To Know Thyself

To Know Thyself

In his book Consciousness is Life, Darwin states:  “To know one’s self, as Socrates put it a few thousand years ago, is really the first commandment of the Ancient Masters.  It is a great opportunity to make further discoveries in the universe and the heavenly worlds, for latent in man’s brain is a capacity one million times greater than he is using now.  Science has perceived that the average man of today uses only a small percentage of his brain cells.

Knowledge is never concealed from the eyes of the masses, but the masses refuse to see, note, and understand the knowledge that is right before their noses.  They get caught up in emotionalism, swept into the tidal waves of astral impulses under the guise of 'good versus evil' and end up with someone else’s considerations, not their own.”

“Despite our modern technology . . .  the majority of the people within the world still have a very great hurdle to overcome.  That is, to relax and learn to get their answers via the temple within.”

 “Imagination is the very gateway of reality.”

 Darwin continues in Power of Imagination:  “By imagination we have the power to be anything we desire to be.  Through imagination we disarm and transform the violence of the world.  Our most intimate as well as our most casual relationships become imaginative as we awaken to “the mystery hid from the ages,” that Spirit in us is our imagination.  We realize that only as we live by imagination can we truly be said to live at all.”
