"All that is required of us is that we should, in patience and sincerity, surrender and submit our own will to the Will of God."
" It does not arise through any human action or volition, nor by the use of the heart and mind, but simply by the Will and Grace of God."
"The latihan is thus unadulterated worship of God through surrender to God's Will, and its action is one of purification and inner growth. All of us have many impurities, both those inherited and those acquired through our own mistakes. There is much that needs to be put right in us, and this correcting is done in a way that we could not possibly do for ourselves. No teaching, no imposed discipline and no imitation, but only the Power of God, can penetrate to the level within us at which this work must be done. Only God can know what is necessary for each of us. This is why there is no teaching in Subud by man to man; God alone is the teacher.
This process of purification is a gradual one and goes according to the needs of each individual, his capacity to receive it, and his willingness to accept it. The power that works in the latihan is infinitely strong, but it forces no-one against his will. In so far as we accept and submit our own will to the Will of God the process goes forward. It begins on the physical level and frequently results in an improvement in physical health, but its action can never be predicted. All that can be said is that each one receives what is truly right and necessary for oneself, so long as one truly surrenders and submits one's own will with patience and sincerity. The rate at which purification proceeds varies for each individual and cannot be hurried or assisted by any efforts on our part. All that we can do is to accept what we receive and to refrain from wrong behaviour that might undo the work that is being done within us. "
I love fatalist religions
Just another sect on this earth
Looks like a fashiontrend revival of the 70's.
