"Money Can't Buy Happiness" by Jagad Guru Chris Butler - In reality, the glossy picture of the "happy rich person" that most people hold in their minds is simply an illusion. Money can buy sense gratification, but not actual happiness or satisfaction.

Why does a person claim ownership of a thing or of another person? To control it or them. And why does he want to control it? Usually because he wants to be the enjoyer of it.

Awareness - by Siddhaswarupananda


"Awareness" refers to that inseparable, essential, inherent attribute of yours, the self, which enables you to perceive thoughts, feelings, the world, etc., and indeed your own existence (self awareness = awareness that "I am").

Let me tell you a story from the life of Sir Isaac Newton. Among Newton's acquaintances and fellow scientists was an atheist, with whom he would sometimes debate. One morning this man paid Sir Isaac Newton a visit. When he entered Newton's study, he noted a remarkably well-made replica of the universe sitting on his desk. The model was complete with rotating planets, and Newton's associate was quite impressed by its detail and authentic nature.
"This is wonderful!" he exclaimed. "Who made it?"
'Nobody' replied Newton. His friend repeated the question and again Sir Isaac replied, "Nobody made it. It just appeared this morning by itself."
"Stop kidding me. Obviously someone made this. Someone possessed of great intelligence! I'd like to meet the person who made this."
"Where is your logic!' Newton exclaimed. 'You and your atheistic colleagues try to tell me that there
is no Supreme Being. You say that the vast and wonderfully intricate universe, of which this tiny model is but a replica, has created itself, whereas you adamantly deny the same possibility with this model! You say an intelligent person must have created this model, but you deny the Supreme Person behind the universe!"

Watching Your Dreams



Tonight, as you are lying in bed almost ready to fall asleep, watch your body fall asleep. Mentally say to yourself, I am aware that my body is falling asleep. As you fall deeper and deeper into sleep, there is a good chance that you will begin dreaming. In this state you will be half-awake, half-asleep. Watch these dreams. Mentally say to yourself as the dream begins, I am aware that I am dreaming. By persisting in this practice, you will eventually be aware that you are dreaming, even in deep sleep. But this ability is only a side benefit; the real point is to experience yourself as the viewer of the stream of mindstuff.

Jagad Guru Chris Butler - Perfection: Being In Tune With Reality


Perfection means being in tune with reality. The first thing we must understand is reality - the reality of my identity, i.e., my essence, position and function. Who am I? Just as a person does not identify himself as being the shirt that he is wearing, he also should not identify himself with the body that he is wearing.

If you know you're not the body, then you will probably have deeper, more spiritual goals in life. This will make you see the desires of your senses as something to control, not succumb to. Because you'll see your material desires as distinct from your true desires, you'll make an attempt to curb your material desires so they don't get in your way.

If the passing away of the body meant the end of your existence, then you, the self who existed along with the "childhood" body, should have ceased existing when that "childhood" body ceased to exist; and you, the self who existed along with the "adolescent" body, should have ceased existing when your "adolescent" body ceased to exist. The fact that you continued to exist, even though your body (bodies) did not, proves that your existence does not depend upon the continuing existence of a body.
