PILGRIMAGE TO SPIRITUAL LIFE
life unlike religion life or sect life commits man to nothing but the
of the Father and his Good deep within himself. Because of
this the concept of spiritual life seems indistinct to the current
which does not like indistinction. This explains why people mistakenly
about us as a religion or a sect.
Spiritual life is what people come and get in Arès.
A lot of differences, provided that they are associated with Good, are swallowed up in spiritual life,
so that an Arès Pilgrim, whose life is spiritual, can read the Bible
the Veda and other books with no embarrassment for the blending, and
consider The Revelation of Arès as
of what they all have which is true.
Anyhow, it is not in the texts that salvation
is found, but in life slanting to Good,

Pilgrim does not see them. Our missionaries know well that it is hard

life. They are everyday life for an Arès Pilgrim. Spiritual life is not

A fact established: Evil (23/10, 39/3) or
the beast (2214), an offspring of
humanity (seen as global under the name of Adam,
2/1-5), meets with less and less barriers and even ends up
regarded as a
norm with its normativers (princes of
religion, of politics, of
2/9-17, 4/9, etc., white king and black
king, xxxvi/14, etc.),
A fact to establish: Good, an
offspring of God, which humanity will recover through a single action: penitence. In other words, humanity
cannot elude the sin of sins (38/2), which
is the definitive decline to the animality before
Adam (vii/1), but through penitence,
can lead it back to the Day (XX/xx) when
the garden of Eden will blossom
and even death will be conquered.
Revelation of Arès,
as the whole Scripture, if it is correctly read, goes against the
rationalistic, political, and even religious because religion,
whatever, is fixed
in dogmas, but the enormous strength of The
Revelation of Arès is that it has a lot to do with
philosophy, which is
continuous research, that is, a movement not only of the mind but also
I have never ceased to lay stress on the existentialism of The Revelation of Arès. But an
existentialism for what kind of
existence? For that the apotheosis of which will be the Day,
certainly very remote, but which from today onwards builds up,
develops a movement towards that Day, therefore,
but a movement that has an immediate result: Salvation.
The fact established: Evil, our
invention, will ruin the world through stagnation and fixedness.
The fact to be established: Good,

escape Evil; a movement of penitence that,as it is, can yield salvation by itself.
movement has to start. We have to make our way or path
from the established fact to the fact to establish, from the
human to his or her Creator's image and
likeness (Genesis 1/26-27).
The driving force of the movement from Evil
to Good is penitence,
but the link from the former to the latter can be called
Heracleitus, who lived twenty-six centuries ago, is taken for an
he was simply not religious just as we Pilgrims of Arès are not
religious. He saw
the Creator just as the Book shows
him: I still run and I make a thousand
new suns (Rev of Arès xxii/12), always on the move.
Heracleitus used the
Greek word logos —untranslatable, because it has three meanings:
"speech" and "reason"— to write without punctuation this: "The
logos \ what is always \ men are unable to understand it."
To Heracleitus the world had to be permanently on the move, in a
state of flood or constant evolving, and we are today aware that this
is what The Revelation of Arès

fixednesses and their dogmas and through penitence

It is in the triple meaning of logos : "word",
"speech" and "reason", that we have to read the famous prologueof
John, whose gospel is not a Word of
(Rev of Arès 16/12), but is already
philosophical development: " In the beginning was the Logos, and the
was with God, and the Logos was God."
The substantial Word
of God was conceived as his Reason that created the world and
marked the human thought.
Even in the 2d century the Christian writers who were called
their best to present the greco-roman minds with the Christian faith in
they could agree with, used the word Logos to have the pagans
they had had a part of the Logos, which had been expressed by their
philosophers, but that Jesus gave them the missing part. Notably
Christian philosopher and martyr, wrote: "The ones who before Jesus'
lived a Life that came with reason
(logos) are already Christians, even though they were taken for
Socrates, Heracleitus and others." May I digress for a moment to remind
that Justin died flogged dead by the pagans while saying to them that
wrecked the very raison d'être of their faith, because real faith can

is why the penitence, that The Revelation of Arès is about, is no
remorse, no atonement or return to oneself, but on the contrary is a
forward in joy and celebration

restore love, forgiveness, peace, spiritual intelligence and freedom,

This is why penitence is the fruit

An important development is to be realized between what the earliest
monks used to call philosophia and what The
Revelation of Arès, although it does not use the word,
inspires its reader
as a philosophy.
"I die every day," the earliest Christians
think and nowadays we think, "I live every day again." Ever since
Plato's days it has been a matter of going beyond practical life and
spiritual life, but only Christianity has been able, in the beginning,
popular masses take up this way of living. Which explains why Nietzsche
"Christianity is just a Platonism for popular masses." ("Beyond
good and evil"). In other words, The
Revelation of Arès adds the ideal of our association with the
through penitence to the sudden
emergence of spiritual life in Jesus' preaching.
Life of faith is life of the soul,
by penitence and immortal.
We do not have to withdraw from earthly life, but we have to combine

a lot have had faith in The Revelation of
Arès already, but have taken it personally. They deep down
acknowledge the divine origin of the Word, or at least its high logical
but they draw upon it optimism more often than faith, the sort of
trust one draws upon a blue sky in fine weather. To some The
Revelation of Arès is heavenly, to others it is just vital or
invigorating, just the adjuvant to other ideologies. Some of them,
not conceal from themselves the fact that in The
Revelation of Arès believing
(1/5-7, 33/3, 12/6, 32/1, 38/7, xiii/12) necessarily goes
with changing one's life (6/1, 30/11, 28/7),
that changing one's life for the
better saves from evil even though
believing is impossible. They
now and then act penitent
(16/4, 28/25, 30/10, etc.). When
they happen not to fear the judgment of others, they may think of loving,
forgiving, making peace and even
sometimes showing spiritual intelligence (32/5)
and being free (10/10) from
prejudices. A few of them give the eldest
brother (16/1) their support.
But the others, the small remnant

me, who are penitents and harvesters, and
whom I call Arès
So many points the Arès Pilgrims wonder about!
Like the abiding points of real piety,
penitence, the harvest,
the assembly, etc.
Like deculturation, which I have brought up in the entry 126.
Like the point not yet exhausted, over which I will be back further, "What
tells an Arès Pilgrim from the
rest of believers?" A point that whoever changes
his or her life and strives to harvest
humans likely to change
their lives is forever making his or her awareness keener.
What type of society shall we encourage our fellowmen to? "We Believe,
Do Not Believe" (The Revelation of
Arès, ed. 1995, Appendices) says : "We believe that
the changed world (Rev of Arès 28/27)
to a spiritual context, but not a world economically, socially defined
to man beforehand…" I have put forward the hope, relevant to the whole
context of The Revelation of Arès,
that political borders could disappear and men be freely strewn into
units ("Ce que je crois, Ce que j'affirme" §72) according to their
natures, talents, vocations and the types of happiness they would look
the members of a small unit can live harmoniously in virtue
and happiness and
manage themselves of one accord without mass law = law
of the rats (Rév d'Arès xix/24). Mankind will avoid
and complete idiocy and then extinction only by scattering into
of miscellaneous types, each being absolutely free
inwardly, all bordering on each other, allowing the free
movement and settling of men
throughout them and having a single common characteristic: Good.
It is in reminding that Good is
the objective and the tool of penitence
(Rev of Arès 30/11), the only path
to Salvation and Life
found again (Rev of Arès 24/5), that I lay stress on our
position within the world chorus of the many forms of faith and
I have now and then lamented over our "social mission" (or
"moral mission", or "philosophical mission"), the old desert-colored
coat, so much comfier, just
as all old togs are, while we were delaying putting on the new
coat (Rev of Arès 1/1). But why
conceal our hearts this way? Why
keep the absolute Source buried (24/4)?
Why hide penitence like it was
shameful and unable to cure (4/5, 30/4,
33/13) man of greed, arrogance, stupidity, anger, violence
and death? Why
refrain from reminding man that he will never escape evil through some
a philosophy, or a science, or policies, not even through a religion,
he is, just as the foal is born free from
any harness (10/10), considerably
freer to get away from
the system, from evil,
suffering and death, by
being born again in the image and
likeness of his Creator (Genesis
in the absolute dawn of primeval spiritual life?
Why even conceal The Revelation of
Arès within the scope of a mission devoted to The
Revelation of Arès, and so lapse into absurdity as well as
Why ? This might admittedly have been out of fear of the
world, but this might
be because the Reason The Revelation of
Arès shows prompted some brothers to rationalize it
altogether. The Revelation of Arès
is a language of
Reason; it is by no means the heated passional translation of texts
preserved by men's emotional memory before they were written down like
and the Quran. The tone of Reason of The
Revelation of Arès, very new to our culture used to the
emotional faith of
religions, has led some Arès Pilgrims to rationalize it so much that
forgot that the Father's Reason

Why ? Because the Arès Pilgrim's faith, even though it is tied
up with God

like a fairy tale to rationalists, does not follow down the emotional
faith of religion.
It is therefore regarded by opinion makers as non-spiritual,

This is also a way of stating the Core
of The Revelation of Arès.

whipped men like horses drawing the wagon of fatality, which exists but

what a changed world (28/7), a
without culture is going to be, but it emerges from The
Revelation of Arès that it is going to be
a process of diversifying in free
harmony, but no mere evolution in the harness
of a new culture.
Deculturation is very slow, of course. Repenting generations
and repenting generations will pitch camp on the
desert (24/4) or vacuum (23/5,
xxxi/4) of culture. Deculturation is imperceptibly getting
however. A faithful of a church or a religion lives on faith, follows a
culture, never gets out of it. An Arès Pilgrim definitely unlike the

like Abraham or Jesus, two great decultured men. Every day a penitent
prepares his own salvation,
but he also gets a bit of the
world out of the bog of culture, which has been sinking it down to the
sin of sins, the point of no-return of evil. Every

from himself. His deculturation goes on and the next generations are to
on with it until they stop measuring man's acts by the yardstick of
of the "intellectually correct" and of laws, but measure them by the
yardstick of love.
Deculturation will reverse a
lot of values of culture. Property for example. For millennia culture
property a nagging problem so much so that man is the property of
money more than the opposite. This is one of the least tragic aspect of
vacuum which culture is. Deculture will stop the perpetual leak of
between man's fingers. Property, as it is as peculiar to man as his flesh,
his soul (Rev of Arès
17/7), love, freedom, inventiveness, is to be forever, but
built up on property ideologies, like the right-wing one and the
left-wing one nowadays,
which have brought about much hatred, many fights, at times many
deaths, and have
not provided and will never provide global happiness; This is the very
meaning of the parable of the camel and
the needle eye (Matthew 19/24), which is absurd to lay stress

Culture of vacuum? The grasping
has a bank account which, even when filled, looks always vacuum
to him. He will spend a lifetime operating the riches pump
and will miss the sublime destiny of a man made
God (2/12).The ascetic is generally thought of as the
opposite, but his life, even when filled with privation, looks always
him. He will spend a lifetime operating the harshness pump and will
miss the sublime
destiny of a man made God (2/12). These
are two extreme types
of vacuum culture disciples, but I
multiply the types along the scale of shades and by this puzzling,
demonstration remind that the Path
towards Life and Happiness
is elsewhere, in absolute freedom
(10/10), the only way out of vacuum.
Some men say they are in pursuit of ideals and go from a religion, a
philosophy, a politic, to another, but they do not change. They move
culture like over a billiard balls which do nothing but strike
and make noises (ii/7-13, vii/4-16, etc.).
We Arès Pilgrims are out of the billiard, so we are never invited to
play it. This
is our grandeur. This is also one of the great difficulties our mission
with in the world.
Last January 15th, a mission of ours in France kept open
house on the
"Jesus' return". A visitor sat down by me and said, "You've never read
"Atheology" by Michel Onfray, I imagine…" I said, "Yes,
I did, I've read that book of frightening, erudite, rationalistic
He outraged said, "Propaganda?" I said, ""Honest sensible
people have inwardly or outwardly experienced Someone Else. The man
that much erudition to treat them like dreamy or deranged or villainous
is but a propagandist. Nazis likewise used to display science
against Jews and so did Soviets against all believers."
"Michel Onfray is a highly
cultured writer." I replied, "Exactly. Onfray is not a man of
knowledge, but one of culture. Culture is a glue which sticks men to
fixations, invariable values, so we Arès Pilgrims strive to unstick
them, set them free (10/10, 28/20)."
He looked me
up and down. I added, "Well, now you can easily define us as just the
opposite of Michel Onfray. Have you read The
Revelation of Arès?" He exclaimed, "But no! That's a book to
drive one nuts!" I said, "No,
that book makes you think. It decultures you." He got up and went out.
short heated exchange shows that there is no doubt but The
Revelation of Arès is one of the very scarce great times of
History when God appears and upsets all.
Deculturation is still an issue both misunderstood,
fundamental. In the missionary action we have not enough developed it.
people incline to regard The Revelation
of Arès as an alternative to religion, but it is not. It
assigns to faith a
quite different dynamic. It is a great leap towards another Creation,
the Creator makes man his co-creator.

It is hardly surprising that we have entered an economic crisis and
dramatic economic shake-ups. China has outstripped Japan, the ex-leader

climatic warming, a damaging factor to agriculture?
The Western economic decline began about thirty year ago and has
quickened. Hence the enormous loans taken by the Western nations, so as
on dreaming that they are still rich and forever have the most enviable
industries and social welfares. The big problem in Europe, particularly
France where God came back down to speak to mankind, is the refusal to
slow fall and inevitable insecurity of materialism.
Our economic decline is not a cyclical one, but a structural one, that

even solve a lot of the expected problems. But what can princes
make but laws?
We understand the urgency better, which the Father put in The
Revelation of Arès, the insistence
with which he in 1974 denigrated
the princes of the religious religion,
those of the political religion and those of the
money religion. His denigration seemed
questionable then, not that urgent anyway; things were not that bad on
the population of which was just over 4 billion.
But the time has come to make a big effort, not only go through the
to look for and harvest the nice
hearts ready to be penitent, change their
lives (Rev of Arès 30/11), find
salvation? We also have to go through the streets to make
people aware that changing
their lives is contributing
to an urgency: changing the world (Rev
of Arès) 28/7, saving it.

indeed, but it

Our mission is right here; it has its say!.
Politics is totally absorbed in socio-legalistic

bio-spiritual entirety, but it asks the opinions of experts,
“lead caps” as Rimbaud would say. Any political decision is based on a
sociologic and legalistic not anywhere near the real, because the real
called non-observable and consigned to oblivion.
The Revelation of Arès recues the
real from oblivion into which it stuffs the
rats’ law (Rev of Arès xix/24) and the glosses
(Rev of Arès 10/10) of the doctors religious, political
ideologic —The Father does not distinguish between them.
Even when they deal with hardships and injustices, governments and
their lookouts (Rev of Arès xLv/10-22)are
in their thought and speech like the chattering parrot
or the mooing cow (xxxv/2). Any
kind of politics postulates that man is like the
strong beautiful gander in its cage, which it force-feeds (a
force-feeding to become difficult) so
that it stays quiet, keeps on not having
the egg (xxxvi/3) of absolute

ascent (7/2, 25/6, 26/6-9, etc) to real happiness,
that which man earns through penitence
(36/23, 37/9), but not happiness allegedly due, as
political speeches claim it is.
The Revelation of Arès has many ways of stating that basic
man is morally much
better, also much more capable of his destiny, than the technocrats say
he is. The Revelation of Arès urges
us to give
up the social contract that gets us shackled to politics, religion,
turn to a natural spiritual social contract, which we have to get
and accepted, because even the believers, ever left weak
(Rev of Arès 36/5) and short-sighted, have kept stuck in the
idea that it is unworkable. We have to proclaim
with two teeth (Rev of Arès xxxi/17), that is, twice as
louder, night and
day proclaim (xLviii/1-3), that God
has come back to say that that natural spiritual social contract is
even though it will take more than four
generations (24/2). This is the Core
of our mission (28/7).
Men are potential Gods (Rev of Arès 2/13,

Revelation of Arès has struck the time for them to choose.
will make them fall back into animality, maybe irreversibly —the
sin if sins (38/2 , but
penitence will make them recover the
Father’s image and likeness.

death has lasted one day, the head rests on the sweet flowers...
two days, you shout, "Death is a trap!"...
(But) if the hand holds My Hand,... the Water remains in the eye.
(The Revelation of Arès xL/13-16)
around 05:00am, on beginning my morning prayer, I intensely thought of
that had died under tragic circumstances.
Something from her fell onto
a cold cloud of bitterness and misgivings.
That pathetic cloud
confirmed me in a feeling I had had for years on end in doing
mortification for deceased people. The dead do not
necessarily find God in
the beyond. They take away there what they made of themselves in this
world. The unbelieving living turn into unbelieving dead,
but if they here below did not take abomination to its
extreme (Rev of Arès 33/32-34), they can evolve spiritually.
I embraced the sorrowful presence and talked to it, "Sister, you cannot
see him, but please don’t
have doubts about God’s existence! He sent out his messenger to me in

to stay until the angel bearing a light
comes and leads you out of the dreary void
(xL/15), is that the Creator’s existence is no more obvious
to freshly dead
people than it is to billions of terrestrials of long standing.
I felt her go attentive, so I continued, "Just think! You can still

own flesh here — This is what we

since you were not a nasty person.
Think, so you’re going to know that the Father exists. He exists,

that everything, except our human
destinies which he has let
us use just as we like, depends upon
I felt her next to me. I said, "Let’s pray together. This is how I will
pray. You have no flesh anymore for
the proskinesis, to feel under your knees and hands Earth that the

for you. You
will later on blend your piety with space; they’ll be at one
other. Then, only then, you will feel the logical Strength,
thanks to Which
you will be outliving your death until you live again some Day
(Rév d’Arès 31/8)"
Not only is death not forever — on the Father’s Day,
the advent of which depends on the living corporeal men’s penitence,
and perhaps specters
will return into the bones and ashes…
which will put themselves together (Rev of Arès 31/11-12) —,
but I insist death can meanwhile be an evolutionary state.
Death of the flesh is an anomaly
to global sin. The human race
once created in God’s image
and likeness (Genesis 1/26-27),
created to live eternally therefore (Rev
of Arès vii/5), turned mortal, because Adam decided on a life
love and the body out (Rev of Arès 2/5), the
compulsion of which he passed down to his descendants. Ever since then
and, either as a soul or as a specter,
he survives in an ocean of
unbounded space like a castaway who, even though he perceives the
living, he can only see them from a distance, but can’t reach and speak
until the unpredictable time when, if he is a soul,
he blends in with the Father’s
Universe (Rev of Arès 12/4) where the
hourless worlds revolve like fish in His Water (Rev of Arès vi/3).
This is why to pray for the dead is of no use. But to pray along with
of use during the trap (Rev of Arès
xL/14) period, which is unpredictably either very short or
very long, when
a dead man whatever is looking for his vanished flesh
and the corporeal men are being able to help him through mortification.
can pray along with the
dead because they continue and sometimes begin their true
piety (35/6). We humans still complete with flesh,
mind and soul (Rev of Arès 17/7) cannot love and help, unless
we can speak, touch, grasp and cherish.
After the passage
or trap (xL/14) period the
living one cannot do anything for those who move away.
A living one and a dead one have something in common is: He or she sucks
his or her strength from the Fathers

that all comes from and under one way or another.

our faith's strange isolation and afference
fateful facts in History are not proportionate to their surface areas:
Greece very small and sparsely populated put its political, artistic,
philosophical mark on the vast Western civilization, and the very small
people was the root of huge monotheism: Judaism, Christianity, Islam.
Likewise, the move of some generally accepted ideas towards ideas
by The Revelation of Arès reveals
that it has perceptibly put its mark on the world's life spiritual as
ethical, already, and that it will not leave it at that.
The Arès Pilgrims however have just formed a
very small bowl of Water, and even
it is not as clear (Rev
Arès xLix/6) as it should be, in the dark large lake of
Nevertheless, the current stemming from The
Revelation of Arès has a peculiarity: its afference*, in
contrast with the previous great currents' efference*.
In the old days,
currents of fateful importance like that grown up from Moses, that
from Jesus, that grown up from Muhammad and other currents arose and
as local brotherly concentrations, and then scattered definitely later;
The prophetical current grown up out of The
Revelation of Arès is opposite. It is afferent, because The
Revelation of Arès was first read
and sort of arose in a public distant and scattered. Bookselling,
and lately the Internet have strangely made up a great number of remote
starting points. A scattering that strangely was by a long way easier
preaching on the spot. A disavantage or an adventage — it's up to us to
decide on it — the
great dispersion of the Arès Pilgrims will be lasting God knows how
before it ends up in important confluences or mergings through reverse
propagation. Hence loneliness for most of us except for a few
here and there are lucky enough to share their active faith.
Penitence, piety and harvesting

isolation and happen to be very
difficult to some of us like the ones who live in circles or families
hostile to their faith. The very loose network made of scattered
people, by which the Aresian faith began and is still developing,
explains why a
good many Arès Pilgrims have not really sided with me, have understood
Word in a different way, in short, do not belong in the small
remnant, that I am sent
to rally (Rev of Arès 24/2).
To the Arès Pilgrims that belongs in the small
remnant isolation is a twofold pain. Not only does it make penitence
hard, but also it is a spiritual anomaly very
paradoxical as regards salvation
in The Revelation of Arès, contrary
the salvation preached by religion, is fundamentally collective,
because Truth is that the world has to change
of Arès 28/7).
The stress put on collective salvation
is not the least of the many characteristics — free
faith (10/10), faith of achievement
(35/6), but not faith of words, of law or of supplication,
the fact that
there are no gloss or dogma (10/10) and
(16/1),free piety, etc —which resolutely part Aresian faith
from religious faith, Jewish, Christian, Muslim or other.
The lonesome penitent, who
dreams of collective penitence but
cannot experience it in this generation, suffers even more from having
to harvest the penitents
of a world in which the faithful of all religions
as the atheists live out their individualistic convictions
After all a lot of Arès might well not be suffering from that
isolation as I am suffering myself. I may be overrating the
the link between the penitent's salvation
and the (human) race's salvation, although
the link corresponds exactly to love for
the neighbor as the only revealed civilization basis. Am I a

I am suffering from isolation in the prophetic sense, existentially.

typically cultural reaction and thought that The
Revelation of Arès and faith alone would do.
I would have liked that we could share our lives
to know each other
well and share our efforts with a view to optimum prophetic
effectiveness, if not
in a continuous sharing of efforts, which is impossible, at least as
and systematically as possible. I had thought of my brothers and
sisters as waterwheel
buckets drawing in turns from me the Water,
the well (b’hair xxvi/7) of which
Father had made me. On the idea of a waterwheel (or noria) the "Falcons House" project was based in the 80s.
As the "Falcons House"
couldn’t come into existence", I have since then striven to make up by
writing and publishing all
that I have been unable to give by sharing my life with my brothers’
writing leaves only words behind, while the real faith awakened by The
Revelation of Arès calls for actual good,
life of achievement, one of the characteristics that
dissociates us from
religion. A religion, whatever, is a religion of words, while an Arès
faith is real-life faith, one of actual penitence
and harvesting of penitents.
The Arès Pilgrim’s isolation has been made worse
disintegration of modern
social life. Nowadays, each individual emotionally, if not actually,
from his neighbor and designs his life all by himself. Even if they are
dissatisfied with isolation, which rivalry in the struggle for careers,
grants, and television which pins down eyes to the screen help develop,
all of modern
people unconsciously end up considering calamitous individualism
as a piece of progress.
All of powers religious, political, commercial, have encouraged the
man’s capacity for isolation, which enable them to divide and rule
easier and easier. Which after all is said and done is the reason why
my "Falcons House" project could
not get achieved. The scattered atoms cannot yet all by themselves converge on one and the same
matter , one body (Genesis 2/24),
(Rev of Arès 2/13). The
each of them being still a prisoner of his own ego, did not realize
could never group together as long as they are not free
— they tended to take the opposite view instead —, insomuch
being absolutely free (Rev of Arès 10/10)
is the vital act most typical of the Creator, whose image
and likeness is still lying deep down all of them.
But please don’t read those lines as if they were pessimistic. Read
realistic lines! We are being scattered and this is the state and the
that it forces on us with and in which we have to be successful. If we
henceforth do not think considering this reality, we cannot innovate in
anything, find out what has not yet been in History. Isn’t it the way
we will slow down and then stop History, the
Beast (Rev of Arès 22/14)?

the Spring (Rev of Arès 24/4. It
it not up to the Father, but it is
to the son to decide on his
destiny freely (10/10). The
believer’s freedom is based on effort,
it is a construction
(17/4, 18/1-3), but an existential absolute one.
In other words, salvation is
certain only when it results from
deliberate choice and action. The gratuitous gift of Mercy
— Do not foster (men’s) weakness by alluding to my Mercy at every
turn (Rev of Arès 16/15) — is possible, but contingent,
will never affect the
masses — the world (28/7).
Is the salvation through
penitence only accessible to superior
men, an elite ? No. Every one of men can achieve
because in this field nothing is quantitative or measurable. Your salvation
does not depend on the level
of good you reach, but of your will
to overcome the despondency to
it (Rév d'Arès 13/8).
To religion salvation means post-mortem reward
granted in return for a
faith put in religion’s dogmas and ritual practice.
To The Revelation of Arès the
of salvation is different,
and gradual, notably because salvation
is going to gain strength over evil in the living world from
generation to generation (Rev of Arès 24/2), but on the
hand an extensive and much more generous meaning. It is the ascent
(Rev of Arès 7/2, 25/6, 38/5) toward good and
over evil here below as well as in the afterlife
good man, even an unbeliever (28/4 & 11). It is the ascent
that, under the preponderating
influence of a small remnant of penitents
harvested from generation
to generation is to end up transfiguring the world on the Day
Light covers everything continuously (31/8) and Life
restored. Man is the architect of God’s Salvation
for himself and of God’s Victory (10/7) over global
evil, the Beast (22/14).
Whoever has ears to listen will understand even
what is said
here in human
words unable to describe the transcendental Truth.

pensive, rubbed his chin and then replied to me, «No! Joan’s ideas are

farther. Just as you Brother
Michel say at times, "Faith can’t be sold like washing powder or
not by a show that God will break through the citadel
of indifference. It is by your penitence,
your human touch, but not by anything else.”
I belong in a tiny minority of believers, the ones called Arès

Europe thirty-seven years after The
Revelation of Arès had appeared, they are men of hope, bound
to take up a
place more and more important in the ascent
of the ethical, spiritual aspirations toward the Saint’s
Heights. The most compelling proof of this is the
occurrence in speeches, religious, political and intellectual, of
some of them literal, based on The
Revelation of Arès.
What sort of utopia is The Revelation of
Arès expressive of?
Not only has man been conceived as capable of living in free
society (Rev of Arès
10/10), that is a society selfreduced to little communities
well as interfertile, without frontiers, without princes
of the cult whether political, or religious, or economic,
without princes of dominant
and reasons, and without any law
that of consciousness, but also it is on this condition of freedom
that the soul
(the image and likeness of the
Creator, Gen esis 1/26-27) will
blossom again in man, who will recover happiness and even eternity (Rev
of Arès 35/3) as a
result of his penitence (or search for
Seemingly this utopia is not really new, but The
Revelation of Arès’s way of
expounding it changes it into
something that can be done, because whatever is utopian from
reason becomes feasible from faith (faith
makes mountains move, Matthew 17/20).
The Revelation of Arès takes
account of facts like race, culture, difference between men. Just as
long ago, The Revelation of Arès
and for all says goodbye to the old Bible’s categorial considerations,
have regrettably made religious rivalries: Judaism, Christianity,
economic rivalries, big ownerships. The
Revelation of Arès alterglobalizes all much better than
ideologues do, because it is neither for the Left nor for the Right,
religious nor rationalistic, neither political nor libertarian, but it
alterglobalization a universal spiritual basis, in which any man of
can see himself.
This implies that an Arès Pilgrim, a brother
or sister belonging in the small remnant,
is not required to
address a human category of limited spirit. An Arès Pilgrim addresses
mankind. Even though he or she is well aware that with things as they
are he or
she can harvest only a small number
of active penitents he or she

expanses in the springtime, but can only pick a small handful of them,
fragile, which he moreover will have much trouble preserving. Small
remnant does not designate
believers confident of their virtue protecting themselves from external
confusion and mediocrity, but only penitents
and apostles willing to listen to The
Revelation of Arès, but conscious that they are still
belonging in those
external confusion and mediocrity.
Hence my reluctance to think in terms of identity ever since 1974-1977.
I am an
Arès Pilgrim, but I am just a man —
man Michel (Rev of Arès 1/1, 2/20, 3/9,
etc.) —in the universal sense that the Father
of the Universe (12/4) has given my humanity, my humanity
which yearns for Good, for happiness instead
of the hardships
(37/9) of my earthly crawl and for Life
(24/3-5). Here is one of the big difficulties of our mission:
Is there any
remarkable identity in the fact of hoping for Good,
wanting to be a free
soul, looking for good Life?
common words do not make up one of the very noticeable trademarks or
very much to today’s masses’s taste. This is why we have to name
a strong word drawn
from the Word of Arès,
which distinguishes us from other people very well, if we make sure
rings joyfully: penitents.
All of social designations: Socialists, UMP (a
Catholics, Muslims, etc., have more or less quickly become static; they
longer designate societies of the future, but frames of mind. A society
future whatever has to move continuously. To us harvesting means
searching for new
penitents, but it is much
more, it is
beginning to build another world, it is a spiritual, therefore human
of the highest nobleness and universality.
Universality… because we know that, on the one hand, if Joan Baez and
talent and fame could not bring our mission out of obscurity, on the
a line of missionary arguments encapsulated in The
Revelation of Arès would be insufficient to change
the world (Rev of Arès 28/7).
Doesn’t prophethood have the difficult job of making the Word readable
impious, or lost, or indifferent mankind? God’s Word can’t be
negociated (Rev of Arès 15/6),
indeed, and that is
why we missionaries first of all announce it, but if we carefully
listen to how
our human brothers respond to it (see entry 115), it is because their
is not always so much far removed from our thought as it sounds at
first and we
can now and then build bridges between the world’s thoughts and our
across which the action that will change
the world will pass some day. We do not negociate our faith,
but we do not
shut ourselves away fearfully in our Aresian identity context.
Hard is our mission! It is hard to stay on in the Truth!
But we will eventually manage to be what we have
to become: true penitents.

necessity of penitence, if i do not
open my ears and
heart to him as much as I open my mouth ? Whoever speaks about
so hard an
issue, but does not listen, cannot be heard, because The
Revelation of Arès is a deconstruction of religion, so that
at first sounds like it cancelled all necessity for membership. Now, it
not deny the Christian ideal of an apostolic college, the small remnant (24/1), because penitents
cannot act for themselves and the world if they are not in consistency
collective. There is no doubt but The
Revelation of Arès is deconstruction, but it does not
abolish faith, it turns
faith to values non-dogmatic, but selfsacralizing, the joy
and festive spirit of personal tranfiguration or penitence (Rev of Arès 30/11), which
alone redeems and saves, and which requires all the more mutual help
because it is free (10/10) and is
given from outside, not given by religion, not given as an
grace ». This change of life (30/11,
another term for penitence) is
of man’s nature and innards such as they express themselves before ever

is why a missionary listens to the man expressing himself, that

But the line of Truth, which is
is rarely enough to awaken a dormant penitent
and harvester. In the modern world, crisscrossed
by all possible sorts of ideas like by barren
rockslides, the sleep of the potential penitents
and harvesters is so deep and
composite that in a way it is mineral (Rev
of Arès 14/1). The line of Truth
has to be extended by a line of intelligence
(35/5) arduous and long, that of a stone
cutter. We have to cut out a new Arès Pilgrim from the rock
in which he stood dormant, so that the Father can use him or
her for the world’s redeeming.

would be religious. Now, we are not a religion. We are spiritual
liberators (10/10), we liberate all
sorts of humans
over all sorts of cultural ethical fields. Consequently, our mission is
only one of transmission of ideas, as genuine as they can be since they
originated from the Creator, but it is a field of rewarding brooding
missionaries as well as their audience.
The missionary’s arduousness does not lie in the trouble and effort to
all that his listener believes and does so as to make him or her an
Pilgrim, because an Arès Pilgrim is not necessarily a believer that has
his or her roots. The arduousness lies in a patient pursuit of the
that can link the listener’s moral legacy and different behavior with
the achievement of Good,
that is, actual penitence.
Man is miserable, suffers and dies, each religion
contends, because this is
the irreversible human condition , and man can only gain charity and
this world and salvation in the next world through the faith and piety
prescribed by it. No, The Revelation of Arès
retorts, man is miserable because he has created evil and because evil

timetable — do not save in themselves ; victory over evil and
not virtual, but in Good achieved (Rev of
Arès 35/6), it makes itself a reality from penitent
