The Wellsprings of Eternal Joy Love and Sexuality Parts 1 and 2
This is the full text:
Sometimes you meet a being to whom you feel immediately attracted. This person is like a vase filled with a precious essence that plunges you into a state of wonder. They inspire you, broaden your horizons and reveal the beauty of heaven and earth to you. Thank the Lord for having met this person, and if you want your joy to last for a long time, try to keep some distance. Why? Because the space between two people only appears to be empty. In reality, it is filled with subtle essences which are the best conductors of psychic energy. It is this space that makes exchanges of harmony and light possible.
While there is a certain distance between you and the person you love, you can exchange energy. Thanks to this exchange you energise each other. Each time you meet, you will leave each other fulfilled, pervaded by an extraordinary happiness. This is because distance creates the best conditions for communication between you. You will discover that a look, a moment of silence, a smile through which the soul expresses itself, is more precious than any physical form of expression or gift. If you really take this advice on board and try to apply it, your life will never be short of happy encounters. And because you will know how to appreciate them, you will truly know what love is…
One day, a young man came to visit me: he told me he was engaged to be married, he loved his fiancée and he was sure that she loved him back. But in spite of that he still asked himself certain questions. He told me, ‘When I gaze into my fiancée’s eyes, I don’t really know who I’m looking at, and I don’t know who it is in me that’s looking at her either.’
I was astonished by the subtlety of this remark, for it is true, the identity of beings is a great mystery. What are the entities that live inside us and what are those that inhabit our friends, our family and all those around us? We do not know. For, in reality, each person is a dwelling place inhabited successively by spirits of differing natures. And therefore it is fundamentally impossible to know exactly who you have in front of you.
I said to the young man, ‘This is what I can tell you: The young girl you love is inhabited by invisible beings who are the cause of what you love in her. So pray that God does not allow these benevolent entities to leave her and leave you, for if that happens you will lose your love. Pray also that the entities living in yourself – which are what make her love you – never leave you either.’ I sensed he was listening to me very attentively and he left in a very thoughtful mood.
Try to understand that it is heaven that places souls on your path. Love is an exchange between two currents of energy, between two opposite but complementary poles. It isn’t the physical body that inspires love; this often comes into play only as an outcome, at the end of the process; it merely follows on. Love is inspired by something invisible. People attach far more importance to the body than it really deserves. People die, but their souls, which are alive, continue to meet. It is people’s inner life that creates attraction or repulsion. Before their bodies are attracted to each other, there are fluidic exchanges that lead them to approach each other. Their bodies simply follow this movement at the end of the process.
Of course, the first thing people notice in others is their outward appearance, their physical aspect, their profession or social position. But these assets don’t impress people for long unless they sense that behind these externals there is something subtle and alive that corresponds to what they need in the deepest part of themselves. So, if you want to find real love, work on yourself.
Create something within that is pure, luminous, poetic and musical. You will attract men and women who are also looking for purity, light, poetry and music.
Never forget that it is here, in these subtle vibrations, in these currents of energy, that you will find what is essential.
