- “I didn’t understand very well, Sweet Mother.
You haven’t understood what the true physical is, because it is not a question of understanding. One is not conscious of it because one is not inside it, one doesn’t live in it. But can’t you conceive of a body which would be perfectly beautiful, perfectly harmonious, which would function perfectly well and would never be ill, never tired, and would be in a state of constant progress? First it would become taller and taller until it reaches its maximum height, and then it would become stronger and stronger, more and more skilful, more and more conscious, and always in a perfect harmony: never any illness and never any fatigue, never any error, making no mistakes, knowing exactly at each moment what ought to be done and why.
- Mother, it is said that there is a true being... but usually when one speaks of the physical it means material, concerning the body, doesn’t it?
For the moment there is no true being in the most material domain. It is only a kind of subtle prototype which is not materially realised.”
