Those who are truly great accept to serve others to help them see more clearly and to find the best solutions to their problems, even if these problems seem insignificant to them. Spiritual Masters and the wise do not fear lowering themselves to the level of those who are small, weak and ignorant, for they know that in doing so, they will not descend from the summit they have reached within themselves.

They never use their superiority to dominate others.

They know that the higher they have risen, the more humility they must show.

Having superior moral and spiritual virtues is all well and good, but it does not suffice. For the next question is that of their attitude and behaviour.

No knowledge or spiritual power gives them the right to dominate others and to impose themselves on them.
May each person rise as high as they can, but only within themselves; on the outside they must not put themselves up on a pedestal.

There is no sense in elevating themselves if it is to later trample on their fellow human beings. Initiates and the wise know how to manifest their grandeur through love, kindness and gentleness.
