Plants as Food & Medicine- 25th May 1992

WHAT makes a vegetable a vegetable? Many vegetables are in service to Man, which is an honor from the point of view of the plant - an accomplishment and a distinction. Secondly, there are those with medicinal properties that will, if not now, prove to be remedial to Man - this too is a service of relation, of great import.

Added to these two categories, we find also those plants that expire and exclaim certain properties (unseen), which enhance and give over great attributes to man by their simple presence, by exclamation of their being. These too are exalted in services offered and given, albeit without recognition from Man today.

These plants as cited are of course the most pronounced examples of properties most perfectly expressed, rather than isolated in character and nature, form and offerings. Many a 'weed' who holds greater powers of regeneration, may too exude such vitalities as are both healthful and exhilarating to the general wider community, who does benefit by such exuberance - the manifestation of rampant offspring.

It is interesting that some plants have been nurtured with by-products from animals, and that this should be encouragement to growth. How is the rose in all of her purity thus affected by this? In the case of predigested grains and grasses, the manure is characteristically different in relation to fodder for the plant, as is compost-manure from a carnivore. Whilst much flesh shall go to ground and disseminate, with plants within the soil cohabiting the earth, it is not a wise or profitable practice to continually combine such manure with a plant.

In faeces of larger animals (horse, pig, and so forth) there are elements of blood and bile, characteristic to that animal and his vital aspects of his particular nature. Although only in traces minuscule and part per billion, it is nonetheless characterizing etheric vapors which indeed permeate such material. Furthermore, there are conjunctions of astral semen, as it were, that shall find its way through to the makeover of that plant 'nourished' thereby.

This, as far as the character and nature of the plant, is something of a disgrace and a deformity, as the plant which is attended in this manner is usually one given importance in the first place (as described above). So in application to Man later on, it is important to realize the marked changes which will ensue from such a practice.

Specifically there is an adjunct, whereby the accommodating plant does incorporate something of a signature or characteristic, which rather in the singular - namely that of its own - has now something of the animal from which the compost was derived. One could picture a garden of hollyhocks with heads of pigs, dogs or men; a sea of corn with like faces so attached. For the plant is impressionable - likened firstly and bound to Man and to animal through service to begin with - and then later, with consumption of said qualities, begins to incorporate distinctions of those kingdoms.

Now it might be said that conversely, this practice could indeed be sufficient as an alternative for some medicinal extracts; i.e. one could grow insulin in plant life rather than look to animal solutions directly. 

But let us go further in example. For a man to urinate upon a tree, for example, he shall particularly be fond of that tree and well believe that part of him is inextricably bound thereafter. The dogs who accordingly 'make their callings', not only leave scent but actually make of the plants and the trees, casting their own images directly into the growth. To a dog, his home territory is surrounded by visible images of himself. It is a corruption of a plant to a degree and is not permanent - but if one had the eyes to see, there should be animals peeping out on many a new shoot and branch.

All kingdoms hold provision for an 'overlapping' into species and design, in order to accommodate specifics pertaining to the conditions of being. However, the chains of production may be inadvertently mixed to a point where in consumption by man (animal/man>>>manure>>>plant>>>man) the correlation mix becomes one disastrous poison to he who ingests the final product.

It is true to say that usually a man does not ingest meat alone, but prefers to always accompany the meat that he eats with grain products (bread) or vegetables, on the same platter. He does this because the nature of the vegetable does in fact assist with the assimilation of the otherwise corruptive flesh - most similar in aspect of his flesh, but dissimilar to the constitution as far as decay. For a man to spend an entire day consuming meat only, should indeed do well to survive the diet!

So the natures of those vegetables do make for a conducive system, not by roughage (fiber) as is presumed, and not by mass (dilution) and not in extract, but rather that the given quality aspects of the plant manage to disseminate the flesh and overcome that which is unconducive to assimilation. For within all meat - particularly the organs, less so the flesh - one will find definite characteristics adhered to that very function.

However, if this process is arrived at during the life and growth of the plant, the accommodating process shall once again be put forth in a way that proves the opposite, once the man has consumed the final product. For the man too shall hold some lively incorporation, rather than the usual assistance of disseminating and resisting those properties that hold actions dissimilar to that of his own system. This may occur also, when a man takes such meat to excess and does not counterbalance the diet with the necessary influences prescribed by side-dish plants.

For we find that in the evolution of animal formation, the structure and the forces employed are with different activities and different characteristics to those of the plant. In point of fact, the physical world contrasts many, many, unnoted differences within manifestation, making all kingdoms very distinct - even in physical terms, in composition, in patterns of regeneration and growth, in actual substance.

The hypothesis which stipulates that physical matter is composed of shared qualities, is in part correct and in part mistaken. Because the nature of the qualities - be them of mineral element or quasi-organism - differs exceedingly, level upon level, depending upon whom and what, these composites adhere to. Also, that they are in turn somewhat personalized, individualized, and re-gravitate time and time again; rather than are shared by all kingdoms across the board. The enigma of the molecular phases does not provide for this in present-day science and yet how could it not be so?

Life is shared to a degree, but characteristically is marked, and is not so expendable as is thought. The only substance to rise above this particular usage for matter is water; who characteristically is as one. Water, the body of water, as vast as she is in all representations and usage, is as one. It is the water which, through said properties, may make provision for differing components to gather harmoniously, albeit, individually marked.

Fire, although physically viewed, is not of physical matter, and is also as one: one entity with a multitude of split representations at any given time, upon the Globe. But again, there are qualities of fire and degrees of it imparted, mingled with atmospheric conditions, which mark and change the nature of that manifestation.

The beings who live in the sunlight are many and are most different. The sunlight is not as one, and does emanate from several sources, remarkably. Even the Sun does wax and wane, and that which is 'behind' or within the Sun, actually changes in influence, in the characteristics of influence - albeit in differing time periods with vast extensions. But in slight episodes also, qualities (gods) peep in, and emanate down, through this the sunlight. There are many differing characteristics raying through, and are thus absorbed by the Globe and its inhabitants. A prism may isolate some of these characteristics, as too the light deflected in the sunrise.

These in turn are incorporated within the plant, who by the holy virtue of the water, holds too those forces of the Sun so inspired. Plants hold a luminosity of such a ratio that can actually be activated into phosphorescence if expired. The expiration of such rays can and does occur through water evaporation, and within visible limits can be achieved when captured in water (vacuum sealed) and provoked into submission thereby.

The organism of the physical constitution makes these extractions daily, along with also the accompanying characteristics and influences of that plant/vegetable assimilated. This is particularly why dried foods are as death to the constitution. Mineral elements may preside, as well as those components which visibly represent the former material, but the organism may work overtime without relief, in order to pass the superfluous matter and expel.

Liquid extracts are therefore exceedingly potent as nourishment and tonic.

Divine Supplication & Zeal- 24th May 1992

THE Phantom of the Opera as a classical tale of the hideous and masked, and beauty, expressed to many an inward picture description of Man and his struggle to capture the exalted radiance of soul, so desperately sought for. This speaks readily to all men, who, driven to hide in secluded chamber and shuffle the corridors behind the stage (of worldly activity) long for sweet beauty and the expression thereof.

Such images are worthy of popularization, and this of course found its example amongst the artistry of which it was about. Each could not help but be touched by the simple story of this impassioned and pitiable soul who was tortured thus.

One can never undervalue the complex problems of each and every upset which is attached to a man. However, although reasonable in isolation, such upsets are moderate when contrasted to the simpler, and yet less recognizable defects which restrict a man from the outset.

If one is to begin from the premise that all men quite naturally are good, pure and wholesome in being, then it is to the reasons of distraction from this that we must look to find cause for the overall upsets today- the deformity rather than the mask. Yet we do not seek to lay blame or be downcast about indignities. For what is done is done, and may not be remedied by such recourse. 

When one becomes purged of that which is of their own sin, quite frequently it is then that the sins of the world overshadow, 'press in' about the man. Saints who have withstood many personal demons and soul conflicts, become both purified by this lightning-quick revivification, only to come into a world which protests the angelic ways and associations, demanding and clashing.

The specters of the lower world, who cleave to those dreadful tragedies of Earth, moan and groan with grim and doleful whine. No wonder! Such ghosts moan and make unhappy remonstrations because they are very sorry and the epitome of sadness itself. That which is bound to evil realizes little joy, if any.

So it is not just the way of the ordinary man to feel seduced or beset by the woes and forebodings of upsets within the world. One may never really be so disconnected as to formally detach themselves any longer than momentarily. There is no permanent refuge until all men have been gathered up and accounted for; for it is by the invitation of men that upset walks the globe at home.

By knowing this one may begin to find courage, to indeed face the worldly turmoil and refuse to be intimidated by such. It is in no way meant to be off-putting or to such distraction, that one feels impotent as regards the improvement of themselves or the larger world. Rather, one may face the distinct evils and not so distinct evils, and say, "You prove to me, the necessity for active remedy!" From this viewpoint, be firm about the matter constantly.

To many, it does not appeal to their sense of fairness that evil should be part of the world, if it is indeed to be annihilated in some future happier condition. Furthermore, it does not seem to be worth the upset that is caused nor the risk entailed of men falling yet further. Because of the 'unreasonableness' of these conditions preset, many men are easily stifled with desperation and generally discontent. Whilst it may be good in simple measure to be discontent enough to make action upon those troubles with which we meet, it is not worthy to be overcome with a sadness which suggests hopelessness or disgrace.

How then can one arrive at a happy fortitude which embraces the current conditions? For to be wakeful may indeed be painful! This needs be addressed and worked upon, and checked.

Here is a helpful thought:-
There is a law which provides - especially for men - that certain influences need have need in order to be drawn down and received within. 

Question: What is the need of Hope streaming into a world which actually hopes for nothing? Contrary as it may seem, that which is Hope can make entrance into the world of men because of the need which calls it forth! Without any form of poverty there should be no charity. Without the contests of many evils so-called, there should be no valor!

It is as a vacuum. When the waters lay still about the world and men still slumbered within this vapory thought, they knew not what they were, even though as perfect expression they were… and still are. The higher purpose of those powers of conflict and even degradation, was not only the refinement of a self-conscious glorified being, but the enablement of those beings to actively draw to themselves divine supplications, which did originally stimulate their being/beings.

One might ask, "But what use has the garden, for yet another flower?" Yet the way of Creation is the enhancement always of such additions with equal purpose. Either there is no evolution or all must be perpetuated thus and moved towards enhancement. The troughs are necessary to the wave-tops, granted, but nonetheless, the ceaseless swelling of an ever expanding incorporation of life promoted each fullest aspect, driven by Cosmic motivation, to aspire, conspire and assimilate.

Such progressiveness is anything but tedious!

This is why one may come to the aspect that all of life's presentations bring countless opportunities. Having said that, one may be respectful to even the demons who have blaze-trailed the path through to men, for that which is indeed great interjection for both.

However, one may never abide evil as it would suggest itself to be, but rather for what it is. Many promises are made to man which are misleading. One cannot give credence to evils, in as much to say that they are what they are, for the purpose so stated. Evil is obliging unto itself and demands submission. It does not know of its greater purpose or of its own transformation pertaining to redemption. 

Thus it is that the individualities of men, to whom we look to become exalted in each and every being, must of necessity come to resist all awesome evils. If they are to become: 'lords of their own future', then in proper accordance with the nutrients of Divinity, they are not to be persuaded to promulgate the very evils so crucial to this their nurturing.

Therefore if I am to withstand the evils so presented in the world, I am to hold fast to those rays which do enter through dark vortex, and try to direct such supplication as I would have for myself. There is not a creature upon the Earth who is not in need of kindness, of pity, of understanding, of consideration, of forgiving, of loving, of nurture, of protection. Of strength to battle, strength to stand - these and more, I may concentrate upon, and the rays will be forthcoming. Supplication to the spirit need not only be afforded after death. Each and every man may help govern the drawing in of these Heavenly forces, which of themselves will expel all upset.

Usually when one comes to learn a task or acquire a talent, one learns by exploring that which is not advisable to do, afore becoming competent. One does not begin as a master. One shall not become as master by impatience. And it helps to know ahead of time of that which one is trying for. Simple as it sounds, it is true. Men are too used to despising their work, that struggle is dimly viewed. They are exasperated before beginning. They view the road ahead and doubt. To where has the zeal gone in learning?

Precisely what is missing from those who come upon ideals and yet cannot find the necessary strength to follow through to them?: It is zeal - and so the question is an important one.

To the fanciful would-be dictator, it is attractive that men be deprived of their zeal, for a lusterless society makes for a complacent people. Devils require submission, and would bleed the zeal for betterment from a man, by default and defeat. The empowerment of zeal is one of the most forceful elements to motivation in both Heaven and Man. Remember also, that Creation herself is not half-hearted, that the conspiring of all life is activated with zeal.

(Great word, is it not? - if you get a feel for it!)


It can be very uplifting, just concentrating upon the stuff!

Zeal is activated love. It requires some point to which it must be directed into, and when called forth it empowers and endows much further realization of that activity. Therefore if men are not in the habit of experiencing this definitive power and putting it to great use in their aspects, they shall be deprived of ready usage - truly a double bind. One has to have some measure of it to begin to fully come to realize its enhancements. Unlike many of the lower passions it is not by nature, self-fulfilling - it may not be motivated in that way. But akin to the higher passions, it is an accelerator alike to no other!

How often it has been said that men hold such depressed and sorry expectations of what their day shall bring. To direct oneself into a truly profitable activity, one which is really loved for what it is, it is important to the individual that he may labor with zeal; to know of some intensity, the satisfaction and happiness accrued with fruitful labor. We should not deny of ourselves those occupations for which we are suited, that we love to work at best, not to examine them as mere hobbies or pastimes, but connections to the Earth which uplift our spirit, because our relationship to the Earth is so enhanced. If the desire of life is withdrawn from beaten souls they shall begin to disincarnate from the moment of birth. Men begin to retreat into those avenues which negate the consciousness, rather than enter into wonderful specifics with happy ties and lustrous ingenuity.

All men need encouragement. They are not content to be unhappy, but know not where to find enrichment because all too often the values of their fellow men are so degraded as to suggest that enrichment is unobtainable. Without an hour a week so given, the aspect of zeal quickly dies within a man, unless re-ignited by enterprise upon which he may forecast for himself.

The supplication to men shall come, that by activated love through application so enhanced by zeal (the substance itself), men shall equate all upset and renegotiate all splendors afforded them.

Beauty & Conceit- 22nd May 1992

WHAT is that thing which establishes the all important difference?:
  • between fetish and devotion;
  • between obstinacy and compliance to the Law;
  • between humility and downheartedness;
  • between forthrightness and self-determination;
  • between conviction and dogmatism;
  • between consistency and 'staidness';
  • betwixt indignation and anger;
  • separating alarm from fear with due consideration;
  • level, rational thinking from mechanical intercourse;
  • true compassion from self-indulgence;
  • ego-identity from egotism and self-love
What are the gradients which distinguish one from the other?
It is the individual who determines thus. How quickly we view the soul of another and in judgment perceive the first within ourselves and the second within the other. Conceit is the divider to the extreme - always first and last. Conceit and the amount thereof, shall make for the distinguishing marks upon attitude of mind, soul and subsequent action.

Oh precious man! - To whom much glory is afforded. The truth is ever the accelerator and the provision for this our humble plight! How does one drive out such conceit, and with constancy and vigilant enterprise, deny his return and his whisperings?

We need not be uncertain in order to be curious or open-minded, and yet the paradox of separating knowledge and doubt from each other shall prove that further knowledge does illumine one; whereas doubts shall only bring chaos. Certain chaos may be afforded at intervals which in time bring new order, bring new offerings. 

Do we doubt with validity or do we doubt because we fear to be wrong? Do we doubt because we do doubt but ourselves? Such considerations require some stable premise from which to work from.

If we can but separate self-interest from that which we set out to develop - i.e. for the sake of the good and the glorious - then we shall mark such divisions with according intent.

It is instinctive to man to be without conceit, yet the older one gets the more pivotal, the more remedial, the question becomes. One may deny the self by the adoption of conceit. The most unsure, unconfident man, may be enveloped quite grossly in Conceit's hesitations, because all is taken to self without release: release into the world, release into simply being, and release into the love of God. 

Just as surely as true self-denial is the withholding of those Heavenly attributes, so also is conceit the carrier and vehicle for the intimidation of soul. As much as there are diseases of body and subsequent disturbances, there are too, maladies of spirit. 

Interestingly enough, for those who are so taken with fixations about 'galactic wars and battles', it is usually because of inner tensions and conflicts that they associate with such concepts and queerly find them pleasing to consider. If there is something to be certain about, it is the importance of being certain that the prospects of Beauty, of Grace and of Divine love shall find expression, no matter how long the winter or heavy the snowfall! That Heaven herself shall and does prevail. That Creation has provided for decay and decease by Her terms and none other; for such elements would not be if it were not by Her design. And that Creation outlives all destruction because of this. 

So by this broader approach, which may not be deemed optimism but rather happy fact, we may establish a point of view which is harmoniously strong; and whilst strengthens the self, is not of the self. 

On the other hand, we may find that opponents are many who devise considerations which are negligent or remiss, in thus accepting the Holy Cosmos. For there is strife - as has been for a very long episode - strife which is born again from this conceit which believes that the outer and inner spheres may be reflected within the personal arena. However, all that which is attributable in Man is to be found in actuality, tangibly without. That which is elemental to the good and the glorious is manifested not only in realms of spiritual conjecture. Lo! Think only of those images produced today purporting trillions of galaxies, profoundly beautiful even to the uninspired! Beauty is a fact: undeniable, unpronounceable.

Here we may stop to consider what beauty exactly may be; or more properly the nature of Beauty in all of her manifestations. One will feel accordingly that beauty is an example of that which appeals to us as being right: as it should be, an inspiring design, an example of perfection. The hillocks may be ill-defined and the curves of the sea change with rapidity, but overall that natural world and those expressions of Creation that hold beauty within which we marvel at - all feel correct and are pleasing because they feel right.

If something is out of place on a picture or a face, then we immediately become disconcerted, and we may not feel inspired to beauty. Rather and interestingly, beauty is intrinsic to Creation, and this is known by us. But deviations and mixes which are inharmonious denote a sinister deformation of what was once or should be, beautiful.

These are high and lofty concepts and are not to be confused with mere insults or judgments as to the lot of many and their current habitat. But most assuredly, one cannot gauge the spiritual implications and prospects of men simply by the world today and the images cast within. However, if we can arrive at this simple truth, we shall find that many are out of touch with the concept of beauty actually being hand in hand with the true and glorious order of being- to know beauty and come to recognize it. 

We find that when a soul is exalted by wondrous inspirations - whether they be colored by: compassion, by striving, by compunction, by illumination and so forth - there is an ineffable beauty so known, that infills he who does receive. So often we recoil from that which is unsightly in the world and know not of certain hideous sins that we support unseen, but in scowl, in attitude, go with us.

Here we find that Conceit has the remarkable ability to reassure us that ugliness is in fact, acceptable. For Conceit is verily the half-brother to Beauty, and steps in afore Beauty may be realized. One does inhibit the other in both force and in manifestation. For Conceit is content and relatively inactive in inspiration. Beauty - essential to Creation - is constantly active, motivating and producing. 

Originally the ascetics meant well by full believing that Beauty could not be made manifest by man, as well as in God or secondly within Creation. So the world was to be discarded and the life a simple one. Then concurrently, those who were empowered to be artists or afford the artists, lived too for a beauty and strove to embellish the world or their homes with creations of such. 

Today the emphasis is on essentialism, whereby the common thought discards a striving towards beauty and replaces much consideration to functionalism first. This is making people ill. It really makes a difference. Not even that men must dwell amongst unsightly creations of uninspired men, but that rarely do men strive for beauty itself. The children are affected thereby, as are the resounding thoughts of men. They are discontent, they are suicidal to the extreme - because, they know that Beauty is not being entertained and so drawn into the earthly sphere. They long for her.

Most people will find agreement on true beauty. And here to interject - it is important to say, that were one to set about creating a public venue, do not (not even just for the sake of good taste) make it gimmicky and try to attract folk so. People need beauty, even outstanding beauty. How wondrous it should be, if a group of individuals set about - as has been in the past - creating a public place of truly remarkable beauty. Mr. Disney definitely got it all wrong, and yet you must realize, people still go there in search of such inspiration and wonderment and come away sorely disappointed- quite deformed characteristics, etc. On the other hand, the original efforts did do very well by nature and characteristic in some of the effects.

Particular countries today do radiate an illumined sense of the richness of color, of curve, of creation. These are of the old-world, rather than of newer trends. 

The perception of true beauty answers all conceit. This we may marvel at and give praise accordingly to a marvelous design with a wondrous intent. Let us not doubt, nor dismay, nor self-indulge, but come to know that the larger scheme is pleasing, infilling, true and correct . . . and most beautiful.

Testing Medicines- 12th May 1992

Reference: AIDS

• First point, is that all substances may become poisonous to man.

• Second point: as with the example shown with silver, there are periods during the day, month and the year, where toxicity will rise and fall - the complete relationship to man will alter. Differing results will be shown depending upon ingestion times, and times of overall experiments. A substance can swing from a food to a poison in twelve hour periods.

• Third point: is that upon which the many medicines hitherto provided were based or formed upon bacterially. Namely, if bacteria has been cultured or administered through use of wheat (deformed then in that sense), it may be that wheat products later on become poisonous.

To a degree, a weakened immune response at the time of ingestion may also cause later vulnerability, but a severe case such as this is not the point - the actual point being that the substances whereby antibiotic bacteria are harvested, mutate the substance and the man's relationship to the substance, and the tolerance is so lowered, that at the peak times of toxicity (less resistance also) the man shall be incapable of assimilating or passing the now foreign format of that which was formerly known to him.

Organic products that decompose are as poison; it is the growth of a healthy etheric life-pattern which sustains and supports desirous influences within a man. However, life which follows after decomposition is a separate life; one which feeds off decomposition, and thus encourages the breakdown of the lively elements which it sets itself upon.

Before a medicine is administered the trials should be made at all times of the day to measure response; and for that matter, all times of the year. Only suitable times should be cleaved to - if it is apparent that this is so. So many tests are incomplete because this consideration is not taken into account.

Anxiety & Doom- 6th May 1992

ANXIETY is paralleled by muscular cramp. In seizure we are temporarily immobilized and resist ourselves- be it the clamp and tackle of a muscular reflex, or the locking of thoughts which are equally as difficult to 'loosen' and ease up. The pressure and consequent pain is derivative of that action - one thought acting against another- and the individual suffers turmoil because of this delay in activity.

As with a frozen and unobliging member, one must necessarily act quickly to counteract that particular which is causing the resistance. A healthy flow of mind activity is not so easily accomplished when the mind itself is detailed with exaggerated proportions of upset and seizure. Anxiety is pitched to frenzy and can result in total collapse, before one is released from the drives which have maintained such a seizure.

An individual may be drawn to alarm, when there are no impending causes apparent. This alarm is notified and acted upon - where the breath and the pulse are quickened, the heat is forced in, the individual feels 'stifled' and the concentration is awash. How then to bring about stability upon the rocky seas?

One must learn to bring together some of the recollections of happier times. Whatever the propulsion into anxiety is, it is usually because one believes that control over the situation is to the greater part, lost or forfeited. This feeling of loss of control shall spiral, one upon another, until what was an echo of a truth becomes an enormous reality of doom. Anxiety is precisely the experience of doom itself. And Doom is a formidable vision to experience. Of course, although there may be certain reality in Doom and his character, he himself may not withstand change, change which defies him, again and again.

There have been countless past experiences which all men do share whereupon they have encountered this fiendish apparition, and because of plans tried or ways so entered into, it has resulted poorly - the exit was quick, the shock so great, and so forth. And he does present himself time and time again, even though he shall never have the final word. It is understandable that an individual should feel pursued in the extreme, for encounters in the future will almost assuredly be made.

To the sensitive soul, one can actually receive images of Doom from others who are so impressed, and herein is one anxiety which strikes when confronting other people and becoming irked thereby.

Basically it is because we are acquainted with deep memories of those situations of horror or shock, which preceded our encounter with Doom, that we may become once again sensitive to the prospect of his return. All of those who suffer from anxiety know this dreaded feeling and imagery so conjured thereby.

In actual truth however, we have endured many, many trials and encounters, all of which whose gates we are through and quite safe. It is strange to say, but there is a paradox in meeting with the presence of Doom, for it is almost as if he were but a messenger of hope also. Because by the time that he is truly envisioned, conditions will change in a way that the individual shall be released by that which has overwhelmed them.

It is the apprehension and the alarm of the prospect of meeting with Doom which alerts the individual to the possibility of great change. The prospect of such enormous change upsets the one who envisions and panics and resists in mental deadlock the situation afore them.

So one can see that it maybe remarkably complicated, and yet at the same time nothing may actually issue forth from such alarm. Yet when one considers Doom, and the actuality of former recollections, it is no wonder that some are distressed, as the accumulated experiences of such are acutely experienced in awesome proportions.

However, we must be stern in our knowledge and our considerations of circumstance. It is wise to come to know that we are held safely, snugly in the bosom of circumstance. We shall not fall into a bottomless pit which is endless. Even though we bump and slide there is always rest and repose and exit therefrom.

This is why the happier recollections, the treasures that we know of, can be so useful and of first importance. That we may counter those impressions of upset with those which were grander and more wondrous, which came after.

It is a law common to all that there is restitution always afforded; especially in the sense of one who has suffered - great joys to them are always later the reward. To know this is important- to truly look for happier days. To know that whatever trials and pains may eventuate, there shall be recompense; for each soul is so treasured. The anguish of a violent death, the imprint of grief, of loss and of pain - these are worked upon within the Heavenly spheres to ensure that the soul is renewed and unscathed. 

To the sufferer of anxiety, there is as only one half of the representation becoming known to them. It is as though they are at the threshold with forewarning of Doom and believing that all is quite lost. One must cross that threshold bravely, with whatever one fears, apparent or devised, and come to know that on the other side lies all that is lost and more - quite real and in terms of truth, more tangible than ever before.

We fail to realize this as we walk the world. We necessarily hold much precious to us and shall not submit to loss or change, for such reluctance is an ingredient to existence. But there is surely an existence, which for us is more permanent and shall withstand far beyond the worldly sphere, as it represents only some of that which lies beyond.

To come to agreement within oneself of the parallel of worldly life and that existence which reaches out into forever, is somewhat irreconcilable. However if we can greet Doom himself with the optimism of greater vision and know that even his calling brings promise beyond the threshold of change, then we shall be relieved of much burdensome anxiety which does otherwise grip at the neck of the alarmed.
