Sayings of Truth Volume 5
What advantage then hath the Jew? Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God. For what if some did not believe? God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.
But if our unrighteousness commend the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who taketh vengeance? I speak as a man. God forbid: for then how shall God judge the world? For if the truth of God hath more abounded through my lie unto his glory; why yet am I also judged as a sinner? And not rather, as we be slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say, Let us do evil, that good may come?
What then? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin;. As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:.

There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul. If in an infinite chain a few links can be explained, by the same method all can be explained.
It is child's talk that a man dies and goes to heaven. We never come nor go. We are where we are. All the souls that have been, are, and will be, are on one geometrical point. He whose book of the heart has been opened needs no other books.
Their only value is to create desire in us. They are merely the experiences of others. Have charity towards all beings. Pity those who are in distress. Love all creatures. Do not be jealous of anyone.

Look not to the faults of others. If it is impossible to attain perfection here and now, there is no proof that we can attain perfection in any other life. If I know one lump of clay perfectly, I know all the clay there is. This is the knowledge of principles, but their adaptations are various. When you know yourself you know all.
Personally I take as much of the Vedas as agrees with reason. Parts of the Vedas are apparently contradictory. They are not considered as inspired in the Western sense of the word, but as the sum total of the knowledge of God, omniscience.
This knowledge comes out at the beginning of a cycle and manifests itself; and when the cycle ends, it goes down into minute form. When the cycle is projected again, that knowledge is projected again with it. So far the theory is all right. But that only these books which are called the Vedas are His knowledge is mere sophistry.
Manu says in one pace that that part of the Vedas which agrees with reason is the Vedas and nothing else. Many of our philosophers have taken this view. Of all the scriptures of the world it is the Vedas alone that declare that even the study of the Vedas is secondary.

The real study is "that by which we realise the Unchangeable". We have been low animals once. We think they are something different from us. I hear, Western people say, "The world was created for us. The worm that crawls under your feet today is a God to be.

Intellectuality is not the highest good. Morality and spirituality are the things for which we strive. Our women are not so learned, but they are more pure. To all men every woman save his own wife should be as his mother.

When I look about me and see what you call gallantry, my soul is filled with disgust. Not until you learn to ignore the question of sex and to meet on a ground of common humanity will your women really develop. Until then they are playthings, nothing more. All this is the cause of divorce. Your men bow low and offer a chair, but in another breath they offer compliments. They say, 'Oh, madam, how beautiful are your eyes! How dare a man venture so far, and how can you women permit it?

Such things develop the less noble side of humanity. They do not tend to nobler ideals. No sooner are a young man and a young woman left alone than he pays compliments to her, and perhaps before he takes a wife, he has courted two hundred women. If I belonged to the marrying set, I could find a woman to love without all that! But I have travelled since then, and I know it is not right.
It is wrong, only you of the West shut your eyes and call it good. The trouble with the nations of the West is that they are young, foolish, fickle, and wealthy. What mischief can come of one of these qualities; but when all three, all four, are combined beware! There the women are all faddists, all fickle, merely bent on following something new and strange.
It is all "here". To live and move in God even here, even in this body, all self should go out, all superstition should be banished. Such persons live in India. Where are such in this country America? Your preachers speak against dreamers.
