TRUE LOVE AND OUR PERSONALITY
LOVE AND CHARACTER
I think one of the main purposes of our destiny, whether we are aware of it or not, is the forging of the character. Our Ego is comparable to a gem, a diamond in the rough. A coarse crust wraps it as soon as it is pulled out and hides the splendor it contains. To become a truly appreciated and covet…ed gem, the expert hand cleans each of its faces and duly polishes it in a very hard grinder stone. Slowly, little by little, the light is reflected in its many facets, finally showing its hidden beauty, as expressed so beautifully by Max Heindel.
As an occult gem in their journey throughout the matter and through the vital grinding wheel which is the experience, in every life the Ego cleans these impure deposits and accepts the new light of intelligence. The temperament and character of Ego differs in every life we live in and over time we can then show a small part of our true spiritual nature and slowly develop a latent portion of our divine possibilities. But we have to round them out and make our temperament more stable and thus search the self-control goal through a continuous and daily sacrifice. I think appropriate to quote Goethe, who concentrates in one sentence these important truths: “From every power the world enchains, man frees himself when self-control he gains”
The process is slow but unavoidable. However there is a factor that regulates its extent, circumstances and consequences, good or bad, happy or painful i.e. the vast experience that shapes the ego called the free will. By means of our ability to decide, our freedom for right or wrong, we set up our destination, our health, our illnesses, failures or fortune. Let’s not forget that we are born innocent, but bestowed and full of trends, strengths, virtues, liabilities and weaknesses that at a given period of time and particular circumstances, we make use of and pay off to achieve certain objectives. But as mentioned above, we can change those tendencies and reinvigorate our virtues through the practice of will and perseverance. When we believe that a target is valuable and important to our lives, any personal or collective sacrifices are meaningless or bearable in the achievement of it.
In today’s society we have subverted our values and we believe that material or economic success is the epitome of happiness and the complementing of being and that is parallel to obtaining personal triumphs. Our utilitarian system has led us to firmly believe that meeting the desires and accumulating “things”, goods or possessions bring us happiness. Sadly, if that objective has been just pursued based on such pseudo values and once satisfied those physical or emotional needs, there will be nothing but emptiness and darkness of the soul. There is a trifling realism in searching for that lifestyle and experience over the centuries that confirms this assertion, since at the end these behaviors lead to an infamous fate. Closer to happiness is the long-lasting practice of truth, actual engagement with our responsibilities acquired along with our promises to others and especially our commitments and inner promises, if those are oriented towards the practice of good, non selfish happiness and the expansion of the consciousness….
Preferred zone of feeling is the practice of true love, in the human and common sense, is particular case, the love of the couple and their brood. We think we know by nature all about love and do not understand that love is an art that as such, it must be learned, practiced and improved as the summit of our lives. We confuse love of couples having sex with love and we believe that the former one crops up from eroticism while the opposite is exactly the truth. But the ease of modern life and the blatant use of lustfulness as a fundamental element of mass consumption and the satisfaction of desires, for the sole purpose of gratifying the self and its multiple effects in the sake of the market, have managed to amaze, convince and obliterate mankind.
On the other hand, to come to sublimate love and try to understand its enormous, transcendent meaning and its universal value, it demands an internal process, a self-knowledge and an ongoing purification of consciousness. Erich Fromm tells us that knowledge of man is parallel to the problem of knowing God. And the best path is through love, which essentially involves and leans on care, responsibility, respect and knowledge, elements mutually interdependent that form part of the mature individual who has given up his narcissistic and omniscient dreams and feigned omnipotence and “has acquired meekness based upon that inner strength that only a genuine productive activity can provide”. Since a fondness of a couple should always be based upon these principles, whoever wants to exalt love should practice them all the time and much better if such achievement is linked to economic prosperity. However it should rest on righteousness and on an uncompromising commitment to walk together with honesty and love in the pursuit of the Truth. Truth shall set us free, said the divine Master.
