Question

I lost my way in life. I have acces sometime to the astral, but I hardly can acces the causal and I can not make satori last. I only have glimpses each day.

I can not make contact with woman of my age, and I identifie myself with my body often.

Will I stay forever in samsara?

Answer from Master Keisen

If each day you have a new satori, you are very fortunate, that must illuminate them. Our life is the samsara, our mind is the samsara, our world as we see it through our mind is the samsara. We are the samsara, there is no samsara as such outside of ourselves. This is ok then, as we can in this condition change our samsara in nirvana, that all depends on ourselves. Nirvana is not like a lamp which shines as long as there is juice, and samsara is not the permanent hell. Everything changes, samsara becomes nirvana, nirvana becomes samsara, they depend from each other. This is our real life, there is no real life outside ours. Accept that things are changing, and moreover decide that you can change things.

On the other hand in order to make a contact with a woman of your age, you should go where you can meet them, clubs, sport, meetings for singles, dance, or also internet is a good way. If you do that and continue and if you feel available for another person, then that will happen, surely, at the right time, with the right woman. I am sure that there exist women who would like to meet a man of their age. Go where they are.

Good luck, life can be wonderful especially if you decide to see it this way.

God

Has it ever occurred to you that the idea of God was created on earth? this is a realization to me that I cannot let loose. That this whole time we are thinking of a god that only we've created. If any other planet has inhabited intelligent life, have they created the same idea? Is there a right idea?? Or is the idea we've created only for ...
