Love makes you live the future

Love gives you direction. Direction is the link between what you are now and what you can become in the future.

Love makes you see the future; love makes you live the future in your daily life. Health is living the future. Joy is the awareness that you are living in your future visions and achievements.

Joy has a very healing effect on our physical, emotional, and mental bodies

Joy has a very healing effect on our physical, emotional, and mental bodies. It is a great vitamin and an antibiotic. It must be taken every day, even every hour if possible.

Joy is one of the greatest gifts of Nature. It is an energy which can be used in our daily life through all that we do, speak, and think.

A joyful man radiates healing energy. With the energy of joy, he builds a radioactive shield around his body in which his physical organs and glands are protected from any visible and invisible attacks. A joyful man also protects a group, a family; even one's belongings feel safe with a joyful man.

Animals act more intelligently in the presence of a joyful man. They love his smell, they love his radiant colors, and they obey him. A joyful man can train animals, and they do all possible things to please him because his joy nourishes them and gives them greater pleasure.

The articles and clothes that a joyful man uses last longer. Joy feeds them and keeps their magnetic aura healthy.

Flowers and trees adore a joyful man. In the presence of a joyful man, they emanate an extra quantity of fragrance to express their gratitude to him. Sometimes they even bloom out of season to greet him, to salute him, and to express their love to him.

Some poisonous plants do not harm those who are joyful. Plants do not like gloomy, negative people; they like joyful people because joy creates rapport between them. Through joy the communication field of plants extends, and they feel closer to the human kingdom and sense its strivings.

Plants, herbs, and trees sometimes give out secret emanations to those they love to heal them, to inspire them, to encourage them, and to keep them alive, healthy, and joyful. Plants, herbs, roots, and trees give their healing powers to those who have more love and more joy in their heart.

The same herb affects people differently. If a man is negative, full of ill will, hatred, and fear, the healing effect is much less. But if a man is joyful, he consumes the essence of the herb like a fire.

Joy is the electrical current of the Soul

Joy is the electrical current of the Soul which passes through the physical, emotional and mental bodies, aligns, integrates and charges them, and flows through them, creating a unity and synthesis through which the influence of your Soul expresses itself.

Joy increases as you leave behind the lower bodies and contact the Inner Watch from within your soul. Thus joy is not a condition, but a flow of Soul-energy, which you may even feel in certain adverse or challenging conditions. The moment you contact the Inner Guide, Its electricity is released. This is joy.

In the next century [21st], medicine will start to worry about the etheric, astral, and mental bodies

In the next century [21st], medicine will start to worry about the etheric, astral, and mental bodies. Before a man passes away, he will go through extensive treatment to put his astral and mental bodies in shape so that he continues his journey in the Higher Worlds in a state of health. Actually, from the esoteric viewpoint, the Teaching of Christ was the medicine to produce a healthy subtle body for the future journey.

Volcanic eruptions are part of the battle in the Subtle World

Volcanic eruptions are part of the battle in the Subtle World. When the fire hits certain locations of the astral sphere to wipe away many obstructions, the corresponding fire from the earth rushes up to join in the battle and burn away the falling debris of the destruction. Thus, volcanic actions are controlled by the principle of purification.

The devas of the mountains are fiery devas, and they participate in the battle against dark forces.

Earthquakes are also used to clear away many obstructions created by the human hand. They are evoked by the destructive thoughts of human beings.

Hurricanes are controlled by mental entities, and they use hurricanes to clear away many thought formations; or they accumulate them in certain locations to burn through the power of lightning and thunder. This will seem like superstition to our scientists for a long time to come.

People think that bad weather, droughts, famines, and tornadoes originate from physical causes, whereas their causes lie in the lower levels of the Subtle World.

The increase of heart disease is also a sign that the lower sphere of the Subtle World is infecting the planet.

One cannot cure a person from depression, irritation, and anguish until...

Most depressions, anguish, and irritation are caused by the thoughts of slander and malice as they burn the network of nadis [the etheric counterparts of the nerves] which are the instruments that collect drops of waves of joy and bliss. One cannot cure a person from depression, irritation, and anguish until the possibility of malice and slander is annihilated in him. The fire created by these two vices burns the roots of many future possibilities.

Thoughts of slander and malice attract numerous low-level elementals which hang around a person, preventing him from coming in contact with the forces of freedom and liberation.

There are also the fires of virtues, which, as they accumulate, increase the glow of the aura and make it a sphere of fire of many harmonious colors. This fire not only protects the man but also nourishes and strengthens every seed of beauty and every center in the various vehicles. The fires of virtues build a network of communication with Higher Worlds and expel any dark attack from lower elementals.

Democracy is an atomic bomb

For a long time people thought that democracy is a sacred cow which could be milked in any situation to secure self-benefit. Thus democracy paved the way for those who were intelligent enough to use it to destroy the freedom of others and gain supremacy.

One day a friend of mine said, "Democratically, you have no right to prevent me from doing all kinds of crime and slandering people."

Truly, democracy is an atomic bomb that must not be given into the hands of those who are not ready yet to use it for the body of humanity.

People must be trained and disciplined to be world citizens before they advance in a pseudo democracy. True democracy cannot come by the force of law but by the light of real education.

Spiritual Imbalance

In the West and in the East, spiritual imbalance is a common phenomenon. It appears in those who, without preparation and readiness, climb the mountains of the Teaching to a high altitude and feel fascinated by the beauty and magnitude of heights. And they force themselves to stay on the summit. When they come back to their daily routine, they lose their balance. They cannot find a point of equilibrium between the summit and their daily life, and their mind and emotions enter into a state of imbalance.

When they come to the valley, they live in the summit and when they go to the summit, they live in the valley. In the valley of daily routine and labor they say, "Life is transient; nothing is real. Be indifferent about everything, forget about responsibilities and duties, and live a life that is not limited by laws and rules and regulations."

When they are on the summit, they talk about their pain and suffering, their desires, possessions, families, friends. They feel the pain of their past loves, divorces, and marriages. They do not fit in the valley nor in the summit.

Imbalanced people go to the streets and stages and shout, "Do not think that you exist. It is all vain, all shadows -- all is emptiness." They do not have any knowledge about anything that is real, so they live an unreal life between their dreams and daily facts.

When people notice such behavior, they say that these people are philosophers. Sometimes they say, "They are nothing." Other times the say, "They are important people."

Reality is the balance between spirit and matter, between the abstract and concrete.

Imbalanced people say, "Do not listen to all the wise words you hear; just experience life. Let life flow through you." But if you ask them about life, they do not have any concept about it. They talk and talk, always contradicting themselves. They want people to listen to them, but they give them only confusion.

They say, "Go deeper into yourself and you will find nothing - no self. There is only emptiness there." This is the state when they lose their balance. WHO is really going deep and experiencing if there is no one there? It is just at this point that they lose contact with their sanity. Such distorted minds say, "There is only nothingness in you." But how can one know that there is nothingness in himself if he is a nothing?

They say, "There is no soul, no individuality. There is no me; there is no you." When then did life create you and me and others? Why are you denying the existence of all things that exist that can be proven by our senses?

Multiplicity is as real as unity. Multiplicity has its time and unity has its time. Both are real. Unity cannot deny multiplicity and multiplicity cannot deny unity.

Some of these people are very engaged in concepts of the Teaching such as voidness, emptiness. Because emptiness and voidness for them are physical phenomena, they do not see the fact that emptiness in reality refers to fullness, reality, objectivity.

Such people advise us and say, "Do nothing." It means to lie down in your spiritual and physical grave.

Striving is a process to remove all hindrances against your growth and expansion. It takes action, effort, struggle, and patience.

Not a single atom is static. All is active. All is going to its destination. To have destination and to strive toward it bring sanity.

The real Teaching does not cause confusion, but step by step expands the consciousness and makes people sense the reality on their own plane.

There is only reality. Unreality does not exist. The Teaching helps people to live in reality wherever they are. Having reality makes people real.

Conscious humiliation

In the western world, people protect their pride and ego by all means, even unto death.

But on the path of spiritualization, people feel their worthlessness and go through a discipline of conscious humiliation. For example, they stand under the midnight stars and feel their nothingness. They stand in front of oceans, in the presence of tornadoes, earthquakes, floods, and see how insignificant the are. Also, they realize and understand the greatness of geniuses - great painters, scientists, heroes, artists -- and see how their life flows in valleys and canyons.

But the greater humiliation comes when a person, possessing the gift of great visions and understanding of higher principles and standards, sees his own failures, defeats, the poverty of his life, and his lack of fulfillment.

In some spiritual disciplines, humiliation is the first step to crush your ego and vanity, your dream castles, and get you to feel your own level of reality. After you feel your own level of reality, you begin to travel toward the heights with a true sense of reality and humility.

Slander

Some people when they feel the uselessness of their life with a awareness of failure, maliciously attack others, slander them, and try to destroy their reputation and life. This they do just to make themselves feel that they still have value, they still exist, and they still can operate and draw attention from people. But in such an effort to prove to themselves that they still exist, they find themselves in deeper and deeper despair and emptiness.

For a while the fight against their victim keeps them alive, but as the victim is knocked down or even annihilated or is unmoved by their attack, they feel that they have totally lost their existence. This leads them to depression and suicide.

The awareness of your existence cannot be restored by the destruction of others but by the affirmation of the existence of others. Attacking others slowly reduces your existence. Recognizing the values of others builds your awareness of your own existence.

People destroy themselves in trying to destroy others for the sake of their hatred, anger, jealously, and fear.

Man is created in such a way that he can regenerate and vivify himself only in regenerating and vivifying others. This is a most mystic law.

People slowly become like vacant and abandoned houses in trying to deny others their values and beauty. They wait anxiously to see an error in others by their own standard or by their malice in order to attack them. Such an attack is like a thief who takes away furniture from your home and carries the furniture to another home, the owners of which you hate.

Our individuality is built only by the moments of recognition of the values of others, or in moments when we try to help others to overcome their errors. By giving light you increase your light. By giving your love, you increase your love. By trying to make people beautiful, you increase the resources of your beauty.

Try to be future oriented

Try to be future oriented. Always look for and ask, "What will be the result of my actions, thoughts, emotions, relationships?"

To be future oriented means to consider the results of your actions. Why are you doing certain kinds of things? "I want to be happy now." But what about tomorrow?

To be future oriented means to consider the effects of your actions not only for tomorrow but for future lives. Future orientation also means to have a vision for yourself and strive for it.

When the solar plexus is reversed

The solar plexus is a central station for most human beings. It has higher and lower sections. Most of the healing energies come to the body through the higher part of the solar plexus. When the rotation of the entire solar plexus is reversed, there is no way to receive healing energies.

When the solar plexus is reversed, it puts strong pressure on the heart and head centers and thus disturbs the balance of the human being. It is most probable that the person will start thinking and feeling in negative ways.

When the reversed rotation of the solar plexus continues, the health of the person slowly deteriorates, and in addition his relations with people become negative, harmful, and regretful.

You can see the reversal of the solar plexus in the eyes of people. You can see it in their manners and conversations. Such people are called "reversed" people. They reverse things that they hear and use in a reversed way all that they learn. One must observe these people to learn about the effects of reversal.

Our solar plexus temporarily reverses itself when we listen to slander and gossip, and if we engage in such behavior ourselves, the reversed condition becomes permanent.

There are many ways to remove such a condition of reversal. But when you are already in reverse rotation, it is as difficult to save yourself as it is to save a boat that is close to a waterfall. However, prayer, heavy labor, wormwood oil, massage, and healthy companions can minimize the danger.

There are two important factors which make our life richer and happier. One is forgiveness; the other one is good memories. Good memories are like sunshine, food, joy, and energy on the path of our life.

When we increase our good memories, we help all our centers to rotate in their natural way. Good memories are sources of joy, and there is no better food for the centers than joy.

Bad memories deprive us of joy, and when they are mixed with the spirit of unforgiveness, they slow down the rotation of the centers and can even reverse their rotation.

It is very interesting to realize that good memories have a deep relation to the spirit of forgiveness. Life is very tough, and we pass through the thorns of life unharmed only through the spirit of forgiveness.

Centers in our bodies are distributors of life energy. If they are in proper rotation, they bring in the life energy. If they revolve in reverse, they exhaust the life energy, just like certain pumps which remove water when they are turned in reverse and fill an area with water when they rotate properly.

Our overall mechanism needs the energies of love, joy, and prana, and the currents of these energies are interrupted by bad memories, harmful actions, and revengeful tensions. All these cause the centers to reverse their rotation, starting with the solar plexus.

Violence saps the psychic energy

People enjoy violence in movies, television, books, and political actions, but if they would realize how violence saps their psychic energy and leaves them as an abandoned house, they would never even think about violence. Violence destroys the magnetism of a man, a place, or a nation, and then brings disaster to that person or location for a long time.

A day will come when global law will prevent any form of violence because it is violence that rends the protective shield and invites destruction to an individual, groups and nations, and to humanity.

If one reads history intelligently, one can see how, in ten, twenty five, one-hundred years' time, nations have been destroyed or economically paralyzed because of national violence.

Those places where violence was exercised continuously are the blind spots on the planet, and they will never attract psychic energy for a long time. And wherever there is no psychic energy, that place will be spiritually, culturally, and morally barren.

People think that having the power to commit violence is a sign of victory, superiority, or protection. But history shows that violence committed individually leads to many physical, moral, and psychological diseases, and violence committed nationally makes that nation slowly degenerate and eventually enter the path of disintegration.

Where there is no psychic energy, hosts of dark forces gather and eventually possess multitudes and lead them into movements and actions against their own survival, happiness, and health.

Addictions, habits and associations

Addicts and victims of various habits must be treated in a location different from their usual environment and among different people, to separate them as much as possible from those objects which feed the "associates" and their core or source.

Becoming "de-hypnotized" is the path of self-discovery. Every great Teacher is a "de-hypnotizer," one who strips people of their glamors, illusions, vanity, and ego, and makes them sense the Self. In most cases, the presence of the Teacher dissolves the hypnotic core and its associates.

One must remember that our glamors, illusions, vanities, and egos are mostly layers of "associates." An associate is a link to the core of the habit. Sometimes great calamities, personal failures, pain, suffering, and loss destroy the core and its associates.

Science has not yet researched the human breath

When a person speaks, you can see in the breath etheric, astral, and mental elements. Science has not yet researched the human breath. In coming decades, an electronic analyzer will be built to analyze the human breath and identify the etheric, astral, and mental pollutions spreading not only in the aura of the person but also into Space. Thus, we spread subtle diseases through our breath, or we radiate healing currents through our breath and words or through our speech.

Sleep is sacred

One idea you must plant firmly in your consciousness is that sleep is sacred; nothing must interfere with your sleep because sleep puts you in contact with Higher Worlds.

One can improve his sleep if he sleeps in a room that is very simply furnished, one that has the least amount of furniture and objects. Thoughts, emotions, and entities in Space disturb one's sleep. In addition, thoughts, emotions, and emanations attached to objects and furniture can also do the same. For higher flights, all preparations and precautions must be taken, and small matters must not be neglected.

The images of saints

It is interesting that for one hundred years a phenomenon happened in families. People slowly took the pictures or images of saints from the walls and replaced them with images of "movie stars" and political heroes. This showed a significant change in the consciousness of humanity. And as they brought to their home more worldly images, the morality of the world gradually degenerated.

People thought that the images or pictures of the saints were outmoded or outdated, and that they could not play any role in the modern technological , scientific world.

The images of saints were rare sources of inspiration for the general public. They were the symbols of purity, transformation, labor, dedication, devotion, gratitude, and sacrifice. They symbolized the bridge between the mundane world and the supermundane world, the subjective world of love, joy, and transcendence.

In removing the pictures of the saints, such a source of inspiration and energy evaporated. Instead they were replaced with "stars" who strongly affected the children of the new generations. A majority of them learned from these images how to hate, how to kill, how to smoke, how to drink, how to use violence, how to commit murder, how to divorce, how to fool around, how to destroy families, how to destroy buildings, cars, and bridges, how to hate religious figures, and even how to hate sanctuaries.

The new generations worshipped those modern "saints" and as they worshipped them, they imitated the lives of those modern heroes and even literally identified with them. The images of real saints were taken away from their hearts, and the source of higher inspirations for them was generally over.

Who are the saints? Factually they are the ideal of the people's soul. Every one of us in our soul aspires to beauty, purity, joy, freedom.

All these aspirations accumulate and incarnate with the soul. Saints are the path that leads us to our higher nature, to our spiritual realms, giving us guidance, inspiration, and courage in our daily difficulties and problems. To be cut from such a source of influence results in the condition that we have in the world.

Those who aspire to be heroes and saints eventually develop all the characteristics of saints and heroes and are born into humanity.

Some people think that it is impossible to be a saint in the conditions that we have. Saints have always been born in the most adverse conditions, but in spite of impossible conditions their shone their light and built the path of liberation for millions of souls. It is even true to say that the adverse conditions of life not only increased their radioactive beauty but became also a means to spread their influence all over the world.

Esoterically, a saint is one who has passed through the Initiation of Transfiguration. Unless he is an Initiate of Transfiguration, he cannot shine the divine light that is within him through all his lower vehicles. Thus a saint is a radioactive diamond of divine light.

Saints are not only religious people. They are also politicians, educators, philosophers, artists, scientists, and economists.

Actually in a few decades the worship of saints will start again and increase, but such a worship will not be for the "salvation of our souls." Such a worship will be a process of cultivation and actualization of those divine characteristics which the saints have. It will be an intellectual, spiritual worship, a worship that will lead us to the source of courage, knowledge, inspiration, energy, endurance, fearlessness, and persistence and will equip us to render extraordinary service for the race called "humanity."

The images of saints are not images of persons but symbols of higher realities and evidences of higher achievements.

Masquerading

There is a phenomenon which appears and reappears again and again in the history of humanity. You can see it occurring at different times, in different places: masquerade parties, shows, festivals, dances, ceremonies, etc., in which people use disfigured masks, animal figures, satanic images, or they paint their faces to make them look ridiculous, outrageous, ugly, and so on. People have felt delight and pleasure in such festivities without knowing that the degeneration of human morals, health, labor, and striving begins with such festivities.

Historic research will clearly prove that before great failures, degeneration, increase in crime, and destruction, such festivities took a prominent place in the life of nations. The reason for such a destructive effect on human morals, existence, and health is as follows:

Through masquerading, one tries to build an identity beyond his real, essential identity. If one has an identity, he introduces into his identity a strange identity and creates disturbances and distortion in his essential identity. If he has no identity, he adopts the identity of the mask and his consciousness works within the programming received through the mask.

In our etheric, astral, and mental bodies there are found the prototypes of the form we have. For example, the etheric body is the model on which the physical body is built. Masquerading is an effort to introduce changes in the prototype and condition it to create a form in which we can mask ourself.

The prototype can gain and grow in power with any improvement, but it suffers and creates great tension when imposed upon by lower forms and inharmonious figures. Such a distortion first damages the spirit of striving, improvement, and harmony; then the degeneration of the person and the group starts.

Your real prototype is the basis of your identity. Trying to create a lower form in your consciousness is an effort to dissolve your identity.

Every human being is a seed, and he must try to make his seed bloom. Any effort to make a rose bloom as a weed is involutionary and retrogressive. You must bloom as the seed you are.

Masquerading is a forceful imposition on your prototype -the blueprint- and a cause of inner confusion. Actually, confusion is the first sign of losing your identity.

The crimes that are continually presented to us by our television programs and movies will create non-identities because the real, non-criminal essence of the human soul will adopt a new identity in the form of a criminal, and his evolution will retard for ages.

The conflict between your true identity and the false identity imposed upon you will result in sickness, diseases, crimes, depression, confusion, and suicide. That is how a person, a group, and nations end. Once your imagination is forcefully impressed by the ugly image, your imagination will try to manufacture you according to that image.

The real blueprint is the "image of God" in which you are created. It is a force, a source of energy, an urge, and it wants you to bloom into it.

Any force distorting that blueprint ends in disaster.

It is very interesting to note that our physical body may enjoy masquerade parties, clowns, etc., and we may also enjoy them emotionally and try to justify their existence philosophically, even politically. But all these positive responses do not prevent the danger of distortion, disturbances, and confusion in our prototype. Rather, these positive responses invite, attract, and make us fuse ourself with the presented ugly image and imprint it strongly upon our consciousness.

Once the image is allowed to reach your inner chambers, the conflict will start within you, and eventually your positive responses will change into painful reactions.

The ugly images, distorted faces, masks, and clowns carry with them a subliminal, powerful suggestion for degeneration. This is a fact not noticed to this day by our prominent politicians, psychologists, and educators.

Once I asked a woman who was in love with an ugly character in a popular film, "Do you want to be in that shape?" She screamed, "No, no, no... My God!" "Why not? You love it so!" "No..." "But that image is part of your consciousness. Can you trace the subtle influences it exercises on you and on your life?"

Sometimes we fight for a lifetime against imported and ugly images and waste precious energy. Sometimes we escape, but sometimes the bad example or the image molds us, and we become that repeated image. Why do we want to import such a danger into our consciousness?

Images of great success, nobility, and heroism will move the world on the path of perfection. These are the images which must be impressed upon the consciousness of humanity.

A person becomes like the one that he loves. This is true physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

When you want someone to love you, you dress beautifully, you act beautifully, you speak beautifully because you know in your heart that he or she loves beauty. Beauty builds your identity and the identity in others and assists in your success.

Love makes you a trouble maker

Love does not mean that you are cherishing the weaknesses of the other people; you must be very careful about this. You are not encouraging people to be bums. Love is totally different. Immediately real love starts, you will see a change in the world because love will tell you, "I cannot let people dope themselves. I cannot wait while people see these criminals and violent feuds. I cannot wait while these exploitations are going on." You are a trouble maker. You cannot stand aloof because you saw the truth. You have love and because you have love you have sorrow and suffering. When you see the beauty, the goodness, and truth and freedom and joy, you cannot anymore tolerate the things that are against these five principles.

Speech and health

Most of our respiratory diseases and diseases connected with related centers and glands are the result of foul speech.

Heart diseases are closely related to our speech and expressions which create conflict and turbulence in our conscience and consciousness. The heart functions on the foundation of harmony. Any expression that upsets the harmony of the heart leads the person into trouble. Hypocrisy, lies, flattery, and foul speech are called the poisons of the heart.

The kidneys are also affected by our speech. When hatred, anger, and fear are verbalized, they carry a destructive poison to our kidneys and urinary system.

It is also very interesting to note that foul speech accumulates fat in our bodies if it is charged by an intense desire to possess and control.

Any time you feel that you are on the wrong track in your speech or expressions, take a break; take a moment of silence and observe yourself.

Accustom yourself to keeping silence at least one hour every day, and one day every month. Start with the silence of your mouth. Then try to silence your emotions, then work on mental silence. It is in silence that the creative energies of Nature penetrate into your system. Silence is a progressive entrance into your Divine Self and into the One Self of the Universe.
