SUPREME CLAIM OF ONE'S MASTER
The supreme claim of the Master cannot be challenged or limited even by the spontaneous reverence that the disciple is bound to feel for Masters other than the one who has accepted him. All Perfect Masters are one in their consciousness, and it is absurd to imagine any grades between them.
Though one Master is not greater than another, the disciple must, for his own purposes, place the claim of his own Master over and above the claims of other Masters — until he transcends the domain of duality and realizes the unity of all Life. Mental energy would be dissipated unless there arose a supremely imperative claim among the many conflicting claims of life.
Exclusive concentration upon one Master is therefore usually indispensable for the gathering up of the dispersed mental energy of the disciple.
