Step by step, the disciple is prepared for his soul’s testings on the Path. These are sometimes given to him when least expected through family and friends. Whatever his environment, the disciple finds that the master is acting either directly or indirectly through his associates to test his mastery of the law of harmony and his correct use of the Godly attributes of Power, Wisdom, and Love. And ultimately the testing is to see whether or not the chela is willing to make the required sacrifices concerning the lesser self that are necessary in order for him to receive the mantle of the Greater Self, his own beloved I AM Presence, as well as that of the master.
