Carl: Hi, Ram. For now I remain disciple-free. I just have to spend a bit of time creating a “modern teaching” and then they can adore me and shower me with donations!!
Thanks so much for your reply. I am very grateful. You speak as the self, and I welcome and recognise that I am this self. What else could I be?
Sundari’s satsang in the newsletter flicked a switch on for me regarding the gunas. I now dispassionately watch the gunas as they play out with the awareness that I am that which knows them. This is a powerful practice, and I see that most of the time the mind is sattvic, yet rajas and tamas appear too and that is fine. Ananda, joy and lightness of being with much laughter thrown in, is the welcome experience of sattva in the appearance that is Carl.
~With much love and gratitude, Carl
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.
