most important in this world, regardless whatever our mission, is
love one another, love each other. If we do not do that then we
lack a lot of things ..."
The greater the challenge, the greater our spiritual understanding
Whenever the situation needs our love to show it, we have to show
our love and we have to show some actions, speech and thoughts
always in loving kindness. That's the best for our spiritual
growth and best for our fellow beings.
All of us are great beings from heaven. All of the human beings
born in this world are great heavenly beings, and the most courageous.
Because if we were not great, we would not be courageous, we'd never
have enough guts to come down to this world. We never could come,
we'd never dare come.
Before we came
here we came with the high ideal, with the best intention, with
the good heart and a mighty determination to help and to improve
ourselves spiritually, even also by helping people in this world.
But when we came here, most of us forgot and we prefer to sleep,
eat, and go around playing. We prefer to take care of our own interests
and sometimes forget what's our purpose before we came here, why
we came here. It is also good that we forget, it's good. And then
we do not feel very sorry for ourselves because we'd like to go
back there; it's better in heaven than here.
But if we meditate,
then unconsciously our soul will remember. Then we don't have to
feel too much suffering because we live in this very confined, very
unhappy surrounding. And then we feel more settled down, not attached
to the world but settle down in the world. And then we know that
we have to finish our mission. And then whether we realize or not,
inside we will, the soul will understand that we have to accomplish
our mission on Earth and then we will go back home very soon.
beings never want to come here. They don't have courage. For example,
you are staying in a beautiful place like this, so clean and nice.
If you had to go into a filthy... like a place where people put
the waste water and garbage and things like that, and lock yourself
in there everyday, would you like it? A small place, a small confined
space with a lot of filth and garbage everyday like this, could
you like, would you like? This is what happens to a spiritual being
from heaven when they come down and take the confinement of this
Some come because
they want to develop this planet into a more beautiful place. Yeah,
because you remember when you read the history of the planet, the
planet was not like this before. It was like a big dense jungle
and nobody lived. And it was not comfortable and not beautiful.
And because this planet is connected with heavenly plan of existence
therefore we have to work together. And because we are also heavenly
beings connected with other heavenly beings, so whatever we do here
affects them also. A spirit if it's too high it's not affected,
the lower a little bit affected. Therefore if we do something good,
oh, they are very joyful and very happy. If we do something damaging
to the world and then affect the universe, they are very worried
and also very disturbed. That's why every of us have some so called
"guardian angels", who are supposed to help us to do our
mission in this world. And then depends on what kind of job we do,
we will have more angels or less angels, stronger angel or just
ordinary angel, etc...
Due to their
ignorance they forget their origin, they forget their noble purpose
in this world, and they forget that whatever they are given in this
world are only instruments so they can fulfill their task. But then
they forget and then they are entrapped into these beautiful instruments
or situations, and then they get bound here. They cannot go home.
Sometimes it takes a long time until they wake up. Meanwhile all
the spiritual beings in heaven are feeling sorry for them, want
to help them, want to pull them up, but it's sometimes difficult.
So it's good that you wake up. (Master laughs.) It's good that you
realize that you are not the physical body of this world, that you
have a home in heaven.
should treat all our mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters like all
spiritual brothers and sisters. Because actually that's all we are,
that's what we are. Before we came here we made a covenant with
each other saying, "Oh! You be my parents, you be my son, you
be my sister, you be my teacher, you be my friend and all that."
Everyone comes together to help each other to achieve the purpose
of their mission and also to achieve a higher position in the spiritual
world. It's not that because of a higher position that we come here.
Just that we have been courageous, we want to try, we want to take
the challenge. And then of course the greater the challenge, the
greater our spiritual understanding and growth. And then we become,
of course, a higher spiritual being through our knowledge and labor
that we have offered to the universe. And then heavenly beings of
course respect us more and then give us more, even higher responsibilities.
if you are born in a rich family and then if you don't work, if
your parents spoiled you too much and didn't let you go out and
learn and work in different jobs to have experience of your growth,
of your talents and your intelligence and your physical power, then
you just hang around in the house and eating, sleeping, doing something,
but do not have the experience and the capability of a grown up
and mature person. And then even your parents cannot entrust you
with their great possessions. So like if the parents go away and
then maybe you inherit the possessions because you are the only
one. But then you don't know how to manage the business and then
you let the business fall apart and then you become poor also. That's
why God let us come here, to study and to strengthen our abilities.
The more we work, the more we try to help other people, the more
The most important
in this world, regardless whatever our mission, is love one another,
love each other. If we do not do that then we lack a lot of things.
And whatever job we do we have to do it wholeheartedly. Moreover
we still have to help our fellow beings in whatever way we can,
make them happy, make them feel loved. And whenever the situation
needs our love to show it, we have to show our love and we have
to show some actions, speech and thoughts always in loving kindness.
That's the best for our spiritual growth and best for our fellow
So the more
people practice like this, the purer the world will become or at
least it's balanced, it's not too bad that nobody can breathe and
nobody can stay inside. That's how we can fulfill our mission on
Earth to bless this world. So do you see how important it is to
keep our speech and mind and actions pure? We have to help also
with social work. Whatever we can do to help lessen the suffering,
that is the most noble work which will not only be recognized in
this world, but also praised by heaven.
That's why when
you give someone who needs it, needs the love or needs some material
comfort, at that time you feel very good. Why do you feel good?
Because at that time you are one with heaven. You're doing heavenly
work. You're doing the correct work and you're truly representing
heaven in doing all this charitable work. Maybe these people also
are spiritual beings. They sacrifice themselves, they're born poor
so that you can learn the lesson of love. That's why all the Masters
from ancient times advise us that when we give something, we do
good to someone, we should not be proud. We might feel good, okay,
but we should be thankful that we have had the opportunity to do
There was a
very famous book published recently in America, in which a person
who died went to heaven and she was shown many different functions
of the human beings in this world. In one of the things she was
shown was a man, dirty, drunken, old and lonely who was kind of
sleeping in the corner of the street. And then the heavenly being
asked her if she knows who he is. And from heaven, she looked down,
she said, "Why, it's a drunken, stupid man." Because he
really looked drunk, stupid and ugly and dirty and filthy and old
But the heavenly
beings revealed to her his real identity after that. And then she
knew that this person was a very great heavenly being, respected
by all heaven. He sacrificed his time on the Earth existence to
help his friend. His friend is a lawyer, is about a block away on
the same street. And the lawyer is always doing some good work for
poor people and for the injustice in the country. But every time
he saw this drunken man he's determined to do more, otherwise he
forgets or he slackens in his efforts.
But both of
them have forgotten their promise with each other, to help each
other before they came to Earth. Because they were good friends
in heaven and that's how they help each other. But of course the
lawyer will get all the glory and credit and the drunk gets all
the cursing and all the despite from the people. And knowing and
not knowing both of them are doing their job very well until the
time comes, then they go back to heaven. And being a drunk man just
laying there, (Master laughs) just always reminding his friend to
try to fight for the poor, for the desperate people, the homeless
and the like...
