3g6 TALKS ON " AT THE FEET OF THE MASTER " because you know things are moving fast now. The World Teacher will come soon now; the force which is being outpoured is tremendous^it is far above the average, and because all that plays round you, to some extent you who are trying to prepare for His Coming may modify not only your next life, but the remaining part of this. Never allow yourself to feel sad or depressed. Depression is wrong, because it infects others and makes their lives harder, which you have no right to do. The re- fore if ever it comes to you, throw it of? at once. Anybpdy who suffers from serious depression will shake his head, and say ; u That is very good advice,. if one could only take it." But when depression comes, it so seizes upon one that it cannot be thrown off. I believe that that, in many cases, is true. Merely to think that depression is wrong and that one must not yield oneself to it, is not sufficient; but there is a thought which is sufficient, and that is the very one which is put before you here. " Depression is wrong because it affects one's fellow-students and it makes their way harder for them. Whatever I feel^ I am not going to show it. I am not going to allow this depression, just because it is making things harder for other people." I believe that will give the man strength when nothing else would. As for the rest, you see it speaks of making their lives harder : you know quite well that many of the unpleasant things that come to you come through the other people.
