This power of all powers, which Hermes Trismegistus calls telesma, is Love
"In the Emerald Tablet we are told, ĎIt rises up from earth and descends again from heaven and receives its power from above and below. It is the power of all powers.í This power, which Hermes Trismegistus calls telesma, is love. This is the power initiates must tap into on high in the subtle state and bring back down into the depths of their being to feed their cells. Capturing the divine energy in an elevated state is not enough; they must also be able to bring it down and absorb it. This is the reason why they strive to purify themselves by getting rid of all feelings and thoughts that do not resonate with this cosmic power.
When initiates succeed in freeing the etheric channels in their subtle bodies, currents of divine love descend into their body, where they feed all their cells. They then experience such fulfilment that no physical desire can torment them ever again, for heaven has truly taken possession of their soul, their heart and all the organs of their physical body."
Countries believe they can solve problems with their neighbours and ensure their safety by perfecting weapons which are more and more deadly, until one day they will destroy the whole earth. Because, with this approach, the more time passes, the more complicated things become. As long as human beings do not choose to solve their problems with spiritual force, with the power of divine love, nothing will ever be resolved. Therefore, whatever your situation and station in life may be, from this day forward you at least must try to resolve any problems with your parents, your friends or your enemies by expressing love and kindness. By doing so, you will activate a law which will require them sooner or later to respond in the same way. Yes, this is the power of provocation! As long as you do not understand how to resolve problems, you unfailingly provoke the negative side in others, which in turn waits until you drop your guard and comes back to attack you. Study history and you will see that this has always been the case.
There is no better method than love for solving the problems that pit human beings against one another. Unfortunately, few people think to use this method, and moreover they do not believe in its power. To them, force and even violence seem more effective. One day, however, they will have to recognize that love is the most formidable weapon, in the face of which the entire world is obliged to surrender. Confronted with true love, the enemy has no possible means of escape and is eventually vanquished. Arm yourselves, then, with the weapons of love; you will see that no one can resist you or blame you for using them. If you find they are not effective enough, it is because your love is not powerful enough. Strengthen your love, magnify it, and you will see: all will be forced to surrender.
"Look at how the sun penetrates the earth; it fertilizes it, and the earth becomes covered in flowers and fruits. The whole world is nourished thanks to the sunís penetration of the earth. But humans have understood nothing of this great mystery: they have eyes, but itís as though they see nothing.
The secret of power lies in the ability to penetrate people and things with rays of light and love, just as the sun does. A master, a true master, takes the sun as his example: he sends his love to all creatures to impregnate and warm them. And if you really want to help those you love, you too must send them your light, penetrate them with the rays of your light, imagining the rays permeating their whole being, all the particles of their body, so they become purified, invigorated and revitalized. That is true love."
"At one time or another you have met a man or a woman who has inspired in you a deep feeling of affection. Did you notice the transformations that this feeling alone produced within you? Suddenly you began to think and behave differently, not only towards this person, but with everyone around you. Even your relationship with nature and objects changed. So many things that you did not see or feel before begin to reveal themselves to you, encouraging you to pursue other interests! Because love is a force and this force acts on you, it influences your mind, your will, and even your body and it opens up great possibilities for you.
Love is like the fuel in your car: if your tank is full, you can go a long way, but if it is empty, how far can you go? And if love is missing, where can you go?"
