The human being's psychological split allows us to demonstrate the harsh reality of a superior level within each of us.
When we have been able to verify, for ourselves, the concrete fact of two people within us, an inferior one on the ordinary, common, everyday level and a superior one at a higher octave, then everything changes. In this case, we endeavor in life to act in accordance with the fundamental principles which we carry in the depths of our Being.
Just as there is an external life, there is also an internal life.
The external human being is not all there is; the psychological split teaches us the reality of the Inner Human Being.
The external human being has his own way of being. He is a thing of many activities and typical reactions in life, a puppet operated by invisible strings.
The Interior Human Being is the genuine Being. His conduct is processed by other, very different laws, and he can never be transformed into a puppet.
The external human being does not do a stitch without a thimble; he feels poorly compensated; he feels sorry for himself; he is overly concerned with himself. If a soldier, he aspires to being a general; if a factory worker, he objects when not promoted; he wants due recognition for his merits, etc.
No one can reach the Second Birth, be reborn again as it stated in the Gospel of the Lord, as long as they continue living with the psychology of the inferior, common, everyday humanoid.
When we recognize our own nothingness and internal misery, when we have the courage to review our life, undoubtedly we come to know for ourselves that in no way do we possess merit of any kind.
Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.
The poor in spirit, or indigent of spirit, are actually those who recognize their own nothingness, shame and inner misery. This kind of being unquestionably receives Enlightenment.
It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of Heaven.
It is obvious that the mind enriched by so many merits, insignia and medals, distinguished social virtues and complicated academic theories is not poor in spirit, and thus could never enter the kingdom of Heaven.
In order to enter the kingdom, the treasure of faith is essential. As long as the psychological split has not been produced within each of us, faith is more than impossible.
Faith is pure knowledge, direct experiential wisdom.
Faith has always been confused with vain beliefs; Gnostics must never make such a serious mistake.
Faith is direct experience of the real, the magnificent vivification of the Inner Human Being, authentic divine cognition.
The Inner Human being, by knowing his own internal world through direct mystical experience, will obviously also know the internal worlds of all the people who populate the face of the Earth.
No one can perceive the internal worlds of the planet Earth, the Solar system and the Galaxy in which we live if we have not previously come to know our own internal worlds. This is similar to a person who commits suicide, who escapes from life through a false door.
The extra-perceptions of a drug addict have their own roots in the abominable Kundabuffer organ (the tempting serpent of Eden).
Egoistic consciousness comes in a comatose state with hypnotic hallucinations very similar to those of someone under the influence of any drug.
We can present this matter in the following way: Hallucinations from the egoistic consciousness are the same as hallucinations brought about by drugs.
It is obvious that these two types of hallucinations have their original causes in the abominable Kundabuffer organ (Read chapter 17 of The Great Rebellion).
Obviously, drugs annihilate alpha waves. Then, unquestionably, the intrinsic connection between mind and brain is lost. This, in fact, results in total failure.
A drug addict turns vice into religion. Being misled, he thinks he experiences what is real under the influence of drugs. Unaware that the extra-perceptions produced by marijuana, L.S.D., morphine, hallucinogenic mushrooms, cocaine, heroin, hashish, tranquilizers in excess, amphetamine, barbiturates, etc., etc., are merely hallucinations produced by the abominable Kundabuffer organ.
Drug addicts devolve and degenerate in time. In the end they are submerged permanently within the infernal worlds.
