Vasistha advising Lord Rama
The true meaning of life is to participate in the work of our elder brothers, those great Spirits who want to help mankind, and to tell oneself, ‘I want to change; I want to work for a divine idea’.
In this way, this divine idea will grow and spread, bringing many blessings to the whole world and causing geniuses, saints and prophets to be born. Nothing is more important than this work. Without it man is a walking corpse. Understand what I am saying and you will leave here happy, because you will sense that your life has taken on unsuspected meaning.
You must not expect much from politics, therefore, until political leaders have studied Initiatic Science.
There will be more and more difficulties, conflicts and misunderstandings and they will be unable to find solutions. They think that they don’t need the light of this science. Well, they will see whether they need it or not; there are some surprises in store for them that will force them to be more mature in their attitudes and then they will understand that this science is not to be scoffed at.
Yes, I have to tell you the truth even if some people don’t like to hear it. Until the truth about mankind, the universe and the Creator is known, any solutions that may be found will be only partial, makeshift and temporary; they cannot be perfect, they will always involve certain difficulties.
Rama was instructed in Initiatic Science
If Rama instituted a Golden Age during which mankind enjoyed centuries of peace and prosperity, it was because he had been instructed in Initiatic Science by a mysterious being who guided and advised him. Eventually, the light of that Science was lost and, once again, anarchy and violence took over and has reigned, now, for many thousands of years.
Today, it is neither moral qualities nor intelligence that has the upper hand, but force. Everybody wants power because everybody is persuaded that power, the use of force, is the surest way to achieve success. But let me tell you that it is the very worst way. Power must never be first; it must always be last.
The future form of government will put love, wisdom and truth in first place, and power and economic interests will be seen as secondary in importance. But, in today’s world, this order is reversed: power and economics are given priority, and this is why the situation is going from bad to worse and, whatever people may think, it will not right itself because this order is contrary to the laws of the cosmos, to the universal order.
