Why, if the experiences are not understood, they become useless?

Answers from the books of Samael Aun Weor

The experiences of life should be transformed into true understanding.

When experiences are not transformed into understanding, when experiences continue in the memory, they constitute the putrefaction of the grave over which burns the luciferic and fatuous flame of the animal intellect.

It is necessary to know that the animal intellect totally deprived of all spirituality is merely the verbalization of memory, a sepulchral light burning over a funeral slab.

A simple man has his mind free of experiences because these have become Conscience; they have been transformed into creative understanding.

Death and life are found intimately associated. Only by the seed dying will the plant sprout, only by experiencing death will understanding be born. This is a process of real transformation.

A complicated man has his memory full of experiences. This shows a lack of creative understanding because when experiences are entirely understood in all levels of the mind, they cease to exist as experiences and are born as understanding.

It is necessary to experience first of all, but we should not remain in the field of experiences because then the mind complicates itself and becomes difficult. It is necessary to live life intensely and to transform all experiences into real creative understanding.

Those who mistakenly assume that to be understanding, simple and plain means to abandon the world, become beggars, live in isolated huts and use loincloths instead of elegant suits are totally mistaken.
