244 TALKS ON (< AT THE FEET OF THE MASTER " might get out of it, but because anything a little out of the ordinary way is in itself interesting, and there is generally something to be learned from it. So note well everything that it says, but use your reason with regard to it. Do not, of course, take the opposite course and start by denying that there is a revelation. That again is a dangerous thing to do ; one should never hastily deny. I have had many years of this sort of work, and I have assuredly learnt that—not to be in haste to deny anything. One may think of a thing as very improbable ; it is not safe to say that it is impossible. So much happens, and there are so many and such varied possibilities, that it is never safe to deny outright. Use always your reason and common- sense ; listen respectfully to the revelation whatever it may be, but do not let it affect your conduct in any way. Your conduct should be the result of your own decision—of your own reasoned thought, and not of something that somebody else, you do not know who, tells you. By all means receive the advice ; it is most likely kindly meant, but do not follow it unless it seems reasonable; for reason and'common-sense are the highest things you have. They are given you to check all these other impressions. Do not forget to use them, merely because the impression comes to you from the astral plane instead of the physical plane. For that is all the more reason why you should use them.
