Question: How is it that the soul cannot make progress in the inner world?

Question: What happens to people who die accidental deaths?
Question: Can people give their murderers very frightening experiences?

Question: Nowadays the way children are, they could easily beat up someone who tries to defend himself against them. What is the best thing to do in that kind of situation?
Question: Why does God tolerate the people who attack a good person? Why does God not say, "I will not let you destroy him"?
Question: If one boy is very bad, and another boy is not bad at all but he does not pray, why does God allow the bad boy to win over the boy who is not bad?
Question: The bad boy did not pray for protection, either.
Question: How can we be really satisfied with ourselves?
Question: Guru, people say that a flash of lightning cannot come down unless a little tiny flash goes up to meet it. Is the spiritual reality like that?

Question: What are the objectives of your Peace Concerts?
Question: In the book
Yoga and the Spiritual Life
, you talk about the soul being the eternal instrument. You also speak about the individual soul being connected to the universal soul. Could you please say more about that?
Mr. Steve Finley: The hardest part of baseball is every day trying to get your mind right to perform.

Question: Should we participate in the political movement that is going on now in our country?
