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.
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.
What is your advice on how we can contribute to a better world?
It’s by being and behaving in all sincerity with ourselves that we appeal to what’s just in the hearts and minds of humanity. It’s through our altruistic behaviour and generous deeds that we shed light on the false and unjust. This is how we participate in the purification of this world.
Is love natural? If so, why does it seem there is so much lack of love in the world?
Love is most definitely natural, but our hearts are influenced, and therefore ‘contaminated’ by negative emotions, keeping them closed, and obscuring the truth of love. These negative emotions come about by false needs that are consistently unmet, unrealistic expectations of life that lead to frustrations, and ideals indoctrinated into us by our social environment, ideals which basically go along the line of competition rather than sharing with one another. True love is absent in false needs and meaningless expectations, and most definitely, in conflicting relationships with one another. Love is unconditional and develops naturally and effortlessly in the total surrender of our true being, in accepting and valuing all that is, just as it is…
