Spoken by Supreme Master Ching Hai Hawaii, U.S.A., September 4, 1994 (Originally in English)
Q: Dear Master, do You think that there will ever be a day when we can all just go back Home and not have to deal with these earthly issues and matters anymore?
M: Definitely, we'll go Home.
Q: I mean all of us!
M: All of us! No one will be left behind. There's no second coming for you, [Laughter] unless you want it so badly because a beautiful woman is left behind or something like that. Because this time is a very bad period for our world, the Master Power decided that we have suffered enough. So, if we just make a little effort and have just a little sincerity, the Master will embrace us and disregard everything. [Master sighs] To be honest, you can't meditate in this world. You really can't. So, whatever time we can meditate or whatever the outcome, truly comes from the grace of the Master. I mean the Master Power; I don't mean this person.During the night, the Master will take us to different levels where it's safer and better. In the day, we are too busy. Our mind is running against the spiritual Power, so we have to do it quickly this time. If you keep the Precepts, meditate, and go to group meditation, you'll see yourself improve so fast that you cannot imagine. When you look back at yourself, it's like someone else behind there, really! And they'll tell you that - the people who have experienced it. I don't say this because I know it from books, but it's from my own experience and the living examples of your brothers and sisters. It's nice to see your family members (fellow initiates) once a week, no? It's good, but not many people can keep up although it is very beneficial for them. And if you cannot go to group meditation, if you don't want to, or for any reason, please meditate at home. There's no "must" for anything; it's just that it's beneficial for you. Whatever I tell you is only what is good for you. There are no forbidden items! If you keep it, it's good for you; and if you don't keep it, well, you'll experience some setbacks or some obstructions and then you'll know why.
