Inherently beyond one’s control

Love for a Perfect Master, however deep and devotional it may be, does not necessarily affect the original nature of a person because, despite apparent superficial changes, the individual nature remains the same up to the seventh plane. On the seventh plane, there is no individual mind, therefore no individual nature.

This nature is so powerful that it continually strives to assert itself, and being inherently beyond one’s control, even influences the expression of pure love by often assuming irritating and embarrassing forms.

So to keep the love of My disciples for Me unalloyed, I have to humor less noble qualities of human nature, such as jealousy, pride, etc. Otherwise, there is always the danger of these qualities gaining supremacy over love and changing it into a feeling of opposition — thus creating hindrances in My work.

-Love Alone Prevails, p164
