LESSON - 4
Follow the Truth, whatever that be. It shall open endless opportunities and possibilities; both within and without.
Recognize the Truth by that which is truthful in you. If you feel weak, it is the mind operating. If it is strength you feel, know that the Spirit is in action. Mind can be both weak and strong. Spirit is always strong, true, and good.
Whatever binds you to an untruthful attitude or way of life, is mind-made. That which prompts you to do good deeds, and live an honorable life, is the Power of One. There is only One. All else is falsity; an illusion in the Ultimate Reality.
That which divides people is of the devil. Which unites, that belongs to Spirit. Unity is the Order of Things. Division is the nature of illusion.
Whatever happens, good or bad, is as per the Nature of Things. This is how people and civilizations evolve. Destiny has to be met. In full. Life has to be lived. We have to play our roles. Bad people do wrong. The good do right. The choice is entirely ours; to do right or wrong. Destiny does the rest.
Self-Realization is an elusive mistress. Few get IT. Doing good is easy. Everyone can do it. Good karma is enough sometimes, to please the Lady of Reality.
Human beings keep certain animals as pets; yet eat the flesh of others. Non-vegetarianism is not conducive to Self-Realization. Giving pain to others gets no gain to us.
Redemption is possible for those who repent; and, thereafter, live a holistic life unto Truth. Non-Violence and vegetarianism purify vital forces within man. In turn, some advance rapidly in Spirit because of it. We can ill afford the luxury to let such an opportunity slip by us.
Theories, precepts or concepts will not get us to heaven. Good karma may well can; to 'THAT', which, is heaven 'WITHIN'.
Good is the bad that has not happened to us. Count your blessings. Give thanks to the Lord, always.
