When it comes to living in the moment and being more enlightened, you might have some questions that you’d like answered. For instance, you might be saying, “Dr. Puff, how do I reach that point? Is there anything I can do to speed up the process of waking up and of having a life filled with the present?”
Who we are is very simple. We are the Supreme Reality. Everything comes from that and is a reflection of that. We are really like the sun and our lives that we?re experiencing right now are like the dewdrops that are reflecting the sun. Another way to look at it is to see life as a dream. We are dreaming this life. We are the dreamer of our lives. Our lives are being dreamed. Life is really just an extended dream and we are the dreamer, which is the supreme reality.

One day, a farmer was assisting in the seasonal chore of stocking an icehouse, when he lost his watch. Loudly bewailing his misfortune, he set about with his lantern and rake hunting for it in the sawdust on the house floor. His companions joined him in the search, but their clamorous seeking failed to turn up the watch. When the men went to lunch, a small boy slipped quietly into the house and found the watch! Asked by the astonished owner how he had done it, the youngster explained: "Well, sir, I just lay down on the sawdust and kept very still and silent, and soon I heard the watch ticking."
Fasting has some great significance in our life. All religions of the world advocate fasting for varying periods of days and months on various occasions for their followers. Fasting is a spiritual practice to be found in all religions. The great founders of various faiths practiced quite rigorous fasting as a preliminary to attaining their first experience of spiritual enlightenment and communion with God. Most believe fasting as a way to subdue them in order to strengthen spiritually. It intensifies the consciousness of God in our hearts, resulting in a higher spiritual experience. Many consider that fasting is an efficient brake to the demanding senses and sublimates one's desires to mellow the mind.
