TMV08 Ilness and Death 1080

8.7 Heaven and Hell

After death people enter the vital world, but those who do good go to paradise?

Where is your paradise? Who has taught you that? They have spoken to you of heaven and hell and purgatory? It is generally what religious priests say to the faithful to encourage them to do good. For it is a notorious fact that life is not more easy for the good than for the wicked; usually it is the contrary: the wicked succeed better than the good!

8.6 The Domain of Death

The psychic being comes with a definite purpose to go through a set of experiences and to learn and make progress. Then if you leave before its work is finished it will have to come back to do it again under much more difficult conditions.

8.5 Make a Beautiful Thing of Death

… when one has found one’s psychic being — immediately, you understand — one has the sense of immortality. And one knows that what goes out or what comes in is just a matter of convenience: “I am not going to weep over a pair of shoes I put aside when it is full of holes! When my pair of shoes is worn out I cast it aside, and I do not weep.”

8.4 Causes of Illness

Sweet Mother, if someone falls seriously ill, is this a purely physical phenomenon or is it a difficulty in his spiritual life?

That depends on the person! If it is someone who is doing yoga, it is quite obviously a difficulty in his spiritual life. If it is somebody who is not at all engaged in yoga […] it is an ordinary accident … The outer phenomena may be similar, but the inner causes are absolutely different. No two illnesses are alike

8.3 Microbes and Illness

The normal human condition is a state filled with apprehensions and fears; if you observe your mind deeply for ten minutes, you will find that for nine out of the ten it is full of fears…. And even if by discipline and effort you have liberated your mind and your vital of apprehension and fear, it is more difficult to convince the body.

8.2 Illness Comes from Outside

What is to be wondered at is the unconsciousness with which men go through life; they don’t know how to live, there’s not one in a million who knows how to live, and they live like that somehow or other, limping along …

8.1 Illness Is a Disequilibrium

An illness is simply, always, …. a disequilibrium among the various functions, a disequilibrium among the forces. This is not to say that there are no microbes: there are, there are many more microbes than are known now. But it is not because of that you are ill, for they are always there.

TMV07 the Hostile Forces

7.6 Resisting Hostile Forces

Will a time come when the hostile forces will be there no longer?

When their presence in the world is no more of any use, they will disappear. Their action is used as a testing process, so that nothing may be forgotten, nothing left out in the work of transformation.

7.5 Hostile Possession and the Psychic Being

When we are afraid, is that due to the mischief of these beings?

Yes, my child …. It is through fear that they hold human beings. First of all, they create a movement of fear; the movement of fear weakens you, then hands you over little by little into their power.

7.4 The Four Great Asuras

Would it not be better to change them [the hostile beings]?

… After forty years of sustained effort I have found out that it is absolutely impossible to change anyone unless in truth he wants it sincerely.

7.3 Vital Incarnations

The wisest way with these beings is to cut off all connection and have nothing to do with them […] To hope to transform them, as some people do, is a vain illusion; for they do not want to be transformed.

TMV07 the Hostile Forces

7.2 Possession by Hostile Beings

I must tell you that the origin of these beings is prior to that of the gods; they are the first emanations, the first individual beings of the universe; so they cannot be got rid of so easily, by winning one war. As long as they are necessary for the universal evolution they will exist. The day they lose their utility, they will be converted or will disappear.

TMV07 the Hostile Forces

7.1 The Hostile or Adverse Forces

“For you must take care of one thing, you must not speak of “hostile forces” when thinking of forces which are hostile to us. These forces are not hostile to human beings, to their quietude or happiness, they are hostile to the divine Work.”

TMV06

6.4 Love

Love is universal and eternal; it is always manifesting itself and always identical in its essence. And it is a Divine Force; for the distortions we see in its apparent workings belong to its instruments. Love does not manifest in human beings alone; it is everywhere. Its movement is there in plants, perhaps in the very stones
