An enlightened man and an enlightened woman will see no level of existence as unspiritual, for they will observe the spirit in the whole of reality of all the levels. They will observe everything as God. If therefore conscious God in form of one human being makes love with a conscious God in form of another human being, it will be considered to be holy and blessed by the wise, while the fools will consider it to be dirty. Their inner filth soils everything it touches. If the Divine love of two beings wants to remain present on the physical plane, instead of withdrawing from it, it is perfectly clear that sex will be a direct consequence of that decision, sex not for the sake of reproduction, but for the sake of expression and manifestation of love.
The company that produces overpriced soap of lower quality will perish, because its products won’t be bought by anyone. So, it is visible from the example of the soap that the money is the key element that keeps something in existence. Without money it is not possible to obtain the means necessary to live and act, without money one literally dies.

Evil that is done for the greater good is just evil, nothing more. Never ever do anything that even in a slightest way opposes the voice of your conscience. Never. There are no excuses. Excuses have to be cast away as mere garbage, as lies. Satan is a liar and the father of lies, and he stands not firmly in the truth for in him there is no truth22. And the truth is that voice of conscience, which we smother with reasons and with “the higher good” and with “it has to be done”. What has to be done is only what is done gladly, out of joy, gladness, fulfillment, that makes us shine, what we can honor ourselves with in public, the thing that the voice of our conscience demands.
