4 Mighty & Noble Combats #184
One of the revealing statements in spiritual life tells of the eskimo who must watch snow conditions very carefully every day in order that his survival, and that of his family, is assured. The meaning is that a sadhaka, or adept spiritual aspirant, must observe his/her own consciousness daily for signs of both dangers and realizations arising there, for his spiritual progress depends upon it. The wisdom chart concerning the Four Mighty & Noble Combats provides a simple and straightforward explanation for this necessity, like a sentinel on watch day and night for signs of progress or retardation. All is indeed well in the kingdom of the soul when such a watchman is on duty and scrutinizing the scene.
