THE CONSPICUOUS

Conspicuousness and meekness are not contradictory terms. Inconspicuousness is not the correlative of meekness, though it is sometimes so construed. The Bible calls upon us to be meek, but meekness does not mean obscurity; meekness is not seen in avoidance or fear of publicity, but in the wisdom which remains undeflected and unimpressed by it.

To accomplish in any direction that which is of value to others is a service which deserves recognition. Yet to desire recognition for its own sake, to seek to be conspicuous for self-gratification, is to lose sight of the only true value of service; it is to leave the plane of demonstrating the qualities of Mind for that level where mortal desire, expectation, or exaction claims to be in operation. Moreover, the moment mere personal motives are permitted to occupy thought, the essentially impersonal evidence of the nature of the Christ is to that extent weakened or defaced.
