Expect only knowledge and methods from him
March 4th 2011
Why do you expect your Master to get you out of all your difficulties? It is up to you to make an effort, to learn and to exert yourself, because whatever efforts you have made will serve you for all eternity. If you are always expecting someone to come and rescue you, to free you from your suffering, illnesses and unhappiness, it may happen, as there are beings on earth who are able to do so. But it is something sages will never do, because they know they won’t be helping you – on the contrary. A spiritual Master will give you everything you need in the way of knowledge and methods, but he will expect you to apply them, so that you grow and become stronger. That is true evolution.
