3:20.1 Rejoice! I have good news to tell!
Of a way of Love as something new:
that Love is everything and One,
is of good and evil and beyond.
4:5 Love binds the world as principle
of willed cohesive unity;
though strife opposes unity,
it is strictly consequential.
4:5.1 All things will the integrity
of their individual unity;
and whatsoever threatens it,
exists as strife of separateness.
4:5.2 Strife is pain of separateness
in all living sentient beings;
in inanimate form and matter,
it is force of disintegration.
4:5.3 As human beings of flesh and blood,
we suffer through the force of strife;
but as transcendent human beings,
we are the principle of Love.
4:5.4 Without love, strife is but a nullity;
for to what purpose would strife be
were there naught for it to undo,
since there must be for there not to be.
4:5.5 Strife is love in conflict with itself
in all its multiplicity;
for everything is Love as one
that cannot coexist as one.
4:6 Strife in everyday human terms
is conflict of opposition,
felt as pain of sink or swim
—and love holds out as best it can.
4:6.1 As Love enjoins all things as one,
so strife destroys this unity;
but it can only break what is
and that which is embodies strife.
4:6.2 Strife is love in conflict with itself
in all its multiplicity;
In which case, Love conquers all things
—Even itself in form of strife.
4:9 Love is the “Son”—the Soul of Meaning:
our one eternal heritage.
And when we act in love toward all,
We radiate transcendent Meaning.
4:9.1 My Soul of Love, I am its being,
though here live within my mind—:
mortality my destined end.
an end that is the ONE beginning.
4:9.2 That which holds all things together
Is all things together as one;
Love we call it—the soul of being:
Its meaning essentially we are.
4:15 Unity is love manifested
in myriad multiplicity
of forms in interrelations
separate but together as one.
4:17 Those who have a beauty of soul
radiate the beauty of Love
as the inwardness of unity
as the pure light of Meaning’s bliss.
4:17.1 “It’ is your soul I love” means
It is the love in you I love,
your loving nature from its source,
suffusing your humanity.
4:17.2 O, my Soul! I am as Love!
It’s so hard to bear this life,
that without my mind on you, I sink;
yet even that I can hardly do.
4:17.3 Love and Soul—interchangeable:
when “love” is felt power is spent;
when soul” is thought principle is meant.
they mean the same differently.
4:17.4 Love, the bond of everything as one,
is One itself indivisible:
The soul of all that is as, at, one,
the soul of everyone and thing.
4:17.5 Love is One indivisibly,
in which all things are as, at, one,
as intimations of their Source.
