Answers from the books of Samael Aun Weor

To experience the Truth we don’t need any EFFORT. People are accustomed to strive for everything and they suppose mistakenly that it’s impossible to experience the TRUTH without effort.

We  may need effort to earn everyday’s bread or to play a foot-ball game, or to carry a heavy burden, but it’s absurd to believe that the effort is necessary to EXPERIENCE  that which it’s the TRUTH.

COMPREHENSION replaces effort when one is trying to UNDERSTAND the TRUTH intimately hidden in the secret bottom of every problem.

We DON’T need any EFFORT to understand all and each one of the defects that we carry hidden in the different fields of the mind.

We DON’T need any effort to understand that  the envy is one of the most powerfuls springs of the social machinery. Why so man people want to progress? Why so many people want to have beautiful residences and pretty elegant cars? The whole world envies other’s stuffs.

Envy is pain for the wellbeing of others.

Elegant women are envied by other less elegant women and that is useful to intensify the fight and the pain. Those who don’t have, want to have and even they stop eating to save and be able to buy clothes and ornaments of any kind, with the only purpose of not being less than anyone.
Any champion of the Great Cause is mortally hated by the ENVIOUS, the envy of the impotent, the defeated, the petty who disguises with the toga of the Judge or the robe of Sanctity and Mastery, or with the SOPHISM that is applauded, or with the beauty of humbleness.

If we UNDERSTAND in an INTEGRAL way that we are envious, it’s logical that then the ENVY ends and in its place appears the star that rejoice and shines with other’s progress.

There are people who wants to stop being greedy but then they covet not being greedy, behold a way of greed.

There are men who strugle achieving the virtue of chastity, but when they see on the street a beautiful girl, they throw her compliments, and if the girl happens to be a friend, they can’t help treating her well, telling her beautiful words, to admire her, to praise her beautiful qualities, etc. The background of that coquetry is found in the secret springs of the SUBCONSCIOUS tenebrous, submerged LUST.

When we UNDERSTAND without any effort all the games of the lust, this gets anihilated and in its place is born the immaculated flower of chatity.

We don’t need any effort to aquire those virtues, the I gets stronger when make efforts to aquire virtues. The I loves awards, medals, titles and honors, Virtues, beautiful qualities, etc.
