How Do You Handle Skepticism?
Question: Why is there so much skepticism about spiritual masters in the U.S.? How do you handle people who do not believe you?
Answer: There is much skepticism in the West for two reasons. Number one, the cultural values in America are both secular and materialist. That means most people don’t believe in that which they can’t see. And also, too many teachers have fallen from grace due to bad behavior. This has created a lot of cynicism and doubt. I handle people who do not believe me with kindness and encouragement.
