Toţi avem datoria să ne protejăm pe noi şi pe ceilalţi, partea 2 din 6

(Master said that Good Love was the assistant to the Third Level Lord, and yet Good Love came down to protect Master against him and maya. Why did Good Love choose Master over the Third Level Lord?)(Master, did President Donald Trump help bring peace between countries in a past life? For example, perhaps as a nation’s leader in ancient times?)(Master, did Chairman Kim Jong Un come to Earth for a peace-making role or another role to benefit our planet?)(Master talked about good leaders in the last conference. Why are the leaders that are good seem to be portrayed as the very opposite of that? Is that part of maya/negative forces, or is there a purpose behind it?)Anyways, it’s very difficult to recognize the bad from the good, because there is also some catch in between, some strings attached to what they do. I mean, before they were born. They have to do this and that. Also, to disguise. (Yes, Master.) So, they cannot just do all good, all at once. For example, like that. Or it seems like they did bad, but actually, they did good. (Yes, Master.) I told you before, I cannot explain everything. But trust me when I say somebody is good. (Yes, Master. Yes.)The good people, good leaders or the spiritual people, or good Masters, they came into the enemy state. It’s lucky that they’re still alive and continue working and not immediately killed almost, like Jesus Christ. (Yes, Master.) What has He done? The Lord Jesus, what has He done to anybody? (Yes, Master.) Even if He keeps preaching, even if He says He’s a child of God, so what? Nobody has to believe Him. (Right. Yes, Master.) But they don’t have to kill Him in such a way. (Yes, Master.) And for that, the world has to slump into darkness for a long time. Nobody sees it, but many people were condemned to hell and darkness for long, long, long centuries. And that influenced the development of our world, spiritually and scientifically as well. (Yes, Master.) Not just the meat eating that adds up on to it, that makes many wars, many plagues, many disasters. Do you understand me? (Yes, Master.) People don’t know it, don’t see it. But the murder of Jesus Christ brought so much misfortune, disaster onto our world.We have to work now, day and night. We cannot escape. We have to work. You can see the world is in such a shape. (Yes, Master.) …So we have to work. We must. (Yes, Master.) We must win. (Yes, Master.) We don’t let the maya win anymore, even indirectly through brainwashing the humans or some of their leftover weakling subordinates. Got that? Yes, Master. We have to win. We have to do it. We have to rescue all suffering animals so that we don’t cry anymore. (Yes, Master.)

"Master, many countries report that young people are staying away from alcohol and intoxicants. We’ve also seen kids doing fundraising activities for charities and animals. Master, is this because higher level beings are being born in our planet at this time?""Master, COVID-19 affects all corners of the globe. As the chief of the World Health Organization puts it, we “fight a common enemy.” We have seen more cohesive efforts in the world, for example, debt relief of underprivileged nations and collaboration on medical treatment research, etc. Will this trend continue and the world be a tight-knit community?""Master, as science and technology advances, we’re learning more and more about the universe. (Yes.) Will this prompt people to be interested in spirituality and seek the Truth?""Master, the Trump administration has announced Sudan and Israel have agreed to normalize relations. Earlier, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates established relations with Israel. (Yeah.) Could these events signal that the states of the Middle East and the North Africa region are also ready for peace just like in Korea?""Master, the lower Heavens’ gods attained their positions based on merit. Merit gave a compassionless Brahma the power to create the Three Worlds and rule over them. Does Heaven mandate that a being must have a certain amount of God’s Love before they can create and rule?"…They have, but limited. (Yes, Master.) It’s just like you, the so-called disciples studying with me. (Yes.) And I told you OK, you have to do this, you do that. Not have to, but you should. Like being vegan, being compassionate, being loving and kind. But they are trying. (Yes, Master.) You’d be trying. But that doesn’t mean that is enough to be worthy, (Yes.) except relying on the Master’s grace to go up. The love that you have is so thin, I mean the so-called disciples, so thin that they don’t even realize that they don’t have it. (Yes, Master. Understand.)…Just like, sometimes, people elected a leader, and they came in maybe with a big, big ideal – they think they have ideals or good intentions – but once they are in that power, they keep forgetting it. Or exercise very little of their idealistic power, idealistic origin. And they will just go with the flow, and their subordinates, everybody keeps feeding them with all the negative ideas and information that make them forget, and then they would just do wrong, forget their original ideals. This is not only Brahma alone, but this is also…

Use Our Wisdom, Part 10 of 10

Because you want to know yourself more, so you came here. Because you want to help others, so you help the homeless, the disaster victims, and Supreme Master TV. So, very simple life. Even I don’t need to teach anymore. Just like that. Inside, know yourself; outside, help others. Help other beings. Other beings, not just humans, but animals, insects.And one of the sisters in the temple, she took care of the master. Maybe helping with clothes and something like that, she and her mother. Oh, she was very jealous because the abbot was very fond of me. And one time… I didn’t know much Chinese at that time, but I knew they were fighting about me. That’s the first time I heard the abbot’s loud voice and very serious face. Normally, when he taught, he didn’t smile a lot, but he had never raised his voice like that. Afterward, I left anyway. So, after he knew about it, that his own people, disciples came and learned with me, he called me into his small studio where he saw the disciples, not his own room.He was a very ascetic monk; he really practiced. He slept only on the floor. I also. I had only one blanket, and a seat, folded into foursquare – the leftover blanket from other disciples before. And I also took their leftover clothes to wear. Life was so simple and happy, and, oh, no worries, truly. When somebody else already has a house for you, has a room for you, you don’t pay bills or anything. And you can take second-hand clothes to wear at your liberty, and even blankets you don’t have to buy; it’s already there. You shake it, and then you use it. I felt so cool. You don’t have a responsible feeling. That is the best thing. You feel so free, so free. I worked very hard.So, they were fighting, one day. So, I just pretended I didn’t understand much. I did understand some but not the whole thing. So, he asked me. He called me into the studio room, and he asked me, “You are teaching this and that people, right? They came to ask for your teaching, right?” I said, “Yes, they came. They forced me to.” He said, “It’s different from what I’m teaching here, right?” He taught breathing and concentrating maybe on the nose or finger, and the eyes opened one third. Just look straight in front of you with the eyes opened, like this, all the time. Oh, I cheated. I closed because it hurt so. Of course, he didn’t check. He didn’t check who closed, who did not.So, he was teaching his disciples to meditate and retreat, and we did all the same. I did the same. I never said anything, until those days when the Black American people came, and then the cat got out of the bag. So, and then he asked me, “How come you never taught me?” I was surprised he asked. I said, “Oh, because you never asked.” And that’s it. That’s the end of our conversation. He should have asked me. I only answered his question, but he didn’t ask further. Maybe he felt embarrassed or something. For spiritual practice, you should never bring your ego into play. You should be always eager to learn more. If I truly believe or know something better than this Quan Yin Method, I would continue. In fact, I did some, but nothing worked very well. Like all the yoga stuff. I went and tried different things, just in case. In the beginning. But, so that’s that.But if I truly know or believe that there is something better, I would go learn right away, even now. But because I know so well already, I know too well inside already, so I’m not going anywhere. That’s all. I just feel so happy if I have time to do my own stuff, not to go anywhere, learn anything more. Like the Buddha said, “You’re already finished with learning. You’re beyond learning,” in those sutras. I feel that way. I feel I’m beyond learning. Or behind learning. Something like that. OK, guys. Go eat, go home. (Thank You, Master.) You’re welcome.I’ll try the shoes. My God, it took me some time to pick these shoes to match my petticoat, and then it’s broken. Let me down like that. Because this one is easy. It doesn’t have straps or anything. You just slide in and go. And still, it let me down. Shame on you! You were selected. You should feel happy and honored. What did you do? You laughed at me. Look! I know why. It looks new because I don’t wear a lot these years. They bought so many; everybody bought different things. It looks new but it’s too old, or maybe it wasn’t glued well. We are laughing too hard, so… It also has a “soul.” Shoe has a “soul” (sole). Laughing. Has “soul,” right? Chinese don’t understand that. I play with words.Thank you very much. Maybe I can fix it, just glue. UHU, what is, Glue-All, everlasting glue. (Super Glue.) Super Glue. …cannot do it. Sorry, guys. Have to put it on here. Maybe I can see it better. For you, even more difficult to see your toes than I, so don’t laugh at me. I’m putting on some weight or something, sitting too long and computer every day, not used to it. Thank you. Good. Good, you give me shoes. Thank you. Getting better all the time. Give me glasses and then give me shoes. Complaining does work. How to say it? Complaining does work. You’ve progressed. The merit is immeasurable.I’m just doing with my feeling. I don’t even see where it is. That’s what I call “doing without doing.” Just use your feeling. Is it OK? No, the men don’t understand women. It’s OK. Very good. OK. Go eat, good appetite, (Thank You.) and good practice. Good practice. I thank all of you again for helping the world, by helping Supreme Master TV in any way.So, what shall I do? I have new glasses. Check it out. I like both, very fashionable. Which one looks better? (That one, first one.) This one. (Yes.) (This one.) Why? (Very fashionable.) Very fashionable? (It’s classy.) It’s good. It’s a good make. (White. Matches Your pearls.) My fake pearls, my vegan pearls. This one no good? Looks very impressive. (It’s OK.) Not impressive? Bigger than my face. This one’s better. (Fits better, yes.) Guys, you do know something about luxury. It’s a good brand. I don’t want to say what. People might think I got some commission from them. Famous brand. I was desperate. I needed something, and in the airport, they don’t sell cheaper stuff. Only in the gas station, you can find. These are a little bit big, but it’s good. It’s fashionable nowadays. They wear big things. This for me? Keep it here. So next time I come, I can wear it, or maybe I take it. It’s all mine. Mine. Not for you. No, no, no, no. I forgot what brand it is. I have to look, maybe, but I’m not telling you. No more secrets nowadays, no more. Too many secrets. Wow! No wonder. You know everything about luxury and good stuff. I did not know until I bought it. The price told me that it must be famous. And I asked, “Is this a famous brand?” “Of course, Master! What do You think? The name, You didn’t know?” I said, “No.” So many names nowadays are famous. Wow! You look better. When you don’t see people too close or clearly, they all look good and feel good. OK, thank you, friends.Love you guys. (We love You, Master.) (We love You more.) Are you sure? (Yes.) How can you love me more than I love? (Too good from You.) Cannot be possible. The fruit, give it to the new people. New people, never had? One. Never mind, never mind. First, just a banana. Sorry! (It’s OK.) Risk your life for it. It’s too far. Here. Banana is easier to throw. Wow! Incredible! Wow! Look at that! Should be on a football team. Give, give, give, give. And this one, please, give, give, give. This one. It’s just a few.Oh, you know what? Last time the artists were here, Mitchell, she introduced the song. Oh, I liked it so much! I listened to it many, many times at home, whenever, and I was so sleepy already, but I still wanted to listen, because that was the only time I could listen. It was very cool. I listened many times. And one of our brothers is in there also. That guy. I thought it was you and I asked, and it was really you. Cool. What made you go there and mix in there? There you go. Very good. Excellent. We’re going now. Something like, “Go vegan, go,” something. Can you begin? (“Go vegan, go vegan, go.”) Not like that! You have to really sing. I forgot the... “Go vegan, go.” (“Go vegan, go vegan, go.”) “Go vegan, go vegan, go.” “No meat, no dairy, no, no.” (“No meat, no dairy, no, no. Go vegan, go vegan, go.”) “Go vegan, go vegan, go.” (“No meat, no dairy, no, no.”) “No meat, no dairy, no, no.” OK, I am going. (Take care, Master.) I am going now. I really am going. I am not joking. I am going. You should know. (OK.) Thank you. Maybe like this, safer.Sometimes, when I meditate, things are revealed to me. Or there are some messages, and I don’t even know until later when I have time to check. See you later, guys. (See You later.) See you whenever, and you enjoy your life. Meditate. Be good. Very simple. Very simple. I told the ex-vice president of your country. I said, “Here, we live very simple,” because she asked me what we do. I said, “Here, we live very simple. Our life is very simple. Inside, we get enlightened and wisdom. Outside, we help others. That’s all.” Very simple. Inside, know yourself; outside, help other people. Isn’t that simple? (Yes.) Not just people, but help others. (Yes, Master.) It’s very simple. Is it simple? (Yes.) Inside, get to know yourself; (Yes.) outside, help others. That’s the only simple thing to do. Not complicated. I talk a lot, but it boils down only to that: inside, get to know ourselves; outside, help others. Very simple. Because you want to know yourself more, so you came here. Because you want to help others, so you help the homeless, the disaster victims, and Supreme Master TV. So, very simple life. Even I don’t need to teach anymore. Just like that. Inside, know yourself; outside, help others. Help other beings. Other beings, not just humans, but animals, insects.(The most merciful Master.)Hallo. Nice hat. The climate has really changed. I think we really have climate change. Because Taiwan (Formosa), today I looked at the weather, or maybe not today, but I look at the weather forecast for Supreme Master TV these few days, 27°C! You’re joking! We are nearly Christmas already. It’s supposed to be very cold. 27 degrees! (Celsius) Must be joking. This is winter, isn’t it? (Yes.) Christmas is coming soon. (Yes.) 27 degrees! (Celsius) I watched the forecast for a few places on Supreme Master TV. 27 degrees C in Taipei. That means it’s about the same here. My God. Must be joking. 27 degrees C. It’s like summer. Look at me in this dress. I don’t even feel cold. I feel hot actually. I’m going. I really have to go.Thank you, thank you. My car is here already, but I’ll go to the kitchen. I’m going to eat in the kitchen. I’ll eat with the working team. We don’t eat together every day, not every time. I thought I could not make it today. Because I fell asleep over there, I thought I would go home soon to rest. But I ended up staying for so long, and I still have to eat. How strange! (Hallo, Master.) Hallo. (Master is beautiful. You dress more and more beautifully.) SM Celestial clothes. (Master is so beautiful.) We designed this ourselves. (Hallo, Master.) It’s our own design. There’s new Celestial Jewelry. (Yes.) Are they on display? (Yes.) Anyone wears it? Let me have a look. (Elixir.) They didn’t give me any. All are for the disciples. They forgot me. (Hallo, Master.) Wow, so many Dharma guards. Wow! Look, it’s spectacular! Wow, very impressive. Thank you. Thank you very much.They won’t let me live in that cave. Wow, they wrote so many letters, saying this and that would happen if I live in it. I don’t want to live in it either. There is a new one. I don’t have to live in the old one. I wanted to repair it to serve as a memorial. But they said it can’t seem to be fixed. (Yes.) It’s dilapidated, not easy to fix. No one can go in. It’s dangerous. Because it’s too old, it can collapse any time. Hallo. (Hallo, Master.) Long time no see. (Hallo, Master.) Long time no see. Such a long queue, as if to see a celebrity. It makes me feel very important. (Master is very beautiful.) Thanks a lot. (Master is so beautiful.) Thank you. Thank you.

Use Our Wisdom, Part 9 of 10

So, the abbot said, “You can do more than you think.” Then he really could. Meaning the body is able to withstand more than what we think. We just pre-programmed ourselves into thinking that, “Oh, I need this, I need that. I need to sleep.” But if we have an interesting movie, sometimes we don’t sleep at all. Keep watching, watching, watching.Dates. Green dates, green color. Dates, right? And I bought just a small amount in a plastic bag. And I went there and offered to the abbot at that temple, and he shared it with Roshi Kapleau. Roshi is Japanese, it means “master,” master of Zen. Meaning he already became a teacher, he could teach Zen already, so, Roshi Kapleau. And he talked in Taipei before. One time, he came all the way from America. He wrote a book also. He went to Japan and studied Zen there. I will get to the point soon. You know my calendar by now. It makes it more interesting. Otherwise, I’d just tell you in two seconds, finished, nothing else and no punch line or no waiting.And then, I didn’t mean to sneak or anything. I just happened to be outside next to that window, outside of the window with other people, and they were eating inside at the table, and the abbot gave him these green dates. You eat it, it’s similar to an apple. It’s crunchy; it’s about this big only. Oh no, some are bigger, about this big. About like this and this big, and it’s crunchy. It tastes very nice. It depends on which one, of course, but mostly it tastes very nice. I like it very much. A long time I haven’t seen it, but if I see it, I will save one and show you, so you can drool, only one.And the abbot offered my dates, the green dates, to Roshi Kapleau and said, “Oh, this is precious. This is precious.” He didn’t know it was from me. I did not give it directly. I gave it only, of course, to his disciples and they gave it to him. And, just by the way, I sat there and saw him giving it to Roshi Kapleau and said, “Oh, this is precious. This is precious.” But I don’t know why he said that. Maybe he sensed something. He was also a very good practitioner, Fourth Level at that time. I let him go up already.And he said, “This is precious. This is precious.” He offered it and introduced that to him. But I wondered why he said that because this thing in Taiwan (Formosa) is nothing really precious. It’s nothing really precious, is it? And in season, it’s plentiful, and it’s pretty cheap because I even I could afford it out of my NT$500 per month. How much is that? NT$500. How much is that? ($15.) Ten? ($15.) Fifteen? Fifteen dollars. But I had to pay for the bus to go there, because I admired that abbot at that time. I was a nun, a freshman from precept school. So, I went there and then I accidentally saw him also, Roshi Kapleau. So, they ate it and then they seemed to really enjoy it. Oh, my heart felt so good, so good. Because they didn’t know it was me who gave it even. So, they did not know that I was so happy inside. Because the abbot, he was a big monk. Many people came and he had everything, all the offerings of the people, all the time. So, for him, this little green date was nothing. But he said, “Oh, this is precious.” He kept saying that while offering it to Roshi Kapleau. “Oh, this is precious. This is precious, precious.” He really meant it. His face and.... And then they ate, and they enjoyed it so much.The silent giver just secretly knew about their secret. Oh, I loved… I never forgot that feeling. Felt so good! Felt so good. Because I didn’t have a lot of money. And this thing for me, I thought this was nothing at all. Thus, I didn’t even directly give it to him because it was nothing. Just like you go out and buy a few grapes or something. Grapes are even more valuable. So, I felt already very embarrassed that I didn’t have much to give. So, I gave it to whomever. I said, “Ah, this… Yeah, you know.” Like I didn’t even say for whom or anything. I thought they would just put it together in a bunch of oranges, apples, mixed together for everybody. I did what I could. I didn’t want to come empty-handed and that’s all I could afford. But they sat there and ate it all with appreciation and gusto and love and said, “Precious, precious!” Repeated it again, again, and again. For this monk to say that. He’s very famous in Taiwan (Formosa). He was very famous. He’s gone already, gone to Heaven already. But for him to say that, and I admired him. He went to my resided temple at that time and lectured. Though I did not understand much, but I saw him as a very dignified monk, a true monk. And the way he looked. Oh, I really liked him so much. So, I went to visit his temple and brought my little recording machine that I had, to record his teachings. So that when I came home, I could have it translated for me.Because I love monks who are real, monks and nuns who are real, and even go out and preach to people. And the way he looked. Just like when you look at the picture of Baba Sawan Singh, you feel something, you feel He’s something. Not just any other Sikh gurus, but He has something. Immediately, the first time I saw, that’s how I felt. The photo only. He was gone then. So, I felt very good. But that’s not the end of the story. Remind me before the calendar gets too long.So, this Roshi Kapleau, he had been studying Zen with true Zen monks in Japan. He also wrote something very funny. American. He asked, “Why don’t you eat beef or eat meat?” American. I don’t know if at that time, he was vegetarian or not. Maybe later he was. So the monk in the temple, the Japanese monk, not the abbot but a simple monk, said, “We don’t eat meat because we cannot afford it.” So, he wrote it – he thought it was funny – in his book. I had it, the book. I don’t know how I had it, but I don’t know where (it is) anymore. Gone with the wind, anyway. I’ve traveled too much. I don’t have many things left. So, he studied with Zen monks in Japan, the famous Zen monks. I forgot his master’s name. And then he graduated. But in Japan, sometimes, they do retreats, of course, together, for one week or two weeks. And one time, they did it for two weeks. The first time he went there, they were doing it for two weeks. After two weeks, they still made him continue to sit longer. He said, “Oh! I cannot anymore! First time I sit so long already.” Then the master abbot said to him, “You are more capable than what you think. Just sit extra.” And he did!I want to say that our body is really a marvel. You can push it to the limit. Of course, we don’t always want to push. We want to enjoy a little nap here and there. Oh, my God, life is hard enough. But don’t nap too long. Don’t say, “Master said that.” You nap a lot already. Even during meditation, you nap a lot. Lucky you’re not in a Japanese temple. In Japan, the abbot or the assistant comes around with such a long, long, very long stick, flat, and they can reach you anywhere, like omnipresent, omnipotent, because it’s long. And mostly, the temple is not that big. So, even they can sit here, they see you’re napping, then they “puck.” Wake you up so rudely. But it’s not that painful. I’ve been hit. Once. But it’s not painful. It’s just the embarrassment. They want to emphasize that, “Hey, you cheated. You are not a good practitioner. Sleeping on the job! No good!” Seems like that. But it doesn’t hurt. They don’t do it to hurt you. But they have to do it correctly; otherwise, it might hurt you in a different way. So, it’s just on the shoulder. Tap one shoulder, two shoulders, that’s it. Once, and then you probably won’t dare sleep again because it makes a noise, and everybody looks at you and knows that you were sleeping. And for Zen monks, there’s a pride – a pride to sit straight non-stop and saying something like, “Moooooo.” Or maybe, “Ommmm.” Or maybe, “Whoooo am I?” Or, “I am whoooo?” I know who I am, but maybe you don’t know, so you keep asking yourself. Koan.And they’re very diligent. They also sit outside in the night. And then he did it. So, he wrote it in his book. He did not think he could make it because: “How can I? Sat already two weeks, how can I sit another week? For what? How can I? How can I? We’re so happy it ended, that we can go out, do what we want. Now the abbot makes us sit again.” So, the abbot said, “You can do more than you think.” Then he really could. Meaning the body is able to withstand more than what we think. We just pre-programmed ourselves into thinking that, “Oh, I need this, I need that. I need to sleep.” But if we have an interesting movie, sometimes we don’t sleep at all. Keep watching, watching, watching. But if it’s going to do kitchen chores or cleaning the bathroom, “Oh, I’m so tired and sleepy.” The reason I was sleepy was also because I didn’t do what I wanted to do. I wasn’t really enjoying preparing my dress or cleaning some of the things, etc. I did not really enjoy it. I do it for the job. Not that I’m not willing, it’s just that willing and enjoying are different things. Sometimes you do things that you don’t want to do, but you do it willingly because it’s for a good cause.So, another story about him is that, when he first came… Japan is cold in winter, believe me, it snows very high. You can see in one of my clips that I walked like this, with a big hat, (Yes.) flowing hat, flowing frill. Japan, near the wood cabin where I lived before. When he first came, it was maybe winter or something, so cold like that. So, they gave him these warm packs – you have it here sometimes – and told him to put it on his stomach, “Dantian,” the solar plexus, then it will warm the whole body. So he did that. And later, they discovered that he’d burned – the whole area burned, nasty burnt skin. They treated him but laughed, saying, “You idiot! Why did you put it directly on your skin? We all put it on the top of the cloth and we bind it.” But he didn’t say anything. He continued to meditate like that. Some funny stories that he told us. So that is his story, the story of Roshi Kapleau. He had students in America afterwards, and this abbot invited him to come. Because this abbot also had another temple in New York. He went Taiwan (Formosa), New York, Taiwan (Formosa), New York. He had a green card.And that’s where I cleaned toilets at the beginning and then was discovered by the group of people, of black American people. They were my first disciples in America. And later, some of the disciples of the abbot also wanted to follow me. I also taught them. Might as well, I already began, why not? And afterwards, I left, because they saw many people came to see me again and again, and it began making smoke. And also, I didn’t eat for a long time, for a while, so they began to get curious and asked me, and then blah, blah, blah, and then I taught them. And then the abbot also got wind of it.Correct? Heard about it; got wind of it. I don’t know where I learned that. I didn’t even use that before, ever. I don’t know where I even read this kind of thing. These people don’t talk like that. Often, no. I haven’t heard it before. It just comes out. Must be from you. Thank you. Your blessing. Yeah! Sometimes you sit with intelligent people, they rub off on you, or vice versa. Or you rub off on them, and you become stupid. Truly. No. If I stay too long with some people who don’t speak a lot of English and who are a little bit less than low IQ, then I become also kind of dull, and sometimes think a long time for one word, and talking but don’t make good sentences. Then I know it’s time to “sayonara” (goodbye) for a while. Otherwise, I become where, I don’t know where I go, become what.So, of course, then the master knew about it. And one of the sisters in the temple, she took care of the master. Maybe helping with clothes and something like that, she and her mother. Oh, she was very jealous because the abbot was very fond of me. And one time… I didn’t know much Chinese at that time, but I knew they were fighting about me. That’s the first time I heard the abbot’s loud voice and very serious face. Normally, when he taught, he didn’t smile a lot, but he had never raised his voice like that. Afterward, I left anyway.

Use Our Wisdom, Part 8 of 10

The body is a really funny thing. You can really push it. Sometimes I work very hard, I’m very tired. I want to sleep but I cannot, because of the deadline. Things you cannot say “tomorrow.” So, I just go out, do some whatever silly exercise, and come back and work again, or go drink something, eat something. Just take a break, a few minutes, and then it’s OK.First, they say, “You are vegetarian, right? You’re vegan, right?” And I say, “Yes.” “Ah, yes, I know. You, Supreme Master Ching Hai, right? Yes or no?” And then if I… I cannot say no, and I say, “Yes,” and then they ask again and again and again. “Really? It’s You? Yourself? Supreme Master Ching Hai self?” So I say to the assistant, “Tell her.” I’m embarrassed, man. I cannot just say, “Here! Me! Gorilla coming.” Keep asking ten times, I’m embarrassed. Everybody is looking and listening now. The whole restaurant knows. Before, they didn’t notice; they kept eating their own noodles, minding their own salad. Until they all make a big deal and take photos and whatnot, and then the whole restaurant begins.But at least I can escape quickly. I say, “Sorry, we have to go.” But not like in our restaurant, from the beginning to the end, I just sit there like a theater, for people to watch. And even if the customers did not know, did not notice, the disciples make them. “My Master’s here! Come and look! Blessing!” Oh, blessing. Can I even eat my (vegan) soup in peace and then blessing maybe later? How can I sit there and eat? I just feel shy. Everybody sees if the noodles fall out or not. Or whether or not it’s different when the Supreme Master Ching Hai eats the salad? “Does it stick on Her teeth or not? Because everybody else has that, does She? Because She is the Supreme Master, maybe She eats differently.”And then that’s it. That’s it. I can never finish my (vegan) noodles, because they keep talking. They come and ask questions. I cannot eat, I might get strangled inside, by answering. Then the noodles might strangle me inside, or choke. “Sorry, cannot talk. Water! Please, water!” Oh, man. So, in case you want to be a Master, you should be put off by now (by) all the stories I told you. Normally, if I go, if I eat alone, if they don’t make noise, then nobody’d notice. They also talk with their relatives and friends. They enjoy their noodles, eat their salad. They don’t look at me because so many customers come in and out; not everybody keeps staring at everybody – until they stare at me. And then they make noise, then invite everybody to come and look at me for blessing, you know that? Just a really, poor Master. Like a prisoner, can’t go anywhere.I am so lazy to go out because of that. I don’t know where to go because, mostly, I find a normal outside restaurant, vegan. But, of course, I would prefer to make business also for my people, but I can’t. I might as well never go, because when I go there, I cannot eat anything. She keeps talking and answering. Because all the customers also come, asking and telling me their own opinions about religion, and ask my own opinion about religion, which they don’t care anyway. They just want to talk. And then they tell me their stories, how religious they are, for example, and how they understand about the Diamond Sutra and Surangama Sutra, for example. They would tell me; they would lecture to me. And then I just have to sit there, thinking of my (vegan) soup, listening but not hearing anything. My mind is too occupied with the soup, my favorite soup, and it’s getting colder and colder by (the) minute.So, finally, I say, “OK, we have to go.” “You pack to go?” “No, no, sorry. It’s OK, we can eat at home. Thank you very much.” Go to a restaurant and go home to eat, and not my favorite soup. I don’t want to stay longer, because I’m just kind of feeling shy, feeling uncomfortable with so much attention and being lectured with so many sutras. And even other religious (people) also come and tell me things, or introduce me to another guru. “You will learn a lot from him. You don’t know, wow, he is really something, I’m telling You. I’m not telling a lie. You go and have a look. Go try, go try!” I don’t have enough time to try my own Guru already.I have to do a lot of work. Nobody thinks I have no time. Because I go eat at a restaurant, they think I do that every day, enjoying stuff. They don’t know I’ve been meditating for one week long already or two weeks and haven’t eaten this kind of soup for long, long, long, long, long years. Because not every Aulacese (Vietnamese) restaurant cooks the same food that I like, and different people cook differently. So, anyway, I give up. Even the normal people, normal restaurants, they would recognize, but at least they don’t put their heads over my soup and let me eat first, sometimes. So, sometimes we just buy it and go in the car and eat, enjoy freedom, fresh air. It’s not too bad. Seeing all the cars passing by and “Hallo!” “Hallo!” Because they saw we parked the car on the roadside, and three just nosing in the soup, so they would think, be curious a little bit. “Hallo?” So, we said, “Hallo.” “Hallo?” “Hallo.” It’s fun to eat on the street sometimes. You make a lot of friends. I am thinking to move to Taipei. What do you think? Can you afford it? (Great.) Great. Can you afford it? Yes? (Yes.) No. It’s maybe expensive. Taipei is expensive. And I don’t know if any hotel would like to bear you kind of people: laughing, clapping, crying for no reason, sitting all day, sleeping all night. Oh no, sitting all night, sleeping all day. Don’t move, or move, and go ga-ga when one person comes in, “Oh, Master!” Like that. Wake up all their customers.I don’t know if any hotel would like to have you. Do you own any hotels in Taipei? (Many of them. I think one initiate owns one, Master.) Yes? (I think one initiate.) Really? How many rooms? (But it’s a small one...) How many rooms? (I am not local. Sorry, Master.) How small? Where is he? Is he here, she/he here? Hotel owner? Raise hand. Taipei. No? Do you know? Does anyone in Taipei know about it? You know? (It’s around the Taipei railway station.) Do you know? (I only know that it is around the Taipei railway station. But it’s quite small. It only occupies one or two levels inside a building. It has very few rooms.) How many rooms? (Very few.) Is every room small? (Yes.) It’s Taipei. How can the rooms be big? But it’s better than nothing. We can divide it into many levels inside. Because we only sit.I said, inside we can make many levels, inside a room, because we only sit, we’re not doing anything. There are no activities, so can sit, and then another on top, another on top, or sit on the shoulders, save work. The big guys sit on the (Can sit on the bottom.) bottom, and then the smallest guys or skinny like me sit on top. We also practice kung fu. You get muscles, more and more every day. I’m sure you can do that, look at your tattoo. If you can bear all that, then you can bear us. Too many. Sometimes not enough room. Taipei is small. They have a center also, but I don’t think… How many people can fit in the Taipei Center at a time? How many people at a time or in a day? My God! Nobody lives in Taipei. (About one thousand people.) Only one thousand. My God. Here’s one thousand already. Today is less. Sometimes a lot of people come.Taipei has a center but only 1,000 people. You have to put your ear (phone) on because sometimes I speak Chinese, sometimes I speak Greek. One thousand. But for them, it’s 1,000. If we come in 1,000, where would they stay? Outside? They rent it, but it’s a very nice place. And they have food cooked inside. Very nice vegan stinky tofu. I ate there only once. But they also have vegan soup, Aulacese (Vietnamese) soup, and all kinds of stuff. It’s really wonderful.You girls need some new clothes or not? There’s a shop outside. Go select what you want, as many as you want, and I sign. OK? Just tell them to put it on Master’s account. It’s my shop. I heard, I’m not sure. You guys also. OK? After this, you can go out there shopping. Do go on a shopping spree. I’ll take you. OK? Maybe we can go now, in a while. You can buy what you want. There are long dresses for winter also. There are (vegan) cakes, (vegan) cookies, also, (vegan) sandwiches. I’m not sure how tasty it is because I have not tasted it. But clothes, if you need more, you can. OK? Some to change, you know for wash and wear. You guys also. Today, I wanted to tell them to tell you guys to come, but I completely forgot. One thing after another. You know? And it’s just so busy, busy. I didn’t sleep all night and the night before also. So much disturbance and pain. Yeah?And last night because of the dogs; I waited for them outside next to the gate. And then when they came back, thirsty and hungry, they ate. I didn’t have any food except some vegan bread. Even frozen bread but it’s not hard. So, I chopped and they ate like crazy. I said, “Don’t ever go out again. Next time you won’t have food.” I just say that, but they know I’m just joking. Even if I’m not joking, they don’t care. They know nothing will happen to them. I said, “How can I love these kinds of dogs like you? How can I?” And they came, licked my toes, saying sorry, stuff like that. And then you melt. And then it starts all over again the next night. Even last night, I was very tired. I said, “Tonight, maybe no dogs.” I must send them somewhere, to sleep in their own room because I was very tired. I wanted to sleep. I really was sleepy already. But then I said, “Oh no. Then they cannot see me on Sunday, all day and then maybe at night also.” Because when I come back, maybe I’ll need concentration to work. A lot of documents were waiting because in the morning, I didn’t do it. I was busy with other things.They came back late last night, about three o’clock. Then I had to feed them because I knew they were hungry. They’d been running for three hours and a half. Can you imagine? And thirsty, so I had to give them water, change the water, give them food, and then it’s already almost day. And then I had to go and pick up my clothes, see which one I’ll wear today, and then I had to fix it, etc. I didn’t sleep at all. And I thought I could not even come here. I was that tired! But when I’m here… Yeah, I’m telling you. The body is a really funny thing. You can really push it. Sometimes I work very hard, I’m very tired. I want to sleep but I cannot, because of the deadline. Things you cannot say “tomorrow.” So, I just go out, do some whatever silly exercise, and come back and work again, or go drink something, eat something. Just take a break, a few minutes, and then it’s OK. And this morning, after I took a shower… Because I’m coming to see you, I didn’t want to smell bad, because the whole week I did not have time to shower. Really like that. So, then I took a shower. After that, I said, “Oh no. No. No, no, no, no. No! Not now, not now, not now, not now. No!” And I splashed some cold water on my face. It’s still a “no, no, no, no, no.” I said, “What shall I do?” Today, there are some new Westerners and Asians coming, so I cannot not see them. And then my house has people coming to work. I cannot stay there either. Of course, I can; I shut all the windows and doors, draw the curtain, and just... I could. But I just said, “No, no, no, no, no!” And then, I don’t know, I was really tired. On the way here, I was still feeling sleepy. I thought I could come here and just sleep. I thought I might come here and just sleep and let you just look at me. Because you say you always want to see me, so here I am. Why not? But then, when I came here, I didn’t feel sleepy anymore. Your body is really something. You can push it.A long time ago, there was an American monk. His name was Kapleau, Roshi Kapleau. I’m not sure if he’s still alive or not. He came to Taipei, Taiwan (Formosa) to lecture before. And he went to a temple and I was there, visited that temple, and I also met him. At that time, I didn’t have money. I cleaned the temple and only (had) NT$500 per month, and you had to buy everything from that. That was in Taiwan (Formosa), not in America. In America, I didn’t even get anything. And I went to another temple and then I saw him there. So, I offered him whatever that money could buy, these dates, but Taiwanese (Formosan). It’s green; it’s so big. Dates. Green dates, green color. Dates, right?And I bought just a small amount in a bag. And I went there and offered to the abbot at that temple, and he shared it with Roshi Kapleau. Roshi is Japanese, it means “master,” master of Zen. Meaning he already became a teacher, he could teach Zen already, so, Roshi Kapleau. And he talked in Taipei before. One time, he came all the way from America. He wrote a book also. He went to Japan and studied Zen there. I will get to the point soon. You know my calendar by now. It makes it more interesting. Otherwise, I’d just tell you in two seconds, finished, nothing else and no punch line or no waiting.

Use Our Wisdom, Part 7 of 10

I said we have to make an excuse to go back to Taipei. One by one, we make friends with all these new people. Because the outsiders also, they are so very friendly but business-friendly. Also, they are happy that we are vegan also, ideal for them. They love the same ideal people, so they serve us, wow, special. Everything is so good, so good.I can’t stand the cold so I brought extra. But now there seems no need. It’s hot. We can have air con again! (Yeah!) I can talk again! Private stuff. Nowadays, it’s so convenient. OK, we meditate, and then at four o’clock, we go eat; and then at five o’clock, we go home; and at six o’clock, I go do my work. Is the food OK, guys? (Yes.) Now and then. Now and then is OK. At home, you eat better, for sure; don’t care. (Yes.) Now and then is OK. I have to eat that every day, so you cannot complain. You eat only once in a while. You come see Master for two days, three days. Even if it’s no good, you don’t complain. (Yes.) Because if you complain, I would think I should also. I’ll write a letter: “Every day, same food, my God! Every day similar food.” In…they cook better, more variety. Sometimes they have Spanish food; sometimes they have vegan curry, real Indian curry, cook vegan samosas. Sometimes we have vegan spring rolls, Aulacese (Vietnamese), real. Sometimes we have real this, real that. Sometimes we have real vegan sandwiches, do-it-yourself. (You make us hungry.) You’re hungry now? (After You describe it so good.) Oh, yeah? I am very good at describing. (Yes, yes.) That’s the only thing I’m good at, especially when I don’t have them. I do it especially, so that they feel bad that they don’t give me anything.When I was in Taipei… You know Taipei is a very good city for vegan food. I went to Taipei one time, for some reason, I forgot; of course, I go here and there sometimes. Ah, yeah. I know what. I went to the mountain to do a retreat. And then after the retreat, I said, “Oh, I feel like eating something. I don’t feel like going home, eating the same stuff yet, so let’s go treat ourselves to something. Look on the internet to see where, what. OK?” And then we went. They said nearby, otherwise, we’d have to take too long to drive. Nearby, there’s an Aulacese (Vietnamese) restaurant – not our disciples, not our initiates who made it, outside people. It was so good, so good! Even just a simple (vegan) noodle tasted so good. And that (vegan) sandwich they made, Aulacese (Vietnamese) Aulacese (Vietnamese) (vegan) bread, oh, my God, a long time, I didn’t have. Long time, I don’t know how many years or decades or centuries since I’d had this good food. So, I ate, ate, ate. And one of the drivers, he is specialized in eating. Whatever you put in front of him, no matter how much, he would finish it all for you. So, I said, “Wow! We should do this every day.” The way he ate made me hungry, eat more, enjoy. And I said, “I feel sorry for myself. Now we’ll go home and eat the same stuff again, almost the same every day.” Because they buy in a chunk. They buy big, so that it’s cheaper. So, they probably buy 100 watermelons, so we have to eat that for one month, for example. Cheaper, you know? Wholesale. Or 2000 kilograms of potatoes, then we have to eat that for another two months. It’s cheap. At least it’s clean water over there. And they buy big chunk, big boxes of cabbages, and then we have to demolish it in two, three months, or maybe one month minimum. And so on and so forth.So, I don’t even need to have magic power or go to the kitchen to check. I know what’s going to be on my table tonight. So, I said, “No, let’s go eat something good.” So, we went to eat that Aulacese (Vietnamese) food. So good, so good. And I said, “Is there some other food like this, similar foreigner food?” They said, “Oh, many, Master. We have even Mexican vegan.” Oh, to the “Mexi-mum.” “Mexi-mum” tortillas, “Mexi-mum” what? Tell me. ((Vegan) Tamales.) (Vegan) burrito in “Mexi-mal.” And then they even have an Italian restaurant, and Thai vegan, and Italian vegan, Mexican vegan. I said, “Wow! What am I doing in the New Land? These are all my faves!” Indian vegan and Mexican – oh, these are all my faves, all this lifetime, years. The problem is I have been around. I’ve traveled a lot before, even during marriage time, so I have tasted all kinds of good food. And now… stuck here.I really felt sorry for myself that day. I said we have to make an excuse to go back to Taipei. One by one, we make friends with all these new people. Because the outsiders also, they are so very friendly but business-friendly. Also, they are happy that we are vegan also, ideal for them. They love the same ideal people, so they serve us, wow, special. Everything is so good, so good. Because they know we are vegan. We said, “We are vegan, so make sure everything is vegan.” “Yeah, we have only vegan here.” Wonderful. No need to worry.The attendant brings food for me every day. Normally, they put it out there and then whenever I feel the time, I come out and get it and bring it to my table. So yesterday, I said, “I am sure it’s the same again like yesterday, right?” He said, “More or less, Master. Except the potato is boiled instead of fried,” or whatever, instead of boiled. Boiled whole instead of boil chopped. I said to him, “Hey, you think you miss …food or not? It’s better than here, right?” He said, “Yeah, yeah. A little bit more variety.” I said, “If you miss the food, you go, man. Go there to eat.” He said, “No, Master. It’s OK. You are here, I am here. I won’t go just for food.” I said, “Really? Wow, that’s touchy-feely. Oh, good, good, good.” I said, “Yeah, of course, if I can eat, you can, right?” He said, “OK, no problem.” He said, “Oh, for me, no problem.” For him. He said, “It doesn’t matter.” Meaning, it doesn’t matter, it’s equal to him. I don’t think he tells 100% truth, but it’s OK. He didn’t want to make me feel bad. I think I should move to Taipei. Why should I stay here? I can move all of you also. We’ll rent a hotel or something. You pay, I eat. (I invite You!) Yeah! (OK!) We are not many. We are about 100 people sometimes. We can book one whole hotel all year round. And today we go to Indian, tomorrow we go to Mexican, next day Italian, and the other day Aulacese (Vietnamese), and the other – Korean even! They have Korean vegan. Oh, all kinds!And other days, Sunday we go – we go where? Thai vegan. Wow! You’re right, I am hungry too. (Then You’ll make me into the real Happy Buddha.) It has an effect, I am telling you. You are happy already, no need to make exaggeration. We’re happy to see you like that already. No need to please us any further. We wish you to develop but not exaggerate, because then we have to carry you. We have to wheel you in the hall. We have some wheelchairs. Can do. I wheel my food because they put it on the tray, and then I put it on the wheeling table, because I cannot carry all that. Actually, they give a lot; the portion is a lot. Just that this is for a public kitchen. I sometimes cannot eat, so I return almost the same. I do think of these Aulacese (Vietnamese), and Mexican, and Korean, and Italian, and whatnot. What else? Thai and Indian. Oh, all kinds of my favorites! My God!The lucky Taipei people. And even then, not all of them are vegetarian or vegan. Shame! Don’t you think so? (Yes.) Shame on you, Taipei people. You should be vegan. It’s so convenient! I wish I could exchange places with them. Then I do nothing ‒ don’t have to be Master, don’t have to sit here, drooling about all kinds of food. Of course, they have Chinese vegan restaurants also. And to eat outside in an ordinary restaurant is a treat, I’m telling you.I don’t go to Loving Hut so often. Only once every two years, maybe. And (only) if I have to. Because if I go there, it’s work. It’s work to go to Loving Hut restaurants, my own Loving Hut restaurant to eat. I could even get overly praised, overly kneeled on the floor, and just making people look at me like weird stuff. “Why is She making people kneel?” I don’t make anybody kneel. They come, “Oh, Master!” Just come out of the kitchen, “Oh, Master!” and then on the floor. I feel sorry for the floor. Just drop like that, so heavy. One-hundred-pound person drops like that, or more even, sometimes 200 pounds, depends. Happy Buddhas. Happy lady Buddhas. And, OK, that’s not all. Everybody comes to put their head over my (vegan) soup. On my table, my food is here, “Master, bless me! Please!” Surely my soup won’t taste the same. Now you laugh? Why did it take so long? Translation. Wait until the Korean and Aulacese (Vietnamese) laugh, then we’re finished. You’ve finished laughing? There is more to come, but I forgot.They treat you equally. They don’t come and make trouble. Some know it, but they just say, and then I know. Then I don’t say anything. I pretend they don’t know, and they pretend they don’t know me, until I pay. After I pay, they say, “Where do You live?” “Are You the...?” I say, “Look the same, look similar, right?” They say, “You are not?” If I say I am, they don’t believe it. “You? Really? You? Yourself? It’s You? Your very self?” I say, “Yeah. You asked me, so I have to say the truth.” “Oh! Photograph, please!” And then the whole restaurant comes out. Well, at least they wait until I’ve enjoyed my dinner, and don’t put their head over my soup, or my salad, or whatnot. Sometimes they don’t know until the end. Somehow, they find out. When I come to pay and then they look close up. “Huh? Uh… Eeh…” So funny. Couldn’t speak, just, “Ah... eh... em... ah… You are Supreme Master Ching Hai, right? A vegetarian, right?”First, they say, “You are vegetarian, right? You’re vegan, right?” And I say, “Yes.” “Ah, yes, I know. You, Supreme Master Ching Hai, right? Yes or no?” And then if I… I cannot say no, and I say, “Yes,” and then they ask again and again and again. “Really? It’s You? Yourself? Supreme Master Ching Hai self?” So I say to the assistant, “Tell her.” I’m embarrassed, man. I cannot just say, “Here! Me! Gorilla coming.” Keep asking ten times, I’m embarrassed. Everybody is looking and listening now. The whole restaurant knows. Before, they didn’t notice; they kept eating their own noodles, minding their own salad. Until they all make a big deal and take photos and whatnot, and then the whole restaurant begins.

Use Our Wisdom, Part 6 of 10

Even a simple place doesn’t mean lousy, sloppy, or shabby. A simple place can be very beautiful, very cute, and lovely, and very warm, cozy, cozy. I like those. I think I’ll forget Lord (Mahavira) today. Sorry. My calendar is coming out. You stay here and you bless everybody while I talk, or you talk, and I just sit there. It would be nicer.So, we do really need wisdom. Not because you get initiation and are secure, and then you don’t have to grow up anymore. We do have to. People outside, when you hire them for something the disciples cannot do, the Taiwanese (Formosan) cannot do, they hire outside people. Oh, they’re absolutely polite. They even stayed late at night to finish just the roof, glass roof for me. They stayed overnight. They stayed until late at night to do it, and even then, it was their New Year. It’s the most important for them, but they stayed to do it. I did not ask, but they knew I needed it.I stayed on the roof, and then they put the filtered sunglass on top for me, and they stayed late. Of course, later I rewarded them with extra money. I said, “This is for your wife, your kids at home. When you get home, you say this is for New Year, so they don’t complain (about) why you stayed late, and they don’t doubt that maybe you stayed somewhere else. This money is the proof. And tell them they can call me, call my people here to prove that you were here all this time with all your workers and many other eyewitnesses.” He said, “No problem, we are working, we are not doing anything.” I said, “You know, I know, but the wife doesn’t know. We women are very, very careful about husbands and men. We never trust 100%. We always reserve something to prove, for fun. Just to have something to think about or to be on edge, to be alive, like, ‘We’re still here. Watch us. We’re sharp.’”And later, I gave much more extra money, not just the overtime. They didn’t want to take it. They respect me so much, even they’re not disciples. Respect. So, everybody was willing to stay and work. But I gave them extra money for overtime and then for New Year, for them and extra more for their family. I said, “This is for your wife. Tell her why you got this money, so that she doesn’t complain or she doesn’t feel hurt, that maybe you treated the work more importantly than your family, even on New Year’s Eve time. I really appreciate that you stayed. I did not expect it, but I really appreciate it so much that tonight I can stay here now, that I don’t have to stay in the room downstairs.”I don’t like the room. It’s just an empty roof, and then they put a tent for me, and I was so happy there. Really, I was reluctant to leave. Only after I discovered the cave, then I was not reluctant anymore. I moved immediately, like love at the first sight. But I was very pleased up there. I was so contented with a tent and the roof, empty everywhere. I was truly happy. During the retreat, I had to stay. I had to bear it until after the retreat, but I had to wear the shoes instead of walking bare feet like in the house, as I like. I wore the slippers just in case. And I didn’t touch the wood door, the poisonous door. I used cloth or something, or I did it with the elbow, with the cloth already on to avoid, in case, because I’m sensitive, I’m fragile, I’m small. I’m the smallest around here, am I not? Don’t you consider that? Without the high heels, you wouldn’t find me at all. “Where is Master? She disappeared!”One time, I was in France SMC center, and I always invited the Westerners, because it’s very small, and short-term Westerners come to my little hut behind the center. And I put vegan bread and even just vegan butter, they said, “Oh, yum, yum, yum.” I put anything, “Yum, yum, yum.” Whatever I gave, “Yum, yum!” They liked it; they were kind of, wow, so eager to get just a morsel. And then because it was in my place, I didn’t wear high heels; I just wore similar like this. If you were there or not, I don’t remember. If you don’t remember, you were not there. None of you. Imagine. You were there, you ate my (vegan) bread? (Yes.) OK. See that? One witness. And of course, so I wore sandals, slippers. And I wore this monk’s robe. And I was chopping (vegan) bread for everybody and putting some vegan mayonnaise or whatever I had that they prepared for me in the fridge. I said, “Bring more bread. Even just bread alone, they take it like gold.” Oh, my God. I’d never seen, just like hungry ghosts or something.They’d already eaten dinner, these were extra. But everybody’s like… Oh, my God, I thought I could open a shop and sell to disciples and I’d earn millions in no time, surely. They’d fight for it. Queuing outside, and making me more famous. And outsiders would even queue with them. “It must be good because a lot of people queuing.” They don’t know the disciples; they’d queue for anything as long as I am there. They’re just queuing, queuing. If I open a stinky tofu shop, oh, I’m sure you all will be standing there, drooling all day long. Come back again and again.So, I was chopping (vegan) bread, and some more people kept coming because this is a small place. It’s just like a small corridor and I had a little hut, maybe two by one and a half, something like that. Those storerooms that are ready-made, you buy and then you put there, and you just stay in. Wonderful! I love this kind of arrangement. I never liked any big building, bang, bang, boom, boom, cement. I don’t feel the difference between a big room and a small room. I’m small, luckily also. I enjoy this kind of quick build, simple. You live inside, you feel like, OK, you’ve accomplished something, just the way you like it. And then I chopped-chopped (vegan) bread and one of your sisters, her husband was there, and she was there, and she looked at me head to toe, toe to head again, and said, “Oh, without the high heels, You look so small!” I said, how can she guess? I said, “How can you guess? Didn’t you know this before? I’m glad you noticed now. Probably your wisdom eye opened.”Even a simple place doesn’t mean lousy, sloppy, or shabby. A simple place can be very beautiful, very cute, and lovely, and very warm, cozy, cozy. I like those. I am also busy. I don’t need to clean too big. That kind of house, you clean in “zoop,” one second, two the maximum. Very quickly. And you don’t need a lot of things, just a towel, a cleaning cloth; that’s it. You don’t need a lot of vacuum cleaner, that’s one thing less.Tell me, Nick. You look wise and old. I mean not old, wise. (Old, old, OK. I…) We’re in the same boat, don’t worry. Tell me. (I had a house with a wooden floor, and it was very, very old, but it was still new. And everybody would come in and say, “Why don’t you put the shellac or the shiny things that they do?”) Polishing it, right? (And I said, “No, I like it like that.” I would go with the vacuum cleaner, clean up, and I loved it. But everybody else wanted that shiny thing, not me.) Yeah, I know, I know. They have nothing else to do. (No. Yeah.) Just like if you’re just sniffling a little bit, ten people come up and tell you, “Take this, take that. Go to that doctor he’s good; that doctor, no, no. I know something, home remedy, take this.” And then they give you ten thousand medicines out of love. (And then some people said, “Oh, why don’t you tear it down and build a new one?”) Yeah, yeah, yeah. (I said, “No, no, I like this. I like simple.”)They told me like that with my old farmhouse in Spain. (I understand, in the same boat.) I didn’t even live there. I lived outside in a small hut I bought myself. It was too small actually, 1.60 (meter) and 1.90 (meter), but I fit. I even had a heater inside, a small television as well, and some hooks to hang my clothes. And I bought some small square things like they make it ready, a square box like this and you have two drawers in it. So, I bought about ten of them. I put them together, it became a bed. And I put a mattress or whatever I had on it, and that was wonderful. I had my clothes under, my tools, even a hammer and… Yeah! A hammer and a screwdriver, all kinds of stuff, you have no idea. I had all, it was organized.And then I was very happy, but they said, “This house…” Any worker who came to help me always advised me something. I said, “Does that cost me something also? Is that included in the price that you fix my pipe or not?” Just a joke.Anybody who came there always advised me, “Tear it down. Build a modern one.” I said, “I don’t even live in it, what for? Just leave it there, souvenir.” And if it becomes a ruin, then in Spain we have many ruins everywhere, so it just joins the club. I said, “What for do you take care of the things that you don’t need and unnecessary? It’s not even obliged (obligatory) by law.” But everybody who came, the guy who fixed the road a little bit, “You, that house is too old already.” I said, “It’s still livable. It’s still standing.” “You must build a new one. I know a builder, very good, very fast, cheap.” I said, “No need cheap or expensive. I just don’t need to.” Later, I was tired, so I said, “OK, OK. I’ll think about it maybe. If I want, I’ll call you. Give me your phone number quickly.” And then they were happy. “Call me. I’m always available for You.” My God.And sometimes I didn’t call them, they called me, “Hey, Your house, how about it now?” I said, “Nothing, it’s the same like before. You want to go have a look? Be welcome.” Oh, man, I’m telling you, people don’t understand. They busy themselves for nothing with too much trimming grass or manicuring plants. There are some manicured plants I’m going to remove also. Just like the fence, the plants they planted around the fence to keep it green or safe or whatever when they grow thicker together, but I don’t want it. If they grow very tall, and I don’t cut it, then it covers my view. If I let people cut it, I don’t feel good. I don’t want trees to be chopped and cut if truly not necessary.

Use Our Wisdom, Part 5 of 10

We truly need to have wisdom; otherwise, everything we do is a nuisance for others. The more we want to help, the more trouble we make. This is the thing about our world, it’s like that. We have a lot of good-intentioned people, truly it’s like that. But good intention is not good enough! We must have wisdom; we must have concentration. In the morning, it’s a drama to get them out of my house, or my cave or whatever. Don’t care what, just don’t want to go. And then after they (attendants) left, (the dogs) want to go out. Yeah! Ask me to take them out! Joking? They think I have nothing to do but dogs, nobody else but dogs, nothing to do but take care of…? (Dogs.) Dogs. God. And then talk like they understand me, everything. “Oh, Master, You work very hard day and night for everybody, for the animals. Thank You.” And all that. “But work for us, work for me, work for the dogs, it’s better! Don’t stress Yourself. Take a walk with us. What for You’re reading all this stuff? It’s so boring, paperwork. Why? Take a walk with us, fresh air, running, climb trees, or whatnot. Go drink the water in the lake, even though it looks dirty but never mind. It’s cool. It’s free.”I said, “I wish I could, really.” I apologized to them. I said, “I am not really a good dog caretaker. I don’t have enough time to walk you out and walk with you. I just work here, and then now and then, you come nudging, and then I pet, pet, and give you some (vegan) snacks, clean your mouth, clean the floor. That’s it. I’m so sorry. I really am sorry.” But I told them, “There are worse situations for dogs. So, for that, I can forgive myself, and you please forgive me.” They understand all that, but it’s the same, same drama all the time.So, you see, a long time ago, I told you about the kings. We should not envy the kings, or the presidents and prime ministers, whoever is in a high position. In the public eye, it’s not easy to behave. People mostly would criticize you from jealousy or just from too much expectation. Don’t think that that person… The president is also just a man; the prime minister is also just an elder woman. She has also her limit, etc. Especially if they eat meat and drink, then their body is not even as capable. Because if they are the head of the state, then they have to work with many people. They have no selection of who comes to work with them. And these helpers sometimes can bring them down. You know many examples, like America. Even good presidents can be brought down by their own helpers because of karma, their inescapable karma.Otherwise, do you think any president would like to have an affair with a girl who came to help? Nobody would want that. Nobody is that stupid. No man would be that stupid. I know you say men are stupid, but no man would be that stupid to be in such a position and to have an affair, knowing that all eyes are always on 24/7. It’s just inescapable. It corners you. The karma just corners you, and she is there for that only. Not on purpose in the beginning, not intentionally, but the karma arranged it so that she came or he came just for that purpose. So, you have nowhere to run. So, ordinary people have an even better life than the head of state or any famous person, truly. They are always in the eyes of the public. They always have to behave well, even if they don’t feel well. It is another kind of prison. A prison. It’s like that.Because everyone who comes, brings different karma and affects you, and because you are using them – they volunteer, they help you – you have to bear some of their karma as well. That’s the give and take. It’s fair like that and you cannot avoid it. Formerly, the kings were even worse off. Wow! We had no telephone, no television, no email, no way of communication, so the kings had to rely on thousands of all kinds of people in order to get the word across. And even then, if the feedback came too slowly, also sometimes, somebody’s head was already chopped off before the king had enough time to clear the verdict or the innocence of the man or the woman. It happened.There was a joke, I’m not sure if it’s a joke or not, but one time a king was playing chess with his official or something, and then suddenly he needed to go to the bathroom, and then his eunuch asked, “So, what to do now?” He asked his attendant or something to continue playing for him until he came back, so the attendant or eunuch asked, “Your Majesty, what to do with this now?” And then there, at the same time, another person came in and asked about the decision – what to do with one of the prisoners waiting to be chop-chopped. So, at that time, he was just in the bathroom and he talked out, he said, “Just kill. Just kill it.” And that’s it, that guy was done. And when he came out, “Oh, my God! No, we did not even hear what he had done or anything.” And later, the king knew that he was innocent, but it was too late; his head already went somewhere else, away from the body. Things like that.You know chess. They say, “Just kill.” When you play chess, you attack or you kill. They say, “You kill the king.” Checkmate, right? (Checkmate.) Checkmate. Something like that. I used to play. I forgot now. I couldn’t even say the word. A long time, I think three, four decades ago. I played for fun. I used to have time to even play chess. Imagine now, what do I do? Just can play with dogs and don’t even have time. And they have to go and force me to play.The kings are worse than any person on this planet. I think people did not understand that, so mostly they criticize…I’m not reading yet, so don’t need this one. I can open a glasses shop, eyeglasses shop. I have more at home. If I buy one, they say, “Oh, Master likes it, buy two, two more.” If I want one banana, I have one big bunch. Today, really today, they gave me a whole bunch of bananas. I haven’t finished the two they gave me yesterday. I made a mistake; my fault. One moment, I’ll tell you in a minute. Don’t worry. No secret kept from you, cannot. Looks OK. Looks OK.The day before yesterday, they gave me a couple of bananas, the ones that I like, so I ate one, and I made a mistake. I returned the food leftover and the empty container, but I put the banana peels in it. “That means Master liked it! She ate it! And that’s probably the last one, that’s why She threw it in to let us know.” Today, I got the whole big one. This big, ready, ripe to eat. How can one person eat so fast, even if I want to? It’s funny. In case you want to become a Master, you should know all these things. If you don’t like bananas, don’t ever mention it. And if you eat bananas, don’t return the peels to the kitchen, never, or you will get more than you bargained for. This is 100% more or no?I returned one peel only, banana peel, and I got 20 of them in one big…a big bunch of it, the whole thing. So, that’s the lesson for you, banana lesson; must remember if you want to be somebody. I guess if you’re a president, it’s also like that. If you’re a king, it’s also like that. If you want something, everybody goes out, buys like crazy. So, you can see in my house, my room may be small, but the shoes are everywhere. I have not even time… I did, I did have time to clean up many of them, throw away many already that I don’t need, I don’t want. And now, more are coming! More than what I threw out. It all keeps interest all the time. It’s like a bank. I’m like a banker. One banana peel becomes 20 whole bananas, in the whole… one bunch.You didn’t tell the girls to come? (Yes, they’re coming.) Coming also? Always the girls after? (They are here.) Where are they? (Over there.) Sit there already, where? Come here. Come here. Otherwise, you’ll feel neglected, yeah, and then your heart complains, and then I cannot sleep. Come, come, come. I forgot. OK?I have a thousand things and my dogs bother me, and my attendants bother me, and the trees bother me; they planted in the wrong place. That’s why I’m busy right now, to remove them. They planted so next to my house. Like in Hsihu, if there is no door, you cannot get inside the house because everywhere are trees; trees just so next to your window like this. And the trees are so nervous, they cannot grow bigger, because if they grow bigger, my window will be crushed. Here is the same. Plant trees everywhere. My God!They planted so many trees to make a fence. But when they grow big, then I cannot see any more outside; only the fence of the trees is next to me. And I don’t like that. We have so many trees already. And they pick a place where there is no sun at all. The sun runs on the other side of the mountain, so all day long, just some rays come in to one corner. Already no sun, but they said good feng shui. OK, I accept anything nowadays. I give in. I surrender because I can never win. I’m one person, and they are thousands. So many ideas, and the same with my shoes. I wish one day I could have more time to sort out the shoes again.Maybe we can sell them, including the glasses. And dresses that I don’t need. It’s not my taste and not my size. This one this morning, I had to even alter it a little bit, otherwise, it becomes like this. It looks like a mushroom. I’m already small and the upstairs big. I take out the padding, otherwise, I look like a muscleman. Macho, macho man. Not caveman, but muscleman. So now I have to ask them please remove many of them because they will grow very tall, and then they will cover everything. I like to see the slope, even a little bit, because that place is very small; both sides are mountain, hemmed in, and a little slope on both sides. So, I like to see that. I don’t like everything just square and sculptured and manicured grass and stuff like that. I’m not used to it. I don’t really like that. I like natural. And if I keep all these fences next to my window, the trees, I will never see them. And it will cover whatever little ray of sun that sneaks into my yard.And the little square yard is about this size, and they planted trees all over. And at the cave, they planted in front of my cave. The trees, they will grow like this, and the trunk will grow like this. And they planted right next to the wall of my cave, in front of my door, in front of my window. What’s the use of making a window when it’s going to be all covered up? And it’s not enough, they put crawling plants all over, hanging down now already and they’re going to invade everything. Where is their wisdom? My God. “Master loves trees!” Of course. Why not bring it all into my kitchen, my living room, my bathroom, my toilet? What’s the use of making a deck or the yard? Just plant all trees. “Master loves trees!” Like the banana story. You understand what I’m saying? And now I’m busy having to undo many things.But last time I came here to see you guys – not you guys, maybe other guys, other “you guys” – my car broke down on the highway. It happened the second time during my travels, no, third time maybe. So, I thought, OK, I had enough warning already. If I continue to travel, maybe my kids will never see me again, you know, kids – white hair, white beard, bent back.That’s why I have to bear it, but then I have to redo many things. Busy these days, a lot. And I’m not settled down yet; not unpacked all my things yet. These things were already here. We just wheeled the whole clothes rack in, so I just pick it out and wear it. Easy. But then again, I still had to fix it. I want to wear another one, it’s similar. So, I thought, “OK, I’ll repair the first one, otherwise, I keep picking and it takes too long.”We truly need to have wisdom; otherwise, everything we do is a nuisance for others. The more we want to help, the more trouble we make. This is the thing about our world, it’s like that. We have a lot of good-intentioned people, truly it’s like that. But good intention is not good enough! We must have wisdom; we must have concentration.

So, whatever I do, I feel like I’m just repaying their kindness, and I feel like God has given me this opportunity to repay their kindness, to spread love. That’s all. I never feel like I am doing any favor for anybody. And you should feel the same.Maybe she was a cat. No, she’s like a cat, (A lion.) and she climbs so fast. She is used to the wil

Use Our Wisdom, Part 3 of 10

So, every day you have to pray and thank all beings for the meal you eat. Thank God, of course, above all. And thank all involved in the meal you eat. Thank the farmers who toil, rain and shine to take care of the vegetables or the food that comes onto your table.I thought, my God, it should not happen like this, especially in America! We, in many countries, have the idea that America is a very rich country, very secure for everyone, but it isn’t always like that. When it comes to recession time, they call it or something like that, people just lose jobs, and they don’t have enough money even to take care of any other things, except for themselves. And the whole family sometimes moves to some charitable shelter or something. And once you’ve lost the job, once you’ve lost your house, you have no address. You cannot go find a job if you don’t have a mailing address. One thing leads to another.Many educated people, high-paid persons before, succumb to this kind of situation. And they end up becoming homeless or staying in some shelter temporarily. And nowadays, some organizations, they lend the addresses to give the homeless people a kind of stable place, so that they can apply for jobs. When you go to an interview, the company, the staff manager that interviews you, he doesn’t immediately say, “Hey, we’ll hire you.” Now or tomorrow, “We’ll call you.” So, you need a phone. Or, “We’ll mail you.” Etc., etc. Or they will ask more questions, and then you have to write to them, and then they will answer you through whatever address. If you don’t have an address, that means you are nobody in the society anymore, no matter what. And then that’s the situation. Everything is sometimes so sad in this world. So sad.Yesterday, I saw a little moth, very little one. And she died because of too much wind at one time, and then she just died on the floor. And I thought she was still alive. I was trying to get the glass and the paper to scoop her in, but she didn’t move. So, I put her on the tree, and she didn’t move again. So I said, “Oh my. You’re dead? So sorry about that. Your life is so short and then you had to die just like that already.” I felt it was so unfair for this moth. I felt so sorry for her. It just touched me somehow, in my heart, that everything in this world is so cruel, so unkind. So, the little helpless and harmless and fragile little moth like that, she couldn’t even enjoy her short life in peace. And that’s not to talk about if some other animals don’t eat her before, even.And then sometimes, if we cook something or eat something, the insects come and then you have to remove them, outside. And I also feel very bad. I feel like, my God, even just to eat something, you have to fight with other beings. Not to talk about many insects die or get injured during the farming season, or off-season, on-season, after, before season. If we don’t think about it, we can survive. If we do, we don’t want to live anymore. Such a hassle to keep this body going. Even simple already, not like very luxurious or anything.So, every day you have to pray and thank all beings for the meal you eat. Thank God, of course, above all. And thank all involved in the meal you eat. Thank the farmers who toil, rain and shine to take care of the vegetables or the food that comes onto your table. And thank the other people: the transport company, the drivers, the ones who harvested it, the ones who washed it, made it ready and put it in a nice container or bag for you to take home. Everything in this world, we owe someone. We use anything at all, we owe everyone. Even tiny bees, insects, they are doing their job so that we…Just stretch it out more. Yeah, on that side. Yeah, yeah, that’s the east side. We have a south side, north side, who cares. Do it. You don’t have a chair? Are you leaning on a chair? Yes? (No.) (No, I’m not.) No, you don’t have? (I have my cushion.) Just a cushion. (Yes.) You should have a little chair. Anybody have a chair? Can somebody go get me a chair for him, please? He is not talking. I am talking. Can somebody go out, get me a chair from the shop? Please. Chair for him. (I have a chair.) Never mind. Never mind. You sit, because when you go out now, you’ll miss me. I think. (Thank You, Master.) I am not sure. But, no. OK, OK. That one. Yeah. It’s more comfy. You’re a driver, aren’t you? Not, not, OK, also fine, fine. Look at that, how much love is going on. (Thank You, Master.) Be careful. (Thank You, Master.) That’s good. All right, enough already. How many chairs? For him also, good. Anybody else who needs a chair? We empty the shop outside for you. Sit. You’re a driver, right? (Yes.) So, you drive all day, sit all day already, now come here, have to sit again. So sorry. Such is life. You know, it’s not fair, anything, I told you already, just before. Nothing is fair in this world.And don’t think he eats a lot, so he grows so big. No, not necessarily. It’s the thyroid gland sometimes. Yeah, when it functions slow, then people get chubby. Or too much fat they put in their hamburger, even vegan burgers, because they like it. And some people just get fat without any reason. And some people eat so much, I’m telling you, and they are like a toothpick. It’s true, right? You know, right? (Yes.) So, don’t criticize anybody; it’s just the way it is. Karma. (Happy Buddha.) Happy Buddha. You look like Maitreya. You need it a little bit bigger though, to compare with Him; that’s just the disciple size. He is like this, the stomach protruding out.So, we created so many different karmas like that. And even nowadays, after initiation, still have. Each one has different karma. And you must meditate well, in order to minimize a little bit, so Master can help you. Because if Master gives you too much power, you also cannot bear. If you clean the karma too quickly, you will have problems, or you will die.Different people create different karma. I have people who help me, but they create different karma also. Or the people who come here with pure intentions to meditate and to see the Master and to elevate themselves, but they also bring different karma. Like a few days ago, I suddenly had such a terrible pain, so I checked and I knew who was coming, and there were two people who were very sick, two Aulacese (Vietnamese) people. I don’t want to say who. Never mind, you know. If you’re very sick, you should not come here, not come here with the intention of wanting Master to cure you. There are medicines; there are doctors. We should not always rely on Master for everything. My body is also very fragile like yours, maybe even more fragile sometimes. I don’t look it, but the body is the body. And I work so hard, sometimes I really abuse this vehicle. Just like if you drive your car and you don’t really take care of it all the time: you don’t change the oil, you don’t have time, or you give cheaper gasoline and make him run, poor car, etc, etc. And you forget to pump in the air, or you don’t have time if you are very busy, and the car is also feeling its age. Or when the car is older, it doesn’t go as fast as before, or you shouldn’t go as fast as before; many parts of the car have to be constantly maintained or changed. The body is the same. But we neglect our body too badly. I myself, truly. But I truly sometimes have no choice with the inside work pressing and the outside work pressing.And the dogs, they don’t understand anything about my job, about my inside, outside. They say they know, “You work day and night for the world.” They told me that, but they don’t care – always come sissy-sassy, want pet, want hugs want (vegan) snacks, want to stick around, don’t want to go to their room. They fought tooth and nail with my new assistants just to stay behind; they don’t want to go out of the gate. They fight with them. Oh really, so terrible. I feel so sorry for the new assistants. They harass them no end. I said, “Go, now!” And then, “OK, OK. OK! OK! I’m going!” And then looking back, “I’m really going?” I said, “You’re going!” They play their game, you know, dogs. I’m telling you.And then escape and all that stuff. Only the mother – she is the wild one because she was born in the wild and lived in the wild before she saw me. Before, nobody could ever touch her. Nobody could go near her even. Only after I got her babies, then she came knocking at my door. And a couple of …a week or ten days, I already could carry her on my shoulder, walking around, showing off to the neighbors. “I got her. See? Caught her!” Because she became like a puppy. She is also one puppy, tough life. She was so young and got pregnant because they’re wild dogs. And she became like one of the puppies. She is the most sissy-sassy of all. I said, “What? You’re a mom, you know that? This is your babies’ stuff, not yours.” But she doesn’t care. She doesn’t really realize that she is older than her babies, just one year plus older; it doesn’t make any difference to her. Afterward, she behaved just like a puppy. Just because she was so used to living in the open, so now and then, she tries to escape, and she is so good at escaping. Before, she could jump. There are fences like that, these kinds of fences? She puts her four paws on it, climbs up, up, up. Two seconds, she’s out. No, not even two seconds, one second. She’s so fast, so fast.That’s why I could never catch her before. I didn’t want her to go out, not because I’m controlling, but I don’t want her to go out eating garbage, and then bring back bad germs and something for the little babies. Before, I scolded her a lot. But she tried, and then she opened windows, and she bit the whole wall to try to get out. She bit the whole wall down. I don’t know how she didn’t die because these are painted. Even if you breathe in or you taste a little bit, you would feel some effect. No, nothing. This girl, she’s invincible. The whole body was all white – the nose, all the hairs was all white, and the ear hairs was all white, the tongue white too – nothing happened to her! I was worried sick, but nothing happened.The moment I’m not careful, she runs. If I open the door, she runs under our legs and out, in… not in 60 seconds, not even six seconds. Six nanoseconds. She’s so fast, so fast because she was so skinny before. Now she’s more chubby but still skinny, so escapes so quick. She climbs so fast and jumps out. And sometimes, she sees some tree nearby, and she uses that tree, climbs up the tree and then near the fence, then she’s up, goes comes out like that. Oh, my God! This girl, incredible! And she uses magic to break even the iron chain, just to get out.(She was a cat before because she likes to climb.) Maybe she was a cat. No, she’s like a cat, (A lion.) and she climbs so fast. She is used to the wild life. She is street smart, so smart. Before, when we were in Thailand, we fenced everywhere but we could never catch her. I hired everybody. And then one time, luckily, we used the big basket that you use for leaves in the garden. And then one Korean guy, looked like he had affinity with her, he came in and just caught her like that. But two days later, she was gone again, etc. Never mind, don’t talk about her. And last night, I was so tired looking for her. Everybody was looking, and to everybody else I said, “You go home and sleep. I’ll wait for her. She will come back.” I just don’t know when, that’s all. She’ll come back. They always come back.

Because building something big is disturbing the earth a lot and sacrifices many trees and plants and insects, and maybe birds or squirrels, their area. They’ve been living in there. And you never know when they have their nests or something, and babies just born, or their eggs. It’s not a very nice thing for them.There was a former vice president of Taiwan (Formosa), she came to visit me again just a few days ago. No, last week. I think it was Saturday last week. And then we talked and then she told me many things and I told her things. And she said people should do this, do that. Other organizations, they’re planning to build this, build that, like temple stuff. I said, “We don’t build anything anymore. These things already exist, so we use them.” Because building something big is disturbing the earth a lot and sacrifices many trees and plants and insects, and maybe birds or squirrels, their area. They’ve been living in there. And you never know when they have their nests or something, and babies just born, or their eggs. It’s not a very nice thing for them. I don’t really like building anything. It costs too much manpower, time, finance, and the earth. It costs something to the environment. I don’t always feel very comfortable building anything. That’s why whenever I find a cave or whatever’s simple, I like to stay there. I feel happier that way, that I don’t disturb anyone at all. But your brothers and sisters tell me, “It’s the twenty-first century already. You don’t have to live in a cave anymore, Master.” I said, “Why? I’m a cavewoman. Everybody knows that since a long time already. I got used to it.” But there’s a cave here. It has already served its time. It’s getting dangerous now to stay there, so they dug me out. But still, I don’t really feel like moving, but I don’t want everyone to get worried about my safety. So, it’s sensible to move out. Twenty-first century.We had 20 many centuries, not just 21. Twenty-one is counted since the Lord Jesus Christ only. Before that, we existed a long, long, long time. Many civilizations came and went. Many Masters came and went, either anonymously or recorded in history. So many. In the beginning, we came here from the Brahman Heavens. That was the beginning of humankind. We could fly. We had magical power. We could communicate telepathically without ears. We could see thousands of miles away. And then we began to taste this and that. And then we ate more solid food, and then we became more solid. That’s why we cannot fly. And then we even began to eat raw meat, kill other beings, lesser beings, to eat. And then, after that, we discovered fire and then we ate more because it maybe tasted better. And then we discovered other plants, combined with the meat, and so on and so forth. And then our body became coarser and coarser, and heavier and heavier, and our mind also became clouded. Our soul, because it’s connected with the mind and the body, also felt dragged down. And that’s the result of us: the way we look, the way we behave right now. And then, because we liked to eat more and more, we began to fight with each other for food. And then we needed houses because the body became weaker. The immune system – used to be more refined, more holy, more wholesome – became weaker and weaker with each generation, with each day that passed, because we ate too many different things and animals and stuff.And then we had to fight with each other for survival. And then we needed governments to regulate the laws that make the rules. And then we needed the police to keep the rules. And then the ones who don’t understand the rules are thrown in prison and get angry, come out and revolt, etc. And the more and more karma all the time. So, even now after initiation, we still have the karma. Even though the maya’s gone, the karma is already there, it cannot disentangle from the body because it’s like tearing your flesh. To squeeze out the blood or try to squeeze out the blood out of your flesh, something like that. It would be horribly painful. Physically speaking or even spiritually speaking, it’s impossible.You can stretch out, baby. Stretch it out or I’ll show you how. I cannot. Stretch it out. What is it? (From Your attendant.) Oh, let me think. I’ll give him the key. I forgot. I forgot that they came back, so we locked the house. Can you please give it to him, to the person who gave you the note? (OK.) Thank you. Tell him, “Not one key missing.” Just joking. I can trust them. If they’d like to take my dress, then I will have an excuse not to wear it anymore. It would be nice. That’s the only valuable thing there. I don’t think they want to. And then they will talk like the sisters.Sometimes they come to my house, they help me to clean the house when I don’t have a lot of time, or when I need the muscle to move some furniture. And then they wear the gown and the gloves and all that, and the hats, you know, those kind of hats for cooking, so the hair doesn’t fall out. And they also wear special shoes to come in the house, so I don’t have to clean again. And they wear gloves, so I don’t have to smell their sweat. There are two different people; they smell different. One person is already unbearable. Men, they smell stronger than women. I don’t know why. What’s wrong? What did you eat? What did you guys eat? (They sweat.) They sweat? You don’t sweat? Sure, they work harder than women. Breadwinner and stuff. And then we criticize, like I did last week. I said, “The smell put me off.” But they have to sweat, they work harder. And don’t ever try to smell their socks. You will faint. Normally, [when] they come to my house, they wear slippers to come in but their socks are still on. And then even if they work right at the entrance, I still smell it. I said, “Did you change your socks today?” He said, “Oh, sorry, Master. No time. Urgent to come here. Can You smell from there, Master?” I said, “Of course!” Why do you think I live alone? Single still. They sweat so easily. So, they wear the gown, like overalls, so they don’t lean on my sofa or whatever, or their socks might touch something. Sometimes they forgot to bring their slippers, so I said, “OK, never mind. Just go in with socks. Don’t go in with the dirty shoes, then it’s OK.” Because the shoes are sometimes muddy. They go to the public toilet and stuff like that. So they went in with their socks. Three days after, I still smelled it! If I have no time to clean, then I smell it for three days. It’s not so strong but it’s there, and I know it is because it’s not mine. Anyway, last week I was just being a little bit bad joker. Forgive me, guys?I do love you. Love and like are different things. So, I cannot just love and like at the same time. Or sometimes I can like but not love. Very difficult to love and like together. I don’t know why. Don’t ask me. That’s why I was wondering how you stay married so long. I really admire you so much. I really, truly mean it. I really mean it. (Karma.) Karma. Yeah. Possible. And not just those who stay because of children or because of together banking account or mortgage the same house or it’s a pity to leave this fancy car. It’s not that, but those who love, really love, love, love, love so much. And then one time, one of your brothers asked me, “Master, You still feel like You love somebody?” I said, “What? I don’t know what love is.” Really, I really don’t. The way he asked about love, I don’t know that love anymore.I love everyone, everything, every being, but I don’t know that kind of love. That’s very narrow, actually. The moment you say you love somebody and he loves you back, it begins creeping in, this possessiveness and anxiety and jealousy. “Does he really love me? He loves me. He loves me not.” “She loves me. She loves me not. Don’t know. Not sure.” “Why is he coming home late today? He loves me. He goes out. He goes with somebody. He doesn’t go with somebody. He sits somewhere in the coffee [shop] alone, maybe because we fought last night. Oh, man!” No end. There is no end to all these stories. It begins like that, even if you don’t want to. Even the most loving couple, sometimes it’s creeping in your mind, just to make trouble.The mind makes trouble. And woe to the man if he just side looks at another woman. Even if she’s not pretty, you think she is. That is the problem. And even if another man doesn’t look all that attractive, but the husband thinks, “Why is she looking at him? Or she just pretends to look in that direction, but she’s looking at him, isn’t she?” And you think he is attractive. In your mind, he is. Maybe she doesn’t care. Many times, I talked to people outside, the married couples; they really value each other. Not that everybody just goes out and are always sidetracked, and looking at other women, or desiring the other person. It’s not really like that. They really like and love each other, and it’s a happy thing. It’s a very good thing. In this life, it’s very lonely. If you don’t have some good neighbors with you, or friends who come and go in your house, you will feel very lonely to stay in a flat all by yourself. And then you come out, and then somebody begins talking to you, and then you feel like, “Oh, this person may be my company, my life companion.” Stuff like that. The mind keeps saying things. So, I know why on Sundays you come here. Maybe nobody comes and talks to you. No need, right? Now you have a lot of friends. So, come back to the story.And after we became heavier and heavier, our minds became duller and duller, and all the senses became more real, more real and then they began to control us. Like, the nose loves to smell something pleasant; the mouth wants to eat something nice. The more you eat, the more you want, and then slowly, slowly, we eat a lot. And then we know much less than we did before. And we have less capability than we did before. I mean, real capability.Before, whatever we wanted, we just wanted it, it would come. And now, we can pray, and we can work hard for two, three years, then we can get what we want, with a mortgage even. Thank you so much! And then work hard again to pay interest. And if you lose your job, yeah, yeah, you know. In some countries, you could become homeless just like that, overnight. And you lose your house, you lose everything because everything is on loan, or at least half loan, not paid completely.When I was in America, I saw many people, they advertised in the newspaper or something, “Please come take my house if you can afford to pay so-much, so-much per month. Please come, it’s free for you. Just continue to pay, I cannot afford.” Is that true? Right, brothers? (Yes.) I felt so sour in my heart. My God, they worked so hard. They paid halfway or two-thirds already, but if they could not continue, then the bank took over or whomever. I thought, my God, it should not happen like this, especially in America! We, in many countries, have the idea that America is a very rich country, very secure for everyone, but it isn’t always like that. When it comes to recession time, they call it or something like that, people just lose jobs, and they don’t have enough money even to take care of any other things, except for themselves. And the whole family sometimes moves to some charitable shelter or something. And once you’ve lost the job, once you’ve lost your house, you have no address. You cannot go find a job if you don’t have a mailing address. One thing leads to another.

Use Our Wisdom, Part 1 of 10

Just for the mind; otherwise, why? There is no need for language. Just like initiation, no need for language. Whatever we perceive by the soul is the best. And it’s the True Teaching.Hallo, everybody. (Hallo, Master.) Not bad. Not bad, still able to get up. Because my dog ran away last night, I waited all night long for her to come back. So, I was a little worried. I was afraid that she would go out to fight with other dogs, but she came home eventually. That’s why I didn’t get enough rest. Now my eyes are still half open only. I cannot see things when I wear this, but it’s all right. Are you OK? (OK.) You can also sit like this. Are boys getting fewer? Great. (Hallo, Master.) (Thank You, Master, for coming to see us.) To see you. (Hallo, Master.) To see whom? I come to see them. Why would I come to see you? Why do I have to see you? Can’t I see them? Yeah. It’s funny. My shoe’s broken again. One. Hey. Hiya. Howdy. (Hallo, Master.) Hallo. Thank you. Amitabha.What’s new? Is there any good news? Have you prepared your questions? (Yes.) Have you? (Yes. Yes.) Come here to read them. If you don’t read them, I will lecture you. There’re many things to talk about. A lot of things since my arrival. Oh! This is high enough. It’s also correct to crack some jokes. Wonderful. Have you just arrived? I’ve been ready for quite a while. Forget it. Where is the person collecting questions? Where is the question collector? Hallo? (Master, they’re with the audio team.) OK. Hurry up and bring the questions over here. What team? (They’re with the audio team and will read from there.) Are they going to read from there? (Yes.) Why do they read from there but not from here? OK. Go ahead and read. This is very good if I don’t like to show myself. If I am tired and sleepy. Very good here. Just the right size. I think each one of you would find it very convenient.Go ahead and read. (I read a Buddhist sutra that said an ancient Buddha, called the Infinite Light Buddha, will come again to save beings. One time, when I attended Master’s lecture at the Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall, I saw golden light emanating from Master’s whole body. It moved me to tears. I knew that I’d found the ancient Buddha that Shakyamuni Buddha had mentioned. Thank You, Master.) How can she be so sure about it? Was it written on my body? Was “the ancient Buddha” written on my body? I’m very modern. What do you mean by “ancient” Buddha? This and that all look alike. They all copy me. Very beautiful. OK. Congratulations. Congratulations. Then the more you go to Master’s lectures, the more you’ll see ancient Buddhas. But I’m very modern. Where does “old” come from? Well, I do have “mold” but nothing more. Yes, next one, please. Is there only one? (There’s another one.) The first one, stand up. The one that saw the ancient Buddha. Congratulations.And the second one. What is it? (Hallo, Master.) OK. (Three years ago, my husband saw Master coming to my house with the sun. He told me, “Master is here”. And he passed away the next day. When he passed away, I saw a great lotus flower coming to take him. Thank You, Master.) You’re welcome. Why are you so happy about your husband passing away? You didn’t sound sad at all. But it’s also right. He’s been liberated, and so are you. He passed away happily, and you are happy to stay. Spiritual practitioners are truly different. Any more? Any other questions?Yeah, don’t look. It’s always the same. When I come here, it’s always crying on one side. But at home, nothing happens, nothing. Oh yeah, sometimes it happens. Like Thursday or Friday, there were 12 people coming, and I got such a terrible stomach pain. Two of the Aulacese (Vietnamese) are sick, that’s why. Are you getting better already, the Aulacese (Vietnamese)? The two sick Aulacese (Vietnamese), are you better? If you’re sick, you should not come here. Number one, you are uncomfortable, cannot sit very long because it’s not a very luxurious place. Not like a holiday place. Number two, if you’re seriously sick, you might infect other people. That’s not fair. They came here to enjoy, to feel better, not to get sickness from you. Even I, got it last time. I mean, when I was in France, one of the sisters, she got the flu and then she passed it on to me, as a loving gift. I said, “Thank you so much.” It’s just in the air. After I told her, then she wore the mask, but she didn’t wear it before. When you sit together, you touch this and that, and sometimes you meditate very well and then you just “achoo” on the neighbor.Next one, please. (No more.) Huh? (There’re only two.) No more questions? (No.) Really? (Yes.) You’re all enlightened. Wow! Then what am I sitting here for? I speak only for those ignorant people. Since you’re all so enlightened, I am going home to sleep. (No.) Huh? What do you mean “no”? Are you controlling my life? Can’t I leave? OK. Then what do I do? Sit here, wait for mealtime? It’s another four and a half hours then. Wow! How interesting. Is it OK? It is not too high? Can you see my beautiful stomach then? (Yes.) Since you want to see everything, you want to know everything, you want to hear everything, so it’s a pity there’s a cover.So really, no questions? Wow! So, you make me work again today? I was thinking, if you ask questions, then I can keep talking also to answer your innermost quest. If I keep talking all the time… Sometimes also, during my talk, your questions are also being answered, right? Just that if you have something in your heart, you should ask. I know why you don’t want to ask, because you’re scared. Very good. You learn fast. Because if we sit here and listen to nonsense all the time, we’re fed up also. It’s OK if Master speaks nonsense but nobody else can. Did I ever say any nonsense stuff? A lot, huh? (No.) Anyway, just for the mind. Just for the mind; otherwise, why? There is no need for language. Just like initiation, no need for language. Whatever we perceive by the soul is the best. And it’s the True Teaching. Like when you do Quan Yin (meditating on the inner Heavenly Sound), you see the Voice, you hear the (inner Heavenly) Sound. No. You see the (inner Heavenly) Sound and you hear the (inner Heavenly) Light. Then you just automatically became wiser, more enlightened. It takes too long for my liking, but every day, you see a little bit, a little bit, a little bit. And then you can call yourself “enlightened saint” somehow. Some people boast that they already became Buddha. All right then. I have to read you a story.Sometimes your questions can inspire me to talk more and for everyone else. But since you’re so scared, then keep quiet. Don’t be scared. Everyone is different. There was somebody who asked nonsense, then he got what he deserved, but if you don’t ask nonsense, then you just ask. The worst is that you just go home, that’s all. Nothing ever happens to you. Not like in the old times, when you said some nonsense to the king, and he might invite your head to go somewhere else, apart from your… far away from your body. But here, we are very benevolent. What’s wrong with going home? I don’t see anything wrong. And if you don’t ever have to come here again, you save money. Or you feel sorry for the air company or something? Your husband or your wife will feel very happy. “He is not going; we save money. He takes me on a holiday to Hawaii or something. Nice.” If somebody took me to Hawaii or somewhere now, I’d feel very happy, happy. “Yeah. yeah, yeah! I am going.”Sometimes, I also want to escape, like my dog yesterday, last night. She escapes sometimes. Because in the new place, they did not make the fence very secure, not enough, and she always can find a little hole somewhere that we overlooked. And we put stones there, big concrete blocks. She somehow still can get away. And there is her little daughter, the skinniest one, she eats also, but she just doesn’t get fat. I mean, not round like the other dogs. Even her mother used to be like that, just skinny, skin and bones. You could count the ribs. And now she’s plump and round, and very beautiful. And she still continues, that little one.But she is very, very protective, so whenever the mother escapes, she also has to escape with her. I asked her, “Why do you have to do that? It’s good enough that the mother is stupid, why do you also become stupid?” She said, “No, I want to protect her because she went out alone. God knows what.” I said, “Yeah, she should know that. You should tell her not to go, not you follow her.” That girl, she is like a boy, like a tomboy – always jumpy, very curious about things, very adventurous, and very protective. So, last night they came, and then they just hung around, eating (vegan) snacks and stuff, and then after they finished, they just went around the garden, looking for places to dig and to go out. We blocked all the holes possible already. She still found a little hole somewhere and then she dug it bigger. And here they didn’t put cement underneath the fence, so she can dig because the earth is new, is soft, so she digs anytime.So, it made me worry so much. I couldn’t rest, I couldn’t meditate. I had to stay next to the gate, wait for them to come back, so that I could open the door for them to come in their room or come in my room. Wow! Last night they went very far, three and a half hours long. Normally, one hour they come back, but last night was very long. I worried they went out, maybe fighting with other dogs or other animals, stuff like that. Because the last one, not last one, but before last, she injured her eye inside not the lid but the inside of the eye – and it took several weeks to heal with the cone hat, wearing the cone hat. Like an ice cream cone. But this one is uncomfortable.Oh, it’s hot today, no? (Yes.) Can we have a little air con, please? Or somebody come fan me like the king in the old times. Both sides fanning. I guess I have to do everything myself, even zip my own dress, wear my own shoes. And it’s broken now. It didn’t look broken before; it looked new. It’s new! When I began to step right here on the threshold of the hall, immediately it broke. It’s laughing now, at me. You know why I have to wear high heels and dress up and all this? No? Why? (For people outside.) For people outside? (I mean, for the public.) Why? Not for people inside? Why? (I think it’s for the people, so they have an affinity with Your clothing or… Like people look at You, remind them of something.) Remind them of something? (Yes. That they’ve seen in their dream or vision.) Really? I don’t think so. They’d rather criticize. “What kind of monk who wears (clothes) like that?” The reason was that it’s in the contract, so that I have to spend more time and wearing things that I don’t really want to wear. Make a lot more time, more inconvenience, you know what I mean? Not like this, so simple. I tried before, but it didn’t work, so I have to go back to the contract. That’s what it is. Even now that maya is gone, but the contract is already signed. All the Heavens had to be witnesses and everything. So, we continue maybe a few more decades, and then I will take a very special dress and then finish, you know the one about two meters long, and maybe about this wide, and square. And when they close the lid, that’s it. You’re free. No. You’re free before that.It doesn’t work? That’s hot. (No.) It’s red? It’s red. OK. Now it’ cold. Earlier it was red, now it’s green That’s why it’s loud now. Okay, Thank you. What happened? Don’t hear very well? Yes! Thank you.Thank you, all of you. I wanted to thank you before I forgot. I want to thank you for working for the world through Supreme Master Television or with Supreme Master Television, doing hosting, doing scriptwriting or technical assisting, and all kinds of stuff. And some even help find new channels and sustain the channels. It’s very good, you’re getting there, you’re getting there. Pretty cool. Getting better now, grown up.Today, I was coming out here, and there were two guys driving me here – one driver and one just standing by in case the other driver drank too much water or something. And so I told them, “You know what? Today, I told them to ask questions, so I don’t have to work because otherwise, I always have to go out and read stories. I feel like I’m a kindergarten teacher. They just don’t grow up; they like stories and stuff.” Actually, all you have to do is very simple.

Heaven Is Here and Now, Part 4 of 4

Just you feel beautiful inside, I guess, because there’s nothing really. The Ganges you can have everywhere, not just that mountain. Nothing’s new in India, in the Himalayas. I just felt good there, felt so free. So free and so light. Lighthearted!In Dharamshala also, you can rent a room very cheaply, also a mud house. But I did not really enjoy that m

Heaven Is Here and Now, Part 3 of 4

I miss that place. If I have a chance, I’ll go back there again. It’s just that mud house and the water nearby and the Ganges down there. If you don’t have any responsibility and pressure, no matter what you eat, it tastes like Heaven. And you don’t even care what you eat, as long as it’s vegan, of course. And in Rishikesh for example, or many holy places, they don’t sell alcohol, eggs, meat, nothing. It’s forbidden. So, if you live there, you’re sure you just eat vegan. You don’t need to ask. People also sell vegan all the time. Even a small vendor on the street, it’s all vegan, nothing else. I would’ve loved to stay there forever. Now when I think about it, I still feel very nostalgic.(About ten, fifteen years back, some masters in Rishikesh, they used to promote veganism. Like I was a child when I read the pamphlet promoting veganism, that we shouldn’t…) Where? (In Rishikesh.) In Rishikesh? (Yes, Master.) No need to promote! Everybody sells vegan only. (Yes, Master.) Oh, you mean for the visitors. (For the visitors, yes, and…) You did? You’ve gone there? (Yes, Master.) I didn’t see you. I love that place, but I didn’t live in downtown. I lived on a higher mountain, only mud houses and natural water. But next to the Ganges, that’s what I loved. You just walk down one, two, or three minutes – not really three minutes, I walked slow – and then you can immerse yourself. Even in summer the water is so cool, it’s so cool. It melted from the ice at the top, always melted ice coming down, very cool.This is the same as that one you have. Thank you. Share it with the kitchen, OK? This is for the kitchen. Take it inside. Apple juice? Again? Thanks a lot. Another apple juice. Told you. Whatever I say, come more.From all the places I went in India, I miss Rishikesh the most because everything good happened there. And I lived in a small mud hut, but I loved it so much. Every day, I went to sleep on the roof. And there were always some people who joined me, a couple of people, Westerners, around me. And then I had natural water coming out to wash my clothes, to cook. I cooked very little, but it was still good water. And then I’d go down in the Ganges to do ablutions and alms, put the clothes on the rocks to dry. One, two hours only and then you can wear it. I miss that place. If I have a chance, I’ll go back there again. It’s just that mud house and the water nearby and the Ganges down there. Not even three minutes. It’s not long; it’s just right on the banks of the river. It’s just very high, so you have to go down. It’s a little bit sloppy, but a very good road. Just a dirt road, but very good to go.I also stayed in Dharamshala in the forest, also in a mud house. It’s more civilized there; a lot of people, a lot of Westerners, a lot of monks and nuns all the time. But I like Rishikesh more. I almost drowned there, and I still like it. Because I went into the middle of the Ganges to meditate and that day it rained from the upper level. The water covered all the stones. I couldn’t see any stepping-stones, but somehow I came home. Now I can’t remember how I did it. Because when the water is high, you don’t see anything. When it’s not high, you can choose the stones. Just step and go out.I met one yogi. He lived in the cave on the Ganges, and he seemed a holy man. So, I came and paid homage to him. I offered a melon. That’s all I could afford at that time. Melon’s very cheap. In India, everything’s cheap. My clothes also, even tailor-made, very cheap, and just cotton. I chose the cheapest cotton, it was still beautiful. They made it and it fit me, two pairs.And then I met this yogi, and he was an old man. He sat in the cave and there were some disciples surrounding him. So, I said to him, “Master, it’s not comfortable that you live here like this because the wind is blowing and the sand is blowing everywhere. Don’t you feel uncomfortable? Don’t you feel it’s too harsh?” He said, “No. There are many people who live in more harsh conditions than I.” Wow, so I shut up. He was right, he was right. I knew that, in India. But what I meant was that a master should not endure so much. That’s what I meant. He was old already, he should be somewhere comfortable, being looked after. That’s what I meant. But he couldn’t have cared less, so I couldn’t have cared less.And then I asked him, “Oh, Master, what do you advise me to do for enlightenment?” He didn’t say a lot, but his English was perfect. He told me, “Go there. There’s a little island in the middle there,” middle of the Ganges River. Ganges River is big. It’s not like this. “Go there, meditate.” I said, “Aye-aye!” I didn’t say, “Aye-aye” but I said, “Yes.” So I meditated. I asked him, “How long?” He said, “One week and then see how you go.”I told you this story already. Right? When did I tell you? Can’t remember when. Oh, in the BMD (Between Master & Disciples). (Long back.) No, I just heard it somewhere. (In Los Angeles in 1997, I think.) I thought I just heard it somewhere a few days ago. No? No? How come I remember as if I just tell you now? Maybe I told somebody.So, I went there and meditated six days. One more day left, and my ex-husband came. I don’t know how he found me in such a desolated area. It’s a mountain; it’s not like downtown where all the gurus and all the bhiksu come. No! Just, three or four divided mud houses. Very cheap. And there was water running from the mountain behind my house. I washed my clothes and stuff. The water was very clean. I don’t know how it was so clean, like crystal. I washed my house, drink, and that. And then he came. I was washing my clothes. He came right behind me, “Oh!” And then I said, “Oh!” “Oh, you came! Hallo!” and all that. “How did you find me?” He said he had this magic. He showed me my photo. That was his magic. He went to every post office, every stop from Delhi, all the way to Rishikesh. (Wow!) And I lived on the top of a mountain, not right on top, where just a few people lived there.It’s not where the temples and ashrams were, no. Only two or three people together. Not together, each one had a room. And then... OK. Wow! I don’t remember what I said to him, or anything. I said, “I have to hurry now. Can you hang around? I’ll come back soon. I have to do one more day meditation.” And then when I came back, he was gone.There was one Chinese from Canada. He just came before my ex-husband came. He came and he said he had nowhere to stay. “Then you stay here in my room. I don’t stay anyway and the couch I don’t sleep. I sleep upstairs with a sleeping bag on, so you’re welcome to stay here.” Because he said his girlfriend was coming and he was looking for a room to rent. I said, “In a few days, there’ll be a room empty next to me. You can settle here meanwhile.” So, I left him there, his luggage and his backpack, living there, and I left. Meanwhile, my husband came. I left. I went to meditate. It was far, you had to walk maybe three kilometers from where my house was, walk to where I meditated on a little island in the middle.The Master didn’t say anything, just said, “Go meditate” as if I knew everything already. He didn’t say how to meditate, nothing. He didn’t talk a lot, except to tell me, “Don’t touch that girl because she’s a Brahmin.” I was unworthy. Brahmin, you don’t touch them, except if you’re a Brahmin too, where you have to wear something to prove it, a thread. I don’t know. Women don’t wear this, right? (Men wear it.) Men wear it. So how do I prove that I’m a woman Brahmin? Women cannot be Brahmin, right? (Mostly it’s because of the male, it is the family that’s considered Brahmin. If the male is a Brahmin, then the family is considered Brahmin. But women, I don’t remember if they have any distinguishing…) Nobody asked for ID or… anyway. Because the little girl went to the Ganges, wanted to fetch some water with a bucket and I tried to help her, and she screamed at me. So, the Master said, “Don’t touch. They’re Brahmin.” I said, “OK, sorry.” And then I meditated, blah blah.I went to meditate, and when I came back, it was dark already. He was gone. Only that so-called boyfriend was left behind. I said, “Where is my husband?” “He left!” “Why did he leave? He came to find me. Why? He just came, he didn’t even talk to me a lot, and he left already? Why? And that camera is mine. Why is it here?” He probably left it for me. He probably thought that was my boyfriend. Nothing was further from the truth, right? I did not have a boyfriend to begin with, let alone Chinese. And a raw Chinese, very raw. He cheated. He ate raw, but he ate chapatti also. Chapatti is not raw. He didn’t eat raw chapatti. He ate cooked chapatti. And the rest was raw. Fine.I said, “What did he say?” “He didn’t say much. He said he’s going back to Germany. He gave me his camera.” I said, “What? That camera I gave to him for a birthday. Why did he give to you? What did you say to him? What did you say to him?” I began to get angry. He said, “Nothing. He asked me if I live here, I said yes.” He said yes, he lived there. “And you sleep here?” “Yeah, I sleep.” Only one bed. (Oh.) That was my room. When he wasn’t there, I showed my ex-husband that it was my room. And the boy came back and said it was his room.Coincidence! Even if you write one book, you cannot explain yourself. So, I said, “Oh. OK. I understand. How long (ago) did he leave?” “Just now!” So, I ran down the mountain. I didn’t have a lot of money, but I hired a coach. Normally, you go together with ten people at least on a horse-carriage coach because it’s cheaper. Nobody hired the whole coach. I said, “I want this coach.” He said, “Expensive! Money, money! No?” I said, “Yeah. Money, money OK!” I paid it. I said, “I pay here, I pay here.” I couldn’t really afford it that much, but never mind. I thought if I don’t have samosas for a few days, that’ll be OK.So, I ran to the bus station and the bus ticket man said, “Just left. Just now!” Like in the movies! I arrived, he left, just like that! And I had no means to catch up. Not with my horse carriage, no matter how much money-money I paid, it wouldn’t catch up. The bus was gone!Oh, man! But I really liked that place so much. I don’t know why I liked it so much. But then he came back. I wrote him a telegram. It’s another thing I could not afford. Every day, I calculated how much money I must use. But if I ate one more samosa, then the next day, I could not. But I was very happy there. I was very happy. If I had to choose somewhere to live, I’d go back there again. It seemed so free. The house was dirt cheap; you pay rent, it’s just like a gift. Like a gift.It was nothing much. And people are so friendly. I even had like a chiropractor punching my body for free. I never knew what a chiropractor was until that day. But he was very gentle, not like one of those chiropractors in China. Oh my God! All my body screamed out. He was very gentle. I said, “I don’t have any money.” He said, “Never mind, it’s free for you.” He twisted me around, punched me around, but it felt very comfortable. He is a doctor chiropractor. I don’t know what the heck he was doing in such a lonely mountain like that and renting a room and had a bed there ready for punching people. I didn’t inquire too much anymore after that. And then he was just a neighbor. He did his thing; I did my thing. I never buddy-buddied anybody. But people buddied me. Washed my hands, punched my body, massaged, braided my hair, stuff like that. Very friendly people, even visitors. He is from the Philippines, he is not Indian. He went there, I don’t know, maybe on holiday or something. I never asked. If you had a free massage already, better run quick in case he changed his mind. You have no money to pay, no? No, he was very nice. I really liked that place. I have no idea why. It’s my favorite of all the Indian places.In Dharamshala also, you can rent a room very cheaply, also a mud house. But I did not really enjoy that much, like in Rishikesh. Maybe the ambiance, the atmosphere. Everybody who went there had to be vegan. They had no choice. What for would you go there promoting veganism? They had no choice.

Heaven Is Here and Now, Part 2 of 4

00:29:13

Heaven Is Here and Now, Part 2 of 4

Life is short, anyway. You do what you can to be worthy of a human’s life. It’s all illusion anyway. But it's funny how illusion can even make people really suffer. This is a game here. It's a game; cannot avoid it. We are ascetic, but for necessity. Right? (Yes.) But that one, I think I can go without. The bicycling uphill, I think I can go without. I don’t know if it’s good for anybody, but I can go without. It depends on your life viewpoint, whether or not something is ascetic, or not. Right? (Yes.) For me, I don’t feel ascetic. I have a big house! Joking. That was just after the dog came. Because they built that house, but I never lived in it. In the beginning only, and then after the fire incident, I just said “sayonara” (goodbye) to the house. I don’t dare to live there anymore. Not only that, but after that, we have caves already. So, I didn’t have to stay in the house.Actually, I could stay in the house, but I didn’t feel like it. I didn’t feel like it at all. Sometimes, I come in just to meet somebody there, like an office because my cave is too small. I don’t know, my cave is smaller than all of yours. I don’t know why, how did they do it? Two meters square is already very small. They shortened it a little bit, just to make sure everybody knows that’s Master’s cave – small size. It wasn’t necessary.I often don’t meet people in the cave, except some private secretary or something. Sometimes, in the middle of the night, we don’t go there and just meet in my cave. Two people can sit, three, no. So, I never really stayed in that house. But now the dogs came and I don’t have enough room in the cave for all the dogs. They like to be around me, so they hang around and I’m working. Very convenient! Anybody wants to come to my office must go through the dogs first. They screen many out. “Ow-ow-ow-ow-out! Out, out, out! Out!” “No, no, no, no!” “Go, go! Go, go, go, go!” And English also, “Goodbye!”People think I have a lot of money. I don’t see any. It probably goes from one door to another so quick. I don’t even know how much we have. We give out quickly. A little bit here, a little bit there every day, almost every week. Right? Hardly two days go by without any contributions. It’s not a lot, but every drop of water comes in and then it fills the cup, or drains the cup, depends.Not only that, but because we are very frugal, right? (Yes.) Very frugal we are. (Yes.) When I go out, I wear some nice clothes, but that’s it. When I’m at home, I don’t wear a lot. I mean, I don’t need a lot of clothes. A couple is enough. It’s just so many. Everybody buys something. The attendants before, they bought all kinds of sizes. They didn’t consider what I look like if I wear them. Either very tight, like sardines in a tin or very big. And they’re just hanging in there. Last winter, I had a couple of hours; I sorted them all out but still some more left. They buy all kinds of shoes, all sizes, that fit elephants and horses. And then I don’t even wear them. And then they just go bad. They grow old and broken by themselves. Nobody touched them; they’re broken by themselves. They grow old. I did not think I was old until I see all the shoes. When I saw all the shoes, I know how old they are already, how long they have been there, then I know how old I probably have been, added on over the years.I’m sorry we don’t have many. We could have more of us, but I cannot always find more people. Most of them, they have karma outside. They don’t have ascetic karma like us. Actually, we are very frugal. Otherwise, all the money I earn would have been gone already before they even touched any poor or needy people. Because if we build houses for every (one) of us and luxury style, one car each, the insurance money will eat us up, and the mortgage or whatever. We’re OK. Right? We are better than… We’re better off than lots of people, truly. Children who don’t have food to eat, they become only bones, especially in the African kind of countries. Oh my God, you just shed tears when you see all that. We are very good – too good. I really think we’re too good. We have everything – in the cave.I used to love my cave so much, because whenever I entered, I felt so comfortable. I looked outside, it’s so wide. And my cave seems very big to me. It’s my size, but I feel it’s very big inside, a lot of space somehow. But my dog Good Love doesn’t like it. He doesn’t like caves, He doesn’t like huts, He doesn’t like anything like that. He likes a house. Sofa – must have.In Italy, we have one house, but I didn't live inside the house. I felt it was too big. If I lived there, it was too much cleaning and taking care. So, I have a very little house like those storeroom house, storehouses, almost as big as a cave, a little bit taller because of the roof. I bought that kind of house; very simple, and put it a little bit outside to stay in, and I brought my dog. It’s enough room for Him, but He didn't like. So He kept running inside the house. He ran and He looked back at me like, “Come hither. Come along, not that type of house!” He kept looking at me and He ran and looked and ran. And I said, “If you want, you can go in there. I don't need to go there.”And now and then He went inside, staying on the sofa, sleeping there alone with air con and all. My little house, about two meters long, one and a half meters wide, is enough for Him and me, but He didn't like it. I know there's no air con, but I bought specially for Him this kind of stone, marble. I forgot how to say that. Marble! A piece of marble, bigger than His size. I put it on the corner for Him, that's very cool. No! Doesn't like! I said, “Sit down!” He sat. OK, He sat. And then I looked outside the window; when I came back, no more! When I looked back, no more! Good Love was gone! And He went inside the house and lay on the sofa in front of the air con. What kind of dog? And eats Aulacese (Vietnamese) (vegan) spring rolls and stuff like that. Normal (vegan) food He doesn’t eat. (Vegan) dog food – He looks at it, sniff-sniff and then leaves it there. He eats it when He's hungry though. But if He has a (vegan) spring roll or Aulacese (Vietnamese) vegan spring roll, or something like that, then He gobbles it quick.He’s so big and beautiful. Whenever I say, “I don't understand why your ex-caretaker owner just did not keep you,” and He says, “Hm!” He says like that, “Hm!” All the time. “Hm! Don’t mention those people!” I think one time, He said it in front of the camera, on the BMD (Between Master and Disciples) in France. And everybody laughed so much, because He kind of punctuated that sentence, “Hm!” Like that.You guys enjoy? Good food? (Yes. Delicious. Thank You, Master.) You should come every weekend, every weekend different. Wow. Wow. The Westerner likes it. You can eat any more? Here? Boys, they eat more. Come, I put a little bit of magi sauce. Have more have a kick, a little kick. Boys eat a lot to grow up. They don't ever grow up, not if they can avoid. Everybody a little bit. Ah you cut, this one also. Did you have this before? Have right, everybody, a little bit. Symbolic of love. The people, are you OK there? Are you OK? (Yes, thank You.) If you want, you can come over. Just very tight, a little bit tight and don't sit as comfortable as you are over there with table. We here are more ascetic, we’re caveman, caveman is like this. Where was it? Mosquito, go!I'm thinking. I know you work very hard. Don't think I don't know. At least you think you work very hard, that I know. At least you think you work hard. Thinking is not real. Anyway, if you work hard, so what? Better than have no job, no? (Yes.) Nowadays, a lot of unemployed people, yeah? (Yes.) Even if I pay you a holy peanut, it’s better than nothing. It’s still holy, right? (Yes.) You are OK. You have everything you need, right? (Yes.) You’re much better than me then, when I was a so-called disciple. I hardly had anything to eat. It’s the Westerner, they eat like buffalo, and they left me nothing. I was busy working for the Guru. When I came out, nothing was left, except a big mountain of washing to do. They gave me that every day, washing.Are you OK there? What’s this? These two look the same, right? It's not, right? Apple juice. I don't need apple juice. Here, if you want it. With a risk! Don't drink too much apple juice. Don't eat too many apples. The story about Eve and Adam with the apple, it has some truth in it. It’s a seductive kind of fruit. It’s not the only one, of course, but I don't want to list the whole thing here, and then you have nothing to eat. Just eat less. It's good like this, we eat on Sundays, so I sometimes have a chance to tell you something that you don't want to hear, normally. With the food, it’s easy to swallow down. I know we work hard, but we work hard for a good cause. Whatever time you can sleep, you feel good in your heart. Nothing’s better than what you're doing. That's what I think. But it doesn't matter what I think. Right? You think differently. Right? Who cares? Yeah. Never mind. Life is short, anyway. You do what you can to be worthy of a human’s life. It’s all illusion anyway. But it's funny how illusion can even make people really suffer. This is a game here. It's a game; cannot avoid it. Why is it so sweet? I added a lot of Maggi, but it’s still very sweet. My favorite. I like it, but it’s a little too sweet. I am probably too full. I’m starting to criticize. How nice it would’ve been if I’d had these things to eat in India. I said when I was in India, if I’d had such things to eat... Wow! I would’ve felt like I didn’t need any more Guru, I’m in Heaven already. “Heaven is here and now.” I would’ve announced like that. But I didn’t care, really. Most happy time for me was living along the Ganges. Either in a cave or in a mud house, I felt happy, very happy.

Prayers do help (Yes.) when you’re sincere. All the Saints are all around all the time. (Yes, Master.) They never left us. It’s just we leave Them. We forget. We forget the holy life, we forget Their energy, we forget that They’re helping us all the time. A lot of people pray for many things, it happens, it works.(Master is beautiful.) This is my

Deci, nu te poţi ascunde mereu. Orice este în interiorul nostru se manifestă la exterior, pe capul nostru sau în jurul întregului corp. Unele persoane ne pot vedea aura, ne pot citi aura, ei pot să ştie ce suntem în interior. Deci, trebuie să ne asigurăm că suntem puri în interior. Intenţia noastră trebuie să fie nobilă.

Cum ar fi mulți ani, sau mulți zece ani, sau cu multe sute de ani în urmă, sau multe sute de ani în viitor. (Uau. Da.) Unii oameni îți pot citi mintea.

Deci, chiar dacă ei închid, închid, și testează, și tot felul de lucruri, dar numărul pacienților infectați continuă să crească. (Da,

El a văzut îngeri zburând în jurul lui. (Uau.) Cinci dintre ei când el i-a văzut. Și președintele Trump are îngeri mereu alături de el. ( Bună, Maestră. ) Ești bine? (Da.) Te simți mai bine azi? (Da, mă simt mai bine. Mulțumesc.) Ești sigură? Desigur. Ești puțin sensibilă, nu-i așa? (Da.) Ai grijă de tine. (Da, Maestră.) Altfel totul este bine? (Da, Maestră. Vă mulțumesc.
