I now understand that the most important work we can do in the world starts with the self. It is only when we look at ourselves that we can even begin to formulate correct judgement of others. I have also noticed that judgement comes in the form of opinions that seem to be based on appearances.
Most people do not want to see who they are and be confronted with how they are living. A man lives upright and he values his own self. It is the value of the SELF that enables a man to value a woman.
This is also true for a woman. A woman who degrades herself in any way shape or form has no self worth. She has no integrity. A woman believe it or not can bring down an entire nation if she lacks integrity. As you can see this is what is happening right now in our modern society of smart phones and the internet.
Women dont know we uphold the world. Nature dictates this not I. The woman is the mother. The nurturer of the children. Every man comes from a woman.
Some may argue that there is a dual responsibility of both men and women but that is because they do not know that everything has a foundation. This foundation is the starting point. All starts with a woman because the woman is the spirit of the man. In a woman a man can understand his self. This is because women and men are unified polarities.
Any of you that understand nature or spirituality of any kind know that without polarity there is nothing.
It is polarity that manifests “god”. This is not a new age teaching. It is ageless WISDOM. It is now resurfacing because contemporary man HAS LOST HIS WAY. HE IS IGNORANT OF UNIVERSAL LAW.
What man or woman is strong enough to stand in their own truth in total acceptance of how they are living? Especially if they are living a debased and immoral life? That is not an easy thing to do. Yet we find fault with these people because we do not understand what the problem really is.
We tend to look down on others causing us not see our own faults. Which of course is what hypocrites do. They cast stones. It is not wise to cast stones. We must begin to understand WHY PEOPLE ARE LIVING IN A DEGRADED STATE.
This is deeper than economics and politics. It goes back to morality , conduct, ethics and principles.
These days men and women lack good moral character. ”

“MAN CONCEALS REALITY BY LIVING CONTRARY TO IT”
– Manly P. Hall (lecture) God and Man The Great Polarities
In man there are two natures; his spiritual or higher nature and his material or lower nature. In one he approaches God, in the other he lives for the world alone.
Signs of both these natures are to be found in men. In his material aspect he expresses untruth, cruelty and injustice; all these are the outcome of his lower nature. The attributes of his Divine nature are shown forth in love, mercy, kindness, truth and justice, one and all being expressions of his higher nature.
Every good habit, every noble quality belongs to man’s spiritual nature, whereas all his imperfections and sinful actions are born of his material nature. If a man’s Divine nature dominates his human nature, we have a saint.
Man has the power both to do good and to do evil; if his power for good predominates and his inclinations to do wrong are conquered, then man in truth may be called a saint.
If on the contrary, he rejects the things of God and allows his evil passions to conquer him, then he is no better than a mere animal.”
We have only to look round us at the men whom we meet every day, or to listen to the conversations which are going on in the streets or the railway carriages. In nine cases out of ten we shall notice that the people are talking either about money, or amusements, or gossip.
Their one idea in life seems to be what they call “having a good time”, or, as they frequently put it in still coarser and more objectionable language, “having lots of fun” — as though this were the end and the object of the existence of a reasonable being, a living spark made in the Divine Image! I have been much struck with this — that the only idea which many people seem to connect with life is that of the sensuous pleasure of the moment — just amusement and nothing else.”
– Excerpts from Annie Besant ‘s ‘Creating Character’
“Man’s destiny is self-made, not imposed upon him arbitrarily from without; his own powers, blinded by ignorance, spin and twist the cord that fetters him, as his own powers, directed by knowledge, liberate his limbs from the self-imposed shackles, and set him free from bondage.”
– Annie Besant ’Riddle of Life’
“THERE IS A BLATANT DENIAL OF THE SPIRITUAL ESSENCE OF MAN. THERE IS A BELIEF IN RELIGIONS AND A “GOD” IN HEAVEN BUT THERE IS NO CONFIDENCE IN THE POWER OF MAN HIMSELF.”
– Miss Allgood The orator
“Dependence on things, on people, or on ideas breeds fear; dependence arises from ignorance, from the lack of self-knowledge, from inward poverty; fear causes uncertainty of mind-heart, preventing communication and understanding. Through self-awareness we begin to discover and so comprehend the cause of fear, not only the superficial but the deep casual and accumulative fears.”
– J krishnamurti
Real trust is not what it is thought to be. Trust is not in people, places or things. Trust is in and of the self. This self is really the inward unseen self that is you. This trust is really self assurance. Trust is the self. Trust therefore does not exist outside of the self. One cannot look to another for validation or assurance. That is dependency which is what strengthens fear. If one was confident in the self one would see that one is strong and that which he puts his trust in is weak. I tell you… if all men rested their assurance in the inward self all needs in all relationships would be met. There would be no fear and no dependencies. Then perhaps true love would be discovered.
“THE BELIEF THAT ALL MEN HOLD IS THAT THEY CANNOT STAND ON THEIR OWN FEET. THEY BELIEVE THEY NEED THE SUPPORT OF THE EXTERNAL WORLD. THEY THINK THAT IF THE WORLD DOES NOT PROVIDE THEIR BODILY MATERIAL NEEDS THEY WILL PERISH. THIS IS THE REAL REASON WHY MEN DO NOT DEVELOP THE SPIRITUAL SELF. MEN ARE LAZY AND SECRETLY WANT TO DEPEND ON THE WORLD. THIS DEPENDENCY IS THE CAUSE OF FEAR AND LACK OF SELF CONFIDENCE. MEN WANT A WORLD THAT HOLDS THEM UP IN A FALSE GLORY SO THAT THEY DO NOT HAVE TO WORK ON THE INNER CHARACTER THAT IS THE REAL MAN.”

“REAL LIFE IS MENTAL. THE WORK OF MAN IS TO STRENGTHEN HIS MIND SO THAT HE CAN KNOW OF HIS SPIRITUAL SELF. REAL RELATIONSHIP IS MENTAL. LOVE IS MENTAL. THEREFORE GOD MUST BE MENTAL.”
