Question: We waste a lot of time rehearsing for an appearance before vacationers. Does the time of preparation have to be some kind of balance between adaptation of artistic proficiency and our internal unity?
Answer: I suppose that this is not necessary. It is an amateur performance and you can’t surpass professional performers. You only have inner energy, warmth, and spontaneity, these attract and attune people to you. If you have that, the method works. And if not, then of course you will fail.
This is because you are doing spiritual work, and in this work the most important thing is preparation.
Answer: I must be together with my friends as a single complete whole that is now conveying a message to the external public. Even when I go out to them alone as a representative of my group, I feel that I am still within the group and get spiritual force from it which is what I put into them. I must feel myself as a responsible representative of my group, transmitting the Upper Light.
