Table of Contents
Question: I used to feel and see a golden light around my heart, but now I no longer do. How can I regain this wonderful presence?
Question: How can you tell the difference between true intuition and imagination?
Question: How can one tell the difference between the Will of God and wishful thinking?
Question: Did you see any basic differences in the quality of aspiration or the quality of the souls in different countries of the world? And do you feel that your trip was successful?
Question: Your philosophy states that the soul is always making progress, but how do you reconcile that with the fact that when someone commits suicide his soul falls?
Question: Different organisations like the United Nations or the government of a country have souls. I know that you feel that these different souls have different qualities. But is there something inherent in all of them that is unchangeable and the same?
Question: Many years ago, when people got certain diseases they would have died quite quickly. But medical science has developed medicines that allow people who have these diseases now to stay alive, although they are usually unable to function normally and have to remain in a hospital bed. If a person's life is prolonged by medicines in spite of the agony of the body, when it would have been given up at an earlier period of history, is there any spiritual benefit from it?
Question: Guru, you said if we wish to serve the world we must have the proper attitude. Could you explain please what that attitude is.
Question: When one enters into the spiritual life, does the kundalini automatically arise, or does this only happen in certain people?
Question: Can you give us some suggestions on how we might use in our jobs the Light, Joy, Bliss and other things that we receive in our meditation here?
Question: Can an individual have a feeling of insecurity because of a feeling of separation from God?
Question: What is our duty to our close ones living on earth and also to the ones in the other world? I think it is probably good to pray for them, but sometimes I feel close to someone and sometimes I feel a long distance away. Also, I have a feeling sometimes that people may be reincarnated.
Question: Now, I would very much like to learn something about what the spiritual heart is like, and what connection it has with the other
and with the Kundalini power. Also, how does the
the centre between the eyebrows, affect the spiritual heart?
Question: I would like to know the difference between prayer and meditation.
Appendix: these quotes, from other writings of Sri Chinmoy, were included in the first editions.
