THE MESSAGE IN OUR TIME
Even in a fall there is a hidden stepping-stone by which one may rise above shortcomings, distinctions and differences. In this way one may tune one’s ego to a higher pitch, so as to harmonize with those whom one meets, and in whose company one might discover sparks of hidden guidance. There is no experience in life which is really worthless, and there is not one moment which is really wasted, providing one is wise enough to carefully assemble the elements of past memories and learn from these with the idea of accomplishing one’s life's purpose, although one’s vision of right and wrong might not always correspond to that of others. Each time that we set aside our own ego, even for a moment, we offer a little bit of our heart to the Divine Presence, and in return the light of the Spirit of Guidance becomes brighter and brighter, so that there remains no shadow to hide the perfection of the all-pervading.
