Involution and evolution - descending and rising

The process by which human beings descended from the heavenly regions is what we call involution. As they came down into matter, distancing themselves from the primordial fire, they took increasingly dense bodies, ending with the physical body. It's just like in winter: to brave the cold, we have to put on lots of clothes, starting with a vest and ending with an overcoat. Now, to make their way back to the heights, human beings have to take their clothes off, symbolically speaking, meaning they have to get rid of everything that is weighing them down. Instead of continuing to bury themselves beneath all kinds of ill-assorted, useless concerns and activities, they must learn to give things up, to free themselves, because accumulation encourages descent. Any thought, feeling or wish that is not of a spiritual nature sticks to them like frost on the branches in winter. The spring sun has to start to shine in us again so that the frost can melt, so that we can rediscover our true being and feel the divine breath move through us.
