Rid yourself of "will"

People in the western hemisphere have a very wrong impression which has penetrated to their bones, and they cannot rid themselves of it. They think that man has free will. He does not. There is only one will, and that is the Will of God. Christ said many centuries ago, "Thy Will, not Mine, be done." The only way to improve life is to understand that Will and to manifest It. Rid yourself of "will" because it is the urges and drives of your body, your glamors, illusions, vanities, pride, and separatism. These are not Will, but the "will" of the elements. There is only one Will. If you want to be Christ-like, you must say, "Not my will, but Thine be done."

The only factor that changes your life is your goal

People do not realize that the only factor that changes your life is your goal. Change your goal, and all will change. Find a higher goal, and your whole life will orient itself to that higher goal. Without changing your goal, you cannot change your personality, your life, or your environment. If you have higher goals, a higher center in your being becomes active.

Like an arrow, your spirit must fly toward the target of perfection.

The voice of the heart creates heroes

There is a difference between the heart and emotional desire. You need to use clear discrimination in order to follow your heart. The direction of the heart reflects the principles of beauty, purity, unity, compassion, synthesis, and freedom. Emotional desire often imitates the voice of the heart, but if you have a musical ear, you can immediately determine which is the correct sound. Emotional urges are mostly related to the satisfaction of our senses and ego. They are separative, greedy, and selfish. The voice of the heart leads to self-denial, sacrifice, striving, labor, inclusiveness, and beauty.
Those who follow their heart are challenged to climb to great heights. Those who follow their earthbound desires and emotions will find themselves on the road to hell. The voice of the heart creates heroes; the urges of the emotions create slaves.

Knowledge will not deliver us from the evil we have created in this world

Time is wasted acquiring knowledge. Knowledge will not deliver us from the evil we have created in this world. It is more probably that knowledge will eventually destroy us if we do not expand the network of our intuition, feeling, and consciousness. Only an expanding consciousness can make the mind function properly to solve the problems of survival.

Can departed ones communicate with us?

No astral entity, if he is living, comes to the physical plane. That is absolutely forbidden. It is not astral or mental entities that we see. It can be either an astral corpse or dark forces, or even mischievous devas that play these games. They use the astral body of a dead person and come to your room to pretend they are owners of the astral body. They can enter into an astral shell and make you think a loved one appeared to you in your dream. The deva activates the recording in the astral shell and plays it back to you, and you believe your loved one is communicating with you.
A human being leaves his astral body in the astral plane and can never come to the physical plane. No dead person comes back to the physical plane. You can go to them, but they cannot come to you. It is forbidden; the veils are closed.
They do not give any messages. It is your projection, your fabrication that makes you believe they are giving messages. No entity can descend through the veils into the physical plane after death until he goes to the heaven side and comes back into physical incarnation. Departed ones will never come to you. Any messages given may be from dark forces or indifferent devas.

Is it beneficial to pray for the dead?

Prayer excites and stimulates the core of the atoms in the bodies to turn to the evolutionary path because you are giving positive energy to them. Prayer is a science; it is physics; it is chemistry. You are changing the chemistry of the people with prayer, which means you are giving positive energies to them. When you pray, you also change your own chemistry. Prayer is very beneficial for departed ones.

The reason that the world is in such a miserable condition is not because people lack Teachers

The reason that the world is in such a miserable condition is not because people lack Teachers. The reason is that there is a lack of real, true students and disciples. Teachers are available when one wants to find them.

It is interesting that, because of the lack of discipline and maturity, people are more drawn to teachers that are caught in their glamors, illusions, and vanity than to Teachers that are anxious to tear down the glamors, illusions, and vanities of people.
