Spring talk (Friday March 20th)
Spring is a time for the resurrection of new life, where the invisible seeds in the soil reappear as new growth for the nourishment of humanity. It is time for the force of expansion to take over from the state of standing still, it is time for us to rise from sleep and go to work.
Our work on the material level provides food and shelter for us and our mental activities provide food for thought and understanding to enable us to create a better world. The work we do needs to facilitate an expansion of our conscious awareness of life and its greater purpose. Through our work we need to cultivate a more diverse and deeper understanding of ourselves, others and the groups that we form. This applies to all levels and kinds of work that we are involved with.
It is not enough to only expand our wealth, land, bank balance or the size of your body. It is not enough to be externally good looking or brave, these two conditions need to be expressed internally in the way that we confront and use our mind. The thought always comes before the event, the mind needs to control the animal impulses from within.
