A bond is established which nothing can break. When we find a teacher we must expect opposition from others, because nothing creates greater resentment and antagonism in the world than the disinterested service of mankind when allied with spiritual power. Men of the world do not easily forgive those whose lives and utterances are a reproach to the pride of life. Our relations to a teacher must be characterized by complete frankness, by humility, and willingness to learn, and by readiness to put the knowledge gained into practice.

 

There are imperfect teachers who know a little; we meet them often, but the Perfect Teacher is met with rarely. It is the turning point in one's life when such a meeting takes place, and it does not happen to everyone. We can meet teachers in books, but it is better if we meet them in the flesh. The difficulty is that they do not often let themselves be seen.

  • "I belong to no religion. Every religion belongs to Me. My own personal religion is of My being the Ancient Infinite One and the religion I teach to all is of love for God.
  • "This love can be practiced by any one, high, low, rich, poor, and every one of each caste and creed can love God.

     

    "The one God who resides equally in us all is approachable to every one through love. So I give My blessings that at least some of you would love God as He is to be loved."

     

  • "I am the One so many seek and so few find. No amount of intellect can fathom Me. No amount of austerity can attain Me. Only when one loves Me and loses one's self in Me, am I found.
  • "This love must be so honest that not only others should not know it, but you yourself should not be aware of it.
