Cost of a Gift

Those who are blessed with gifts do have to pay a cost for them. Many singers get name and fame yet end up taking sleeping pills, drugs, and alcohol. They lose their privacy and go through major ups and downs of fame. If you have the gift of predicting the future, the suspense in your…

Little Things

Little things can change your life and destiny. A criminal is caught with little clues. Little actions can show love, caring, and service to all. You do not need to be Bill Gates to help the world. Little things can make your life complete. These little words can change your direction in life. Little words…

Merry Christmas

Today, Jesus Christ, the son of God, was born. We should be celebrating His birth. For me, today is the day to admire the qualities of this wonderful soul. We should appreciate God’s greatest gift to us—this human form. Instead, it has become a day of exchanging material gifts, which retailers like Amazon and Walmart…

Better Than Me

I like to be around smart people so I can learn from them. When I was young, most of my friends were at least twenty-five or thirty years older than me. Their experiences helped shape me. Even in sports, I play with professionals. If I beat them, I feel I have earned it. Being around…

Teacher and Student

In the game of football, when the New England Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady, and coach Bill Belichick were paired together, they won Superbowls. In Basketball, when the San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich and Tim Duncan were together, they won many championships. When the students leave the coaches, the teams do not make the playoffs.…

Two Emotions

Our lives are motivated by two emotions, fear and love. Our thoughts and actions are based either on love or fear. There is no other motivation. All our ideas are derived from these two. Think deeply and you will see that it is true. That is why humans love and destroy. Our relationship with God…

God’s Form

God is beyond form and yet, we cannot see Him. He is everywhere and yet, nowhere. If He took one form, which everyone could see, then for the history of mankind God would be limited to only that form. There would be wars over this issue. If someone thinks God is beyond that one revealing…

After Alcohol

After indulging in alcohol, some people speak the truth, some get happy, some get depressed, some open up their hearts, some loosen up, and others remain unaffected. Alcohol lowers our guard. We suffer hangovers and then regret our actions that result from losing our minds. Now imagine you have the freedom to put your guard…

Madness Gives Us Words

Some brilliant people are considered mad but, in their madness, comes some of the best words. From the madness of losing a loved one comes great songs. From the madness of longing for the Lord comes wonderful poems. From the madness of science comes inventions. Words written in madness have changed history. We have to…

Middlemen

We need middlemen to broker deals and to tell our points of view. If the middlemen do not do a good job, the message is misunderstood and deals are not completed. Actually, spiritual Masters are middlemen for God’s messages. They do try their best. Yet the messages are not always understood. We end up in…

2020–End of a Decade

A WhatsApp message I received today showed me the returns I might have made in this past decade had I had invested in various instruments. One of the best returns was from Bitcoin. It got me thinking about what kind of returns I got from the time I spent going within. It beat Bitcoin by…

Competition in Spirituality

We have made everything competitive, even eating food. Yet, there is no competition when it comes to the sweetness of sugar. Similarly, how we experience peace, God’s love, or wisdom, cannot be compared with someone else’s. There are many great souls who have gone deep within and have not put their experiences into words. These…
