The Ascent to Spiritual Heights
Brandon Goh, our
Assistant Secretary, shares his thoughts on this lofty subject.
is the sublime state for which many aspirants strive, and meditation, along
with the right use of mantras, hastens its attainment. Wherever we stand on
the evolutionary ladder, direct spiritual awareness, or at least its
manifestation in qualities of character or noble emotions, is within our
reach. Even for those who are not drawing near the Path as yet, there are
hills to surmount before the glorious mountains come into view.
Most of us already know
the qualifications and laws of the spiritual path by heart, and many are
daunted – rightfully so. Grave and severe, the laws of the "razor-edged
path" demand utter sacrifice and utmost seriousness. The prospective
disciple who works not for the One Cause but for himself risks a terrible
fate. However, the call to the heights must be answered.
The path to discipleship
is ever open to those who are willing to tread it. It is as open now as it
was back then during the time of HPB and other great initiates. The only
difference is that conscious communication will only be possible when we've
sufficiently developed higher consciousness. Nonetheless, the higher self of
the aspirant is always in communion with the Great Ones and only through
reaching within may we find the light.
Those who have the eyes
to see and ears to hear, arise!
