Spiritual master, a

Know what to expect from them

February 11th 2018
The spiritual life is a discipline which requires a great deal of time and effort. Therefore, if someone comes along and begins by promising that you will obtain clairvoyance and psychic powers very quickly and easily, be careful. And mistrust them all the more if they ask for money in exchange for such rapid results. For the truth is that money is of no use whatsoever when it comes to spiritual progress. Your daily efforts to learn self-control, to be considerate of others, and to unite with God through prayer and meditation cost nothing – all this is free. But it is a long process, and as humans are both lazy and impatient to achieve success, they are immediately attracted by someone who promises them miraculous results, even if the price is high. But in this case they should not complain later for having been cheated. When you look for a spiritual master you must know what to expect of them: illusions or truth.
