On February 3, 1941, when I had just become four years old, I lived in Niederflachs, 1253, somewhat away from the small town of Bülach / ZH, which was surrounded by the Eschenmoser and Bruder mountains as well as by vast forests and extensive meadows and fields. Even then, I was driven to learn a lot and to become knowing and wise as well as modest, kind, and worthy of life. Mother and father, through their educating, led me in this direction, but Pastor Rudolf Zimmermann, the pastor of the Reformed Church of the municipality of Bülach, also played a major role, for I distinctly saw in him, in a very special measure, knowledge and wisdom as well as the virtue of modesty, but also his kindness and worthiness towards human beings and life. These conditions were the constant impetus for me to think about all these values and to develop myself in this direction, which also meant for me, however, that despite my young age, I had to learn a lot and, in fact, was also not averse to learning. I did not completely agree, however, with everything that I had to learn and that was even explained and made accessible to me. So I learned already very early on to maintain my own trains of thought in a controlled manner and to draw my own conclusions as well as make my own decisions. Through this, I also learned to separate the grain from the chaff and to seek the truth where it is fundamentally to be found, namely in one’s own inside and innermost, as well as in one’s own intellect, in one’s own rationality, one’s own thoughts, reflections, and feelings. This resulted in the recognizing and following of self-responsibility as well as the recognizing and fulfilling of the responsibility towards fellow human beings, the plant and animal world, and towards life and the creational laws and recommendations. So very soon, and even before I had become just five years old, I realized that there was still very much more than just what human beings were doing in everyday life, namely the work which, at that time, usually also dragged itself into one’s leisure time. So there was, to my knowledge, still very much more than just the instructive, educational moments and the usual learning, which is learned by the little earthly citizens in their daily lives from their peers as well as from parents, grandparents, and neighbors, etc. Thus, I also recognized that, despite my young age, I was a human being like every other human being, except that I could not yet adapt myself into the ranks of the adults because many years of growing up still separated me from that. Therefore, I also longed, together with other things, to become an adult quickly, namely in consciousness-based as well as physical and age-based matters. It quickly became clear to me, however, that I could not turn the wheel of time to make it run faster; consequently, I had to put myself in patience consciously, which also did not cause me any difficulties.
Now, it was a lukewarm night in May in the year 1941, and if I remember correctly, it was about 3 o’clock in the morning of Sunday, May 4th. In any case, that’s how everything has settled in my memory, indeed because everything that happened at that time was a special experience. I slept and dreamed that I saw my own body sleeping in the bed. Thinking about it in my sleep, I made the observation that I was actually sleeping, which somehow surprised me and moved me to wake up consciously. Somewhat sleepy, I looked out the window, through which I saw the clear, starry sky. So I got up from the bed, went to the window, and climbed out, as it was almost at ground level. Outside, I sat down on the simple bench, which stood against the wall of the house and which father had made. I could not see the moon, but the sky was clear and draped in velvety black, and millions of stars shone down from the firmament. I sat there for a few minutes, staring up at the stars as I pondered and, in thought, flew far out into the universe. But suddenly, something strange happened inside me, which would irrevocably change my whole life from the next moment on. Strangely touched, I looked at my hands and at my body and could only vaguely recognize them. So I touched my body and felt it, and then I heard my own voice saying, “My life is made out of the love of the Creation." And I could not explain why I said that and what force led me to utter those words. A light chill came over me, even though the night was quite warm, and then I noticed that I felt weird, too, but I was not frightened.
Again, I looked up at the stars and recognized that the stars were distant suns in the vast outer space and that these shone by themselves, by their own power, but these were created from the light of the love of the Creation, like everything in the whole universe. And again, words escaped from my lips, the origin of which I could not unravel, but whose meaning I was able to grasp, as with the first words: “Everything is created from the light of love." And then further words followed: “The space between the stars is empty and yet not empty, and everything that exists throughout the universe is a living being – everything is a creation and the Creation itself." The words that came from my own mouth penetrated deeply into me, and I realized in them that the true source of life is the light of the true creational love, which creates all life in all its liveliness and holds within itself all laws and recommendations of creational order and all information about life and death.
I realized that the light that the stars emitted was a light in the visible, but the light of true love remained invisible, creationally and for all-great-time. And yet, there were the beaming stars, which excited in me an unusual longing for vast distance and for distant worlds. Then words suddenly formed on my lips again, saying, “Since primeval times, you have lived among the stars," and suddenly, I knew who I was, how I am, and what my task is on this earth. And suddenly, impulses came from somewhere, which I later recognized as impulses from the storage-banks, and many good memories penetrated into me and showed me the way that I had to go in my life. So I also suddenly knew what space and time mean in terms of the evolution of the human being and all things and what the real meaning of life is, in which the human being must create true love, peace, freedom, knowledge, harmony, and wisdom. And there awakened the cognition of this, that no life and no other things at all could exist in the universe, if not for the true BEING, the Creation, directing everything by its love as well as its laws and recommendations. Through this, I realized then as a little boy that life becomes the power of the Creation, the highest might, which created and sustains the universe and everything that is in it.
This is all of that which became conscious to me that night, as a little boy who was just four years old. Everything that exists in the whole universe is a manifestation of the might and the infinite and true love of that enormous Universal Consciousness, which is simply called the Creation. And together with it, the Creation, is all creation, which has been created by it – everything that exists, creeps, or flies in all things universe-wide. True love, however, as well as the true love of the Creation itself, of which I became aware, is a form of unfathomably radiating light, the ZOHAR, which permeates everything and allows all life and all existence to pulsate. So true love is, therefore, light, which in turn perceives light and endlessly radiates further and never finds an end, but always continues to accumulate. And this love is also existent and recognizable in all matter, but also in the human being, in whom it is given by the creational spirit in him and which he just must let grow in himself, in his interior and exterior, whereby the true love again reflects true love and creates harmony. This true love is the reality, but not all that the human being gains from illusions and unreal dreams, which he can never realize, because they, just like smoke, only obscure his view and do not allow him to recognize what true love actually is and what he himself is, in reality, within the universal driving mechanism of the Creation. The shroud, the body of the human being, is, in fact, inconstant and transient, but the true love of creational nature – which is anchored in his true inner being, in the spirit – is pure light of BEING and is imperishable.

This great cognition, already at the age of four, abruptly changed my life, for after I was familiarized with this insight and understanding through the impulses from the storage-banks and also learned who I really was, what I had to learn and do in life, and what my life’s task was, I looked at the human beings, the animals, and nature, as well as all existing things in a completely new way, and I suddenly felt a great astonishment in me about what I had just discovered. I suddenly saw myself in everything – in every fellow human being, in every flower or other plant, in every tree and shrub, in every animal, in the snow, in the water, in the earth, in lightning and thunder, in the clouds, in the wind, and in the sunshine, for everything was and is connected in true creational love and forms a oneness that can never be separated. Even life and death are interwoven therein and are inseparably intertwined with one another. And it was precisely through this connectedness that it immediately became clear to me, that everything is intermingled and interconnected in infinitely different ways, whereby myriads of manifestations of life and existences were created, exist, and continue to be created.
In a few moments, I understood everything. I was excited with joy, and peace and harmony spread within me, but also the deepest veneration and modesty before the creational immenseness in unending true love. Days and years later, I tried to explain to my parents and neighbors all that had arisen in me that night, as I had a very great need to report and to explain what I had gained in cognition. I could hardly wait to inform my fellow human beings about this, but it was not granted to me to be able to do this. There were simply no words for me, with which I could have explained myself, and there were no human beings who understood what I was trying to explain to them as a little boy. So I tried in vain to pass on my experiences and my cognitions, but nobody understood what I actually meant. My parents, relatives, neighbors, teachers, and other fellow human beings only saw how I changed more and more, yet they did not perceive that my eyes and my voice emitted something that was foreign to them. They noticed only that I became more and more modest and that I condemned nothing and no one and that I always gave what I could give. I became a human being who was no longer the same as the others – one still young in age but already old in his cognitions. I could understand my fellow human beings well and could give good advice even to elderly people, for which they were very grateful. But no one was able to understand me, except Pastor Rudolf Zimmermann. Some believed that I was a loner, others compared me to a sage, but no one understood what was actually going on inside me, what kind of thoughts and feelings were in me, or what my real desire was: to be able to convey my cognition and my knowledge to the human beings in an understandable manner.
My thoughts led me to the cognition that actually every single human being should see himself in his fellow human beings, as I saw myself in all other human beings, but nobody thinks to do this. Every human being lives only for himself and for his own well-being, unless he associates himself with another in some feeling-based or emotional love – or perhaps actually in true love. So it became clear to me that I had to be incumbent upon my task and dedicate my life to giving to the human beings for understanding and to teaching them that they dream surreally, namely without consciousness and without realizing who and what they really are and for what purpose they eke out their lives here on the earth. So the human being must learn to recognize himself and not to hide behind fog and smoke and believe that life can thereby be lived successfully and progressively. Therefore, let this word be said: It is very easy to go through life without perception and with closed eyes and to disregard and misunderstand everything that is still seen, nevertheless, out of the corner of one’s eye.
Only the human being who fulfills life,
Who does not wrap himself in smoke and fog,
Will one day gain happiness and victory,
And win true love of the human beings.
