TWENTY-SEVENTH TALK 54l physical plane, you will not in the least be disturbed ; you have done your best. The work was done tqr the sake of others. If you were looking for result or reward you would* be thinking of yourself; and so you would be falling short of the perfect unselfishness. He who is perfectly unselfish can never be wounded or hurt by anything that is said or done ; a person who has a feeling which can be hurt is thinking of himself» Now to have feelings is human nature; but you know, if you want to succeed along this line, you must to that extent become superhuman. You are aiming at becoming something more than the average mars, and that is precisely one of the ways—that you must not have any feelings that can be hurt or wounded. It means that you are thinking of yourself, and you must not think of yourself. The perfect love which is to be held towards every one involves so much. A few words later on we shall come to the sins against love: Gossip, Cruelty and Superstition. But if your love were perfect, you would never be * cruel, fon would never gossipy because you would take care not to discuss the faults or failings of one you love,—certainly never to any- body else, which is the essence of gossip. Just as you would not publish abroad the failings of your own son» so you would not publish abroad the failings of any- body else's son. There is no more far-reaching sentence than that—that perfect love and perfect unselfishness practically cover the w^ole ground.
