To a pioneering spirit who was discouraged by frequent criticism the Master said, “Listen to the words of the critic.  He reveals what your friends hide from you.”  But he also said, “Do not be weighed down by what the critic says.  No statue was ever erected to honor a critic.  Statues are for the criticized”.

Much advance publicity was made for the address the Master would deliver on “The Destruction of the World” and a large crowd gathered at the monastery grounds to hear him.  The address was over in less than a minute.  All he said was:  “These things will destroy the human race: politics without principle, progress without compassion, wealth without work, learning without silence, religion without fearlessness and worship without awareness.
