Table of Contents
Inspiration and aspiration
Question: Who is a real fool?
Question: Is there any contradiction between seeking worldly possessions and riches and seeking the Absolute Truth?
Question: How can I maintain the inspiration that I get here when I go back to Sweden?
Question: I don't understand the connection between aspiration and manifestation. When I was at home, I was so inspired. But now that I have come here to visit, it seems confusing.
Question: You told us that aspiration and manifestation have to go together. My problem is manifestation. What can I do? When I am in my own country I feel that everything is so difficult.
Question: What is the difference between an ordinary mind and heart and a mind and heart that have been transformed?
Question: How can you obtain a love for humanity in a true practical sense? That is easy to say but difficult to practise.
Question: Guru, how can I always love with wisdom?
Question: Would you clarify, Guru, the difference between compassion and love?
Question: How does concern differ from compassion and love?
Question: How can one keep focused on the dimension of love and be protected from the external forces in order to let the power come through?
Surrender and oneness
Surrender and capacity
Question: I'm not a follower of your path, but sometimes I think of the path of devotion and surrender, and when I do, my head seems to fight it very strongly. It says, "No, you cannot surrender," because I don't feel as if I know exactly what it is that I am surrendering to, and it makes me feel that I am being blind in a way.
Question: Could you speak a little bit about will-power and surrender?
Question: How can we live more with humility?
Question: Is there a spiritual way to be defeated by someone?
