12.

We attend lectures and read books, argue and reason about God and soul, religion and salvation.

These are not spirituality, because spirituality does not exist in books or theories or in philosophies.

It is not in learning or reasoning, but in actual inner growth.

Even parrots can learn things by heart and repeat them.

If you become learned, what of it?

Asses can carry whole libraries.

So when real light will come, there will be no more of this learning from books — no book-learning.

The man who cannot write even his own name can be perfectly religious, and the man with all the libraries of the world in his head may fail to be.

Learning is not a condition of spiritual growth; scholarship is not a condition.

The touch of the Guru, the transmittal of spiritual energy, will quicken your heart.

Then will begin the growth.

That is the real baptism by fire.

No more stopping.

You go on and go on.

Thank you for reading

 JAIHIND.
