were fighting over the body of a smaller animal that they had killed and were feedingupon. When he approached them they stopped fighting and put their heads in hisoutstretched hands in perfect trust, then resumed their meal in quiet. He even gave meone of the young wild creatures to hold in my hands. He then said to me, "This is not themortal self, the self you see, that is able to do these things. It is a truer, deeper self. It iswhat you know as God, God within me, God the Omnipotent One working through me,that does these things. Of myself, the mortal self, I can do nothing. It is only when I getrid of the outer entirely and let the actual, the I AM, speak and work and let the greatLove of God come forth that I can do these things that you have seen. When you let theLove of God pour through you to all things, nothing fears you and no harm can befallyou."Every day during this time I had lessons with Emil. He would suddenly appear in myroom, even if I had taken special care to lock the door before retiring. At first hisappearance at will disturbed me but I soon saw that he took it for granted that Iunderstood. I became accustomed to his ways and left my door open so that he couldcome and go as he pleased. This confidence seemed to please him. I could not understandall his teachings and I could not accept them fully, nor was I able, with all I saw while inthe East, to fully accept at the time. It required years of meditation to bring me therealization of the deep spiritual meaning of these peoples' lives.Their work is accomplished without ostentation and in perfect childlike simplicity. Theyknow the power of love to protect them and they cultivate it until all nature is in love withthem and befriends them. Thousands of the common people are killed annually byserpents and wild animals, yet these Masters have so brought forth the power of love inthemselves that serpents and wild animals do not injure them. They live at times in thewildest jungles, and sometimes lay their bodies down before a village to protect it fromthe ravages of wild animals, and no harm befalls the village or themselves. Whenoccasion requires they walk on water, go through fire, travel in the invisible, and do manyother things that we have been accustomed to look upon as miracles performed only byone supposed in some way to possess supernatural powers.There is a striking resemblance between the life and teaching of Jesus of Nazareth andthose of these Masters as exemplified in their daily life. It has been thought impossiblefor man to derive his daily supply directly from the Universal, to overcome death and toperform the various so-called miracles that Jesus performed while on earth. The Mastersprove that all these are their daily life. They supply everything needed for their dailywants directly from the Universal, including food, clothing and money. They have so farovercome death that many of them now living are over five hundred years of age, as wasconclusively proved by their records.There are comparatively few of these Masters in India, other cults seeming to be butoffshoots of their teaching. They realize their number is limited and that only a fewscholars can come to them. In the invisible, however, they can reach almost unlimitednumbers and it seems to be the greater work of their lives to reach out into the invisibleand help all who are receptive to their teaching.
