Immigration Officer

It is the job of immigration officers to let visitors enter a country. They know what to look for and what questions to ask. If the wrong kind of people enter, it takes a lot of time and energy to remove them. Our senses tell us which food or drink should enter our bodies: if…

Actor

To play the part of Gandhi, Lincoln, or any famous person is not easy. You may have to put on or lose weight, put on a lot of make-up, and practice the accent of the person. The audience must feel that you are the character that you are playing, and even cry at the scenes…

News

The meaning of news is facts from the North, East, West, and South. Today, however, it is only the opinions of the media without any investigation in the story. They put it in a question form, and not a statement: “He is guilty?” “God is dead?” “There is no God?” And so on. This way,…

House of God

I was in a church yesterday. There, I saw a mother keep on telling her child to kneel down and ask for a wish. So, the child is learning from the mother that a church is a wishing well. When she grows up she will see the church only as place to fulfill her wishes.…

Luck

Some believe that people are successful because they are lucky. If they are struggling, they blame it on bad luck. When you see your reflection in the mirror, do you say that the reflection is good or bad luck? When Michael Jordan hits a game winning shot, do we say it is luck? The truth…

A Realized Soul

A realized soul would rather receive blessings than give blessings. He is always willing to learn in the university of life. He is crushed by the grace of realization, and the world thinks he is humble. On the other hand, he can roar like a lion and tell you he can lead you to God…

Everything from Nothing

All your austerities will lead you to nothing. You will experience and realize nothing. Then you can talk and write about nothing. All your attachments and desires will dissolve into nothing. You will spread the teaching of nothingness. You will fear nothing. You will have guilt of nothing. You ambitions and goal will become nothing.…

Buddha

Buddha had no Guru, spiritual Master, nor a guide. He had questions, but no answers. He left his family and his kingdom to go into the forest to find answers. If only he had a guide to tell him, “You can run away from the kingdom, but not from yourself. The same person will also…

Blessings

The first type of blessing is a blank check. You want unlimited wealth, wisdom, peace, and the absolute truth, and so on. The other blessing is a check with a specific amount. A good job, a good spouse, good results in an examination, free from a specific health issue, etc. Then there are those who…
