DIVINE LAW

From time immemorial the world has sighed for peace and plenty, for justice and equity, and has striven to attain these human ideals by various methods, all more or less unsatisfactory. Mortals have, however, slowly but surely come to see that the reflection of Love is the highest and most satisfactory way of gaining harmony, and this is manifested at the present day in the many endeavors for the greater education of the masses, the betterment of institutions, and the protection of the rights of communities.

Nevertheless, in spite of higher ideals and greater refinement generally, mortals still break out periodically in law-lessness and rioting, wars and strikes, hoping to adjust seeming wrongs and establish peace and equity. When the results desired seem to be thus achieved, they foolishly imagine that to such methods they owe the accomplishment of their purpose, instead of perceiving that out of evil and error nothing good can proceed. From the cradle onward, mortals have rarely gained anything of progress, love, or true kindness, through contentions and strife. They ignorantly think otherwise, and so it happens that hitherto revolutions have often seemed their highest way to some good end.
