Chapter 8
Three reactions to my account of the birth of my mission
When in so many words I have addressed myself to you, my patient reader, it is because you now, if you continue to follow me, will have your capacity of love put to the test. By your attitude to the present account you will have to choose between two ways of reacting, unless you do not at all feel qualified to side with or against me and so remain neutral. If this is not the case, you will either understand me and rejoice at my disclosure and start along the path leading to redemption, towards perennial peace on earth, so devoutly desired, or you will be irritated, grow intolerant, consider me a minion of darkness, and try to obstruct my way or harm me, thereby taking the path leading to war, grief, mutilation, and suffering, wholly irrespective of how religious you may consider yourself. In the latter case you will belong to the category of whom it will be most proper to say, "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do."
      This is for your guidance in your reflections, so that you may not in advance, without basic circumspection, try to oppose what you are now going to learn.
      And let me once more remind you of the superb admonition of your own religion: "Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation; the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak." "Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall."
