My favorite part of Priest bk begins where you left off!
"If, in the realms into which the luciferic constantly streams and
into which the ahrimanic constantly streams, we look towards the divine
that holds the balance, we find there pure love as the fundamental
force of everything that streams continuously,forming the human being
outwardly, and giving him soul and spirit inwardly...In the part of the
divine that is associated with the human being, we find nothing except
pure love. This love is something inward; souls can experience it
inwardly. It would never achieve an outward appearance if it first did
not build itself a body out of the etheric element of light. When we
observe the world in a genuinely occult manner we cannot but help say
to ourselves : The ground of the world is the being of inward love
appearing outwardly as light.
This is not something merely believed by those who can discern such
things; it is knowledge objectively won: The universe in so far as the
human being is rooted in it,is the being of inward love appearing
outwardly through light.It is being because it is to do with all the
beings of the higher hierarchies who are carried by this love and who
inwardly experience this love which, however, if we want to employ an
abstract idea, appears as light. The outer appearance of beings is
love, and the outer appearance of love is light."
Cayce Reading echoes development:
'For we are indeed as laborers ,co-laborers in the vineyard of the
Lord - or of they who are fearful of His coming. And we choose each day
whom we will serve! And by records of time and space, as we have moved
through the realms of His kingdom, we have left our mark upon same.
Hence, in the fruits of that - as is given oft, as the fruits of the
spirit does man become aware of the infinite penetrating, or
interpenetrating the activities of all force of matter, or that which
is a manifestation of the realm of the infinite into the finite - and
the finite becomes conscious of same."
