If the doctor gives you the wrong diagnosis, and then the wrong prescription, no amount of commitment and sincerity in consistently taking the recommended dosage will be of any value, for all efforts will be absolutely useless to addressing and then curing the ailment. Why? Because the underlying diagnosis is wrong! So once the diagnosis is wrong, everything else falls apart, for the end can be foreseen, despite all effort.
Where am I going with this? Simple: every concept we hold IS a form of spiritual diagnosis. Once it is wrong, everything collapses! For the end can be clearly foreseen through that concept. Thus, as wrong concepts and spiritual misdiagnosis are rampant today…any serious student of knowledge today will tell you that the real battle today is inwardly in the region of spiritual concepts (mark well: NOT the same as religious ideology!). The battle is in a deeper region of the spirit today, not soft words, emotions, catchphrases, empty quotes, feelings, social trends, thoughts, and the like…but the actual concept deeply rooted within them, and is being expressed through them. The battle is in the conceptual generator in the essence of man, in the human spirit proper.
This is where the real battle today is won and lost. And that is why anyone today who is a serious helper to his fellowman will FIRST of all address the deepest roots of the spiritual concepts informing everything about our thinking and actions. For this is the arena of diagnosis that, only once properly done, is any real treatment and convalescence at all possible.
Consequently, this should also help explain the real driving force behind all my works.
