Markings, Part 8

Read first, if you don't know what these are.

36. "For man shall commune with all creatures to his profit, but enjoy God alone." That is why no human being can be a permanent source of happiness to another. (101)

37. "What! He is now going to try to teach me!" -- Why not? There is nobody from whom you cannot learn. Before God, who speaks through all men, you are always in the bottom class of nursery school. (104)

38. Before Thee in humility, with Thee in faith, in Thee in peace. (104)

39. Prayer, crystallized in words, assigns a permanent wave length on which the dialogue has to be continued, even when our mind is occupied with other matters. (106)

40. "Those scarred by suffering, those who have beheld --" You can, if you choose, enter into their consciousness and learn -- without having gone through their hard school -- to see and hear like one who "hath not" and from whom "shall be taken away even that which he hath." (111)
