Teaching about community
Gautama Buddha, April 03, 2005
I AM Gautama. I have come again through my Messenger.
Today I want to dwell on the theme of mutual relations between members
of different communities and religious streams.
It is very easy to establish your personal relations with God inside
of you. And it is very hard to establish relations with other people,
who it would seem, follow the same Way with you and should be you
friends. But it is from these people who follow the same Way with you,
you meet the strongest opposition and get the strongest negative
feelings in the form of hatred, envy and blame.
Many of you asked yourselves this question. And many of you tried to
find the answer, but in vain.
Your companions on the Way are in reality your karmic partners. You
are drawn to each other to solve your karmic contradictions. There is
not a single debt that can be forgiven to you. That is why when you
reach a certain level of spiritual achievements, you cannot move any
further until you meet all the individuals who are incarnated, with
whom you have unsolved karmic problems.
That is why on the one hand you find yourself in the circle of people
who are attracted to the Teaching by their wish to achieve the
enlightenment in the area of learning the Divine Truth. And on the
other hand these very people are your old karmic debtors, or you have
to pay them off your own karmic debt.
That is why contradictions in religious schools so often become so
acute, reaching utter hostility that it seems that these people indeed
have nothing in common with God and serve the devil itself.
There is God in each one of you and there is devil in each one of you.
There are no people in incarnation, who are perfect.
The perfection itself to be incarnated in your world has to burden
itself with such voluntarily taken karmic problems peculiar to this
planet that meeting this Divine perfection in flesh you will think
this is the devil itself.
The truth here is that the most perfect souls, coming into incarnation
are trying to take as big karmic baggage as it is possible, to lighten
the burden of the people to whom this baggage belongs.
That is why I give you today this Teaching and this understanding of
interaction between people in a community; and why many people facing
personally many of the problems specific to a commune, prefer to leave
it and look for another commune with smaller problems and more poised
and balanced in its manifestations. Doing so they forget that in
accordance with the quality of their vibrations, they will be drawn to
that very group of people, which can give them the quickest way to
work out their karmic debts.
Not all imperfections you can overcome by means of prayers and other
spiritual practices. Part of these imperfections you can overcome only
coming across the person, with whom you have karma, and working out
this karma in immediate communication and solving the conflict and
surmounting this conflict first of all in your own consciousness.
That is why one should never feel anger or indignation when one of
your brothers on the Way treats you, as it seems to you, unjustly. You
have the opportunity to return your karmic debt to this person in the
softest of all possible ways. Imagine that you killed this person in
the previous or in one of the previous lives. And in this life this
person only verbally insulted you, or expelled you from the community,
or created the unbearable living conditions for you in the community
by intriguing and gossiping.
Though it seems too many of you, that it would be much better to be
killed than to suffer from this unbearable inner pain.
Let God decide how you have to repay your karmic debt. Let God care of
your soul. Believe that you get those very tests in your life and meet
exactly those situations which in the best way contribute to your
progress on the Way.
And no matter how much you will run from one religious group and
community to another, looking for a place where you would feel it
comfortably to stay with those people, who surround you in the
community. You will not find what you are looking for anywhere,
because the energies you yourselves your auras contain do not allow
you to find a place on Earth, where you can hide from your karmic
debts. And only your unreal part, your ego makes you blame someone
outside of you in your problems.
And until you break the resistance of this your enemy, you will meet
the situations, which will hurt you and cause strong emotions and
You can not change other people and you can not change the life on the
Earth, at least you can not achieve significant changes during one
life, but you can change you attitude to the circumstances in your
life. And you can change your attitude to those people who insult you
or commit nasty actions against you.
If you are gold, it doesn't matter in what dirt you will get in the
course of your life, whatever your offenders call you, you remain gold
And everyone of you is such gold nugget. All of you have the
perfection itself inside of you. But the layer of mud which hides your
perfection, your gold, doesn't let other people discern in you your
Divine, perfect nature.
Is it achievable for any group to create relations which conform to
high standards of the Teaching given by the Lords, prophets or messengers?
Of course it is achievable. But only when the group as a whole moves
ahead in compliance with Divine plan, if the group aspires to reach
the heights of Divine service, which materializes as a service to a
neighbor, service to the life in all its manifestations.
The group, which consists of the individuals who have achieved
substantial stages on the spiritual way, is always harmonious and
devoid of conflicts. But it is necessary for the group to have among
its members at least one person with high enough level of achievements
and to strive to follow this person's example.
It also happens sometimes that a person suddenly sees things clearly,
spiritual illumination comes to him and he aspires to transmit his
experience to the people who are close to him in the group, but
instead of support and joy of sharing this experience he encounters
the wall of incomprehension and even accusation of pride and imperfection.
General level of the group in this case doesn't allow it to
distinguish the achievements of its brother in its consciousness. And
the group loses its beacon, person who could give them his Light and
Many situations appear in different groups. But it is necessary to get
through all these situations and accepted them and all of them are
formed by the Creator, for you to have the opportunity to be perfect
in God, having rejected your imperfections.
Therefore everyone gets what they deserve. But I don't want the
feeling of despair and gloom to settle in your souls after today's
In fact the rise to the next level of consciousness happens very
quickly, in few seconds. You only have to keep right orientation,
right direction and right aspiration constantly in your consciousness.
And we give you these dictations exactly with the purpose of aiming
your consciousness and giving you right direction for your aspirations.
Don't pay attention to the film of mud, which covers the souls of
people around you. Be able to discern the Divine nature of every
person behind any layer of mud.
And chose right patterns for imitation around you. Many keys to this
are given to you in these dictations.
I wish you success on your Way.
I AM your brother Gautama.
