You must come to a place in the Middle Path of a kind of indifference to humanhood. You lose all desire to heal; you lose all desire to reform. But a wonderful thing happens. You lose all criticism of people who are living up to your human standards of what is right or wrong. You no longer differentiate between saint and sinner; you no longer differentiate between the good human being and the bad human being because into your vision comes the realization of true identity.“The Middle Path”, Spiritual Discernment by Joel S. Goldsmith

A child looks without judgement. And as adults we can reacquaint ourself with this possibility. To look upon life as a child. And yet: “To be innocent as a dove and as wise as a serpent.” Until then, , ” Above all things, to yourself be true. ” Because if one does not realise the possibility of childlike purity, one can at least be true. Thus, ” not be false to any man.” Meaning we stand in the light of truth as we are, where we are, in all honesty. Until the light changes. And this is waiting for grace. It is the, “how long my lord.”
