“A sage is someone who has succeeded in ridding himself of the useless burdens of life. He has gone beyond his internal regions of clouds and dust, that is, the astral and mental planes (selfish, common feelings and thoughts) and risen to the regions of eternal sunshine. And his only wish is to pass on to others the wisdom he has won at the cost of great effort.
But it takes so long to get people to understand what we ourselves have understood! So the only thing a sage can communicate immediately is the joy he derives from this wisdom, a joy that overflows from his soul and which we could also call love. And those who receive this joy and love are made to reflect because of it. Let them at least ask themselves in what way they too could attain the same state of consciousness.”
