The Treatment of Animals

   Animals are man's younger brothers in evolution. It is man's responsibility to serve them as they in their turn serve him. "A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast; but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel." With spiritual Illumination comes the realization of complete unity. Henceforth mistreatment of animals is unthinkable. All are one in God.


   Jesus said: "Blessed are the poor in spirit," and in Proverbs we read many things along the same line:

   All spiritual teachers emphasize the supreme importance of the cultivation of humility. Love and humility, and discrimination which results from a blending of the two, are the three prime essentials toward successful spiritual accomplishment. Failure to pass beyond the Portals of Light may ofttimes be traced to the lack of these requisites.

   The bonds of friendship among the disciples of a Mystery School are indissoluble; neither time, distance nor space are barriers. The Teacher binds them to himself and to one another in a bond like unto no other. Broken friendship among members of occult brotherhoods is a tragedy of souls and bears heavy causation and an extended one for future settlement.

   Throughout Scripture, the word honey is of deep spiritual significance. The word as used here refers to the hidden or esoteric teachings. The aspirant is warned against being over-eager in his search for occult truths. It is better to receive a little and to live according to that provided than to seize avidly upon marvelous intellectual concepts and neglect to practice the common virtues incident to spiritual life. True wisdom expresses itself in terms of love, first, last and always. It means fellowship, brotherhood, and its emanations received clairvoyantly appear as a sweet, golden radiance, the "Venus gold" of the alchemist.

   The earliest Mystery Schools taught that to lose oneself was to find eternal life. Self is the great barricade to the threshold of the new life. "He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house: but he that hateth gifts shall live." (Proverbs 15:27)
