I’ll tell you what slaves I believe we’ve become. We are slaves to "holding on." Holding on to our lives, our status, our fun, to our pain, you name it. Holding on is where our security lies. Holding on has a known history. Holding on is doable.
The world is changing, that’s obvious. Either you get on board, or you fall behind.
On board means flexibility. Fall behind means inflexibility; holding on to the past. Change is about the future, and the future is now. There are so many eras of the past, along with past karma, DNA, etc. that it can grab and hold a student without the student even knowing it. Don’t be one subject to these ill forces.

Forgiveness is from heart to heart, so they say. I say that’s true and a real good beginning. Heart to heart is a commitment. It’s not a conclusion. Heart to heart is an awareness, an acknowledgement, an identity, with the forgiven. It’s a wonderful, rewarding and enlightening, thing. But, there’s more.
We believe that we have faith in God, but have we surrendered, truly surrendered? True faith and surrender go together. I’m not saying that a little surrender won’t help a lot...it will.
The way to God’s attention is through His praise. Praise God, don’t judge Him. He’s beyond your judgement.
Praise God, Praise Guru, Praise the Almighty. That’s all you hear from all great religions. That’s because it’s true and it works. Thousands of years of history stand behind the benefits in praise of God. God wants your praise.
Yes, God knows that you can easily judge Him. He made it that way. He’s made it easy to judge His work. Wrongful actions are on display everywhere.

I have recently had COVID (most likely the Omnicron variant). You may be interested in hearing about what I experienced and learned.
I am a yogi, my body is 50 years old and generally in good health. I had two Pfizer vaccine shots (and unfortunately had not received the booster). The media suggested that the Omnicron may be “milder” than the Delta variant. That was not my experience.
God is All. We accept that. All great religions accept that and it happens to be true. Because God is All, then God must be both good and evil, but how can that be? If He’s good, He can’t do bad things, and vice versa. Or, can He?
Sat Nam Dear Family,
Much of the time people see what they want, usually at times when they can’t deal with any other view. Let me give you a vivid example.
Ahmaud Arbery is a name and story we all should know, and I’m sure most do. Briefly, he was cornered down, shot and killed. He was black. His murders are white. This happened in a small southern Georgia town. An eleven white, one black jury was a product of what’s called preemptive right. It looked bad, real bad for the prosecution who was arguing for justice for Ahmund.
God is a "carrot and stick" kind of God, balanced through compassion along the way. He supports you, and protects you. He provides for you, and He forgives you. Most of all, He loves you so much that he knows how much you experience it. God has beautiful carrots.
On the other hand, there is a minimum God requires for his favor. The cost is gratitude. If, or when, gratitude wanes, God’s favor wanes accordingly, until God’s favor appears to turn into punishment.
There are three realms of truth: elementary, circumstantial, and Infinite. Basically, they’re self-explanatory. Elementary is your perception of reality as an earthly function. Circumstantial is time-sensitive and is a heavenly function. Infinite is true, was true, and will always be true, and is a Godly function. Pretty straight forward.
One who sees life through these three lenses, magnifies his perception geometrically. Here’s the deal. If you haven’t visited the circumstantial realm, or the Infinite realm of truth, as most people don’t, you won’t, and shouldn’t believe either really exist, or that these realms are the truth. That’s the way it is and I can’t do anything about it except pray for God’s mercy.
Windows 11 will be officially released on Tuesday, October 5th. So why would you care? Well, it’s not only a lot more beautiful than Windows 10, but it’s also a faster, more stable and more elegant operating system.
