is your position in regard to the world or the errors of the world?
You cannot embrace both.
If you embrace the world you embrace its
errors and become a servant to its laws, and the spirit (or truth)
departs to the God that gave it.
But if you hold on to the truth, the
world is in subjection to you, and instead of becoming a servant, you
become a teacher of truth to the world and lead other minds to the
of your happiness being in the world, the world's happiness is in
Here is your true position, and this is the struggle you will
