Awaiting by Svetoslav Roerich. 19441. "On the foundation of trust is raised the mountain of fidelity, which is the adornment of the Universe. In the concept of faithfulness are joined the best aspects of life–love, beauty, devotion, courage, and wisdom. Faithfulness is a result of wisdom developed over many lives. The opposites of faithfulness, false-heartedness and betrayal, are the shame of humanity. If faithfulness has such an antagonist, then it is truly at the summit of the mountain. ...Fidelity is valued as a great treasure. Cosmic Justice rewards fidelity generously..." [Supermundane, 619]


2. "Friends can be lightminded and careless because of lack of faithfulness. When We value something greatly, We guard it. Thus, let the bedrock of trust and the mountain of faithfulness stand firm." [Supermundane, 619]


3. "A faithful friend is faithful always and in everything. We will prefer a faithful friend to all others. ...Appreciate by loyalty and devotion, forgiving other shortcomings." [Facets of Agni Yoga 1954, 293]


4. "Adamant – thus was called this quality of loyalty in ancient times. Loyalty, steadfastness, and unwavering determination build a stronghold against doubt, wavering, and treason. ... The Thinker advised, “Remember that loyalty is a reliable shield.”" [Supermundane, 858]


5. "The soul that has fallen in love with the ideal Image has already ascended above the ordinary world, a fire has already lit up in it. ...Nothing contributes to the best achievements to such an extent as loyalty to high Ideals. A heart striving for love and beauty, of course, attracts them to itself. Believe in dreams and their vitality, love them and don't be afraid to build your ideals at too high a height. Forget the word “unworkable". Only that in which there is no power of love and self-sacrifice is not realized." [Letters of Helena Roerich in 9 Volumes - 8. 036]


6. "A sovereign asked a sage, “How do you tell a nest of treason from a stronghold of loyalty?” The wise man pointed to a crowd of gaily dressed horsemen and said, “There is a nest of treason.” Then he indicated a solitary wayfarer and said, “There is a stronghold of devotion, for solitude can betray nothing.”" [New Era Community, 86]
