Thought Adjuster: “Life can be so simple and easier to live for most of you if you only remember what is truly important. In the end of your lives none of you will care about how many riches you accumulated, how much power you exerted over your peers, or how much fame you enjoyed. In the end, the only thing you will remember as something that really made a difference in the quality of your life, will be the relationships with your peers.
All human beings are spiritually nurtured by the relationships with others. Nobody lives for their own. We all depend on each other. Loneliness causes a great deal of mental and physical disorders. Human personalities can only acquire a balanced character in a social environment.
Your science has discovered that those who live a social life filled with harmony and peace have more probabilities of being healthy and perform better in the different areas of their lives. Therefore, it is evident that one primordial factor of human happiness is in the manner and the quality of your relationships with your neighbors. So, would it make sense to try to understand how to establish deep and lasting relationships with your brothers and sisters in this world?
The basis of all human relationships is love and the source of true and unconditional love is the Celestial Father, who inhabits within the soul of every human being. Those who wish to really love their peers should search for this love within themselves first, by working on the task of discovering God. After gaining a better knowledge of the Father, the next step is to strive to satisfy the thirst for goodness that spontaneously arises in the hearts of those who have found God. This represents the beginning of the journey to perfection.
Search within your heart and use the capacity of your mortal mind to find God and understand Him a little better each day. Thus, you will discover the key to happiness in your life and achieve a peace that will go beyond all material appearances, a peace that will remain with you to the very end of this life of learning and self-discovery, and even beyond.”
