Clean your mind from the false images about yourself and others

If you hate somebody, you imagine how ugly he is, and so on. You create a drama to justify your hatred. You justify your hatred because you have deceived yourself.

In order to hate somebody you create justification. And if that justification is wrong, you start working on something, doing something that is not based on any foundation at all. This kind of thinking within your mind creates storms, and then the rain comes. Try to clean your mind from the false images about yourself and others.

Also, people project their own ugliness on others and make them believe that they are ugly. In so doing, people also reinforce their own ugliness upon themselves. If they see beauty in others, they may impress the beauty on themselves.

It is YOU that builds your genes

I was reading in a medical book that the genes and DNA control the muscles, the glands, the behaviors, and the consciousness of people, but the doctors do not dare to question how these formations of genes came into being. How is it that you have cancer in your genes, or tuberculosis, and others do not? Is God really so unrighteous to create good genes in you and bad genes in them? Some doctors never dare to talk about these things because they are scared! Even if they know a little, they don't want to discuss these things because it affects their income, and for some their income is more important than your health problems.

Your thinking, your emotions, your actions, your speech create those recordings in your permanent atoms that eventually produce your genes. It is YOU that builds your genes. No one else builds them. God is not so crazy as to sit there and prescribe genes for you. Your genes are made by your own hands, by your own thoughts, by your own mouth, by your solar plexus or heart. The way that you are living and acting and relating to people creates your genes. That is why whatever you are, you are! You created it.

The Subtle World is the replica of the dense world

The Subtle World is the replica of the dense world - the life there is almost similar to the life we have here, but it is in astral matter. The life there runs almost like here. People do business, go to hospitals, drive, walk, until they emancipate themselves from the impressions of the Subtle World.

The illusion is so great that they live there exactly in the way they were living in the dense world. There are also wars there, armies and military equipment, and they hurt each other as they do here. There are millions of businesses and people who help each other, cooperate with each other, kill each other, wipe out each other for the sake of business, and make money in the subtle plane, money that they do not need at all.

Why does this happen? It is because people carry with them the earthly consciousness. When they enter into the Subtle World they think they are still in the dense world. If people do not have knowledge about the Subtle World and have not developed continuity of consciousness, they do not see any difference between the dense and the Subtle World and they continue their life as they were living in the dense world. This is because the life in the Subtle World is the projection of that which is in their consciousness.

Teachers or awakened people come to the Subtle World and try to help people there and tell them that this is a world of glamors and illusions, and urge them to detach themselves and prepare to enter the Fiery World. Of course the same thing happens there as here; people do not listen to those who want to awaken us.

Passage to Higher Worlds

Your greatness is equal to how much you make others great

Your greatness is equal to how much you make others great. By the greatness you create in others, your greatness will be measured. A great person is a person who creates great people around him or her.

The Tibetan Master says, "Many initiates, when coming to the portal of initiation, were refused." They asked, "Lord, what are You talking about? For eighty years we have done everything possible to be an initiate. We did it, and now that we have come to the door, why are You not opening it?" He will open the door and ask, "Whom did you bring?" "Nobody." "Get lost! You were working for yourself."

Do not let the potentials sleep within you

Do not let the potentials sleep within you. If you can paint, start painting If you can sing, start singing. If you want to compose music, compose it. Your talent must not be kept inside. It must come out. Maybe you have great national or international plans, or individual and group plans. Bring them out and share them with others. Show that you are an example of the vision that you have. This not only sublimates and transforms your life, it transforms also the lives of others. You will not have time for slander and criticism when you are occupied with bringing out your treasures and sharing them. Those who criticize and attack others prove that they have locked their treasure within themselves.

Glamor - Illusion - Maya

Glamor sets in your nature as a result of seeing the world through your wishes, desires, and ambitions.

Illusion forms if a truth or a principle in your mind is mixed with self-interest, selfish plans, and goals. Thus truth is taken from its purity and mixed with your ever-changing self-image and self-projections.

Maya is the crystallization of the forces in your etheric body that prevent perfect circulation of energy, and you feel weak. It happens when certain energies and forces come through your other bodies to actualize. Before actualization they meet the resistance of your habits -- primarily sexual habits.

The best thing for you at the present is to do meditation

With those people who are doing meditation you can see in their life that they are changing. I knew a lady. This lady was so tough. This lady was acting like a macho man. She can do everything, anything, swears, cusses. One day she came to me and said, "Do you think I am okay?" I said, "I see everything okay, but shall I give you a meditation to start doing?"

After doing three months of meditation, she came back and said, "I am very angry." "Why?" "You did not tell me I was a very bad bitch." "It is not my place to tell you that to you." "Why did you not tell me? I am doing meditation and looking at myself and I am just polluted trash." "Well lady, I do not say these things. It is better if you find it yourself." If I had told her, she was going to attack my throat immediately.

You are going to see. That is the beauty. You are going to see how silly you are, how stupid you are, how square you are, how tough you are, how unrefined you are. You are going to see it. When you see it, you are going to take constructive action and say, "Wow, it is better to put myself in shape because that is better."

The best thing for you at the present is to do meditation.

The false idea of ownership

Actually, you do not belong to yourself. This is a great truth and fact and idea that has not yet penetrated into our bones. You do not belong to yourself. You belong to your Soul, and your Soul belongs to the group Soul, and the group Soul belongs to the Planetary Soul. The Planetary Soul belongs to the Solar Soul and the Galactic Soul. There is no ownership. "Human gophers"created the false idea of ownership.

How One Can Serve the Teacher

One of the requirements of progress on the path of achievement of perfection is the service that one can render to Teachers, Great Ones, and to his fellow human beings.

How One Can Serve the Teacher:

1. By understanding and practicing his wisdom.
2. By offering gifts to him.
3. By protecting him and his name from malice and slander.
4. By propagating his Teaching and continuing in his service when he passes away.
5. By not letting any of his creativity be lost after he passes away.
6. By not letting people distort his Teaching and his true image.
7. By sending love and blessings to him during his life on earth and in the hereafter.

The Lotus Sutra makes this very clear when it states that one can become a Buddha only after serving thousands of Buddhas through his many incarnations.

The supreme duty of marriage

Generally, the marriage of today is a contract between two people which gives them an official permit to have sex with one another, to have legal children and legal rights to each other's possessions.

But the REAL marriage goes beyond purely physical concerns. It is a fusion of the emotional nature of the man and woman. It is a synchronization or harmonization of the mental plane and fusion of the two souls into one rhythm.

Real marriage requires intelligent preparation and full readiness of its obligations. At present, the emphasis is on the physical relationship with some emotional and mental cooperation. In the future more and more people will realize that the supreme duty of marriage is to help each other in such a way that the divine Self within each one finds opportunities to gradually manifest Itself.

No disciples of the world attack any teaching or religion

No leaders in the Teaching, no disciples of the world attack any teaching, any religion, but carefully study them to find ideas and meanings.

Disciples are inclusive. They accept similarities, not differences. Difference for them creates the power of discrimination. Talking badly about any religion or teaching deprives those people who spiritually profit from them, or urges people to attack them in fanaticism. Ways and means to approach the Presence can be different -- but most teachings and religions seek the same ultimate goal.

Everyone is engaged in the miserable work of slandering and belittling others

The worst situation in the world today is that everyone is engaged in the miserable work of slandering and belittling others. They tell you that you are nothing. This is a very miserable condition. Go to any movie and you can see this. They are mostly killing and destroying people.

Instead, we must affirm the inner Beauty and Greatness of human beings. When you cannot do this, it is because you are fed up with yourself. You hate yourself. You think that you are nothing. You think that you are finished.

Speech and health

You must learn to be silent in many, many instances. You must learn to speak only what needs to be said. Your level of achievement or whatever you are is the result of your speech. Even your sicknesses are related to your speech.

In all esoteric Teaching, there is great emphasis placed on speech - right speech without exaggeration. Even one word used unrighteously or improperly creates an effect on your consciousness.

Speech creates a tremendous vibration in your electromagnetic field. Wrong speech - criticism, lies, hatred - creates stones in your electromagnetic field. This is also the reason why great Teachers advise us to be silent when we are sick so that we heal ourselves more quickly. Whenever you speak about wrong things, you disturb and distort the symphony of your being, just like a man who enters a symphony hall and starts to bang on a barrel while the orchestra is playing. Whenever you distort your being, you cannot have health.

The Science of Complaints

Some people, because of their inner insecurity, express lots of complaints about the environment, about people, about the weather. This discourages people and directs their consciousness to unpleasant events existing in their environment.

A real person must never complain but instead try to analyze, observe, and encourage people in spite of conditions.

The atmosphere created by complaints can be highly toxic and flammable. Its affects the auras of people and slows down the centers of his immediate co-workers. Dark forces search for complaining people to destroy organizations.

Complaints sap the energy of co-workers and orient them negatively. They need, cheer,joy, positivity, courageous manners and attitude, not complaints.

Complaining also creates friction with the laws of nature and with the law of karma because nothing happens by accident, nothing happens outside of the law of karma. In the atmosphere of complaints no “flower”  flourishes. It has been observed for centuries that complaining destroys health, happiness, success, and prosperity, and builds a wall between the higher world and the lower world. Complaining leads to isolation.

Complaints impress on our mind that the effort of analysis, examination, or observation is hopeless, and you develop a rejecting attitude when life presents you with unpleasant events or conditions which are observed as such because of your psychological conditioning or education.

Complaints prevents your horizon from expanding and limits it to negative imagery. Complaints affects the imagination and thought form building process. Every complaint turns into a thought form through imagination, and time comes that the complaint is surrounded with negative and ugly thought forms and the person cannot free himself from their influence. Because of this his creativity decreases and his clear thinking slowly vanishes. The complainer becomes the victim of his complaints.

Instead of complaining you can study the events as if they were necessary part of life, teaching you lessons that you missed.

Complaints obscure the pathways of inspiration and the joy of touching higher worlds. Complaints create a psychic fog and even a cloud through which one cannot see the reality of superior values or register the flow of impressions so vital for the growth of the soul.

Every time you think of complaining, focus your heart on gratitude and observe. Complaints emanate waves of energy through ones voice, but the energy waves do not go into space. They turn inward and fill ones aura, thus creating psychic congestion.

Find a real Teacher who tells you directly what he thinks about you

Find a real Teacher whom you cannot buy, who tells you directly to your face what he thinks about you and how you can improve yourself. A real Teacher loves you but does not accept your failure, self-deception, and vanity. He breaks these things and sets you free.

"Soft" teachers, ones who are very sweet and polite and who do not dare to hurt your feelings, are called "caressers" in the old country. When a person is hurt because you take his mask away, it proves that his whole being is a sensitive wound, that he is not healthy. That is why he is sensitive, or touchy.

Caressers praise and flatter you. They talk about subjects that are pleasant to hear. But in the end you see that you are still the same person as you were before you met them.

All that occurs in the Subtle Worlds and here on earth is on record

It is very important to emphasize that the consciousness registers all that we do on all levels; it keeps these records in the permanent atoms and in the Chalice. When one passes away, he does not necessarily remember his past. Also, when he incarnates, he does not necessarily remember his experiences in the Subtle Worlds. Unless the Antahkarana is built, certain periods of life, both here and there, are left blank.

The records are stored in the atoms and in the Chalice, and they are also locked into the subconscious mind so that the consciousness is not limited, disturbed, or glamored by past records. In a normal state of mind, they are stored until the consciousness starts to function on the highest level of the mental plane and the Antahkarana is built between the lower and the higher mind and also between the higher mind and the Spiritual Triad.

It is possible to force the consciousness through drugs, hypnosis, or certain psychological techniques to remember certain events whose records are stored in the Chalice, permanent atoms, or subconscious mind. The results of this forcing are as follows:

1. Partial or distorted information is received.
2. The laws of Nature are violated.
3. Pressure is placed upon the permanent atoms and Chalice.
4. Negative physical effects on various glands occur.

The important point to remember is that all that occurs in the Subtle Worlds and here on earth is on record. The consciousness has access to these records if it is expanded purified, and connected with the centers to a certain degree. When Judgment Day comes, you and your consciousness will be able to see all that is recorded and decide your own destiny with absolute accuracy and righteousness.

Thus, man is the manifestation of his own karma. He is his own verdict and his own judge because of the continuation of consciousness, life after life.

How the love substance evaporates from the bodies

Every time you are thinking in hate, speaking in hate, acting in hate, you are ruining your aura. If in the future we put you in front of those big machines, which are going to come, immediately scientists will say there is a spot in your mental body and it is degenerating, going toward cancer. All diseases start from the higher realms because when love evaporates, darkness comes. There is no vacuum in you. When love comes, hatred goes.

Absence of love is the presence of anger, fear, hatred, jealousy, revenge, treason, slander, vanity, ego, fanaticism, separatism, greed, crimes, and wars. I call these fourteen the evils that make humanity unhappy, families unhappy, man unhappy, groups unhappy. No matter if only one or two of them are there, they are like an octopus in relation to each other. They invite each other in.

When you start blaming, criticizing, hindering, slandering, belittling, insulting, you are losing the substance of love from your bodies and exposing them to destructive attacks. Many times your destruction comes when you slander people and empty yourself of the love substance.

When you love yourself too much you become a wound in the body of humanity

Question: Can you explain the statement that one cannot love someone else if one cannot love himself.

Answer:Eventually when you love yourself too much you become a wound, a cancer in the body of humanity. All the troubles happen when a family member loves himself more than others. It is the same in the group. It is the same in the nation. If part of humanity loves itself too much, it becomes the center of the troubles. This is it. It burns wounds in the system.

Disease is the result of accumulation of those moments in which we act without love

Disease is the result of accumulation of those moments in our life in which we act without love, we speak without love, we think without love, we play without love. Those moments in our life accumulate or have accumulated throughout lives and eventually collected themselves, accumulated themselves in our bodies. They became disintegrative factors in our body, the source of disease and sickness and maladies and ailments.

Your sickness is the result of your transgressions against the rule of love. That is why in very, very old centuries, in Vedic times, in Upanishadic times, in ancient Chaldea, Assyria, and different places, when a person became sick, they pitied the person and thought it was the result of sin.

What is the sin? There is only one sin -- if you reject love, you are sinning.

If somebody starts gossiping and slandering, or his or her heart is full of jealousy and revenge, I say, "Sickness is coming." Two months later, two years later the sickness is there because the effects of the hatred are accumulating. If someone is clairvoyant he will see how the people are slowly, slowly accumulating dark spots in their aura, and these dark spots are nest of future diseases.

Do not believe when the scientists say these things are caused by germs, viruses, and those kinds of things. There is no such thing. Viruses are lives, germs are lives, microbes are lives. Just as you are lives, they are lives, and they have a right to live because God created them. How can they be harmful to your body, to your emotions, to your mind? They are harmful when you are not protected by love, when your love cannot transform them.

The germ comes and enters your body, but when there is love it changes into energy because every germ is a wave of energy. Many false teachings are given in our institutions, instead of teaching the foundation of life so that we have a society build on the firm foundation of love. Then we could enjoy life and help other people to enjoy life. On the contrary, we are destroying our life and others' lives by not putting ourselves in the rhythm of love, in the waves of love, in the energy currents of love.

You can solve the problems by love, and you can eliminate your diseases by love. To have love you are going to go out of your skin, your self-centered life. Right now life interests you if it is beneficial for your selfish interests. When are you going to drop this vicious circle and get out of your skin and become love? Only then will you understand what we are talking about.

Love is expansion, inclusiveness, and dissipation of ego. Ego is a wound in your soul. Ego says, "I know," "I can do it," "I am somebody." Who you are? You are not even an atom. Love is the dissipation of this ignorance. The greatest sin in the world is committed when you stand out of the circle of love. Everybody in the world is sinful, and the result of sin is death, disease. The Bible says so, but who listens to the Bible? "It is old-fashioned!"

All diseases of the bodies -- physical, emotional, mental, and etheric -- are the result of the seeds planted by our thoughts against love, by our emotions against love, by our actions against love. Because of such actions we have destroyed our immune system.

Now I am saying something that maybe twenty years later you are going to read in the papers. The immune system is a love system. When love evaporates from your system, you do not have an immune system. The immune system is disintegrating in our country and everywhere because we are forcing hatred and killing the love. Everything we are organizing is based not on love but on self-interest.

If you want to run a life on the basis of hatred, disintegration, rejection, malice, and slander, you can do that, but you will see that sickness and disease will be after you forever. It is man who brings calamity to his own life.

Health is important when that health is used for the Hierarchy

Money is important but you must in some way understand that money is not everything. Money is energy and that energy must be used to uplift humanity, to bring health, happiness, and freedom to humanity. If money is not doing that, it is your curse. Even your health can be your curse. Because you are healthy, you do obnoxious things and get AIDS, for example, and you kill yourself. Health is also important when that health is used for the Hierarchy, for your spiritual destination.

So disciples eventually are going to orient themselves in the right direction. What is right direction? I live, I eat, I think, I feel for the Glory of God. Or else, you are not living. You can use other words, but that is the direction. If your life is lived only for you, better you do not live it.
