What is the quality that you most appreciate?
I would put sincerity on the forefront. People that are honest always try to act according to truth, and their actions emanate from a deep sincerity, and consequently, are of great purity. The expression of truth is probably what is most lacking within humanity. We would take a tremendous step forward if we were all more aware, both personally and professionally, just how lies and deception are the source of the majority of problems confronting us.
Is it your desire to change the world, and if so, is this desire based on rational reasoning or on a utopian ideal?
Whether we wish it or not, the world is built through our life experiences. Every one of us changes the world with our choices and actions. Personally, I’m of the opinion that humanity has a meaning and a purpose, and some of us are aware of this, and others not, or at least not enough. But we should all realize one day that life has some very mysterious aspects, and that within this world, there are forces in action that are beyond us. We all try to understand the world, although in vain, through rational logic, but life is not limited to our intellectual potential; it’s order and construction far exceeds what we can understand.
Love, in the absolute, cannot be selfish since it is based on exchange. Obviously, in every day life, all forms of love reflect a personal story, conditioned by a particular education and cultural background, creating a truly unique experience. If we want to measure the egocentric dimension in a relationship, on one hand, we must examine what is of a possessive nature, in other words, what separates us from our partners, and on the other hand, what is of a creative one, that which brings us closer to them.
Why should we meditate? And is meditation beneficial for everyone?
Through meditation, we attempt to experience the very nature of reality within ourselves. It is a way to discover who we really are and to better understand what is essential in life. It helps us become One with the only real movement, without the help of our memory. Meditation is direct contact with the present moment. It is a wonderful way to observe ourselves, our sensations, thoughts, recurrent feelings, and our lifestyles.
What is your deepest wish?
My deepest wish does not differ from my profoundest vision. I notice in the world a new way of thinking, and accordingly, a new way of life. Already there is much more harmonious and appropriate behaviour, and this will without doubt, lead every single man to act as a responsible citizen of this small planet Earth.
What does our subconscious consist of?
Our subconscious consists of a personal subconscious and a collective one. Our personal subconscious contains all the knowledge that is registered by our brains, and the collective one, contains all the power of human imagination and refers to the knowledge that we all have in common, going back to ancient forms of humanity’s universal thoughts.
What books would you recommend for those looking for the Truth?
A book is but a set of words and concepts. Although it can reveal certain truths, it can never be able to convey the true nature of all things. Ultimate reality cannot be expressed other than in a direct manner, by directly experiencing it. Words relate to distinct things, which apparently exist in a separate manner, and we know that any type of distinction is definitively an illusion. But it’s true that all conceptual distinctions allow our mind to perceive reality. It’s through illusion that we discover reality. Every book can therefore teach us something on reality, but we must always be aware to take nothing as absolute truth, and to remain open to the essence of all that is.
