mark boyle and the dalai lama
Englishman Mark Boyle thought that he could walk from Britain to India
without having a penny on him, only relying on men's bounty. He got
only as far as Calais, France, from which he had to return to England.
He stated, "I was pretty much out of food, hadn't slept for days and
was really cold. I had to reasses the whole plan."
Is there any connection between Mark Boyle and
Lama then, apart from the fact that India where the Dalai Lama lives as
refugee was Mark Boyle's aim and they both belong to the human race?
There is a connection. Buddhist
bikkhus or bhikshus can live on charity throughout their lives, but a
Westerner cannot do
more than thirty Miles and not be left starving and freezing to death
by his own kind. This story bluntly shows the
conflicting perspectives of
spiritual humanity and materialistic humanity.
Billions of believers have been poised between the two humanities and
unable to decide on either. It
will take more than four generation to decide (Rev of Arès 24/2),
but The Revelation of Arès makes us more aware of
the right decision. Man has to regain spiritual life.
can just imagine my fellow-countrymen saying : "Yes, but be
carefull...Be careful!.. What did Mark
Boyle try to do? Just make the most of men's stupidity so that he could
take a trip for free, while the Dalai Lama is the natural head of Tibet
who was forced to flee by the Chinese, followed by his monks, who have
been pursuing very high
good! By the way, what about Mark Boyle's ideals? Did anybody ask him
about them in Calais? I have my doubts. As there is an English look
about him (just see the picture), he has no right to ideals other than
the ideals of Descarte (or of Francis Bacon) and of public
subsidies. No right to the charity copper coin (Rev
of Arès 34/4) given to the unexpected one, the man
of the time to come (30/13).
If only he was a bum, his cap glued by 2-year grime on his mop of hair,
his breath winy, but no, he wasn't! Mark Boyle had new clean clothes
and gears on, his head was well-shaved, he had a nice face approved by
the Department of Health (see the picture again). But the Dalai Lama
also has a well-shaved head, clean clothes... Come on, come on! Let's
not complicate things! The categories have been set. Mark Boyle has no
right to anything, particularly no right to have non-homologated ideas.
Without the slightest hesitation I say, I like the Dalai Lama
very much. He could be a good Arès Pilgrim and I could be a good
Buddhist, if it weren't for the reincarnation point—but the point will
be solved by the spiritual intelligence (Rev of Arès
once man retrieves it—. In any case, there are in the Buddhist ideals
and the Aresian ideals a lot of concepts in common, notably the
concept, which is essential, that "doing" is more significant than
"believing", and that kindness, forgiveness, peace, freedom, are the
beacons on the route to Good. Jesus and Buddha have more values in
common than differences, even though the former used to mention God and
the latter did not or, at least, did not mention him in the same way.
Their differences were particularly due to their cultural environments,
a Jewish one for Jesus, a Brahmanic one for Buddha. Which just shows
that culture hampers evolution, is definitely an obstacle on the road
I like Mark Boyle just as much, although he is probably not an Arès
Pilgrim, because his
surge of freedom and the faith he put in men, even frustrated in
Calais, France, are close to ours, unquestionably.
The idols of the mind (Rev of Arès 23/8)
have been striving to divide and blind all of men that set new targets
for themselves, but we are perfectly
conscious which people are our kind in the global
expectation that the world will be changing (Rev of

a general website put on-line today
The general website "Révélation d'Arès
et Pèlerins d'Arès" (only in French for the time being) has been put
on-line today, as forecast.
The page home is still under construction (intended for a video).
as it is, however, the website provides anyone in want of information
with all they may know about the origin and meaning of The Revelation
of Ares and the personal way the Ares Pilgrims live up to it and take
up their apostolate.
I have put this unfinished website on-line to meet
people's need of
a website at last made as a comprehensive synopsis, that is, something
more than a summary or résumé or calling card , but at the same time
something not obscure or too much detailed or too dull in reading.
Some late problems with civil servants and/or with newspeople have been
indicative of the need they have been of a website both comprehensive
years I have suggested, and hoped, that some others far more competent
and talented than me and having the right tools to do a good job of
on-line (internet) information could make a complete general website
before I had to do it myself, but they have been lacking the time for
it. The Truth on which this website is based has been the full
knowledge of all of the Ares Pilgrims for decades. I have therefore
done nothing more than a work that any Ares Pilgrim could have done and
done much better than me.
you can realize just by taking a look at the plan of the site, what I
have put on-line today is the basic platform of a digital monograph, a
personal job, which I am going to follow up and improve gradually.
If the website address is michelpotay.info,
it is only because it mirrors the personal feeling about The
Revelation of Ares and penitence and the
task of spiritual harvest, that it
inspires in me, which is not necessarily everybody's feeling in an
assembly of free believers or idealists.
general website has been designed for secular people, for whom I have
tried hard to make as clear as possible spiritual issues, points and
questions, which few of them are used to going about the right way.

Ingrid bétancourt's passion
present day, 2008, when the church begins meditating on the passion of
Christ, I do not make Ingrid Betancourt the equal of Jesus. I mention
them together only because we have lately been aware that, if Mrs
Betancourt was released and could regain her political position, she
would devote herself to relieving of their hardships all of the
crucified on earth, whose sample, the FARC who have detained
as a hostage, she has mixed with under duress for six years.
years I have stated that the more impressive are protests rallying and
marching to clamor loud for Ingrid Betancourt's release, the more
pricey the hostage and the less willing the Colombian guerilleros to
part from the human shield she has been so far against the army busy
hunting them down.
But there's something else:
Eladio Perez, a former parliament member lately released by the FARC,
has disclosed that he had talked with Ingrid Betancourt a lot. She has
pondered deeply and changed her mind, he said. Notably, she has ended
up realizing that the FARC's rebellion and violence have not resulted
from a personal ambition of a few leaders of men, but from human causes
much deeper and widely shared. Deep in her prison jungle, Ingrid
Betancourt, although the FARC keep submitting her to want and
humiliation, warns that this rebellion can't be resolved by the
military and that negociation alone on a humanity basis is the way out.
Perez claims to have seen Ingrid Betancourt recording her thoughts in
notepads that the FARC have never taken away from her. She knows that
there are deux Colombias: a wealthy urban Colombia and a destitute
Colombia (a pattern of society also in existence in a lot of countries
on earth) and that nothing conflicting between them can be resolved by
traditional political plans.
It seems that Ingrid Betancourt has
worked out a plan of peace a lot closer to love and wisdom
than law. Would she had understood what The Revelation of Ares
says from beginning to end, that is, politics like its mater religion
does more evil than good, despite good intentions, because it is based
on a system which holds on with law and suppression of the intractable?
the painful passion Ingrid Betancourt has gone through lead to a happy
end of the problem that the FARC have raised in confrontation with
Colombia's central powers and, by extension, to happy measures towards
all the crucified on earth, notably in other parts of Latin American?
Sarkozy, given information on Mrs Betancourt's expectations by Luis
Eladio Perez, may have suggested that France could welcome the
guerilleros from the Colombian jungle in case their country would not
reintegrate them into society after they lay down their arms.

But all of a sudden something
new erupts in politics. I don't take sides, only I observe that Nicolas
Sarkozy is trying, ineptly for the time being but it may get better,
to unhook France from the barbed wires of its own
innumerable, paralyzing, contradictory law and outmoded
concepts, so that it may run freely again, creative and thriving.
Without creativity together with prosperity, the left, or the center,
the right can't by no means be successful. The very men that accuse the
president of "wanting to be a king," of "posing a threat to civil
of "selling off citizens' rights," may be some day the first
whatever he opens the way to.
At the 2008 Farming Fair Mr Sarkozy allegedly hurled at an
objurgator that declined to shake hands with him, "Hotfoot it, you
stupid poor jerk!" Hmm, is it really shocking?
My feelings aren't hurt, as I have always been mumbling to
myself, all day, "You stupid poor jerk!" What sounds promising to me is
the unbridled exchange of words and ideas in France where anything
dynamic hasn't been seen for long. Heraclites said, "Polemos (fight) is

of Emmanuelle Mignon, a presidential adviser, and issued a big
baloney about L'Œuvre du Pèlerinage d'Arès (The non-profit association
that manages the Arès Pilgrimage). Nothing but one more baloney? Yes,
but it gave me one more opportunity to send the newspaper manager a
correcting mail, which may, when added to all the corrections I've sent
"Sud-Ouest" since 1978, help the press and its political

attali: 314 freedom proposals

314 proposals will help toward it, if Mr Sarkozy can have them
The economic rescue plan by Jacques Attali — his intelligence and
courage I salute — involves restoring some freedom to set up and
enterprises and to have possessions, which certainly sounds merely

only one global, absolute freedom,

For the time being, measures have to be taken to pull France out of
disguised communism, terribly ossifying. Measures have to be taken so
that the French can work freely, set up businesses freely, and
gradually drawing near to the ideals LIBERTY, EQUALITY, FRATERNITY,
which have been derived from the Father's Word, whatever rationalistic
French republicans may say about it.
The Attali committee's 314 proposals are bound to arouse vehement rows
between policians, ideologists and unions. However, the
politicians and unionists, that have for decades with sincere feeling
demanded laws to shackle and milk dry management and all sorts of
creators and sustain workers and those intitled to state benefits, have
to admit with sincere feeling alike that their demands have paralysed
economy. The French manufacturers, who are not "saints", have been
moving away and craftsmen becoming rare. France will be gradually
deindustrialized, so that within 20 or 30 years it is to fall into
I am not detailing the 314 proposals. I only lay stress on the fact
that Jacques Attali and the committee he has been chairing have
realized that, in addition to the necessary restoration of freedom to
run businesses and have possessions without being overtaxed, the
restoration of benevolence as prevalent mentality, too long vanished,
is likewise necessary.
Says Attali, "I dream of a France where the scandal of poverty would
substitute for the current scandal of wealth. I dream of a France where
jealousy would no longer prevail against noble feelings, and where
everybody would be aware that, like in any fotball team, it's in
everybody's interest to see others be successful! I dream of a France
that could change its culture of the annuity into the culture of risk."
Just as taking economic risks pays off, taking spiritual risks pays
off, the risks of love,
forgiveness, of peace,
intelligent kindness and of total freedom. There is
no other way for spiritual life to come into existence, the only key to
global happiness. When is real Christianity to start?

the crucifixion, that the church later on would needlessly and
absent-mindedly interpret as a Divine plan (like God had to

has made a God, 2/13).
Seen from a sacred angle, there are a lot of murders which the
executioners, poor men who think they act as benefactors, would not
carry out, if they understood that any great idea that they think they

automatically retract like a snail, if he has not personally chosen his
partners? Because men would be created not to think of their common
destiny together, but to leave themselves to a few ideologists' care,
whether religious or political? But this is just old Adam's culture,
that the Father asks us to leave! Through penitence.

the trust we put in our individual penitences as
levers for turning the world over. We have not
enough prepared for synthesizing the glints of our
thoughts (Rev. of
Arès 27/6) into one and the same discernment
This will come some day.
Why have I created the think tank too early? Out of concern and
impatience, which concern happens to bring about. I've been forever
concerned about the awfully low standard of spiritual dynamics on
earth, the acute need for spirituality. The dream of intellectual
intelligence is coming to an end. The few philosophers and thinkers,
that the mass media still feature from time to time to look highbrow
while their only concern is the news sales, bring nothing ever apt to
change the irreversible obtuseness of the system. Let alone the
(Rev. of Arès 32/5),
which has long accounted for nothing! I have created the think tank,
because the Arès Pilgrims, though sinful, are not cut out to
spread doom and gloom, but they are hope launchers. Should they be
getting people down just as newspapers, or newagencies, trade unions
and opposition parties are continually doing? No, they shouldn't!
Something good sooner or later happens to anybody hopeful. Sooner or
later the seed
comes carried by the
Wind over the desert, life is restored (Rev. of
II/5). But the Wind,
we have to blow it!
We are being held spellbound with stories of climatic warming, of GMO,
of renewable energies to set up immediately. But the climatic warming
has not stopped ever since the end of glaciation, no one has
proved that GMO's are poisons, and as petroleum and uranium go scarce,
be sure that new energies appear, as they go along. This is as plain as
"half a loaf is better than no bread." Sufficient
unto the day is the
Jesus said 2,000 years ago. One has to be careful, Jesus meant, not to
set up a new religion, whatever, even an environmental one, which might
conceal a much more worrying problem: the heavy-handed rationalism that
enslaves men like harnesses
enslave colts (Rev. of
Arès 10/10). As we are the first and for the
time being the only people that prescribe and prefigure it through penitence,
to make gradually the world ready either to change
and create their souls
or kill their bodies
But we have to think over whatever we will tell the world. What's more,
as any essential change
activity does, spiritual or spiritualizing activity will bring about
side-problems, which we have to ponder upstream so as to fend them off
Disparaged by the religious, politicians, conservatives, rationalists
and, of course, the wicked, we are and will be more and more. We have
to think of the ways of entering into talks with them and, beyond them,
we will have to redeploy thinking in all fields. Which is much of a job
for the birds wheeling
and screeching (Rev. of Arès 13/1)
which we still are. There cannot really be such thing as a think tank
as long as we have not correctly prepared for it. We have to suspend
the experience now and take up our preparation through patient
(Rev. of Arès
39/3) penitence (30/11), therefore.
God expects us to grow clearly aware of all the issues that are to
determine the spiritual future of the planet. This can't be determined
by religion or politics, which are irreparably cut off from the world
by their doctrines and the the mummification
(Rev. of Arès XLIX/7) of
their leaders forced to keep predetermined postures. This can't be
determined by any revolution, either, because it only moves checkers
over the checkerboard. We, God and we, don't want any checkerboard
Sooner or later the world will need the central concept of The
Arès, that is, giving up the system and
standing by the Good.
For the time being the world does not believe in that, does not want
that, cannot do that, either. The kingdom of the princes
and the law of the rats (Rev. of
Arès XIX/24) can't be effaced overnight. Which
gives us time to look
for (Rev. of Arès I/15) and harvest
as many penitents as
possible among the men who have been sown (Rev. of
6/2). We will resume the think tank later. We will succed
in everything by loathing
haste (Rev. of Arès 39/3, 24/2).

a pressing need for spiritual men
Today the world, political as
well as religious, is managed like
a huge factory flanked by a film studio. Whether that industry is
thriving over there (Asia) or jousting against hard economic problems
(Europe, singularly France), the fundamental controversies and crises
of conscience are no more,
nowhere having much influence on it, on its white kings,
kings, laws, lookouts and even its rebels,
or on its magic
lantern, its TVs, CDs, DVDs, commercials, technology and fashion feats,
news, etc. The
intellectuals are no more uninfluential, to say
nothing of the spiritual!
Besides, are there any spiritual men left?
This is definitely the tragic question that, in 1974 and 1977, makes
the Maker, continually consumed with love for his creature, come down
to Earth, in Arès, to call on the spiritual men, the souls

the fact that a man can believe in just about anything. A spiritual man

can a man give himself a soul? Through
that is, goodness, love, forgiveness, peace, freedom,
the heart. Read or reread The Revelation of Arès!
The world has a pressing need for spiritual people not only capable of
resisting the cold calculations of rationalists and dull materialists,
which goes without saying, but of resisting general relativism, because
good as well as evil
is by no means relative but
heart of the disillusioned citizen, who is dangerously wrong. Good
is good and evil is evil.
The world requires
men and women who will work hard gaining both good
without compromise with evil (Rev od
Arès 15/6) and an ethical stature
to influence society much more extensively than outsiders can do.
As people's trust put in religious dogmas as well as
political ideologies is disappearing, which a magma
of opinion—in which the "democracy of opinion"
belongs—is replacing, a
magma liquid by nature, conditions for a small remnant
of spiritual men to develop are slowly being fulfilled. Only, the small
remnant cannot come into existence, if they let themselves
consumed by the magma of opinion. A real spiritual man is necessarily a
penitent, whether he is or is not aware
to be so, who
knows that Good never draws on the generally

king (all of non-religious powers) disappear, a new balance
settles naturally, freely: the changed world, if a small
of penitents has gathered to counterbalance the
risk of chaos.

death and honor of a kid
A lot of
people talk about
Guy Môquet's letter to his family, that President Sarkozy had
teachers to read to pupils with no
obligation to do so. Few people have full knowledge of it. Here it is,
My little brother I treasure,
My Daddy I love,
I'm going to die. All I ask you, particularly to my Mommy, is: Just be
brave and strong! I'm so, and I want to stand so just as those who went
through it before me have been.
I'd rather live, indeed. But I wish with all my heart that my death
will serve a good purpose. I didn't have time to kiss Jean. I kissed
both my brothers Roger and Rino. But the real one I couldn't,
unfortunately! I hope that my belongings will be sent to you. They may
be useful to Serge, who I insist will be proud to have them on some day.
You my daddy, if I have hurt you as well as Mommy, at all, I greet you
both for the last time. Just be aware that I've done my best to follow
the way you've shown me.
I say my farewells to my friends, to my brother I love a lot. Let him
be a good student so he may be a man later.
I'm 17 and a healf years old, my lifetime's short, but all I regret is
that I have to leave you all. I'm going to die along with Tintin,
Mommy, I bid you, I want you to promise me that you will be strong and
brave and overcome your grief.
I can't add anything. I leave you all, Mommy, Serge, Daddy, I kiss you
all with all my kid's heart. Be strong!
Your Guy who loves you.
deeply moving letter by a kid, whom a firing
squad is waiting for. In those tragic days no more
distinction was drawn between communists and conservatives, workers
and bourgeois, when any dignified human, conscious that he or she
couldn't grovel to one of the worst systems ever contrived by
politicians: Nazism, was having no preoccupation but to resist, fight
On October 22d, some teachers (about 5%) have
refused to read Guy Môquet's letter to their pupils. A few of
considered the sentiments in the letter as
indecent. Some others thought that reading the letter amounted to
serving Mr Sarkozy's political interests. Which is a certainty, but is
there anybody on earth who fail to defend his ideals? I personally
never miss an opportunity to highlight my own ideals. That did not in
any way take away from the grandeur and bravery of a very young man,
who commands admiration, a by no means unsound admiration. I don't
think, either, that Mr Sarkozy intended making the teachers train their
pupils as real tough nuts baring their chests to bullets out of warlike
stupidity. I think that he only intended showing young people,
unconscious that they live a happy, peaceful life sheltered from fierce
coercions, that terrifying hardships might reemerge tomorrow and they
would have to face them with the dignity, bravery and even love
peculiar to man compared to animals. For the last minutes of his short
life the kid, raised in an unbelieving family, finds the honorable,
moving emotion of Jesus on the cross, who does not curse his
executioners and who does weigh up his sacrifice's value.
For thirty years our mission likewise has reminded the French people
that grandeur, bravery...in short heroism (Rev of
happen to be constructive values not to be put aside as if they were
"pompous" or "behind the time" (two words I've freshly heard), because
men will not happily escape from hardships in store, if they do not
regain Guy Môquet's letter's sweet plain majesty, which also

doris lessing, an "insurger"
whiny distant radio I
catch this, "...Nobel of
2007...Mrs Doris Lessing." I don't believe it! That "nice skinner," as
I've long called her? I prick up my ears,
"...in 1976 was given the Medicis prize for The Golden Notebook." I
did not even
know that she had been translated into French. I only
sense—that whoever had read
books by her in English couldn't help but regard her as one of the
great flags of opposition to the system as well as opposition to
the classic social pipedreams that have kept men, timorously hiding
behind politics, government and law, from facing up their real destiny.
An Arès Pilgrim she is probably not, but an "insurger" she
with something more, provocative and terrible, for which I can't see
any necessity—with the meaning
I "minted" the word "insurgence" into as "the Aresian soul's coin" (Many
mine on that theme).
not read all of Doris Lessing's books, far from it, but I know two ot
three things about her, which make us closer to each other.
She was a Communist and I used to be so in the days when I discovered
her from a book left on a seat on the Paris-Lyon express by some
She set to work writing not to be a writer, but to tell men about
her experience of life and cry in substance, "You're all nasty pieces
of work!" I set to work writing not to be
a writer, but to tell men about a quite different experience, the
Creator's, and add to the cries of Doris Lessing and all the denouncers
of human evil, "Yes, you are, but you can change."
She is not interested in pretty congratulations. I am not.
She doesn't waste time worrying about nasty things and malice. I don't,
either, because life is too short, is not worth dwelling on slanderous
viciousness, while the most urgent thing is to show men that, even
whenever they are not really mean, insignificant or repulsive, they are
by no means up to their real metaphysical capability of love and
I think that congratulators and carpers are just like roses and
moquitoes. Today the former are fragrant and the latter biting, but
tomorrow they will be no more. They never inspire
the clear-headed world anything to help it create something new or
evolve. She thinks so, only with different words. Although my own
real-life experience and the
real-life experience of Doris Lessing, ten years my senior, aren't like
each other, they have poured down through the same human flesh like
torrents. In their eddies the clear-headed man can mirror his own face,
distorted, disappointing, but
out of disappointment can decide to re-create himself different and
have great expectations rising.
Would Doris Lessing be just "the emancipated woman," as the Nobel
Academy says? To me she is much more than that, she is the emancipated
When she was 65 years old and already an established writer, Doris
Lessing did an interesting experiment. She sent a manuscript under a
false name to her publisher, who sent it back as mediocre and/or
unpublishable. She was awfully amused once more seeing the very great
relativity of the world's values. Accordingly, I feel amused at the
idea that I might have got an inverse result, if in 1974-1975 I had
sent to the 47 publishers, that were all going to turn down the
manuscrit of The Gospel Given in Arès (The
Revelation of Arès's
part), in a false presentation, like a book having been cynically
written by me
instead of supernaturally received from Heaven. Some publishers could
have responded positively.

should I pass it on, but not think it out?
30 years ago the
theophanies were beginning. From October
2d to November 22,
1977, The Book spoken by the
himself would come and step up The Gospel Given in
Arès, that I
got from a messenger, Jesus, 44 months earlier. It was to win The
Revelation of Arès its
plenitude. Since then what have I most been
reproached for? Publishing that great Message? No. I have been
reproached for adding my thinking to my prophethood.
always received suggestions that I should publish The
Revelation of Arès only bare, bare without any
comment, or footnotes, but around the theophanies' 30th anniversary
suggestions are growing insistent.
Among the intimaters there are those who usually think that
believing is worthier than understanding. But, had the Father ever
thought that faith was enough, we wouldn't have had that determinative Revelation
of Arès, whose none of the concepts or words is
The Revelation of Arès doesn't address passive
people. It honors
man's intellect and creativity. Why wouldn't it honor the intellect and
creativity of its witness, whom it calls a prophet?
Determinative The Revelation of Arès has
to be, if it's going
to remind people of a cardinal life-saver: Doing (good)
The real nature of the problem, I think, is that The
Arès's derogators are realizing that they will
have it disappear, so that they forsake the argument, "That so-called
revelation is just a fraud or an act of folly," and begin using the
argument, "As this book exists, it is nothing but mankind's asset. Each
man has a right to read and understand it freely and not be swayed."
But nobody's been swayed by me. I've just performed my love and clarity
mission. I've not founded any religion or philosophy. I've never
menaced the many people who "don't agree with my pinchbeck book," and
who will be more justified than me, a sinner, if they are good people.
Why ban me from thinking on the pretext that a man who is given a Word
by the Creator would be unable to spell it out? All I do is cut short
the reader's pursuit of truth, because culture has put dark glasses on
his nose. I give him the Light in minutes. Here it is, summarized,
"Man, have a good look! No religion, no politics, no law, no honorable
institution, whatever, has ever triumphed over evil, so that they all
have declared it ineluctable and set it up as their business and
moneymaker. At best, they have made it acceptable, and, at worst, they
have made it even crueller than the old barbarians had. Now, evil and
even death are not invincible. They can disappear when people
sufficient in number, a small remnant, but not only
exceptions, will grow good, love their
the offenses, make peace, put in absolute freedom
spiritual intelligence so as to restabilize
intelligence." Detractors retort, "That's not news!" I nod in
agreement, "That's not news, indeed. That's the immemorial Word, the
Gospel, that has never been achieved."
Because only what is wanted
can be achieved,
but the dominators have seen to it that grassroot
would never want it. This would sound mysterious,
if we failed
to get it pretty clear that the true of the Word,
the Word once
well rid of the religious additions, especially The
Arès therefore, is existentialist to the core.
stipulates that man is absolutely free to build his existence,
which does not do nicely for the dominators.domination,
even if it is bound to
cut their lives short, just as gamblers would rather die at the card
table than drag themselves away from it. The Revelation
of Arès harshly disputes the validity of all that
makes man believe
that evil, suffering and death be unavoidable and the dominators
be appointed to permit the peoples to enjoy a certain amount of animal,
blind delights in life. Quite the contrary, it says, Truth is
the world has to change.
of Arès is
quite the opposite to
the effort to change. It urges man to set himself free
and start to climb the sublime Heights.
For all that,
it does not deny anybody the right to make the most of the joys
and delights of life, which some prim persons see
inconciliable with spiritual Life. The
Revelation of Arès
praises both life and Life. It reminds that the man
much intellect, but inadequate kindheatedness, has forgotten about the
outstanding capabilities of conscience, notably the freedom of the
intentional, the transcendent and the existential. It reminds us that penitence
is not remorse or sadness, at all, but it is self-re-creation and
self-exaltation, and that a different way of living happy, joyous,

over, which my blog cannot elaborate on.

and perverting versions, ready for publication. They have never grown

Doubts or discovery of the Truth?
do not think that Agnes Bojaxhiu, mother Teresa, highlight of devotion
to human misery, highlight of solace, used to have doubts. I do not
think that she entertained doubts about the Light, ever.
A woman that does not believe in the Creator, and that does not believe
in the great hopes the Creator cherished, and has not ceased to
cherish, that his creature would eventually agree to live happy some
day, that woman could not, not out of patience specifically divine,
devote her love and life to the creature whom only freedom
to sin make suffer and be wretched and
mortal (Rev of
woman that believes in man believes in God's image
believes in God in some way or other, whether expressly or silently.
That woman moreover has a spiritual life very special in beauty
(Rev of Arès 12/3).
Therefore, why the letters that the news are currently commenting on,
through which mother Teresa told her doubts, her "emptiness"?
Plain is the answer. Whoever finds out the Truth—Truth
that the world has to change (28/7)—just as I found
it out, albeit
under quite different circumstances, reaches the same dilemma, and then
the same emptiness.
Anybody, even a grande dame of charity in Calcutta (India) or an
undeserving petty fellow made a prophet in
dismisses the religious, theological God and Christ, when he or she
discovers the teleological Father and Jesus, the real
Jesus of the true ends (Rev of
XXXIV/1-4), of the real relationship between the means and
ends, the means to conquer evil and the ends of the Good,
of which the men of the time to come (Rev of Arès
have to carry out.
It was as a woman that mother Teresa discovered Truth.
as a woman that for decades she was confiding in her religious friends
about her "emptiness"—just a cultural
discovery had dug deep within her. It was as a woman, that is, in a
modest, limited way, because as a nun fully dependent upon the catholic
church socially and financially, that she from instinct felt that she
should cautiously hide the Core
of her thought. She
"just shut up," as people say. She alluded to her doubt without her
scratching its surface, for fear (rightly or wrongly) that she might
find herself in some social and financial death, just as I would find
myself twenty years later. But as a man, a man in his prime, I was able
to overcome the isolation complete and financially helpless, into which
the Truth I had been given by Jesus had thrown me
and my family.
Yes, I did experience Teresa's "emptiness." But such an emptiness holds
more Truth than all of the ideas quirky or
very spick-and-span, which mankind through religion and politics, all
of their vainglories, has thought she had to garrison it.
Some ask me: Why will the catholic church canonize mother Teresa?
Wasn't she obviously having doubts about the church?
Canonizing is building the invisible mausoleum on
top of a dead
person that people are strongly urged to pray to. A
that I am in charge of banning (Rév
d'Arès 33/35), it's
true, but I have issued the ban, it is The Revelation of Ares.
The church agrees or turns it down, freely in control of

I figure that, in the tough world, it may not be improper to show the image
of a woman who quenched motherless babies' thirsts,
who clothed poor guys, and who tried to be equal
