A Failed Relationship
To the initiate who is not willing to deal with his flaws, the Master often
seems to be an authority figure who stands in the way of the initiates fulfillment.
The initiate may even construe that his or her own will is more in tune with Gods
will than the Masters will. The initiate may eventually look down on the Master. But
the initiate usually feels guilty about harboring contempt and irrationally condemning the
Master. These complex feelings can lead to hatred, too. As guilt builds up, it creates
even more intense hate problems. The wedge of the initiates poison endeavors to
become a wall.
An example of this "failed relationship" was Judas
Iscariot. Judas was an initiate a direct disciple of Jesus.
Judas expected, according to some historians, that Jesus would create an army and
through military and other means establish a kingdom of heaven on earth. At the
very least, Judas is said to have thought Jesus would force the Romans to leave Israel.
Instead, Jesus performed miracles, preached about faith, and in no way turned to
materialistic power to bring the kingdom of heaven to earth.
Judas kissed Jesus and betrayed him into death.
While Masters have many problems with devotees, the true initiate
must beware of the "false Guru."...
