What I want to share from my experiences is that love conquers everything.It is my hope that it will inspire the readers to open their hearts to the Divine. If we can try to understand that we all are equally part of the Divine and are here to achieve this greater Truth and to realise our Self - if we make this our goal and do everything with Love…then everything will be lovely and you will always be happy.

Let’s analyse how the human body is.....

The Shastras say that the human body is made of the five elements, the  Pancha Tattva. If you look at these five elements, they are constantly at war with each other.
They can’t be in peace with each other. Can water be in peace with fire? No, it can’t be! That’s why in the human body there is so much imbalance. Even if you see somebody appearing perfect on the outside, there’s no such thing as perfection like that. There is always something going wrong in
the body. Imagine if all the five elements would start fighting with each other, what would happen? It would be terrible, catastrophic. This is within you, not outside! That is what is happening in people.Actually, the human being, in the ladder of creation, is at the top. It’s true, because only by attaining a human body, a human life, you can really attain the Creator
and become One with the Creator. Nowadays when you analyse the people, when you look at people walking
around, you see them walking, yet they are not present in their body. The elements are so much at war inside of them that they are somewhere else. What keeps these elements in balance in us is the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of God within one’s Self. How would you energise this Spirit? If the Spirit leaves you, you fall dead. You lose everything. Here, when you are alive, you say “This is mine, that is mine; it’s my possession.” Imagine if the Spirit leaves you; what will happen? What is yours? What is mine? Nothing stays. The Gita says  “ You come with nothing and you will leave with nothing.” All that you take, you will leave here. We have incarnated for a reason. We have a human body for a reason, but we will not find this reason until we turn this body into pure Love and devotion. This is where your sadhana comes in. When you develop this pure Love and devotion, then you will really know the meaning of this human body; then you will really enjoy being in this body; then you will know the purpose of being here. Otherwise, you will go left-right, left-right, left-right, left-right  and when the boat sinks, having no boatman, you will sink. Then you have to wait for another life. So don’t waste time, because the time you waste is gone and once it’s gone, don’t think you will have it again. You are living in the right time, the best time of all.
