Comet ‘West’, seen in 1976
Let us take an example in astronomy with the suns, the planets and comets. Comets are celestial bodies which do not revolve around any sun. Their trajectory is unpredictable, they are the vagabonds of space. The lives of people linked to the egocentric system are identical to those of wandering comets. They listen only to their whims and cannot be counted on. It is better to avoid meeting them because they are dangerous and, like comets, according to ancient traditions, their appearance in our lives is a sign of misfortune.
Unlike comets, the planets revolve around a center, a sun, and they travel through space on a regular trajectory. In the same way, disciples revolve around an Initiate or a Master. Each day, the life they lead, in contact with the center, teaches them something new and useful.
On the planets develop a flora, a fauna, a civilization. It is the same for people who resemble the planets. The motion of the planets is not perfectly regular, sometimes they move away, sometimes they approach the sun. This is what happens also with disciples: sometimes they approach and sometimes they distance from their ideal, and they alternately live in joy or pain.
Finally, beings who resemble suns are the Initiates and Great Masters of humanity. They carry within them light, warmth and life, and they gravitate around a center almost unknown to humans: God. They do not pass, like the planets, from light to darkness or from joy to sadness. They ignore the inner changes.

Extract from a lecture – Paris, April 2, 1938

And now I would like to read to you some more passages from the book; The Sacred Words of the Master, by Peter Deunov …
The soul lives in absolute purity. If the disciple does not receive the love of their Master as a soul, then this love will be perverted. If they do not receive this knowledge as a soul, the knowledge will be distorted.
Let disciples seek the light within themselves. So when the darkness appears outside, and when the storm rages, this inner light will illuminate their consciousness and the love for greatness will be born within them. May they preserve the inner light preciously.
When the soul receives anything with love, everything will be given to it through love. For God, this is a law.
Open your heart every day before the Beloved of your soul so that His eyes may penetrate its most secret depths. Open your soul every day before the Lord!
Humility is the expression of love towards the Supreme Being. The inaccessible summits send their blessings to the valleys.
The intelligence of nature has placed the sacred things on the highest, inaccessible summits, so that only the souls, ready to appreciate their true value, can rejoice in their pure beauty. The disciple should not communicate sacred things to the world.
