The Flower Penance

A handsome young man sent Gurudeva a question along with a few digital photos of himself. He asks Gurudeva how to deal with the "big bad world out here" and the people who seem to do nothing but hurt others. Gurudeva prescribes the flower penance as a means to put the past behind, and he advises the young man to choose his company carefully.

What do we mean when we say there is no good and no bad, only experience? We mean that in the highest sense, there is no good and bad karma; there is self-created experience that presents opportunities for spiritual advancement.
