25 - Torkom's Work Ethics

I was looking over my many notebooks and came across some notes that I had taken back in August 19, 1993 from a group meeting conducted by Torkom. He was giving us advice for success. I find his instructions timely and important. These are simple rules that Torkom followed his entire life. When followed, they simplify life and help me have faith, hope, and the trust in the future. Here are some of the things that he said that you may find useful in your life.

The Teachings used by me [Torkom] are for success, which means happiness, health, joy, continuity, and abundance. Here are 15 ways that success is a sure outcome:

1. All that he does for the group is the best work that he can do. 

2. He dedicates all that he does for the Hierarchy of Great Ones, the Highest that he can. What do you do that demands the best from you? Find it, give the best to others. This forms the “crown” of your head. 

3. He puts all his “capital” into his work without holding anything back: his family, his money, his body, his talents and abilities; all are great factors for success. Otherwise, you ruin yourself with halfhearted attempts. Think: you are His soldier. If you are halfhearted, doubtful, you cannot make it.

24 - Meditation on God

“In this age we must expand our understanding of the word God.” *

I meditated on God and my universe expanded. My heart became more peaceful; my mind serene.

There is no human being on earth who does not ever ask about God.

God is unfathomable; yet we try. So why ponder on the imponderable?

Because we get parochial otherwise; we want only our “God” to be the one. This creates separatism and shrinks our mind, our world. We do not see other possibilities and views. Our consciousness shrinks. A shrinking consciousness then identifies a turf — then works to protect it — creating ideologies to buttress the view, and then takes action preemptively. Slowly our soul shrinks and we create a space for evil to take root. When the soul shrinks further, we lose our divine connection; evil has free play. Evil does not just come and sit inside of us; we invite it by commission or omission. Then we identify us vs. them; we then make “them” less than us, less human. We see the world as limited.  Less than “us” therefore creates a philosophy of not deserving the privileges and opportunities that we feel we have a right to have. This fractures our inherent moral fiber and we disconnect further from our soul. Then evil takes root ever more deeply and eventually the soul is kicked out; the elementals are in charge. We blame others, the "them” for all our troubles.  It is a predictable death march after that; it will end in death because evil cannot triumph for long; the elementals will return to earth. Evil goes down and takes its body with it. But it is always ready to reactivate itself. Until we “seal the door where evil dwells” it will wait for opportunities to rise up.  We certainly provide many such opportunities.

Have you pondered on the meaning of God?

What are our “Gods”?  Our religious definitions and exclusive identities and opinions are on the top of the list. Then we have our positions, diplomas, special
