"No sooner had the Master said this when a large, custard pie  materialized 
out of thin air and hit the Bishop square in the face, which was  followed by 
the most unseemly laughter emanating from all points in the chamber,  even 
though there was not a soul to be seen in the room."

When first I had the privilege of coming into somewhat closer touch  
with the Master, I asked Him in a letter what I should do. He 
answered  to the following effect: "You must find work for yourself; 
you know what  we are doing. Throw yourself into our work in any way 
you can. If I gave  you a definite piece of work to do you would do 
it, but in that case the  karma of what was done would be mine, 
because I told you to do it. You  would have only the karma of willing 
obedience, which of course is very  good, but it is not the karma 
initiating a fruitful line of action. I want  you to initiate work for 
yourself, because then the karma of the good deed  will come to you." 

132. I think we might all take that unto ourselves.  We might 
realize that it is our business not to wait until we are asked to  do 
something, but to set to work. There is a good deal of quite humble  
work to be done in connection with Theosophy. Often perhaps some of 
us  would prefer the more spectacular part; we should like to stand up 
and  deliver lectures in public to large audiences. We can generally 
find  people who are willing to offer themselves for that; but there 
is a great  deal of humdrum office work to be done in connection with 
our Society, and  we do not always find so many volunteers for that. 
Reverence and love for  our Masters will lead us to be willing to do 
anything whatever in Their  service, however humble; and we may be 
sure that we are working in Their  service when we are helping the 
Society which two of Them  founded.
