Societal and Esoteric Manners

Monday, June 01, 2015

A character comes from a proper spiritual training. The heart has to be purified and the Self (Ego) has to be crushed and mortified. One cannot become a good human being without spiritual training. Those who show laziness or lack of interest in terms of practicality are those that fake their spiritual belief.

Spirituality is all about actions, not talks.

There are two types of manners:

1- Societal manners, which has to do with living in a society in perfect harmony and peace. It means not depriving others of their rights and respecting everybody.

2-Esoteric Manners, which come with enlightenment of the heart and the Self. When these two souls are not enlightened, one doesn't have esoteric manners.

You can't be a good person if you hurt others with your tongue, hands and words.

If every time you make a promise, you break it and do not honour your promise or every time you speak, you lie, then you are a hypocrite according to the Prophet Mohammad (the Prophet of Islam).

If you don't weigh your words and you are not bothered about the emotional harm it can give to others, then you are a social animal; you are not a human being.

If Gohar does not reflect in your character, you do not belong to Gohar. One who doesn't respect religious beliefs of others can't be one from among us. His Divine Grace Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi teaches us to respect all religions and all human beings. The true disciples practise it.
