Life comes from Life as Light comes from Light. It is only an Awakened Soul that can rouse us from our deep slumber. We read scriptures for ages upon ages and perform countless sacrificial deeds, but cannot have spiritual awakening and spiritual insight.
Spirituality can neither be bought nor taught, but may be caught like an infectious disease from One who may Himself be spiritually infected, nay rather, obsessed. The teachings of the Saints have not only to be learned but have also to be revealed. Besides knowledge of the Path, it has to be seen, experienced and verified.
Masters have been coming from time to time; and to all intents and purposes, outwardly, They appear to be men. They were born the same way and Their bodies are constructed the same way. What then is the difference between such a Personality and the average man? It is in His being a conscious co-Worker of Divine Plan, for He sees it is the Father working through Him. Kirpal Singh
"In the beginning was the Word; the Word was with God, and the Word was God." Saint John
The Word (Naam or Shabd, Logos, Kalma, Palabra, Parola, Slowo) was there before the creation. All Great Souls have stressed this point.
