The Miracle

Life is not a game and Earth
is not a ‘game board’. Look
upon all as the miracle that
it is and you will always
be rewarded with happiness
and fulfillment.

Trapped in Delusion

Those who remain ignorant of Me, from
one lifetime to the next, are born into
the wombs of those who are also ignorant.
Trapped in delusion, they fall ever
lower into the realms of existence.

My Weakness

That deed which in our guilt we today
call weakness, will appear tomorrow
as an essential link in the
complete chain of Man.

Relax Your Mind

Sit up straight.
Close mouth,
breathe deep slowly,
exhale,
relax your mind,
stop thinking,
feel anxiety drain from every muscle.
Breathe deep slowly,
exhale
relax your body,
feel every pain,
let it go.
Breathe deep slowly,
exhale.

Let him radiate boundless love towards
