Question & Answer

Dear friend,

I don’t think that ‘Simplicity’ is related to narrowness of language, cognition, knowledge or anything else that can be turned into knowledge.

Simplicity is the analogue of Synthesis (see). Synthesis is never reductive but it distinctly keeps every meaning which leads to a common conceptual center. This is a complex concept therefore in order to be re-visited it must be ‘re-opened’ in all the meanings (and ideas) that make its ‘structure and substance’.

This is what I’ve been taught and this is what I studied in depth before conceiving sensible questions to ask my Instructor. My personal education developed on the basis of these questions. This is a good method: question-answer, again question-answer and so on until exhaustion.

The M Morya that you mention said that if being vegetarian was a condition to be an initiate all the (sacred) cows would be as such.

If simplicity (which is not a form of devotional candor) is based upon the ignorance of the basic principles of understanding then it is pure ‘nothing’.

But the empty-nothingness is not nothing.

The empty-nothingness is a dimension of conscience (result of the renunciation to profane ideas) of the man who has gone ‘beyond himself’. The nothing, on the other hand, belongs to those who are still concentrated on the darkness of the mind.

The illuminated mind is simple, but how many can perceive it? How many are in the condition to understand the point of view of a Buddha? Not I.

Some people think that in order to be accepted by a Master it is enough to mention him, to adore him and to burn incense sticks singing litanies. This is totally wrong. In order to be accepted by an initiatory School ‘bare hands’ are not enough.

In order to understand this we need to understand the sense of the ‘trials’ which a Postulant is subjected to. They are not simple at all because on the ‘Way of Return’ nothing is given and all recognition must be ‘earned’ with deeds that cost work and determination. The results are not vain talk or the good intentions of a goody-goody-ness only ‘in words’.

What counts is the overcoming of the ‘obstacles’ that we have placed on our way.

If ‘talking about it’ when we feel like it, or when we have the time to do it, was enough, why are so few ‘Touched’ by a Master? Therefore I don’t agree with the position of the ‘waiting’ simplicity. Rather, I believe in a personal, consistent, conscious, determined and aware commitment.

Nothing happens by chance. Everything is produced by a cause. The main causes of individual karma are the debits and credits of the ‘many ourselves’. Therefore we must act on the ‘many ourselves’ with conscience and intelligence, knowing what to do, where to do it and how to do it. We must avoid advancing randomly as if we had an endless credit; we don’t.


This is why it is necessary to be aware.

The best way to go through ‘the Maze’ built by the ‘many ourselves’ is to know where we must go and what to do to get to the ‘center’ that is inside ourselves, not outside or anywhere else.

Therefore I think that like crossing a mountain pass it is better to be ‘well equipped’, so it is for the reason, in order to have more chances of accelerating the ‘stages’ of the passage towards freedom.

If we don’t know, though, every effort is in vain; it is reasonable to think that every ‘last self’ knows nothing of (one’s own) the before and (one’s own) the after.

Here is, then, the usefulness of a School, an Instructor or a Master. They help ‘growing’ in the constant application of intelligence in order to open mind and conscience.

Simple! Isn’t it?
