A Quote by Isha De Lubicz on desires, liberation, and enlightenment

To arouse oneself from the state of sleep and take the first step toward liberation, one must attain a thorough understanding of the meaning of the Permanent Witness (or Ego-Consciousness) and see in that it differs from mere brain-consciousness.

            We shall then be able to understand hoe this personal conscience, though it needs to be awakened, is nevertheless a part of Personality whose aims are in general opposed to those of the Spiritual Self.

            The Personality wants:

            •  Continuity on earth
            •  The relative values of this temporary existence
            •  Intellectual information put at the service of worldly interests (a social, scientific, or commercial career)
            •   Mediocrity – since rash extremes can never expect to win public approval and gain social and worldly advantage
            •   Utilitarianism, meaning everything that fits in with mundane computation and logical reason

            The Spiritual Witness on the other hand, desires:

            •   To unite with the human and thus transmute it into an immortal being
            •   Absolute values which are indestructible
            •   To open the “heart” to intuitive knowledge
            •   The sense of excess, as a springboard from which to overleap human limitations and convert the fall of man into an opportunity of evolution
            •   Unalterable love of reality
            •   Love of life for its own sake
            •   Love of impersonal Love
