In this journey you have set out upon, you play a dual
role, you are both doctor and patient. You are both hu-
man and spiritual, wise and foolish, good and bad, civi-
lized and savage. There are those who say there is no
evil. Let us not be confused for there are subtle contra-
dictions that lead to trouble. “In him there is no variable-
ness neither shadow of turning,” he is the light in whom
there is no darkness at all; but where light is not, where
destructive human emotions are in control, there is the
manifestation of darkness, there is human savagery,
there is chaos.

When the individual wakes to the knowledge that God is
to be known and turns his face toward light he takes the
frst step toward realization of his godhood; with faith
as his shield, the sword of the Spirit in his hand and the
spurs of resolution on his feet, he presses on to his fulfll-
ment as a son of God. This is the way to become reborn,
the opportunity our human birth has given us. And it is
not wise ever to underestimate the strength of our en-
emy: the prejudices, weaknesses and fearfulness of the
human self. We will not suffer such dismay if we know we
have them to deal with. But do not give these emotions
power over you by dwelling on them in morbid discour-
agement. This is where you are doctor as well as patient,
and awareness of the Love of the indwelling Christ is the
medicine, it is the antidote, it is the healing of the Spirit;
abide in it, for of yourself you can do nothing and in him
all things are possible.

In the human experience are warring natures, hot fer-
mentations, old doubts and cynicisms, the soul sickness-

es from which you can be freed if you will set your heart
upon him. His healing balsam is Love, it is given you to
compound, it cannot be thrust upon you.

May the Lord of all, the very real and present Savior, the
very quick, the very vital, breathe his health in you and
fll you with divine breath; may he hold your mind in still-
ness, quicken your thoughts, speak with your tongue and
listen with your ear; may he give you the impulse of the
moment that you may hold it, illumined.

One has said, “This is no voyage for a little boat, this
which my venturesome prow goes cleaving, nor for a
pilot who would spare himself.”
And yet today when the
earth is more greatly troubled than ever before, whole
communities of people turn their faces away from their
responsibility to a world in peril. In their daily lives,
where vigilance should begin, they cling to habits of com-
fort and self-indulgence, eyes dull, ears stopped, inertia
and indifference like chains upon their feet. At no time is
this voyage for a pilot who would spare himself, for his
soul’s sake, for his beloved’s sake, and for the sake of his

This is a solemn time, for which you have been gently
prepared. Keep in the simple path, keep in the Word and
it will set you free. And by that is meant that you should
be valiant in your insistence upon keeping aware so that
you hear the voice within, that the Word may abide in you
and in the midst of confusion keep your spirit in peace.
This is your role, this is your great service to mankind.
Let “I am the Light of the world within thee!” be your
battle cry.
