The Law Is the Living Word

The law is the living word of a living God to living prophets for living men. In everything that is life is the law written. You find it in the grass, in the tree, in the river, in the mountain, in the birds of heaven, in the fishes of the sea; but seek it chiefly in yourselves. God so made life and all living things that they might by the everlasting word teach the laws of the true God to man. God wrote not the laws in the pages of books, but in your heart and in your spirit. They are in your breath, your blood, your bone; in your flesh, your bowels, your eyes, your ears, and in every little part of your body. They are present in the air, in the water, in the earth, in the plants, in the sunbeams, in the depths and in the heights. They all speak to you that you may understand the tongue and the will of the living God.

Man is the Son of the Earthly Mother, and from her did the Son of Man receive his whole body. Purify the temple that the Lord may dwell within and occupy a place worthy of him.

Angel of Air: my body breathes the air of the Earthly Mother, and my spirit breathes the truth of the Heavenly Father

Angel of Water: I receive my blood from our Earthly Mother and the truth from our Heavenly Father

Angel of Sunlight: my body basks in the sunlight of the Earthly Mother, and my spirit basks in the sunlight of the truth of the Heavenly Father

The angels of air and of water and of sunlight are brethren. Holy, likewise, is their embrace. They are indivisible children of the Earthly Mother, so do not cast aside those whom earth and heaven have made. Let these three brother angels enfold you every day and let them abide with you.
