Seed Within Inward Teacher Christ the Light of the World Truth Love Compassion

The Measure of Thy True Worth

will set thee free.

The Seed Within . . . the Inward Teacher . . . Christ the Light who lights every soul that comes into the world
will show us our True Measure
.

He will show us how we best love ourselves

by seeing ourselves truly, without pride, without fear, without rancor,
with love, with hope, with patience, with compassion.
All these things thee must first accept as Gifts from God, then thee can express them as Virtues in the world.

God's Love and Compassion is Greater than we can fully Comprehend.

God will reward those who are able to be obedient to the Measure of the Truth that they are given. Do not be jealous for another's Measure. Do not settle for a false humility and do not abandon thy compassion for thyself. Instead, learn thy True Worth and the Right Nature of thy place in God's Heart and thy place in the world he has created.

God will move frightening and impenetrable emotional mountains, jungles and brambles in and around thy Hearts and bring to new life the smothered soul hidden therein.

"Guided up to God"

FRIENDS, I do warn and exhort you all in the Presence of the Lord God, to Meet together in the Measure of Life, that with it ye may be guided up to God, and in Unity kept together up to him, the Father of Light and Life; and God Almighty be with you! And that the Dread and Terror of the Lord may among you be, and Deceit confounded; and that with the Measure of Life all your Minds may be guided up to God, that so ye all in Peace and Love may be kept.

And let this be sent among Friends, to be read ...
