"...reverence Them in his heart....
draw near to Them...
open...communication 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
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. [THIS SECOND PARAGRAPH BY HPB SEEMS TO PROVIDE THE STUDENT
WITH SOME IMPORTANT THOUGHTS.]
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.
