I do not exist,
Am not an entity in this world or the next,
Did not descend from Adam and Eve or any origin story.
My place is the placeless, a trace of the traceless.
Neither body or soul.
I belong to the Beloved,
Have seen the two worlds as one
And that one call to and know, first, last, outer, inner,
Only that breath breathing human being.

'Excuses' is a simple word but a barrier to our spiritual evolution.
Nowadays, we see people making a lot of excuses just to stay in miseries, in other words, to stay far away from God. God is in the end of their everyday list. Priority is given to Career, Family, Money, to fulfill Desires, Gambling and God is either the last in the list or not even present in that list. For them they don't bother, as if God is their slave, He has to wait for them. They forget even their existence. They don't even wish to know how they come to exist. What's there behind all these creations.
If God has created you, then why not leave everything in His hands and accept whatever He is giving to you? Either there are excuses or complaints. People pray for their desires only. They don't pray to thank God for what He has given to them. They don't show their gratitude to God. Only excuses and complaints are there.
If you are closing your own doors...then who will miss? You will miss...
Learn to open your doors and accept with totality whatever God is giving you and thank Him for that. Show your Gratitude to Him.
In many people's eyes, tears come for only one purpose...their Ego is hurt. Do you know the importance of tears? Can you cry just to be thankful to God for what He has given to you? Can you cry for the longing of meeting with God?
Start developing that kind of tears in your eyes....in your eyes, the longing for God must be there......
Every cell in your body must be longing for God every moment...must be thankful to God....this is the real Prayer.

I have encountered death many times in my past lives but these death were encountered unconsciously.
It came when I was still unconscious, I could not enjoy its coming to me.
It came just like a great fear because it was only a small death, I can call it.
But in only one life, that is, in only this life I am blessed to encounter death fully conscious, full aware, and that also not one death but several deaths...Several Great Deaths...beautiful Deaths.....beyond words Death.......
I was fully aware when these great deaths were coming to me and knew they were coming step by step, listening to the sound of death, feeling those moments, enjoying every moment of it. And when it came to me, it was like am rejuvenating again and again. Death came and entered me, with this entrance...am renewed again, fresh, a new birth....Can't tell how many times I've taken birth in this life...
Now I can say that I love Death....I love its coming to me...I love those moments when Death entered me......I love those moments of freshness again and again...........
Yet where is birth and where is death....death is entering only the cloth....that is the body.....now am Death..............

One day a young lady was driving along with her father. They came upon a storm, and the young lady asked her father, "What should I do?"
He said "keep driving". Cars began to pull over to the side, the storm was getting worse.
"What should I do?" the young lady asked.
"Keep driving," her father replied.
On up a few feet, she noticed that eighteen wheelers were also pulling over. She told her dad, "I must pull over, I can barely see ahead. It is terrible, and everyone is pulling over!"
Her father told her, "Don't give up, just keep driving!"
Now the storm was terrible, but she never stopped driving, and soon she could see a little more clearly. After a couple of miles she was again on dry land, and the sun came out.
Her father said, "Now you can pull over and get out."
She said "But why now?"
He said "When you get out, look back at all the people that gave up and are
Still in the storm, because you never gave up your storm is now over."
By Malladi Venkata Krishna Murthy
This is how it must be in the path of Truth...never give up...instead, increase your determination every moment to go forward............you will reach...........

A little boy is telling his Grandma how "everything" is going wrong: school, family problems, and severe health problems in the family. Meanwhile, Grandma is baking a cake. She asks her grandson if he would like a snack, which of course he does.
"Here, have some cooking oil," she says. "Yuck" says the boy.
"Then how about a couple raw eggs?"
"Gross, Grandma!" he replies.
"Would you prefer some flour then? Or maybe some baking soda?" she asks.
"Grandma, those are all yucky!" he replied.
To which Grandma replies: "Yes, all those things seem to taste bad all by themselves. But when they are mixed together in the right amounts and the right manner, they make a delicious cake!"
She continued, "God works the same way. Many times we wonder why he would let us go through such bad and difficult times. But God knows that when He puts these things all in His order, they always work for good! We just have to trust Him and, eventually, they will all make something wonderful!"
