…“The Revelation of Arès clears a Way—composed of billions of paths—which ditches illusions, the illusory “solutions” of religions. The mentality of The Revelation of Arès is not easy to grasp in a world crushed under the master-idea of religion which one finds even in politics, organized like religion, in science similarly organized, etc., and that makes the harvest arduous, especially at the beginning midst enormous forests of scrub growth. The Revelation of Arès pursues a single goal: to remove mankind from sin, but not to instill a new doctrine, new dogma, new laws, new rituals, new taboos, etc. It is not what one believes nor what one forbids oneself, but the good that one does which counts; simultaneously results Good reinstalled and the soul, related to the great Creative Soul. Faith in God or faith in Life is evident, but not obligatory; the soul is created from love, not from faith in God; evil—the Beast—does not need to be fought, Good by growing will make it disappear. Prayer is free, mankind is totally free, etc. The world is not ready to recognize this Truth at first sight and first sound of a voice. A slow job of education will be necessary. The extreme simplicity of the Way which God shows in Arès is only recognized by those, still rare, we call ripe heads of grain.
The Arès Pilgrim is not a skeptic, but a person who knows he does not need to know much in order to follow the Straight Path; penitence and harvest, which puts the Aresian faith within reach of all. The Arès Pilgrim wisely imposes upon himself an extreme reduction of spiritual knowledge and can thus better consecrate himself to the intense little which is the key to personal and universal salvation. Intensity, not quantity, is Power, Light, Sanctity…”
…“what makes the grandeur, the incomparable nobility of mankind, is to do Good when one has the possibility of doing Evil…”

“…humanity’s angelity, its be-all end-all, its quintessence, its treasure; it is, beyond all possible organization or solitude, the ensemble, of which the members may know each other or more often, not know each other, of all those who love their neighbour, that is to say everyone, and who love without thinking– Don’t think about it! Love! –because if you think about it, you will find “valid” reasons not to love certain persons–, of all those who forgive offenses—Don’t think about it! Forgive! Everything, otherwise you leave open a passageway towards never-ending revenge!–, of all those who make peace—Don’t think about it! Make peace! With everyone!–,of all those who have intelligence of the heart—Here don’t think too much, otherwise you will always find reasons to give preference to intellectual intelligence… Here we are in the heart of measure!–, and of all those who free themselves from all prejudice, who break the chains of habitual thinking and judging, the chains of preconception, partiality, preconceived notions, taking sides. The Assembly is this loving humanity, without a name, no address, no telephone, no publicity, that never dies for it is made of souls and all those souls together make up the polone.” 18déc20 225C34 Réponse
“Spiritual intelligence will probably be something longer to acquire than love, because love is still more or less present in novels, songs, films, the theater, charity, etc., even if not in the absolute evangelical state that the Father expects us to give to the world, whereas the intelligence of the heart free from all prejudice almost no longer exists in the world where morals, rules, laws, “rights”, have falsified it everywhere, except for a few individuals (the gander RA xxxvi/3) who certainly left a good souvenir, but not the least practical trace… at least not to my knowledge.
Where is the intelligence in executing a murderer by hanging or beheading or by injecting a deadly fluid? What in that way makes Evil retreat? Nothing. It is nothing more than an intelligence of revenge (RA 27/9). Spiritual intelligence begins with the wisdom which says that any evil person can change, can be recuperated and that, in any case, one must bring to every human brother a part of oneself and in particular, to love them, because not he alone is sin-sick, but the whole of humanity.” 19déc20 225C40 Réponse

Here are some excerpts from replies to comments on the blog entry 177 by Michel Potay.
“…Politics and its mother religion want to be done with problems of conscience, but we on the contrary force ourselves to awaken this conscience. I even heard a person I encountered while seeking penitents say that intelligence was going extinct and should be replaced with instinct. ‘What instinct’, I asked. ‘The animal instinct of course’, they replied. ‘No’, I said, ‘we are not animals, but men with a conscience. No animal has a conscience. They live in a universe of signals. We live as Children of God, that is to say intelligent, and we can reawaken this conscience as one stirs up a fire.’”

“I believe that nothing is possible on the level of society as long as we have not succeeded in spreading the idea that first man must personally change his life (RA 30/10-11).”

“…Our penitence is anarkhia, since it rejects the power of evil in all of its forms. We shall soon engage in the hardest striving for Good within us, around us, on Earth. Politics seeks a cohesion of the masses under the law, police, courts of justice, but we work towards renewing the value of individuality and liberty—two of the five gifts God gave Adam, creating his spiritual nature: love, speech, creativity, liberty and individuality—and thus we must literally re-create the world and re-create ourselves…”

…Yes, « the world will change in the assembly or will not change ». In our assembly, the loop will be joined, that is to say that the process of penitence will have caused Evil to disappear and will have installed Good. We have created and begun our assembly with The Revelation of Arès as a starting point which encourages us to refuse the hypocrisy, conscious or very often unconscious, of the religious Jews, Christians, Muslims or others, who while believing they are combating Evil, often without realising it, exercise a form of Evil which is paralysis, a mummification of faith. Faith is Life. To immobilize it by wrapping it in the bandages of dogma is Evil, that is to say, something which inhibits the march towards Life.
In the assembly we localized the first cause of Evil which is fear of one another which must be replaced by love of one another. Was not barbarism born from the fear of one another? One destroys the other, be it physically or intellectually, one destroys all that he does out of fear of him and what he does, one wants to remain as one is, without evolving, because one is fine, just like those with a toothache fear the dentist and prefer to stay home, feeling better with their pain than they would feel under the dentist’s drill. We have installed the dentist’s drill, penitence. In that way we are really combating Evil, beginning with the Evil within; we are not satisfied with believing, we act, we do. Thus we strive, as does The Revelation of Arès, “to lead men to discover that love, reason, conscience and action in liberty, tools given to men from God’s very own Hand, will re-create the planet.” Since most men do not understand because their minds are lacking the door through which action upon themselves might pass, the action of change, we strive for the moment to find those whose minds are not hermetically closed, those where that door exists, even if it is only a small louver window, those we call the ripe ears of grain.

“…our political era seeks to eliminate the private individual in order to install what I call a standard man, who has no personality, who lives according to social standards decided by those in power, no longer plays any role, is nothing more than a human machine with interchangeable functions. Those in power can dominate that man. Those in power cannot exercise their domination on men like us, men who rediscover their liberty, each one his own, each one the creator of himself, each one the image and likeness of the Creator…”

Link to the original blog entry 177 in English:
“ …I do not believe that those who listen to us are as many as that who perceive our discourse as ‘abstract and impracticable’, but rather that they feel—because millenniums of power and laws above them have rendered them passive, therefore instinctively lazy—that following politics and the law is a lot less tiring than the penitence of which we speak. In other words, people see comfort in politics and the law!…”
