Karl: Dear James, thank you for your enlightenment.
Things are clearing up now. For one, I know now that what I have been doing for the past years has not been for the good of the world but for my own understanding and freedom from the world. Also, you have made me realize that Maharishi did not leave me in the dark. How could he? Where is the darkness?
I am not enlightened yet, but for once in many, many years I sense that I am moving ahead towards the goal of my youth.
~ Namh, Karl
PS: One limitation of emails is that you cannot see the tears running from my eyes as I write this.
James: Dear Karl, it was very nice to meet you. I am so happy that the Vedanta made things clear for you and that you are moving forward on your path. You are not enlightened nor am I nor is anyone. You/I/we/me are the light. Take care of yourself until we meet again.
~ Love, James
For years I have happily and diligently responded to communications on the topic of Self realization. Since the publication of my book, “How to Attain Enlightenment”— currently in its third printing —and the success of this website, the volume of emails has increased considerably. Unfortunately, owing to a busy schedule of teaching and writing, I am no longer able to answer all the emails I receive in a timely fashion. However, my wife, who is also a teacher, and several well-qualified teachers we have endorsed are available to answer emails on my behalf. I encourage you to send them your questions.
