"The treasure which the mystics of all ages seek is the gold within the soul. All true aspirants seek to transmute the base metal within their being into pure gold of the spirit, and the Wise Men bring to you the gold...
They bring you frankincense, too, the gift of gentleness and sweetness. This sweet fragrance the wise teachers or radiant ones bring to you to absorb into your soul.
They bring yet another gift, the gift of myrrh, bitterness. Some call it sorrow and pain. Pain is necessary for the soul, so that it may grow spiritually and emotionally. Through sorrow the soul enters into joy."
