    Jesus instilled great faith in people who lived during his lifetime. One of those fishermen was named by Jesus as Peter. He developed intense love and faith towards Jesus. From then on, all the fishermen regularly used to take Jesus out on their fishing expeditions and after their return in the evening, Jesus used to expound spiritual matters to them. When Peter’s father passed away, his mother was filled with sorrow, but Jesus consoled her by telling, “Death is but a dress of life. Wherefore do you shed tears? Death is like changing one’s dress. Therefore stop grieving. These physical bodies come and go, so do not waste your thought on these ephemeral things. The indweller (dehi) who lives inside this body is the true Divinity! Anyone with a physical body cannot escape vicissitudes of life. Without hardships no one can exist. Death follows birth and with the same certainty misery follows happiness!” BABA

    Dear little-self

    What is the source of this saying by Jesus to Peter's mother? I am not familiar with it.

    Best regards

    Dear little-self

    You were kind enough to let me know that these sayings / stories come from Sri Sathya Sai Baba, whose cult was a branch of Hinduism. I understand that his teachings revolved around helping his fellow man realise the innate divinity within them, and that motivated by a philosophy of " love all and serve all," that he practiced what he preached in establishing throughout India a network of free hospitals, clinics & schools.

    However by quoting directly on the purported words of Jesus previously I have issue with the validity of this knowledge. Or is it, ( as I suspect) an interpretation on his part?

    Best wishes
    M.

    "Jesus underwent several trials and tribulations during His time. He became the Saviour and Messiah of the poor and forlorn, helping them in many ways. Once while crossing the desert, a poor woman approached Him begging for food. He gave her bread saying, “Take this". When someone enquired where bread came from, Jesus replied that it was Divine will. There is nothing greater than Divine Will. Everything is God’s will. The foremost duty of a human being is to realise the will of God and submit oneself to that Divine will. People today are blind, having lost both their eyes of faith. Faith is the basis for all creation. Hence first and foremost, develop faith. Where there is faith and love, everything else will be added unto such a person. Many people have faith, but lack love. Faith devoid of love has no use. Love and faith must be together like mutually attractive magnetic poles."BABA

    Religion is outward journey

    Religion is the path
    Spirit the destination.
    The former is the seeker
    Later the seekth!
    Religion’s reach is God
    Spirituality seeks merger with God!
    Both have their existence
    Religion in creation
    Spirit in void!
    Both radiate
    Religion’s waves pulls inward
    And ego grows!
    Spirit spreads love rays
    And merge all in the expanse!
    Both sustain—
    Each exists in the other!
    Both have separate identities---
    One in the container
    Other the contained!
    Religious dogmas are mental games
    Spiritual sports are Godly acts!
    Religion functions in mind
    Spirituality starts beyond!

    God Love
    Oh, Lord! Alas! I could
    Live in the moments I lost
    Click the scenes I lived by!
    A lively moment tinkles dead emotions
    Sufferings gone by- exchanged by Master-vibes!
    Revive my diffused cells
    Kindle my dusty pores.
    Rejuvenated depression crucify sad vibes
    Out-flows suppressed lovelies,
    Layered sensitivities expand,
    Contagious cells remedied.
    Purity enthuse them
    Love emotions engulf
    Godly love reigns.

    If I be so bold as to venture into this most profound topic my dear brother little self, may I then say that we each have a mighty if not Almighty master residing within
    each one of us, and that master is the SELF, we have no need to search for a guru or a master because we all have vouchsafed within us the Greatest master of them
    all, the Absolute.

    warmest regards Michael.

    "because we all have vouchsafed within us the Greatest master of them"
    As long as we see Self in us, we need to seek knowledge from whatever quarter possible, but the moment we realize that WE ARE IN THE Self then our quest is over! All are not Self-Taught like you, they need the necessity of teachers, guides, coaches to cross the vast ocean of Sansara (Nature). Master like Christ, Buddha, Muhammad command respect& ls has no hesitation in prostrating before them!.lov&regards,ls

    Thanks brother for you wise words and humility, I was dead for the first thirty years of my life, then realisation dawned within and I was reborn.
    warmest regards Michael.

    Cosmic Mother
    Cosmic Father
    Supreme-Self
    Thou bless all
    Thou grace all.
    What may I offer
    Who giveth all!
    Worldly tinsels ye spurn
    Enslaving mind ye abhor.
    What may I offer
    Who created all!
    My mind is my world
    Uncoiling, I offer it free!
    The gift I received, I offer it back
    Smiling, Master, accept it back!

    Bhagavan SRI Ramana is in my view a Genuine Master whose simplicity and humility shone out like a solar sun, his whole life was his message, at the moment of his death
    in much pain, his final words were if the animals had been fed, no thought for himself existed within that exulted being, he would never eat until everyone present had food,
    and his simple yet profound message, was to ask yourself the question, WHO AM I? And to keep on asking that question until you find the SELF within you.
    Warmest regards Michael.
