Excerpted from the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna p.459
The Master Said:
"Only the small-minded seek occult powers.
If one asks something of a rich man,
one no longer receives any favour from him.
The rich man doesn't allow such a person
to ride in the same carriage with him.
Even if he does, he doesn't allow the man to sit near him.
Therefore love without any selfish motive is best."
