He comes about once a year. Rather, He does not come, but manifests itself, literally physically. First, He surrounds you with peace and inner joy, and flows into your heart with a very special, warm, accepting, and absolutely unconditional love. Then He manifests itself in a dream: always bright and always through a miracle, so that I recognize Him unmistakably.
A dream about an autumn park and rain, about the grass that wants to sleep, and the sky that has not yet decided what kind of blanket to cover up, and the sun which is shining intermittently, running among the clouds. In this dream, birds and insects always fly, but the most important thing is flowers! The park full of poplars, willows and maples suddenly blooms with the flowers of fruit trees. I recognize this dream and enjoy it. Apple, pear and plum flowers bloom between the yellow and red leaves. Rainbows sparkle in every drop of rain. At this point, He appears and says that his name is Ariel. It changes shape but always kkeps a highland purity. He is oxygen, air currents, wind and rain that nourish the soil, He is fertility and beauty. He is the beauty of Nature in all its cycles, from birth to death and resurrection.
Huge and beautiful, harsh and kind, He was at the origin of the creation of this world. He chose the Topaz, and I don't dare to defy Him.
With His help, it is so easy to "fall" high in the sky, fly far away and relax from the hustle and bustle. Hustle is His main enemy. The demon of hustle runs away from Ariel, raising his knees high.
The main lesson of Topaz and Ariel is:
"Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither
do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly
Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
And why take ye thought for raiment?
Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin.
And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these."
