When human beings neglect the bond that unites them with the divine world, they cut themselves off from their true roots and have great difficulty in giving meaning to life. The divine world is not like a foreign country that lies outside of us and that we can ignore without consequences. The divine world is our inner earth, our original earth, it is the world of our soul and our spirit, and by cutting ourselves off from it, we deprive ourselves of the resources we need most to live.
Some people, when faced with life’s hardships, instinctively regain the contact with this higher world which is their true homeland. But this is not enough. We must be conscious at all times in our daily lives of the presence within us of this world that is so rich and powerful, where we can endlessly draw on strength, courage, inspiration and so on.
