SPIRIT ALONE IS SAID TO BE NEITHER EXISTENT OR NON-EXISTENT.
IN THE MANIFEST ASPECT SPIRIT SEEMS TO HAVE FORM AND ALL OF THE QUALITIES OF THE SENSES.

SPITIT IS THAT WHICH CAUSES AND WORKS THROUGH THE THREE TENDENCIES IN NATURE (elevating,activating and heaviness)AND YET IS FREE OF THEM.

SPIRIT IS WITHIN AND WITHOUT ALL CREATURES-UNMOVING YET ALSO MOVING.

SPIRIT IS FAR AWAY(subtle)AND YET VERY NEAR(discernable when in form).

SPIRIT IS INDIVISBLE AND YET SEEMS DIVIDED.

SPIRIT SEEMINGLY CREATES, UPHOLDS, DESTROYS AND RECREATES.

A PERSON WHO COMPREHENDS THIS TRUTH ABOUT SPIRIT IS FREE.

THE FABRIC OF NATURE (MAYA) AND LIFE UNITS (SOULS)ARE WITHOUT BEGINNING-THE BODIES IN NATURE AND THERE VITAL FORCES AND TENDENCIES (to move,act,react,etc) ARE FROM WITHIN THE CHARACTERISTICS OF NATURE ITSELF.

THE SOUL WHICH IS IDENTIFIED WITH THE TENDENCIES IN NATURE BECOMES ATTACHED TO THEM AND THIS IS THE CAUSE OF SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS AND THE ENDLESS ROUNDS OF INCARNATIONS.

SPIRT INDIVIDUALIZED POSSESSING ALL THE CHARACTERISTICS OF PURE BEING.

A PERSON WHO IS ABLE TO REALIZE THIS IS FREE.
