Guiding Light of The Month

Flowers speak… On Vital well-being


Light in the Vital Movements: This certainly means the beginning of wisdom.


First learn to know yourself perfectly and then to control yourself perfectly. You will be able to do it by aspiring at every moment. It is never too early to begin, never too late to continue.

Consent of the Vital: Friendly, smiling, always ready for action, with a great goodwill.

Keep a cheerful mind and a peaceful heart. Let nothing disturb your equanimity and make every day the necessary progress to advance with me steadily towards the goal

Correct Movements in the Vital: At once the cause and the result of conversion.

Control over the lower impulsions is the first step towards realisation.

Renunciation of desires: the essential condition for realisation.

***


Vital Endurance: Whatever the obstacles, we shall always go forward!

To know and be able to bear and endure, undoubtedly produces a firm and fixed joy.
