The ultmate end s not easy to attan. Competton seems to have taken the place of cooperaton. and dstrust that of trust and good fath. and the purpose we set out to acheve les wholly neglected. who have been put on the road. The orgnal goal s completely forgotten n the heat of controversy and debate. Why such dsharmony should keep up s not dffcult to tell. These dscples are ndvduals nspred by sprtual longngs. but who have not necessarly reached the goal.

33 . we wll ultmately have to sacrfce the “Cause” whch brought us together. could resolve at a touch the contradctory statements regardng the elephant made by the proverbal sx blnd men. The man who could see. the roots of dscord begn. whle t s natural for those who lack full vson not to agree fully on such matters. but left to themselves. and what a great loss that would be. they could only wrangle and debate. others whose vewpont s equally ndvdual and dstnct. workng for promotng the Holy Cause of leadng the seekers to the Goal of Lfe.are entrusted wth any responsblty t s nevtable that they should dscharge t wthn the terms of ther own vson and nsght.

And when n dschargng ths responsblty they have to collaborate wth others lke themselves. each consdered that he was rght and the others wrong. And yet. all s well. we must not allow ths lmtaton to create dvson and dssenson. and each dstrusted what the others had to say. They should understand that they are all laborers n the feld of the Master. but the moment they have also to work n collaboratng and cooperaton. controversy begns. If sx men lackng full vson could not agree about the nature of so lmted and well-defned an object as an elephant. t s not surprsng that those wth lmted vson should be unable to harmonze completely on so vast and unlmted a subject as sprtualty.

What s ths love. of whch all mystcs Eastern and Western. and yet t s a love that s not wholly selfless. It s a love that can often rse to great heghts of self-sacrfce. He who understands Love n ts true nature and who lves and moves by ts lght shall. He. – GURU GOBIND SINGH Love knows selfless servce. man and wfe. Parent and chld. Love and all things shall be added unto thee. sacrfce. It even sacrfces one’s personal nterests for the cause one has sncerely taken up. 34 . Let no one nterested n sprtual advancement perform servce for the sake of apprecaton. who has not mastered ts secret. you wll fnd that at some pont or another a trace of self-asserton s present n every case. can never hope to be receved n the Court of the Lord. surely as two added to two makes four. – CHRIST Listen! for I give you the very essence of truth: Those who have loved have reached the Lord.There s only one remedy for all such dscord and that s Love. Selfless servce s great reward n tself. frend and frend. have spoken so nsstently? Is t lke the love of the earth that we know? If you study the bonds of earthly love. and selfsurrender. each s nvolved n a more or less strong drve for possesson. It s the begnnng and the end of sprtualty. attan the Lord.

and wthout such complete absorpton n the object of one’s love. Besdes. the faculty whch creates these very lmts. He who cannot rse above the ego. one’s love s stll not perfect and not truly acceptable n the eyes of the Lord. And so the love of mystcs s one n whch one completely and unreservedly surrenders one’s self to one’s love. The answer s smple: wthout ths absolute surrender of the last vestges of ego and selfhood. If one has not attaned complete purfcaton n ths respect. the sngle-pontedness of concentraton s dsspated and nner advancement s made mpossble. You may well ask why there s ths nsstent stress on complete self-surrender on the mystc path. one cannot attan that unwaverng concentraton of all one’s facultes whch s the prerequste of all nner progress. havng found a true Master. Absolute love and self-surrender are only other aspects of complete and flawless concentraton. the goal of the sprtual asprant les far beyond the lmts of ndvdualty. The moment the “self” enters nto the pcture and the queston of “I-ness” arses. 35 . The seeker who. Hs goal s unon wth the Absolute and such unon must necessarly be a denal of the lmts that separate us from each other.But the Love of whch the mystcs speak s a love that must be completely purfed of the self. has developed such absolute love for hm. steadly purfes hmself of all mperfectons and makes hmself a ft recpent of Dvne Grace. cannot hope to attan to that staton whch s the denal of all ndvdualty and a realzaton of the oneness of all lfe.

the ego. has been the keystone of the teachngs of all mystcs and especally so of 36 . word or thought. and obeys Hm n all thngs completely and absolutely. and f the seeker s to trumph over t. judgng from one’s own lmted understandng. doubts the valdty of the Master’s nstructons. and reach hs heavenly home one day. the ego.Hence t s that mystcs of all tradtons have been untrng n ther stress of the need for absolute selfsurrender. wll one day radate wth the glory of God. one must not look up to the Dety n Its Abstract form but n Its human form as the Master. who s attuned to the Lord and s Hs mouthpece. To acheve ths degree of self-surrender. However. n order to surrender one’s self to t? What one may take as an ntuton nspred by the Dvne may be really one’s own self speakng n dsguse. and he who passes through these tests successfully. he wll surely destroy the hydra-headed serpent of the ego. Such love and self-surrender to the Wll of the Lord emboded n the Master. but such moments are only tests to make our self-surrender more complete and more secure. It was ths cross of sacrfce of the self. he must be prepared to crucfy t every moment. For n every lttle act. For how else s one to know God’s Wll drectly. of whch Jesus spoke when he exhorted hs dscples to bear ther cross daly. the ego s seekng to domnate us. There wll be moments n the course of such love when one. and surrender to such seemng ntentons may be really surrender to the self. f one has found a true Master.

a long standng tradton of seekng and followng a Lvng Master. be moments of doubt and of questonng. There s n Inda. For the essental advantage n the feld of sprtualty s to be found not wthout but wthn. nothng can dsturb the peace of our mnds or dstract the sprtual harmony that s ours. for example. to reshape ourselves. but for one who has made such love the cornerstone of hs lfe. of course. We have to face the rdcule of our fellows and the organzed opposton of orthodox nsttutons. Your man task as dscples. s to cultvate these qualtes to the very utmost and leave the rest to the Master.Sant Mat. ths ntal advantage s not as great as t mght at frst appear. and outward obstacles may n fact act as tests 37 . Jesus never promsed the peace and comfort wth whch the world s famlar. perhaps. There wll. But f we have anchored ourselves n such a love of complete self-surrender. t s easer n the East to take to the mystc path than t s n the West. It les not n the absence of outer opposton but n one’s nner capacty for complete self-surrender and love. nothng could be easer or more certan. It was the cross he offered. you wll fnd the sprtual road wthn steadly unfoldng tself before you and all thngs beng added unto you. as ntates. Nevertheless. to destroy the old and forge the new. but f you can pass through them wth your love and your fath unscathed. a tradton that s foregn to those to whom relgon has been taught n terms of a closed revelaton. The path s certanly not easy. We have to suffer. Intally.

It s ths capacty that you must cultvate and develop f you really wsh to make substantal progress n the sprtual feld. but the vessel must frst be ready. If you aspre for sprtual salvaton. Rome was not bult n a day and the True Abode of the Lord s not to be attaned wth a few weeks labor. You must crucfy your ego and lay your selfhood at the altar of love for your Master. But the seed generates rapdly only n thn sol and then wthers away. Ths ablty to conquer the ego and to submt oneself to the Hgher Wll s as rare n the East as n the West.and stmul for the development of ths capacty. and as t has been gven to you. Most seekers want quck results. then do not lose a moment n seekng to reform yourselves. as t has been taught by all Masters. s a perfect scence. whch must be pad for wth complete self-transformaton and self-surrender. The rest depends on your effort. They want mracles and sudden transformatons. The scence of sprtualty. Ths then s the task before you. The power to perform mracles s not very dffcult to acqure. but t s not to be confused wth true sprtualty. and f you have 38 . Its truth has been demonstrated by some ntal experence. The Dvne Grace s ever ready to pour tself nto the vessel. I repeat that the path s not easy. The seed that must grow nto the lfe-gvng tree must grow more slowly. and wherever t can be found there you shall observe the true grandmark of sprtualty. Man makng s the most dffcult part of sprtualty.

Let your love for the Master be absolute and your obedence to hs wshes uncompromsng. He has yet to learn the rudments of sprtualty. whatever the opnons of others. But f one has understood ther cause. then God realzaton s not dffcult. wthout queston. one who s stll controlled by the ego and has yet to conquer hs self. then nothng can ever dsturb one’s equanmty or obstruct one’s sprtual course. So long as one has not attaned unversal conscousness. ready to assst whenever you turn your thoughts to Hm. dfferences of opnon are bound to exst. you rse above all feelngs of enmty. command you as a Father. That s somethng that you must leave to the Master. f one has surrendered oneself completely to one’s love. exhort you as a Teacher. Try to help others and do the best for them. Let me therefore. Make your love for Hm so complete that. See Hm present n all and remember that He s always wth you. rvalry and resentment. And above all do not forget that He s to be won not by words but by deeds: 39 . one wll not allow them to dsturb one’s peace of mnd. persuade you as a Frend. Work for Hs Cause to the best of your abltes. but be not concerned wth the fruts of what you do.perfected yourself n that feld. to turn to the reformaton and conquest of the self f you seek to progress on the nner path. Whatever the outer opposton. He who s upset by what others have to say s. but do not let the ndvdualty of your lmted vson nculcate feelngs of opposton and resentment for your fellows. beholdng Hs Hand n everythng.

even those who may frst oppose you. f you can accept the fact of your own lmted vson. No true Master has ever been nterested n attractng large numbers to Hmself. a peace that does not depend on the absence of outer dsturbances. f you can conquer the self and surrender t at the Feet of the Master. who can sacrfce ther ego on the sprtual altar and learn to lve by love. You wll fnd a new sense of peace surgng through you. but s an nner state of mnd that stands unshaken even n the most tempestuous stuatons. but the larger lfe of the Great Sprtual movement of whch you are a part. after understandng 40 . and I emphasze ths agan that a seeker should be studed more carefully and hs/her background learned more before beng recommended for ntaton. t shall proceed sngle and purposeful toward ts goal. than mllons who understand not the value and meanng of these vrtues.” If you can do ths. And ths same qualty shall enter not only your ndvdual lves. nay even one. Instead of beng dsrupted and dvded. weedng out all evls and mperfectons – then you shall not only wn salvaton yourselves but enable others to do lkewse. If.“If you love me follow my commandments. I have suggested ths before. It s qualty that counts and I would rather have a handful of dscples. and quantty has never been my am. f you can learn to see Hm workng through all thngs. and men. f you can undertake a ceaseless and zealous watch over your thoughts and deeds. wll turn to you for gudance and help.
