4:17 As all numbers are series of ones,
so all things are as, at, one,
as a calculus of infinity
wherein all “ones” are lastly One.
4:18 The business of life demands
our whole attention practically;
and only now and then can we
contemplate its reality.
5:1 These:– Meaning, Love, and Unity
are as the Holy Trinity:
Meaning the Father, Love the Son
and Unity the Mother
5:1.1 Love in man creates unity
and love in woman preserves it.
What seems destructive in such souls
is inverse creation for the whole.
5:2 First God was outward; now: inward.
First God was “He,” now He’s “It.”
First He was Father-son-Holy Ghost;
Now It’s Meaning-Love-Unity.
5:3 Survey the unity in this world
that manifests itself as one:
in all diversity of forms,
in things together or apart.
5:3.1 If your love is deep or intense
beyond yourself into this life,
you will joy when that bond is fast,
and grieve, as well, when it is lax.
5:6 If you love only what is good
or easy, or beneficial,
then love in part is your life’s worth;
for love in full is to love in pain.
5:9 Pleasure we want, but pain we shun;
thereby limiting our short life.
Let us live with pain a little more
so to enrich our life in love.
5:9.1 If in love you aspire to live
then to its center aim your will
where all is compact of fire pure,
where Meaning lights and frees our world.
5:9.2 Once I sought within my mind
the meaning of Love’s reality.
Partial answers only I found,
until I knew that love is meaning.
5:9.3 Love is meaning, meaning is love;
one is inside, the other out:
Meaning gives to love its will,
while love gives unity its world.
5:9.4 I am love and so are you
and so is everything in being;
and though we live in strife as well,
we’re all together for or against.
5:9.5 All will to power is a quantum leap
from less to more, from here to there;
more free the will, more might the power,
until is reached the power to will.
5:9.6 Life in all its diversity
fascinates the mind of man;
for each mind creates its world of sense
in ordered multiplicity.
5:9.7 Each ordered multiplicity
is an object of structured form
in striking uniformity
of all its parts in unity.
5:9.8 To look up at the sky in sighs,
and witness nature’s wondrous sights:
white sun beaming through fleecy clouds;
I know the glory of my mind.
5:10 Soul is but an image of love
of our essential divinity
and of our immortality.
5:10.1 See your soul as an inward image
representing your divinity:
as Meaning of the world in love
5:10.2 Our soul is love personalized:
To give an image where’s there’s none;
“soul” gives meaning to our being—
personal to the impersonal.
5:10.3 Love your world of divinity, yes;
but not that you should scorn your life;
for life is your reflection of
eternal still in vital flux.
5:10.4 “Meaning” for the contemplative mind;
“Love” we enact in bond with others;
“Unity” we see as the whole;
and “Bliss” is for the mystical.
5:10.5 Bliss is pleasure taken from here
unto eternity, infinitely:
in sheer power of luminance,
in purity of consciousness.
5:15 Ask: “Am I committed to life,
to eternity, or to both?
If to one or the other—be it;
if to both, then unify them.
5:15.1 Love: a building up, a drawing to;
strife: a breaking down, a turning from.
Both are part of nature’s way
to keep the world a separate one.
