Fire and light

On which we can feed at sunrise

April 5th 2011
When God created us, he gave us everything we need to feed our physical body, our heart, our mind, our soul and our spirit. So, why do so many people feel poor and wretched? Because they do not know how to take in these subtle elements. And how could they, anyway? They cannot see them or feel them, so how could they benefit from them? All they are able to do is complain: they don’t have this, they don’t have that… They have everything at their disposal, yet they remain in poverty, because they are blind, weak and lazy. They themselves set the limit: they are content just to eat, drink and breathe, that is to say, to feed on solid, liquid and gaseous elements, and they leave aside the fourth element – fire, light – the one they most need to foster their aliveness, joy and inspiration, the one that can bring them fulfilment. You will say, ‘But how can we feed on this fourth element; where do we find it?’ By watching the sunrise in the mornings. That is where we learn to eat fire and drink light.
