Truth Will Set You Free – Spiritual Story By BK Surat Singh Ayer

Truth Will Set You Free

Once there was a thief and he was looking for things to steal, but could not find very much. In desperation, he went in a temple where the Pujari (Priest) was giving a religious speech to many people. The thief had decided to steal money from the businesspeople, but after observing a new man's presence with different face he decided to listen to the speech for a little while. The Pujari was speaking on the topic of truthfulness, and the thief thought that the talk was not so bad...
Fetch Another Sort of Doctor – Christian Parable By Paulo Coelho

Fetch Another Sort of Doctor

A powerful monarch called a holy father - everyone said he had healing powers - to help him with his back ache. "God will help us," said the holy man. "But first let us understand the reason for these pains. I suggest Your Majesty confesses now, for confession makes men face up to their problems, and liberates much guilt." Annoyed at having to think about so many problems, the king said...
Waiting On God – Spiritual Story By Larry McNeely

Waiting On God

Has God ever spoke to you "through" another person? I would venture to say that most of us have experienced this, although some of us may not have been aware of what was happening. This recently happened to me as I was in the process of responding to an e-mail sent to me by a dear sister in my church. She was concerned about how hard it is to wait on God. I usually use events from my own life to help in ministering to other people. I told her...
I Felt The Christmas – Spiritual Story By Sahaya Raj

I Felt The Christmas

Yesterday while I was attending a morning mass at St Xavier's church, a 60 year old woman came in suddenly and caused quite a disturbance. Standing at the door with two photographs in her hand, she tried to speak over the sounds of the choir. Though everybody near her tried to tell her to leave the church, she stayed in the church near the doors. I symbolically motioned for her to wait until the end of mass. I thought she understood me, but when I went up...
Tested – Christian Story By David McLaughlan

Tested

On the train heading for Glasgow I raised a subject I'd read about the day before. "Is your church-going a substitute for Christianity?" My wife looked puzzled so I explained. "It's about folk who claim to be Christian because they go to church every Sunday but don't actually lead very Christian lives the other six days of the week."
Good Things Come In Large Packages – Spiritual Story By Brenda Barnhart

Good Things Come In Large Packages

Jacob was a stoutly boy, with round features through and through, including his eyes which glowed almost neon blue from round granite spheres. He accepted his roundness, for after all, good things come in large packages, or so his mother always told him, with a funny grin on her lips. He never understood the grin, but took it to mean it was their little secret, that the world had yet to learn this, and Jacob was the one to teach them.
Three Summers and the Southern Cross – Spiritual Story By Naria Satrick

Three Summers and the Southern Cross

"We are all connected to the Earth," she was saying, pushing the bead-adorned braids away from my face, then letting her hands rest on my shoulders. I listened, mostly because her mouth was beautiful, hearing her roll over the words in her native tongue was like music. I listened because the light touch of her fingers on my bare collarbone was somehow intense and exciting, yet at the same time comforting. I must have been silent too long, because she...
Going to Heaven – Spiritual Story By Anthony de Mello

Going to Heaven

A priest walked into a pub, indignant to find so many of his parishioners there. He rounded them up and shepherded them into the church. The he solemnly said, "All those who want to go to heaven, step over here to the left." Everyone stepped over except one man, who stubbornly stood his ground...

A farmer's daughter duty was to carry fresh milk to customers in various villages had, one of whom was a priest. To reach his house, the milkmaid had to cross a good-sized stream.

One day the priest, who performed worship daily with the offering to God of fresh milk, finding it arrived very late, scolded the poor woman. "What can I do?" she said, "I start out early from my house, but I have to wait a long time for the boatman to come."
The Thief – Buddhist Story By Osho

The Thief

There was one great master, a Buddhist master, Nagarjuna. A thief came to him. The thief had fallen in love with the master because he had never seen such a beautiful person, such infinite grace. The thief asked Nagarjuna, "Is there some possibility of my growth also? But one thing I must make clear to you: I am a thief. And another thing: I cannot leave it, so please don't make it a condition. I will do whatsoever you say, but I cannot stop being a thief.
