Teacher: “Human life is a constant struggle between the material and spiritual impulses. However, these two kinds of impulses don't have to be at odds with each other. The problem is that mortals in this world have created a lot of false needs that distract them from their main goal, which is to attain a higher level of communion with the Celestial Father that inhabits their own heart.

“The basic needs of the human being – without which a normal live could not be possible – can be counted on the fingers of one hand. Michael in his life had very few things and lived the most plentiful life ever in the history of this world. Don't let yourself be fooled by the false needs promoted by the media. All the material things you need to achieve your highest potential in this life you already have. You don't need anything else.

“The problem is that a lot of people in this world can't even satisfy their most basic needs. While a few have more than what they really need, hundreds die every day due to the inability to satisfy their basic needs. But the real price of these unsatisfied needs is that so many people never even consider the spiritual side of life because their physical suffering caused by their unmet needs prevents them from thinking about something else. How could a child think about spiritual progress when he is afraid for his life? How could a mother search for spiritual peace while watching her children die of hunger?

“A life without spiritual growth is a wasted opportunity. It is like not ever really living. Those who take more than what they need and use their resources to control others are creating a heavy load for themselves. They are not only damaging the material life of those who suffer by their policies and their actions, they are also stealing the opportunity of a plentiful life with possibilities of spiritual growth from those they keep marginalized. This is akin to murder.

“Only love will overcome the selfish impulses that rise from time to time in the human heart. You, the one who reads these words, might be one of the few fortunate ones that have more than what you need. Don't forget about your siblings who suffer. There is a lot you can do to improve the life of those around you, starting with finding within yourself the Light of our Father that desires to shine to others through you.”

Subject: “Limited Time.”

Received by Oscar.

Teacher: “What are the most important things in life?  Is it physical condition and appearance?  Rest and entertainment?  Many of these things are necessary but not always indispensable.  Furthermore, many of them do not require a great deal of time.

“In reality, to achieve balance in a human life requires for you to determine where to invest the limited amount of time available.  You must balance your time for your material needs, your social needs, and your spiritual needs.  Certainly, many times you might have to make a decision and postpone the satisfaction of a need for the benefit of another.  The best way to do this is by evaluating the payoff.

“It is the satisfaction of the spiritual needs – soul growth – which brings the highest payoff to he human being.  The benefits derived from the achievements in this area go well beyond mortal life of that single individual.  It is in the activities oriented to soul growth that you should invest most of your time.  These activities should have priority over the others.  Besides the purely spiritual benefits, there are other ‘side effects’ that spill into other areas of human life.

“By growing spiritually, you also develop a calmness that allows you to face with courage any situation that may arise.  Also, you develop the character to take on any problem and assume an attitude of victory in the face of the regular defeats in life.  Your relationship with your siblings in this world becomes deeper and more satisfactory.  Your mind gets more relaxed, alert, and your imagination increases greatly.  Even your physical body becomes healthier and the bodily systems work more efficiently.  It is indeed such a waste that many humans don’t dedicate more time to spiritual growth and the exploration of the divine Spark within.

“The best tool you have for spiritual growth is Stillness.  When practiced with the supreme desire of finding the Father within yourself, the benefits are enhanced and the results, even when they might not be evident for you, come faster.”
