Wisdom From a Laugh 39

"Spiritual Power"
A woman went to the local psychic in the hope of contacting her dearly departed grandmother through a seance.
The psychic's eyelids began fluttering and she began moaning. Eventually, a voice came, saying, "Granddaughter? Are you there?"
The granddaughter, wide-eyed responded, "Grandma? Is that you?" "Yes granddaughter, it's me."
"It's really you, Grandma?" the woman repeated.
"Yes, it's really me, granddaughter."
The woman paused for a moment and said to the psychic, "Grandma, I have just one question for you."
"Anything, my child."
"When did you learn to speak English?"
* Beware! Don't dabble with the occult. There are many con-men out there who claim to have spiritual powers and the ability to communicate with the dead. Oftentimes, such people resort to fraud to gain money and material things from gullible clients . They try to have power over another weak mind through trickery and so-called 'magic'. Their actions are rooted in greed and delusion.
* Your life is in your hands ... you chart your own future through your present actions. Don't resort to so-called 'spiritual powers'.
* Lead a righteous life based on Dhamma; practice Dana, Sila and Bhavana. Then good Kamma will ripen for you.
With Metta,
