Thought of the Day

Venturing into the subconscious is as dangerous as diving into the depths of the ocean, because monsters swarm there as well, ready to devour those imprudent enough to descend without proper instruction or equipment. You may say, ‘But where do we go to get equipped and to receive instruction?’ Only in a region that is above consciousness and self-consciousness: in the superconsciousness, in the divine consciousness. Before diving into your subconscious without danger, you must elevate yourself to the higher regions of your consciousness, in order to acquire knowledge of the structure of these obscure regions and the nature of the entities which live in them. And it is here as well that you can develop a powerful will and a luminous aura which will allow you to descend without danger...

Thought of the Day

In life on earth as it is today, no reasonable person would deny that money is useful. But it is only in the material plane that money is of any use. In the psychic plane, in the spiritual plane, you can do no good with money. There, it is light you need, light which is fluid gold. If you love the light, if you know how to attract it, you already possess gold in the spiritual plane. The richer you are with such gold, the better you are able to go to the heavenly shops to ‘buy’ what you cannot find in any other shop: wisdom, love, truth, infinity, eternity, and so on. This is why sages and initiates endeavour to accumulate as much gold as possible in the spiritual plane, and they enrich themselves with many qualities and virtues, and subsequently make others benefit from...

Thought of the Day

People who pray do so to obtain something, but it is in fact in prayer itself that you should find joy, in the act of praying, knowing that the day your prayers will be answered you will no longer have the joy of asking. When wishes are fulfilled, there is suddenly something lacking, and we miss those wonderful days of the past when we waited for something marvellous, picturing it in our imagination. This is why you must find all your joy in the bond your prayer creates between you and heaven, otherwise, once you have obtained what you have asked for, God only knows whether you will be truly satisfied. People who have understood the true meaning of prayer will always be happy, even if they have nothing, because no one can stop them from creating in the subtle world of thought extraordinary...

Thought of the Day

The history of Christianity is full of accounts describing the suffering of saints and mystics who discovered that their irresistible impulse projecting them towards the Lord did not spare them certain physical sensations. On the contrary, the more their soul became inflamed with the fire of divine love, the more their sexual force tormented them. They were torn apart, and some even went so far as to believe they were possessed by the devil. No, the devil has nothing to do with this. It is simply a question of knowing the laws that govern humans’ psychic nature. One of these laws is that when a certain mechanism is activated in the higher part of a being – their spiritual body – another mechanism is automatically activated in their lower part – their physical body. When, therefore,...

Quote of the Day

Our life is simply a series of combustions. Yes, our thoughts, feelings and actions, all our expressions are accompanied by combustion. To generate energy for our life, materials must be burnt somewhere. This combustion inevitably produces residues that must be thrown away; otherwise, what would happen? If we do not clean the glass of an oil lamp, it will not give light anymore; if we do not clear away the ashes of a coal stove, it cannot give off heat. In the same way, if humans have not learnt to rid themselves of their wastes, they sink into darkness and cold. Unfortunately, most humans think they can do any kind of activity without taking care to eliminate impurities. And yet they know they must wash themselves every day, otherwise the pores of their skin will be blocked,...

Word of the Day

When a person speaks, it shows that they want to take the initiative, to direct, and even to dominate. On the contrary, by remaining silent, a person indicates they are ready to listen and to receive what another says to them. Considered from a psychological point of view, silence is therefore the distinctive feature of the feminine principle, which receives, submits to, and is shaped by the masculine principle. What conclusion can you draw from this for your spiritual life? That you should learn to re-establish silence within you, so that the divine Spirit, the masculine principle, may work on your psychic matter. As long as you are rebellious, stubborn, and anarchic, spirit cannot act on you, and you remain weak and miserable. No sooner do you manage to create silence than you...

Word of the Day

What is most important for the evolution of human beings is not the conditions or events through which they must pass during their lifetime, but who they are; that is to say, what their moral qualities and character are. If they possess good reasoning powers, a generous heart, and the ability to control themselves when either success or disaster come their way, it bodes well for them. For example, when someone suddenly inherits a large fortune or makes a brilliant marriage, everyone exclaims, ‘Oh! What happiness, what luck!’ Only sages first study the mentality of the person before making pronouncements. If the person is capricious, weak, and egotistical, they pity them, because with such a temperament, the higher the person rises, the greater their fall will be. Whereas another...

Quote of the Day

When you meditate and pray intensely, you send out harmonious waves, and these waves go out to the world to reach men and women who open themselves to this idea of brotherhood for which we work. Yes, by the powerful and harmonious waves you emit, you send messages that are picked up by beings who are receptive and prepared for this. And without even knowing where this impetus comes from, they often make the resolution to work for peace and brotherhood in the world, for spreading the light, and working for the glory of God. Wherever they may be and whoever they may be, even if we do not know them, all these beings are linked to us and receive messages. It is the design of heaven that all children of God be united for the coming of his kingdom on earth. Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov

Word of the Day

Why do you always feel hunger and thirst within yourself? Through thought, you could attract all the subtle elements given out so abundantly in space, all the nourishment longed for by your soul and spirit. These elements are at your disposal with no prohibitions, no limitations. Any prohibitions or limitations come from you, because you are lazy. So now, why not try to overcome these limitations and see the immensity awaiting you. The Lord is more than generous: he distributes everything. Life is everywhere: in water, trees, rocks, and mostly in air and in the sun. In spite of this, humans are dying inwardly and spiritually, because they do not want to make the effort to accept the life that could feed their soul and spirit. God did not intend to feed only some people, leaving...

Word of the Day

For most people, thinking of the future means wondering what their life will be like in ten, twenty or maybe fifty years time. Well, that is all pretty poor. These concerns are far too short-sighted and of no great interest. The true future for humankind, and the only one worth concerning ourselves with, is that one day we will shine like the sun, that the universe will be fragrant with our presence, that the air will be filled with the fragrance of our soul and that everywhere we go, music will be heard because all our cells are singing. Every day, for a few minutes at least, imagine this distant future and all at once you will feel hope, courage and life return. It is this faith in a magical future that will make a new being of you. We hear the word ‘new’ used everywhere...

Quote of the Day

If you leave a bit of food around in a room, right away certain insects will appear. If it is a little honey or jam, you will have wasps and flies. If it is cheese, you will have mice. How do these various insects and animals sense from afar that there is something there for them? And to make them disappear, all you have to do is to clean. These well-known details of everyday life help you to better understand certain phenomena of the psychic life. When people entertain certain thoughts, or certain desires or feelings that are neither luminous nor pure, right away entities which like these impurities arrive and make their home in them in order to feed off such impurities. In what state will such people who attract dark entities feel? But if they purify themselves, if they begin to...

Word of the Day

The wood we use to make a fire is said to be dead: branches that are lifeless, black, and twisted. But once they are alight, the fire transforms them into light, heat and energy. You might say, ‘We know all this, but what do these branches have to do with us?’ They concern you because symbolically they exist in you as well. Within yourself, you too have accumulated dead wood which is just waiting to be burned. All egotistical and passionate tendencies, all manifestations of your lower nature are like dead wood. Burn them in the fire of spirit, in the fire of divine love, and they too will produce light, heat and life. Fire shows us that there is matter to be burned everywhere. Take a closer look: in churches, candles are burned. If they only serve to give light, since...

Thought of the Day

You cannot escape or bypass divine laws. That is why it is useless to consult astrologers, as some do, to be warned of accidents or illnesses to which they will be exposed. Whatever you do, you cannot avoid anything: you cannot escape fate with tricks. The only thing you can do is work to reinforce yourself so as to better put up with the hardships when they arrive. Let’s say that your horoscope indicates that a serious disease is coming. Well, by leading a reasonable life, by purifying and reinforcing your body, you prepare the weapons to fight it off. You will not be able to avoid this disease, but the day it breaks out, you will be able to minimize its ravages. This law applies in every domain: the efforts you make to reinforce and purify yourself will always enable you to...

Thought of the Day

What is the difference between pride and vanity? Vanity shows itself kind and generous; it goes everywhere so that it may be seen, it does good so that it may be noticed, it is helpful so that it may be appreciated. But while others may benefit from it, it often tires out those who manifest it – physically, financially, and psychically. Pride, on the other hand, wants to be appreciated and respected without doing anything for anyone else. Satisfied with the good opinion they have of themselves, they do not go and parade themselves to the world, they want the world to come to them and discover them. And when they find that people neither respect them nor approve of them, that they are not seen as a superior being, they close up and become morose. With people who are vain there...

Word of the Day

Although a person may say, ‘I believe in God’, sometimes we can see no positive effects of this faith. How is it that God manifests in such a weak, useless and ineffectual way in this person? If God brings them so little, why should they bother to believe in him! We can then understand the position of atheists: when they see the poor results that faith produces in so many believers, they conclude that it is just as good to manage without God. What good is it to celebrate a God of justice and love, and to pray for the coming of his kingdom on earth if, at the same time, we consider it normal to continue to live in egoism, hate and conflict? In reality, divine law is inscribed within all human beings. But very few who have begun an inner work succeed in dissipating the darkness...
