THE HOLY PATH
This Holy Path is not a theory. It isnot a system of beliefs or dogmas.It is not even a religion, althoughit embraces all of the values ofreligion. It is an actual Way, agenuine road to be traveled, involv-ing, of course, certain preparationand training as one goes along. Infact, the word "path" is not altoge-ther appropriate. It is more properlyspeaking "El Camino Real", or theKing's Highway. It belongs to theroyal Masters, and it leads the trav-eler from earth upwards throughkingdom after kingdom, fromcountry to country, each one moresplendid than the other, in anadvancing series until the travelerreaches his final destination, thefeet of the Supreme Lord of all reli-gions. It is a literal, actual highway,over which the Saints and their dis-ciples travel, passing through num-berless and vast regions, stoppingat different stations en route.The passage is really a succes-sion of triumphs, for the disciplesof the Saints are enabled to mastereach region as they enter it, toabsorb its knowledge and powersand become citizens of it. TheSaint is the great captain leadingthe soul from victory to victory. It isa long and difficult passage, butthe Saint has been over it manytimes, and he is Master of it all.He is, in fact, Lord of all the inter-vening regions through which thishighway leads, and before himnumberless multitudes bow downas he passes. This spiritual journeyis, therefore, a long succession oftriumphs, until the traveler reacheshis grand destination.
