Complex Entireties in the Transisphere

April 4, 2019

Reality is not only that which is visible, but above all that which is invisible.

Whenever an entirety is formed according to God, whatever the people or things, it is possible that this entirety have an angel that cares for it and gives it character. A woods, for example, or an architectonic entirety such as Chambord or the Museum of Ipiranga.

Nothing interests me as much as a certain spirit that emanates, for example, from the Castle of Chambord, which spirit leads me to ponder the castle indefinitely.

Although God did not make Chambord directly, he may have inspired that architectural ensemble, and afterwards sent the angel “Chambord” to as if emanate from the castle.

In a contrary sense, there exist ensembles of junk, dirtiness, like unto the devil, from which devils emanate. This results in a shock between the angel “Chambord” and the devil of trash and junk.

God has disposed that there be particular states of soul through the conjunction of various objects. To perceive the divine significance of things and to live with one’s eyes fixed upon this is to live in God.

Whereas egoism expels the angels and attracts devils, this vision of things is a source of pure love of God, and of very superior diversion capable of giving true joy to the soul.
