Unquestionably, while in rigorous observation of the “myself,” a complete logical differentiation between the exterior events of practical life and the interior states of the Consciousness is always something unavoidable and non-excludable.

We urgently need to know where we are located relative to the interior state of Consciousness, as well as to the specific nature of the exterior event that is happening to us in a given moment.

Life in itself is a series of events that process themselves through time and space. Someone said, “Life is a chain of woes that humans carry entangled in their souls.”

Everyone is free to think as he wishes. I believe that disenchantment and bitterness always proceed the ephemeral pleasures of a fleeting moment.

Each event has its special characteristic flavor. The interior states also are of a distinct type. This is incontrovertible, irrefutable.

Indeed, the interior work upon oneself emphatically refers to the diverse psychological states of the Consciousness.

No one can deny that in our interior we carry many errors and that erroneous states also exist.

If indeed we want to change, we need with maximum and unavoidable urgency to radically modify those erroneous states of our Consciousness.

The absolute modification of the erroneous states originates complete transformations in the field of practical life.

Obviously, when one seriously works on the erroneous states, then the unpleasant events of life can no longer hurt so easily.

We are stating something that can only be comprehended by living it, when indeed one experiences it precisely in the field of actions.

Whosoever does not work on himself is always a victim of circumstances; he is like a miserable log on the boisterous waters of the ocean.

Events incessantly change in their multiple combinations. They come one after another in waves; they are influences...

Indeed, good and bad events exist. Some events will be better or worse than others.

Certainly, to modify certain events, to alter results, to modify situations, etc., is possible amidst the number of possibilities.

However, some factual situations which truly cannot be altered exist.

These cases must be consciously accepted, even when some become dangerous and even painful...

Unquestionably, such a grief disappears when we do not identify ourselves with the problem that has arisen...

We must consider life as a successive series of interior states. The authentic history of our life in particular is formed by these states...

When reviewing the totality of our own existence, we can then verify for ourselves in a direct manner that many unpleasant situations were possible thanks to wrong interior states...

Although Alexander the Great was always temperate by nature, he gave in, due to pride, to the excesses which produced his death...

Francis I died due to a dirty and abominable Adultery, which is still well remembered in history...

When Marat was assassinated by a perverse Nun, he was dying of arrogance and envy, he believed himself to be absolutely just...

Unquestionably, the ladies of the “Parc des Cerfs” totally exhausted the vitality of the horrible fornicator Louis XV.

Due to jealousy, Othello became an assassin.

Many are the people who die of ambition, anger or jealousy; this is well known by psychologists...

When our will irrevocably fixes itself on an absurd tendency, we become candidates for the pantheon or cemetery...

Therefore, jails are filled with sincerely mistaken people.
