Thank you very much to welcome us in this hall of National University of Colombia, a research center, a center of education, a center for experiencing the despair that exists in the people of releaing from confinement of its actuall historic structures. It gives me great joy to present to you the issue of Oidatheraphy through their latest developments through faitheducation. Education on the basis of faith, regardless on faith. Education that has a great responsibility to human beings, not only in the viewpoint of social welfare, or from the standpoint of welfare physical or mental well-being but as a transcendental being. The oidatheraphy is in this circle. the oidatheraphy appears in this circle is not exactly something new but something of an observation Victor Frankl, in his contribution of Logotherapy focuses much the meaning of life. He says that man who do not knows nothing of the meaning of life, naturally expresses despair and much later alterations in their welfare This response is very interesting compared to the psychology of adaptation to circumstances which seeks to position the man of this world to the different circumstances surrounding it. Psychology as a study of the welfare of society, within the family, which seeks to guide the person toward the highest productivity within human society, Countering all the discomforts that can occur for various imbalances and frustrations is a function that falls short from the standpoint of oidaterapia. It's like a pain that one seeks to remedy with a pill. Just trying to ignore a situation that has bases earlier in the depths of our being. I therefore invite you to understand the roots of education according to the so-called unity conscious phenomenology.I therefore invite you to understand the roots of education according to the so-called unity conscious phenomenology.I therefore invite you to understand the roots of education according to the so-called unity conscious phenomenology. Conscious unity, or rather: you and me. We have a great responsibility and many skills. But it is so little we know about ourselves that we often forget the responsibilities that we have been given by the very fact of being conscious beings Conscious awareness, ultimately, knowing, learning,discriminating, analyzing, identifying, taking steps forward in our lives. Awareness drive motor. consciousness drive motor Observer awareness, foundation of the doubt, of research, the foundation of the happiness and progress. Buscar Conscience, gift of a field with its own criteria, where does this emerge ? Here we go where anthropologists and can study what they observed when analyzed the lifestyles of past centuries. What happened when the being began to adress each other? What happened when the conversation emerged? Which was the first proselytizing in this world who told another person, YOu know? I have an idea. Is this and this and this , as I think you also should obey because it is the best way to lead life. And the other might have said: I do not think so Or could have said: Fantastic, this will be my new faith.
Where?, Where the faith emerged ? What is faith? What is its root? What is thought? What is the word? what is the sophistication? How the ear works and the tongue to speak? Which is function of the the mind that works in a unimaginable speed equates it in circumstances and decisions that are transforming it into transformations in faith? For example: you give me an apple and I accept it, I mean as I have faith in you and the apple. It is an act of faith, eating, Walking is an act of faith. There are different types of faith.
All that is called faith is an acceptance process, necessary for walking, need to grow. Without faith the being can not be anything at all, Oida is euk idos. Socrates said: All I know is that i dont know nothing It is a very nice and humble phrase of this philosopher. That made him be loved and looked by the philosophers. Not that he said: I know everything and you have to follow me in everything, in fact the thought is an expression of our being ,of our conscious unity, whichpractically identifies a being as a child of the antimaterial capacity. La capacidad antimaterial es algo muy importante. If we do not kow the difference between matter and spirit, then we will enter into complex contradictions that will lead us to the same thing happens to the modern man: a situation where one knows where to go: either there or here. One does not know that it is good or bad. One does not know how to continue and come in very serious problems. Define antimaterial: for the evolutionist who believes that life does not make sense, he believes that the circumstances are just accidental that in due course led to a development in a case of a mental power that developed the first thought ... Imagine is the most important: When and how did the first thought emerge? one hear something and said : it has a meaning, I have to think about it and come to a conclusion of its meaning? This phenomenon is crucial to understand that it is fatiheducation, if we are convinced that all emerged by accident ... and had the ability to reproduce sistematically and inclusive founding the national university, which manifests like this. If that conscious unit have no other explanation what they say the evolusionists and Darwinists that is just for survival of the strongest of by selection system .. For them, the phenomenology of the mind and intelligence are unexplained mysteries. waht to say of the phenomenology that emerges when we entered on the field of faith, of faith in transcendence. To feel committed to accomplished as conscious beings,what to say of accomplishing something as the karma, to know of reincarnation, in moral and ethics, connection etc. A whole bunch of concepts that arise in connection with this assumption of transcendence as a backdrop to all that is I want to talk a little bit of Darwinism: which suggests that consciousness is something that comes by accident. I come to think that spirituality is a fantasy of the unimaginable being I remember as a child and went to school they told me: one day the monkey walked by the mountain and watch the sun was born and saw this golden globe and the monkey scratched his head and said: who have created this phenomenon.
And that was the birth of the first Homo Sapiens, or rather: the first thinking being From there they began to fantasize more, the amount of people have invented religions and the rest of the mafia appeared. All this say that happened with our life,the evolutionists. And as you know there is not much to do in this matter, because those who run the world today are not necessarily those seeking welfare and respect for other citizens. We are more in jake mate , in difficulties caused by materialism. Materialism means that if have the matter im fine, and if not I'm wrong So that you do not have a concept of responsibility, it puts one in a very desperate situation. We, as conscious beings have the impressive capacity to observe the matter . is that matter is watching us? I think not, no? As observers, we have a greater position to matter. Worse of course, our assumption is that the inferior has produced the higher : the non-observant, as the material, and has accidentally produce the being that have been his observer all this time Imagine, we here have at the university microbiology, physics, doing study after study to learn more of the substance, the substance that we do not know what it is.
A quantum physicists recently said that no such material exists, it is only a dehydrated state of consciousness, because the background of the subject is aware of one way or another. This is one of the theories of quantum physics actually, but it is something that one Goswami confirm when he said that really the collapse of the evolutionary circumstances may arise from the intervention of an consciouselement , and not vice versa. the self conscious is superior to matter, we must come to this terms to enter to the the phenomenon of faith. In advance, we must understand that faith is faith in myself, in me as consicous unity , and then I find that you areanother conscious unity and have faith and we get to talk: how are you ? And you tell me: well, here I am. And I wonder where you come from? And you tell me: i dont know and i ask you : where you are going ? And you answer: i do not know either. That rare thing, no? We are two consious units that are getting in touch in this vast cosmos. have You heared something from which we can come from or if afterlife exists? And you say the truth, I have not heard anything. So we began to compare, suddenly there is some power of our hearing or tongue thta makes us raisemakes us be born. We do not know exactly how or where or when, but it happened before and is still happening. I am talking about and you are listening, then you are going to ask questions and comment and I will listen to us to make progress, so that you have not wasted our time coming to this conference and to take a step forward in investigation of his own being and his own way. So, we starts here untill a person who said : that I have seen a light. a light ? yes a light...the sun light? answer : no ,,but how ? a light ? a special light? yes a light that is called internal light.The internal light according to school Brahmins is the light that lets you see the light. yes a light that is called internal light.The internal light according to school Brahmins is the light that lets you see the light. What is light?in oida cames the de word vid: vid is vision is why do we see ? why does ther is the sun ? what is the sun? what is the astro king ? what is the marvelous star ? in all the natural religions adn the ancient cultures have worshiped the astro king of course yes, also worship to our mother earth Ancient cultures had a lot of respect, not like today that it is thought jsut to be a bit of land, while the materialists seeking only gold. Then with the land we do what we want because thought we had much until we realized that the calculation was wrong, because now we have problems with water, trees, etc.. we do problems to our environment Then the man watching the earth, watching the sun was impressed. The sun gives us light, but also gives us life? no he is not the element that fisically give birth to me or you who was then ? was another strengh diferent to the sun this is the vid the vision that form part of the self as his consciousness the consciousness is so incredible that capacitates us to see the sun see the sun if you dont have eyes ? you cant for this is so important to have eyes to see the sun there are two cissions the vision of the sun of the soul and what is called oida; i know in india oida come from the word veda and means truth So we try to define truth, we as humans always have to define truth. is like a human adiction .For that we have the judicial system, where the judge says that everything must be harmonized on the basis of truth and the same witnesses say: I will speak the truth and nothing but the truth.
So the truth is very important, is what we really want to see. Veda is the vision and the truth or the science of the soul. You know another word that means science of the soul? Psychology. Is the science of light, the science of consciousness and that is where we need to open up and make a quantum leap A bit detached from the previously accepted notions and preconceptions that have been incorporated into our modus vivendis, most of all as a justification. As in the material world we do many things but one always wants to justify As if the mind is a machine that produces excuses and justifications. So for our materialistic and selfish life our lives we need a justification, and materialism is the perfect justification But if we look a little history of the faith, we will see that the man was very mistic before the rise of crude materialism of today. I hope you can meditate a little on this. the importance in the faith is in education and the faith in our lives.
