S.O.S.

The musical group, “ABBA,” sang the song, “S.O. S.” Whenever a ship, or a person, is in trouble, we send out an S.O.S.—Save our Souls. The irony is that the message is meant to save our human forms, and, yet, we want someone to save our souls, which are immortal. The only one who can…

The Life of a Butterfly

It is a long process to become a butterfly, and some live for a day or less. All that beauty can be enjoyed for such a short time. Some people catch butterflies and do not let them enjoy their freedom even for a day. All these vivid colors exist for only a short span of…

Being God for the Day

In the movie, “Bruce Almighty,” Jim Carrey has an opportunity to experience being God. So, if you are God, you have to experience the complaints from everyone, not just your family and friends, which you were already unable to handle. Everyday, new business deals will come: “God if you do this for me, I will…

Paying Fees

One of the things that I get upset about is paying cancellation or change fees. We get tempted by good deals on airline tickets, hotels, car rentals, and other prepaid discounts. Yet, things happen and we have to pay fees to make changes or cancel. When traveling with spiritual Masters, many changes are made and…

Tuning an Instrument

Before a performance, musicians tune their instruments to get the correct sounds. Even singers fine-tune to prime their vocal chords. If we are singing devotional songs to the Lord, why do we need to fine-tune anything? To please the audience, this is required. To sing for the Lord, we need to fine-tune the strings in…

Virtual Reality

After finishing a Star Wars virtual reality game, you experience a high. In VR, everything seems so real: the height of the area with molten lava fires at the bottom and getting shot with Blaster rifles. It feels like you are in a real fight. Everything is different, even your own image is changed. When…

Journey of God

We start being away from God, then a guide comes into our lives and shows us the way toward God. With grace, we reach a stage where we are on a journey with God. The load in your life will be reduced. The immediate difference is that you are not alone. A new friend is…

Patience

The patience with which predators hunt their prey is worth watching. For spectators, it can take hours of build-up for the actual hunt. Yet, the success rate of catching a prey is around 20 percent. Going on a safari, it can take hours, or days, just to see the bird or animal you wish to…

Cape of Good Hope

Seeing the end of the land and watching two oceans meet, is a wonderful sight. I was trying the see the line between, but there were only rough waters. There are those who go by road and walk to enjoy the view. Being in a helicopter and seeing it from the air gives a whole…

Harnessing Grace

In Mexico City there is a shortage of water, as the lakes have dried up. In the outskirts of the city, people can spend about 20% of their income and buy water from trucks. There is enough rainfall, yet they do not know how to harness the water. Most is wasted. Similarly, so much grace…

Circle of Life

In the Disney movie, “The Lion King,” the circle of life is mentioned. We are all connected in this circle. Those who want to live a selfish life do not believe in this connection. As your understanding grows, you will see that the connection is neither circular nor linear. It is nothing but perfect harmony.…
