"Let Reality govern my every thought and truth be the Master of my life."
The following extract is taken from a collection of inspiring texts called the Masters Archive. These insightful quotes offer humanity an opportunity to pause and reflect on the necessary steps along the path of light, often called the “Lighted Way”.
As we move into the Aquarian age of enlightenment, with the Piscean energies quickly receding, the shift from the personal program (self-enlightenment) into an all-inclusive group consciousness (group-initiation) becomes evident even for the newly awakened Soul.
For those who can recognize the profound truth found in the following passage, the path becomes illuminated.
Be at Peace
"And dost thou see the Door, O Chela in the light?
I see the door and hear a calling voice. What should I do, O Master of my life?
Go through that Door and waste not time in backward glances at the road just trodden. Go forward into light.
The door is far too narrow, O Master of my life. I fear I cannot pass.
Go closer to the Door and take the hand in thine of another pilgrim on the way of life. Go closer to the Door; seek not to enter it alone.
I cannot see the door, now that I grasp the hand of the brother on the right and the brother on the left. I seem surrounded by the pilgrims on the way. Alike they seem, their note is one; they seem like unto me, and press around on every side. I cannot see the door.
Move forward on the Path, O pilgrim in the light, and stand together, hand in hand, before the Door of Light. What seest thou?
The door again appears, and wide it seems, not narrow as before. What was that I saw before? It was not like the door which now confronts this band of brothers as we stand together on the Path.
The door you saw before was a figment of your mind; a thoughtform of your separative creation, something that cuts you off from truth—too narrow for your passing yet full of wrong allure. Only the man who holds his brother's hand can see the Door in truth; only the man, surrounded by the many who are one, can enter the Door which shuts itself upon the man who seeks to enter it alone."
