The Exposure to High Truth

Q:      What is the benefit of learning teachings that seem incomprehensible at the time?

A:      They only seem obscure to the intellect. They plant the seed, and the aspirant’s spiritual aura incorporates the transmitted energy field of the teacher’s aura. Certain information is transformational in itself. Exposure to high truth initiates a yearning in the psyche. The Buddha made that observation when he said that once a person has heard of enlightened truth, he will never be satisfied with anything less, even though it takes innumerable lifetimes to attain it.

Q:      What characteristics facilitate comprehension and transformation?

A: Dedication, devotion, faith, prayer, surrender, and inspiration. When the barriers are relinquished, Truth reveals itself spontaneously.

From I: Reality and Subjectivity, ch. 7, pg. 205-206
