The perception of absolute truth is the realisation of God, and with this perception the individual of such attainment requires no earthly attributes. It is conclusive, then, that those whom we know subject to mortal ills are so because they have not attained correct perception. The thinker whose primary perception is erroneous cannot reason to an understanding of absolute truth. The philosophical method by which correct perception is attained is not important, the only essential factor being the perception itself. The thinker, then, should lay aside all prejudice and scan these pages only for such things as will clarify his mental vision. There is material here for the gratification of sordid ambition, suggestions that a mind familiar with mortal ways can conceive misused. But the thinker keen enough to develop these suggestions will be keen enough to see the way to the perception of truth and the wastefulness of unwise accomplishment. The perception of absolute truth--and no man is so base but that he would seize it if he could--requires the correct application of all energy, the elimination of all discord, the accomplishment of harmony with eternal being. The following pages constitute a text to aid the thinker to perceive. Perhaps the key is here. Who Knows? Each thinker for himself must decide.--George Vail Steep. Los Angeles, January 24, 1920.
