14th June 2014 – Saturday – God Decides
“God decides. This is the theme. Humans think but it doesn’t really finally end according to our thinking. We make decisions, they can go wrong, and make one decision that becomes correct. So if you can have that as a motto in life, leave it to God. We must set a certain trend but not pursue it too much. Set the trend and leave it. Ultimately, God will decide. This is a very simple, standard way of thinking from very early times in India.”

15th June 2014 – Sunday – Satya (Truth)
“I would not speak untruth, so I would not lie. And that would help.”

16th June 2014 – Monday – Raga (Attachment)
“What we like, we are attracted and get attached to it. This is called Raga. It is not permanent. Likes keep changing. What is liked is later disliked.”

20th June 2014 – Friday – Patanjali Yoga Sutra 2.55
So we have descriptions of higher states of consciousness. Usually, the mind is involved in the lower states, tables and chairs and people and what not. But you soar above that. Try and understand things that are more. And naturally that is quietness, clarity, understanding. So in a quiet state it is understood, appreciated, enjoyed. So we have heard a lot of descriptions. Men and women who have enjoyed this state and can remain in that state. They are lost. Later on they can create deep thinking, music and many such things. This is the description.
