Heaven and Hell; Keeping Good Company

A cyberspace devotee from Trinidad asks if there is a heaven and a hell. Gurudeva explains that heaven and hell can be translated into the higher nature and the lower nature. Another cyber devotee from Malaysia wonders why people don't practice what they preach. Gurudeva suggests that a path be chosen and that one associates with those on the same path to do well in life.

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.
