The True Christ Power, Part 9 of 9, May 30: Questions and Answers, May 30, 1999

“As you sow, so shall you reap.” If we cause suffering to any beings in any form, directly or indirectly, we can never be completely feeling guiltless and, therefore, we cannot completely be happy. (What is the reason that, for some people, life goes all right, and for some people, they get all of a sudden injured in a traffic accident, or they take too much medication, or they get hospitalized or to be put into a mental institute, maybe? What is the reason that for some people, life goes all right, and some people obvious end up in trouble, hurt?)There are two reasons for things that happen in our lives. The first reason is that “as you sow, so shall you reap” – if we did something wrong, this wrong thing will return to us. And another reason is before we were born into this world, we have chosen certain events to happen to us so that we can experience and progress more in our spiritual practice. (In Finnish first, I have to translate. My name is Ebenezer. You mentioned that in order to get to a certain spiritual level, we should have less things to think of. My question is: in the world we live, we really have to be hardworking to survive. This has taken all the time we have. How then do we survive, thinking of spiritual growth in this sense? End of question.)I don't ask you to leave anything. I just ask you to leave the coarse energies of animal-people’ meat so that you can practice to see God better. (In Finnish. May I ask when shall we return to the place where we have been? That means that, before we came here, where were we?)It's up to you. You can return now after this lecture or you can return any other time. (To where? Where were we before this time?) To the Kingdom of God, to where you came from. (Next question. Please explain the goal and the process of Your system. Please explain about the Quan Yin Method.)Quan Yin is just the Chinese word for listening to the Word of God inside us. I started in Taiwan (Formosa), so it's the name, it's just become like... continued, but otherwise, in the Western terms, we can say “contemplation of the Word on God.” And there is no verbal system; it's just (that) the real power of God will re-open within yourself in silence. The verbal instruction is just to tell you what not to do, how to distinguish between the God and the fake, the devil who fakes Hirm, and which kind of signal, like what kind of Light, what kind of Sound you will hear, in which different mansions of God, so that you'll know what level you are in. (Next question in Finnish. Many people despise animal-people and just abuse them or utilize them, exploit them, consider them of lesser value and torture them. I love animal-people and I wish You would show in Your speech, if possible, the value of the animal-people.)Yes, that's why I ask you, I advise people to be vegan, to extend our love to lesser brothers and sisters who are more defenseless, who are weaker than us. In the Bible, God said that, “I made all the animal-people to be your friends and your helpers.” Hes did not tell us to eat them. (Next question in Finnish. What do You think of angels and spiritual leaders?)Angels, they are our friends. The ones who know God have so many angels surrounding them, to help them. And spiritual leaders, you mean the invisible ones? (I don't know, he didn't say.) OK, the visible ones are the ones who teach us how to go back to God, if they have enough High-level of attainment themselves. And the invisible ones are the ones who have left this physical body or the ones who have not come to this physical body. If they are good spiritual beings, they also help us in our daily meditation. Next one, please. (What is enlightenment?) This you cannot talk, you have to experience. Just stay after. Let me know, then I will show you. Come one, quick. (A Finnish, question. Is there a contradiction between Your explanation of the birth of the world, or when the world came into existence, and the scientific explanation of how the world came about? How the world was created.) Ah, the creation. (Creation, OK.) The scientists only know the physical aspect. Because they study only material science; they have not studied spiritual science. That's why when a person dies, everything is still there, but he doesn't function – because the spiritual being has left the material being. (Last question, in Finnish. Can I be happy with God even if I am not a vegetarian?)Well, the answer, you know it yourself: “As you sow, so shall you reap.” If we cause suffering to any beings in any form, directly or indirectly, we can never be completely feeling guiltless and, therefore, we cannot completely be happy. We can be happy to some extent. Right. OK, anything else? No more? Ah, fantastic! OK! Thank you. I'll see you in a short while. OK. For the ones who'd like to know, please stay here. And the ones who don't want to know, God bless you and goodbye.God is something very precious. If you want to know Hirm, you have to make an effort. Go out and put you name down, and be serious about it. Then I will be serious with you. I’ll teach you everything that I know. OK, I'll see you after a while. (Right now, a little message to everybody here as there are a lot of people who have got the curiosity about the Quan Yin Method. So, there are a lot of people outside right down there in the hall, collecting the initiation forms and filling them in. So, I kindly remind those who are still interested, please, you are welcome to do that. And when everybody’s ready, we can get started. We are happy to see that there were so many interested people. And I’ll say it in Finnish also.Everybody, there are fruits blessed by Master, ocean of fruits and flowers. So, whoever is in need of Her precious blessing, please feel free to come close to Master. So please come to the front, whoever wants to be in touch with Master. And when you are ready with the initiation forms, please don’t worry; you can sit down in the hall and just relax for a little while and wait. So, we’ll call you all up; we’ll guide you to the meditation as soon as everything is ready. Thank you very much.)

The True Christ Power, Part 8 of 9: Questions and Answers, May 30, 1999

True happiness only comes from knowing God, which is the essence of our being. But in this world there are also some substitutions for happiness, and we can feel them temporarily. But the true happiness, we cannot compare to any of the so-called happiness in this world. I pay my own tickets, I pay my own hotel, I pay my own food. I risk airplane prob… airplane. I risk my life, I risk my health, I forsake my pleasure. I waste my time coming here just because I know that the way to God, there is only one, and everyone can know it. The way to end all this war and misunderstanding is just to know God, and I know this God, and Hes told me to tell you. And I will never ask one penny from you until the day you die or the day I die. Any service from me is free of charge. So you must know, I don’t collect donations. You must know the reason why I do it is because of the mandate of Heaven, because God orders me to do it. I am not for any fame and profit of this world because I have Hiers Kingdom in my heart. So, believe it or not, it is up to you. Thank you. All right, next question. Thank you. Thank you. (First in Finnish. Can eggs be included in a vegetarian diet?) Eggs, no. Why? I will explain. Eggs contain the life, the cycle of birth and death, the force of birth and death. And, we never know whether the egg is fertile or not fertile and we might eat the embryo of the egg.You are tired, huh? We’ll finish soon. It’s a very difficult job to translate.Also, eggs will attract negative energy. That's the reason why many of the magicians, they use eggs sometimes in an exorcism to draw the negative, possessed energy from a possessed person. You know that. Maybe you know. And sometimes they use eggs to feed the invisible low spirits so that they can boss them around and tell them to do bad things. So we do not want to have egg inside our body in case we might draw the negative energy directly to us. That's why we exclude eggs in our diet. OK, next one, please. Last one? (First in Finnish. What means “happiness”? Somebody said, “Whoever is better than another, that's happiness.” What is Your idea?) Happiness? True happiness only comes from knowing God, which is the essence of our being. But in this world there are also some substitutions for happiness, and we can feel them temporarily. But the true happiness, we cannot compare to any of the so-called happiness in this world. Some more? Some more questions? OK, let’s have it quick, so we can show people God. (Excuse me.) Yes, sir. (Yes. I would like very much to hear what is Your method) Yes, yes. (and what are You going to talk…?) Yes, yes, yes. I will show you, for the interested ones only. (Do we have any time to make those questions after You have told us about this method?) Questions are plenty. We can ask anytime. But the method, I will show only to the interested persons. I cannot force it upon the whole of the people who don’t want to know. You understand? (I understand, but You are going to…) Yeah, I will, I will show you. (OK. First in Finnish.) OK. Can I make a quick announcement? Those who want to know the method, you can go out and announce your name there and later we’ll call you, in the meanwhile, so you don’t have to wait long. And when I finish these questions, you come in, and we’ll start right away, so you don’t have to wait. You can go now, can go now, please. Can you announce it? Yes, yes, yes. You can go also. (OK.) All right. Yes, you, question, yes. Please be quiet. (I want to know my original source. How can I see it? Who can show it to me, my original source?) Who can I see or whom? (How can I see it?) How! Oh, God! (Who can show it to me?) I will show you; I will show you. If you let me know you are interested, go outside and put your name down. I’ll show you very shortly. (In Finnish.) All right. (Next question in Finnish. I am impatient and I would like to see the mind's nature. How can I see it or who could show it to me?)I think some of you would have seen a little of God while listening to my lecture also, just you didn't say it. Yes, yes, right? Some people say “yes.”And one of the gentlemen says, “Yes, yes.” If you are pure enough in your heart while listening to me, you already see the Light all over here; you have seen God or you have seen Christ already. But I will show you more after this. (Next question in Finnish. In English. Are there any dangers in meditation?) Any what, honey? (Is it in any way dangerous to meditate?)Oh. Yes, it is, if you don't know it properly. You must get the instruction and then you can do it alone at home, because you must know how to distinguish between the real and the illusion, because sometimes Satan, he comes and poses as the fake Jesus Christ and talks nonsense to you, and if you don't know the way to discriminate, you’d listen to the devil instead of Jesus Christ. That's why I have to take time to take care of you, to explain to you before you see God, how to distinguish. That takes a little time. (For what universal purpose a person must develop spiritually? Is this energy needed or this Light needed? Why do we have to develop spiritually?)Because, first, so that we can get out of suffering and frustration and limited freedom. Second, to bless ourselves and the universe and all the loved ones so that we can avoid hell and go to Heaven. (In Finnish, next question first. In English. Ordinary people, can they become enlightened, and if so, how? What kind of meditation do You use to become enlightened?)I am here for all the ordinary people. I am not here for the president of Finland. He can also learn, but... Yes. We are all ordinary, but we are all great because we are the children of God. There are no “ordinary people.” (Next question in Finnish. From the age of seven, I have prayed to God. Why can't I hear or feel any kind of answer? I am about to lose my faith.) Yes, yes. (In Finnish now, I am...)No, that’s right. Everybody prays to God but often don't get the answer because they are not connected with the God inside. That's why I am here to revive your faith again in God, so do not lose faith in God because God is there. I am going to show you Hirm so that you can believe Hirm again, and then, you don't even have to pray – God answers you, even before you pray. God answers us all the time, it's just that we don't have the spiritual “ear” open so we cannot hear Hirm. I am going to help you to open your Heavenly ear so you can hear Hirm.

The True Christ Power, Part 7 of 9: Questions and Answers, May 30, 1999

I am very clear about God because Hes reveals to me inside myself. Your God, my God – same God – just that you don't know Hirm yet. I know Hirm. When you meditate with my method, you can see Jesus yourself and ask Him yourself. (In English. Considering the spiritual path, is it right and blessed to adopt children from another culture?)Culture and traditions are man-made, spiritual way is God-made. It's always the same for every race. So, you don't have to change any kind of outer way of living, just practice contacting God inside by yourself, alone. Look, I come here, I wear a Western outfit, it's all right. (What kind of outfit?) Western. Makes no difference. God is only one. There is no Chinese God, Finnish God, German God, French God. (Is Your relationship to God as servant to the master, or as equal?) As what to the Master? (Servant.) As servant? Oh. No, no. Equal! We are God. As in the beginning, maybe we are still so not used to our original position, we might worship God as a Master, and we feel ourselves as a servant, but later Hes will bless us to know that we are one with God. Just like Jesus said, “I and my Father are one.” God made man in Hiers own image, so we are a part of God. How can it be master or servant? There is no master; we are all masters. It's just the language of the world sometimes separates us. (Next question. In Finnish. In English. If we are God, who will decide whether we get to go to Heaven?) You decide. (Second question in Finnish. In English. Jesus said, “Who is not for me is against me.” This means we cannot be God, although You appeal to or You refer to the Bible and to Jesus.) Hmmm? (That was the question. Shall I repeat it?) I know, I know, but what do you think?The Bible says that you are the children of God, not I say it. The Bible says that God makes you in Hiers own image, not I say it. The Bible says that you are the temple of God, and God lives within you, not I say it. So if this body is just a temple, and God lives within you, and then who are you? You are not God, then who are you? Are you the devil? What do you think? If you come from God, then you are God, part of God, no? At least part of God. No? So how do you say that I’m against Jesus? It’s your misunderstanding. It is your misunderstanding.I am very clear about God because Hes reveals to me inside myself. Your God, my God – same God – just that you don't know Hirm yet. I know Hirm. When you meditate with my method, you can see Jesus yourself and ask Him yourself. Now, because you don't have access to Jesus, you don't have access to God, so you misunderstand a lot about what the Bible says and what I say. Yes? Yes, He is. Christ is the only way. Listen, listen. I know you have not spoken to Jesus. The way you said it, I know. Don’t tell lies, because God knows.Jesus is a son of God, Christ is a son of God – Christ. You explain to him. Christ is the only son of God, because there is only one God, and Christ is the spirit of God which descends into Jesus' body to teach mankind. And in every generation, this only son of God, Christ, the power, Christ power, will descend into any other human body to teach mankind again, again and again. And whenever we can see this Christ power manifested somewhere, that is the son of God manifested to save us. Jesus still exists, but in another dimension, and the Christ power is still with Him, as well as within anyone that God has chosen to give this power. And this Christ power, the only son of God, is also within us.And that's why Jesus said that, “Know you not that you are the temple of God, and the Holy Spirit dwells within you?” Do not deny yourself this glory because you have God within you, you have Christ power within you. Christ also said that, “Whatever I do, you can do also.” Christ did not tell us that we are less, we are different from Him. We can do whatever He does, that's what He said in the Bible. Did He not? He just came to show us the way to know the God within us. He came to tell us that, “What I do, you can do also.” He came to show us that; but, of course, if we have not reached the level of Jesus Christ when He was alive, we could not understand His teaching very well. That's why there are so many wars even within Christianity, because they fight between whether this Christian group's God is higher than the other Christian group's God. It's a very sad affair. I hope I’ve made it clear. Thank you. Next one, please.(In Finnish. As we can see similarities between different religions, for instance, the enlightenment, when it comes to enlightened persons, such as Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, what is the common ground for Godliness in various religions? Or is there such a common factor when it comes to God? What or which is God?)Yes, which is God, there is only one. There is only one God, you know that. The only wise thing to do is just come and know this God. I just show you, and then you call Hirm whatever names you like. If you have time to study different religious doctrines, you will understand that they all point to the same God. The reason we argue between religions is because of two reasons. Number one, we don't have time to study all the religious doctrines. We don't even have time to study the whole bible of our own religion, to be honest, so we don't see the same essence of the teaching of all great religions and great Masters.Number two reason is that we are not enlightened enough to understand the real meaning of the religious doctrine. Remember the ones who wrote the doctrines, the Bible, for example, the ones who wrote the Bible are enlightened Saints. In order to know what they are talking about, we have to be at their level, and we are not.So we argue back and forth, we blame each other, we accuse each other, we slander each other's religious faith, and kill each other sometimes, because “my God is better than your God.” It is a shame. Suppose, if I believe in God, I should be a loving and kind person. I would never kill anyone else.So, if we don't understand a religion, it's a very dangerous thing. So please, I invite you to come and enlighten yourself, and then you can understand, and then you can teach others to understand the true meaning of Christ. I have no reason to sit here and tell you nothing that is not Truth.

The True Christ Power, Part 6 of 9: Questions and Answers, May 30, 1999

This method is for everything. Once we find God, we will have more peace and love inside to deal with all these human emotions in a better way.(I have a question, I hope You will solve this for me. I am a student, and I have lost my ability to concentrate and my motivation. How or in which way can I get these back? With the Quan Yin Method maybe? I cannot really start with my studies yet. I am suffering very much. Only You, Master Ching Hai, can help me, and also You can help other students as well.)When you start to grow up in your teenage life, there will be many distractions, and that's why it's difficult for you to concentrate. You can also practice a little bit of meditation. If you want Quan Yin Method, it's fine. If you cannot, then you can practice a simple method of concentration to help you. Also, try not to watch too much of the distracting movies, and not to look around at beautiful women or handsome men too much. After you finish your study, of course you can do anything you want. Think of your parents and your benefactors who work very hard for your study, and try to fulfill your obligation - because the student time is actually the best time - or later you will regret it. And tell yourself you must finish this study in front of you first, and everything else comes later; determine to finish. (If soul is eternal, the body lives only for a short time, how long does a persona live?)The soul lives forever, of course. The personality is just the habit that we acquire while we are in this physical body, and it lives as long as the physical body lasts. Next one, please. (Why do human beings have to be born on Earth? Why do we have to be born here?)Because we chose to. We chose to come here to gather a new experience on this planet, and when the time comes, we go back Home, or we come back again if we have not had enough satisfaction with the experience on Earth. (In English. Can an enlightened person live in a partnership relation, in an intimate relation?) Of course. Where do you think all these babies and children come from? Funny, I didn't come to ask you to become a monk. I only come to ask you to add God into your existing life, to make your life even more happy, more complete. Of course, you can be a monk if you want to, but that is not obligatory. (That is not?) Obligatory. Not necessary. (Is there a method for letting go? Letting go, like, sorrow, anger.) Of course. This method is for everything. Once we find God, we will have more peace and love inside to deal with all these human emotions in a better way. Please, the next one. (How can You show us God?)I just will. If you stay behind, you will know how. If you stay later, I'll show you how. (If I find God inside of me, as I really hope, how can I help my husband in his life? Can we still live together if he is not interested in this? What would happen to me if he is not interested in…?)Yes, of course, you can still live with him. As I said before, everyone has the right to choose his way of living. If you can live with a dog, cat, bird, why cannot you live with another human being? Interested in this method or not, he is still a God himself. When his time comes, he will choose to know God. Maybe his time has not come, then he chooses not to want to know. So, do not be anxious for somebody else's development. Be anxious only for your own. We can only offer something, but the person takes it or not, that's his own right. OK, thank you. It's getting better now. (What is most important to get you up in the meditation level, to find the harmonic level? Do You have any good, simple advice?)I will tell you how to help yourself during the transmission. It takes some time to tell you all this because you should learn it in a proper way; otherwise, the enlightenment takes just seconds. (Seconds?) Seconds, yes. (My name is Isaac. What can I do when I am depressed and frustrated about life? Do I seek medical help or spiritual help? If the answer is spiritual help, how do I seek it?)Every problem in this life comes from we don't know God, comes from the ignorance of God's power within ourselves. So finding God, we will be happy. Every problem will go away by itself. Talking too much doesn't help you – knowing God will help you.

The True Christ Power, Part 5 of 9, May 30, 1999

Knowing God is not only to elevate ourselves: it will elevate the world; it will bless the world's atmosphere; it will have less war; it will have more peace, more love, more abundance to everyone around us.Therefore, the wisdom of the old Masters has taught us many things, such as we should love one another, such as we should be honest, such as we should love God with all our might. But how to love God, if we don't know Hirm? I am going to show you God, so that you can love Hirm and you can know Hiers love and blessing every day. Every religion talks about God, so much talk about God everywhere, it's about time we know God.Knowing God is not only to elevate ourselves: it will elevate the world; it will bless the world's atmosphere; it will have less war; it will have more peace, more love, more abundance to everyone around us. Because we will become the living pole of transmission of the love from Heaven, of the blessing from Heaven, and then it will emit from our being to the surroundings.So, knowing God, not simply just because we want to have the God power, it is because we want to love the world more, we want to bless the world more, and cause more happiness to our loved ones and to our planet – even larger, to the whole universe. Because we are all linked together with an invisible tie that we don't even see. It's just like all the atoms are linked together in every material subject in order to hold them in one piece. We are also like the atoms of the universe, and we make the universe’s construction exist in a solid manner, but invisible to the naked eye.So, if the Light, the power within us, is rekindled, then the whole universe will benefit. We originally came from God, and God has the same essence like we have.Although the Most High has no form, Hes can also manifest in different forms, just as in this physical body, like us sitting here, or in another kind of metaphysical form, which we will see inside while we meditate on Hirm.And this metaphysical form will teach us so many things that we want to know; will help us with all kinds of problems in this life and the next. We can even access Jesus, Buddhas, etc. – all the Masters in the past – and converse with Them, and let Them teach us Their wisdom until we reach Their height. All of us will wonder, “How come…” - if we say we are God - “How come we can become this physical body, which is so helpless and so cumbersome to carry around, which is so not free, so limited?” In my knowledge, in my meditation, God has shown me how it happened. It's difficult to explain in the human language, but I shall try my best.We were originally the essence of Light, the essence of the very fine, subtle vibratory energy which creates all these particles in the whole universe. By the process of churning, we have become condensed into this physical being. But then, I have also been shown that there is always a particle inside which has never been churned into physical being, inside us. That is the Lifesaver within ourselves, that is the so-called “the Holy Spirit that dwells within” this “temple of God.”We are at the bottom of the churning process of the Creation, that's why we are a little coarse, we are a little cumbersome, heavy. There are other finer vibrational energies which are floating above us, and we could have access to them if we raise our energy up to their standard.And now, there is still always this little spark within us that has never been contaminated, that has never been processed into physical energy, and that spark we can always have access to in order to return to where we have come from, to reverse the process, to go back to the original state of being, which is Light, which is the fine energy. And this Light, this fine energy, this fine so-called vibration – the “Word” in the Bible – this is God, this is our essence of being. So, to get in touch with this original, fine energy, original Light, original Word, that is to get in touch with God. Although God also can show us Hiers metaphysical form, as I have mentioned earlier, to converse with us.I hope I have made it a little clear to you. I believe that you are an intelligent race of people – you have understood. In case I have forgotten anything, please let me know and I will answer you, and then I can show you the practical question that you’ve come here for, that is, I can show you God. You can see Hirm right away. OK. Thank you for your attention. You have been so good, so good, so quiet. I could even hear my own breathing. Yes, any question, please address, then the translator will tell me. You can write in English also.(The first question was that we were talking about violence and the two forms of violence. There's the physical and mental violence in a family.) Violence? (Yes. And they say that, there’s always maybe one member in the family that is chosen as a scapegoat. And this member is being prejudiced against that they… This one person in the family has bad karma (retribution), and this person can be also forced into meditation against the person's will, which is against all the principles of meditation.) What kind of meditation is that? Nobody should force anybody into any kind of spiritual practice, meditation or not meditation. Everybody should choose what they want to do. Can you hear her? (Yes.) Good. Yes or no? (Yes.) OK, and what else is there? (The other...) Just very concentrated and simple. (OK. The other question is about the physical violence in the family. It's not right that the husband hits his wife or parents hit their children. But how to stop these things from happening? And how to give people better ways of dealing with conflicts in the family?)OK. Family problems always happen everywhere, and of course, we are civilized people, we should talk together. And if, after talking and discussing, it still doesn't work, then we have to think of a solution, either try to bear it, or separate.

The True Christ Power, Part 4 of 9, May 30, 1999

Once we surrender ourselves to God's power, once we have connected ourselves with God power and surrendered to this power, everything will be taken care of to the minute detail. I have been traveling more than a month now, and every two days one country, and I have always found that I landed next to whatever I need. That is the extreme case.When I was in Slovenia... I am telling you all these experiences to assure you that you will be OK. We think that we change the way of life from flesh to vegan, but in fact we only return to what is right, or what we have forgotten. You can be courageous and decide that, OK, you follow through from today, or you can say, “OK, I try first.” And we have two ways for you to suit yourself.But vegan alone doesn’t make you find God; I have to show you. Then you can contact God every day, directly, just like using the Nokia or the Ericsson to say “hallo.” Even more direct than that, face to face. We all hear about God and Heaven, but we have never seen one, so it's about time to see. If God is there, we should be able to see Hirm somehow. There must be a way. If Heaven exists, we must be able to enter it, at least to peep, have a look. If I am such a small, humble person and can see Heaven, can talk to God, I am sure all of you can do even better. You are much more intelligent. Or even the old lady, very old – she cleans my room – she speaks, fluently, English. And, in case you have worried about the vegan diet, then don't be, because even if I am a stranger in your land and in every other land, I can find my way, then you can. Once we surrender ourselves to God's power, once we have connected ourselves with God power and surrendered to this power, everything will be taken care of to the minute detail. (I have to speak louder.) Yes, please. Please, because some people are very far, and some people have problem hearing. (OK.) Yes, thank you very much. Can you turn the volume higher? I know you have a very gentle voice, but here we need… Big hall, you see. That’s how we find courage, and we find all the strength to deal with all kinds of obstacles and problems in this life, once we are connected with God. All the Saints in the past, they have never, ever feared death, however humankind, however the enemies wanted to torture them, even cut their limbs one by one; they have always seen the glory of God, because they are so blissful inside. That we can be oblivious to outer influence, and to the pain of the world – doesn't matter how much the world wants to inflict suffering on us – we will not be so affected. Ah, yes, go back to Slovenia. I forgot about that. Of course, we travel, the big groups are traveling here also in order to help out with buying fruit, setting up microphone and printing a lot of free books for you, arranging lecture for you. But I travel alone, apart from them.So normally, I would take a taxi, and my luggage is very small like this – I have almost the same clothes, wash and wear again – so I always take a taxi. But in Slovenia, I don't know why that day there were only two taxis and they were taken immediately; probably they were already ordered from previously, and so they just came, fetched the customers, and drove away. There were buses, but they were full of people.There were taxis all over in the city, it's just that that day, they were not in the airport – nothing. It was the first time it ever happened, that I didn’t find any taxi at any airport like that. So, I kept waiting for a long time, and no other taxi ever showed up.So, I had to go and rent a car. There were also our brothers and sisters who came, but I wanted to let the other people, other brothers and sisters, go in the car. Because if they take care of me, there will be too much trouble, and other people don't have a car. There are no taxis.So, I went and rented a car in a nearby booth. I am not a good driver; I just began two years ago. I hardly drive; I normally have drivers. It’s just when I want to show that I am independent, then I go out and drive myself. So I rented a car. And then when I finished all the paperwork and everything, it took half an hour.And then when I came out, I discovered that it's a stick shift, it's not automatic, and I have never, ever driven a stick shift in my life! But somehow, I managed to drive to the city. It was a scary adventure. Of course, I asked the Father, “Please, You drive!” Because I never knew how to drive this car before.I am a very simple country girl, I am not used to complicated, mechanical stuff. And I couldn't believe it – I drove in a strange city with no experience, nothing! I drove to the hotel in the city.I just want to tell you that if we truly have connection with God, we have no fear; we can do anything and we are always protected. So, have no fear of, even, that we don't have food to eat or we don't have a means of transportation or that any problem in life may arise. We must be courageous and follow whatever our heart tells us “that is right.” You can also try to go slowly, but we are man, we can decide quick. Besides, the reason is that, once we are in contact with God and we want to become one with God and we want to be God-like, a walking God on this planet, then we should represent Hiers quality, which is Love, and Love includes all beings.When we want to go into a higher dimension of Heaven – Heaven has many levels, just like in this society we have different classifications – if we want to go into the highest dimension of Heaven and know the deepest secret of the universe, we should have less and less burden as possible. And those things that we consume, such as alcohol, drugs and flesh, these are the burdens that are very detrimental to our journey to Heaven.Not that God cares about what we eat or what we take into our physical body. It is just that we must be purified physically, emotionally, and spiritually in order to be a unique being, glorified that we are, that is, the children of God.God loves us, no matter how much we sin. No matter how many blunders we committed, God always loves us, and in Hiers eyes, we are always Hiers children. But for ourselves, for our conscience, we should, we must walk the noble way of Love, in order to feel free from any guilt feeling, in order to be one with Hirm. Because originally, we are God, and eventually, we will become one with the Ocean of Love that is God again. We are God manifested in this physical world. So there is no one to judge us whether we are bad or we are good, except ourselves, our own wisdom, our own conscience, our own fairness of knowledge that will judge ourselves at the time of departure from this world.That's why we must rid ourselves of all this unnecessary burden so that we can recognize the pureness essence of original Self, which is from God, which is great, which is all-love, all-light, all-blessing. …I’m sorry. I am sorry. You are doing great. It's just I speak so fast.

The True Christ Power, Part 3 of 9, May 30, 1999

The True Christ Power, Part 3 of 9, May 30, 1999

We have spent a lot of time in some of the useless pursuits, and which we sometimes regret later. So, now that we know how to find God – I am going to show you – now that we know the way to find freedom, the way to find happiness inside, we will make use of this wasted time only, the free time only, to turn it into the precious discovery of the Kingdom within ourselves.Sometimes I am just so… bursting inside and I just don't know how to explain this to people. I look back at my life before and I look at my life now, there are differences. I was so bound, so limited, so restricted, by myself, by all kinds of conventions, by all kinds of prejudice, by all kinds of traditional thinking and way of life that even though I lived in free, democratic countries, I never felt truly free.And then, when I first got a glimpse of God, first got a taste of enlightenment, I thought, “That's it! I am free!” I felt free. But then, that was just a fraction of the freedom, until I kept continuing to recognize this freedom, and then it grew and grew until I cannot explain anymore what true freedom is. I just know I am free. And when I looked at some of our brothers and sisters who are still in the stage that I was before, I’d feel sorry, because this freedom, every one of us can attain, but not every one of us has. Even enlightened people will take a little while to get the complete freedom. It's not the outside freedom, it's not the outward action, like you have to jump around or shouting on the street or advocate for your own freedom inside. It's just the limitless feeling of expansion that you could be anything you want, you could do anything you want, and yet, you still remain in virtues, you still remain in God's love, you still remain in perfection. And yet, no one will ever be harmed, be killed, or be suppressed in any way by our attaining our freedom. We work so hard daily just to attain the freedom of living, the freedom of survival, so we can have enough food, we can have enough necessities to take care of our physical life. So, it is about time. Since we have everything already in this physical comfort, it is about time we work for our spiritual freedom. It is the new season, I think we can begin to do something new, and I come here to offer you a new way, a newfound freedom that you will never regret again, that you have never found before no matter how much money you have. Excuse me. You know the smoking cough. I also have to share the generosity of the smokers around Europe when I travel. Just like I want to offer you a method to find freedom, they offer me their secondhand smoke.Well, everyone offers what they have, so I offer you the best that I have. And this offering will never cost us anything, not even effort. Not even effort because we have it inside us already. All we have to do is just to make use of it. It's even cheaper than the water that I drank this morning. You have to pay for water here, right? Tap water? Well, even if you don't have to pay for the water, we still have to pay tax in order to make the pipe and the water tower and everything. But to drink the water of life – this means the water of blessing from God – we don't have to ever, ever pay one penny. And it takes as much time as... just like we sleep or we rest on a coffee break. It’s OK? Can hear? Yeah.We have spent a lot of time in some of the useless pursuits, and which we sometimes regret later. So, now that we know how to find God – I am going to show you – now that we know the way to find freedom, the way to find happiness inside, we will make use of this wasted time only, the free time only, to turn it into the precious discovery of the Kingdom within ourselves.So, there is not even time that we need, not even effort that we need. All we have to do is know how to find God. All of us know that sometimes, we just don't know what to do also with some of our free time. Sometimes, we are so bored – the time we sit on the train, the time we sit on the buses, the time we sit on the airplane, or the time, sometimes we just sit in the park doing nothing. All these times, we can turn into conducive moments to enjoy the freedom within, and then manifest it also without. The people... Sorry, love. You’re all right? The people of Finland have everything already, almost. You even have one of the best telecommunication systems. I use them. I use your telephone, two of them, two of the most famous. So, actually, I cannot offer you any more material comfort than your country already offers, itself, but I can offer you something greater than earthly possessions and success – I can offer you the Kingdom of God, which you have forgotten. And it's so easy, like you are looking at the flowers now. Because it is so easy, I am confident that almost all of you would want to have it because it is the greatest thing you can have.But one thing, a little bit impractical, that I also share the sympathy with you, it is maybe the way of life that we are used to. We are, scientifically speaking, originally vegan beings, because we have a longer intestine than those who eat flesh, like tiger-people for example. But since we are being taught to be used to eating flesh, it might be a little difficult to go back to the original way of life. And for that, we also have some, like a so-called convenient way, so you can try to get used to the vegan diet. And we also will teach you to cook, and sample those cookbooks for you, etc., etc. Maybe that will help a little bit to facilitate your transition back to the original, noble way of life. Because these days I also have been traveling alone. I mean completely alone, with luggage and check in, check out, tickets and booking, everything alone, just to try to see how an ordinary person fares his way through the world if he is to be vegan. And I found that it's not always that simple for you. Because I travel alone. But if you travel together, two, it's easier. You can also bring simple things to cook and it will be fine. And nowadays, almost every hotel and restaurant, they have a vegan menu, a small one. And in the airplane also, you can demand vegan food, but not very, very generous vegan food. I think many people still have the notion that vegan means only vegetables. Or some people think that fish is also a vegetable – funny idea, of course. But then, if many of us practice the spiritual way of life, then God will provide, just like God has provided me these days with everything that I need, even though I travel from one country to another, not knowing where I will land and in which hotel I will have a room, because I don't book in advance. I just want to see how God will provide things for me. And we can survive all right.But of course, if we stay home and cook for ourselves, it is much more tasty and more nutritious. When I am at home, I hardly ever get sick of any kind at all. It’s just when I travel, I always get infected. Anyhow, most of us don’t have to travel, so it’s all right. So, this is the only thing that I found up to now. A setback for most of the people is the vegan diet that they are afraid of. But it must not be, must not be an obstacle. Once we have the will, there is a way, and God really will provide everything we need.

The True Christ Power, Part 2 of 9, May 30, 1999

Everything when we can use in abundance, we feel free and we feel very, very happy. Similarly, if we can make use of the blessing of God, which is inside us, then we will feel very, very free.(Beloved Master Ching Hai, Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai, beloved audience and all disciples of Master, welcome to this Cultural House of Helsinki on this sunny Sunday afternoon to meet our beloved Teacher, the highest Master, Master Ching Hai. We initiates of Finland have been sincerely praying already for a long, long time that our Master would visit here one day. And in this northern country, it's very far away, and She is very busy; we know that very well. Today, that deep wish of many hearts has become true; and today is also a very big day in this country, Finland, for countless families, as it is Mother's Day here. Respected ladies and gentlemen, in front of you now sits the highest Master, Master Ching Hai. And those who have any gifts or flowers to bring to Her, please feel free to do that now and put them beside Her. So, one more applause to Master Ching Hai, please. Welcome. The next program, after Master has received some gifts from our disciples and visitors, is that we are all very excited to hear Master’s lecture.)Thank you very much. (I repeat once more in Finnish, if somebody has flowers or some small gifts for Master, you are welcome to give them.) Here. Come here, come here. Want some candy? OK. Hey! You also want? You’re so big. Thank you. Wow.Thank you so much for your love. I’ll give you the flowers later. It’s very difficult to hear from here. Can you hear very clearly over there? (Yes.) Yes? (Does it sound better now if I speak closer?) They understand English, wonderful people. (Yes.) (So, thank You for pointing that out. So now it’s Master’s turn to start speaking, and… yes.) Thank you, thank you. Thank you, a good, beautiful evening to you. How are you? How is everybody? It is like spring in your country. (It is spring here in Finland at the moment.) Ah, yes. Some technical problem. In Finland, it is springtime now? Or summer? Summer. But it seems like spring to me because yesterday, I walked through the park and near the lake, and it still feels a little like spring air, and also the new leaves have just begun to come out. The springtime always makes people feel good; makes me feel good. It feels like we should renew our life; we begin everything in the very, very enthusiastic spirit. I thank you for the Finland brothers and sisters who have invited me here repeatedly, and finally, I made it to your country. May God bless you and your country so much, in this new, coming year and the new-coming era because your people deserve it so much, the very fine, very gentle race of people. In just the short time that I have arrived here until now, I have met only kindness and love everywhere – on the street, in the store, in the taxi, in the train station, everywhere. The country is so fresh, the air so clean, everything feels so pleasant to the heart. Even the water from the tap, you can drink – so clean. Nowadays… Is that true? Can drink, huh? Because I drank it – I have drunk it this morning. I hope it's OK. Because I asked the people if I could drink some water directly. They said, “Yes, yes,” and I was so happy, and I drank it right away.For me, the water in the land, if you can drink directly from the tap, is a great blessing, because it feels abundant, feels like you can drink forever and you don't have to worry. Nowadays, not every country's water you can drink. Many countries’ water is very contaminated, and you have to limit yourself to small bottles, and I feel very restricted. The hearing is OK still, huh? Give me a sign if you cannot hear. Good. All right. Everything when we can use in abundance, we feel free and we feel very, very happy. Similarly, if we can make use of the blessing of God, which is inside us, then we will feel very, very free. Then we don't even have to pray for God's blessing. It will always be there automatically. And that's what I want to talk to you about, the freedom – the freedom that is not known on this planet unless we know God, unless we know the freedom inside, the bliss, the blessing inside. It is lucky that we live in a free country such as Finland. And then, we can even sit together and talk about the greater freedom of Heaven, which we can attain right now, while we are still working in this physical life. This freedom… oh, my God! This freedom is the greatest possession, is the greatest merit, the greatest treasure that we can ever wish to have.

The True Christ Power, Part 1 of 9, May 30, 1999

“I have practiced already six years the Quan Yin Method with the help of Supreme Master Ching Hai. I do it with all my heart and I pray, that Master Ching Hai will help me and give me peace. As a child I was very weak. When I was ten years old I went with my mother and other charitable people to visit a military hospital to see the wounded and give presents. I noticed how many wounded boys were there, their age around 18 and 20 years old. Some boys had lost their arm, some had their leg cut off. One youngster had lost his sight and an elderly person sat by his side and tried to feed this young blind man.”“I felt enormous sadness and pain as I watched these people wounded in the war. Then I asked myself: life and humanity, what is it about? Why are these young people suffering and why do we wage war with each other?” “I concluded that I had to pray silently inside: from whom or where could I get instruction and support for spiritual peace on the walk of life, because I really needed it. Suddenly, fate brought this gift to my life, as a friend told me that an older woman, a preacher, lives in America. She donates sample booklets and videos with lectures. I asked for a sample booklet to read and I was fascinated by it, with every sentence, every page. It was easy for me to understand it, just like a friend was telling me about the meaning of life.”“Then I decided to become a disciple of Master Ching Hai. Two months later, I was initiated in Germany. When I returned home, it was easier for me to meditate and to eat pure plant-based food.”“My experiences from the initiation: I saw the (inner Heavenly) Light and heard the (inner Heavenly) Sounds very clearly. At the group meditation, I also saw the (inner Heavenly) Light and heard the (inner Heavenly) Sounds and after the group meditation I noticed how great, happy and wonderful I felt. Sometimes in meditation, I felt emptiness, then again, I felt better inside.”“Each day of my life, when I have difficulties, I pray inside that Master will give me strength and courage, and those I have always received.”

Pacifying the Mind, Part 9 of 9: Interview with Supreme Master Ching Hai (vegan) by Turkish Media, Nov. 20, 1999

If we find God, everything is all right, even if we have to leave the physical body, which everyone does in one way or another. Even if we have to forsake our possessions, God is always there, and God is our only possession, and God is the only security, and God is the only thing that we should always remember and look for in any circumstance. (If we can fix it, right away. There are people waiting downstairs. Of course, if you leave beforehand, She will come afterwards, Hallo, do you have a place?) That’s better, give her the chair. You can sit here. What did you say? You threw them out or something? (They said only five or seven minutes.) Oh, don’t worry, it’s OK. (Oh, OK.) It’s OK. I’m in Turkey already, where can... ...how much they make me work. We were just talking nicely and now I have work to do. Yes? (Do you have any questions, friends?) Hallo! I didn’t know you were there. They told me nobody came. (Is there is any, our friend can help you from over there.) Translate, every time. (Or if you will ask in English, go ahead.) Yes, yes.(These meetings and the teachings that You have delivered, do they work? Regarding the 21st) Century. (century, is there something specific? Are they looking for some stronghold that they can hold on to? How exactly is Your teaching related to the century?) They should look upon God for any stronghold anytime, not 21st century, 22nd century. Any day, every minute, every second, we should always look upon God only. God is the only source of our strength and wisdom. (You say that it is not a religion,) Yes, it is not. (then what is it?)God is the only religion. We just now have talked about a lot of people want to get the answer from God, so I say pray deeper! I have just told one of our sisters here, she asked me why did I come here. I said I go wherever God sends me to. And each one of us has a different job to do, like you are a journalist, I am coming here just to deliver the message that we are all brothers and sisters. And... (So,) Yeah? (it is not a religion, that we believe in God are our feelings? Can we say that?) Right, right, right. And she was just asking a very good question, Just like Prophet Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him, even He is a Prophet, Peace Be Upon Him, first He has to go in a quiet place and still Himself, still His mind, and then the angel can give the message through. God always can give us messages through an angel at least, but we are too busy in the mind to listen, so people sometimes wonder whether there is really God. There is! Just we have to calm down. So she asked how to do that. I said, “Oh yes, that's why I am here to offer a way.” There is a way to calm down the mind. There are many ways. (So, You see Yourself as a Messenger of God?) All of us are Messengers of God. We do different things. It's just my job is just to offer people how to calm the mind, so they can directly talk to the angel from God, from the Messenger of God, the direct one. Yes? It's very easy. Just like if you want to be a journalist, you learn in the school how to deal with people, how to ask questions and whom to ask and how to open the door. So, if we want to have contact with angels, the Messenger of God, we have the way to do it. We must know the way. So, I have tried, and it worked. So, I share the knowledge with the people. Just like you know many things, the way you go and ask, like, the president, you ask him questions and he answers you, and you come back and write an article, you share it with your people, or the world people. Our job is the same. That’s it. Yes, translate. Thank you. I am only teaching this. (Sorry, can I ask something? A Muslim believes that the inside voice or connection with God is found with Islam. If you ask a Christian, they believe it is found with Christian rules. If you ask a Jew, he/she believes it is found with Jewish laws. You ask a Buddhist; he finds it that way. What is the method of this Lady? Is it something above all this? Is it something different? Is it something that pushes all of this aside? Is it something that includes them all, what is it? Can you ask that?) (In all religions, if you address the people of a specific religion, they will say, Muslims will say, “If I read my book, the Qur’an, then I have access to this Voice of the Creator.”) That is good, then it’s good. (And all religions will say the same thing about their books and their messages.) If they do, it's good.(So what is so specific about Yours? Is it above all these disciplines and religions?) No. (Does it all embrace them all?) Yes. (What exactly?) Yes. The question answers itself. Do they really hear the Voice of God like the Prophet (Peace be upon Him) did? Like Jesus did? Like Prophet Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him did? Do they really, do they talk to God? That's the question. If they do, it is good, yes. If they cannot still their mind enough, and contact directly to the Messenger of God, then I can help them to still the mind. I am here only for the people who cannot hear the Voice of God. For the people who can hear, I come learn with them too. Every religion says the same. It's correct, too, because we have only one God, one Father. Yes. Should we have a Muslim God, a Christian God, a Buddhist God, do you think? No, we have only one God. (I think there is need to talk about Her personal story a bit. When, I mean… In a way You are being called Supreme Master, being called Guru…. A bit earlier, She said She had heard the voice of God. She should tell about that changing point in Her life. Maybe also when She heard the voice of God…) (We want to find out how You came to call Yourself “The Supreme Master”? How You first heard the Voice or?) I don’t call myself that. It is the title, the title that is given to me. (At least the thoughts intended for those in Istanbul. Are there any messages She wants to deliver to them? Because there are obvious problems in Turkey, In the last few days people have been dealing with overwhelming problems. Regarding all this, does She have any information, will there be any suggestions? Would She summarize these shortly?) (Do You have some specific message to the people of Istanbul? You know there are specific disasters, people are going through suffering and all that. Do You have something specific to tell these people?) Yes. This is the first question I asked when I arrived in Istanbul. I asked my driver, "Are the victims of the earthquake, are they better now? Better improved?" And he said it's not in the capital, it is in the countryside. So, it's the first question I asked. And of course, my message is the same, like everyone else who is concerned about our own brothers and sisters, is that my message is the same with your message. It's a message of love, and we cannot express enough in the human language about this love that resides within us, which is God's love. We all have this, and we all have love for each other. And I can only know from what God has told me that disasters to the body are nothing compared to the disaster of the soul. If we find God, everything is all right, even if we have to leave the physical body, which everyone does in one way or another. Even if we have to forsake our possessions, God is always there, and God is our only possession, and God is the only security, and God is the only thing that we should always remember and look for in any circumstance. Whatever God takes away, Hes gives in another form. Sometimes Hes takes away physical things, Hes gives back spiritual comfort. And we should always remember God and pray to God all the time. Like the Muslims do, five times a day. Five times a day. Are you happy? Ask them (Yes.) are they happy? (Excuse me. Could you ask your questions? So You came not to perform miracles but to remind us? You didn’t come to act miracles but You came to remind?) Yes, yes. That’s right. I came to remind people of God. Only God can make miracle. Miracle is not necessary. God does everything correctly already. Even disaster is correct. Just we have to see it correctly. We have to know why it is correct. Thank you so much for coming. Please translate. Thank you so much. (Their friend.) Please take some fruits and something with you. There are fruit, candy, whatever over there too. Please bring them outside so they can grab with their hand when they go out.

Pacifying the Mind, Part 8 of 9: Questions and Answers, Nov. 20, 1999

There are many mansions in the house of God, yes? Many mansions. So the UFO people are also the creation from God. They are just different beings. They live in another dimension. And sometimes they visit us so that we know there are other beings. We are not the only ones. And that we know that God is mighty, Hes creates all kinds of things and all kinds of beings. (The people who are initiated by You, Master, are they protected against the abduction of UFOs and everything?) Yes. Protected from all the negative things. (You said some still bring messages from God. Who are these? How do they deliver these messages?) That, you know when you talk to them. Because to everyone, they deliver different messages according to your question. These are the beings who are much, much higher developed than ourselves and they live in the world with God. They don't live in a physical body like us, and so if we want to contact them, we have to also leave this physical dimension, in a way of speaking, then contact them, then they will tell you whatever you want to know. Next one. Next one, please.(Please explain “returning Home.” Where is our Mother?)Returning Home what? Where? (Returning Home. Please explain what is “returning Home” and where is our Mother?)Where is our Mother? (Yes.) Our mother is where we left Her. Returning Home means not here. Back to where we came from. Back to where we came from, before this physical body. (What do You think about UFOs and extraterrestrial connection for now and for the future of our world?) Collection? (Connection.) Ah, connection. What do you want me to think? There are many mansions in the house of God, yes? Many mansions. So the UFO people are also the creation from God. They are just different beings. They live in another dimension. And sometimes they visit us so that we know there are other beings. We are not the only ones. And that we know that God is mighty, Hes creates all kinds of things and all kinds of beings. (I'm afraid that we are running out of time.) Yes, yes. (And we have to come to a close with the question part.) So if you would like to learn the way that I want to show you, please put your name down there, and then we.... They have another room, OK? And I'll see you in that room. Thank you so much! I’ll see you. Allah bless you. Oh, thank you. Oh, my God! Thank you. What is this? Oh, you draw something? Thank you. Can I give you a hug? Hold it. Wait, wait. Thank you. Thank you. Wait. Thank you. Thank you. Give you a hug. OK, I give you something else. This is special. Very funny. (Thank You very much.) Yes. I know, I know. Same, same.

Pacifying the Mind, Part 7 of 9: Questions and Answers, Nov. 20, 1999

When we are in very, very deep, deep, deep contemplation on God, we will see that God and us are one. We are nothing but offspring of God. We're one with God, we are Hiers offspring, we are Hiers own Self.(How do I become Your disciple?) My what? (Disciple.) No, you don't become my disciple. You are God! You are God's disciple! I show you how to become God's disciple, real one. (Is this meditation technique the same as the other ones? What is different when compared with the others?) I just say about ours, OK? Quan Yin is a Chinese name for contemplating on the Word of God - means direct contact with God. It's just because I started in Taiwan (Formosa) and so they just use “Quan Yin” all the time, and it's become a habit; otherwise, it's the Word of God. This is the name, this is the meaning of it. We contact directly with this Word, like it says, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." And this is the Word that the Prophets contact with and we can hear that too. (Is love in religion or religion within love?) Love is the only religion. (I speak to God every moment. I think of God every moment. Still I cannot meditate, as if hindered miraculously. How do I transcend this?) I'll show you. Just stay a little while. After I answer everybody, I will show you. We have to know how to calm the mind; otherwise, even if not five times praying, five hundred times still cannot, cannot hear God. We pray to God, but our mind makes trouble, our mind keeps thinking about money, business, everything, and then when God wants to talk, we cannot hear. For example, I am talking to the translator right now and if you tell me something, I cannot hear you. Even though you talk to me, I don't know that you're talking. I cannot hear you because I'm talking and thinking of this and translating and all that. (Is there something God cannot do? If no, can He or She create another God of Him or Herself?) Yes, there is nothing God cannot do. But what for we need two Gods? We already have too many - Christian God, Muslim God, Buddhist God. If we create another one, we'll be in trouble. God is constantly creating. Hes makes different Gods all the time. (There’s only one God.) Yes. Hes makes out of Hirmself many Gods. Look at yourself. God is with you. I have explained to you already about the circle of God, and we are in it, we are part of God. (How should a person experience him or herself? How should?) By calming his mind. After he calms the mind, the God-self will reveal, because nothing else but God. When we don't calm our mind, we identify this body as me, this thinking, talking mind all the time, ‘wanting things’ mind, this is me; it's not! “Me” is different. “Me” is one with God, “Me” is a child of God. When we are in very, very deep, deep, deep contemplation on God, we will see that God and us are one. We are nothing but offspring of God. We're one with God, we are Hiers offspring, we are Hiers own Self. We don't see the body anymore. During a deep contemplation the body disappears completely, the whole world disappears, only God exists. Only God exists! Nobody, nobody, not even the president of the United States, not even anybody, not even yourself is there. Then you’ll know. Only one God. At that time, you really have calmed your mind. (If Creator is single, aren't we also within it? Why then there is a separation of you and I?) We are like a fish in the sea all the time. We never leave the sea. Never! Likewise, God is all over us. We are swimming in God, we're eating in God, we're sleeping in God, we're thinking in God, we're nowhere except inside God. It's just we don't see because we're too busy. That's why the Prophet, Peace Be Upon Him tells us, "Don't kill another person, don't do bad to your brothers and sisters." Because why? God is always there. Hes sees everything! You think we can do it in the dark and God doesn’t see? We're always in God! But in order to see God we have to forsake everything - I mean, in spirit, not like you leave your family, or not like you give your possession to me. No, no, no, no. You have to really disconnect your Self, your inside soul with this physical world, then you can see God. Actually, you should not ask me anymore questions. The Qur’an said everything already. God is always here. For example, just to clarify the statement I have just said. God has said to us, "Be a good guest in this Earth." Guest only! We are guests here. It's not real! Be a guest, that means what? OK, you borrow the cup, you borrow the house, you borrow the car, you borrow a wife, you borrow a kid, you borrow a husband - just borrow. Because everything is not real here. Our real home is Heaven. That's why God said, “Be a good guest on Earth,” but live a rich life, live a fulfilled life, in order to live a really rich life, not money rich, rich in knowledge of God, rich in knowing we are God's children. That's what the Qur’an told you to do, and I am just here to show you how to realize that in real, not just by words, but in real! See God! See God, and then you can have a rich life. Even if you don't have money, you feel rich because you have God and see God so that you know that we are only guests here, and then we'll be nice to each other. Doesn't matter what religion, what nationality, we can only be a good guest here when we know God. We can only live a rich life when we know God. In that sentence is enough already. Like you have to really disconnect yourself with the world, have to realize that we are guests only, so we don't attach to money, fame, profit, whatever because we are only guests here. Disconnect yourselves with the world, calmly, calm down, then contact Heaven. But it's difficult to disconnect. You forget how. I am here to remind you how, then you’ll remember. Quick, like this. (Is the meditation the way to get to God or not?) Yes, yes! This way. Just to calm the mind. But you have to know the correct way; otherwise, you cannot calm the mind. Meditation just means calm the mind. That's it. Calm the mind. You have a word for that in Turkish? (About the calming?) Contemplation? (Contemplation, yes. Deep thought.) Yeah, deep thought! Yes! Deep thought about God that you don't think of anything else, just one thought, God. Then you see. (There are two questions here. What do You mean by going and coming back from Heaven? What is meditation?) Yes, OK. “Going” because in a human language, if we see something else, that means we're going. For example, if I am not in America, and I am in Turkey, means I've gone to Turkey. And if I go back to America, I am going back to America. So in order to make it clear, I have to use the same language. Otherwise, if you know Heaven, you don't need me talking. So, going to Heaven and coming back means, “OK now, we are here,” right? We are here, we don't see any Heaven. Even though Heaven is always here, we don't see. So, in order to tell you we can see Heaven, OK, we leave the physical world and enter Heaven. And then when we leave Heaven, we enter the body and the physical world again, we don't see Heaven again. So that means going, coming, going, coming - just human language. This is just the beginning, actually, this state. Later on, you'll see Heaven anywhere, even when you're driving a taxi You can hear God even when you wash your dishes. You remember again how to contact God, then it becomes easy. Some of our brothers, he drives a car, he also can experience the (inner Heavenly) Light of God. And some are housewives, she washes dishes, she can experience the (inner Heavenly) Light of God, too. But be careful, maybe sometimes you drop it. Too happy and then drop the dishes.

Pacifying the Mind, Part 6 of 9: Questions and Answers, Nov. 20, 1999

God is the (inner Heavenly) Light, God is the Love that we feel. God is the (inner Heavenly) Music of Heaven.(Could You identify more clearly whom You call our single Father?) Identify Hirm? This is your job. How can I tell you what it tastes like, what I drink? If I drink, I can tell you,“OK, it’s sweet.” But you don't know. You just think that it's sweet, but you don't taste it. I cannot describe to you, but I can show you, then you can identify yourself. I can give you the cup and the same juice inside, then you'll know, "Ah, yes, I know it's orange juice. OK, it's sweet." So I invite youto stay and “drink” after. Or you can go out and tell my people outside, write your name down so later they can gather you and then we’ll show you. It’s fast. After I explain to you how to still your mind, you'll see the Father, I promise. The Father, OK, can be a Mother too, can be. You can even see Prophet Muhammad, Peace Be Upon Him, and then ask Him directly what the Father is a She or a He, or is Hes Muslim, or is Hes Christian? And He will tell you, better than I do. Because when you are in His level, in the spirit level, you understand better than in human language. When we are in human form, we are limited. We are limited by the brain, by the ears, by the physical eyes. But when we are in the spirit, we are one with God, and we understand everything, no need anybody to explain. When the Prophet Muhammad, Peace Be Upon Him sat in the cave, what did He experience? You tell me, what? Anybody remember? Yes? (We couldn’t understand the question. We couldn’t understand the question! Not Muhammad, Peace Be Upon Him… Moses… He went to the mountain.) Yes? OK, OK. What’s the answer? (Well, he said that Moses went to the cave too. He mixed Them; two, into each other.) He mixed what? (Moses and Muhammad, (Peace Be Upon Him). He said, “Moses went to the cave too.” Not only…) Yes, yes, I know that. (Yes.) I know that. I’m just speaking here in terms that the Turkish people more identify themselves with. Jesus also went into the desert. It doesn’t have to be a cave. It can be in your room also. I’m trying to explain to people what God is like, so I asked this question. If you answer me, I will explain. What did Prophet Muhammad, Peace Be Upon Him, see? Or what did Moses see? (An angel.) Angel! And then what did He hear? (Read.) What? (Hes told him to read.) Read what? (The words of God.) Yes. Yes? Not only read. (Yes.) Read, act, transfer the messages of God. (Yes.) In the name of God, whatever you do, you have to say in Turkish or in Muslim, In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. Or in Christian, It’s the same. In the name of God. Yes, in the name of God. (Right.) Act in the name of God. (Yes. Right.) Say it in the name of God, (Right.) whatever you do. (Yes.) So this you can hear too. All right? You can also see the angel, after I show you. But you must also do your work, like, sincere, really want. So, what did Moses see when He was in the mountain? What did He see? What did He hear? OK, OK. It's all right. It's all right. Yes, so what did he say? (Well, he said that He went up and He wrote something to stop the evil. And he's saying that He didn't write it by Himself, it was God who wanted Him…) That’s God wanted Him to write. That's correct. That's correct. That's just a different expression. God wrote...Apart from that, Moses also saw God as a bush of flame, also heard the voice of God like thunder voice, right? Right. After that God told Him to write that. Yes. Yes. Yes, you. (Well. He's saying that Moses wanted to see God, and He said to God, "Let me see You.") Yes. (And Hes said that, "You cannot see me, but if you want so much…" Hes showed Hirmself on the mountain bush (as a (inner Heavenly) Light). Yes, yes, yes, that's right. That's right. That’s right.Because God is not the way we imagine, OK, here comes God with a head and a nose or things like that. God is the (inner Heavenly) Light, God is the Love that we feel. God is the (inner Heavenly) Music of Heaven. Hes can manifest Hirmself in different ways like Moses and the Voice of thunder, the (inner Heavenly) Sound of many waters, the (inner Heavenly) Sound of the trumpet, and all through the Voice of the angel as our Prophet, Peace Be Upon Him has heard it or in the bush of flame - big, big, big (inner Heavenly) Light. These things you can also experience. That I can promise. This is God who manifests in this kind of way. Yes. Because God is not a person like this or like that, but God can also make Himself or Herself into a person like in the form of a Prophet to talk to us. Yes. (He says that, to see angels, You must be a friend of God.) Yes. Yes. Yes! We are Hiers children, not just friends. We will show you how. Yes, yes. (Isn't meditation a kind of ritual?) Oh, no, no. It's a natural thing to do. Because every day we are very busy thinking of different things, so when we sit down and calm our mind so that we can contact God, it's not a ritual. Because most ritual is physical, this one is nothing physical. Just calm the mind, that's all. And there is a way to calm the mind quick, that's all, OK? Thank you. Thank you so much. We will answer all the questions, but have to respect order, like first question first, second question second. Please forgive me. (Next question.) Yes. (Will everyone easily practice the path You will teach?) Yes. Even we have children like six years old, they can also do it. Because God is within us, so it's easy. We just forget. Need a little reminding, you'll remember right away. Next one. (Where will you go after death? What will happen?) We go where we want to go. If we want to go back to God, then we prepare the road to go there. If we don't want to go back to God, then we do many different things that prepare the road not to go back to God. So, it depends on what you want. If you want to go back to God, practice now. Now! You pray five times a day, that is preparing to go back to God. And God will even tell you what day you die. If you calm your mind during these five times of praying you will hear God, you will hear the angel of God at least, and you’ll know when you’ll leave the world, when you’ll die and what’ll happen. You’ll already see it before you die. But if you don't calm your mind enough, you cannot hear. So, if you can calm your mind, it's good. If you cannot, I'll show you how to calm your mind. It's very simple.

Pacifying the Mind, Part 5 of 9: Questions and Answers, Nov. 20, 1999

We are always with God. We are never away from God. It's just sometimes we are too distracted by physical survival. We lost contact. That's all.(Questions.) Yes, please. (How do I concentrate completely in meditation?) That I will show you. I’ll show you later. We have to sit still together. I'll show you how to be still first, OK? Once you still your constantly chatting mind, everything else God takes care. But there is a way to still the mind. There is a way. God exists so that we can know Hirm. There is a way to know, we just forget. If we exist, it’s because we have a father, a physical father, and it's good that we know who our father is, no? We want to know. (Shall I ask another question?) Yes, yes. Anytime, continue. Yes. (What is the shortest way to meet with the Creator?) Yes, I've found it. That's what I want to tell you. After, after. (There is another question here: How did You meet first?) I went to the Himalayas and met a person who had known this way and He showed me and then I could show you. (In no religion, they forbid eating meat. Does that not oppose Your teaching?) In which religion? (In no religion.) Oh. Yes, You read the Qur’an again. It says you don't eat meat, yes. (Should I pass?) Yes, please. (How can You say “Father”? Isn't that blasphemy?) How can you? Say “Father” to God? Oh. OK, then I say “Mother,” all right? Well, in our human language we have two sexes, female and male. And most religions address Father, God, as a male, so I go along. I don't want to contradict you. But it's not a He, it's not a She. It's a God. God can be a He, God can be a She - God is everything. According to what Hes shows me, Hes is everything. Thank you, thank you. (How can the soul after death relive in another person? How can you tell who he/she was before?) Yes. Sometimes when we were very young, like from the age of... when we were first born until the age of three or four, sometimes we remember the past existence. And that's the only way you can tell yourself if you remember. Nobody else can prove it to you. If you don't remember, it's OK. No need, because God says take care of today is enough, no need to worry about the past and the future. Sometimes we, as a part of God, come down to this world again and again to have different things to do, different experience, and this is all right. Because God can do everything, God can send back again, or God doesn't send again, so when we are sent back again for a special purpose, we say that we come back. But actually, there is no such thing as coming back because we never go anywhere. We are always with God. We are never away from God. It's just sometimes we are too distracted by physical survival. We lost contact. That's all. So whenever we say we reincarnate, that doesn't mean really reincarnation. It's just a different jump in a long, long eternal life process to have a different experience in a different department of God's creation. Just like we go from Europe to Asia, we go from Turkey to Egypt, from Egypt to Israel, Israel to South Africa. Our life is a constant change, constant re-experience and recreating what we want to know. And the soul doesn’t reincarnate in a body. The soul covers a body or envelops a body, or embraces a body or a physical anything, being, in order to experience in a different dimension. So, when we leave one physical being or one pole and go to another, we call that "death" or "reincarnation." Actually, it's not. The soul is always free. And the soul can go from one place to another, one body to another - anytime. So, the soul is not inside the body actually. That's why all the Bibles told us that we are part of God because we are never apart from God. We just choose to cling to one subject or another in order to have a different identification, a different experience that we call this is Mr. So-and-So, Mrs. Ching Hai, Mrs. Smith, Mr. John. You see, can you... Did I make myself clear? Oh, OK, I’ll explain again. It's difficult, but it's also easy. Look. For example, OK, just an example, suppose God is a big, big, big whole being like this, big one, and in this God whole being Hes encompasses everything, all the things that Hes created or not yet created. Hes is everything compacted in there. That is God, OK? Right.And then within this, there are different things that Hes created already. So now, in order to be individualized, one part of God occupies this, another part occupies that, another part occupies this, OK? So, the part of God that is surrounding this yellow paper calls himself a yellow paper, and the part of God that is in the vicinity of this red pen calls himself a red pen.All right, you understand? But all is enveloped inside God, all is God, nothing else, including… oh, sorry, love, including the devil that you have asked me (about). Yes. He is there to tell us, "Don't do this, do this." He's there to make you strong. By resisting him, you're strong. If you listen to him, you have to try again. So you sit there. God envelops you. You are Mr. John. I sit here. I am all God-enveloped myself, too, and call myself Mr. Whatever, Mrs. Whatever, for example. All right?So that's why all the religions told us that we are one, we are an essence of God, we are part of God. We are God! Yes, easy. So, this thing comes and goes, destroyed, but the God is the same all the time. This thing is red, this thing is yellow, but the God - all the same, this one is always the same. All right? Did I make myself understood? Thank you, thank you, thank you. OK, so the reincarnation never really occurs. Never. Just, you see, the God Almighty power always exists, never dies, but this thing may die, may kaput, damaged, and then, so the God here is empty, and then he probably moves around within this God, and then occupies this one and becomes yellow paper. Yes, OK, thank you. (Every day You see our Father?) Oh, yes. (You can?) Every day. You can. A lot of people who I show them how to do it, they see, too. The Father is always there, why don't we see Hirm? (I don’t know.) OK, you don’t see, but if you sit there, can I see you if I look at you? Of course, I can see you. But if I look over there, of course, I don't see you. We don't look, that's why. We look in a different direction. I’ll tell you where to look and you'll see God. Very simple.

Pacifying the Mind, Part 4 of 9, Nov. 20, 1999

So, if you think you have not heard God, and you are not satisfied that the angel has come visit you, or the messenger from God, from Heaven has talked to you, then maybe I can help you. There is a way to still the mind, then you can contact the messenger of God directly, the Supreme Master, whoever that is, OK?Many of you, some of you, when you pray very hard, you also have an experience of Heaven. But some of you have not been able to calm the mind, to still the mind, so maybe you have not heard the angel speak or the messenger of God speak. So, if you think you have not heard God, and you are not satisfied that the angel has come visit you, or the messenger from God, from Heaven has talked to you, then maybe I can help you. There is a way to still the mind, then you can contact the messenger of God directly, the Supreme Master, whoever that is, OK? Yes, I'm speaking on behalf of the Supreme Master Ching Hai. In fact, it's not me who speaks. Some people ask me what's the name of the “Supreme Master Ching Hai.” It's the Chinese name for the Father, our God. “Ching Hai” means the ocean of Love, means God. Just we call Hirm differently. Just like when you love your woman, or you love your husband, you call him “honey,” “sweetheart,” “sugar pie,” “apple pie,” or “my loved one,” “my own,” “my self,” “my other half,” “my better half.” It's just the same one person.And that's why sometimes the religious people misunderstand each other because one call Hirm "Allah," the other call Hirm "Almighty," and the other call Hirm "the real Buddha," the Zen call Hirm "the real face," "the real Father." Everyone calls his beloved in a different name, and that is all right. We have only one Father, one God. I have a joke for you. Sometimes in some countries they have a racist problem, like OK, the black men are allergic to the white men, the white men are allergic to the black men. So, there was a black man who was looking for an apartment and he liked one apartment very much. He's desperate for one but he couldn't go there because all the white people, they don't let him in. So he prayed to God, said, "Please, help me, I want to get an apartment over there, but they are racist, they don't let me in, all the white people." So God said, "Oh, forget it, forget it, my love, if I go there, I couldn't go in myself." So the black man was very surprised, said, "Why? God, You are almighty. You can go anywhere. Why couldn't You go there?" Please laugh after I finish the joke, OK? So you know what God said? Any guess? (Because I’m black.) No, Hes didn't say that. Yes, maybe, maybe Hes is black, but I don't think so. Hes is all colors. That's why we're all colors, come from Hirm. God said that, "Oh, I cannot go there, because if I go there, they will check my religious record and they will ask me what religion I belong to and I don't know what to say." Suppose God comes here, it's true like that, it's a joke but it could be true. Suppose God appears in front of us right now, shall we call Hirm Muslim or call Hirm Catholic, or shall we call Hirm Buddhist, or shall we call Hirm Christian ... what? So, in my knowledge, we have only one Father, and that's enough already. And in order to know our own Father we must still the mind. We must calm down and we must find time to contact Hirm. And at least to contact Hiers representative, Hiers angels, and then we can pose direct questions to Hirm and get direct answers. If we couldn't find the answer today, we find it tomorrow. If not tomorrow, the next day. And if you have found the answer already, congratulations! If you have not found the direct contact with God's kingdom, I have learned a way and I could share it with you without any obligation, without any cost, without any string at all. You can always be welcome and try. And it works immediately. (It is very difficult.) It's not difficult, madam. You see, I can do it, you can do it. OK, I guess you want to ask me a lot of questions, so should I just be quiet now, and then you ask me, then I can explain more of what you think you want to know. And then after that, if you want to, if YOU want to, we can show you. Thank you. Do you have any question yet? It's not difficult, right? For some. Yes. You should write it down please, because we have microphone, (but) technically it’s impossible. Yes. (He asks You what You think about the devil. He makes us do something quite bad, what do You think about it? He's asking.) Yes, we should not listen to him, that's what I think. You are the Master. You should not listen to the devil. Make him listen to you. (We believe only God,) Yes. (but Buddhist people believe only five heads, like that five heads, like that three-headed stone. Why? Can You explain?) Three hand like this? I don’t understand. (Three-headed stone Buddha, everybody worships that.) Oh, you mean the statue. Yes. (Yes. Buddhist people, why don't they believe God?) Well, everybody believes God in their own way that they think is the best. But sometimes what they think is the best is not always the best. So that's why I'm trying to help them to see a better way if they want to. If they don't want to, that's also their right. We are desperate in this world. We suffer so much, we are so far away from God's connection, so we grab on anything, anything - a stone, a statue, a cross, a whatever - to hope that God will answer our questions. But there is a better way. It's a direct way and people don't know. But still, when people pray to a statue, or pray to a stone, God knows also. And that's why God sends other prophets or Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) to tell people that, “This is the way. Don't do that, don't do this. Do this.” The Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) came to show an example, like, “OK, you have to still your mind, you sit quiet, alone.” Don't have to go in the cave, but in your small “cave-room,” and make it a cave, make it a complete recluse for yourself, and then you pray. Truly God will hear and you will hear God. God always hears, just we don't hear. So now it's our problem to still our mind, to discard all the nonsensical thinking all the time in the mind so that we can hear the voice of the messenger of God, like the Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) did. He came to do that. He was a Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him). He didn't have to do that, but He did that to make an example that, to contact God, we have to still the mind. That's why in the Qur’an it is said that all religions belong to God anyhow. Yes, the first page. Because why? Because when people pray sincerely to God - doesn't matter in which name - Hes knows that is prayed to Hirm because Hes is God. Hes doesn’t discriminate, “Why don't you call my name Mr. So-and-So? You have to call my name this.” No, Hes is God. Hes is the Father. If you call Hirm “Almighty,” it's good; if you call Hirm “Allah,” Hes is happy, because “Allah” means also almighty in English. And Buddha means enlightened, it means God in English. Just we did not translate and we make so much trouble. “Christ” means the power of God, same thing. Right, I guess we should have only one language.

Pacifying the Mind, Part 3 of 9, Nov. 20, 1999

Pacifying the Mind, Part 3 of 9, Nov. 20, 1999

I greet you in the name of the Prophet Muhammad, Peace Be Upon Him, and God Hirmself, our Father. May God bless you so much to heal whatever sorrow that’s still felt while we are in this physical existence.(I wish you all a good evening. I leave the speech to Supreme Master Ching Hai.) (Good night to you all. I leave the microphone to Master Ching Hai.) How do you say "good evening" in Turkish? (İyi akşamlar (good evening).) İyi akşamlar? (Yes.)Oh, very easy. I greet you in the name of the Prophet Muhammad, Peace Be Upon Him, and God Hirmself, our Father. May God bless you so much to heal whatever sorrow that’s still felt while we are in this physical existence. We also share with you the suffering of thousands of people in the recent disaster. Our hearts are with you. We prayed for you. We did pray for you in a very far land, in every land apart from Turkey, away from Turkey. We did pray for you and for the whole world, too, including Turkey. We have also sent comfort in the form of material assistance, but we pray more so that God will send the real comfort in spirit to your country and your people, my people too. I am very excited to be in your country because this is my first time and your country is so beautiful, so beautiful. When I was in Germany I knew a lot, a lot of Turkish people who lived there, who worked there. And they are all so very, very generous, very hospitable to me. But I only knew the humble, humble class people, and they work very humbly, and they're very humble and they trust God; they are not the arrogant kind. And because of their humble position and in a strange land - not only in Germany, I know them in France and in England, and even in Holland - and because of their humble position, they are far away from home, and they have to work in a strange land, and sometimes the language is not their basic skill, and they have sometimes hardship. And so people, because they are so humble, so humble. I think the Turkish people are humble because they fear God, not because they fear any other people in that land. But they have been sometimes misunderstood because they are very humble people. They're humble because they pray five times a day. They just remember God. They forget to be so fierce in this competitive world so they did not give an impression of very aggressive people, But I know them through friendship, and I know that they are really great, and they are so generous and so hospitable. Whatever they have, they share with you. But because they're so humble, sometimes some of the native people do not give them due respect because they don't know they have come from such a great country, such a great history, great culture. Before I came here, I also did not know that. I did not have enough time to study your history. I just know it recently, and I also did not know that my friends, the Turkish people that I knew came from such a great heritage. You have two of the seven wonders in the world. You have so many other famous things that people don’t even know, including myself. I did not know. I wanted to say that the people who went out of Turkey and work in the foreign land, they did not represent a complete picture of your culture as a Turkish race, as a great historical race. So, I was so surprised when I landed in your capital and went around a little and see all these great things that are still left over in your country. It's sad. But it's OK. The joy is more, doubled because I am surprised. Similarly, we are the children of God, the Qur’an told us that, the Bible, every bible told us that, every religious bible told us that we are children of God. But we don't really have a good impression by being here. Because we are too busy for survival, we have forgotten our great Home. Only some lucky people truly can have direct contact with our original Heaven. Many people still have lost the connection with our Father. And we look upon each other as just a mere mortal, a mere human being, and we have forgotten that we are brothers and sisters, and we are truly heavenly beings. But in some moment of our deep prayers - I mean really real prayers, not mechanical prayers - we do have glimpses of Heaven. And that's when we know God really exists, Heaven really exists, and we feel so blessed, so happy that we could not even talk in human language about this happiness. Just like I heard people talked about Turkey and I know Turkish people, but I didn't imagine your country is so beautiful. And when you come here, you feel different, you feel the excitement, the newness of discovery. But when you are in America or Germany, you heard of Turkey, maybe you don't even want to go. Similarly, we heard of Heaven, we heard of God, we heard of the angels, but we thought we normal people cannot see them, only the Prophet or the disciples of the Prophet can see them. But we can see them. (Why?) Why? Because we can. There is a way. There is a way to ascend to Heaven while living. Just like everything else, like I come to Turkey, I take an airplane and later, I finish, I go back home. If I have money, I have visa, I can come back to Turkey again, come back home again, come back to Turkey again if I like, go back home again. All I have to do is go to the airline, the correct airline, pay the correct money and go to Turkey. And if I don't do anything unlawful that breaks the law of your country, I could stay for a while and come back again and again. Similarly, we could go to Heaven, come back, go to Heaven, come back. But we don't go with the physical body; we go with the spirit. Just like when you sleep, you leave your body, you don't even know the body exists. Sometimes you have a dream, you think you go somewhere. Some people even sleepwalk. And similarly, we could consciously leave this physical temple for a while and go contact the spirit in a spiritual world with our same spirit like their spirit, and the angel will take us there, if we know how. The reason the Prophet, Peace Be Upon Him, told us to contemplate, to pray to God five times a day is that if you pray hard enough, long enough many times, there is a chance that you might have a glimpse of Heaven, that you might be calm enough to contact the angels or the messenger of God - the invisible one - and then they will take us to Heaven, they will show us the way, but we must calm the mind, we must forget the whole world while praying. That is the real, real prayers. That's what the Prophet Muhammad, Peace Be Upon Him, did in the cave. He calmed His mind, He forgot everything – His possession, His wife, His work, His success, His money - everything. He forgot His body. And that's how He can elevate Himself to the level of angels in spirit. And that's how He can contact the angel in spirit, and that's how He can get the message from God. The same, we have to do, we can do.

Pacifying the Mind, Part 2 of 9, Nov. 20, 1999

“(We think of it as a practice that can enhance your normal or your daily religious practice. So, for Muslims, those of you that are devout Muslims, I feel that this practice can be a benefit to namaz or your daily ritual. And so, it shouldn't be thought of as a separate thing or a conflicting practice to your normal Islamic practice. And ‘God cannot be contained in words.’ So, we feel that the ideal method for human beings is to go beyond words, go beyond language, to seek God within. And this is not to disparage or say that the written scriptures like the Qur’an are not beneficial, but that they enhance each other. The ritual practice of Sufism or Islam can be enhanced by this inner directedness.)” “(But when I met Master Ching Hai, I felt that I had met my true Teacher. And from that point about five years ago, my life has changed dramatically. I've improved myself inwardly, and as Master says, one of the main goals of the practice is enhancing your compassion, your ability to love others.)” “(What I feel in my case has been the best or the most advantageous benefit from this practice, is increased ability to love and to show compassion. So, I think you too, as devout Muslims or whatever belief you have, can through this practice, enhance that ability to love which, as the flyer we distributed said, ‘The only religion is Love.’)” “(Well, that's another major benefit of this method, is to gain more detachment from physical objects or possessions.)” “(Students occasionally will have a problem with the way things are going or the administration will have a problem. But these types of things too are diminished. The emphasis, the power of those problems is diminished by this practice. Your ego is made smaller.)” “(Master is going to give you the main message tonight. So I think, I'm sorry, but I think we should probably play the video and then Master will be able to give you all the… I think, often times your questions are totally answered after you hear Her.)”

“(The main teaching that Hes has been helping me through is to love each other with unconditional love, which is what Hes is doing with everybody.)” “(Her unconditional love has reached all the corners of the world, helping the needy people, the poor people, the people in the earthquakes, in the floods, in any disaster, She tries always Her best to send help.)” “(She's been working. Her main income is especially to share with all the people. This is a non-profit organization. So, whatever She makes with Her own work is just to help everybody, to share with everybody. Besides with Her great humor, She's always making people so heart-lifted. It doesn't matter how you feel, doesn’t matter how down you feel, you just remember Her, you just remember Her teachings and Her examples, and then you can live a very, very peaceful and happy life.)” “(What I learned from Master, which I could not learn from the Bible, is I found God in here. My wife found her God inside her or her Buddha. It’s the same one.)” “(And now we know the religions aren’t different. It’s we who make it different. There's only the religion of God. Or is it Allah or whoever you want to call Hirm.)” “(We don't have to follow Her. Anytime we want, we can walk away from Her. But the way I feel now, it's like if you left your baby and walked away from it. It just breaks your heart.)”“(And based on my experience with many, many other methods, this method has been the most powerful and most effective in raising my spiritual level. And my belief is that the reason for that is that the method is powerful, but the Master’s level is so high that She is able to raise us to a higher level.)”

The Wisdom Eye – The Most Mystical Chakra: Selections from “Coloring Our Lives” by Supreme Master Ching Hai (vegan), Part 2 of 2

The Wisdom Eye – The Most Mystical Chakra: Selections from “Coloring Our Lives” by Supreme Master Ching Hai (vegan), Part 2 of 2

The Source of Eternal Happiness “The only source of happiness is inside. So whenever you meditate, try to get in touch with that source. It’s only one little center inside the so-called brain. It’s there, physically inside the brain. Every little nerve and center is responsible for something in our being — psychologically, emotionally and physically. And another one is spiritually responsible for our enlightenment and eternal happiness. There is a little center, almost in the middle of the brain physically. From here (Master points to the middle of Her forehead) and here (the top of the head) go inward into two-thirds of the head. The wisdom eye center must be there, really inside. So when you look with the wisdom eye, it means you are trying to make contact with that center. Even just sometimes, when you make contact there, in just a matter of seconds you immediately feel different.” “Always, always, be attentive; otherwise, it’s easy to just pass a day, pass two days, pass three days, pass your whole life in self-illusion, in bad habits, and not get into a higher level of consciousness, not be able to understand the deeper meaning of spiritual life.” Always Focus on the Wisdom Eye “If you’re already thinking of the wisdom eye, that means you yourself are reminded of the spiritual center of wisdom and enlightenment. And, if you yourself remember that, of course your atmosphere will be spiritual. So that person will of course benefit from you. It’s just like standing next to a fountain: Even though you don’t jump directly into it, some water will sprinkle on your face and make you feel cool. Similarly, if you stand next to a person who’s spraying perfume, even though you don’t spray it on yourself, you will still have some scent on you. So you’re important. Whatever you are is what the other person will receive. That’s why, whenever we remember anything about the spiritual center, about our true Self, the person next to us will benefit. That’s how it works.”

The Wisdom Eye – The Most Mystical Chakra: Selections from “Coloring Our Lives” by Supreme Master Ching Hai (vegan), Part 1 of 2

“Coloring Our Lives” is a collection of quotes and spiritual teachings of Supreme Master Ching Hai. In response to the questions of Truth seekers, Supreme Master Ching Hai provides insights that are both spiritual and practical. Her suggestions light the way to creating balance between daily spiritual practice and being an intelligent, talented “artist of life.” As Supreme Master says, “While making good use of every minute of our time to lead a fulfilled, positive, happy life, in the process of learning, we can also use the very lively, animated and joyous spirit derived from spiritual practice to color our lives!” The Most Mystical Chakra “The third eye is the true eye of our being. ‘If thy eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of Light.’ That is the third eye. Mostly we see the physical manifestation of God with the physical eyes. But if we want to see God as a non-manifested being, we use the spiritual eye, which we call the third eye. In the physical body, the connection between Heaven and Earth is in that third eye center. And actually, during meditation, sometimes you see that eye, a single eye, just like your eye but just one single eye. That’s called the third eye, or spiritual eye, or wisdom eye or heavenly eye. Whatever, it’s the same.” “If you concentrate on the wisdom eye, everything intensifies. This is the center of all chakras, the headquarters of our being. So once we concentrate there, we free ourselves and we intensify everything. You love even better, and you understand things better. Your food tastes better. And you work better; you think better; you create things better, you paint better, and so on. Everything intensifies.” “Actually, the soul doesn’t need the eye to see, doesn’t need ears to hear, doesn’t need any sensory apparatus to perceive things. That’s the highest Truth, that’s the highest perception, without having to use any fleshly instruments. That is our soul power, the Supreme Master within us, which knows all things, hears all things in all ways, everywhere.”
