"The essential truths that Christians need for their evolution are contained in the Gospels. Many people will say they have read them and have not discovered much in them, which is why they are now turning towards oriental teachings. Well, this simply proves that they have understood nothing of the immense wisdom that was destined for them in the wisdom of the Gospels. Yes, I know, people have had their fill of these texts that they know so well, and they want a change of diet, but they must realise that it is dangerous to go searching for it in teachings which were not destined for them, which were not designed for their structure or their mentality. It is the teaching of Christ that is meant for Westerners, but they have not yet either read it seriously or meditated on it. You will say: 'Yes, but I am looking for something else...' Yes, but with what intention? Very often, people follow an oriental teaching as a distraction or to appear more interesting in the eyes of others. But this serves no purpose, and it simply proves that they love the exotic and not the simple truth."
