previous day - April 23rd 2021 - next day

Be glad and not sorrowful, all ye who love Truth! For your sorrows shall pass away, like the mists of the morning.

April Twenty-third.

DISCIPLE : Teacher of teachers, instruct Thou me.

Master : Ask, and I will answer. Disciple : I have read much, but am ignorant still; I have studied the doctrines of the schools, but have not become wise thereby ; I know the scriptures by heart, but peace is hidden from me. Point out to me, O Master ! the way of knowledge. Reveal to me the highway of divine wisdom ; lead Thou Thy child into the path of peace.

Master : The way of knowledge, O Disciple ! is by searching the heart; the highway of wisdom is by the practice of righteousness ; and by a sinless life is found the way of peace.

Behold where Love Eternal rests concealed! (The deathless Love that seemed so far away!) E’en in the lowly heart ; it stands revealed To him who lives the sinless life to-day.

Twenty-Third Morning

He who has conquered doubt and fear has
conquered failure. His every thought is
allied with power, and all difficulties are
bravely met and wisely overcome. His
purposes are seasonably planted, and they
bloom and bring forth fruit which does
not fall prematurely to the ground.

Thought allied fearlessly to purpose
becomes creative force: he who knows this
is ready to become something higher and
stronger than a mere bundle of wavering
thoughts and fluctuating sensations; he
who does this has become the conscious
and intelligent wielder of his mental powers.

Twenty-Third Evening

Man’s true place in the Cosmos is that of
a king, not a slave, a commander under
the Law of Good, and not a helpless tool
in the region of evil.

I write for men, not for babes; for
those who are eager to learn, and earnest
to achieve; for those who will put away
(for the world’s good) a petty personal
indulgence, a selfish desire, a mean
thought, and live on as though it were
not, sans craving and regret.

Man is a master. If he were not, he
could not act contrary to law.

Evil and weakness are self destructive.
The universe is girt with goodness
and strength, and it protects the good
and the strong.

The angry man is the weak man.
