"Each man bears “a balance within his breast”;
each weighs for himself his karma.

And so now liberally, the living raiment of beauty is offered to all.
And each living rational being, may receive from it a garment,
and cast away from him that ridiculous fear which whispers, “This is not for you.”

One must be rid of that gray fear, mediocrity.
Because all is for you if you manifest the wish from a pure source.

But remember,
flowers do not blossom on ice.
Yet how many icicles do we strew,
benumbing our worthiest striving through menial cowardice."
