[Question] We have many opportunities to act, to give, to work. What guidance do you have to determine how you choose between a global effort or a local effort. How does one find good works?
[Gurunath''''s Answer] Our first choice before anything else to avoid all
confusion is God. We choose God first and then other things of relativity. The only purpose of Man''''s journey on this Earth is to seek God. So that''''s our first choice. And to seek God and to get to him the fastest way is to practice Kriya Yoga. Now there are other things which are irrelevant compared to God that choice you can make on your own. How do you like that? Have I knocked off the confusion in your mind? The only purpose of Man''''s sojourn on this Earth is to seek God. People doing anything else are wasting their time. Does this ring harsh in your ears? The second thing you can do is your bread earning stuff. First seek God by your practice of Kriya Yoga, first choice. Second choice, put food on the table. And third Choice. that''''s your... whatever you
want to do. You want to be working SeaWorld or Disneyland or working as Christiane Amanpour going as a press reporter in the battle areas or you want to work as a soldier in the United States Army, or you want to... that''''s your third choice, and it doesn''''t really matter. If there''''s confusion in your mind, thank God, don''''t do it, practice Kriya yoga. This is my simple way of thinking. Create God within your being. He shall be your guiding light. He shall be your beacon. A beacon of light that shall guide you. Surrender to God first. Seek ye first the kingdom of God, then all the other problems shall be solved and if they aren''''t who cares? Who cares oh Lord, as long as I have your light to guide me. Once I have thee, I shall want no more. Next question. That''''s the sort of answer you''''ll expect from a Yogi, any Yogi, what else do you expect? Be here for God, live God, drink God, be God, love God, be saturated with him so much that when you explode with him, you can explode with love. It appears so the good side is losing with all these guys aggressing and terrorizing the Earth, but if it is his wish and will it will happen for a certain time, the cloud will pass, then there will be peace and good will on Earth. Let us see what happens starting from 2008 to 2012. Let us see how things go. If you practice Kriya Yoga with patience, I promise
you, starting with you yourself then a lot of things will progress for you. You will not get what you want if your practice Kriya Yoga, you will get only what you need. So no ego balm, no pampering, no gizmos. And America is the land of entertainment so you''''ll have to make a bit of sacrifice and lead the simple life. Next question.
