7:1.1 To break the chain of impulsive acts
takes first a focus of your mind
of what you feel and what you think.
7:1.2 Second then is your firm resolve
to bear the pain of doing-without
reinforced with an inward strength
from your love-force to change your mind.
7:7 To disagree with someone from love
is to accept their point of view
that does no harm to anyone,
and which otherwise would do no good.
7:7.1 Let justice temper your blinding love
for just your own who “can do no wrong.”
Teach yourself and your own as well,
that love sans justice is blinded will.
7:7.2 If you hold that love’s your way—or God,
yet will not try to understand
other people beyond your ken,
then you love in ignorance.
7:8 Love is creation, but does destroy
when love in others of themselves
suck the love from another’s being
for their own aggrandizement.
7:8.1 Love is enactment of world meaning
in creation and destruction
of ordered processes and forms
that keep it altogether as one.
7:13 Be a love-force in all your acts
by being aware of what you do,
and intend to do for the good
for yourself including others.
7-13.1 To be aware of here and now
is hard to do amid life’s din;
but harder still is to be aware
of what might, what should, and will be.
7:13.2 Awareness takes a quiet mind —
self-assured, of broad perspective
of what is really important
beyond the pale of life’s allure.
7:13.3 Try not to judge the person himself
as worthy of your love or hate;
but rather see the image of
life’s purpose acting through his being.
7:15 Make your vows to your centered soul.
whereof the meaning of life resides,
to do or not to do what’s best
to live your life straight from your soul.
7:15.1 Is there such a thing as soul
supernatural to this life?
I would venture there is for sure;
Yet not a soul as one by one.
7:15.2 Soul I know as being-pure,
where nothing is except itself:
being inclusive of everything,
yet of itself is but itself.
7:15.3 What good is soul to us in life
as pure abstraction ever remote?
Think of it as bond of unity,
and that you’re It—you’re everything!
7:15.4 “What is soul?” you want to know–
A question touching life and death.
Soul is the bond of unity:
that which keeps all things at, as, one.
7:15.5 Soul as the bond of unity
is the metaphysical name
for the physical name of will,
or for the human name of love
7:15.6 “Soul”: the word for you alone;
“Love” the word for others with them;
“Unity” the word for the whole;
and MEANING the word for all words.
7:15.7 Let the thought of soul be your strength
against the drag of inertia’s pull
of body and mind of weak will
that bar you from accomplishment.
7:15.8 May your mind be led by soul.
May you be inspired thereof.
And if that happens, you’ll win the fight
of life in life whatever occurs.
