“Thinking, understanding, reasoning, willing, call not these Soul! They are its actions, but they are not its essence.” -AEP
It is OK to use quotes from the readings and include them in your postings but these should not substitute for answers–they can be used to help make your point but then you can explain what you think it means and that way your teacher will be able to better discern if you understand more deeply or are just parroting what was heard or said. The parrot does not transform but the mechanic who knows how a car engine works and is put together can tare it down and rebuild it. The aspirant must be like the mechanic who understands the nature of Creation and can deconstruct and construct it and in so doing dispel its mystery and delusion.
