When people learn how to sleep...

When people learn how to sleep, they will awaken on higher planes. When people are awake on higher planes, they will not go into sleep, but they will go to bed and rest their bodies. When people are not awake on higher planes, they are always asleep, even if they think they are awake.

Vanity is a psychic disease

Vanity is one of the hindrances that we must eliminate if we want to improve our entire life. It is a disease of the mind. We call vanity a psychic disease. Children have it, mothers and fathers have it, as well as the elderly. Sometimes we inherit vanity, sometimes we build it. For example, if a child is praised too much, he will start building vanity. His ego swells and he becomes "swollen-headed." If people admire us, we become vain and think that we are "somebody." If people praise us or tell us how great we are and how we can do great things, we slowly, slowly develop vanity.

We sometimes develop vanity by trying to imitate, to live as if we are those images that people think we are. For example, people say to you, "You are so beautiful." You look in a mirror at your eyes, your nose, your ears and doubt that you are so beautiful, but you think, "People are telling me that I am beautiful." Then suddenly you lose your balance and think, "I am really beautiful; my body is just marvelous!" Even if you weigh five hundred pounds, you feel just great because people are telling you how beautiful you are. We flatter and admire people, until we eventually sow and nurture the seeds of vanity in them.

I had a teacher who used to say, "Don't praise people. Those who are really efficient and genuine, don't need praise. But if you start praising them, maybe one or two seeds of vanity are waiting to take root and grow."

The inhabitants of the mental plane

After sleep you may penetrate into the mental plane, which is a world of its own. You see there the mental formations of all those events which are in the process of manifestation, actualization, or objectification. You can see some Teachers or senior disciples who conduct group meetings to instruct people in the art of thinking, planning, and creativity.

On higher planes you can see advanced scientific, psychological, and philosophic work going on continuously. Students in and out of incarnation attend these classes, just as they attend our colleges and universities.

On the other hand, there are large number of distorters in the mental plane who use the illusions of human beings and try to impress upon people, who are as yet new in the mental worlds and can easily be deceived, their own interpretations. On this plane you sometimes witness great battles between forces of light and forces of darkness who fight using the force of thought power. Sometimes Great Ones can destroy an army of evil forces with one arrow of a thought.

People do not realize that the mental plane is often a field of battle where the future of the culture and civilization of mankind is decided. Great Ones continuously emphasize the need for right thinking, cultivation of a thought life, meditation, concentration, and contemplation. When a disciple passes away, his thoughts and his power to think, meditate, concentrate, and contemplate will be his greatest shield, protector, and weapon through which he will pave his way toward higher planes and inspire people on earth with dreams, ideas, and visions.

Anyone who knows how to have pure thoughts is a future soldier in the Army of Light.

On the mental plane there are the mental devas, Solar Angels, and Initiates who serve the Plan. They bring inspiration to the mental population from higher spheres. They appear as fiery beings. You can also find on this plane thoughtforms that are projected from higher sources. These thoughtforms are treasures for the future development of the human mind.

There are also millions of thoughtforms projected from living or mental beings. Some creative artists stay for a long time on the mental plane to plan for their future creativity on the foundation of a more intelligent approach -- a creativity that is not only beautiful and meaningful but also useful and helpful for human evolution.

It is very interesting to know that on these three planes you see many animals, birds, and flowers built of the corresponding substances of the planes. Advanced animals such as whales, cats, horses, elephants, and dogs appear on the lower mental levels. Other animals can be seen on the astral levels, such as bears, lions, and tigers. On the etheric plane you see some snakes, gophers, wolves, and other types of animals.

All these planes are the fields of our dreams, and our dreams are formed by the objects and events in these planes and by our reactions and responses to these objects and events.
Above the lower mental plane you rarely see any animal forms, except if they are intentionally created for certain reasons.

The inhabitants of the astral plane

The inhabitants of the astral plane are made up of many who are out of their bodies through sleep or because they left their bodies in death.

There are also astral corpses in that plane. These are the astral bodies of those who left them behind and passed into the mental plane. These corpses degenerate and create various problems in the astral plane. Decomposing astral bodies can even create a bad odor if they come in the vicinity of our homes as a result of some sort of association.

You can also meet on the astral plane the phantasmagoric forms created by human imagination, by the deceased or living astral entities, or created by some tragic movies depicting human emotional life. The astral world is full of astral forms which last a few days or degenerate and disappear into other forms without cessation.

On this plane, among the changing colorful forms of human imagination and desire, you can also see the activity of the dark forces. They appear grey and dark. Their duty is to keep people on this plane busy with their desire life and to make them continue to run after the reflections of their physical desire life. On this plane a wish is a form, a desire is a deed, and people are caught in their created forms as in the arms of an octopus.

Most of the dark forces enter into the astral corpses immediately when the human entities vacate them. In this way they cover their identity and mislead astral or physically alive people.

In the first case they mislead the astral friends or relations of the astral corpse. In the second case they come in contact through dreams with the living people who are asleep. In the dream they give many messages, covering their intentions with half-truths, and thus mislead people. Or they come in contact with physical people through mediums. Most of the "guides"of mediums are those dark forces who, having the astral bodies of astrally dead people and being specialized in their particular field of interest, try to mislead the victims of mediums.

Most pseudo prophets, channels, and mediums contact dark forces living in the astral plane. These entities are extremely clever and persistent, and they try to utilize any means to inject their poisons into the veins of living people in order to arrest their evolution. Sometimes they even know how to cover their diabolical activities with an artificial radiance.

Those who are out of their bodies and visiting etheric or astral spheres meet all these various phenomena, plus the emotional dramas, tragedies, and comedies of their own lives. If a person can bypass the etheric and astral planes by the power of his unfolding mind and spiritual orientation, he may save himself from many troubles.

The inhabitants on the etheric plane.

On this plane we find many trapped discarnate souls. This is the closest sphere to the earth and to the life on earth. Many of the inhabitants are those who passed away through committing suicide. They usually stay on that plane the number of years they were going to live on earth had they not committed suicide.

Those who passed away in wars are instantaneously crowded into the etheric plane and are in great confusion and agony. Most of them are not aware of what happened to them, but they know that their life is different from that on the physical plane. Often they are full of revenge, hatred, and passion, and they continue their fight on this plane in a continuous nightmare.

Most of the war dead obsess or possess those who led them to war or those who fought against them, or sometimes those who fought with them in order to encourage and increase their revenge and hatred against their enemies. Many of those who return from wars physically unharmed have deep troubles in their psychological systems and are never the same as before. War not only destroys bodies but also paralyzes the human psyche for a long time.

On the etheric plane are also found those earthbound people who are tied to the earth through their possessions, hidden treasures, or attached relationships. They wander around those living on earth who are deeply attached to material forms and other living beings attached to others to enjoy their etheric or emotional emanations. Often they try to possess living beings just to satisfy their own cravings for material objects, possessions, and positions.

On the etheric plane can also be found many kinds of beings who are called nature spirits, or devas of mountains, rivers, flowers, and trees.

A life of luxury does not bring growth toward Higher Worlds

People sometimes complain and say, "If I lived in a different condition or in a different country, my light would probably shine out in a greater magnitude." Once there were two brothers. One was living in luxury because of an inheritance from his wife. The other was trying to do everything possible to educate himself, to achieve victory over his nature and weaknesses, to help and enlighten people. In the end, both passed away and the one  who had been living a luxurious life was found in the lower astral plane, while the other one went to the higher mental plane.

Once when the brother living on the lower astral plane asked a visiting Master the reason for such an unrighteousness, He replied, "Those who face difficult conditions, serious problems, obstacles of many kinds, complications and dangers in life grow faster toward Higher Worlds than those who fall into luxury."

The hypnotist puts himself in serious danger by hypnotizing other people

The hypnotist puts himself in serious danger by hypnotizing other people. The portion of his aura that is put into the aura of the other person will be contaminated by the defects of that person, and, when the person dies, the part of the aura that belongs to the hypnotist will come back and pollute the hypnotist as a possessing entity.

During the process of hypnosis, the hypnotist himself is open to hypnosis. The subject unconsciously projects back to the hypnotist the package of vices, thoughts, and emotions that are the target of the hypnotist. The hypnotist is not aware that he also is deeply influenced and hypnotized by the subject during the session.

I did some observations on hypnotists and discovered that their inner world was so complicated by projections that they either planned to commit suicide or continuously enacted the projections of those whom they hypnotized.

The effect of the projections from the subjects on the hypnotist does not necessarily surface immediately. The time element varies. It may take a week, a year, or a lifetime, but the hypnotist cannot escape the effect of the suggestions that he planted in the subjects, nor from the effects of the unintended projections of the subjects.

Nature has a principle that cannot be violated without suffering and pain. This principle can be expressed in many words, but, simply put, Nature does not tolerate interferences nor imposition. It encourages individual efforts for self-determination and self-realization. Nature encourages those who assist people to achieve health, happiness, success, enlightenment, and prosperity by their own efforts to the degree that their karma tolerates. Nature encourages people to save themselves by their own hands and feet and "be a refuge for themselves."

Karma can be exhausted only on the physical plane

Karma can be exhausted only on the physical plane. Karma created on the physical plane will have its effects on the astral and mental planes when the human soul leaves his physical body and enters the astral and then the mental planes. It is his karma created on the physical plane that will determine his condition on the astral and mental planes. But the karma will not be exhausted while in these planes. The person will come back and pay his past debts on the physical plane itself.

Once all our karma is paid on the physical plane, we will be free not to incarnate again. Of course, it is possible to come again to the physical plane with a physical body, but it will not be by the pressure of the karmic forces but by our free will to serve the Plan of the Hierarchy and the Purpose of God.

Many Great Ones come to the world just to serve. Their life does not create karma because They live a harmless and sacrificial life.

Karma cannot be created in the subtle and fiery worlds.

Karma can be changed...

People have the opinion that karma cannot be changed. This is not true. Karma can be changed, although you need to spend more energy than the amount of energy you used to create the karma. For example, a true change in your motives, a true renunciation, a true penance, a real decision to change your conduct, a real and deep dedication to a great humanitarian cause, a heroic and sacrificial act can transform your life, minimize your past karma, or even totally annihilate it.

The Law of Karma corresponds to the laws of physics, chemistry, and space dynamics. It is found non in the domain of hallucination but in the domain of science.

You can overcome your karma by raising the level of your consciousness and working hard to repair the damage you did to others. You can increase your beauty, goodness, light, joy, and freedom and overcome a certain amount of your karma. Striving toward the summits of beauty and freedom breaks heavy layers of your karma.

Spreading the knowledge of karma wherever you can takes away an amount of your karmic taxations. Meditation and prayer help you reduce to a great degree your disciplinary karma. Your karma can be lightened if you never encourage people to increase their karmic debts. Your karma can be reduced to a great extent if you do not join or associate with people who are full of hatred, separatism, selfishness, and greed.

No one can progress if he does not help others progress

People have lost their direction. They think that they can make themselves enlightened, rich, progressive, beautiful, healthy, and joyful in working for themselves alone; whereas the truth is that no one can be enlightened if he does not enlighten people. No one can be rich if he does not make others rich.

No one can progress if he does not help others progress. No one can be beautiful if he does not make others beautiful. No one can be healthy without caring for the health of others. No one can be joyful and successful if he does not make others joyful and successful.

People have ignored such concepts, and now they see the accumulating chaos above their heads. Behind all our endeavors must stand the motive to serve, to elevate, to transform people's lives.

In the future, people suddenly will be enlightened to the fact that their identity and survival are guaranteed in others only. In the future, others will be more important than you and yours, and you will have more love even for your enemies than you have for yourself. These are very hard concepts for the mules who brought our civilization to the brink of total destruction.

Science has not yet penetrated into the higher domains of reality

Science has made unbelievable discoveries, but it did not yet penetrate into the higher domains of reality. For example, it did not yet prove the existence of the soul, the immortal part of the human being. It did not yet prove the existence  of Higher Worlds where higher consciousnesses operate. It did not yet prove reincarnation and demonstrate it scientifically. At the present enough knowledge and technology are available to do such a job. Such a labor is necessary in churches and in various kinds of religions groups to eliminate superstitious claims and falsified reports and communications and to bring these institutions under the clear light of the consciousness.

Many of "our" enemies incarnate in "our" nation

Many of "our" enemies incarnate in "our" nation, and "we" incarnate in the nation of "our" enemies. When this is the case, the leaders of "our" nation create all those conditions in which "our" defeat is unavoidable. "Our" enemies incarnate in "our" nation and progress into higher levels and prepare for our destruction. This is seen in the history of humanity, when so-called "national heroes" led their nation to final destruction.

With all our medical inventions we are not able to end pain and suffering

We know how the physical body functions, but with all our medical inventions we are not able to end pain and suffering in the world. The main reason for this is that only one part of the human mechanism is considered important; the astral body and mental body are left out.

The forms of clothes have their effect upon us

The forms of clothes, too, have their effect upon us. Change the dress of a girl and observe the change in her psychology. Unfortunately, most of the fashion designers are more interested in their income than in the psychological and beneficial effects of their products. One can stimulate the public with certain fashions and make them spend more money for the benefit of fashion designers.

If a healing is temporary and occurs in one vehicle only, it is not true healing

If a healing is temporary and occurs in one vehicle only, it is not true healing. It is not a true healing if the healer cures a patient for a Friday only, or for a week only, but forgets the coming years, centuries, and lives through which the individuality will pass. If the hidden, true cause of a sickness cannot be reached, it is better in the long run to leave the expression of the illness free. Let it exhaust its resources. Let Nature clean its own house. Once the seed is truly cleansed, the patient will be immune to a recurrence of the ailment.

Hunting for sport is as cruel as vivisection

Hunting for sport is as cruel as vivisection. On the astral plane, the animals killed for sport give their hunters a terrible time. The evolution of many hunters is blocked because of the cruelty they exercised toward animals.

Any conscious killing shakes the entire surrounding atmosphere. This is not a mystery but a fact. A living animal or human being establishes a regular pattern of relationships with the surrounding field of energy and with objects and other living forms. He becomes part of the fabric of life. When any portion of that fabric is destroyed, it shakes all the threads of energy and creates disturbances in the entire pattern which extend through the Subtle World up to the mental world. Such disturbances create a flow of excess energy or prevent the energy flow. In both cases, the disturbances extend to the Subtle World and, like strong waves, carry destructive results there.

Always use clean language and do not curse

Always use clean language and do not curse. Cursing creates a tremendous obstacle between you and your Soul. Always use pure, loving, clean language. A Sage says that when you curse you create a storm of dust in the Subtle Worlds which upsets the inhabitants of the higher spheres. You create dissonance, disturbances.

We must not pollute Space with our ugly tongues. If we want to be in contact with our Soul, we must take care of our mouths.

Purify your mouth. It is not so difficult. You do not need psychology, philosophy, or biology to purify your mouth. Just use your common sense. If you control your tongue, you will be the beloved one of the Soul.

Inner Guidance

Every time you have a problem, do not immediately seek counsel from your lawyer, your priest, or your friends. Ask your Inner Guardian. Sit down in silence and say, "What can I do? Please tell me." You will receive an immediate answer, but you must try to catch it and listen to it.

Sometimes the answer humiliates you; sometimes it demands labor and sacrifice; do it just the same. Just sit in a corner and say, "What can I do?" Talk with your Soul as if It were in front of you.

In the darkest hours of your life, the first one you are going to contact is your Soul. Shall I keep this date? Shall I do this? Shall I take money? Shall I give that money? What do I do in this condition? When you are really sincere, a beam of light will come to your brain. The idea will be so clear, but remember that throughout ages you built millions of barriers.

As you start to become clearer, more beautiful and pure, the inner guidance will increase. Then it will be so easy for you to call on It and say, "Inner Lord, I want to give a lecture. Can you help me?" And It will say, "Of course, I will help you." The Soul inspires you, gives you energy, gives you joy, strengthens you, and heals you...and you do not have to pay for it!

An easy life is the grave of the soul

Inertia, slavery to pleasures, satisfaction with your level, and contentment with luxurious living are called coffins which take you to the grave. An easy life is the grave of the soul. That is why your spiritual Teacher feels happiest when you go through crises and through the joy of victory over crises.

It is interesting to note that in certain times when you are in a crisis, your heart feels joy, and often you do not understand it. You think you are crazy to be happy in a crisis, but you are. Often your joy is the reflection of the joy of your Teacher, and at other times it is the joy of the human soul who sees things from a detached perspective.

When the Soul heals...

When the Soul heals, the healing lasts ten or fifteen incarnations. When the hospital heals you, the healing has a short life. It is the Soul Who must heal you. The Soul is that Divine Presence within you, the Messenger of God within you.
