Noble Drew Ali
Noble Drew Ali told the Moorish Americans, “To you, I am an Angel of Allah
sent to bring you the everlasting Gospel of Allah.” Indeed, the Angel was
born amongst the very nation He was sent to redeem. Noble Drew Ali was
full ordained by The Great God to be their Prophet. The status of 'Prophet'
is the highest station most religious scholars can understand. Especially
when their recorded history shows divinity has appeared into human form
which men may comprehend. But Noble Drew Ali was five times greater
than the last Prophets before him; he is the last Avatar sent to warn the
nations of the earth. It is only natural, yet a weakness found among human
failings for the very nation Drew Ali was born unto would be the last to
recognize the saving powers this Angel had brought to fallen humanity
Some may say, “He doesn’t look like any angel I have seen.” Most western
psychics would not know an Angel if they were to kiss them in the mouth.
However, if someone make this statement it is probably because they
speak more from what they do not know then what they know e.g. all
Biblical Angels were Messengers of God, Sun-kissed People in human
forms and rich in melanin. They were not little pale skin European infants
with bird-wings on their backs. Truth is, Europe has never produced
Prophets or Angels. Drew Ali is an Angel.
Pictured above (upper right) is The Illustrious Noble Drew Ali, Holding the
Flags of Morocco and United States while Registering The Moorish
Americans, as a New Nation and Sovereign power, at the 1928 Pan
American Conference For Indigenous Nations. Also make careful notice of
the above picture at the upper left: Is a reflection of Moorish Secretary
Juanita Richardson Bey at the Home Office with her Prophet, Noble Drew
Ali. Equally important is the national 'hand writtings on the wall.' Study the
flags on the wall of Drew Ali office. The above black and white photos are a
few of many displaying Noble Drew Ali's vexillology of the flags of Morocco
and Corporate UNITED STATES. Whenever he displayed either of these
flags they were always 'Upside Downward' and / or 'backward.' Pictured at
the right; notice Drew Ali's upright posture is that of an Ancient Kemetian
Adept Master. Although he has the flags of two governments in his hands,
He has his legs crossed left over right. This denotes both Governments are
now recognized as being in dire adversity by those who know law. The
importance of this science was Drew Ali's warning to the Moorish
Americans showing neither government had the will nor strength to free
them or save themselves. Still, to this day, many half-awake Moorish hoist
the flags of Morocco and Corporate USA declaring these flags represent
the free national name "Moorish American." Meanwhile the flag of Morocco
is not Moorish but Moroccan. And the flag of the United States is not
American but of America. This is to say, the free national name "Moorish
American" have never been represented or supported by the Governments
of Africa which sold them into slavery or the European Governments that
enslaved them. It appears someone did not follow Prophet Noble Drew
Ali ...oh well, back to Cuba...
The international affair was hosted by Cuba in its City of Havana. Bro.
Charles Kirkman-Bey, Master Polyglot (speaking 92 languages), was the
Chief Interpreter for The Holy Prophet and His national cabinet. Also in
attendance was several Tribal Chiefs of Continental Nations and the United
States were represented by Secretary of State Hughes who was in awe of
the well-established Constitution of the Moorish American Delegates. There
were Free National Delegates from Central and South Americas and other
Islands. During the Conference Noble Drew Ali was given The Mandate for
the Land, which the United States had been occupying on an expired
Mandate since 1871. After this Pan American Conference of Human
Nations the United States refusal to yield hallowed soil would result in a
severe warning by The Holy Prophet: "Until my Moors are free in their own
home the worst is yet to come. The United States owe the Moors a great
debt, they must pay in compound interest. The United States have one
more war to win". The next year Drew Ali left the body saying, "I can better
fight the rest of this battle on the soul plane". Within twelve years of this
warning the Stock Market had Crashed, Illuminati's Federal Reserve Bank
had taken over the sovereign powers of the now 'Corporate United States
of America' and an economical drought called "The Great Depression" was
felt by every Citizen except the elite few. As if it was not enough to soften
her harden heart, the US Corporation would be functioning under perpetual
This is how "He began to uplift the Moorish Americans by teaching them to be themselves. Drew Ali paved the way which would demonstrate the inevitability of freedom for the Moorish Americans. Still. Still. "This is a new era of time now and all men now must proclaim their free national name to be recognized by the government and the nations of the earth. of Moorish Americans. according to their one true free national name." This marks the first time the ex-slaves' proper status has been truely represented since the abolishment of U. While the United States has never been without her staple of African Slaves. thus reattaching them to the human family of nations." This event marked the first and last time the so-called Negro was duly recognized as being a new nation. Colored Folks and Blacks into perpetual mental slavery. But they must finish freeing themselves in order to assure the immutableness which rest in true freedom. The Prophet showed the Mandate to many Officials of the Adept Chamber of The MST of A that He founded in 1920. now. at the end of time and the fulfilling of the prophecies. not as Members of his Moorish Science Temple Organization but by their one free National Name of "Moorish Americans. Aren't these the same pagans who's GNP has been The African Slave Trade for centuries before the advent of Prophet Mohammed? Albeit the truth. the Manumission of the Moorish is infinitely inevitable. Slavery. Needfultosay." With this international proclamation of Independence. into one clean and pure nation of people. For any man to perform the divine miracle of breaking the Old Masonic Roman Seal. This reflection was taken in Havana Cuba. with the gift of a "Panama" on the head of Drew Ali which was presented to him by the Cuban Government. S.Maritime Law that went into effect in 1933 and has not won another War since World War II. Allah . Ali is a Holy Prophet ordained by the great God. The above picture was taken during the first National Conference Representation of the Ex-Slaves. there are those who denounce the Prophethood of Noble Drew Ali. This great national representation occurred about one year before He left His body. this unholy onslaught is lead by those who call themselves 'Sunni' or 'Shiite' Muslims under the Post-Mohammed Arab-version of Islam. Even though His duties and saving Powers of salvation are clearly in the line genealogy of all Major and Minor Prophets sent before him. by the year 2007. etc. This event is a reflection of one of the many miracles illustrated by Prophet Noble Drew Ali during his brief 16-year Ministry. the Moors had not freed themselves from the wrath of feigned Citizenry held in the iron-hand of the oppressive USA's 14th and 15th Amendment. that has declared all Negroes. Noble Drew Ali declared. has proved beyond all reasonable doubts. Pleeese.
"In the name of Allah"? Isn’t that like asking the criminal to describe the crime? Mohammed's being the 'Seal of the prophets' does not conflict with "Noble Drew Ali is the last Prophet in these days. Just because a former slave learns to speak Arabic. Allah. No. Blacks or Colored Folks. who other from among them has brought the truth to free the Moorish??? Who has fulfilled the divine duties of a Prophet except the Great Prophet of Ali in America??? . Yehoshua for the Israelites and Mohammed for the Arabians (PBUT). In all the world..did raise a Holy Prophet from amongst those infidels of Havilah. not any more than one can make a 1st Class Citizen from Negroes. according to His Word. Drew Ali has done the same for these Sinners as Confucious for the Chinese. does not interpret into their freedom. but it did little good to deter the Arabian lust for African Slaves (see: Who Are The Siddis Of India?).. of all the 'People of the Book'. surely Allah knows what man knows not. has kept his covenant to always raise one from amongst those who have gone astray. To this day they will not admit that man’s enslavement of man is merely the will of man and not The Will Of The Great Universal God. As for those who think like Arabia ." The Great God. the language of his Slave Traders. Allah! What does anyone really expect a Muslim to say when it comes to the same God. ordaining another Holy Prophet to the Negro heathens they sold to the west? Didn’t the Arabs know the true origin of the West African nationals before they stole and sold them into European slavery? Why ask a Muslim for the worthiness of those they enslaved.

"Force is the will of Allah and is omnipotent. and this is what man thinks. when he and Allah are one. 29.

This car of Krishna is an empty thing. just serve your near of kin. he does a wrong to Allah. No blessings can attend the one who takes the food from hungry mouths to be destroyed by fire. or meat. and covet not what is not yours. 18. "The Holy Breath cannot be seen with mortal eyes. That which you burn on any shrine you throw away. nor can men see the spirits of the Holy One. which will return to you with blessedness. And then the people asked: "To whom shall we bring gifts? Where shall we offer sacrifice?" 17. And you must bear in mind that when man harms in thought or word or deed another man. will light your countenance with joy. of lamb. a body with no soul. the foe who seeks to do you harm. .

The vile in heart who want to cover up their guilt with holy smoke of piety are ever loathing drunkard. we gathered up and burned the stalks with broken blades. 24. who know that you are pure in heart and life. but not a kernel could he find. The pure in heart do not accuse. And Jesus said: "If Allah saves only those who have no broken blades. 16. the accusers held their peace. The man who covets is a thief. Suppose you men who scorn the courtesans. and when he looked he saw that blades of many stalks of wheat were bent and broken down. 18. and not a stalk was left to carry to the barn. The man who spends his time in pulling other people's weeds can have no time to pull his own. And Jesus spoke a parable. these drunkards and these thieves. 17. for honor and for fame. Deceit you practice every day. you look at charming forms.' 28. just for your selfish selves. and wish for gold. You who are none of these speak out. thistles and burs. And Jesus said: "The proof this day is all against those who have accused. And the accusers hung their heads in shame. and nothing will remain but darnel. who have been perfected in His sight. And then he called the harvesters and said to them: 'Where is my grain?' 30. The sin lies in the wish. And when he sent his reapers forth he said 'We will not save the stalks of wheat that have the broken blades." 20. He said: "Behold. 22. deceit and many forms of secret sin. that you are better far than they. They answered him and said: 'We did according to your word. 27. and she who lusts is courtesan. This loathing and this scorn is mockery. 26. a farmer had great fields of ripened grain. the loud professor would be found to revel in his lust. not in the act. And after many days he went to measure up his grain. stand forth that men may know just who you are. You covet other people's wealth.15. Go forth and cut and burn the stalks with broken blades. thief and courtesans. who will be saved?" 32. and deep within your hearts you lust for them. 29." 25. in the desire.
And Jesus said to them. Jehovah is His Hebrew name. yet He is more than one. in Egypt he is Thoth. 7. the One. and every nation sees a part of Allah. Man names the part of Allah he sees. By the sweet breath of Allah all life is bound in one. 14. All people worship Allah. and many high born Hindu priests and scribes were there.

The bird sings out its song for men. and men vibrate in unison to help it sing. and so He does not seem the same to every one. nor cause a thing that Allah has made to suffer pain.

And Jesus said: "The Allah I speak about is everywhere. but all the people see Him not alike. his God unfolds. and Zeus is His name in Greece. 15. tell who is this Allah you speak about. with much delight "I speak to you concerning life--the brotherhood of life. but everywhere He is . 8. and so.

But Jesus tarried not. or beast. or bird. the Avesta and the wisdom of Gautama. and mind is often manifest in fleshy form. he needs no middle man. and then a protoplast. just for yourself. So mind may manifest as worm. and others said: "He is obsessed. He goes straight up to Him and says. but strove among themselves. Now. for he has been a living thing on every plane of life. The protoplast evolved. a seeker after truth. the people were amazed. 22. "Man is the marvel of the universe. When Jesus had thus said He stood aside. 23." 28. 7. and all is well. Time was when man was not. Chapter XI Jesus and Barata--Together They Read the Sacred Books. Some said: "He is inspired by Holy Brahm" and others said: "He is insane". and then at last it reached the form of man. and sacrifice of blood Allah does not want.

Man may believe what others say. what any man has said. when you were ape. or bird.

And Jesus said: "Barata Arabo. 8. in their boundless power. or was. 18. 20. are never seen by eyes of man in flesh. or bird. 16. Arabo. And with the eyes of soul all creatures see these ether planes. then. you do not know. The time will come when everything of life will be evolved unto the state of perfect man.

And now man. and thus this coarser manifest. And so it was with every living thing until the will became a sluggish will. and earth. and all the creatures of these planes must get their food from atmosphere. 38. And in their native planes all creatures are supplied with nourishment from the ethers of their planes. Vidyapati. 32. And so an earth is never plant. Now. The angels and the cherubim fell not. and here is where the carnal law of evolution had its rise.

We toil to live. men should be happiest when they toil. and. "Toil should not make a person sad. 44. 3. and we must live so many lives before we can reach that place!" 8. and bless the day when we can cease our toil and lay down and rest in Buddha's city of the dead. and now a master sage stands here in the temple Kapavistu.

Not one of all the group could think of anything but toil. and it is not a place of metes and bounds. but then it is so far away. And Jesus spoke to one and said: "Why are you all so sad? Have you no happiness in life?" 4. and he said: 6. "You priests of Kapavistu. It was a holy day. The Hebrew prophet is the rising star of wisdom. hear me speak. He never made a hell.

And then the people said: "Make known to us the way that we may find the wealth that lies within the heart. he said: "A certain man possessed a field. you need no longer till the soil for naught. know you not that just below the surface of your barren field rich treasures lie concealed? 17. the toilers saw another side of life. and day by day you tread upon a mine of gold and precious stones. in passing on his way.

The guide then led the way and in the fountain Jesus bathed. and all the city came to hear him speak. the son of Zacharias and Elizabeth. but they could find him not. 11.
They toil not. they said no more. Hear! hear! You people of Jerusalem! Reform: turn from your evil ways or Allah will turn from you. your hearts are far away. and you regard them not. 25.

Your rulers are adulterers. 31. their dens are in the sacred places set apart for prayer.
But Jesus said: "Away from me all tempting thoughts. And he went forth into the wilderness to be alone with Allah. command these stones to turn to bread. I spurn this carnal self with all its vain ambition and its pride." 7. My words and deeds in all the walks of life shall be the proof of my Messiahship. 2. And Jesus said: "I may not tempt the Lord. For forty days did Jesus wrestle with His carnal self. He said: "My lower self is strong." 13. the Logos had been introduced to men as love made manifest. And then the tempter said: "Look forth upon the world. And with Himself He talked. Have I the strength to overcome and give my life a willing sacrifice for men? 5. CHAPTER XVI Pilate's Final Effort to Release Jesus Fails--He Washes His Hands In Feigned Innocence--Delivers Jesus to the Jews For Execution--The Jewish Soldiers Drive Him to Calvary. 11. 1. the devils can do mighty things. by many ties I am bound down to carnal life. His higher self Prevailed. 17. and with their will they uphold lest you should fall?" 12. and they demand a proof of my Messiahship. And then the tempter came and said: "If you be son of Allah. but his friends had found Him and they ministered to Him. and from the temple pinnacle cast down yourself to earth. Did not the Gentile magicians do great things before the Pharaoh? 9. A superstitious people are the Jews. what will I say?" 6. 3. And Jesus said: "Who is it that demands a test? It is no sign that one is Son of Allah because he does a miracle. 8. he came unto the camps of John and taught. If you will give your life for these they shall be yours. the people will believe that you are the Messiah sent from Allah.1. 4. and note its strength and worthiness. Allah." 15. This you can surely do. and he must now begin his divine ministry. behold its honors and its fame! Behold its pleasures and its wealth! 14. He then was hungry. Then Jesus left the wilderness and in the consciousness of Holy breath. The harbinger had paved the way. When I shall stand before the face of men. for did not David say: 'He gives His angels charge concerning you. My heart is fixed." 16. my God." 10. And then the tempter said: "If you will go into Jerusalem. They have a faith that they have . that He might look into His inner heart.
and he was anxiously in waiting for his hour to come. that at the end of every year. 3. 2. And then the Jews exclaimed: "And let His blood be on our hands and on our children's hands. who had engaged in thefts and murders and rapine. 12. he took a bowl of water and in the presence of the multitude he washed his hands and said: 13. Pilate thought to turn this superstition to account to save the Lord Jesus. and so he went again before the Jews and said: 8. seditious band. they fain would make him bear their sins away. according to my custom I will release to you today a prisoner who shall bear you sins away. and his household and his guards. "This man whom you accuse is Son of the Most High Allah. 14. and they believe that when they drive him forth into the wilds. then you can send this Jesus to the wilds and hear no more of Him. His blood is on your hands and not on mine. and you have asked me to release Barabbas. and I proclaim my innocence. or into foreign lands. If you would shed His blood. they are released from sins. Barabbas he released. So every spring before the feast they chose a prisoner from the prisons of the land." 15. Let Jesus be released and let Barabbas pay his debt upon the cross. Among the Jewish prisoners in Jerusalem were three who were the leaders of a vile. but Barabbas was rich and he had bought off priests the boon to be scapegoat for the people at the coming feast. and they began to plot to tear the Roman palace down and drive in exile Pilate. who has been proven guilty of the murder of a score of men. 10. Now. And Pilate trembled like a leaf. At what the ruler said the people were enraged." 16. hear me men. 4. 9. Now. and by a form their own. 7. The man becomes a scapegoat for the multitudes. "You men of Israel.borrowed from the idol worshipers of other lands. and as . This man you drive into the wilds or into foreign lands." 11. 5. and had been sentenced to be crucified. Barabbas and Jezia was among the men who were to die. in fear. When Pilate was assured that civil war would follow if he heeded not the wishes of the mob. They may heap all their sins upon the head of some man set apart to bear their sins. 6.
and then the frenzied mob cried out. with the Silent Brotherhood of Greece. Fully Materialized. He shall be bruised for our transgressions and by His stripes we shall be healed. 1. They said: "A great disaster is to come." 20. And one. and all consumed. The Jews replied. 3. The rabble could not wait until they reached the place of skulls. Caiaphas has said: "We cannot crucify this man. 26. "He is no King. he must be stoned to death and nothing more. and since the bruised and wounded Jesus could not bear His cross. was sitting in a Delphian grove. our gods are mad. Pilate would not give consent that Roman soldiers should imbue their hands in blood of innocence and so the chief priests and the Pharisees took counsel what to do with Jesus. they rushed upon Him. was near the scene. Before Apollo and the Silent Brotherhood In Greece--Appears to Claudia and Juliet On the Tiber Near Rome--Appears to the Priest In the Egyptian Temple at Heliopolis. smote Him with their hands." 25. stood forth and said: "Isaiah said. it seemed to be on fire." 23. "Let him be crucified.the Lord stood forth before the mob. stoned Him and He fell upon the ground. The priests were in the sanctuary and as they looked the Oracle became a blaze of light. As Jesus laid all bruised and mangled on the ground a High Priest called out. . 21. 22. they spit upon Him. from Cyrene. Apollo. A man named Simon." And then they led Him forth toward the hill beyond the city's gates. 27." 18. And then they lifted Jesus from the ground. they have destroyed our Oracle. where criminals were put to death. and at the point of swords they drove Him on. stay you men! Behold the guards of Herod come and they will crucify this man. a man of Allah. The Oracle had spoken loud and long. CHAPTER XVII Jesus Appears. "Stay. And there beside the city's gate they found Barabbas' cross. Caiaphas and the other ruling Jews came forth and gave consent. 2." 24. the ruler said: "Behold your King! And would you put to death your King?" 17. And then the rabble said: "Make haste! let Him be stoned. Now. As soon as they had passed the city's gates. 19. they laid it on the shoulders of this man and made him bear it on to Calvary. we have no King but great Tiberius. The priests were filled with fear. a friend of Jesus.
Go forth and teach the nations of the earth the Gospel of the resurrection of the dead and of eternal life through Jesus. But when the flames had spent themselves. but Allah the One. 16. his wife. a storm swept from the sea. will not fail. and they believed that He was Jesus made manifest. a man stood on the Oracle's pedestal and said: 5. Claudas and Juliet. not by an oracle of wood and gold. 12." 8. the love of Allah made manifest to men. and they were all amazed. but Greece and Crete and all the nations heard. All power in heaven and earth is mine. the One. to you I give all power in heaven and earth. the boat was wrecked and Claudas and his wife were sinking down to death. 14. the living Oracle of Allah. 9. but by the voice of man. who was. . Had walked with Jesus by the sea. arise and walk with me upon the waves. Apollo knew the man who spoke. And Jesus came and took them by the hands and said: "Claudas and Juiet. had heard His words and seen His power. 7. Now Claudas and his wife were on the Tiber in a little boat. Then Jesus disappeared. A thousand people saw three walk on the waves. What I can do all men can do. 21. through images made by man. This Oracle shall fail. "Allah speaks to man. And in a moment Jesus stood before Apollo and the Silent Brotherhood and said: 10." 6. and is and evermore will be. he knew it was the Nazarene who once had taught the wise men in the Acropolis and had rebuked the idol worshipers upon the Athens' beach." 13. for I have risen from the dead with gifts for men. 17. And then he clasped Apollo's hand and said: "My human flesh was changed to higher form by love divine and I can manifest in flesh or in the higher planes of life at will. Go teach the Gospel of the Omnipotence of man. lived on the Palatine in Rome and they were servants of Tiberius. "Behold. now speaks to man through Jesus the only Son. And they arose and walked with him upon the waves. 11.4. and kindred tongues." 15. but they had been in Galilee. "The gods have spoken to the Greeks. 18." 20. and saw them reach the land. 19. I bring to you the title of your vast estate.
28." 24. And that was all he said. are my ambassadors to Rome. Claudas and Juliet whom I have saved from death. I am the resurrection and the life. They that are dead shall live. And Jesus said: "All honor to the masters of this Temple of the Sun. 31. but now He speaks to you through perfect man. which human eyes cannot behold. they knew that he had risen from the dead. There is a holy ministry in death. to light and everlasting life. just as he . 26. This essence quickened by the Holy Breath. the body must disintegrate. The Nazarite appeared and stood upon a sacred pedestal on which no man had ever stood. "All hail!" The great bells of the temple rang and all the temple was ablaze with light. my feet. The priests of Heliopolis were in their temple met to celebrate the resurrection of their brother Nazarite. 36. In flesh of man there is the essence of the resurrection of the dead.22. 37. 23. from darkness and from graves of carnal things. yea every one of them. This was an honor that had been reserved for him who first would demonstrate the resurrection of the dead. And they will point the way and preach the gospel of the Holy Breath and the resurrection of the dead. The essence of the body cannot be quickened by the Holy Breath until the fixed is solved. "He sent His son. 20. And Jesus was the first of all the human race to demonstrate the resurrection of the dead. and this is death. By mouth of gods and demi-gods Allah spoke unto your fathers long ago. So Jesus will lift the sons and daughters of the human race. 27. And make it like the substance of the bodies of the planes above. And then upon these pliant substances Allah breathes. And Jesus said: "You men of Rome." 29. in human flesh to save the world. 39. 35. my side which carnal men have pierced. When Jesus stood upon the sacred pedestal the masters stood and said. but Rome and all of Italy heard. and as I lifted from the watery grave and saved these servants of Tiberius. will raise the substance of the Body to a higher tone. and m any that shall live will never die. Jesus. Behold my hands. I am the manifest of love raised from the dead. 34. 33. 32. 38. 30.
the carnal form is changed to form divine. 43. You know that all my life was one great drama for the sons of men. my death upon the cross. 2. know full well the foes I had to meet. 7. 44. And Pilate sent his scribe who placed upon the stone the seal of Rome. The will of man makes possible the action of the Holy Breath. my brother. The masters looked. To break this Roman seal meant death to him who broke the seal. the mystery of deific life.breathed upon the chaos of the deep when worlds were formed. 40. The tomb in which they laid the body of the Lord was in a garden. 6. I lived to show the possibilities of man. rich with flowers. 46." 47. 5. and every living creature said: "Praise Allah. and Joseph's home was near. and what I am all men shall be. you know about my victories in Gethsemane. And you. the form upon the sacred pedestal had gone. my trials in the courts of men. Before the watch began Caiaphas sent a company of priests out to the garden of Saloam that they might be assured that Jesus' body was within the tomb. They rolled away the stone. and down the garden walk a troupe of white clad soldiers marched in single file. 41. when this was done my earth-tasks all were done. the garden of Saloam. 42. 45. and then the watch began. When will of man and will of Allah are one. What I have done all men can do. In this we have the chemistry of mortal life. the ministry of death. in such a way that he who moved the stone would break the seal. At midnight all was well. . and then they placed the stone again before the door. the resurrection is a fact. And life springs forth from death. a pattern for the sons of men. but suddenly the tomb became a blaze of light. they saw the body there. The Jewish soldiers all were sworn to faithfulness. My human life was wholly given to bring my will to tune with the deific will. 3." CHAPTER XVIII The Resurrection of Jesus--Pilate Places the Roman Seal Upon the Stone Door Of the Tomb--At Mid-night a Company Of the Silent Brothers March About the Tomb--The Soldiers Are Alarmed--Jesus Preaches To the Spirits In Prison--Early Sunday Morning He Rises From the Tomb--The Soldiers Are Bribed By the Priests To Say That the Disciples Had Stolen the Body. 4. but every temple priest.
The soldiers were alert with swords unsheathed and drawn. Jesus did not sleep within the tomb. 26. The masters of all times and climes He met. they fell upon the ground. they returned. In council all the masters sat and talked about the revelations of the coming age. When she. of death and of the resurrection of the dead. the Lord went forth and taught. And in the realm of souls. the Holy Breath. They stood upon the Roman seal. 10. 17. but not a white clad soldier fell. The body is the manifest of soul. At midnight every Jewish soldier heard a voice which said. 15. just to prove the possibilities of man. 22. they unsheathed not their swords. they thought His friends had come to steal the body of the Nazarene. 27. but on the following night the scene was changed. the seal was not disturbed. He broke the chains of captive souls. 28. They stood apart until the white clad soldiers marched away. 24. and then they heard the words again. The Jewish soldiers fled in fear. And they supposed again the friends of Jesus were alert. . Then. The Jewish soldiers were alert. unmanifest. They charged. 13. 21. 23. it was the Silent Brotherhood. and they resumed their watch. And of his promises to clothe himself again in garb of flesh and walk with his disciples. 12. and of his death in sacrifice for man. 19. the stone was in its place. 14.8." which meant: "Lord Jesus arise. and then the light about the tomb grew dim. They came up to the tomb and marched and countermarched before the door. 16. and open up the way of man to perfectness and endless life. shall fill the earth and air with holy breath. They did not even stop. Now. but soul is without its manifest. and led the captives to the light. and in the great assemblies he stood forth and told the story of His life on earth. The garden of Saloam was silent on the Sabbath day. The Jewish soldiers watched and no one else approached the tomb. 25. To give to them the key of life. 9. The captain of the guard cried out to charge. "Adon Mashich Cumi. 18. were coming up to take the body of their Lord away. He sat in council with the patriarchs and prophets of the olden times. they did not speak . they marched and countermarched among the frightened men. 11. He opened up the prison doors and set the prisoners free. 20.
29. It seemed as though the voice was everywhere, and yet they saw no
30. The soldiers blanched with fear, and still to flee meant death for
cowardice, and so they stood and watched.
31. Again, and this was just before the sun arose, the heavens blazed with
light: a distant thunder seemed to herald forth a coming storm.
32. And then the earth began to quake and in the rays of light they saw a
form descend from heaven. They said: "Behold, an angel comes."
33. And then they heard again: "Adon Mashich Cumi."
34. And then the white-robed form tramped on the Roman seal, and then
he tore it into shreds, he took the mighty stone in his hand as though it
were a pebble from the brook, and cast it to the side.
35. And Jesus opened up His eyes and said, "All hail the rising sun; the
coming of the day of righteousness!"
36. And then He folded up His burial gown, His head bands and His
coverings and laid them all aside.
37. He arose, and for a moment stood beside the white-robed form.
38. The weaker soldiers fell to the ground, and hid their faces in their
hands; the stronger stood and watched.
39. They saw the body of the Nazarene transmute. They saw it change
from mortal to immortal form, and then it disappeared.
40. The soldiers heard a voice from somewhere; yea, from everywhere, it
41. "Peace, peace on earth; good will to men."
42. They looked, the tomb was empty and the Lord had risen as He said.
43. The soldiers hastened to Jerusalem, and to the priests, and said:
44. "Behold the Nazarene has risen as He said; the tomb is empty and the
body of the man is gone; we know not where it is." And then they told about
the wonders of the night.
45. Caiaphas called a council of the Jews, he said:"The news must not go
forth that Jesus has arisen from the dead.
46. For if it does, all men will say: "He is the son of Allah, and all our
testimonials will be proven false."
47. And then they called the hundred soldiers in and said to them:
48. "You know not where the body of the Nazarene is resting now, so if you
will go forth and say that His disciples came and stole the body while you
49. Each one of you shall have a silver piece, and we will make it right with
Pilate for breaking of the Roman seal."
50. The soldiers did as they were paid to do.
Jesus Appears, Fully Materialised, To the Eastern Sages In the Palace Of
Prince Ravanna In India--To the Magian Priests In Persia.--The Three Wise
Men Speak In Praise Of the Personality Of the Nazarene.
1. Ravanna, prince of India, gave a feast. His palace in Orissa was the
place where men of thought from all the farther East were wont to meet.
2. Ravanna was the prince with whom the child Jesus went to India with
when twelve years old.
3. The feast was made in honor of the wise men of the East.
4. Among the guests were Mengste, Vidyapati and Lamaas.
5. The wise men sat about the table talking of the needs of India and the
6. The door unto the banquet hall was in the East; a vacant chair was at the
table to the East.
7. And as the wise men talked a stranger entered, unannounced, and
raising up his hands in benediction said, "All hail!"
8. A halo rested on his head, and light, unlike the light of sun, filled all the
[9.The wise men rose and bowed their heads and said, "All hail!"]
10. And Jesus sat down in the vacant chair; and then the wise men knew it
was the Jewish Prophet who had come.
11. And Jesus said: "Behold, for I am risen from the dead. Look at my
hands, my feet, my side.
12. The Roman soldiers pierced my hands and feet with nails; and then
one pierced my heart.
13. They put me in a tomb, and then I wrestled with the conqueror of men. I
conquered death, I stamped upon him and arose.
14. Brought immortality to light and painted on the walls of time a rainbow
for the sons of men; and what I did all men shall do.
15. This gospel of the resurrection of the dead is not confined to Jew and
Greek; it is the heritage of every man of every time and clime; and I am
here a demonstrator of the power of man."
16. Then He arose and pressed the hand of every man and of the royal
host, and said:
17. "Behold, I am not myth made of the fleeting winds, for I am flesh and
bone and brawn; but I can cross the borderland at will."
18. And then they talked together there a long, long time. Then Jesus said:
19. "I go my way, but you shall go to all the world and teach the gospel of
the omnipotence of men, the power of truth, the resurrection of the dead.
20. He who believes this gospel of the son of man shall never die; the dead
shall live again."
21. Then Jesus disappeared, but He had sown the seed. The words of life
were spoken in Orissa, and all of India heard.
22. The Magian priests were in the silence in Persepolis, and Kaspar, and
the Magian masters, who were first to greet the child of promise in the
shepherd's home in Bethlehem, were with the priests.
23. And Jesus came and sat with them; a crown of light was on His head.
24. And when the silence ended Kaspar said: "A master from the Royal
Council of the Silent Brotherhood is here; let us give praise."
25. And all the priests and masters stood and said: "All hail! What message
from the Royal Council do you bring?"
26. And Jesus said: "My brothers of the Silent Brotherhood, peace, peace
on earth, good will to men!
27. The problem of the age has been solved; a son of man risen from the
dead; has shown that human flesh can be transformed into flesh divine.
28. Before the eyes of men this flesh in which I come to you was changed
with speed of light from human flesh. And so I am the message that I bring
29. To you I come, the first of all the race to be transmuted to the image of
30. What I have done, all men will do; and what I am, all men shall be."
31. But Jesus said no more. In one short breath He told the story of His
mission to the sons of men, and then He disappeared.
32. The Magi said: "Some time ago we read this promise, now fulfilled,
upon the dial plate of Heaven.
33. And then we saw this man who has just demonstrated unto us the
power of man to raise from carnal flesh and blood to flesh of Allah, a babe
34. and after many years He came and sat with us in these same groves;
35. He told the story of His human life, of trials, sore temptations, buffeting
36. He pressed along the thorny way of life 'till He had risen and
overthrown the strongest foes of Allah and man; and He is now the only
master of the human race whose flesh has been transmuted into flesh
37. He is the God-man of to-day; but everyone of earth shall overcome and
be like Him, a Son of Allah.

Though bright. 4. but for the good it may be of to others. behold! What is there more that men needeth to know? CHAPTER XXXIX HOLY INSTRUCTIONS FROM THE PROPHET PINNACLE OF WISDOM 1. her attempts are universal. Are not these plain before thy face? And. for she is outrageous. Perception of thyself. more yielding than air. correct her. Learn to esteem as thou ought. Is it beyond the regions of the stars? Yet will her eye discover it. then art thou near the pinnacle of wisdom. The end of her search is truth. . Love it not thyself. with the fool. or as the carcass to the vulture even such is life unto the heart of man. 2. her means to discover it are reason and experience. yet who is he that knoweth its true value? 3. it dazzleth not. even so is the soul to him who wanteth discretion. that thou oughtest to condemn it. for she is irregular. Think not that thou canst lose her in a crowd. 26. But are not these weak. As the eye of the morning to the lark. 5.its course to virtue. Think not. General opinion is no proof of truth. so is the soul that thirsteth after knowledge. Employ the succeeding ones in virtue. that nothing is more valuable. uncertain and fallacious? How then shall she attain unto it? 27. 28. Inquiry is her delight. more flexible than wax. As a sword in the hand of a mad man. Gold cannot buy it for thee neither mines of diamonds purchase back the moment thou hast now lost it. 23. her agility is not to be suppressed.
yet they are not all painful. shortened it to make it even more so. but when thou stretcheth thyself on roses beware of the thorns. Repine not at thy want of knowledge. Wouldst thou improve thy wisom and thy virtue? Alas! What art thou to know? Or who is it that shall teach thee? Badly thou employest the little thou hast. will not He who limited thy span. to live as long as thou oughtest. Would the fish swallow the bait if he knew the hook were hidden therein? Would the lion enter the toils if he saw they were prepared for him? So neither. thy days of sickness. it is thy duty to preserve it. therfore. lo. and where there is the least appearance of evil. Say not unto the crow. know hence thou shalt live afterwards. if born that it has been best to die early. to see the world? All this thou hast done often already. how few seasons hast truly numbered! 15. He who gave thee life as a blessing. were the soul to perish with this clay. 19. While thy life is to others worth more than thy death. 16. and what remaineth? 14. enclosed in the cage before he seeth it. Be honest here. Take from the period of thy life the useless part of it. Accommodate thyself to all. thou sleepest in security. O child of sorrow. Too frequent repetition. be satisfied with the fruits of it? 17. Say not that it were best not to have been born: or. had I not existed?" Good is thy power. 10. As the bird. with the fool. thy thoughtless hours. is it not tiresome? Or is it not superfluous? 18. 9. the want of good is evil. 12. Take off the time of thine infancy. "Where has been the evil. 13. When thy bed is straw. 20. "Why numberest thou seven times thy Lord?" or . to complain that the more is not given thee. thy sleep. even at thy fulness of years. 7. Though its ways are uneven. so neither labor thou vainly to run the state thou art in. with thy days thy cares are shortened. suspect the greatest danger. neither dare thou to ask of thy Creator. To what end. To breathe. To what end would longer life have served thee? Wishest thou to have had an opportunity of more vices? As to the good. and be content with it. A good death is better than an evil life.6. it must perish within the grave. yet teareth not his flesh against its sides. to eat. of the shortness of thy time: remember. 11. it condemneth thee. but know it is alloted thee. dare not. strive therefore. Complain not. and. thy second infancy of age. 8. and if thy question be just. neither would a merciful Father have created him. not as long as thou canst. thou shalt be wise hereafter. wouldst thou live longer.
27. till both are involved in that behind them. so shall thine age be honored. Is it not a scene of delusion. What part of life is it that we should wish to remain with us? Is it youth? Can we be in love with outrage. 22. and temerity? Is it age? Then we are fond of infirmities. as if thou hadst more than enough. O man. What then is life. thou threwest it lightly away. grey hairs are revered. so shall his life be taken away. As one wave pusheth on another. but pleasure that despiseth age. in the life of man. Be virtuous while thou are young. that man should desire it? What. that it is not abundance which maketh rich. Know. our expectations look forward into impossibilities. The wise continueth to live from his first period. and its end is sorrow. but thou regardest it not. Knowest thou to employ life better than these? Then less of it may suffice thee.to the fawn. and to desire as if immortal! 31. Man. a series of misadventures. Our terrors are real evils. and yet thou repinest that it is not gathered again unto thee. licentiousness. if he were immortal. who dares enslave the world. when he knows he can enjoy his tyranny but for a moment. but thou art prodigal. that innocence of manners are the paths of good old age. 34. 23. to dread as mortals. "Why art thine eyes to see my offspring an hundred generations?" Are these to be compared with thee in the abuse of life? 21. 24. Is age respected because it hateth riot? What justice is in this when it is not age that despiseth pleasure. Are they riotous? Are they cruel? Are they ungrateful? Learn from them. It is said. the greatest and the present swallow up the lesser and the past. 32. Virtue can add reverence to the bloom of youth. 30. breathing that he should covet it? 28. rather. 29. before he knoweth that he hath it. and without it. Labor not after riches first. pain is in its middle. 33. the fool is always beginning. Fools. and length of days an honor. but Economy. it is ignorance. 25. CHAPTER XL HOLY INSTRUCTIONS FROM THE PROPHET . even so succeedeth evil to evil. As the arrow passeth through the heart while the warrior knew not that it was coming. a pursuit of evils linked on all sides together? In the beginning. 26. He who neglecteth the present moment. thou are not in want of it. and think thou wilt afterwards enjoy them. age plants more wrinkles in the soul than on the forehead. throweth away all that he hath. what would he not aim at. Enough hath thou of life.
The heart of the vain is troubled while it seemeth content. and in more exalted ones thy face shall not be ashamed. or cherish his heart in its shroud. and thy food unto the hungry. Why should the man of wisdom endanger himself for fools? 4. Intemperance swayeth it whither it will." saith he. conspicuous without use. 8. that she disturb not his soul. and Fear proclaimeth: "Behold. "is my vesture of gold. if the world knows it not?" Give thy raiment to the naked. 10. Weep not therefore at the calamities of the human state. Despair engrosseth much of it. if no eye gaze upon them. but whosoever promiseth it. The hero. Do well whilst thou liveth. the most renowned of human character. while his bread is eaten by another. feedeth himself with wind. Content thyself with deserving praise. his cares are greater than his pleasures. but the bubble of this weakness. and hot not merit. most plainly. 12. and feel that thou deserveth it. deceiveth him. 14. 11. so shalt thou be praised. or what hideth the heart of a man from himself. to what end are my tables filled with dainties. As the man who engageth his wife to remain in widowhood. 7. as the jasmine which feeleth not the scent it casteth around it. What blindeth the eye. rather laugh at its follies. what is he." but Vanity is beyond them all. 2. like Vanity? Lo.THE INSTABILITY OF MAN 1. so is he who expecteth that his praise shall reach his ears beneath the earth. he extendeth his thoughts beyond his being. then others discover thee. "To what purpose. life then is but the shadow of a dream. and biddeth others to take note of it. Why bestoweth thou in every man the flattery of unmeaning words? . The public is unstable and ungrateful. 13. 6. As the tulip that is gaudy without smell. 5. 9. so is the man who appeareth gay. I sit unrivalled therein. when thou seest not thyself. to be paid when he is gone. 3. In the hands of the man addicted to vanity. the grave is not deep enough to hide it. The man who neglecteth his present concerns. His solicitude cannot rest with his bones. As the butterfly who seeth not his own colors. so is the mail who sitteth himself up so high. to revolve how he will behave when greater. but regard not what is said of it. Act as becometh thee in thy present station. Inconstancy is powerful in the heart of man. and thy posterity shall rejoice in hearing it. he bespeaketh praise.
he seeth that he escapeth from himself. his joy is to proclaim it. Beware of irresolution in the intent of thy actions. his pride to hear it reported. yet he knoweth thou will thank him for it." or "See. armed thee. but he perceiveth not how." but "Mark how proud he is of it. Let him who doeth well. with resolution. Nature urgeth thee to inconstancy. which break in their flight. but firmness of mind? 8. beware how he boasteth of it. when returned thee. 9. 4. The inconstant feeleth that he changeth. 15. So shall thy passions have no rule over thee. The vain delighteth to speak of himself. Is not the event of an impulse. for rarely is it of his own will. it. furnished it with weakness. from the loins of thy father inheriteth thou instability. from the womb of thy mother. Speak in sincerity. Thou art. in that which is right. and to accident. but he knoweth not why. and drive from thy door . and thou art happy. Be thou incapable of change.Thou knowest. from without born of uncertainty enforced by accident. and men will rely upon thee. 16. 10. If he hath done anything worth praise. 6. but he seeth not that others like not to hear him. The heart of man cannot attend at once to too many things. loseth reality. and see that thou ever act according to them. What reproacheth reason more than to act contrarieties? What can suppress the tendencies to these. is due the praise. 2. Those who gave thee a body. beware of instability in the execution. How then shalt thou be firm ? 3. 7. The desire of such a man defeateth itself. 5. He knoweth he lieth unto thee. he possesseth it. Establish unto thyself principles of action. thou regardest it not. so shall thy constancy ensure unto thee the good thou possesseth. and thou art wise be wise. if he possesseth that which is worthy of admiration. but He who gave thee a soul. while he treads to earth what would him honor. so shalt thou triumph over two great failings of thy nature. dependent on somewhat else? To thee. CHAPTER XLI HOLY INSTRUCTIONS FROM THE PROPHET INCONSTANCY 1. and thou wilt hear with instruction. Men say not: "Behold he hath done it. various and wavering. He pursueth bubbles. Employ it." 17. He who fixeth his soul on show. 0 man! Therefore guard thyself at all times against.
and in another he knoweth not whether he willeth or not. Today he is the tyrant. his motions are irregular. but the phantom of a dream? In the morning he riseth happy. that hitherward directs its even. the blowing of the wind carrieth away its foundation. though heaven and earth oppose his passage. forget it not. its uninterrupted course . neither hath he had cause for laughter. 22. Yet neither ease nor pain have fixed themselves on him. What wonder then that it falleth? 24. On his brow sitteth majesty. overspreadeth him? 20.whose foot is on earth. Who shall say of the inconstant: "He is joyful. the next he weepeth. 19. and in his heart reigneth tranquility." when. this hour he is a god. tomorrow thou art detested by him. 11. therefore shall none of them abide with him. The happiness of the inconstant is as a palace built on the surface of the sand. tomorrow he grudgeth unto his mouth that which it should eat. cannot be a friend. 15. he proceedeth. Today he loveth thee. he now willeth. 16. What is the life of such a man. in an instant he willeth not. Though obstacles appear in his way. Today he is profuse. and why? He who is arrogant without power. 26. Anxiety and disappointment shall be strangers to thy gates. The inconstant hath no peace in his soul. steadiness is in his port. or reason for his sorrow. whose head is above the clouds? 25. one moment he laugheth. he deigneth not to look down upon them. 14. and why? Himself knoweth not wherefore he now hateth. neither can be at ease whom he concerneth himself with. How should his actions be right. tomorrow thy servant is less humble. Who so hath been an enemy. who hath no rule of his life? Nothing can be just which proceedeth not from reason. Suspect not evil in anyone until thou seeth it. 13. Thus it is with him who knoweth not moderation." when his next breath shall be spent in sighing? 21. But what exalted form is this. 18. His life is unequal. neither is he waxed greater. the moment after the verdure of the grass. 23. 12. for man mendeth not his faults. when thou seeth. at noon he is on the rack. 17.misfortune. or become less. will be servile while there is no subjection. . his soul changeth with the weather. Who shall say of the camelion: "He is black. the next below a worm.

In that wherein thou seemest most strong. but are not able to shake them. in that which is right. would happiness then remain with thee. Vain and inconstant as thou art. He walketh up to it. how canst thou be weak? Is not inconstancy connected with frailty? Can there be vanity without infirmity? Avoid the danger of the one. though. but that which permanently delighteth. thy infirmity declareth against it. and he remaineth there forever. and then know. 31. He marcheth through the embattled legions. The mountains sink beneath his tread. he entereth boldly. Variety is to thee in the place of pleasure. while it was with . Alas! Thy weakness forbiddeth it. Couldst thou choose for thyself. 7. CHAPTER XLII HOLY INSTRUCTIONS FROM THE PROPHET WEAKNESS 1. the lightning serveth but to show the glories of his countenance. 0 child of imperfection. Wherefore loseth the pleasure that is before thee its relish? And why appeareth that which is yet to come the sweeter? Because thou art wearied with the good of this. in that wherein most thou glorieth. 4. the thunder bursteth over his head in vain. would thy Creator lay before thee all that thy heart could ask for. When that is gone. Know that to be content. Storms roar against his shoulders. 3. the greatest of human is to be immutable. in using the good that is about thee. Establish thy heart. 29. 2. his eye discovereth her temple beyond the limits of the pole. or would joy always dwell in thy gates? 6. and thou shalt escape the mischiefs of the other. it contenteth thee not. even in possessing the things which thou hast. His name is Resolution! He cometh from the utmost part of the earth. is to be happy. because thou knoweth not the evil of that which is not with thee. 5. 33. 0 man. he seeth happiness afar off before him. the waters of the ocean are dried up under the sole of his foot. Art not thy desires also frail? Or knoweth thou even what it is thou wouldst wish? When thou hast obtained what most thou soughteth after. 28. the spots of the leopard glow against him unregarded. thou repenteth the loss of it. must be permanent. The tiger throweth herself across his way in vain.
and the contentment of the poor? Shall the wife of thy bosom be despised because she showeth not the virtues of the widow? 21. and out of the worst. and to its end shall sorrow be a stranger. thy doubts are of thine own raising. The virtues are allotted to various stations. He who made .thee. from our joys. Wouldst thou at once have the liberality of the rich. Allah hath given thee no good. 10. Is there any thing in which thy weakness appeareth more. 11. The best things in the hands of a fool may be turned to his destruction. 12. and thou afterwards quarreleth with thyself for preferring it. Joy and grief. The delights of love are ushered in by sighs. As joy is not without its alloy of pain. are united. Be moderate in the enjoyment. Melancholy itself often giveth delight. and it shall remain in thy possession. but he hath given thee also the means of throwing off the evil from it. can at once thy justice destroy him. Seek not after impossiblities. That which succeedeth it. If thy father sink before thee in the divisions of thy country. Join esteem to thy admiration. so shalt thou find in the end content so absolute. 20. tranquility more worth than ecstasy. nor grieve that thou canst not possess them all. The objects thou burnedeth for. 16. sorrow. so neither is sorrow without its portion of pleasure. and no sooner hast thou possessed it. without its admixture of evil. 15. let thy joy be founded on reason. Good things cease to be good in our enjoyment of them. 17. but thou art weary of its presence. 14. are sources of bitterness to us. from our delights arise pain. 8. 13. 0 man. Our own choice only can give them to us entirely. that thou hast not strength either to be good nor to be evil. behold the only circumstances in which thou arrest not! 9. hath no more pleasure to thee. and let the good that is within thy reach content thee. though unlike. Truth is but one. and they terminate in languishment and dejection. that it surpasseth raptures. What nature meant pure sweets. So blended is weakness in thy nature. than in desiring things? It is in the possessing. the wise will find means of good. 18. unite friendship with the love. thou despiseth it. and the extremity of joys are mingled with tears. entirely. is not mercy to put a period to his life? And is it not also death to be his murderer? 23. nauseates with satiety. If thou behold thy brother in the agonies of slow death. and thy duty save his life? 22. 19. Rejoice that thou canst not excel in evil. and in the using of them.
as easy as what is.virtues what they are. rather than one innocent to stand forth against thee. 12. If there is anything lovely. Thou who flattereth with false hopes the criminal that he may confess his guilt. When the people are numerous. is it not knowledge? And yet who is it that attaineth it? 2. when thy sons increase about thy table. art not thou unto him a criminal? Or art thou guiltless. The statesman proclaimeth that he hath it. thou shalt wish ten thousand guilty to have gone free. and to fall before the sword of him whom they have not offended? 6. planted in thee a knowledge of their pre-eminence. That thou mayest not kill him without cause. the ruler of the people claimeth the praise of it -. 8. and learn. Evil is not requisite to man. neither can vice be necessary to be tolerated. CHAPTER XLIII HOLY INSTRUCTIONS FROM THE PROPHET THE INSUFFICIENCY OF KNOWLEDGE 1. and the end shall be always right. Is thy purpose answered by the event? Is thy soul satisfied with his confession? Pain will enforce him to say what is not. 5. and anguish hath caused innocence to accuse herself. when thy judge shall bid thee account for this. dareth thou to remember. If the objects of thy desire demanding the lives of a thousand sayeth thou not: "I will have it. Sayeth thou. But be wise. and that their blood is as rich as thine ? 7. sendest thou them not out to slay the innocent. Act as thy soul dictates to thee. that justice cannot be executed without wrong? Surely thine own words condemn thee. that thou mayest prove if he be guilty. . created also these. 0 ruler. how many crimes committed by the decree of the council! 4. if there is anything desirable. because he cannot punish it? 9. that thou mayest rack the innocent? 10." Surely thou forgetteth that He who created thee. 11. When thou commandest to the torture him whom is but suspected of ill. if there is anything within the reach of man that is worthy of praise. 0 thou that are to command the nations! One crime authorized by thee is worse than the escape of ten from punishment. 0 blindness to all truth! 0 insufficience of the wisdom of the wise! Know.but findeth the subject that he posssesseth it? 3. yet how many evils are permitted by the connivance of the laws. thou dost worse than kill him. thou detsroyeth him innocent.
and the ruby are as dirt beneath her feet. Naturally doth man desire the truth. When thou givest an oath. 24. More worth is she than pearls. but to teach thee thine infirmities. dissimulation raiseth friends. for when art arrived at her. and oaths are unnecessary. is it not frailty? 23." 25. The way to her is labor. therefore seek her carefully. 26. The tender of heart is turned from his purpose by supplications. if thou wouldst arrive at the knowledge of her. better than the friends obtained by flattery? 19. therefore pursue her manfully. 16. he is not offended at it." Are not the enemies made by truth. But weary not on the way. 18. the emerald and the sapphire. when it is before him. 21. he will not apprehend it. for that is amiable. Wouldst thou see thine insufficence more plainly? View at thy devotions! To what end was religion instituted. Whom should suspicion affright. so shall the brightness of her countenance dazzle thee in thy approaches. and I will avoid it. Say not unto thyself: "Behold. He that giveth a denial with reason. shall suffer a repulse with moderation. As the owl is blinded by the radiance of the sun. 20. say not therefore to thyself: "I will not play the fool by halves. when thou swearest thou wilt not deceive. truth breedeth hatred. but the weakness of man bareth not its splendor. and I will follow it. learn to be honest. and if it force itself upon him. the toil shall be to thee for pleasure. answer with freedom. to remind thee of thy weakness. Doth it not remind thee that thou art dust? Doth it not tell thee that thou art ashes? And behold repentance. shall reprove another with boldness. how shalt thou arrive at the knowledge of truth? How shalt thou ascend to the footstep of her throne? 14. 15. The fault is not in truth. first bow thyself at her footstool. except the guilty? 28. the better. to show thee that from Heaven alone art thou to hope for good? 22. 27. the .13. attention is the pilot that must conduct thee into her port. first inform thyself of thine own ignorance. The shorter follies are. Insufficient as thou art to the maintenance of justice. If thou wouldst mount onto her throne. and upon the face of him that receiveth it. yet. He that heareth his own faults with patience. Learn to be just. 17. and repentance may be forgotten. If thou art suspected. behold it spreadeth shame upon thy face.

Its name is Misery. pleasure is a stranger and visiteth thee by times. there is nothing of it. but to be just. doth he not call himself a monster? 11. there are a thousand by which he may be destroyed. in thy breast alone. 14. and blesseth the death of his father. Know thou. yet there is a thing in which thou art strong and unshaken. CHAPTER XLIV HOLY INSTRUCTIONS FROM THE PROPHET MISERY 1.

Feeble and insufficient as thou art. use well thy reason.proud is rendered more obstinate by entreaty. but thine own passions? 3. Every part of thy frame is capable of sorrow. Pleasures can be admitted only simply. be prudent. the glory and the shame are misplaced. He who begetteth a man. 5. add not unto it by thy own perverseness. exert it.Lo! men adorn the instruments of death with gold and gems and wear them above their garments. and the visits of joy shall remain long with thee.

He who gave thee these. There is but one way for a man to be produced. Custom cannot alter the nature of truth. what is its source. There is no praise or honor to him who giveth being to another. And behold. 12. 7. too much of this thou art born into. but few and narrow are the paths that lead to delight. Yet he who hath many children. the sense of thine insufficience commandeth thee to hear. is it not shameful? Thy destruction. notwithstanding. 9. the prerogative of thy nature. thou must hear without thy passions. neither can the opinion of man destroy justice. It is the character of thy being. but pains rush in a thousand at . While the savage curseth the birth of his son. that in this is error. but triumphs and empire are the rewards of murder. and sorrow will be cast behind thee.
