Ego always blames others

Ego always blames others. When you are egoless and without vanity, you just see the wrongs you are doing. You see that you are not loved, not successful. You see that you do not have money, influence, magnetism, and so on. If you say that it is caused by the actions of others, you will never discover the real reason. But when you find the reason, or the cause that is within you, you will have found the true answers to your problems. This is how you are going to go through life, not with self-deception.

You must not flatter each other

Ego is built through flattery. Do not praise and flatter each other. In monasteries this is totally forbidden. Of course you can challenge people by saying, for example, "You have many potentials. You can try to do better." This is better than flattering and bribing others to be something for which they have no preparation and no past karma to produce certain results for themselves.

This is very prevalent in our homes. For example, they say, "My son, you are going to be a hero in the future." "You are going to be a great lawyer." "You are so beautiful." "You are better than other boys." "You are chosen by God." Why are you chosen? What happens to these children? They puff up and become swollen headed with a very big ego. They can become the most destructive human beings, if anyone works against their ego. I have seen many, many such people.

You must not flatter or bribe each other. You must not say things that you do not know anything about. The spiritual path is to stay in reality and factuality, and never flatter others. Flattery is a form of expectation from the flatterer. Whenever you flatter people, you are expecting something from them. Flattery is selfish and manipulative.

Q: Are flattery and acknowledgment the same thing?

A: No. In true acknowledgment and recognition, you are recognizing a person's efforts, not the results of their efforts. For example, "You made so many genuine efforts to produce this painting. But I think that you can strive to do even greater work." In this way, you leave the door open for that person's progress.

Q: What if someone suffers from low self-esteem and they need encouragement?

A: I am not saying that you should not encourage people. But you must encourage people without flattery and pumping them our of their limits of actualizing their potentials. Encouragement is a scientific process. We must not encourage people our of their limits.

What are the contents of the subconscious mind?

What are the contents of the subconscious mind?

-All records of past pain, suffering, failure, and misdeeds of the person
-All thoughtforms of fear, hatred, jealousy, revenge, dishonesty, and exploitation
-All recordings of disastrous events, such as death, earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, fires, genocide, murder, loss, and so on
-All recordings of sinful actions and encapsulated tensions of blind urges and drives
-All recordings of denial, disrespect, and slander that a person experienced in the past
-All slanderous actions toward the Teaching: prejudices, fanaticism, and ingratitude
-All slanderous thoughts, feelings, and actions against one's own essential divinity

These seven categories basically describe the contents of the subconscious storage. The subconscious storage carries many, many recordings of the past one hundred to one thousand lives.

Most insanity in the world is caused by the flood of the subconscious mind utilized intelligently by dark forces.

The subconscious storage remains in the mind for a long time and becomes the main source of a person's suffering, pain, failure, and ill health.

Psychological and psychiatric treatment is a feeble effort to release and handle the subconscious flood safely.

Churches use the methods of confession, repentance, and renunciation. But the safest method to clean up the subconscious storage is through scientific meditation -- a meditation that is regular and continuous.

As a person cleans out the trash from the subconscious mind the following happen:

-His health improves
-His emotions become positive and happy
-His imagination comes under his control
-He has clarity of thinking
-He develops stability in his labor to achieve his goal
-Mental confusion disappears
-Creativity and joy steadily increase in his life

Thus, scientific meditation actually helps a person discover and liberate himself in practical ways. He enjoys life more abundantly, as well as helping him reconstruct or even recreate a new person - a person of efficiency, creativity, leadership, stability, and beauty.

Try to be conscious in whatever you are doing

The first method for Self-actualization is to do whatever you are doing consciously. Do not ever do anything in a "sleep-state", or with non-attention. Do everything consciously. For example, "I am sitting consciously. I have a key in my pocket. I leave the key on the table. Ten days later I will know where the key is.

Try to do all of your actions consciously. Once I asked a girl why she was frequently jerking her shoulder. She did not know. These are unconscious actions.

Whatever you are doing, do it consciously with all of your heart, mind, and love. If you are writing a letter, write it consciously. Walk consciously, sit consciously, speak consciously. Consciously put your body in the right place at the right time and then sleep. If you consciously sleep, after you enter sleep you are conscious. Have you had that experience?

Try to perform all actions consciously. Observe yourself. Daily be conscious of how you are walking. Once I asked a man, "Why are you walking like an elephant?" He replied, "I walk nicely." He did not realize that he was not walking correctly.

Start being aware of how you are walking, how you are sitting, how you are eating. This is very important. Observe how you are washing the laundry, how you are ironing, or how you cut your finger when you were chopping potatoes. Your finger went under the knife because you were not conscious.

Try to be conscious in whatever you are doing. When you exercise this technique, many aspects of your life will change. You will be conscious and Self-actualized in the physical plane.

Someday we will live only by the sun's radiation

If we survive on this planet and the Great Ones begin arriving, we will live only by the sun's radiation, just as certain computers are now powered solely by solar energy. The human body is the best assimilator of light if it is purified. Someday we will eat our lunch by going out into the sunlight, doing a few special exercises and then inhaling solar energy. That energy will be converted into a form that will nourish and fuel the body. We will not need food as we know it today. This will take a little time, but this will be our future if we clean this planet and ourselves.

We already have instruments that are transforming solar energy into other forms of energy. If we can create instruments that are powered by the sun's rays, what about the creator of those instruments? Man can transform himself in a purified condition to receive and use light energy. I have seen Yogis sitting on ice turn that ice into hot water in just a few minutes. As the human instrument becomes more refined, we will not need to pollute it with elements that we have surpassed.

The emotional bodies of human beings are more sick than their physical bodies

People think that only their bodies are sick. Maybe three thousand years from now, you will see hospitals for emotional bodies. The emotional bodies of human beings are more sick than their physical bodies. Hatred, anger, fear, revenge, treason, slander, and jealousy are the main cancerous diseases of the emotional body, but people do not realize this.

It was reported recently that doctors have discovered that fear and anger create cancer. Interestingly, this was reported thousands of years ago. Why have we been waiting to discover this? I am grateful that science has at last found proof that there is an anger element in the blood. This element creates stimulation to nerve channels and other parts of our body, eventually creating cancer, tumors, heart attacks, and strokes.

When you start releasing your own Core, that divineness, that great beauty and splendor within you will wash away your emotional illness.

When people hide

Communication. You see people who say, "I don't want to talk." "I don't want to speak."When people do not want to speak or relate and when they keep things secret, they are escaping from the Light of the Self. They will do more "gopher" business than before. When people hide, they are miserable, because they are doing something secretive that their conscience is not approving. And when your conscience is not approving, you are in trouble.
