WHAT ARE YOUR NEEDS?

  GOD NEVER CONTROLS MAN’S MIND, YOU CONTROL GOD God never controls man’s mind because what you regard as God is a neutral bio-chemic energy. It could be definable in scientific terms, but at its subtlest level, it is indefinable. So, God never controls man’s mind. You own...

DUTY AS AN ACT OF LOVE

  EVOLUTION AND ITS OPPOSITE INVOLUTION There is no difference between the individual ego and individuality because it is the individuality that creates the ego, which in turn creates individuality.
