But the shower will reach even their dry hearts.

145.   Deem it a blessing to bring light amidst the dark and inimical hosts.  We have determined to reveal the ways of enlightening cruel hearts - to soften them with the balm of beauty.  But the iron of the dark spirit is colder and stronger than the words of bliss.  Only with great travail can the hand of Truth bend the prison bars. From above rain words of Truth, and men have unfurled umbrellas to shield themselves from the downpour of God's clouds.  But the shower will reach even their dry hearts.  We strike evil blind, and by lightning illumine the path of Good.  We send the gift of understanding to the manifested hearts.  Only the blind will doubt - have patience for the future steps.     -Leaves of Morya's Garden 1924

574.  One had missed collecting his debts; one had missed his chance to marry; one had forgotten to convict an offender; one had failed to gather his profits; one had missed bargains; one had lost the favor of the rajah.  In short the Teaching had apparently caused losses to each one.      -Morya:  Agni Yoga 1929
