A Swami was having a conversation with Lord Shiva one day and said:

'Lord, I would like to know what Heaven and Hell are like.

Lord Shiva led the Swami to two doors.

He opened one of the doors and the Swami looked in.
In the middle of the room was a large round table. In the middle of the table was a large pot of stew, which smelled delicious and made the Swami's mouth water.
The people sitting around the table were thin and sickly.
They appeared to be famished. They were holding spoons with very long handles that were strapped to their arms and each found it possible to reach into the pot of stew and take a spoonful.

But because the handle was longer than their arms, they could not get the spoons back into their mouths.

The Swami shuddered at the sight of their misery and suffering.

Lord Shiva said, 'You have seen Hell.

They went to the next room and opened the door. It was exactly the same as the first one. There was the large round table with the large pot of stew which made the holy man's mouth water. The people were equipped with the same long-handled spoons, but here the people were well nourished and plump, laughing and talking. The Swami said, 'I don't understand.'

'It is simple,' said Lord Shiva.

'It requires but one skill. You see they have learned to feed each other, while the greedy think only of themselves.'

When Lord Shiva created the world, He was thinking of you. It's estimated 93% won't forward this. If you are one of the 7% who will, forward this with the title '7%'.

I'm in the 7%

Remember that I will always share my spoon with you.

Thought this was a fun story and this my way t forward the message.
I love you.

Let not my mind deny the thought of God.

I was sitting this morning in my room reading today’s Lesson: Let not my mind deny the thought of God.

And I was praying to have a different day.

A day, that will open a new door for me.

I asked for a change---and: it did (it still surprises me when it happens).

This is also the reason I am writing this post. Well there isn’t really a reason I could define, I only know: I should. For my self. All my judgments aside. Like I really believe I am a bad and not very interesting writer. But I figure: just follow the instruction. Judgment is not my department.

It’s also when Dear One appeared, how he does EVERY time I need him. And THIS is that wants to be shared.

When I got the call at 11pm on Tuesday, May 20th about the transition of The Old Man, I have to admit that I wasn’t surprised. I actually gave him complete permission to leave for a while. The thing is though: he did not leave.-Or better: I am gone with him. He feels so much closer to me. He never was the identity I gave to him, when he was sitting in front of me every day --my way of separating my self from him. He came back as my self.

So, this morning I prayed for a change.

I had the most amazing day. Most of all I am grateful to todays lesson.

Let not my mind deny the thought of God.

Today I actually remembered the lesson a lot. Each time I would catch my self going into a judgment about someone, I applied it. Looking beyond. Having my gaze fixed on God. Not making up stories, but staying with the lesson. Staying present.


There is a God.- and He is there for me. He does not judge me. He looks right at me disregarding my insanity completely. And so does Dear One and Jesus and my brother.
I was only mistaken about my self. And that is the lesson to "for-give".
