Table of Contents
Question: What should I do during meditation?
Question: What is the best time of day for my daily meditations, and what is the best length of time for these meditations?
Question: How can we always see the divine qualities in others?
Question: Before I came here my thoughts wandered and I was feeling negative. What can I do to clear my head so I can be stronger in my mind and soul?
Question: I sometimes wonder if you ever get tired and discouraged. You have the most difficult job that has ever existed.
Question: How can we constantly feel that we are your instrument?
Question: I would like to know if having pets necessarily slows down your spiritual progress.
Question: How do you offer your soul's oneness to people who aren't disciples, without entering into their consciousness?
Question: Guru, I was wondering if you could explain what thought actually is.
Question: When we have fun imitating other people, what actually happens on the inner planes?
Question: Can you teach us how to live in our hearts?
Question: You have talked about the way a soul remains around after it has left the body to see if people are feeling sorry for the deceased. I have always thought that the soul is perfect. How can it have jealousy and desires?

Question: Does every soul, when it comes down to earth, want to work for the Supreme?
Question: I would like to know the difference between Cosmic Consciousness and Christ Consciousness.
Question: Is what you teach a religion?
Question: I've heard that when one accepts a spiritual path, there is a point at which one must surrender oneself to a Guru who is higher than himself.

This idea of scepticism and questioning seems to contradict the idea of surrender.

Question: How can you take the mind to the heart? It seems impossible.
Question: How can I conquer the animal in me?
Question: What can I do to clear my mind of old emotional attachments? Why don't they leave my mind?
Question: Is every event in our lives predestined, or is there just a general direction?
Question: Guru, I was wondering what is the difference between attaining
and attaining realisation?
Question: How can anything be outside the Will of the Supreme?
Question: Guru, I was told that some disciples go to New York to see you on their birthdays. Is it more important to you that we all go on your birthday or on our birthdays?
Question: Do you have any practical suggestions for athletics, especially for the workers at the restaurant?
Question: Guru, I've been earning my living through music for about ten years, but now it's very difficult for me to take money for my art. I feel that I only want to serve the Supreme through music.
Question: How can we become more tolerant and understanding?
Question: Guru, can the aspirant tell whether he is falling asleep or if his mind has just become quiet and he is feeling soothed?
Question: When I'm asleep, sometimes I feel like my being is being energised very intensely.
Question: I'd like to know how I can become more responsible in both my inner life and my outer life.
Question: How can we protect ourselves from the mind and from making a Himalayan mistake, especially when we are making decisions or judgements?
