Somebody came today, who was giving company to one of my healing clients. He showed me a kind of electronic device, a little box, and asked: "Swami Ji, can you feel the cosmic energy that is in it?" Then he switched it on with a power button. I answered "No." He said "Oh, I thought maybe you will be impressed because you feel wonderful energy." But I did not.
After the man had gone my friend Thomas told that he had recently seen an advertisement: apparently someone created a pill for enlightenment. Eat it and you are enlightened. This kind of thing nearly became part of culture. We want to buy everything and think we can have everything for money. Even enlightenment.
Especially the evening was nice today. Two friends of Thomas and Iris came for dinner. After food one of them played the tanpura and sang with it. He is a great singer. Thomas also made us happy by playing the rudraveena. Music is a wonderful medium for concentration. Meditation can be more easy with it. Music can bring you in that state of consciousness in which you can focus on the inside and try to find your inner joy.
