With Truth, there is no compromise. In other words, something is either true or false, there is no in between. 2 + 2 = 4 – True 2 + 2 = 4.01 – False Another way to put it is: Truth is like a magnet that only picks up or attracts things that are magnetic […]

In the science fiction TV series Star Trek, Starfleet explorers from the Federation of Planets have a guiding principle they live by called the Prime Directive which prevents them from interfering with the development of other worlds and species. In other words, they don’t get involved with local politics. I believe one reason why the […]

In a scripture called Srimad Bhagwat we come across a story of Ajamil, the great sinner who got redemption after witnessing his brief death and then surviving for another year. The story goes like this: Ajamil was very pious and a learned scholar in his youth. While collecting flowers in the garden for the worship […]

Our mind is bound by limits, hence it is restless but curious too. It may ponder such questions as: How big is the universe, and if it can be sized what is beyond it? No wonder that the mind which has no physical identity and whose location in the body has not been determined even, […]

While I was talking a walk by the canal, I noticed a man riding on his bicycle while instructing two girls rowing in a boat. As he had a higher vantage point than the two girls, he could guide them safely. He even reminded them when to look back. Since this man is not always […]

The other day I realised that if there’s anything I may have learned so far on the path of spirituality it’s that not Spirit but ego is running the show. That brought me down to earth with a bump, but it’s okay. It comes with the territory of living a dream. Reality doesn’t have to […]

6″: Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: “7”: (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) “8”: We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. 2 Corinthians […]

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” Psalm 46: 1 Where there is a cause, there is always an effect. I have observed that at any moment I am either being the cause and in control of my life experiences or I am being the effect and at the whim […]

“In God’s eyes nothing is large or small. Were it not for His perfect nicety in constructing the tiny atom, could the skies wear the proud structures of Vega, Acturus? Distinctions of “important” and “unimportant” are surely unknown to the Lord, lest, for want of a pin, the cosmos collapse!” Autobiography of a Yogi by […]

Mind is the director, the actor, and the stage of everything that seems to happen. The whole physical universe is purely mental. In reality nothing ever happens. Reality is total, perfect, undivided, and changeless. The body does appear to have a brain, but it’s not the brain that does the thinking. Space and time, matter […]

I believe in the importance of being true to myself in every moment by doing what I love. How is it possible to continuously do what you love when there are things you sometimes have to do that you don’t particularly enjoy? Easy, just think about what you love. For instance, I recently attended my […]

I have observed life provides limitless opportunities for fun and laughter, sometimes in the most unlikely places. The other day I accompanied my mother to the hospital. At the waiting room, my mother chose where she wanted to sit and I sat next to her. There was an elderly lady sitting to my right. After […]

I believe the Universe is rather like an insurance policy. Insurance companies agree to cover policy holders in times of crisis. However, it’s up to the policy holders to not only claim what they are entitled to but to prove their entitlement. Don’t expect the insurance company to do it for you. In the same […]

Mystics have shared their visions of a world where humans and animals live together in perfect harmony, but methinks there is a huge price to pay for this reality. As I was walking through a park I noticed this pigeon taking his evening constitutional ahead of me. As the pigeon was taking his time, I […]

A year ago my mother was given a potted Bologie vegetable plant which she put on the kitchen window sill. While she was on holidays, she asked me to look after the plant. I decided to name the plant Agnes after the British supermodel Agyness (same pronunciation but different spelling). Agnes and I developed a […]

I believe there’s nothing like music. While I was raised as a Christian, there was a lot that didn’t ring true for me. As soon as I was old enough to make my own decisions, I rejected Christianity and the beliefs associated with it to explore what the meaning of life means for me. While […]

One of my friends has been asking: How to surrender to God?

I don’t see a situation that needs his surrendering to God. He is tempted […]
