……Peace, cheerfulness, contentment, dispassion, fearlessness, unperturbed state of mind under all conditions indicate that you are advancing in the spiritual path.
Spiritual progress is not measured by Siddhis or powers, but only by the depth of your bliss in meditation.
These are the sure tests of your spiritual progress:
a. Is your interest in inner spiritual activity and outer Sadhana increasing day after day?
c. Has your personal awareness come to a possession of a sense of peace and strength which men who are not aspirants do not find in their everyday lives?
f. Has there come into the conscious activities of your everyday life, the active function of a new delightful angle of vision, a new perspective, a strong sense of self-possession, steadily growing conviction of your dependence upon and intimate relation with the all-pervading Divinity?
If, your answers to all these questions or to any one of them are in the affirmative, be absolutely sure that you are progressing, and progressing speedily in the spiritual path.
