If the Egyptian initiates chose to build their sanctuaries in the shape of a pyramid it was because they wanted people to learn the lesson of unity from those lines reaching up to join together at the summit, reaching up towards the sun. The pyramid is a symbol of the hierarchy that exists in the universe. It can help us, in absolutely every area of life, to move out of the lower level of dispersion and onto the higher planes of unity. It is this progressively purer, unencumbered view of reality that makes us capable of acting divinely.
From the top of a mountain you have a circular view of the whole panorama, but as soon as you begin to descend towards the valley, part of it is hidden. Those who are on one side of the mountain see one aspect of the countryside and those on the other side see another, and finally, as none of them sees the same thing as each is persuaded that what he sees is the whole truth, they end by massacring each other.
But if you succeed in rising to the divine level, to the level of the spirit, you will discover that all human beings are brothers and sisters. At that level, you can understand and accept others and stop quarrelling.
Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov
