96/Pearls Of Wisdom/A Spaceship In The Universal Body
The Universal Body
planet is a very beautiful, 'spaceship'. We can say 'spaceship'. It carries
many sentient beings in mid air and circles around. Our planet gives us a lot
of comfort and joy. It gives us a lot of treasures, and sustains our lives through
many ways and means. But then we also have a little duty towards our Mother
Earth, to help her to remain in such a powerful position so that she may be
able to help us.

Everything we do affects
everyone in this world and the next. Every religion mentions to us that all
things; all beings are one in essence. Just like our body has many parts. If
our hands hurt, it affects our whole body also. Just because the universal body
is so great, and we the many beings in this great body cannot understand, cannot
see the whole universal body, so we may not believe that our actions concern
any other beings. Should we develop the kind of Celestial Eye, the Wisdom Eye,
we would see this for ourselves that we are indeed connected with all beings;
and then we would be very careful about what we do.

and natural disasters are not always caused by geographical complications, but
generated from the atmosphere of the world. When human beings treat each other
unjustly and with hostility, an irritating and vicious warlike ambience is generated,
and from this many disasters and wars are created.
Recently, more disasters
have been happening on Earth. This is a reminder from God that we should go
back to our original qualities of Truth, virtue and beauty, instead of being
intoxicated in negativity. We human beings have two kinds of power, one is positive,
the other negative. The positive one gives us and others comfort and bliss.
This is the quality we should always maintain and develop further. If we were
to be stuck in the negative sphere, the world would become more and more chaotic.

positive power generated by our spiritual practice can avert some of the disasters
in the world. We still see disasters happen as if nothing has helped. But, if
we did not practice spiritually, there would be even more disasters, enough
to destroy the whole planet long ago.
