Its foundation: to serve god in ourselves

July 24th 2011
Those who place themselves in the service of God do not serve a being outside of themselves, and so it is impossible for them to lose their freedom; on the contrary, they win it. That is the foundation of religion. So long as humans do not attempt to find God and serve him in themselves, they will have an incomplete, distorted concept and image of him. And it is natural that the idea of placing themselves in the service of a power they cannot locate or that may not even exist is to some intolerable. Serving God… The idea will only be correctly understood and accepted if human beings realize that the Divinity they must serve lives in their soul. The more they dedicate themselves to it, the closer they move towards it and the greater their communication with it. Their work enables them to dissolve the dross that their thoughts, feelings and lower desires have accumulated within them. And so they gradually discover the quintessence of their being, which is the very quintessence of God.
