„Suddenly in the night I woke up with the full awareness of what we could call the Yoga of the world. The Supreme Love was manifesting through big pulsations, and each pulsation was bringing the world further in its manifestation. It was the formidable pulsations of the eternal, stupendous Love, only Love: each pulsation of the Love was carrying the universe further in its manifestation.“
(Mother's Agenda, April 13, 1962)
How can I experience myself if there is only me …?
"... The germ of love cannot just germinate, there must be something where it can be sown. The world and the development is the soil in which the germ is sown. … There must be almost a dying of longing and loneliness and then the strength to grow through this longing and ever new forms, in order to come so far one day as to love oneself.“ 
According to Mr. Reiter this strong desire was already present in plant life. So he continues:"By filling things with spirit one experiences them. One also experiences part of one’s soul because one gives the spirit also to it. And in individuals the soul is facing itself in love, therefore love is, as I say, the perfection of all life. Then one loves both at the same time, but above all one recognizes. To recognize and to love are one. One recognizes what one is loving. But one not only recognizes abstractly as at the beginning of creation. This harmony exists there too but is somewhat empty.“ 
How do we recognize ourselves? We look into a mirror. Our human counterpart reflects us through sympathy, rejection, praise, criticism, attention or even projection.
There is a spirit behind all things. And not only behind things, since the beginning of time he has been contained in all things down into the smallest atom. Everything stems from the Divine Consciousness like an infinite unfolding of itself into the manifestation. Thus there is nothing but the Supreme which has apparently forgotten itself. In search of a counterpart to recognize and taste itself as love.
So what was the beginning of all things?
Being that multiplied itself out of pure joy in millions and millions of forms in order to find itself innumerable times.
