For what profit have you if you should know even all the world, but have no knowledge
of the mystery within?
For I tell you truly, he who knows all things but knows not his own soul, even the
same shall lack all things.
~ Yeshua 22:31-32
...fear not those which are able to kill the body only, for the soul of man perishes
~ Yeshua 49:21
By this shall you dwell richly in the wisdom of your soul, having been made free
of all hatred, envy, anger, and greed.
For such things do blind the soul, to fill the mind with darkness; and the errors
of your life shall follow hard after you, making your life an utter waste.
But if you would free your soul of hatred, and anger, and envy, and greed, then shall
that peace descend upon you wherein all sorrows end; and you shall be filled with
~ Yeshua 51:9-11
Seek not for goodness beyond yourself, for it is given you already; for in the pathways
of the soul shall you find a fount of unending love, and mercy, and compassion, and
hope, and faith exceeding.
~ Yeshua 51:14
Therefore, teach unto men the beginning of that wisdom which I have given unto all
the children of men. For in the beginning did I breathe into man a portion of my
soul that therein they might find both wisdom and joy.
~ Wisdom 22:27
Now let as many as will, meditate in the stillness of their soul; for therein shall
they find springs of living water that in the midst of great want, might be found
an abundance of life.
~ Wisdom 22:32
Above all things, therefore, guard safely the wisdom of your soul, for from its treasury
shall flow the issues of life and death, and life again.
~ Wisdom 26:39
Thus it was that in a time beyond all your yesterdays was there found neither God
nor Goddess but Man only; and in the world of the First Creation was he brought forth
in darkness, knowing only what the senses of the body would permit.
Among the spirit children of many Gods is this word not given, have you yourself
not also heard: how that God was once a man, to evolve himself from less to greater?
So it was that in a time before forever, even I, as a man on the First World did
dwell; being the first to make for himself a living soul which the darkening shade
had no power to touch or put out again.
~ Enlightenment 5:27-29
For even as a child is given shape and life through the coming together of opposites,
being in the man and the woman bound, even so is the soul of man given shape and
life also by the coming together of good and evil.
And as a child drawn freshly from the womb is made to live and breathe in the midst
of great travail, so in like manner is the soul of man drawn forth from the midst
And though the soul of man in its beginning prove weak and frail, yet shall I set
forth the way wherein the soul, in strength, might grow, that I might draw it forth
~ Enlightenment 5:43-45
Know, therefore, that God shall grant unto the children of men the knowledge of good
and evil, that by such oppositions as they might see, some greater wisdom might yet
be found; unto these then shall the power be given to fashion unto themselves a living
soul, being beyond death but immortal and filled with endless hope.
~ Enlightenment 7:27
For the character of the Self is the only destiny.
For Character is made and not inherited,
Exposing within the simplest of men and women,
The mystery of a far more noble birth,
To make of paupers, Kings and Queens
Dressed in endless glory.
~ Book of Pearls 13:6
31. Know then that in the living of many lives do we add to our soul the wealth of
many things, being together bound through the experiences of one life and then another,
revealing in their subtle touch, a strength and knowing beyond the years which we
32. To be seen by us, in a sudden flash, as inspiration from above, but which does
most often come from the treasury of our soul, which soul does hold within its depths
the sum of who we are, having contained therein the wisdom gleaned from every life
which we have lived.
33. For there is given to every child the spirit which comes from God, which spirit
is born of God through love and gentle breath; but in the living of the mortal life
do we build within our spirit the soul of deeper knowing, being itself beyond the
confines of the spirit, but which does itself reach out forever.
34. Thus through reincarnation do the children of God build by careful measure the
depth and height and width of all their soul, to place within the spirit of their
truer self a treasury filled with wisdom and subtle knowing, being ever anxious to
reveal itself within us, to fill our heart with wonder.
35. Know then that if you will seek daily the joy of eternal things, then shall the
soul within you reveal the lives of ages past, here a little, there a little, being
in yourselves dressed in wisdom to touch the heart of God.
~ 4th Endowment 9:31-35
45. For the soul of every man and every woman does dwell complete within the very
spirit; yet is the soul within its inward parts without boundaries and limitations,
becoming in itself a kingdom filled with many mansions, which very mansions are dressed
full round by endless horizons.
46. And there in the kingdom of the soul is there found the sum of who they are,
containing within its light all the things which were, or are, or which might have
47. Having within its treasury a completeness of every life, whether mortal or immortal,
being made always ready for the spirit to enter in whereby it might see and hear
and smell and touch, to live again some happy moment filled with joy;
48. Or to study with thoughtful heart, the things which could have been if they had
proved but willing; yet in such deep and good reflections be untouched by pity or
doubt or sorrow or guilt.
49. But becoming themselves as those enlightened from within, to see more clearly
still the path which they might walk to yet some greater glory, becoming themselves
as always guided by the spirit and soul together.
50. For the flesh of the body is the door to the spirit within; and by the doing
of spiritual things is there revealed the pathway to the soul, being together as
all in one and one in all, ever moving and flowing into each the other through the
rhythms of their life.
51. Thus in the mansions of the soul is time made to serve those which would enter
in, yielding up for their joy and consideration the seeds of enlightenment whereby
they might prove themselves benefited in the touching of such height and depth and
breadth as in them dwells.
~ 4th Endowment 14:45-51
27. For in surrendering to lesser passions do you forget the thing you are, placing
within your heart and before your eyes a person who is both broken and lost, and
made compelled to surrender that far more nobler self which had its birth in God.
28. Having sought for yourself a momentary surcease from pain and torment, which
things afflict both body and mind in the moment of your trial.
29. But when you have surrendered yourself for safety’s sake, to end the momentary
torment, then does the soul within become as something tormented and confused, for
you have surrendered that which is eternal for the sake of a temporary comfort.
30. Thus would I have you know, my dearest child, that such strength as would inspire
me to endure the heated blast of those who torment, to see beyond the pain to the
things of greatest worth, even this strength is come from God alone.
31. Thus in cleaving unto God is there found the strength of great resolve, chasing
away through godly grace the rule of lesser passions and the need for dark revenge;
to fill you up instead with a far more noble purpose.
32. For it is the soul which you must live with, long after the pain is gone. And
if you should betray your soul to ease for yourself a momentary torment, then do
you become as someone lost and a stranger to your soul; having forgotten the purpose
for which you live and the goal towards which you strive.
~ 5th Endowment 9:27-32
For the soul is filled with many mansions,
Rich and well adorned.
Dressed in wonders long forgotten,
It beckons from within.
Sounding as some distant echo,
Calling from afar;
Ever hopeful that you will enter,
To find but who you are.
Fashioned not of mortal dust,
Nor simple bone and blood;
But made of stars and endless time,
To hold the heart of God.
And so the Master finds a refuge,
Quick and near at hand;
Being sheltered from the storms
Which lash and rage without.
Dwelling soft within the soul, To walk through many mansions.
