Valuing Past Masters
On our spiritual journey, we need as much help as we can get. We also shouldn’t underestimate the power of the psychological effects of inspiration and aspiration. This needn’t be elaborate: we merely open our minds up to those who have achieved enlightenment and have left directional signs.
As they represent total purity and compassion, we don’t get bogged up in personalities. This is not the same as the idea of God…but it could be if that works for you. Past masters went through what we go through: they were sentient and realised their true nature, as we can.
Devotion (for that is what this is) is a deep appreciation, and stops us from becoming paranoid – irrationally anxious, suspicious, mistrustful, distrustful, fearful, insecure – which is what the “I” is all about.
Authentic present masters
represent past masters.
Our appreciation is a direct connection.
One day present masters
will be representing us!
