Changing Time

Silence

Sitting with a spiritual Master, or the Lord, you purify your mind. There are no thoughts and no words. You reach a state of nothingness. You are beyond time and space. You have nothing to gain or lose, and are free from dualities. You are free from desires and attachments. It is at this stage…

What’s in it for Me?

Dreams

We have wonderful dreams. We think they are real. Especially when we dream of our loved ones who are no longer with us in the physical form. When the Lord, or our spiritual Master, comes in our dreams, we do not want it to end. When we enjoy the dream, we are not waiting for…

Championship

We only remember the champions. The teams that lose get scrutinized. Only one team gets the trophy, when all the other teams have lost. In life we all want to be champions, only a handful achieve that. True championship is the trophy of being free. This trophy does not have to be won year after…

Getting Lost

With GPS in our phones and cars today, it is hard to get lost. Our lives are all about getting from one point to another. Try getting lost on purpose. You will find new places, new restaurants. Take lots of pictures. You will see new man-made structures and admire the creativity of architects. Even while…

Entertaining Yourself

You watch movies, sports, plays, concerts, read books, and more to entertain yourself. If you want to retire, you need to do things to keep your mind occupied. Either you have hobbies, spend time in silence, or serve. We have 24 hours in a day. To the one who knows how to entertain himself daily,…

The Fun of Being Selfish
