HPB on the Masters: "....reverence Them in his heart....draw near to Them...."

"...reverence Them in his heart....draw near to with the guru...."

H.P.B. writes to members of the Esoteric School:

As to the relations of the Masters to this Section, it may be 
further said, paradoxically, that with Them everything is possible 
and everything is impossible. They may or may not communicate 
personally on the outer plane with a member, and those who are 
continually wishing to receive "orders," or communications directly 
from Them on this plane, either phenomenally or otherwise, will in 
all probability be disappointed. The Masters have no desire to prove 
Their power or give "tests" to anyone whatever. And the fact that a 
member has concluded that a crisis of some kind or other is at hand, 
when, according to his wise opinion, the Master or Masters ought to 
speak and interfere personally, is no sound reason for such an 
outward interference. 

It is, however, right that each member, once he believes in the 
existence of such Masters, should try to understand what their 
nature and powers are, to reverence Them in his heart, to draw near 
to Them, as much as in him lies, and to open up for himself 
conscious communication with the guru to whose bidding he has 
devoted his life. This can only be done by rising to the spiritual 
plane where the Masters are, and not by attempting to draw them down 
to ours. 

Inasmuch as growth in spiritual life comes from within, members must 
not expect to receive any other communications than those through 
H.P.B. The additional help, instruction, and enlightenment, will 
come from the inner planes of being, and will, as said, always be 
given when deserved.
