At the stage where the spirit of Christ constantly
abided in Vincent and his higher consciousness was consolidated, Father Berulle lovingly
pronounced Vincent healed of the confusions of the world and ego. Father Berulle saw
Vincent was free, truly free, and released Vincent from the vow of obedience to him. They
continued as dearest brothers in the Lord for the rest of their lives.
There are dozens, and likely
thousands, of examples of this Western tradition of the transference of
higher consciousness from one who has been so awakened to another who yearns and has
prepared himself for that awakening. Protestant ministers have often spoken of meeting a
great man of God to whom they turn for teaching and correction. They speak in strangely
Eastern terms of wishing to bow down before the Christ in a great brother or sister. They
deeply value the laying on of hands from Christian brothers or sisters. Being called to
serve the Lord, they seek to be more and more Christlike shepherds of their congregations.
