The Moment

There are moments when time stands still. Whenever I would see my spiritual Master, time stood still. My ever-wandering mind would come to a complete stop. My eyes would tear, as I would be unable to blink—lost in the moment of calm as I gazed at my Beloved. The wandering of the world can come…

God Talking

If you are confident that you have received a message from God, or your spiritual Master, to do something, you have to act on it. That does not mean you should tell others about it. They will think you are crazy. The hard part is if the information involves another person. You cannot make another…

Mind vs. Heart

The mind has logic, it rationalizes all actions. It makes moves based on fear and insecurity. It sometimes overthinks and misses the simplicity of things. It is the main barrier in spiritual growth. The heart does everything out of love. It does not justify what it is doing. Even if the world may tell you…

Comeback

In sports matches, sometimes the key players play poorly in some of the matches. Then, in the following game, they become aggressive and win. Athletes are paid millions of dollars to play and yet, while trying to win the championship in the playoffs, they do not put in their best effort. Why do you have…

Healthcare

The healthcare industry in the United States of America spends 3.2 trillion dollars annually. Those who want to help with alternative medicine face a lot of obstacles. They do not understand that the healthcare system is a business like any other. It is profit-oriented, not service-oriented. We only like to cure the symptoms, not the…

Living Twice

We have to experience everything twice. Once as an aspirant and the once as an awakened being. You may have to travel to the same places, eat the same foods, meet the same people, go through the same pleasures and pain, see the same movies, and listen to the same jokes. The only difference is…

Taking Time to Decide

Some people take so long to make decisions that they lose many opportunities. They kick the bucket before they even make a bucket list. They want to experience God but do not make up their minds in time to work on it. Then it becomes too late and the experiencer no longer exists. Luckily, heaven…

To Touch Someone

We can touch someone with our physical bodies—with a look, a word, a smile—or with our thoughts and our actions. Within a few minutes of when you meet someone new, you may hear them say the words, “You made my day.” That reflects the gift of touching someone. Your day is not made by the…

195 Countries

There are 195 countries in the world. Most people will not even visit half of the countries. If we did, we would need additional pages in our passports for all the stamps. We tend to revisit the countries we love rather than seeing new ones. Only a handful of people may see all the countries.…

Rights and Needs

When someone speaks the truth about you, you have no right to get upset. If someone speaks false statements about you, then you have no need to get upset. If you understand this and, if anyone says anything about you, it will not upset you. That’s one less thing to forgive someone, as you were…

Every day is a Birthday

When we go to sleep we die. We become nobody, unaware of anything. When we wake up from deep sleep, it takes a few seconds to realize who we are. If we travel a lot, it takes a few seconds to realize where we are. People know their birthdates from their birth certificates, but the…

Mother’s Day

We celebrate Mother’s Day just one day a year. It should be celebrated every moment, especially if you were a naughty child, like me. Most people would quit, but mothers have no choice. Many of my qualities, my strengths and weaknesses, come from my mother — luckily more strengths. She alway said, “Look at those…
