Who are we?

Who are we?

Edited by Marco Ferrini

From the Book: Freedom from Loneliness and Suffering

The destiny of the body, with all its psychic and chemical aggregates, does not have the same nature, history and result of the destiny of the spiritual being. The spiritual being can also profit from living in a physical body, but he must be deeply aware of his superior nature (atman) to avoid distortions and improper identifications, which bring illusions, delusions and disillusionments.

From the Book: Freedom from Loneliness and Suffering

The topic that we will discuss today has a great anthropological value: it is the concept of complete health, called holistic health. In spite of the general economic well being in the industrialized world and the growing technological development of modern society, the individuals still suffer from a kind of bewilderment creating deep discomfort, fear, loneliness and suffering.

The Self: Center of all our psychic functions

Art-11

Edited by Marco Ferrini

From the Book: Karma and Reincarnation

A wise man does not deny impulses, emotions or passions, but he tries to study and measure them as phenomena. In order to do this he must remain detached, because if he allows himself to be swept away, he becomes trapped into them and part of them.

The three problems of life: knowledge, behaviour, control

The three problems of life

Edited by Marco Ferrini

For those who want to make this journey, there are three problems to be addressed: knowledge, behaviour and the management of the whole thing, or control. Knowledge is important, because without knowledge nothing can be obtained: only fools try to do things before they could understand why and how. If you have friends of this type, please try to convince them that they should first invest in knowledge, the best investment one can do.

A human being appears to be a paradox because he constitutes the union of three levels: the physical-organic, the psychic and the spiritual levels. The Vedas say that the spiritual level is the true dimension of the living entity. As long as the living entity is embodied, he must by all means take care both of the body and the mind, and of course also of himself - of the spirit.

Sublimation

Sublimation

Edited by Marco Ferrini

What we believe in should be in agreement with what we feel. If there are conflicts between the various psychic levels, we should immediately take steps to heal them.

Sublimation is the art of transferring our impulses to a higher platform, so we could call it the art of psychic transformation. For example the need for self-assertion can be transformed into humanitarian work to assist the needy, without the typical consequences created by a wild ego.

In the same way we can sublimate Eros in love, although such process generally requires a long work. For this reason, generally socio-psychological science and religiosity in the Vedas recommend intermediate stages, but in some cases it is possible to immediately and completely attain sublimation through the attainment of the state of love starting from the level of sexuality. In this regard we can see how will power is the most important instrument of the self for the transformation of the psychic structure.

Generally will power is intended as simple volition, but such power must be supported by wisdom, otherwise it can become very dangerous. Knowledge united with will power can give us wonderful results and restructure our life in a very satisfying way, not in an external sense but in an inner sense, enabling us to find an inner balance that can be maintained and guaranteed in any external circumstance.

Just like we face life, life faces us

Just like we face life, life faces us

Whether you are going to marry, start a professional career, begin a study course, in anything you want to do the most important thing that will determine its success or failure is, first and foremost, your attitude.

Your attitude towards life determines the attitude of life towards you. Your attitude towards others determines the attitude of others towards you.

If you isolate yourselves, others will isolate you, if you feel marginalized you will actually become so, while if you love you will be loved, by the obvious dynamics of reciprocation that will shape reality exactly according to what you are wishing for.

Unfortunately the automatic mechanism of reciprocation works both in the good and the bad direction. If you start to feel uneasy in a specific place you will end up feeling really bad there, if on the other hand you think you are comfortable, your attitude will make you really feel good. Just change your attitude.

I would like to comment on the importance of the inner attitude. Pay attention now, because you will learn techniques that will be immensely helpful for you to face all events in life, from the most pleasurable to the most painful. Sometimes people get themselves in troubles because of pleasant events and sometimes because of unpleasant events, therefore the wise say, “After pain joy comes, and after joy sorrow comes”.

The Universal Ethical Order

From the Book: Karma and Reincarnation

Nothing happens by chance: this universe is a perfect project and as such it is ruled by precise and rigorous laws aimed at governing life and its manifestations. This system of universal laws is known in Vedic culture with the name of dharma, the divine and eternal principle that regulates the natural and moral worlds, creation and all creatures.

From the Book: Karma and Reincarnation

Our actions and the subconscious motives that prompt us to act have a very strong influence on us and on the environment where we live: the world is not unchanging, but rather it is constantly transforming. Thus it is important to realize how each thought, each word and each action are extremely relevant to our life, as they shape the circumstances where we will find ourselves in the future, especially after leaving our present body.
