When I say "Loch Lomond, Scotland, is beautiful," I do not only mean the actual "Loch," but the surroundings, the environments, go to make up this beauty,—the trees, the rocks, the moss, the heather, the everything round about,—and the oftener we visit Loch Lomond, the more of the individual beauties come under our notice. A thing that escaped us on our first visit will, on our next, perhaps, come out very plainly, and so we grow to love the place more and more because of these "treasures of beauty" that we have found.

So it is with God, when I say, "God is Good, God is Love." I do not mean just this bald fact, I must not stop there, I must not draw a circle round about my conception of God. I must not forget that Creator and creation, Mind and its thought, divine Principle and its idea cannot be separated, they go to make up this locality of Beauty.
