Tablet Seven

<1>As he started to reach a higher consciousness, he became a more sentient (satvic) being. Not only did his happiness, feeling of belonging to the universe and surroundings, increase, but also he started to realize more about himself and the forces which were within.

<2>He realized the spiritual power (raja guna, prana), the intelligence (satva guna), and the crudifying force (tama guna) within, and through meditating on them, he realized them on an even deeper level.

<3>He also realized the dual nature of his being as "positive and negative" (ichvs15c.gif (941 bytes)). <4>These two polarities can be found universally in all of nature.

<5>Also because God has both polarities as positive and negative, they balance each other and He becomes neutral. <6>However, God in Its purest form -- beyond the influence of the creative forces (gunas) -- is Pure Consciousness. In this state He just "IS" - Formless, Nameless, Invisible, and Eternal, neither male nor female.

<7>However, this unit consciousness had not yet mastered the power of the tama guna completely. So still there were times when he would feel its influence and would go from happiness to helplessness, up and down.

 <8>Through these struggles he also realized how his surrounding environment affected him. When there is a greater amount of the tama force (impure) present in the environment, the unhappiness, fear, and all bad propensities because of the tama guna (lower nature) increase. So he avoided such an environment and tried to keep himself away from such influences. <9>He realized how necessary a sentient (proper) environment is for spiritual progress.

<10>In this state he realized how many other unit consciousnesses around him were lost and needed help, and if he could aid others to reach higher consciousness, it would be possible to create a better environment.

<11>Therefore, he tried to help them. With this, he realized that even a greater happiness was created in him, because in the process of helping others (sacrifice, not being self-centered), he would forget about himself. <12>This resulted in negation of his ego and the flow of God's Spirit (Grace) through him.

<13>That is the key to happiness and joy, to forget the self for a greater task.  It is to help others to reach higher consciousness and create an environment (kohoe-s.gif (879 bytes)) that allows all to reach the highest level of realization possible. So the feeling of self-centeredness is forgotten and the cause of unhappiness will vanish.

<14>The source of happiness is not to think about the self all the time but to forget it by sacrificing to help others to grow.

<15>So again, he started even a greater struggle in overcoming the egotism and self-centeredness (mastering the power of the tama guna). With this process, by gaining wisdom to do sacrifice (from knowledge but not from ignorance or passion) and by helping others through more intensity and sacrifice, he came to a higher consciousness.  Then even a greater desire to help others was created.  <16>Eventually by becoming other-centered instead of being self-centered, he overcame the selfishness and self-centeredness, and with this he overcame his lower nature and entered the higher self (was born again).

<17>Although he had overcome his lower nature and eagerly was sacrificing to help others, still he had not mastered the power of the tama guna completely. There were times that the discouragement would come to him and he would wonder why, with all his sacrificing for others, they were not progressing and there was not a great result. <18>Or he might have thought how wonderful he was in sacrificing so much for others.

<19>However, later on a greater realization came to him, that being attached to the result of one's action is a hindrance in spiritual progress. He offered the result of his actions to God.

<20>Therefore, he shattered all bondages which would stand in his way, slow down his progress, and bind him. Now he would do the actions with the highest possible efficiency but would throw the result away (to the universe). <21>With this, there would be no attachment to the result.

<22>Therefore, first of all there would be no anxiety if the result did not turn out to be the best, because he had tried his utmost but if the result was not ideal, he was not attached to it. <23>Secondly, there would be no ego built up of "How great I am that I am doing so much good."

<24>He realized also, that submission to God is even greater than surrendering. In submissionGod is the One doing the actions through him.  He is only a channel for those Divine actions. <25>In this case no "I" is left but "He." So he would radiate God's Grace as a channel.
