So it is not a question of changing the world but of transforming ourselves, of enlightening & fortifying our inner being
"No one will ever be able to prevent loss, accidents or tragedies from happening, but each of us can find ways of facing them so that they are not too hard to endure. Winter is a difficult period, but those who have insulated their houses and prepared what they need to keep warm will overcome these difficulties.

The same is true for the inner life. Your life is bound to be turned upside down by certain events, certain conditions or situations. We live in such a chaotic world that we are always vulnerable to shocks. So it is not a question of changing the world – that would be impossible – but of transforming ourselves, of enlightening and fortifying our inner being. The transformation of the world is God’s affair, and he does not expect this of us. What he asks is that we work on ourselves, so that we are never brought low."

"The concept of creation is the quintessence of our teaching. Yes, to create, but to create what ? Paintings, or sculpture ? To work on canvas, wood, marble ? No, to work on yourself, because you yourself are the true base material. A sculptor produces a few sculptures, and that is all very well, but when you look at him you see that he has never tried to sculpt himself : he is mere unworked, raw material. People will show you their paintings, their songs and their poems, and these may reflect only their inner chaos. Enough of all these artists ! Where are the true artists, ready to start the real work, ready to sculpt their inner selves ? This kind of work is not known about, it is new and unacclaimed : but it is the work of the future."
