You have to rely on yourself anyhow. But look at me, you still like it. Doesn’t matter what I say, you still like to look at me. It’s not my problem. And it’s also not your problem. It’s your soul’s problem. You like to look at the things that are similar to you. Because we love ourselves. You see the dog(-person) and their owner (caretaker), they both look alike. […] Or husband and wife even. (That’s true.) Yeah, they look alike. That’s why they love each other. Your soul is like my soul. It’s very noble, very nice, very wise, very loving. That’s why you like to look at me. […]

I hear you already. Wow. They’re so far. It’s too far? Never mind. You’re alright? (Yes.) Happy? (Yes.) Me, too. I can speak English. How are you? (Fine.) And you are happy? You’re OK, you kids? (Yes.) Did you eat? (Yes.) Hallelujah! You looked forward just to come here? Why is that? Closer? (Because of You.) Thanks. I know that. I don’t suppose you come here to see the chair. You come to see me – that I know. Hey, how about you come closer, if you want. But don’t touch the electric wires and all that. Watch where you’re going. You can circle around slowly, so… Here, come up a little further. It’s OK. Sit around here, around there, anywhere you want. And don’t worry about man/woman; we don’t come here for that stuff. Oh, yes! That feels better. Closer, fine. It’s even better. Yeah, more shadow. The back can go to the front here, if you want. Come here, come over. If you want.

All the back people, the people from the back. Yeah, it’s OK! Camera! (Camera.) Oh, the camera cannot. You don’t do that. This is a “sin.” You don’t cover the camera. You stop the whole world. Oh, here? Yeah, yeah. Come sit here, honey. Here. You can see my left side. You alright? You alright? You can sit anywhere you want. It just... You can go near, and go far. Go back, go forward. You know, sit mixed together. Don’t worry about women and men. We don’t come here for that. Do we? Do we? (No.) If we do, we don’t say it.

How is the food? Did you eat? (Yes.) I don’t have a straw. Am I supposed to spoil my lipstick? Like that, then I’d be less pretty, so what to do? Cheers. (Cheers.) When you settle down, we’ll begin. What is this? Must be very nutritious because it smells terrible. Trust me, it’s not doing any good. Hey, there’s a pin over there, you pick it up, in case somebody sticks it in their hand [or] feet. I’m sorry that I’m the only one who sits on the clean stage… to do a “dirty” job. Not a dirty job but cleaning the dirty stuff. Well, it’s not bad, whatever it is. It tastes like grass. Boiled in chlorine water. Chlorine water? (Yes.) Exactly like that. I only tell you because you’re always curious to know what I’m doing, what I’m drinking, what I’m thinking.

I like your hairstyle. It’s cool. It’s very African. (Thank You.) Yes. I like mine better. It’s cooler. Yours is longer and more complicated to keep and to do it. (Yes, yes.) You never take them out again. Right? (Pardon me?) You have to undo them again, and do them back again or never? (No, I have to take them...) Don’t bother. Yeah, I would think so. Just shampoo them and leave them. (Keep them.) Keep them. Keep going. Wow! My God! That’s really amazing how patient you are. (Yes. A lot of patience.) A lot, huh? I don’t think I can bear that. It’d be too hard for me. But you get used to things.

I tell you, some people… I saw a woman in Bangkok. She came from Houston. She’s a singer. I forgot her name. Even if I remember, I don’t want to say it. She grows her nails long like that. Can you imagine? My finger like that? And some more nail grows out of this, about that big. Or maybe about that long. Yeah. And on the two sides. One here, one there. One there, one there. And grows that long. They get used to it. How do you sleep that way? And when you plug your ears? (Convenient.) Convenient, huh? That’s supposed to tell you that distance makes no problem.

I guess you don’t have too many questions. Did you write it down, no, you don’t have to. I said you don’t have to. (Got one.) One? (One.) One or two questions? OK. Give him the microphone or you read it. (Microphone.) Microphone for other people (to hear). Oh. They’re still panicking. Is it done? (Done.) Yeah. (How do we recharge ourselves with Master’s Love and Wisdom instead of relying on and looking at Her? Thank You for Your Love and time, Master.) Then don’t look. Don’t look. Don’t look, if you don’t...

(Is it better to locate a Center for group meditation near a city, so other people can benefit from our meditation, or in the countryside, where the atmosphere is calmer? After being initiated, I had wonderful experiences about two years ago. However, now I only hear a very strong [inner Heavenly] Sound like the electrical tower, like the ones on the roads. Is this OK?) Yeah, I guess so. No choice. I mean, after all, what else do you get? That’s all he got. It must be OK. The first one, what did he say? Go to meditation in the city, or in the countryside? Which is better, right? Well, both. One for the city people, one for the countryside people.

The city is OK. Convenient. Because let’s face it, you all have to work in the city. Most of us do, except some lucky ones, or some [who are] more independent, they work for themselves, then they can afford to be in the rural area, or, I mean, countryside. But most people have to find work in the city. So it’s alright to meditate anywhere you want. If you can even benefit yourself, that’s already something. Don’t talk about benefiting other people. Talk so big! Hears just a “Zzzt” sound like that. And wants to benefit the whole city. It’s kind of embarrassing. And just now and again, sees a little “boop,” a little (inner Heavenly) Light like that. And wants to benefit the city. Wherever you are, just try to benefit yourself. I’ll be grateful already.

And that guy who doesn’t want to rely on looking at the Master, who is it? Let’s have a look at you. Let’s have a look at you, then I will tell you my feeling. No? Just write, hit and run? It’s you. (It’s a lady.) A lady! What are you? I’m so pretty, and you don’t want to look at me. You have some problem. It doesn’t matter. You have to rely on yourself anyhow. But look at me, you still like it. Doesn’t matter what I say, you still like to look at me. It’s not my problem. And it’s also not your problem. It’s your soul’s problem. You like to look at the things that are similar to you. Because we love ourselves. You see the dog(-person) and their owner (caretaker), they both look alike. Yeah! Or the pet(-people) – any pet(-person)! After a while, they look alike. Or husband and wife even. (That’s true.) Yeah, they look alike. That’s why they love each other. Your soul is like my soul. It’s very noble, very nice, very wise, very loving. That’s why you like to look at me. There’s nothing to do with relying on yourself or your wisdom, or not relying on yourself and your wisdom. You have to do it. But looking at me, you still like it. I don’t know why either.

I never asked you to come here to look at me. It’s you who asked me to come here, so that you can look at me. It causes me a lot of trouble. So might as well just look at me while you can, while it lasts. I also don’t know why you have to look at me. I told you many times: rely on your wisdom, rely on yourself. Don’t look at me. Did I tell you many times? (Yes.) You witnessed it. But you still come here and look at me, and then ask the same question, “Why do I have to come here and look at You?” What can we do? Never mind! If you don’t come here to look at me, where’ll you go? You go... (Come and look at Your picture, and go…) OK. That’s fine. But then, suppose you don’t have a picture, and you don’t have me to look at. And then what do you do? You go to Chiang Mai or Ko Samui and you look at the sea. And there’s water, and there’s sand, there’s people. And that’s all there is, also. What else can you look at in this world? Except me! I’m the best! Just want to show you how humble I am. That’s all. Well, if you don’t want to see a friend, then you go somewhere else to see other people, strangers, or sand, or water. I am just one of your many choices. No problem.

But relying on yourself, you still have to. And that’s the ultimate goal for yourself. You rely on yourself. I’m just one of your friends who knows a little bit more than the other friends. “She knows something that other friends don’t know.” And there are some things I don’t know, that other friends know. So you come to see me for what I know. And then you go home and make use of it, until you know more than I know, or like I know. And then you don’t have to go look at me. You still have to – you still like it. But that’s a part of your spiritual progress. People like to come and see their (spiritual) Teacher. It just makes you feel good. That’s all. (Yes.) There’s no reason. Why does love have to have any reason? Why does something that feels good have to have a reason? Why do we have to always reason about any reason. If we feel good, and it doesn’t harm anyone, doesn’t harm ourselves, we just do it with no reason.
