Words of Light (Lời giác ngộ)

When we see the state of the world today, of course we tell ourselves the worst may yet happen: atomic war, epidemics, natural catastrophes and so on, capable of bringing about the disappearance of humankind. And so, voices are heard announcing that the afflictions described in the book of Revelation are set to rain down on earth. It is true that Revelations predicts the end of the world; it is written. But actually events are never predetermined. They can take quite a different course, depending on the behaviour of humanity. Nothing is predetermined; there is no irrevocable destiny, either for the individual or for the world as a whole. God is not a tyrant decreeing cataclysms that no one can do anything about. He created humans with free will; they determine their own future. If they live without awareness and lead a dissolute life, they unleash chaotic currents, and then, of course, the laws of nature, which are the laws of justice, bring them to catastrophic ends; it can only be so. But if they decide to be wiser, if they radiate a harmonious energy and no longer disturb the balance of nature, many misfortunes can be avoided.

If we are peaceful, if we are happy, we can smile and blossom like a flower, and everyone in our family, our entire society, will benefit from our peace.

The past eludes you, and the future is not yet yours. Only the present belongs to you; it is in your hands waiting to be fashioned, like prime matter. You have a minute, an hour, a day at your disposal... These belong to you, and you must try to live them in clarity. Once you have opened up the space between you and the divine world, you will be able to say that the future also belongs to you. Your future is one of joy and light. And do not allow yourself to be influenced by those who predict only difficulties and misfortunes, because they do not know what the future really is or how to create it. Misfortunes are the past, not the future. The future, that is to say, your true future as sons and daughters of God, waits for the past to be erased before appearing. But that does not mean the future is not underway. Actually, it is alive, it is already there: you are creating it.
