Hi Lyonna ,
If we believe that we are masters than we are, the truth of love is that simple...When we love ourselves enough
we will be able to see that we were all along,since we were created in the image our creator...
Sometimes things are that simple,it throws us off balance..We believe,we create,therefore we are the masters of our own destiny,what else other than that we are God in plural..
Love and light

Hi two Lions, and Doc: I am sooooo confused..."masks" and "masters." Could Lyon and Auror define what each means? The words are so pregnant with meaning that I don't know quite how to take them. We all wear "masks" in that we have persona (or personhood, if you prefer) and we all might be adept and crafty at something, i.e. a master or masterful. However, "master" implies control over others by virtue authority...and I don't think that this is what you are talking about, or is it? For example, the martial arts have masters and REIKI has masters. My definition above is quite acccurate in the hierachy of each of these disciplines. Help me try to understand!

personalities sometimes apear as a mask,yes i agree with you all..We also have our own truths,but in the end,all this boils down to is loving ourselves and accepting ourselves,for what we are,we are all masters..We dont need anything more,to prove to ourselves what we really are..Simplicity is the closest form of perfection if i may say..Everytime we evolve more consciously,a certain part of our persona disapears ,in the end we stand before ourselves and realize that indeed we had to have personalities,but it was never nescesary to have a mask..We are what we are...

Maybe the term Master, isn't about controlling others in the spiritual realm. It's controlling ones self in the physical form.
Other people do look up to those and want to learn by them, because they have Mastered their goal. This is not done to control others, but to help them control themselves over the need to be materialistic, powerful, or egotistical. Balance is a key to being a master. Once anyone understands that both negative and positive are needed, one can be master over both.
A wise man once said: You cannot push a river, but you can flow with it. ~Unknown
To flow along with life has harmony, a natural balance. To be off balance will be like trying to get the river to change directions. Impossible. Might as well give up..... Many people give up to easily and do not understand to master ones self is to just go along with the flow. It really is that easy.
