We are children of the divine light and pure beings from the kingdom of God. Over time, we have gradually become prisoners of our ego and this has prevented us from growing courageous, strong, healthy, wealthy and happy.
The aim of this book is to uncover, in form of a brief summary, misunderstandings and erroneous thinking and to clarify their correlation in an easily comprehensible way. This is why the explanations focus on the most important aspects. Sometimes I had to quote examples to make particular correlations more understandable, but in other cases, I deliberate did not, so that readers would be free to recognize examples from their own lives.
I have chosen to omit certain topics from this book, for the simple reason that they warrant a book of their own – they are so complex that I would like to deal with them separately. They include God, esotericism, astrology, self-discipline, wealth, relationships, sexuality, happiness and similar essential subjects. Most dear to my heart is the subject of astrology, the reason being that for many years now, I have developed and utilized my own karma-astrology, which I call “Karmalogy”. The book about Karmalogy will provide wide-ranging education about true astrology and its true meaning. It will give unprecedented insights about human destiny and uncover the hidden interconnectedness of life.
I would ask you to put what I say in this book to the test and only take on what you yourself have experienced to be true. Whatever we come to understand through our own endeavours and power will more easily enter our consciousness and more deeply touch our soul.
Truth remains a very personal experience. Every person is wholly responsible for his or her own thoughts, words, actions and feelings. This responsibility is NOT transferable, however much we would like to make someone else responsible for our own mishaps, because that would be so much more convenient and comfortable than having to acknowledge our own mistakes. We all have to work out for ourselves what we will embrace and what we will reject.
I would recommend that you read this book several times, especially those topics that you find incomprehensible, unclear or even contradictory. It takes time for consciousness to expand. It is entirely possible that you can access a deeper understanding when you read it a second time. This happens because we constantly expand our consciousness, an automatic process to do with all we learn and experience and the insights we acquire in the course of time. The results are a heightened awareness and a sharper perception.
The more consciousness matures, the more it can absorb and process.
I would ask you not to generalize the content of this book. When I make a statement about people in a certain context, this does not imply that all people in that situation will be or act that way. I would not want to irritate you by having to repeat this every time I raise a point. The points I raise are to do with deficiencies that I believe stem from the individual, collective and global ego. These conditions can be found everywhere, but not everyone participates in them. Some people walk the path of selflessness.
As a rule, we only apply a generalization to others if we ourselves are that way inclined or if someone’s comments make us feel as though we are being treated unfairly.
Even though I reject a great deal of what we humans do, this does not mean that I reject the people doing it. There is a general misconception that causes us humans to identify with our egoistic actions. This is why we take offence when someone criticizes our actions.
I would ask you not to take the content of this book personally, especially if you should feel criticized or take offence. I do not judge my fellow humans. I merely reject their egoistic actions.
Truth requires no justification.
Rather, we humans require enlightenment.
At this stage I would like to point out the following: I do not belong to any religion or any church. I believe in God, our Heavenly Father, and Christ, our brother and saviour. So, whenever I mention God or Christ in this book, it has no connection with a religion, the bible or the church and should not be read as such. I am neither a member of any political party nor a member of any sect, religious community or similar. I have no interest in evangelizing people and steering them into a particular direction, nor do I regard this as my purpose in life: in fact, I would regard this as manipulation. My aim is to educate people and to uncover misunderstandings and erroneous thinking. God’s truth is free and independent of human-made endeavours such as the economy, politics, religion, science or philosophy. It is and always will be on offer to us and we are free to accept or reject it. What a person believes in remains his or her individual choice. This is a freedom granted by God and must not be curtailed, manipulated or exploited by man. True faith can easily be determined by finding the answers to two questions. Firstly: who benefits from people adhering to this faith? Secondly: do the leaders of this faith practise what they preach? We recognize trees by their leaves and fruit, and people by their deeds, not their words! We can therefore determine whether a faith is true or false, egoistic or selfless, man-made or of God, by checking whether it serves a small group of egoists dreaming of money and power, or whether it serves all humankind and is aimed towards selfless and communal – in other words, divine – goals. True faith sets people free from the individual, collective and global ego and leads them towards unity, equality, fraternity, liberty and justice. If you choose to follow men, you have not yet recognized the truth. Because God is the Way and the Truth and the Life. Despite wrongdoing on an unimaginable scale being committed in His name, He is untouched by and independent of the works of man.
The content of this book will only be understandable to you if you comprehend its meaning: overcoming the ego by dealing with events in a factual, honest and impersonal manner.
I have taken great care to position the various subjects in a logical sequence. However, this was not always possible or even sensible, and I sometimes decided to abandon logical sequencing all together. I am doing this with the intention of enabling you to obtain certain insights by looking at different contexts in different parts of the book, and from different perspectives, and for you to experience the so-called aha effect. This is the only way to ensure that an insight, its application, effects and consequences are carried through into everyday life.
I would be very happy if this book would make a lot of readers think, because that would mean that we are recovering one of our most precious abilities, one we had as children but were trained out of and lost as adults: the ability to ask questions!
We need to learn to question things again, with honesty and sincerity, so that we can track down our erroneous thinking and false values. When we do not question, when we are not observant, truthful and sincere, we will believe anything anyone tells us. We are constantly being bombarded by the media with all sorts of ideals and dream images. When we obtain our values and ideals from outside of our own heart, we will sooner or later end up suffering from disorientation of the spirit. Human beings find true values inside of their own hearts, where their conscience beats strongly and their longing for truth, justice and love resides.
When you stop asking questions, you stop searching for the truth.
When you stop searching for the truth, you stop living.
Art or artificial
Art and artists are subject to a popular misconception. Many meaningless items are sold under the heading of “modern art”, items neither the artists nor their audiences can relate to.
What exactly is art?
Art is a way of utilizing images, sound, colour, feelings and emotions to liberate individual, collective and global consciousness from the ego and to ennoble it.
Ennoblement of consciousness means that people turn away from evil and instead focus on what is good.
Ennoblement means increasingly thinking, saying, doing, wanting and giving more good things.
True art is thought provoking; it awakens the soul and sharpens perception.
Artificial art, by contrast, is nothing but an egocentric, egoistic self-promotion and self-adulation. While self-promoting artists are on stage to draw all attention to themselves, true artists attempt to direct attention to the content of their art.
Sadly, most artists misuse their artistic skills to be noticed, appreciated and loved by their audience. There is nothing wrong with wanting to be loved – in fact, it is good, because everything in all infinity wants to be loved, to receive love. Every person, every animal, every plant, every stone wants to be loved. The problem arises when we misuse our skills to please others. This is when we fall short of our true task, which is to make those around us think, to animate their spirit.
When artists misuse their skills for their own egoistic purposes, they become thieves of energy. They live out their self-promotion, and in return, the audience supplies them with energy. As a result, many artists are addicted to performing and can no longer survive without the stage and their audience.
This exchange of energy, or rather, robbing of energy, is why some members of the audience collapse and lose consciousness. This is how it works: people attending a concert (usually children or young persons) dream of fame, wealth, recognition and similar – all things they do not yet have. They would like to be able to sing and dance perfectly, so they would be admired. The artist up on stage has these abilities, can dance and sing, at least as far as the fans are concerned.
As a result, concertgoers can save themselves the trouble of having to spend years learning to sing and dance. Instead, they simply buy a ticket and admire the so-called artist up on the stage. In addition, many girls in puberty are longing for their dream man, and being rendered faint and swooning when faced with the almighty artist on stage is practically pre-programmed. This is why so many girls and young women cry or collapse when they attend a concert and see their idol. What they see in the artist is the apparent perfection that they themselves would love to possess, but are too lazy to strive for. It is a kind of symbiosis. The artist enables his audience to feel good. In exchange, the audience gives him energy and money. This is neither about love nor art. It is simply a double-exchange of thievery.
Of course this is not meant to vilify artistic endeavours and concerts. It is a wonderful experience to admire an artist and to attend and enjoy his concerts and appearances. Luckily, not all artists are into self-promoting – there are true artists who touch our hearts. We need to learn to not switch off our common sense and to always remain discerning and alert, because only then can we consciously enjoy everything and really feel good about it. So we need to stop projecting our dreams of happiness, success and fame onto particular musicians, actors and other artists and instead go our own way, and discover and act on the genius within ourselves. Then our dreams will not peter out at the end of the concert, but will endure throughout our lives.
Feeling inferior makes us long for a role model, or makes us want to be a role model for others. We should not pursue either goal. But when others act in good ways, we might integrate these into our own behaviour and accept them as good examples.
An intelligent person does not look to other people for orientation, but only to that which is true, good and beautiful – namely, God.
