Understand first that you are not the person you believe yourself to be. What you think yourself to be is mere suggestion or imagination. You have no parents; you were not born, nor will you die. Either trust me when I tell you so, or arrive to it by study and investigation. The way of total faith is quick; the other is slow but steady. Both must be tested in action. Act on what you think is true – this is the way to Truth.
