Guilt makes one lose energy

Guilt makes one lose energy. Of course! Then there is another thing. Guilt can increase your energy. Guilt can really leak your energy. What is the secret? Why am I feeling guilty? I try to make my guilt really an opportunity to correct myself, to adjust myself, to sublimate myself, to make myself so beautiful, so awake, so conscious that I do not fall into another occasion of guilt. Now you have increased your energy. But if you sit there and cry and say “I am guilty. I am stupid. I am always like this,” you create a very disastrous self-image and you bury yourself in that coffin you are creating for yourself.

Meditation creates heroes

Meditation creates heroes. A hero is one who thinks as a Spirit, an immortal soul, free from the limitations of the physical, emotional and mental interests and concerns. As long as one is attached to his personality interests and concerns, he cannot be a hero. Heroism is the moment of liberation from limitations. A hero does not negotiate with his lower self; he gives an order and expects obedience.

If you love someone physically, emotionally, and mentally

If you love somebody physically, but are disinterested in him emotionally and mentally, your concentration on him is poor and your relationship lasts for only a short time. If you love somebody physically and emotionally, but you are not interested in him mentally, your concentration lasts longer but without full satisfaction. If you love someone physically, emotionally, and mentally, your love –or concentration—lasts longer and brings you a greater amount of contentment. If you add your spiritual love, you build a unique flame in the object of your love that lasts for many, many lives – or even forever.

The foundation of the manifestation of the Universe is moral

The foundation of the manifestation of the Universe is moral – planned in such a way that it leads to Beauty, Goodness, Righteousness, Joy, and Freedom. Those who act against these principles weaken themselves and eventually disappear.

A leader never makes claims

A leader never makes claims. If any person on the path starts making claims, it is a sign that he is cracking under the pressure of the Teaching. This cracking takes place when the seeds of vanity exist in the secret chambers of his being. To satisfy his vanity and to attract attention, he slowly begins to declare that he is an important person. He follows the well-known path of descent, going down step by step every few years. These are the claims he makes:

1. He is an important person.
2. He has psychic powers.
3. He is a disciple.
4. He is an initiate.
5. He has contact with Masters.
6. He channels Masters.
7. He is a Master.
