|| 1.06 | WAY TO BLESSEDNESS ||
This important factor is forgotten by the modern human , howevermuch educated one may be .
One has refused to walk freely with the workings of the Spiritual Nature and has attempted one's best to centre oneself in the state of individualised existence .
TROTA | CHAPTER 1 | SEL0062 | SWAMI KRISHNANANDA
The misery of the present-day world may be attributed to this constrictive tendency in the human being , which is ever trying to block the way of the expansion of the spiritual consciousness .
TROTA | CHAPTER 1 | SEL0063 | SWAMI KRISHNANANDA
The case of the half-baked material science and psychology may be specially mentioned here as being one of the forces obstructive to the happy process of Truth-realisation .
TROTA | CHAPTER 1 | SEL0064 | SWAMI KRISHNANANDA
The ills caused by wrong methods of education , the social and political strifes , the individual evils and the world-degeneration are all effected by the one terrible fact that humanity has turned against the law of the Spiritual Reality .
TROTA | CHAPTER 1 | SEL0065 | SWAMI KRISHNANANDA
So long as this self-destructive tendency of the human mind is not controlled , and the human is not shown the correct way of procedure , the unhappy world has to be contented with its fate .
The remedy lies in our being sincere in taking recourse to the direct method of such Realisation here and now .
Humanity has to be cent-per-cent ( 100% ) spiritual .
TROTA | CHAPTER 1 | SEL0066 | SWAMI KRISHNANANDA
Those who think that they are doing injustice to the world through their act of Self-realisation have naturally to be regarded as having not gone above the credulity of childhood .
For , they have forgotten that the Self which is the Absolute includes the whole universe , and far transcends it .
It is the obtaining of everything , and not the losing of anything .
The welfare of society rests in its spirituality .
TROTA | CHAPTER 1 | SEL0067 | SWAMI KRISHNANANDA
Society is a formation of bodies effected through the unconscious spiritual bond existing among beings belonging to the same genus or species .
The social bond is stronger among those who think alike and who practise the same conduct .
This bond is the strongest among those who are in the same level of the depth of consciousness .
All this is a feeble reflection of the essential nature of the indivisibility of Existence which is One .
TROTA | CHAPTER 1 | SEL0068 | SWAMI KRISHNANANDA
Human beings have to know and act according to this spiritual law , and its acceptance should not be merely for the purpose of academical research , but has to be the foundation of the daily life of everyone in general .
TROTA | CHAPTER 1 | SEL0069 | SWAMI KRISHNANANDA
Unity in the world necessitates a heart-to-heart feeling of oneness among its inhabitants .
This is the need of the hour .
This is the task of the political and the religious heads .
This is what is going to pave the way of blessedness to the whole universe .
TROTA | CHAPTER 1 | SEL0070 | SWAMI KRISHNANANDA
The Upanishads are our guide-lights in this supreme pursuit . Let us understand and follow them with sincerity , faith , calmness , surety and persistence .
