Become as Little Children: Innocent with Wisdom and Conscious Knowledge

Thus said Jehovah, A voice of high lamentations is heard, wailing, weeping most bitter, Rachel is weeping for her children, She has refused to be comforted for them, because they are no more.” – Jeremiah 31: 15

Undoubtedly, we need to reflect a little on ourselves...

We have been told that we are the microcosm of the macrocosm, but (psychologically) we really live, let's say, in the lower parts of our five centers (we already know that we have five centers: the intellectual, the emotional, the motor, the instinctual and the sexual).

Unquestionably, this microcosm to which we belong is controlled by all our personal interests; For this reason, we do not even realize what planet Earth really is. We could say that we live in our own microcosm (small, infinitesimal cosmos), but because we find ourselves, let's say, completely trapped by the external senses, not even, I repeat, can we ensure that we really live on planet Earth.

We will live in our own particular microcosm, but not on planet Earth. Why? Because our mind, our feelings, our desires, our emotions, live within us, within our little world; petty interests control us, we have no time to think about anything other than our selfish interests, our passions, etc.

So, frankly, (psychologically) we don't really live on planet Earth (this seems paradoxical, but it's true). Who could boast of really knowing the planet we live on, which is a world with seven dimensions? Who knows it? We know that in the sea, especially in certain deep and isolated areas of the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, there are extraordinary phenomena, there are places where ships cannot advance (“dead waters”, they are called, for which there is no explanation) ...

If we strike a match with the purpose of attaining fire, it is obvious that with the friction fire arises; but before the strike, the fire was in the match, in a latent state; with the strike all we have achieved is to allow the fire to escape. However, people believe that before strike there was no fire in the match; then, if there was no fire, where did the fire come from? From nothing, nothing can come out. Thus, the fire exists before the match. And what is the nature of fire? About that nothing has been explained; scientists limit themselves to saying that "it is the outcome of combustion", that is, they escape on a tangent; such a concept is nothing more than a patch to cover up their ignorance...

The mechanics of phenomena are studied, but what is known about life? Scientists will be able to know all the mechanics of life, but what do they know about the vital depth? Nothing!...

A few months ago, a journalistic information spread around, the news said that human creatures can already be made in any laboratory. An absurd affirmation! Children made in a simple laboratory, “children made in incubators”! Have you heard anything more stupid? Nonetheless, why were they making so much noise? Well, simply because they had achieved to unite a male zoosperm, of course, with a female gamete; that is, with an ovule, thus, once united, they placed within the female human organism in their respective place, and it is obvious that such place is the womb within which gestation is processed. But this is nothing new! This is the famous "artificial insemination" certainly, but they thought that they were already creating life. 

If we put the chemical materials needed in order to make a zoosperm and an ovule, and we ask the scientists to make a pair of male and female gametes, I am sure they will do it, but if we then ask them that after uniting such artificial gametes to deposit them in their corresponding place, inside the female body, so that a creature results from there or simply that they place it in a very special “incubator,” I am sure that a child will not come out of there...

On a certain occasion, an atheist materialist (enemy of the eternal living God) and a religious man were arguing; they discussed the topic of who came first, the chicken or the egg? Sure, one says it was the egg. Okay, it was the egg, and who laid the egg? It was the chicken. The other says what was the chicken... and where did the chicken come from? Well, from the egg... Total that is "the never ending story." Finally, a little impatiently, the priest said, "Could you make an egg, like God did?"

The materialist replied, "Yes, I can!"

"Do it!"

And he did it; just like a chicken egg, its white, its yolk, its shell, etc. Then the priest tells him, Well, since you made the egg, wonderful!; we are going to have a chick... Let's put the egg, then, in an incubator, so that the chicken comes out..."

"Accepted!" said the materialist.

And they put the egg in the incubator, but the chicken didn't come out...

This reminds us of Don Alfonso Herrera, a great Mexican sage, who managed to make a human cell, but it was always a dead cell, it never really had life and the cell was perfect: with its nucleus, its membrane, etc., etc., etc., but it was a cell that never had life (a dead cell, I repeat).

Thus, we live on a planet that we do not know, or better said, psychologically, we do not live on the planet, we live in our little world; each of us is conditioned by his own interests, passions, desires, concerns, etc., etc., etc. So, properly, we do not live on planet Earth...

We have been told that the internal senses exist, we do not deny it; obviously, there are more internal than external senses. The different schools have methods to develop powers, to develop the intimate senses, the internal senses, but in truth I tell you, my dear brothers and sisters, that if we want to develop the internal senses, we must begin by developing the sense of the observation of oneself, that is, the sense of self-observation. That sense is latent in each one of us, but it must be developed; development is only possible through practice; as we use that sense, it will develop by itself, and as we progress in self-observation, other senses will also become manifest, and finally, the day will come that through intimate self-observation we have thoroughly known ourselves fully and in all of the departments of the mind and heart, then the multiple inner senses that we possess will become manifest, will unfold beautifully. That is why we have been told: “nosce te ipsum” - “know thyself" and you will know the universe and the gods.

As we become more reflective, we are also understanding the lamentable state in which psychologically we find ourselves... Since people only live within their own little world that they carry within, and sadly, on the lowest floors of their human machine, it is clear that they do not understand things related to the cosmos or to the cosmoses, and they are not even interested in it, it is something that is beyond themselves. The only thing that interests people is petty matters, the full satisfaction of their vices, their passions, their vested interests, their worries and selfishness, money and more money, fornication, alcohol, etc. This is where humanity lives. Thus, when you talk to them about the seven cosmoses and you try to get people to start studying the laws and their principles, well, frankly, they don't feel much interest in this, because that is beyond themselves, it is not part of their petty concerns. That is the harsh reality of the facts.

We need to study gnosis deeply; This is what our books are for, that is what our lectures are for, etc.; but the simple reading of the books is not enough, we must go further, brothers and sisters ...

There is no doubt that in the beginning it is necessary to read the transcriptions or to hear our recordings, attend classes, take notes in your notebooks or notepads and learn that by heart; memory is the formative principle, but listen, memory is not everything. If we always entrusted everything to memory, in the long run it would be of no use to us, because memory is one hundred percent unfaithful; what is committed to memory sooner or later is lost. Obviously, if we really want to take advantage of these teachings, it is necessary to deposit this knowledge in the consciousness. In the beginning I do not deny that we need the formative faculty, that is, memory, but knowledge should not stop there.

When through meditation we try to know the intimate significance of what we have deposited in our memory, then such knowledge deposited there passes to the higher parts of the intellectual center, and if we try to be more aware of these teachings, it will finally happen that said knowledge will definitely be absorbed by the emotional center, which is no longer intellectual. Thus, we must distinguish between the emotional center and the intellectual center.

When knowledge has become emotional, when it has been deposited in the emotional center, and it is finally absorbed in the essence, that is, in consciousness, and the knowledge that becomes cognizance is never lost, not even with the death of the physical body. Therefore, when we return, we bring that knowledge into our consciousness. But what is deposited exclusively in the memory sooner or later is lost. For this reason, my dear brothers and sisters, it is advisable that knowledge be deposited in the consciousness. ..

I repeat, first you have to study; then, deposit all the information in the formative center (memory); then we try to capture, to apprehend the intimate significance of that which we have deposited in our memory. When we do it, we feel from that knowledge something we would say sentimental or emotive or emotional to be clearer, because then such knowledge passes to the emotional part of the intellectual center, that is, it leaves the memory and passes to the emotional part of the intellectual center. Thus, if we insist on trying to apprehend or to capture the essence of such knowledge, it will become emotion, vivid emotion, it will pass, let us say, to the emotional center, and new meditations will make it become cognizant; this will happen when such emotional knowledge is finally submerged within the essence, within the cognizance. Such is therefore the process through which knowledge has to pass, in order for it to become cognizant...

Ordinary people live trapped by their external senses; however, there are people who already have established, in themselves, a permanent center of gravity; they are those people who in previous lives were in these studies. Those people will look for the teaching, they will yearn for it, they will feel that beyond the world of the external senses there is something else, and they are not wrong.

Far beyond these senses, through which we get in touch with the outside world, we find the essence. There is no doubt that those people who have a permanent center of gravity do really long for something distinct, different. Despite all the contingencies of existence, I understand that their essence remains unchanged; that has not been, we would say, deteriorated or altered.

Thus, in the essence is the best that we possess; the essence is the cognizance, it is the most decent, the most worthy of our Being...

There are two currents of thought in each one of us: one comes from the personality, the other comes from the essence. We can also say that the thoughts that come from the cultivated personality, well, appear more brilliant, although of substantial content, but deep down the thoughts that come from the essence are of a superior type; nonetheless, good observation skills are needed in order to distinguish one from another.

It so happens that since the thoughts of the essence are simpler and those of the personality more complicated, we could therefore get confused and believe that the thoughts of the personality are of a superior quality to those of the essence; but such confusion is based especially on ignorance. The thoughts of the essence, even if they are not very erudite, even if they are very simple, they are unquestionably of a superior quality...

When someone begins in life by worrying a little about their psychological situation in existence, when one realizes that one is nothing more than an inhabitant of the Earth, extremely small; when one thinks that the Earth is a piece of the Sun, a slice detached from the Sun or a particle of the Sun; that concept is undoubtedly indicating to us that such essence is, let us say, agitated, and becomes an essence that longs, that yearns; thus, such an essence has something of a superior type.

Obviously, these kind of thoughts, although very simple to the people who live in their small and tiny little worlds (that of the microcosm, that is, people who live within their infinitesimal world of their ordinary senses) do not have the least importance. Such people would then not feel the desire to know if the Earth is a piece of the Sun and if the Sun belongs to the milky way, unless their essence came out, let us say, with such a concern or such a longing; so, it is the essence that has these quality of thoughts, simple but grandiose in their depth.

Thus, it is necessary that the brothers and sisters comprehend that the most important thing we have inside us is the essence, that is, the cognizance...

Many are those who worry about magical powers; I tell you that the awakened essence possesses, in itself, beautiful faculties. What we need is to develop the essence; and one could not develop it unless one worked on oneself. When we really care about eliminating our psychological defects from our intimate nature, namely, anger, greed, lust, envy, pride, laziness, gluttony, etc., etc., etc., the essence naturally begins to develop wonderfully.

Normally the essence is bottled up, as I have said so many times, among those multiple "inhuman elements" that we carry within (I am referring to our psychological defects).

As we disintegrate or pulverize such "elements", the essence is unbottled, unembedded, emancipated, and when we have achieved the total annihilation of all the "undesirable elements" that we carry within, then the essence will be absolutely free, fully awake, with precious spontaneity in this world of manifestation.

To the extent, then, that we annihilate the ego, that is, the "I" of psychology, the "myself", the essence will be liberated. With the radical death of the “I”, of the “myself”, of the “oneself”, the essence will remain absolutely free, and a free essence, manifesting itself through a human body, through a brain (or three brains, because, really, we not only have the intellectual brain, but we also have the emotional brain and the motor-instinctual-sexual brain), It will be a naturally precious essence, and the powers of clairvoyance, clairaudience, telepathy, the faculties for astral projection and many other internal senses that would be too long to enumerate will shine in it...

Thus, the path to attain powers is through death; for something we have been told: "if the germ does not die, the plant is not born"... When we die in ourselves, when this "dear ego" that we carry inside is turn to dust, the powers emerge because the essence arises (free essence arises); the free essence enjoys many faculties, precious senses, amazing capacities.

There are also multiple organizations; various organizations, schools, etc., to develop chakras, to achieve magical powers; some of these institutions definitely teach practices that we could describe as “dark”. We can truly affirm, my dear brothers and sisters, that if we were only concerned with developing powers and did not annihilate the "myself", the "ego", the "I" of psychology, the most that could happen is that we become black magicians... The sacred scriptures have spoken very clearly; Jesus in the gospel has said:

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” – Matthew 6: 33

You see how beautiful a newborn child is; through the child (in the child) the only thing that is expressed is the essence (but I repeat, I speak of a newborn child). Those who think that a newborn child is in a state of unconsciousness, asleep, are profoundly mistaken. A newborn child looks at you with pity, he is more awake than you. If you think that he is not aware of your life, you are perfectly wrong; not only realizes the way you live, but what is worse, the horrors you carry inside; and that is the saddest thing.

I don't want to tell you that one hundred percent of the essence is expressed in a newborn child; no, obviously, in the creature that has come, within the essence that has returned to existence (that has been reincorporated, I mean, in a new human organism), only a minimum fraction of the essence is expressed, but that minimum free fraction (which can be expressed because it is free in the child), unquestionably it is also awake and self-cognizant. It is a pity that the totality of the essence could not be expressed; it practically expresses itself in a newborn child, around 3% of the essence, but that 3% is free, self-awakened and cognizant; therefore, it has many intimate senses in full activity.

Obviously, as time goes by, everything changes; the child falls asleep especially due to the elders; the child begins to imitate his elders' gestures, their lower emotions, etc., until the child also ends up asleep, doing the same...

Since the "I" is multiple, any truly enlightened person who intends to observe a newborn child will be able to see the following: the child in his cradle, awake; a minimum fraction of essence that is the one that expresses itself, will be completely self-cognizant, awake; but it is also seen around the cradle, creatures that try to manifest themselves, different egos, different "I's", some with beautiful forms, others with horrifying forms that come and go, enter and leave, inside that bedroom where the child sleeps, that they turn their crib, etc. They are the “I's” that wait to express themselves; The rest of the essence is distributed within these “I's”, that is, 97% of the essence that is embedded, let's say, within each one of those “I's” (within an “I” is embedded a certain amount of essence, within another “I”, another quantity, etc.). And those multiple “I's” go around the cradle, they would like to express themselves, to manifest themselves, thus, they try to get inside the little body of the child, but they cannot. But it so happens that as time passes, the infant's new personality is being formed, and is formed with the example of the elders, with the school, etc.; so as the new personality is being formed, the "I's" are also having the opportunity to express themselves after the frontal fontanelle of newborns closes (you have perfectly observed in children that the superior parietal of children it is slightly open; it is something they call "the fontanel"; we say, technically, the frontal fontanelle of newborns).

As long as it is open, everything goes well, but as that frontal fontanel closes, the personality also develops and the capacity for the "I's" to begin to intervene becomes greater and greater; then certain manifestations of anger begins to be seen in children (especially around the ages of three and four), they begin to become irascible and little by little the “I's” are having the opportunity to express themselves, until they finally all manifest themselves. It is interesting to observe newborn children...

How good –I say– if the essence was not bottled up, stuck within all the “I's”; how good it would be if the child grew up without any “I” getting inside him, if the totality of his essence was in him throughout his life; then all the five cylinders of the human machine: intellect, emotion, movement, instinct and sex, would be under the control of the essence and would march in harmony with the infinite! Unfortunately, 97% of the essence is bottled up among those various "elements" that constitute the ego, the "I"...  

We need to develop the essence, to unbottle it, to unembed it; when we achieve it, multiple divine, natural powers will express themselves in us with all their beauty and with all their power. We do not need, therefore, to "struggle" to obtain powers, what we must "struggle" is to die in ourselves, here and now, because "only with death comes the new"...

Observe the life of the great Christian mystics: they did not worry about obtaining powers, they only worried about holiness, about eliminating each one of their psychological defects, about dying in themselves, and as they achieved it, multiple supernormal faculties expressed themselves through them. These were always known as "saints" and there are many of them from the most diverse origins, whether from the East or the West. Therefore, holiness is the most important thing, my dear brothers and sisters ...

Thus, this is the end of my lecture. If someone has something to ask, they can do it with the most complete freedom.

Questions and Answers

Student: Master, you have explained to us the process through which knowledge must pass in order for it to become cognizant. My question is: is the nature of truth emotional or instinctual?

Samael Aun Weor: The truth is something that cannot be defined, because if it is defined it is disfigured. But we can say that the steps for knowledge to become cognizant are outlined in the following way: first one studies so that the knowledge is deposited in the memory. Second step, one meditates with the intention of apprehending the deep significance of the knowledge deposited in the memory; when that happens, knowledge (through meditation) passes to the emotional part of the intellectual center. This needs a further explanation ...

The intellectual center has three parts: the higher intellectual part, the emotional part and the motor part. We would say that knowledge passes to the emotional part of the intellectual center; then we begin to feel a certain flavor to what we have deposited in our memory. Then, in a more advanced stage of meditation, that knowledge definitively leaves the intellectual center, in order to be deposited strictly within our emotional center and later, through the technique of meditation, we achieve that such knowledge finally passes from the emotional center into the essence. In the essence, then, such knowledge is deposited, that is, the truth or truths that we can take to the essence; to speak more clearly, they have a rather emotional flavor (listen, I am not talking about lower emotions, but about emotions of a superior type).

The superior emotion allows any truth to pass to the essence, where it comes to be deposited; but the cold analytical intellect of an Aristotle, for example, is completely lame, it would never allow knowledge to become cognizant it would remain strictly deposited in our memory and that is all... That is why, let us say, among the Aristotelian systems (which is pure and cold subjective reasoning) and the platonic or porphyritic systems (from Porphyry), I prefer Plato. Neoplatonic methods or the schools of Iamblichus and Porphyry are emotional and allow knowledge to be brought to the cognizance, that is, they allow knowledge to become cognizant, something that would never be achieved with the cold Aristotelian reasoning; that's all!... are there any other questions?

Student: Venerable master, in what way could we ensure that children, as their new personality is being formed, do not let themselves be trapped by their "I's"?

Samael Aun Weor: Well, the truth is what it is (verbum est codex)... Obviously, then, in a newborn child there is the essence, a minimum fraction, which is what is expressed through him; that is why it is beautiful, we could say, and sublime. Unfortunately, and it is the worst, sooner or later (especially after the frontal fontanel of newborns closes), the "I's," (because they are undissolved), begin to express themselves, because they manage to get inside the little body ...

If we could guide children from infancy, we should truly teach them the path of gnosis, show them what the ego is, etc. But this requires already; this would already be, let's say, a separate chapter, it would be a matter for another lecture, and it would be very long to talk about the education of children; I only limit myself to saying that as long as the “I's” exist, they will have to express themselves.

What is desirable is that we disintegrate the “I's” so that the essence remains free. Upon returning, upon recurring, upon rejoining in a new vehicle, we would then come fully awake and firmly continue along the "path of the razor's edge," we would be different.

Unfortunately, when we rejoin, sooner or later the "I's" begin to manifest, and when they really begin to enter the body, to express themselves through us, obviously, we lose that beauty, typical of the newborn... This is why Jesus Christ said:

“Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.” – Matthew 18: 3

We need to regain innocence in our mind and heart. Many believe that innocence makes one weaker, dumber; that anyone can miserably exploit him, that since he is innocent, everyone “rides him”. But that is a false concept emitted by the ego, because the ego believes himself that he is strong, omnipotent and powerful, but he really is not, but he believes that he is very strong... The truth is that when one disintegrates the ego, it creates innocence but with wisdom, because the disintegration of each "element" gives us sapience ...

Take a look, let's say, at what the process of anger is. How many are the situations of anger? Multiple, right? There may be anger due to an attack of jealousy, there may be anger because we feel cheated, there could be anger due to self-esteem, because someone hurt our self-esteem, etc. Well, studying anger is very interesting: how was anger processed? Why such an angry situation? How did it break out? So it is that, when we dissolve some "I" of anger, it is because we have previously comprehended it, and in this "having comprehended it" we have acquired a formidable, unique wisdom...

If you want the bread of wisdom, you have to comprehend each one of the "undesirable elements" that you are going to disintegrate, and as you comprehend them, you will acquire wisdom. To that end, when one disintegrates the totality of the ego; that has liberated the totality of the essence, then one remains innocent but with wisdom, and that wisdom, that sapience, protects one because it allows one to know not only the good and the bad, but the bad from the good and the good from the bad.

Student: Master, is it true that the egos, as they dissolve, become smaller and smaller, more and more "shorties", and that they leave their horrendous shape, they become beautiful, so to speak?

Samael Aun Weor: That's how it is! The 'I's have various forms. There are monstrous “I's” that seem like true horrifying beasts; any clairvoyant who observes them is horrified... You have seen that newborn children are usually frightened, that they suddenly end up screaming for no reason. Well, it is because they see certain of their own "I's" that pass near the cradle, and this causes them fear. If that happens to newborn children, imagine what happen to the people who live in the abyss? They have before their eyes their own “I’s”, thus, they suffer unspeakable fears and horrors. But, as one goes, here in the world, dissolving the “I's”, these egos become smaller. 

Suppose we want to dissolve an "I" of envy; at first it will be a horrendous monster, but as we work on it, and it loses volume, it becomes smaller and more beautiful; finally it takes the form of a child and the child gets smaller and smaller, until finally it disintegrates, already converted into cosmic dust. Until what Jesus Christ said is fulfilled:

“Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.” – Matthew 18: 3

Thus, we need to disintegrate all the "I's" so that the essence remains free and express in us with all its beauty, with all that naturalness, with all that spontaneity...

I have already told you that we have more internal than external senses, and that we must begin by using, developing that sense of self-observation; as we use it, other internal senses are also developing, that's obvious... So, my dear brothers and sisters, we need to work intensely on ourselves. Do any other brother or sister want to ask?

Student: You were telling us, venerable master, that some people have a permanent center of gravity established within themselves and that their essences remain immutable, that this has not been deteriorated or altered. Does this refer to the essence of fallen masters, the bodhisattvas?

Samael Aun Weor: Well, the permanent center of gravity is in every person who in previous lives, who in their previous existences was in this kind of study, an essence who worked on himself before. Such people form their center of gravity, some will have a strong center of gravity, and others less strong. When someone has a specific center of gravity, because he has worked in previous lives, unquestionably when he returns to the world, all the elements he needs for his advancement come to that person: books, instructors, etc.; everything returns to him, that's all...

Student: Master, all of us who have dealt with young children know very well that sometimes certain expressions of disgust occur in them, of what we call "tantrums". Could such manifestations be considered as expressions of their pluralized “I” or of some specific “I”?

Samael Aun Weor: That's how it is! Already those "I's" express themselves freely, and as the child grows, the opportunity or opportunities for the expression of the various "I's" are greater and greater, until finally, all of the "I’s" are definitively expressed in one pluralized “I” and that is what makes us ugly, horrible. If only the essence were expressed through us, we would enjoy the beauty of God; from such beauty emanates, in turn, that which is called "love"...   

Why is there so much confusion in the world? You see that the "humanoids" do not understand each other. I am going to give you a specific case. A lady, suddenly, for example, decides to serve a gentleman because she “likes how he behaves,” because he “is very courteous with her” very nice, etc. So, she is serving him selflessly; she, such a lady, does not have, let us say, the slightness thought of lust, she is not in love with that gentleman, to her, he seems only a good person, thus, she cares about attending him with these or those good manners, etc. But what happens? The gentleman has an ego of lust and such ego controls the five cylinders of the human machine. As the ego controls those five cylinders of the human machine, well, then he interprets as he pleases those good manners of the lady; and instead of passing, let's say, to the emotional center, it passes them to another cylinder: to the instinctual-sexual center, and then lust arises in that gentleman. The gentleman’s mind, of course, comes to be controlled by sex, as always has been seen, and the gentleman thinks: "that lady is in love with me, possibly she lusts after me"... Sometime later he begins to make sexual proposals to her; The lady is surprised and says: "Impossible, I was serving this gentleman disinterestedly, but this man has misunderstood my good conducts, my good manners"... Yes, he has misunderstood them. Why has he misunderstood them? Because he has an ego of lust and such ego controled the five cylinders of his human machine; but if that gentleman had no such ego, if it were only essence that controlled the five cylinders of his human machine, that lady's attentions would pass to the emotional center and it would express itself with pure pleasure and true beauty; they would not have, then, misunderstandings...

And the example I give, in this sense, can be extended to many other senses. We say a word, and someone misunderstood it. Why did they get it wrong? Because one didn't interpret it with the corresponding center, one interpreted it with a center that didn't correspond. We emit an intellectual concept, for example, and it may be that the emotional center (not the superior one, but the inferior one) receives that intellectual concept and misinterprets it, thinks that self-love is being hurt, that this individual with that concept has launched an irony, in such a way that he reacts with it.

Total, we do not understand each other. Why? Because of the ego, because our ego is a true "tower of babel". And therefore, we human beings will not be able to understand each other on the face of the Earth.

As long as there is an ego, there will be wars and rumors of war, there will be strikes, there will be violence, hatred, etc., etc., etc., as long as we don't dissolve the ego... The ego has made us all horrible, we don't enjoy true beauty; because of that, because we have the ego, we are ugly, terrifyingly ugly...

If you can see how beautiful the essences free from the ego are; one is filled with ecstasy, for example when with his higher faculties one enters a garden and sees the innocent "elementals" of the flowers devoid of ego; the "elementals" of the trees, like children full of beauty, devoid of ego (they have no ego, there are no problems between them, they live in a true paradise, the elemental paradises of nature, and they enjoy precious faculties, the free faculties of the essence)...

So, brothers and sisters, as long as we are as we are, it will be impossible for us to enjoy true happiness, but the day we achieve innocence, the day we die within ourselves, we will be able to converse wonderfully with the innocent creatures of all this creation and live with them in the paradises, in the various elemental paradises. but not with ego! Thus, with ego, the princes of fire, air, water and Earth close their doors on us... because we are horrible monsters!

When I am in meditation, brothers and sisters, and suddenly someone comes to visit me, I realize it because the horrible, sinister vibrations of the visitor reach me; I realize that whoever comes, brings ego. What could I compare someone to, someone who has an ego? Not Frankenstein, because Frankenstein is a fiction that has no scientific value... then to whom? To Count Dracula! Indeed, that is the kind of vibe that any person with ego carries within. Now you will comprehend why the creatures of the elements are horrified when they see someone who has ego, they run away in terror... do you understand me?

Well, that's the end of the lecture, my dear brothers and sisters.
