We must cultivate our outer side for society and our inner side for ourselves. At the same time we must remain conscious that our inner life expands and will one day make contact with the entire world, with all beings on earth and in heaven.
While our external activity is very limited, our internal activity is utterly vast. Our actions reach only a few people, while our feelings and especially our thoughts are capable of reaching all beings. Thought is far more powerful and embraces infinitely more than the will which inspires our actions; it is also more subtle and has greater possibilities. By way of thought we can do anything we want, even travel in space, whereas the will, because it operates in matter, meets with enormous resistance and remains very limited in its sphere of activity. One day, however, after numerous incarnations and immense spiritual work, our thoughts will activate our will instantaneously.Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov
