A new spirituality is being born
Just as no one has the right to discriminate against others for their religion or their non-religiousness, we affirm our right to proclaim our spirituality and our belief in immortality and the sacred.
Our spirituality is not the spirituality of superstition, it is not the spirituality of intolerance, it is not the spirituality of dogma, it is not the spirituality of religious violence. It is the spirituality that has awakened from its deep sleep to nurture the best aspirations of the human being.
We consider the human being to be the highest value—above money, the State, religion, the models, and social systems.
We promote liberty of thought.
We promote equal rights and equal opportunities for all human beings.
We recognize and applaud diversity in customs and cultures.
We oppose all discrimination.
We consecrate just resistance against all forms of violence: physical, economic, racial, religious, sexual, psychological, and moral.
1. Here it tells how the non-meaning of life can be converted into meaning and fulfillment.
2. Here are joy, love of the body, of nature, of humanity, and of the spirit.
3. Here sacrifices, feelings of guilt, and threats from the beyond are rejected.
4. Here the worldly is not opposed to the eternal.
5. Here it tells of the inner revelation at which all arrive who carefully meditate in humble search.
V. Intimation of Meaning
The third day:
1. At times I have anticipated events that later took place.
2. At times I have grasped a distant thought.
3. At times I have described places I have never been.
4. At times I have recounted exactly what took place in my absence.
5. At times an immense joy has surprised me.
6. At times total comprehension has overwhelmed me.
7. At times a perfect communion with everything has filled me with ecstasy.
8. At times I have broken through my reveries and seen reality in a new way.
9. At times I have seen something for the first time yet recognized it as though I had seen it before.
And all this has made me think.
It is clear to me that without these experiences I could not have emerged from the non-meaning.
If you believe that your life will end with death, what you think, feel, and do have no meaning. Everything will end with incoherence and disintegration.
If you believe that your life does not end with death, you must bring into agreement what you think with what you feel and what you do. Everything needs to advance toward coherence, toward unity.
If you are indifferent to the pain and suffering of others, none of the help that you ask for can be justified.
If you are not indifferent to the pain and suffering of others, you must bring your thoughts, feelings and actions into agreement in order to help them.
Learn to treat others in the way that you want to be treated.
Learn to surpass pain and suffering in yourself, in those close to you, and in human society.
Learn to resist the violence that is within you and outside of you.
Learn to recognize the signs of the sacred within you and around you.
Do not let your life pass by without asking yourself, “Who am I?”
Do not let your life pass by without asking yourself, “Where am I going?”
Do not let a day pass by without giving an answer to yourself about who you are.
Do not let a day pass by without giving an answer to yourself about where you are going.
Do not let a great joy pass without giving thanks within yourself.
Do not let a great sadness pass without reclaiming from your interior the joy that you have placed there.
Do not imagine that you are alone in your village, in your city, on Earth, or among the infinite worlds.
Do not imagine that you are enchained to this time and this space.
Do not imagine that upon your death loneliness will become eternal.
