Too Much Knowledge

Those who have read a lot of scriptures or have heard many talks of the masters have too much knowledge. Describing the experiences that come within you in words dilutes the true experiences. Some, who hear or read this, have enough knowledge from before so that, instead of listening, they reply with the knowledge they…

What’s Your Age?

We say our age based on the number of years we live. The real answer should be based on the days we are true to ourselves. Many women do not reveal their age, not because they want to be young, but because of the number of years they have lost by not being themselves. They…

If You Knew the Future

If you could predict the future, then you could bet on any game and win. You could buy stocks or real estate and make a lot of money. However, there is a price for that. You will know the ending of every movie before it begins. You will know when you are going to die.…

Using God

Prayers are good and very useful but I always hesitate to pray, as I feel I am using God. The only prayer I believe in is, “Thank You, Lord.” Yet, once in a while, when I face a real hurdle, where I need help, I pray to God and my hurdle is removed. Later, when…

Extremes of a Person

A person can be spiritual in the morning and very competitive and calculating in the afternoon. In the movie, “The Joker,” a person who wants to make people laugh is pushed by others to become a villain. Similarly, a lioness can hold her cub gently in her mouth and can, with the same jaw, take…

Rumors

We get carried away by what others tell us. Until we hear it from the source, from the “horse’s mouth,” it is only a rumor. People have nothing better to do, so they spread rumors about whatever they want and, as long as people believe them, the information spreads. It even may remain permanently on…

Miracles

To prove that one is a saint, miracles have to be performed. Some people do not believe in miracles. Others believe the formula that, if you pray, and if God so chooses, then miracles take place. Even if an alcoholic, or a very bad person, gets a miracle, he believes God will not waste it…

Inventory Control

Checking an inventory can take a lot of time. We have to tally everything and, sometimes, we cannot find a few pieces. That becomes a financial loss. How many of us have taken an inventory of our lives? We will find that we have wasted so much of our precious time, losing our peace on…

Giving Up Your Throne

Once you have power and are number one in your craft, there comes a day when you will have to give up the throne. With age, even great athletes lose their number one rankings. In business, some one younger, with newer ideas, can dethrone you. You could be the right hand of a spiritual Master,…

Leaving God

Sometimes we get so involved in things that we do not focus on spirituality or on God. In the last few days, my mind was so consumed by worldly matters that spiritual thoughts could not come. It felt like I had left God. Yet, God did not leave me. His hand of Grace is always…
