35 - Six Birthday Gifts: Gift One – The Gift of Rededication

From Other Worlds by Torkom Saraydarian, p. 412.

On birthdays, we can rededicate ourselves to our Teacher, to the Teaching and to its guidance.

We can rededicate ourselves to the labor carried on in the name of Beauty, Goodness, Righteousness, Joy, and Freedom.

We can rededicate ourselves to focus on the purpose of our life.

34 - Six Birthday Gifts - The Beginning

From Other Worlds by Torkom Saraydarian, p. 412.

On birthdays, we can meditate for a few hours to receive the message of our birthday.  Which is the most essential work we must do, and what is the most essential direction we must take?

Then we need to ask ourselves what we are going to do and then make a decision in the light of the Most High.  Pray, meditate, and then ask what you should do.  Sometimes you are given a clear impression of what you need to do, and you can start right away.  At other times you get the impression that nobody is going to tell you what to do, and that it is your business to decide and find out on your own. Ask your Soul, “What am I going to do during this new year?” Then make projects and plans for the year.

33 - The Peace Messenger of the Iroquois Nation

Hiawatha and the Great Peace

Book By Torkom Saraydarian
Reviewed by Dr. Robert Constas

The Legend of Hiawatha and the great Native American prophet, Deganawidah, is one of the most inspiring stories in all religious and political history. This legend is based on historical events occurring before Columbus came to the Americas in 1492. Virgin birth, miracles, cannibalism, and black magic are parts of a story about transformation of character, the establishment of a lasting political and social structure in America, and the foundation of representative democracy that led to the formation of the American Constitution.

In, Hiawatha and the Great Peace, Torkom Saraydarian superimposes on this legend his version of what likely occurred, weaving in and out of the history the inspired masterful oratory of Hiawatha. Being the prominent character of the book, Hiawatha speaks messages of spiritual and political wisdom, expressed in great simplicity and beauty. It is as if someone who was actually there recorded the speeches, and used the power of verbal music to convey the essence of the meaning. This is the expression of Saraydarian’s genius.

32 - Torkom Saraydarian: Evoking Enthusiasm For A Magnificent Future

Book Reviews By Leon Fermanian

Torkom Saraydarian has authored countless books, booklets, educational videos, and musical compositions in an effort to bridge the gap between spiritual principles and the practical life.

His books, which have been translated into German, Portuguese, Greek, Spanish, Armenian and other languages, are forged in the fire and light of six decades of continuous meditation, extensive synthesis of world religions and esoteric practices, and field experiences in spiritual counseling.

According to market research in self-help and psychology books, the US market was worth $9.59 billion in 2005. The market grew more than 24% from 2003-2005 and expected to grow 11.4% yearly through 2010.

This quantum growth indicates that the reading public's search for tools and formulae to better survive and flourish in the coming years is gaining unprecedented momentum. At long last, books on angels, the caretaking of the soul, the supremacy of love are now firmly lodged in best seller lists and even in community college courses!

31 - Leadership and Free Will

From The Mysteries of Will Power by Torkom Saraydarian, p. 109.

In coming centuries, philosophers will not talk so much about the free will but about the united wills of nations and humanity.

A great leader in the future will be considered one who has a greater number of wills united with his will. Or, a great leader is one who is able to unite his will with a greater number of wills. Thus the great leader will represent a group, a nation, even humanity. All component parts of the will of the leader will work in unison to carry on the fulfillment of a great plan to reach a great purpose.

The process of unification of wills is a very long, painful, complicated, strenuous, dangerous path.

Every degree of unification of wills creates a leader, a group leader. Such a leader must not only labor to fuse wills of his associates, but he must also carefully watch his own will in order to avoid manipulating the wills of others or building his separate will.

30 - Finding the Causes of Defeat is Sometimes More Important Than Your Temporary Success

From Dynamics of Success by Torkom Saraydarian, p. 23.

Remember that in failure you are not going to condemn even yourself, but instead, scientifically look for the causes. Sometimes to find such causes of defeat is more important than your temporary success.

Often your success last for a few years, but when you eliminate the causes of failure in you, your success becomes a continually growing adventure.

Depend on yourself and make your success the fruit of your own labor. Of course, do not forget that you must express gratitude to the Invisible Forces who helped you because you helped yourself.
