Enter into perfect harmony with the Eternal Law, which is Wisdom, Love, and Peace.
THIS divine state is, and must ever be, incomprehensible to the merely
personal. Personality, separateness,
selfishness, are one and the same, and are the antithesis of wisdom and divinity. By the unqualified surrender of the personality, separateness and selfishness cease, and man enters into the possession of his divine heritage of immortality and infinity.
Such surrender of the personality is regarded by the worldly and selfish mind as the most grievous of all calamities, the most irreparable loss, yet it is the one supreme and incomparable blessing, the only real and lasting gain. The mind unenlightened upon the inner laws of being and upon the nature and destiny of its own life clings to transient appearances, things which have in them no enduring substantiality, and so clinging, perishes, for the time being, amid the shattered wreckage of its own illusions.
Love is universal, supreme, all-sufficing. This is the realisation of selfless love.

Renunciation precedes regeneration.

seek in dissipation, excitement, and
abandonment to unworthy pleasures,
is found only in the life which reverses
all this-the life of self-control.
Law, not confusion, is the dominating
principle in the universe; justice, not
injustice is the soul and substance of life;
and righteousness, not corruption, is the
moulding and moving force in the spiritual
government of the world. This being so,
man has but the right himself to find that
the universe is right.

I shall have solved the mystery of life;
I shall be sure,
When I am free from hatred, lust and
I am in Truth, and Truth abides in me;
I shall be safe, and sane, and wholly free,
When I am pure.
