Does the cycle of life and death never end?
The whole world is like that. It is all spherical; everything moves in cycles. You have to come back, but you have a choice. If you are born out of compulsion then it’s the same old story again and again. But if you get liberated, then you have the choice and the will to be born when you want. When you come back after being liberated, it is joyful.

Canaanite Woman and the Silence Of God

Sent by Gordon:

Silence Of God

God will come at an unexpected moment. He may not come as we expect. But, certainly He will come. He will hear our prayer one day. One day I was meditating on the conversation that took place between Jesus and the Canaanite woman narrated in the Scripture (Mt15:21-28, Mk7:24-30). I was a bit disturbed at the way Jesus humiliated that poor Canaanite woman. She had a lot of expectations from Jesus. She was sure that her daughter would be healed by the mighty power of Jesus. With this hope, she came to Jesus. But, unfortunately, “He did not answer her at all” (Mt.15:23). He was silent in front of her. All her expectations were been shattered. Even the disciples came to her aid. But Jesus said, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel” (Mt15:24). But, she was persistent and did not leave him. She pleaded with him again, “Lord help me”. He answered, “It is not fair to take the children's food and throw it to dogs”. Though she was disappointed again, she said, “Yes Lord, yet even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master's table”. At last, this time, Jesus heard her prayer. He healed her daughter.
