The lungs of the earth

“For me, trees have always been the most penetrating preachers. I revere them when they live in tribes and families, in forests and groves. And even more I revere them when they stand alone. They are like lonely persons. Not like hermits who have stolen away out of some weakness, but like great, solitary men, like Beethoven and Nietzsche. In their highest boughs the world rustles, their roots rest in infinity; but they do not lose themselves there, they struggle with all the force of their lives for one thing only: to fulfill themselves according to their own laws, to build up their own form, to represent themselves.

Nothing is holier, nothing is more exemplary

Astral Travelling

You are the light in the body

By Gauri Mataji Devi

Astral Travelling is a process of consciously DETACHING oneself from the gross body and moving on the “astral” or subtle level. It is also called OBE (“out of body experience”).

Astral Travelling is perfectly within the power of each individual. Many people do it unconsciously, sometimes during sleep or in cases of severe suffering or failure of the body system. However, conscious remembrance in the waking state is not the final or only proof of Astral Travelling during sleep/dream, or even a proof that you have indeed had any dreams or not. Everybody dreams, but a very small number of people in specific circumstances actually remember

Life's Journey


Tucked away in our subconscious is an idyllic vision. We see ourselves on a long trip that spans the continent. We are travelling by train. Out the windows we drink in the passing scene of cars on nearby highways, of children waving at a crossing, of cattle grazing on a distant hillside, of row upon row of corn and wheat, of flatlands and valleys, of city skylines and village halls.

But uppermost in our minds is the final destination. On a certain day at a certain hour we will pull into the station. Bands will be playing and flags waving. Once we get there so many wonderful dreams will come true and pieces of our lives will fit together

The path

The twin temptations of liberation and sense pleasure are enticing us away from our prospect of Divine wealth.

But the plane of devotion protects us but bestows the soul with the taste of bliss.

“Externally there is much to cry for – internally there is more to smile for.

And thus the heart will break, yet brokenly live on.”

~ Byron, Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage

It cannot survive in the ‘now’.”

~ Eckhart Tolle


“Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. Because for those who love with heart and soul there is no such thing as separation.”

Who is in the house of my heart,

I cried in the middle of the night.

Love said,

“It is I, but what are all these images that fill your


I said, they are the reflection of your beautiful face.

Love asked,

“But what is this image full of pain?”

I said, it is me lost in the sorrows of life

and showed Love my soul full of wounds.

Love offered me one end of a thread and said:

“Take it so I can pull you back

but do not break the delicate string.”

I reached towards it but Love struck my hand.

I asked, why the harshness?

Love said,

“To remind you that whoever comes to Love’s

A husband takes his wife to play her first game of golf….. Of course, the wife promptly hacked her first shot right through the window of the biggest house adjacent to the course. The husband cringed, “I warned you to be careful! Now we’ll have to go up there, find the owner, apologize and see how much your lousy drive is going to cost us.”

So the couple walked up to the house and knocked on the door. A warm voice said, “Come on in.” When they opened the door they saw the damage that was done: glass was all over the place, and a broken antique bottle was lying on its side near the broken window. A man

Postman Bill

It was Postman Bill’s last day on the job after 35 years of carrying the mail through all kinds of weather to the same neighbourhood.

When he arrived at the first house on his route, he was greeted by the whole family there, who all hugged and congratulated him and sent him on his way with a gift cheque for $500.

At the second house they presented him fine Cuban cigars in an 18-carat gold box.

The folks at the third house handed him a case of 30-year old Scotch whisky.

At the fourth house he was met at the door by a dumb blonde in her lingerie.

She took him by the arm and led him up the stairs

Tongue Twisters

Mastering language

1. If you understand, say “understand”. If you don’t understand, say “don’t understand”. But if you understand and say “don’t understand”. How do I understand that you understand? Understand!

2. For example, She sells sea shells on the sea shore. The shells that she sells are sea shells I’m sure.

3. I wish to wish the wish you wish to wish, but if you wish the wish the witch wishes, I won’t wish the wish you wish to wish.

4. Sounding by sound is a sound method of sounding sounds.

5. A sailor went to sea to see, what he could see. And all he could see was sea, sea, sea.

6. Purple Paper People, Purple Paper People,
