Even When the Water & Fog Are Cleared….

"Let the magician stand upon the mountain top.

Beneath him in the valleys & the plains,

Water & streams & clouds are seen.

Above him,

the blue of heaven,

the radience of the rising sun,

the pureness of the mountain air...."


from Rule Fifteen  - "A Treatise on White Magic" A.A. Bailey


Wise words to keep our sense of humour and proportion...to go with your lovely picture first posted.


"May I in all earnest offer to you

the paradoxical injunction

to work with utter earnestness,

and yet at the same time

to refust to work with such earnestness,

and not to take yourself so earnestly?


Those who stand on the inner side

and study the work of the world aspirants today

see an almost pitiful distress of individual deficiency,

a sustained and strenuous effort on their part

to "make themselves what they ought to be",

and yet at the same time

a distressing lack of proportion,

and no sense of humour whatsoever.


I urge upon you to cultivate both these qualitites.

Do not take yourself so seriously,

and you will find that you will release yourself

for freer and more potent work.

Take the Plan seriously and the call to serve,

but waste not time in constant self-analysis."
