Knowledge of Oneself – Conference 26
WORLD OF RELATIONSHIPS
The world of relationships has three very different aspects that we need to clarify precisely.
First: We are related to the planetary body, that is to say the physical body. Second: We live on planet Earth and by logical sequence we are related to exterior world and issues relevant to us, family, business, money, issues of occupation, profession, politics, etc., etc., etc.
Third: the relationship of man to himself. For most people this kind of relationship is of no importance.
Unfortunately, the people are only interested in the first two types of relationships, looking with absolute indifference the third type.
Food, health, money, business, really are the main concerns of “Intellectual Animal” mistakenly called “man”.
Now it is clear that both physical body and world affairs are external to ourselves.
The planetary body (physical body) is sometimes sick, sometimes healthy and so on.
We always believe to have some knowledge of our physical body, but in reality even the best scientists in the world know much about the body of flesh and bone.
There is no doubt that the physical body, given its tremendous and complex organization, is certainly far beyond our comprehension.
With regard to the second type of relations, we are always victims of circumstances; It is regrettable that we have not yet learned to consciously originate circumstances.
There are many people unable to adapt to anything or anyone or to have true success in life.
To think of ourselves from the angle of Gnostic Esoteric Work is urgent to find out which of these three relationships we are missing.
It may be the case that we are mistakenly associated with the physical body and as a result we are sick.
It may happen that we are incorrectly related with the outside world and as a result we have conflicts, economic and social problems, etc., etc., etc.
We may be wrong regarding ourselves and sequentially suffer much because of lack of interior enlightening.
Obviously if our bedroom lamp is not connected to the electrical installation, our room will be dark.
Those who suffer from lack of interior enlightening, must connect their mind with the superior centers of their Being.
Unquestionably, we need to establish correct relationships not only with our planetary body (physical body) and to the outside world but also with each of the parts of our own Being.
Pessimists sick, tired of so many doctors and medicines, no longer want to recover; optimistic patients struggle to live.
In the Monte Carlo Casino many millionaires who lost their fortune in the game they committed suicide. Millions of poor mothers work to support their children.
Countless applicants depressed by lack of psychic powers and intimate lighting have renounced the esoteric work on themselves. Few people know how to benefit from adversity.
In times of strong temptation, discouragement and despair one must appeal to the intimate remembrance of oneself.
At the bottom of each of us is the Aztec Tonantzin, Stella Maris, the Egyptian Isis, God Mother, waiting for us to heal our painful heart.
When oneself receive the shock of “Remembering “, it actually produces a miraculous change in all the work of the body, so that the cells receive a different food.
