"To fully understand the nature of creation: the reasons why the ego functions as it does, why created entities feel the urges they feel, it must be understood that the NATURE and QUALITY of UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS is RADIANT JOY - FULFILLMENT - HAPPINESS.
THIS IS WHAT I TERMED THE 'KINGDOM OF HEAVEN WITHIN YOU' - WITHIN YOUR SOUL - WITHIN THE DEEPEST RECESSES OF YOUR PSYCHE, which is the intermediary between the radiance of your soul and the shadow self of ego.
To return to this transcendent state of glorious, beautiful, happy, harmonious being is your soul's deepest longing!
It is this enduring longing, this inborn unconscious recollection of equilibrium and peace, joy and harmony, which, through the psyche, prompts the EGO to manipulate the environment on your behalf. Its consistent purpose is to bring you back to your primal original state of glorious ecstasy out of which you drew your soul, being and form.
But the ego can bring about your desired joy and pleasure, only by means of the two magnetic/emotional 'Bonding-Rejection' impulses - which are only materialised impulses to give you your individuality." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 6, page 9]
