2.2 How Should One Choose Practically Between the Different Systems

Most illnesses (nearly 90%) are self-healing by nature and the system of therapy used really does not matter. Still others can be corrected by lifestyle adjustments, such as diabetes. Out of the other 10%, about 8-9 out of 10 again, are largely contained rather than cured. It is only the 1% where the choice of system makes a sizeable difference.

Ambu, the Mother’s Baby (part 2)

If there is one lesson Ambu wanted me to learn, it is this: turn to the Divine and nowhere else. Do not run after money, power, sex, name and fame. Live for the Divine, live for the Mother, and all else will be given to you.

Physical Conditions and Yoga

My friends wonder why I take so little food. But why should I eat much just to satisfy the body’s appetite?

The Mothers Coming 5

Rediscovering HER Within (5/5)

SHE comes manifested in the outer fields of nature, closer to our limited external sight so that even our outer senses can behold the Glory and the Flame. What is needed now is to tend the flame, to nurture and nourish it. What is needed is to renounce our old ways of life and start living afresh as a new born child who must learn everything in a new way. What is needed is to expose all our nature to its light and heat until all is ready for Her transmuting touch.
