There’s a broad base for every success, there’s a broad base of failure, There’s a broad base of ignorance for any form of wisdom. For every millionaire there’s a broad base of poor people ?? ??
So this is, I consider the human ?? the symbol of humanity. Also the three ?? ?? the three ??. If you ?? I’d say these are little, I’d say ?? hints to help the truthful life as laid down by Christ and Buddha both. The way, the truth and the life – and the buddha, the dharma and the sangha are synonymous. Meaning you work in the truth. You become the truth ?? possible? But you also have a discipline, you also have associations, colleagues. Whether they’re scientists or esoteric searchers, it’s good that you have colleagues
R. I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t believe that. Because I’ve heard that – this is a Gurdjieffian theory, if you’re acquainted with Gurdjieff, He started a group that pretty much that functioned or flourished pretty much during World War I, He claimed the reason they were ?? was because the people were being ?? or killed, and large numbers on the battlefield, and their intelligence quantum were was being released into the atmosphere, and taken in by other people.
Now there’s quite a few people who believe this. There’s ?? can be observed. There’s an intelligence quantum that’s only so much. There’s only so much available. Thay may be so; I don’t know where he gets his idea from. But that has been held forth.
But I believe that the – what a person reaches is Essence. And whereas? you can’t tap it when you get there – you know, tap it and run a pipe out there/here and perform miracles with it – that’s what a lot of people think, that a lot of healing and this sort of thing comes from divine energy. [But] it comes from basically human quantum energy.
There’s a fellow, Norbu Chen, I don’t know if you ?? ?? have no faith except that they can do it, and they do it.
So the idea of taking something from somebody else, I don’t think so. I mean more than a million are, take the people working in the factories, because if ? harmful to ?? there’s not going to be any factories, or workers. But he took them up as ?? as there was, that’s aall. Maybe he helped a little.
Q. You mentioned that insaudible
R. Oh, yes, I followed them. I told you that. I made up my mind that if I even went crazy, if I lost my life in the process, I’d continue.
R. Oh, no. No, no. I hope I didn’t leave that impression with you, because I didn’t. 03:39
