‘Yes, I am bringing you a new philosophy, a new way of behaving, a new way of thinking, acting, and manifesting oneself. This new way is very different from all that other people have taught about religion, but I cannot help that. I have been given the task of bringing you these new notions.
Today we must work for the whole world
The old notions were valid for the individual but not for the collectivity. The time has come to stop working only for our own individual salvation. Today we must work for the whole world, for the whole of mankind, and the only way we can do so is by putting this new philosophy into effect and rising mentally to heaven so as to bring the light, love, peace and eternity of heaven down to the physical plane.
This starts with work on our own physical bodies
This process of bringing heaven down to earth has to begin with our own physical bodies; the life of heaven must impregnate and radiate from our physical bodies. When human beings achieve this, the kingdom of God will truly come about, and each one will be a light, a sun, a spring of water. The great thing is to accept the teaching of the triangle that points downwards, the triangle of the spirit, and no longer cling exclusively to the philosophy of the triangle of matter.
The tendency of matter is to ascend; that of the spirit to descend. This same pattern is reproduced by a man and woman who unite in the act of love: the man faces down and the woman up.
Spirit needs to fertilise matter
In this, human beings are simply behaving in conformity with principles established from all eternity by cosmic intelligence, according to which matter—which needs to be spiritualized—and the spirit—which needs to be materialized—meet and are joined in space. And it is in this union that the spirit fertilizes matter.
As you see, there is symbolism, eloquence and philosophy in every human action, but human beings themselves see and understand none of it. Our task is to bring the spirit down to earth. This is why you must use your meditations and prayers to beg for this light and visualize it, visualize this spirit, this divine force, descending into you and impregnating every cell of your being.’
