Table of Contents
Question: If we pray for our grandparents who died long ago, do our prayers help them in their new incarnation?
Question: How is expectation different from desire?
Who am I not?
Question: Could you please speak about music?
Question: My spiritual life is like a roller coaster. I go up and then I go all the way down. When will that end? When will I only go up?
Question: What role does patience play in our spiritual lives when we feel that if we do not transform our nature quickly, it will be too late?
Question: Some things take a long time to accomplish in the outer world. How can we be sure that we are exercising patience and not developing complacency?
Question: Will God give us any warning before He runs out of His Patience?
Question: Is there any difference between exercising patience towards one's own life and exercising patience towards others?
Question: Recently you said that the philosophy of the New Millennium is to see only the good qualities in yourself and others. If you only see the good, then patience would not need to exist. Is that true?
Question: Is there some way to feel that patience is very dynamic and that it is not just waiting?
Question: You say that if we have dynamism in patience, that implies a destructive power. How should we deal with imperfection in ourselves that keeps recurring? If we want to destroy it with dynamism, is that bad? On the other hand, will God's Justice not have a destructive power?
Question: When God uses His Justice-Light, how can we be grateful rather than insecure?
Question: Can you tell us how we can bring down light from Above or from within?
Question: How can we need God desperately and at the same time have patience?
Question: Why is humanity so far away from God? If God is inside everyone, why are we not seeing that?
Question: What is the difference between your poise and your patience?
Question: When the Supreme has to exercise His Patience, does the seeker have to have more intuition to recognise God's warnings?
Question: Does God's Patience have the capacity to inspire people to change their lives?
Question: How can we best deal with the anger that comes with dynamism?
Question: Sometimes so-called unevolved things — for example, a dog — can have such noble qualities. A dog might give its life to save somebody. On the other hand, a human being that is more evolved might have such petty qualities.
Question: You have said that everything has a soul. What things have a heart? For example, I am sure animals have a heart, but do plants have a heart? Do rocks have a heart?
Question: How can we increase and maintain our intensity?
Question: In your poetry you sometimes use 'my Supreme' or 'God' or 'my Lord'. I know that personally I have a different feeling or response to each one. From your point of view, is there a different consciousness or feeling behind the names?
Question: Is there any special way to assimilate everything that you have given us on the Christmas trip?
Question: If we pray for our grandparents who died long ago, do our prayers help them in their new incarnation? ›
