HOW TO BECOME FEARLESS?

  IF FREE WILL IS USED POSITIVELY, THEN HATRED WILL BECOME LOVE When we suffer from emotional problems, we do suffer them without the realisation of Divinity. In other words, fear suffers within itself. Jealousy suffers within itself. Any form of negativity is perpetuated by itself. If there...

HOW REAL IS REALITY?

  People usually try to project themselves into things they are not, and when one projects oneself into something which one is not, one lives in a false world or unreality. You always find that every man thinks he is more handsome than he is, and every woman...

HOW TO OVERCOME WEAKNESS?

  DO GOOD, BE GOOD A way to gain discipline would be through devotion and surrender. That devotion takes the form that, “Not my will but Thy will be done,” and when man fully appreciates and says, “Thy will be done,” surrender to that will come spontaneously. That...

THE VALUE OF GOOD INTENTIONS?

  Most people have good intentions, but the question is, what is behind the good intentions? What is the motivation for the work that one wants to do? I have encountered people who would join various organisations and societies and do excellent work. Yet, that fantastic work brings...

HOW TO MAKE DIVINITY CONCRETE?

  IN MEDITATION, THERE IS NO FOCUS REQUIRED Focusing does necessarily involve some kind of concentration, and concentration is something which is at a level not as deep as meditation. In meditation, we go beyond focusing or concentration; we go beyond contemplation, and then we enter into the...

DUTY AS AN ACT OF LOVE

  EVOLUTION AND ITS OPPOSITE INVOLUTION There is no difference between the individual ego and individuality because it is the individuality that creates the ego, which in turn creates individuality. One’s ego or individuality is unique because each soul or mind has undergone different experiences throughout evolution. However,...

TURN THE OTHER CHEEK?

  If you are slapped on one cheek, turn the other one. So said Christ. This is very good, but nowhere in the scriptures where it says, do not defend yourself. In practical reality, specific measures are to be taken, but not to the extent where it is...

THOU SHALT NOT KILL

  The scripture says, “Thou shalt not kill.” In its border aspect, killing is wrong because if you cannot give life, what right have you to take life? But this was said thousands of years ago when the world was not so technologically advanced. Today, you will know,...

CAN WE GO BACKWARDS?

  There is no spiritual development. You are as fully developed as you are. Evolution has to do with the unfolding of oneself, and it can only be progressive. You might go through specific experiences that seem retrogressive to you, but every experience experienced is for a purpose,...

DIVINITY IS WITH YOU

  In our daily life, obstacles will come but do not become faint-hearted, for you have the most significant force with you. The tremendous force of Divinity is with you and within you, and Divinity acts. It does not come down with a hammer or string to tie...

EVERYONE WILL REACH HOME

  When a person is unkind, uncharitable, and intolerant, it is a sure sign that he only functions with a tiny part of his mind. At the same time, through meditation, one gradually starts to work in totality, body, mind and Spirit. Naturally, when you function in total,...

THE HOW OF LIFE

  PURE CONSCIOUSNESS IS THE ESSENCE OF OUR LIVES Pure consciousness is the essence of our lives. Pure consciousness is all life force, undying, never-ending and forever there. So, what do we want? Do we want to be tossed around from pillar to post, or do we want...
