Accepted with love produces a perfume
June 29th 2017
Suffering gives human beings an opportunity to enter into themselves to think, meditate and attract superior beings who will guide and help them. There is no greater science than to know how to suffer. Someone who knows how to suffer gives off the perfume of flowers. Distilling and exhaling perfume is the science of flowers. Because they have learned to withstand bad weather and survive in spite of all the dangers that threaten them, flowers give off an exquisite scent, and we love them for it. But what fragrance is given off by those who scream and protest at the slightest pain or annoyance? Only one who has learned to accept their suffering distils this perfume. An initiate suffers when they have taken the burdens and sins of human beings upon themself, as Jesus did. This suffering that has been consented to with love, produces the most exquisite scent; and angels come to delight in its presence, just as we too rejoice over a blossoming tree in a garden.
