Excerpt About Citadel
The Protection for Who You Are and Your EssenceSo to recapitulate, we need objective perception to see, to understand, that Essence is the answer, is the fulfillment, is the Ridwhan. And from that will result the true value of Essence, in yourself, in others, everywhere. And then, with that understanding and valuing, there will arise the true discipline, the true protection, for your Essence and for the essential life. The world we live in does not support this. People around us do not support this. There are pressures everywhere against this orientation and when you do experience Essence, it needs to be protected. You have to find your own citadel, your own fortress. Your citadel has to do with the true discipline, is the true discipline. There is an actual aspect of Essence, which we call the citadel, which is the protection for who you are and your Essence, so that it will be preserved, so that it will develop, so that it can be used for others. This is the right way of living. It has to be there. It’s not that you’ll experience your Essence and you automatically get out of the swamps. You have to take action, to live your life in accordance with the truth, the truth of your Essence, the truth of who you are, your situation, who you happen to be, what your limitations are.
