Life on earth is an illusion, a dream

Leave yourself free to acquire the riches that will be yours for all eternity-
Yes, life on earth is an illusion, a dream; reality is something quite different. What is the point of losing eternal life for the sake of an illusion that will soon disappear without a trace? True, you have to eat, clothe yourself, have a roof over your head, and so on, but the intelligent way to behave is to do no more than necessary in this area, and to leave yourself free to acquire the riches that will be yours for all eternity.

Otherwise everything will be taken from you and you will end by being naked and destitute. Even the books you have read and the knowledge you acquired at university will be taken away and wiped from your mind. Next time you come to earth you will have to begin to read and study all over again, because the wealth you possess today is not really yours; it has been given to you by others.

Genius comes from profound personal experience in a past life
If something does not rightfully belong to you, you are going to have to give it back. You will be allowed to keep and bring back with you in your next incarnation only the gifts and qualities that you have explored, experienced and absorbed for yourself. All talents, all gifts of genius, can be explained in this way. A philosopher or musician of genius is someone who comes into the world with knowledge acquired through profound personal experience in a previous incarnation.

How many human beings are willing to put their inner life first
Human beings are in this world in order to proclaim the glory of God and to help others. But instead of doing this the great majority bury themselves away and become like brute beasts because they are always afraid of what the neighbours or their family might think. Of course if everyone is always ruled by fear, nothing new will ever happen in the world.

Where will you find anyone today who is ready to endure privations, anyone who says, ‘That is not important; I have everything I need in myself; my inner life is so intense and rich that I need nothing else’?

    Thank you dear Sam, there are so many profound topics in this book, that we can’t stop posting from it. Hope you don’t mind. They are from the Complete Works which are complete lectures, unedited.

      Thank you – I have a few of the Complete Works volumes, which I will get onto reading one of these days. But please never stop posting, as the regular posts help to keep me connected to all these wonderous teachings, and I can’t get enough of this knowledge and reminders. ?

    Yes, I agree with Sam that we are truly blessed to have this wonderful teaching to guide our spiritual journey.
    I have used the recommended books from the online study program as a reading guide and I am just starting the last book of series 3 (The Mysteries of Fire and Water) and am wondering where to go from here.
    Is there a recommended reading list? Do you have any suggestions on how I should proceed from here? There is just so much to choose from!

      Hello dear Lise, thank you so much for your message. Re a reading list, you have been reading the Izvor books which are a summary, you may want to consider the Complete Works which contain complete lectures. Many people prefer reading the unedited versions.
      here is the link where you can find the table listing the books relating to the 12 synosphere themes.

      The Master always encouraged practices to go together with theory and for this, he recommended Complete Works 13 (A New Earth, Methods, Practices, Exercises, Formulas, Prayers). Let me know if you have any questions, while reading the book, as there is a lot to absorb.

      Re the Online sessions, I am planning a new Group and as soon as it is formed, I will let you know 🙂

      Wishing you many blessings for Christmas and New Year, dear Lise

    Many thanks Valerie!
    I do have the “A New Earth” and I do agree that doing some of the practices along with the reading is very beneficial. Otherwise it becomes too much of an intellectual exercise. I did get up to watch the sunrise this summer and loved that exercise. What a great way to start the day!
    Thanks for the suggestion. Will focus more on the Complete Works then.
    Looking forward to the new Online Courses. Please do keep me posted.
    A Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you as yours as well! 🙂
