THE WAY OUT OF DIFFICULTIES

  WORK CAN ALSO BECOME A SPIRITUAL PATH Being on this spiritual path does not mean one must shirk all one’s worldly responsibilities. The body needs food; after all, what is your body? Nothing but food. It is the food that is eaten by a person that produces...

KARMA AND FREE WILL

  Karma has been produced because of free will. Divine Will does not produce any Karma, for Divine Will is non-binding. But free will can be binding, and there can be good Karma and bad Karma. They are binding because all Karma has nothing to do with the...

THE VALUE OF BODY & MIND

  WE ARE SUBJECTED TO THE WORKINGS OF NATURE There is no difference between body and mind, and the difference would be subtle; in other words, the body exists on a grosser level than the mind. The mind, which also matters, exists on a more subtle level. Being...

WHAT IS OUR DHARMA?

  When a person is born, he is born with certain tendencies, tendencies which might go back into many previous lifetimes, if one believes in that, or even tendencies which he inherits from his parents. But the environment in which he is born also influences his tendencies, and...

THE MEANING OF TRUE ACCEPTANCE

  NO ONE ON EARTH REMOVES ALL THEIR SAMSKARAS As we have discussed before, all the impressions that we have had form what is known as our ego. No one on earth, not even the greatest man that has ever lived, including Krishna, Christ or Buddha, could get...

  EVEN THE AVATAR HAS EGO When it comes to a great teacher, an Avatar, an Incarnation who has come to teach the path for people to reach this level, he has taken upon himself an individuality. Suppose you can picture yourself an ice cream cone from the...

HUMILITY REQUIRES STRENGTH

  In the Bible, it says that “the meek shall inherit the earth.” The meek shall inherit the earth, not only the earth but the heavens. Meekness is not cowardice. Meekness comes from strength; a better word for meekness is humility, and you have to be strong to...

WHAT IS DHARMA?

  It is so surprising that Dharma and Karma rhyme so well, and yet Dharma and Karma are just but the obverse and reverse side of the same coin. It is a misconception to believe that Karma is wrong; you have good and bad Karma. Good Karma means...

HOW TO GUIDE ACTIVITY

  Activity itself is expression. The finest thought in man’s mind is a form of mental activity. Life is composed of activity, activity, and activity; but how to guide this activity, how to control this activity into useful channels, until even control is not required anymore, until that...

  The dream is the most critical mechanism; the greatest gift man has been given. Do you know that you are evolving even in your sleep? That motion set forth in the path of evolution is not stopped when your conscious mind goes to sleep, but it continues;...
