Essene Teachings for Peace

Peace -- New Method, New Light by Olivier Manitara

Everyone wants peace; yet, there have never been so many wars -- at every level of life. Every day, more and more individuals are taken over -- in spite of themselves -- by the vibration of anger, of irritability, and of the great conflict pitting everyone against everyone else.

Here, the author presents a new and surprising point of view, while revealing methods which become evident, and whose effectiveness is assured for the triumph of peace -- both internal and external.

"Peace exists inside every person, and it is up to us to make it flow freely, so that it can illuminate life with its presence, and give us the strength necessary to triumph over all obstacles."

A teaching of a rare quality, dedicated to all those who thirst for peace, justice, light and love -- and who are, above all, ready to take action

The Kingdom of Peace Is Like a King

The kingdom of peace is like a king who raises an army to go off to war. He wins all of the battles, and the victory is his. He is filled with joy because he has crushed his enemies. But he soon realizes that many of his best friends are dead; and he sees, once again, the faces of those he has killed, with their blood still staining his armor.

He says to himself: "Do they, perhaps, have wives and children weeping for them now?"

His heart becomes filled with sadness; he knows that the real enemy has not been defeated. In truth, I say to you, there is never any victory in external wars. It is always man who loses. It is impossible to separate victory and defeat in this kind of war.

The real enemy is inside oneself; the person who triumphs over it elevates himself above that victory-defeat, to find the light of the kingdom that I am telling you about.

The Balance Between The Spiritual Life And The Material Life

These days, human beings are concerned only with their bodies and with external life. The spirit has disappeared and the consciousness is of no interest to anyone. This orientation produces an imbalance, an unconscious turmoil which is the cause of all wars. Peace is, above all, an equilibrium, a harmony, a fullness, a justice. Man can find this peace only by once again balancing the spirit and matter inside himself -- by using the sword of the consciousness.

The sword of the Archangel Michael, which Christ talks about, is the needle on the scale; it is also the virtue which allows one to distinguish what belongs to the spirit from what belongs to matter. Then each thing can be put into its correct place for the good of the whole. One must not neglect the spirit in order to only take care of the material side; but one must not neglect the body either, and take interest only in the spirit. Peace is never extremist; it results from a reasonable union of the two poles of the one-energy.

The Universal Key Of Peace: The Great Method

If you want to approach a deeper understanding of this teaching on peace, you can freely practice the following meditative exercises and methods which emanate from the initiatic current of the Cosmic Tradition and from St. John’s humanity of light.

Develop the good habit of feeling the ground under your feet, of feeling that the earth is carrying you. Even when you lie down in your bed to sleep, you can be aware that the earth is supporting you and that you give your body over to it with confidence.

Develop the good habit of feeling the infinite sky above you. You must acquire this perception of the immensity and the eternity of the highest heights.
Raise your eyes up towards the blue of the sky and consciously tie yourself to the divine spirit, to the Most High, to the Supreme One -- with a feeling of elevation, of ennoblement, and of unlimited perfection.

Just as you were able to realize that the earth is carrying you and supporting you, you must also succeed in feeling that the infinite immensity of the sky above you is elevating you, is attracting you upwards, is straightening you up, and is awakening you inside your true eternal being.

The third habit to be acquired consists of feeling yourself to be like a point of liaison between the sky and the earth, allowing the inspirations of the spirit to pass into matter and elevating the energies of matter up towards the spirit.

Whatever he does, an artisan of peace is aware of the earth, of himself and of the spirit, and also of his ability to make the spirit material and to make matter spiritual. For example, when he is eating, he is aware that he is making matter spiritual; and this is why he strives to perform this action with gratitude—inviting in the most elevated thoughts.

When he speaks, he is aware that it is the beauty of the spirit that is being manifested through his words; and he strives, therefore, to build up, and not to destroy. But these examples are poor compared with the profound discoveries waiting for the person who strives to acquire these habits in life. He will see, inside himself, that everything negative can be suppressed, and transformed by the power of the spirit -- and that only the awakened man can make it possible for the kingdom of peace to materialize inside the earthly reality, by adopting the new life of the spirit.

The Kingdom of Peace Is Like a Woman

The kingdom of peace is like an ordinary woman who loves life, her husband and her children, but who is always preoccupied by the many questions which create doubts and fears inside her soul.
Doubts and fears about life, her husband and her children -- to such an extent that she ends up living in a state of anguish and irritation, with a hardened heart and hurtful words.

On a day when she is feeling very sad, with a circle of questions whirling around in her head, she mechanically approaches a stream out in nature, sits down near it, and listens to its soft music. This music, through some mysterious power, moves her consciousness into her heart, opens it, and begins to talk to her and to give her all the answers.
Filled with joy, she raises her eyes and, for the first time, sees the sparkling sun, the green grass, the majestic trees; everything speaks to her of love and joy, and invites her to fullness.

In truth, I say to you, the person who lives on the surface of life can only find suffering and become a carrier of war. The external man always lives with questions, fear and unhappiness; but the inner man, who lives inside the heart, knows all the answers. Not ready-made answers which generate new questions, but living answers which lead to fullness and peace.
Only truth brings the fullness of life, and freedom.

The source of the truth lives inside your heart; and if you let its waters flow, you will find the purity of your true being and you will know peace. Fear, doubt, anguish and irritation are impurities which prevent the waters of the heart from flowing, and the true love from manifesting itself. Let your heart open up and let the waters of your heart flow; and all of the impurities will flee far away from you.

The external man cannot find the peace that he needs so much if he is cut-off from the inner man, from the heart. The inner man cannot find the fullness that he needs so much if he is cut-off from the source of the true being.
Therefore, each one is dependent upon the other; the angel of peace needs man in order to achieve peace on earth, and man needs the angel of peace in order to bring his life to fullness.

About the author

Olivier Manitara was born in France, on July 15th, 1964, in the small town of Vire, Normandy. He grew up into a consumer society where the children take refuge inside supermarkets, the last "cultural areas" of a world deprived of profound values and authentic spirituality.

Olivier Manitara will later present himself as a "child of Carrefour (the French Wal-Mart)". Never receiving any religious formation, it is while reading, at a very young age, the sacred texts of humanity that he discovers on his own the existence of a primordial Tradition that is common to every world tradition.

He will later call it the Essene Tradition, carried through all ages by the Essene People, also known as the Children of the Light, notably in the Dead Sea scrolls, discovered in Palestine in the middle of the last century.

From the youngest age, Olivier Manitara has mystical experiences and makes discoveries that tightly correspond to those of the great wise men and authentic guides of humanity who gave consistence to the universal Tradition of the Essenes.

From then on, this tradition becomes for him like a loving mother that nourishes his inner life and shows him the way to beauty, to dignity, to audacity and to greatness throughout the lives of the great Masters of the Essene Tradition such as Krishna, Buddha, Jesus, Mani…

The young Olivier does not yet realize that he is the only hope for this millennial tradition on the verge of extinction, and rightly so… The last three great representatives of the Essene Tradition: the Masters Rudolf Steiner, Peter Deunov and Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov have been wrongly persecuted and limited to no end in their actions of which the only motivation was their love for humanity and the earth and a determined will to bring back their original dignity. Olivier Manitara would be no exception to the rule and will have to confront some very hard initiations, and will vanquish them all, like all the Fathers and Mothers of the Essene Tradition had to do before him. In this fashion, he climbs all the initiatic steps toward divine mastery and becomes, in time, a Father of the Essene Tradition, a genuine Master, a guide and a benefactor for mankind.

Recognized as such by the keepers of his tradition among many cultures, in 2007 he becomes the founding Father of the Essene Nation and the world representative of the Essene People. In the year 2000, he brings a considerable contribution to the reconciliation of cultures and interreligious dialog by creating the pictorial series of Men-Gods. Throughout this universal work, all the cultural traditions are honoured and reunified to their original source. This is one of the most important humanitarian works, at a time when some intelligence would want to standardize everything and take mankind away from its true roots and profound values.

In 2006, through his alliance with the four Archangels who created the universe and inspired the creation of the greatest human civilizations, Olivier Manitara creates the Circle of the Archangels. This is the birth of a new way of being in the world, a new art of living in harmony with nature, the universe and the divine world through a universal practice, and knowledge, that completely revolutionize contemporary religion and spirituality.

This Circle of the Archangels is giving birth to a new Gospel: "the Essene Gospel of the Archangels". This Gospel marks a decisive and irreversible pivot in the Essene Tradition and the start of a new era for mankind and the world as a whole.

A foreground cultural creative, active messenger of the Proclamation for Peace recognized by UNESCO, Olivier Manitara is also a unique artist. He is the author and writer of hundreds of songs, melodies and sacred dances… Those are true masterpieces that compose links in the chain of works of the great souls who allied themselves to a divine world out of pure love for mankind and the earth; to bring there the harmony of the cosmos and balance the disharmony in which mankind is immerged. Thus, this sublime work represents a large contribution to the world heritage of Wisdom and a precious legacy for the future generations and all the world traditions.

In 2002, he creates the Energy Mandalas. This is the emergence of a new Feng Shui, totally revolutionary and perfectly adapted to our time and the occidental civilization. This new occidental Feng Shui is to be found in full achievement in the Essene Villages, true sanctuaries for Mother Earth where all the kingdoms of nature are respected and honoured for what they are: friends of mankind on the path to the evolution of consciousness and the ennoblement of the soul.

The Essene Villages, a foreground humanitarian and ecological work were also inspired by Olivier Manitara to become havens of peace and harmony in the heart of the growing and invading desert of the modern world. The Essene Villages compose the indispensable and pacific countervailing power, preserving the opportunity, that is getting ever rarer, to be able to live another life in conformation to most profound aspirations of the human being.

Thus, since the creation of the Essene Nation, Olivier Manitara travels the world to bring the good news about the possibility of another life to all those who still have the courage to get up and unite in mutual support to give birth to another future for mankind and the earth. Not only does he talk about it by transmitting the wisdom and the precious know-how of the Essene… Everywhere he goes, he concretely works to build another future by creating Essene Villages.

All around the colossal works of Olivier Manitara (author of 40 books and 150 formative works, and more than 2000 improvised conferences about the most varied subjects, reaching through all the areas around the life of mankind and that of the earth with a totally innovating point of view but still based on millennial wisdom), was created the Essenia Foundation in Canada that works for the diffusion and safekeeping of the Essene Wisdom all around the world. Recognized as a charitable organization by the Canadian government, the Essenia Foundation is a profoundly humanitarian and ecological work by its implementation of the Essene Wisdom and its concretization through the Essene Villages.
