19 "Through humanity, the nature of reality will be revealed; the true and the beautiful will be manifested; the divine plan will eventually work out, and that energy be transmitted to all forms in nature which will enable the inner spiritual reality to emerge."

20 "Harmlessness is the expression of the life of the man who realizes himself to be everywhere."

21 "The heart of humanity is sound and out of the present chaos and perhaps largely because of it, there will emerge those competent to deal with the situation and adequate to the task of unification and synthesis."

22 "Study your daily conduct and words and thoughts so as to make them utterly harmless. Set yourself to think those thoughts about yourself and others which will be constructive and positive, and hence harmless in their effects."

23 "Just as the varied organs of the human body are inter-related by the nervous system, so within the body of the planet are the various kingdoms in nature and the multiplicity of forms. Back of the objective universe is the subtler sensitive body – one organism, not many, one sentient, responsive, connected form."
