“We do not live in a world of dreams, but in an Universe which while relative, is real so far as our lives and actions are concerned.

Our business in the Universe is not to deny its existence, but to live, using the Laws to rise from lower to higher – living on, doing the best that we can under the circumstances arising each day, and living, so far as is possible, to our biggest ideas and ideals.

The true Meaning of Life is not known to men on this plane – if, indeed, to any – but the highest authorities, and our own intuitions, teach us that we will make no mistake in living up to the best that is in us, so far as is possible, and realising the Universal tendency in the same direction in spite of apparent evidence to the contrary.

We are all on The Path – and the road leads upward ever, with frequent resting places.”
