Material life is all about “hope” .. I hope she likes me .. hope I get hired .. hope I win the lottery … so on, so on, and so, dreams sometimes gives us a little bit of that cherished hope, then it’s taken away in a flash! That’s the material world for you! Best to replace flickering hopes with everlasting dreams of eternal loving service to the One who dreams this whole material world on one exhalation, and then breathes it back in, Jai Sri Krishna!
“I will be the first to touch Krishna!” “No, I will touch Him first!”
These crazy bald-headed humans! Their bus breaks down in the middle of the desert, and they’re dancing and laughing, singing at the top of their lungs, like they’re all happy about it!!
Last night I dreamed I was a Timagila fish!
A little to the left! Up a bit, scratch there! That’s the spot! Ahhhh! Material pleasures, you can’t beat them!
Cook 3 meals, chant 16, change diapers, attend Bhagavatam class, [Hush baby!], clean mess, what more do you want?
“What you looking at? We’re walking here! You talking to me?
“Last life I was a famous Rock Star … now look at me! ” … “I think you’re kind of cute!”
Don’t give me that “I got your back” baloney! You’re just here for the free ride! [Wait a minute … is this what I think it is? Ewww!]
Enough with the scary movies! Can’t take these nightmares!
Ah! The wages of fame! Dratted Paparazzi’s won’t give me a moment’s peace!!
Come on people! Even with my small brain, I can see an obvious design in all, from DNA on up to galaxies, the Golden Ratio!!
Yamuna said: Swamiji, Janaki-devi wrote me this very nice letter where she had a dream that there was a gigantic platform above the surface of the earth, and all of our devotees, our Godbrothers and sisters and you, were assembled on this gigantic platform for sankirtana. And we had such a thunderous joy, magnificent kirtana, that the whole earth… When you said, “Jaya om param paramahamsa,” the whole earth bowed down to you like this. And we were all crying, so happy. And you said, “Now my Guru Maharaja is satisfied.” That was her dream.
Here’s another jnani yogi falling from the sky, straight from the Brahmajyoti! [“Thus after some time they fall again to this material world”]
