      Robert Browning  

      Dear Friends,
      Some mightn't know that the poet Robert Browning
      came from a family that was well acquainted with spiritual science.
      In his poem on Paracelsus he gives the Elder Brothers a mention:

      "Such men are even now upon the earth,
      Serene among the half-formed creatures round
      Who should be saved by them and joined to them."

      Some more lines from Paracelsus:

      "Truth is within ourselves; it takes no rise
      From outward things, what'er you may believe.
      There is an inmost center in us all,
      Where truth abides in fullness; and around,
      Wall upon wall, the gross flesh hems it in,
      This perfect, clear perception -- which is truth,
      A baffling and perverting carnal mesh
      Binds it, and makes all error: and, to KNOW,
      Rather consists in opening out a way
      Whence the imprisoned splendor may escape,
      Than in effecting entry for a light
      Supposed to be without."
