<4>Lesson: In order to reach
or become a son of
the only requirement is to overcome the external world, and it
is up to the person to overcome. No man can overcome it
for him. He might be helped and the path be shown to him, but it
is he who has to make the effort to overcome. Through
these efforts His
Grace will be won.
<5>These are a few examples
of the lessons which are given throughout creation and history.
The point is that these lessons should be understood, learned,
and implemented in human life.
<6>These happenings are not
to be used against any race or people, and also no one should
create a false superiority feeling because of them. <7>All
God and none is greater
or lower. Only those who reach higher consciousness are
greater in the sense that they can help others to reach higher
consciousness with a greater capacity.
<8>All of history and our
writings are just lessons. They are not to argue about and
to create strife. This truth should not be lost sight of,
otherwise the writings will become a source of confusion for
those who do not expand their
minds and open their
hearts to these Truths.
<9>However, not to argue
does not mean not to question or ask or
search or to accept the
teachings blindly. On the contrary, it is the duty of each
individual to ask, search, question, and come to understand the
truth of them in the deeper levels of his or her being.
<10>As long as the thirst for knowledge is not
satisfied, he should not stop asking.
<11>Only through this
process can man know the truth in the deepest level, face the
reality, overcome, and go toward perfection. Then he can
rejoice in the meaning of the teachings, see the perfection of
God, destroy the
confusion between religions, create great devotion for
God, and rejoice in
<12>Therefore, "All are
lessons to learn, not to argue, but rejoice."
