He that knows how to tame and master them by Art, To couple them together, And to lead them in and out of the forest, Lambsprkng justly be called a Master. Cook the sulphur well with the sulphur, And hold your tongue about it: How would one carry out our spiritual purpose if one wasn’t a master of our terrestrial affairs?
The aspect of submission, surrender to a higher purpose, is a critical element in the advanced path of illumination. Speaking to this notion, this part of the text: No more theory needed, the experience says it all. The main action is at the center, upon the land of the wilderness, the unexplored territory.

Another point to draw attention to is the depiction of other ships on the river of life extending upon a curvy path. Speaking to this notion, this part of the text:.
