Adoration of the One?…

*

“It is a curious attribute of the Chain of Being, that it allowed every class to excel, ‘after its own heart’.”

*

*

“Stones may be considered ‘lowly’ but they ‘trump’ the class above them, plants, in both strength and durability.”

*

*

“Plants, in their turn, though regarded as without ‘sense’, excel all other classes in their ability to harness and store, for nourishment, the energy of the sun.

*

*

“The ‘brute beasts’ possess greater physical strength than man and a ‘purer desire of the heart’, and man himself, being imperfect in the realms of knowledge, excels even the angels in his aptitude for learning.”

*

*

Only the angels, by virtue of their own special gift, the faculty of devotion, can never claim to go beyond the ‘class of being’ that stands above them.
