Unattainable ideal, an

Always helps us to progress

December 26th 2019
Place within your head, your heart and your soul, a sublime ideal, an ideal that you may never attain. And do not think that the pursuit of such an ideal is discouraging. On the contrary. Observe yourselves: how do you feel when you get what you want? For a moment you are satisfied, but then what? As soon as you no longer have to make an effort to reach a new goal, you lose your drive and sometimes, even, your taste for life. So, set yourselves a goal that you will never reach and you will always remain alert, active, and enthusiastic. Human beings have infinite possibilities in their thoughts and desires; they have no limits in the world of the soul and the spirit. If they feel limited, it is because they have limited themselves. You must therefore be able to nourish an unattainable ideal consciously: little by little, you feel that thanks to your desires and your thoughts, you are able to rise very high in space; there, you touch beings and elements in exact correspondence with these desires and thoughts, and you draw them to you, you nourish yourselves with them.
