If you are interested in your own happiness and fulfilment you must think about harmony; work to bring yourself into harmony with the whole universe. If you persevere at this, the day will come when you will feel that your whole being, from the tips of your toes to the top of your head, is in communion and vibrating in unison with Cosmic Life.
When this moment comes – not before – you will understand what life, creation and love are; before that, it is not possible to understand. Intellectually, outwardly, you may imagine that you have understood, but no: genuine understanding cannot be gained through the activity of a few brain cells.
It is the whole being, the whole body that must understand – even your feet, your arms, your stomach and liver… True understanding involves every cell of your body. Understanding is a sensation: you feel something and then you know it, you understand it because you have tasted it.
No amount of intellectual understanding can compare to the understanding of sensation. When you experience love, hatred, anger or sorrow, you know what it is. If you say that you know what love is, without ever having been in love, you are lying! But if you have truly experienced love, then you know what it is.
You may be unable to explain or express it, but you know it: that is true knowledge. Knowledge is to vibrate in unison with all that exists. When your whole body vibrates in unison with a truth, a sensation or an object, you know that truth, sensation or object. Therefore, the essential preoccupation of disciples must be to attune themselves to the Heavenly Hierarchies so as to vibrate in unison with them. If they work for this harmony night and day, they will, one day, experience sensations beautiful and precious beyond words.
