Gururaj_espejo_recorte_2Even on the spiritual path there cannot be self-satisfaction because the forces within us, the very forces that constitute the ego—the three gunas—are forever in turbulence, and it is this very turbulence that pushes one on and on and on.

People today are operating more on the level of the mind and less on the level of the heart. That is where our teaching differs from most of the systems in the world; with our practices there is a simultaneous development of the mind and heart.

Brahmacharya is the most misinterpreted word that has ever been given out to this world. Many people feel that Brahmacharya means celibacy—complete continence, non-indulgence in sex.

As we said before, as above, so below. What is below is above. It is just a different level of existence, and man can live at a higher level of consciousness.

What alters is you, yourself.
