A LOVING attitude

IF folk who wish for 'quick results' within their development, were to be
far nicer to all during one single day - actually exert themselves,
fervently try, nothing else - then the results would be astounding. We
continually overlook the obvious, we oversee the simple facts and impede our
divinity by such ignorance.

And so we require stimulation and provocation. We dismiss, in a single
exclamation “Oh, I know that,” without experiencing such knowledge. A simple
concentration of concerted effort within our attitude and response to others
brings results which are doubly rewarding. And it is because of the
conscious intent and the effort instilled by such desire, that the
correspondents shall be similarly ignited; if not, are singularly aware of
the 'difference'.

It is not so much that one wishes to feel good, but to be good in what one
does. It is surely preferable to upset, and halfhearted interjections. That
by our presence, we seek to illumine our corner of the globe with showers
of: radiant helpfulness, happiness, encouragement, enthusiasm, and keen
interest, with consideration.

Let the student exercise this, particularly those who wish to advance and
attain their golden stars. For this is the primary mark of a man; whether he
be a thunderous shadow or whether he does give back most properly, some
reflection of the heavenly attitude.

How should we wish to be assailed? How best should we respond, to this: the
loving touch?

To the bull-headed, to those who have misty clouds around their forehead; to
those who impinge, to those who protest; to the vain and the stupid; to both
stranger, and lover - to embrace all men with loving attitude, and make
effort in this.

And it is in every holy writ that this is plead and pledged, and made much
of. One can be reminded ever yet, again and again, and still be not
forthcoming. Here is the application and activity of the spiritual
noviciate. And the training may be ever improved upon; and will be tested
radically throughout.

And the heart becomes glad, because it is finally given license to perform
as it does best. And it is known to those who strive actively to take
measures of exerting a wondrous influence to greater degrees. It is
experienced wholeheartedly, and self-explanatory; being yet the best teacher
of all.

One does not look for affirmation or requested results, but only seeks to be
in that attitude which gives to the day, to the time, to all people; and
relaxes. That we are willingly, actively, testing ourselves and our
betterment, by seeking out our best face in all circumstance, within all

To be a lover of the world, to be concentrated upon the good in all. For we
are only true to ourselves when we live and become the highest expectation;
regarding less the illusion that would suggest anything else, otherwise.
