58 “How can one man alone, change the lives of so many? For the world is greater
than all my might, being filled with nations and peoples of every kind. What, therefore,
is the life of one man when compared to the ways of all men together? By what means
would I bend forever the fate of nations and of kings?”
59 And Areta answered, saying: “Come, my son, and I will reveal in you the power
and strength of Oneness; for it is certain that one man, of himself, cannot do the
things which I desire, to save from oblivion the life of every man and every woman.
60 Therefore, my son, change the life of one man only and he shall stand beside
you; then shall these two, being as one together, change the lives of two others
also; and then shall these four men together, be as the force of one.
61 And if you will continue, to move in small degrees, then shall these four men
become greater and greater in numbers still, to move, of themselves, in patience
throughout the affairs of men;
62 Even until there should stand beside you a multitude of men who, being made like
unto yourself in word and deed, shall stand as one together, to change by subtle
means the fate of nations and kings.
63 Know then, my son, that in the many which stand beside you, even these shall
be made as one in you and you in them; and in this Oneness are all things made possible.”
Yet for all the forces arrayed against us, despite the vastness of their numbers
and the fierce resolve of all the Demiurge, still shall we endure and in our glory
continue on; reaching out and ever seeking to bring to pass the immortality and eternal
life of man.
For in strength alone is virtue found, not in the strength of your arm but rather
in the heart and mind instead, causing that you should endure well the trials of
life without complaint, being yourselves determined in seizing hold the heart of
Being yourselves discontent with lesser things, but reaching forth beyond your fears
to touch the throne of God, proving yourselves in the midst of fire and hurt as one
indomitable, relentless, resolute, invincible and unyielding to lesser things.
Being in your mind made deaf to the jeers and ridicule, scorn and mockery of lesser
men who are themselves as dead already, but being in your heart filled with brave
new words, and a courage both high and noble bearing, even while yet you fear.
For the end of Man shall not come with fire, neither shall Man most slowly fade;
but the end of the age shall come with a shout, the sound of joy and wonder, for
the Gods of Heaven shall descend from Xion, to stand upon the earth, and in the Gardens
of Ondi-Ahman shall the children of men be gathered.
Take heart therefore, and do not fear tomorrow, but attend with all diligence the
present moment in which you live; let the dreams of God guide all your labors, planting
in each present moment the seeds of what shall be; and day by day shall you draw
all future Man to the Gardens of Ondi-Ahman, to see for themselves the very Gods
