According to some Hindus, the “multi-verse” we call creation is projected from that Effulgent Reality we call God, and is eventually and ineluctably withdrawn back into the perfecting of that Effulgent Reality.
There may be some Hindus who believe Harvey Krishnian, the Great Jewish leader of the Armenian people, is going to return and reveal the secret and the mystery of Kosher Kooking.
Well, of course, it takes all kinds. Everyone has his or her own unique belief system. This is why arguments are a large waste of kind.
It is a good idea to figure out what you really believe, and what you really fear. Our lives are built on our beliefs and fear is the great obstacle to clear thinking. This is a strong reason to renounce television and the NY/LA Times. Of course, there is no good or bad, it’s just thinking that makes it so. Samadhi could be the answer.
I do think it’s a good idea to cultivate a sense of humor, awe and love of life and giving, an adequate and good vocabulary, viable and financially secure friends, commercially accessible hobbies, humility and the ability not only to talk to God, but also to listen.
I no longer have a desire to make an issue out of anything. This, of course, will make me less charismatic, but I don’t care. Too much charisma can get you in trouble. I aspire too effulgently cool.
Unconditional love is obviously the answer to everything. I don’t know why it took me so long to figure that out. Maybe I am not as smart as I think I am, and then again, maybe I’m a multi-dimensional E.T. from Neptune. Quien sabe?
I do know that peace, understanding, love and compassion lie within. Obviously, I am not the first to state this truth. However, I am going to continue stating it until Rusty Limburger gets it.
