6if we abide in these, they will abound in us, and we shall be one in heart,—one in motive, purpose, pursuit. Abid- ing in Love, not one of you can be separated from me; and
9the sweet sense of journeying on together, doing unto others as ye would they should do unto you, conquers all opposition, surmounts all obstacles, and secures success.
12If you falter, or fail to fulfil this Golden Rule, though you should build to the heavens, you would build on sand.
Is it a cross to give one week's time and expense to the
15jubilee of Spirit? Then take this cross, and the crown with it. Sending forth currents of Truth, God's methods and means of healing, and so spreading the gospel of
18Love, is in itself an eternity of joy that outweighs an hour. Add one more noble offering to the unity of good, and so cement the bonds of Love.

The eternal and infinite, already brought to your
9earnest consideration, so grow upon my vision that I cannot feel justified in turning aside for one hour from contemplation of them and of the faith unfeigned.
12When the verities of being seem to you as to me, — as they must some time, — you will understand the neces- sity for my seclusion, and its fulfilment of divine order.
15"Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye sepa- rate, saith the Lord."
All our thoughts should be given to the absolute
