Loyalty

Sat, 03/21/2009

Loyalty is the way in which a mature and integrated mind behaves. Loyalty indicates undivided wholeness of consciousness and shows richness of the mind. When the mind is not integrated, it is feverish, disloyal and opportunistic.

Disloyalty comes out of opportunism. Opportunism is being shortsighted about one’s destiny. Integrity or wholeness is essential to be healthy. A divided mind will gradually lead to schizophrenia and other mental and physical disorders. Loyalty is a real strength and will have the support of nature in the long run.

Fear and ambitions are impediments to loyalty. Loyalty is needed, both, in the material and spiritual plane. To destroy, create or maintain any institution, group or society, loyalty is essential.

Loyalty means believing in the continuity of commitment. Honoring commitment is loyalty. It takes you beyond the duality of craving and aversion.

Responsibility, dedication and commitment are the limbs of loyalty.

A loyal mind is a “Yes”-mind. The purpose of asking questions is to get an answer. The purpose of all answers is to create a “Yes!”

“Yes” is an acknowledgment of knowledge. This “Yes” mind is a quiet, holistic and joyful mind. The “No” mind is an agitated, doubting and miserable mind. Loyalty begins with a “Yes” mind and starts to perish with a “No” mind.
