East and West

Sometimes our questions to Gurudeva stimulate a response that is not what we expected. That may be the case with today's question from cyberspace, which asks, "Why were all the major religions born in the middle east?" Gurudeva answers that there were many other "major" religions in the world, once upon a time.

We must live in the now to follow the path to enlightenment. In the lower realms of the mind, where time and space seem very real, we are worried about the past or concerned about the future. These two intermingle and limit conscious awareness.
