" 'So, in your opinion, human beings only find life meaningful when they're at war.'
'But we're always at war. We're at war with death, and we know that death will win in the end. In armed conflicts, this is simply more obvious, but the same thing happens in daily life. We can't allow ourselves the luxury of being unhappy all the time.'
'What do you want me to do?'
'I need help. And that doesn't mean saying to me: "Go and hand in your notice", because that would only leave me feeling even more confused than before. We need to find a way of channeling all this, of allowing the energy of this pure, absolute love to flow through our bodies and spread around us. The only person so far who has helped me understand this is a rather other-worldly interpreter who says he's had revelations about this energy.'
'Are you talking about the love of God?'
'If someone is capable of loving his partner without restrictions, unconditionally, then he is manifesting the love of God. If the love of God becomes manifest, he will love his neighbour. If he loves his neighbour, he will love himself. If he loves himself, then everything returns to its proper place. History changes.
'History will never change because of politics or conquests or theories or wars; that's mere repetition, it's been going on since the beginning of time. History will only change when we are able to use the energy of love, just as we use the energy if the wind, the seas, the atom.'
'Do you think we two can save the world?'
'I think there are more people out there who think the same way. Will you help me?'
