Although this was originally part of a private correspondence which 
took place in 1884, its content would seem to be equally valid today:

"Self personality, vanity and conceit harboured in the higher 
principles are enormously more dangerous than the same defects 
inherent only in the lower physical nature of man. They are the 
breakers against which the cause of chelaship, in its probationary 
stage, is sure to be dashed to pieces unless the would-be disciple 
carries with him the white shield of perfect confidence and trust in 
those he would seek out through mount and vale to guide him safely 
toward the light of Knowledge." (Mahatma Letters,#134, chronological)
