Spiritual power - greater than justice and forgiveness

Justice is not a virtue humans practise spontaneously, which is why when Moses emphasized this virtue he greatly served their progress. Later, Jesus came to teach them love and forgiveness. But should it stop there? No, there is still a further stage to be reached, because forgiveness does not actually solve every problem. If somebody comes and attacks you, are you not allowed to be stronger than them, to seize them by the waist and lift them up and say, 'Well, do you want me to throw you to the ground?' But you don't throw them; you gently place them back on their feet. And they will have understood. Obviously, this is symbolic. What I mean is that you have to be stronger than your enemies and immobilize them with a gesture, a word or a glance. You do not mistreat them; you even help them by giving them a splendid lesson. To obtain this spiritual power, you must pray, meditate and exercise, taking the sun as your model. Who then can touch you without being burned by the contact with your heat and your light? Enemies will stay away; they will no longer dare to come near you. In the presence of spiritual power, we always have to capitulate. After justice, after love and forgiveness, human beings still have to win true power.
