Only those who work with the formidable forces of Love, Patience, Perseverance and Humility will enter the kingdom of God
"Pride is considered to be a fault, and humility, a virtue, but the spiritualist must find a perfect balance between pride and exaggerated humility. He should not stay totally in the background under the pretext of humility, as he will become dull, colorless and stupid. But it is not desirable either that he be too conceited on the pretext that he follows a spiritual teaching, as not only will he become ridiculous, but also fanatical and wicked. To be moderate is one of the most difficult tasks in the world. Even in initiatic schools of the past, very few disciples avoided giving way to pride or exaggerated humility - which is so often nothing but hidden pride! So be careful not to fall into the same trap. You must know how to be dressed like a king while remaining a humble servant."

To avoid falling into the traps life inevitably sets us at one time or another, we must chiefly develop two qualities: discernment and humility. Discernment is a quality of the mind and humility a quality of the heart. Discernment enables us to distinguish the true from the false, the reality behind the appearance, in all circumstances. It shows us which direction to take and which foolish mistakes to avoid; it shields us from error and illusion. As for humility, a quality that is so neglected, scorned even, you cannot measure its value unless you understand how dangerous the opposite attitude of pride can be. Pride shuts people off from the divine world; it cuts off the currents that bring the living water of heaven. And so, just as we have to cultivate discernment, which shows us the path we have to follow, we must also cultivate humility, which opens us to the currents of the divine world, for it is from those currents that we receive sustenance for our progress along the path.

To avoid succumbing to the temptations of evil spirits, the disciple must develop two principle qualities: discernment and humility. Discernment is a quality of the intellect, whereas humility is a quality of the heart. Discernment allows us in any given circumstance to distinguish the true from the false, reality from appearances. It shows us the right path to follow and how to avoid pitfalls. Only good judgement protects us from mistakes and illusions. As for humility a quality greatly neglected and even scorned we can only appreciate its value if we understand the dangers of its opposite attitude: pride. Pride shuts us off from the divine world, blocking the currents which bring us the living waters of heaven. This is why, as we cultivate the discernment which shows us the right path to follow, we must at the same time cultivate the humility which opens us up to the life-giving currents of the divine world, so vital to our progress along this path.

"Being humble does not consist in constantly belittling oneself and saying, I am nothing, I am worthless. True humility lies in putting the Divinity first within oneself in order to manifest all its virtues and riches. But how many are able to understand such a truth? And because they have not understood it, they eventually stand up before the Lord and even try to take his place. But in doing so they belittle themselves and fade into insignificance.

Although human beings are such imperfect creatures, their greatness lies in their understanding that, in spite of their inadequacies, they can work wonders, if only they give the Lord first place in their head and in their heart. Without the Lord they cannot go very far; no matter what they do, it will be human, mediocre. This is what you must understand, and you must do everything to allow the Lord in, to let him manifest through you and take you into his service. That is true humility!"

"Only those who work with the formidable forces of love, patience, perseverance and humility will enter the kingdom of God. Cosmic Intelligence is implacable and will never submit to those obstinate minds that dont wish to learn or work with the great laws of life, giving proof of their faith, stability and love of good.

Simply because, a few months ago, they decided to make the effort to improve themselves, many imagine heaven must open up to them, the angels must come and take them in their arms! No, for that to happen you have to have worked for a very long time. Heaven is very slow to give great rewards, but when it does its for eternity. Once we have succeeded in entering paradise, no one can drive us out. But what an effort we have to make before the door is opened to us!"

Love, patience, perseverance, and humility are very good attributes for a human on this earth. The Kingdom of God is imaginary.
