The prophets are not known in their time because they are speaking from a Reality beyond the time of the people. Yet the truth of the prophets is always true because it is timeless. The story of the human being is of one who sits on a treasure and reads books about treasure and travels to find it. We should look for what was lost where it was buried - in our own house. Spirituality is the challenge to be alive. You will find the meaning of life only by practicing spirituality. Everyone has a share of the Divine. Work to find your share. As the road gets narrow, it is more difficult to find. A genuine spiritual path is practical. It is a school of meaning, not a school of literature or language. Everyday is a day of graduation. Graduate from the last day into a new day. Are you tempted by the gold coin on the ground, or guided by morality and ethics? The prophets received the message from the Divine, in a place beyond limitation. Heaven is close, the Divine is close. Do not interfere. Let people find the way. Allow them to walk there themselves.
