Then the only purpose of our life here on earth, if there be any, is the successful attainment of life's demands. But, our true life has quite different demands from those with which we are familiar. It does not want the joy experienced by this individual self only; it desires joy from all around.



It does not wish for a momentary peace, but for one that is everlasting. It does not desire to love a beloved held in the arms of mortality. It needs a beloved to be always before it. It does not want to be loved only for today and perhaps not tomorrow. It wishes to float in the ocean of love.




Seek God as your love, lover and beloved, his treasure, his possession, his honor, his joy, his peace; and this attainment in its perfection alone fulfills all demands of life both here and hereafter.
