BEFORE WE GET TOO PROUD
Jun 03, 2006 09:33 AM
Lest we should get exceedingly proud of the speed of events in our civilization, it it better to read -- and to meditate -- on these words from an Adept-Teacher, published in the "Mahatma Letters":
?Less than two centuries prior to the arrival of Cortez there was a great ?rush? towards progress among the sub-races of Peru and Mexico as there is now in Europe and the U.S.A. Their sub-race ended in total annihilation through causes generated by itself ; so will yours at the end of its cycle.? (1)
In fact, high speed is often associated of a lack of sense of direction.
There is an ancient saying which states: "When Karma decides to punish somebody, it makes the person blind, and then it makes the person run".
Best regards, Carlos Cardoso Aveline
