TENTH TALK 203 not have your minds made up beforehand as to ex- actly what the Great World Teacher Himself will do, what He will say, and how He will carry Himself. It is for Him to settle all that, not for us. Do not run the risk of shutting yourself out from any real learn- ing, from any advantage, by forming prejudices and preconceptions beforehand. It is well that we should be careful of this. I have seen so many people fail through misunderstanding Madame Blavatsky or our President, that I cannot but see that there is at least a possibility that there may be those (good and earn- est people too) who will misunderstand even the great Lord of Love and Life when He shall come. Let us recognise Him to the full and be ready to follow Him, whether He does exactly what we expect Him to do^ or whether in His wisdom He chooses to do something quite, quite different.
