“Consciousness […] has to come down and break the hard block of inert matter, striking and scattering and throwing up, as it were, its myriad disparate bits, turning them into particles of Light and Consciousness. These free sparks at the outset become erratic, errant conscious units, free but fighting against each other […] but that is the way towards a purer, higher, wider, integrating consciousness. We are thus in a transition period; it is an interregnum, beset with great difficulties, but they are also great opportunities.”

“Work done as prayer is the best means of effecting an ascent in consciousness […] Work is not meant to show or express one’s capacity or skillfulness or cleverness, nor is it a mere mechanical execution of outward acts performing certain duties.
