Our most frequent actions are those of our ordinary everyday lives, but we can learn to transpose them onto a spiritual plane in order to accede to higher orders of life.

When we eat, for instance, what really counts is not the food itself, but the energy contained within it, the imprisoned quintessence in which life itself lies hidden.

The substance of food is merely a support. We must seek out the quintessence within this matter in order to nourish our subtle bodies.

It is a mistake to think that we eat merely to feed our physical body. We also eat in order to nourish our heart, our intellect, our soul and our spirit.
