We had made a number of short trips from our headquarters. On one of these trips [Masters] accompanied us to a village where a temple called The Silence Temple, The Temple Not Made by Hands, is located.
The temple is very beautiful ... It is about six thousand years old, is made of white marble, and has never needed repairs, as a piece chipped off replaces itself, as was proven by member of our party.
Emil said, "This is called the Temple of Silence, the Place of Power. Silence is power, for when we reach the place of silence in mind, we have reached the place of power - the place where all is one, the one power - God. "Be still and know that I am God." Diffused power is noise. Concentrated power is silence.
When, through concentration (drawing to a center), we have brought all of our forces into one point of force, we have contacted God in silence, we are one with Him and hence one with all power. Only as we turn from the without to the silence of the within can we hope to make conscious union with God. We will realize that his power is for us to use and we will use it at all times. Then we will know that we are one with His power.
Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East
by Baird T. Spalding
The Masters teach through example and clearly demonstrate how we could all lift ourselves and live lives that are for most of us beyond our wildest imagination. Yet it all begins with expanded vision and the development of our inner resources.
