Your greatness is equal to how much you make others great. By the greatness you create in others, your greatness will be measured. A great person is a person who creates great people around him or her.
The Tibetan Master says, "Many initiates, when coming to the portal of initiation, were refused." They asked, "Lord, what are You talking about? For eighty years we have done everything possible to be an initiate. We did it, and now that we have come to the door, why are You not opening it?" He will open the door and ask, "Whom did you bring?" "Nobody." "Get lost! You were working for yourself."
