The Mount of Inspiration

In the book of Job we read, "There is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding." There comes a time in the experience of most people engaged in constructive and useful activity, when the "spirit in man" protests against the stereotyped, the traditional, the negative. When such no longer satisfy, thought, detached in a measure from the material sense of things, obtains better views. "The inspiration of the Almighty" and the spiritual understanding which accompanies it, meet the need for intelligent expression, and open the way for the fulfillment of righteous desire.

The word "inspiration" is sometimes loosely used. To some, inspiration may mean a human aptitude for doing certain right things, while to others its presence is marked by useful, productive effort. Many have believed that they were blocked in their efforts because they lacked inspiration. Thus, viewed from the human standpoint, inspiration is elusive, a state of thought to be captured on occasion, but not enduring.
