The Company We Keep
Our progress depends on the quality of the company we keep; the influence for the good. Good company can elevate and inspire us never to lose heart. This company may be human, or it may be the ancient teachings that are devoid of cultural elaborations attached to them.
All spiritual teachings come down to one point – that we are pure consciousness. That is the highest wisdom in the infinite universe. Symbolic elaborations serve as a reminder, but remember, they are a substitute.
And unfortunately, the substitute is more spectacular
than the reality.
