The Authority of Consciousness

At one of my meditation discourses I said, “Priests of religious institutions are the most fearful and irreligious people in the world.” Someone from the audience got really offended by my statement, and shouted, “By what authority do you claim that?” “By the authority of consciousness,” I said. “That’s not high enough,” he shouted back.

Greed is the mind function

Greed is an extension of fear. Are you in fear of God? Roman Catholics define this fear as one of the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit. The Love of God and the Fear of God are two of Islam’s foundations. In Judaism, having the fear of God is most often considered to be a […]
