It's only a Dream

“The substance of a dream is held in materialization by the subconscious thought of the dreamer. When that cohesive thought is withdrawn in wakefulness, the dream and its elements dissolve. A man closes his eyes and erects a dream creation, which, on awakening, he effortlessly dematerializes. He follows the divine archetypal pattern. Similarly, when he […]

“Be still, and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46: 10) “Gurus can arouse intense emotions as there is extraordinary passion in surrendering to what one perceives as a living God.” (From “The Guru Papers: Masks of Authoritarian Power” by Joel Kramer and Diana Alstad, by p.33) “So although most gurus preach detachment, disciples become […]

“Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.” (Jesus, John 16:24) “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. ” (Isaiah 55: 8 ) I am about to get off one bus. I’m wondering whether the […]

I was on my way to the library yesterday afternoon when I bumped into a dear friend I haven’t seen in months. She asked me whether I was about to send her one of my stories. I told her I already had. It turns out she was about to check her emails and use the […]

Imagine you’re having a conversation with someone but you can’t hear anything. You ask the other to speak up as you can’t hear. The other nods and still you hear nothing. You’re getting really annoyed as you believe the other is not taking you seriously. The other may very well be speaking telepathically but since […]

Star date, 98765.3, Saturday. (Sorry, Star Trek humour). It’s another day in paradise I’m about to have a gander around the shops in the west end. I’ve been pondering over infinity. I have a thought to get out of the city and head towards Hampstead Heath. I figure I could go to Regent’s Park which […]

“But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven.” (Jesus, Matthew 5: 44-45) “Judge not according to the appearance, but […]

“Where there is no vision, the people perish.” (Proverbs 29: 18) One thing that’s bugged me since I was a child was my eyesight. I’ve done the rounds, been to opticians, specialists and was wearing glasses for years. Every two years I would go for an eye-test and told the same story, that I have […]

It all started when I was travelling by bus. Before I proceed, can I just say that there is a lot more to my life than travelling on buses, in case you’re wondering. No there isn’t. Anyway, it’s another day in the Year of Our Lord called Saturday. I am on a single-decker bus, an […]

“The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” (Jesus, John 6:63) I know we all have our ways to access our true nature. Some of us study truth teachings from the various scriptures and other metaphysical works, some study with spiritual teachers, others practise personal development techniques etc. I […]

“Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” (Jesus, Matthew 26:41) “Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God.” (Romans 13: 1) “Greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the […]

I’ve been thinking what tolerance means for me. The dictionary defines tolerance as: “The capacity for or the practice of recognizing and respecting the beliefs or practices of others.” “The capacity to endure hardship or pain.” (http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=tolerance) There was a time not too long ago when I was sick of living in the UK and […]

I was travelling on the bus, again. I highly recommend it, very entertaining experience. We arrived at Euston station. I heard a man speaking to his young daughter. “Do you know what station this is?” “Is this where we say goodbye to mummy?” she said. “No, this is where we usually greet mummy,” her dad […]

“Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity. What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun?” (Ecclesiastes 1: 2-3) “I don’t know why I like him. I just do.” (From the lyrics “So Emotional” sung by Whitney Houston) “It is the spirit that quickeneth; […]

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” (Hebrews 13:8) We already have access to all good but one reason why it is not manifested is because of our concept of time, that time passes. Did you know that when you realise that time doesn’t pass, the experiences that the historical Jesus […]

“For in him we live, and move, and have our being.” (Acts 17: 28) One of my favourite pastime is sitting at a bookshop. Sometimes I sit in the coffee bar section enjoying a drink. I also love sitting in those comfy chairs browsing or having a cat-nap. Bliss! I am sitting at a bookshop […]

“Be still, and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46:10) I remember the first time I experienced the Inner Light during meditation. I completely lost all sense of time/space/me-ness/you-ness and it just is. I had never felt such utter joy and bliss. I stayed in that space for ages. (It doesn’t seem right writing about […]

It’s Summer in the UK as in many parts of the world. It’s meant to be hot but it’s been quite cool over the last few weeks. I’ve been wearing cardigans; it was only a week ago when I tentatively put away my fleece jacket. Today feels really warm.

“Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” (Paul, 1 Corinthians 6;2) “This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalm 118:24) So there’s no time, right? How does this apply to my life? I am a practical type of person. […]

“I am the LORD, I change not.” (Malachi 3:6) “For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad.” (Jesus, Mark 4: 22) I was speaking recently to a friend that sometimes I feel like I’m a completely different person from the one […]

Have you ever tried seeing people as who they really are? Yesterday on the bus I tried to see people as whole. Now this is a tricky one since I’m so used to seeing others 2-dimensionally i.e. either from the front or the back. I also have another way of seeing as I’ve got double-vision […]

“But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.” (St Paul, 1 Corinthians 13: 10) A famous Hollywood actor goes to see a casting director for a screen test. The director tells him he doesn’t need to do the test as the movie’s in the bag. […]

Last week, I decided to walk to all my destinations. By the end of each day I had walked about 8 miles. One thing that struck me was I wasn’t tired at all. One evening just as I was getting closer to home I had a thought that I hadn’t gone on my walks for […]

Hello all Had a wonderful day yesterday. (Every day is wonderful!) The morning started off special – I stayed in bed…breakfast cereal…bed…made a sandwich…bath and then off to the west end. I had a thought of Krishna and wondered whether I should go and take part in their Sunday feast at their temple. Then I […]

Yesterday I was sitting in a library when a woman came up to me and said “I’ve just been thinking about you, this is amazing!” I realised I knew her from university. We actually had a brief encounter two years back when we chatted for a while. She was pregnant at the time. She was […]

Yesterday I met a baby on the bus. I knew that there was a reason why I was drawn to play with her. I spoke to her grandmother and she mentioned that the baby was allergic to wheat. I asked her how she knew the baby was allergic and she said the baby comes up […]

Every day I’m being reminded that all is Mind. I am sitting on a gold mine. It takes being aware, super-conscious, in order that one can truly inherit the “Kingdom.” I am remembering that God-consciousness is knowing that God is Mind, Mind being another synonym for God that is all Good. Thus I do not […]

Consciousness is all there is. There is only the One Consciousness appearing which is unchanging, eternal and all Good. When Consciousness is appearing as a state, it is in constant flux. In truth, only Consciousness that is eternal and unchanging is Real; Consciousness that is in flux is illusory in nature. Let me clarify what […]
