<1>The first seal (ichng-s.gif (891 bytes)) or truth, is the necessity of awakening the spiritual forces, which are latent in the human. This can be done through many techniques, teachings, knowledge, and all other techniques or exercises which help in awakening the spiritual forces. The most important of all is the Grace of the Lord (and spiritual teacher, which should be the same). <2>Also other things, such as contemplation, meditation, prayer, exercises, etc., are important.

<3>These techniques and teachings, however, are not the ultimate in the sense of guiding a person to Pure Consciousness. Further knowledge and steps are necessary which will be described in the next six seals. <4>Following only this seal can result in escapism, which God does not like. <5>This seal can be called the Mystical Paths.

<6>The next step is to realize that a proper environment is necessary in which the physiological and safety needs of the person are provided and the disturbing things (physically, mentally, and spiritually) are eliminated. <7>This sentient environment is needed before a person is able to start to meditate and/or practice the techniques to awaken his spiritual forces, or even to start to read, have time and enough concentration to become familiar with these things.

<8>So a proper environment is a must and <9>this can start from creating a Kingdom of Heaven in one's home, then community, city, country, and eventually the world. <10>Then the Kingdom of Heaven (kohoe-s.gif (879 bytes)) On Earth will be established (realized) and all can pursue physical, mental, and spiritual progress.

<11>To create such an environment, sacrifice is necessary. Greed and self-centeredness are the cause of all problems of humanity. So only by understanding this truth and creating the spirit of sacrifice -- not being self-centered (cross-s.gif (869 bytes)) -- can the Kingdom of God be recognized (kohoe-s.gif (879 bytes)) on earth as it is in heaven.

<12>However, sacrificing and selflessness should start from the top of the society (the leaders). Otherwise the mass will be exploited through their sacrifices and a few will take advantage of these sacrifices for their own selfish desires.

<13>To be attached to one's merits or good actions (sacrifices) is an obstacle in spiritual progress. So good should be done and the results should be surrendered to God or thrown away to the universe to be used for the progress of others (islms15c.jpg (912 bytes)).

<14>Even greater than surrendering is submission to Him. That is, to become a channel for His Divine actions to be done through us. <15>In surrendering, there is still an "I" which exists as one who surrenders, and the surrenderer is different from the one who is surrendered to. <16>But when a person becomes a channel for His Divine actions, then no separation exists and the surrenderer, the thing being surrendered, and the one being surrendered to, become one. <17>This state is called the state of renunciation, when the "I" and all things related to it are no more.

<18>Also, in order for a person to free himself from all narrowness of the mind and bondage related to it, he should become a universalist (baha-s.gif (97 bytes)). Any "ism" other than universalism will result in narrowness, and this again will bring suffering. So the ideal is to work and help to create the Kingdom of Heaven so that the whole universe can progress toward the goal, not just a few or a small portion of the universe. <19>Otherwise we are not following the Will of God and our awakened spiritual forces, sacrifices, and submission are narrow, so they will bring suffering, because they are not according to the spirit of God, which is to see the whole universe reach Pure Consciousness.




6th150-c.gif (2849 bytes)


<20>With awakening the spiritual forces (ichng-s.gif (891 bytes)), longing for a spiritual environment (kohoe-s.gif (879 bytes)), and selflessly (cross-s.gif (869 bytes)) working to create such an environment, and by being detached from the results of these endeavors and becoming submissive to Him (islms15c.jpg (912 bytes)), with a universal point of view (baha-s.gif (97 bytes)) for all, a person can be(come) a dynamic being, free from any narrowness of mind or bondages from his actions. <21>With the use of the acquired powers through his spiritual progress, he will work to establish the Kingdom of God in the universe and help others also to understand this true path of salvation.

<22>Such a person can be called a Paravipra (kohw-s.gif (904 bytes)). Only these people can be(come) the true leaders of humanity, and by their examples help all to progress and reach Pure Consciousness. Otherwise there will always be suffering, strife, and class wars.
