Our real eyes are still closed. We need to discover how to open them.

School of construction of souls

East a paragraph of the book: "it is important to remember the great wonder that we, the astonishing fact that the human being can be transformed. Whatever well that we are sunk, we have the ability of evolution. We come to this world, precisely, to transform us, because this world is a school of transformation of consciousness. The poet John Keats, who wept so much in this life, said that the world is not a 'Valley of tears', but «the Valley of the creation of the soul». These words, taken from a very extensive menu that sent his brothers, have been referred to many times. Keats says that human beings have two parts: body and intelligence, but that lack of soul, and who come to this world just to build one. This world is nothing but a school of soul making, a school for the creation of souls.
