Question: How is it possible for anyone to reach the level of tolerance Martinus talks about? There are many people I cannot tolerate, let alone love, and I cannot see how I will ever reach that point.


Martinus Answer: Loving one's neighbour does not depend on the will alone but, like a gift for music, is based on an innate talent. An innate talent is again a result of previous training or practice in perhaps many previous lives. This practice eventually results in the culmination of the talent, and the individual then appears as a genius in the field concerned.

A large part of the training of moral genius or the perfect ability to love one's neighbour occurs automatically; this part is therefore outside the control of the will. But I will mention here a few of the most important elements in that part of the training of the above mentioned ability which is subject to the will, and with which the individual can work consciously on his own growth towards a true and perfect manifestation of love.

 
iscard the concept of "enemies" from your consciousness.
   

 

ever retort against anger, slander or other forms of
  unpleasantness directed against you.
 
 
ever say anything evil about anyone or anything.
   
 
e absolutely truthful and honest in all the situations of
  life.
   

 

e absolutely uninfluenced by flattery, praise and criticism.
   

 

ever take part in killing, wounding or mutilating.
   
 
ever let your thoughts deviate from being concerned with
  how you can best serve your fellow beings. In so doing you
  will be practising the very highest form of yoga or the most
  perfect training of that part of your development which is
  within the scope of your will and which together with the
  other part of the refining of your nature by life itself, will
  ultimately lead you forward to becoming a moral genius
  and transform you into a perfect being, a God-like human being.
