Thinking produces certain chemical elements in the body

Average people are not ready to understand that thinking produces certain chemical elements in the body. People eat and assimilate food, and thus apply the chemical elements needed for their bodies. On a different level, thinking produces elements in the mental sphere.

If the mental or emotional actions do not provide certain elements to the aura, then the body does not assimilate the same elements from the food or vitamins it takes in. Thus, for example, when iron is lacking in the aura, the body will not assimilate iron from food, and if it is introduced in the body artificially through pills or injections, the body will either discharge it or it will create disturbances.

There are emotions which consume certain elements from the body. There are emotions which produce the same elements. This is also true for thoughts. Through certain ways of thinking, one accumulates, say, potassium. Through other ways of thinking, potassium is consumed and depleted from the body.

The chemistry of the bodies of average humanity is produced in the etheric-astral centers. In advanced human beings, it is mainly produced in the mental centers and in the layers of consciousness.

There is no scientific instrument to prove such a theory as yet, but through observation and experience one may notice that certain changes in consciousness cause changes in the chemical elements of the body.

In the future, these observations and experiences will be scientifically documented, but for the present the cure for the deficiency of an element in the body can be met by expanding the consciousness, developing lofty and creative thinking, and filling the heart with loving and positive emotions. As our consciousness expands, it will naturally provide all the elements we need for the body.

Uneven development or fluctuation between light and darkness has negative effects upon the chemistry of the body. The body is like a harp. The harp must be in tune so that one produces music. The same is true with the body. When the thoughts are lofty and in tune, they create the needed chemistry to make the body healthy and creative.

What is the cause of inertia?

What is the cause of inertia?

When you are not laboring, when you do not have that urge to labor, to run, to jump and dance, to be moving, it means that you created in the past such conditions in which your fuses burned and they do not transmit pranic energy anymore. You are going to work very hard to repair the electronic tubes in your body so that you start taking in energy.

The obstacles for the energy can be different things. For example, a wrong physical action creates obstacles to receiving prana. A wrong emotion, negative emotions, can cause another fuse to blow out. A plan that is based on separatism, destruction, hatred, vanity, or ego can blow other tubes in your brain. When these tubes are blown-out, you cannot receive prana from the earth and from the sun, and you fall into depression, inertia, and apathy.

All is energy. Energy is there, but the receiver is not there. What you did through your physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual wrong actions, you condemned yourself in such a way that you cannot now receive energy and put your machine into action. How to repair it? That is labor itself.

Until humanity learns how to use time, it will not have free time

The Tibetan Master writes that people will eventually work a three-day week. Humanity will dedicate the other four days to creative thinking and actions. But until that day comes, people must learn the value of time. For example, if certain people have more leisure time, they will destroy themselves. But when the consciousness of humanity is elevated, it will use its non-working time for spiritual progress.

For example, if you have a day of leisure, what will you do with that day? Will you sit and meditate, or do creative painting or other art work? Will you be helping and sacrificing yourself for others, or will you be running after your pleasures, or trying to fulfill your destructive plans for others? Until humanity learns how to use time, it will not have free time.

Joy and healing

Once a man whose right hand was paralyzed came to our monastery. The Teacher asked him what he used to do with his right hand. After pausing for a few moments, he said, " I used my right hand to slaughter bulls and sheep for many years".
"How many did you slaughter"? asked the Teacher?

I did not hear the rest of the conversation because suddenly the dinner bell rang. Later I asked the Teacher how slaughtering animals could paralyze someone's arm. He said, "Every time that man felt the pain and suffering of the animals, the life-giving energy decreased in the arms, and it eventually disappeared. Lack of joy causes paralysis.

In such a sophisticated age, people may laugh at this statement and consider this a superstition. But my Teacher healed that man's paralysis in six months by daily for four hours making him exercise joy. Once I copied one of the exercises:

"Visualize your right arm,and with it pull a drowning man from a river....Write a joyful letter with it.....Give money and jewels to the poor with it.....Serve food for hundreds of people with it....."
This man used to sit like a statue and follow the Exercises given by my Teacher for four hours daily.At the end of four months, he used that hand to give water to a mountain deer which was visiting our garden.

You must not confuse sensitivity with sentimentality

We say that someone who is easily wounded or offended is sensitive. No, true sensitivity means being completely open to the beauty and light of the divine world and closed to all the ugliness and absurdity of the human world.

So, what is generally called sensitivity, that is, our ability to feel upset by indifference, scorn, criticism and humiliation, is in fact only susceptibility, sentimentality. Oh these poor unhappy souls, for whom heaven, angels, friends or beauty do not exist, but only unfair, malicious, ill-intentioned people!

You must not confuse sensitivity with sentimentality. Sentimentality is the unhealthy expression of a poor, mean, narrow, neurotic ego. Sensitivity, on the other hand, is a higher degree of evolution, which brings humans into contact with the heavenly regions and enables them to resonate with all the beauty of the universe.

Masculine nature - Feminine nature

The masculine nature wants to dominate; the feminine nature wants to encompass and be inclusive.

The masculine nature works with matter and mind; the feminine nature works with emotions and intuition.

The masculine nature works with will power; the feminine nature works with the power of love.

The masculine nature is the path; the feminine nature is the field.

The masculine nature demands; the feminine nature gives.

The masculine nature asks questions and finds answers; the feminine nature feels and intuitively learns.

The masculine nature divides and separates; the feminine nature synthesizes.

The man and the woman are just like two feet on the path of evolution: each has its own ups and downs, and each either leads or follows.

An uneducated or undisciplined teenager will use his time for self-destructive actions

There is an opinion that teenagers must enjoy life, being free from every kind of labor, duty, or responsibility. But it is this attitude that leads them into various troubles in their teens and in the future.

In certain countries in Asia, teenagers are part of the team of labor of the family. They must join in the daily labor of their parents, not expecting rewards but as a part of their life. Every day they must have a duty, a responsibility, and a labor to be carried out. Such a procedure has a very beneficial effect on the life of the teenagers.

The more the teenager is devoted to a constructive labor, the less he will be a problem to the family or to society.

An uneducated or undisciplined teenager will use his time for self-destructive actions and ruin his own future or watch television all day, sleep, and imagine sexual fantasies.
