“When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.” (1 Corinthians 13: 11) I’m sure you all remember being a child, right? Your parents taught you about the world we live in, the […]

“Of course I’m lazy, I let God handle the details.” (Carson Attaway) “I can of mine own self do nothing.” (John 5: 30) Surrender, that dirty word. How does one surrender? How can I surrender to something I am not even sure exists? “Let go and let God!” Yeah, yeah, but how does it work […]

There comes a time in a girl’s life when she has to make a choice and stick to it. If you’ve read my stories, you probably know by now I’ve tried many different paradigms and truths. One truth that makes sense to me is that the world is a dream. I’ve had my fun and […]

“One formula or concept of God should not and cannot be forced on all.” “First Source is connected to individuals not organizations.” (Wingmakers) At some point in time last night I felt intense queasiness. I mentioned this to my mother. I had a sip of water, got engrossed in what I was watching on television, […]

The bus stop where I usually catch my bus is on top of a hill. Sometimes I see people running up the hill just in time to catch the bus coming from behind. This morning, while I waited for my bus, I observed a man running up the hill. Is there a bus coming, I […]

I’m on a bus again…altogether now…..Not another bus story! I’m riding on a bus. I have my eyes closed. I am enjoying being in silence. Someone has just sat in front of me. He’s listening to his radio at full blast. I glare at him, willing him to turn the volume down or switch it […]

One decision I have struggled with is how to treat others. What is the loving thing to do? Do I put other people’s needs first, or do I focus on my own needs? I realise now that it depends on how one perceives reality. To cut a long story short, I now only take into […]

I love travelling by buses, dont you? Yesterday I had another “Eureka” moment on the bus. Here goes… I have come to the realisation that in every moment I have two choices: to express all that I am; or to sabotage all that I am. Whether I am going against what I represent or expressing […]

There are many people I admire, particularly those who have become self-realised. But there are two people who are head and shoulders above the rest. The first runner-up is………..Captain Katherine Janeway of the starship Voyager, part of the Star Trek sci-fi television series. I believe she is an excellent role model for leadership. I admire […]

“The earth is the LORD’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. ” (Psalm 24: 1) You receive a letter notifying you that a distant relative has left you a huge inheritance in his will.

“And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me. ” (John 12: 45) Some kind soul has just pushed you over a cliff and you feel yourself falling. As you fall, you suddenly have a “knowing” that there is nothing at the bottom, you are falling for eternity. You have a thought: “If I’m […]

It’s really late, just gone after 12 midnight and I’m listening to my mother trying to decide whether she should go to bed or not. She has a ritual where, if she has a snooze in the afternoon, she finds she stays awake till late. She is trying to recall whether she slept earlier, as […]

“There are two dominant models of existence that shape the interaction and destiny of the human race. These models of existence are: — The Evolution/Saviorship model — The Transformation/Mastership model” “In the case of the transformation/mastership model of existence, its principle tenets are that the entity is limitless, deathless, and sovereign.

I now send all my emails as blind copies. There are times though when I need to double-check whether I have missed out someone on the list, but I’ve already pressed “Send.” The problem with sending emails “blind” is that the names are not recorded on the sent copy. So what I usually do is […]

“Pilate saith unto him [Jesus], What is truth? ” (John 18: 38) Years ago while I was at university I was inspired to study the truth. I wanted to know what made me the person that I am. Am I a gender, race, sexuality, class, religion, creed, nationality, genetics, my thoughts, emotions, my experiences…what? I […]

To blank someone is to ignore the other or treat her as if she is not there. The one being blanked usually feels as if the other is staring right past or through her. Some people find being blanked upsetting. I’m here to tell you that you should never be upset when you’re blanked, on […]

“There are three kinds of lies: lies, damn lies, and statistics.” (Mark Twain) Have you ever started a relationship with someone and made a conscious decision to only accept the person as he is right at this moment? How many people do this? You want to know what the other has been doing, what makes […]

I am writing this during the 2004 Olympics, which I have been following with interest. I reckon the Olympics is a perfect demonstration of mortal beliefs. These beliefs are to do with matter being real, that man has to take control over matter which has a tendency to fight back, that man’s experience is temporal, […]

“Master, you are wonderful” A student, asking his leave, gazed ardently at the patriarchal sage. “You have renounced riches and comforts to seek God and teach us wisdom.” It was well known that Bhaduri Mahasaya had forsaken great family wealth in his early childhood, when single-mindedly he had entered the yogic path. “You are reversing […]

“There are many languages spoken by things,” the boy [Santiago] said. “There was a time when, for me, a camel’s whinnying was nothing more than whinnying. Then it became a signal for danger.
