Selections from The Holy Science by Swami Sri Yukteswar Giri (vegetarian), Chapter 1, Part 1 of 2

India – home to many great spiritual Masters. One such great personage is Swami Sri Yukteswar Giri. Paramahansa Yogananda described Sri Yukteswar as “softer than the flower, where kindness is concerned; stronger than the thunder, where principles are at stake.” Today we are going to present to you “The Holy Science,” requested by Saint Babaji and written by Swami Sri Yukteswar, revealing the basic unity of Supreme Truth behind all names and forms, especially between the Bible and Bhagavad Gita. “How God is comprehended. As man is the likeness of God, directing his attention inward he can comprehend within him the said Force and Feeling, the sole properties of his Self – the Force Almighty as his will, Vasana, with enjoyment, Bhoga; and the Feeling Omniscient as his Consciousness, Chetana, that enjoys, Bhokta.”

I-Kuan Tao - The Three Treasures

12:31

I-Kuan Tao - The Three Treasures

I-Kuan Tao means Consistent Way or Persistent Way. I-Kuan Tao is also known as Tian Dao. I-Kuan Tao is a Chinese salvationist religion that emerged from the Xiantiandao, (“Way of Former Heaven”) tradition in the late 19th century, in Shandong, China. I-Kuan Tao is a combination of spiritual ideas based on Confucius Teachings, and a deep respect and belief in the Lao Mu, the Eternal Primordial Mother and Maitreya, the future Buddha. In I-Kuan Tao, the three treasures are: Xuan Kwan (The Mystic Portal or Heavenly Portal), Wu-tzu-Jen-ching (Divine Mantra) and Ho Tong (The Covenant or Symbolic Seal). These three treasures are spiritual practices that are capable of keeping the believers safe and protect them, as well as enable the believers to reach sainthood. We will now share with you, “I-Kuan Tao – The Three Treasures.” “The first Treasure is the Mystic Portal. It is the spiritual nexus of your being. If the eyes are the windows to the soul, then the portal is the proper doorway.” “It is the door to the soul. When it is closed, the soul cannot be in touch with anyone. Once this doorway has been pointed and opened by an ordained master in the initiation ritual, you can use it in everyday life. In times of danger, it will help you avoid disaster, and keep yourself safe.” “The second Treasure is the Wordless True Sutra. It consists of sounds without words. It resonates with us deep in the heart. It is beyond the ordinary sounds and writings of the material world, for it is a mantra of power. This Treasure should not be said aloud or written down.” “Using the Wordless True Sutra will let you tap into more of your potential than you ever thought possible. If obstacles in life are like the morning fog, then the Wordless True Sutra is like the sun. When the sun comes out, the fog dissipates into nothingness, and you can see everything clearly.” “The third Treasure is the Hand Seal. The central meaning of this Treasure is nurturing love. It is a gesture where the left hand holds the right in a symbolic representation of the tender loving care that you feel when you hold an infant in your arms. The Hand Seal serves as a reminder of the child within us, our original nature beyond good and bad, right and wrong, judgement and criticism. Like the other Treasures, the Hand Seal can shield you from harm. In a crisis, the Hand Seal will help you maintain your safety and reduce your fears, so you can get yourself out of danger. Your fate is literally in your own hands. With the Hand Seal, you are able to not just change your fate, but also create your own destiny.”

From Hinduism’s Holy Vedas: Hymns of the Samaveda, First Part, Book I, Chapter I

From Hinduism’s Holy Vedas: Hymns of the Samaveda, First Part, Book I, Chapter I

Hinduism is believed to be one of the oldest living religions on Earth. The earliest Hindu spiritual text, the Rig Veda, was complied in approximately 900 B.C. Other sacred Hindu scriptures include the Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita, and the Ramayana, among others. One of the most cherished values of Hinduism is “ahimsa,” or non-violence born of respect for all life. We now invite you to listen to an excerpt from Hinduism’s sacred text, the Samaveda, First Part, Book 1, Chapter I. “O Agni, bring us radiant light to be our mighty sustenance, for thou art our visible deity!” To thee, illuminer of night, O Agni, day by day with prayer, bringing thee reverence, we come. Agni is head and height of heaven, the master of the earth is he; he quickens the waters’ seed. Agni, the Sage, the Lord of Strength, hath moved around the sacred gifts, giving the offeror precious things. His heralds bear him up aloft, the God who knows all that lives, the Sun, that all may look on him. Praise Agni in the sacrifice, the Sage whose holy laws are true, the God who drives grief away.”

The Reunion of Souls: Gathering with Association Members after the Lecture, Part 11 of 11

Once you’re beautiful inside, people see you beautiful outside – that is normally the case, yes!…But continue with your practice. Your life is better and better, I need not tell you. I’m just saying that in case somebody doesn’t know yet, they can verify with you. Your life is an example of love and of spiritual blessing; there’s no need to even preach to anybody.I give all the time and I still have a lot; I mean, for me, it’s a lot. What do I need? When I come to see you, of course I wear this. It’s my own design, so it’s for fun. When I am not with you, I just throw this quickly because it’s heavy, I don’t really like it, and I eat maybe once or twice a day, whatever leftover or whatever new. If it’s new, I eat; if it’s leftover, I eat. What can I need? That’s why I still have a lot of money because I don’t spend much, not because I earn more. It’s just like you, you earn just like before, you might even have more kids now than before, but you still have more money, you still feel life is more rich for you than before, feel more satisfied, more than enough, right? Yes! That is the trick.A lot of people who are millionaires, nobody knows, and everybody thinks to be a millionaire is difficult – it’s not! And especially, people who are already millionaires, they keep themselves that way because they are very natural. They are frugal; they don’t even drive expensive new cars. They just buy secondhand cars, so they don’t have to pay luxury tax, for example, and they just drive normal cars. Most millionaires, they don’t drive expensive cars. They drive reasonable, safe cars, cheap even, or anything that’s safer. They don’t really live the way we think millionaires should, because otherwise their money would go fast even if they’re millionaires. So they save a lot; they’re looking for ways to save, like, they go with what kind of car that uses less petrol, or they stay in some neighborhood or some house that they can afford, so that they don’t drain out their savings. A lot of ways, they just save here and there, and their money is always stable, yes. And some people who don’t earn a lot but spend a lot, go with fast cars and all that, they really have a lot, a lot - but a lot of credit, a lot of mortgage and debt!And the millionaire people who drive normal cars, they know how to organize their lives so they won’t be in debt. A lot of millionaires live next door to you, you don’t know, because they don’t flash it around. Yes, they know what they’re doing.They know the value of money and they don’t just over spend it It’s just, they’re naturally that way, and that’s why they become rich. They’re naturally rich, they naturally know how to handle money.And sometimes they win lotto also, of course. But they invest money also. For example, if they earn like $40,000 per year, they put like 15 or 20% aside to invest in the bank. So like in 10 years’, 20 years’ time, they will have hundreds of thousands of dollars, out of just $5,000 or $10,000 they invested, every month they put in the bank.They know how to organize their money – they don’t spend all their earnings, so they can leave some for investment, and then just in no time you become rich. For example, you put $10,000 today, 10 years later, it becomes $50,000 invested in some banks; that is slow, for example. But otherwise, they go and risk, and do their own business and that’s how they become rich faster, but it’s more risky. But that’s life, either you take risks or you just live an ordinary life, very slow, and day to day just earn that much money; but still, if you can manage well, you’re OK.Life is more simple now. Yes, tofu is cheaper than beefsteak, no? Just a little bit different, it’s a piece of tofu instead of this piece of meat. We are healthy; you’re OK. Look at the lady, the MC, she’s so beautiful and she’s a vegetarian (vegan). I told her many times to stand by for photograph. But all of you look good, too, and I am proud of you.You are proud of yourselves. Come out and say, “I am a vegetarian (vegan). Look at me! Right?” That’s good! You’re very beautiful. Just because you don’t put on makeup now so you look less beautiful, but already too beautiful. If you put makeup on, wow, everybody dies! Yeah? Yeah! All your husbands are dying already! You’re getting too beautiful and they don’t want to leave you. Yeah! I know. That’s why some of them are so afraid, uh? When you get initiation, they get so afraid that you might become nuns or something. They love you too much. You look so beautiful, more and more every day. Some husband already left his wife, and after she got initiation, he came back to her, “Wow! How come you’re so beautiful?” He moved back in! Yeah! Yeah! Same with some wife, you know, left already, didn’t want him, and after initiation, come back “Oh, my God! Changed, new man!” Move back again! No problem, yeah! Left the young boyfriend or new boyfriend, already left, and came back to her husband, because he’s more spiritually beautiful now.Once you’re beautiful inside, people see you beautiful outside – that is normally the case, yes! Okay! So try to fight off all these Romeos, yeah? But continue with your practice. Your life is better and better, I need not tell you. I’m just saying that in case somebody doesn’t know yet, they can verify with you. Your life is an example of love and of spiritual blessing; there’s no need to even preach to anybody. They just look at your life, the way you walk your life, the way you present yourself to the world – that is better than thousands of books talking about spiritual issues. You are the book, you are the best example, best doctrine, best religious theory ever presented to anybody.There was a story: In Mexico, there was a Master, a long time ago… He’s very famous. (Topiltzin) Quetzalcoatl, right? He’s Mexican. He told a story to his disciples: there were two men in the same group and one was very, very diligent and looked very religious. He went to church every Sunday, and he was the first one in line in any holy activities and the last one to leave. He never missed any opportunity to go to the church, but he never did anything else.And one guy, he never went to the church, but he went to work every day and he did whatever was his duty, and then whatever he earned, he took care of his family, also gave away to the poor people, and he even gave to the church too, to repair the church. So Quetzalcoatl said that the man who never went to church, that guy is holy, that guy is already a church himself, but the guy who went to church every day, he just went there. Because everybody respected the guy who went to church very much, thinking he was very holy, and spoke lowly of the guy who never went to church, but, actually, he was going out to take care of all of the churches in his area, whatever he could do, and he sometimes worked extra, so that he could earn a little extra money, so then he could give to whoever again. That was what he did every day. So the Master said, “The first one goes to church all right, but the second one, he is the church himself.” Yes!So we can be churchgoers or a church ourselves, it’s up to us. I think all of you are churches, I don’t need to build any churches. People ask me, “Why don’t you have any churches or any temples?” I said, “I don’t need! I have millions of them running around!” I said, “Nowadays, it’s the modern times, fast technology, everything is mobile: mobile phone, mobile home, mobile car, mobile temple...”You are my “mobile temples.” We can communicate any time, go anywhere – very flexible. Brick (buildings) are only fixed at one place; we run around. We are the run-around temples! That is very cool! I was thinking of something else... I forgot. Well, just the same, I guess. What I forgot, it’s gone. Sometimes it comes so fast... the inspiration from the Master, from God, comes so fast, my mouth, can’t talk quick enough. I already talk faster and faster every day already. (If) you’d met me 10 years or 15 years ago, I didn’t talk like this. I talked like you, like, “Hallo, Master! How are you? So nice to see you.” See? Now I talk like, “Hallo! How are you?” “OK? OK!” “Fine! Fine!” I talk quick; I don’t have time. I talk on the phone like that, too, because so many things to do And when I talk with you, sometimes I talk so fast; that’s why we need tapes, so that you can review it and listen, “What did She say before?”Talking, everybody can, but living, living what you talk is harder, and you can do all that: you can talk as well and you can do as well, and that’s what’s great about you. I told you! I told you I came to make you great! Whether I am great or not is of no consequence, because I am only one! A great Master, a great teacher, is not the one who makes himself great but who makes everybody else great. Yes, right! If your students are good, that means you’re good; otherwise, it’s no good – no use! So, whether I am great or not doesn’t matter, as long as you’re great, that’s fine. And if by your grace, by your greatness, I become also great, then thank you very much!I’d like that too, but to tell you honestly, if all the world was enlightened and nobody even ever wanted me, I would be happy just to be a private citizen. It’s cheaper! Less work, less trouble at the airport, just pass through, hmm? And even if the officers, you know, are not nice to you, you can talk back. When you are a Master, you can’t. You have to be gracious, always calm and cool, and be good. Yeah! Fine! Even if it’s not fine, for example, yeah? And you pass through with no problem. Before, I pass through any airport, no problem. Now every time I pass every airport... they check if I have a spare heart, carrying it my pocket, in case. Talking about speaking the truth, do I tell them, “Here, I am the Supreme Master!” “Let me pass quickly! Give me two visas instead of one!” See what I mean? You can say everything; I have to be careful what I say, because I need to come here to see you. Anything I say wrong can jeopardize our meeting. You see what I mean? Can stop me or return somewhere else, for example like that. It’s not very easy. So I would rather not be a Master, not because I don’t love this job, not because I don’t love to see you better. It’s just if I don’t have to be, it would be better even, yeah. If the world is already heaven, everyone is good, then it’s better even, better... Is that all right? (Yes.)If you see me around, don’t run to me and say, “Master this and Master that.” OK? I’m travelling incognito. I forgot what I wanted to say. I guess I’m sleepy. I’ve got to go. OK, guys. Not because sleepy only, but it’s time. I’ve got to do things. What time is it? Three, four? (Twelve.) Twelve only? Really? (It’s still early.) (Too early, Master.) Yes, OK.In the daytime, I don’t sleep that good. But in the daytime, I can’t work very well. I work better at night; it’s so calm. Especially paperwork, all that stuff, it needs... I work better at night; in daytime it’s so difficult. I could, but then it feels different thing. Feels different. Nighttime is more concentration, for me. Some people are “nightier.” We have the tigers who work at night.Hey, Brother Ruan, long time no see. How are you? (Good.) See the way I talk? Talk so fast. I talk faster and faster and still not fast enough. That’s why I forget sometimes what I receive. But it’s OK. You know everything already. There’s nothing that you don’t know. You just want me to talk. You love to hear and see me, that’s all. No matter what I say.Uhm, okay? Babies... I’ll see you around, okay? I get well, and rest a little, I work a little for the next... Okay, you guys? But we’ll see each other. Every time, it’s very difficult to leave you. I want you to know that. I want you to know. Because you think only you… stay with you forever. Believe me, because you’re the best people. Where else should I go? You like to stay with good friends. Everybody does. Me too. But it’s fine, fine. We stay in here, together in here. Thank you. (Thank You, Master.) Love you. (Love You too.) And the flowers, the (vegan) cakes you share. Each one, one. (Yes.) Tong, let’s go.Love you guys. (Thank You, Master. We love You, Master.) Don’t push. Don’t push. Thank you, guys, for working these days. Thank you so much. Yeah. We’ll see each other anytime. Any time you’re ready. See you! Ça va. Yes. (Thank You, Master.) Thank you. (Hi, Master.) Hi. How are you? See you. (See You later, Master.) Thank you for lending me your kids. All right, which way? Hey guys, ciao. See you. Anybody who has not been touched? Come here. Anybody who has not (been) touched? Come quick, quick. Don’t hold too long. (Thank You, Master.) Anyone has not (been) touched? Come here. You are like kids. (Thank You.) You don’t care if it’s like that. Shame on you. OK. Kids. Kids. Big kids. All right, who hasn’t… Anybody else who’s not…? (My husband, he hasn’t. He worried about the work.) Where is he? (He is behind, Master.) Where is he? (He is over there. He is sitting at the back, Master. Brother Sơn! He has been standing there waiting. Come here, Master is here.) Where is he? Where? Where is Sơn? Come here. (Come here, Master is here. He loves You so much.) OK! (It’s been 10 years and I can see You now. Thank you. I was in the refugee camp, Master.) Oh really? Better now? Do you live abroad now? Everybody happy now? (Yes. Thank You.) Anybody I have not touched, come around in the front, so that your heart is happy. Not that you’re not happy. (Thank You, Master.) You are very illogical people. Touch my hand and my heart feels good. Can you believe that? Thank You. All right. (Thank You, Master.) OK, guys. Happy, happy people. Again? (Thank You, Master.) Yes? (We love You.) You touched my hand and my heart’s happy. I remember this all the time. (Master, I’ve got to go.) OK. See you. Thank you. You’re lovely, you’re lovely. Thank you very much. Thank You. Everybody got it, right? (Yes.) OK. (Goodbye, Master. Good night, Master.) I’ll hug you all in my dreams. You are in my heart. (Thank You, Master. Master, see You in Taiwan (Formosa).) See You in Taiwan (Formosa). (See you in Taiwan (Formosa). Have a nice trip. Thank You, Master. Thank You, Master. Bye-bye. Take care. Master, please take care. Bye.)

Selections from The Holy Science by Swami Sri Yukteswar Giri (vegetarian), Chapter 1, Part 2 of 2

“What is needed is a Guru, a Savior, who will awaken us to Bhakti (devotion) and to perceptions of Truth. Any advanced sincere seeker may be fortunate in having the Godlike company of some one of such personages, who may kindly stand to him as his Spiritual Preceptor, Sat-Guru, the Savior.” “Aparokshajnana, the real comprehension. In this state the son of man begins to repent and, turning back from the gross material creation, creeps toward his Divinity, the Eternal Substance, God. When the developments of ignorance are stopped, man gradually comprehends the true character of this creation of darkness, maya, as a mere play of ideas of the Supreme Nature on His own Self, the only Real Substance. This true comprehension is called Aparokshajnana.” “When man thus entering into the spiritual world becomes a Son of God, he comprehends the universal Light – the Holy Ghost – as a perfect whole, and his Self as nothing but a mere idea resting on a fragment of the Aum Light.”

Selections from The Astral City - Chapter 3: Collective Prayer

In “The Astral City,” former medical doctor André Luiz speaks from the afterlife of his awakening and healing within a spiritual society near the Earth’s surface. This story describes not only the continuation of life beyond the physical body, but more importantly how Heaven cares for each and every human soul. The following excerpt from “The Astral City” describes how André Luiz was strengthened spiritually upon his rescue from the Lower Zones. “I felt a profound sense of veneration and awe as I gazed at the soft light streaming through my window. I realized that on Earth I had never looked up at the Sun and raised my thoughts to the One, Who in His infinite mercy, had given it to us to shine on our journey. I was like a blind man who, after living so long in darkness, was blessed with the ability to see the splendor of nature. The first collective prayer I had attended at the Astral City had worked a radical change in me. An unexpected peace filled my soul for the first time in many years of suffering, and my heart, so long empty, was once again filled with hope.”

Selections from the Holy Text of Tibetan Buddhism: Sixty Songs of Milarepa – Songs 11-13, Part 1 of 2

“When that time comes, what else can help but Holy Dharma? Though Dharma is the fount of victory. Those who aspire to it are rare. Scores of men are tangled in The miseries of Samsara (cycle of reincarnation); Into this misfortune born, They strive by plunder and theft for gain. He who talks on Dharma With elation is inspired, But when a task is set him, He is wrecked and lost. Dear patrons, do not talk too much, But practice the Holy Dharma.” “Do you not fear the miseries You experienced in the past? Surely you will feel much pain If misfortunes attack you? The woes of life succeed one another Like the sea’s incessant waves One has barely passed, before The next one takes its place. Until you are liberated, pain and pleasure come and go at random Like passersby encountered in the street. Pleasures are precarious, Like bathing in the sun; Transient, too, as snowstorms Which come without warning. Remembering these things, Why not practice the Dharma?”

Meeting the Master: From Godfré Ray King’s Unveiled Mysteries – The Dominion and Majesty of Ascended Master Saint Germain (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

15:20

Meeting the Master: From Godfré Ray King’s Unveiled Mysteries – The Dominion and Majesty of Ascended Master Saint Germain (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

We will now continue with a selection from Guy Warren Ballard’s, or Godfré Ray King’s book “Unveiled Mysteries.”“Mankind in the unascended state, marvel at these things - but I tell you - it is no more Effort - for us to change the appearance and activity of our bodies - than it is for the ordinary human being - to change his clothes. The unfortunate condition in human consciousness - that keeps individuals in their self-created limitations - is their attitude of mind - which either fears or ridicules - what it does not understand - or what is still worse - in its ignorance says – ‘That is impossible.’ A thing may not be probable - under certain human conditions - but the God-Self - which is the Great ‘Light’ - can change all human conditions - so nothing is - impossible.”“Every individual has the Divine Flame of Life Within him, and - That God-part of Him - has Dominion - wherever he moves in the universe. If he - because of his own mental inertia - will not exert the necessary effort - to reorder his age old habits – of mind and body - he goes on bound by the chains of his own forging - but if he chooses to know the God Within himself - and dares - to give that God-Self - all control of his outer activities - he will receive the knowledge once more of his Dominion over all substance - which has been his from the beginning.”“Thus, does the outer life keep the individual bound to the wheel of necessity, rebirth, continued struggle, and pain until we – let - the ‘Light of the Christ Within’ – illumine and purify us that we may respond only to the Plan of God - Love, Peace, and Perfection for His Creation. This is the kind of lesson - one never forgets - because objective teaching records the experience in the – vision - as well as in the mind. The record in the sight is deeper and - necessarily receives more attention - from the outer activity of the intellect.”“‘There is only one way,’ he went on, ‘to avoid the cosmic wheel of cause and effect - the necessity for re-embodiment - and that is through the conscious effort to comprehend - the Law of Life. One must earnestly seek the God Within - make permanent, conscious contact with that “Inner Self” - and hold firmly to it - in the face of every condition in the outer life. It will be my pleasure and privilege to show you more - but only for the instruction it will bring - to yourself and others.’”

From One Soul to Another, Part 1 of 3

27:43

From One Soul to Another, Part 1 of 3

We now invite you to listen to Supreme Master Ching Hai’s insightful lecture titled “From One Soul to Another, Part 1 of 3” delivered in Yerevan, Armenia on May 15, 1999. “It has been a very challenging job. But God has said that ‘I’ll give you all the power necessary. You just continue to serve Me, everything I will provide.’ This way has worked for me and has woked for many thousands, hundreds of thousands, of other people who have sought God. So I am sure it works for everyone. And God has appeared to all of us alike. Sometimes Jesus also comes to us, sometimes Buddha comes, sometimes other Saints of the past also will grace our lives and instruct us about our daily problem, also our spiritual progress. Hes has blessed us in many, many ways, materially and spiritually, so that we can share what we have with whomever is in need. In our lives, we suffer so much because we have lost contact with the Supreme Power within ourselves, which is the Master of all beings, this God inside us. Because if we lose this contact with God, no matter how many possessions we have in this world, we’ll still never be completely happy.”

The Reunion of Souls: Questions and Answers, Part 7 of 11

The Reunion of Souls: Questions and Answers, Part 7 of 11

There is no person as God; everything is God. We are a part of the whole, and yet the part that makes the whole. So God is the Creator, you see? Hes can make Hirmself into many, many things.(How do the real spiritual experiences in meditation differ from my own fantasies, and visions created by my imagination?) It could be that you think that you’re imagining, but imagining is a daydream; it’s different. If you just daydream about something, or you dream a night dream about something, and that is different. But the spiritual experience is real, just like we are real right now. For example, during a spiritual experience, suppose I sit here, and then I can ascend to Heaven, I can see Jesus, I can see the past Saints, or some present Saints. I can converse with Them and go to a different high level of hierarchy of Heavens and universe in order to do things and learn things, just like I take an airplane and go to your country – as real as that - and then our being will be better every day. And we can use this spiritual knowledge to better our life and the lives of our loved ones, as well as assisting in blessing and elevating the consciousness of the whole planet, and that is spiritual experience because we become different. We know ourselves as Divine beings; we know the whole Self, or maybe at least partial of the higher Self, and we become powerful, we become happy.(After taking the initiation into the Quan Yin Method, if the person can’t continue with the 2.5 hours meditation daily, what will happen?) What will happen if you don’t work 8 hours, and you work only 2 hours? You have less money. You can find a part-time job or a full-time job. Part-time job, you get less money. If you can make it, it’s good for you. Try your best to do as much as you can. The more you do it, the better for you. we are just helping you, telling you which is good. Because the more you do it the more you feel better, and the more you feel better, the more you are encouraged to do more, and you stay stable on the spiritual path.(If a person decides to follow the Quan Yin Method and the family and others can’t accept the person anymore, how does the person overcome this problem?) It’s not possible like that! You just become better; your family accepts you better...more loving. Most of our people, after initiation, their families become better, because they themselves become also better. Maybe some of them, in the beginning...because the family members love them and worry that they might follow some bad people or do some bad things, but later, as you improve yourself, as you show yourself as such a loving, tolerant, and compassionate person, your family members will welcome you more. Make it fast because (Sure.) we need the initiation.(What is God?) Look at your neighbor. That’s God, part of God. God is the Divine Being, the Creator that makes everything possible. That makes us, makes the flowers, makes the fruit, and makes Heaven, makes Earth. That’s our Father. That’s ourselves. We are part of it, part and the whole of it. Just like the ocean, a little part, the drop of the ocean and the whole ocean. Even though a drop of the ocean is just a drop, but without that drop, the ocean is not the ocean. So, we are a drop, but the whole.(What is the essence of life?) Essence of life? Life. Well, there are so many abstract things. The essence of life is God; that is what I am here to show you.(Can you tell what was your before life and your afterlife if you’re an enlightened person?) Who me? How do you… (I think in general.) Oh, mean themselves? (Can you.) Oh, sure, sure, you can. You can. Sure. Many of our fellow practitioners they can, they can see their past and their future also during meditation. Oh, that’s just the small stuff. It’s no big deal. Big deal is to know God, to go to Heaven, to be a wiser person, to be more loving! (This question is with regard to memory. If the answers are in remembering, is God a memory lost? If so, why is that?) Why? Because we have forgotten to remember.(Pretty straight forward. If we are God, who is this person that is so-called God, that is coming down to Earth that everybody talks about?) There is no person as God; everything is God. We are a part of the whole, and yet the part that makes the whole. So God is the Creator, you see? Hes can make Hirmself into many, many things. You see, if the flower smells nice, you’ve got to smell it. See, you can’t keep asking me questions like what the rose smells like when you don’t smell it. I just showed you how to smell the rose before; you try it at home. All right? Then you’ll know God - or, if you want to know more and deeper, you can stay for initiation. God is for you, yourself, to experience, not for me to describe, because it is impossible. It is impossible to describe the love between two persons. You love your boyfriend, your husband, your wife – you can’t describe what it is, but it is there. So even love is so difficult - just the physical love between human beings - is so difficult to describe, how can we describe God?Because human language is not up to God’s standard, but you can experience Hirm, feel the love, feel yourself, feel the wisdom, feel the security, feel yourself at home anywhere you go if you know God. That’s all I can tell you.(When we focus on the center between the eyebrows, do the eyes also focus on the center?) No, no, no! Forget the whole body. Forget the whole body! Just your thinking is concentrated in here only. Don’t pay attention to the eyes or anything in the body.(The reason they ask You is that they said, that the eyes follow the center when they were concentrating.) No, no. They don’t follow. Did you ever see somebody who died? His eyes go up so you see only the white part of the eyes. That’s when he died.We can die like that during spiritual practice. That’s why the Saints say, “I die daily,” “Forsake the flesh so that you can begin to know the spirit,” “Learn to die so that you can begin to live.” When we are in samadhi, our eyes also turn upwards, but we don’t even know it, we’re gone - I mean, gone to a higher dimension, enjoying, but the physical body is just “dead,” and that’s why it reacted like a dead person. So when you come back, you pick up the “car” again and drive around. I mean this “car.”(Master, why is it important to meditate in the morning?) You can meditate anytime. It’s just in the morning most of the people have a night’s rest, and in the morning it is still quiet. – no traffic, no noise, no children, no telephone ringing, but it doesn’t mean you have to do it in the morning. I do it anytime, anytime – on the bus, in the car...Our people, they do it anywhere – except when driving, please!(Along the lines of driving. Traveling to Auckland for initiation, my car engine blew up (Oh!) without warning. Is this due to maya?) Well, the car blows up because the engine is bad. (That’s what I thought.) It’s due to the engine. By the way, congratulations that you’re still here to ask the question.(Many of us feel intense loneliness and feelings of the illusions of life. We are so tired of this; nothing makes any sense when we feel this way. There seems to be no point in anything, except the desire to go Home.) Yes, yes. That’s right, that’s right. We do feel that sometimes. Most of us feel that. It’s just that because life keeps us so busy, we just have to drive on, and this very important question about our true Home and about our great spiritual Self Being is sometimes swept under the carpet, but it’s always there. Every one of us wants to go home.(I sometimes sense the guidance and presence of the ascended Masters. Can They really help humanity from afar?) Oh, sure! We all are one, so if you are enlightened, they are affected. Can you imagine before, a long time ago, I mean after the Golden Age, our planet was all destroyed, and not too many people survived. Can you imagine the state of human beings at that time? Everyone was kind of groveling in darkness, and they all affected each other. We all affect each other, and that’s why we were the way we were.And now we’ve been practicing and practicing year after year, now our planet’s become better. You don’t feel it? You don’t feel we have progressed? You do or not? Yes? Yes! I mean... not saying that you come and practice the Quan Yin Method or have experienced Heaven; even if you have not, you can feel that our planet now has different energy, different. It’s more happy, it’s more open, and very relaxed, in French, “légère,” very relaxed. Yes, yes. And human beings are very different from before – before, kind of a few decades ago - and our technology, science everything is just blooming so fast. It’s very amazing what we have discovered lately. Can you imagine the email and all that internet and... wow! It’s incredible! So many other things that you don’t know, they have already developed.(Should we love our enemies?) What else to do with him? Practical question! If you kill him, his wife might kill you, or his daughter and son – they will continue forever. So we’d better love our enemy; it’s the best way to “kill” him. Yes! If you love your enemy, he becomes your friend, and the enemy’s gone for good! And, you have more friends from his family,- his wife, his kids and his relatives - his friends as well. Make one friend, you have many friends; make one enemy, you make many enemies. So we “lose business” if we hate the enemy.(What happens if I break the precepts after my initiation?) Just like asking me “what happens if I have an extramarital affair after I’ve married my wife?” How shall I answer you? Make up your mind. Nobody is there to force you; it’s only you, yourself, and you, and God. You make a covenant with God. You say, “OK, I make You my priority. I will do anything to know You. I don’t need all these stupid things in order to survive. I can live without them. I can live without killing my neighbors; I can live without telling lies; I can live without drugs and alcohol. I am strong, I don’t need these substitutes of intoxication; I can have divine intoxication. I can live without having to have sex with every man or girl that walks by.”Yes, make up your mind. Present yourself as a being you want to present. If you are the one who likes to present yourself to everyone else, “Oh yes! I am the one who tells lies,” “I am the one who’s always drunk and takes (addictive) drugs and all that,” “I am the one who covets the neighbor’s wife,” “I am the one who kills, who murders people.” If that is the way we want to present ourselves, then go ahead, it’s your choice. But if you want to present yourself as an enlightened being, as a wise person, as a happy being, as a helpful, compassionate, loving, truthful person, then there is that choice, you see? There are two choices; it’s all your choice. It is not my precept; it is the way of life. It’s a choice you make to present yourself to the world, to God, and to your own self when you look into the mirror, what kind of person you want to see. No precepts, don’t need precepts; you know what you want to be, right?(If everyone is Buddha, why does everyone feel miserable and not happy?) Because they are miserable Buddhas. They only know that miserable part, they don’t know the other happy part, that’s why. That’s why I ask you to be enlightened, and then you become happy Buddha.(Although I understand the reasons why some people want to be vegans or vegetarians, and the health benefits, etc., I believe that meditation and enlightenment is for all, regardless of diet customs, and can take whatever form necessary for each individual. What is your answer to this?) Cool! Cool! We all go eating pork and cow, and become like zoo-Buddha or something. We house all these animals in here and make a zoo out of us. You could make a zoo out of yourselves; Animal energy is not very suitable for a spiritual being if you want to go higher. The higher you go, the less luggage you must carry, and animal energy is very heavy because they love life and they also fear death. Of course, animals are also spiritual beings; they understand. If you are truly, really, in a very desperate place and you need food, and you talk to them; they will lay down their lives for you, every one of them! It’s just that most of us, we kill without mercy, we kill without reason, and we eat just for the sake of getting fat, I guess – not even getting healthy, excuse me! Yes, and then spend a lot of money going to clubs and diet, and jumping up and down; spend a lot of money and time to get all of this poison out of the system later; and then go to the hospital, get needles, get knives, get electric shock and all that, just because we eat too much of what we should not do.Besides, all lives are one, so if we kill someone, it’s like we cut our finger. It’s just that we’re blind right now. We don’t see, we don’t feel it, just like the finger is numb, we don’t feel the nerves. But we do hurt ourselves whenever we hurt anyone, even plants and all that. It is the minimum that we could do to survive, and that’s why we eat vegetables. But vegetables, they have less fear. They have 90% water, and if you cut one stem, they spring three, four, five more. So sometimes, you even need to cut the head in order for the plant to grow bigger. So this is more logical that we could rely on them to survive, so that we can develop ourselves spiritually, but not without permission from all these plants: if we cut the plant or tree, we talk to them first. That is what we do. Say that “I’m sorry, we need you. With your permission, and we are grateful.” That’s how we should eat even vegetables. We should be grateful for everything that we take physically from this life, because we’re not making any of them – we just take them. But we must meditate in order to bless it, to bless the planet, so that it will grow back in abundance again.

Be a Torchbearer for God, Part 1 of 5

29:22

Be a Torchbearer for God, Part 1 of 5

Every soul, every little part of God has chosen to walk a different path in order to experience different aspects of God, and the whole experience of all humankind or all beings makes up the wholeness of God. Therefore, Jesus said, “Love thy neighbor,” even “Love thy enemies.”– because everyone is us.Thank you, thank you. You call me “Master,” but you are all “Master.” You just forget, just forget. When we are united, when we remember the unity of the universe, which includes ourselves, then we remember that we are one with God, one with the all-pervasive Intelligence. And when we have forgotten this, then we have forgotten everything. And we try to remember that through different means, like prayers, scriptures, yogas, meditation. All these are good. All these are good for us. One day, we will truly remember that we are all Masters. There is no one in this room or anywhere else who is not a Master because we cannot be separated from the Master, who is all-pervasive, and we are in that pervasiveness, and we are one with that, and that's the only thing we are made of. There is nothing else that's made up our beings except God-essence, except the greatest things that we call Truth, Wisdom, God, Goddess, Buddha–name whatever you like to call this Greatest Being in the universe, which is even one with us, with every one of us.That's why at the time of death, the so-called ourselves, or the body, just lays flat on the ground, or anywhere, and doesn't move, because that essence of all movement, of all activities, has chosen to leave that physical instrument for that time, maybe seeking another instrument for further experiencing the limitless, the vastness, of this Great Being, which we call God, which is one with us, actually. Once we've found the unity again with this all-pervasive Intelligence, all-pervasive Love, we call this enlightenment, we call this God-realization or Self-realization, or attaining Buddhahood.Different countries name this Intelligence, this Wisdom, this greatest Love, by different terminologies because they speak different languages. Otherwise, there is just one, the Oneness that encompasses all things, including ourselves. And we are never ever separated from this Oneness, even if we try. The only reason we feel separated from this Oneness is because we have chosen to forget the unity, so that we can re-experience again this greatness and we can re-create ourselves again through forgetfulness, or remember again the bliss of Heaven, of unity with God, which is ourselves, our greatest Self.For example, many people ask me all the time, “What happens when we die?” I always say, “I didn't die yet, so I don't know.” But we could experience the feeling of death during our deepest prayers or contemplation. When we are in the deepest prayers, we will be oblivious to all the surroundings, including ourselves, and all the worries will depart from us. This is the time when the Indian yogis call “samadhi.” During this samadhi time, we will experience oneness with God, almost like the time when we die. That's why in the Bible it is mentioned that, “Learn to die so that you will begin to live.” And a saint also said, “I die daily,” “Whoever forsakes the flesh for the spirit will find God,” etc., etc.How do we forget or forsake the flesh? Every day we have so much problem of living, of survival. Every little thing that we see around us, everything we encounter during our lifetime, always tries to remind us that we are a physical being, we are just a mere mortal, a weak, feeble human being, helpless in front of destiny. So how can we forget this? We can. We can if we practice. We can if we know how. It is very simple. Every one of us can do this. We have children from six years old, even younger than that–five–they already experience oneness with God. They experience the phenomenon, feeling, of forsaking the flesh and uniting with the spirit, or visiting Heaven while living. It's just like I am coming to Africa to visit your beautiful country, and then tomorrow or the next days I will go back to another country, or back to where my house is. It is as simple as that.We could visit Heaven and go back to Earth again–not by the body, but by our own essence of being. We call it the soul or the spirit, which is always one with God. The body is just like a focus point, so that the soul can pay all the attention there in order to gather some earthly experience, that he wants to experience so that he can temporarily–if the soul is a he or a she, we have to say something–if she or he wants to experience something in this material existence, then that soul or that part of that great being of God has to focus on some point, focus so much so that he can forget completely about his oneness with God. At that moment, we are born–we say we are born in the physical world and we have a body. And so long as the soul or that part of God consciousness still concentrates on this focus point of the body or whatever body he chooses to focus on, we say that that's a “he,” that's a “she,” that's a “human being” or that's a what… Actually, that part of the soul, or we call individual soul, has never left the whole of God consciousness.So, we have never been really born, or we have never died. But we could choose to forget completely about God, about the whole unity of ourselves, and just focus on this physical being. Then we would never experience Godhood, even though God is all over us, everywhere. But if we choose to be awakened, to remember, then we can. We can forsake our attention for a while, not focus on this physical being for a while; we focus back to the unity. Then we can find God. We realize that we have never left God, that we are one with God, and we are always never separated from God.So that is just the secret of the universe. It's nothing much more than ourselves; our own consciousness makes choices all the time. We choose to be a human being, then we focus on a human body, so we have experience of human life–all the sorrow, the suffering, the happiness, the adventures of the flesh, the pleasures, the pain. The moment we feel we have enough of the physical experience, we want to experience something different, then we choose another choice. We might choose to be a deva or we might even choose to experience to be a flower–that's also possible! And that's why it is born, the theory of reincarnation, of transmigration into different levels of existence. But, actually, we have never gone anywhere at all, neither go up nor go down. We're just forever flowing in the life force of the universe, forever being in Godhood, but forever experiencing different focus points for our own pleasure, for our own amusement.But while we are in the physical body, sometimes we have forgotten the wisdom of ourselves. Therefore, we have forgotten the choice that we have made before we came here. So, the choice we have made might have led us to some pain or suffering; Then, now we complain. We complain so much because we don't like the suffering–the body doesn't like the suffering; the mind doesn't like the pressure–but that was what the soul wants to experience. He wants to experience pressure, so that he can appreciate again the freedom in God consciousness. He wants to choose suffering so that he can enjoy, thousand-fold, again, when he enters Eternal Bliss once more. That's why we are here, so that we know God more, we know ourselves more.Just like we are the king of an ancient nation. Sometimes a king disguises himself as a commoner and goes among the people in order to understand what a true citizenship is like. And then when he comes back, he appreciates his position better–his comfortable palace, all the servants that serve him, all the power that he has. When he has disguised himself as a commoner, he has to undergo all kinds of hardship, all kinds of ordinariness, just like every one of his subjects. He cannot reveal himself that he is a king. In fact, he must completely cover up his identity, so that he can truly, truly merge with the people of his nation and experience what their daily life is like.Similarly, we were once with Go–consciously at that time–we have never been away from God, but now, we are not consciously remembering that. So, we've had enough of the suffering of this physical life, we've had enough of the mundane experience, so we get bored, we feel there's nothing really here anymore for us to enjoy. We would like to know where we come from, what else is there in this vast universe of God's creation that we should experience. This is the time, when we ask this question, when we wonder like this, this is the time we will experience enlightenment. We are ready! We are ready for it. So, we came all this time to be a human being, to be different human beings. Sometimes, if we have focused on one focus point or one human existence, and we didn't feel we have enough, of physical enjoyment or physical adventure, then we focus on another existence of another human being again. And then we continue further, until we get tired. So, actually, anyone who is ready can experience God's Light, God's unity and enlightenment. That is very simple like that.It's your choice only. You've chosen to forget, and now you have chosen to remember. So, if you think you have chosen now to remember again then, of course, I am here to serve you. Because God has given me permission, ordered me, to do that. And maybe one day, after you have remembered everything about yourself, God will also say the same to you, “Go, my son! Go, my daughter! Do some service to my children, ” or “to Myself.”Because we have never been separated from God, remember that. Even if you don't remember, just believe me. We have nowhere to go except inside God's consciousness. We have nowhere else except in God's house right now. Everywhere, Hes encompasses every being in this universe. All the flowers, the sun, the moon, the stars, the planets, the galaxies, they’re all inside God. There is nothing that escapes Godhood.For a conscious soul, there is no such thing as hell but just a temporary passing experience that he has to go through in the course of eternity because he has chosen to experience some so-called suffering in order to grow, in order to understand happiness again. Every soul, every little part of God has chosen to walk a different path in order to experience different aspects of God, and the whole experience of all humankind or all beings makes up the wholeness of God. Therefore, Jesus said, “Love thy neighbor,” even “Love thy enemies.”– because everyone is us. They have chosen to play that role only. There is no enemy, just us, just God's different focus points to make life more abundant, more variety, more different, more colorful, just like Hes made us even so different colors so that we can enjoy each other. Like I look like yellow corn flakes–corn. And you look like chocolate. Yes, and he looks like icing, Christmas icing.Because God is colorful! Just like Hes made all different flowers different colors–even fruits. From the same soil, we obtain so many different fruits and different flowers. They are all different colors. The African people chose to always wear colorful clothes because inside I think they feel that they are very close to God. They are so happy. So, there is not really anything mysterious or difficult about finding God or finding our true Selves, because we have never been anything else but God, God's essence, one with God, or God's children, God's offspring, a spark of God, a part of God. It's just like the fish in the sea–he's born in the sea, he lives in the sea, and when he dies, he becomes the sea again. Things like that. So, we have never run anywhere.The problem with us now is that we have to change our thinking. We have to change. We have too much guilt feeling, guilty, fear about everything. Feel guilty if we're successful. People make us feel guilty if we are rich, even. If God gives us some richness or successful business, people make us feel guilty. If you have a beautiful wife, people make you feel bad also, sometimes. They come around and ask you, “How did you get to know this beautiful woman?” Or they will ask her, “What did you see in that guy? He's so ugly!” Things like that. It's none of their business. They make you feel bad. Yes, they make you feel guilty if you have a lot of money. They make you feel guilty if you are successful in politics or business. And the whole world is feeling guilty about so many things because we have been taught that way. This doctrine is never right.So, Jesus had to come, Moses had to come to set us free–set us free, not just by His sacrifice, but by the teaching, telling you that God is all-loving. “Knock and it shall be opened. Ask and it shall be given unto you.” But where do you knock? We couldn't even knock anymore. We are too weak! We are burdened with guilt and fear, fear from this revengeful God. There is no such thing as a revengeful God. If Hes is revengeful, Hes is like us, like you and me–War God. “You do something good to me or else!” This is not God! Can you imagine such a God? Then we have no need to worship such a small-minded and narrow person. If Hes is really a person, if there is a God like that, we should not worry about worshipping Hirm because it's just like one of any of the power-abusing people.Even in this planet. Think about it, you have children or you have a wife and husband, sometimes your wife makes mistakes, your husband strays a little, you still forgive him, you still hug him, and, “OK, I forgive you. Don't do it again.” Or your kids sometimes give you so much trouble because they are stubborn, they don't listen to you, they cause you headaches. You still forgive them, you still love them, and give them the best love that the parents can afford, even money–everything–sacrifice. So how would a God, the greatest Father or Mother of all the universe, could be revengeful, could condemn you to hell just because you are human, you don't know any better, and you make mistakes sometimes? So, this kind of fear has been inflicted upon us generation after generation. That's why we find ourselves too weak now to even believe there is a God who would even answer our prayers. That's why when we pray, we don't pray with the whole heart, we don't have conviction that our prayers will be answered. But it's stated in the Bible: “Knock and it shall be opened, ask and it shall be given.” It is like that. It is truly like that about God. No matter what you do, Hes will always answer your prayers. We just have to listen. I am going to show you how to listen to Hirm. We have to change, our way of thinking.

Selections from The Astral City - Chapter 4: The Spirit Doctor

Spiritism emerged in the mid-19th century through the findings and philosophy of French educator Hippolyte Léon Denizard Rivail, also known as Allan Kardec. Spiritism followers explore the nature, origin and destiny of souls, often through afterlife communication, conveyed via a medium. Numerous books have been written that provide insights into the afterlife and the soul’s immortality. One such volume is “Nosso Lar,” or “The Astral City,” by Spirit André Luiz through Spiritist medium Francisco Cândido Xavier. Francisco Cândido Xavier was a well-known Brazilian philanthropist who co-authored more than 400 books. In “The Astral City,” former medical doctor André Luiz speaks from the afterlife of his awakening and healing within a spiritual society near the Earth’s surface. This story describes not only the continuation of life beyond the physical body, but more importantly how Heaven cares for each and every human soul. The following excerpt from “The Astral City” describes how André Luiz was strengthened spiritually upon his rescue from the Lower Zones.

The Reunion of Souls, Part 1 of 11

The Reunion of Souls, Part 1 of 11

“For whatever reason you have come tonight, perhaps the underlying reason is that we are all searching for something. As I too had been searching, and believe I found my answers in this method of meditation. While practicing this meditation, you feel more loving, alive, happier, rejuvenated, and healthier than ever before. A natural, peaceful state is present throughout our daily lives, and this helps us to be more efficient in our daily work and being able to resolve situations that may have been previously daunting. By connecting with the Inner (Heavenly) Light and Sound, we can experience more peace and harmony and be more fulfilled in our everyday life. On a personal note, I have been fortunate to have been practicing the Quan Yin Method for almost six and a half years now. I feel I can do no justice with words to even begin to describe the beauty not just seen within but experienced daily through this meditation.” “I was overcome with joy and inspiration with everything I found in the Quan Yin booklet. Because I was already a full vegetarian, I was very fortunate to be initiated within a month. I felt that I just could not let this opportunity of a million years, or a lifetime, go. I just wanted to have it, because I knew the benefits of it, and it was so good. The day I picked up the Quan Yin booklet was the day my life changed forever and for the better. Quan Yin has brought me great happiness, joy, and inspiration into my life.” “My mom is 81, my dad is 82. They had both been very sick for a long time, and since they have been practicing, Master has been guiding them. She has appeared to them in dreams, has looked after them and even helped them heal themselves spiritually and physically. We laughed once, because mom said that they were so worried they went to the doctor to see if they were well!” “Master teaches us that we have to look inward to know who is the boss and what we need to do. Master’s teachings encouraged me to know that enlightenment is our true Nature, and that we always have it. And if we have a way to recognize it, that it will always be there. This is where I believe that the Quan Yin Method of meditation and Master’s teachings come in. I have searched for someone to elevate my consciousness or wisdom to such a point, that whatever problems or challenges I encounter in my life, I will be able to use wisdom to resolve them. And to be able to help others as well, which is a really huge focus of mine; to help others. But you can’t help others if you can’t help yourself first.”

The Reunion of Souls: Gathering with Association Members after the Lecture, Part 9 of 11

You know the nature of the soul is not that “I am here and I have one soul in here” – it’s not like that! My soul is bigger than just in here. It might be all over here, it might be all me, but it looks different. I know, I know... It’s not like, OK, “God is one and everybody is one with God” – it’s not in that sense. It’s in the sense that one individual can have a great soul that encompasses many so-called bodies. So we can happen to identify, just like each other.(Can You please teach me how to love?)I can’t, but you can teach yourself by going in the Ocean of Love, which you are, by remembering it, by going back into it, swimming in it every day, saturating yourself with blessings from Heaven, beloved by God, feel loved by our Father, then you will be loving automatically. I can’t teach you, not even in a thousand years, because you are love incarnated – you are already love. No one can teach you. You just awaken, remember, walk the way you should be as a loving being, as a representative of God, then you will know love. (This is in three parts. What is a noble idea? What should we do continuously in order to fulfill the noble idea in our mind? And then in order to work in a big company and make lots of money, is this not a noble idea?)Oh, it is. It depends on what kind of company and depends on what you do with the money you earn. The noble idea is to know God. That’s the noblest idea. And everything else follows. It’s OK to earn money. You have to take care of this temple. Take care of God inside. And you have to take care of your friends, your family, your wife, your kids. It is a noble idea to earn money, take care of your loved ones, and “by the way” knowing God. If just earning money to take care of this physical body and their physical body, it’s not enough, that’s all. Have to know God and work at the same time. I am knowing God, I’m working, earning money too. I use the money in different ways, and I am very happy with it. Earning money is good, very noble. I’m proud of my money because a lot of people need it. I am always happy when I can give somebody something. It’s a very noble feeling.(If a person who, in a previous life, has done some bad things, what should he do to liberate in this life, and where can he liberate to, and for how long?)The only thing you should do is just know yourself. Doesn’t matter how bad you have been in the past, it doesn’t matter. Doesn’t matter how long this hall has been dark, tonight they just lit the light and everything is brilliant again, even if it has been dark here for 300 years. It doesn’t matter at all. Get enlightened and everything else is clear. (Why is God so hidden, so hard to realize or hard to find?)Hes is not! My God! Hes is dying to come out to shake hands with you! It’s just you don’t look for Hirm. Quiet yourself, like 10 minutes, 20 minutes, half an hour, one hour, two hours, a day, and then Hes appears, immediately. Just look into where God is and don’t look into the world. Meditation means we retire from the world for a while. It doesn’t mean go into the Himalayas, but retire inside, forget the world, forget every trouble for a while and then remember God, then God will come.(How do we know that we are one? How do we know we are complete when we give so much and ask for nothing more but true acceptance? Is this a sign of not knowing oneself?)We only know we are one when we are enlightened. Anything else nobody can explain to us. Once we meditate, we’re inside the spiritual experience, we will see that, just like I see you, that we are one.Yes, honey? Finished? Cool! (All finished.) Yes! Good! Thank you so much for your love and your patience! (Thank You!) You are a wonderful audience! You can take some fruit if you like to. You’ve been sitting so long, maybe you feel tired and dry. They’re all yours! Thank you and God bless you! God already does!Did I forget something? Do you want to come up and get it? Do you want to come and get it? Here! Oh my God, so many! Come, come! Here. There you go. Fruit, this is different. Apples. Here. Do you want some?(If anyone is interested in learning any of the two meditation techniques taught free of charge by the Supreme Master Ching Hai, would you please make your way now to the foyer where the working staff are most happy to guide you through to the registration area.)Quick, quick, bring. Here, brother. Banana. Share. Share. Take the whole thing, brother. OK, just one. Wait, wait. Keep fighting with me, the banana even. Here, baby. Oops! Catch! Catch! Use your hands and wisdom, whatever. Here, baby! Back, yes! Two hands. Two hands is easier. Here, for you. Give this to the lady. Here you are. I can’t give to all, OK? Just symbolic, all right? Go up and get it yourself. Here. The kid. Here, darling. Catch! Here! Sorry. Catch, whoever can. Oops, sorry. Oh, that’s good! Lady, here. Here. Let her, let her.Here, brother. I think I just… (Thank You.) Here. Here. Good! Hey, brother! Wow! One more? (…fell over.) Oh, man. Mother here, here. Here. Mother here, come. Hold your hands up. For you. No, for her. Hold your hands. Here, here. OK. Let her, let her. OK. Wait, wait. Here.Cool. Good. This is fun when you get one, you know? (Yes.) It’s not about apple, it’s if you are lucky. Here! Oh, sorry. Here, darling. Here. Here is for you. Yes. I’m sorry I couldn’t reach everybody. Yeah, here, here, here. Yes! Oh, again! (I tried my best.) Oh, again! Yes!Give it to... Can you bring the whole box and give to people over there, please? Here you are! My God! Let the old lady and gentleman take. Here you are, father. Here. It’s for him. Yes. Anyone? Elder people first, please, senior citizens and unable people. Here. Don’t push to the front. Yes. Here! Here, baby. I’d like to give everybody, it’s just impossible. Pushing. Do you have it, brother? Here. Oh, man. Next one. Here, here, here. Here.Anyhow, whatever. Here. Where are the… You want to give me that? Here. Orange? Here, darling. OK, mother, the white lady. Here! Let the white lady behind you get. Yes. You missed it again. (Orange!) Orange. Here you are! Here. Here. Here, darling, whoever. There you go. Forever fruit. I’ve got to go, OK? Otherwise, we don’t… (One more!) Again? Oh man, every time. Please leave there for me. I’ve got to go. Working. I’ll come here. This way, go this way? It’s OK. Thank you. I will just drop it and... Keep it. Please, for you. Help yourself, please. It’s just due to time. OK? I would like to give. OK, guys. Can you please bring the fruit here? Hey! Yes? Bring over here. Please bring some more over here. Yeah? You wish? All right. OK. I’ll touch them all. Hoola hup! How are you? (I am good.) Some refreshment. (Now I know... I have one Master…) Yes. Right. Thank you. Thank you, darling. You have to see in order to believe? (That’s true. Seeing is believing.) Take care, darling. I touched that. You help yourself. Here. You OK? All yours. Yes, yes. Take. They’re all yours. Again? It’s in here, not in here. Brother. And you. Wow, my God, that’s professional! Ooh, he’s good. Here. You guys, all yours, OK? Here! One more chance. Good. See you after. I’ll come back here. What is that?Money’s all the groups of people? (Yes.) What people do for money, you don’t think like that because it’s a wrong conception. Actually, we should not need money, you’re right. But just in this society, it’s already established by money. So, we have to earn money to use it to exchange for something more loving, that’s all. Otherwise money is no need. In a higher society, they just exchange. Like you make potatoes and I make apples, and we exchange. That’s the best way. But I can’t change the world in two minutes. I work with it, so that it’s much more comfort. Oh, sure, honey. Take care. OK. I love you.(Thank You. Really, really lovely to meet You here again.) (We all love You.) (Ten years ago.) Ten years ago? You still look the same. (Yes.) (Two years ago, I read all Your books. I’m really lucky.) Oh, yeah? (Yes.) OK. (Thank You, Master. My mom sent me all Your books in Australia.) Oh, really. (I’m so pleased to see You again. I’m so happy! And I told my mother-in-law, that couldn’t make it tonight, I’ll take that home for her,) OK, yes. (85 years old.) Give my love. Give my love. OK? (And all the best for Your journey.) Thank you, thank you. I’ll come back. This way or that way? I’ll come back for the initiation. I’ll come back soon. I have to leave so that they can come here. (Yes.) OK, guys. (See You later.) See you. See you. (Waiting for You.) I’m really grateful for your love and your blessing. The people behind there don’t have. Bring it to them. See you. I’m going. Bye. (Can I have one?)You guys! You want to sit here with me? Come here. Yes. Sit anywhere. You look like a monk! Baby, come here! Here, you want some cake for your mother? OK, then sit there if you want. So cute! So nice of kids to do this, so nice!Later we share, yes? (Yes!) We share all these, yes? (Yes!) Make it dry and hang it there, yeah? Some people put them in tea. I don’t recommend it because some flowers I don’t know if it’s safe... Thank you darling! ...you can take that fan in here. Boy! Sit if you want, yeah! Take the flowers and give... put it over here, put it here! You can help yourselves to the candies here if you want. Thank you! Wow! Beautiful... oh my God! Thank you so much! Thank you! I am sorry, guys, if you didn’t come to the stage, but here is fine, too! Yes! Leave it there! Let me blow something cool, cool, cool... He likes it. Oh yeah! He takes the whooh....How come you are so good? You know, why you are so good? Because you are me! Yes! We get on fabulously well because we are one! Thanks! You know the nature of the soul is not that “I am here and I have one soul in here” – it’s not like that! My soul is bigger than just in here. It might be all over here, it might be all me, but it looks different. I know, I know... It’s not like, OK, “God is one and everybody is one with God” – it’s not in that sense. It’s in the sense that one individual can have a great soul that encompasses many so-called bodies. So we can happen to identify, just like each other. Just like sometimes we have two persons, but they think exactly the same thing at the same moment. That is because that is one soul, not because they are one with God or they are one with each other, but they are one soul, just like twins, you see. They’re like soul mates, something like that.But soul mates don’t necessarily mean only one; means a lot, a lot of them... Can be a lot, because some great souls, they encompass a lot, a lot of other beings for their own purposes. Therefore, we feel like brothers and sisters, we feel like one. Sometimes you feel very good with your sister or your brother, your mother, your father, because that’s you. You make it become family, but it’s only one, one soul as many individuals. Understand? No? No. That’s all right. But that’s why, sometimes we say, “I have affinity with that person,” or “she is my soul mate,” “he is my soul mate,” because it’s you, it is really you! I mean, that’s your individual soul group in one soul, see what I mean?Apart from that, we are one with God and one with everybody else. We have also individual souls which can house many... big group of people as just one soul, but it looks different. No? You don’t understand? Never mind! It’s OK! You do understand? Yes! So that’s why sometimes we feel so good with a group of people. The more we’re with them, the more we feel strengthened, because we’re at home with ourselves; we are together, we’re pieced together, you see? No wonder we work so well. Can you imagine, you are me? But how come I am the only beautiful one in here? Don’t tell anybody! I am very humble. I love you so much! (We love You too!) Ah, if I don’t come see you, it’s not because I don’t love you, Ok? Yeah! But also because I don’t feel the separation. Maybe you do. Sometimes, I do miss you a lot. Some people, especially some people, if I’ve known a long time, or even like one of the residents died or something, I know I can see her anytime, but it’s different. You see what I mean? It’s different, like I cannot keep calling her, “Come on down here and visit me!” It’s not fair. But when we’re physically together, we can. See what I mean?And sometimes... So nice, so nice people that I also want to stay there with them forever. Just like, for example now, I invite some representatives, some contact persons to my room and we share some food, eat together – they eat together, I share the food and they eat together – and it’s just so nice; feels like family and feels like they are so good. I also love to be around good people, it makes you feel good, too. It makes you feel life is worth living and everything you do is really worthwhile. It’s really, really nice. So I also did not want them to leave and I also did not want to leave New Zealand; I just get sentimental like that. And perhaps you do feel like that when we are not together, and in some moments like that, I understand how you feel, but otherwise, most of the time I don’t feel the separateness between us at all, and I do not feel that the world needs me even. I’ve told you that many times, but it’s difficult for you to understand.

The Reunion of Souls: Questions and Answers, Part 8 of 11

Meditation doesn’t change the world, it changes you, and then, if everyone changes themselves, the world becomes peaceful. We only make war because we are not peaceful ourselves, because we could not know the person next to us is God, we could not realize that we are God and we could not realize that the one we kill, we shoot, we torture, is also God, and that’s why the world is not peaceful.(Does meditation work for those who steal and take (addictive) drugs?)Steal? If you are hungry... if you are hungry, it’s OK. And drugs, you don’t need to take (addictive) drugs in order to feel not hungry, so it’s not a necessity. Jesus said that the one who steals for bread is not guilty. I say the same. But (addictive) drug is not a necessity, and it damages your body, your brain, and it damages the happiness of your relationship with your family and other friends. It is better to be away from it. Today, it’s easy to cure yourself of drug addiction. Just enlist yourself to drugs - or alcoholics anonymous; they’ll help you. Clean yourself, so that you will be whole again.(Thank You for coming to New Zealand. When we feel intense fear, what is the reason for this? What is life trying to tell us?)It depends, it depends. If you are in a fearful situation, that is all right to feel fear, but just we have to not let the fear overcome us, so that we are paralyzed and do not know how to react a better way. Fear is a natural emotion. Fear, love are natural emotions, you don’t have to suppress it, you just have to understand it and handle it. For example, you think I don’t have fear? I do! I feared to come here and I didn’t know what to talk to you… I feared that I didn’t know how to make you understand what I understand. I really did fear. Today I arrived early and then I went to have tea in a shop because I didn’t have anything since yesterday. I just kind of... couldn’t eat on the airplane and I was very tired physically, because I had to rush up a lot of things in order to pack and then go. And so I didn’t sleep at all from..., you know, a long time. So when on the airplane, I couldn’t eat anything; just tried to sleep or quiet down. So this morning, I was worried that I might sleep again in the lecture hall, so I went to grab some tea. And then I saw a lot of people, they sat there and had tea and they talked about all kinds of things, and I was wondering, “How am I going to tell all these people about God? Do they really care about God? They are so happy with their physical lives, whom am I going to talk to, and what?” But then I still do it, you see? I have fear, but I go through it; not that I don’t have it.We have fear but we have to go through it. If it is a fearful situation, we have to think, “OK, what can we do to make it better?” If it’s a fearful person, we try to use love to overcome his own fear. The person who is sometimes bad to us, makes us fearful, because he himself is an insecure person. So it depends on the situation. Anyway, even if we have fear, we must calm down and think, “OK, I have fear, but now, what must I do in this kind of situation to get myself out of this fear?” You have to take control of yourself to get rid of the fear. Take control of yourself means, OK, deal with the situation, so that we become secure, better, and then the fear will disappear. We cannot suppress the fear, we have to deal with it, make it better.Oh, are we OK with time? Because people need initiation. Whoever likes to have a deeper spiritual instruction and deeper, more commitment and wants initiation, should leave and go out and register yourself so we can call you later. We’ll know your name and call you later. And after this finishes, we initiates here? (Yes, right.) Here, right? Here, then we have to clear up. Even though we can stay forever, but the people will sleep here if we stay too long. How many more questions? (There’s at least another 30 here.) Wow! (Thirty.) Thirty. That takes a long time. Just go through fast and the important ones first, OK?(OK. It is my belief that we choose our parents. Is this correct? If so, why do some of us choose to be born in various religions that take a long path to God?)That’s the way we choose to do. That makes up the varieties of this life. Otherwise, if everybody chooses the same thing at the same time, then there’s no need to choose anything. Even though roses are the best flowers that people think are the best, we have chrysanthemums, we have peach blossoms, etc., just for variety. It’s cool.(What is Your relationship with the ascended Masters?) They helped me. They’re my friends. I am continuing Their job. Colleagues.(If God is inside of me, then I am God. So when I want to do something dangerous, stupid things, does it mean God controls me or wants me to do these bad things? And should I do them?)Nope! There is God inside us, but because we work through the brain – sometimes the brain is bad, the computer is damaged – and that’s why we do bad things. So, if we think it is a bad thing, that means the God-voice inside us told us not to do it. If you already know it’s bad, that means it’s bad, it’s no good, don’t do it. Sometimes, you drive your car, you have the first class driver’s license, and you drive perfectly, but sometimes your car... Yes, thank you! Sometimes your car’s damaged, the engine’s dead or the tire blows out. You cannot blame yourself for all these. It’s not the driver, it’s the car. So, if it’s good driving, everything, then the driver is good, the car is good. If the car blows out and everything, then the engine is bad, the car is bad, the driver is still good! So you make the distinction between the driver and the car, between God and the brain, then there will be no problem. If it’s bad, don’t do it. If it’s good, do it right away. Very simple. Yes?(If there’s a Heaven and angels, is there such a thing as evil and demons?)Yes, human beings do some evil things. Yes, there are some bad energies hanging in the atmosphere and sometimes we can feel it. But originally, there is no devil, no evil. It’s just because we sometimes think in a wrong way, think in a bad way, and all this generates these evil energies. And so sometimes we call this evil and it affects us.(What do Divine love and human love have in common?) Human love is a part of Divine love. Yes, a small part, a small part, and if two persons, when they love each other unconditionally, that is the Divine love in action also.(Do we go through many lifetimes and collect karmic (retributive) debt along the way? Does reincarnation exist?)Yes, it does. It does. We don’t collect, really, karmic (retributive) deeds; we just experience different things. We have chosen to do this, to do that, just to experience, yes? And once we finish, and we don’t want it any more, we return to God, we remember ourselves – that’s when we become enlightened. (What is the meaning when I occasionally see flashing purple light?) Oh, that’s good. That’s spiritual experience, but that’s not very high level – Astral Level. We have many more levels beyond that. But it’s good already, that you’re already so concentrated alone by yourself, that you can get some experience. Go ahead.(Why is it that though we are all equal in God’s creation, some of us suffer so much misery while certain others, though they have a life of evil misdeeds, materially prosper?)Well, it’s because of different paths that we have chosen. When we gain material wealth or comfort, that doesn’t mean we are blessed or we are anything good, because soon we’ll die, we’ll leave everything behind. If we gain spiritual knowledge and wealth, that is the everlasting one. So, do not envy those who only acquire material possession but have nothing for their soul, because soon they will be empty. But you, even though you don’t have much of material acquisition, but are rich in your heart have great love, great compassion, great knowledge and wisdom. Like the Buddha, like Jesus, They were walking on bare feet; They didn’t have any money, They didn’t have cars, They had nothing and people fell at their feet to worship Them. People listened to everything They said and are still worshipping Them two, three thousand years later. Who is the richer? The millionaires out there? Or Jesus, or Buddha? You already know the answer. There’s no need to compare ourselves with others; we have to know what we are worth inside. That is important. (Why do we keep coming back, even if we have remembered that we have God within us each lifetime?) No, we haven’t remembered. That’s why we came back.(What is Your definition or understanding of “hell”?)I don’t want to understand. No, hell is when we suffer or when we cause suffering to someone else. I am sorry if I didn’t look at you this way. ‘Cause I keep looking at her. She’s so attractive... vegetarian (vegan)!’ Anyway. Hell is not just a place, though some people do go there to suffer because they want to clear themselves of some misconception while they were alive. You know we are our own selves, God, so we judge ourselves if we did some terrible things in life.Sometimes we choose to go to some purification places just like the hospital, cut off all the bad cells, and then you become healthy again. So, hell is a place of suffering, and it could be on this physical planet as well. When you go through intense pain, mentally or physically, or when you cause intense pain to someone else, even animals, that is hell for that person.(From my understanding, the way to practice the Quan Yin Method is by meditation. I am wondering how meditation can help to change the world to be peaceful and in harmony – an ideal world.)Yes, that’s the right question. Meditation doesn’t change the world, it changes you, and then, if everyone changes themselves, the world becomes peaceful. We only make war because we are not peaceful ourselves, because we could not know the person next to us is God, we could not realize that we are God and we could not realize that the one we kill, we shoot, we torture, is also God, and that’s why the world is not peaceful. Once we meditate – it doesn’t mean you have to meditate – you have to enter yourself, and I have to show you that.I have to reconnect you with your true Self, then that is true meditation, not just sitting there like a statue. You have to really reconnect with God first and then that is a true meditation. Once that has taken place, your being is changed forever. You become a peaceful example of a walking god on this planet, and even if you don’t do anything, people see you, they feel peace, and they want to learn ‘what did you do that makes you feel what you are.’ They want to be around you; they want to take advice from you; they want to learn your example, and that’s how the world will become peaceful. It’s very logical, nothing mysterious.(Is praying meditation?) Yes, yes! It is a kind of meditation, but praying is only a “one-way” meditation. Like, we talk, talk, talk to God, “Oh, God! God, please do this, do that...” but we don’t hear what Hes says; that’s why it’s “one-way.” Meditation is a “two-way” communication. We offer our pain, our sorrow, our happiness, our gratitude to God, and Hes in turn lets us know what we should do next; or we have communication, we have connection with God. And praying is just talk, talk, talk, one person - we don’t hear what God says at all - but in meditation we hear, we know. Hes guides us; Hes brightens our lives with a thousand suns inside; Hes makes us shining, loving, wise, humorous, beautiful, inside out. That’s the difference.(Do we move between different levels of consciousness from moment to moment, or are we at a certain level, until we grow spiritually, and then move up?) One by one, just like in school. One class after another. Some move quicker, some move slower.(Is our destiny fixed?)Yes and no. Yes and no. There are two kinds of destiny: one is still in store, waiting; the other one is already written for this lifetime. That’s why you are born in a certain family and have to walk the way you do and experience pain and pleasure the way you do. But even then, you can correct that. Once we go to a higher level, we can look down and see what’s wrong in our lives, and then we can fix the different departments and make our lives better. That’s why meditating people, they become happier and their lives smoother; they’re clearer and everything’s better for them automatically. “Seek you first the Kingdom of God and all the things shall be added unto you,” that’s what it means.

Understanding the Mayan Calendar: Selections from “The Book of Destiny: Unlocking the Secrets of the Ancient Mayans and the Prophecy of 2012” by Don Carlos Barrios (vegetarian), Part 2 of 3

Understanding the Mayan Calendar: Selections from “The Book of Destiny: Unlocking the Secrets of the Ancient Mayans and the Prophecy of 2012” by Don Carlos Barrios (vegetarian), Part 2 of 3

In today’s program, we are going to explore the meaning of the Mayan signs governing each day of the Mayan months. Don Carlos Barrios wrote the following about the significance of the 13 months in the Cholq’ij calendar: The 13 numbers are conceptualized similar to a pyramid. From numbers 1 to 7 we are climbing with much effort. At the number 8 we are in a position where perfect harmony is possible and on the top of the pyramid, and 9 to 13 is directed downhill, creating more ease with the energies, as they are no longer so forceful in developing us. This varies slightly between men and women: for men, 8 is considered to be the top of the pyramid as they are considered to typically be more balanced physically and have to struggle more to reach the spiritual levels than women, where 9 is the top of the pyramid, where they are typically thought to be slightly less stable in the physical realms but have an easier time accessing the spiritual. “Our Grandfathers warn that this ancient tradition is not to be treated as a curiosity, not to be indulged in as a form of entertainment, and not to be used selfishly. Instead, it should guide our growth on all levels - physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual. Mayan life and spirituality are built on understanding and using the following signs, which governed the Classic Mayan world and have been preserved by our traditional Elders. On August 17, 1992, the planet entered a new cycle, one of comprehension, wisdom, and harmony. This new cycle is a time of great change in the world’s social and economic structure. For this reason, the doors of Mayan wisdom are being opened to humankind. Now that the period of darkness has ended, the Elders have resolved to publish the Mayan signs as an instrumental way of understanding our true purpose. The hope is that everyone will orient their life based on their sign and follow Saq B’e (the White Road). Respect for historical accuracy is one of the strictest and most important rules: not a single word is ever added to or removed from our texts or oral tradition. This book (The Book of Destiny) is a commitment to reality - that is, to our Grandfathers’ vision. Although as human beings we have many limitations, we can find a way to overcome them in the depth and transcendence to be found in these signs. The task of using the signs in one’s personal life, however, requires a real desire to conform to a new way of life that balances technology and harmony with nature.”

The Foundation of Creation: From the Book of the Secrets of Enoch (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

The Foundation of Creation: From the Book of the Secrets of Enoch (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

We now continue with the amazing record from chapters 26 to 30 in “The Book of the Secrets of Enoch,” depicting the story of creation as told by God to Enoch, in which the world’s foundation takes its dual nature, known to us to this day. Chapter 26 “And I summoned the very lowest a second time, and said: ‘Let Archas come forth hard,’ and he came forth hard from the invisible (spiritual). And Archas came forth, hard, heavy, and very red.” Chapter 27 “And I commanded that there should be taken from light and darkness, and I said: ‘Be thick,’ and it became thus, and I spread it out with the light, and it became water, and I spread it out over the darkness, below the light, and then I made firm the waters, that is to say the bottomless, and I made foundation of light around the water, and created seven circles from inside, and imaged (the water) like crystal wet and dry, that is to say like glass, (and) the waters and the other elements - and I showed each one of them its road, and the seven stars, each one of them in its heaven, that they go thus, and I saw that it was good.” Chapter 28 “And then I made firm the Heavenly circle, and (made) that the lower water, which is under Heaven collect itself together, into one whole, and that the chaos become dry, and it became so. ” “Out of the waves I created rock hard and big, and from the rock I piled up the dry, and the dry I called earth, and the midst of the earth I called abyss, that is to say the bottomless, I collected the sea in one place and bound it together with a yoke.” “And I said to the sea: ‘Behold, I give you (your) eternal limits, and you shalt not break loose from your component parts.’ Thus I made fast the firmament. This day I called me the first-created [Sunday].”

The Reunion of Souls: Gathering with Association Members after the Lecture, Part 10 of 11

I am only one, but all of you feel that I love you alone, love enough, or have enough love for everyone. It is because we practice the way of love and we just know how to have enough. It’s just like how to save money to become richer – not because you earn more money, not necessarily, but you save more.Some people keep telling me, “It’s difficult to know if you’re a true Master or not.” I said, “Hey, it’s good! It’s good that you don’t know, so I don’t have to work so hard!” No problem! I only do it just because you ask me to, or people ask me to. How can you tell? You look like me – your nose is in the middle and two eyes and two ears – you can’t tell. And, I don’t make miracles; I don’t make anything to attract you at all. I just sit in a coffee shop, sometimes drinking... and if you want, I come here sometimes, to talk to you.But I was thinking in the coffee shop, it was so difficult. I said, “Who? What? What am I going to talk about? And who will listen to all this?” I suddenly felt the frustration of going to talk to strangers that you have never met before in your life, and they are going to be convinced, and then go get initiation, and eat vegetarian (vegan), and all that stuff all that stuff for all their lives. Can you believe that? Yeah! Not only that, they’ll bring their friends, their wives and kids, and they want to give everything to you. How do you do that?... I mean, how do I do that? I mean, how am I going to do that?Today I sat in the coffee shop just like everyone else, and I felt really like everyone else. And I thought, how am I going to talk to these people that I have never met, and might never meet again? And they don’t even know anything about spirituality, no vegetarian (vegan) experience, nothing. Maybe now and again they eat... French fries and that’s what they call vegetarian (vegan), because they don’t want to eat anything else. Or like the Chinese people, eat morning vegetarian (vegan), and the whole day... for example like that. They’re morning Buddha, and the whole day take a rest, vacation... Yeah, but at least the Chinese or the Vietnamese, the Asian people, they kind of have more idea about vegetarian (vegan), yeah? They believe more in the invisible power. But how am I going to talk to the New Zealand people? You know, they are different, and I look different to them. I just come in and they accept me, for example, you know, like that. It’s just not easy eh? I was thinking hard how am I going to do that?(This is for the half initiation...) Ok, go! (We want the half initiation to come in there.) Congratulations! Whoever is half initiated or want to sit again, go in there. You’d rather sit here. (Yes. We love You.) You want initiation, guys? Oh, that’s nice. She likes to sit wherever. Very tired. So everyone went in already? (Yes.) That’s cool. I just go to say hallo, again. Let them... Oh, man. I don’t know. OK, let’s see what’s going on. Come back soon. (Thank You. Thank You, Master.) You’re welcome. Here, darling. Leave her alone. Leave me alone. Everybody is so tall like that. So late already and force her. Sorry honey, it’s all my fault. We’ll take the flowers for the sacrifice. All right. What else? It’s OK? I think it’s OK. Tong? Tong. Is Tong here? (She is downstairs.) Downstairs, where? (She is downstairs. I will go get her.) Tell her to hurry up.You are off and on…At least you sit together and encourage each other to nod off, better than you sit there and “nod” alone; it’s lonely, right? So then, you have maybe more kids, work harder than before, have more money, some of you, better jobs, or even if you have the same money, you know how to manage it better, and you have more than before. You travel more than you ever did before and with the same money, because you know how to... Sit here mother! You do look tired. Yeah! There, there it is. And you know... you just know how to do things better and therefore, you’re just happier. You have more than before, even though it may be the same.I have read an article in a magazine, “How to become a millionaire.” Do you want to hear? Is Tong here? (She’s over here.) Come here, Tong. (Everyone is going to beat me up later.) Hurry up and disguise yourself. OK.It is very logical. We give a lot of money away – not a lot – for us it’s a lot. Well, Actually, it is also a lot, millions of dollars is not little money in this world. Even though we can’t compare to Bill Gates, we are different “gates”. We are also “gates” – “Quan Yin Fa-men”! “Quan Yin Fa-men” means “the gate to Heaven,” “the gate to the Word of God.” So, anyhow, we’re also “gates”.We also donate a lot of money for our capacity. Other people also think it’s a lot, I mean not a lot compared to a lot of others, a lot of people or the World Bank, but a lot for what we earn, or for the ordinary actions of people. Most people don’t give like that. So I do give, and a lot of people think that I am very rich – and I am also, but I am not as rich as they think I am, which is good; but if they had come to us... Suppose, if they were me and had that kind of money, they wouldn’t look that rich and they be able to give that much; not because they don’t want to, it’s just they don’t know how to manage – you see? – don’t know how to manage so that it will stretch out like that.So when I read that article, I thought it was cool! I did it all already. “How to become a millionaire,” I knew it all already. But when I read that article, it looked like I wrote it myself! Yeah! Because it’s just natural. Some people have it naturally, but it is because we are also enlightened, we also practice the enlightened way and the way of love, and we have very few wants in this world.Are you... You understand all of this? (Yes.) Yeah? The Chinese and the Cantonese and all? And the New Zealanders especially, you understand? OK. So, anyway.You see, just like the way you are now. Before, you had a lot, but you thought you didn’t have enough, and now, however much you have, you can manage; you still can come to New Zealand or Thailand, or wherever the retreat, provided you have holidays. You can always manage, and that’s the wonder - and you feel always enough and you feel always loved. I am only one, but all of you feel that I love you alone, love enough, or have enough love for everyone. It is because we practice the way of love and we just know how to have enough. It’s just like how to save money to become richer – not because you earn more money, not necessarily, but you save more.You want less of the unnecessary things and then you save more money, so when you save one dollar, it’s just like you earn one more dollar, and it’s even better than earning one dollar more, because when you save one dollar, you don’t need to go to work for that. You just cut out some unnecessary things. Before, you’d go out and buy everything; now you have to think carefully. Before, you’d go out and buy everything, now you go just straight to the tofu – save money, save time, save making it. Before, we cooked all kinds of things, now just tofu, chap choy, and then tomorrow, chap choy, tofu. Simple. Simple life. And before, you’d go everywhere, maybe you’d need to book a hotel for yourself and your husband, and it’s also a lot of money. Now, you just pack a tent, camp out there – cool, fresh air, natural, oxygen, a lot, around you when you camp under the trees, camp on the grass; feel good, light and economic also. We live together, we’re happy; we don’t need to stay in a big hotel to be happy. In fact, we’re happier than when we stay in a big hotel because we have common ideas, interests. We love each other and we just feel so good, and the natural air and the food, healthy, make us feel so good, you see?The money, you didn’t earn more. You don’t have to earn more money – just know how to live your life because you only have one life, this life. Whether I say the truth or not, you have Heaven or not, or you have reincarnation or not, this life is all you know, and if you don’t manage well, you cannot live freely and you cannot feel happy about it. You have to do what you really want and what is good for you. Of course, you would tell me that you can do anything you want – it’s not true. What’s good for you is what you should do. Vegetarian (vegan) is healthy, right? Meditation calms your nerves, makes you more bright and clever and loving – that’s good for you. It’s not that you do anything you want. Of course, we can do anything we want, but what’s good for us, that’s what the clever people would do. Saving money is better than earning money. Anything you save is like you earn, except that you don’t have to go out and work for it and pay tax on it even. Anything you earn is yours, and then you can do everything you want: you can give yourself something you like or give to the needy people. That’s what we do. We do it all the time. I do, also. What I told you, I do. I don’t always do it, so that it is written in the magazines. Most of the things I do are not written in the magazines. It is written because some people happened to be there and knew it and wrote a report about it, or it is official, like a concert, and everybody has to know. That’s how it is. Otherwise, I do it every day, every time, every chance.Sometimes one of the attendants laughed at me. He said, “Master, how come McDonald’s meal is so expensive? It’s the most expensive restaurant I have ever seen.” You know why? Because when we went in there, we saw some homeless people – they were looking through garbage – and I gave like $500 and that’s what he said, “My God! Just eating some French fries and two colas, that’s it! – $500!” So he made jokes about it all the time. He said, “OK! Next time, when you say you want to take me out, I know which is the most expensive restaurant!” So I took him to McDonald’s and we always share whatever. Most of the time, we see homeless people, they hang around there or they look in the garbage – I cannot bear it, so I give them some, I give what I have.So he made jokes. He said, “What? We eat only two French fries and two medium colas, and then we even have to serve ourselves - and even stand in line - and so expensive!” You know, because in first class restaurant you sit there, you have napkins and everything, and the waiter comes, and serves you like a king. Then you pay just maybe two, three, five hundred dollars, depends. But for two persons only, two, three hundred dollars is already expensive. He said he couldn’t imagine McDonald’s is more expensive. He just makes jokes.So these things we do, because we love other people, because they are us anyway. So there’s nothing to talk about. But sometimes, of course, we write it in the magazine because also other disciples need to learn from the example. Also, most of the things that I do are open, so people can know. Just so we know the things that we do, just like you tell me what you do and so the news reports what I do to you, so that we get in touch, we know each other’s way of life and things like that. Like, knowing each other, not to boast, for everybody else to know. If to boast for everybody else to know, we should put it in Reuters or like big news company, not just write it in our small magazine. But this is a way of life that we do all the time. It should be the way of life and everyone should do that, and I am very proud of you, that you do that all the time. I know that. I know you do that individually, and still you have enough money to spare to come here or to go to retreat or come see me whenever possible. Your life becomes richer or not? (Yes!) Yes!
