this is your lucky day
Quotes
These three things are to be taken note of: the lowest love is sex - it is physical - and the highest refinement of love is compassion. Sex is below love, compassion is above love; love is exactly in the middle. Very few people know what love is. Ninety-nine percent of people, unfortunately, think sexuality is love - it is not. Sexuality is very animal; it certainly has the potential of growing into love, but it is not actual love, only a potential.... If you become aware and alert, meditative, then sex can be transformed into love. And if your meditativeness becomes total, absolute, love can be transformed into compassion. Sex is the seed, love is the flower, compassion is the fragrance. Buddha has defined compassion as love plus meditation. When your love is not just a desire for the other, when your love is not only a need, when your love is a sharing, when your love is not that of a beggar but an emperor, when your love is not asking for something in return but is ready only to give - to give for the sheer joy of giving - then add meditation to it and the pure fragrance is released. That is compassion; compassion is the highest phenomenon.

My first trip to Las Vegas was a real eye opener. I am not a gambler – or at least I wasn’t back then. I had never so much as wagered a penny on any sort of game of chance. Even through all the years of horse racing it was a very rare occasion for me to place money on an outcome. Yes there was the odd occasion when there was a 20-dollar on the nose of one of our horses, but those tickets were usually used jockey incentives. They made great bonuses for the jockeys if they rode the horses to a win at long odds.

The gentleman that I was dating at the time was in the process of setting up business offices in Las Vegas. This was the first of four trips that I would make to Vegas over the course of about 6 months.

On the first full day there, my friend, Joe dropped me off at the Mandolay Bay Casino as he had business to attend to. I had three hours to explore the three connecting Casinos, Mandolay Bay, The Luxor and Excalibur. My budget was a little tight so I was taking my time carefully shopping for some small souvenirs to take home. I became so entranced with these places that I never did make it to Excalibur. I spent most of my time exploring the Luxor and its pyramidic energies that were confused with all the sounds of the casino. I loved it! There was so much to see.

As time went by (very quickly I might add) I realized that I should get back to Mandolay Bay in order to be picked up again. Just after getting back I received a cell phone call from Joe to tell me that that he would be delayed for an hour. Now I was at loose ends for an hour with really no time to go anywhere else. I had already been through the sites at Mandolay Bay. Now what?

I wandered on down to the casino floor to have a look around. I had never been this close to that much gambling. As I slowly worked my way around the floor I ended up next to the roulette wheel fascinated by the large amounts of chips that were wagered on every spin of the wheel. I decided to test my psychic prowess and asked Spirit to give me a number. I was given the number 14. The next spin of the wheel yielded 35 – close but not quite. Spin after spin of the wheel as I watched for about ½ an hour yielded everything but the number 14.So much for being psychic.

The gentleman I was standing next to played round after round laying chips randomly and winning fairly regularly. With roulette – when your number hits it pays 35 to 1. It’s a big pay off if you can hit the right number.

Just as I beginning to think that my psychic prowess was about as useful as dirt in the casino, the gentleman I was standing next to turned to me and asked me to pick a number for him. I gave him the number 14. He stacked about 10 dollars worth of chips on that number. When number 14 came up, I was just as surprised as he was! He handed me about seventy-five dollars in chips and thanked me for the number. Incredible! I had won money gambling with out investing a penny! Spirit had provided me with some extra spending money while I was in Vegas.
