Penitence is a groping in the unknown, an
apprenticeship which may last a lifetime,
but you have to start from now on, because the
world has to change (28/7)
to be saved. No standard of penitence is set,
only despondency is impiety (13/8).
We as Arès Pilgrims are apostles.
But what do our leaflets read? Just as the news, the
politicians, the Sunday sermons do, they reason, "The
world is disastrous, unjust, untruthful, merciless, we've
got to do something!" Now, this is well-known by people
who listen to us and either they are world-weary as
nothing fundamental has changed for long or they have
their own solutions and are not interested in ours.
Only penitence will conquer evil. It is both the
norm and the flag of The Revelation of Arès.
We are the only ones to preach penitence and for
the individual together with the world this is a matter of
spiritual life and death at first, and finally of physical
immortalization and decline.
I will be asked, "Ok, but how many men on earth realize
that their personal fate is linked to the world's fate?"
Admittedly few, at least for now, and the only means of harvesting
the few that are to hear us and make up the pious
gent (or kindred), a mist of Heavenly Water
on the worlds to save it (Rev of Arès xLv/13-17),
is reminding everywhere forcefully that every man, even
isolated amid seven billion humans, is the image and
likeness of the Maker (Genesis 1/26-27),
a co-creator of the world and that no one recreates
himself and finds salvation without participating in
recreating and saving the world knowingly or unknowingly.
Penitence is the main line of The Revelation
I the Creator of the world and of every man that
treads it; I do not forgive sins. My Salvation does
not result from (God's) Forgiveness; it results from
(man's) penitence (30/10). Truth is that the world has
to change (28/7).
The concept that we have had to proclaim ever
since 1974 is the very simplest one:
and the world are one and the same life, your salvation
and the world's salvation are dependent on each
other and your part in the process is
Your personal penitence, which consists in loving
your neighbor, forgiving all offenses, make peace,
thinking and talking with heart intelligence,
being free from all prejudices, and
Your harvest of other penitents,
because love has to be shared with all mankind.
No need of religion, politics, ideology, dogma. No hidden
face of anything complicated.
This is so simple that, once we have said so,
people's inquiring eyes peer at us, because they are
living a life more and more complicated, anxiety-inducing,
treacherous, in which a lot are just about to lose it, and
they wait for us to continue, try to guess the
intrications and pressures likely hidden.
But there is nothing more, no intrications or pressures
This simplicity might suit humans who more and more loathe
institutions, religion, politics, law, rules, constraints,
and find it hard to swim against a heavy politico-societal
swell which could well turn into a storm.
But no, this simplicity does not suit them. At least not
from the outset.
We add (if they keep on listening to us):
Man brother, stay
Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist or
Atheistic, but be a penitent, change your life (Rev
of Arès 30/10-11), because we have to change
the world (28/7) from evil to good
before it rots and suffers dreadfully by the sin of
Just be a penitent, even if you don't join in
the small remnant (24/1). The small remnant
is the brothehood that follows on from the prophet's
action, believers focused on the real-life practice and
spreading of The Revelation of Arès.
But people, if they have not fled yet, keep
on waiting for something else, the intrications or
pressures hidden. Their suspicious curiosity may be due to
the fact that changing one's life (Rev of Arès
30/11), get it out of the standard, the modern
havoc, requires something they have lost: creative
individuality and personality and that they are unready
for striving to regain them.
Some however say things like, "What you've put forward
exists, you know! You can hear similar old teaching in
Hindu ashrams, Buddhist or Soto Zen monasteries, Sufi
societies, and even in Christian monasteries, in Gurdjieff
groups, an so on."
We reply (if
people are still listening to us):
No doubt that there are such things as ways of "awakening"
or "freeing" outside religion or ethics to pass from a
state of being to another state of being. But God through
The Revelation d'Arès does not call upon man to find
personal salvation through ways which apply only to rare
persons capable of following them. He calls for universal
spiritual Life and Salvation: Truth is that the world has
to change (28/7). The world! With other words God resumes
Jesus' Sermon on the Mount (Matthew ch. 5 to 7) which
universalizes penitence, and on the move even the small
remnant of penitents is not a cream destined for a
privileged eschatology, but it is just the rally of
brothers and sisters especially devoted and busy. The
purpose is the very simplest one: Mankind will never be
saved by religion, politics, law, but it will be saved by
a lot of men who will become good.
God does not even demand that men believe in
Him (Rev of Arès 28/12). The Revelation of Arès
indeed puts the human masses to the test of the real, so
that they may go back to the real, of which He God is the
apex. But He is patient, He will show Himself in
due course. He is aware that man flees from the real
today; even materialism and atheism are escapings from the
real, just take the cinema, the most heathen of arts,
which plunges the masses into fiction.
Spiritual freeing has little to do with philosophic or
ideological freeing. This is why we at the very most are
existentialist philosophically speaking. On the other hand
we are thoroughly spiritual and in search of Life
(Rev of Arès 24/5).
man, whoever you are, you are spiritual. Only you are not
aware of it. Listen to me! The Straight Path (Quran
"Al-Fatiha" 1/6) is not in books, not in speeches,
not in prayers, but it is within yourself and it is very
Come! You can save yourself and save
