Under the sunshine of Spirit and holier Loves, the Souls of men are watered by Wisdom, whose influence and presence bloom like a flower of peace, whose action flashes out like a star filling the world with fragrance and light. Through Spirit, the living and the dead again unite and meet across the gulf of Time, they still are one, for Love is immortal, and where True Love has reigned supreme, Time has not power against Identity. Through the open portals of Spirit, the silent voices of the past now whisper music of welcomes and loves, lost hours of purer joys shall be heard once more sweetly echoing up the cliffs of immeasurable time. There are times when the Soul feels the living melodious words of Celestial Love, surcharged with Divine Influence to uplift a suffering blind world. Pilgrim on the Threshold, when you feel the Spirit of Sympathy about you, go out amongst men.
May you, dear reader, shake loose at times the prisoned wings of your Soul, and soar to that superior height of peace and find repose, and may it be also yours to find higher level of the heart’s True Love through the hurrying years of this short life. May you be doubly blessed by attaining at times visions of Spirit Homes and Departed Loves, which will give you nobler thoughts to gaze deep into the Sacred Mysteries of Infinity, where the new dawn begins as it illuminates the gloom and comes down the way of the past long night. Our immortal Loves are continually beckoning us to the gateway of that dim land we call the Past, sometimes even in sorrow looking down upon the follies of those who so soon must cross the portals of life’s shoreless sea, or whispering in council words if tenderest sympathy; and mankind heeds not. Only a very, very few find peace on these Spiritual heights and hear the voices of their beloved. Spirit Truth and communion with the immortals are fixed as the stars, more enduring than the mountains, and as unutterable as the ways of the Eternal.
A global awakening of consciousness is inevitable in a modern world that is so interconnected. This awakening will be a shock to those that are out of equilibrium with their surroundings, mainly, those that are subjectively in resistance to their objective existence.

Forever trust in Spirit to guide you and anchor your faith in Love. This perspective in life will lead one to their own personal Utopia, or allegorically speaking, to that heavenly state of consciousness one reaches through the cultivation of their Higher Self.
- Bret Trismegistus
As we see and await the flow of the silent, rising sea of justice, we must keep out of our hearts all revenge and anger, ever keeping before our eyes the Love of God and His great universal justice, as well as His universal love; abiding patiently, trusting and hoping. Nor must we doubt ourselves, nor the good in one another; nor that truth and goodness may be found in all things. We must ever ask that True Spirits, merciful and good, may be our guides and directors, that we may be merciful and good to all humanity. For there is love to be found in everything. Take this knowledge home into your heart, lest you be found fighting against a thing within some of your fellow-men, that is a reflex from the God of Light and Love.
Follow the seas that are silent, dear brethren and sisters, and the paths of wisdom which lie under the outstretched wings of Spirit, and Spirit will balance all your accounts.
By the grand tide that comes to all, we know there is a sea of time to rise some day, before which all who wrong us and oppress us will be swept away like leaves.
Ask and pray that you may be filled with Spiritual understanding.
Everything comes to the man who in silence can wait.
The Violet Cup of Spirit from the heights of Eternal Peace is offered to you; you have but to extend your hand and drink.
To drink at the Spiritual fountain brings an anchored Soul. And you, to who was allotted a more Divine Spark of Spiritual understanding and Soul Light, or to whom perchance a higher inner love was given at birth, must arise and show the way by nobler works and by unselfish charity, guiding and directing men to higher truth and love, and to the Light of the Eternal Spirit of Life.
Let the beauty of the Lord be upon thee. To love is to know, for love is the secret key to the hidden pathway that leads to Absolute power and to Knowledge of God, as a Spirit from the Inner Temple of Universal Love. For the Absolute is only found through love, feeling, and knowing which thy nobler life of Spirit shines on unquenched. O deathless love! O sweet harmonious song of peace! Soul of my Soul, heart of my heart, now I am filled with tender, rapturous calm.
Learn to be humble and content; free from pride. Learn to be poor and child-like in Spirit, if you would penetrate the sacred night which environs Truth. Learn charity, — love to God and love to man, — which is the true source of all Spiritual perfection.
Evil has no power in nature where Spirit Truth abounds. Learn always to look for natural causes in all extraordinary events, and when such causes are wanting, turn and look to God, who holds the key.
It does appear that the Sublime Absolute Truth of the Great Mysteries of Life and Death can only be found in understanding of both Male and Female Principles, for which the Christ appeared on this little globe to teach, that is the PATHWAY OF LOVE where all thought and action become controlled by the higher impulses of the heart, thereby illuminating the Soul into the Science of Divine Wisdom. While in this physical form man can never hope to know this in all its fullness. Yet he may fully quench his thirst and find peace and rest at the ever-flowing fountain of Eternal Love, “which if any man drink, it shall be to him a well of water springing up into Eternal Life.”
When Christianity grew into Theology, and Theology became Ecclesiasticism, it separated from True Esoteric Spirituality; while it increased in quantity and forms, it greatly decreased in value as to Spirituality and Truth. It passed from the Spirit of Love and a Living Savior, to a historical and biographical Christ. Its teachers could no longer communicate what they actually knew; finally reaching a blind faith in only that which its followers merely believed to be true. In place of the Gospel of Life by Love and Spirit, there was invented the Gospel of Death through Fear and Rewards.
