Adopt a system that has been in existence for thousands of years
The coming order will be established and will prove itself. Every system has to prove itself and, when it turns out to be ineffective, is replaced by another and then another, and so on. This is how humans stumble their way forward until, eventually, they find the right solutions. In reality, instead of continuing with an endless succession of painful and very costly experiments, it would be possible for people to immediately adopt a system that has been in existence for thousands of years. Unfortunately, at the moment, everyone wants to experiment and discover the great truths for themselves. True, this is one way of doing it.
Why stumble in the dark?
Eventually, everyone will reach their goal this way, but it will take a very long time—hundreds if not thousands of years. The Creator has given all human beings the same ability to arrive at the truth, but the time that this takes is not the same for all. Those who accept to be instructed and guided by a Master save themselves a great deal of time, expense and suffering, whereas those who refuse this rapid and effective means will arrive at the same truths but thousands of years later. They prefer to tread a lone path; they want to be free and refuse to submit to or follow anyone else and, although they will eventually reach their goal, it will take them a very long time.
It could take thousands of years to discover the truth
This attitude is particularly prevalent amongst intellectuals. Every now and then, one finds an exception to the general rule, but they are rare. I myself am one of those exceptions. Fortunately for me, Providence saved me by depriving me of all kinds of intellectual faculties that others have received in abundance. It seems to me that Providence has not been quite so kind to them: they refuse every authority and rely exclusively on their own resources, with the result that it will be thousands of years before they discover the truth.
