A factor in spiritual attainment

May 31st 2015
There are particular qualities and virtues you would like to possess. Well then, focus on them, and try to imagine the magnificent creature you long to become. You will feel your inner strength, your confidence and your joy increasing, as a foretaste of the changes that will one day come about. Many will say, ‘But we can see very well what we are like, and our imagination won’t change anything.’ Carry on thinking like that, and it’s true, nothing will change. Those with a spiritual philosophy, who are aware of the power of thought, know how effective it can be. In their meditations they imagine themselves surrounded by light, sending out light, expressing all the divine qualities. These images help them to prepare the ground, and little by little they move closer to the goal they want to attain.
