1- What are the main teachings brought out in the audio lecture recording? Explain in your own words.
Sebai Maa taught about how there are two goals in life and two forms of education to receive in life, which are the worldly and the spiritual knowledge. We study creation, not like a college study but more so the study of creation and the world itself, of our own being, the study of self- knowledge and those mysteries that caused creation to come into being. These mysteries transcend any experience that we can have in the world of time and space, which is much more difficult.
Shedy the Neterian teaching of the mysteries that keeps you from falling back into the world is a very important step to take in becoming educated in life. Being an aspirant you have a goal to reach the discovery of the Supreme Being. You will need an authentic teacher to teach you a whole teaching of the whole, the worldly and the spiritual teachings. There is the lower teachings which deals with the worldly disciplines and the higher mystery which are the mysteries of the self- knowledge. You have the teachers and the teachings. The teachings is the male and the teacher is the female (student) the female is the receiver, the seed from the male and creates new life.
One has to have faith in the teacher and the self to learn the teachings, achieving greatness in the world and the spirit will allow you to achieve higher goals in life. That which transcends worldly desires is a spiritual goal. Mental agitation causes the mind unrest as it ages, causing the mind to not be able to gain the knowledge that transcends all knowledge. The goal in life is to discovery the Supreme Being. So if you turn towards the Supreme Being you will be able to discipline yourself and your life to be able to learn virtues and turn yourself away from the distractions of the world. It prevents you from doing unrighteous deeds and fills you with positive endurance and righteousness.
