Whatever problems you solve within you, you solve those problems in others

Whatever problems you solve within you, you solve those problems in others. When you solve problems within you, you automatically dissolve similar problems in others. When you dissolve your problems, these problems will be dissolved in others because there are no “others.” All others are you. If we do not understand this concept, we will have continuous problems in our personality, in our families, in groups, and nations because no one is letting go of the things with which they are attached.

Τhe New Age is the age of woman

We are told that the New Age is the age of woman. What does that mean? It means that in the New-Age woman must awaken and free herself from the slavery that man imposed on her.

Woman in the Twentieth Century thinks that she is free. People deceive her, telling her that she is free; but because psychologically, subconsciously, hypnotically man controls her life and uses her for his interest, she is not really free·

Making woman free does not mean to have her take the place of man. This is a very wrong idea which certain people are developing. Certain women say to themselves, "Men have failed, so let's take over and keep them under our feet."

We are told that the old submerged continent of Lemuria was totally controlled by men, and it destroyed itself. Atlantis was totally controlled by women, and it was destroyed. The Aryan race has been controlled by men, and it is going to be destroyed, if women do not bring balance into it.

When men dominate, we have in life all projective energies. Receptive energy is not active and destruction is prevalent. There is no true construction or creativity in the long run. When women dominate, all is receptive energy with no projective energy. Creativity only comes into being through right harmonization of these two polarities. If the polarities are not maintained, there is no existence. But when the polarities are harmonized with each other, we have stability and creativity, progress and prosperity. In the New Age, men and women will be harmonized like music and dancer. Otherwise, there will be neither music nor dancers.

Ancient civilizations were very prosperous, as we have been prosperous. But because polarity was not balanced, it created disturbances in space. The earth tried to adjust to the imbalance, causing land submergence, destruction, earthquakes, and annihilation of cultures and civilizations.

Men and women are poles of energy. Attraction and repulsion is polarity. Our earth is staying in its place in space because in some way it rejects certain objects or energies and attracts others. That polarity is keeping the earth suspended in space. That is the result of the harmonization of polarities."

You become noble when you become grateful

You become noble when you become grateful. When you turn your back on those who helped you, pulled you from the grave, from insanity, from stupidity, you are finished. You are going toward darkness.

I remember very well, a girl came who was visiting our center. She said, “I am going away for a while.” “Where?” I asked. “We have a group of people. We are going all over the world to speak about love and compassion and peace.” “That is fantastic,” I said. One day I saw that they were rehearsing. You should have seen them. They were flying, heaven and earth, preaching that we must unite all over the world. Brotherhood must come to this world. Everybody must love each other, respect each other, and so on. “Fantastic,” I said. So she went.

Six months later she suddenly appeared. “I came back.” “Wonderful,” I said. “How are mommy, daddy?’ “Mommy, daddy! Who cares about them?” “What,” I said, “then why were you going and singing about brotherhood, unity, beauty, love, compassion, and sacrifice? You are crazy. Get lost, I do not want to see your face anymore.”

Your mother, your father, no matter how obnoxious they are, they gave you birth! But you cannot tell these things to the children of radio and television and movies. They are not children of human beings, but children of movies, television, children of drugs. What are you going to tell them? Respect your father. Who is father? Who is mother? Because they do not recognize their father and mother, there is no nobility in them. There is no justice in them. They are sick because the gratitude that heals is absent from their hearts.

"The most essential”

When you start talking, watch yourself whether you are saying the most essential or you are filling space with trash. This is very important because eventually, as you are climbing the spiritual mountain and you are going toward the summit, you must be freer and freer. Our aura is full of emotions that are not needed. There are numerous worries that eat our brain. They are not needed. The Teaching advises that we must eventually get rid of everything that is not the Self. We must choose the most essential emotions, thoughts, and actions.
That is why the Teaching many times repeats the phrase, “the most essential.” The nonessentials are like weeds on your path. They do not let you progress. They hang on you. They block your mind. They build lots of karma around you, and that is why eventually we are going to work with the most essential in every aspect of our life.
We relate to each other with nonessentials and eventually we become nonessentials for each other. Nonessentials waste our energy, time, and create karma. Our civilization and culture, our economy, our self-interest force people to pump nonessentials into us because nonessentials make business, make money for them.

Initiation is not a big or mysterious word, it is not an occult word

Initiation means making efforts. You are making physical effort, emotional effort, and mental effort to surpass the conditions in which you find yourself and the level you have previously achieved. Initiation is not a big or mysterious word. It is not an occult word. It is actually a simple, psychological term that means you are working so hard that you do not stay where you are presently. All life is progressive, and you must progress continuously.

What does it mean to progress? You are going to make your body really beautiful. You are going to dress beautifully, groom your hair beautifully. You are going to make your health beautiful. This takes effort and striving so that eventually your body becomes first-rate. You can run, swim, wrestle, work hard, and your body can take it. People do not understand  what a simple thing is initiation.

-Torkom Saraydarian
Initiation, p.107

Expand your consciousness

Our mind is occupied with our shoes, with our clothes, with our sex, with our food, with our money in the bank. That is where we are. From that we cannot look up and expand our consciousness. That is why every trouble in the world is because our mind is not a balanced mind.

Sometimes we have one minute to meditate, to pray, but even when we meditate we say, “God, give us another one hundred dollars. Give us a girlfriend, boyfriend. Please help me not to die.” It is all turning around the axis of our self-interest. But sometimes we meditate in the garden and suddenly a light comes into our mind, into our consciousness that this world is not just what we are seeing. There are different dimensions.

If you are smart enough you must find that thread and penetrate into it and find the mysteries, one by one, into the Universe and expand your consciousness – because when you pass away They [the Great Ones] are not going to ask how much money you left. They are going to ask, “What are you in your essence? Are you a cheating, deceiving human being, or are you a noble, spiritual being?

Eyesight is related to your past karma and to your mental and emotional consciousness

Eyesight is related to your past karma and to your mental and emotional consciousness. We could put some letters or symbols here on the wall and bring in a man who is really happy, righteous, and full of forgiveness. He will be able to read the letters and see the symbols clearly. But if you make that person angry, hateful, and jealous, he would not even be able to read the symbols. The eye cells are related to your spiritual advancement. Whenever your consciousness is not clear and your mind and emotions are upset, your vision weakens considerably. On the contrary, when you are joyful or happy, your sight stays clear.

Human beings provide food for the devas

Human beings provide food for the devas. Their food is our visualizations, our aspirations, our dreams, great ideas, and creative thoughts. If you have clairvoyance, you can see that a yogi who sits and meditates has hundreds of “humming birds” taking the “nectar” radiating from him. If you are not doing meditation or higher thinking, you are not giving food to the devas. You are not creating a link with them. They are not inspiring you, so you are cut from them. Because you are cut from them, you do not have balance in your life. You are following the tendencies of the lower kingdom from which you graduated. For example, we say, “Do not hate, do not slander, do not criticize and gossip, do not use malice,” because when the devas come they are poisoned by these negative elements if you radiate them. If you poison them, they do not heal or inspire you, and you fall into sickness and degeneration.

Intellectual block

Some scientists developed the concrete mind in such a degree that they cut the abstract mind and they cannot go higher. This is the greatest disaster for a human being that he cannot for lives break the concrete wall and enter into abstraction.

Some human races have that block, that intellectual block. They are very smart for money, politics, but there is no abstraction. If you say, “God exists, beauty exists,” they say, “what are you talking about? Money exists. Are you crazy? Only money exists. Only power exists. That is all that exists.” They are blocked with their concrete thinking.

"I came to make the Teaching practical for another five hundred years" - Torkom Saraydarian

Excerpt from the book "Autobiography: Torkom Saraydarian"

I am an accomplished composer and play seven musical instruments. My music has a unique quality of depth.

I am very confident that my Teaching will spread all over the world, and numberless groups will be formed to propagate it in many languages. My Teaching unites all that is highest in all Teachings, and eventually a path of unity will be established among many Teachings.

I came to make the Teaching practical for another five hundred years. When the earth fully enters into Aquarius, I will come again to serve the Great Ones, anchoring Their Teaching into the ocean floor of the masses.

My Teaching will have its main temple, from which it will spread all over the world. Great disciples will organize the Teaching in many ways to further penetrate into the consciousness of the masses.

I will be with this humanity for a long time, because I know the woes of humanity.

I served humanity in the capacity of king, soldier, statesman, teacher, priest, physician, artist, banker, and messenger. In all departments of human endeavor, I did my best.

My duty is related to the masses of people. I understand their psychology, the cause of their suffering, the ways by which they can change their suffering into joy. I can lead them to the future.

I work in this capacity as a servant of Great Ones.

My sufferings and limitations all are the result of my certain personality failures on the path of my dedicated service. They are necessary to keep me on the right track.

All my relations with people are based on a resolution to help them, to uplift them, and to guide them toward Home.

My Teaching is yet under the mist of the morning. The day will come soon when the veil will disappear and with all its beauty my Teaching will shine.

The glory of my Teaching will go to my Teachers. It is They Who conceived me in the womb of Their consciousness.

With all my sincerity and honesty I consider myself only Their servant, Their soldier who will carry again the flag of victory in the valleys, hills, and mountains.

Intuition is comprehension of oneness

Intuition is comprehension of oneness. Intuition is not having a hint. Intuition is not having a sensitivity of what will happen in the future. That is not intuition. Popular lecturers say that intuition is when you feel that you are going to do something tomorrow. That is not intuition. Intuition is an overall sense of oneness that starts from the Spiritual Triad.
