Then work and love.
Ponder on this, it is the goal of all.
Occultly speaking, you may find that you stand alone upon the physical plane. You may lead a lonely life if there is no single person in your environment who shares with you the same quality or grade of spiritual perception. Life has its constant points of revelation, some of which we recognize, and others which pass by unnoted. The revelation of a certain type of spiritual loneliness is one through which all disciples have to pass; it is a test of that occult detachment which every disciple has to master.
This solitariness has to be faced and understood, and it results in two realizations: first, a realization of your exact point on the ladder of evolution, or on the Path. Secondly, a realization of an intuitive perception of the point in evolution of those we contact along the way of life.
In this solitude, there is no morbiness, there is no harsh withdrawal, and there is no aspect of separateness. There is only the “place where the disciple stands, detached and unafraid, and in that place of utter quiet, the Master comes and solitude is not.”
