We must enable God to be manifested through us
I AM Confucius, having come to you through this Messenger.
I have come to give you an exhortation concerning the science of Divine Wisdom. Many hundreds of years have passed since the time of my last incarnation on Earth. I am happy to have this opportunity to repeat the words of my Teaching to this appreciative audience again.
It is always more valuable to listen to the words from the primary source than to trust some interpretation of those words made by people who think they have achieved a great level in the knowing of the Truth; however, they are just dwelling at the bottom of the peak of Divine Wisdom, and the vanity of life constantly diverts their attention and does not let them make a step in the direction of this peak.
I believe that this thing will not happen to those who are reading these lines. And you will be able to divert some time from the illusion surrounding you, and concentrate on the intransient Truths that are not connected with your time, your country or your environment you belong to.
Try to concentrate on your heart - the beats of your heart. Listen to your breath. Breathe in… Breathe out...
The functioning of your heart and your breath is not in any way connected with the country you live in. It is not connected with the role you perform in life either.
The same can be said about the Divine Truth. It exists on its own and does not depend on your consciousness and thoughts.
Then what is the sense of your living, if this world can do perfectly well without you? Did you ask such a question of yourself? Have you ever asked yourself what the purpose of your existence is?
I suppose such a question has arisen at least one time for each of you. For many people this question arose so persistently and so often that the search for the meaning of life for them literally turned into the very meaning of life.
You are right, my beloved, it is a worthy task to understand why you are living and why everything surrounding you is in existence.
At the time of my incarnation, I was literally obsessed by this question. There were days when I could not find a place for myself, trying to answer this question, again and again.
I was a believer, and I adhered to the system of world outlook that was accepted in the society surrounding me, until I realized that this system of world outlook had been created by people who were similar to me. As I grew older, I began to understand that I was not perfect, and therefore some of my thoughts were imperfect even before I pronounced them. Why was I imperfect? And why couldn’t I overcome this imperfection in me irrespective of all my efforts?
Are these questions familiar to you? Have you asked yourself similar questions?
In the course of time, the answer to this question became the basis of the system of teaching that I was giving to people who wanted to learn from me.
I clearly understood that inside of me, there was a Higher, more perfect part of myself. And I could commune with this part of myself. However, I also realized that it was only me who prevented this Higher part of myself from manifesting. It was not anybody outside of myself, but only me.
I believed that all living creatures including myself were created in the image of the One who created this world and who, by His position, was immeasurably higher than us. We are all interconnected with Him and constitute an indissoluble Unity. And just as I had my Higher Self within me, the Creator of the Universe also has the Higher and the lower part of Himself. And the lower part of Himself is me in incarnation. It is me in incarnation and all the other living creatures in incarnation, as well as the entire Earth that I saw, as far as my eyes could see.
All of us are Him in incarnation.
He is living in us, and He is creating and cognizing through us. He is self-actualizing through us and through all living creatures.
All of us are His cells and blood vessels. We are a part of His body. And we are all interconnected with Him and with each of us.
Anything separating us from each other and from Unity with Him needs to be overcome.
Therefore, I taught and I continue teaching now only one thing. I invite each of you to take up the work upon those parts of you yourself that prevent you from being united with the Creator, upon the part of yourself that separates you from the state of complete unity with God, the Creator, Atman, or Higher Reason. It does not matter what you call that being, a part of who you are in reality.
You cannot do another person’s job. You cannot make another person do anything for you, or rather, you can do it, but for this, you will have to commit violence. You will have to force someone to work for you, or to obey your orders. It does not matter whether you do it by brute force or through the force of the law written by you.
However, you can try to make your heart breathe in your body, and your lungs pump blood through your blood vessels.
Your attempt will fail. However, if we appeal to history, we will see that all of history is composed of moments when someone tried to force others to obey their orders. Hence, wars have been waged and much injustice has been manifested in this world.
And the basis of this injustice has always been the desire of an individual to do something his own way.
Thus, we have returned to the talk about our own imperfections.
When I was young, I really believed that I could inspire the world to change simply with the help of my personal example and by means of my personal persuasion. I wasted great efforts and energy trying to convince people how they should act and behave.
I was lacking the strength to persuade people to act in the way that I believed to be reasonable.
Then I began acting together with the people who accepted my system of persuasion. However, my strength was still lacking.
Believe me, I wasted a lot of my strength trying to persuade people that their way of life was not right, and that they need to just listen to me on how to live their lives.
Years passed, then decades went by but the situation in the world didn’t change, no matter how hard I tried or how much effort I made.
I was only a tiny grain of sand, a small cell in the organism of the Universe. And I was trying to persuade the entire Universe to live according to my laws.
Many decades later, I finally realized that the only person on Earth hindering me was I myself. That it was my excessive vainglory and my excessive confidence in the fact that I knew the entire Truth, and was able to teach this Truth to others.
My external personality tried to make the whole Universe live according to my law, instead of obeying the law governing in this Universe.
I realized a basic Truth. And I must say to you that it was worth spending my whole life to realize this Truth.
It is useless and pointless to set our own laws in the world we are living in. We must obey the Law that was created at the moment of the birth of this Universe, and that is the basis of this Universe.
The Law states that we must let go of the desire to manifest ourselves, our ego in our lives; and we must do our best to let God manifest Himself through us.
Only then will we manage to restore our Unity. Then we will be able to participate in the realization of the plan of the Creator of this Universe.
This is the task and the job that each person must fulfill. There is no person in the entire Universe who can perform this task for you. That is why this job is so important. And the fulfillment of this work is the meaning of your life, which you are seeking outside of yourselves, but cannot find.
I am offering you the fruit of my thinking during my earthly life. However, I cannot make you eat this fruit. You must do it yourselves.
Nobody outside of you can do the job for you.
I am leaving you. I do hope that I have given your thoughts the right direction.
I AM Confucius.
