Objections to Marriage

We pray that we are not too late in putting up this response. A woman in Selangor, Malaysia, asks Gurudeva what to do regarding her desires to marry a certain man. His family is now objecting, and their situation has driven them both to tears. Gurudeva's answer is clear cut. He says that since both are now adults, the parents have missed their opportunity to arrange a marriage. It is too late now for them to object. Gurudeva says, "Go ahead with your plans and live a happy life."

We must live in the now to follow the path to enlightenment. In the lower realms of the mind, where time and space seem very real, we are worried about the past or concerned about the future. These two intermingle and limit conscious awareness.
