The Art of Teaching and Learning - Part IV

(Lecture given in Buenos Aires, August 19th, 1948 by Carlos Bernardo Gonzalez Pecotche*)

How many times have we not heard somebody say that he would like to find his own self? Don't these words, fueled with anxiety, imply that he has lost sight of himself, or that he got lost since he cannot find himself? It is in these or similar conditions that many people arrive at the logosophical source. Would it not be opportune to ask here how they plan to find themselves? Do those who seek themselves have even a remote idea of what they truly are? When they are confronted, would they be able to recognize themselves? Have they formed an exact image of the one they are looking for? Because it has often happened that by introducing the absentee they exclaimed: "This is not me! Imagine that!" and continue thereafter the search that turns more fruitless every time. The fact, simply stated, is that everyone molded a false image of what he believed himself to be, and as result, one seeks in vain what his illusion generously adorned with qualities and virtues. No one, therefore, wants to be what he is in reality, hence the disappointment in finding oneself.

In the face of this reality, Logosophy, with its cognitions, allows the person to clearly identify the problem and helps the one who yearns for self-betterment, by offering elements of great value that move him to undertake a conscious process that culminates in converting him into what he had imagined himself to be, and who in reality he was not. This real encounter with oneself will produce the awakening of a truly fecund life destined to achieve lofty designs of good.

Life is the experimental field where battles occur and where each one wins or is defeated; but it is also the stage where one's spirit is truly tempered and where, with one's great will and enthusiasm, one begins to build a new and lofty destiny.

Naturally, all this must make one reflect with serenity. Each one will have to decide on whether to continue with resolve to be guided by the logosophical cognition or desist due to his inertia which will drag him towards other paths. If the decision is to continue, one will have to march without being detained, as he studies, analyzes, observes and always extracts from each observation happy conclusions.
