"Brother Boyan learns Patience" [1]

{Memoir from Boris Nikolov} [2]

Brother Boyan went to the Master on account of some work - some important and urgent work. At the same time, a sister came and started to recount some exciting episode to the Master. She talked to him for a long time, while brother Boyan waited; the Master, however, patiently listened to the story. Just as the sister finished and left, another sister came in and began [re-]telling the same episode to the Master. She talked for about two hours. The Master listened to it patiently once more. She finished her story and left: the Master did not tell her that he had just heard the same episode. Well, the sister went out, and a third sister came in - she also told the Master the same episode - again for quite a long time. The Master did not say anything and listened to her patiently as well. Brother Boyan stood by waiting all the while, and marveled at the patience and delicacy of the Master.

Do not restrict the Divine within you, and do not humiliate It. It gives value to man. When you know this, you should be careful towards every soul, with every man, for the sake of the Divine in him. Respect the soul for the price which God has determined for her. Do not humiliate your soul, nor the soul of anybody else. If you do this, you will unavoidably be stricken by misfortunes, because you tear the connection between all beings and destine yourselves to be a wandering star, which must become extinguished.


[1] Boyan Boev (1883-1963) was a close follower of the Master Peter Deunov (Beinsa Douno).
[2] Boris Nikolov (1900-1991) met the Master when young and became a follower thereafter. He played a key role in the preservation of many authentic works containing the Word of the Master Peter Deunov (Beinsa Douno).
