How did the masculine principle 1, create the feminine principle 0 matter ? By bending back and joining together its two extremities. At that moment the circle is formed, and the circle represents matter, the universe as a whole. 1 the creative principle, therefore comes first in all things, and 0 creation, or what is created, must follow. By putting 1 before 0 we increase its power 10 times : 1 becomes 10. If, on the other hand, we do the opposite 01, we reduce its strength and its value 10 times. Let us now translate this to the inner life. If you put yourself, that which has been created in other words 0, first, and 1 the divine principle, in second place, behind you, then you reduce your qualities and your ability to progress. Whereas if you say : Lord, only You are truly great, powerful and wise, I shall always put You before me in first place and I shall follow You,' you increase your capabilities : you become 10. That is the attitude of truly spiritual people : they put the Lord first, so they receive good advice, and they are well guided.
