Lower nature, the - in people: why we must not satisfy it

Daily Meditation:  Friday, March 18, 2011

Do your best to consider only people’s divine nature, their soul and spirit; it is this nature you must serve. Don’t concern yourself with satisfying the whims of their limited, selfish lower nature. You will say, ‘Yes, but if I don’t give in to people’s wishes at home, or among my friends or at work, I will cause nothing but upset.’ Let them be annoyed; continue to love and serve only their divine aspect! Jesus said, ‘Let the dead bury their own dead.’ How should these words be interpreted? What are these dead? They are in fact people’s lower nature. The lower nature, the personality, should be classed with the dead, and if we try so hard to please and satisfy all its whims, we ourselves end up dying. Jesus did not mean the dead in the cemeteries; they are where they should be, and only their bodies are dead, while their soul is alive. The dead Jesus speaks of are people who have no spiritual life, because they give in too much to their lower nature, and you must not waste your time and energy pleasing them.
