Some people live a totally petrified life, others let themselves live like plants, others are slaves of their instincts, like animals
"We define ourselves according to our desires, aspirations and ideal. All human beings have the same outward appearance. Placed face to face with a man or a woman, we have no doubt that it is a human being because of the external appearance, but if we study his or her aspirations, we can compare them to a rock, a plant, an animal, a man, or a divinity. Some people live a totally petrified life, others let themselves live like plants, others are slaves of their instincts, like animals, others have reached a superior level of thought - the true gift of man! The latter dedicate their time to study, research and artistic creation. Finally, very few embark on the path of deification, offering their services to heaven and dedicating all their forces and activities in that direction. Since the same structure is found everywhere in the universe, a subtle relation thus exists between the thoughts, feelings and activities of man, and the entire creation."
