Re: Theos-World Adelaise: Here's the quote

I am a bit puzzled by the controversy. What is it you find wrong with
the advice that the student imagine the Master as a living being
within? While it is certainly true that the student has the right to
accept or reject any teaching that seems incorrect to him, this
particular statement seems very consistent with the body of teaching
The power of visualization is closely connected with the mystery of
creation. Elsewhere, Judge said, "Consciousness is everything."
(paraphrase) What we think will come to pass. If we wish to create
world peace, for instance, we can create in our imagination a vision
of that condition.
When we accept the Unity of all Life (fundamental precept of the
Ancient Wisdom) we find that all life dwells within each entity. The
center of every entity, be it planet or star or sun or atom, is the
same center. The Master is the Higher Self, the spiritual Father of
the material child. Recognizing and reinforcing awareness of that
fact by means of visualization can help the student realize his goals
of living up to his own highest ideals.
