HOW TO WIN GAMES AND INFLENCE DESTINY BOOK IV
The Masters of Destiny , Part one
HOMAGE TO THE TEACHERS
The only road to freedom, health, happiness
and prosperity is a lasting peace. Peace
lasts only when man takes fully conscious
control over his destiny.
The workings of full consciousness are subtle,
profound, difficult to discover and most
difficult to understand. But occasionally
there appears a being who demonstrates them
in such a fashion that the whole world sooner
or later catches his meaning and follows his lead.
The appearance of such a Teacher is rare and
awesome, like the sight of a great comet shining
in the night. Nevertheless, it happens.
THE ANCIENT TOURIST
THE ANCIENT TOURIST
The culture-heroes in the Earth lie hiding,
waiting for their Chief to call their name.
On campus, city-street, hill-top, farm,
in Congress and Pentagon they lie sleeping,
waiting for their rightful Chief to sound
the ancient Drum.
Age after age he appears, land after land,
whenever the law breaks down and lawlessness
up-rises. He calls the heroes to their duty,
to protect the weak, to uphold the Law,
to guard the peace – age after age.
No one knows who he is or where he comes from,
age after age he recreates himself in the ancient
form. His eyes flash fire, he roars like a lion,
he pounds the Drum to rouse the sleeping legions,
he shakes the Earth to wake the living dead.
THE RIDE OF THE GODS
The culture-heroes mount the skies and take
the country by storm. They bear wondrous gift
a laughing, boisterous crew. Some appear
like a great rain-cloud, rising above the
horizon, shrouding Earth in darkness, others
tumble like whirlwinds. They flash lightning
and rumble thunder. They sweep out rubbish
and lead the little leaves a merry dance.
Gods of the Sky of the Bhagavad Gita, of Greece
and Japan, desert and fjord, Arthur of Camelot
and his Knights of the Grail, Charlemagne
and his Palladins, the English Queens and their
verturing Lords, Founding Fathers of America,
water-brothers of the Space Patrol.
The culture-heroes wear the ancient faces.
They do what’s to be done, then it’s done
and they’re gone.
This is a call to the Mothers in the Earth,
to the Goddesses Shakti, Venus and Kannon,
to Joan of Arc, Helen of Troy, Florence
Nightingale, to the Shining Ones, the All-
Seeing Ones, to the Three Queens.
Take on whatever guise you choose but show
yourselves now, gentle protectresses and
maintainers, to keep the flame and serve
as rallying centers for the gathering tribes.
We men are creators, pioneers, providers;
we give our all in a single charge. Receive
that power within you, gentle and tame it.
Assure our victory; remind us in the midst
of battle nobility guards the Crown.
BY THE MOTHER THAT BORE US!
Man has always been aware of himself as
a single individual consciousness. Due
however to unreliable feedback, many men
assume it’s their personal consciousness
that they’re aware of, unique, different,
and cut off from all the rest.
Visualize if you will a sea of energy,
washing in tidal motion around the globe.
In it float freely moving little wicks,
turning it into one giant Earth-Sized
Each wick gives out its individual light;
some are mere sparks, some cold and distant,
flickering like stars. Others shed a warm
and stedy glow. Some shine with the radiance
THE CREATION OF WORLDS
Each man shapes the world he lives in. We
may rank the various creations by the happiness
they contain, their beauty, and the health
of those living there. We may distinguish
10 levels, or types of worlds.
Man is borne on the highest and remains there
until some unfortunate condition drags him down.
Unless he recovers he’ll sink ever lower until
his former high estate seems just a dream.
People on the lower four levels tend to forget
the existence of the higher and don’t remember
how to get back up. They think the whole world
is in the same bad shape. There is no happiness here.
THE LOWER LEVELS
1) People on this level endure suffering.
2)Here they develop enormous appetites
which can’t be satisfied.
3) Life on this level erodes all human
values. People fear the stronger,
and despise and exploit the weaker.
4) Here people make «stupid» mistakes and fill
with anger when reminded of them. This
prevents their learning anything and knocks
them back down to the lowest level.
We get off this “Wheel of Suffering» when we
eliminate mental and verbal negativity.
THE MIDDLE LEVELS
All men hit the lower levels several times
a day, or rise to the higher, if they so condition
5) This level is marked by peace of mind.
We reach it when we gladly, willingly
choose to serve those we love.
6) This level is marked by temporary but
euphoric happiness. It arises when we
receive an unexpected “reward”, and long
and fond expectations are fulfilled.
7) Consciousness rises and there is great
pleasure when we perceive the truth
and use it to direct our lives.
THE HIGHER LEVELS
8)Here there is freedom from pain and
anxiety. We achieve it when we become
absorbed in expressing what is true —
in life, the arts, science, whatever.
This is the level of the specialist.
9)Boundless strength and determination
arise when we KNOW what we live is true,
and TEACH others to do the same.
All men live on these nine levels, the where
depending on the level of their consciousness.
(On the lower four it is such that people living
there suffer themselves to live there.) Above
these nine is another, more wondrous level.
THE DIAMOND WORLD
10) This level is clear and shining,
without flaws, and cannot be shaken.
Only those live here who of their own
free will descend to help all others.
This is man’s natural habitat, for which he was
evolved, where he feels most at home and
These words contain the essence of the Law:
“Whatever is arises out of itself!»
NAM MYOHO RENGE KYO!
THE TRAINING OF HEROES
Proper training enables man to reach, stay,
remain and support himself on the highest level.
The student goes through four preliminary stages
to reach mastery, remaining in each until
he learns enough to move on:
Beginning enlightenment: he awakens to the
Intermediate: He acts to satisfy himself.
Advanced: he becomes aware of the outcome of
his actions and either stops or goes on.
Expert: he computes, corrects and adjusts
to insure his success.
Master: he sees that personal success, happiness,
enlightenment, etc., are total illusions,
and therefore finds peace and fulfillment
in devoting all his efforts to the happiness
Intelligence and consciousness are inherent in
the energy flowing through your system. Full
consciousness depends on your ability to manage
and direct this flow.
“The Unfolding of the Golden Flower” is a symbolic
description of the process of enlightenment.
It is depicted by a radiant 1000-petalled lotus.
The “Golden Flower” meditation teaches how to
direct one’s energy so enlightenment may arise.
Meditate where- and when ever, 3-10 minutes,
twice a day or more. Keep the spine straight,
chin parallel to the ground. Breathe quietly
through the nose. (Concentration is disrupted
Run through the frist three steps in 5-15 seconds;
then spend the rest of the time on the fourth.
THE GOLDEN FLOWER
1.Imagine a vortex of golden energy funneling
into your forehead. Let it stimulate
the energy-center there.
2.Guide a tube of that energy from the center
down the left sinus and side into your heart-
center. Let it stimulate the action there.
Feel its radiance tingle through your body.
3.Drive a tube of energy, from the heart up
the right side of the body and out through
the top of your head into the center above.
Strengthen the centers and flow, make
them bright and shining. Drive the energy!
4.Hold it, … be still! Slowly extend
your awareness outward; notice the spectrum-
colored patterns of diffraction all around.
PRESENCE OF CONSCIOUSNESS
Consciousness guides you in a thousand ways.
It knows the meaning of your life.
It speaks when you speak, moves when you move.
It sees what your eyes see, thinks in
your mind, and then adds all these data
to what it already knows.
Have faith in the presence of consciousness
within you; it is wise and knows what is right.
It guides and keeps you from going wrong.
Remember its presence, let it reassure you
when you’re out of touch. It will see to it
all you do comes out right, for it has the power,
and it knows the Law, and you are its favorite child.
RE-CREATION OF HEROES
Consciousness is a knowing function: it expresses
its thoughts and watches its workings, thereby
becoming conscious of itself.
This human organism is an exceedingly sensitive
instrument of expression. It can handle
a thousand shapes and media. Thought, love
and care went into its development.
It’s the crown of creation and
does its creator proud.
It is happy when it does the job it was designed
for; its workings are graceful and skilled.
It is cherished, respected and gets good care.
When weary it is laid to rest until consciousness
once more recreates it to express a similar thought.
THE GOOD COURSE
Innumerable are the great heroes in the world
that embraces gods and men; the inhabitants
thereof are unable to completely know
the leaders. None can comprehend their powers
and states of emancipation, their absence of
hesitation and superior faculties, whatever
One may follow the good course through centuries
of conscious incarnations, under various teachers
which are difficult to find, most difficult to
understand. And after following this good course
over many cycles one may, on a high plateau of
enlightenment, discover the fruit thereof.
And Therefore, like the other chiefs of the world,
one recognizes how it is, what it is, and
what are its characteristics: to try and explain
it would be like trying to describe the taste of honey
to someone who’s never had any.
The true hero is distinguished first by his
warm and radiant personality, second by his
GOOD manners. (Not third or fourth, or in
any other order.) He also has charm, high
good humor, an infinite capacity for
compassion and attention to human detail.
A culture-hero must acquire six traits:
2) ETHICS AND GOOD MANNERS,
5) COOL-HEADEDNESS induced by meditation,
6) CLEAR-SIGHTEDNESS as a result of
When all six are present and perfected, they act
as mental-behavioral stabilizers which keep
the hero-personality on course under heaviest
pressure. They are also the source of his powers.
The well-trained hero has 10 powers:
1) He lives as long as he pleases.
2)He enters deep meditation at will.
3) He can shower immensely valuable
necessities on all living beings.
4) He improves destiny everywhere.
5) He lives in and is of the world and
purifies it by his existence.
6) He straightens the bent, frees the bound,
and releases energy wherever he goes.
7) He goes the ways peace.
8) He can perform miracles, if necessary.
9)He understands the purpose of love, ,
its intrinsic meaning and implications.
10) He stills doubt, opens eyes, dissolves
pain and guilt. He bestows understanding
which leads to insight and higher wisdom.
He shows the way to fulfillment of every
FUNCTIONS OF A LEADER
The culture-hero does his thing, whatever
it is. He performs with grace and skill,
whatever he does. He is a trend-setter,
a style-leader, whoever he is. His personal
and public appearance are in no wise different.
Like Indra, king of gods surrounded by goddesses,
he stays in a palace which is pure and transparent
as beryl, and outside it his reflections appear.
Men and women living on Earth then see that
reflection, perceive his enjoyment, and resolve
to be soon like him. To that end they acquire good
and wholesome habits and start life over in a higher
THE ROAD TO XANADU
Become fully conscious of what you are doing.
When you talk to a person, talk to them.
When you eat, eat.
When you sit, sit.
(1) YOU AND THE GENERAL
INFLUENCES SURROUNDING YOU,
You are slothful, covetous, greedy of gain
and cleverness. You want to win glory, but
are fickle. The lessons you learn and your
own reading fade as soon as filed.
You are stubborn, inquisitive, and you keep
on trying. Your record, spotted though it is,
earns you the attention of Those in Power.
You go through a regular course of duties,
and do Them ample honor. You meet the present
World-Teacher, who roars at you.
You’re always the last to catch on, but
you finally reveal yourself as a Lord or Lady
of an Ancient House, teaching the ways of love
to an infinity of creatures.
(2) THIS CROSSES YOU AND
SHOWS THE OPPOSING FORCES,
WHETHER FOR GOOD
What you have seen is still hazy, but
the sheer brilliance of that one glimpse
has bedazzled you into thinking
you know it all. Fix your mind on this
point: there are still higher levels!
The seed has been planted, but needs sun
water; the root-system must develop. A course
of duty sets up the causal conditions
for full consciousness.
Someone is rattlingat tour head. «Come on!
Get going! This life is one-time opportunity
and does not last» Look deep! Meditate!
Don’t let serenity trick you into resisting
(3) THIS CROWNS YOU AND
REPRESENTS YOUR CONSCIOUS
THOUGHTS IN THE MATTER
Then it is dawn. Your eyes open. There
are indeed the higher levels, gleaming
just before you. The peak of the mountain
rears clear above the dissolving fog.
You can get there from here.
Your fondest expectations have come true;
you have received an unexpected gift.
Joy and gratitude overwhelm you;
Tears spring to your eyes; Quite
spontaneously there arises the thought
that you must bring all living things
up here with you.
But who can you talk to of all this without
them thinking you boastful or insane?
There you stand with empty hands on a lonely
mountain-peak. It’s time to come home.
(4) SUBCONSCIOUS PROCESSES
You know the “How To Ski” books by heart
and you’ve been rehearsing in a closet.
Time’s come to hit the cold long slopes
and practice what you know before the eyes
of the world.
Here there are no more explanations.
Present knowledge must be integrated
with experience to provide a basis for
new strategic developments.
Please not to worry about initial mistakes.
Your teachers were also beginners, once.
Moving you can always rebalance and correct.
Maintaining the good course you can do
no wrong. Have a little more confidence
(5) BEHIND YOU, INFLUENCES
Teacher is gruff and sarcastic. The student
overcomes pride and restlessness. He learns
Studying how to serve and save the world, you
grow disgusted with your own defects and swear
to erase them. Out go those trouble-making
habits of “I” and “mine”. Out go those other
distractions, negativity, ill-will, the constant
craving for sensual gratification, anything that
might slow and keep you from fulfilling your vow.
Now, for the frist time, you get a good grip
on that stubborn ox of your mind and tame it.
Emotional turbulence disappears. Consciousness
rise to a level of great radiance and solemn
(6) BEFORE YOU, INFLUENCES
BEGINNING TO OPERATE
IN THE NEAR FUTURE
Unaccountable legions of enlightened beings
appear to you in the four quarters of the globe,
each in his sphere.
These spheres become illumined with miraculous
luster as you perceive them, and in the intervals
between those spheres, in the dreary places
of gloom and despondency, where even the sun
and the moon, so powerful and splendid, have
no advantage of their shining power, even in
those quarters a great luster arises instantly.
And the beings who appear in those interspaces
behold each other and exclaim, «Look, there
are other beings also here appearing! Look,
there are other beings also here!”
(7) YOUR TRUE SELF EMERGING
Unity attained, name and form dissolve.
Before you stretch unlimited vistas of ever
greater perfection as you strive to harmonize
with what you perceive as a shining jewel
in the palm of your hand.
You manifest the higher truth, demonstrate
the workings of wisdom and love; you are cool,
clear-sighted, benevolent; you are
compassionate, generous, kind.
You perform heroic feats, storming heaven on
thundering wings. «Make room, You People Up
There! Here I come …» All this energy will take
(8) THE WORLD YOU CREATE
The world is a hall of radiant mirrors
reflecting thought and action. You perceive
processes of consciousness flowering
all around you. Teachers appear like sudden
jewels shooting through the night, following
the good course. You know the presence of love.
Here there is diamond clear perfection.
There is nothing now to improve and never
was. From the beginning, there wasn’t
a speck of dust to mar the purity.
The Shining Stranger you’ve been tracking
turns his face, and it’s you.
(9) YOUR EXPECTATIONS IN THE MATTER
Reality exceeds the highest expectations,
You shed your preconceptions as totally
Shedding preconceptions, you transcend
Transcending limitations … you transcend …
(10) THE FINAL RESULT,
THE TOTAL OUTCOME
OF ALL FORCES
AND CONDITIONS NOW OPERATING
Consciousness appears like a cloud
rising above the horizon, shrouding
all space in darkness, covering the Earth.
This great rain-cloud, big with water,
is wreathed in flashes of lightning and
rouses with its thundering call all creatures.
In time and without premeditation, jewelled
rain falls effortlessly, nourishing trees
and shrubs alike. Then the sun shines, again
without premeditation; flowers open and
the fruit ripens.
(11) HEAR, MEN OF EARTH
Pace and good will to all men of Erth!
Pace to those tired of guilt and confusion,
weary of doubt stuggle, to those who
despair! We do not come to scold or punish.
We come to feed the hungry, clothe the naked,
to heal and teach the people of Earth HOW TO
Measure well the vision that comes to you
from any part of life. That which unifies,
frees, raises the consciousness, that is good.
You need no statistics or outside advisors.
The life which beats in your heart knows
what is constructive and positive: Whatever
brings relief and release from bondage,
whatever brings peace and joy,
that is good.
Whatever you feel, heat, pain or love, that all
Whatever offends or pleases you, offends or
pleases all men. Forget the lies and misunder-
standings! Hear, men of Earth: the body, mind
and consciousness of man is ONE!
This we know to be true.
Sat Nam Siri Wah Guru.
PORTRAIT OF A CULTURE HERO
Latching the gate of his house on the mountain
he ambles down into the market place bright-eyed,
tousle-haired, smiling. Needing nothing he comes
with empty pockets and helpful hands.
Even the wisest cannot find him. He drinks wine
with the wine-drinkers and talks cash-flow with
money-managers. He doesn’t resemble any of
Descriptions vary, he seems to be a mirror.
To the imps he looks impish, to lovers he is
a lover, to fools he is a fool. No one can
lay a finger on him. Judge him and you judge
He comes, and goes. People wonder who he is;
he knows he’s the most important person in
the universe. This affords him no end of amusement
and occasionally blows his mind.
One nation strong in the ways of peace
leads the world by showing the way.
One city flourishing in peace sets an
example to the nation.
One man of peace can save a city.
Is it you?
THE MASTER OF DESTINY
THE PATH OF HEROES
We are a group of young people determined
to build for themselves a golden world,
one that all can live in, enjoy and love.
The first requirement is peace, and we are
therefore working according to a well-researched
plan to bring about world-wide conditions
peace by June 21, Midsummer Night, 1972.
The plan came to us a gift of the ages but
it is our will, wisdom and desire which are
making it come true. That will is the free
will of mankind, that wisom a clear channel
to the universe, that desire the greatest love.
The word’s been spread for centuries now
by oxcart, camel caravan and executive jet,
“The world wants peace!” And still the world
is waiting for some George to get it done.
We have therefore decided to be George.
Georges are neither elected nor appointed.
There are no George-certification committees
that we know of, no authorized George-licenses.
Somewhere indeed an official George may be
getting it ready; in the meanwhile…
THE EDUCATIONAL APPROACH
The world produces a sufficient surplus
to stimulate a healthy rise in the energy-
production of previously under-developed
individuals, (communities, nations).
Some unfortunately have neither the training
nor adequate outlets to handle the sudden surge.
The result is often damage to organism and
environment, a common happening in youth, one
overcome by time and education.
There however we run into the fact that the
student most in need of help is also the most
likely to reject present educational approaches.
We therefore researched the past 10,000 years
to determine how our predecessors handled
similar situations, and modernized their procedures.
THE HEROIC SOLUTION
This is a trumpet-call to return to the “dreams”
of childhood, days of glory and love, when
the world was a shining place and we
were always the good guys on the White Horse.
Whenever the law breaks down and lawlessness
uprises, when the poor and weak are oppressed
and righteous effort finds no reward, then
the heroes arise, radiant men and women, who
stride the Earth like Gods and by their coming
bring about the Golden Age.
Theirs is an all-out life with trumpets
blowing and all flags flying. Theirs is the day
when once again the kings ride forth to see
that justice rules the land.
ACCORDING TO THE OLD TRADITION
The proper place for the training of heroes
is a large, warm, open family of aristocrats.
(aristo crat: one who rules by doing things
best.) Only such a family provides the love
and support a hero needs to do his job.
Only there can he acquire the noble bearing
and manner to do it successfully.
This family is of royal blood. Their title
comes from another kingdom. Their laws are
not of this world. They are unwritten, but
where others change and bend, these do not.
The single purpose of a royal family is to lead
the way and show the proper application of the
Law. Thus it is in the Old Tradition of the Day
of the Kings.
THE HERO’S DISCIPLINE
A culture-hero swears a silent vow to save
all living beings.
His training is to acquire and perfect the
skills he needs.
To save means to physically rescue, help,
heal, feed, shelter, teach and love;
all living beings means no exceptions.
There are no fixed teachings, no written-down
rules or regulations.
There are no lengthy abstentions and purifications.
There is no eradicating, suppressing or killing.
The only discipline is self-respect and love.
THE NATURE AND FUNCTION OF HEROES
A culture-hero is a well-trained being
who lives a nobly beautiful life in
a highly visible way. He is widely
respected, admired, loved, imitated.
He does what he does with style and grace,
breaking new paths. By his personal
appearance, he encourages millions to raise
their eyes to the light, and the sound
of his voice urges them to change their ways.
When nine such heroes work in harmony,
they produce sufficient energy to raise
the consciousness of all mankind to
the same high level.
THE NINE AND THE LAW
The «Nine” are a board with one chairman and
eight members (representing eight essential aspects
of consciousness: views, intention, speech,
action, livelihood, effort, understanding,
meditation). Full consciousness arises when
all work in harmony.
Many have chosen to be on this board, but only
nine are called at a time, taking a turn, sharing
the load. The Chief collects their thoughts
and speaks them with a single mind and voice.
His words are the Law, the free and perfect
will of all.
The Law describes what each man would do if
he could do precisely what he wanted to. It
describes the way things always work, the way
to go. It is as if each man had said, «Thus
it would be if I were King!” Therefore we
call it the Law.
FREE WILL IN ACTION
A fully conscious person reacts at all times
spontaneously and successfully to the need
of the situation. He acts out his perfect
free will. The result is a constant increase
in confidence, energy and skill.
This is the power which encourages heroes
to proceed and in proceeding changes them
until they become a flesh-and-blood manifestation
of that power. There is a built-in fail-
safe device: it only works if you use it
for the benefit of others.
The life of heroes is a constant process
of reincarnation upward. It is a life of
constant exploration, of learning and teaching
the use of ever-higher powers of consciousness.
This Good Life is the highest form of life
style in this world, the crown of the natural
process of evolution.
It results in a constantly increasing flow
of energy which maintains our minds and bodies
in eternal health and youth. We are the Immortals.
We die when we choose.
THE GREAT WORK
Immortality is a gift of grace. It comes
when you don’t expect it. It always comes
when have prepared to accept it.
The gift of immortality is given to all who
have the will and wit to discover its purpose.
That purpose cannot be discovered by logic
or reason. It can only be imparted by another
The purpose of Immortals is to show the world
the sight of immortality, to open men’s minds
to the concept, to give them the sound, taste,
smell and feel of it. That is the only purpose.
There is no second.
Every action (thought, word or deed)
has an immediate effect on the flow
of energy through and around us.
Some actions stimulate and smoothe
it, others disturb and reduce it.
The piled-up consequences of many small
habitual actions, or the weight of a
single heavy one, produce such dramatic
changes in the flow that we feel reborn
in a higher or lower world.
No man can foretell when his present
incarnation ends. His actions determine
where he will be reborn.
THE GOOD LIFE
A fire is extinguished by denying it fuel.
It may flicker and flare, but soon goes out.
Pain and misery are extinguished when we
adopt intelligent, enlightened attitudes
and behavior, and drop the old, confused,
This method of changing one’s life is called
«the Good Life». It encourages the student
by giving him a personal experience of the
highest state of worldly existence. It brings
peace of mind, opens his eyes, and leads to
the full development of the powers of consciousness.
The Good Life is based on six virtues: generosity,
ethics and good manners, patience, perseverance,
cool-headedness and clear-sightedness. Each
evolves out of the other and is perfected in turn
on ever higher levels.
THE 10 FETTERS
There are 10 hang-ups, mental attitudes, which
always break the flow of energy just when it
gets going strong. They lead to unhealthy
actions and chain the student to a miserable,
frustrated, low-level existence, which is why
they are called “The 10 Fetters”.
1) Belief in a permanent, unchangeable ego.
2) Doubt and vacillation.
3) Belief in rites and rituals.
4) Craving for sensual gratification.
5) Ill-will and anger.
6)Desire for physical satisfaction without
7)Desire for emotional satisfaction and never
mind the consequences.
9)Desire for salvation without personal effort.
THE 10 UNHEALTHY ACTIONS
All unhealthy actions can be classified in
3 groups under 10 headings:
1) MURDER for whatever reason.
2) SOWING DISCORD by defamation,
3) HURTFUL WORDS, malicious gossip.
4) WICKEDNESS, wishing someone dead.
5) THEFT by violence, stealth, commercial
6)SEXUAL MISDEMEANOR, sex with fear
7) GREED, possessivenes, stinginess, hoarding.
8)LIES, pretenses, cop-outs, rationalizations.
9)IDLE TALK, half-baked intellectualizarions
purposeless and plain idle chatter.
10)ERRONEOUS VIEWS, that the truth depends on
how you define it.
(Throug erroneous views you grow dull and gather no crops at all.)
THE LOWER WORLDS
As a result of ill-will and hostility, we land
in a world of hell where we suffer without knowing
how to end it. Incarnations are short, unpleasant
and seem to last forever. Food is bitter and coarse.
As a result of selfishness, we are cut off from
the main-stream of social energy. We are reborn
in a world of hungry spirits where we wander
restlessly, seeking satisfaction now here, now
there, and always fail.
As a result of ignorance and confusion, we are
reborn on the animal-level. We live slovenly,
irresponsible lives which offend others. Like
beaten animals we cower before those who love
and want to help us, and despise those who need
our love and help.
Each age has its depressant. Ours is confusion
caused by lies and over-communication (idle
A liar confuses himself. First he denies
the mistake he’s made, then he admits it but
claims he did it on purpose, then he blames
others for being against him. He gets confused
about what was said, demands precise examples,
argues about them, grows insolent (pretends to
be insulted), and stalks off. He deceives
himself into believing he deceives others.
As a result, unhealthy conditions go uncorrected.
The consequences of generations of lies are
piling up. Their weight is heavy, reincarnations
are coming faster. The cultivation of virtues reverses
the downward trend.
GENEROSITY OF SPIRIT
Generosity is the first step. The gift
must be pure (trade, cash or service),
so must the motive (no thought of personal
gain or [tax-Jexemption), so must the
A noble, steady benefactor arouses love,
and other benevolent energies are directed
toward him. This ever-growing return-flow
raises his consciousness to the highest level
and gives him a glimpse of the word reserved
THE SLAVES OF THE EGO
The power of spiritual generosily cannot
be calculated. It turns young men-about-
town into titans in the world and raises
creators to the level of Gods in their heaven.
Thinking this is the end of the line, they
grow careless and forget what got them up
here; they turn deaf to the urgings of
the Teacher and neglect good manners and
ethics. These are the slaves of the ego.
Lacking direction, they bicker and squabble
with others over technical details. Or
they lose themselves in a frustrating search
for ever-new kicks. They make no move to end
THE SLAVE OF THE LAMP
The slave of the ego is a worthless servant.
He can’t be trusted, is lazy and truculent,
or he’s forever sulking in a dungeon, feeling
The Slave of the Lamp is a loving genie. His
gifts appear by magic, without fuss or fanfare,
whenever needed. He gladly, happily serves
those he loves. Their wishes are his dreams,
their happiness his joy. He walks in peace
When the Lamp of Truth is lit, subtle energies
move. Ego-constrictions dissolve and the false
moon of pride is melted.
THE DAWN OF UNDERSTANDING
On the sixth day of service (2-3 weeks), we realize
there is indeed no permanent ego to be changed
but a set of characteristic behavior-patterns.
Now great understanding dawns:
Living the Good Life ends doubt and pain.
2.It consists of substituting unselfish,
loving actions for selfish, hostile ones.
It really works; we’ve just successfully
4.The reward is peace, and other benefits.
Here there is great joy; the end of our efforts
is in sight, the welfare of all beings is safe-
guarded, fresh pain cannot arise. The rest is
a matter of quickly perfeeting the mental attitudes
and way of life which brought us here.
THE WHOLE MAN
The whole man is no saint on a private pillar,
He does not deny his perfection by self-denial.
He is a whole man in and of this world.
To all beings he is father and mother,
to all beings sister and brother,
to all beings play-fellow and lover.
This is the whole man. This is the whole woman.
THE TEACHING OF THE HOLY KINGS
Here begins the Teaching of the Holy Kings.
It is the largest vehicle, carrying all
It is the essence of 10 reliably joyful
and loving Teachings and includes all other
Teachings of similar essence.
This King is a lord in the world. His home
is his court. Being the best of the family
he holds the title in his name. Being the
wisest and most loving, the others gladly
subject themselves to his love and rule.
He teaches self-discipline and rules by love.
His is the all-seeing eye of the universe.
He guards the Rainbow Bridge. Truth and peace
are his messengers, the Law his armor.
He is a constant and abundant source of energy,
a noble sun providing light and heat for all
who revolve in orbit around his seat.
THE TRANSMISSION OF THE TEACHING
Imagine if you will a being, whose every
action is benevolent, wise and full of joy,
a being such as you’d very much like to be.
Try to sense the presence, the feeling of
power and love which streams from this being.
Hear in your ear, “Have no fear! I guide
and protect you. Come all you tried
and hungry! I give. I love.»
Use the same approach as you walk your way,
dealing with people; let the same spirit
motivate all your thoughts, words and deeds.
Be wise and cool, be generous, open and loving.
Maintain yourself in this spirit until you become
a flesh-and-blood manifestation of the Lord
HIS NAME AND FUNCTION

His name describes his function.

the benefit of man, he is the Noblest and
the Best of Men.

the energy of the universe.
His direction is the direction of the flow,
His desire is for peace and love.
Therefore his word is Law.
THE WORD OF THE LORD
In my presence let there be no anger, fear,
hunger or suffering. Let there be no sliding
back to such low states.
In my presence all men have the same golden
color, and no one can tell the difference
between gods and men, except loosely speaking.
In my presence all men are free, independent
and equal. They understand the Law of Love
and accept it as their own.
In my presence let all see the Law in action
and hear it sung and spoken in a thousand voices.
In my presence let all men recognize themselves.
THE LAW OF LOVE
“It is human nature at all times to give
health and joy to the body, mind and
consciousness of another.»
We demonstrate this Law by our life in this world.
We teach this Law by our words and deeds.
We are the Law.
THE ROYAL PHILOSOPHY
The universe appears to be a flow of something
moving, energy. Within the flow arise and fall
many forms, of one substance and nature, all
of them individual.
Their lives are short, their bodies fragile.
Many appear to be in pain. We pick up their
suffering; it disturbs us and moves us to passion.
With the eye of love we see their true perfection
and how in ignorance and folly they defile it.
By skillful devices we teach them what to do instead.
Their joy is our reward.
We do all this so that we may return to our play.
THE PLAY OF THE LOVERS
In the play of the Lovers mercy falls
like gentle rain, softening the ground,
nourishing the growth.
Human life is short, and there’s eternity.
“We seek no vengeance,» sigh the Lovers.
They sense the pain of those who hurt them
They speak of immortality to high and low,
old and young, wise and foolish, using ever
the same voice, showing no favor whatever.
“The cause of pain is the causing of pain.
The cause of love is the causing of love,
The cause of immortality is the saving of lives.»
THE CLEAR CHANNEL
This meditation is called, «The Stations
Visualize the infinite space around you,
its suns and galaxies.
Become aware of the infinite consciousness
which is aware of this infinite space.
Realize that both the consciousness and
the space are part of that infinite flow
of energy we call “the universe”.
Trying to comprehend the infinite creativity
of the flow you soon pass beyond the ultimate
limits of perception.
THE LORD’S PRAYER
Our Father who art in Heaven,
hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done,
on Earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread and
forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those
who trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil, for Thine
is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory
