That is your Christ within that is going to call you, to make you a lion

There was a lioness and this lioness was pregnant. When the time arrived, she did not have any place to have that baby except in a flock of sheep. She went there, had her baby, and ran away. The shepherd came. He said, “What a beautiful cub! This is fantastic.” And because the lion cub lived a few years with the sheep, he started to eat like a sheep, cry like a sheep, jump like a sheep. He imitated and he identified with the sheep, and he became a sheep. The shepherd was so happy that he had some kind of different sheep that was bigger and fierce, and the sheep began to play with him. Three years later, one day when the shepherd was playing his flute, suddenly he heard the roar of a lioness. Immediately this little cub raised his ears, looked around, and like an arrow he went to the mountain. He ran to his mother, and from that day on the sheep missed him.

Why did he go? This is the secret. He heard the call. Once you hear the call of your Teacher, of your Master, or that heavenly One that calls you and says, “Hey, come up to the mountain,” you go. That is your Christ within that is going to call you, to make you a lion instead of a sheep.

Why do our bad actions affect us?

Bad actions work against natural laws. Suppose I have a knife in my hand and I put that knife into somebody. In actual etheric vision, I have put that knife in my own etheric body because I was identified with him or her in the same moment of the crime. The wound I gave is already in my subtle bodies. It takes time to come down and manifest in the dense body. First it comes to the mental level and you become a little “wishy-washy.” Then it comes to the emotional level and you become negative. Then it comes to the body, the place exactly where the knife hit, and your problems start. Whatever you sow, you reap.

How does karma form a cloud?

"Question: How does karma form a cloud?

Answer: A cloud is formed by your wrong actions, negative emotions, or polluted thinking. Every time your bodies are forced to do something against the Law of Nature and against the laws of your conscience, they emanate a gas, an element, which accumulates in the body which took the wrong actions. Their accumulation are the seeds of future sicknesses.

There is also karma which is created through non-action. That is the other part of it. For example, you were supposed to do something, and you did not do it. That is a form of karma. You were supposed to say something now, and you did not because of your fear, because of your hesitation. It formed karma because you did not do it. You planned something beautiful, and you did not do it when you could do it. That is also karma. For example, say that a man is dying, and you are just passing by. You could have made a sandwich and fed the man. You did not do it. Your heart told you to do it. You did not do it. It is bad karma in your aura. Not only what you do makes karma or non-karma but also what you do not do, what you do not think, what you do not say created a karma.

Sooner or later, people must learn to stand on their own feet

Once I asked my Father in great anxiety, “When you die, to whom am I going to ask questions?’

“First of all,” he said, “do not worry. I will be with you for a long time. But in case I am gone, ask your questions to Christ... and wait for the answers...”

“Where is He?”

“Never mind where He is. Your questions will reach Him almost instantaneously. But you must try to be sensitive to His answers and, when you grasp them, put them into action. After you learn to communicate with Him, He will teach you how to ask questions to your Soul and develop companionship with your Soul. Sooner or later, people must learn to stand on their own feet in order to be worthy of higher achievements.”

Geographical changes

The earth has its various movements that are natural consequences of various energies and fires playing upon it. But in these movements, there are “unnatural ones” that are the result of human wrong doing, negative emotions and destructive thinking. Accumulations of such thinking, feeling, and acting cause unnatural movement in the earth’s natural movements. These unnatural movements are what cause natural calamities.
Geographical changes were always natural for the earth. The Soul of the earth gives enough warnings to enable animals, human beings, even plants to migrate to safe places during natural changes. Such warnings are not given by Nature if humanity is the cause of the natural calamities. This is why people say that man either destroys himself or leads himself onto the path of survival.

Faith in others

Having faith in others calls forth their innate divinity into manifestation. This happens gradually and slowly, but as your faith increases in others, they begin to respond to your faith more deeply.
It is possible that they may first try to take advantage of your faith and think and act with self-interest, even sometimes to a degree that exploits you, but be patient and stay in your faith so that gradually you cleanse them of all wrong motivations and evoke their true spirit to manifest.
Of course, you can show them their failures and selfish conduct, but always make them feel that you have faith in their future success and cooperation. Such a faith is called the invincible conqueror because it slowly destroys a crystallization within them and opens a path for the spiritual light to pour out, washing all that is selfish and ugly.

In the act of abortion, you destroy the physical body and the baby lives in the etheric plane as a “spook”

In the act of abortion, you destroy the physical body and the baby lives in the etheric plane as a “spook” with an astral and mental body. Sometimes you even destroy his etheric body and delay his evolution for a long time until his astrological sign coincides with his urge to build an etheric body. Sometimes his astral and mental bodies disintegrate as a chain reaction to the destruction of his etheric body.

Psychic energy increases as it is used to help others

Once I remember my Teacher interviewing a businessman. He asked, “All that you have done in your life was to provide a happy life for yourself. How much did you think about the happiness of others?”
The man looked at him with a pitiful smile and said, “Why should I worry about the happiness of others?”
The Teacher, putting his hand on the shoulder of the man said, “Our only happiness is conditioned by the happiness of others – may God be with you,” and he left the room.
Later I asked my Teacher why he did not talk longer to convince the man about what he said. The Teacher replied, “Those who use psychic energy only for their own benefit eventually become stupid. Why hammer a nail that is crooked.”
Psychic energy increases as it is used more and more to help others.

When you are expressing emotions, be there

When you are expressing emotions, be there. “I love you!” “I love you...” How stupid it is to say this with insincerity. “You know, you look beautiful.” No, be sincere and say, “You are so beautiful!” Look what this will do.

When you mean it, he or she feels the contact of your energy and suddenly identifies with the beautiful expressions you have given. He says, “You are really beautiful. I really believe it.” What is happening is that the woman feels she is so beautiful. You heal her. You destroy many, many accumulated, false suggestions in her mind that she is ugly, that she is square, that she is fat, that she is lean, and so on. You clean them with one minute of concentration, when you are there in your words and expressions and you mean it.

Electrical fields affect our thinking, memory and visualization

There is an electrical station which at times I must drive by and which radiates about a fifty-foot electrical field. I always hated passing by it, but I did not know why. So once I walked through the area, and tested whether or not I could visualize. It was impossible. When I entered the electrical field, it distorted my ability to visualize. Then I understood what happened to the pigeons that were once used in this area as a test. They were trying to use pigeons and doves to fly messages to another state. When the birds flew through the electrical field, they did not know where they were going. They circled the area for a half-hour, and eventually came back. They have forgotten their destination.

Electrical wires around and in our homes are really dangerous, but we are not seeing this yet. A few researchers are beginning to explore this area and write about the subject.

Visualization takes form from the substance of the etheric body. When an electrical frequency interferes, it erases or dislocates the particles that are forming through the visualization. Electrical fields also affect our thinking and memory.

Distortion of the etheric body

A physician once complained to me that if he talked too much to his patients during the day, he felt exhausted. He wondered what he could do about it and if it was a result of his own congestion. I told him that any time a person makes a stupid joke, lies, exaggerates, belittles, insults, shouts, or gets angry or emotional, he distorts the network of the etheric body; and the energy does not circulate.

Prove in your life that there is a balance between what you know and what you are

You read a few books on philosophy and perhaps go to some universities and churches... and eventually you come to the conclusion that you are a philosopher, a scientist, or a holy person. But in your daily life, you prove that you are failing to understand your fellow human beings, you are failing to organize your life in a logical way, and you are failing to live according to the high principles and true religion put in you. At the time of your prayers, you contact God, and in your daily relationships you cooperate with Satan...

Prove in your life that there is a balance between what you know and what you are.

How did we create our enemies?

Friendship is the discovery of a past pleasant association. Animosity is a painful magnet pulling you into the race that you hate. You must be there to see why they were acting the way they were acting, and understand them. Only such wisdom will eventually annihilate racial discrimination or even destruction, and will bring world peace.

Our enemies were those people in the past whom we abused, misused, suppressed, and exploited. Through such countless actions we created enemies and, after creating our enemies, we gave the right to ourselves to fight against them and to destroy them. But the law is that enemies cannot be destroyed if we created them because they are within us rather than outside of us. We can reverse this by giving back all that we took from them, such as time, energy, matter, life, pleasures, money, dignity, and so on. Unless we pay back the enemy inside of us, we will not forgive ourselves but continually will make our life a hell.

Of course Cosmic Evil was also created, but we are not referring to that. We are referring to those people who became our enemies because of our mistreatment. Any created enemy can also turn into a channel of Cosmic Evil.

God never created evil, but humans did by working against the Law of Compassion and Unity. We made dark forces exist when we denied the divinity in them and exploited them for millions of years because of a superiority of intellect. Enemies are the result of our actions that created karma.

Karma must be exhausted. This exhaustion of karma goes through various steps that change our relationships. First, our relationship with each other is for self-interest. Then our relationship with each other is for mutual interest. Lastly, our relationship with each other is for the interest of ALL. At this point, karma vanishes.

Intelligence depends on the state of the organs

Intelligence in human beings depends on the state of their various organs: the liver, the stomach, the intestines, and so on. If all the cells in the body are not working properly, the ability to think and to judge will be affected: no matter how much they read and study, their malfunctioning organs will cast dark colours and distortions into all their thoughts.

Even those who are considered great thinkers or great philosophers have made many errors due to the defective condition of the cells of certain organs hindering their mental activity! The inadequate functioning of the liver, stomach, intestines, pancreas and so on creates obstructions somewhere in the brain that even a very intelligent person cannot overcome.

So how do we reduce these obstructions? By doing exercises. And the exercises recommended by a spiritual teaching, even if they only relate to breathing and nutrition, have no other purpose than to improve the state of our cells and therefore expand and improve our understanding.

Build a new image of yourself

You can build a new image of yourself by visualizing yourself as beautiful as you can imagine. I remember a psychiatrist saying to me, “I came to say good-bye. I am going to the other world.”
“Oh, are you going to commit suicide?”
“Yes,” he replied.
“What is your reason?” I asked.
“For fifty years I have been in this profession. People’s pain, suffering, and problems are embedded in my head. Suddenly I saw that I am one of them – a rotten person. Can you imagine, for fifty years I have been earning one hundred dollars an hour and I have never helped these people.”
“Oh, that is fantastic. You have learned many things. Close your eyes.”
“Are you going to hypnotize me?” he asked. “Absolutely not!” I said. He closed his eyes.

I said to him, “Imagine that you are very happy, sitting in a meadow. There are beautiful flowers everywhere. Then imagine that you have found a beautiful woman. The two of you are dancing and singing.”

I was slowly changing his image of himself. Later I changed him into a man who saved two or three people from drowning in a river. His face showed that he was jumping into the river and pulling them ashore. Eventually I had him save a nation and bring humanity into peace. He became greater and greater.

“You rascal,” he said to me, “now I don’t want to die.”
“What are you going to do?” I asked.
“I don’t have much time left, so I must start working for these great visions.” He is now so happy.

There are millions of people who like to suffer

There are millions of people who are built in such a way that they like to suffer. These are some reasons for it:

- They are born and live in suffering.
- They are taught and ruled by suffering.
- They feel secure in suffering.

They do not want to be beautiful, healthy, and successful because these things end their suffering.

We must remember that pain and suffering may teach us great lessons, but also may lead us into a negative psychology. As people grow on the path, pain and suffering, instead of helping them to advance, cause them to retrograde.

Intellect and intuition

One of my Teachers used to say that intellect in comparison with intuition is a donkey in relation to an airplane. He also used to say that true willpower in comparison with intuition is a sun in relation to the ocean.

Buddhism in most cases is stuck with intellect, reason, and logic. Christianity in most cases uses aspiration, faith, and worship. Both are useful if the user is a Buddha, or one who functions in the Intuitional Plane.

The missing link in these two religions or religious philosophies is the lack of the Teaching of the Self – which was provided in the Upanishads. When the awareness of the Self is actualized, we will see a great process of unification in the field of philosophy, science, and religion.

Pleasure dulls the discriminative faculty of mind

Discrimination is the state of alertness of mind. If the mind is aberrated it loses its discriminative faculty. Pleasure dulls the discriminative faculty of mind, and illusion side-tracks it and leads in the wrong direction.

Discrimination is not only the path leading man through the jungle of life, but it is the path also to the Other Worlds.
