Mechanical activity wears out the etheric body

Our lower bodies are very eager to be mechanical. They like to take over any activity and run it without the conscious participation of the subject. Conscious activity must be our daily goal. Whatever we do, we must be conscious of it.
Mechanicalness uses the etheric body without charging it with psychic energy. Such a mechanical activity wears out the etheric body, and you feel exhausted. This is why in every conscious action you gain energy. Whenever you are “spaced out,” you lose energy.

We all think that we are immortals...

We all think that we are immortals. We are not. Immortals are those beings that created continuity of consciousness and became living souls. If you do not build a living soul within you, immediately when you die, you are dissipated, you are finished, you are gone. Then how do you incarnate?
You do not incarnate. Your acts, your emotions, your thoughts, echo into the Universe and come back and form the same personality that you had. That is what is called, in Indian and Tibetan wisdom, “scandas”. It is the scandas that build what you are now, and you do not have any continuity of consciousness with the past, neither with the future.
Immediately when the sun within you is risen, you have continuity of consciousness and you are immortal. Do you remember your past lives? You don’t. Then you are dead. Do you know where you are going to go? You don’t. That is why Christmas is such a serious moment in which we are going to realize, “What am I doing here? What have I done for sixty, seventy, eighty years?’ What did you do? You ate. You enjoyed. That is all. You hated, you were angry, you robbed people, you deceived, this or that. That is what we did. How can we overcome that? We can become a new human being.

A whole nation can lose its consciousness when people introduce low-level standards into it

A whole nation can lose its consciousness when people introduce low-level standards into it.

The leaders of the future will be very careful that moral, religious, political, educational, and cultural standards do not fall to lower levels from the efforts of people who do not have standards or who have low standards. Such a fall will lower the consciousness of nations and prepare the way for many problems and difficulties.

Woman in the ancient world was worshiped

Woman in the ancient world was worshiped. She was not an advertisement in pornographic magazines. She was not a symbol of sex, of lust. She was a symbol of beauty, purity, and fragrance. Se when people think about woman, they must not think about sex, body, or legs. They must think, first, that this woman has a special, divine, or universal quality in her spirit that causes flowering.

In the ancient times they understood that the woman is so important and that when woman degenerates in any civilization, that civilization ends. That is why we say, “The homes are built or destroyed by mothers.” It is very powerful!

Don’t forget. A great woman can give birth to a great child. The father is okay. The father is beautiful, but the child is not nine months in the father. In that nine months it is so secret. In that nine months you are not just building the muscles and bones. That is what people normally think, but you are building the emotional mechanism there, secret mechanisms, the mental mechanism, the motives, the future, the visions, dreams, aspirations, the spiritual insight and foresight. You are building all these in your body, and if you don’t have all these things, what are you going to give to your baby? Are you giving freeways, accidents, hurts, irritations, jobs, and on and on? What are you going to give to that baby who is given to you as a gift?

Your babies are your gifts, your holy gifts. They are a part of God. They are a gift coming to you. How must you accept that gift, and how worthy must you be for that gift so that the gift is really great!

Gracefulness is so important. When I see girls acting like cowboys, like men, it is the reverse of their nature. Girls must spread grace, harmony, music, dance. When they walk into a party, there are so different. It’s so beautiful to see the woman in her gracefulness, with her dress, hair, and manners.

Yesterday I was in a restaurant. A girl was cursing her husband in such a manner even a boy couldn’t do that. That shouldn’t be the nature of woman. We are going to worship them because men need to worship!

If you don’t have someone you can love and worship, you are lost! And man does not admit that. Go into your heart and really examine. When you worship that woman, she uplifts you. If you don’t love that woman or if you humiliate that woman and make her dirty, you lose yourself! I’m not giving you religion, psychology, physics, or chemistry. This is life! Pure life! You should have somebody to worship, and you must expect your women to be worthy of worship. Make yourself a worshiper of beauty. That is so beautiful!

When knowledge increases but the consciousness stays the same, the man enters into the zone of self-destruction

People often think that the accumulation of knowledge is equal to the expansion of consciousness. This is not true. One can be a highly equipped scientist but have a very small consciousness, if his heart is not in harmony with the use of his knowledge and if his knowledge does not bring blessings for humanity. Accumulation of knowledge is just like the accumulation of jewels or any other articles. The accumulation of such objects does not mean that the person is growing in his consciousness.

When knowledge increases but the consciousness stays the same, the man enters into the zone of self-destruction. Nothing good comes from a man of limited consciousness, even if he carries loads of information.

Inclusiveness, in the esoteric understanding, is acceptance of the true values and achievements of other people, but it is also refusal to identify with their evil intentions, separatism, ego and destructive behavior. When you are inclusive, you sense that you are one with all souls, but you do not participate in their ignorance and crimes.

Inclusiveness does not mean to throw yourself into the mouth of a lion, or to surrender yourself to evil. Inclusiveness exists only on the level of Beauty, Goodness, Righteousness, Joy, Freedom, and other high principles. You cannot be inclusive with crime, syphilis, and other diseases, but you can love and feel one with those who suffer. One is not inclusive by opening himself to germs, while in the meantime taking vitamins. One cannot include an instrument that is not tuned with instruments that are in tune. One should not include in himself things that are mathematically wrong with things that are mathematically right.

Inclusiveness is the ability to see values and not reject them, but make them a part of the Inner Treasury. Inclusiveness does not mean to leave your husband to sleep with many other men. Inclusiveness does not mean to collect flowers and mix them with poison oak.

Inclusiveness means to have a sense of unity without yielding yourself to the weaknesses of others, or leaving yourself open to many kinds of exploitation.

Inclusiveness means to have a very high-level of discriminative power that enables you to find values and precious stones and put them to the right use in projects.

If a person does not believe in eternal life, he will not have an afterlife

If a person does not believe in eternal life, if he totally ignores it and says there is no afterlife, he will not have an afterlife. When he dies, he will remain in a totally unconscious state until two thousand years later he again incarnates. If you think that you are going to have an afterlife, you will have one. If you do not, you are in a terrible condition.

It is mostly people who do not believe in afterlife that create problems in our world. Eventually they go through so much trouble that they crack.
