The Attainment Of Excellence

"There is but one course of procedure for the successful attainment of

excellence in any field of labor or thought, and that is by study and

training, by observation, by persevering application and determined

effort, by readiness to learn, and responsiveness to every influence

which will help to smooth the pathway to the desired success. The

intelligent medium who follows this course will not go blindly on

groping in the obscurity of the psychic realm, and becoming the tool for

unseen and unknown agents, but he will unfold his powers, and by

co-operating with them will learn to know and trust his preceptors,

until he may possibly become as a spirit among spirits, the conscious

possessor of such knowledge regarding his own spiritual nature and

powers that he will be a ready instrument in the hands of enlightened

spirit people, with whom he can knowingly work for human good."
