THE ETERNAL LIFE
THE ETERNAL LIFE

As disciples of the Great School, you should be generous and give out the Divine Word abundantly – like Christ, who fed thousands of people with five loaves of bread. Whatever each of you has heard, accepted, and put into practice, let him give it out to those people that are genuinely interested. The one, who talks, might become a public speaker. The one, who does not speak, cannot become a public speaker; the one, who studies, might become a learned man; the one, who does not study, cannot become a learned man; the one, who sings, might become a singer; the one, who does not sing, cannot become a singer; the one, who loves, comes back to life; the one, who does not love - dies; the one, who loves Truth, might become a free man; the one, who does not love Truth, will become a slave.

Christ said to the wealthy man: “One thing you are short of.” One thing all the contemporary people are short of. A young man went to a qualified potter to follow the trade. As he worked for three years, he decided that he has already followed the trade, so he told to his master: Please announce that I am now a master, for I am already a man of age - I would like to get married and work on my own.

His master agreed, gave him the right to work as a master and sent him to work on his own. The young man made a lot of pottery, observing all the rules he had adopted from his master and put the pottery into the oven to bake. What was his surprise, when he saw, that after baking them all the pottery cracked. He quickly went to his master and told him about the disaster. His master told him: in order that your pottery does not crack, you should stay with me for another three years. – I’ll stay, because I want to learn this art as well, for no one buys cracked pottery.

This is cruel. The man worked probably for 20+ years for the master and master still took advantage of him.
Could be compared to interests of the banks (who are bank owners?)

Yeah, that's a honest culture, the biblical one. You have the same story with Laban, who stole 7 years of Jacob's life and cheated him all the way, just for his own comfort.

One day Chuang Tzu and a friend were walking by a river. &Look at the fish
swimming about,& said Chuang Tzu, &They are really enjoying themselves.&

&You are not a fish,& replied the friend, &So you can't truly know that they
are enjoying themselves.&

&You are not me,& said Chuang Tzu. &So how do you know that I do not
know that the fish are enjoying themselves?&
