Is it to be wondered that so few reach the goal, that so
many are called, but so few are chosen? Is not the reason for
this explained in three lines on page 27 of the "Voice of the
Silence"? These say that while "The first repeat in pride 'Behold,
I know,' the last, they who in humbleness have garnered, low
confess, 'thus have I heard' "; and hence, become the only
Lucifer, June 1890 "Mistaken Notions on the 'Secret Doctrine'"
Keith: I am confused by this quotation. I would assume that those following
the path must test everything with their own consciousness, thus saying like
Jung: "I don't believe, I KNOW" This is the tradition of the gnostic who
has experienced the spiritual for himself.
To say humbly, this is what I have heard, and that makes one "chosen" to be a
student of the Masters, seems strangely antiquated, outdated. Perhaps this
quotation is taken out of context and she was being ironic or maybe not.
Do the Masters really want a bunch of vegetarian brown noses?
