Garden of Flowers
Do not go into the garden of flowers
O friend, go not there.
In your body is the garden of flowers.
Take your seat on the thousand petals of lotus
and there gaze upon the infinite beauty.
There is a strange tree,
which stands without roots,
bears fruits without blossoming.
It has no branches and no leaves.
It is Lotus all over.
Two birds sing there:
One is the Guru and the other the disciple.
The disciple chooses the manifold fruits of life
and tastes them
And the Guru beholds him in joy.

Wow! I’m….uh…..without words.
If you had a choice, right now, to choose to be with Christ Jesus in heaven would you choose to do so? Being human and having the power of choice, can we choose to ask God to grant us a wish? You see, there are three realms, earth, heaven, and hell. We live on the earth in the now, and we believe, as Christians, that at some point Christ will return to the earth and judge us in the final days. Between now and judgement day, death will end our stay on earth and God will judge our fate when that happens.
Christ said: “And all things whatever you ask for in prayer, believing, you shall receive.” What if, we asked God to stop this game that is being played out on earth, and grant us the one wish of living with him in heaven right now. What if, we choose to not allow Satan any more control over our lives and our future and made the decision to ask God to end this game. What if we, as human beings, with the power of choice, made a conscious decision to choose Christ Jesus, right now, over the day to day challenges and temptations that Satan offers.
Say, if in 2015, we were able to gather 9 billion, or 8 billion or 5 billion people, Jews, Catholics, Baptists, Protestants, Jahovah Witnessers, Lutherians, Episcapalians, Muslims, Buddists, Hindu’s, and every other worshiper, together to pray to God, asking him to bring us home. If we ask Jesus Christ to come, would he be with us??? If we asked him to bring us home to his kingdom in heaven, would we receive??? Do you want to stop playing this earthly game??? Our home is in heaven and not here on earth. Is that a challenge?? Can you see the vision???
Christ has said: “And I say to you, ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and you shall find; knock and it shall be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; and he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks it shall be opened.” We can ask billions of people to take one moment in time to act as one, crying out to God, our heavenly Father, “Take us home.” OH GOD, take us from the land of the Pharaohs!!! Take us from the hands of evil, bring us home to your kingdom!!! Can we ask strong enough?? Can we ask hard enough?? Can we ask loud enough??? Do you believe???
Christ said: “And in that day you shall ask me nothing. Amen, amen, I say to you, if you ask the Father anything in my name, he will give it to you. Hitherto you have not asked anything in my name. Ask, and you shall receive, that your joy may be full.” Do we want to be filled with eternal joy?? Why have we not asked???
Can you imagine how we can make this happen?? Can you understand the power that God has given us in order that we may choose our own destiny, right now. We don’t have to wait until tomorrow, while Satan tricks and traps millions more souls into the fires of hell!!! The decision is ours. Can we choose?? Can we make this happen?? Can we start a holy movement around the world and set the date of our going home??? Or are our hearts hardened so much by this earthly realm that we can not conceive of the idea that God will grant our request???
Christ said: ” I say to you further, that if two of you shall agree on earth about anything at all for which they ask, it shall be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together for my sake, there am I in the midst of them.” Christ come into the mist of millions, of billions and grant our wish!!!

Your desire to meet God is really coming from your heart. But you even do not imagine how close to God we all are! Or, better to say, the way to Him is so close to us and it really depends on each of us whether we decide to go along it or not.
Christ says, “God’s Heaven is within”. Start with yourself. Find Spirit inside yourself. When you find it, you will also find joy. You will be able to give people around you this joy! And you will make the world better. Can you imagine how the world could change if each of us did it!
Yes, it is easy to say: find Spirit, fins Joy! Many deep souls have been trying to do it for ages but many of them have failed.
Why not try to get Self-realization, as Shri Mataji,founder of Sahaja Yoga whose teaching are recognized by many all over the world suggests?
I would like to quote from the book I have been recently presented with:
“The ocean of joy was splashing at the infinite calm banks of my soul. I realized that the Spirit of God is inexhaustible Bliss. His body is endless layers of light. My inner radiance was still growing enveloping towns, countries, Earth, Solar and Star systems, gas nebulae and drifting universes… The center of the world was felt as a point of intuitive perception of my heart. Magnificence was radiating from my center into each corner of the universal structure… I heard the constructive voice of God sounding as AUM – the vibration of the Cosmic Engine…
I would like to know, Sir, when I will meet God?
You have found it. I am sure you are not expecting to meet some grand emperor sitting on a throne in some sterile corner of the Cosmos… God is constantly renewed joy. It is impossible to exhaust it however much you are meditating: He will make you rejoice with eternal inventiveness…”
It was a quick translation of mine of a tiny part of the book “A Yogi’s Autobiography” written by Paramahansa Yogananda. I am reading this book in Russian but it was originally written in English.
Can you tell name of flower you have used above?
The flower is called begonia (or elephant’s ear)
