The dreamy state of uncorrupted youth bears witness to
the yearning of the newly awakened spirit to free itself from all evil,
from all the impurities that surround it,…
Let us recognize, respect, and favor this immaculate beginning
of a pure flight to the heights.
“There is a light in this world, a healing spirit
more powerful than any darkness we may encounter.
We sometimes lose sight of this force when there is suffering, too much pain.
Then suddenly, the spirit will emerge through the lives of ordinary people
who hear a call and answer in extraordinary ways.”
THE WAY, THE TRUTH, THE LIFE
Three words quite familiar to Christians, regardless of religious organization or sect they belong to. For, in listening to these words, they instantly remind Christians of the known sentences of Jesus, recorded in the Gospel of John:
“I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (Jo14:6)
And then they keep in their hearts the most immediate interpretation of those words, which is that only the followers of Christianity will be able to reach Heaven.
And, naturally, that the members of their own Christian institution are the ones who will reach it more safely.
Such is a thought not much different from the one cherished by the Pharisees at the time of Jesus…
However, these meaningful words of the Son of God are much deeper than they seem at first sight…….”
“Age has no reality except in the physical world.
The essence of a human being is resistant
to the passage of time. Our inner lives are eternal,
which is to say that our spirits remain as youthful
and vigorous as when we were in full bloom.
Think of love as a state of grace,
not the means to anything, but the alpha and omega.
An end in itself.”
