Right Concluding

[590] We should get into the way of thinking exactly and develop a healthy doubt of the given: an uncritical acceptance can quickly lead to aberrations. Entire theories come down if the fundamentals are not right. We should remember that provability in the really important things is often replaced by plausibility: Statements can only be supported or confirmed by other ones.

[591] So it makes no sense to apply or aspire inconsistent terms, such as perfection, to L. A model of L that is contradictory must be discarded. L is not simple or extreme. We must take the trouble to project our thoughts in L and to balance the pros and cons of our world and meaning of them. If we remember that nothing is alien to L, we know what L has experienced.

[592] If our world is hard, so L has experienced hardship by zerself. If we have to die, we know that we must transform like L. If our body remains, we know that we cannot need it in the subsequent world. If we recognise that we live in a relatively simple, finite world, we can conclude, because we can think more complicated things that the subsequent worlds will be more complex.

[593] If we can imagine eternity with all that still could be experienced, we can conclude that it is imminent to us for justice reasons: Why should L keep back to us something decisive, if the highest and most noble qualities culminate in zer? Who attains a great age, as a rule, has also experienced a lot. Rarely a possible increase is missed in life.

[594] If we recognise that the world is also bad and we can imagine a better, we can conclude, if we have no memories of past worlds that the subsequent world is better, and be grateful that the bad world is at the beginning and not at the end of our development. If we pay attention to the reports of near-death experiences, we know that death is something beautiful, what compensates dying.

[595] If we know that references to the substances and the many are enough, we can conclude that we are not dependent on matter after death. If we know that just the same can impinge on the same, we can conclude that mental and emotional world in each case have something in common with the physical one. The intellectual and emotional world is extended like the physical one: References connect everything, the many separates.

[793] We should be mindful of a certain etiquette. Our behaving should always be comme il faut, although obstacles appear. Every culture may provide different, an adaption should always be possible. If we face an annoying habit, we should do so without dread: One need not follow every fad. L appreciates the steadfast and those that preserve an independent thinking.

[794] We should have done in our lives also something unusual in that L takes zis pleasure. Who only drifts from life cannot come close to L. Civil courage is a great asset. Sneaks punish themselves. Who is rebelling against the stronger should first consider what ze does. Violence is still far from being eradicated, and too many go with it the primrose path.

[795] Numbers are selecting markings of the many and constructions out of it. One cannot define what numbers are without going circular. The sensual perceivable itself is nameless: only our thinking with the mind creates terms that make up our cognitions by the assigned references. The sensual makes up only a tiny fraction of all possible cognition.

[781] An individual cannot suspend the suffering in the world or brace zerself against L's plan, but ze can alleviate suffering and fulfil L's plan for zerself. We may treat ourselves to that what we believe to be due to us from L. This can be variably much in every life. L dislikes a life on the fat of the land just as little as that in abject poverty. We have to correct this in every case - for us or for others.

[782] One has not to keep up with fashions, but should keep one's mind on a well-groomed appearance: to stunt oneself aesthetically does justice to nobody. We need self esteem and, if L looks at us, ze shall take a shine to us. Who is courageous sets zis own standards; who wants to be conform floats with the current. One cannot say flatly what is better: it counts the valuation of the entire personality.
