The Maha Cohan

1. Become conscious always of your aspiration to embody the full expression of Godhood, and devote all of your being and service to that end.

2. Learn the lessons of harmlessness—neither by word, nor thought, nor feeling will you ever inflict evil or harm upon any part of life. Know that action and physical violence will keep you in the realm of pain, suffering and mortality.

3. Stir not a brother’s sea of emotion thoughtlessly or deliberately. Know that the storm in which you would place his spirit will sooner or later flow upon the banks of your own lifestream. Rather bring always tranquility, love, harmony and peace to all life.

4. Disassociate yourself from the personal and planetary delusion. Never allow yourself to love your little self more than the harmony of the universe. If you are right, there is no need to acclaim it. If you are wrong, pray for forgiveness.

5. Walk gently upon the Earth and through the universe, knowing that the body is a sacred temple, in which dwells the Holy Spirit, bringing peace and illumination to Life everywhere. Keep your temple always in a respectful and purified manner, as befitting the habitation of the Spirit of Love and Truth. Respect and honor with gentle dignity all other temples, knowing that often within a crude exterior burns a great light.

6. In the presence of Nature, absorb the beauties and gifts of Her kingdoms in gentle gratitude. Do not desecrate Her by vile thoughts, sounds or emotions, or by physical acts that despoil Her virgin beauty. Honor the Earth, “the Mother” that is hosting your evolutionary pathway.

7.  Do not form nor offer opinions unless invited to do so, and then, only after prayer and silent invocation for guidance. Speak when God chooses to say something through you. At other times it is best to speak little, or to remain peace fully silent.

8.  Let your heart sing a song of gratitude and joy unto God. Be grateful always for all that you have received and that you have in the now moment. Tap in to the River of Life, River of Love and Abundance that lies within the Sacred Heart.

9.  In speech and action be gentle, but with the dignity that always accompanies the Presence of the living God that lives within the temple of your being. Constantly place all the faculties of your being and all the inner unfoldment of your nature at the feet of the God-power, endeavoring to manifest the perfection of compassion when meeting those in distress.

10. Let your word be spoken in gentleness, humility, and loving service. Do not allow the impression of humility to be mistaken for lethargy, for the servant of the Lord, like the sun in the heavens, is eternally vigilant and constantly out pouring the gifts of Love to those who open their hearts to receive them.

Can’t buy me love

At the physical level, Food, Clothing & Shelter are the 3 basic necessities that money has bought for us for as long as the modern day history dates itself. Then there are needs & wants, that flowers on the tree of desires that grow from the pleasurable stimulus of our 5 senses. Things we love to see, things we taste, smell, hear & feel. Again money buys them for us. At another level there are needs of our spirit, the needs of our subtle body, the needs of our self, the real self. Love, attention, satisfaction, happiness, ecstasy, sense of achievement and bliss of the moment. Can money buy any of these?

Money! What is money?

Wiki says “Money is anything that is generally accepted as payment for goods and services and repayment of debts.[1] The main uses of money are as a medium of exchange, a unit of account, and a store of value.”

Money is a token, a material token that has evolved from a piece of substance to a piece of value. A Value for our needs. Money is a concept conditioned in our mind.

Nature has provided everything that is needed by our physical body. They have been available, are available and will always be available. We just need to know where to look and how to look.

we have to un-condition our mind, and understand that there are many other ways of obtaining the needs of our spirit.

Imagine a world free from the concept of money. Ask yourself how your lifestyle would be in a world that does not understand the concept of money. Identify and record the responses. Understand the responses and implement them in your life, however applicable, and watch your life change.

That’s it for now. I see I started on a beatles song and ended john’s. John is my hero!
