Bathed in the lightning-standing-still
which is Nirvana, I perceive the
imprisoned lightning’s in all things ...
the Light which is bright - [in] the man
evolved; the Light which is glory - the
Superman, the Master.
Mr C. W. L.eadbeater, the distinguished clairvoyant, described the
book as 'a very remarkable
production - a valiant attempt to
describe the indescribable .... There
is living fire in his (author's) words.'
I have myself tried to convey in words some-
thing of that super celestial atmosphere, as you
may read in The Masters and (he Path, but I
think my brother Bishop has been more success-
full than I. There is a living fire in his words.
True, that which he has seen cannot be portrayed; yet the enthusiasm which he throws
into the essay is so infectious that we feel
ourselves on the very verge of understanding.
Much of upliftment, much of help he certainly
can and does give us; if we cannot yet know
all, at least we are nearer to the knowing, at
least we are encouraged by the testimony of
one who already knows. And where he stands
now, all will stand one day.
So let us unite in outpouring our heartfelt
gratitude for this rare book which he has
given us; and the best way in which we can
show it is to aid him and to follow him in the
splendid work which he is doing in the service
of our Holy Masters.

with my strenuousness on other planes. This
is probably the case with everybody, but it
came as a great surprise to me on the physical
plane. I began at once to realize that I must
cease to live in these plane-tight compartments. r must begin to live on many planes
simultaneously. I began to realize that the
one life unites all planes and all things;
and that in reality there is nothing which
should be indifferent to me. Everything is
related to everything else, and everything
modifies everything else. Why, the far-
distant Sun Himself presses physically upon
every part of the world, as science itself
