Reincarnation is true so you should speak good words
and do good deeds and help the poor, beggars,etc. so you will have
"Treasures in heaven" (as Jesus puts it) and "Karmic rewards" (as Buddha puts it).

The 80's is the best decade musically and spiritually.
British bands, Band Aid, USA for Africa, Madonna, Michael Jackson,
Cyndi Lauper, Prince, etc.
Live Aid was held in UK and US on July 13, 1985.
"Song of the Bird" book by Anthony de Mello was released in 1984.

Even Lord Jesus believed in reincarnation.  When he was asked by his
disciples who John the Baptist was in his previous life, Jesus replied:
"He was Elijah".


Matthew 17:9-13 New International Version (NIV)

9 As they were coming down the mountain, Jesus instructed them, “Don’t tell anyone what you have seen, until the Son of Man has been raised from the dead.”

10 The disciples asked him, “Why then do the teachers of the law say that Elijah must come first?”

11 Jesus replied, “To be sure, Elijah comes and will restore all things. 12 But I tell you,
                        Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but have done to
                        him everything they wished. In the same way the Son of Man is going to suffer
                        at their hands.” 13 Then the disciples understood that he was talking to them
                        about John the Baptist.

"If one does not treat a beggar and a ruler equally, he has not yet
 attained universal love and contentment."
                                                -  John Henry  (a.k.a. Arnold Mollaneda Jr.)

James 2:1-4 New International Version (NIV)

Favoritism Forbidden
2 My brothers and sisters, believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ must not show favoritism. 2 Suppose a man comes into your meeting wearing a gold ring and fine clothes, and a poor man in filthy old clothes also comes in. 3 If you show special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say, “Here’s a good seat for you,” but say to the poor man, “You stand there” or “Sit on the floor by my feet,” 4 have you not discriminated among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?

"Godliness with contentment is great  gain."
                                                -  St. Paul  (1 Timothy 6:6:-10)

TO KNOW CHRIST

A dialogue between a recent convert and an unbelieving friend:

“So you have been converted to Christ? ”

“Yes. ”

“Then you must know a great deal about him. Tell me: what country was he born in? ”
“I don't know. ”

“What was his age when he died? ”

“I don't know. ”

“How many sermons did he preach? ”

“I don't know. ”

“You certainly know very little for a man who claims to be converted to Christ.

“You are right. I am ashamed at how little I know about him. But this much I know:
Three years ago I was a drunkard. I was in debt. My family was falling apart. My wife
arid children would dread my coming home each day. Now I have given up drink; we are
out of debt; ours is a happy home. All this Christ has done. This much I know of him! ”

To really know. That is, to be transformed by what one knows.

                                        - one of the many short stories in the book "Song of the Bird" by Anthony de Mello.

BAYAZID BREAKS THE RULE

Bayazid, the Moslem saint, would sometimes deliberately act against the outward
forms and rituals of Islam.

It once happened that, on his way back from Mecca, he stopped at the Iranian town of
Key. The townsfolk, who revered him, rushed to make him welcome and created a great
stir in the town. Bayazid, who was quite tired of this adulation, waited till he reached the
market place. There he bought a loaf of bread and began to munch it in full view of his
followers. It was a day of fasting in the month of Ramadan but Bayazid knew that his
journey justified the breaking of the law.

Not so his followers. They were so shocked at his behaviour that they promptly left
him and went back to their homes. Bayazid impishly remarked to a disciple, “Did you see
how the moment I did something contrary to their expectation, their veneration of me
vanished? ”


                                                     - one of the many short stories in the book "Song of the Bird" by Anthony de Mello.

PRAY FOR A CONTENTED MIND


Said the Lord Vishnu to his devotee: “/ am weary of your never-ending petitions. I
shall grant you three requests. Make sure you choose them carefully because, having
granted them, I shall grant you nothing more. ” The elated devotee did not hesitate:
“Here is my first request, ” he said, “I want my wife to die so I can marry a better
woman. ” His wish was immediately granted.

But when friends and relatives gathered for the funeral and began to recall the virtues
of his wife, the devotee saw he had been hasty. So he asked the Lord to bring her back to
life.

That left him with just one petition. He was determined not to make a mistake this
time, for there would be no chance to change it. He consulted widely. Some advised him
to ask for immortality. But, what good was immortality, said others, if he did not have
good health? And health if he had no money? And money if he had no friends?

Years passed and he had still not made his choice: life or health or wealth or power or
love. Finally he said to the Lord, “Tell me what to ask for. ”

The Lord laughed when he saw the man ’s predicament, and said, “Ask to be content
no matter what you get. ”

                                               -  one of the many short stories in the book "Song of the Bird" by Anthony de Mello.

DISCRIMINATION

I went right bock to the Religious Fair. This time I heard a speech of the High Priest
of the Balakri Religion. The Prophet Balakri, we were told, was the Messiah, born in the
fifth century Holy Land of Mesambia.

I had another exchange with God that night. “You ’re a great Discriminator, aren ’t
you, God? Why does the fifth century have to be the enlightened century and Mesambia
the holy land ? What’s wrong with my century? And my land? ”


To which God answered, “A feast day is holy because it shows that every day is holy.
And a sanctuary is holy because it indicates the holiness of every spot on earth. So the
Messiah is called the Son of God to show that everyone is divine. ”

                                                              -  one of the many short stories in the book "Song of the Bird" by Anthony de Mello.
