The Rules of the Road; I

The first rule says:
The Road is trodden in the full light of day, thrown upon the Path by Those Who know and lead. Naught can then be hidden, and at each turn, a man must face himself.

At every turn a disciple makes - in order to serve - he or she faces their own shadow cast by the light from those ahead on the Path. This shadow is the obstruction to the Light resulting from the imperfections in the disciple’s own service expression. Perhaps this shadow-casting is the reason why service is said to be the way of advancement. No clearer way of seeing one’s own faults could exist.

IV. Three things the Pilgrim must avoid. The wearing of a hood, a veil which hides his face from others; the carrying of a water pot which only holds enough for his own wants; the shouldering of a staff without a crook to hold.

Det er tre ting pilegrimen må unngå:

  1. Å skule sitt ansikt med en hette
  2. Å ha med seg av vannkanne med kun nok vann til ham selv og
  3. Å ha en kjepp over skulderen uten en hake å holde noe i

II. Upon the Road the hidden stands revealed. Each sees and knows the villainy of each. And yet there is, with that great revelation, no turning back, no spurning of each other, and no shakiness upon the Road. The Road goes forward into day.

"Upon the Road the hidden stand revealed. Each sees and knows the villainy of each."

The fifth rule says:
"Each Pilgrim on the Road must carry with him what he needs: a pot of fire, to warm his fellowmen; a lamp, to cast its rays upon his heart and show his fellowmen the nature of his hidden life; a purse of gold, which he scatters not upon the Road but shares with others; a sealed vase, wherein he carries all his aspiration to cast before the feet of Him Who waits to greet him at the gate-a sealed vase."

III. Upon that Road one wanders not alone. There is no rush, no hurry. And yet there is no time to lose. Each Pilgrim, knowing this, presses his footsteps forward, and finds himself surrounded by his fellowmen. Some move ahead; he follows after. Some move behind; he sets the pace. He travels not alone.

The sixth rule says:
"The Pilgrim, as he walks upon the Road, must have the open ear, the giving hand, the silent tongue, the chastened heart, the golden voice, the rapid foot, and the open eye which sees the light. He knows he travels not alone. "

Pilegrimen, som han vandrer på stien, må ha det åpne øre, den givende hand, den stille tonge, det rene hjertet, den gyldne stemme, den raske fot og det åpne øye som ser lyset. Han vet han ikke vandrer alene.
