You can't stop the mind, or the hunger of the belly or the mind or the spirit. It wants to grow and it's going to take in stuff one way or the other. When you're thirsty in the desert you're going to drink piss water.

If you're adrift on the sea and you've got no water, you are going to start drinking seawater and kill yourself. It's that kind of stuff. It's the nature of survival. So, you have to deal with the basic element of what it is. It makes us who we are.

We cannot avoid what we are as human beings, physical human beings, intellectual human beings, spiritual human beings. You can't just emphasize one. You have to align that stuff in the proper way and that's the difficulty. And you have to keep it coming.

Wouldn't you like to know how people think in politics and religion and business and what makes them tick? With any age group, young people, middle aged people, old people, the more stats you have the better chance you have in dealing with the physical world right? Wouldn't you like to have that kind of information? Wouldn't you like to know how your children think? You might think that you know how your children think, but what about their peers?

It's not just your children who are living on this planet. There are hundreds of millions of 15-year-olds, 14-year-olds, 13-year-olds. Wouldn't you like to know the answer to the basic question of how they think? Wouldn't that give you a better understanding as to how you go about dealing with your own children? It's better to take the guesswork out of dealing with the problem.

If we can do that we will be a better organization. That is the kind of empowering attribute that can change, not just the world, but you, your family, and can make a difference in your family. That's the kind of stuff that can stick—the kind of stuff that can take root, and from that you can build. So, you don't have to fight when you come across these crazy kinds of people who get into your world just because they have something like political ambition, maybe oil-rich people like Venezuela or Iraq pursuing their own agenda and have some kind of hoopla in the moment. In the end, because these types are pursuing something personal it's not going to make anything better. Real change for good has to be fundamental. If you really want to change—if you really want to really make a change that matters in building an ideal world, you have to include everyone. And how is it possible to do that? By knowing what they're dealing with in life, what kind of people they're dealing with, what kind of world that they're dealing with. The more information you have the better.

I know that you're not going to go and betray somebody—you're not going to backstab somebody, if that information is given. You are not going to use it for your selfish abuse, your gain, your greed. That's important.

That gives you the power, if we have to survive on our own. We can survive because we understand how the world works, how people think, and every aspect of life. The more you have it, the more detail you have, the better for you. Then it can really build a strong root. Screw the flower. The strong root is what is important. The flower will blossom one day. The whole point is to be the best, to be the knight in shining armor stuff. Right? To be the vanguard of humanity.

We're competing with every other religion in the world. I know that in the end we don't need religion. What is your dream? The people who precede you should try to give you as much information as possible.

Go ahead and learn your skill. Learn something, learn your skill, find your calling. I don't know what your calling is. Wouldn't it be great if we were in a certain position where we could take care of all those things and reward those who actually sacrificed for something because everything is managed properly? Even if it isn't. I still believe that's right. If you do sacrifice, so too then I will try to do whatever I can in my little power. Let me just put it this way, I will be there for you. With Father every time is always an emergency. The reason is that he has to love you right? And he has to love a certain tradition. We all have to have that. It can be done right and it can be done wrong.

If you go into the game of criticizing—I can do that really better than you. (Laughing.) I went out of my way not to do that for a long time. I made myself not speak and taught myself how to shut up. I'm just picking it up again.

To be honest with you, I'm feeling something. I started this speaking at Belvedere on Sunday mornings as a condition. Something changed in me. I said that I felt that I need to do this, but it's a little more because time has passed and I see certain faces and when you have that kind of human relationship and human interaction, things do change. 

That's personal and I don't want to get into that. This is something that is mine—you try because you have that kind of stuff. You don't always find hope at the top of the mountain. You don't   always get inspired by the biggest things that you see. Sometimes it can be big and other times it can be invisible.

It's up to you. What are your dreams? There is a way to make that dream come true. You can do it. You always have to know where you stand before you die. When you die everybody knows that you're going to be judged by God and history and posterity, if you believe in the spirit world. Before you die, the greatest judge is the judgment that you give to yourself. I want to be proud. I want to have no regrets. I did everything that I could, the best that I could. Regardless, I did it the best that I could.


Dream the dream. I hope that we can meet each other in the end.

All right, take care of yourself. We'lI see you next week.
