Mass-media and the Individual
Questions and Answers
Q. Can you tell us about the wars in the world and what should be our attitude towards them?
Elio. Have you ever seen any war?….
Elio. You will never see one.
War, like poverty, is not an objective status, but a subjective state of Being.
War, like poverty, is an inner matter and never an outer reality.
The world in its apparent objectivity is only a projection. War, poverty, horrors, desease and death are only within. They all come from within. The objective world is only a reflection of your subjectivity, only you can heal and save the world if you know how to heal and save yourself. The path to travel takes the form of its traveller.
Q. What about the media? Are they not telling us what in the world is really happening? Are they not telling us the Truth about the real conditions of the people in the world?
Elio. No! . . . . They are only telling you about your own inner states and conditions. They are only telling you what you yourself want them to tell you. They are only giving you what you unconsciously ask for.
You are so limited that you cannot see the limits that you yourself project.
You resist the idea that you can live as long as you would like to live, and the core of resistence is guilt.
You need not be guilty.
Guilt is self-destructive and does nothing to serve the planet, other people or yourself. Your only challenge is to accept that you are safe. Feeling secure, safe is a difficult accomplishment for you who were raised by the hypnotizing bombardment of mass media which has literally brainwashed you into seeing the world as a terrifying place. You walk around with an underlying feeling of impending disaster and utilize distractions to escape the overwhelming horror of death.
Your responsibility will esponentially increase as you turn from organized religion and embrace individual path. You are ready ‘Now’ to recognize that you are the one who creates his own reality with the power of thought and attention.
You will no longer let fear or restriction guide your relationships or jobs that are not a full expression of who you are.
You will not accept anymore living in a world run by the culture of death. And you will naturally abbandon all forms of religion and phylosophy that glorify death.
You have to realize that living is a great challenge whereas death is relatively easy. When contemplating physical Immortality it’ s natural to also contemplate mortality, so that you know everything about death whether or not you question it. When you will be living from a place of pure Integrity and freedom, your relationship with time changes — you don’ t feel anymore pressured to get all of your Life’ s goals achieved quickly or staying busy so that your working hard can justify your existence.
The idea of physical Immortality improves your quality of Life.
