I thank God for all the changes that take place. This way, I am not rigid in life. I am free from being controlled by the plans made up by my mind. Now I get to go with the flow and enjoy…

I am Weak

When I get upset, out of anger I often say, “Never again!” Yet when I am calm, my heart softens and gives in. This is my weakness, as I always feel God forgives me all the time. Human beings do make mistakes out of ignorance but do not know how to forgive and move on.…

An Offer You Cannot Refuse

We hear about these deals on the TV show, “Shark Tank,” and also from high-pressured salespeople. I was one of them, so I know. We want people to make decisions right away or lose the opportunity. Spiritual Masters make much better offers, but they give us lifetimes to decide. We are so stupid that we…

Reflection

We need a clear mirror to see our reflections. Our minds, too, are mirrors, but they are so cluttered up that we cannot see our own reflections. If we can clean our minds, we will see ourselves clearly. Let’s go further. If you do not exist, then whose reflection will you see? When you lose…

Not Taking Credit

When spiritual Masters bless, they do not like to take credit for the blessings. My spiritual Master would use the occasion of the death day of his Master to bless me in my spiritual evolution. He told me, “More important than the birth dates of the Masters are the days they leave their bodies. Today…

Testing

More and more people are getting tested to see if they have the virus. God is testing us every second to see if the virus of worldly attraction has consumed us. Every time I enjoy anything, my first thought goes to God to tell Him that I would still rather have Him. I am thankful…

Loss

For a loss to occur, you first must have something to lose. You cannot lose what you don’t have. For example, you must first have the experience of peace to say that you have lost your peace. You must first earn money in order to lose it. Even to lose your mind, you must first…

Fake News

We get a lot of news mixed with opinions, so the truth gets hidden. In the old days, the news was based on facts and was objective. We get carried away with what people say and do not exercise our judgment, do not know right from wrong. Spirituality, too, has become opinionated and simple, basic…

The Look

Whenever I behaved badly as a child, my father did not have to shout or hit me. The look he’d give me was enough to rattle my cage. My spiritual Masters would give me looks showing that they were displeased with me. I would contemplate on my actions, feel the guilt, and be miserable for…
