PL 120 The Individual and Humanity
The more each one of you pursues this
path in the manner you are doing, being forever more determined to overcome resistance to facing the truth in yourself, the
more do you contribute to the whole of mankind's reaching this phase when problems
can really be resolved by adequate means, not by temporary, shallow ones. It may be fruitful if you think of your personal problems and how
they run parallel to world history, to the development of mankind as a whole. If we receive such examples from some
participants, this may prove of great value, my friends.
PL 93 Main Image, Repressed Needs Reviews concepts on Images, Repressed Needs, and Defensive Systems. "Resistance to change is one of the greatest hurdles to be overcome. It
can be rationalized in many ways, but whatever is the conscious "reason" for such resistance, deep down you all
battle against giving up the "glory" of your idealized self. That, especially, you fear above and beyond anything
PL 94 The True Self vs.
Superficial Personality Layers The real self is actually so much nearer to you than you realize. In fact, there are areas in your life where you do act out of your real self, but you do not
know it because it is such a natural process. As yet, you cannot distinguish between
this kind of action and the action coming forth from the superficial layers.
PL 11 Self-Knowledge; Spiritual Guidance
For happiness does not depend on outer circumstances or other people, no matter how convinced the spiritually
immature person may be of this fallacy. The spiritually mature person knows that. He knows that he himself is solely responsible
for his happiness or unhappiness. He knows that he himself is capable of creating a happy life, not only within himself first,
but as an inevitable result of this, also without.
55 Three Cosmic Princples: Expansion, Restriction, Stasis These
three principles exist in the entire universe. They exist in nature. They govern and influence everything that has ever been
created and ever will be created. There is no branch of human science where these principles cannot be found. And needless
to say, they penetrate and form the human soul as well. In other words, they exist on all levels and all forms, from the subtlest
to the coarsest. All three principles must work together harmoniously, must sustain,
complement, and further one another if the person is harmonious.
PL 133 Love: Not a Commandment, but Spontaneous Soul Movement of the Inner Self All religions, all
philosophies, and all psychology agree that love is the key to everything, to fulfillment, to security, to creative growth. And
yet, love cannot be commanded, nor can it be a commandment. It is a free, spontaneous soul movement. The more it is tried,
due to conscience and obedience, the less does it succeed.
