(Dec. 1952) Ordinary persons are caught up in the universe and its allurements, though the entire universe is nothing but a shadow of God or Truth. The Masters are always immersed in the joy of union with God and can never be caught up in the mazes of the illusory universe. Just as ordinarily we do not pay any attention to shadows, so the Masters do not pay any attention to the universe except to divert the attention of humanity from the shadow to the substance.
