What the purpose of the commandments?

The spiritual existence is amoral. It is eternal, infinite and one. Therefore, there is no question of moral or immoral for it. According to man-made, zeitgeist-dependent categories. And so eternal, infinite and one is destiny and what we commonly call God. Therefore, it is pointless to ask how God can allow all the suffering, the killing, when he commands „Thou shalt not kill!“. God, the soul, the destiny – and we – are one. Things are as they should be. As they are right. Not how they should be according to our moral ideas. The commandments have only one purpose: their observance enables our consciousness to lift the veil of the mind from our soul and allow us to experience ourselves in our wholeness. They serve to weaken the mind in its desires. To make its ramparts more transparent.

Everyone may know one or two pronounced mind people. They come to us and start talking. They talk without further explanation about people („the Peter, the Claudia, the Hans…“) we don’t know and don’t add any further information. They don’t care if we understand their words. They talk about things they even know we don’t understand about them without even a thought that we don’t understand anything they say. Then they talk of opportunities, of battles won. Of themselves who have everything under control.

If you meet one of these people after an illness or after a long and arduous journey, these people are transformed. They are exhausted. Their ego is exhausted. Has worn itself out from the friction of the material world. They are quiet. They take up so little space. You are level-headed. Receptive. Common conversations develop where otherwise only hidden hard-hitting monologues existed. Other people. Through the weakened ego, the perception of oneness has more space and changes the world. Changes these people.

That is what the commandments want to achieve. But if they are asleep again the next morning, then the ramparts stand again and their ego has no place for anyone except for themselves. This state of concealment is the punishment they incur. Nothing else. It is the life in separateness under the light-tight woven veil of the mind, which covers the soul.

Pain must never be allowed to guide us. Our actions grow out of the fearless knowledge of our security in the meaning, of our soulfulness and of the eternal unity of everything. We always act in love for everything and everyone. There is no inner separation. Pain alone must never guide us.
