May Not Know

Meditation In Thailand

should always remember we have heaven inside and that never goes away, never
ever. Whenever we forget, try to remember again; pull yourself inward again;
and then you feel such a peace, tranquility and comfort.
That, no one can ever take
away from you. That is the real heaven, not to run away above the stars the
way I sang to you last night. That is only for the non-initiates, or the not-very-high-level
In the beginning we have to
tempt them with some kind of cakes or something so they'll say "Wow, I have
heaven. Ya, sure, there are heavens, but like every other place. Nirvana heaven
is not for you to reside in permanently. It's not a private property. Nothing
in the universe should be a private property or permanent residence, thing like
that; because that is no good. Then you get stuck there. Even if you have a
beautiful nirvana, you'll get stuck there all the time. What a boring Buddha!
