‘As I explained earlier, the subtle particles emanating from the two perfume bottles touch and blend with each other as they rise into the atmosphere. Similarly, human beings, by means of their thoughts and feelings, by their quintessence, can fly through space and unite with other beings. The physical bodies are apart, but their souls meet and blend like perfumes. Which is more important, the bottles or the perfume they contain, the container or the contents?
Which view to adopt – mechanistic or living?
It all depends on your point of view, on whether you are interested in the outer or the inner reality, the bark of the tree or the life that flows through it, the mechanical or the living aspect of things. If you adopt a mechanistic point of view, obviously, you will believe that the sun is neither alive nor intelligent. But if you envisage the living dimension of the universe, you will find that there is nothing more powerful or more intelligent than the sun.
By means of our subtle bodies we can reach and unite with the Soul of the Universe
You have the choice between two points of view, but it is imperative to realize that, if you look only at the mechanical, lifeless aspect of the universe, you will always be blind, unhappy and ill. What I have been saying will help you to understand how humans, by means of their subtle bodies, can reach and unite themselves with the Soul of the Universe.
And this is the reason for the existence of prayer. Prayer is simply a communion and communication with our Maker, an act by which we rise above our own level, by which we transcend ourselves in order to create works of absolute, divine perfection. And this, too, is an essential element of the cosmic moral law.’
