However, CWL had a curious mixture of eccentric and profound spiritual qualities, and it was the latter that shone through in this particular book. What is timeless about this book is not (for once) portrayal of new aspects of knowledge as he did in his "Chakras", or "The Astral Plane" or "Man, Visible and Invisible", which were all good books. The Masters and the Path is the only book by CWL that gives a real insight into the man's spirituality, and his motives in his spiritual growth.
In my view, the energies driving this book, especially in its first half, show the author in a state close to initiation at some level. Hence, his sharing this part of himself is a priceless glimpse for any genuine student of the Path. Growth in understanding as distinct from growth in knowledge comes through this book.
It is now over 70 years since CWL's passing, and perhaps 80 years since he penned the words of this book. CWL will be remembered for his contraversy; his clairvoyance that was under scrutiny by sceptics, his misdemeanors and his "discovery" of Krishnamurti. However, I think this book above all of his others, shows his truest contribution to the Spiritual Cause.
An open mind and heart, plus the desire to greatly enrich one's life, are all you need to bring to this book - then prepare yourself for some rather startling truly marvelous results. Masters and the Path provides the means to be our own instruments in dramatically and positively changing our lives. I read this book many years ago (borrowed), and have always kept an eye open looking for an original hardcover copy for myself. I was very excited to find a source, Kessinger Publishing's Rare Prints, to order through Amazon (albeit a reprint). Overall, the book is a clear and practical guide while simultaneously being inspiring and uplifting.
