When you succeed in building a bridge at first in meditation between the personal self and the world of intuïtion - where brotherhood, joy and beauty are facts - and then gradually spreading it all through your daily life, you will no longer ask whether you're making progress. You will simply have forgotten all about yourself! And in precisely this forgetting lies your success and achievement . . .

From page 1 & 2:

" People are apt to think that meditation to be successful must be accompanied by some astral phenomenon - seeing forms, colours, hearing sounds, bells, and so forth. Even some purely physical sensations - a shiver along the spine, a tingling in the finger tips - those examples have come to me, and they are hailed with delight and proclaimed on the housetops, to the dismay of those who have had no such experiences, and therefore consider their own meditations as failures. Surely, such trivial and often foolish manifestations do not constitute a succesful meditation. They are rather an obstacle, because they draw the attention away from the inner realities. It is better to see and hear nothing on the psychic planes, so that the consciousness, wholly turned inwards, may reach communion with the Divine and gradually unify the personal self with the Ego consciousness. "
