The way of the Angel
We see angels with wings, able to fly; they're free. Yet, when we see human beings they've got their feet stuck to the ground and they're caught up with all the mud and all the activity down here. Human beings are so full of desires that even when someone comes to them and says, "Come on, come on, come out of there and be liberated from it." They reply, "No, no, I'm quite happy here." Human beings have attachments. When we come near an angel, we are able to let go of all those attachments. And it's in that pure experience that peace is able to draw you. There is the realization of how much peacelessness and sorrow there was before.
That's the intellect of an angel like? What are the eyes of an angel like? What's the speech of an angel like? Do angels speak? Do they actually use their legs to walk? They are very sweet and much loved. The smile of an angel is such that it removes any inner pain. Angels are always seen above the earth. When we allow our intellect to go above, then we are able to see an angel. When we look at an angel, we forget our culture, our religion, the colour of our skin. We don't need to worry about learning the language of an angel, we'll definitely be able to understand them. They communicate through the language of the eyes and the language of a smile; a language we'll be able to understand very easily.
Every pose of an angel is very sweet and full of lightness. We never see them worry. They protect everyone and always think of everyone's benefit. An angel will never have a particular friend or dislike for anyone, nor consider another to be an enemy. They have a kind, loving heart. Can we emerge the image of an angel's heart? They have a head, they have eyes, and their hearts are full of truth and mercy. When we're with an angel, it doesn't matter if we've made mistakes or we've performed a sin, they'll make us feel elevated and say "Remain in this way". Angels say "Whatever good you've done, take benefit from that, then anything that is negative, that's sinful, is removed. In fact angels have so much strength that they not only enable us to take benefit from what we have done right, but their strength helps us to continue to perform charitable acts, so that which is sinful is removed.
An angel is like a mirror that shows you:
who we are,
what we've done,
what we look like now, internally
what our true potential is, what we can be
and they actually enable you to fulfill our potential.
It's amazing that they can show us what we are at the moment and what our full potential is and how we can become that.
You can easily become an angel. Always have the faith, the belief, that if you do good actions the fruit of that will come to you. Just keep performing good actions. Just put something in your mind, your eyes and your heart; no-one can steal from there. Leave the rubbish behind, throw it out. Do that which is right, and do it accurately. Keep smiling, from your heart. Whatever wrongs have been done, either by you or someone else, forgive yourself and forgive them. Don't remember that which has been done wrong, and don't remind anyone else. Forget it and then experience everything to be very good. God advises us to become good and see the goodness in others. Just consider God to belong to you. Your food, your thoughts, your interactions, keep all three good. Then you'll become an angel.
