Why should we meditate? And is meditation beneficial for everyone?
Through meditation, we attempt to experience the very nature of reality within ourselves. It is a way to discover who we really are and to better understand what is essential in life. It helps us become One with the only real movement, without the help of our memory. Meditation is direct contact with the present moment. It is a wonderful way to observe ourselves, our sensations, thoughts, recurrent feelings, and our lifestyles.
What is your deepest wish?
My deepest wish does not differ from my profoundest vision. I notice in the world a new way of thinking, and accordingly, a new way of life. Already there is much more harmonious and appropriate behaviour, and this will without doubt, lead every single man to act as a responsible citizen of this small planet Earth.
What does our subconscious consist of?
Our subconscious consists of a personal subconscious and a collective one. Our personal subconscious contains all the knowledge that is registered by our brains, and the collective one, contains all the power of human imagination and refers to the knowledge that we all have in common, going back to ancient forms of humanity’s universal thoughts.
What books would you recommend for those looking for the Truth?
A book is but a set of words and concepts. Although it can reveal certain truths, it can never be able to convey the true nature of all things. Ultimate reality cannot be expressed other than in a direct manner, by directly experiencing it. Words relate to distinct things, which apparently exist in a separate manner, and we know that any type of distinction is definitively an illusion. But it’s true that all conceptual distinctions allow our mind to perceive reality. It’s through illusion that we discover reality. Every book can therefore teach us something on reality, but we must always be aware to take nothing as absolute truth, and to remain open to the essence of all that is.
You affirm that there are no bad people. You say that the only distinction we can make is the level of consciousness of each individual. Can you elaborate further?
Every individual comes into this world with a hereditary family load, and in addition, inherits another load, the heritage of the society he grows up in, and identifies himself with. The ideas, circumstances and lifestyle around a person, on the large part, determine his behaviour. The only thing that can liberate us from this darker baggage, is the change of consciousness which love offers.
The world as we know it, is it real or unreal?
The appearances of the material world and all its phenomena, is a temporary manifestation of reality. Nothing exists in this world perpetually, therefore, everything that appears in this physical world exists just as it it in this moment, and has a finite duration.
What does spiritual transformation mean?
Spiritual transformation is the process that occurs when we surpass beyond our bodies and minds, when we completely come to terms with our past traumas and our worries of the future. After spiritual transformation, our actions prove to be more virtuous and increasingly less as the product of fear, pride or selfishness.
How can we find eternal happiness?
Everything we feel as human beings comes from a personal domain. Happiness, however, is not a personal state. Our happiness always depends on the happiness of others. That being said, once we can extricate ourselves from the game of the past and the future, we attain a state of peace with the present moment, where life unfolds with truth and love. This is the only way we connect with our true nature.
How do we know if our partner is the right one, and that our relationship is a good thing?
A relationship with someone is a temporary event, since, as with all relationships, duality exists. We know that no form of duality is eternal, but we also know that everything that brings us closer to reality, has a meaning. The only permanent relationship we have is with ourselves. The questions we must ask ourselves are the following: are we learning more about ourselves with the relationship we have with our current partner? Is it bringing us closer to who we really are, and do we feel truly united with the other person, and living a real union? An honest analysis and reflexion provides all the answers.
