In one word, this ideal is that you are divine.
You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.
The more we come out and do good to others, the more our hearts will be purified, and God will be in them.
Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.
If money help a man to do good to others, it is of some value; but if not, it is simply a mass of evil, and the sooner it is got rid of, the better.
Never think there is anything impossible for the soul. It is the greatest heresy to think so. If there is sin, this is the only sin; to say that you are weak, or others are weak.
