Lynn and I recently watched a late September program of Larry King Live. The topic for discussion was “God, Anger, War & Religion”, and his five guests were a Muslim, a Jew, a Christian, a Roman Catholic priest (and I thought it interesting that he saw Christian and Catholic as two separate entities), and one Dr. Deepak Chopra, M.D., under whose name they put ‘Spiritual Advisor’.

Now, I do not know why he calls himself a spiritual advisor, because at the end of the program, when Larry King asked each of his guests for a closing statement, addressing their views of where the world is going, this was Dr. Chopra’s closing statement.

“I believe we will make things better if we commit ourselves to doing so…we should become a part of the peace army of the world.”

The camera broke away from him to Larry King, and as Mr. King opened his mouth to speak he was interrupted as Dr. Chopra continued, almost as an afterthought.

“I will never give up hope, Larry. On the other hand, if we were wiped out it would not make a bit of difference to the universe. We are just a speck of dust in the mindless void; in the junkyard of infinity.”

Now I have to ask,… whose spirit is he advising on a day to day basis? Specks of dust don’t have spirits, do they?

There is a man speaking with confidence. But confidence in what?
