Transcend The Infantile
You must find a Transmitter, you must find the Spiritual Master, find the Agency of Transmission. This is as important as having an actual mother and an actual father, even though the Spiritual Master is not a parent. But even if you do find such a Source, you must overcome the tendencies in yourself that make it impossible for you to use that Source, to connect with It and become a practitioner. And you will not become a true practitioner until you can observe and understand and go beyond the neuroses associated with your infantile and childhood experiences.
–Adi Da Samraj, 20 August, 1983
