Heaven and Hell; Keeping Good Company

A cyberspace devotee from Trinidad asks if there is a heaven and a hell. Gurudeva explains that heaven and hell can be translated into the higher nature and the lower nature. Another cyber devotee from Malaysia wonders why people don't practice what they preach. Gurudeva suggests that a path be chosen and that one associates with those on the same path to do well in life.

So loved is Siva-Shakti that all have an intimate relationship. So vast is His vastness, so over-powering is He that men cringe to transgress His will. So talked of is He that His name is on the lips of everyone--for He is the primal sound.
