THE NATURE OF THOUGHTS

  “FIRST WAS THE WORD AND THE WORD WAS WITH GOD, AND THE WORD IS GOD” That which we know as evolution was created at the time of the big bang when billions and billions of articles flew through this vastness of the universe. The neutral energy or...

STRETCHING THE EGO

  It is a misconception that one must get rid of one’s ego to fulfil one’s potential. That is not possible. If man remains an embodied being, there will be ego. In the grosser person, the ego would be expressed in a gross value, and in a more...

  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;...

EVERYTHING IS PURE

  MAN SEE THINGS TO BE IMPURE BECAUSE HIS MIND IS LIMITED The Absolute is forever a pure entity, and being a pure entity, it is always a simple entity. All the relativity that we perceive around us is always very complex. The primal simplicity has become complex,...
