Because dogs, they understand words by pictures. Whatever words you speak, it forms a photo, a picture, in their mind. And that’s how they understand you perfectly clear, and no mistake about it. Every language, every word, has a symbol, invisibly. So that’s why I also tell you, be also pure in speech, yes? Because, it does have an impact on the people who hear it, and it does have a real meaning.
When I first adopted Happy, you know, one of my dogs, the fat lady... We call her “Gordita,” Spanish for, you know, well-built... well-built woman! When I first saw her, she was in a small cage. And I don’t know, I just said, “OK, I’ll come back for you.” And when I came back, she was gone! She was not in her cage anymore! Nobody knew where she was. They all didn’t even know where she was. The whole staff didn’t know. We had to go around the whole big...
You know, that was an American pound, dog pound. It’s very big and oh, thousands of them in there! I had to go everywhere (and) look for her. The only thing I remembered about her, apart from (the) others, was that she had a curly tail. But there were so many curly tails in there! And so it was very difficult for us to recognize (her). Not too many, but many enough. And so many different... They housed them in different areas. So, we went all over, looking, looking! Oh, I almost gave up! I thought somebody took her already, and... But I already reserved her. They didn’t want to give that day. They said, “Come back,” because probably late, or weekend, or whatever. I don’t know, I can’t remember. And then when we came back, we couldn’t find her. Oh, that was a panicking! And then we went around, around, around, and looking everywhere.
And then one of my assistants spotted her because of the curly tail, and then remembered her. But then, he didn’t even tell me anything. And I’d been still going, looking around again. And later at the end, I was almost crying, and he said, “I think there’s a curly tail in that room. Maybe it’s her.” I said, “You are kidding! Why didn’t you tell me?” Then it was her! Because when she saw me, she jumped right away. Not all the dogs were jumping. Only her! Because she remembered - I promised her that I’d come back, and she knew that! And of course, I recognized her when I saw her. And she jumped, jumped, jumped all over the place, trying to get out to me, wagging her tail all the way.
And then when they brought her out, oh my God, she strangled herself against that kind of... They don’t have a proper leash in the center. They just tied a string around her neck, and she almost strangled herself, her tongue was coming out... but she was going to jump to come to me. Just me! And the whole room was full of people, women and men alike, Asians, Americans, they all looked. It’s not like I was the only one this size or this kind of race. And then she only jumped to me, because she remembered me. Just one word, just one promise! So believe me, they know. They know!
You don’t have to be a psychic or a dog talker to understand their language. They understand you. They understand English, Russian, German, French - whatever you speak to them, they understand very well. Because dogs, they understand words by pictures. Whatever words you speak, it forms a photo, a picture, in their mind. And that’s how they understand you perfectly clear, and no mistake about it.
Every language, every word, has a symbol, invisibly. So that’s why I also tell you, be also pure in speech, yes? Because, it does have an impact on the people who hear it, and it does have a real meaning. It does form a picture, and it does send some energy, bad or good, to the environment that you are walking around in. So, that’s why we have to be pure in speech and actions and thought as well. Everything has a reason, OK? I am not trying to control you or anything, I am just telling you all the scientific evidence and scientific logic behind the precepts that we keep. Everything we think also forms sometimes a picture. The people can see it as well. Some people can, not everybody can. But nevertheless, it will be around in the ether. And people can perceive it. And the energy does stay. It depends on how strong you mean it at the time of saying it or thinking it, it will last longer or it will last shorter. But it will last! Sometimes it lasts for a long time, almost forever.
You hear about the curse from generation to generation? It’s true! It is true! It doesn’t have to be a witch to form this kind of curse energy. It can come from some person with strong hatred or strong love or strong revenge ideas in his head. When he says it with all his mighty power, then it will come true, whether it’s a curse or the blessing. That’s why sometimes you come to a priest or some holy person and say, “Please bless me.” “Give me some blessing.” Because it does work. It’s not superstition! Maybe in the future we do not need television or anything. We can just tune in wherever we want, and the picture comes out. And that’s what telepathy is all about.
Dogs, animals, they have more telepathic power than we do, because we lost it. Many of us lose it, because through the complication of survival network. We have to think too much in a physical term, and do too much in the physical field, and think too much in the physical obligation, because of survival. So, we are more and more physical every day, and that’s how we forget the telepathic self, you know, the telepathic ability that we had. Some people still retain it - minimum or maximum, or half-half. Sometimes, you seem, in some instance, you seem to have understood what your partner was saying, without his speaking it aloud. That is when you collect a little scattered ability of psychic power that you have. Now and again, it comes out. And that is true. And can you imagine if we didn’t lose (it) all, we have it all the time? But it’s also good in a way, because if you have that power, we don’t always hear the good, but always the bad, also! And it will be, you know, a little bit too much for us. Yeah, too much. Why do we talk so much about this thing? What else? What else is there? Yeah, yeah, talking, talking. Keep talking, (and) then I have ideas for you. Yeah, there!
(Good evening, Master!) Evening! Afternoon. (I’m a new initiate. On the 2nd of October, I was initiated. And before I was initiated, I used to practice meditation anyway.) Yeah. (I made a promise to Lord Krishna that if I was sent a true Master, I would do something, which is actually try and touch my Master’s feet. So...) Oh, God! (That is to pay respect to my Master. Now, Master, I don’t...) Big deal! (I know it might not be a big deal, but do I have to fulfill this promise?) No! (OK. Because it’s been bugging me.) I was thinking, all ears, I was thinking, “OK, I might build a temple for the Lord Krishna, or to make a meditation house for everybody or something.” Touch Master’s feet! My foot! Are you Indian, by the way? Indian born? (No, I’m not Indian.) What are you? (I’m Jamaican, I’m Western Indian.) West? Also, you’re Indian! (But I just like reading the Gita. [Bhagavad Gita.]) Yeah, yeah. It’s fine, it’s fine. You’re from West Indies, OK. Somehow Indian, anyway.
I am telling you what: The Indian people, when they see a respectable person, maybe a king or a good minister, or the priest or the monk, or a master of any kind, they touch their feet anyway, you know, to show respect. And that’s that. So your promise, it sounds like a... I don’t know what it is! My foot, what kind of promise! (No, it’s just to show respect, if I was given a true Master.) I don’t know, how do you know I’m a true Master? So, that’s the question hanging in the air. (I believe that You are, in my heart.) Or what if you’re to find another truer Master tomorrow, then you have to touch feet again! Just save it! (No, You are the true Master!) Save it until you are sure. You’ve just been initiated not long, right? (Yes.) OK, so save it until you are so sure. (I’m sure! I’m sure! I’m sure You are!)
I mostly don’t encourage people to do anything respectful to me. Most people, they want to do that: Number one, they pay respect, number two, they get the blessing. So, your promise is like a harvest. It’s not like anything at all, that I could feel pleased to give it to you. It’s your promise, not mine! I didn’t promise Lord Krishna to give you my foot to touch, did I? So, I don’t have to fulfill this promise, do I? No? If you have some greater promise, I probably would be impressed, and I would help you to fulfill it. But this kind of promise is nothing, no big deal. It sounds more selfish to me. Right? (Yes.) So, forget it!
Some other time, you know, other day, when some guy came and touched my feet, I let him. But not you! Any other things? Yes. Give him the microphone.
(Happy New Year, Master!) Happy New Year again? (Yes.) Fine! (It’s very good to meet You in person, finally.) Yeah, finally. (Yes. I wanted to ask You, do You have any tips for when I am meditating, how can I get the most, the best quality out of my mediation, to make my meditation as deep as possible?)
Keep trying, keep trying! Practice makes a master. Keep trying! Difficult, because the world is too turbulent, there’re too many things distracting us all the time. But the thing is not about success or not, it’s about trying. Trying! That is training your perseverance, your sincerity. That’s what counts. Because God doesn’t always pick up on the one who makes the most out of the meditation but the sincerity. Just walk one step, and the 99 steps will be met by Heaven. Just trying, that’s it! Try your best, that’s all! Try your best! (Thank You.) You’re welcome. Anyone else?
I told you many times, try your best to do your meditation. And if you want to help yourself, then help others. Help your brothers and sisters, help to spread spiritual news. That is the best to help yourself. Material help is not the greatest gift that we can offer to other people. Spiritual gift is the best. Yeah, sister? Somebody behind there or? No? Yeah, yeah, here, the blue one.
(Hi, Master. I just wanted to say firstly, You look absolutely beautiful, as always. Very beautiful!) Oh, thank you, thank you! The makeup does help! (It’s just quite amazing to actually have You in real life, sitting in front of me.) So you think I am not real, kind of? (You know what I mean... I wanted to ask a question: Sometimes I have a little bit of difficulty in my concentration, where sometimes I can concentrate better than others, but sometimes where my concentration is scattered. And I just wanted to know if You could help me to find the best way to try and concentrate better, so that my concentration is more strong and one-pointed. Because I find sometimes I have difficulty with that.)
I know, I know, I know. They all do. Ask them! You are not the only one. You can say “we.” You don’t have to say “I.” You know, don’t worry! It’s just, the concentration doesn’t always depend on you alone. It depends on what you have just eaten, even! Or whom you have just met. Or which television show you have just seen. Yeah? (OK.) Or what magazine you have just read. Yes, it’s like that. It’s very tricky! Or, wherever you have just been! You know, the environment, the energy of that place. It is always like that.
So just try your best, that’s all I can say, yeah? (OK.) Try your best, and don’t worry, OK? You are already liberated, believe me. Third Level, above, so don’t worry about it. All of you here, OK? (Thank You very, very much!) So, at least Third Level. All of you, at least Third Level, all right? All right. So, you don’t worry about it. (Thank You very, very much.) Now you can... (You) don’t have to run so much, just walk, OK? (I love You, Master, with all my heart. Thank You very, very much!) Love you too, baby! Love you! Thank you! Thank you for being a good kid. Thank you for trying your best. I know you try your best, and I am very pleased. Cry with what? Happy, or...? (Yes, very happy!) OK, replenish yourself with some liquid. Otherwise, you’ll dehydrate. Crying too much, that dehydrates. (Thank You very much, Master!) You’re welcome, baby. (I love You so much.) Sit there. Sit here, sit here, sit here! Sit here. Yeah, right here. OK, just a little bit there, or maybe there, so she doesn’t have to... You know, the camera, that’s all. Anyone else want to cry openly? I have only one apple juice. I have one more juice there. Yes?
(I did want to cry, because it’s been like... I knew You were here, but I couldn’t be with You on New Year’s Eve.) That’s all right. (And I felt like I’ve climbed mountains to see You today. Master, I feel I’ve been to the Himalayas and back. It’s the turmoil inside.) What happened? (Just obstacles, family,) I know, I know. (everything!) Talking about it. (And yesterday, I went to the London Center, I just dropped everything, I just had to go, and then You didn’t come. So, I thought, “My God.”) I tried yesterday. (I know, I know.) I tried yesterday. Your obstacles are my obstacles. Believe me or not? I had been crying all day yesterday for you guys. (And today, I knew in my heart that You’re in London, but I would see You somehow. I knew.) Then it’s good! Telepathy! (I knew!) Then it’s good! (It’s just... I’m overwhelmed, and I’m in ecstasy. I’ve got no emotions, but yet I’m full of emotions.) Understand. (I can’t explain it. You know how I feel.) Yeah, I know! (And it’s just wonderful!)
Phew! Yesterday, talking about obstacles, oh, I’m not telling you! (I know, I can feel it.) It’s more difficult for me to see you than you to see me, even! (Yes.) I have to swim also upstream, you know, it’s not just you! (I feel I have climbed mountains to be with You today.) I’ve climbed two mountains! Yes, we both... (Inside, inside!) I know, I know, I know. We both have to climb mountains to be with each other, believe me! It’s not that easy for me, either! Even (if) I’m already at the front door, something would happen to let me have to go away. And I know your heart is aching, and that’s why I cry sometimes. You know, I cry for you! I cry because I know your feeling. Not just your feeling, I mean the people, my people’s feeling. I understand, I understand, baby. I had been crying almost all day yesterday. Yes! It’s not for me. I need nothing. (Inside I know, it’s just...) Yes! In a while. Are you OK now? Happy? Good!
