Life is more than motion, it is Music; more than rest, it is Peace ; more than work, it is Duty ; more than labour, it is Love.

October Twentieth.

LET the impure turn to Purity, and they shall be pure; let the weak resort to Strength, and they shall be strong; let the ignorant fly to Knowledge, and they shall be wise. All things are manís, and he chooses that which he will have. To-day he chooses in ignorance, to-morrow he shall choose in wisdom. He shall " work out his own salvation," whether he believe it or not, for he cannot escape himself, nor transfer to another the eternal responsibility of his own soul. By no theological subterfuge shall he trick the Law of his being, which shall shatter all his selfish makeshifts and excuses for right thinking and right doing. Nor shall God do for him that which it is destined his soul shall accomplish for itself.

Life is more than enjoyment, it is Blessedness.


Twentieth Morning

Sympathy given can never be waste.

One aspect of sympathy is that of
Pity-pity for the distressed or pain-
stricken, with a desire to alleviate
or help them in their sufferings.
The world needs more of this
divine quality.

ďFor pity makes the world
Soft to the weak, and noble
for the strong.

Another form of sympathy is that
of rejoicing with others who are more
successful than ourselves, and though
their success were our own.

Twentieth Evening

Sweet are companionships, pleasures, and
material comforts, but they change and
fade away. Sweeter still are Purity, Wisdom,
and the knowledge of Truth, and these
never change nor fade away.

He who attained to the possession of
spiritual things can never be deprived of
his source of happiness; he will never have
to part company with it, and wherever he
goes in the whole universe, he will carry
his possessions with him. His spiritual
end will be the fulness of joy.
