Obtaining Mental Development

Q: How shall I obtain mental development? Can it be had only by reading?

A man may have read much and yet be mentally undeveloped. It is by thinking, understanding, receiving mental influences from his intellectual superiors that a man’s mind develops.

Q: Where does the discriminating power of the mind or the psychic come from?

It belongs to them by nature — only the mind can err, the psychic does not.
