indeed drink of our Master's cup, and be baptized with
his baptism! be purified as by fire, - the fires of suffering;
then hath he part in Love's atonement, for "whom the
Lord loveth He chasteneth."  Then shall he also reign
with him:  he shall rise to know that there is no sin,
that there is no suffering; since all that is real is right.
This knowledge enables him to overcome the world, the
flesh, and all evil, to have dominion over his own sinful
sense and self.  Then shall he drink anew Christ's cup,
in the kingdom of God - the reign of righteousness -
within him; he shall sit down at the Father's right hand:
sit down; not stand waiting and weary; but rest on the
bosom of God; rest, in the understanding of divine Love
that passeth all understanding; rest, in that which "to
know aright is Life eternal," and whom, not having seen,
we love.
   Then shall he press on to Life's long lesson, the eternal
lore of Love; and learn forever the infinite meanings of
these short sentences: "God is Love;" and, All that is
real is divine, for God is All-in-all.
