bathing themselves in that, and that is good. That
is an enormous advance on all ordinary types of
thoughts, and yet you might do better even than that.
Instead of vaguely bathing yourselves in a thought
which has no precision about it, you might let your
intense devotion to your Master take the form of
thinking,c< What can I do for Him now, what can I do

I give to someone by my thought ?" If you are doing
that with your thought, you are working for the
Master as well as thinking of Him ; and I can assure
