It is the awareness of unfulfilled desires
which gives a nation the feeling
that it has a mission and a destiny.

                                       Eric Hoffer

Be happy in the moment, that’s enough. Each moment is all we need, not more.

The best way to capture moments is to pay attention. This is how we cultivate mindfulness. Mindfulness means being awake. It means knowing what you are doing.Jon Kabat-Zinn

Violence generates more violence; hatred produces more hatred. Peace cannot be conquered. Peace cannot be the result of violence. Peace comes to us only when we dissolve the Ego, when we destroy within us all those psychological factors that produce war. ~ Samael Aun Weor

We must experience the Truth in a direct, practical and real way; this is only possible in the stillness and silence of the mind, and this is achieved by means of meditation. ~ Samael Aun Weor

What is the use of education if we do not become creative, conscious and truly intelligent? Real education does not mean knowing how to read and write. Any stupid person, any fool can know how to read and write. We need to have intelligence and it only awakens within us when the consciousness awakens. ~ Samael Aun Weor

When consciousness has awakened it is not something sensational or spectacular. It's simply a reality as natural as the one of a tree that has growth slowly and developed without starts or sensational stuffs. Nature is Nature. ~ Samael Aun Weor

It's not hard for the ego to admit the Universe can be bigger, in fact it's very hard for Spiritual people to admit the Universe is bigger than just a belief system. The ego itself doesn't admit nor deny because 'technically' the ego doesn't exist - what exists in your reality is your definition of the ego -whatever that is. Did you know that the ego is not a Spiritual term, it's a psychology term? Did you also know that people talking about the ego is psychoanalysis?

Are you aware that Jung based his understanding of the ego on the Sanskrit Ahamkara? He was a well-versed scholar of ancient religion/philosophy that might have stood above so many in here. Both ego and Aham means 'I', and it's a Latin term that the ancients couldn't have used because Latin didn't exist that far back. Did you also know that the ancients so many revere in here didn't differentiate between religion/philosophy and what is known today as psychology? Did you know that in the context of Ahamkara, ego is a kara or 'invented thing'? Is using the word 'ego' and redefining it to suit one's agenda and therefore perpetuating ignorance not Chitta or 'Lower Mind'? It is Chitta that creates those karas or 'invented things' that the Aham or I is made from.

The unbalanced ego seeks status, and while the mainstream idea of status is monetary wealth to the unbalanced ego (using it for clarity purposes) also finds status in other ways. The brain/mind can make status associations with being Spiritual because the unbalanced ego considering itself a 'Spiritual Being' is no different to someone who considers themselves rich. Someone who is rich can think of themselves as 'better than' a poor person, someone who uses the term 'Spiritual being' can think they are 'better than' a non-Spiritual being. The grandiose title of Spiritual Adept, to the unbalanced ego, is status - as is "A wealth of knowledge," Spiritual or otherwise. Depending no how people use the words, 'awakened' and 'aware' can also be egotistical because it can imply their being better than someone who isn't.

Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.
