Happiness, Joy & Bliss

In happiness, it is the physical and emotional elementals that feel complete. When a person's consciousness enters the analytical mind, he loses the sense of a feeling of completeness because he begins to see how much there is yet to satisfy his urges, drives, and desires. He then loses a part of his happiness.

Joy begins when a person's consciousness penetrates into the higher mind. The higher mind sees things in holistic concepts and gradually impresses the physical and astral bodies with the feeling of completeness -- because every bit, every experience of happiness, every want or desire already exists within them. They can enjoy all the happiness of the world by eating one apple, or all the happiness of joy of sex and friendship with one partner. Thus, the higher mind not only restores happiness to the lower bodies but also makes a person realize joy.

The state of bliss develops slowly when the consciousness makes a breakthrough into the Intuitional Plane, where feelings of completeness begin in all-inclusiveness. The flow of bliss continually feeds a person's joy and happiness, supplying him with psychic energy.

When you trust someone, you put a magnetic light in his soul

When we trust someone, we create a future striving in them. Actually, we ruin each other by not having faith, confidence and trust in each other. This is a psychological secret. Families ruin each other when they say to each other, “I do not have faith in you.”

When you do not trust someone, you kill the blooming flower in him. But when you trust him, you put a magnetic light in his soul. That magnetic light will never die but always increase. This is the secret of the Great Ones.

The Ageless Wisdom never encourages people to discover or to be occupied with their past lives

The Ageless Wisdom never encourages people to discover or to be occupied with their past lives, but rather it encourages them to look to future possibilities and strive toward a glorious future.

The reason for this is that what we think as of our past lives are mostly

1. Fabrications of our desires, wishes and dreams
2. Dramatizations of our thoughtforms.
3. The mixture of events reflected in our astral mirror.
4. Subconscious discharges
5. Identification with thoughtforms created by masses.

Two ways of doing business

There are two ways of doing business. One is to earn money to live a comfortable life and forget about other human beings with their sufferings. The other way is to use your business as a means of performing true service for everybody. That way you will have money and, at the same time, help others. Money cannot give deep gratification to your soul until you use it to help others.

Losing objects

People continuously lose objects, misplace objects, and then spend so much time finding those objects. This not only wastes their time and energy but also causes irritation and many other inconveniences.

The time we lose searching for objects can be used for creative labor. Moreover, searching for objects creates a tension on our brain cells and our nervous system, and it gives us continuous irritation when we cannot locate the lost objects.

Whenever you are engaged in placing something somewhere, never do it in a state of absentmindedness. Be conscious in your actions. If you consciously put something somewhere, you will never forget it. Most of the time, seventy-five percent of our mind is “not there.” That is why we do not know where we put the things we are looking for.
