Beloved Dhyana Siddhi,

Love. We kneel down to ourselves.

Because, we kneel down to the gods we make out of our experience or out of our desires and dreams, or out of our so called logic and foolish arguments.

This is neither humility, nor prayer.

Rather, on the contrary this is the most egoistic attitude possible.

The true religious mind is one which just kneels down, not to anyone, not to any IMAGE in particular.

This kneeling down is nothing but a flowering of one's own total nothingness.

Then this kneeling down becomes an inner way of life.

And, unless prayer is such, prayer is not.

One cannot pray, one can only be prayerful.


(To: Ma Dhyana Siddhi, New York, U.S.A.)

"I am most unhappy man.
I have unwittingly ruined my country.
A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit.
Our system of credit is concentrated.
The growth of the nation, therefore, and all out activities
are in the hands of a few men.

We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most
completely controlled amd dominated governments by free opinion,
no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority,
but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of
dominant men."

-- President Woodrow Wilson
