So, it's not like marriage or having a boyfriend, girlfriend, is hindering to your practice, but just sometimes it takes too much time, and then you have less time for meditation. Nothing is forbidden, it's just what is conducive or what is not. […] Having a partner, it has a different joy, but also a lot of work or responsibility, that's all. You have to know what is good for you. Not because you are on the Fifth Level, you are not allowed, or... Nobody says anything like that. It's just you know that yourself, that if you live single, you have more time, it's more easy.

(Dear Master, I would like to ask You that our meditation Center right now is far away from the bus station. I don't know how far it is, but in the winter I have problems with my feet. They are numb and frozen, hands and feet are frozen.) OK, OK. (I can walk in the summer, but in wintertime I cannot.) OK. (My walk from the bus stop is up, with snow. Can I attend group meditation less regularly in wintertime?) Yes, OK. (I just worry that later if the Center doesn't see me go to group meditation regularly...) Then explain to them. (...they won't let me go and see God.) Explain to them, OK? At home, on those days, you also have to meditate just like going to group meditation. (Yes. I have group meditation at home, because I have four people at home.) OK, that's fine. (We meditate together regularly.) Then explain that to them. (Yes, thank You, Master.)

I have told all the contact persons that they have to see the situation of the people. It's not like everybody that goes to group meditation are all good. And not all of the people who cannot go to meditation are no good. It depends on the situation. Sometimes they have to go home, like Âu Lạc (Vietnam), to visit family for three months, and they don't go to group meditation for three months. But it doesn't mean they are no good. Sometimes they’re sick or they are a single mother, and nobody takes care of the children all the time, so they have to stay home. If they meditate at that time, every day, how many hours, then it's fine. (OK, thank You, Master.)

(So, it's about those spiritual experiences. Sometimes I have a premonition, like something is going to happen.) Understand. (And then I already got a vision. And I don't know, shall I act on it or not? For example, like if to one person is going to happen something, like I already got a vision, but later I saw it happened, and then I don't know, shall I tell him, “Hey...”) To that person? (Yes. Or not?) It depends.

(Like for example, someone wanted to be initiated, and then I already saw that he was going to have a party, and probably he was going to eat something, and I did not tell him, and exactly after a week, it happened.) He ate meat. (Yes, or drank something, I don't know. But I never think of them or something, it just comes like that. So, shall I tell them or not? I usually don't say. I just see it, and I say, “OK,” and I let it go.) OK, maybe you tell. If it's something like that, maybe you help them. If it's really something helpful for spiritual practice, maybe. But don't always talk a lot. (Yes, I know. OK, thank You.) You're welcome. That's it?

More questions. (I saw a dream that in the mountain there was a castle. And in that castle, there was a terrace, a very big terrace. And I was watching from the terrace, outside was a beautiful view, panorama there.) Yeah. (And then I realized that there were two people flying above in the sky, humans. And, somehow I understood that if we want to go higher, we should be alone, and be very light in that way, that we don't have this heavy...) Yeah, that's it, you got it. That's the answer to your question about why people are leaving, leaving, leaving. (OK, thank You.) Yeah. It's good, huh? Living alone is good or not? (Yes.) He also survived. It is not easy to leave somebody. Somebody leaves, it's not easy for you, but it's also not easy for the person who leaves. Somebody has to make a decision. So maybe somebody leaves, or maybe you leave, but it's difficult. But when the karma is finished, there's not much... you just go. That's it! Just go. No thinking, no argument, no questioning, just like that.

I don't remember anything. That's why yesterday, I asked who is the contact person now? Because every time, if they tell me something, I say alright or not alright, that's it, and then I forget. There are so many contact persons, and I do a lot of things every day. I don't just remember contact persons. I rarely call any contact person, unless it's something special. And when I travel, I don't even bring the contact person's telephone (number) or anything with me. I travel just quietly, in case somebody looks inside and says, “Oh, what's all this? What's all this?” And then I tell, “Oh, I am the Supreme Master,” or what?

(Can I still ask...?) Yeah. (If we, one day, reach the Fifth Level, does it really mean that it is better to not be married or have a boyfriend or girlfriend?) Mostly, yeah. (Just alone, to stay in that level or is it possible to start...?) Possible also, but most people, when they go to the Fifth Level, they don't want to start anything anymore. (Thank You.) But if you still need, like, emotional and family kind of support, then you look for a man. It's not forbidden. Because... (So, it won't make you low level?) If you are not too much into it, and you still meditate well. (Can You please explain this attachment?) What do I explain? You know it very well. (Do I?) Don't you? You don't know? (Maybe.)

When people are together for a long time, they feel, of course, attached to each other. When somebody’s left, you feel like an emptiness. Even sometimes my assistants, they are so lousy, but if they've left, the first day or the first moment, it feels also like empty. But I am too busy to think of the next minute. So it's just for a while, and then I'm busy, busy, busy, and then it's gone. I know it's empty, but I’m not going to be sad or anything. Anybody who has left me, it's just like that. I'm too busy taking care of everybody else, and I forget my own sadness. It's alright. It's normal. It's the only way to live. That's the only life that I know that's worth living.

We have so much intelligence, we must use it to serve more, a bigger picture. Not to use it just for one or two persons. You can have family, but include it together, not just concentrate on just the family, and one person, two persons. You can have it, you can have it, but not just that. Then our life is too narrow. A lot of people, they have family, they complain. And you don't have family, and you complain. I don't understand. What do you guys want? Have family, no good. Don't have family, no good. It's OK, whatever. If you want a man, advertise on CNN, or go to Monaco and go taxi driving – always have some men hanging around. Some men always... I'm telling you: some billionaires even ran after me. But... I don’t know, it’s so tiring to go dating somebody, don't you think? (Time and energy, too consuming.) Yeah, that's the problem only. Otherwise, you can have ten families, ten men, I don't care. Time, energy, you see?

So, it's not like marriage or having a boyfriend, girlfriend, is hindering to your practice, but just sometimes it takes too much time, and then you have less time for meditation. Nothing is forbidden, it's just what is conducive or what is not. Never mind, you try. Try another one, or ten boyfriends, I don't care, and see how it goes, then you tell me whether I am wise or not. Having a partner, it has a different joy, but also a lot of work or responsibility, that's all. You have to know what is good for you. Not because you are on the Fifth Level, you are not allowed, or... Nobody says anything like that. It's just you know that yourself, that if you live single, you have more time, it's more easy. But you don't like it, also. It's a little lonely. But then when you have a partner, maybe in the beginning it's good, I don't know about later on, if it's good or not. Mostly it's only good in the beginning, right? I tell you, so what is it? But it's very time consuming. You have to take care of each other, be nice to each other; otherwise, it's broken. You have to invest, just like anything else.

Even dog-people. I have dogs, I can't just feed them and put them to bed, to sleep. It's not that. You've got to play with them, otherwise, they're sad, they don't eat. Some of my dog-people are very sensitive. I even have to invent a song, especially for one dog-person, because he's been adopted, and he has never been with humans, and he worries, he always clings to the house – he comes out and comes in quickly. So, I have to invent a song especially for him, like calling his name. One of the dog-people is called Zolo. So I have to tell him: “Zolo, this is home, where you're welcomed. Here, you are loved. You're my treasure, love forever. You stay forever...” Something like that I tell him. It depends, it depends on the night. I make up the words that go along. First, I told him: “This is your home. This is home. Here, you're welcomed. Here, you are loved. And you are my treasure, I love forever, and...”

Oh, I forgot, because I made up many different stories on different days. Like, for example, if he is not well, then I will sing a song like: “Take your medicine. This is good for you.” I sing it, I sing it. What I want to tell him, I sing in that tune. And then he's OK, he listens, and then he eats the medicine. Something like that. Or if he's wounded here – sometimes he fights. Oh, he's still very wild; he fights all the dog-people and gets wounded, so he licks the bandage, he wants to take it off. So I sing to him, “Don't take it off. You look handsome. This is good for you. Keep it for now.” Something like that. I just keep singing all kinds of nonsense, and he likes it. I just invent one tune, music, and then I sing all kinds of things that I want to tell them at night. At night, they listen more. In the daytime, oh, it's impossible. They bark, and they play and all kinds of things.

Even with dog-people, you have to invest time. So whatever you have, it's not forbidden, never forbidden, but you have to see the consequences, alright? The consequences. That's all. What is good for you. If the consequences of this and that are good for you or not, then you choose to have it or not to have it. Nothing's forbidden on the Fifth Level, Seventh (Level); it's the same. What’s this for? I have this. Oh, because of the song. I have to sing all that for my dog-people because when they were first adopted, he’s very insecure, so I have to keep singing to him. That's all. “Zolo, this is home.” This is your home. “Here, you're welcomed. Here, you are loved.” Something like that. “You're my treasure. Till forever. Love's forever...” Something like that. So he feels more safe, like, “Ah, this is really home!” Nobody will throw him out anymore. He’s always eager to go back in the house; he worries that somebody will take him back and chain him on the neck again. So I have to keep singing, affirmative. It takes a lot of time! At night, before they sleep, I sing this same song or another song. The same song, but to different dog-people, I make up different stories. And I forgot, because I just sang for that time. But some songs are very nice. I wish I wrote it down. I forgot. It's spontaneous, and I forgot. And they like the sounds of the music, and then they go to sleep quickly; don't make trouble.
