This Podcast: Relax with Meditation, will help us to see the world from a different perspective so that we gain more clarity, understanding, health, happiness, spirituality, and success in our life. Https://ask-rudy.com
Many people think success, money, and sex are contradicting spirituality and religion. It is even so that Religion became a business to extract money from the faithful people. Money and sex became evil so that Religion could exploit the people, for instance, the Catholic church is the biggest real estate owner in the world.
I believe Religion is based on trueness and faith in God. Sex and money have actually nothing to do with religion. In previous time we could not afford to focus full-hearted on religion when we had a family with kids… And then the concept was celibacy. Today we know that this concept promotes cancer for the prostrate and breast. We have to live a full life and should not forget God. After the Vedanta the world is desire, and we should live our desires to gain understanding, and after some time we will get peace with ourselves.
I lived 10 years in celibacy, was 12 years in Meditation retreats and had quite a lot of girlfriends. My spirituality went through the roof through a tantric love to a woman, and then I went on meditation retreats.
Fear makes you think wrong!
If the teacher is making a mistake and one pupil has mentioned that, then all the other pupils are moping that honest pupil. And that will never change. That means that the Authority can do what they want with us! In our school we have learned these 2 rules: 1. The teacher is always correct.2. If the teacher is wrong apply rule number 1. How can you be innovative or think out of the box if you? 1. Cannot think beyond of your wrong assumption that you have learned?Even you don’t know what are assumptions and what is true! Question everything to gain the truth!2. Cannot accept to be wrong? People who are not open for critics remain stupid!!! People think that intelligence is something that we can learn to answer some question… Intelligence paired with fear is like a bird with broken wings… Fear is a bad guide! True intelligence is based on fearlessness and intuition.Learned knowledge can help… but with fear is learned knowledge useless… Imagine you have fears and have studied aerodynamic and aircrafts… You are sitting in an aircraft and then heavy winds caused the aircraft to roll and tumble. Because you have learned aerodynamic and aircrafts you imagine that your aircraft will have an accident and you die… Fear makes you think wrong! So more knowledge you have so more you suffer when you have fear! When my friends studied medicine and learned the different diseases they checked always if they would have that disease… And many times, they even imagined to have that disease! True intelligence is always based on fearlessness!!! Until you have fear You cannot think correctly.

Episode 25 my last day at the Ashram
I went back after over 10 years to the Ashram in Amritapuri/Kerala…I was meditating the whole day as usual in the presence of my Guru Amma. Then I went swimming, the Arabian Ocean was calm and no wave. Somehow, we should not go swimming, but the older devotees like me did that always. Beside that I am an excellent swimmer/certified rescue swimmer/lifeguard. It was Sunday late afternoon; we had many buses full of Indian devotees in the Ashram… I swam my 30 minutes… good for my body… And again, I meditated for 4 hours… In the night my roommate told me, shortly after I left the water; a baby went in the water, when his mother was going to get a ticket for the Guru… There had been about 200 Western and Indian devotees on the beach… Nobody cared for that baby and guess… My roommate jumped in the water, when he heard that there is a baby drown in the water of the ocean.First, he undressed his white cloth… The Ashramites were complaining and then he tried his best to find the baby… NO CHANCES! All of these so holly Ashramites didn’t like to help, they watched the sun set and hindered my roommate to find that baby! … In Germany these Ashramites would go to jail, because they didn’t help or prevented the baby to get drowned! IT IS A CRIME! Next morning, they put in English everywhere signboards on the beach that nobody should swim. 99% of the Indians CANNOT swim and 99% of the Western people can swim. For what reason they put a signboard in English: “It is dangerous to swim”? That is not true! I went swimming every day for 10 years when I was living in the Ashram! Most of all Indians cannot read English nor swim!Even it is everywhere forbidden in Kerala for the Indians to go swimming because they cannot swim… For Western people it is allowed to go swimming. My situation was terrible, because people could blemish me that I have inspired the mother with the baby to go swimming. Then I had to defense myself and to tell the truth… Would never be good, the people would hate me! I could not stand the whole situation of dishonesty and I left immediately the Ashram when I saw the signboards. It was Christmas, so I went to Varkala, it is close to the Ashram. A half year later I read the book “Holly Hell” by Gayatri about our Ashram and the Guru… Gayatri was one of the best Sanayasin of our Guru Amma and the personal servant of Amma. She wrote terrible stories about Amma and our Ashram… The book became a bestseller! In India it is forbidden to criticize a Guru. If you abuse a Guru then the devotees should kill you, after the Indian scriptures (Srimati Bhagavatam). In our Ashram we had to idealize the actions done by the Guru and to rationalize the wrongdoing. So that everything was perfect… The suicide rate was so high that the government wanted to close the Ashram! Because we should not speak/care to other people. Everybody should stay isolated.If you needed help, for sure it was very difficult to get help… There were a lot of signboards in the Ashram that Western people should not speak or to be together with Indian people!? But I had a lot of Indian friends, so again I didn’t care. Regardless what a Guru is doing it is divine…? Because he/she is an embodiment of selfless love…? I surrender my life to God and I don’t need for that to be perfect! For me is God perfect, and that is enough. And I am happy that God has shown me again that this Ashram is not the place, where I should be!

Is love an illusion?
A true story… There was a couple who was loving each other continuously over 20 years…. This love was so outstanding and exceptionally that this couple got admired… From the beginning on, when they met each other both were writing a diary. Their friends asking them how would it be to publish a book about their great love… Both agreed. They thought it would be easy to write a book about their love, because they had written down their experience every day in a diary. And then they were reading their experience of the same days in front of each other. Afterward, they separated! What was the problem? On the same days both experienced differently their love…When one thought, the other love me so much on this day, the opposite was true… They could not understand, what the main thing about true love is: To love the other person, regardless of what… It is ONLY important in a love relationship that you open your heart and surrender your love to your darling… It is NOT important if you get appreciated for your love… Love is ALWAYS selfless! Love wants always to surrender WITHOUT ANY CONDITION! Love wants always to serve! I have heard it Millions of times: I love you…And I thought always that we will see! Deeds are speaking louder than words… Most of the time I have heard “I love you” because my darling wanted something from me…So that this “I love you” was just only a strategy… The other times, it was not necessary to say: “I love You” Bhagwan and I understood independently so more often you say “I love you” so faster the love will end! It is counterproductive to say, I love you!

Don’t buy something that you don’t need now or that you don’t really need.Go through your living place and check how much stuff you have stored that you don’t need or even didn’t use at all… Get rid of them to make space. Don’t be a hoarder or collector of useless stuff.Guess, afterward you feel much better! Don’t buy a new car because they are too expensive! Buy stuff that can make you money! Get a job where you are not indispensable so you get power from that… When you are easily replaceable, then you are always in a bad situation… Most people are dishonest and unreliable and don’t do the work good! They are wasting their time instead to work… If you are honest and reliable, do every work good as you can and don’t waste your time… Guess,… If you have skills on demands, like plumbers… You will get always a job. Self-sufficiency is king! So, you don’t have to rely on other people.Have the skills to fix and build things by yourself. Learn even more things to do by yourself. Redundancy is God. Make always a copy (two copies are better) of your data…Regardless where. So many people got stranded because they didn’t have a copy! Wisdom is to see everything in a big greater picture. The mass is ALWAYS wrong! Said Earl Nightingale…If you have the choice to choose between two groups, a big group and a small group..If you choose always to follow the small group you rarely make any mistake in follow the small group for your whole life! Marry early otherwise it is too late! You can adapt to another person much easier when you are young! If you would empty your mind with meditation, then you are getting better so older you become otherwise your memories drawn you down! Because we are getting much worse experience than good experience! Everybody should learn to cook healthy his own stuff. From that depends our life quality! Additionally, you need to make every day your body exercise. Every old smart person will agree to that. Living a simple, honest life sounds like a successful one to me. Success like many things is in the eyes of the beholder. Many people are rich.But have lost their true self or sold their souls to get there. Don't take life too seriously, nobody makes it out alive. It's all about Perspective....Without the Pain you would not know true Happiness.It's never too late.... As the old saying goes: Our failures make us stronger. "Every man is guilty of all the good he did not do" Voltaire Rich is the man who is happy with his lot. It has never been about money. What a sad state if it is. Be generous, have gratitude, be humble; and happiness will find a place in your soul.

Abortion or not abortion?
Women are the only creatures that can create life… The females are most important! Males are superfluous… You need only the sperm of a male to procreate and then you can kill the male! This is the reason that males are more mission/goal -driven or to become a master, to create new things… than females. Most aging women who never had children are feeling unfulfilled in their life because they didn’t live their life mission to be a mother! In the Western World more than 1/4 of the kids had been unwanted kids… And the mothers took the responsibility to give birth to that unwanted kid. Maybe you are like me that had been an unwanted kid? Even you get that unwanted kid you can enjoy being together with that kid. And this kid will fill that void inside of yourself… After some years, almost every woman who gave birth to that unwanted kid feel that the decision was the best to get that unwanted kid! Almost every mother got the resources to grow up a kid! Most of the women who made an abortion felt depressed/guilty/unworthy about the abortion and that often for their whole life. Do you think honesty that you will have the grace of the Lord when you abort a kid? Do you think that you will lose the grace of the Lord if you abort a kid? For sure. Nevertheless, I think that the women should have the option to abort a kid in the first 3 months of their pregnancy… What do you think?
