Life - only belongs to God, for he is life
"In all religions, the supreme God is seen as the unique source of life. It is he who gives life, and he who withdraws it. He is the master of life, because he is life. But, what do we know about life? We can do no more than enumerate its many manifestations and say that in it, all things are possible, that it contains all gifts. But as for life itself, it is still a mystery.

As for God, so for life: all our attempts to grasp its secrets are destined to fail. While playing sorcerers’ apprentices, biologists in their laboratories may soon have some success in their tinkering, this may delude them for a moment into thinking that they have become masters of life. But they will soon be obliged to acknowledge their failure, for life belongs to God alone. God gives life, but he does not reveal the secret of his creation, it is his secret alone."

Evolution, our - depends on the stimulation we receive from the physical, psychic and spiritual realms
"Alone, and left to themselves, human beings cannot evolve: they need stimulation from the outside world, from nature, from events, and of course from other human beings. They need to see, to hear, to have encounters, and even to receive shocks and to suffer. If they are not roused, shaken up, they will do nothing.

And what is true on the physical and psychic planes is also true in a more subtle way in the spiritual realm. That is why great masters are so necessary: thanks to their pure lives, to their emanations, to their feelings and thoughts of love and wisdom, these beings succeed in stirring something within us. And if they do not always manage to do so, it is not because they are incapable or weak, but because we have allowed ourselves to become buried under too many layers of dull and heavy matter. In order to allow their force and light to penetrate through us, we have inner work to undertake upon ourselves."

‘When you pray, go into your room’ - a commentary
"‘When you pray, go into your room, close the door, and pray to your Father who is there in the secret place.’ How should we understand this secret room of which Jesus speaks?

When someone succeeds in creating silence and peace within themself, when they need to express their love for God and to commune with him, they are already in their secret room. You may wonder where this room is: is it perhaps in the heart, in the mind, or in the soul? In fact, it is a level of consciousness which you strive to attain. For example, you are meditating upon a difficult spiritual problem, you go deep within to find an answer and after a while, there is light within you, and you understand. What has happened? Where has this understanding come from? Your spirit had this answer all the time, but your consciousness was not yet ready to rise to it. So this is the meaning of Jesus’ words: when someone prays or meditates, they lock themself in their secret room, and there they receive revelations."

Forces of evil - always awaken the rise of forces of good
"Even if human beings object to evil and desire good, they are far more convinced of the power of evil than of good. Experience has shown them, they say, that those who want to destroy others and create disorder succeed more readily and more quickly than those who want to be helpful and redress a situation. If this is the case, why should they make such an effort? They do nothing, or are even influenced to behave badly themselves.

But there is one question that they have not asked themselves: this success that evil has achieved, how long will it last? Yes, in order to draw truly valid conclusions, we must introduce the factor of time: how long will these forces of evil continue to triumph? Because the moment evil is set in motion, the forces of good do not remain inactive: they too rise up to re-establish order and justice."

Life and Death - always co-exist
"Life and death are so closely connected that there is always something in life that must die in order for something else to live. Like it or not, it is impossible to escape this dilemma.

We can already observe this in the realm of health. How many sick people who have been advised by their doctors to stop smoking or drinking alcohol to stay alive feel that if they follow this advice, they would feel as if they were dying! Yes, because there are two conflicting ideas of life here: that of the instinctive life and that of the life of reason. If we live one thing, we must renounce another. Those who, on the pretext of living more intensely or more pleasantly, fail to respect the laws of the physical life, become ill and die. You must decide which form of life you prefer, because you cannot live one thing and its opposite at the same time. And this is even more true for the spiritual life."

Obstacles - we overcome them by rising up to our higher self
"Roads and paths on land are generally quite congested with traffic, seas and oceans are less so, and flight paths even less; and we can fly through the air at high speeds without coming across any obstacles.

What meaning does this have for us? Those who remain attached to the earth, that is to say who only seek to respond to the calls of their stomach, belly and genitals, come meet many obstacles in their path because they come up against the material considerations of those close to them. If they tell themselves, ‘Since that’s the way it is, I’ll go out onto the water’, which corresponds to the astral plane: feelings, emotions, they will move forward more freely, but there they will also come into conflict with other people’s desires and passions. ‘So then, I’ll go up into the air’, the mental plane, the domain of thought. It’s even better, space opens up more widely before them, but there they will be confronted with people with different philosophical, scientific, religious or political ideas. If they would like to avoid any future obstacles, they need aim to rise above the realm of air, to the subtle, crystal-clear, luminous regions of ether, that is to say to their higher self."

Consideration - for people and for things, and how it influences us
"We only achieve that which we have already envisioned and prepared in our minds. This is a matter worthy of deep reflection. The way in which we consider people and things is what counts and what is effective, and we can verify this in every domain of life.

For example, if you see the person you share your life with as someone who makes it possible for you to satisfy your material needs, to indulge your vanity, and to unleash your sensuality and desires for pleasure, you are linking yourself to the lower forces of the astral plane, and you should not be surprised if, one day, you see all your dreams of happiness collapse. On the other hand, if you make the habit of considering this person as a manifestation of divinity, then through you will connect heavenly powers. You will receive great blessings and will be filled with joy."

Pride and humility - one impoverishes you, the other enriches you
"Proud people imagine they are dependent on nothing and no one, exactly like a light bulb which claims to be the source of light, forgetting that the power station supplies the current. Those who are humble, on the contrary, know that they are not an isolated being, that they are not independent, and that if they do not remain linked to heaven, they will have neither force, light nor wisdom. They sense that they are a link in an infinite chain, the conductor of a cosmic energy which comes from afar and flows through them to all other human beings.

What consequences to these attitudes hold? Proud people forget the source of the currents which manifest through them; they believe they are dependent only upon themself, and sooner or later become a barren land. Humble people are like a valley irrigated by the water that descends from the peaks to fertilise the plains; they receive forces that pour forth constantly from the mountains and thus know abundance. We have not yet understood the wealth of humility."

Self-doubt - how to conquer it
"Spiritual work and the work on oneself is a long and exacting endeavour. When faced with the length of the path to be followed and the obstacles along the way, doubt can creep in and you no longer believe you have the qualities necessary to achieve any results whatsoever. You then feel a kind of division or split within you, and this is very harmful to your psychic life: this terrible self-doubt may gradually paralyze you.

But whatever your reasons for self-doubt, there is only one thing that will prevent this poison from destroying you: the awareness that within you lives a being who is all-powerful, all-knowing and all-loving: the Lord, the Creator of all worlds. And in connecting yourself to him, by relying on him, you can continue to build your inner self."

Future, our - we create it thanks to forces and entities with which we connect
"Every manifestation of physical, psychic and spiritual life gives beings specific wave-lengths and vibrations that connect them automatically to entities and currents in space who have the same wave-lengths and currents. This explains the connections we have with forces of nature. We resonate with certain regions and entities with the same wave-lengths through our thoughts, feelings and actions. And through the force of attraction, sooner or later, we are able to come to meet them.

Initiatic Science gives every human being the means with which to create the future they wish. And it is the quality of their thoughts, feelings and desires that draws them towards the darkness and chaos, or towards the pure, light-filled regions of the divine world."

Work - whatever the conditions may be
"We hear people everywhere complain that the world is in a bad way. And there they go complaining, all they do is complain and they expect others to set to work and improve conditions. Why do they not begin it themselves? No, they wait, and others do the same and wait too... and this can go on forever.

You might say that faced with the immensity of the tasks to be done, you feel discouraged. Well, on the contrary, you must remain courageous, because it is in doing so that you show yourself to be praiseworthy. In pleasant circumstances it is too easy to believe in good and to set to work: everything is simple and agreeable. It is in difficult times that it is important to commit oneself and to persevere, without allowing oneself to be influenced by the conditions. You must learn to count on the powers of the spirit. This is the sign of the true spiritualist: despite bad conditions, despite the storms, spiritualists always try to awaken the powers of the will, of good, and of the light."

Voice of silence, the - conditions to be able to hear it
"Silence is the essential condition that allows us to hear the true word, true revelations. In silence, little by little you feel the messages from the spiritual world reach you, a voice seeks to warn you, to give you advice, to guide you, to protect you...

You might say that you don’t hear this voice. It is because you are making too much noise, not only on the physical level, but also on the astral and mental levels: there are so many chaotic feelings and thoughts that constantly clash within you. This voice that speaks to you is called ‘the voice of silence’, and it even appears as the title of certain books of oriental wisdom. When the yogi manages to calm everything within themself and to stop the flow of their thoughts – because in its movement, thought also creates noise – they then hear this voice of silence which is the very voice of God. "

Inner winters - that we need to prepare ourselves for
"In anticipation of the approaching winter we all know we must prepare ourselves to face the cold: we think about preparing in terms of the heating, the insulation of our houses, warmer clothes, and so on. Unfortunately, people have far less foresight when it comes to facing the winters within them, and when a dark period befalls them, they are defenceless and can only complain that life has no meaning.

It is true that the seasons of the inner life do not return with the same regularity as those of nature, and that they are therefore not predictable. But winter inevitably returns from time to time, and if you learn to observe yourself, each time you will discover certain warning signals within you. So, as soon as you feel this time of cold and darkness approaching, be careful. Prepare the spiritual elements that will continue to sustain the fire and the light within you. Jesus said, ‘Walk while you have the light, so that the darkness does not surprise you.’ This means: make the most of good conditions to arm yourself against the day when you need to face difficulties."

Thoughts and feelings - are like talismans that can attract or ward off influences
"You may, as you are walking down the street, without knowing it, pass through a place where a dishonest deed or even a crime is being committed. If, at that particular moment, you happen to find yourself in a negative inner state or with negative thoughts, you resonate with the vibrations produced by such deeds and fall under their influence. You may then be pushed into doing wrong yourself, without actually realizing it is because of the fluidic emanations you received as you walked by.

This is why it is so important for you to watch the quality of your inner states, because it is the only effective way to protect yourself from dark influences. Do not rely on amulets, talismans or any other kind of trinket offered to you by charlatans. It is down to you; you have to work on your thoughts and feelings so that you may attract only fragrances of purity and light. These are the true amulets that will protect you."

Inner tribunal - rely only on its judgement
"You may become a victim of grave injustices on the part of human beings. If you are really innocent, do everything you can within to resist. Never give anyone the opportunity to harm you or destroy you. Why do you care about what these people think if they are so blind? Just listen to the judgement of the inner tribunal of your conscience, the Divinity that lives within you.

Be concerned above all with being clear about yourself, and always behave with honesty and disinterestedness. Then, tell yourself that who you are; your dignity and your honour, do not depend on what others think of you. Your divine nature supports you, and this should be enough for you to continue walking with your head held high. "


Saturday, November 25, 2017

Prayers - address them instead to entities whose task is to take care of human beings
"In your prayers and meditations, begin by trying to reach the saints, the prophets, the initiates and the great masters, that is, those beings whose mission it is to take care of human beings. Then, you can rise further and invoke the angels because, in the celestial hierarchies, angels are the closest to human beings, and they can hear them and help them. You can also try to invoke the Archangels, but don’t seek to go any higher: the Principalities, the Powers, the Dominions, the Thrones, the Cherubim and the Seraphim, they will not hear you.

There are countless worlds in infinite space inhabited by thousands of beings, and these angelic hierarchies, which have very important work to carry out far away in space, have very little to do with human beings. Those who look after humans are for the most part beings who have lived on earth and have left it, but who remember it: they are still connected to it and have made promises which they intend to keep. You must know that the higher hierarchies exist. You can try to connect to them by pronouncing their names, but know that you will only be heard by the beings but who are closest to human beings."

Intuition - is both understanding and feeling
"Because it has a synthetic view of reality, intuition is true intelligence. It does not need to do research or calculations, its understanding is instantaneous; it penetrates everything with a single glance – the objective and subjective worlds, the exterior and interior – and transmits its findings directly to you.

Intuition is both a feeling and an understanding; you feel things at the same time as you understand them. It is a higher intelligence because it comprehends, in a single moment, the whole of life. And when everyone else is still hesitating and doubting, those who possess this intelligence understand immediately and their vision is infallible. And when reality appears to them in this way – with both aspects, objective and subjective, exterior and interior – they are amazed to discover that everything is in fact very simple."


Thursday, November 23, 2017

Fate, our - is determined by our attitude to the divine world
"Human beings do not seem to be aware that their attitude toward the divine world determines their destiny. Increasingly, instead of bowing before the grandeur of God and glorifying him, they are adopting careless and disrespectful behaviours which thwart his plans and introduce chaos in his creation.

The worst enemy of human beings is pride, this self-important and arrogant attitude which will eventually lead to their ruin. If they want to save themselves, they must learn to regard creation as sacred, to vibrate like the Aeolian harp with each breath of wind, with each current from heaven, to commune with the universe, with the universal Soul and with the cosmic Spirit. During this exchange, energies from the higher world work on them: elements of the greatest purity flow into their soul, while the dark elements leave and are absorbed in immensity."

Third lodge, the -
"In esoteric science, the white and black lodge are the two lodges that operate in the universe. The powers we generally call ‘good’ and ‘evil’ are those of the light and the dark. But the two lodges are dominated by a third lodge, of which even the initiates know very little, for it is a reality that is beyond human understanding. This third lodge is the exclusive domain of God, who is above both good and evil, and who uses them both.

Human beings must not seek to combat the black lodge as they are not armed for this fight. The only thing we can do is to remain connected to the white lodge, to the powers of good and follow their instructions: they will confer on us the elements that will neutralise the secret poisons of the black lodge. And in this way, we will be able to make good triumph while maintaining our strength and peace."

Reflecting well - before taking action
"Before leaping into a task of some importance, try to study the situation carefully. Weigh the pros and cons and even ask for advice, until everything is very clear to you. The blind faith of those who rush into things can only lead to failure. When people do not want to see the reality around them and refuse to take into account all aspects of a situation, they can only fail. Determination is one thing and obstinacy is another. So many undertakings have failed despite the absolute confidence the people had! They lacked experience, they had not properly studied the various aspects of the situation. They imagined that to be motivated with the best intentions and to be completely confident and willing were enough to guarantee success, and that heaven would take care of the rest. No, that is not enough.

But once you have thought it through and you see things clearly, you must not hesitate for one moment: you must put aside the slightest doubt so that you are able not only to act appropriately but to persevere whatever the difficulties."

Painful tasks - consider them as beneficial exercises
"Whatever your circumstances, always remember to analyze yourself so that you know what you are doing, and especially how you are doing it.

For example, every day you are obliged to do certain tasks that are more or less interesting or pleasant. But, pleasant and interesting or not, they have to be done. So, observe carefully how you set about doing a job you do not like very much: you sigh, you grumble, and you go at it without conviction or love, thinking perhaps it was a job for others. You do not realize that your attitude makes the work even more difficult. And then, not only do the efforts you are required to make bring you nothing inwardly, but they destroy you. Whereas if you learn to consider things in another way, if you decide you are going to use this boring work as a chance to become stronger or more intelligent, you will change your state of consciousness and the task will seem less painful."

Building your house on a rock - the meaning of this evangelical parable
"‘Everyone then who hears these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on a rock’, said Jesus. ‘And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not act on them will be like a foolish man who built his house on sand.’ What is this house? It is an image of human beings themselves: if they found their existence on sand, that is to say on unstable ground which will quake with their chaotic thoughts and feelings, it will endlessly sway and eventually collapse.

If our life is to stand firm, we must build it on this rock which represents our higher mental body, the causal plane. As its name – causal – indicates, it is from this plane that the currents flow which influence the mental, astral and physical realms. This explains why the work we can accomplish by rising to the causal plane has repercussions on our thoughts, our feelings, our daily behaviour, and even on our health, as if orders were given from on high to bring order and harmony to our entire being."

Love and hate - manifestations of the same force on two different planes
"When you feel hatred for someone, what is this force that teaches you to pulverise them with a look or even to strike them? And if you love someone tenderly, what is this force that moves you to smile at them, to speak sweetly to them, to hold them tight in your arms and to bring them gifts?

Whether it is love or hate, it is always the same force: sometimes it manifests in the Venusian form and acts with delicacy, expressiveness, poetry, and gentleness, and sometimes it becomes Martian and can shatter everything in its path. Just observe how love which manifests in too low a form can turn into violence. The need to satisfy their desires makes men and women egotistical and cruel, and they do not care about the other person, and are even ready to kill them if they resist. On the contrary, those who wish to manifest the higher degrees of love act with generosity and selflessness, and with consideration for the fulfilment and happiness of the person they love. And yet, in its origins, the force is the same."


Friday, November 17, 2017

Lord’s visit, the - can only take place in a comfortable house
"When you invite someone to stay with you for a few days, you prepare a room for them. You do not just say, ‘Come, come’, without knowing where you are going to put them. All the more so if your guest is someone important. Before extending your invitation, you think about how you are going to welcome them.

Imagine, for instance, that you are expecting a prince or princess to come and stay: are you going to let them go through a dirty, untidy house? Well, believers please forgive me, if I say they treat God in ways they would not dare to treat even their neighbours. They pray to him, ‘Come, Lord’. But, do they prepare a place for the Creator within themselves, a sacred place? No, they invite him to a place that is a total shambles, to a dung heap. Later they are astonished when it is not God who comes to visit them, but some devils who themselves feel quite at home amongst impurities."

Initiatic Science - must not serve materialists
"There is nothing to be greatly admired in the many brilliant, wealthy and powerful people who place no importance on the life of the soul and spirit. Because they do not seek spiritual nourishment, which alone could fulfil them, they are like starving beasts; and their ambition, greed and voracity finally lead them down paths that are dangerous both for themselves and for those around them.

Unfortunately, many so-called spiritualists do not behave any better: they try to satisfy their ambitions and gain the same success as the materialists by the means given to them by Initiatic Science. In doing so they betray the most sacred principles and are thus even more guilty than the materialists. It is clear that they are satisfied and proud of succeeding by these means, but heaven, which does not like to be used for egotistical and self-interested ends, will one day ask them to account for their deeds, and they will be severely punished."

Daily tensions - an exercise to overcome them
"You still do not make use of the many opportunities given to you to unite with the divine world in order to calm yourself and recover your inner balance. And yet, you know very well that the agitation of daily life eventually weakens your nervous system. Human beings are not made to live in this constant tension that drains them of all their energies. It is not normal to run from morning to evening or to be harassed from all sides, and you eventually become worn out, both physically and psychically.

Several times a day, therefore, stop for a few moments. Concentrate and try to create an atmosphere of harmony and love within you and around you. By repeating this exercise often, you will succeed in touching your higher self which will project beneficial rays into all your cells. It is thus that you will restore balance and be able to deal with all your daily tasks again."


Tuesday, November 14, 2017

Spiritual master - their only obligation: guiding us on the path of the light
"You should not ask that a spiritual master be all-knowing and all-powerful. You have the right to ask only one thing of them: that they serve as a link to heaven for you, that they guide you on the path of light, that they show you the way to God.

Moreover, a true spiritual master will not keep you for themself; they will take you further, higher. And if you insist upon staying close to them, they will tell you, ‘No, do not count so much on me. I cannot give you everything. Only God can fulfil you. I can only help you to find the path. If you like, I am like a telephone that enables you to communicate with the divine world, with the heavenly hierarchies, and that is all.’ That is what a true master will say. If they are not a true master, of course, they will make all kinds of promises that will never come true, so it is up to you to be discerning."


Monday, November 13, 2017

Relationships with others - it is important to widen and improve them
"How to get along with others is the most important problem that human beings have to solve every day. Work on yourself, therefore, in order to develop the psychic and moral qualities which will allow you to better understand and accept others. For this is essential; to learn to live with all the others, and not only with your family, your friends, your neighbours, your colleagues, those close to you and so on. You must also be able to relate to all sorts of people who differ from you in age, education, social class, nationality and race, in order to become accustomed very early on to all human situations.

You cannot know ahead of time the encounters life is preparing for you. So unless you are ready and one day are required to face these situations, you will appear closed, unsympathetic, intolerant and sometimes, unintentionally, even mean. Yes, the measure of a person’s evolution is their capacity to meet others and relate harmoniously with them. "

Cosmic forces - humans must seek how to obtain their intervention
"How many believers ask why heaven does not intervene to restore order in world affairs! Well, this shows they are not good psychologists. Without the agreement and willingness of human beings themselves, what is the use of the interventions of heaven? People would neither understand nor appreciate this new order established by heaven and would quickly destroy it. The desire for change must come from human beings.

Yes, if they truly wish to remedy the state of things and right the misfortune in the world, because of what they have suffered and the lessons they have learned, heaven will release other forces, other currents, other energies, and then true changes will take place. But the impulse must come from human beings; they must decide together to work in order to obtain the intervention of cosmic forces. If they do not provide the right conditions for them to intervene, nothing will happen and the sublime intelligences will never decide to get mixed up in human affairs."


Saturday, November 11, 2017

Security - seek it in the world of the soul and spirit
"Each of you must understand that you are a spiritual entity who lives in relationship with the universe, and that you can obtain everything you need from the inexhaustible worlds of the soul and spirit. This will give your life meaning, and you will no longer feel the need to run after ephemeral gains.

So beware: even if nowadays social and material success appear ever more convincingly to be the only ways to guarantee your security, you must not give them priority. Sooner or later you will be forced to admit that this security was an illusion and that in searching for it at all costs, you have wasted a lot of time and energy. If your worth and competency have been recognised and you are offered an important position in any field whatsoever, accept it if you wish. But be vigilant, and never abandon what is essential: the wealth you can gain in the world of the soul and the spirit."


Friday, November 10, 2017

Discouragement - methods to overcome it
"Faced with some failures, you might feel discouraged to the point that you tell yourself, ‘I am incompetent, weak and stupid.’ Very well, you may well be all that, but it is dangerous for you to dwell on it. When you experience states of this kind, show that you still have a little intelligence and make efforts to think, ‘All right, I may not amount to much, but there is a world of rich, beautiful, and wise beings, and I am going to unite with them by means of thought in order to benefit from their qualities and virtues.’ I assure you that this will help you.

Also, try to recall all the wonderful moments of peace, light, and inspiration that you have already experienced, for you have experienced at least some. And since you have experienced them, they cannot be wiped out. Cling to those moments, and little by little, courage and faith will return to you."

Divine will - attune one’s projects to it
"Most people devote their days to the satisfaction of their desires and the realization of their ambitions. Do they ever question the nature of all these calculations, designs and projects? Do they ever think to turn to heavenly beings and ask, ‘O luminous spirits, are we in harmony with your plans? What is your opinion? What do you have in mind for us? Where and how must we work to accomplish your will?’ Very few ask themselves these questions.

Nothing, however, is more important for a human being than to ask the beings of light in the invisible world to enable them one day to carry out the projects of heaven. Because at that very moment, their whole life changes: they are no longer guided by their whims, their weaknesses, and their blindness. In their efforts to know divine will, they put themself on a different track; they take a direction which corresponds to God’s plans, and that is the true life!"

Pregnant woman, a - must protect her child from dark entities
"When a woman is pregnant, dark entities from the invisible world seek to enter through an open door in her and settle in her child. A mother, through her behaviour, is the one who opens and closes the doors. When a pregnant woman feels thoughts, desires or chaotic feelings pass through her that she has never had before, she must be aware this is proof that dark entities are lingering close by. If she does not resist them or protect herself, these entities will enter the child who will then be visited by these entities throughout their life and be prey to them.

If we are to prepare the best possible future for the young generations to come, it is important to know the realities of the psychic world. A mother therefore needs to be vigilant and to find the ‘keys’, that is to say the light-filled thoughts and feelings, that will close the door to the dark entities, and she will be able to protect her child. As for those close to a mother-to-be – her husband, parents, friends, neighbours, work colleagues – they also need to know this and try to create an atmosphere of peace and harmony around her."

Freedom of movement - physically and psychically it depends on our vigilance
"When you feel anxious or distressed, react and keep your thoughts from taking a dangerous downhill direction, catch them and force them to return to this place of light and peace in you that is sheltered from adversity. If you are not vigilant, you have no idea to where an instant of anger, fear, resentment, or discouragement may lead you.

Watch a trapeze artiste or the tightrope walker: how they move freely in the air. But in order to do so, how they have worked! They have this freedom of movement because they have learned not to allow themself to become distracted by extraneous elements which would cost them their concentration and send them hurtling to the ground. In order to remain in the heights, you too must protect your consciousness from disturbances. At the slightest warning, ensure that your thoughts do not stray from the regions of light and inner calm."

Psychic life - its effects on the physical body
"A man is sitting quietly somewhere, his face expresses nothing in particular. But suddenly an impulse comes from deep down inside: a thought, a feeling of fear, love, anger... and then everything changes, his features, the expression of his face, the color of his skin. How can the physical body suddenly change under the impulse of something so impalpable and subtle as a thought or a feeling? Just one emotion, and we blush, or go pale, or are petrified! Sometimes people die because of an emotion. How can an emotion have such power over the physical body?

Everyone is aware of these phenomena, so why have they never drawn the conclusion that it is the psychic life that commands the physical life? The physical body always depends on a psychic or spiritual element above it, which creates or destroys, expands or contracts, which tints, which shapes... Of course it is always possible to influence the body by physical means; they can momentarily improve your health or appearance. But health and beauty depend far more on your thoughts, feelings and on everything making up your inner life."

Renunciation - creating a void within that can be filled with divine virtues
"What can you add to a receptacle that is already full? Nothing. In order to pour something else into it, it must first be emptied. The same applies to human beings: if they do not empty themselves of their weaknesses and bad habits, how can divine virtues and qualities come and establish themselves within them? This is the meaning of renunciation: to renounce is to empty oneself and to get rid of certain elements which are harmful to oneself and to others, so that something that is purer and is filled with more light can be introduced to take their place.

Those who have understood the meaning of renunciation strive to create this necessary void, so that divine qualities come and live within them. They must stop thinking that they will be unhappy if they give up certain pleasures. On the contrary, these insignificant pleasures will be replaced by others that are far greater, and of better quality."

Trowel and sword - the symbolic meaning of these two masonic symbols
"The higher world and the lower world are not separate; in both the universe and in human beings, there are connections between these two worlds. That is why, when humans have a very elevated, very spiritual wish, it can provoke their lower nature which then immediately raises opposing forces. The magnificent things you desire on high awaken contradictory forces and desires in the roots of your being! These tricks of the lower nature triumph with much greater difficulty in the disciple who understands and is enlightened, because they know they must take precautions. While they build their inner temple, they pray to have around them, beings that watch over and protect them.

In early freemasonry, whose philosophy was based on a true science, the mason was represented working with a trowel in one hand, and in the other a sword with which to defend themself. So, while the mason is busy building, they are also vigilant and make sure that in the cover of darkness certain enemies do not try to worm their way into their fortress. And if they do try to enter, the mason wards them off with their sword."

Breathing - extracting the most energy possible from air
"What makes a car run? The release of energy generated when the gaseous mixture in the engine explodes when ignited by a spark. The car then starts and will run for as long as there is fuel in the tank.

The same is true with breathing. If we are to extract the maximum energy from the air that passes through our nostrils, we must compress it by holding it in our lungs. While this compression takes place, our body is at work, activating processes equivalent to ignition and combustion in a car. And, as the air cannot escape, nature opens tiny passages in our body through which it can circulate. Thanks to this retention, energy contained in the air passes through all of these little channels made especially for it by nature, who says to it, ‘This way… that way…’ for along its route nature has placed certain subtle centres – the chakras – which can be activated only through contact with this energy."

Efforts - alone can take us closer to God
"Because God is so great, he neither concerns himself with the mistakes and malice of human beings, nor does he vary according to their behaviour. Therefore, if you feel worried or rejected because you have behaved badly, do not claim that God has withdrawn or that he has rejected you. Instead, make an effort and rectify your mistakes and you will once again feel close to him.

Above all, do not wait for God to forgive you: he has not condemned you, so he has nothing to forgive you for. No purpose is served by beating your breast and saying, ‘I am a sinner. I am a sinner.’ Since you had the power to create the clouds that deprive you of God’s light, you also have the power to disperse them. Everything depends on you, on your attitude. What good do all the advancements in psychology serve if human beings are not able to analyse these vitally important states they experience, to understand them and correct them?"

Last Sacraments, the - their role
"If the Church has instituted what is referred to as ‘the last sacraments’ or ‘the extreme unction’ it is because the moment at which an individual leaves the earth for the other world is of vital importance. The aim is to prepare the soul for the long journey it is about to undertake. The priest or pastor tries to bring the person back to the fundamental issues: they explain it is time to look back at their life, to take stock of their errors, to repent, and to find within them the bond that unites them with the Creator. Some will think it is a little late. Yes, no doubt it is a little late, but it is not too late. Because those who leave their physical body without having prepared themselves for it, without having the faintest notion of life after death, of divine Justice, subsequently suffer greatly because they roam the dark regions of the beyond without understanding what is happening to them.

It is very bad to keep human beings in the mistaken conviction that there is nothing after death. Under the pretext of freeing them from absurd beliefs, on the contrary, they are being prepared for hardships in the other world that are far worse than those they have had to suffer on earth."

Work, time and faith - conditions for success
"Most people readily admit that in order to succeed in the material world, you must be committed and work without cutting corners. But in the spiritual realm they imagine they can obtain results easily and quickly. What a mistake! In the spiritual realm, more so than in the material world, you must first set to work and never relax your effort. Secondly, you must not be in a hurry, because it is a long-term undertaking and time is not a factor. Finally, you must have faith: be convinced that this spiritual work will one day bear fruit, because nature is faithful and true, and the laws which govern it can never be faulted.

Work, time and faith. You do not realise the wealth contained in these three words. We can, of course, present them in a different order: faith, work, and time, and so on. What is essential is to understand that these three elements are connected, and to know how they are connected."

Spiritual practices - help us rediscover light and love
"A disciple who goes to listen to their master or who immerses themself for a few hours in studying their master’s thoughts, feels themself transported into a world of light, purity and love. But then, unavoidably, they return to everyday life where they are obliged to meet all types of people and face all manner of situations. After a while, they notice they no longer have the same faith or the same enthusiasm; they feel that they have once again become dull and heavy, and that their ardour and love have diminished. What has happened? Like a hot liquid that is then exposed to the cold, their temperature has changed. This phenomenon is completely natural. The teaching a disciple receives from a master resembles the contents of a container. Symbolically, the contents are warmer than the prevailing atmosphere, and when they come in contact with it, their temperature gradually drops.

But what is lost can always be replaced. This is the purpose of prayer, meditation and all spiritual practices: to seek at the source those luminous and warmth-giving elements that you have lost."

Old age - period when we taste the fruit of our efforts
"Ageing is often seen as a trial. Yes it is not pleasant to lose the physical and intellectual capacities you once possessed. But old age can also be the best stage of one’s life. For those who have nourished a high ideal during their youth and adulthood, many things improve during old age: understanding and lucidity, for example. How can this be explained? It can be said that the subtle bodies did not follow the same processes as the physical body. The legs, the eyes and the ears of the elderly begin to betray them, as does their brain in some ways, but the life of their soul and spirit becomes increasingly rich and abundant. It is as if they have finally tasted the fruits of their efforts.

So, prepare yourselves, think about enriching yourself within while you are still young, so that later you may taste this abundance of fruits."

Holy pictures - are only the point of departure for prayer
"Suppose you have an icon or a holy picture at home: morning and evening you light a candle in front of it, you pray and ask it to protect you. But it is not the icon itself that will protect you. What will protect you is the inner state induced within you by your prayer, the effects of which remain imprinted in you and guide you in the way of light, love, and peace.

You are therefore the only one who can really do something for yourself, through the connection you make with heaven. Statues or holy pictures are only a starting point, a support. "

‘Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another’ - an interpretation
"Jesus said, ‘Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.’ What was the nature of Jesus’ love? What did he see in a human being? The response is found in the Sermon on the Mount when he addressed his disciples and the crowd that had followed him, and said, ‘Be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect.’ What this means is that in his disciples and in all those who came to him, Jesus saw the image of the heavenly Father, of the Divinity, and it was to this Divinity within them that he addressed himself as he showed them the path to perfection.

While the scribes and Pharisees only saw the pitiful appearance of all the paralytics, the lepers, the possessed, prostitutes, adulterers, thieves, and so on, Jesus recognised in all beings a soul and a spirit that simply asked for the conditions to allow the manifestation of their beauty and light. It was these souls and these spirits that he loved, and it was to them that he spoke. And he asks us to do likewise."

Salvation - is in the divine imprint that humans carry within
"To desire privileges and powers that others do not have is an innate tendency of human nature. And there are many ways people can dominate others: if they cannot succeed on the physical plane, they attempt it on the psychic plane. Lacking other means of control, people motivated by ambition, greed and fanaticism have used religion to dominate their fellow humans psychologically. So we cannot help but observe that religion has too often become an institution with little concern for spirituality, and that it is no longer able to offer salvation to the faithful.

Fortunately, the Creator has marked each human being with his seal. This mark is inscribed deeply within them, and allows them, whenever they truly desire, to discover in their heart and soul that which religion does not take the trouble to reveal. If they look for this seal within themselves, they will find salvation."

Perfection - should remain a rule of life
"To improve oneself is a difficult undertaking, and many abandon the work when they see what slow progress they are making, whereas others, disappointed with themselves, are in despair. Well, the first are weak and lazy, and the others are proud. There is no point in losing hope when you see that you are far from living up to the magnificent image that you dreamed of for yourself. You must be humble and say, ‘Alright, you are not successful this time, and maybe you will not succeed next time, but that is no reason to stop trying.’

You must never lose the desire to progress. It is not the end of the world if you fall down, but each time you must make the effort to get up again. In all circumstances of life, what is most important is to hold onto the will and desire to continue improving oneself. There are always improvements to be made. And the idea of perfection is an inseparable part of human existence."

Efforts - technical progress should not exempt us from making efforts
"Because there are so many machines, instruments and products that do everything for us and make our lives effortless, human beings are sinking deeper and deeper into laziness, both physical and mental. How much activity, how many exercises of endurance or will-power have they given up since the invention of cars, elevators, washing machines, calculators, computers – and medicines!

Of course, I approve of all this progress, because I too benefit from all the advantages that come with it. The thing is that if human beings are not careful, they will become accustomed to not making any effort and will always wait for some new machine or product to be invented to make things even easier for them... until their will becomes totally paralyzed. If human beings are to develop correctly, they must make an effort every day; they must not stop doing some physical activity, and especially should continue their mental and psychic activities. No matter what area of our life, we must never give in to finding the easy way out. "

Artist - must see themself as material for their creation
"When people meet artists – painters, poets, musicians – whose works they admire, they are often surprised to discover that the person and their behaviour are completely devoid of the beauty found in their creations: they emanate neither light, nor poetry, nor harmony. Why? Because for the most part, artists are content to create works outside themselves using materials exterior to themselves. It is on these outer materials that they concentrate their efforts. Well, this is insufficient. Art must not merely be confined to somewhere within the creation, but it must also exist in daily life. The true artist is one who can see themself as material for their creation.

All the methods of the spiritual life are at our disposal, to help and inspire us in this work. Yes, it is within ourselves first and foremost that we must create poetry and music, harmonious forms and movements and shimmering colours, so that all those around us, in the visible and invisible worlds alike, can benefit from them."

Mantras - saying them out loud
"A mantra, a sacred formula, is like a mould that must be filled with intense life, that is to say, with love and faith. And because sound acts on matter, it is important to say this mantra out loud. It is true that saying something out loud can be seen as just air in motion, but for invisible forces to act, words are necessary. When spoken aloud, a formula releases currents that rise up through the heavenly hierarchies to the throne of God. We must pronounce it at least three times, so that it can have an effect on the three worlds: physical, psychic and spiritual.

Tireless repetition of the same formula penetrates the depths of the subconscious where the roots of our being are found and it is here, in the roots, that we have great possibilities for transformation."


Saturday, October 21, 2017

Concentration - necessary to focus your energies
"When a virtuoso interprets a piece of music, a student sits an exam or a tightrope walker performs their act, if all the energies within them were not concentrated and in harmony, the virtuoso would play false notes, the student would make mistakes and the tightrope walker would break their neck. Because as soon as there is dissipation and dissonance within, all the inner forces let go and scatter, and the person is no longer supported.

You have often experienced this type of thing, but have you ever stopped to consider how this affects the whole of life? If you give in to haste, disorder and agitation, the forces and entities of harmony within you are repressed and paralyzed. Therefore, several times a day, stop for a few minutes and try to introduce harmony within you. All the forces, all the good entities that have until then not had a chance to manifest, will then be mobilized and available to help you continue your work."

Love - maintaining the poetic nature of its beginnings
"Nothing is more poetic than the beginning of a love affair. A man and a woman meet, they smile at each other, exchange a few words or notice each other from afar and suddenly they feel inspired and become poetical within. But as soon as this love becomes physical, their feelings of wonder start to fade. How many people have noticed this! Yes, they have noticed it, but they do not draw any lessons from it: they make no effort to protect their blossoming love by remaining in the subtle regions for as long as possible.

Through curiosity and greed, men and women seek to go out immediately and explore the terrain, and even what lies beneath! Then, of course, things are no longer the same. They do not appreciate each other in the same way and are no longer in wonder, one for the other, as they know each other too well in situations which were not always the most attractive. Why do they not try to keep a certain distance between them so as to live as long as possible in the world of beauty, poetry, and light?"

Needs - direct them to the spiritual level where the possibilities are infinite
"As long as human beings place such importance on material gain and social position, they will always be in conflict with one another. For there is a limited amount that can be acquired in the physical realm, and it is impossible for the whole world to bathe in opulence. But this does not mean that the whole world cannot be happy, for in fact happiness is not opulence.

It takes very few material goods to provide for our existence and for us to be happy, but only if we understand that we must work to orient our needs toward the psychic world, and beyond to the spiritual world, where the possibilities are infinite. There, each of us can eat and drink all we want without fear of being in conflict with our neighbours or being robbed of our wealth."

Fear - is conquered by the light
"Human existence can be compared to a journey through a forest or the ascent of a great mountain. What efforts we must make and what dangers we must confront before we arrive at the goal! And if we undertake this journey or this ascent in darkness, the risk of losing our way, of dangerous encounters, or of falling to the bottom of a precipice is great. In darkness, not only are we truly exposed to danger, but the greatest danger is the fear that we create ourselves, not knowing what to make of the noises and the shadowy forms we see stirring around us. To be afraid is to give power to that which we fear, to prepare the conditions it needs to do harm.

Symbolically, this is the life of human beings when they do not possess true knowledge. Only true knowledge which accompanies them like a light can give them security and peace. Once they have this light, even if they have hardships to endure, since they will see things as they are, they will continue to walk with confidence."

Love God - in order to love human beings better
"So much horror has been perpetrated by people claiming to act out of their love of God. Today, as a result, those who speak of this love increasingly attract only suspicion. Now people think they must look to their fellow human beings, and abandon this remote divinity that has long provided a pretext to persecute them.

But the truth is that if we do not learn to love God first, we will not know how to love other human beings, for our love will be neither intelligent nor enlightened. We must not place so much trust in what comes from the human heart, for although it certainly contains good things, it also contains greed, violence and possessiveness. The human heart is a dark cavern from which all sorts of monsters can emerge, so we must purify and enlighten it, which we can do only if we learn to turn towards the Creator. In order to maintain the right orientation, even when we are thinking of our fellow human beings, we must never forget the Creator."

Inspiration - the conditions for it to pay us a visit
"To become true creators, people must call on certain faculties within themselves in order to contact the spiritual world, because it is from the spiritual world that they receive what we call inspiration.

It is important to know what conditions are favourable for inspiration, because inspiration does not visit us by chance. You remark that you have experienced inspiration in rather unlikely situations, places, or postures. Yes, this can happen: you are peeling vegetables, bending down to pick something up or tying your shoelaces, when suddenly a current flows through you, an image comes into your mind, and you know you have had a revelation. On the other hand, you can set up all the material conditions that are ideal for inspiration to visit you, but nothing comes to you at all. Divine inspiration does not necessarily come because you are sitting in the lotus position with your eyes closed, surrounded by clouds of incense. Those are not the conditions I am talking about. The first prerequisite necessary for inspiration is to ensure your thoughts, feelings and actions are pure. When the ground has been prepared, the spirit can visit you no matter what situation or posture you find yourself in."

Problems - forgetting them for a while helps to find a solution
"In order to solve certain problems, it is sometimes helpful to forget them for a while and try to think of something else. You might say, ‘But if we try to forget about our problems, we will never find the solution!’ This is exactly where you are mistaken. It is not because you are obsessed with your difficulties that you will manage to solve them or get rid of them; on the contrary, it is often the best way to encourage them and to let yourself become overwhelmed.

So try to put your problems aside for a moment; find the conditions which will allow you to do great inner work, to rise by means of thought high into the world of light, and there you will find solutions. It is often said that night brings counsel. Yes, because during sleep we forget everything, and a work goes on in the subconscious that then allows us to see more clearly. So, from time to time, are you not able to do the same thing consciously?"

Atheism - only considers the superficial side of beings and things
"Atheists think that they show objectivity, lucidity and reasoning: they think that they at least judge according to what they see, hear, touch, measure and so on, unlike believers who they see as being so obsessed by their faith that they are incapable of being lucid. Well, no, however intelligent a person may be, if they do not accept the existence of God, the reality of the soul and the immortality of the spirit, they will always lack an essential element to complete their observations and judgments. The absence of this element limits them, for they pay too much attention to form, to the surface of life.

An atheist is like someone who, looking at a human being, considers only their anatomy. As long as it is only a question of identifying the limbs and organs, and describing their aspects, anatomy can suffice. But only considering anatomy means taking interest in a body without taking into account the life that animates it. Only the belief in the life of the soul and spirit, and of a divine world where they have their origins, can give humans the true dimension of beings and things and the consciousness of the currents that circulate within them."

Evil - its power comes from human beings
"Faced with the misfortunes humanity is suffering, people everywhere are complaining that the world is in a terrible state. They talk, they criticise, they protest and become irritated; and while they are preoccupied with their arguments, complaints, and anger, evil continues its course of action. In their opinion, God is responsible, since he does nothing to stop it, despite their prayers.

I have often told you that the so-called devil has one quality, and only one, but it is an extraordinary quality: he is active, energetic, and tireless, whereas people are weak and tire quickly. They think it is enough to be kind and inoffensive; when they have done a few good deeds, they are satisfied with themselves and then must rest. Who knows when they will get back to work. Good does not stimulate them in the same way that evil stimulates criminals. But whose fault is that? It is not God who prevents them from cultivating generosity and selflessness and working for the good of all their fellow human beings."


Thursday, October 12, 2017

Points of view - know how to call them into question
"The most serious failing of human beings, the one which creates the greatest obstacle to their evolution, is their unshakeable belief in the infallibility of their reasoning and their points of view. They protect their positions; they cultivate them and defend them.

You might say, ‘But the whole world has this failing!’ It is true and the most widespread flaw is people’s insistence on clinging to their ways of feeling and seeing things, as if there were nothing better or more true than their opinions and beliefs. They do not ask themselves where their convictions come from, or why they hold some and not others, but instead allow themselves to be swept along blindly. And this explains why the earth is becoming a stage for every kind of confrontation, with each person seeking the success of their own point of view inspired by their interests, desires, whims, or simply their moods. Why do human beings have to suffer great catastrophes before they finally recognise they have made errors in judgement and acted out of shameful motives?"

God - proof of his existence is within us
"Stop searching for proofs of the existence of God where you will never find them. Look for God within yourself, and you will realize that he is always there, that he never leaves you. If you do not feel him, it is not because he does not exist or is not there, but because you have turned away from him. You have not been attentive to his presence, you have not been sensible, or you have committed certain errors which have deviated you from the path that leads to him, in turn clouding your consciousness. And this now brings about sensations which mislead you about the reality of things.

The Lord is always there, but if you have momentarily allowed your awareness of his presence to be dulled, it will of course seem as if he does not exist. Do your best to get back on to the path of light, and you will once again know that God dwells within you."

Powers of life - give them the means to triumph within
"Both within and without, human beings are constantly involved in the battle between the principle of life and the principle of death. These two opposing powers are constantly confronting each other and it is always the weakness of one that makes the strength of the other. When a kingdom is powerful and prospers, all its enemies keep their distance. But as soon as it begins to weaken through the negligence of its governors or the unwillingness of citizens, the enemies take the opportunity to attack and destroy it.

Well the same happens within us, as enemies are always threatening to weaken us by taking away our peace, our inspiration and our courage; they await the slightest moment of inattention on our part. This is why we must be aware of our inner states so as to be able to stand up immediately against these hostile forces. Since we have come to earth to carry out some work, we must not let forces of death become victorious. We must help the powers of life as much as we can, through knowledge, faith, hope and love, so that they may triumph within us."

Lose control - to break the connection with heaven
"To justify clumsy words or gestures, many people say, ‘I don’t know what happened, I lost my head!’ And this explanation is sufficient for them. Actually, what we lose in those situations is the connection with the divine world, which is responsible for regulating, coordinating and harmonisation of all elements and activities. This is then followed by disorder and disarray, gestures, glances and words that go in all directions.

If the connection with heaven is no longer present, the cells of your body learn that the head, the boss, is not there anymore. And from then on they no longer feel they must respect the order and harmony you have succeeded in establishing within you, and they act like enemies and threaten you. Where once they were submissive and obedient, now nothing holds them back – you are ill in bed, you make error after error or you suffer, and your cells are delighted to say, ‘Aha, aha, very good, this will teach you for having broken the connection with the world of light’. But if you get your head back and re-establish the connection, they set to work together in perfect harmony once again."

Brotherhood - is the value of the future
"Every day, the stock exchange publishes the share prices: some are rising, others are falling, those that are rising today may fall tomorrow, and vice versa. Yes, and on a larger scale, the same phenomena have taken place in the history of the world: at any given time, certain values were held high, and others were not taken into consideration.

In certain eras, for example, physical courage was glorified: heroes were those who knew how to fight each other in tournaments, duels or wars, and who were never afraid of danger. In other times, sacrifice was accorded the highest worth: people admired men and women who could give up everything in order to serve the poor, the sick and the persecuted. In our times, it is the intellect that is most highly valued: the capacity to reason and acquire knowledge in order to act on matter. But this will not last, and already another value is making its appearance: brotherhood. It is this that will motivate human beings to keep expanding their consciousness, so as to acquire the consciousness of universality."

Fusion of spirit and matter - process which summarises the life of the spiritualist
"Matter tends towards the spirit; it wants to rise to meet it, in order to become purer and more subtle. And, conversely, the spirit descends towards matter in order to incarnate and manifest through it. In this way, the beloved departs to meet her beloved, who descends from the heavenly regions, and when they meet somewhere in space, they unite in joy!

In the same way, the work of the spiritualist can be characterized by this same process: the meeting of spirit and matter. Whatever they do, whatever their concerns, experiences or plans, they must lead to what I summarize here for you in these words: ‘the spiritualization of matter and the incarnation of the spirit’. For when the spirit descends into the depths of a human being, it transforms the raw material of their passions into beauty, purity, light, nobility and love."


Friday, October 6, 2017

Thoughts - their creative power
"You have an extraordinary instrument at your disposal: thought. But why don’t you use it? Instead you are content to grumble about all the things you lack. You need beauty, poetry, silence, smiles, kind looks, and kind words? Well, instead of complaining about the fact that people are not giving you these, know that you can create them instantly through thought. You might say, ‘But there’s nothing; I can’t see anything, I can’t feel anything.’ Of course, if you wait to see them materialized, it will probably take centuries. But they exist in the mental plane. And this is the reality you should hold on to.

Imagine a hypnotist gives you a piece of paper, saying, ‘Here is a rose. Smell it.’ You will go into raptures over the wonderful fragrance of this rose. How is this possible? You have captured his thought, and his thought, together with the words he has used, has already created the rose in the subtle plane. He has succeeded in projecting your consciousness to the subtle plane and you smell the rose with your psychic sense of smell. So, why not use this method on yourself to extricate yourself from your negative states?"

Divine intervention - avoid asking for it when we can do something ourselves
"One day someone was telling me about their difficulties with a friend: following a misunderstanding, their relations had deteriorated, and the hostile attitude of their friend hurt them deeply. My visitor explained to me, ‘I really wish things would work themselves out. Every day I pray, I concentrate deeply, and I ask God to help me. But I see no improvement.’

I listened for a moment, and then I said, ‘All that activity is magnificent! But why call on all the heavenly powers to help with a tiny problem that you can solve yourself? A look, a few words and a selfless gesture would no doubt be all it takes for your friend to understand that you are still their friend. You ask God to intervene – and that is a very difficult task – to solve your problems. Try instead to use the very simple means he gave you: a look, speech, and gesture...’"

Inner view - get rid of everything which obscures it
"To the rich young man who came to ask what rites he should observe in order to have eternal life, Jesus replied, ‘Go, sell what you own, and give the money to the poor, then come, follow me.’ And the young man went away feeling sad, for what Jesus asked of him was beyond him. Must we conclude then that, in order to follow Jesus, we must truly rid ourselves of all we possess and give it to the poor? Some have done this, but not all have become better disciples as a result.

It is commendable to make sacrifices and renunciations, but what should we renounce and what should we sacrifice? We must strive to clarify our ideas on this subject. Material things weigh us down and obscure our view, but it is useless to renounce them if we do not at the same time rid ourselves of the thoughts, feelings and desires that encumber us even further and cloud our inner view. "

Nutrition and breathing - chew air like we would food
"When you eat, you should make the habit of chewing food for a while so that the salivary glands have time to do their work, for saliva contains various chemical substances that participate in digestion. Their action can be compared to a kind of cooking that makes the assimilation of food easier. So, if we masticate food until it liquefies, only a small amount of waste is left over, and we benefit from a lot of energies, even by eating a little.

The same laws govern respiration. That is why, when you breathe, absorb air slowly and deeply, since it has to go down to the base of your lungs in order to expand them. And after inhaling, you have to retain it as if you were chewing it. The lungs could be said to masticate air, just as the mouth chews food. The air you inhale is like a ‘mouthful’ of food filled with energy and, in order to digest it well, you must exhale very slowly."

Hardships - how to consider your own and those of others
"Having heard of the laws of karma, some people become indifferent in the face of other people’s suffering. If they see a good and honest person suffer they say to themselves that their suffering must be due to a past incarnation where they made mistakes that they now have to repair, and so they do nothing to help them. But perhaps they are wrong... When such people see others suffer, they always think it is justified, but when they themselves suffer, they feel that they do not deserve such injustice.

So what is the right attitude to have? Exactly the opposite: when you are suffering, tell yourself this suffering is most probably justified; but when others are suffering, tell yourself they are not guilty and try to understand and help them. This way of doing things will help your evolution greatly."

Likes and dislikes - are not reliable criteria
"Every day we meet different people and we cannot stop ourselves from spontaneously feeling either like or dislike for them, for these are natural feelings that even the sages experience. However, the difference between the sage and ordinary men and women is that the sage controls his dislikes and does not give way blindly to his likes, because he knows that neither one nor the other are good criteria.

Liking and disliking are often instinctive, purely personal feelings which originate in experiences lived in other lives. They do not provide impartial information about the value of a person, their qualities or their faults. Many imagine that their intuition dictates these reactions. No, not at all. That is why we must make a habit not only of behaving with understanding and kindness toward people we do not like, but also of recognising the mistakes and weaknesses of those we do like."

Spiritual commitment - once made it must be kept
"In itself, the need for change is not a bad thing, but in certain aspects of life, it can be detrimental to your development. In terms of a friendly or amorous relationship, it is best to hesitate in the beginning in order to weigh the pros and cons, but once you are committed, try not to back out. In the same way, before you commit yourself to a spiritual teaching and begin to follow a master, start by studying the situation carefully: ask yourself if this master is suited to your mentality, to your aspirations, to your ideal, and whether his teaching corresponds to your deeper nature. Once you have engaged yourself, it is best to keep up this commitment. What can you hope to build inwardly that is solid and stable by going first one way and then another, according to the impulses of your whims and your curiosity?

Spiritual experience does not comprise a series of meetings that one arranges first with a Hindu master, then with a Sufi master, then with a Zen master, and so on. Spiritual experience is a furrow that we plough within ourselves and that we must forever deepen. "

Kindness - one of the highest forms of intelligence
"Kindness has a great deal to do with the will. Those who are kind are always motivated to show their thoughts and feelings through their actions. They devote themselves to supporting others: they come to their aid and at times even shake them or drag them away from their difficulties. Sometimes a gruff appearance hides a very kind heart.

But while kindness manifests itself by means of actions, it is something more than this. It requires several incarnations for human beings to truly succeed in developing this virtue which, in fact, represents one of the highest forms of intelligence. It is often said that those who are kind are a little stupid, but what a mistake! Those who devote their minds, their time and their energies to helping others are the most intelligent. To forget oneself in order to serve others is true intelligence. "

Egregor - definition and activity
"When a certain number of people come together around an idea, their thoughts and desires alone create a living reality. This is a law of the spiritual world. And even if this reality is not made up of particles that are sufficiently material to be seen or touched, it exists, and we call this collective entity an egregor. An egregor is a living and active entity, and each country, each religion, and each philosophical movement has one.

The Universal White Brotherhood also has its egregor, and all its members, the brothers and sisters who gather together with the same ideal of peace and light, never stop nourishing and strengthening it. Not only can it then have a positive influence on other egregors in the world but, most of all, it contributes to the evolution of those who have worked to create it. "

Distress and torment - how to avoid these states. The example of birds
"When you feel distressed and tormented it is simply because you have become lost in the psychic regions infested with lower entities – the enemies of humanity. And these entities attack you, and if you try to fight back to make them let go, since these entities are stronger than you, they have the upper hand. So what can you do?

A bird pecks at some grain on the ground, and a cat comes along. The bird does not wait to confront the cat, it flies away. But human beings have still not realized what birds have understood: they stay where they are to fight, and are stripped and destroyed. You might say, ‘How can we fly away?’ There are so many ways to do it! Through will-power, prayer, imagination, the memory of a light-filled moment, the wonder of nature... and all the works of art and literature. You have so many possibilities at your disposal! But do you really want to free yourself from this situation? No, you stay there without doing anything, except filling yourself up with pills and bothering other people by relating your distress and nightmares. From now on, try to put an end these negative states of mind by learning how to take wing."

Soul mate - we attract them by living a luminous life
"You are all seeking this love of the so-called soul mate. Well, if you want to find your soul mate, above all, do not look for them. Concern yourself only with living a pure, intense, and luminous life. Simply live this life and let it take its course; it is this that will attract your soul mate to you. You do not yet know what such a life can do to bring you the beings who have an affinity with you. One day you will say, ‘I did not seek my soul mate, I did not go searching for my beloved, and yet they came...from the far reaches of the universe.’

To find this soul mate, many people put advertisements in the papers and go to all kinds of receptions and night-clubs, but what do they find? Is it so difficult to understand that it is by nourishing something vital and luminous within ourselves every day that we eventually attract this marvellous being we hope for?"

Soul and spirit - the importance of the events taking place at this level
"How many opportunities are we given to transcend the mediocrity of daily life! But do you bother to pay attention to these occasions? The silence of the night, the starry sky, and the immensity of space offer us the best conditions for distancing ourselves a little from human affairs, for reflecting on other worlds where spiritual entities live in harmony and splendour. Nothing about our preoccupations, our worries and fears means anything to them; they are insignificant events. You might say, ‘But what do you mean, insignificant events? Famine, wars, and murders are terrible!’ Yes, they are terrible, but Cosmic Intelligence does not view them in the same way as we do.

For Cosmic Intelligence, only the events of the soul and the spirit are important. If human beings attached more importance to those events which could take place in their soul and their spirit, instead of giving priority to material affairs, they would be more selfless, more understanding and more open to others; and so much misery and tragedy could be avoided on earth."

Subtle life - create a relationship with the subtle life of beings
"You meet a person who you think is wonderful, you feel attracted to them, and you would like to become closer to them. Well, you must be prudent. Instead of trying at all cost to get as close as possible to them on the physical plane, learn to listen to the vibrations of their voice, to capture the light in their face and to rejoice in the harmony of their gestures. In this way, you will gradually succeed in relating to what is most subtle and spiritual in them, and you will taste new and indescribable sensations.

By adopting this attitude, you will finally discover that the men and women you have tended to look down on or ignore because of their modest and unimpressive appearance are, in fact, exceptional beings who will offer you much more than others who seem more interesting and more seductive."

Changes in mentality - can resolve the problems of a society
"Human beings have still not resolved the problems of life as a community. Outwardly they may have formed nations and organised societies whose members support each other, and where everyone serves the whole and benefits from it. Inwardly, however, they remain isolated, aggressive and hostile towards one another. They have not learned how to apply all the progress they have made in their material and practical life – in the realm of organisation and technology – to their inner lives. That is why, despite all this progress, humanity is still suffering from the same misfortunes: wars, poverty, famine and oppression, on a scale unheard of until now.

Real improvements can take place only as a result of a profound change in mentality. Human beings must feel themselves connected to one another psychically and spiritually, in order to succeed in forming the only true society: a universal brotherhood. It is when every individual strives to attain the higher consciousness of unity that societies, peoples and nations will begin to live in peace and freedom."

Comparing oneself - to higher beings in order to progress
"Every judgement human beings hold about people and things depends on a comparison: they prefer one person to another, or one thing to another. In order to prefer something, to judge, people must have made a comparison in one way or another. They spend their lives comparing their houses and their cars to those of their neighbours. They strive to keep up with those who have more things, better things, and more beautiful things, because they believe them to be happier.

In the material realm, human beings are experts at making comparisons, but they are less inclined to make them in the spiritual realm. If they meet a sage, someone who is disinterested, full of love and a master of himself, they do not ask themselves, ‘But how do I measure up next to him?’ Well, with this mentality, it is impossible to advance. In order to progress, they must compare themselves to exceptional beings, to all the great spiritual masters of humanity, and say, ‘How can I reconcile my understanding with theirs? Let me see if they can teach me a better way of thinking and behaving.’"

Life of Nature - make contact with it
"Get into the habit of observing and listening to the life of nature: to stones, plants, animals, but also to the four elements – earth, water, air, fire – and the different forms in which they appear: rocks, sand, rain, snow, wind, clouds, sun, stars and so on. There are so many things to study and interpret!

Just look at the shape, colours and density of clouds: sometimes they appear like cavalcades, battles, feasts... It is the spirits of the air, beings we call sylphs or elves, at work. There is quite a life up above, which expresses itself through a vast number of shapes: faces, birds, flocks of sheep, landscapes... There is even writing we still do not know how to decipher. But it does not matter, the essential thing is to let oneself be impregnated consciously by all these images, for this is how we make contact with the life of nature."

‘Love your enemies’ - a commentary
"Even if those who preach Christianity strive to remember the precept given by Jesus, ‘Love your enemies’, in reality there are very few people capable of applying it. The majority do not even know how to love their friends, so how can they love their enemies? It is so difficult! In order to succeed in applying this selfless and impersonal conception of love, we must connect with a being who manifests this commandment fully: the sun. Watch, and you will see that however human beings behave, the sun continues to send them its light and warmth, to nourish and vivify them.

If you want to understand the highest moral code, you will find it in the sun, and only there. And since the sun represents the spirit within you, when looking at it, force yourself to rise to those regions within you where you feel that nothing can touch you. Because it is only from here that, whatever happens to you, you can continue to send out your light and your love."

Breathing - a means to contact the spiritual world
"Breathing and its workings have been studied closely by yogis in India for many thousands of years and they have understood their importance for our vitality and also for the correct functioning of our mind. And since they researched the subject so thoroughly, they also discovered that all the rhythms in our body are related to cosmic rhythms. So, in order to make contact with certain entities or regions in the spiritual world, we need to find its specific rhythm and use it as we would a key.

This is exactly what happens when we seek to tune into a radio programme on a specific frequency. In order to receive the frequency emitted by a particular station, we need to know its specific wavelength. The same goes for breathing: in order to make contact with a specific region in the universe, we must know which rhythm to use."

Faith in good - enables us to conquer fear
"If a person has no faith in good, they risk losing whatever qualities or faculties they possess. Why? Because without faith in good, the best qualities and faculties have no solid foundations and all kinds of consequences automatically arise: their thought processes and way of seeing things become distorted. They endlessly view people and situations with suspicion, and are afraid. Fear, of course, is a very bad counsellor. How many people in the grip of fear are guilty of cowardice, injustice and spitefulness! Despite all their good qualities, they allow themselves to be invaded by this irrational and uncontrollable instinct. And when the fear has passed, they are often ashamed of what they have done, but by then it is too late.

In order to conquer fear, we must believe steadfastly in the power of good, which is to say, in the pre-eminence of the spirit in you."

Feeling - gives us more of an understanding of reality than seeing
"Everything is alive, everything vibrates and radiates. If you were clairvoyant you would see this radiance throughout creation. But even if you do not see it, you can feel it, which is even more important because, where the inner life, the spiritual life is concerned, feeling is superior to seeing.

It is possible to see and yet to feel nothing. What most human beings do is proof of this: they see, but they do not benefit much from what they see, because they are imprisoned deep inside themselves, with the doors and windows firmly locked; almost nothing reaches their conscience and sensitivity. And if God himself were to come and visit, no doubt they would look at him with a critical eye, because they would not like many things about him. So, seeing in itself changes nothing deep within; it is feeling that gives us the best understanding of reality."

Regenerating ourselves - through connection with the divine source
"Because life is a succession of efforts, suffering, and obstacles to overcome, human beings are obliged to struggle, and in struggling they become weak and exhausted. You can see this happening: day by day, something within them dulls and disintegrates. Why? Because they did not know how to connect with the ever-flowing, inexhaustible source, the only one that can give them water that is ever fresh, life that is ever new.

To be alive is to be able to renew and regenerate oneself, but those who truly know what it means to renew oneself are rare. Most people confuse what is new with what is different. No, change does not necessarily bring about something that is really new. Only that which comes from the divine source is new, truly new, and we must connect with this source in order to regenerate ourselves."

Choice of a profession - elements which determine our choice
"Sometimes people ask my advice about their choice of profession. They are hesitant: should they commit themselves to a certain line of work which would earn them a good deal of money, or should they choose a job which is less lucrative but which would leave them free for altruistic activities? As a teacher, it is not my place to tell others that they should do this or that, but only to explain the consequences of their choices, and it is then up to them to decide.

So my response is as follows. There is nothing wrong with choosing an occupation where you will earn a great deal of money, but it all depends on what you want to achieve. If your ideal is, as they say, ‘to be successful in life’, which means to live a life of ease, to have power and influence, so then, go and earn a lot of money! But if your ideal is to deepen your inner life, you don’t really need money, but instead you need freedom: that is free time of course, but above all freedom of spirit. In this way, you will be able to concentrate of the activities where you will be free from the constraints imposed by materialistic life. "

Faith - knowledge based on experience
"Why is believing in God so obvious to some people and to others an illusion or an absurdity? The explanation is simple: at birth each human being comes to earth with the sum of experiences they have lived in their previous incarnations. If someone spontaneously has faith, it is because what they have studied and verified in their previous lives is recorded in their soul and manifests in this life as an intuition of the divine world. If they now recognise the existence of their heavenly Father, it is because they have been with him for a long time. They have communed with him and have been left with such powerful imprints that they cannot doubt: they know. Faith is therefore knowledge based on experience.

Those who have experimented in the lower regions of their being in previous incarnations draw conclusions from those experiences which they think are the truth. And those who have experimented in the higher realms of the soul and spirit also draw conclusions, and they can no longer have any doubts that a higher intelligence manifests itself in the world."

Music of the spheres - those who vibrate in harmony with the universe can hear it
"Not only do human beings believe they have nothing to lose by cutting themselves off from universal harmony, but they are convinced that by detaching themselves from the laws of nature and struggling against them, they will gain freedom and become powerful. Well, this is the greatest mistake.

Human beings become truly powerful and free only when they learn to vibrate in harmony with the universe, when they are able to hear the symphony of all nature in which everything sings: the forests, the rivers and the stars. It is this cosmic symphony that we call the music of the spheres. And in order to hear the music of the spheres, we must begin by harmonizing our entire being, all our organs, all the cells of our organs, by unremitting and profound work. The moment the very smallest particles of our being vibrate in unison, the symphony of the universe will be revealed to us."

Imagination - a power which must be directed
"Teenagers, who do not know much about the mechanisms of the psychic life, do not suspect the danger of letting their imagination run out of control. And it seems also that parents and teachers, who did the same in their youth, let young people immerse themselves in nebulous states, and even sometimes encourage them by saying, ‘He’s dreaming, he’s a poet, we must let him dream.’ But what do they know about this world of daydreams? In reality, it is the astral world with all its seductions, illusions and snares.

One of the wonderful powers nature has put into human beings is imagination, but it becomes dangerous if it is not mastered. If young people – adults too – let just any feeling, any desire gain a hold over their imagination, they will eventually fall a prey to currents and dark entities which will seriously trouble their mind. Imagination must always be oriented in a positive and constructive direction, towards the world of light symbolised by the sun."

Helping others - is never wasted
"It is one thing to know the laws of destiny and to understand that nothing that happens to human beings – happy or unhappy – is by chance, and it is another thing to find the attitude that best allows us to help them. Some might say, ‘But if they must go through hardships which are imposed on them by certain laws, why try helping them?’ No, it is not right to draw such categorical conclusions.

In truth, the efforts we make to help others are never wasted: in some circumstances, the lords of destiny can be swayed in their favour, having noticed your love and good will. And these efforts are also useful for you: they help you progress. In helping others, your thoughts, feelings, and generous actions also have a positive effect on you yourself. So, help others, and you will be the first to feel better! "

Divine laws - those who transgress them, limits themselves
"You might say, ‘I am free to do what I want and the others will just have to accept me as I am.’ Well, go ahead: you will push people around, put your feet on the table, push aside those who bother you, indulge in all sorts of excesses, and you will be very proud of yourself... But one day you will be cornered, because an act is never without consequences. ‘What do you mean 'cornered'? Why would I be cornered?’ Because under the pretext of asserting your power, consciously or unconsciously, you constantly transgress human laws, but also – and this is more serious – divine laws. This means that you will be preparing very bad conditions in your head, heart and body. And this is how you will be cornered one day.

To convince themselves that they are strong, independent and free, people embark on dangerous paths. They fail to understand that their continuing transgressions represent a corresponding number of debts to be paid; and gradually they give way beneath that great weight."

Sun - gives the principles of a universal religion
"In order to understand what true religion is, human beings must draw closer to the light, warmth and life of the sun. That is to say, they must seek the wisdom which enlightens them and resolves all problems, the disinterested love which beautifies, encourages and consoles them, and the subtle, spiritual life which renders them active, dynamic and daring, so that they may create the kingdom of God and his justice on earth. And no one can destroy this religion: anyone who tries to combat it will only weaken and disfigure themselves.

When this understanding of a universal religion penetrates every mind, the whole organisation of life will become universal: there will be no more separation between human beings, no more borders or wars. As they come to know the sun in its sublime expression of light, warmth and life, human beings will draw closer and closer to the divine, and they will transform the earth into a garden of paradise where all will live as brothers and sisters. Everyone must accept this universal religion which the sun teaches us."

Love - that we give each other enriches us
"It is in thinking about others and working for them that we become wealthy. At first of course, the exact opposite is true. In the beginning, those who are full of love, kindness, and self-sacrifice are considered a little foolish and are used and abused by those around them. But as time passes, they are appreciated more and more, and one day everyone expresses their love for them. They just need to be patient.

When you put a sum of money in the bank, you do not receive the interest right away, do you? You must wait. Exactly the same law applies in the spiritual realm. You work with a great deal of love and disinterestedness, and at first you see no results. But you must not be discouraged: one day wealth will come to you from every direction, and you will not be able to escape it even if you try. The entire universe will shower you with extraordinary riches, because it is you who have engendered them. This is one of the forms of justice."

Noise and silence - their affinities with childhood and old-age
"Both noise and silence are languages. Silence can express the end of movement, the absence of life, but it is also the language of perfection. While noise is the expression of life, but this life is often disordered and needs to be mastered and developed. For example, children are noisy because they are overflowing with energy and vitality. On the contrary, old people are silent. This is partly because their energy has diminished and because noise tires them, but it is also often due to the fact that they have evolved, that they have gone deeper into themselves, and that it is their spirit which encourages them to be silent. In order to review their life, to reflect on it and to draw lessons from it, they need this silence in which a work of detachment, simplification and synthesis can be carried out.

The pursuit of silence is an inner process which leads human beings towards the light and a true understanding of things."

Faith and doubt - chemical elements which favour fulfilment or oppose it
"A spiritual master is a being who possesses great psychic powers, but these powers do not allow him to act at all times, in every location, under any circumstances, and with just anyone.

A verse of the Gospels says that, when passing through Nazareth, Jesus did not perform many miracles because of the scepticism of its inhabitants. So, even though he possessed great powers, he did not reveal them before people who were not open or trusting. And to the man who requested healing for himself or for his child, he replied, ‘According to your faith, may it be to you’, or, ‘Your faith has made you well’. Of course, those who are ignorant will say that Jesus was self-centred and vain, and this is why he agreed to help only those who had blind faith in him. No, the true explanation is that faith and doubt can be compared to chemical compounds: faith is made of subtle elements which favour fulfilment, and doubt is made of elements that oppose it."


Tuesday, September 5, 2017

Happiness - depends on the way in which we organise our inner world
"Life is merely a series of exchanges between our inner and outer worlds, but we must always give priority to the inner world, because it is with this that we are continually connected. Yes, you are not always looking at, listening to, touching or tasting something outside yourself, but you are always with yourself, with your thoughts, your feelings and your states of consciousness. Therefore, as long as you favour the outer world over the inner world, you run the risk of being deeply disappointed. For a moment, perhaps, you have the illusion of holding onto something, but a while later you hold nothing, because everything has eluded you.

Human beings seek something to fulfil them, something they are not always able to define, even though they call it happiness. They must know that it is first within them – by organising their inner world – that they will come to find this happiness."


Monday, September 4, 2017

Good - always triumphs in the end
"At one time or another in your life you will be the victim of injustice, of false accusations, and mistaken judgments by people who want to harm and destroy you. It is important to know this and to prepare yourself for such situations so that, when the time comes, you will not allow anxiety, grief or the desire for revenge to get the upper hand. The only correct response in these situations is to continue to work on yourself. Tell yourself that everything inspired by the divine world will endure and will shine one day in all its glory, whereas self-interest, intrigue and scheming, although they may succeed for a certain time, will sooner or later fail.

Therefore, leave those who are unjust and spiteful to get stuck in their swamps, if that is what they want; they will become weak and impoverished because they do not know how terrible the laws are for those who serve jealousy, deceit and hatred. The power of heaven is infinite: it works imperceptibly but tirelessly, and everything eventually ends well for those who hold in their lives a sublime ideal of beauty and love: the coming of the kingdom of God and brotherhood in the world. "

Convictions - do not expose them in order to better preserve them
"No matter how enthusiastic you are about the religion or spiritual teaching you have discovered, do not begin by preaching it to others. First of all, people have heard enough sermons on the subject, and it is your actions alone that will convince them. Secondly, to do so is not good for you either.

A spiritual conviction must be lived in the depths of your being so that it becomes a part of you. If you begin preaching to everyone, something within you will begin to disintegrate, and the slightest jolt will throw you off balance. Even if you remain faithful to the principles, they will rapidly lose their vibrancy; and you will become hardened and parched, because the spring within you will have run dry. You must find very subtle ways to express your convictions. Otherwise you will lose them or, even worse, they will soon turn to fanaticism."

Love - it makes us light and brings us closer to heaven
"Perhaps you have never travelled in a hot-air balloon, but you know that what enables it to rise in the sky is the heat produced by the combustion of a gas, which inflates the canvas and makes the balloon lighter than air. The same is true in the spiritual life: to rise higher we must become light and dilated and, in order to become dilated, we must heat something within us. It is the warmth of love that inflates the heart and renders it so light that it begins to rise like a balloon.

You see, in order to move closer to heaven, it is more useful to know how to read the book of nature than the books of the theologians. The book of nature teaches you that when you become cold, you contract and become heavy, heavier than air, and you fall. And when you find yourself on the ground, you of course complain that heaven has abandoned you. But warm your heart, fill it with love, and you will rise once again and travel in space. "

Nature - is alive and intelligent
"The universe is a kind of sanctuary for us which we must approach with a sense of the sacred. For not only is nature alive, it is also intelligent. And if we open ourselves to it, it responds by allowing us to participate in its life. You may think that all natural phenomena happen mechanically and that there is therefore no intelligence involved. Well, you are mistaken. Human beings have observed that the universe obeys laws, and this has made it possible for them to create what they call ‘the natural sciences’, but this is no reason to conclude that natural phenomena are purely ‘mechanical’. In thinking this way, you denigrate both nature and yourself; you make it impossible for life to pour into your heart, into your soul, into your mind, and even into your physical body.

You will become truly alive only when you decide to enter into relationship with this great and endless life present everywhere in the universe."

Human body, the - a model for the body of the world
"For centuries thinkers have said that humanity is like a body, and that the countries of the world are its organs. But in truth, very few people have been working to inspire the organs of humanity with the same wisdom and disinterestedness as the organs of the physical body; everyone thinks only of themself, to the detriment of their neighbour. It is time therefore to take the example of the human organism that nature has so skilfully designed and to study how it functions, when it is in good or ill health, and to understand that the same rules apply to the whole of humanity.

When the brain is lucid and the heart dilated, even the feet feel well. Yes, when an organ is in good health, all the other parts of the body feel it and rejoice; and when an organ is deficient, the others, poor things, feel undermined as well. So why, when a country is in difficulty, do its neighbours rejoice? This proves that they are unhealthy organs, and do not realize that sooner or later they too will suffer the consequences."

Higher self - how to rejoin it
"Anyone who strives in their inner life to give priority to the activity of the spirit, their higher self, is already participating in the cosmic work of Christ, of God himself. Yes, this activity which takes place in another sphere, most often without our knowledge, is something mysterious, but is a reality.

When you are absorbed in your daily tasks, you cannot begin to imagine what your higher self is doing. One day, perhaps, when your mind is sufficiently developed, you will become conscious of the work it carries out in all regions of the universe. For the time being, it is essential to become aware of its presence within you. How? First of all, during your meditations, start by making peace with the inhabitants within you and put them in the service of love and light. Gradually this work will take place naturally, without your having to think about it, and because of it you will reunite with your higher self which is a quintessence of God himself."

Revenge - don’t give in to it
"Someone who feels betrayed by a person in whom they had put their faith tends to react negatively. Because they suffer the unfaithful, dishonest behaviour of others, they consider them as an enemy and seek a means for revenge. But they don’t know that reacting in this way will do even more harm.

Imagine you did not know you should have confidence in someone who deserved it: this is an error of judgement and yes, you will suffer some consequences. But if you adopt a hostile attitude, the damage you suffer will be much more serious. For not only do negative sentiments and the desire for revenge disturb your inner harmony, but you will also lose this person forever. Yes, they have behaved badly, but if you yourself know how to act, if you give them the chance to realize and rectify their mistake, with time they will perhaps become a true friend again."

Breathing, human - and breathing of the cosmos
"Meditation is breathing, so too is prayer, ecstasy and all communication with heaven. Those who wish to deepen the meaning of the process of breathing can gradually feel their own breathing merge into the breathing of God. For God too breathes: he breathes out and a world appears, he breathes in and a world disappears... We can get a small glimpse of this process on certain days in summer when we see light white clouds suddenly appear in the sky, and a moment later they just as suddenly disappear...

God’s in-breaths and out-breaths obviously take place over billions and billions of years. The sacred books of India tell us that one day God will breathe in and our universe will return within him. And then, again, he will breathe out and a new creation will appear... Through human beings, God breathes more quickly, but in the cosmos, his breathing is a lot slower. And therefore, the slower our breathing, the closer we come to divine breathing."

Diploma, the - we receive after passing the tests of life
"When students pass their exams, they receive a diploma that opens certain doors for them: they can continue their studies, find a job, and so on. In the same way, when we pass the tests of life successfully, we receive a diploma which gives us more opportunities and confidence to keep advancing.

You might ask, ‘But what is this diploma?’ It is not a piece of paper like the university diplomas that can be lost or destroyed. This diploma is like a mark which the invisible world applies to our face, to our whole body, and it is imprinted so deeply within us that nothing and no-one can take it away. And then, even the spirits of the four elements, who know how to read this diploma, recognise us. Wherever we go, they see this diploma, and it is a signal to them that they must welcome us, protect us, and help us. "

Parents, our divine - they are within us, just like our human parents
"There are children who have never known their parents, who do not even know who they are, but they never doubt that they had a father and a mother. In fact, many spend their lives hoping to find them and looking for the slightest clue to their existence. The truth is that their parents, whose absence makes them suffer so, are in fact within them: in all that they have bequeathed to them as physical and psychic traits. Therefore, whether they are physically present or not, what is essential is always present within: children always have their parents with them, within them.

Biologists and psychologists study children to see how the laws of heredity apply to them. This is important, but it is not enough. Who will now study our divine heritage, all those divine seeds received from our heavenly Father and Mother, which we must develop a little more in order to resemble them? "

Humility - analogy with the universal solvent of alchemists
"So many murky layers lie between our ordinary consciousness and our divine consciousness! This is why our most important work is to apply the methods that will enable us to break up the deposits within us, the slag which blocks the manifestation of wisdom, strength and divine love within us.

The alchemists of the past sought the universal solvent to prepare the philosopher’s stone. But a true alchemist seeks to dissolve the dark matter within them, the negative instigator and dangerous conductor which blocks our union with God. And do you want to know what the best solvent is? Humility. But this solvent acts effectively only if we know why and how we must be humble; it does not mean we must indiscriminately belittle and disparage ourselves. When it is misunderstood, humility can cause as much harm as pride. True humility enables us to dissolve our lower nature in order to identify with the divine."

Love - the transformations it produces within us
"At one time or another you have met a man or a woman who has inspired in you a deep feeling of affection. Did you notice the transformations that this feeling alone produced within you? Suddenly you began to think and behave differently, not only towards this person, but with everyone around you. Even your relationship with nature and objects changed. So many things that you did not see or feel before begin to reveal themselves to you, encouraging you to pursue other interests! Because love is a force and this force acts on you, it influences your mind, your will, and even your body and it opens up great possibilities for you.

Love is like the fuel in your car: if your tank is full, you can go a long way, but if it is empty, how far can you go? And if love is missing, where can you go?"

Music - importance of the feelings it generates
"Some people claim they cannot listen to music, that they do not understand it. But what does this mean? It is not comprehension that counts in music, but the sensations you experience as a result of its vibrations, of the musical harmony. Do we understand birdsong, the murmuring of springs or streams, or the rustling of the wind in the branches? No, but we are captivated and filled with wonder, and it is this which is essential.

For the same reasons, it is always better to sing songs in their original language, even if we do not understand their meaning at first. There is a relationship between the words and music, which is destroyed in translation. Music is not created to be understood, but to be felt. Even when it is accompanied by words, the meaning of these words is of less importance than their sound. So study carefully the states which music evokes in you, and use them for your spiritual work."

Skin - what we receive through it is determined by our thoughts and feelings
"These days people are increasingly convinced that exposing themselves to nature and the four elements (earth, water, air and sunshine) benefits their health. They do so in various states of undress, but this is not really the point. ‘Then what is the point?’ you might ask. The point is that what they receive will depend above all on their thoughts and feelings.

The skin itself is neutral, and is capable of allowing everything to pass through it, both good and bad. What directs and determines the work of the skin is our consciousness. According to what is in your mind and heart, the skin can favour or prevent certain elements passing through. If your thoughts and feelings are pure, luminous and filled with respect and love for nature and its many forces, it is as if your skin received an order from above to drive out poisons and to attract only life-giving particles and energies. If carried out under the right conditions, this communion with the four elements can purify you both physically and spiritually."

Spiritual brotherhood - its benefits
"Why belong to a spiritual brotherhood? There are many reasons; one of them being that a spiritual community gives its members the best conditions in which to transform themselves and to advance. Even if they wish to improve themselves, those who remain alone do not always have the will to continue their efforts: for a short while they do their exercises, but then they give up and no one knows when they will start again... and give up once more. It is easier in a community because they are stimulated and supported.

Yes, by virtue of example, those around us have an enormous influence on us. So many people, whether through debauchery, alcohol, drugs or crime, have done things which they would never have done on their own! If we admit that a group has the power to lead people into wrong-doing, why not accept that it can be equally powerful in leading them towards good?"

Clouds, Our inner - hide the divinity
"When the sun is hidden by clouds, it does not disappear; it continues to spread its light and warmth. When the clouds eventually disperse, or if we are able to rise high enough in the atmosphere, we see that the sun is always there. Well, an identical phenomenon often takes place within us.

Like the sun, God is always there, present and unchanging, sending us his light (his wisdom) and his warmth (his love) to all beings. But if we allow clouds to form within us by means of thoughts, feelings and desires that are chaotic, selfish and negative, we will allow clouds to form within and be deprived of this light and warmth. Instead of complaining that God does not exist, or that he has abandoned us, human beings must understand that if they find themselves in the dark and the cold, they alone are responsible for their situation and must do all they can to rise above the clouds."

Promises, made to us - know ahead of time that they will not always be kept
"So many people are devastated because they feel they have been betrayed. They exclaim repeatedly, ‘But how is it possible? He promised me… She gave me her word…’ It is true, they were promised a great deal, that they would not be abandoned, that they would always be loved, helped and supported and they believed what they were told. But they should not have been so gullible! Most men and women, like children, make promises that they genuinely believe they can keep. When they give their word they are sincere and are convinced they will do what they say. But they do not know themselves, they do not know how weak, unstable and fickle they are and, when the time comes, they lose their nerve or forget. This is normal, and you must know in advance that this is always possible. If you never want to be disappointed, try to be sensible. Never ask human beings to do something that may be beyond their capacity because, even with the best intentions in the world, they may not be able to live up to your expectations."

Divine glory - a light into which we can enter
"‘Praise be to God’... To understand what these words mean, it would be better for those who read or hear them to be less obsessed by human glories. So many naive and ignorant people think God is like one of many tyrannical and vain monarchs who expect people to worship their wealth, their qualities and their achievements and who are only satisfied if they appear greater than all those around them. God has no need for us to sing his praises, for nothing we might say of him could add anything to him. The entire universe and all the angelic hierarchies already sing his praise. Rather it is we who need to glorify him, so that we may enter into His light.

And to glorify God, it is not enough to repeat endlessly that he is great, powerful and wise either. It is through our efforts to purify our thoughts, our feelings, our desires and our actions that we glorify God. In doing so we will enter into the light of divine glory and, wherever a ray of this light falls, we too will be present."

Freedom - begins with mastering oneself
"Human beings do not understand where their rejection of certain laws will lead because they have never studied the far-reaching consequences of a thought, a word or an action. If they had more discernment, they would sense that at the exact moment they reject these laws, they become weaker, because they open the door to dark powers which seize them and bind them hand and foot. It is a law: the less we control our thoughts, our desires, and our whims, the more enslaved we become.

You may say that you want to be free to satisfy your desires. Fine, but you must know that this is the direct path to slavery. You will be a slave to yourself, or rather to very primitive inner forces which will strike you down and take complete control over you. True freedom begins with mastery of oneself. When wise men advise human beings to learn to master their impulses, it is not for the pleasure of bullying them, but because they know that the absence of mastery opens the way to illness, imbalance, and death."

Chaos to harmony, from - the law of creation
"From disorder to order, from chaos to harmony, such is the law of creation, and everywhere in the universe we can observe this law at work. Yes, we see it everywhere, except in what our contemporaries insist on calling art, which is more often, in fact, only a return to the formless. We look at a painting or a piece of sculpture without being able to distinguish what it represents. Inarticulate sounds pass for a song, cacophony and noise pass for music, words thrown together pass for poetry, and disorganised movements pass for dance...

The intelligence of living nature always works in the direction of differentiation and organisation: a single cell divides and multiplies, and a few months later a human being or an animal appears, extraordinary in form. Must we now take the opposite path and become unicellular, or chaotic? How is it that artists, who are by definition creators, have not understood the law their creations must obey?"

Kingdom of God - let us all stand together to claim it
"How have revolutions taken place in the past? Did all participants have to be politicians, lawyers, philosophers, scientists or generals? No, but all were present and united – scientists, the ignorant, the competent and incompetent, the weak and the strong – and together they emerged victorious! Every day we see this type of event reported in books, in newspapers, on the radio or on television, but we do not understand. You might say, ‘But what is there to understand?’ Many things, and in particular, that to obtain results, it is the numbers of people uniting together that counts. Whether the individuals in the crowd be drunkards or invalids is of secondary importance. The important thing is that, drunkards and invalids though they may be, they join with all the others in their claim for change.

And in order to claim the kingdom of God, what is important? Of course, everyone must make an effort to mature within, and to move forward on the path of good. But, above all, they must all stand together in order for their claim to be heard at last."

Ideas and opinions - revise them and sort through them
"Review all that you have accepted up to now in the form of knowledge, ideas and opinions; study them and ask yourselves whether they are consistent with the initiatic philosophy you follow. If they do, emphasize them, reinforce them and reflect more deeply on them. But for notions that go against this philosophy, be aware that they will lead you astray and create problems for you. So reject them. This might seem difficult or impossible at first, but you will then feel so much freer and lighter, and you will see so much more clearly!

If, for the time being, you are still floundering in the dark, if you still feel hesitant, indecisive or constrained, it is because you are burdened with too many things which weigh you down and obscure your sight. It is time to sort through things. Go within and try to identify what you need throw away and what you must keep: you will feel lighter and become more clear-sighted."

Pleasure - does not constitute happiness
"Not only does pleasure not bring happiness, it is often the pursuit of pleasure that stops you from finding happiness. Pleasure is an enjoyable and fleeting sensation that leads human beings to believe that by making it last as long as possible, they will be happy. Well, no. Why? Because the experiences that quickly and easily give them an enjoyable sensation do not, for the most part, exist in the higher planes. They affect only the physical body, maybe the heart and barely the intellect. But we cannot be happy if we seek to satisfy solely the physical body, the heart or even the intellect, because such satisfaction is limited and short-lived.

Unlike pleasure, true happiness is not a sensation of the moment and it affects the entire being: soul and spirit. So, when you find someone or something appealing or pleasant, do not rush. Use these criteria and ask yourself whether it is really here that you will find happiness."

Loneliness - how to overcome it
"The feeling of loneliness is one of the most terrible forms of suffering that human beings can experience. Each of us needs to find someone with whom we can share our thoughts, feelings, and aspirations, someone with whom we can exchange harmoniously every day. This ideal being is obviously very difficult to find, and many books have explained the pain, anguish and feeling of abandonment experienced by men and women when they are unable to find what some have called their soul mate!

But, in reality, the human soul can only be filled permanently and completely by God. If you wish to feel that you are not alone every day, that you are surrounded by beings who love and understand you, and that you yourself are filled with a great presence of joy and light, you must unite with God and his manifestations, which are wisdom, love and truth. For God himself is love, wisdom and truth. And for the person who places love in their heart, wisdom in their head, and truth in their will, solitude no longer exists. "

Spiritual guide - danger of trying to be one if you have not received the qualification
"Some people take on the role of spiritual guide without realising that they lack the necessary faculties and qualities of wisdom, love, disinterestedness, discernment and patience. They don’t know how dangerous it is to shoulder this overwhelming task if they have not received heaven’s approval.

To take on the responsibility of being a spiritual guide, you must first receive the qualification. Yes, we too receive qualifications in the spiritual world. The luminous spirits who sent us to earth observe and assess us, and if they see someone who has successfully passed the exams which life has imposed on them, they give them a diploma, which in turn gives them the right to teach. And where is this diploma? It is certainly not a piece of paper that can be destroyed: it is like a seal printed on a person’s face and body, an integral part of the person themself, and it shows that they have been successful in working continuously on themself. Other human beings perhaps do not see it, but all the spirits of nature, all the spirits of light see it from afar, and they hasten to help them with their task."

Difficulties - don’t run away from them, train yourself to endure them
"If you run away from certain work and effort that life imposes on you, you will never manage to make progress within. Some people can no longer stand their family or their work, and they leave. Others run away from their responsibilities. The fact is that running away is not recommended. Destiny puts you in certain situations for a reason.

You must strengthen yourself and face the difficulties and obstacles of your daily life. Consider sportsmen who train, climbers who test themselves against the mountain, and sailors who confront the ocean, braving bad weather and great dangers. Try to do as they do, not physically of course, because not everyone is prepared for such feats; but psychologically, train yourself to stand firm, to hold on. Of course, if a time comes when the situation becomes untenable, you must move on. But as soon as you can, come back and face things... until you become really steadfast and strong to complete your task."

Ignorance - is never an excuse
"How many people complain, ‘I seek the light. I pray every day, but God does not hear me. I have so many problems, I am unhappy and sick, and my life no longer has any meaning.’ Whose fault is that? If people are struggling with so many problems, it means they have attracted them. They might say, ‘Attracted? But how? This is not what I wanted, I did not know.’ But yes, when you asked, you forgot certain laws. ‘Ah but I did not know.’ Maybe, but whether they knew or not, they have transgressed laws and are now suffering the consequences. Ignorance is never an excuse. If you do not respect the rules of the road, the police arrive and fine you, and it is useless to say, ‘But, Officer, I did not know.’ He calmly continues to write the ticket and does not want to hear whether you knew or not because, as far as he is concerned, you should have known.

From now on, therefore, try to bring your behaviour into greater harmony with your spiritual aspirations. You will no longer have the excuse of not knowing, and if you are negligent, you will be doubly guilty and will suffer."

Solar light - receive it and project it
"All creatures living on earth – stones, plants, animals and human beings – receive life from the sun and from its warmth and light. But with their level of consciousness being higher than that of stones, plants and animals, human beings can do more than simply receiving this life passively. If they learn how to look at the sun and how to work with it, they will understand the nature of this energy it radiates and how they can capture and transform this energy by developing their subtle centres.

Initiates have learned to work with the purest quintessence of solar energy. For them it represents a food that they absorb and assimilate in order to project it around them. This is why they can then enlighten, warm and vivify other creatures. The true power of an initiate comes from their ability to transform light."

Spiritual Exercises - enable us to resonate with spirits of light
"Imagine you have two bottles filled with perfume: as receptacles they are separate, but the fragrances that escape from them rise up do not remain separate for very long and they mix.

What is the purpose of this imagery? Well, human beings can be compared to bottles of perfume, in that their bodies are separate but with their thoughts and feelings they are able to meet with other human beings and even with entities from the invisible world. Only, we do not meet with anyone we want; we can only reach the souls and spirits in the visible and invisible worlds that correspond to what we ourselves are, because it is just a phenomenon of resonance that is at work here. The purpose, therefore, of prayer, meditation and all spiritual exercises is that they help us elevate our inner self and as we do so, by the power of affinity, we meet with ever purer and ever more luminous spirits."

‘And this is life eternal, that they may know You, the only true God.’ - a commentary
"Jesus said in the Gospels, ‘And this is life eternal, that they may know You, the only true God.’ And how is it that we can ‘know’ God? By merging with him. But this fusion can take place only between objects or beings of the same nature, the same essence.

For example, take a small amount of mercury, scatter it into droplets, then bring these droplets together, and once again they form only one drop. Now suppose that before gathering the droplets together, you allow a little dust to fall on some of them: however you try to reunite them, you will not succeed. Well, this is what happens to those who want to fuse with God but have not first purified themselves. While they remain impure, sombre and mean-spirited, they cannot unite with the Creator, who is beauty, light and love. All their impurities form a barrier which prevents this union. In order to rid themselves of these impurities, they must learn to master themselves, to control their thoughts and desires, and only then can they attune themselves to divine vibrations and waves and taste eternal life."

Women - how they can contribute to the regeneration of humankind
"Women have much to reproach men for, because men have for centuries used and abused their physical superiority and their authority to force women to be in their service. Men have shown themselves to be careless, egocentric, unjust, violent and cruel. And now the situation has changed and women are gaining their independence. They are waking up and rising up. But if they get up to take revenge, the results will be no better, not even for them. Women must now show themselves generous and forgive men. Since they are the mothers, since their nature leads them to be good, tolerant, compassionate and ready to give love and to sacrifice themselves, they must not look to make men pay for everything men subjected them to.

Women must rise above their personal interests in order to awaken to higher virtues in the light. It is therefore up to all women on earth to come together, to join forces to work together and build: work on the children they bring into the world and on the men, the fathers of their children. This is how they will play their part in the regeneration of humankind. "

Knowledge, True - is an acquisition of the inner life
"A very modest, simple person with a basic education can, through their inner searching, come to know more about life than the greatest scholars. It is for this reason that scientists should demonstrate a little more humility and reserve. God has not given them exclusive rights to knowledge. They can control matter, but they cannot control life, because life is not discovered by looking through a few instruments, lenses or microscopes, it is discovered deep within oneself.

Even someone who conducts investigations on stars and other planets can be as ignorant inwardly as if they had never left their cave. It is a matter of consciousness. What is the use, then, of setting out to discover the universe if we remain inwardly as limited as someone who has never stepped outside their remote village? The astronaut in his shuttle travels throughout space, but the shepherd who looks after his flock in the mountains and contemplates the starry sky in the silence of night perhaps knows more of immensity than the astronaut. "

Prayer - is not about addressing grievances to God
"For many believers, prayer is a matter of expressing their grievances to God. However, they should instead realize that the Creator has given them all the means, both physical and spiritual, to look after their needs and even those of others, and prayer should simply serve to help them rise within themselves to discover those means. One might say that God already did his part for us long ago. It is not for him to give humans what they lack, but for humans to search for it. What is the point of people praying to ask him for health or the affection of others if they continue to live in a way that makes them ill or disagreeable? And what good is it to pray for peace if, wherever they go, they continue to carry a veritable battlefield within them?

Prayer is, undoubtedly, an expression of faith, but faith must be understood as the force that incites human beings to surpass themselves, to transcend themselves. There are two kinds of faith: one is inspired by effort and activity, and the other is inspired by laziness, and this faith, which should rather be called naivety, is useless, and even harmful."

Love - the intellect should have just as much to say as the heart
"People often use the pretext of love to justify their behaviour to those they love. Once they say they ‘love’ someone, that is it; it never occurs to them to examine the nature of this love and their way of showing it. From the moment the feeling of love has befallen them, they have to succumb to it. Even reason is forsaken and the intellect is silenced. The intellect has no say in the matter once the heart has launched itself into love. If intellect tries to have its say, the heart replies, ‘Be quiet. I’m talking, love is talking, and what do you have to add to that?’

The more a person has progressed on the path of evolution, the less they succumb to the demands of their feelings; they analyse whether they are disinterested, pure and useful, not only for others but also for themselves. But such people are rare. This is why there are so many novels, plays and films telling the comical and all-too-often disastrous stories of people who are in love. If human beings were able to make feeling and thought work together, love would manifest itself in far more beautiful forms and colours. "

Identifying - being able to merge with all that exists
"Probably at least once in your life, you have had the sudden sensation of identifying with a man or a woman you are looking at or listening to, or with something you are contemplating in nature: a river, a waterfall, a spring, a star, the blue sky, the sun...

If we have this ability to identify with other beings, then in reality we are far more than we appear to be. As individuals we are X, Y, or Z, with a particular physical appearance, an identity, a name and so on. But in our soul and spirit we are the whole universe, we are everyone and everything. Literature holds many examples of this kind of experience, but many people consider it madness, or at best, poetic imagination. According to those who are supposedly ‘normal’, someone who claims to exist in the trees, the lakes, the mountains, the stars and the sun, or to have experienced himself as the deity, is obviously a poet or a madman. And yet, this poet or this madman describes the reality of every human being."

Centres, subtle - enable us to orientate ourselves in the spiritual world
"Spiritual life should not be embarked upon rashly, because you can get lost in it just as much as you can get lost at sea without a compass. Although in spiritual life too you can have a compass. There are also other ways of finding your way even if you cannot see where you are going. What do the occupants of a submarine do to navigate in the depths of the ocean? Nothing, but the submarine is equipped with devices giving out readings that the captain can interpret and so avoid incidents.

Well, human beings are like submarines insofar as, inwardly, they carry devices that allow them to find their way in the invisible world. These devices are their body and their subtle centres: energy centres like the aura, the solar plexus, the hara and the chakras. For the moment, however, these devices are covered in rust because they have not been used for incarnations, or they are broken because of the disordered life these human beings have led. So it is now up to them to put them back in working order through exercises and, no matter what happens, they will know clearly which direction they should head in."

Initiatic school - is beneficial only to the development of our divine nature
"The work you do once you are engaged in the spiritual life is very different from everything you are used to. It is not a matter of doing manual work somewhere or being busy in an office, but of developing the divine nature given to us by our heavenly Father and which is stifled and buried in everyday life by all sorts of activities and preoccupations which are not really divine.

It is a waste of time to go to an initiatic school with the idea of carrying out the same activities there as you do in the world: you will feel alone and even rejected, not so much by the people you will meet there, but by the very atmosphere of the school – you will have the feeling you’re in a foreign land. But if you wish to find the right conditions to restore order and harmony within yourselves, to allow your divine nature to blossom, and to undertake great work for the good of the whole world, you must turn to an initiatic school where you will always accepted and welcomed!"

Falling in love - learning to expand your consciousness
"Most men and women are so careless when they enter a relationship or marriage! They imagine that everything will be easy, light and pleasant, since their partner is there, of course, merely to satisfy their desires and for them to live happy moments. But gradually they begin to feel that it’s not that easy and then come the arguments and confrontations, until they understand that, in order to restore the situation, they must each strive to forget themselves a little and think of the other. What they mistook for a romantic adventure or a fairy tale, is in fact a school where they begin what for every human being is the most important apprenticeship: the expansion of consciousness.

Perhaps you are wondering what this expansion of consciousness entails. It means leaving one’s small, egocentrical self in order to enter the vast community of humanity; and for many, this apprenticeship inevitably begins with the experience called ‘falling in love’. "

Solutions, real - are only found on high, in the domain of the spirit
"Why is the brain situated at the top of the body? If you understood the reason, you would not remain down below in your heart and your emotions, suffering in self-pity, when you experience disappointment and unhappiness. You would immediately force yourself to rise higher, to the level of true thought, of reason and intelligence.

When you are suffering and distressed, say to yourself, ‘You are right, I understand, and I am going to get the handkerchiefs ready to wipe away your tears. But wait a bit, I need to do a little thinking first.’ And in reflecting, you find the solution much more rapidly than if you had continued to stumble around in that part of you that is so sensitive: the astral body. Otherwise, what happens? You complain, you cry for hours, stopping only because you are worn out. And the next day you begin again. But your tears and lamentations solve nothing. So, instead of remaining below in your feelings, why not force yourself to move out right away and take up residence on high, in the spiritual realm which is pure reason and where the spirit reigns?"

Lineage, our divine - an exercise to recognise it
"Your salvation lies in your ability to recognise your divine lineage, to become conscious that God is within you, that he lives in you and that you can therefore identify with him. But of course this exercise requires that you take certain precautions. First of all, your consciousness that the divinity dwells within you must be accompanied by the same consciousness that the divinity lives in all human beings as well. In this way, you will remain humble, simple, amiable, and open to others.

What is more, in doing this exercise of identification, do not begin to think that you are equal to God, as did Lucifer and the rebel angels, according to the tradition. Instead, make efforts to sense that it is not you who exist, but that God alone exists, and that he exists within you only in so far as your ceaseless efforts enable him to manifest through your thoughts, your feelings, and your acts. "

Angel of air - a prayer
"When you go walking in nature, whether it is in the countryside, in the forest, in the mountains or at the sea-side, be aware of the space surrounding you and from time to time, stop and breathe in deeply in order to contact the Angel of air.

The Angel of air is a living and intelligent entity, and you can therefore ask, ‘O beloved Angel of air, you who are a servant of God who is great and almighty, blow through me and clear out the impurities from my lungs, heart and brain, and bring me harmony so that I can become a servant like you.’ And because the Angel of air is present everywhere and directs all the currents circulating throughout the universe and slips into every crack, he hears you. He then gives the spirits accompanying him the order to bring you some breaths of this very subtle fluid we call ether, and you feel as if your entire being is expanding and rising into space."


Tuesday, July 25, 2017

Correct attitude, the - to find God
"It is essential to have the correct attitude toward all that exists and, above all, toward the First Cause, the Creator. When you have a positive attitude toward the Creator, wherever you go, all of creation, all creatures from the angels to the birds, the trees and the mountains, will look at you and smile. New forces and new joys will come to visit you, and you will go forward with confidence that life is beautiful and has meaning.

Heavenly beings will never bow before your power, your wealth, your knowledge or your prestige; they will only open themselves up to you if they feel you have the right attitude, for only your attitude reveals whether you have understood what is essential. Never forget this truth: everything that happens in your life from then on will provide opportunities for you to verify it."

Language of initiates - is identical to that of nature
"An initiate does not speak only with words; his language can be compared to that of nature. What does nature do? It sends us messages all the time. It does not use words, and yet it speaks to us: the sun, stars, forests, lakes, oceans, and mountains speak to us by constantly communicating something of their life and their secrets. These communications are recorded within us, but we are not conscious of them. Yet, it is thanks to them that little by little our sensitivity is enriched and our understanding enhanced. We do not know how this understanding comes about, but it does.

An initiate’s language is identical to that of nature. Thanks to the power of his spirit, he emits particles, he projects rays, and, consciously or unconsciously, those who receive them are enlightened and enriched."

Conflicts with others - resolve them by provoking their positive side
"How do most countries believe they can solve problems with their neighbours and ensure their safety? By perfecting weapons which are more and more deadly... Until one day they will end up destroying the whole earth. Because, with this approach, as time passes, things become more complicated. Until human beings choose to solve their problems with spiritual force, with the power of divine love, nothing will ever be resolved.

Therefore, whatever your situation and station in life may be, from this day forward you at least must try to resolve any problems with your parents, your friends or your enemies by expressing love and kindness. By doing so, you will activate a law which will require them sooner or later to respond in the same way. Yes, this is the power of provocation. Until you understand how to resolve problems, you will provoke the negative side in others, which in turn will wait until you drop your guard and then come back to attack you. Study history and you will see that this has always been the case. From now on, learn to provoke the good in all those you meet."

Achievements, of spirit - only they can truly transform life
"In the physical realm, human beings have made gigantic achievements: we cannot help but see how scientific and technical progress has transformed life. But this is not enough, and humanity is now called upon to realize achievements that are still more important, more vital for them, by means of the faculties of the spirit. Through meditation and prayer, they must learn to make a relationship with the world of the spirit, so that light, love, and power of the spirit descend upon the earth, within them, and upon those beings around them.

Scientific and technical progress has limits, and even presents dangers. If all these discoveries are not made to serve a higher vision of things, humanity will be overwhelmed, overtaken and crushed by them. Scientific and technical achievements are not sufficient to transform life. It is by means of the spirit that life will be truly transformed, because peace, freedom, and brotherhood are accomplishments of the spirit."

Flowers - an image of human beings of which we should only smell the scent
"Learn to nourish yourself with the scent of flowers without picking them, for the flower you pick is already dead. God had put this flower in his garden where it was radiant and free. But, you wanted to put it in a vase in your home or in your buttonhole so that everyone could see the flower belonged to you. Why? Are you not content with being able to smell its perfume?

Of course, the flowers I am talking about are purely symbolic. Flowers represent human beings, men and women, and the scent is their emanations, their light, warmth and poetic nature that radiates from them. No-one will criticize you for wanting to enjoy this scent; it is there for everyone to smell and in particular for those who are able to appreciate it. If, however, you picked the flower to take it away with you, you would be responsible for making the flower wilt and dry out. It was planted in God’s soil; why should you uproot it?"

Light - alone gives real power and knowledge
"The sun’s rays are forces which influence everything they penetrate, because they are inhabited by living entities. Their different manifestations correspond to different colours: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet, of which white light is the synthesis. When these rays are projected onto living beings, they work on them.

Initiates use light and colours to help human beings and they teach their disciples to work on themselves with light and colour. Each colour corresponds to a virtue, and this explains why each mistake you make reduces the force within you that corresponds to one of these colours. Since time immemorial the initiates have worked with light, for it is light alone that bestows true power and real knowledge. With the laser, official science is gradually discovering the extraordinary power of light, but the powers of spiritual light are far greater still."

Punishments, heavenly - wrong beliefs
"Why continue to uphold the belief that God punishes humans for their errors? Whatever their mistakes may be, human beings are neither forsaken nor punished by God. It is they who, through their errors, turn away from him, and in doing so they encounter nothing but cold, darkness and limitations of every kind; it is they themselves who have put themselves into this sad predicament.

People reason as if their actions were exterior to themselves and could be detached from them. No, these actions, whether good or evil, and even if the effects are felt externally to them, leave traces mainly within them, and these traces are indelible. So, if they wish to feel divine benevolence and love once more, there is only one solution: they must become conscious of their mistakes and strive to correct them."

Sexual energy - why make the effort to bring it under control
"Until men and women rediscover the meaning of the sublimation of sexual energy, they will be disappointed with their love experiences. When they feel desire, a mutual attraction, why do they immediately want to satisfy it? Why do they not try to acquire the control that could make them beings that are luminous and powerful? Of course it is difficult, but if they start to get into the habit of mastering themselves, they will gradually be able to use this urge to release within themselves forces of a subtler nature that will open their heart and make their thoughts more penetrating; they will discover such wealth in themselves and in all other beings that they could never have imagined until then.

For a certain time at least, when men and women meet, they should be content to marvel at each other while giving thanks to the divine Mother and heavenly Father for the energy given to them. They will thus experience states of consciousness of great poetry and elevation, and life will seem much more beautiful."

Silence - enables us to fuse with the light
"True silence can be defined as the highest region of our soul. The moment we reach this region, we enter into cosmic light.

Light is the quintessence of the universe. It passes through and permeates everything we see around us – people, nature, objects and even what we cannot see. The silence we strive to create within us during concentration, meditation and prayer has only one goal: fusion with this primal light which is vibrant and powerful, and which penetrates all of creation."

Emanations, human - are used by heavenly entities
"All those who have understood what spiritual life truly is become like gardens and orchards where all sorts of fruit ripen. The divine gardeners, the celestial entities come to visit and exclaim, ‘Oh! This cantaloupe, this watermelon, this peach... what magnificent fruits! Quick, let’s taste them!’ Yes, when they see a being that has finally awakened to the spiritual life, they care for them and delight in everything that emanates from their heart and soul. Every woman, every man can be visited by these heavenly gardeners.

Someone might say, ‘But I have nothing to give, I am not an orchard, so why would they come and seek something from me?’ In reality, there is always some useful element to be extracted... even from poisonous plants, if only to make medicines. This is why, even if they do not suspect it, human beings are always visited by creatures from other worlds. And if they persist in producing poison, certain entities will approach to gather substances which they will perhaps turn into vaccines!"

Divine justice - its manifestations
"It is possible to escape human justice, but it is impossible to escape divine justice. Why? Because these two forms of justice are not of the same nature. Divine justice cannot touch human beings externally, but it touches them inwardly. There are criminals who have always managed to escape human justice, but inwardly they are being destroyed: their health, their psychic state, everything is falling apart. On the face of things certain elements are still holding up, but gradually they will disintegrate, because it is the inner realm that nourishes them and that sustains the edifice; and if the inner realm collapses, then the outer realms will also soon fall. This is how divine justice makes itself known. And even if its sanctions are not immediately visible, they are instantaneous: the moment a human being makes a transgression, something in them darkens, something starts to disintegrate. Even if it takes years for this disintegration to appear externally, it has already started inwardly."

Human marriage - reproduces a cosmic phenomenon
"Marriage is not a human institution, or more precisely, it is human institution that reproduces a cosmic phenomenon: that of a marriage first celebrated on high between the heavenly Father and his wife, the divine Mother. And because human beings have been created in the image of God, they repeat this cosmic event in an instinctive but also unfortunately in an unconscious manner.

Christianity is still a long way from understanding this truth. For Christians, God is uniquely a masculine principle. Well, no, they are mistaken. If man seeks woman to unite with her and create, it is because they reproduce a model: God also has a wife with whom he unites in order to create. His wife is the divine Mother, Nature, Cosmic Matter. The law is absolute: everything which is below is like that which is above. Therefore, everything which takes place below is in the image of that which takes place on high. And God’s wife is a magnificent reality that exists as a principle."

Division - its dangers
"You have all heard of ‘double agents’, men and women who serve their own country and the enemies of their country at the same time. They think they will always have a safe haven, whatever happens. And in so many businesses as well, we see people serving both the interests of their employer and those of their competitors! Such double-dealing is very detrimental both for the countries and the companies, but also for the individuals themselves who, in the end, risk rejection by both sides.

This attitude is also widespread in the spiritual life. How many people unconsciously serve both God, and what in the Gospel Jesus calls Mammon (wealth) at the same time; that is to say, both the powers of heaven, the spirit, and those of the earth and physical matter? Each one of us must become conscious of this, because such duplicity is very dangerous and is a threat of spiritual death. That is why Jesus said, ‘You cannot serve God and wealth’."

Hardships - accept them but do not look for them
"Just because you eventually admit that hardships are useful does not mean you must go looking for them. In any case, you can be sure that they will come looking for you, because no-one on earth is sheltered from hardships. Above all, do not try to imitate those who are prepared to accomplish heroic acts despite the dangers, but who cannot tolerate the slightest inconveniencies in their daily life that they consider to be beneath them: they only make life unbearable for those around them.

Not everyone is destined to be a hero. On the other hand, everyone must strive humbly to accept and surmount the difficulties which face them every day. This is the only way to avoid even greater suffering. When we fail to make these efforts, the slightest hardships become truly insurmountable."

Prana - we can harness it through breathing
"We should ideally do our morning gymnastic and breathing exercises every day in nature so as to benefit from the purest air possible, since it’s from the air that we can harness this precious quintessence the Indian yogis called prana. Prana is life energy that exists everywhere, in the earth, in water, air and fire, but it is mainly carried by the sun’s rays, and is most abundant in the early morning. Each particle of this prana is like a drop of crystalline water, a tiny, suspended sphere of light filled with a spiritual essence. And we can capture some of these drops of light through our breathing.

By consciously passing the air through our nostrils, we set our subtle centres in motion and they work to extract the quintessence from the air. Once it has been captured, this quintessence circulates; it is like fire running through the network of nerves on either side of our spine. Just as blood circulates though veins, arteries and capillaries, prana circulates throughout our nervous system. Not only does our physical health depend on our nervous system, but so do the development of our spiritual faculties and the awakening of our chakras."

Laws - rule the psychic world as they rule the physical world
"In whatever domain it may be, all scientific progress has taken place only because human beings have discovered that the physical world obeys certain laws. But people want to think of the psychic or moral world as a realm of the greatest chaos and anarchy where there are no laws to be understood or rules to be respected! Well, this is not possible. And if by their rash or unconscious behaviour human beings upset the extraordinary mechanism of their psychic organism, they do irreparable damage.

Nothing is stable or reliable when we fail to respect these laws, because they constitute the framework of the universe – the psychic as well as the physical universe. Failure to recognise these laws is the greatest mistake. We behave as if they were a human invention, as if they rested on arbitrary and questionable foundations and can be transgressed without serious consequence. Not at all! Nothing and no one will be able to help those who transgress the laws of the psychic and spiritual worlds."

Harmony - its effects on health
"Why is it so important to live in harmony? Because it is a state which activates a series of physical and chemical reactions in the body, as a result of which all our physiological processes function more effectively. To live in harmony means that one has decided to experiment with the power of the spirit, of the soul, of thought, and of feeling, on the physical body.

How many people ruin their health because they endlessly nourish chaotic thoughts and emotions! They have not understood that these are malevolent forces which are destroying them, and they continue to seek the cause of their sickness elsewhere. When will they understand that it is often their thoughts and feelings that are making them ill? When they stop feeding them and try to introduce harmony within, by breathing it in and immersing themselves in it, they will immediately feel better."

Truth - we find it as we perfect ourselves
"Truth will never present itself as something so obvious that it imposes itself on us; neither is it something we can impose on others. It is we who, through an ordered and sensible psychic life, are capable of coming closer to the truth. Perhaps we will never attain it, but in seeking to perfect ourselves each day, we come closer to it.

So when certain believers glory in belonging to the one true religion, this does not mean that they themselves live the truth. A certificate of baptism does not guarantee possession of the truth. It is the efforts they make every day to wrest themselves from their weaknesses that is most important: this is the only sign that they belong to the true religion."

Sun - as we open ourselves to it, so we must open to God
"What is more visible and more radiant than the sun? But if you remain barricaded behind closed shutters, you will not even know that it exists. If you want to see it, you must at least open a window. The sun is not going to impose itself on you by penetrating your walls and shutters. In the same way, you must at least open a small skylight within you in order to discover the presence of God. Yes, it is you who must do something, not God.

God is there in his radiance, and this should be enough for you. It is up to you to do what is necessary to feel his presence. Those who have evolved to a higher degree of consciousness never cease to have revelations on the meaning and beauty of the world, so how could they help but feel this divine presence? This is what God is, and we gradually discover him as we come to know the richness and meaning of life."

Hope - is maintained through faith and love
"It is often said that hope keeps us alive. When human beings are dissatisfied with their lot or disappointed by events, they tend to project their hopes into the future, ‘Soon... in a few days... in a few months... things will get better.’ There is no doubt that hope is the very last thing to be abandoned, but while we hang on, waiting for things to get better, we need to count on something reliable. In order to hang on, we need to have faith. And faith relies on the conviction that the universe is governed by laws, and in particular the law according to which all seeds eventually bear fruit: if we have sown good seeds, we will one day harvest magnificent fruit. But we must also cultivate life within us and be energized by our love. For otherwise, hope will simply be a means to escape when faced with reality, and will also, one day, abandon us.

If we do not want to lose hope, we must keep faith and love forever alive within us and call on them for help whenever difficulties arise. This will enable us to keep hope to the very end."

Music - how to use it in your spiritual work
"When you listen to music, think of using it in your spiritual work. Music creates an atmosphere. It can also be compared to the wind filling the sails of a ship and pushing it towards new horizons: to the realization of your ideal and your highest aspirations.

Observe yourself when you listen to music: you feel uplifted and inclined to let your mind drift. Instead, try to focus your thoughts, on what you most ardently want to achieve. If you have a meeting with someone or have some work to complete, well, you can consciously prepare yourself for this meeting or this work by listening to music. If you seek wisdom, love and beauty, imagine that music lifts you up to the spiritual regions where you will find these qualities in abundance. Sound is a force that propels you, but it’s up to you to choose the direction in which you wish to be taken."

Thought - can strengthen the effect of medication
"It is necessary to treat physical illnesses with physical remedies, but that is not sufficient. Illness is often caused indirectly by some mistakes we have made in not knowing how to control thoughts, feelings or desires. As a result, if we do not seek to remedy these aspects, we cannot be healed permanently. The solution is to use all the resources medicine has to offer and at the same time address the emotional and mental aspects of the problem in order to eliminate the causes.

Therefore, take the medicine and undergo the treatment if necessary. But you must also accompany the treatment with work on the psyche, because with time thoughts and feelings eventually affect matter and take part in its transformation. This is true medicine. Taking medicines will always be more effective if supported by the power of your thought and the strength of your love."

Hardships - learning to overcome them
"We are at times struck by the faces of those who have had to confront the intrigues, attacks and betrayals of those around them and have successfully overcome their hardships: their eyes and their expressions manifest the wealth of their inner life. They have lost almost nothing; or, to use an image from the world of banking, they have lost only the interest for now, but their capital remains intact.

Observe and compare those who give in completely to their disappointments and discouragement with those who succeed in overcoming them. What a difference! Those who surrender to discouragement and bitterness have lost their true wealth, whereas the others win it back a hundredfold, a thousandfold: they are vivacious and enthusiastic, and they are always ready to get back to work. "

Circle, the - centre and periphery, spirit and matter
"The circle with the point in the centre is a structure which is found everywhere in the universe. It is that of the solar system, with the sun in its centre. And, at the other end of the scale, it is also that of the cell, which is composed of a nucleus, a substance called cytoplasm, and surrounding it, a skin or membrane. An analogous structure is also found in the egg (made up of the yolk, the white, and the shell) and also in most fruits (with the stone or the seeds, the flesh and the skin). All living organisms are made up of a centre, then a space in which life circulates, and finally a ‘skin’ which serves as a barrier, a boundary. The space surrounding the point represents matter. Matter is indisscociable from the notion of space, whereas spirit is like a single point. And spirit’s power lies in the fact that, although it is an imperceptible entity, it is active everywhere at the same time."

Food - talks to us when we are silent
"Just as animals have to eat to survive, human beings must eat too, but they should not content themselves with eating like an animal, in other words without consciousness. Why? Because food is not a dead substance, it has a voice, it speaks to us, it passes on its secrets to us. To receive these secrets we must learn to eat in silence and to concentrate on each mouthful of food we are eating.

Food is condensed sunlight and also condensed sounds because light is not separate from sound. To people who are attentive, who have practised hearing it, light speaks, it sings, it is music, it is the divine Word. In today’s noisy world we cannot hear anything, and that is a great shame. To understand the language of food, we must begin by restoring silence, not only around us, but also within us."

Suffering - accepted with love produces a perfume
"Suffering gives human beings an opportunity to enter into themselves to think, meditate and attract superior beings who will guide and help them. There is no greater science than to know how to suffer. Someone who knows how to suffer gives off the perfume of flowers. Distilling and exhaling perfume is the science of flowers. Because they have learned to withstand bad weather and survive in spite of all the dangers that threaten them, flowers give off an exquisite scent, and we love them for it.

But what fragrance is given off by those who scream and protest at the slightest pain or annoyance? Only one who has learned to accept their suffering distils this perfume. An initiate suffers when they have taken the burdens and sins of human beings upon themself, as Jesus did. This suffering that has been consented to with love, produces the most exquisite scent; and angels come to delight in its presence, just as we too rejoice over a blossoming tree in a garden."

The occult - its dangers for those who break the laws of cosmic harmony
"It is not enough to know the methods that enable you to become a clairvoyant, a magus, an alchemist and so on. You must first of all ask yourself what goal you are working towards and understand that there are laws to be respected. Those who practise occult methods for their personal benefit violate the laws of cosmic harmony, and in the end the cosmos itself vetoes their plans, and they fail miserably.

Many occultists or so-called spiritualists have ended in disaster, because they worked to accomplish certain things without first finding out whether they were acting in harmony with the plans of Cosmic Intelligence. Books on occult sciences suggest a great many techniques and rituals, but apart from the fact that many of these practices are risky, not one of them is as valuable as harmonising ourselves with the cosmic order. And this is not all: even the most inoffensive practices become dangerous and backfire in the hands of those who do not work to preserve this harmony, and who allow their anarchic tendencies to get the upper hand."


Monday, June 26, 2017

Love - a state of consciousness
"In order to know love, to feel love, to live love and to give love, we must work toward the harmonious development of our intellect, our heart and our will.

True love is not just a state of feeling, true love is a state of consciousness, the highest that a human being can attain. It is divine consciousness in all its fullness, and it is not given to everyone to experience it, in fact it is quite rare. Those who are touched by this love, even for an instant, feel as if they have been struck by lightning. Suddenly they receive something so sublime that they almost cannot bear it, but it is this love which enlightens them – which vivifies and reawakens them. Even if we liken it again to a flash of lightning, this consciousness bears no relation to what we generally call love, which is most often just a jumble of confused emotions. True love involves our entire being."

Divine Heritage - only this can fulfil us
"In whatever state you find yourself, even the most dire, be courageous, because a great inheritance, a divine legacy awaits you. If until now you have not yet taken possession of it, it is because you are still a minor. It is not possible to know exactly when, but it is certain that you will receive your inheritance when you reach adulthood. It may be in twenty or thirty year’s time, or perhaps in another incarnation. You might say, ‘But how will they find me? I will be living in a different country, and will have a different nationality.’ You can change anything you want: the celestial entities will always find you.

Therefore, every day, think about this divine heritage, and this thought alone will act most favourably on you.

Nothing promised to human beings will ever satisfy the immensity of their desires. A wife or a husband, a house, a little garden, a car... what are they? Even when people have acquired them all, they are still dissatisfied. Immensity, infinity, and eternity, this is our true heritage, the only one capable of fulfilling our heart’s desire."

Intelligence - depends on the food we take in on all planes
"Human intelligence is a manifestation of Cosmic Intelligence, but a very imperfect one; for in passing through minds and hearts which are continually prey to disordered passions, it is limited and obscured. Cosmic Intelligence cannot manifest perfectly through a being who does not know how to control their instinctual movements. The more they learn to control and purify themself, the better channel they are for this Intelligence.

The intelligence of a human being is not only the product of their studies and reflections; it depends on the good or bad state of all the cells in their body. They must pay careful attention to the quality of their physical food, but more importantly to the quality of their psychic food – their sensations, feelings, desires and thoughts, or they will remain closed to the greatest revelations. The only way to improve one’s intelligence is to improve one’s way of life. The initiates have always believed this; they have always known it and worked accordingly."


Friday, June 23, 2017

Scepticism - is an arrogant and pretentious attitude
"When faced with the truths of spiritual science, some people simply take on an air of suspicion and insinuation. They say, ‘Personally, I doubt that… I am a sceptic’, as if this scepticism were the fruit of many years of deep reflection. In fact, the opposite is true. They show how limited they are intellectually: they have not studied, nor do they wish to make the effort, so they find it convenient to remain in doubt. This spares them the trouble of true reflection and creates the illusion that they are great thinkers.

Someone who describes themself as a sceptic only reveals that they have never studied anything in depth. Yes, if they have failed to acquire certitude, it is because they have not gone far enough in their research. It also shows that they are arrogant and pretentious, since they attribute no value to all the knowledge that others, who came before them, had worked so hard to acquire and make available to us."

Field of consciousness - broadens when we contemplate immensity
"For most human beings, everyday life is made up of turmoil, complaints, struggles and bitterness. Why? Because their field of consciousness is so narrow and limited that nothing seems more important to them than their worries, their ambitions, their desires and their quarrels. They do not see the immensity of the sky above them, all this infinite space. If they decided to look up, they would tear themselves free of these limitations, and they would begin to breathe freely again. Yes, it is only a question of the direction in which you are looking: not so much downward, but more upwared.

Those who think of infinity and eternity begin to feel that they soar above everything, that nothing can touch them anymore – no misfortune, no insult, no loss – because a new consciousness is beginning to awaken within them."

Cells of our body - a populace which observes and imitates us
"By means of gestures, words, facial expressions, and clothes, a person makes an effort to be presentable when they go out to meet others. But when they are alone at home, they let themself go, because no one can see them. But are they really alone? No, they are inhabited by an entire population, by their cells which are living and intelligent entities. This populace observes them, and its scrutiny is much more severe than that of society, because it is not impressed with their carefully studied clothes or gestures, but with who they are, deep down.

So think more often about these citizens within you because if they feel you are allowing yourself to become inwardly lazy, sensual, unstable or violent, they say, ‘Since our master is setting us this example, we are going to imitate him, and he shall see what he shall see!’ And they rebel, not only in your psychic body but also in your physical body. On the contrary, however, if you know how to set a good example for them, this community is capable of working wonders."

Sun - learn to be like it by projecting light and love
"Why do we watch the sunrise? Why do we concentrate on it? In order to learn to mobilize all our thoughts, all our desires, and all our energies, and to direct them toward the realization of the highest ideal.

A person who works to unify the many chaotic forces that pull them in every direction and to project them in a single, luminous and life-giving direction becomes such a powerful centre that their presence, like the sun, is able to radiate through space. Yes, those who manage to control the tendencies of their lower nature can spread these blessings over the whole of humanity, and become a sun. They live in such freedom that they expand the field of their consciousness so that all may benefit from the abundance of light and love that pour forth from them."

Hardship - accept the idea that it is helpful for our evolution
"When we read the lives of the saints, the prophets and the initiates, we find that all of them have undergone terrible ordeals. Those who understood their meaning were not discouraged and did not rebel; they knew that it was thanks to this hardship that they would become divinities. But others who had not yet gained sufficient light were overwhelmed and sometimes even rebelled: why did heaven not come to their aid? They had sacrificed everything for it, and now they were being abandoned!

What spiritualists often lack is true knowledge. Because they have consecrated their life to God, they imagine they will see streams flowing with milk and honey, that they will receive white robes and crowns etc. It is true that such promises are found in the Bible, and it is also true that this will come to be, but only when they have passed every test! In the meantime, whatever their difficulties may be, those who possess true light must learn to use it for their evolution."

Invisible world - unconsciously, it is the realities of the Invisible world to which we attach the greatest importance
"A person who falls in love has no doubts about what they feel, even though they cannot see or touch their love, for feelings are impalpable. And someone who holds an opinion and has convictions, can they see them or touch them? No, and yet sometimes they are willing to fight and die for them. And someone who says, ‘Upon my soul and conscience, I condemn this man’, passes a sentence heavy with consequences, in the name of something they too have never seen. Why do they suddenly attach such importance to this invisible soul and conscience?

Without realising it, humans believe only in what is invisible and impalpable: everyone feels, loves, suffers, cries and celebrates for reasons that are invisible. And yet certain claim to believe only in what they can see and touch! What a contradiction!"


Saturday, June 17, 2017

Trees - consider them as living beings
"You have a tree in your garden: you can pass it several times a day without paying it any attention, as if it were a piece of stage set made from plaster or cardboard. But you can also be conscious that it is a living being, and you can even approach it, greet it, talk to it, and absorb what it represents.

You may say, ‘Greet a tree, talk to it, what good can that do?’ Of course, physically and materially, this changes nothing. But, on the subtle planes, the tree is enriched by your presence and, at the same time, you are enriched by it. It is you, in fact, who gains the most: you enter into communication with the life that circulates from the roots all the way to the tips of its branches, and you also become acquainted with the invisible creatures who live in it and look after it. Yes, for there are beings who work to maintain life everywhere in nature."


Friday, June 16, 2017

Clairvoyance - is acquired through love
"Do not seek clairvoyance through occult methods. True clairvoyance, the true eyes, are in the heart, and it is love which opens these eyes. A woman who loves a man sees things in him that no one else sees. And if she sees him as a divinity, do not tell her she is mistaken! Objectively speaking, yes, she is mistaken; but if she seems to exaggerate the beauty and virtues of her beloved, it is because she sees him as God originally created him, or as he will be when he returns to the womb of the Eternal.

You have not yet understood the power of love to open the eyes of the soul. Those of you who wish to become clairvoyant must learn to love. Your hearts must call out for help, like the blind man in the Gospels: ‘Have pity on us, Lord.’ Launch an appeal, and one day the light of the cosmos will come and ask you, ‘What can I do for you?’ ‘That my eyes may be opened!’ You will be heard: your eyes will be opened."

Universal Life - it is in this direction that we must strive
"On the pretext of protecting their independence and freedom, many people refuse to participate in the collective life. Well, these people do not realize to what extent they are actually limiting themselves. Like children they move within the small circle of their feelings, their desires, and their greed. What poverty, what misery! This limited state is normal for a child, but not for an adult.

Adults must show that they are able to think of others: their family first, of course, but also their neighbours, friends, colleagues, and fellow citizens. And even then, this is limited. The circle must become wider and wider, to include country, race, the whole of humanity, and still further, to encompass the universe, infinity... Rare are those who have reached beyond all these limitations, whose desires, thoughts, and interests converge on the collective, universal aspect of life. It is in this direction that we must strive."

Om - Aum - using this mantra
"The syllable Om corresponds to what – in the Western tradition – we call the Logos, the Word of creation. In the Hindu tradition, it represents the original sound and is associated with Kalahamsa, this cosmic bird that laid the primordial egg from which the universe was born.

Om is a syllable with very powerful vibrations which Hindus use as a mantra. They repeat it untiringly in their meditations. You too can pronounce this mantra either aloud or mentally. You can concentrate on this word without thinking of anything else and repeat, Om, Om, Om... You can also associate it with a breathing exercise. Inhale through the nose while mentally pronouncing Om four times, then exhale very slowly through the mouth while repeating Om. After a while, you will feel calmer and full of energy.

The syllable Om can also be decomposed as Aum, and it is in this form that we sing it. If we are conscious of the magical power of sounds, we can gradually feel what perfect forms this song produces in our soul."

Difficulties - do not magnify them in advance
"When you are faced with a problem or receive unpleasant news, observe your reactions. Right away, an entire internal mechanism is set in motion: you become anxious, you imagine the worst and, as a result, through no-one’s fault but your own, what began as a small pebble becomes an enormous rock that obstructs your path. It is senseless.

In future, be careful: the moment you receive unpleasant news, and are faced with a bad surprise, instead of giving way immediately to anger, despondency or grief, stop and say, ‘I’ll wait, it may not be so serious, things will work out…’. In doing so, instead of blowing this event out of all proportion and being crushed even before things happen, you reinforce yourself. Why do you always expect things to turn out badly, and for the worst?"

Knowledge - is power
"We listen in wonder when some people speak: they express themselves with such intelligence, such clarity, such eloquence! But, in fact, it is not enough to understand things intellectually and to explain brilliantly what you have understood; your understanding must manifest in every realm of your existence.

Someone says, ‘I understand, I understand...’ All right, but if they really understood, they should act according to what they understood. But for most people, there is a world between understanding and achievement. They understand that we must be honest, sincere, forgiving, altruistic... and that is enough for them; how they then behave, that’s another question! Well, they still have to learn that true understanding is never separated from achievement. Someone who does not express by their actions what they claim to have understood, has not really understood. If they had understood, they would have achieved. Because knowledge is power. If you cannot achieve, you do not yet understand: so strive to acquire the missing elements of your knowledge that you need in order to achieve."

Conflicts - often originate in a trivial event
"So many tragedies are caused by people who claim to work for good, and yet cannot respond reasonably when faced with a minor offence or injustice! They mean well, but at the slightest provocation they create interminable conflict.

Most conflicts originate as miniscule incidents which, instead of being dealt with as they could have been, because they were not dealt with right away, assumed undue importance and eventually escalated. We know this, but do we draw lessons for the future? Do we ask ourselves, ‘If I adopt a certain attitude, if I make a certain decision, will my contribution improve matters or complicate them further?’ We have to wonder whether human beings truly desire good. If they did, they would succeed in achieving it. And in any case, it would be easier for them to put out a small fire at the beginning, instead of having to control a big fire which their intransigence and unwillingness had allowed to spread."

Faith - whatever is sown bears fruit
"Heaven does not require that people be perfect, only that they work to perfect themselves. One day everyone should be able to say, ‘Now I must sow seeds in my soul – luminous thoughts, the love of a high ideal – and I shall continue to watch over them, to warm them, water them, and nourish them with all that is best in me. I know that the universe is governed by laws, and that according to one of these laws, every seed eventually produces fruit, so I try to sow only the best seeds.’ And this is truly to have faith: to be convinced that every seed sown in the soil of your soul will bear fruit.

So, whatever religion you may belong to – Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, or any other – until you understand this universal law and apply it in your life, you do not possess faith but only beliefs, which cannot get you very far. Rather, they can take you a long way, but it is down the road of laziness, failure, discouragement, rebellion, and so on."

Love - without expecting anything
"You can have plans, you can make wishes, but life is such that you can never be sure of anything, not of events and even less of human beings. And it is pointless to bemoan the fact: it is so. You may say that you need to count on the love you receive from your parents, from your friends and those around you. That is true, but you must know that while they will sometimes think of you, quite often they will also forget you, because they have their own worries and their own preoccupations. So, do not count so much on them, and understand that it is within yourself that you must establish something stable.

Yes, we must learn to know the nature of things and to understand what we should do to avoid one disappointment after another. Since you need love in order to be happy, since you feel it is love that makes you flourish, that provides revelations, and since you want your love to last forever, well then, love, but do not wait to be loved. If those who are dear to you respond to your love and your trust, well and good, give thanks to heaven, but do not count on it. It is only in this way that you will always feel free."

God created man in his image - the consequences of this truth
"In the book of Genesis it is written that on the sixth day God created humankind and that he created them in his image. But there are very few people, even among Jews and Christians who have heard this passage so often, that take seriously the idea of the sublime future that awaits humankind. So what do they make of this basic truth revealed in their Holy Scriptures?

If humankind was created in the image of God, we must be logical and accept the consequences. And indeed, one of the consequences is that despite all their imperfections and weaknesses, they are promised a heavenly and sublime future. We have no right to limit the extent of this truth, because otherwise, what future do we envisage for the image of God?"

Evil - the perception we have of it is very relative
"What is harmful for some can be harmless or even beneficial for others. Some creatures are so familiar with fire that they are not burned. Snake venom is deadly for human beings, while on certain animals it has no effect. Put still more simply, some people cannot tolerate the air (they catch cold) or the light (it irritates their eyes), and yet there is nothing better than air and light.

It can be said, then, that anything human beings consider to be evil is not necessarily so. It may be disturbing and threatening to them for the time being, because they are still weak or ill. What they express about it thus reflects only their personal views and their resilience; it is a very relative judgement. But ask the initiates and their response will surprise you: because they have learned to make use of evil, it has become an asset for them. And how? They transform it."

Initiations - their goal: to unite spirit and matter
"Much has been said and written about initiations, because at different times and in different places on earth they have taken very different forms. The fact is that all initiations, past as well as present, wherever they take place, have only one goal: to unite spirit and matter. Yes, one goal only: the fusion of spirit and matter, one could also say, of human beings and their Creator.

You will ask, ‘But then, if it is only to achieve this single goal, why are the explanations and methods for reaching it so varied and numerous?’ It is because the knowledge necessary to realize this fusion is infinite. Human beings must place all their means and all the knowledge they ceaselessly work to acquire, in the service of this one goal: to unite with the Divinity, to become one with the first Cause. For as long as they seek something other than that, they will simply wander along paths that lead them nowhere."

Thoughts - are children we are responsible for
"A thought has no physical substance, and yet it is not abstract but a real and living being. This is why you must be aware and observe your thoughts.

Thoughts are like children you have to feed, wash and teach. Sometimes, without your realizing, they cling to you, drain your strength and exhaust you. And sometimes these children also escape and roam the world, looting and pillaging as they go. But in the invisible world, as on earth, there is also a police force, and it comes looking for you to make you understand that you are responsible for the damage your children have caused. Then you are taken to court, where you are ordered to pay damages with interest; these payments are your sorrows, your sadness, discouragement and bitterness. So pay attention to your thoughts – do not neglect them. Work to form angelic and heavenly children, who will always accompany you and bring you blessings."

Sexual force - ‘the most powerful force of all forces’
"What is this ‘most powerful force of all forces’ about which Hermes Trismegistus speaks in the Emerald Tablet? It is sexual force, since no other force in the universe can compare to it; no other force has the power to create life.

Hermes Trismegistus also says of this force that, ‘the sun is its father’, which means that sexual energy is of the same nature as solar energy, that it is impregnated with the life, the light and the holiness of the sun. Its use is not therefore limited to procreation; it can also be consecrated to creations of a spiritual order. But how many human beings are ready to admit that this act by which man fertilises woman can become a solar activity?"

Pentecost - the Spirit descends upon us to the extent that we are capable of elevating ourselves
"Someone who strives to act with their soul and spirit, inwardly transforms their difficulties, their suffering. Even if they can do nothing about external events, where others get discouraged and collapse, they find strength, nourishment and the energy to move forward.

Never submit, we must never capitulate, but try to remedy. And to remedy, there is prayer. It is for us to act first. Do not wait for the Lord, in his clemency and mercy, to come and visit us. The Lord will not come down. You might say, ‘But we read in the scriptures that on the day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles in the form of tongues of fire!’ In reality, in order to receive the Holy Spirit, a person must first inwardly elevate themself to the celestial regions, where they merge with the Divinity. And even if we say that the Holy Spirit ‘has descended’ upon them, on the contrary it is they who have risen up to to it and it has filled them with its presence. The Holy Spirit descends upon us to the extent that we are capable of elevating ourselves."

Black magic - how to consider it
"Black magic exists, I know, but what I know most of all is that by our way of thinking about objects and events, we increase or diminish their power. Since black magic exists – and even supposing that ill-intentioned people want to use it against us – it is by having faith in its power that we reinforce it. Instead, tell yourself that as a son or daughter of God you cannot be attacked so easily by the forces of evil, and it will not affect you.

But you have to be reasonable. If you suffer a failure, an illness, an accident, or a separation, I urge you not to be hasty to attribute it to black magic. First of all, ask yourself sincerely if the cause is not to be found in yourself instead, and find out what you must do to improve the situation. Do not waste precious time in wild imaginings that will do nothing but aggravate your difficulties and your suffering."

Birds - symbol of a spiritual person
"Do not be ambitious and subject yourself to exhausting rivalries. Choose an activity where you have plenty of space, or are perhaps even alone, for no one will be able to prevent you from growing. If you go and plant yourself beside a great tree, it will complain you are encroaching on its territory. And what will happen if you venture into the territory of a wild animal? Be like a bird instead: it has a tiny little body, fragile and light, with a tiny beak, but it also has wings to fly freely in the air. A bird has no ambition to impose itself on a wild animal; the only thing it asks for from the Creator is its song, joy and freedom of movement.

True sons and daughters of God are like birds; they do not want to clear a path through the jungle, but fly every day in the sky to bring back peace, light and joy, which they then share with all their brothers and sisters."

Spiritual royalty - implies mastery of self
"The notion of royalty necessarily goes hand in hand with that of self-mastery. A monarch who only seeks to impose on others but has not learned to control themself is not really a king or queen, but a slave. A true monarch is someone who first and foremost has become master of themself.

Only a person committed to the ideal of overcoming the domination of their selfish tendencies and to control and orientate their thoughts, feelings and desires, is on the royal road. They inspire respect from all those who come near them because they have not only power but also authority. And then, even the spirits of nature bow at their passing, whispering among themselves, ‘Look, a king or queen will be passing by, let’s go and welcome them,’ and they celebrate. The nature spirits crowd around them because their whole being emanates a fluidic substance of great purity, imbued with soothing and curative influences, felt even by animals, plants and stones."

Love - must be lived in joy and light
"Can we, or even should we continue to love a being who, at a given moment, adopts dishonest and unworthy attitudes and behaviour? Many men and women have had to ask themselves this question. Of course, our love for others always produces certain beneficial effects for them on the subtle planes, and ultimately it can influence them. On the other hand, it is not advisable for our mental balance to carry in our head and in our heart someone who, having taken a wrong turn, is becoming a public danger.

Love must be lived with joy and in the light. And if you feel that a certain man or woman no longer deserves your love, do not persist, there are so many beings on the earth who do, whether you know them or not! It is essential that you never stop loving, because it is love that keeps you alive."

Patience - strengthen it by breathing
"In your day-to-day life, you will have noticed how often you lack patience! And this lack of patience prevents you from expressing all your good qualities. Every day then, try to develop the ability to bear things more patiently. In other words, instead of immediately reacting to words and events, be quiet inside, breathe deeply, and call upon all the powers of peace, harmony and light for they will help you find a better attitude.

It is important to learn to work with breath! That is also why, when you do the breathing exercises in the morning, you can inwardly repeat the word ‘patience’ and fill yourself with its meaning, vibration and aura. And as you say this word, add an image that increases its power, until this virtue finally permeates your whole consciousness."

Failures - lessons to be learned
"How many people who lack wisdom and experience imagine they can assume great responsibilities and qualify as authorities! And when they fail, they think they are victims, that others failed to appreciate them, understand them, or support them in their undertaking. Well, this is the worst kind of attitude.

When facing their failures, people must understand that they are not yet ready to realize their ambitions. Even if they are knowledgeable or have a strong will, this is not enough. When they ought to have acted with understanding and attention, they were perhaps closed, hard, and stubborn. When they ought to have been diplomatic and self-controlled, they were perhaps awkward and impatient. Therefore, instead of making the whole world responsible for their failures, they should develop some humility and accept the fact that they have much to learn. It is only from this moment on that success and positive results will be possible for them."

The sun - helps us find our own center
"When you look at the sun, the center of our solar system, try to find the center in you: your spirit – almighty, wise, omniscient, universal love – and draw nearer to it every day! While you remain disconnected from the center, you will be tossed around, at the mercy of the winds and storms that blow throughout the world.

Of course, you will tell me that your daily tasks force you to leave the center to go to your activities at the periphery. Yes, but moving away from the center, when necessary, does not mean cutting the connection with the center. On the contrary, the more activities we have in the world – the periphery – the stronger should be the link with the center, with the spirit. It is from this center that you receive the energy, light and peace you need to carry out these activities. And the sun helps you to maintain the link with the center within you."

Scientists - and their contradictions
"A scientist will tell you that only those things which can be observed, calculated, measured, weighed, compared, and classified are real and credible. All the rest is of dubious interest and should be ignored, they say. Very well, but this severely limits the scope of their consciousness, since two-thirds (for the sake of argument, let us say two-thirds) of the life of a human being is taken up by activities which cannot be weighed or measured. Yes, two-thirds of our time is spent living: nothing more.

And if such a life merits no attention and is of no interest, one wonders why a scientist goes on living. Just like other people, they breathe, eat, drink, sleep, and walk; they have thoughts, feelings, sensations, and desires; they meet other people who they like or dislike – they sometimes even hug them – and they do all of this without wondering whether they are doing it scientifically. How can they bear to live a life which is unscientific? They should refuse! Of course it’s much better to continue living. But they should take all these manifestations of life seriously, even though, for the time-being, they escape their scientific investigations."

‘My Father is still working, and I also am working’ - commentary
"Jesus said, ‘My Father is still working, and I also am working.’ But who, even among the initiates, can pronounce such words? Who even knows what this work is? Most human beings can only say, ‘I do odd jobs…I struggle…I rack my brains…I make some feeble attempts.’ That is all most humans can say. But real work is something completely different. And this is why, after two thousand years, we have not yet fathomed the deep meaning of the phrase ‘My Father is still working, and I also am working.’ It has remained unused and meaningless. Have we ever wondered what this work of God is, how he works, and in what way Jesus was involved in this work?

The work of Christ is to purify, to harmonize and illuminate, and to direct everything toward the divine Source, which in turn pours forth the currents of life over the entire earth. Only someone who has managed to rise as far as the divine Spirit in order to imbue themself with its quintessence and then to distribute its benefits to all creatures, has earned the right to say ‘I am working.’"

Sensitivity - be able to open yourself to the riches of the divine world
"The more sensitive you become, the more likely you are to suffer over all that you see and hear around you. But should we become insensitive in order to avoid suffering? No, with such reasoning, we would quickly become as hard as rock. You must not be afraid to suffer, and particularly in this regard, suffering should not be given much consideration. It is preferable to enhance one’s sensitivity, even if we have to suffer, because it is the degree of sensitivity which determines the grandeur and nobility of a human being. You must not, however, confuse sensitivity with sentimentality.

According to initiatic science, to be sensitive is to be able to open oneself more and more to the splendour and wealth of heaven, to capture the marvels of the divine world to the point of barely sensing the stupidity, the vulgarity, and the meanness of human beings. The great masters, and above them the angels and archangels, do not suffer over ugliness; they no longer notice it. They see only beauty, and they live in unceasing joy."

Universal life - in which we must participate consciously
"It is natural that everyone is attached to their family, their region, their country and that they work to support them. But that does not prevent them expanding their field of consciousness and thinking much further, much higher. In their heart, in their soul, they must not accept limits. In the same way that you participate in the life of your family, your city, your country, you can learn to participate in cosmic life.

Why do you think you have to be an astronaut in a rocket in order to travel and work in space? The earth travels through the universe, propelled by the sun, and for human beings on earth it is as if they are on a spaceship making its way among the stars. This makes them cosmic citizens capable of participating consciously, luminously, in universal life. This is their true affinity, their true dimension."

Use kindness the foundation of your life - a rule from Master Peter Deunov
"Master Peter Deunov gave the following rule: ‘Use kindness as the basis of your life, justice as balance, wisdom as limit, love as delight, and truth as light.’ If we think deeply about this rule, we will find it extremely instructive.

Kindness is the only solid basis on which to build a structure; even if this edifice is beautiful and intelligent, it will collapse if kindness, this benevolence we are capable of showing to all beings, does not support it.

Justice is a quality of balance; to be fair, as illustrated by scales, is knowing how to keep things in balance at all times: don’t weigh only on one tray, but make sure a little is added on one side, while a little is subtracted from the other.

Wisdom is a limit, a barrier; that can protect us from external and internal enemies which threaten us.

Love gives us a taste for things; even if we have riches, knowledge and fame, how insipid life would seem without love!

Truth is the light that illuminates our path; thanks to which we move ahead without the risk of losing our way or falling."

Flowers - have a voice we can hear
"We see roses everywhere, and we give them as gifts, but what is their true significance? Once they have been placed in a vase, we barely notice them or their fragrance when we pass them. However a rose becomes more alive if we look at it with an enlightened consciousness; a contact is established, and you sense that a splendid being lives in this flower and that it speaks to you.

Some will say that it is not possible, that we only read this kind of thing in fairy tales. They will never hear the voice of flowers. In fact there are different ways of hearing the voice of a flower! And if what I am telling you seems to have come from a fairy tale, know that these tales are not merely beautiful stories invented for children by people of great imagination. What is said in fairy tales has a profound reality which you will finally grasp when you open yourself to exchanges with all of nature."

Incarnation, each - must prepare us for the next
"On departing this earth, it is not only their material possessions that human beings must leave behind. Everything that has come to them in the realms of intelligence and feeling from other people, books, works of art and so on also disappears, unless they have profoundly lived it, experimented with it and verified it. And if they have not done so, when they return in the next incarnation, they will have to learn everything again, and with a great deal of difficulty. Just because someone can speak or write on a variety of subjects is no proof that they truly understand them, and they may have to start all over again from the beginning.

And here is one of the most striking examples. Men and women get married and have children, and many of them feel as helpless and lost in this situation as if they were experiencing it for the first time. Yet how many times have they experienced it in previous incarnations. But since they have never truly sought to deepen their role and their responsibilities as husband, wife, or parent, it is something completely new for them and they make mistakes and suffer. Therefore you must take each role, each activity, seriously so as not to be so helpless in a future incarnation."

Inner flame - strengthen it so that no breath can extinguish it
"Each of you is inhabited by a flame, a divine aspiration, and, although it may be weak, you have the power to feed it so that it becomes an enormous blaze. When you begin to feel this flame burning within you, take care not to expose it to every passing breeze that could extinguish it. In other words, choose carefully the people you associate with, the literature you read, and the entertainment you watch. Choose the best influences for your heart, your mind, your soul and your spirit, influences that strengthen you inwardly.

When you feel you are truly strong and unwavering, you will be able to confront anything, and the same experiences that would have destroyed you before will now strengthen you. When a flame has been given sufficient fuel to become a blaze, no storm can extinguish it. On the contrary, it fans it."

Our efforts - necessarily produce results
"When the chemist pours a few drops of a reagent called ‘litmus’ into a clear acid solution, the liquid turns red. Then, drop by drop, they add an alkaline solution. At first there is no change. But they continue slowly, drop by drop, and all of a sudden the liquid turns blue. From this phenomenon, we can draw a lesson about psychic life. Someone who transgresses divine laws does not immediately notice the disintegration that occurs within them. They imagine they can continue with impunity... But one day, with just one more transgression, they collapse inwardly.

This law obviously holds true for good as well. Someone comes and complains to me that for years they have worked on themself, without obtaining any result, and they are discouraged. I have to tell them that their reasoning is faulty, because the effects of this work are not immediately visible and tangible. They must continue, and one day, inevitably, the transformation will occur. With good as for evil, you must not imagine that nothing is happening just because, for a long period of time, you do not notice anything."

Our higher self - purify ourselves in order to receive its messages
"Our higher self, our divine self is constantly sending us messages; and if we do not receive them, or if we receive them wrongly, it is because we have accumulated too many impurities within us. Consider an oil lamp whose glass is smoky: its flame is not as luminous, as far-reaching or as beautiful as when the glass is absolutely transparent; it must be cleaned.

A human being can be likened to an oil lamp: their inner light wants to manifest through them, this light, which is love and wisdom, cannot pass through all the layers of impurities they have accumulated from leading their immoderate lifestyle, by not respecting in their intellect and in their heart, the laws of wisdom and love. They must therefore cleanse and purify themselves until their physical, astral, and mental bodies become so transparent and pure that this divine light, buried within them and struggling to emerge from the darkness, may finally shine in all its brilliance."

Descent into matter - was foreseen by Cosmic Intelligence
"In the book of Genesis, it is said that Adam and Eve, having disobeyed God were driven out of Paradise. But this is only a symbolic story of the descent of human beings into matter. This descent, in fact, was neither a mistake nor an accident; it was foreseen by Cosmic Intelligence. Why? Because in order to attain a more complete knowledge, human beings were required to develop their intellectual faculties. To develop these faculties, they had to devote themselves to the exploration of matter, which meant placing themselves in conditions which temporarily diminished their perception of the spiritual world.

Human beings today find themselves at a stage of their development where they are
