“New meanings only emerge amid conflict, and conflict persists only in the refusal to espouse the higher values connoted in superior meanings.” [UB 100:4.1]
Thought Adjuster: “Where lays the fine demarcation line between meanings and values? The mind identifies meanings, whereas the soul craves values—love being the most-coveted one, as well as the critical piece needed to solve the riddle of your existence.
“Your physical body interacts with material reality, and its contentment depends on many external factors. The sensual pleasures it registers are short-lived unless harmonized with the mental and spiritual levels of its being-ness.
“Your mind is the in-built endowment that assists you in understanding your environment, as well as your existential purpose. There is no meaning without an underlying intelligent purpose. Your mental quest is in step with the Cosmic Law of Cause and Effect. What provides your mind with a certain measure of contentment and relief, is when it gets to the bottom of what boggles it. Indeed, ever-growing understanding is a prerequisite to a productive life, as it helps you set 'meaningful’ objectives.
"What about your spirit? How do you foster soul joy? By becoming increasing Godlike. It involves the pursuit of the eternal and absolute values of Truth, Beauty, and Goodness—LOVE. Due to their never-depreciating cosmic currencies, such values are ‘keepers,’ once you come to embody them. They trickle down the other layers of your being and are the catalysts for genuine happiness. “The highest happiness is indissolubly linked with spiritual progress. Spiritual growth yields lasting joy, peace which passes all understanding.” [UB 100:4.3]
“Love is the Harmonizer. It resolves conflicts—internal and external. Its pursuit is the best motivator ever, as it will attune your whole being to its supernal influence, as well as lead you to uncover meanings in the process. Indeed, love makes any existence both 'meaningful’ and ‘valuable.' It is a package deal.”
