You master something because you work at it in steps; and as you work at it, you recognize that you’ve taken yourself as far as you can take yourself with the possibilities that are present to you. Then what?
Now, when it comes to most human beings — in that moment when they discover they’ve reached the limit of their present possibilities — most quit right there, saying: “Well, that’s all there is.”
But, when individuals have a love for something, and they run into a natural and necessary limitation given their present level of development, they don’t say, “That’s as far as there is to go.” That person understands — because he or she can feel it living within them — that something still greater exists. They just have to wait for it to come to them. And they work! They work with their limitation, not their excellence. They work through what they don’t know — not trying to prove over and over again what they do know — because they’re agreeing to allow the principles, the perfection, the powers from the world above them to come into them, educate them, and ultimately elevate them.
