Intelligence, love and willpower must be balanced with each other

Your intelligence, your love, your willpower must be balanced with each other. For example, if you have will, but do not have wisdom and do not have intelligence, you are a destructive, chaotic force. If you are intelligent but you do not have love and will, you are selfish. If you have love but not intelligence, you are a follower. That is why you are going to balance your nature, and the birds are the symbol of the balance.

You have the wing of intelligence and the wing of love-wisdom and the bird’s body and tail correspond to your willpower. You have perfect balance in action with these three.

The more you appreciate a person, the more you unfold the treasures he has to offer.

Appreciation in family relationships works miracles. A family turns into a garden of flowers when the members learn how to appreciate each other.

In most families members criticize, hurt, wound, and belittle each other. Such families do not produce good fruit. Such families do not give to humanity creative, constructive, selfless, loving people. Most criminals came from families who hated each other and saw only ugliness within each other. Appreciation is the first move toward positive and creative living.

Appreciation works also in offices. A company, also a nation, loses many contributing and creative people, loses time, energy, and money by keeping only those who are critical, aggressive, even destructive to each other. The prosperity of the officers, companies, and organizations can be secured only by increasing the numbers of those people who are appreciative of each other, who appreciate each good deed done with a good heart and with a good mind.

Admiration is the art of seeing positive values in others and objects. The modern media is directed to see the negative and broadcast the negative. This is the method that tries to destroy the admirable. It makes people be occupied with trash and develop anger, fear, and hatred.

A society degenerates if

1. Admirable things are not presented to it.
2. Admirable values are not recognized in it
3. All they see is crime, ugliness, and degeneration.

Those people who continue to criticize, belittle, try to find fault, are judgmental and disapproving sooner or later become exactly like their victim and their spiritual growth stops.

Search for people to admire.

You are equal to your criticism

Every time you are negative, every time you are criticizing to belittle someone, in your mind you are making a picture of your criticism and you are equal to your criticism and belittlement. That is why Buddha, when He saw His disciples being negative and critical, He would call them and say, “Leave the Brotherhood because you did not learn yet how to admire people.”

People are negative. Have you seen these negative people who absorb and suck all your energy around you? Even imitation must be avoided, the imitation of negativity to please other people or to make a joke about it. Even that has significance.

Can you develop that superior quality of bypassing all the limitations of other people’s personality and see their God? Then you are clairvoyant. That is clairvoyance. It is not seeing shadows and past lives and crazy things. Clairvoyance is seeing exactly the God that is living within you and everyone. Exactly from that root emerges the secret of forgiveness.

The demonisation of religion

Part of the fake new age religion is, hypocritically, the demonisation of religion. Why the big hate on religion? Mao Tse Tung and Lenin tried to stamp out religion, but only fostered brutality. Religion is an ancient, vast, rich, vital, perennial and irrepressible field of human culture, and absolutely indispensable to individual and collective progress.

Everything in culture that relates to God, transcendence, spirituality, etc. is religion. All religious teachers have advised, recommended, and instituted activities that people do together to promote their spiritual growth, except for Lao Tzu, who is probably a mythic figure. The current anti-religious notions are foolish and irrational. An effort is made to distinguish between religion and spirituality, but the two are merely two words for the same thing.

Even writing or talking with others about the self, introspection, self inquiry, meditation, etc. is a religious activity. Even meditating or contemplating spiritual ideas is part of religion. Religion includes writing and reading religious books, giving or attending religious lectures, discussing or debating spirituality, rituals, charity, religious music, building, maintaining, admiring, analyzing and visiting spiritual architecture, celebrating spiritual holidays, spiritually inspired art, going on spiritual pilgrimage, undertaking austerities or tapas, and a million other things. The Spanish Inquisition, the Christian Crusades, and the Christian inspired global colonial genocide and slavery, are not the sum total of the rich legacy of human religious traditions and practices.
