“Come out! Cease being a blind human worm sleeping and dreaming human weakness. Come out of your ages‐old cocoon of delusion! Spread wings of eternal power and splendor, through spiritualizing your ambitions.
“Come out! Be the butter fly of eternity! Let your wings display their innate divine beauty. Let them spread out over all space, entertained by and entertaining everything, everywhere.
“On wings of beauty, fly through the skies of infinity, attracting all toward everything that is most beautiful. Sun‐and‐stardust, glimmering on your wings, banish gloom from every heart as you soar past on your joyous way to your home in Me, O butter fly of eternity !”
