“Patience is needed in this gradual journey towards unfoldment. You cannot jump over obstacles, as many people try to do. The ancient mystery teaching says that no candidate for initiation must try to rush forward. It is the lower self that wants to rush forward and get to the destination quickly… There must be self-discipline and tranquillity. Tranquillity is of the utmost importance, because the soul is only receptive to the ministry of angels in its tranquil moments.” Words of wisdom taken from White Eagle’s book “Further Steps on a Spiritual Path”.
