“I, Silvio Manuel, tell you: only
daring one can walk confidently the Path of
knowledge! One has to have a venturous heart to go
traveling to the Unknown!
“I, too, went such a Path. Set out
on a sorcerer’s journey to the unknown worlds, I
never thought about returning to the ‘earthly’. I
strove only toward new unexplored expanses awaiting
Me on this Path. The life filled with sorcery and
new worlds — drove Me forward!
“But as I advanced, I gained Wisdom.
And I turned from a ‘restless’ sorcerer-traveler

plans his actions asking advice from his death.
“And one more thing: sad is the
future of those who do not seek companions, do not
take others on the journey! A spiritual warrior

“The Freedom which lives in My
Depth is the highest reward only for those who
truly strive for it and are ready to pull themselves
out of the commonness and limitedness.
“Do not entice anyone into Me! I
receive in Me only those who desire to live with Me,
in Me — and not for a moment, but to unite their
lives with Me!

obstacles and runs to the depths, so you
pursue your course and do not turn back!”
