Instead of fantasizing, dear seeker, labor to be more
conscious and balanced. Strive to have healthy friendships and inner companions of thought

ambitions which they have done nothing whatever in reality to fulfill.
A genuine seeker
cultivates modesty and humility. Mahatma

consciousness you will feel no inclination to exalt your ego. You simply don't have a
desire to dominate others or exalt yourself.
However, without desiring it, people in higher consciousness often find they are, in
spite of themselves, respected and esteemed by other people. Their lives of faith are
beacons to seekers of light.
And now, learn how to turn on the
