THE PILGRIM'S PROGRESS.

SARAH ELIZABETH GRISWOLD.

In the midnight's mighty silence,

In the morning's rosy light,
In the noontide's vivid splendor,

In the darkening shades of night,
Whisper ever mighty meanings —

Themes of import most profound,
Messages of peace and comfort,

Throbbing on the airs around;
Murmuring in the ocean's surges,

Sighing in the whispering leaves —
All of joyful nature's voices

Render thanks to Him who gives
Love and truth and joy and gladness,

Power and might His will to do;
Man, His image and His likeness,

Strength and courage to pursue
Paths that seem so rough and thorny,

Judging by the world's dim light,
But when 'lumined by God's presence

Grow to be surpassing bright.
Pilgrim, wouldst thou linger, falter ?

Dost thou think alone thou art?
Close thine eyes, so dim and weary,

Quit thou thy throbbing heart.
All the way was trod before thee,

See the footprints of the Lord;
See! the light is growing brighter,

See the sunshine through the cloud.
Listen, hear the Master saying,

“I in God, and thou in me;
Fear not, I am with thee ever."

Look, O Pilgrim, look and see,
Shining is the path before thee,

Radiant with a light divine,
Forms of beauty hover 'round thee;

Brother Pilgrim, peace is thine.

BY LEO VIRGO. And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good ? there is none good but one, that is, God.-- Mark 10:18.

The understanding of the great Truth that all is Mind involves the sequence that all that appears in the invisible and the visible are groups of ideas, or states of consciousness.

Hence the eating of the fruit of the tree in the midst of the garden by Adam and Eve is a symbolical description of their coming into new states of consciousness.

They had existed in a state where ideas were in their original harmony of arrangement under the impulse of the Divine Mind. The ego had not asserted its free prerogative, but remained in ignorance of that privilege — the privilege of giving up its state of innocent guidance and launching out in its own way.

It is the privilege of the ego to become acquainted with all its rights, regardless of the severity of the experience it may pass through in coming into this knowledge.

When the son becomes of age the just father always gives him his share of the patrimony to do with as he deems best. If he goes into a far country and squanders it, he has done only what he might be liable to do at any time. If the father saw his liability to make such a move and restrained him by withholding his inheritance, he would nevertheless eventually find himself the possessor of his right and free to do with it as he willed.

So it is within reason and logic to say that man could not be the executive department of the Godhead without being free to exercise all the prerogatives thereof.

Then the Garden of Eden resolves itself into the One Universal Mind of God in which all things are
