It will go away...

A disciple once went to his master say, excitedly,
"Master, I just had a vision!"
The master replied,
"Sit down. Meditate. It will go away."

Loving is an act of service

Loving is an act of service. When you love somebody you give him courage; you uplift, transform, and cause enlightenment in that person. You evoke creativity. Has anybody loved you in a way that increased your energy, creativity, and enlightenment? If his love did not do that, you have not yet tasted love.

Prayer brings man and God together

Prayer alone makes life happy, harmonious and worth living in this universe.
Prayer brings man and God together and with every sigh nearer and nearer.

Smoking tobacco or marijuana

Smoking tobacco or marijuana dulls the pineal gland and the sensitive cells around it that transmit communications from the Solar Angel. It is a very slow process, but eventually the damage reaches large proportions. Chewing tobacco kills the haemoglobin of the blood and opens the person to invite in unwanted entities.

The state of craving blocks all deeper experience

The state of craving for anything blocks all deeper experience. Nothing of value can happen to a mind which knows exactly what it wants. For nothing the mind can visualize and want is of much value.

-Nisargadatta Maharaj

Making the river Ganges flow uphill

The difficulty in weaning the mind from objects and fixing it on God is the same as in making the river Ganges flow uphill towards its source instead of its natural flow towards the ocean. Through strenuous efforts and renunciation, the mind must be trained to flow towards God, much against its will, if you want to free yourself from birth and death. There is no other way if you want to escape from worldly miseries and tribulations.
