As we become aware that we are part of it, so we evolve
August 6th 2015
Why is it so difficult for humans to live together? Because they do not show one another enough attention or respect. Collective life as practised in a spiritual brotherhood is also a wonderful opportunity for its members to evolve and expand their consciousness. Those who lead a solitary life can be selfish and temperamental. There is no one standing next to them, no one for whom they must try to watch and improve their behaviour. But as soon as they begin to have anything to do with other people, what an effort – and it’s so hard! When people are aware that they belong to a whole that is much greater than themselves and are careful not to allow their actions, thoughts and feelings – their internal noise – to disturb the harmony, it shows that they are evolved. You will say, ‘What do you mean by their internal noise?’ Yes, all noise is the result of a dissonance, and the internal noise that humans make with their feelings, torments and rebellions disturbs the psychic atmosphere. Those who make a noise are unaware that they are also harming themselves, for one day this noise will take the form of psychological or even physical problems.
