Most of our desires are either imposed or imported

Imposed desires are the desires from television, radio, and other media, which create intense artificial desires within us. It is through such desires that we are put in motion.

Our sexual desires are mostly imposed desires. On the average we do not need as much sex as we are involved in. We do not need many objects we gather around us, but because desire is imposed upon us we obey our desires.

There are also imported desires, which are the desires of other people with which we identify ourselves. Sometimes homes, public places, and hotels are so intense with various desires that we almost identify with them, own them, and start obeying them.

Thus, control over our desires has a very healing effect upon our life. It is difficult to control the sources of desires, but it is possible to master our emotional vehicle through purification and make it sensitive only to higher objects.

Advice for pregnant women and mothers

In some parts of Asia the pregnant woman was kept away from those people who were negatively oriented, morally low, gossipy, and full of ill-will. It was believed that contact with such people might pollute the atmosphere of the growing embryo and have a bad effect on the child. A pregnant woman was kept away from loud parties, heavy work, and alcohol and kept busy with Nature, religious services, lofty literature, and music. She was given the opportunity to sleep well and to keep company only with those who were happy, healthy, and full of love and wisdom. It was believed that such a condition would help the future child greatly.

If we compare this situation with the present age, we find the reason why we have so many problems with delinquency. Today's pregnant women drive their cars every day in tension and fear. They work under manifold pressures and many kinds of irritation. They spend many hours watching television through which crime, greed, hatred, jealousy, and fear are continuously being impressed on the consciousness of the growing entity. Add to this the pollution of water, food, and air. Such an atmosphere will not be beneficial to the coming baby, and after he is born he still does not have ideal conditions. mother soon must return to work. The baby sitter will take her place, and eventually the child will be exposed to the television with all its evil influence. He will usually be left alone until the father and mother return home, and the love they will show him will not be full of energy and radiation. Under these conditions the child will not have the necessary attention, care, and companionship of his mother especially and very little from his father.

There are millions of deluded people trying to eliminate thinking

If a person studies their mind carefully, they will notice an incessant flow of thoughts. No one has ever existed who doesn't have a constant flow of thoughts. If they stopped thinking, then they would become catatonic. Who invented this theory that we should stop thinking, stop remembering, and stop planning? It has never existed in any legitimate spiritual path, either Eastern or Western. I think this new theory comes from the CIA, who also creates thousands of fake quotes from Buddha, Rumi, and Lao Tzu, and spreads them around social media. The goal, it seems, is to zombify the human race. There are millions of poor, deluded people all over the planet, trying to eliminate thinking, planning and remembering, victims of a CIA mind control zombification program.

One can experience pure consciousness without thoughts. In Hinduism its called Samadhi. But only in meditation. After one finishes meditating, then the thinking begins. Without thinking, one cannot know or do anything. Everyone has thoughts all day long. The word for a human is man, from "manas" or mind. A human is a thinker. That's what humans do.

Keep learning, thinking and planning, because without these nothing can happen. A person who is attempting to end thinking, remembering, and reflecting on the future, is a being at war with their own nature. Don't try to be a zombie. Try instead to be a vibrant, wise, benign being.

Why are Other Worlds more important than life here on earth?

Our real life begins in the Other Worlds. Why are Other Worlds more important than life here on earth? We live here for sixty, seventy, or ninety years or maybe a hundred years. But you live in the Other Worlds for three, four, or five thousand years. What are you going to do for those five thousand years, be a blind cripple? Or are you going to be like those who are always in pain and burning, then come into incarnation miserable and return to the Other Worlds in a miserable state?

Question: Is there any value to explain these concepts to skeptics?

Answer: They are blind; what are you going to show them? It is better to pray for them and leave them alone.

Most of the leaders are led by the people

The reason that life on the planet is so slow in its progress is that the leaders are chosen by the same level of people. Those who are totally involved in their personality life can hardly stand above it and try to shed light on the problems of people like themselves. Most of the leaders are led by the people – and this is the tragedy of our so-called democratic process.

Prayer creates optimism in you

Prayer creates optimism in you. At this time some people think that the world is going to be destroyed, there is a war just coming, we are going to have a famine, and people are going to starve and die. That is a pessimistic cloud that is sitting upon us. Prayer destroys such accumulations. Prayer gives you optimism because you are standing with God, and you are invoking His help. With Him everything is possible. Everything can be bright and beautiful. Suddenly things can change for the better.

The greatest medicine is Divine Help

There was a woman who came to me and said, “I have a husband who drinks so much and smokes cigars. I am sick of it. I do not know what to do.” I said, “What did you decide to do?” She said, “Well, you know what I want to do.” I said, “What did you decide to do?” She said, “Well, you know what I decided – to divorce.” “Well,” I said, “that’s an escape.” “Well,” she said, “is there any other way?” “Yes,” I said, “pray.”

She started to laugh, as if I had said the most comical thing. I said, “You don’t believe in prayer?” She said, “Prayer, are you crazy? What is prayer going to do for my drunk husband?” “Well,” I said, “you came to me to ask for an answer, for advice. That is my advice. Pray.”

For one week she prayed, and she called me and said, “It doesn’t work.” “Yes,” I said, “because you are not praying right.” One week later, she called me again and said, “He is doing worse.” I said, “That is a good sign.”

The third week she called me and said, “He is obnoxious now.” I said, “Continue,” because I am seeing that her problem is coming to a crisis, and until it comes to one hundred degrees, it is not going to boil. So put the fire a little higher so that it starts boiling.

Then one night, at midnight, she called me. She said, “Guess what? He came to my bed. He said, ‘I am not going to drink anymore. I think it is bothering you.’”

She said, “Now he is with me. I am hugging him and talking with him.” “Did you see,” I said, “you could do it.” “But” she said, “it is powerful. No medicine, no doctor, nothing helped him.” I said, “Well, the greatest medicine is Divine Help.”

In each of us there is a deceiver

The progress of a human being starts the moment when one side of yourself begins not liking the other part of yourself. You have made a cleavage. You either agree with your other part or you disagree.

For example, suddenly you begin to hate things that you are doing. You feel a duality within you. One side of you holds to higher principles. The other side holds to the side of negative emotions, thoughts, and actions. This moment, or the length of time of inner opposition, is the most critical moment in your life. It is the moment that will decide your future – your victory in life or your failure. It is in this period of time that you will do all that is possible to stand and act in the light of your Inner Guide.

In each of us there is a deceiver, but it does its job in such a way that we do not feel any difference within us. If there is no one fighting within you for your highest and interior interests, you are lost. That is what the war was about in the Bhagavad Gita. The whole intention of Krishna was to convince Arjuna to stand in Light and fight for the everlasting values of life.

Once I found out that there was a deceiver in me, I was shocked. And once I caught his tail, I never let him free to devastate my life.

When a person forces his way into the Intuitional Plane

Christ once said that those who enter the house from the windows are thieves. There are thieves who enter the Intuitional Plane through hallucinogenic drugs, alcohol, and so on. Because they are not trained, disciplined, and ready, they damage their brains and lose their logic – sometimes permanently.

When a person forces his way into the Intuitional Plane without preparation and through artificial means, he not only distorts his intuitional mechanism but he also harms his mental mechanism. When he returns to his level of focus in the personality, his consciousness functions by the impressions of the Intuitional Plane and loses the ability to handle the affairs of his personality.

This is a disturbance in equilibrium. Most mental illness and strange behaviors are related to such an experience. Sometimes it takes years of  heavy labor to anchor the consciousness again in the concrete mental plane and then cut the influence from the Intuitional Plane. This often leads the soul into gross materialism and pleasure-seeking efforts. For a long time, the evolution of such soul is delayed in the slums of material life. This is why Great Ones advise us to be very cautious and not force our nature by trying advanced meditation and religious or mystical practices or using any kind of mechanical means, such as drugs, chanting, or breathing exercises.

Rejection of a life-after

A great and well-known scientist passed away about fifty years ago. One of my Teachers arranged for us to leave our bodies and see this scientist in the etheric plane. When I saw him, he was wrapped in a dark blanket like a cocoon.  He could not go to the astral plane. We returned and studied his life. His last statement was, “There is no immortality. Man is not immortal. After this life, everything is finished.” That is denial of life-after. Ask and you shall receive. This is another law in the Universe. If you ask for death, death will be given to you. If you ask for life, life will be given to you.

That scientist is condemned with his own denial. This is how materialism is a “dead end street.” When you act against your spirituality, you make your future miserable.

Rejection of a life-after means that you really know that you are immortal; you do not deny it. But you do not want it because you are attached here. For example, I knew a very nice bishop who was sick and dying. I asked him why he was afraid to die. He replied, “I do not want to leave my properties, my friends. I just started to build something.” This is rejection. When you are rejecting while dying, whatever you are rejecting pushes you away and leaves you on the shore instead of taking you into the ocean.

A worker of the Hierarchy does not reveal anything about your past lives nor does he read your aura

A worker of the Hierarchy does not reveal anything about your past lives nor does he read your aura to show off or to gain influence or money. It is possible that a worker of the Hierarchy, on some rare occasions, reveals a part of your past life for specific instruction or to point out a defect in your aura, as a warning. The worker of the Hierarchy is mostly interested in the future expansion of your consciousness, rather than in your past.

The disciples of the world must be very careful not to listen to those charlatans who read people's auras and tell them about their past lives without having the real capacity or a reason to do it. Until one develops higher clairvoyance and passes the Initiation of Transfiguration, his readings are false, inaccurate, misleading, and mixed with millions of impressions floating in space.

A selfish, materialistic person works for things that he can never take with him

A spiritual person enjoys the fruits of his labor. The increasing wealth of a materialist only brings him and his society more pain and suffering because he tries by all means to impose his will upon others and use them for his own pleasures and purposes, thus evoking reactions from them. Such a person may create temporary success for himself, but he also creates continuous involvements and clashes with problems and with other people’s  interests.

A selfish, materialistic person works for things that he can never take with him, but a spiritual person uses matter and material success to accumulate things he can take with him on his “journey.”

Forceful expansion of consciousness and opening the chakras

Consciousness expands gradually as a result of striving, service, and meditation. Of course, it is possible to see an apparently sudden expansion of consciousness, but this seldom lasts long and may eventually exhaust itself and express itself as betrayal. Many enemies of light are those who in some way were blinded by excessive exposure to light. This is why great Teachers never look for disciples but allow karma to bring them to Their feet. They do, however, send a call and let disciples walk the lonely path, through striving and effort, that the consciousness is prepared to receive the precious Teaching.

Contemporary, forceful methods that try to expand the consciousness prematurely have created the unsafe world in which we live. The Teacher must create the right conditions and the right means to deal with the light of consciousness. Illumination of consciousness takes many ages of experience, suffering, effort, and striving.


People try to open their chakras by using various exercises before they are ready to handle the energy that would release itself if they were successful. This is a violation of consciousness. Our chakras must open and unfold as a result of our expanding consciousness and according to the degree of our consciousness. If we force ourselves to act beyond our consciousness and force our chakras to open, our chakras will become a source of unending trouble for us. It is the expanding consciousness that must open the chakras. Artificial methods to open them end in disaster.

It is good to know about the chakras and, without concentrating our minds on them, expand our consciousness through meditation, labor, and service. The unfolding petals of the chakras will directly follow the expanding consciousness.
