well, there are great saints of a huge spiritual stature and wisdom, rare men among us, their special missions are to guide us lost souls back to God.

Paramahansa Yogananda, at least for us his devout disciples is a Premavatar which means an incarnation of Divine love.

Respect!

But if no one is ready to decipher what you feel it is saying, how can they? How do you know that they are telling the truth in what they say? God bless.

I follow my heart and soul, and I follow the teaching of my dear guru, only blessings have come to my life since I found him, my relationship with God is beautiful thanks to the wise advice of my guru.

I guess if my heart burns with the divine love of God, and when i tune in with my guru I want nothing else but to love unconditionally and think good and do good I'm on the right path, for he says that God is nothing else but the truth and rightneousness

May the divine love awake and live forever in our hearts!

Thanks for sharing, Travelling fella. I think that I will just follow the teachings of Jesus and trust in God to guide me through His Holy Spirit. Take care and God bless.

May I tell u the truth in love. U do not sound like a person who knows the Jesus of the Bible or HIS teachings. We are not in agreement and therefore cannot walk together on any path. I am a Christian Believer, but I don't think u r. The Bible is the word of God and there is no compromise in that: Jesus is the WAY, the ONLY WAY. U cannot seperate Jesus from the HOLY BIBLE or take HIS teachings out of context and combine them with false doctrines to make some kind of feel good -all inclusive gospel. This is not enlightenment-it is deception...strong delusion. Christianity is simple- either u believe in Jesus the Christ and receive HIM as your LORD and personal SAVIOUR or u don't. If u receive HIM u receive life and u r a Christian believer, but anything else is not Christianity. U cannot claim Christianity yet embrace Buddha. "Jesus is the ONLY WAY, the ONLY TRUTH, and THE ONLY LIGHT: There is no room for interpretational differences on this point. Where u stand is what seperates "Believers" from "non-believers." "No man can serve two masters..." U must make a choice for Jesus. Either Jesus is Lord or HE is not your Lord. There are many paths, but only Jesus is the RIGHT ONE. God loves u too much not to allow u to hear the TRUTH. Respectfully, adamant

With all respect, I believe in Jesus and accept him as my savior, but I respect and I bow to all the other great men of God who gave mankind an example of how to get closer to him, there's nothing wrong with that imho.

if God is love, and Christ is his son and he came to give us an example of how God would act if he was a human being, I doubt that Jesus's father, our father too would be an angry despot that would condemn their children to eternal damnation in hell by the mistakes we've made by our ignorance and human condition (which he created)

It's just how you interpret things, for me the bible speaks of all these things, at least in the way I interpret it (with the help of my guru and paramgurus) but after having a very enlightening dialogue of all this a couple of hours ago I'm too tired right now to have another one

you can review it here though.

Peace, Love, Light and Harmomy

Can you tell me where in the Bible it condones bowing to any man other than Jesus (who was God and man)?

Dear Dojilynn I promise to you that I'm gonna study it thoroughly these days and come up with a reply

If I can't find any I'll accept my mistake and accept you are right.

God Bless
