Sometimes it becomes necessary for the student to drop all thought of service for a while, in order to demonstrate in his own life what he can do for himself--both inwardly and outwardly. Before this time, any talk of service to others, especially to the Teacher, is premature. The philosophic ideal of ultimate service is agreed upon; however, there is no need to concern oneself about this until one has achieved enough knowledge and experience to make such service worthwhile.
