Dear friends


“For all men one rule holds good - live the purest and most unselfish life you possibly can - cultivate alike your mind and heart - detach your mind as far as possible from worldly pleasures, worldly desires, worldly objects, and set your heart as undividedly as your strength permits on doing good to all living things.” [1]

 

Best regards, Magda

Greetings, Magda, and good wishes.

I was giving the above 127-year-old quotation the usual charity which is often necessary to appreciate the “old-school” fashion in aspirational writing—until I encountered this additional fragment from the article on your website: 

“. . . spiritual aspirations must have pushed their way out of the dry earth of material associations into the clear air of spirituality before the watchers over the progress of their less advanced brethren [italic added], can dare to water them. . . .”

In my view, it may not be so advisable to base any part of your Psycho-Spiritual development on the childlike hope that eventually Someone “higher” than yourself will, once you prove yourself worthy, condescend to give you a Bigger-Brother hand-up or hand-out.

To me, spiritual help is there perpetually, like the air we breathe. Only we do not recognize it. Keep an open mind and you will find it.
