Diverse means are adopted for the purpose of gaining the object of life. They may be correct if the heart is connected with it in the real sense so as to be absorbed in the essence of real life. We are bred to have union with Reality, which we have emerged from. We have brought with us the very essence of Infinity, and we should try to keep close to it in order to give freedom to our thought for absorption in the Infinite. If we neglect it we remain bound to activity of thought, and not to the Reality at the root, which is limitless. The hymns and prayers offered generally result in flattery when one is dumb to the real spirit of the essential character.
