One can take it for granted that passing a final examination of one’s studies is half the purpose behind getting educated. Getting a satisfying career is the better half of it. Alternatively, one can begin a career based on available knowledge and while continuing the career enroll in a distant education course and attain more […]

Love first, understand afterwards

The worldly mind cannot think of the true meaning of love and devotion. Normally, physical love and being attached to it is taken for love. Similar is the case of devotion to God, which we are doing materialistically. Thus, common man usually is mistaken about the true meaning of love and devotion.

Love is where expectations are absent. Normally, our relations do not meet this requirement, because if we do something for someone it is in the expectation of return in some form. The expectation is the poison that, even in trace quantity, spoils the whole sweetness of our relations.

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55: 8-9) “For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that […]

Here’s the situation. We are spirit, and mind is our instrument to be active. This mind, in a moment of temporary insanity, dreams up a world of form separate from the one and only reality that is God. Separating from the all powerful One is a fearsome act, but by mental dissociation the mind escapes […]

Most minds are infested with a sense of insecurity at some stage of life. It appears in uncountable forms and each one is so strong at a given time that it turns the mind mad. It results in a variety of ailments and moods. The effects of insecurity are not easily discernible or understandable, and […]

We happen to be in this world unknowingly but started liking it for various reasons. Our liking develops to such an extent that we try to prolong our life as long as possible by all means. The moment we gain our senses we start considering our body as “I” and start seeking pleasure through our […]

“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you.” (James 4: 7-8) In the presence of Love, human efforts are meaningless. As humans, we have our ideas of what Love is and what it means to act from a place of Love. All of that is made-up stuff […]

Part I During the early 1950s, when I was between 5 and 8 years old, I was staying in a scarcely populated village and vast stretches of fields seemed to meet the sky at the horizon. In the evening the whole village used to drown in darkness as the only source of light was a […]

In my neighborhood a girl of seven years old approached her mother with a new pencil brought from a nearby shop. Her mother asked her where she got the money to purchase it. She innocently replied, “Mummy, you only told me that the shopkeeper is ours.” This was the shop where they had an account […]

Tension, anxiety and fear, altogether called stress and strain of life, are not desirable emotions, but they exist in most people. We don’t know how they intrude into our life and they persist in spite of all our efforts to remove them. There are situations in which we can seek the guidance of wise people […]

Our relationship with God remains like that of a beggar and his donor as long as we pursue worldly objectives. Before asking favours from God we try asking them from others, but if fulfilled we hardly seek help from God. It means that for our requirements we are a beggar before others and in their […]

Beings of Light

We, who are imprisoned in matter, have to bring our “I” out of matter and darkness into the light. On the level of the spiritual world, we humans, in our wholeness, are light beings. We must, and always will develop towards the Absolute Light, which we call God. In this process we are accompanied by […]

A few days ago I watched an episode on television of Star Trek TNG called A Fistful of Datas. The crew are given the rare opportunity of pursuing recreational activities. Worf, the security officer, is bored. He is a man of action. He is also of Klingon origin, a race of people who kill first […]

Paramour Love – enjoying the eternal relationship with God

Worldly relations depend on fulfilling the desires of others, approving their conventions, meeting requirements, and so on. In short, it is a selfish game of vested interests; a tug-of-war between two parties or individuals. People who hardly know Alpha and Omega of their own religion criticize the other’s religion. It is rightly said by someone […]

This article is shared by Max DeJong I myself do not believe in ‘coincidences’. I think of them more as ‘coinciding incidences’. Carl Jung described this phenomenon as ‘synchronicity’ and I quote: “Meaningful coincidences are unthinkable as pure chance–the more they multiply and the greater and more exact the correspondence is… they can no longer […]

It is the commonly agreed upon illusion that it represents value, therefore it was given power and we all agreed to sustain its status.
