THE INHERENT NATURE OF HUMAN BEING
In order for a radio to be tuned properly into the broadcast, the radio has to be in good order. The electronic components in the radio have to be in harmony and working well. That harmony, in our terminology, is called integration. So, when our “radio” is totally integrated, it can attune itself to receive that spiritual force, shakti or Grace, and pass it on.

What the human mind is trying to do is harmonize the body, mind and spirit, so that they can function in wholeness. When the conflict between the body, mind and spirit ceases, life assumes a different quality, and that quality produces happiness. The process and purpose of unifying ourselves is to find happiness and joy. That is the inherent nature of human being. Conflict is produced by that elusive quality called the mind, which contains its own samskaric and karmic values. So, what we are really trying to do is to revert to our Real Self, where only harmony can exist.

Why put so much emphasis on ESP and mystical powers? The emphasis should be on integration of mind, body and spirit. The emphasis should be on reaching the Kingdom of Heaven within, on drawing from that infinite source. Then our lives become smoother, more harmonious and fulfilled – filled with love, kindness, compassion, and all the virtues that go with them. That is the aim of life, that is the goal of life – not acquiring all these so-called supernatural powers.
