How to work with them

January 3rd 2011
You read or hear a remark that fills you with wonder: it is a revelation, and you feel something new stirring within. And truthful words do actually possess real magical power. But if you do nothing with the idea they express, their effect fades, and all you can do then is seek to hear new words that will give you the same spiritual emotions, which will then disappear in the same way. So, what is the point of it all? In the end, you must find a good way of working: when you receive a truth, don’t be content to feel wonder for a few minutes; try to live with it the whole day. While you are working, walking, listening to music, cooking, doing the housework, and so on, do not let go of it. Study it from every aspect; try to see the truth of it in every sphere and in all circumstances. In this way it will become part of you.
