In the world there are falseness and Truth. Man’s mind that lives copying what belongs to the world is false, and the world is true. Man is not one with the mind of the world; instead he lives in an overlapping copy of it. In any case, it is a certain fact that he lives in his own mind world. He comes to know Truth to the extent that the mind of the world enters his, and this is enlightenment.
Man’s mind is made up of illusionary pictures. Consequently, when he throws away these pictures Truth will enter into his mind, and he will know Truth to the extent of what he has discarded. This is enlightenment. Only when one repents, can one gain enlightenment and go to the place of Truth. It is the same principle as washing dirty clothes – the more you clean the dirt away, the more it goes back to its original state. A piece of paper, which has been scribbled on, gets cleaner the more the scribbling is erased. Enlightenment is the same as knowing the true state of the paper once it is clean.
It is not possible for man to love his enemies unless he is born in the complete land of God.
When doing Maum Meditation, Truth enters one’s mind to the extent that he has discarded his false mind, and his enlightenment is equivalent to how much Truth has entered his mind. Enlightenment is knowing Truth. The more he becomes Truth by cleansing his sins, the closer he gets to Truth. When none of his preconceptions and habits remain, and the entity that is his self completely dies and disappears he can get to a level where his consciousness is complete. The level of completion is when one’s consciousness becomes the consciousness of the origin and Truth itself. He who is born in this land is Truth and does not die; thus he is a complete person.
One cannot love his enemies just because he has been told to do so. He is able to love his enemies when his consciousness becomes the land of God and when he exists in this land. At such a time, the enemies in his mind will disappear and he will be able to love them. In man’s mind world, he is bound to have enemies. Only he who is born in the land of Truth and heaven while he is living is able to love his enemies.
