A young Australian friend of mine was a military general in one of his previous incarnations. In that same incarnation, he became fed up with his so-called name, fame and power. He renounced everything and wanted to realise God. This happened not in his immediate past incarnation, but long before. Still he is in search of God-realisation.
Rome was not built in a day. Even so, God-realisation is not like instant coffee. It takes a little time! You have to get the coffee ready. You have to prepare the beans and all that!
