Putting death to death
Summary of Elio’s speech
at the European School of Economics, Florence
If you acknowledge yourself as the very source of this world, then every conflict, violence and persecution will instantly disappear.
You cannot be attacked or persecuted by anything or anyone if you don’t perceive yourself as attacked or persecuted. If you react as if you are persecuted, then you are creating and projecting persecutions. When you feel that something external is attacking you, that means you are already victim of your own dreary imagination.
If you question the idea that death is inevitable, you have a chance. If you don’t, you will remain prisoner of your own description – victim of your own conflictual thoughts and emotions. Remember! Your inner conflicts and self-sabotage are more dangerous than any war.
This is a new adventure
Your fear is the very cause of that which you are afraid of,
and your fearlessness is the very cause of all that which makes you free.
Remember! The world is such because you are such. The weak will disappear if you recognize your inner weaknesses. The meek will disappear if you are conscious of your inner harmfulness, and the poor will disappear if you are able to circumscribe and heal your inner misery.
Wars will disappear if you are aware of your inner conflicts.
The world is as you dream it. Accidents, criminality and death are the results of a long series of inner crimes. Stop lying to yourself, and the world will show you all its Goodness, Truth and Beauty.
The recognition of an inner causality – being responsible for all that happens outside, makes evil, sufferings and death totally disappear from earth.
