An analytical mind cannot gauge the depths of mystery that has shrouded our life, soul, and God. It was on 12 July 1977 at 4.30 PM that I surrendered to God and inscribed in my notebook, maintained at that time, “I accept my defeat in the spiritual battle with God” and signed below it. Then […]

In India, marriages are still mostly arranged by the parents considering caste, status and other factors, and organized traditionally. However, traditional customs are giving way due to the stress and strain of modern life. In such a situation, pairs of lovers, mutually agreeing to marry but from a different setup have to face the wrath […]

Yesterday when I got home I noticed my mother was coughing; she seemed worse than the night before. She was still taking the honey and lemon remedy she’d prepared. As I respect her beliefs I didn’t say anything. When she went to bed she coughed non-stop. Now, since I’ve been walking the “spiritual path” I’ve […]

Last night I watched a documentary on television that cited several major cities under threat of flooding and other “natural disasters” due to “global warming.” Scientific experts predicted how long it would take for this to happen. The knee-jerk reaction is to ask: When are people going to realise that if you project something like […]

There is one to fulfill our dearest wishes

Jun 062006
 

All of us will agree that we seek love and pleasure. If these are based on just expression and are non-physical then certainly two people (gender is not important) will gain mutual love. Compare the friendship between two innocent children in comparison to adults who are mostly indulged in the tug-of-war of self-interests. Let me […]

Wisdom – the third eye

Jun 062006
 

There are questions that are asked out of curiosity, fear, anxiety, and tension. If some fortunate one happens to develop a real wisdom his curiosity and other negative traits disappear forever. As long as we are selfish and pursuing our whims and fancies we are blind spiritually. Our two eyes always see shortcomings and defects […]

Saved by destiny or God?

My experience of 4 July 1977 (please see my article: Death – a great spiritual teacher, indeed!) made me believe in God instantly. Till that time I only felt that people use the name of God to protect their self-interests and they don’t have a firm belief in Him because they keep pursuing their self-interests […]

I believe while there is only one Love there are different expressions of that Love. There is Love that is acceptance. You can accept someone for who he is without agreeing with his behaviour. You know he is expressing himself based on what he knows or believes. And while you accept others as they are, […]

My friend, a family man, came to meet me from a distant city. He expressed his desire to own a small house for himself and stay alone. The reason was that his mother, wife and only son (18 years) were siding against him and confronted him on certain issues. The son had dropped his exams […]

“So you feel quite independent of Father’s wealth.” Ananta’s gaze was innocent as he resumed the barbs of yesterday’s conversation. “I am conscious of my dependence on God.” “Words are cheap! Life has shielded you thus far! What a plight if you were forced to look to the Invisible Hand for your food and shelter! […]

May 152006
 

This article is shared by SP Sharma Materialistic abundance prompts us mostly to enjoy our whims and fancies while a disgusted mind seeks release from all possessions including his/her physical body. These two attitudes of people create chaos and discord in society resulting in dissatisfaction at all levels. Moreover, infringement in fulfilling one’s desires, lust […]

The world has given us many questions, and even more questionable solutions, but never the real answer. The real answer is given long before even the first question could be asked, and long before the idea of a world could take hold in the mind. The real answer is the timeless truth of what I […]

“What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?” (1 Corinthians 6: 19) The way the interior of a house has been decorated reflects the owner’s personality. Even if the person has hired an interior […]

The February Newsletter of www.kenpage.com goes deeply into the question of relationships. The quality of our partnerships with others, it says, actually reflects the quality of the relationships we have with ourselves.
