First. I quote Vernon Howard on this:
“Procrastination is illogical from every viewpoint. It is like the man who wanted to cross the stream, so he sat on the bank to wait for all the water to run by.”
It is obvious. With positivity things become possible. So. Positivity is the outcome of right mental movement. It does not mean that you have to be positive about bad things, but it means that you will contribute positively to make things better.
So. You must have healthy positive energy and confidence, not insane negativity that drags other people under and steals all their time, but energy that gives other people energy. If you know you are a complaining person, not happy with anything, constantly feeding of the positivity of others, being like a black hole, not learning not wanting to find positivity then we will still help you and your children through politics, but quite frankly, we are not interested in having you inside of our movement.
First solve your mental disorder, come in balance, maybe by just snapping out of it, maybe by reading about how to get happy and positive, maybe through meditation, and then come back when you are ready! If you are a positive person full of positive energy, then feel ready to read further! If you know you are not ready then please leave Intelligent Union!
2. Think correctly – Be awake – No blind belief
Your mind must not only be positive all in fluffy pink clouds of delusion. No. It must be be in order and ready to grow. This does not mean that you cannot have a personal belief in God, but it means that you are no longer using any type of religion as your base for finding the truth. If “God” for you is truth, pure love and unity then this will work fine, but if it is a religious text written by people long ago, then forget it!
Gautama Buddha, after becoming awake, could clearly not have been a follower of fantasies and superstitious practices of Buddhism and this quote from Gautama Buddha proves it:
Do not go by revelation;
Do not go by tradition;
Do not go by hearsay;
Do not go on the authority of sacred texts;
Do not go on the grounds of pure logic;
Do not go by a view that seems rational;
Do not go by reflecting on mere appearances;
Do not go along with a considered view because you agree with it;
Do not go along on the grounds that the person is competent;
Do not go along because “the recluse is our teacher.”
Kalamas, when you yourselves know: These things are unwholesome, these things are blameworthy; these things are censured by the wise; and when undertaken and observed, these things lead to harm and ill, abandon them…
Kalamas, when you know for yourselves: These are wholesome; these things are not blameworthy; these things are praised by the wise; undertaken and observed, these things lead to benefit and happiness, having undertaken them, abide in them.
It clearly means you cannot be a blind follower of almost anything, not even science or Intelligent Union and absolutely not a blind follower of me, the leader in the party. No. You must love the truth and you must consequently love to be wrong in order to be able to be a member of Intelligent Union.
So, in fact, most of the ones who join this party must first drop almost all ideas about everything and begin new. You must now investigate things BEFORE you have opinions about them!
I repeat it because it is important. You must now begin to investigate things BEFORE you have opinions about them!!!! This means that when you are wrong you must change and when Intelligent Union is wrong we must change and if one day the Intelligent Union does not change when it is wrong you must leave it and make a better Intelligent Union just like I left many political movement not wanting to see the truth as it is !!!
That’s right. Do absolutely not work with people living in delusion! You do not want to have endless discussions with people who have beliefs based on no substance. Work together with people with a scientific mind as well as an open awake mind that can see possibilities!
We do not claim that science or people claiming to be scientist or people with an open awake mind are always correct. No. Science and awake people are being proven wrong again and again. This is a natural part of this process. All is likely or less likely in our quest for the truth.
New scientific evidence and awake peoples theories has been replaced by evidence that clarifies and brings us closer to the truth. What we all agree on is that basic scientific method, open awake minds and deliberative discourse is essential. We must all be open for change if proven wrong.
To further explain what it is to think correctly give you a quote from Jiddu Krishnamurti:
“If the psychological house is in disorder, if what you are is in disorder, what is the point of meditating? It is just an escape. It leads to all kinds of illusions. “
I re-write Krishnamurti’s text in a more positive way:
If your mind is in order there is real reason to meditate or do introspection. Meditation is a way to see the truth. It leads us to better analysis and more likely conclusions.
So, you must, as a member, first study some psychology and some philosophy in order to be able to think correctly and you can not be a blind follower of any religion, ideology or political movement. If you are, then move away from it all for a while and do meditation in solitude!
3. Meditation / Introspection
First. Yoga is not meditation. Yoga is preparing the body for meditation. Your body is the vessel of your mind so yoga can be very beneficial, but acrobatic extremes are naturally pointless or even dangerous for your happiness and your health, but clearly you must meditate or do introspection often to become intelligent.
Meditation and introspection has many benefits for a mind in order. It helps you to find new creative solutions to unresolved problems. It helps you to see the holistic perspective more clearly. It helps you to be relaxed and find pure love inside. It helps you to see things in a long-term perspective and it reduces the ego and give rise to altruistic action.
Meditation might even bring you in direct contact with God or at least with the emotional experience of something that can be labeled as “God”, “pure love”, “unity” or “higher truth”, no matter if this sensation created Universe or not.
Personally I have experienced God and wishes coming true asking Universe for help, but my own experience could also be explained by psychological terms like “euphoria”, “self-fulfilling prophecy”, “goal orientation” just as well as by other terms found in “new age” books.
“What is important in meditation is the quality of the mind and the heart.”
…and what I do believe Jiddu Krishnamurti means with “heart” is the emotional awareness and the feeling of oneness that we call “Pure Love” or altruism.
4. Pure Love
You must have a pure love for yourself, but also for nature, animals and the future generations. Pure love is not passionate love, it is not clinging, wanting, grabbing like a nervous monkey.
“Even the love of a mother for her child is not love. If the mother really loved her child, do you think the world would be like this? She would see that he had the right food, the right education, that he was sensitive, that he appreciated beauty, that he was not ambitious, greedy, envious. So the mother, however much she may think she loves her child, does not love the child.”
To make this clear. If you love nature, animals, your own child and the future generations you will contribute actively to create a world in balance. You will not only put garbage in the right container fooling yourself that you did enough and at the same time ignore other important scientific facts and other important actions.
You will definitely not belong to a hypocritical religion overpopulating the world with more of the same kind of idiots praising the actions of for example Jesus and then doing the opposite of his teachings. No, my friend, if you claim you know what love is, you will do your best to help all children of the world long-term to become more intelligent, healthy and in balance with nature.
If you are not a hypocrite, then you will do your best to make all children all have good education and thereby making them free thinkers and you will do your best to make them develop kindness and you will make sure that they all appreciate beauty and that they find a sense of oneness and generosity towards each other and with such a pure love in you action will come automatically.
So, if you enter the party, and actually find that you are doing all the steps above but not doing any pure loving long-term actions then at least one of them is not right.
“One can go on endlessly reading, discussing, piling up words upon words, without ever doing anything about it. It is like a man that is always ploughing, never sowing, and therefore never reaping.”
– So if you join and then make no effort on a daily basis then quickly make sure you do it right and find it! Find the positivity, be awake and open minded, do meditation, find pure love and then act on it! Reach out in all ways imaginable to reach the end goal! Be outrageous if needed but do try new things if other thing does not work! Have no shame or regrets! The only one to be ashamed is the one who does not try his or her very best in every moment of action! Act with full power and confidence because you know what the end result is if we don’t succeed and you know what a ecological paradise we can create if we do succeed.
