The Church of St Peter has always been appallingly intolerant, chopping off heads or burning at the stake all those who refused to think or behave exactly according to the rules it laid down. The members of the Church of St John, on the other hand, have never cut off anyone’s head; they have never [...]

All religions set aside one day of the week as a holy day, a day of prayer, but they have not all chosen the same day: for Christians it is Sunday, for Jews, Saturday, for Muslims, Friday, and so on. But is there any real difference between the days of the week? No, none at [...]

Mosaic, Church of Transfiguration, Mount Tabor, Lower Galilee, Israel The New Jerusalem—what it is and how it will come to the world—this is what I have to reveal to you today.

My trust in the philosophy of the initiates is absolute. Yes, absolute, for when you examine it closely and compare it to all the other philosophies that exist, you see that it is the only one that is left standing; all the others are disqualified. You see how simple it is: take away the centre [...]

I have always maintained that the only science worth studying in depth is the science of human nature. Yes, at the centre of everything should be this science, and all the other sciences—physics, chemistry, astronomy, biology, and so on—should be at its service.
