An instructor stated that materializing for hours and not being in the moment results to nothing, but I was thinking about those neophytes that are not awake but do work with the word, are they're works for nothing?

Hello Emmanuel,

Thank you for your question. It is difficult to respond directly without knowing the lecture you are referring to or the context of what was said. However, please understand that results depend on the level of thought, will, and action placed on the work. We must ask ourselves what we are trying to achieve in this work and whether it is of pure heart and mind.

All who enter this path with pure intention will be supported by their innermost being. Therefore, we must work to self-realize to encounter our innermost. Self-realization is achieved by focusing on the here and now. It is this process that allows us to create the body of consciousness. The work, done properly, is never for nothing. However, being distracted by anything other than the here and now will not achieve the desired results.

I’ve provided a quote and a link that may help to understand in more detail:


What is the condition of our soul? Are we distracted? Are we comparing everything that we hear with the intellect? Is our memory constantly trying to distract us? Is something else distracting us? For example: if we are listening to this lecture, but we are also browsing the internet, then you are not here and now. If you are listening to this lecture but also doing other things, then you are not present, really listening. If you are reading but comparing with other things, or thinking of other things, then you are not really reading here and now.
This is our habit: we are habitually distracted. We are so habitual with our state of distraction that we want to feel that way all the time, to be doing more than one thing at a time. To us this feels like an accomplishment but in fact it is a condition of being asleep, it is a state of distraction.
If we can truly be here and now, truly using our senses to the fullest of their power and really be conscious of being alive, that is what gives us access to our Being; in other words, our God, our Innermost. You can call it Buddha, Allah anything, any name... but names don’t matter. That beingness is a portion of the Absolute, of the “everything,” and we come from that.
