  Now that you are pregnant, you will have a baby to care for, provide nourishment for, and worry over for the rest of his life. I should not say this since giving birth and raising children is a very normal part of life, yet many people do regard this as a kind of suffering. Suffering is in reality an extension of short lived happiness no matter what type.
  Here is a joke. The United Nations has sent many family planning experts to Africa because Africa is experiencing food shortage and an especially high birth rate. The experts hope people there will embrace contraception as a way to relieve the food shortage problem. To educate the populace, an expert took out a condom and unrolled it down his thumb to show couples as a demonstration. The Africans said they understood it. But, a year later, the birth rate was still just as high. The experts found it strange and asked, “Didn’t I show you how to put it on and roll it down?” “Yes, we did exactly as you had shown us by rolling it down our thumbs.”
  We will talk about the elements of earth, water, fire, and wind in Hevajra. A great yogi who has succeeded in Hevajra Yoga has the ability to maneuver earth, water, fire, and wind. He can employ the power of the earth to quell earthquakes. He can employ the power of water within his body to repel clouds so an optimal rainfall occurs. Optimal wind and rainfall result, neither too much nor too little. Fire is necessary, but not volcanic eruption or intolerable heat. Someone who has cultivated control over earth, water, fire, and wind has great power through Hevajra. With these powers, he also can control the sun and the moon. The sun god, moon god, earth god, water god, fire god, and wind god will all listen to his command. This is because Hevajra himself has extraordinarily great power.
  You may think, are such things possible? They are possible. I have discussed this before as Grand Master experiences many coincidental occurrences. During the three and a half years while I was living in seclusion in Taiwan, not a single typhoon landed in Taiwan. All the typhoons occurring nearby, during that period, changed their courses. After my return to Taiwan, there were no major disasters. I have been in Taiwan this year until May 27th. Before May 27th, there were no floods, typhoons, fires, nor earthquakes. Two weeks after I left, the whole province flooded. This is a coincidence! After I came back, there have been many typhoons. I can’t say what will happen if I go back now because there are more typhoons coming. And I also cannot talk about earthquakes. Japan, the Philippines, Mexico, and Costa Rica had earthquakes.
