The true disciple, being in the presence of the Perfect Master and privileged to witness the perfect living exemplification of His Masterly Perfection, becomes imbued with Divine Love and Wisdom-knowledge, in spite of his human limitations, dispelling all doubts and human frailty of the mind so long as he accepts the Master in his heart. Then and at that instant, the mind becomes illuminated or enlightened with the true feeling and un­derstanding of God's presence, and of one's own true being.

 

However, when the Ego, through the limited mind with its mental equipment, sneaks in to claim the exclusiveness of such wisdom or spiritual understanding through mere intellect by the assertion of its self-esteem, then it plunges itself and all concerned into a state of confusion and illusion.

 

On the other hand, when the intellectual excellency is used by the spiritual heart and mind, the result becomes most productive in its manifest expression of wisdom-knowledge in all its functions. That becomes the evidence of Infinite, Divine Consciousness of a Great Being that recognizes spiritual freedom and the one Unity in diversity.

 

When the disciple is alone, away from the Master, and so-called time passes on, the reflection of such abstract thoughts begin to take shape the process of integration as he lives them actually in his pursuit of action in awakened consciousness. Then it could be said that "There is nothing higher than Truth but true living!" This procedure eventually will lead the disciple to ultimate Reality.

From Frank S. Hendricks:

 

PRAYER

 

0 GOD, all LOVE, all GOOD, all TRUTH, all BEAUTY, ALL MERCY, JOY and BLISS and PEACE—pour upon all these souls in Thy Being at this moment in Eternity, Thy great Blessing of Love, Power, Joy, Bliss and the Grace of Thy Glory in Peace—that these souls now imprisoned in finite garment, may finish the work which Thou gavest them to perform, and let Thy Kingdom Come, and let Thy Will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.... For all these—in Heart, let Thy "awakening" Be—the One-in-I—ME—the ONE.

 

Lovingly dedicated this 30th day January, 1955, A.D., to my Beloved Master, Shri Meher Baba, In Eternity.
