Question: Every time the same study materials at the lesson are arranged into new pictures for me. My mind fights them and tries to bring in the old stamps, and I unsuccessfully try to tame it. What can I do about this?
Answer: We should love revolutions. Don’t be afraid to lose what you have. There’s something new? Good! Nothing is left of the old? Excellent. I don’t care.
Wise is he who is able to lose his wisdom and start anew. You are like an infant: The mind is empty, and you have no approach to what happens; even your old approach is gone.
We should want no trace of yesterday to remain. Otherwise, you cannot take in today. This principle is very vividly expressed in spirituality. The less I have left of yesterday, the better. This pertains to everything: the group, me, the Creator, and the world. All the pictures that pertain to spirituality should fade away, freeing the space for something new.
