"If you want to bring a change into your life, it will never be easy. What is then the purpose? The purpose is that you make progress, that you come close to yourself and do things that are important for you. You must be able to concentrate on yourself and look at yourself. You must live and dare to live from the depth of your own heart, of your own desires.

If you think, “I know myself,” but do nothing coming from out of your own self, then you are mistaken. Then you don’t know who you are, and this is always the case: People too often think they know themselves. But when it comes down to it, they don’t really know who they are, don’t know where they stand and don’t know what they are doing."

Master Morya sheds light on all kinds of subjects, spiritual and mondaine, in a wonderfully natural and practical way, enlightening your mind and warming your heart as you read.

Read some excerpts below, and a list of all chapters and titles in the book.

Extracts from Morya Wisdom 4: Trust in yourself

MMVery many people appear self-assured on the outside but are not so confident on the inside and are very unsure of where they stand in life. They may be fantastically rich and healthy, they may be as beautiful or handsome as can be, but inside they are being torn apart by a nagging doubt which keeps them from knowing how to go on.

An end to uncertainty

Don’t let doubt wear you down. Instead of ignoring it, give it your attention. Look at it straight on from all sides, dare to really see this doubt. If you ignore your doubt you will be giving yourself a false sense of security, which is not the intention. You must find a real security and it is the doubt that will bring you to it. If you keep doubting about the deepness of your life, then you should look at the general thread of your being. Look at what you are actually doing and what is really important. Once you arrive at the real values, you can put an end to uncertainty, but not before. You must look at all aspects of your life and also at the lives of others.

MMWhen you pray you must have faith and with that faith you can progress. You must not be in a hurry. You should never be hurried. If you want to achieve something in your life you must do things in accordance with time. You need patience; you should advance slowly so you can reach the deepness. If you are impatient to understand these things then you won’t ever understand them. You need to go slowly. You need to assimilate things, to ponder over them, listen to them a second time, observe, examine them from all sides and so forth. You should follow these things carefully in order to progress. If a seed could grow into a tree within a couple of seconds then your thoughts could also become a reality in a matter of seconds, but this is impossible.

MMShould you continue with this exercise for some months and years you would eventually find you have nothing left to think about, you would experience a freedom in regard to your thinking and discover you can live without thoughts and that this saves you a whole lot of time. For a great deal of energy goes into thinking, which, more often than not, is useless.

People can get so lost in their thoughts that they never find their way out, which is a reason they feel so fatigued. Because, though the mind is constantly active, the effect these thoughts produce is often warped, distorted and tedious. Thinking can be tedious for you and for others. It can be the reason for your irksome attitude and the reason things don’t seem to go well in your life, as if everything is always going against you, giving you the feeling that life is always a struggle. The mind is responsible for very many of the things that go wrong on this Earth and it should be able to attain stillness and peace. This exercise can help you to find this stillness and peace, and you might find it very quickly or it could take you a long time, because some people have very tenacious minds.

The mind is like the moon

One’s thinking nearly never calms down and yet this is vital. It should attain a state in which it becomes like the moon, that within itself it resembles the moon: without major variations, without atmosphere, without whatever else, only reflecting the glow of the most High. The mind is capable of this; within itself it can bear the power of the sun, it can bear the power of the intuition, the power of the soul. But for this it must be calm and silent, like the moon (...)

MMYou should be able to look at people - at what they’re doing and saying - and be at peace with that, while still taking note of the differences. This will show you the point of tension in existence. Every element in this life, each element of existence - a plant, an animal, a being, a person, everything - has an own energy, its own course of life and own endeavours. Life has a very great purpose and a person can learn to understand this purpose in his own life. To the extent he understands his own goal, he will notice that it differs from the other’s goal.

You must not want to achieve peace by striving towards the same goal, but by paying attention to the points of difference and accepting these points and investigating them. When you look at people, try to bring together their different elements and different visions. Whatever differences there are should be clearly understandable to everyone involved. Then you should be able to talk to each other by bringing the points of differences to the fore and saying, “This is what I am busy with, with what are you busy?” Then, when you let the other express him­self and be himself, you will have a better understanding of their viewpoint. This calls for a big effort on your part, because you must learn to empathize.

(...) Peace never just happens. It has to be searched for; it has to be worked out. If you want to come to an agreement, to create harmony, then you must be able to see the points of difference and to accept them.

MMOne important thing in life is that you must dare to come up for yourself, dare to be yourself, dare to value yourself. In other words, learn to trust your self.

Coming from God and returning to God

That you can trust your self is a very important fact you should realize. The self is something truly wonderful, it is a divine manifestation on this Earth. You must see yourself as coming from God and returning to God. Once you can gain sight of this great journey in your own existence, you will understand that others can also be engaged in this, even if they don’t express it with the same words as you. An enormous movement is inherent in this journey, in the whole of humankind, in the entirety of existence, in your own life. You should realize this despite the fact you are busy with banalities in your everyday life. You should be able to see the major thread of existence, to pose the very great question about the reason, the point of existence.
