Signs Of Success

The first signs of success (of the evolutionary process) are a greater regard for truth; a greater measure of self-mastery; steadfastness; altruism; the absence of envy, malice, and hate; and a greater sense of empathy with all human beings.

The climax of the practice -- namely, the vision of God or cosmic consciousness -- can be sublime and blissful only when the personality of the seeker evolves in the right direction as a result of the changes brought about in the organism.

The reason why all great spiritual teachers, including the founders of the major faiths, have laid greater emphasis on the cultivation of noble qualities than on meditational techniques is obvious in light of this fact.
