What is Anger?

Anger is born of desire. When you have a desire and it is unfulfilled, you may get angry or frustrated. Desire arises from thoughts. Therefore, thoughts alone are responsible for both anger and desire. It destroys our good human qualities. It suppresses the divine spark that is inside you, leaving only the demonic nature within. This fire of desire has no long-term aim; it will not be appeased once...

SELF-REALISATION

One of the tasks that my wife Ranjana and I feel guided to fullfill is to help those who want to Self-Realise. We have been given this gift from God to share it with our brothers and sisters. Like the parable in the bible, Jesus tells the story of the rich man who gave his three servants his property to oversee, each according to his ability. When he came...

The Open Heart will Recognise God

About the middle of April, as I went up to bed to sleep. I was sitting on the bed and I communed with the Higher Self. A random question arose in my mind as to why God is not recognised when He takes on an earthly body. The answer was instantaneous, I was told that those whose hearts are opened will recognise God. As I pondered on this, I...

The Path of Detachment

I have been doing Phyllis Krystal’s – “Cutting the ties that bind” a version of detachment since 1991. Some years ago (2009), when I was in the temple in the presence of Swami (Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba), I was practicing Phyllis Krystal’s ‘F’igure 8’. As I was visualising the two circles and seeing the blue light going around the two circles, I realised that my visualisation had suddenly...

What is Spirituality? (Part 2)

Words In this Kaliyuga (dark age) words are misused. Words are sacred, whether they are used as positive affirmations or mantras, like ‘Om Gum Ganeshaya Namaha’ (calling on God in the form of the elephant to clear all obstacles). However, words have been become abused and inappropriately applied. Words like ‘bad’ and ‘wicked’ have different meanings now. At one time they referred to people who behaved irresponsibly, in a...

What is Spirituality? (Part 1)

In modern times, some people consider spirituality as disciplines that may include prayer, meditation, chanting, breathing exercises, ceremonies and/or rituals.  Spirituality is much more than this. These disciplines help your spiritual life. Furthermore, a lot of people practice these disciplines without focussing on the ONE. They think that just by doing these disciplines, it will make them spiritual. Spirituality is a way of life. The most important message of...

DEATH

Most people fear death and many of their decisions are tainted by this fear. What is death? We are told that Death is the permanent cessation of all biological functions. In other words, we are told that we are the body, a popular belief. The Truth is, we are not the body. The body is a vessel that contains the Soul/ Atma that enables us to experience life on...

TRUST and FAITH (Part 2)

BELIEF IN GOD What does TRUST mean? It means to have confidence, or faith in someone or something. To have trust in God, you need to experience God, otherwise it will not be true for you. How do we experience God? When you were a child you trusted your parents, you asked them for what you wanted. You knew that they loved you, and will give you what you...

Musings on LIFE (part four)

In Sanskrit, the whole of creation is known as Prakriti which is nature. Nature is the physical presence of ‘The One’ – ‘God’. I will use the term ‘The One’ instead of ‘God’ in this blog. Nowadays, the term ‘God’ has negative associations, and sometimes it is linked to superstition or foolishness. The Original Desire I mentioned in a previous blog that ‘The One’ separated ITSELF from itself to...
