Life

If all goes well, this will grow into a persimmon tree and bear fruit.

Already I enjoy the marvel that is its germination.

Spiritual Life is Part of our True Nature

“Life, which begins in the depths within, is explained by the silent living of a totally different experience: the awakening of spiritual life which must be born from the animal life we have on Earth, but sooner or later must go beyond it.  When the dependence on the senses takes its distance, the pleasures of daily life remain legitimate, but lose their weight.  Nothing that we learn about material life can replace learning about spiritual life through penitence; the two must go together.  That is very difficult to understand and above all, to share, but it is our mission that it be understood.  This mission does not rest upon ideas, but on the deep metaphysical to be awakened in the depths of one’s being.  The Word, in effect, does not teach us anything that the human being does not already know.  The Ten Commandments are in the Bible, but who did not already know for centuries, well before the Bible was written, that one should respect their parents, not steal, not lie, not kill, etc.  Man knew all of that already, since within him is the image and likeness of the Father.  It is in this capacity that mankind must become spiritual again.  An ideology is always materialistic and in this capacity only convinces those who are convinced; spiritual life makes us escape from this rough bond and brings us back to Life.”
