Approaching the Spiritual Master

A single moment with a (Spiritual) Master can transform your life. Recently, I read about how there are four types who approach a Master. Follower – they are more of a spectator.

If someone throws a stone…

We all have the power within us to change how we want to live and perceive life. If we are consumed with our thoughts too much, we tend to feel heavy, tired, sleepy, lethargic.

With Baba Ji – my journey continues…

You can wake up in the morning, everything will occur as normal but something is missing, something just doesn’t feel right.

Sipping on some coffee

It is one of those days where I get an extra hour of sleep as that is my body’s idea of a lie-in. I enjoy that extra one hour and I contemplate on what I am thankful for and what I plan for the day. Planning for the day is a structure that I likeContinue reading “Sipping on some coffee”

Being on the Right Path is Not Enlightenment

Being on the spiritual path is one thing. Being enlightened is totally another thing. Sometimes I feel when I hear people talking about being enlightened, it really is not enlightenment at all.

My Satguru – Why I still need Him!

I look at the picture of my Satguru, the Enlightened Teacher that has transformed my life and I can’t thank Him enough for all He has done. His words although said in a simple way, once you get thinking about it, they enter a depth you never saw in the first instance. Is my SatguruContinue reading “My Satguru – Why I still need Him!”

Let’s be Practical!

Once the Guru says something, do I take it with a pinch of salt and continue with my own way? Or do I take a moment to think and act accordingly to as the Guru prescribes. We read in our scriptures, in stories like the Puranas of devotees who acted simply at the hint ofContinue reading “Let’s be Practical!”

Nirankar – The Love of my Life

A vast, changeless, void that looks like nothingness or emptiness. An atom is 99.9% pure energy and what we see is really just 0.01% of the atom. The Formless Reality is everywhere and in everything. It is a state beyond nothingness. Nothingness cannot be nothing when you can observe nothingness. If an observer is presentContinue reading “Nirankar – The Love of my Life”
