Spiritual Practice

The more superior the spiritual practice is,
the simpler it will be.

From News 102, Aphorisms
Spoken by Supreme Master Ching Hai
(originally in Chinese)

The master is made of simplicity, just like every of us. Just because we complicate our lives, therefore, we can not be one with the universe and God can not contact us. We build walls of prejudice, of social behavior patterns, anything to separate ourselves from the natural way of life. That is why we can not become a master; originally everyone could.

As long as we still occupy ourselves with such things as, what other people think, or what the master should be like, we can never be one. Just drop every idea, be as a child, and then you will know what’s it like.

Don’t compete with others; don’t long for profit and fame; don’t be mean and calculating, be forgiving instead. People may have treated us badly but we should treat them well and love them. Such is the heart of a child. If we can preserve this heart of a child — no matter how old we have grown we are still God’s children — we won’t go to hell or fall into undesirable situations. Our lives will be smooth; at least our hearts will always be happy. We will face any problem cheerfully. No obstacles will make us feel frustrated or worried as we can overcome them. We will easily forgive others, and we will feel very free. We may be rich or poor, our position may be high or low, and despite where we are living or whom we are staying with, we just won’t mind. Such is the heart of a child. It is not that we cannot be a child again after we have grown up.

Only enlightenment can destroy ignorance. Only God’s love can nullify hatred. Only real brotherhood can dissolve the different conflicts and opinions among our brothers and sisters. Please help me bring God’s love into this planet. You can help me by praying together in silence to know God, to bring Hiers love and Heavenly kingdom to this planet. I don’t wish for any rewards from you or from Heaven. I just wish what you wish; that is, for a peaceful planet for you and also for me. And for that, I spend my time, my money and my energy to help bring about peace instead of spending energy, time and money on weapons for killing.

To be masters of ourselves, to have victory over our own weaknesses, egos and evil tendencies is the best victory of any war. And powerful spiritual energy will change the course of history. You should do something, take action, fight with your Godly love, fight with your spiritual power, fight quietly in the corner of your home, fight with us. Yes, that is getting initiation, meditating, contacting God and changing the history of our planet.

In spiritual practice, don’t care too much about having progressed or not. Instead, we should care about our sincerity. Whether or not we are truly long for liberation.

From News 92, Aphorisms
Spoken by Supreme Master Ching Hai
(originally in Chinese)

We renounce the desire for the world,
but not the world itself.
