Destiny – Manly P. Hall

I don’t usually post videos or anything that came from others, but I am making an exception today. Philosophizing the potential of a destiny for human kind. This is a great lecture by Manly P. Hall.

Doing as we please…

There is a constant relationship between events in that, similar causes always produce similar consequences.  War must result in war, not peace…  Then why must we say this lower destiny is essentially benevolent?  If war must always produce war, then it is eternal in itself.  This, we do not wish to believe.

If every mistake we make results in a catastrophe from which we have learned nothing and about which we make no thoughtful consideration, then the viscous cycle of circumstances will go on indefinitely.

We like to hope that we can do as we please and that all will come out well.  This is possible only in a person so enlightened that what he pleased to do is the greatest good for himself and everyone else.  Until this is the basis of his pleasure, pleasure will alternate with displeasure down through time.

Your power as a variable

We interpret the world with little responsibility for the collective agreement of the relative truth; “this is just the way it is”.  Some truths will operate as results because it is being perceived by variables.  These variables will naturally create agreements for concepts not well understood that will become their truth.  For example; tell me what time it is, and I want the truth.  For it to be correct, we will have to come to an agreement.  For it to be true, we would have to first be asking the right questions. 

Right now it is 11:00 AM here in Atlanta, GA.  There is nothing I can do to change that by myself.  If I try to change it by myself I will be late or early for every place I must be.  Though, during daylight savings we agree to change the time and it effects the result of our reality.
We are the variables and we experience our results. There is great power in that.
