Meaning of true discipleship



The Master is supremely impersonal, and always his only concern is to remove the veils between the consciousness of the disciple and his higher Self. Therefore there can never be any real conflict between the allegiance of the disciple to his Master and his allegiance to his own higher Self. Indeed, at the end of his search the disciple discovers that the Master is none other than his own higher Self in another form.

The Master in his utter impersonality and unhampered divinity is so complete that he has no desire. In relation to the disciple all he requires is that the disciple reconstitute himself in the light of the highest Truth.

To become a disciple is to begin to tread the path leading toward the spiritual goal. This is the meaning of true discipleship.
