You Are Free

Did you know that you have to make a formula if you really want to practice and enjoy life. I’m not telling you to renounce the world and go to the Himalayas with Swami Rama, this is not my point. I want you to live here and enjoy life and yet remain above, as a realized being, a jivan mukta. How is it possible? Many people become swamis and how many swamis disappoint us? I once asked my Master, “What is this fun in the world? So many swamis?” He said, “Look here, everybody has good intentions to do something but they don’t. They are not competent, they are not able, they don’t find the way, so don’t blame anyone. They are trying, they are making efforts.”

I said, “Ok. Out of 13,000 swamis I met in my life, I met only three people, rare people.” Then I said, “Why, why this?” He said, “All other swamis are like a hedge, and the rare ones are like the real flowers.” He told me, “Come on. I’ll make a formula for you. Share it with your students, share it with the people who come in touch with you: All the things of the world are meant for you. Please enjoy them. But they are not yours, don’t get attached to them.” You have no right to get attached to them. There is nothing wrong with your enjoyment. If there is anything wrong it’s getting attached. Where are you committing a mistake? You get attached to the things of the world which are not yours. Actually they are meant for you.

So the first principle is that all the things of the world are meant for me. I will enjoy them but I will not get attached. Second principle, I will be conscious of the truth or fact that the Lord of life is within me. Thirdly, I will meditate, go within, beyond body, breath, and mind, to enjoy that silence which is the living silence within. If you just follow these principles, you are free.

Think About It...

Some people extol the virtues of therapy, others think it's a waste of time and money. I personally swear by massage therapy, chocolate therapy, and retail therapy (preferably a combination of all three in the same afternoon.)


I Choose To Be Gentle

Because nothing is won by force. I choose to be gentle.

If I raise my voice may it only be in praise.

If I clinch my fist, may it be only in prayer.

If I make a demand, may it be only of myself.

Happy Valentines Day

Because love always perseveres…
Help my heart continually beat with love for You and others.
Thank you for this day when we celebrate love,
and for showing us what that word really means.

“Whatever the course of our lives, we should receive them as the highest gift from the hand of God, in which equally reposed the power to do nothing whatever for us.

Indeed, we should accept misfortune not only in thanks, but in infinite gratitude to Providence, which by such means detaches us from an excessive love of Earthly things and elevates our minds to the celestial and the divine.”

Your Book

Friday, February 06, 2009


Grace defines you. As grace sinks in, earthly labels fade. Society labels you like a can on an assembly line. Stupid, Unproductive, Slow learner, Fast talker. Quitter, Cheapskate. But as grace infiltrates, criticism disintegrates. You know that you are not who they say you are. You are who God says you are. Spiritually alive. Heavenly positioned. Connected to the Father. A billboard of mercy. An honored child.

Of course, not all labels are negative. Some people regard you as beautiful, clever, successful, or efficient. But even a White House office doesn't compare with being "seated with him in the heavenly realms."

Let grace create your resume....
