"Know Thyself"

This small saying has a very deep and mystical meaning....It means to find out who you consider yourself to be...are you filled with anxiety,or strained, or in a word..unhappy !.....then you do not know your true self....the true self is the person that you really are. It is filled with happiness and love..without love, happiness on earth and beyond,is impossible. this is why the greatest mystics on earth have stressed this concept for achieving a more abundant life....as Jesus said:"you will have life,and have it more abundantly"...the problem with humanity is that they think that they are the false Ego...this is the imaginary self that we have created, and which we believe that we are..this ego is filled with selfishness, greed, hatred, and all the other vices that are culminated under the word evil....the real self is filled with love, humility, unselfishness, and all the other virtues that we really are....this is why,we give these attributes to the Universal Mind that some call God...so the secret to happiness and the meaning of life is to become who you truly are..a decent, loving, human being, that has a relationship with the source of love called God....this relationship is really just sharing love with all life on earth and confirming the realization that "We are created in the image and likeness of God".....

Why we must go beyond human thought...

Human thinking is the process of comparing things. On the everyday level, comparison is useful. In buying a product, you compare price and quality... But there is no place for comparison in your inner life. If you call one thing good, you must also call its opposite bad. then, if the bad come your way, you suffer. you call it good when you receive a cheery letter, you will feel bad when no letter comes...Our thinking must not be influenced by these painful opposites , but rater it must generate from the awareness of the Cosmic Mind..We must go beyond both the good and the bad conceived by human thinking...Beyond it we find a new Good...To think from the opposites of good and bad is to be spiritually asleep..In this state of sleep a man tears himself apart by trying to be what he thinks is good and avoiding what he thinks is bad. but it is impossible to be humanly good or bad, for of our human selves, we have neither...There is only one Cosmic Goodness..Every true religion teaches this, but few see it...........Fear of badness means that you identify yourself with it, that is, you assume you are your own badness, which you are not..Of your human self, you are neither good or bad.................Vernon Howard

The Main Illusion of Humanity...

Humans are hypnotized by their own set of false illusions...They not only think illusions are good for them, but haven't the slightest notion of their hypnotic state!...The chief illusion of humans is a false sense of self..The identity, which we ascribe to the mind of man , is a factitious one...You have invented this false self...The purpose of life is to dissolve this false self and once again become the real self,which is beyond selfishness and ego...The process for achieving this mental state has been followed by the greatest mystics , saints , and philosophers throughout time...this knowledge has been keep secret because the powers of the earth would have persecuted, imprisoned any human teaching these truths....they would be called magicians and satan worshipers...They would be hounded because they teach you to have a direct relationship with the Universal Mind, that some call God....and you would not follow the powers of earthly religions anymore...This is the hidden knowledge of Jesus, Buddah, and the Hindu Mystics.....This is the path of the Mystic....Start walking and find pleasure in your thinking....

The innocence of a Child....

The mystic Jesus said;" I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven."....A child does not have any attachments to the past nor does he worry about the future...When a child say, Mommy, I love you so much! he really means it...The child does not recall the punishment that he received the day before,because of his misdeeds...he has no worries about tomorrow...He does not hold onto anything...The child simply loves and forgets..A child can never do anything partially..Whenever he does anything, he is fully present..Doing something partially is possible only when there is an ego.....The ego or self is the wall that prevents you from being as little children and prevents you from knowing the Universal Mind which is the energy of love called God............Ethan Walker
