Beloved Dhyana Siddhi,

Love. Fear cripples consciousness.

And, fear is the source of unconsciousness.

That is why without transcending fear, no one can attain to full consciousness.

But what is fear?

Fear is awareness of death without knowing what death is!

Fear exists in the gap between you and your death.

And if there is no gap, no space, then there is no fear.

Do not think death as something outside you.

Because it is not.

And do not think death as something in the future.

Because it is not.

Death is within you.

Because death is the other side of life.

Life cannot exist without death.

They both belong to the same energy as positive and negative poles.

So do not identify yourself with life, because you are both.

The identification with life creates the gap.

And, death has nothing to do with future it is always here and now.

Every moment it is.

And, when one ceases to regard it as something outside oneself and, so to speak, draws it into his consciousness and assimilates the idea of it, one is completely changed.

He is in all truth, born again.

And, then, there is no fear.

Because then there is no gap.

"Dear Sirs: A. Mr. John Sherman has written us from a
town in Ohio, U.S.A., as to the profits that may be made in the
National Banking business under a recent act of your Congress
(National Bank Act of 1863), a copy of which act accompanied his letter.

Apparently this act has been drawn upon the plan formulated here
last summer by the British Bankers Association and by that Association
recommended to our American friends as one that if enacted into law,
would prove highly profitable to the banking fraternity throughout
the world.

Mr. Sherman declares that there has never before been such an opportunity
for capitalists to accumulate money, as that presented by this act and
that the old plan, of State Banks is so unpopular, that
the new scheme will, by contrast, be most favorably regarded,
notwithstanding the fact that it gives the national Banks an
almost absolute control of the National finance.

'The few who can understand the system,' he says 'will either be so
interested in its profits, or so dependent on its favors, that
there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other
hand, the great body of people, mentally incapable of
comprehending the tremendous advantages that capital derives
from the system, will bear its burdens without even suspecting
that the system is inimical to their interests.'

Please advise us fully as to this matter and also state whether
or not you will be of assistance to us, if we conclude to establish a
National Bank in the City of New York...Awaiting your reply, we are."
