My guru says, “I don’t mind what happens…”.

Well, a lot of people will mind this week. They will mind because it is election time. They will elect a party of their choice. And they will hope they will win.

Which is nice, if they do. But human beings are human beings. They will help those that they know. Only those that they know will benefit. They will experience tangible results.

For the rest it will be back to square one. They will look to the next elections for better results. It is like eating from hand to mouth.

You are looking forward to your next pay. So that you can buy what you want. In the meantime you are struggle to make ends meet. You can’t satisfy your needs. You have to pinch here, and pinch there. Until when? Until you die? Do we live to die?

I thought I had seen it all. I thought I knew everything that was to be known. But I did not know that some people live to die. What are we here for? What do you think? What are we here for?

Are we here to die? Or, are we here to live your purpose? I will be disappointed if we are here to die. I believe we are spiritual beings.

As such we live forever. Spirit lives forever.

We are from God. Our Father is God. Therefore we don’t die. We just go back to where we come from. Meanwhile while we are here, we got to do what we go to do. We got to fulfill our mission.

Yes, spiritual beings have a mission. They have a mission to fulfill.

And that mission is up to you. It is what you love. It is what you are good at. It is not to wait on someone to do things for you.

It is on doing things for yourself. If you know that, you won’t mind what is happening. What is happening will be noise. It will be what will pass. It will never stay they same.

For what is human never stays the same. It doesn’t last. What lasts is spirit! That is why it is important to be yourself. Be yourself!

That’s the message you have to take with you today.

Be what you were meant to be. Don’t stress yourself. Don’t be what others are. For you never know what they are. They may be unhappy. And pretend they are happy. Many want to be fake, and think they aren’t.

They want to be what they are not. And think they are, while they are not. Be yourself. That’s all. Live your life. And be like my guru: “I don’t mind what happens.” What happens is fleeting. Stay positive.
