Core

All these daily thoughts are based on the same core—spirituality. Fancy words and variations of them are used to make them interesting. Yet, the basic core has to be the same or the purpose is defeated. If you are talking about the sun, you may refer to the planets or the cosmos, but you cannot…

Intention Behind the Words

We may hear the sweetest words but may not know the bitter intentions behind them. On the other hand, many times, my words are not used correctly and the pure intentions behind them are misunderstood. A spiritual Master may use harsh words, but His intention is only to reform you with pure love. When we…

Fueling Up

We think we are like Saudi Arabia, having an infinite supply of oil that can be turned into unlimited energy. We waste our precious energies on futile things that tire and exhaust us. If you feel fresh all day, like you are in the morning, you have managed your energy well. In today’s world, we…

Siblings

When people have brothers or sisters, appreciation of them only grows when they are far from them. As siblings grow, their personalities grow and they may drift apart from each other. Yet the bond that is formed in their childhood is forever. There are kids who have no siblings—no one to fight with, to argue…

Temptation

Why did God give us so many temptations? We receive many gifts from God and we get tempted and consumed by these gifts. They are given out of love so we can enjoy His creations. Those who have received fewer gifts are not so consumed by them. They find it easier to think of the…

Baked vs. Fried

No matter what food you eat, fried food always tastes better than baked food. For health reasons, we are encouraged to eat more baked food. My question to God is, “Why are all tasty foods bad for us?” We are given a variety of temptations but, if you have them in moderation, they are okay.…

A Happy New Year

Once in a century, we are hit with a virus that transforms our lives completely, like the Coronavirus, Spanish flu, or the Bubonic Plague. The last year gave us a once in a century opportunity to go within and become completely free. Our insignificance is understood. We cannot save others, just ourselves. Our value is…

Spicy Food

Some people love and can handle spicy food while others stay away, as their stomachs cannot handle it. The year 2020 has been a spicy year. Many are happy it is coming to an end. We may forget many years but not this one. It brought the best and the worst out of many people.…

Right Company

We choose like-minded friends. They pull us down or push us up in life. One of the reasons to be around spiritual Masters is that you spend less time with your regular friends. Through the Masters, you find new, like-minded people. This new group is on the same path as are you and everyone in…

Death Sentence

Based on the crime committed, a criminal may get a death sentence. The culprit does not get to reform nor does he get to pay for his crime. He suffers for a few minutes and is then dead. Life can either be a gift or a living death sentence. The worst punishment is to let…

Flight of Life

Those who have flown a plane know the joy of flying, of using the wind in your favor, and floating above and seeing all the beauty below you. One of the ways to describe being with God is floating above the world and seeing everything below. We realize how small and insignificant is everything. We…
