We practice, we see the (inner Heavenly) Light, we hear the (inner Heavenly) Sound, only for that purpose – that we’re free. Free from all attachment, free from all anxiety and hatred and anger while still living. Liberated while yet here. If you are not liberated while here, how can you be liberated in Heaven? You will bring your anxiety with you. You’ll bring your hatred with you wherever you go.

You see, the improvement of our spiritual practice comes daily as well, comes into our daily activities, in our growth – more love and understanding, more tolerance and more detachment from this world. It doesn’t come only in visions or in the (inner Heavenly) Sound. The (inner Heavenly) Sound and the vision are only there to help you to improve your daily understanding, so that you have more wisdom, more love. So don’t worry.

You see why when we do the (inner Heavenly) Sound, we will see more (inner Heavenly) Light? It is because we’re more concentrated. The (inner Heavenly) Sound is more powerful than the (inner Heavenly) Light. The (inner Heavenly) Sound attracts the whole body, mind and soul. But when we sit there, we try to concentrate on the wisdom eye and try to see something, but still, our mind can wander around. But when we hear the (inner Heavenly) Music from inside, oh, the mind cannot resist, can just quickly concentrate. Even in worldly music, people like it so much that sometimes they’re so absorbed in the music that they forget everything outside. Like children, when they watch TV, oh, they don’t hear you. You see, even children. Because there is sound and even visions there also. So when you hear the (inner Heavenly) Sound, it is more easy for you to concentrate. And that’s why you often see the (inner Heavenly) Light at the same time. So don’t worry. Just enjoy. OK?

You’ve become more loving, I can see, and more bright in the face. And that is the proof. That is the success. (I can feel it in my heart.) You can feel it in your heart? Oh, that’s better even; you know better than me. Your heart, you know better. So when we improve, we know. You see? We are less agitated than before. Right? We are more loving, easy-forget – easy-forgive people and forget the event that was unpleasant to us. Easy to forgive people who did wrong to us. And not only forgive them but even want to make them feel good or pray for them. Mostly, we didn’t have this kind of mental attitude before, and now we do. And we have more and more every day. And we know the world is ephemeral; we don’t cling to the world like we used to do before. And nothing hurts us so much. That is the best improvement and progress.

We practice, we see the (inner Heavenly) Light, we hear the (inner Heavenly) Sound, only for that purpose – that we’re free. Free from all attachment, free from all anxiety and hatred and anger while still living. Liberated while yet here. If you are not liberated while here, how can you be liberated in Heaven? You will bring your anxiety with you. You’ll bring your hatred with you wherever you go. Is that not so? (Yes.)

For example, sometimes during work – before, not after, before “cosmetic surgery” – you sit there, and you argue with some colleagues, and they make trouble for you. And then, even when you go home, the heated argument is still there in your mind. Is that not so? You can’t forget it; you can’t forget it. And sometimes you bring it into your bed. And then even you infect your partner or children with it, whoever’s next to you. Where can we run to? See what I mean? So, if we have this kind of attachment and problem while we are still living here, it is unlikely that we can go to Heaven and feel free because we’ll bring it with us. See? Thought is very powerful. It goes beyond time, space, and circumstances. Therefore, it’s better to be free here now. That’s why the more we meditate, the freer we feel. That is the liberation in this lifetime. You understand, huh? OK. Any more questions? No, huh?

A long time now – how many years [have] we known each other? (Five years?) Five years, only? Really? (Since ’89?) ’89, huh? ’89. Really, five years? May ’89. Oh, then five years. So fast. And you’re still working in the bank? (Yes.) Counting people’s money? Alright. If you have no more questions, then you may return to your places and sit there and look again. You want some more? Don’t be shy; we have plenty. I’ll bring more for other people. Only for foreigners because the Taiwanese (Formosans) have eaten all my storeroom and my stocks for many years already. (Thank You. May I also take some?) Please, why [did] you wait so long?

(Master?) Huh? Come on. (Can I speak German also?) Sure you can, if I understand you. (I live in a farmhouse, and every day they eat animal-people meat…) Why do you live in a farmhouse? (…I have to work there…) Ah, you work there? (Yes.) And then? (Well, there is no other possibility than to live in that house.) OK. You can… (…and there is a very uncomfortable atmosphere. I always get very tired, and I always feel so bad there. And I don’t know… Do You think it is best… I mean… I… am always so tired.) Can’t you find another room? (I don’t think there are others.) None. Huh? It’s no problem. It doesn’t matter. There are so many initiates who also live with family, and the family people also eat a lot of animal-people meat. So, that is nothing special. OK? It is not… not a special case.

No problem. You do your thing; they eat theirs. No problem. You always have to concentrate here and always recite the Five (Holy) Names to protect yourself from this unpleasant atmosphere. No problem. We are in this world. We cannot always avoid these unpleasant things – (animal-people) meat eating, wine drinking, etc. Where can we run to, go? No possibility. Same goes for me. When I get on an airplane, people always have to… they eat right under my nose, in front of my nose. What should I say, huh? Throw them out or what? Understand? You don’t need to think about it. We are strong here; we are positive. The negative, unpleasant atmosphere can’t do anything to us. No problem.

OK. Is there anything else? You are a farmer, or what? (I have a profession a little in that direction, yes.) It’s interesting. (A bit of nature conservation.) Yes, you must be very happy because you live in the… how do you say… “countryside?” (In nature?) In nature, yes – fresh air, and there aren’t so many cars and not so many people, not so much television, no radio, and not so… (No nuclear power.) It is very nice. Ah! There are initiates who live in the city, and people move in together to live, like the Japanese. Oh, they are not having fun – no space, apartment (is) very small. It could be worse, a worse situation than yours. You are very, very lucky. So, be happy.

OK. Anything else? (How is it when I work with such… So, I practically help them with my office from where I… ah, how should I explain this… I just wanted to know whether it’s OK with my work, because sometimes I think that… well, farmers live from the fact that they have animal-people…) … that they have to do with animal-people? (Yes. And I was…) Actually better than having to deal with people, right? (I don’t have direct…) The animal-people are uncomplicated… (Yes, that’s right.) …really. They don’t complain about anything. (I just wanted to say, if it supports the farmers, is it… because they live from slaughtering animal-people and so on. If I then support the farmers through my work, that is somehow not so good, right? I don’t know.)

Do you understand what she’s saying? (She’s worrying because people in the countryside, they’re killing animal[-people].) Oh. (...maybe it’s not good for her because she’s helping out a lot.) (Not directly, but…) Why does she say that she supports the farmers? (By her work, that’s what she means.) (Yes, by my work.) What do you do with the farmers? (I’m… they have fields and other things.) It doesn’t matter. You work at your profession. OK? (OK.) It is your duty. You must do your duty completely. (Fulfill?) Fulfill it, and the other thing is not your concern. Otherwise, what can you do? Have no profession? Go to sleep on the street? And what the people do is their business. None of your concern. Otherwise, one can’t always find a profession. It is everywhere … this with these people killing animal-people or doing something like that. (OK.) Also, not to be extreme. (Ah, yes.) But fine, that is good. You are protected by the purity of your heart. You are pure in heart; that is enough. OK? Otherwise, it is too complicated in this world. Not always avoid everything. OK?

I’m sorry – my German, it goes over the… doesn’t go so much at all. But you understood? (Mhm.) Good. Good. OK. Alright. But the Germans can all speak English, no? They do, huh? (Yes.) Yeah – very intelligent people. When I was in Germany, for the first few years, I could not speak any German. They all could talk with me in English. Very nice. In France, it doesn’t work. OK. All clear? (Yes.) OK. Good.

Are there still…? There are some more questions? No? (Yes.) Yeah? If there are more questions, then you must ask. [You] don’t need me [to] ask you all the time. (No, not a question, but the other disciples in Munich asked me to send their warm regards.) Sure. Sure. (And I just want to thank You for everything You did. Really, thank You so much – my family, everything is better in my life. Everything is better, and I’m so much happier.) Good. Thanks God for you. God has loved you so much.

And you, what do you want? Give him. (When one has a vision, how much can life change according to this vision? How far can one go? How much is one permitted to adjust life according to a vision?) Who after what? (If one has a…) Religion, or what… (Vision…) Ah, you had a vision… (Yes.) …during meditation. (Yes.) Yes, and then? (How much may I change my life according to this vision?) Change? Ah! Did you perhaps foresee something or what? (Yes, yes.) For example, what? What did you foresee? (Oh…) What kind of vision did you have? Huh? Was it a true vision? (Yes. But how far…) Why do you change your life? (I must change my life if… This vision does not seem to be possible. But if it becomes possible, then everything has to change. But that is the question: How much can I change everything?)

But what kind of vision did you seek? Can you explain to me what kind of vision? How do you want to change your life? In what connection? (In connection with a country, with You and with me.) Can you explain the vision to me? Quickly. No? (Not here.) Not here? Yes! You can! (No.) No? No, then I also cannot say anything here, if it is such a secret. Secrets I also cannot tell here. But to whom do you want to tell it then? OK. Then you write. And then... I will answer you in private. Alright? He had a great vision. A secret. Can’t tell (it) here.
