“The arrogance of man will be brought low and human pride humbled” (Isaiah 2:17) “Can I talk to you? It’s important,” said the young man who approached me with a big smile. Talk to me? Why? It looked suspicious. What did he want? I had to admit he looked sort of friendly, but whatever he wanted, I was not in the mood. Suddenly I noticed he carried a Bible and then I understood. He was talking about God. He was converting people, and I was to be his next victim. No way. Not me. “You know God?” he asked when he came close. He seemed genuinely happy, but since I was not, I could not let him get close to me. I looked at him with an air of self-righteousness. Who was he to know what I needed? Had he read the Tibetan Book of The Dead, as I had? Had he studied meditation and yoga as I had? I was even highly experienced in the use of mind-altering drugs.
