Extracts from the Book of Wisdom

Dasa Mula salatus mia portus sella domus countenartus bes sults mor pelat das a ID.
The man who holds secrets within his countenance needs must hold a shame within his ID.

***

Loyalty has three roads; first, loyalty to the Great Mind, second, loyalty to yourself. These roads must be travelled in truth to discover the third.

***

Truth is quietness and beauty, it has no need to impress those who listen since it can only be itself. Falsehood is aggressive and ugly since it seeks to make its listeners accept it as truth.

***

If man looks outside for his spiritual content he may well walk in error for his seeing will be what he himself desires it to be and it will delude him. Man must look within for this content, and sorrowful as it may be, must accept what he finds therein and work well where there may be error to bring it to peace and order.

The sentinel waited at the Gate of Time and saw two travellers returning HOME. One was alert, bright, light of tread, albeit the light was not of great brightness. The second traveller was weak, borne down as if with great weight, dusty and travel worn, but the light was of such beauty and content that as he drove forward to the Gate it spread far and wide. The first traveller approached the Sentinel with anticipation, but the Sentinel stepped forward and fondly embraced the weary one saying "Come friend. I will take you to the Lake and help to refresh you for surely I see that you are a Warrior who has done well in the light of your Master."
