Truly animals can tell you things. Many people read in the Bible, or somewhere, other holy scriptures say that the animals can communicate with you. “Ask the birds and they will tell you, ask the fish, and they will indicate or instruct you. Ask the animals, then they will help you.” Truly like that.
He saw treasure, he saw other jewels, fruits, gardens and everything. He did not feel the desire for them, but when he saw this big diamond, as big as the watermelon, I wonder how big is that? Some watermelons are about this big. (Yes.) Some are about this big. Like half of my arm length, and thick like that. (Yes.) I saw them. And then, mostly people cannot buy them all, they have to slice it and give to use some part. Except the maybe big company or big restaurant, they buy them, then they can distribute, but for one family, if you buy this big watermelon, it will last forever and it might go bad. (Yes.) You don’t want to eat watermelon every day, that is the thing. Because we have choice, we are spoiled, we are spoiled with choice, that’s why.
Not like one of the stories in Âu Lạc (Vietnam). You remember I told the story of Âu Lạc (Vietnam), one of the adopted, the Prince of Âu Lạc (Vietnam) before? The king kicked him out. (Yes, Master.) And then exiled him to a wild island. Over there, he found these watermelons and then they survived on that. They even sold it afterward. He drew a map on the watermelon and the boat people found them, went there and they made business together with watermelon to exchange for other necessities, then he lived fabulously. Because he believed in God. The king, thinking that he has to be faithful to him, or grateful to him because the king gave him everything, even adopted him as a prince. But he said, “No, God gives it to me.” Which is true, because we have to realize that we came with nothing. Even the king also came naked, right? (Right.)
So every day, even if I give things to eat for the birds or for the squirrels and all that, I said to them, “You thank God before you eat. God gave it to you. God gave it to you.” Sometimes I forget, I say: “I gave it to you there, go eat.” But I said: “That’s from God, you must thank God before you eat.” I never thought it’s from me, even if I say that. Same with all the charity, or even the lecture I’m giving, in my heart, I always know it’s from God. And it is true, because after I talk to you, I hardly remember anything.
Whenever I have to kind of edit the BMD that you give to me? To ask me whether or not it’s OK? Any mistake or anything. And then, I read it or I look at it, I saw it, oh, it’s like brand new to me, like I heard it the first time. Of course, I remember one bit here and a bit there, when something evokes my memory, I remember. But I don’t remember the whole thing, just one or two parts of it, if I’m made to remember.
If you let me see all the lectures I made a long, long time ago, like 10 years, five years, back, back then when I was a beginner, I don’t remember a thing. And if you give it to me to edit, or to check, recheck, I sit there with big eyes, like wide ears, fascinated. Yeah! I was mesmerized: “Wow! Wow! That was really cool, really nice, really, really wise.” (Oh.) (Yes, Master.) Not because I said it, because I forgot it all, completely. And I had a chance to look back at it: “Oh my God, I forgot everything.” And I just sat there, just like I never saw it before. I sat like: “Oh. Wow, really.” Then I understood at that time, I understood why the so-called disciples love them so much, because it’s truly logical, truly real, truly truthful. And there is nothing you can debate about it. There is nothing that is not to like. (Yes.)
So now, we go back to Eden. Or outside Eden, we are out already, kicked out already, thanks to our forefather Adam. So god made many Adams. We thought only one. And they all made the same mistake. Aren’t the men so… unclever? My goodness! And why god did such a lousy job. Again and again and again, he made the same mistake. So, I think we can blame god also. Sorry, sir, you have to improve. I improve your product. So you can’t blame women and men, they struggle to live with each other, quarrel and having heartache, having trouble quarreling all the time, having broken marriage and all that stuff.
Because god did not make us perfect. Or maybe god made us perfect. We cannot blame god, it’s just us, we are not strong enough to withstand any temptation. But how can you withstand the temptation in Heaven? Even here on Earth, we are tempted many ways already. We cannot even stop our desires of one thing after another. But in Heaven, the things there are much, much, much more glorious, much more glamourous, much more tempting, much more beautiful. So how can Adam not fall? (Yes, Master.)
Maybe god knew it. Maybe god wanted him to fall so that they go out of Eden and spread all over, multiply into children, and great-great-grandchildren. And then fertilize the whole planet; make more apples. Thanks to Adam that now we have apples to eat, no? Probably, he knew how to plant apples from Eden. Probably he took one or two seeds, maybe before god kicked him out, god gave him many seeds to cultivate all over the planet. That’s how we have so many things nowadays.
Isn’t that a miracle? You don’t even know where it came from. You were born, you grow up and there we have apples already. (Yes.) We have watermelons, we have apricots, we have grapefruits, we have grapes, we have oh… jackfruit, we have durian, we have… Oh my God. All kinds of things. (Yes.) All kinds of fruit, all kinds of beautiful vegetables, and beautiful trees, which give fruit, give shade and give oxygen. Isn’t that a wonderful planet? (Yes, Master.) Isn’t it? (Yes.)
We take it all for granted, but we should realize that, really, we have everything we need, except we have to share with others so that there is no poverty, no hunger in this world. We have to stop polluting our planet so that the weather doesn’t become haywire. There are many other things that happened because of that, because of the climate craziness. Now many places don’t even have water to drink. Many places on the planet don’t have enough water to drink. Because we populated, populated more and more people all the time, and then the climate is not favorable for more people.
Nowadays, we have pandemics, it makes things worse, many people cannot work. Like fruit and vegetable shortages, and the price has gone very high. It is truly like that, because my company… If it doesn’t affect you, you will not… Because my company, for example, one of the vegan food making companies, they reported to me and said nowadays, many of the materials are very high-priced, (Oh.) and even shortages. Like they cannot export this and that, because not everything they make is from the native land. They imported some things. But it’s very difficult, many things have shortages, or take a long, long time to arrive. Everybody has trouble nowadays like that.
But this is our company. We work inside the company. It’s not all that bad already. Imagine, restaurants, or bars, coffee shops, they have to serve people directly. And they cannot, because the government closed many small businesses, except the essential. Like maybe supermarkets are open, but many others cannot open. And they are short of people who do the farm work. Even picking vegetables, picking fruits, there are shortages everywhere.
The other day I looked outside in the garden where I live. I saw one mango tree in front of me, but it has no fruit, no flower, nothing. In other places, also like that, only a couple of fruit because… and then I realized I don’t see any bees anywhere. (Wow.) Because they don’t pollinate, that’s why the tree doesn’t bear fruit. And then suddenly I saw, “Oh my God, there’s no bees around here even.” And the next day a couple of bees came, and wanted to drink water. So, I put like a basin outside for them. But they like to go into the sink because that water is too deep. So, I put some sponge. (Oh.) They’re more attracted to this yellow sponge, (Yes.) looks like a flower. They’re more attracted to color, looks like flowers. So, I put a sponge on the water, it floats so they can land on it. They can drink from the sponge as well. But I don’t see them anymore. Maybe they just came to say “Hallo” because I said there’s no bees.
It’s often like that, when I say, “How come there’s nothing,” then they come. The other day I also said, “Oh, it’s a new place, how come no birds?” And then the birds came. They came to visit, but then they left. (Oh.) I was thinking to feed them, but they are not like permanently here. Maybe from somewhere else and come visit, and chirping, chirping, singing around for a while, and then go.
Sometimes they come also to tell me something. But it’s not their place. (Yes.) They tell me things. Truly animals can tell you things. Many people read in the Bible, or somewhere, other holy scriptures say that the animals can communicate with you. “Ask the birds and they will tell you, ask the fish, and they will indicate or instruct you. Ask the animals, then they will help you.” Truly like that.
Nowadays, even worse, some people are so much influenced by demons. This is a time when the demons come and want to destroy the world. We have extended some years, of course. But it is still their time. So, even the top religious leader, I heard them say something truly more than nonsense, as if they all were made deaf, dumb, and blind. Or top politicians, many of them, as if they don’t see anything. Everything they do or say, it’s all illogical, all unreasonable, all very, very far from the truth, far from logic, far from reason, and far from the most common sense of all.
