Here is a health tip for you. Did you know sweet potatoes are not only tasty, but also nutritious? They are packed with beta-carotene, which is converted into vitamin A in the liver, and this helps get rid of infections in the body. Sweet potatoes not only assist in preventing vitamin A deficiency but also in managing diabetes. They slowly release sugar into the bloodstream, and this helps control blood sugar levels. Therefore, they are considered low glycemic foods. Furthermore, sweet potatoes come with large amounts of magnesium, which aids in decreasing stress and anxiety. They are prepared by baking them whole, but you can also steam, boil, or microwave them. You can add various toppings to this superfood that is full of vitamin C and fiber!
Now it’s time to find out if the following joke has what it takes to make you laugh. This one’s called, “Not So Different.”
Leo had just graduated from college with a large debt. He lamented to his father:
“Dad, if you would have worked just a little harder when you were younger, we would be rich by now, and I wouldn't have any debt.”
Leo's father calmly replied:
“So now, you must try to work hard. Then you'll be rich and your son won’t have to take on debt.”
“Oh my. But why should I work hard for him?”
“Well, I thought the same way back in the day!”
And now we have a heartline from Bo-Xiang in China:
Hallo, Dear Supreme Master Ching Hai! Thank You for launching the heartlines on Supreme Master TV. It gives me a chance to express my infinite appreciation and best wishes. Through this wonderful program, I can talk to Master about my innermost thoughts and feelings of my spiritual practice over the years.
Initiated in 1998, I’ve been diligently trying to meditate and practice spiritually. Both in inner elevation and in daily life, I have enjoyed Master’s Blessings and protection.
Many years ago, because my right leg was injured in a car accident, I could only lie down and recite the Five Holy Names. Then, a dream emerged somehow. I heard Master say, “You’re stubborn! Why don’t you pray to Master? When do you expect your leg to recover if you don’t call for Master’s help?”
Master’s voice startled me out of my dream. I opened my eyes and found that my house was full of white Light, covering every corner. I was basking in the Light and filled with supreme bliss within.
Master said that the spiritual practice of one initiated person could elevate the souls of his five generations. This is absolutely true. Once in an inner vision of meditation, I saw my deceased father, wearing very dirty cotton clothes, tied up in a prison van and surrounded by four policemen. My father said, “I’m a sinful person. I had hurt a lot of animal-people.” This reminded me that my father had been a hunter and had killed many animal-people throughout his life. That’s why he ended up with that kind of retribution.
I said to my father, “I’ll come to see you again in a while.” Having turned and walked away for only a few steps, I felt uneasy and turned around to have a look. At that time, the police around my father, the prison van, and the ropes had all disappeared. His dirty clothes turned into new ones. My father looked at me smilingly and walked away. It’s Master’s Power that liberated my father.
During meditation, I also saw my daughter who had passed away unfortunately at a young age. Before initiation, due to recklessness, I beat my daughter and she drank a drug to commit suicide. This is the pain and regret of my life. I expressed my repentance to her and asked for her forgiveness, but in my vision she was still angry at me and seemed like a stranger. Master, please convey my deep repentance to her. I wish she can be as beautiful and happy as an angel.
Thank You, Master, for taking care of my deceased family members with Your immense Grace. My gratitude to You is beyond words. All I can do is to practice diligently to elevate myself and develop my love. I hope one day I could do something for Master. This is my best wish.
Master, You’re the Savior of the world. You guide sentient beings to walk on the bright path to Heaven! The Light of Master’s Ocean of Love shines upon my heart as well as every corner of the world! Respectfully, disciple Bo-Xiang from China
Focused Bo-Xiang, Thank you for your heartline and sharing your illuminating inner experiences.
Master has a loving message for you: “Devoted Bo-Xiang, your sincere longing and appreciation for the Master Power is what allows it to work in your life. Whatever you want, you get. Most people want worldly things and so they get only that and God seems distant or nonexistent to them. I am so glad you value enlightenment above all things and this is why I can help you and your family members. When people receive initiation, many generations of their family members are also uplifted. This you experienced directly, so you know it is true. If only people truly understood that the greatest need everyone has is to be liberated from this illusionary world, then I could help them, and the world would become like Heaven. May all beings be freed from suffering. That is all I want. May you and the diligent Chinese people forever live in the Benevolent Light of the Buddhas.”
