‘In the hour preceding sunrise, just before when the angels of the earthly mother awake the earth still asleep, you will enter in the great sacred current of life. It is your brother the tree that holds the mystery of this sacred current, and it is him that you will embrace in thoughts; like you would embrace him to greet him, during the day, when you are out walking. And you will be one with this tree, as for at the beginning of time, we blended all into the sacred current of life that gave birth to the creation. While you will embrace your brother the tree, the sacred current of life will spread into all your body and its might will make you tremble. You will inspire then deeply the angel of the air and will pronounce the word life while expiring. You will become the tree of life that plunges its roots in the heart of the sacred current of life. And when the angel of the sun will warm up nature and that all creatures on earth, in the water and in the air will awake joyfully to the new day, you will rejoice in your body and your spirit about the sacred current of life that flows from your brother the tree towards you.
When the sun will be high in the sky, you will seek the sacred current of sound, in the heat of noon, everything stands still, all creatures rest in the shadow and the angels of the earthly mother become silent. It is then that you will open your ears to the sacred current of sound, as it could only be heard in silence. Think of the streams that spring in the desert after a violent storm and of the roaring of the waters. It is the voice of God, but you didn’t know. Because, it is written: At the beginning was the sound and the sound was with God. In truth I say to you, when we are born, we enter the world with the sound of God present to our ears, together with the song of the vast choir of heaven and the holy melody of the stars in their perennial course. It is the sacred current of the sound that crosses the celestial dome and the infinite kingdom of the heavenly father. It reaches us always, but we don’t hear it anymore. Therefore, at noon, in the silence, bend your ear and submerge yourself in the sound and allow the rhythm of God’s music beat in you until you become one with the sacred current of the sound. The sound created the world, erected the mountains and fixed the stars unto their throne of glory, way up in the sky. You will bathe in the current of the sound and the music of its waters will wrap you up. Its roaring will echo in all your body and its might will make you tremble. You will then inspire deeply the angel of the air and become the sound itself. Carried by this sacred current, you will reach the infinite kingdom of the heavenly father, where beats the rhythm of the world.
And finally, when darkness will gently close the eyes of the angels of the earthly mother, you will sleep also so that your spirit rejoins the unknown angels of the heavenly father. In the moment that precedes sleep, you will think of the bright stars, glorious, sparkling and far away. Because your thoughts at that exact moment are the bow of the archer that sends his agile arrow where he desires. At that moment, direct your thoughts towards the stars, because they are light. Penetrate in the sacred current of light, so that the chains of death lose forever their power on you. And unbound from the ties of the earth, ascend the sacred current of light, among the stars, until the infinite kingdom of the heavenly father.
Deploy your wings of light and, in spirit, soar with the stars, towards the most remote regions of the heaven where unknown suns shine. Because, at the beginning of time the holy Law said: Let there be light, and the light became. And you will become one with it, as its sacred current spreads in all your body and its might will make you tremble. You will then pronounce the word light while inspiring deeply the angel of the air and you will become one with the light itself; as it will carry you towards the infinite kingdom of the heavenly father, where he is blended in the cosmic sea of the light, cradle of all the creation. You will sleep in the arms of the heavenly father only when you have become one with the sacred current of light.
In truth I tell you, your body was not created only to breathe, eat and think, but also to penetrate the sacred current of life. Your ears were not created only to listen to the words of humans, the song of the birds and the music of the rain, but also to hear the sacred current of sound. Your eyes were not created only to show you the rising and setting of the sun, the golden waves of the wheat crops and the teaching of the holy manuscripts, but also to see the sacred current of light. One day, your body, your eyes, your ears will return to the earthly mother, but the sacred currents of life, of sound and of light are eternal and will not perish. Penetrate into the sacred currents, into this life, this sound and that light that gave you birth. Alike the river that reaches the far-away sea, rejoin the kingdom of the heavenly father and become one with him.
It is not possible to tell you more. The sacred currents will lead you where there is no words any more, in a place where even the holy manuscripts cannot record the mysteries.’
