Sample text

Wenn du geliebt wirst, ist keine Unsicherheit da. Wo man liebt, da löst sich alle Furcht auf. Wo 39 Das Licht der Bewußtheit man liebt, gibt es keine Zukunft und keine Vergangenheit, dann ist dieser Moment vollauf genug, dann ist dieser Augenblick die Ewigkeit. Du wirst akzeptiert! Also braucht man sich nicht um die Zukunft zu sorgen, um das, was vielleicht morgen passieren könnte — wo man liebt, gibt es kein Morgen. Aber wo keine Liebe ist, taucht das Morgen auf. Was wird werden? Mach ja viel Geld, denn auf niemanden ist Verlaß!

Das alles sind Zustände, und derjenige, der sich zwischen diesen Zuständen umherbewegt, bist du. Aber dieses Du ist das Vierte – und dieses Vierte ist es, was ihr „die Seele" nennt. Dieses Vierte ist das, was ihr „göttlich" nennt, dieses Vierte ist das, was ihr „das Unsterbliche" nennt, das „ewige Leben". Wisse im Wachen, Schlafen oder Träumen, daß du Licht bist. Dies ist eine wunderbare Technik. Aber setzt beim Wachzustand an. Und vergeßt nicht: Erst wenn andere es bemerken, hat sich der Erfolg für euch eingestellt.

Ein abstraktes Denken, spekulatives Denken, ist ein Denken ad infinitum, bis in alle Ewigkeit. Man kann es genießen, man kann die Reise genießen, aber sie ist ohne Ziel. Religion und Naturwissenschaft sind sich in dieser Hinsicht also ähnlich – beide halten sich ans Experiment. Natürlich geht das religiöse Experiment tiefer als das wissenschaftliche, denn in der Wissenschaft ist der Experimentierende selbst nicht involviert. Er arbeitet mit Werkzeugen, arbeitet mit Dingen, arbeitet mit Objekten; er hält Abstand, er bleibt außerhalb des Experiments.
