Always be faithful, true, pure and kind!




For next time please write on the following topic: “What am I thinking of now?”


This “now” is always there: it has no beginning and no end. We are always in the present, it is always “now”. Contemporary people are afraid to share freely their opinion on different topics. Why? – Because they are afraid of making a bad impression. Maybe their thoughts are not in agreement with other people’s opinions or they have rather extreme opinions and ideas. If someone has shared a secret with them, again they are afraid to express an opinion in order not to reveal the secret. The human mind is a station through which letters and telegrams are transmitted from one person to another, from one country to another or even from the Earth to the Heavens and back. Therefore, if the human mind as a station has received some oral or written communication in the form of a letter or a telegram, it has no right to transmit what it has heard, it has no right to reveal other people’s secrets. A person has the right to share only that which relates to himself. Whatever doesn’t relate to him personally is a state secret or a secret of Nature. No one has the right to reveal Nature’s secrets. When somebody breaks this law, Nature hides the keys to its stations for him. What should a person talk about – what he has already done or what he is thinking of doing? There is a point in talking about what he has already done because he has already achieved a result or gained some experience. However there is no point in talking about what he is thinking of doing if he hasn’t done it yet. He doesn’t know if the opportunity will come to actually do what he is thinking of doing.


There are three ways to reveal what a person has done: by saying exactly what happened as it happened, by exaggerating or by diminishing things. Each fact needs to be revealed exactly the way it happened. If you want to say something about your friend, you should reveal one of his main traits which distinguishes him from other people. You could talk about one of the main traits of his mind, his heart or his will. What can you say about his mind? If you say that he has a bright mind, this is a common trait. Even if you say that he is a poet, a musician or an artist, this is also general information. You need to reveal the characteristics of his poetry which distinguish him from any other poet. There are many poets, musicians and artists but the art of each of these people has some individual, specific characteristics. In the same way we could ask the question: what is the difference between a human and an animal? Animals have negative characteristics. Because they have lived in unfavourable conditions, animals have developed a number of negative traits: doubt, suspicion, fear, envy, jealousy, etc. These traits are present in all animals – from the smallest ones to humans. Therefore all negative traits in humans are there because of the time they spent in the animal kingdom. They are remnants of the animals. They represent the animal nature in humans. Not all feelings and actions of animals are an expression of weakness. For example fear, which is highly developed in animals, serves even in humans as a protective tool against the dangers in life. Who doesn’t run away when he sees a bear? Who doesn’t hide from Nature’s elements? However brave a person may be, he will surely flinch when faced with an unexpected event, some danger or Nature’s elements.


Once upon a time there lived on Earth a man who didn’t know fear. He started a journey in order to discover fear and find out what people are afraid of. He travelled through seas and oceans, he battled the waves but didn’t experience any fear. He climbed mountain peaks and was attacked by wild beasts, but still didn’t experience any fear. He fought against the elements, he fought against illnesses and still didn’t get to know fear. One day he sat in a field to have breakfast. He opened his bag, took out his bread and a mouse jumped out of the bag together with the bread. He shuddered and dropped the bread out of his hand. After that he said: “I realized what fear is.” What does this example show? – That the reason for fear can be very small. A person can become scared of something small. He doesn’t need to encounter some large beast in order to get scared. A small mouse can cause fear in a person. Bulgarians express this idea through the following saying: “The small stone tipped the cart over.” When it comes to human psychological life, the same saying can be translated as follows: “The smallest negative thought is able to change a person’s disposition.” The small stone which tips the cart over could be a negative word, a negative thought or a negative feeling. However in reality the small stone can’t tip the cart over.


I will now ask you the following: what is the most important question for today? Why did Mendeleev place gold in the first group of elements in his table? What was the characteristic according to which he placed it in the first group?


Answer: According to its valence.


What is the valence of gold?


Answer: First and third valence.


What is the difference between tin and lead?


Answer: They belong to the same group but they differ in atomic structure. Tin is lighter than lead. Their difference in atomic weight gives them different physical characteristics. However from a chemical point of view the two metals have something in common which is why they have been placed in the same group of elements.


If we compare gold to tin and lead, gold is considered a precious metal, whereas tin and lead are non-precious. Gold has become a precious metal owing to its long period of evolution. Because of the nobility and intelligence of its atoms, it is of a higher evolutionary rank compared to all non-precious metals. However there is a difference between the different atoms of gold as well. For example the gold atoms present in plants differ from those present in animals. The latter, on the other hand, are different from those present in the human organism. Therefore in the same way that different gold atoms have different levels of intelligence, depending on where they are, the atoms of other elements also differ in their levels of intelligence. The higher evolutionary rank a certain form has, the more intelligent are the atoms that it is made of. In order to reach a higher level of development, the atom needs to go through all four kingdoms: the kingdom of minerals, plants, animals and humans. Depending on which atoms of the elements enter the human organism and which kingdom they come from, they induce a number of harmonious or disharmonious states in it. The more stable the atoms of the elements which make up the human organism, the better the qualities that they endow the person’s character with.


So each element brings positive and negative traits into the human organism. A conscious person, however, uses the positive traits, the positive influences of elements and closes himself for the negative ones. You will ask yourselves what negative influence gold could possibly have. Gold develops greed in people. If a person strives towards gold simply as a metal of high value, he becomes greedy. The idea enters his mind that one cannot live without money. If he internalizes this idea and makes it his flesh and blood, it will be hard for him to free himself from it. It is better for him to have more organic gold rather than external, material gold. If one doesn’t get addicted to gold, it is good to have at least one gold coin and transfer it from hand to hand in order to absorb some of the gold’s energy. Paper banknotes in whatever amounts cannot have the same effect as that of a gold coin. Paper money is dead. It doesn’t elevate a person, it makes him petty. When analyzing blood chemists have found a certain amount of organically connected metals, but they haven’t found any gold. This doesn’t mean that human blood contains no organic gold. It exists, but they haven’t been able to find it. Why? – Because gold influences the higher manifestations of human character. Therefore it exists in a special etheric, very fine state of matter which is hard to analyze. Gold contains a great amount of stored energy in a condensed form. A person who understands the laws of alchemy can dissolve this energy, thin it out and use the hidden power of the gold in his organism. Therefore it is right for people to love gold but they are unable to use its energies.


For now people make use of gold insofar as they need it in their physical, material life. In order to make proper use of the energies of the elements which make up his organism, a person needs to work on himself, on his character. By working consciously on himself, he will change his understanding of things and will start living according to the laws of Living Mindful Nature. In this way he will free himself from the contradictions which the whole of humanity encounters. For as long as you encounter contradictions you cannot solve, you will always have a scraped skin. This shouldn’t frighten you. What is so frightening about somebody getting the skin of his hand scraped? If it gets scraped you will anoint it with some olive oil, bandage it and let it heal. When you let it heal in peace, the wound will get covered with a scab which will fall on its own without you picking at it. New healthy skin will appear under it. Therefore, if you want your wound to heal easily, let Nature work on it. It takes care of all violations of its laws. It is capable of correcting everything itself. For as long as a person keeps picking at his own wounds, i.e. at his shortcomings, he will always complicate matters and create a big ulcer out of his small wound. So if you see a wound in yourself, take a look at it, bandage it and say to yourself: “It will heal.” Don’t fight your shortcomings, but develop your positive qualities instead. Make use of them and set your faith on the powers of Mindful Nature. If you want to correct your shortcomings, give an impulse to the conscious life inside you. Your shortcomings are not only yours. They are shortcomings of the whole of humanity, which it has acquired in the space of thousands and millions of years, since the beginning of life. Since you know this, you shouldn’t be embarrassed about your shortcomings but simply work on correcting them.




Now I would like you to draw a small circle and follow its course of movement. Let’s mark this circle with the letter A (fig.1). Without getting larger the circle A can move to the right in order to come to point B. From there it can move up towards point C. So in the physical world the circle can move from one place to another and change its direction. The movement of circle A represents a movement of thought. When changing its place, however, thought gets transformed as well. Which thoughts can be transformed: the good ones or the bad ones? Can a bad thought be transformed into a good one? A bad thought can be replaced by a good one, but it cannot be transformed into a good one. The same can be said about human negative feelings. Positive and negative feelings in humans are defined by the external stimuli in him. For example, if they put heated coal on somebody’s hand, he will experience pain which will invoke an unpleasant, painful feeling in him. If, however, they point a soft light beam to his eye, he will experience a pleasant joyful feeling.


As you can see, the external stimulus awakens both pleasant and unpleasant feelings in a person but feelings and thoughts themselves can be neither good nor bad. When you remove the stimulus which provokes the unpleasant feelings, they also disappear with it. If a speck of dust enters someone’s eye it will cause him pain which in its turn will arouse an unpleasant, painful feeling in him. What does this show? – It shows that the speck of dust as a stimulus hasn’t ended up in the right place. It shouldn’t enter the human eye but go into space instead, among the water drops, and bring rain. The rain will be beneficial for the plants. One needs to be aware of the fact that the dust doesn’t enter one’s body by accident, he has attracted it himself. In the same way you attract your thoughts from space. You believe that some thoughts are good and others are bad. However thoughts which are bad for you are good and necessary to Nature. If it didn’t need them, it wouldn’t allow them to exist. It allows them to, therefore it believes that they contain elements which are necessary to life in its entirety. Imagine that one of you has a father who is a chemist; he has his own laboratory with different acids and poisonous substances and he has strictly forbidden you to touch any of the bottles containing the acids. One day you enter your father’s laboratory without his permission and start opening one bottle after another and trying their contents. Shortly after, you start complaining of an upset stomach. You go and ask your father why your tongue and mouth have been burnt and why your stomach is upset. You father realizes immediately that you have been to the laboratory and you have touched the acids. He says: “Since you have broken my rules you will bear the consequences of this violation.”


When the son wants to enter his father’s laboratory, or to put it in a broader context – the laboratory of Living Nature, he needs to connect with it and together they can start studying its elements and laws. The same applies to human thoughts and feelings. When you come to a certain thought or a feeling, don’t be in a hurry to internalize them before examining first their qualities and the laws they are subjected to. What are the distinguishing characteristics of a good thought? – A good thought needs to move. Moreover its movement needs to be strictly determined – it needs to move around the Sun. In this case the Sun is a centre which the thought constantly moves around. In the same way that the Earth revolves constantly around its axis as well as around the Sun, a good thought also needs to maintain these two centers in its movement. The two centers are two poles which the thought moves between. For as long as a thought doesn’t move between two poles, it is there as pure potential only. Once it starts moving between two poles, it gets into a kinetic state, i.e. it starts manifesting.


It isn’t only thoughts that have two states – a kinetic one and a potential one, but so do humans as well. For as long as he or she is awake, with a conscious mind, a person chronicles everything which is happening around him; once he falls asleep, he can’t chronicle anything. He doesn’t know what is happening around him or on the Earth. There are beings who chronicle everything that happens on Earth. However this requires a continuity of consciousness. A day will come when humans will also remain constantly aware. Then they will know what is being done anywhere anytime. At their current level of development humans are incapable of perceiving everything that happens on the Earth because they wouldn’t be able to handle that. That is why when a person passes through dangerous places, his consciousness darkens; once he crosses over the dangerous zone and comes out in a beautiful place, his consciousness brightens again. There are dark zones for each person’s consciousness which he inevitably has to go through. Everyone goes through a circle of consciousness every day by alternately going down to hell and ascending back to heaven and by alternately scooping something up and filling himself or pouring something out and emptying himself. He scoops up pure water from above and mud and slime from below. That is the only explanation why sometimes a human is as good as an angel, while at other times he is bad, angry, dissatisfied with himself and everybody else. He doesn’t believe anybody, doesn’t believe himself either. A person can be doubtful, he may not believe but only on a given occasion, not throughout his life. Someone doubts that he is able to learn his lesson. However this refers only to a given lesson, not to all lessons. Moreover, if he can’t learn it at a given moment, he will learn it at some other point in time.


Everybody talks about real things but if you ask them which human wish is real, they can’t give an answer. Imagine that you are travelling on a hot summer day and you haven’t drunk any water for three days in a row. Your throat is dry, your legs are shaking from the thirst, you can barely move. However you meet someone and ask him if he knows where one can find water. At that moment you aren’t interested in anything but the water. Your thought of water and your need to drink some is the only real thing for you. The person you meet tells you that there is a pure spring half a kilometer away. You get happy immediately, your face lightens up and you start going faster. So only what one needs at a given moment is real from him. Once he gets to the real, a person develops a special opinion about things. There is no special opinion when it comes to real things, however. Once a person achieves the real which he has striven towards, then he starts making choices. If it is a mountain, then he starts choosing between this or that pathway, between sitting on this or that particular place. Therefore a person can have a special opinion only after he has satisfied a major need of his.


So what are the most important elements that a person needs? – The most important and necessary elements for humans are water, air, fire and earth. Why do people remain dissatisfied even after having these elements? Remaining satisfied while your wishes haven’t been satisfied is an art. What would be better: to satisfy human wishes or not to satisfy them? How many wishes should be fulfilled out of every one hundred? Have you calculated how many of your wishes have been fulfilled out of every one hundred? For example, a child’s wish to grow up has come true but has it grown as much as it wanted to? Everybody has had the wish to become smart, beautiful, strong, but has their wish been realized the way they dreamed of it? Why can’t a person realize a wish the way he or she wants to? – Because he doesn’t have the appropriate organs for that. How can a person play the violin if he has only one finger on each hand? He can still play something, produce some noise, but not the way he would like to. When a person wants to achieve something great, he needs to have five fingers on each hand, not only one. Can a person who has one finger on each hand compete against somebody who has five? Such a competition is impossible. If a person decides to enter such a competition, he will inevitably fail and then say that he is very unfortunate in life, that Nature hasn’t gifted him the way it should have, etc. It isn’t Nature’s fault but that of the human who hasn’t worked on himself in order to develop all five fingers of the hand. The fingers of the hand represent human conscious powers that have manifested. People have had to work consciously on themselves for thousands and millions of years before their fingers and toes grew.


One of the theories of contemporary scientists claims allegorically that the possibilities for development of the human soul are hidden in the different forms of life which have been displayed in show cases in the spiritual world. Before coming down to the Earth the soul walks around these showcases and chooses its own costume, i.e. a piece of clothing for its life according to its preference. There is an endless number of forms there, starting from the smallest and coming to the biggest ones. Once it puts on one of these forms, the soul immediately begins to feel restricted and starts kicking. It keeps kicking until it frees itself from the form it has put on. After it takes off the form, the soul returns to the invisible world, but now it is rich with experience. So the choice of clothing that the soul puts on determines what kind of person it will become. If he was dissatisfied with his clothing, the next time he comes to Earth the person will carefully think about what clothing he should put on. The same law applies to human thoughts and feelings. Whatever thought a person chooses as a basis for his life, that is what he will become. This thought exerts a certain influence on him. You can’t avoid the influence of your thoughts on you, nor their consequences. Therefore, when a person chooses a form, a piece of clothing to put on, it needs to be beautiful, ideological, because it contains the possibilities for the expression of his spirit and his mind, his soul and his heart. The more beautiful and ideological the human form, the more favourable the conditions for its development.


As disciples you are required to live without doubts and hesitation. In order not to doubt, your consciousness needs to be awake and your thought needs to be sober. You will only be able to make use of life under these conditions. Now you aim to achieve something big, to become a well-regarded person, without realizing that Nature has in mind for you something better than what you are striving towards. What more could you wish for than to be able to take walks to the Sun, to Jupiter, Venus or some other planet? Nature has in store for each of you a free ticket for such a walk. When a person falls asleep, he receives a free ticket for a trip somewhere close. He travels through forests and mountains, seas and oceans, he meets people, joins schools, takes exams, etc. When he gets up in the morning he is either pleased or displeased with what he has seen in his sleep. How much more beautiful planetary trips are!


Now I will recommend to you the law of Love as a method of working, of applying things. Through this law you can come into contact with all your advanced brothers from the invisible world and use their knowledge and experience. If you can’t do that, you should at least get in touch with your classmates from the country. Each of you should write to them at least two or three letters a month and share the main thoughts from the lectures and talks that you listen to here. For next time I would like everyone to write down ten important questions that occupy his mind at the moment.


Always be faithful, true, pure and kind!
