22. The Master said, “Those of inferior spiritual capacities fail to progress due to being entangled in desires for food, sex, wealth, and so forth. Those of average spiritual capacities fail to progress due to being trapped in the desires for fame and reputation. Those whose spiritual capacities are somewhat more advanced fail to progress far due to being trapped in appearances. Once you are detached from the five desires and the four signs, you will be of advanced spiritual capacity.”
