There was a King from a faraway land who once decided to descend from the high towers of his palace, passing through the narrow paths that led to the valleys and further on to the frontiers and then, as if he were a common man, he joined himself to the common people who lived there.

He never said anything about his origin and demanded nothing for his subsistence. He lived a simple life as did those other people and, being a living example of the rectitude of laws and inner principles, and even when within his being arose the memories of his real Home he, who had chosen to serve, praised the opportunity to be in the valleys, without the magnificence and the royal ornaments.

Still not yet being aware of who they were receiving, his new companions barely perceived what he was silently irradiating. There was a day, however, when the messengers of the Kingdom, having left in search of His Majesty, arrived at these lost lands. The luminous procession curved itself before the one who lived as a beggar! In a chariot of fire, he was raised to the level of his Home, higher than rays of Light, leaving the marks of his passage engraved in the heart of men.

The energy that permeates these devotional instructions brings, impressed within itself, the vibration of the immaterial sphere of consciousness. Their projection into the material strata is representative of the new state of realization of the planet Earth, and is an indication of the times that are approaching. The presence of individuals in Monasteries must be one of the bridges between two worlds; its religious life can be the base that gives stability to this connection; their unconditional surrender to the Creator, the master key to all tests. Only through surrender can we rise up the steps of a staircase that does not have beginning nor end and which can only be recognized in the inner silence.

In the manifestation of the monastic consciousness there is no half-way; so if a hermetic life has to be assumed externally, it must be even more in perfect wholeness inwardly.

It is in the true love for the Creator that the correct love for all creatures can be lived.
