UNREALITY.

- Section 3 -

 

Job 14:1,2
1 Man that is born of a woman is
of few days, and full of trouble.
2 He cometh forth like a flower,
and is cut down: he fleeth also as a
shadow, and continueth not.

***
Psalm 62:9
9 Surely men of low degree are
vanity, and men of high degree are a
lie: to be laid in the balance, they
are altogether lighter than vanity.

***
Romans 8:20-22
20 For the creature was made
subject to vanity, not willingly, but
by reason of him who hath subjected
the same in hope,
21 Because the creature itself also
shall be delivered from the bondage
of corruption into the glorious
liberty of the children of God.
22 For we know that the whole
creation groaneth and travaileth in
pain together until now.

Christ was not crucified - that doom 
Was Jesus' part; 
For Sharon's rose must bud and bloom 
In human heart. * 
*God was manifest in the Flesh- St.Paul

Enable us to know, -as in heaven, so on earth,- God is omnipotent, supreme.

(Antagonistic sources)
The perfect Mind sends forth perfection, for God is Mind.
Imperfect mortal mind sends forth its own resemblances, of which
the wise man said, "All is vanity."

Thus olden faith's pale star now blends 
In seven-hued white! 
Life, without birth and without end, 
Emitting light! 

Give us grace for to-day;
feed the famished affections. 

Cardinal point 3 - Column 3 - Extended



(Truth's witness)
Spiritual sense, contradicting the material senses, involves
intuition, hope, faith, understanding, fruition, reality.
Material sense expresses the belief that mind is in matter. This
human belief, alternating between a sense of pleasure and pain,
hope and fear, life and death, never reaches beyond the boundary
of the mortal or the unreal. When the real is attained, which is
announced by Science, joy is no longer a trembler, nor is hope a
cheat.
