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.

In practicing affectionate detachment, we are learning to live in the here and now, right in the moment. We are awakening the power of direct cognition, the power that enables us to understand what happens, when it happens and why it happens.
