The Guru wanted his disciples to wear a special garb that would show the world their consecration. He called it giving witness.

I saw a lotus in a pond and said, “How beautiful you are, my dear! And how beautiful must be the God who made you!”

And the lotus blushed. She was the lovelier for being so conscious of her beauty.

At another pond I found a lotus preening her petals to catch my eye. “Look at my beauty,” she seemed to say, “and glorify my Maker.”

I walked on in disgust.

When I set out to edify, I seek to impress – and become a well-intentioned Pharisee.
